Metacritic the popular review and scoring website that collates reviews of music albums, games, movies, TV shows and DVDs, calculating a score out of 100 for each item, has now started rating game developers. Metacritic has now begun to provide listings of specific individuals credited for a games development on their site, then gives each developer an average percentage score for their career.
The scores are very interesting and do show a number of talented game developers such as : Peter Molyneux (82), Hideo Kojima (83), Cliff Blezinski(86), Warren Spector (82), John Romero (75), and John Carmack (78).
The experience of a developer is a little hard to gauge within the scores. For instance a new developer might have one good game with a high scores where are a more experienced game developer might have more games but a couple of bad eggs will reduce their overall score. What do you think? Is it a good idea to start score developers?
