Influential video game review aggregation website Metacritic now grades individual game developers.

It collects the score distribution of developers and works out an average career score.

Industry legend Shigeru Miyamoto, creator of the Super Mario, The Legend of Zelda and Donkey Kong series, has a career score of 80.

Bet he regrets being a supervisor on Donkey Kong: Barrel Blast now.

Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima beats Miyamoto with a career score of 83.

Populous, Black and White and Fable main man Peter Molyneux is on 82.

Metacritic determines whether a game developer played a part in the creation of a game by having a gander at the credits entered on GameFAQs, which, like Metacritic, is owned by CBS.

To discover a developer's career score, simply type his or her name into Metacritic's search box.

    This is going to expose some real salty ass devs and overrate some of the wackest to ever do it. I saw Cliffy B higher than Miyamoto, punk trying to save face by tweeting that it's wrong while secretly thinking it's true. It's a good idea though, tired of seeing some big name dev attached to the project then when the game is ass, the dude tries to wash his hands of it all like he wasn't part of it. Im looking at you Specter and Miyamoto (Wii Music broke his soul)

    Metacritic has axed its controversial developer career scores following complaints and criticism from the game press and industry.

    Yesterday reports emerged that Metacritic had begun collecting the score distribution of developers and working out an average career score.

    It determined whether a game developer played a part in the creation of a game by having a gander at the credits entered on GameFAQs, which, like Metacritic, is owned by CBS.

    Miyamoto had a career score of 80, Kojima 83, and Molyneux 82.

    Now, individual career scores are no more, and Metacritic founder Marc Doyle has explained the decision.

    "Although our credits database (which is powered by our sister site GameFAQs) is growing, as our users' feedback has indicated, it is a work in progress and is not nearly as comprehensive as it needs to be to accurately provide a career score for these individuals," he said.

    "As such, we have removed that career score from the pages dedicated to creative individuals behind games on Metacritic. We are still very much committed to building a credits database, and welcome your participation in that process."

    The career score move was, Doyle explained, part of an overarching attempt to "allow our users to discover new products by exploring other titles by the creative teams behind the movies, games, TV shows, and albums our users enjoy".

    Metacritic has in recent years become an important part of the video game industry.

    Game developer bonuses are sometimes linked to game Metascores, and publishers view the magical 90 plus review score average as indication of a successful product.
