According to this Next-Gen piece, February 2003 was the best ever month for average review scores, and February has seen the highest review scores on average for the past six years.
According to the site:
- February turns out to have the best average review scores at 70.6%.
- August is a closer runner-up at 70.2%
- May through July are rotten, with averages from 65.0% up to 66.2%.
- December – unsurprisingly – is the absolute worst, with a stinky 64.1%
Nice piece, but there are no graphs, only a coloured chart. Matt Matthews, the guy that puts these stats features together for Next-Gen has clearly peaked, being out-graphed by a Neogaf poster last month, of all things.
New NPD data’s due this week, Matt. If we don’t get the best graphs ever, we’re going to be tagging your analysis as “scrap heap”.
