By the Numbers: Which Console has the “Best” Games?

I found a great article over at The Exploding Barrell comparing the games for the Nintendo Wii, Sony PS3 and Microsoft Xbox 360.

All across the internet, fanboys argue daily about which console has the best games. While the question is ultimately subjective by nature, that doesn’t stop the xbots, PS3 droids, and Nintendo fans from ranting and raving in defense of their favorite console. The Exploding Barrel has decided to break out the old calculator and do a little number crunching to find out which console indeed does have the highest rated games. Here’s how it works: First, we pulled the top 20 game scores from metacritic (if you don’t believe us, feel free to click on the links) for each console and calculated the mean for each set. Next, we examined cross-console titles to test variations in score for each console. If you don’t agree with these numbers, don’t get mad at us. You can get mad at math you fanboy fool.

Check out all the numbers here.

Plus you have to read a lot of the comments from the fanboy tools at the bottom. It has only been a couple hours, but they've already started the flame wars.
