At this point, we should just make Nintendo a permanent fixture in this award. Year after year, no publisher can ever hope to match the combination of quality and quantity which Nintendo offers. Some publishers have released better games, for sure, but over the span of 12 months Nintendo has delivered Smash Bros Ultimate, New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe, Yoshi’s Crafted World, Super Mario Maker, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Tetris 99, Astral Chain, Daemon X Machina, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Luigi’s Mansion 3, and Pokemon Sword & Shield. That’s a hit for every month of the year. Take a bow, Nintendo.
