22% of 360's good titles are shooters

David Dreger

In response to our article about the percentage of shooter games for the Xbox 360, X3F reader Crazed Geek took it upon himself to see how many good games on the 360 are in the shooter genre. His method of weeding out the less than stellar games involved removing any game that scored under 80 on Metacritic, and produced the above pie chart. So, with TPS and FPS combined, they come in at 22% of the good 360 games, moving up to second behind the Sports genre which continues to lead the pack. So there's some more food for thought, and good shooters still only take up slightly more than a fifth of the better titles available. Crazed Geek also has a nifty Google Spreadsheet with all the games and their metacritic score.
