Nintendo was ranked as the second best publisher by Metacritic ratings in 2017. That’s right, the publisher who released two of the highest rated games ever, Super Mario Odyssey and Zelda: Breath of the Wild, didn’t get the top spot.

That went to Bethesda. They released few games and those few weren’t that great: Wolfenstein 2 and Prey weren’t in the same league as Mario and Zelda.

But Nintendo did have a few duds that dragged down their average score in 2017 (we’re looking at you, 1-2 Switch).

Nintendo was also the only publisher to get a 90 rating for three different games in 2017.

Here are the full rankings for 2017:

  1. Bethesda
  2. Nintendo
  3. SEGA
  4. Activision
  5. Capcom
  6. Ubisoft
  7. Sony
  8. Square Enix
  9. Bandai Namco
  10. Koei Tecmo
