Messing with the IGN ratings dataset

By | 2014/07/28

I saw this Reddit link via @TextMining_r and I couldn’t resist doing some basic experimentation related to console/platform wars. Which platform was the best in its generation? Most argue it is not about the system itself but the games, so, here is a magnificent ggplot2 graph showing the mean games score for every platform IGN has ever analysed.

Of course, this analysis is inherently biased since every platform has not had the same amount of games released, but it is interesting anyways.
