That is what I thought as well, but I was told publishing the game isn't enough and that the company has to also own the IP. So the reason Ori is on the list is because it was not only published by Microsoft, but they own the IP. Meanwhile, the reason Bayonetta 3 for Nintendo and Death stranding for Sony are not on the list despite them publishing the games, is because they don't own the IP. Its little restrictions like this that invalidate the list. If we are going to include published games from third party developers, either include all of them or don't include any of them. Try to make the list as objective as possible.Agreed.
Also, the chart isn't even complete. As you said VR games Sony's baseball games, as well as 56-rated Predator are left off the list. There's probably some Nintendo and MS ones too. Some of the games on the list are made by third party studios but published by Nintendo/Sony/MS, so it seems that is the criteria.
