"Koizumi is better than us? What a laughable possibility!"

Love it or loathe it, Metacritic is here to stay. The site collates review scores for thousands of films, TV shows and of course video games, but while the site is the source of plenty of debate it has given rise to an entertaining pastime: Metacritic Top Trumps.

The site was recently updated to allow you to see average Metacritic career scores for game developers, letting you pit the best designers in the world against each other. So how do Nintendo's best stack up against each other?

Nintendo's biggest name, Shigeru Miyamoto, comes out with a career Metascore of 80, his score brought down by his involvement on 46-scoring Donkey Kong Barrel Blast.

Legend of Zelda man Eiji Aonuma has a monumental score of 91, his lowest score a 73 for the GBA version of Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.

Even more impressive is the career score of Yoshiaki Koizumi, with an average review score of 92 thanks to his work on Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario Galaxy 2.

To find out the career metascore of your favourite designer, head over to Metacritic and type their name in the search box. Is there anyone whose score beats 92?
