It is well known that the human race has always had an eye for the top. From sports to kings, across all industries and platforms, we are obsessed with positioning a select few at the very top, dubbing them as the best. It is this obsession with greatness that is a reflection of our drive as a species, and as individuals.
In an ever-changing world, metrics and statistics take the front seat as the arbiter of the best. The best surgeons will have the most successful surgeries. Wayne Gretzky has tallied the most points out of any NHL hockey player of all time, and by a wide margin. These metrics, because of their cold, hard objectivity, are never technically wrong. They can’t lose, because they just are. No opinions or relativism is taken into account, because numbers can never stray from the the truth, for so long, they have been the truth. But what numbers do you use to determine the best in the app store?

If you clicked on this article, I’m sure that you were either 1) Just curious, or 2) looking for an answer that you may have been expecting. In that case, Pokemon Go has been downloaded globally over 500 million times in less than a year, so case closed. The dispute has been ended once and for all, and the king reigns supreme. Pokemon Go is the best.
But wait, Pokemon Go has a lot of problems too, and it piggy-backed off of an established IP. You’re saying it’s that easy to crown an objective champion in a multi-billion-dollar industry filled with titles that are constantly pushing limits and paying thousands just for a few impressions?
If you aren’t satisfied with that answer, neither am I. And so it becomes necessary to continue the search and uncover what truly is the best. Metrics may be important in many instances, however not in this case. Numbers on a dashboard, simply put, will never portray a game accurately. All they do is bear the fruit of your marketing/press/monetization composition, no matter how poor or calculated it was. So would it be wise to throw metrics out the window when positioning mobile games into rank? Does objectivity have a place in the mobile platform? Can you rank mobile games at all? Game development is the highest form of art, from the plot to the level design and the assets. Art can not be measured, and opinions are the only thing that have a say in what the best could be due to mobile games being published to a diverse and sophisticated consumer base.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, making it very hard to find the best game, ultimately because there may just not be one.
