Project Description

In this project, you'll analyze video game critic and user scores as well as sales data for the top 400 video games released since 1977. You'll search for a golden age of video games by identifying release years that users and critics liked best, and you'll explore the business side of gaming by looking at game sales data.

Your search will involve joining datasets and comparing results with set theory. You'll also filter, group, and order data. Make sure you brush up on these skills before trying this project!

    I just started to learning Data Analyst for REAL after I trying find my path to growing up. This project might be another way to practice but it's absolutely important, And Data Camp makes it easier to learn!

    An ok little opportunity to practice some concepts learned throughout the sql data analyst career track, but far too short and easy. It would be good if the final project was a bit more challenging and demonstrated a wide range of techniques so that users could add this to a portfolio to showcase their newly learned skills

"Good job, DataCamp!"
