"Perfect" 10s

Post by CWS »

If you had to rate every game you've ever played on a scale from 1 to 10, how many would you actually rate a full 10 out of 10? And which ones would they be?

Mind you, this does not mean the games in question have to be without any flaws whatsoever. Only that their strengths, in your view, so outweighed their weaknesses that they might as well have been flawless, or that you felt truly raised the bar for their entire genre. Games that you can play for hours, days, weeks or even months on end, and never grow tired of or lose your appreciation for.

Anyway, here are mine.
  • Batman: Arkham City (Xbox 360, Xbox One)
  • Bioshock (Xbox 360, Xbox One)
  • Borderlands 2 (Xbox 360, Xbox One)
  • Castle of Illusion (Genesis)
  • Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (Playstation, Xbox 360)
  • Chrono Trigger (Super NES, DS)
  • Final Fantasy IV (Super NES, Playstation, Game Boy Advance, DS)
  • Gears of War 2 (Xbox 360)
  • Gears of War 3 (Xbox 360)
  • Gunstar Heroes (Genesis, Xbox 360)
  • Halo 3 (Xbox 360, Xbox One)
  • Halo: Reach (Xbox 360)
  • The Legend of Zelda III: A Link to the Past (Super NES)
  • Mass Effect 2 (Xbox 360)
  • Metal Gear Solid (Playstation)
  • Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence (Playstation 2)
  • Metroid 3: Super Metroid (Super NES)
  • Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millennium (Genesis, Playstation 2, Xbox 360)
  • Resident Evil 4 (GameCube, Playstation 2, Xbox 360)
  • Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory (Xbox)
  • Starcraft II (PC)
  • Super Street Fighter II (arcade, Super NES, Playstation 2)
  • Street Fighter Alpha 3 (Playstation, Playstation 2)
  • The Walking Dead (Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I never give games a 10/10 because I feel that score represents perfection, an ultimate goal to aspire to, but something that will forever remain out of reach. The thought of us humans producing something utterly flawless when we ourselves are hopelessly flawed is a pipe dream. That said, a great game tries to climb up as close as possible to that perfect score, so I'll give you the 9/10s I've played all the way through:

Assassin's Creed 2
Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag
Batman: Arkham City
Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2
Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Halo 3
Halo Reach
Mass Effect 2
Sid Meier's Civilisation 5
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
Star Wars: Republic Commando
Star Wars: X-Wing Alliance
Total War: Shogun 2
Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines (with the fan-made patch)
XCOM 2

I agree, which is why I said that wasn't the criteria I was going by, here...but, I get your point.

Besides which, you have a number of my personal favorites on your list, as well. :ugeek:
