On the regular 1 to 10 rating system on most review sites, they usually give more than one game a “perfect” rating. However, by the logic of 10/10 being truly perfect, there should be only one game that could ever amass that sort of rating. However, since 10/10’s are given rather hastily by video game review sites (in my opinion), we sort of look past the flaws in a game, due to a rating that calls a game “perfect”.
Answering the subject line of whether there is a game I could call perfect: yes, but only within the game qualities that I can see. I know at some point, someone will make a game that WILL shatter everything that I thought I knew about perfection in video games, but until then, the only game I truly see as perfect is..
Yoshi’s Island… Atleast, in the grouping of 2D games.
I see yoshi’s island as a game that completely nails every aspect of a game that is important.
- The art style is so gorgeous, that I can never see it aging
- The gameplay and controls are extremely fresh, and there is not another game that can transition between level types so perfectly due to its fluent and fun controls
- The enemies are extremely vivid and exciting. Not to mention, the final bowser fight is what I see as the greatest boss fight ever. Such a looming danger on the horizon, made possible due to Mode 7
That is all I can think of right now to gush on such a good game.. However, I would like to hear what you guys think of the 10/10 rating that review sites give, what you think is a perfect game, or if there even is a perfect game. I’d love for their to be more open discussions about games like this on the forums in the future.
