    Pig dens was a pun. A bad pun but a pun. The point of pointlessness, pointed to a person purported to be I.

    2. Secret of the monkey island (9/10)

    3.Titanfall 2 (8.5/10)

    4. Fallout 2 (8.5/10)

    5. Megaman X (8/10)

    7. Chrono trigger (8/10)

    8. The witcher 3 (7.5/10)

    9. The last of us (7.5/10)

    If these are the best of the best, why have they not all scored (10/10) ?

    Well, it's been 7 years.
    So let's scratch out The Sims 3 (cause it's an unoptimized mess), Wasteland 2 (it's ok), Metal Dead (it's fiiiiine, @TorontoReign ), Mark Of The Ninja (it's totes ok) and Walking Dead S1 (fuck Telltale's stupid design at this point).

    Meaning I can replace it with 5 whole games!


    • Hitman 2 (don't own 3 yet and don't know if I ever will)
    With season 1 maps it is a full fledged game at this point and is the definition of quality>quantity in my eyes. Each level is absolutely sprawling and contains so much variety in approach for how you wanna take out your targets and the challenges and escalations and user created contract add tons of replayability. The overarching main story is trash tho but who ever played a Hitman game for it's fantastic story anyway? You play the games cause you get to murder people.



    • Subnautica
    It's an open world survival craft game where your giant spaceship crashed on an alien planet that's covered in water and you get to swim around and get nibbled by sharks. The game is great in its game design because of how it encourages the player to explore. And as they find ugrades that take you deeper, well, there's gotta be a deeper yet, innit? How deep does it go...?



    • Prey
    Immersive sim ala System Shock but way better. You get to gloo the walls with your thick white sticky icky and transform yourself into a coffee cup. 8/10 holy shit.



    • Resident Evil 2 (it's fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine)
    This is my new bar for what a survival horror game should be. Miss me with that REvil 4 and Dead Space action bullshit. I want a survival horror game to actually include combat but be very scant about it and focus on surviving limited encounters with limited resources and not go all cowboy yeehaw guncrazy.



    • Psychonauts
    Do you like mentally ill people? So do I! Let's explore their twisted psyche's by telepathically entering their brain matter and see what makes them tick. And while we're at it collect all the collectathon collectibles! Gotta 100% this bitch! Great art style, great music, great characters. A bit short tho.

    Because nothing is perfect. 10/10 is literal perfection. Nothing could possibly ever be wrong with any of it. If it literally has a single bug it is automatically demoted to 9.9/10 at best. While I love a ton of games I can also call them out on their bullshit and admit that they could be improved upon.

    Tell that to Nadia Comaneci, Olga Corset and others that score the perfect 10. A movie called 10, anything can be a 10. Only fussy bastards like you would demote a game to 9.99 cos the hairstyles were not up to scratch, or a slight bug made your vehicle explode :dance:

    PS VTMB was bug ridden at first but is a great game 11/10

    Hmm Gizmo, internet ! I played a game ' Prey ' early 2000's, I think it was. Gravity defying stuff and indigeonous folklore. Kindov

    Because i still never played any game that reached that level. Those are the 10 best games ive played for sure. None of them are 10/10 (i dont give 10/10 only to perfect games)

    10/10 game would be something like Pac-Man Championship Edition. There is literally nothing wrong with the game and it does what it sets out to do making it the best game in the series. If you do not like it just go play Ms Pac-Man and piss off.

    Maybe not the best games I've played, but these are my favorites.
    • Europa Universalis IV
    • Fallout 2
    • Fallout New Vegas
    • Half-Life
    • Hearts of Iron IV
    • METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES
    • The Walking Dead Season one by Telltale (RIP Lee)
    • Wargame: Red Dragon
    • Warno
    • Witcher 3

    P.S Should've probably added Dark Souls to that list, completely forgot that game.

    What did you like about Witcher 3? (Honest question)

    I have had Witcher 3 installed since day one; I won it in a contest before it released. I love Witcher 1, was indifferent to Witcher 2 (quit after the Kraken fight), and never I left the opening tutorial grounds in Witcher 3.

    I have been meaning to play that game ever since, but have never mustered the interest to actually do it. :scratch:

    What made me fall in love with Witcher 3 was primarily the story. I played through the whole game + DLC in a couple of months; it took me about 150 hours. The combat was sufficient enough, a solid 7/10, but nothing fantastic. I was autistic enough to play the first and second games, both of which I enjoyed, especially the card game in Witcher One.;)
    Geralt is such an intresting character, and how he interacts with the world, it feels good not to play an unknown John Doe like in a Bethesda games. The ending made me tear up, Ciri is my darling.

    I grew tired of Witcher 3 by the time I got to the viking island. Like dead tired of the game. It's so... Bloated with fluff? The story is good for a video game but the actual gameplay which is why I play a video game just made me think of other games that were far more fun to play and did it better before Witcher 3 came out.
