Mad Max: Fury Road 4/5

Pretty intense from start to finish, feels a bit like playing Bloodborne. Crazy effects and action, but Mad Max as a character was somewhat lacking. Also one non-stop chase scene leaves you quite shell-shocked, I would have appreciated more downtime and character development myself but I can see why they did it that way. It is an impressive film but not exactly my kind of flick.

Obviously there is no perfect game objectively, but I guess a 10/10 game is one that had no flaws that impacted my experience whatsoever.

  • Skyrim - Best game ever made, even the glitches were amazing(giants launching you into the air etc.).
  • Dark Souls - The best of the souls games, a series I love.
  • Mass Effect 2 - My favorite Bioware game, loved the characters and writing.
  • Batman Arkham Asylum - Just a fantastic game, great gameplay, exploration and atmosphere.
  • Resident Evil 2 - I love the old school Resident Evil's and this one is my favourite with REmake a close second.
  • Sonic The Hedgehog 2 - Fun platformer with incredible soundtrack and levels.
  • Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver - I love the atmosphere and story telling of this game.

I'm probably forgetting something. There are plenty of 9/10 games I can think of that just have enough flaws to me that stop me putting them up.

Top 5

  1. Dark Souls (10) - Overall best experience/atmosphere
  2. Dark Souls 2 (9.5) - Great weapon variety and improved combat but average atmosphere and level design
  3. Demon Souls (9) - Fantastic game but outdone by the Dark Souls games
  4. BloodBorne (7) - Incredible graphics and atmosphere, combat is too fast and stressful for me to enjoy.
  5. Lords of The Fallen (6) - Janky but enjoyable in some ways

Order Played

  1. Demon Souls - Played it when it came out but got nowhere, then when Dark Souls came out it encouraged me to finish it. Been an addict ever since.
  2. Dark Souls
  3. Dark Souls 2
  4. Lords of the Fallen
  5. BloodBorne

I've been watching all the Miyazaki movies. The last one I watched was Ponyo. Although it's far from his best and is his most child focused movie, it's still beautiful and has some incredible scenes, specifically the scene where Ponyo runs across the ocean after Sosuke. 9/10

Finally Dark Souls II gets its dues, this is a far better top 10.

Everyone's lists are going to be so different this year, this should be entertaining. Mine...

Yea knight Enchanter makes you unstoppable, you can take on dragons 1v1 when the rest of your team dies off. I didn't mind it though because I was sick of the combat by that point in the game, I was able to just plow through the rest of the game.

I think Blackwalls tombstone in the fade said his worst fear was himself. There definitely is some clever attention to detail in the game.

I know they won't pick Dark Souls II so I'm fine with whatever they pick. I was disappointed by most of the games this year so the likelyhood one of those games win is high ha ha.
