...since that's the score that NBA 2K11 got on GameRankings. IMO, that's a pretty good score. 
According to GameRankings, it seems that a website called GamingExcellence gave the game a score of 95/10. So, judging by the aggregate score, not only is this the game of the year, but it's also the best game ever made, ever. I decided to make a special edition cover in celebration of this monumental score:

Also, screenshots in case GameRankings updates the score :o

fake edit: It looks like they just updated the scores as I was writing this. Oh well :( I still have evidence that at some point in time NBA 2K11 was the best game ever.

Yeah, I saw that a couple of days ago. I can't believe it's taken them this long to sort out such a glaring error.

That first screenshot very obviously ranks it as the 2nd highest overall score.

I believe the full, unedited version of the quote on the cover actually reads "that's nine hundred and fifty percent, motherfucker."

@MattyFTM: Back in 2007, Lee received 25 emails about an incorrect score on a Metroid Prime 3 review. Apparently that's the most he's ever received for a single correction. Says he's never received "more than a handful" of emails about an incorrect score. Although I imagine a decent number of people saw this and had a good laugh, I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't receive a single email about it.
