A 10 does not mean a game is perfect, but it does mean that it’s a game we believe everyone should play.
In our opinion, no game can be considered perfect. That means you may see a game getting a 10 despite having issues. It also means that games without obvious flaws may be scored below 10. On the rare occasion when we publish a 10 review, that is our way of saying that no matter your preference for genre, developer, setting, or console, you owe it to yourself to find a way to play the game in question.
From Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Breath of the Wild to Persona 5 Royal and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, here is every game that GameSpot has given a perfect score since 1998. Every one of these games comes highly recommended from us, and are still worth playing today.
