Forums - Gaming Discussion - Bayonetta 2 the only new game this holiday to score 90+!

Because of its supposed importance and the fact it weights, outright declines good review sites and accepts mock ones (like that awful guy that rates every game 2/10).


Makes sense. Is GameRankings the same way?

Yay! Nice one Nintendo and Platinum! Hopefully it will some or a lot of GOTY awards.

Buying it on January, too much games to play.




Pocky Lover Boy! 

Smash will be up there. Not sure about the others..

I don't know if they weight, or have iffy practice when it comes to accepting/declining sites, but they're certainly not used as a measure of publishers and the likes I don't think.

So far.


All the big games are out aside for a few. Also all year there arent exactly that much 90+ that arent ports/remakes/etc.

Congratz to Platinum so far though.



Between Smash, Far Cry, and LittleBigPlanet, I'm guessing two of those three will wind up at or above 90. Don't really know what to expect from the others.

GOTYs should be interesting this year, since many of the highest-rated and most high-profile releases of the year were rereleases (MCC, TLOU, GTA), and therefore will most likely be disqualified from contention, and most of the uber-hyped AAA blockbusters (Titanfall, Destiny, Watch_Dogs) were underwhelming.

What we're left with are a few relatively niche games vying for attention. The only really big game left is... Smash Bros... and for that reason I kind of hope it doesn't win. I'd rather see Dark Souls, Bayonetta, LittleBigPlanet, Shovel Knight, or something else along those lines be recognized.



Well, Bayonetta 2 is definitly a very enjoyable game. It deserves the praise.



smash and far cry are strong contenders



Dragon Age: Inquisition Meta score is currently at 89 with 20 reviews. That's another game that could be in the 90+ club
