I did wonder a few weeks ago whether the fact EDGE have given every new proper Mario and Zelda a 10 in the last few years is because they might be all rudderless' reviews.
or some might, or one might, or he's infected other journalists with jolly Nintendo enthusiasm, or it's all conspiracy and it's in journalists interests to convince themselves and everyone else that what new big games are being released are really something great when they're clearly not.
Hello! Had to return to respond to this. I've read some nonsense from you in my time, arv, but this takes the biscuit. I'd be offended if it wasn't so laughable.
Perhaps these games got 10/10 because they are extremely well-crafted and those who wrote the reviews thought they warranted top marks? Just a thought.
Oh, and Herbi - I genuinely think Skyward Sword is the finest Zelda game I've played. Why would I lie about it? Besides, earlier in the thread, when you weren't too far from the end you said this:
10s starting to make real sense now
Given that many of the game's best moments occur towards the end, why are you having such trouble wondering why someone might think it worthy of that score?
At first I thought Suffocate Peon was praising you for your enthusiasm, given that he's always having a moan about brown dull games, and at least Zelda has some nice scenery and colourful characters.
