Ow the edge as usual. Will be hard for Elden Ring don't win the GOTY, but will see.

God of War: R or Starfield are best contenders that we know of, I'd say. If either of those challenge ER then it will be one hell of a year for games.

The GT7 score is surprisingly high considering its Edge. Its the best GT, sadly I don't play it much because I still play ER.

Elden Ring banter is becoming the new console war.

Some might not think it a solid ten, but even math proves a 9.9999~ = 10

Decided to install Norco after reading this, seems like it's good.

Not sure about this Flintlock hype, Ashen was ... interesting but kinda broken gameplay wise and it felt really low budget. I'll give it a chance (since it's on GP anyway) but not expecting anything revolutionary.

If Eldern Ring doesnt deserve a 10 then i dont know what game does.
Unless you're referencing how strict Edge scores are and you expected them to give a lower score.
It's hardly better than trilogy games and they didn't get a 10 ! :)
It's a 10 compared to other modern games but it's far from perfect and I have some issues with it like repeated bosses, weird balance and so on.
I still had great fun playing it for 90 hours but I am not blind to issues.
I am happy with giving it a 10 but I don't think objective official outlet should close an eye for all the problems

Don’t sleep on Kirby. It’s one of the most video-gamey video games I’ve played since the SNES era, in that it was designed from the ground up to be fun and enjoyable instead of keeping you “engaged” with grindy bullshit. It’s got some fantastic and catchy music too.

The balance is why it deserves a 10 IMO.
I hate how a lot of games level all the enemies up with you, struggling against some whilst stomping others is what makes Elden Ring a masterpiece.
Not like that. The idea is good. The world does not scale with you (just like it didnt in every pre oblivion games like morrowind) but the amount of souls you get is weird and the time you visit some places can make it too easy.
In limgrave, you kill a boss and get 1000 souls and then it gives 3k souls as a normal enemy a bit later. Or other way around.
I don't think the rewards always match the challange.

The fact that world is not scaling is superb though. I hate that scaling crap

Makes me happy to see this, EDGE is so on point with Elden Ring, it’s the most deserved 10 in years and currently on my top 5 list for the best games of all time. 🥳
