Skyrim Becomes First Western Game To Receive Famitsu’s Perfect Score



Since The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim released, the game has enjoyed a scorching reception from fans and critics alike, including a perfect score from PSLS. Famitsu has become the latest member of gaming media to give this great gem a perfect 40/40 score. Even though Skyrim joins a list that already contained 16 games that received perfect scores in the past, its inclusion marks the first time a “western” game receiving such score.

Famitsu reviews games based on scores from four point of views; in short, four reviewers get the task to review the game and at the end tally up the scores from the four people. In order to get perfect 40/40, the game needs to be great enough for the reviewers to brandish 10s – and Skyrim is certainly worthy of such scores.

Many western games, such as Grand Theft Auto IV, FIFA 12, Red Dead Redemption and Modern Warfare 3, came close to receive the perfect scores but they all had to settle for 39/40.

Have you got any objections to Skyrim earning the prestigious perfect score from Famitsu?

I have no ideal, I have been playing Skyrim both non-patched and patched and in both case there are some major issues with the game.

I guess it comes down to how forgiving the reviewers are. I do like the idea of a team that all score the game out of ten, which then is added up to a final score. That should help rule out bias I guess. Still, if a game has bugs, then I dont see how it can get a flawless score at all, because it obviously is not.

While the concept of the game is great, the execution leaves something to be desired there is noway this game should have a perfect score maybe they were grading it on a curve.
