From your personal point of view, what is the closest a game has ever come to perfect?
Donkey Kong 2: Diddy's Kong Quest didn't come close, it is perfect.
I don't think it's possible for a video game to be objectively perfect, so I'll post my perfect game(s) instead.
Persona 3: FES and Persona 4: Golden are my favorite games of all time, they're basically a combination of all sorts of shit I love.
>Great Character Designs
>Turn-based gameplay that has a neat twist
>Comfy day-to-day gameplay
>Cool inspirations from mythology and Jungian psychology
Power of Friendship
I'll admit that they aren't without flaw, and people who don't like anime/Japan will hate them but I love that stuff.
Not even memeing. It DID get greatest game of ALL TIME btw
Super Mario RPG
Charles Barkley Shut Up and Jam Gaiden
In all seriousness, when it came out Metal Gear Solid 3 quite literally blew me away. I couldn't imagine a game ever engrossing me as much as it did and nothing ever has. If the bosses were as memorable as MGS1 it'd be a perfect 10 for me. Psycho Mantis also at the time was just freaky as shit.
They're the only games I'll never play again. I played them at release and I don't want to play them in case they aren't as good as I remember.
Not my fav game, but it does everything it intended perfectly, it's super fun, surprising, and it has more gameplay than you'd expect. The game has no "bad" part, no problems in the control.
It's overall, pretty much perfect in execution.

two of the most enjoyable games I've ever played
Hey, no problem.
There's a lot of pseudoscience that call themselves "psychology", so keep your eyes open for that in the future.
Jung, for example, believed that "psychic activity" could interact directly with objects, like when he claims his mental activity caused wooden mobilia to crackle. Also, the idea of a collective subconscious flerts with theology.
Undertale has plenty of flaws, mostly from the game side of things. Which is the most important aspect.
If you don't like the characters or their humor, you're not going to like Undertale.
I know this isn't what you're asking, but people handing out 10/10's, especially for shitty reasons, pisses me off. Nothing is perfect goddammit. I don't care how much you love a game, it has flaws. You can still love it just as much even if you admit it, instead of fighting tooth and nail to try and prove it's the second coming of christ.
Symphony of the Night. It's only shortcomings were in the terms of balance, that is, the game could get very, very easy at early stages due to equipment and boost availability.
I found the first one to be OK, and Up Your Arsenal was just more of what this was all about. Still one of my favorite games ever.
Oh and MGS: Sons of Liberty is pretty close to this for me
is it bad that so many of my favourite games happen to be Rockstar titles?
Max Payne 3 (I do love 2 also but I had such a blast with 3)
hell im even replaying LA Noire right now and it's just such a "cool" game. Definately not a 10/10 by any means 'cause it has way too many flaws imo, but for being a fresh and unique experience, it's great.
Apparently Magmoor Caverns got cut down so it just became a connecting tunnel area (which i actually don't mind), the grapple beam is WAY too underutilized and clunky to use and the Ridley fight was a bit too easy, but besides that it's pretty accurate
>Dunhams / whatever those shit tier floating shield knights are called
>Akrham phase 2
>DMD's enemy DT health buff and the fact that enemy DT isn't time based it's based on the number of enemies in the wave that are killed
>the camera in BP being solid cancer
Mind you this is coming from someone that has spent countless hours playing it
several, but most recently Shantae and the Pirate's Curse
What was wrong with Ashley? She behaved in a highly linear way; if she got hit/killed it was usually the players fault.
The shield guys always attacking her made the gameplay more interesting but breaks the story and is pretty cheap
I always thought the island was pretty good, never got why people were down on it.
Not one of my true favorites of all time and maybe a generic choice but it really deserves it in my opinion. Amazing game from beginning to end, also has a great challenge that makes it quite replayable in my opinion. World is also amazing but I personally find it too easy.
I beat Orochi and did a couple dungeons after that. The visual style is interesting and the game is pretty charming, but something about the pace and the combat just didn't really do it for me
I think I also remember not being too fond of the camera.
Again, I didn't have any huge qualms with it, I just kind of ended up getting bored with it.
Fuck I'd really want an original stand up cabinet of smb. I never passed the game in the arcade when I was younger.
Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3
Accessible, highly replayable, and offers balance and challenge from beginners to matter players.
>tfw my I break 6 billion in a single combo, and he beats that by just a few thousand points
