B2 GOTY confirmed it seems. Glad the inconsistent framerate doesn't spoil it (According to Edge anyways).

Wonder if Smash can score the same when Edge get to it ;)

Obviously there's always scope for argument but that list looks reasonable imo.

Only Galaxy managed to nail two Edge tens in a row before Bayo, right?
Mario 64
Super Mario Galaxy
Super Mario Galaxy 2

Still top dog but Grand Theft Auto also got it for IV and V. Thought the review for IV has some hang ups, allegedly the reviewer gave it a 9 and then someone changed it.

Nice, even if Bayonetta 2 was half as good as the first one, it would still be above excellent.

That is actually a pretty good list. Not sure if I agree with Street Fighter and LittleBigPlanet but still good.

I know I'm taking the bait, but why is Dark Souls #1 when it scored 9/10, and a number of 10/10 games are beneath it?!

they retroactively gave dark souls a ten, along with re4, street fighter 4, red dead redemption and others in the 20th anniversary issue
