Nioh, Horizon, and Zelda taking all the wins. Damn, how stacked has 2017 been already? I hope there's still some left for the rest of the year

If all DLC came tied to $13 figurines, I'd consider all DLC to be free

damn I hope the score is relevant for the Wii U version of the game. I wonder what that will be like performance wise?
Erm you know we have plenty of WiFi footage from e3... Doubt a lot has changed since then. It's not gonna look or run like a 3DS game next to the Switch version.

2017 might be one of those magical gaming years, y'all. Nioh, Horizon, BotW, Nier... and Mario Odyssey, Andromeda have yet to drop.

I said god damn.

Ok that's a solid list.

Bayonetta 2 and Bloodborne have competition this gen. Great that Horizon got a good score aswell. Can't wait to play that and Zelda next week.

Edit:Except maybe GTAIV, I haven't played Skyward Sword so I can't honestly judge it.

Cool score but why did tbey give Skyward Sword a 10? The game, while good and great in many ways, has obvioua flaws on first playthrough. Definitely not a 10.

Zelda BOTW will be the only game I will be playing till I 100% the game!

Horizon/Torment will have to wait.

Please not make this in another "I hate Skyward Sword" thread. -_-

Edge is alwqys harsh on games and bust give them the score they think the game deserves. Doesnt matter what others say or give a game.

I knew it! Another 10 from Edge for Zelda.
Excellent score for Horizon too.
The start of a phenomenal year.

It's just low-level trolling.

I love how Edge still manages to stay relevant in 2017.
Editorial says they were the first outside Nintendo to finish it so it's quite a nice get for them yeah. Nathan said on Twitter it was one of the hardest deadlines he has ever known.

Shit just got real. Also when you look at the history of Edge 10/10 scores, there are now 19, three of which are for Zelda games (Ocarina, Skyward and BotW), and Nintendo also has Mario 64 and Galaxy 1 and 2. Pretty great record. Wonder if Super Mario Odyssey will join the list.
You can bet on Super Mario Odyssey joining the 10 club.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild [10]
Horizon Zero Dawn [9]
Nioh [9]

Hell yes. Bloodborne was their last 10 before that and it was the game of it's year.

Also when the hell will they send Nier review copies? is SE not confident?
