Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has become the first game developed in the West to receive a perfect 40/40 score from weekly Japanese consumer games mag Famitsu.

Just another notch in Skyrim's pick-axe, so to speak.

It's probably just because there are dragons.

Sell outs.

The game is great, but not worth a perfect score.

While thats great that skyrim got the 40/40 from them, it doesnt mean jack ♥♥♥♥ when they gave mordern warfare 2 the exact same score and that they havent been a great mag for reviews since 2002

Actually, the post clearly states this is the first Western-made game that has received a perfect score. They then list all the games that did:


"Former developers to claim the crown include
Nintendo (Ocarina of Time, Wind Waker, Nintendogs, New Super Mario Bros Wii, Pokemon Black and White and Skyward Sword),
Nacmo (Soulcalibur), Square Enix (Vagrant Story,
Final Fantasy XII, Dragon Quest IX,
Konami (Metal Gear Solid 4, MGS Peace Walker),
Sega (Bayonetta) and Capcom (Monster Hunter Tri)."

Doesn't mean anything to me. Not sure how it got a 40/40 with the worst UI I've ever seen, God knows how many glitches, difficulty balance issues, very little quest depth, etc etc...

It's a fun game worthy of sinking God knows how many hours into... but perfect? Far from it.

Famitsu lost all credibility for me when they rated FF 13 39 / 40.

That was a terrible game, and is infact, 1 of the few games I simply got bored with and never completed.
