OK, so it may not be the best game ever. (We all know which one that is). But imagine Gitaroo Man swinging off a rope towards FF3 standing on a pedestal, as if this were Best Video Game Gladiators and we were playing Human Cannonball. GM connects head-on, FF3 gets knocked off balance, sways frantically, but just manages to stay on. That’s how good it is.
Speaking of best game ever, if you haven’t seen The Jaded Gamer’s “100 Greatest Games?” feature, I suggest you do so right now. Thing literally took about four months to complete. Just goes to show you that even the greatest video game of all time can get ripped to shreds if you’re cynical enough.
