Xbox 360: Bioshock - Game of the Year?

With a score of 10/10 from 7 different gaming sites, and near-perfect scores from 3 other sites, Bioshock looks to be the game to beat this year. Other contenders might be Halo 3 as voted for by the under-16s, Heavenly Sword for PS3 fans desperate for a success story, Metroid Prime 3 or Super Mario Galaxy by Wii fans, and Crysis being put up by the die-hard PC-only gamers. Just check out the score on Metacritic - Bioshock is the highest-scoring game of all time - so far.

InsideGamer has given Metroid Prime 3 a 10/10 score - and with Bioshock garnering 8 near-perfect scores already - who is going to come out top? I was considering selling my Wii but with Metroid, Super Mario Galaxy and Wii Music coming, I may just hang on to it for a bit more...

''Two games of the same genre, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption for the Wii and BioShock for the Xbox 360 and PC, could both try to end up in the list of the top 10 best videogames of all time. Both first-person adventures, and both pioniers according to critici, are getting nearly perfect scores.

BioShock has gained eight reviews, and the average is about 9,9 out of 10. According to GameRankings, BioShock needs only two reviews with a rate of 9,7 or higher to conquer the title 'best videogame to date'. BioShock would even beat The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - which has been on top of the list for years.

Metroid Prime's first review came from the North-American magazine Nintendo Power, which gives it a perfect score of 10 out of 10. Nintendo Power didn't even gave The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, nor The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, this rating.''
