    Nier is the poster child for awesome game that (western) critics shit all over. It has some of the best written characters I have seen and an incredible storyline with a top notch soundtrack. Graphically it's pretty lousy and the combat is nothing special, though that doesn't stop people from loving Elder Scrolls and old-school Fallout games (the sequel NieR Automata really nailed the combat though thanks to Platinum Games' involvement). Overall the writing makes the game a 9/10 IMO while critics like Gamespot gave it 5/10. Not really a hidden gem any more though since everyone knows NieR Automata, which made this game go from the $5 bargain bin to $30+ used.

Maytricks is championship hall of fame coach player and Solo mans is very much suck so why they talk. I ask if why Matrix is piss at washroom of Champions and Marions say he is bring the champions to Toronto in trade and play against fake superman start on son day. Solomans leave washroom and Voshkill cum in to piss with Maytricks and hugs and says welcome to dinosaur team and championship time.

    I'm going back a ways, and I honestly don't remember what critics said, but the game I think of is Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines. It sold poorly and Troika Games went out of business afterwards. The game really shined after fans patched it.

    On a side note, I just now realized a sequel is in the works.

    I haven't played either of these, but I keep hearing about them lately. Characters and story are what matter to me most in a game, so I'm increasingly thinking I'll need to add these to my list. Is the sequel as strong as the original in terms of story?

    The sequel has a great story but not as good as the original. The combat and skill customization is much better in the sequel and the soundtrack is better too. The sequel NieR Automata is one of the nine or so games I have ever played that I'd rate 10/10 (the only other game this gen I'd rate 10/10 is Bloodborne).

    What would you say has changed between generations which has caused a decline in quality (being as you only rated 2 games this gen with 10/10)?

    It hasn't declined in quality at all; in fact it has gone up IMO. The only game last gen I'd give a 10/10 to was Skyrim. If I broke down a list of my 10/10 games by generation they'd go:

    Eighth Gen: Bloodborne (PS4), NieR Automata (PC)
    Seventh Gen: The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim (PC)
    Sixth Gen: Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne (PS2)
    Fifth Gen: Fallout 2 (PC), Half Life 1 (PC)
    Fourth Gen: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (SNES)
    Third Gen: Super Mario Bros 1 (NES), Shinobi (Arcade)
    Second Gen: <none>
    First Gen: <none>

    never got the hate for these games tbh. i know bb was pissed about the graphical downgrades but its not like it has trash graphics on PC. but it's pretty much GTA with hacking and the 2nd one although i did not enjoy the story as much has a wide array of fun gadgets and shit to hack the environment. i hope they make a 3rd

    Nice list. I never had a chance to play Fallout 2. I'm not sure I could give Skyrim a 10/10 myself because of its insane glitches as well as an emphasis on "breadth over depth," but it's undeniably an amazing game in the areas where it excels.
