In my honest opinion, there’s only 2 games that I consider to be absolutely, 100% perfect. What might those games be you ask (or don’t, I don’t know)?
Kingdom Hearts 2 and Half-Life 2.
Only 1 game have I played in all the years since KH2 came out that I felt came the closest to being perfect, and that was Red Dead Redemption.
So, since none of you asked, that’s my standard of how I judge video games. If they’re as good as Red Dead, they’re near perfect. If they’re as good or better than Kingdom Hearts 2 or Half-Life 2, they’re perfect games.
Unfortunately for games everywhere, nothing is knocking Half-Life 2 off of the pedestal I’ve placed it on. Not a damn thing.
