What would you say is the greatest game of all time? Super Mario World? The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time? Halo? If so, you'd be wrong, if you were to believe Metacritic.
So this is just strange. The new WiiWare game, World of Goo, which was released to fairly little hype this past Monday, is now apparently one of the highest rated games of all time, according to Metacritic.
One look at the http://www.metacritic.com/games/platforms/wii/worldofgoo for the game will show that the game has an overall reviews average of 97, with three perfect scores and three that are in the '90s range. This puts the game in a position where it could actually take the title of "highest rated game of all time".
I haven't bought WoG yet, but seeing as how there's a free demo for the pc version available http://news.bigdownload.com/2008/10/15/download-world-of-goo-demo/, there's really no excuse for anyone to miss out.
It seems insane that this game would top the likes of Super Mario Galaxy, so I'm sure that once more reviews come in the score average will go down, (there are ALWAYS haters) but it's extremely interesting that this game has blown every other game released this year, including the oft-hyped LittleBigPlanet, completely out of the water score-wise.
