268w ago - 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 Metacritic page 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 here, 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.

Even better Crysis Warhead is coming out, and I'm sure that you can put that good old best buy gift card to good use. That's unless your planing on getting Star Wars the same day. The modding community is been ever expanding.
This morning we posted about a portal gun for the game that would allow you to teleport yourself. Now we have something more visual that may please the eyes. The mod community has been working on config files for the game for the past year. One member known as [HP] has done a fantastic job of polishing up the file to maximize your graphics.
Yes, that's right you can achieve graphics beyond the highest setting currently available. The hefty requirements are that you have a Nvidia 8800 graphic card, as well as 2GB of ram. What makes this config file better than the current one installed on your computer?
- Better shadows
- Parallax Mapping
- Very high quality textures, terrain and vegetation
- Lightning improved
- High Quality particles
- Tweaked Lods for best FPS/Quality relation.
Still not convinced to use that best buy card to go purchase the...
