Due to rating inconsistencies with IMDb scores and the implemented user rating system, it becomes apparent that a score of 10/10 is marginally unrealistic, as the top films on IMDb tend to be capped roughly at 9~/10.
I firmly believe there's a fine difference between a score of say: 8, 8.5 and 9; a noticeable one I might add. Thereby, lacking fine tuning in rating.
An 8.5 has become synonymous with certain films and usually represents a masterpiece or to say the least, a truly magnificent film; whereas an 8 tends to be more of a really good film.
Consider the way I've chosen to rate films as such in order to stay compatible to IMDb's weighted mean and true Bayesian estimate used in the top-250 list:
w = IMDb Weighted Mean
u = User vote
w = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 - 6.9, 7 - 7.5, 8, 8.5, 9]
u = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
8. Very Good
10. A Masterpiece
If you want a more general list without bias (in which I agree mostly with) you should just go ahead and check out the Top 250 list here on IMDb.
This list only takes into account for the games that I've played.
They are now somewhat sorted in order, of course it's hard to compare a lot of games since they are unique in their own way.
Games that don't exist on IMDB will be added here:
Cave Story (2004)
