By The Numbers: PlayStation LifeStyle’s Highest Scored Games (Part Three)

August 24, 2017 Written by Tyler Treese

2016 best games

PlayStation LifeStyle has been around for nearly 10 years, and I figured a fun way to kickoff our new statistical-driven feature By the Numbers would be to take a look at some of the lowest scores we’ve handed out to games over the years. Some readers asked to see the highest reviewed games, and there ended up being a lot more games that got awarded a 10 than a 1. Due to that, I’m separating this feature into a few parts (if you missed them, make sure to read the first and second parts).

In the third of three parts, we’re taking a look at the games that received the prestigious 10/10 score in 2015 through the present day. The past two and a half years have been filled with great games, but only seven titles were able to grab our top score.

With that said, check out the seven games in those two and a half years that were able to capture the reviewers’ hearts and have PlayStation LifeStyle give them a 10/10 rating below:

I’ve included the reviews for each game in the slideshow above. So, if you want to learn why each game earned their 10/10 rating then read the full text. As the great Dave Meltzer often says, “reading is your friend.”

Let us know in the comments what titles you thought were 2016 best games!


By the Numbers is a new weekly recurring feature that’ll look at gaming from a numbers-oriented view. Next week we’ll be back with a look at Sony’s first-party studios.
