Fans react to the top-rated Games List on Twitter

From this list, It Takes Two grabbed the first spot with a 90% rating followed by Metroid Dread, Deltarune: Chapter 2, and Forza Horizon 5 at 89%, 88%, and 87% respectively. The list was filled with mostly Nintendo and Xbox exclusives, along with some PC titles from Steam.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart was the only PlayStation exclusive to make the list in sixth place with a score of 87%. This rating is on the same level as compared to Psychonauts 2 and Forza Horizon 5, which also got 87%.

Many fans were disappointed with the list and claimed that some of the deserving games did not make it. Some felt that games like Resident Evil: Village should have been at the top of the list, while others claimed that the rating for Forza Horizon 5 was unjustified.

This is an agreeable opinion because Forza Horizon 5 indeed had a great start upon release and displayed immense potential to become one of the best games within the series and in race simulation.
