Just another case of judging a game by how much fun you had with it. Just because you felt emotionally attached to the characters and story doesn't mean it's a good game. THE CORE OF A GAME IS ITS GAMEPLAY. Story and characters are icing on the cake. For fucks sake, NEVER JUDGE A GAME BY HOW MUCH FUN YOU HAD WITH IT. Judging a game should be from a neutral and logical perspective, not an emotional one.
Addressing the contents of the comments section. I'd give GTA V a 9.5, TLOU an 8.5 and Bioshock Infinite an 8.

The make and quality of a game doesn't directly translate into how much fun you have with it. Gothic 3 is a game that I'd give a 6/10 and I played that for about 60-70 hours. Starcraft 2, a game that I gave a 9/10, I spent playing for about 2 hours.
The problem with judging games by how much fun you had with it is your tendency to push your personal feelings towards somebody else and the cause of many flame wars.
Look at them for what they are than what they are to you, because the world doesn't revolve around you.

From on outside view this may be a logical approach to rating anything. However you forget to grade them on the basis of why they were created in the first place, which is to entertain. If you like and have fun with a game more then one of higher quality does that not mean the game has higher entertainment value to you? If a ton of people are telling you that they feel the same then does that not mean that your opinion is not completely biased? If your opinion is not biased and the game holds more entertainment value does that not make it the better game?
I have not played either game yet. No game deserves a perfect rating, but no game deserves to be graded on every value except entertainment value.
Spyro is a great game yet if we were to grade it on everything but entertainment Fable 3 would be the "better" choice.

I'm not saying it is wrong to grade entertainment values, what I'm saying is it is wrong to grade games according to entertainment values and push it on to the public. I'm not saying opinions are wrong. Opinions are the sole reason why I condone rating games on their entertainment value.
"This cake reminds me of my mother's cooking" is a purely personalized opinion. This is an observation on the individual's emotional experience than the quality of the cake.
"This cake has a smooth texture" is an opinion that is focused on the cake. Even though the individual is basing this on his experience, it is an observation about the quality of the cake. Whether or not people like smooth textures, the cake has it and you can't deny it.
Rating a game on it's entertainment value can be compared to the latter--an observation on the individual than the game. What may be fun to one isn't fun to the other. I'm not saying this because emotions are unimportant, quite the contrary actually. We must value everyone's emotions, hence we mustn't give it a score based on our own emotional response but an unbiased and logical one so that everyone may carry an opinion without conflict.
TL;DR- Emotional observations must be kept inside your mind; they are yours and yours alone to cherish. If you want to share an opinion, base it on logical though and neutrality.

I believe what he means is that you shouldn't give a game a perfect score solely because you thought it was fun or 0/10 because you didn't like it.
There are plenty of games I've had a lot of fun with, but I still recognize their flaws enough to know it's not a perfect game. Same applies to games I thought were terrible or just didn't enjoy, I'm not going to give it a 1 or 0/10 unless it was literally unplayable, as most games have at least one semi-redeeming quality about them.

Totally agree, I really didn't feel Last of Us deserved the good reviews it got. I mean yes, it was a great game and probably one of the best that came out this year. But the gameplay was nothing new from what other post-apocalipse games did, it was just a good storytelling game. It definitely explored a lot of the interaction of our emotions with the character development in the game, but honestly, not groundbreaking as people say it is. What separates games with other media is its interactivity and just like you I totally agree gameplay is most important.
I don't really have much of a opinion on GTA V since I am sadly a PC user and my ps3 is not working anymore. But from what I've seen in Twitch and people's reviews, I think its biggest appeal is the sandbox gameplay it has. I am not really attracted to the sandbox genre but I guess America/Europe tend to like these kind of RPGs.
Like you I would give BI an 8, Last of Us a 8.5, GTA V haven't played it so no score.
