The Soul of a Game, and Why Time Magazine’s ALL TIME 100 VIDEO GAMES Perhaps Wasn't the Best Idea

Time Magazine posted their top 100 games of all time, but is it possible to choose the best 100 and get consensus?

Top anything will always be relative to each individual person. That is all.

Of course not unless you have the list in a revenue way. In theory they are still the 100 greatest video games because they do there job in generating the most amount of money. Having a list purely based on experience is too difficult for games and there are so many different gameplay mechanics that some love and some hate. Comparing genres is often very difficult

they have to clearly define what makes them the best games, is it influence? Sales? Longevity? Or just opinion?

No, they don't. It's not like they're submitting the list as fact. They don't have to pick one criteria to judge all the games by and say "This is why these 100 are the best," because no matter which criteria you judge them by, you'll be leaving out games that are considered better than those you include.

All told, it's no less of a bad idea than all the "Top 10" lists we get around here, and I'll wager Time's list has more thought put into it than 99% of such articles.

To me what did the list in was that they included Bioshock but not System Shock 2. Granted SS2 did not have Bioshock's sales numbers but there would not be a Bioshock without System Shock 2.
