These selections represent more of a snapshot, a peek at what baseball gaming was like at each specific point in time. It doesn't necessarily mean that the number one game is better, even today, than the number six game. You need to take yourself back to when these games were released and consider their impact and they're importance on the day they hit the scene.
Finally, these lists are always going to contain some personal bias-which is part of the fun. There have been a lot of baseball games released in the past 30 years and some classics just missed our cut. Games like Baseball Stars, The World's Greatest Baseball Game, Ken Griffey Jr. Baseball, World Series Baseball, Tony LaRussa/Old Time Baseball, right down the line. Great games all, but they just missed the Top Ten.
