A really good list. I have no complaints. (I would add Skies of Arcadia but not a lot of people know that game)
listenkids  +   362d ago
You'd be surprised how may people know the game, itself and Shenmue were supposed to be getting HD releases, Sega just sucks.
coolbeans  +   362d ago
Have they been canceled altogether? O_o

Wanted to get my hands on Jet Set Radio's HD release, but I've already played that and Crazy Taxi before.

Shenmue was amazing. At the time of playing it I had never played anything even close so it was just completely new to me and most of us.
gillri  +   362d ago
My favourite 3D JRPG of all time! Shenmue 1 and 2 are my favourite games of all time..Man I loved the Dreamcast

1. How in the Heck does Vice City make the list but NOT the God-almighty San Andreas.

I liked Vice City I really did but it was CRAP compared to San Andreas. SA was just too refined too great a story too big a map and just flat-out way too much to do. I mean really SA made VC and GTAIII look like rubbish.

2. World of Warcraft? are you friggin serious? this must be some kind of joke right? San Andreas, Elder Scrolls Morrowind, Diablo II, Deus EX don't make the list but FRIGGIN World of CRAPCRAFT makes it.

other than that a good list even though I have NEVER played Chrono Trigger.

No Call of Duty?
iamnsuperman  +   362d ago
I actually agree with you.... Only for COD 4. I played it again recently (offline) and well it is still fun to play. It is actually a really good game. Simple but a lot of fun
Pushagree  +   362d ago
Depends on which one. :P
ifritAlkhemyst  +   362d ago
That list is horribly skewed towards console games.
_QQ_  +   362d ago
No original Starcraft or Diablo 2 lol, but its fine because its based on the reader's votes. Guess the sight doesn't attract many PC gamers.
gillri  +   362d ago
or maybe PC games arent as good? having said that I love many PC games Deus Ex is my second favourite game ever
mandf  +   362d ago
Kingdom Hearts, Super Metroid, Uncharted 2, and Demon Souls are better than some of those.
Capt-FuzzyPants  +   362d ago
It depends on what you like. For me I would have Kingdom Hearts on that list, but I wouldn't put Super Metroid on there because I'm into JRPGs.

I can't bash that list though. Even though I would not put all of them in my top 20 or even like some of them I at least respect all of those games for what they have done and how much people love them.
mandf  +   362d ago
There's only one game on that list I don't agree with. Thank you for a positive response .
cpayne93  +   362d ago
Definitely Demon's Souls.
_QQ_  +   362d ago
In Whos Lifetime are we talking about? no NES Titles?
iamnsuperman  +   362d ago
Crash Bandicoot? I still enjoy playing it. No The Last of US (edit found it my bad)

Apart from that (and I really do not rate RDR) this is a okay list

Uncharted 2 is missing from that list.
And I hope those numbers are not for the ranks. If not, WTF is TLOU doing behind SuperMarioGalaxy or Halo. Where's Journey ?
Ah, yeah... THEIR list. Okay, my bad.
MONKEYDLUFFY  +   361d ago
Galaxy is soooo much better than TLOU. Galaxy is the epitome of gameplay and innovation. TLOU is cliche and generic
monkeyDzoro  +   358d ago
What are you talking about ?
MONKEYDLUFFY  +   358d ago
Zoro I'm your captain and I'm telling you Galaxy is better than TLOU
monkeyDzoro  +   357d ago
LooL
Perjoss  +   362d ago
Very nice list! Portal 2 was a better game than Portal though, and Read Dead Redemption should be at number one :)

It's a shame Heavy Rain, Uncharted 2 and Lost Odyssey didn't make it on there.

Also, Vice City instead of GTAV or San Andreas?

RDR wouldnt make my top 20 :/
WeAreLegion  +   362d ago
So tired of Ocarina winning this. It's a good game, but Jesus. Conker's was a better game on the same system. So many better games out there.
ifritAlkhemyst  +   362d ago
Most of the children who started with the N64 and probably contributed to this list were never allowed to play Conker.

Goldeneye was not as good as Jet Force Gemini, and OoT was not as good as Conker, which was not as good as Majora's Mask.

Just my $0.02.

limbo
king_george  +   362d ago
this is one of the very few lists I actualy agree with. a lot of very good games on there from the old days as well as todays awesome games. well done
Eyeco  +   362d ago
Goldeneye..Really? I'm tired of this games default top 10 status, hasn't anyone played it recently ? It's aged horribly, people are so blinded nostalgia.
kingduqc  +   362d ago
Guys it's based on popularity contest, not how good the game is.

So basically all that this tells us is witch games are the most popular.
LoveOfTheGame  +   361d ago
Take off TLOU, Dark souls, Ico, and FF7. Do a little reordering(RE4 back and SOTC/Chrono trigger up) and we got a good start going.

Clarification: TLOU is great but not all time great, Demon souls > Dark souls, Ico - meh, and we all know FF7 is not the greatest final fantasy.

Edit: I agree with Eyeco, Goldeneye was not even the best FPS made by that company for the same console. Perfect Dark anyone?
