Ryan McCaffrey's Top 50 Games of All Time

by Ryan McCaffrey:

Being asked to list my all-time favorite games -- when so many of them span drastically different, impossible-to-compare eras -- is an extremely difficult job. Not compared to, say, working construction for a living or doing something else that actually benefits society in a tangible way, but if you ask me it’s simply not fair to compare Halo to Super Mario Bros. 3. Still, I’ve done my best to narrow this down as much as possible, and I got my list down to 11. Sorry, I just couldn’t do ten! I look forward to discussing my picks with you in the Comments below, and be sure to click all the way through to the third page of the feature for the 39 other games on my list that didn’t quite make my top 11.

Solid list but 50 isn't enough.

I'd say 200 is the minimum for an accurate measure of the best games of all time.

I'd prefer a top 500 to be honest.

I've played a ton of games since the late 80's though so maybe that is why.

At least he did 50.

Can't stand the lazy top 10 or even lazier top 5 lists of anything.

Im pretty sure he was just mention the first 50th games that come to is mind that he enjoyed and remember the most.Really if right now someone ask me tell me my 50th most beloved games i will probably could only tell 10 to 20 and most likely i will not remember the one i love most because there are so many games that i did enjoy greatly but i dont remember them anymore i would need run a list and say "yes this one was great that moment..that boss fight...".Its really hard after 30th+ years of gaming to tell and remember all the big moments.

True, although I do remember specific parts of a lot of games I've played, most of it is based on overall impact or feeling the game left me once I had played it a lot of beaten the game.

I wasn't knocking the list, or at least not trying to. Like I said, at least he took the time to include 50.
