Intense tennis matches, a terrorist blasting first person shooter and a fat Italian plumber are but a few of the best games ever made.
in MY eyes MGS4 (and im still only two chapters in) imense,unrivalled,beautiful,u nsurpasssed,unbelievable graphics,story is intense,intelligent,the game kojima wanted to make 10 years ago disagree all you want mgs4 is number 1 in MY opinion
Don't you think it's a bit early to start adding MGS4 to "best of all time" lists? I'm all for it if it stands the test of time, but come on - the game's been out for like, a day and a half. Talk about jumping the gun.
FredFredrickson..agreed, way to early to call it one of the best of all time.
No it isn't too early. I just finished Chapter 4 and there is no doubt. Greatest game ever. It should occupy the top two slots because there isn't anything close. When you play this game and realize the detail, the production values (thru the roof) and the fact there is $200 worth of game in that box you won't be a doubter.
i'm not really to call MGS4 the best game of all time yet simply because i haven't finished it yet. but i will say it is the best game i haven't finished yet, of all time....if that makes sense. lol EDIT: there's no way GTA4 should be on this list. it isn't even the best game in the series. San Andreas was 1000x's better, i played that game for months. i haven't touched GTA4 since i completed the story mode. i don't care how much detail went into the game, it's boring as hell and i almost traded it in to get additional funds towards MGS4 but i decided i might want to play it again..........one day.
I played San Andreas for years too. GTA4's way too slow, I can barely get into it half the time, and where are all the good cheats.
i dont see mgs4 on the list..sorry my gorilla friend..oohh oohh aahh aahh..
It was a nice attemps but its like comparing dogs with telephones...
But who cares?!... Any way I just want to know, am I the only one who thinks Zeld:A Link to the Past is better the Ocarina of time?
Agreed, is so far beyond what other games have been it's ridiculous, MGS4 is definitely the best game of all time by far.
Finally someone explains GTAIV for the way it is. It's a great game but it is boring half the time. Me personally I like GTA3, it's my fave. I remember when it first came out I would go over to my neighbor's house just to watch him play it because mi madre wouldn't let me buy it. A little early to say MGS4 is the best game of all time. Definatly the best game I have not yet finished except for FFVII. Why is that not on the list. Mario is not even that good. It's just some fat plumber that can jump high and kick flowers in the face. It's like what Scootie said about GTAIV, good game but not great.
If FFVI or Mario World (first game i played) is not on this list then its fake i like gamedaily they are anti-sony website. but if they diss any nintendo game. Screw them gaylords
eh, it's an okay list I guess. I mean this is another persons opinion so...
Zelda: OOT is probably one of if not the greatest game ever. The level design was great as well as the quest. The only other Zelda game I enjoyed as much was 'A Link to the Past'. It's also nice to see Gunstar Heroes on the list. It was truly a Genesis classic. I just wish that Teasure made more games these days. There was a rumor circulating a while back that Treasure is working on Radiant Silvergun 3.
A Link to the Past was awesome.
For once, I agree with you! I still play OOT. Sure I can beat the game in like half an hour(just the temples), but the fact that I can still play it and enjoy it all these years is amazing. Normally after I beat a game once I can't play it again. Ocarina and Majoras mask should be in the top two. Wait. OOT was in the #2 slot! :P. I personally did like Majoras Mask more than OOT. It was just.. more to do.
Dude too. I always have fun playing that one again.
"Masato Maegawa, Treasure: When we were originally working on Sin and Punishment [for Virtual Console], there was some discussion utilizing Wii-like controls, and I think now that we’re working more with the Wii, it is something we’d very much like to try." Frankly Sin and Punishment was one of my favorite games during the N64/PS1/Saturn era. a sequel would be amazing. But it probably wouldn't be released outside of Japan. You should play the localization on the VC though its pretty good. Even if its a decade too late.
Gamedaily list sucks most of the time. But wth this many quality Snes games i have to agree. Nintendo make the best games i think.....
*Nintendo used to make the best games of all time.
I agree with some of the games on the list but most of the other games are not worth mentioning. Gamedaily always does these stupid lists every year.
Go to IGN top 100 of all time. It's perfect. :)
1.Metal Gear Solid 4 2. Shenmue 3. Final Fantasy X 4. Twisted Metal 5. Syphon Filter 6. Folklore 7. Uncharted 8. Heavenly Sword 9. Kingdom Hearts II 10. God of War 11. God of War II 12. Hot Shots Golf 13. Gran Turismo 14. Ico 15. Shadow of The Colossus 16. Final Fantasy VII 17. Tekken 5 18 Tekken 2 19. Jet Moto 20. Tobal No.1 21. Soul Blade More to come... $niper
What is that? Your top 21 best videogame experiences when you're on crack? You're slipping big time.
I'm sure those are all great games that Sniper listed, at least to him. There's something to be said about this "Top 10" or "Top 25" or Top Whatever lists. Every one of us on this message board can make a list of what we think the top 25 greatest games ever are, and they would all be different. I will say one thing about the #1 game on the list in the article, Super Mario Bros. 3. I don't recall being happier about getting a video game as I was on that Christmas morning as a kid when I opened up SMB 3. SMB 1 and 3 had an impact on society unlike any other video game. Halo has come close but nothing will ever match SMB 1 and 3.
Isn't this the same site who made a Top 10 list of reasons they are bored sick of GTA4? Now they have it on their Top 25 games of all time? That's the last time I click on any link to Gamedaily.
not a surprise here nintendo been in games for over 25 years
WHAT!?!? NO GOLDEN EYE!?!?!?! can i have a bubble for saying that?? : D the list is garbage though honestly. mario paint is better than golden eye? thats disrespectful. people have bad tastes..
HL1, deus ex, GoldenEye would be on the list simpply for what they did for FPS. mabe halo something or doom too. I like FPS alot so my list might have more FPS on it.
Lets keep in mind people that this is a small group of peoples opinion. Not a good opinion but an opinion. I agree MGS4 is amazing and can very well make that list but I think at least one Metal Gear game could have got on there.
This list is just awful.
Mario Galaxy is better than 64 IMO.
Wheres Halo? Wheres Goldeneye 007? Wheres Perfect Dark 64? Wheres Duke Nukem 3D? Where Metal Gear Solid? Wheres DOOM? I could go on.
Wow, a top 25 list with no Halo? Quite frankly, I'm very impressed. Lack of Goldeneye is disappointing, though. The list is pretty good, and I can identify with most of the games. The ones I cannot identify with, however, I can see how they would be up there. Nice list. In the end, though, it's still "just a list"
I can accept that most people don't share my love of the platformer genre above most others, to the extent that most of my choices would be platformers, 2D and 3D. What I can't accept is that these lists are written by such conceited people that they confidently, declare, as if it is an objective fact, that these ARE the greatest games of all time, as if it is carved in stone like some 10 commandments. They also frequently only pick platformers made by Miyamoto or starring Sonic. Well, they may be good but take a look at some of the reviews for 16 bit platformers- quite a lot frequently got 90%+ reviews and remain as equally playable now. I personally would have picked some games made by Rare, for instance, like Banjo Kazooie and Donkey Kong Country. And at least 1 Monkey Island game would have featured on my list- Curse of Monkey Island was outstanding.
I dont think mgs4 should be up there because metal gear solid actually invented the series and is a much more important piece in gaming.Games that either create genres or blow everything out of the water in a different way are the games that should be up there. Wheres goldeneye(the first real console fps which others are judged on) gran turismo(the one who practically created sim racing) metal gear solid(gave us stealth genre which splinter cell ripped off,plus gave us a game that was near movie in story. Resident evil(created survival horror,no silent hill games or movies woudl have happened) also in the ones he mentioned why didnt he talk about their strengths that changed gaming. without super mario 64 there wouldnt be 3d platforming(no god of war,no gta) or zelda OoT which practically create the free roam environment. I could go on and on about this list
Resident Evil didn't quite create survival horror. Alone in the dark gets the credit for that.
Smash bros brawl common please the guy who made this list put 80% of the list nintendo
worst list EVAR
Glad they didn't mention Halo. It doesn't deserve to be there. MGS maybe(It's not as influential, methnkz, not old enough yet). Goldeneye, Star Fox 64, and any FF game from FFIX and down should be on there. Oh well, decent list. Glad they didn't choose any titles from this gen or last apart from GTAIV.
Metal Gear was around in the 80s on MSX2 and NES.
at least one of the ps1 crash bandicoot games should be on any list of best games ever.
Nintendo has been around for 30 years. Thats why the have so many games up there. Stop whining.
Shakka, in my opinion Crash Team Racing is better than any Mario Kart game so I share your love of the PS1 Crash games.
This is the worst list ever lol. COD4 isnt as good as Socom 2. Wow. GOW is better than GOW2?
Where's Deus Ex? :(
Is there even one on the list besides HL2. HL1 was better.
this guy obviously hasn't played MGS4 yet. He should have waited till he beat it to make the list
when Bloodmask posts a Top 25 games article it gets approved but when I submit a Top 100 games article it fails miserably! >:(
might as well add MGS4 to the list, the list sucks though, missing better games,
True alone in the dark was the "first" just like metal gear solid wasnt the "first"(metal gear was on nes) but these two games graphically made a bigger statement for the psone then the nes and pc/3do respectively. Playstation really let these ideas really flourish
The better version of Metal Gear was on the MSX, the NES version is a poor port.
Mario Paint? Wii Sports? Sonic 2? What a horrible list so far. Those 3 suck ass.
SOnic 2 is an amazing game. You fail.
any list that doesnt include HL2 in the top 5 fails. :P my personal number 1 but over all it was an alright list.
is a masterpiece.
The list is missing Shadow of the Colossus as well. Brilliant game, but enjoyed by very few.
Nothing against Nintendo games which are good but they were definitely biased towards them... so in fairness this was'nt really "the best 25 games of all time" more like ***"the best of Nintendo games of all time" I say.
the AUTHOR'S top 25 of all time, opinion is a meaningful word people, look it up.
Besides RE4 this list was total bs.
but lmao @ Rock Band being on it.
i haven't played metal gear 4 yet, but i will this weekend. anyways,my top 5 1.bioshock 2.half life 2 3.riddick escape from butcher bay 4.metal gear 1 and sons of liberty. 5.call of duty 4
by the look of your list youd proably love that game. Its kinda old now but pretty awsome still.
Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is no doubt the best game ever.
whole list, but was GTA3 up there?, yes i meant three (III) i mean didnt that open up a new way of playing games?
Your kidding right? The bigman is confused at this list.
wat's this?! A top 25 list I actually agree with for the most part?!
then HL 1 should be there at least. And deus ex on my list. Mabe even tretris too. but some of those are stupid. Where is FF 7. Cause if there is a japanesse turn based RPG that I love then it must be one special rpg(not that im special I just hate Jrpgs, like mario rpg, FF8/10). Why so many wii games, they are pretty new to be putting on the greatest games ever list. wii sports is stupid. But everyone has their own list, Id probaly forget some if I made one, but mine wouldnt include any game from this gen. cause its too soon to know how youll look back on it when the new consoles come out. But some from this list may be on mine. They forgot diablo 2 as well.
Sonic 1 - 1st platformer that moved at 200mph Doom - made after Castle Wfstn but legendary Space Invaders - caused massive shortage of 100yen in japan! Halo - Template for most modern fps Sega Rally - best racer ever? Elite - Mind blowing at the time Obviously a nod to other games mentioned^^^^^^^^
