Halo eclipses all games in gaming history. Number one francise in the world. Mega ownage indeed official and confirmed world guinness record.

But really everybody knows that anyways. Everyone really agress Halo comes Number 1. Even some PS3 fans already confirmed they agree Halo comes 1st in all things.

Can't wait for Halo Reach. BETA IS SO FUN!!

1. Halo (MS Xbox)
2. Call of Duty (Multiplatform)
3. The Legend of Zelda (Nintendo)
4. Guitar Hero (Multiplatform)
5. Metal Gear (PS?)
6. Super Mario Bros.(Nintendo)
7. World of Warcraft (PC)
8. Gears of War (MS Xbox)
9. Super Smash Bros.(Nintendo)
10. Grand Theft Auto (Multiplatfom)

More than 13,000 readers voted for the list in an online poll hosted on the company's Gamer's Edition website between January and August 2009. The list is featured in the Guinness World Records 2010 Gamer's Edition, a variant of the popular record-keeping reference book dedicated to achievements by video games and their players.

"We decided to take a different approach with this list than we did in the previous edition," says Guinness World Records gaming editor Gaz Deaves. "Instead of asking developers, industry insiders and journalists to rank their favorite titles, we approached a different kind of expert: the players themselves! We are confident that this 'top 50' more accurately reflects the tastes of the average gamer and not just the critics."

OK OK OK YOU dont like Halo but damn just accept that a lot of people around you like it and that HALO IS FUN.

This is a false Bias List regardless of who wrote it, for a more precise List and a fair one go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

feelintheflow2650d ago

and that no academic institution allows it to be used as a source in any research papers right??

@ feelintheflow

Yes, I do realize this, so what your saying is these numbers are all wrong yet this website is right?

so, 13000 people are right yet many more are wrong?
But ok I'll try to reason with this bias here.

another site: http://blogs.techrepublic.c...
oh ok, thats a Blog right?

Looks like Nintendo is king over all.

anyways my point being, Looks like the wiki is for the most part truth if ya compare the numbers here, so It's only fare to assume that the entire Wiki is true.

My point is, 13000 votes does not make this article true.

What a sad and pathetic world we live it, when Halo is voted nnumber one franchise.

It is just a vote ,It is a preference for everyone to pick their best game.

Parapraxis2650d ago

True enough, I'm not really surprised that Halo got the most votes.
It wouldn't have been my vote, but whatever.

I suppose the people who should be most proud of this is Bungie.
User voted or not, it's a pretty cool honour.

halojunkie2650d ago

im not putting this game down, its great but lol? 13000 people? really? like saturday night live....REALLY?

LeonSKennedy4Life2650d ago

You guys realize 4chan is behind this, right? We're also voting Spy Kids the best movie series ever. It's literally a joke. Lol. Morons.

Nobody actually believes Halo is the best. It's alright though. Tribes did it better before Halo was ever even thought of.

Parapraxis2650d ago

This revelation is very un-surprising.
*yawn*
4chan strikes again. Whoopidy doo dah.

LeonSKennedy4Life2650d ago (Edited 2650d ago )

And nothing of value was added...

Hey, Master Chief! Remove helmet or GTFO!!!

Also...Lego: Batman is number 47.

HAHA! That's gorgeous!

Parapraxis2650d ago (Edited 2650d ago )

(I browse 4chan once in a while, but only because I hate the place and need to remind myself how much)
Also
Won't everybody be disappointed when MC finally takes off the helmet and see this...
