A comprehensive top 100 video game lists, spanning the days of Intellivision to the Nintendo Wii.
here we go again. let the flaming begin. let me start. Ocarina of Time at #92? Riiiiiiight.
And no Majora's Mask either. And Zelda 2 is ahead of Ocarina of Time.
Majora's mask was def the darkest out of the Zelda's and deserves to be on the list. The top 10 was made up of super nintendo games, which are all really good, FF6 and Chrono Trigger def are awesome, but the list was missing games of today that are really good like Super Mario Galaxy, or Mass effect 2, or God of War...
I always wonder if this guys got stuck in the 90's. I must tell them that Michael Jackson is dead and that nowadays even grandmas play games
Common guys Burger Time was by far a better game it deserved a spot above Ocarina of Time! Wait what???
@danteh there's nothing wrong with being stuck in the 90's. Music was good, cartoons were awesome, Arcades were relevent. The only rivalry was sega & nintendo and it was more of a playful rivalry if anything. It was pure gaming bliss back then. Right now, if something were to happen and I had the option of only owning one console and one game for the rest of my life, i'd pick the snes and super mario world without any hesitation.
These lists are always horrible, but here we go... "Batman on NES, Streets of Rage 2 and Strider, ridiculously overrated game only at 92" Okay, I like where this is going... "Dig-Dug, Burger Time, Ice Climber" Wait...what? "Metal Gear's Trainwreck NES port, Tiger Woods 2004" What is this I don't even
yeah there are a ton of old legacy titles that most people have never even heard of...edging out pretty much any modern game... but the top 10 on this list are all up there for me I guess...can't argue with a link to the past being number 1...its not my number 1, but it was awesome...and i'm glad to see super metroid that high up...as that was pretty much the first game that played like a movie imo...and is one i'll never forget the first time playing...
It's really a stupid list. Ocarina at #92 ftw! Zelda 2 ahead of Ocarina ftw! Ice Climber ahead of Ocarina ftw! StarCraft ahead of Ocarina ftw! WonderBoy in Monster Land ahead of Ocarina ftw! Little Nemo The Dream Master ahead of Ocarina ftw! WWF Raw ahead of Ocarina ftw! Battletoads ahead of Ocarina ftw! Metroid Prime ahead of Ocarina... okayy maybe.. Xenogears ahead of Ocarina ftw! Toe Jam and Earl ahead of Ocarina ftw! Super Mario RPG ahead of Ocarina ftw! GoldenEye 007 ahead of Ocarina... okayy maybe.. but no! No Uncharted 2 ftw! no God of War ftw! no Halo ftw! no Super Mario 64 ftw! no Super Mario Galaxy 1&2 ftw! no Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess ftw! no Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2&3 ftw! no Bioshock ftw! no Call of Duty 4 ftw! no GTA 3 ftw! no SoulCalibur ftw! no Tekken 3 ftw! no Super Mario Bros 3 ftw! no Resident Evil 4 ftw! no Super Smash Bros. Brawl ftw! no Pokemon Red/Blue/Green/Gold/Silver/Cry stal/Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald ftw! no Gears of War ftw! no Batman: Arkham Asylum ftw! ftw!.. ftw! The top 4 are respectable choices though. But the list as a whole.. ftw!
I saw Twilight Princess. But no Majora's Mask is unacceptable. Also, where's Smash Brothers?
ftw = for the win. xD i think you're using it wrong there man.
Yeah I think the term you're looking for is "WTF".
Unless he means f**k the world...?
Never heard of it?
What a dumb comment. Although you can't expect much from someone named after a Pokemon.
Fuck the what?
yea, any list that doesn't have OOT at least in the top 10 is pretty much a failure. Granted, it's all opinion but to not recognize the significance of the game is pretty ignorant. You don't even have to enjoy the game to understand what it did for gaming in general. I think gamers who weren't around or are too young to remember when OOT was first released will never understand the impact that it had on gaming. The transition that Zelda made from 2d to 3d was beyond anyones imagination, not to mention it introduced the gaming world to "Z targeting." It really was a total mindf**k and one of the few times in gaming (i started gaming on an intellivision) that I was in shock at what I was playing. Definitely one of the best games of all time and it's a testament to Nintendo's quality standards and foresight by how well it still holds up.
Yup this list is bullshit.
You know what, sir? That kind of language is unacceptable.
Funny coming from someone with the name "Major Jack Off"
Hey, go get sniped in the face
"sniped" haha. What a fail term.
Nobody can take a joke here. xD
I don't get why they make these lists, and forget that we're not still in the 1990s. Are there are any games on there from the last 10 years besides Super Mario Wii?
8. Super Mario Kart (SNES) ....really? They think the 8th best videogame ever created was, not only Mario Kart, but the SNES version of Mario Kart?
The Gamecube mario kart was the best but the SNES version set the precedent
"but the SNES version of Mario Kart? " Many people believe that game to be the best mario kart game. And i kinda agree. But everybody's opinion certainly is valid. (OOT at #92 i personally would NEVER agree to LOL but it's their opinion) However i also believe someone has to also of been around that era to truly understand why these older games are so good. Even today many hold their worth just as much now as they did then. Can GTA 4 say the same?
Agreed +bubbles Some of the pics on the list i agree with and others i disagree. My list would probably be different, bu then again it isn't me list. If anyone disagrees with someone's list why don't they make a top 100 list of their own? What really pissed me off though were some errors in the Platforms. FFVI was on the SNES!!!! not NES!!!! Get it right FFS... /rage mode off.
everyone knows old-wizard are nintendo fanboys >.>
Ocarina Of Time at the near end instead of number 1? Oh thank you Lord. Praise Jesus! Joking aside Ocarina Of Time is not a bad game but it shouldn't be at number 1 either. Well... At least not in every "Top X Video Games Of All Time" lists. Edit: Really? No Metal Gear Solid but instead the crappy port of Metal Gear for NES? Hahaha one of the worst lists ever. At least put Metal Gear for MSX instead of the NES version.
I actually like this list. For once someone took the time and looked at games throughout history and not just the last 15 years. While I agree that OoT may be a little low it certainly doesn't deserve to be in the top ten. I still think that Link to the Past is the best Zelda and I have no problem with it being No 1. There are some classic games there that I'm sure most of you spent waaaay more time playing than OoT so don't dismiss this list because your favorite game isn't on in the top spot. Everyone one of the games in the top 10 I've spent countless hours playing and when I think back on gaming these are the games I think of.
No Metal Gear Solid? Wait again... No Metal Gear Solid?!
no suikoden, no dragon quest, no breath of fire.... no final fight, no mass effect... this list is not very good...
I only counted a handful of Sega games, and the highest one looked like Sonic 2 at #75. And ahead of Sonic 2 was Zelda 2 on the NES. WHAT?!
Yeah this list should be top 100 NINTENDO games.
Some of these games have no business on the top 100 video games of all time. How is Oregon Trail on the list, when there isn't a single Halo game, no Grand Theft Autos, no God of War, and worst of all, no Shadow of Colossus!!!! I give up on lists.
cos its b o l l o c k s
"How is Oregon Trail on the list" You just got Typhoid!
Or who can forget "You have died of Dysentery"
I agree that this list sucks monkey balls, but Oregon Trail was pretty damn awesome. Not #85 awesome, but maybe like #100 or honorable mention. I remember being in eighth grade history class saying, I can't believe I just got dysentery for the 50th time. But, hey, we got to play a video game in class, bonus.
This list is full of fail. next.
I agree with some of the list, However, The ones I'm not sure about i never played.... Just go to sleep knowing, no one can make you like a game you hate.... A bit like leading a horse to water.......
There's some Sega games at the back end.
No Shadow of the Colossus = EPIC FAILURE.
Game was overrated
Are there ANY XBOX games on this list?
Yeah, I saw KoToR on there.
The Top 10 are perfect. This is a good list.
IMHO, a link to the past is a bad game, and i hate it, if there is a zelda game that deserve 1° place (not that i think it deserves, but in place of aLttp) is minsh cap, it's way better than link to the past. but the game i think should go to the 1° place is actually terranigma, but just because i love that game...
i'm going to be the pariah and say that this is a great list. compared to the truly great games in history, your god of war, halo or gta are shit (comparatively speaking) or at least certainly not top 100 material. this is a good list made by somebody with a sense of gaming history, they didn't just add new games they played last week and consider them the best ever the way most sites do. if we're still talking about halo or gow 10 years from now, then they deserve to be on the list. as of right now they're too new to be considered any more than "good games". [email protected] i noticed that the thing all the games had in common was gameplay gameplay gameplay. these are games that anyone can still pick up and immediately have fun with, now or 10 years from now, you simply can't say that about most modern stuff.
Thank you. This list covers classic video games that stood the test of time. Not the new stuff that probably won't stand the test of time because of how relative to the times the themes of these games are (GTA)
For the most part, I liked the list, but Bomberman 2? Really? Over MGS? Over GT? Over Halo? Over Half Life? No Dragon Quest. No Tekken 3? No Star Ocean? And what about Pong? For classics, how can you ignore that game?
@jdp the problem is that you just fucking live in nostalgia. I've been playing for a long time, and some of those are classics, but the list is still retarded. Yes God of War II can already be crowned as one of the best games ever. The same about some 3D final fantasies, metal gear solid... Don't be so stupid an accept that the games industry has moved on and most of the games of this generation are as good as those.
Yeh tekken 2 or 3 should have been there. They were stand out games that i still play today.
@Danteh sorry man, but ANY of these 100 games are better than god of war 2, they are way more fun, and more criative than triangle, triangle, triangle, triangle, circle, QTE, rinse, repeat until boredon kills you... this games were so fun, that you died repeatedly, and still came back to play... if a game is so fun that dying is offset by it, then it deserves a spot in the list, i couldn't wait to finish GoW2 and start to play the next game on the list, and man, i hated dying while playing that game...
why is "live in nostalgia" a bad thing? explain.
is it necessary to explain it? people who live in nostalgia are the ones who waste hours and hours looking at photos of their best days now that they are old, and in gaming these are people who will just keep playing pac-man over and over instead of trying Uncharted 2 for example. In a nutshell, retarded people
"people who live in nostalgia are the ones who waste hours and hours looking at photos of their best days now that they are old, and in gaming these are people who will just keep playing pac-man over and over instead of trying Uncharted 2 for example. " Excuse me but i play both new and old. Resi 4 is one of my favourite games of all time. But super mario world still trumps it. Nostalgia is a good thing otherwise why even play games if u cant remember the good times. Dont diss it, embrace it. Also why do people still own really old cars? jay leno for example. Tell him to get over "nostalgia" and see what he says.
Uh, yeah.......... comparing old Games to classic cars, not really the same thing. A '70 Boss 429 Mustang, will still get you laid. Playing Super Dodgeball on the NES, leaves you at home jerkin it to pictures of Ms.Pacman.
@Racing Don't be silly. Your comment doesn't even relate to his point or do anything to prove one for yourself. His point was regarding the nostalgia people hold for the old cars, not the increased libido people get as a side-effect. And he's right about that. Just because YOU aren't old enough to have/remember playing the original Zelda when it was first released doesn't mean the same for everyone else. Or the original FF (still would like to see them make a prequel to that based on the Light Warriors talked about in game and their story). I still break out Zelda: OoT, MGS, SMW, etc., because they were amazing games. SMW 3 just might be my favorite of all 12394235093 Mario games released. Truly classic.
okay lets just pick out some old games that are nostalgic for 27 year olds and say we made a top 100 list!! screw that, i'd rather pop in Metal Gear Solid 4 any day of the week over burger time. CRAP!
Dumb list. Ocarina of Time Should be #1. AND NOT 92!
Why do people like this game so much? Just because it's 3d? Do you know how many better Zelda's there are than this game?
Terrible taste in games you have
Talk like Yoda, you do.
"Why do people like this game so much? Just because it's 3d? Do you know how many better Zelda's there are than this game? " Its weird how many believe that 3D games are the only "real" games lol.. so hardcore. Anything else is old and worthless. Apparently
People Speaking yodaneese... Understand I do not....
The greatest game of all time is Metal Gear Solid.
