E4G: With PAX over and new games announced it's time for the DoTa/E4G editors top ten video games of all time.
1. uncharted 2 2. legend of zelda oct 3. mario 3
A good list, Uncharted 2 was indeed a great game. Had all the aspects and a GOTY award :P (If my memory serves correctly)
indeed it did ;)
meh....someone is being a rogue disagree artist again...
I'm very glad to see some PC games on that list. I get tired of seeing the same ol' console-only Top 10 lists (not that consoles are bad).
ima let you finish but bungie had one of the best games of all time. (Halo 3)
Even as a man who loves Halo 3, that game is not anywhere near a top ten games of all time list.
I would have to separate my list according to genre in order to get a good top ten. But, if I had to couple them all together: 1) Uncharted 2 - because it's the pinnacle of entertainment 2) Super Mario Bros. 3 - because I can still pick it up and play it for hours at a time 3) Half Life 2 - because in a world where graphics determine acclaim, HL2 is still a blast But there are tons of other games I love that follow RTS genres, Racing genres, etc. It's not fair to leave some of those out just because they're not the same experience as Uncharted 2.
They should have done separate lists for each editor instead of showing all their picks grouped together with all the #10's, all the #9's, etc. There are probably 30-40 different games in the list and showing each editor's list separately would have been easier to follow.
and also They should have only picked 1 list of 10 games.
Anyone who makes a top ten list is playing with fire, when you make a top 10 best games list then you're gonna get burnt. If you play with fire you will burn, so remember every lesson that you learn.
Uncharted is good.... but not even good enough for its decade,let alone gen,let alone Of ALL time....
Talon needs to expand his tastes.
Do you expect it to be all next gen games? and it is just a personal opinion.
lol no, all the dude seems to play is shooters.
i think most addictive games are somehow best games and for me it was cannon fodder and magic carpet and plants vs zombies
NEWSFLASH: Not everyone likes the same games
That's why I like this list... none of those guys had the same games I would have listed, but it just goes to show how subjective it is. What's great to me may be totally different to someone else. Really enjoyed the read.
For me. Supersprint - arcade 3 steering wheels. Bombjack - arcade. Epic amount of money spent. Too many early computer games to mention.So. HL1,2 Twisted metal destruction derby Gran turismo Resident evil doom's quake3 arena battlefields 1942,vietnam etc Bioshock gears of war 1 gow 1,2,3 Uncharted 1,2 There are tons more, but i loved every one of those games.
Forgot about Supersprint. Possibly the best arcade racer ever. Damn now you reminded me of arcade classics like Super Off Road, Black Tiger, Time Soldiers, etc...
. Does Anyone else even know about SoA or PS Torment?
for me it is something like this: Demon's souls Resi 4 Shadow of Colossus Mgs4 Half Life 1 Okami God of war 2 Zelda: Wind Waker GTA: San Andreas Elder scrolls: Morrovind Quake 1 but there are so many great games ,.. That I could put on the same list,.. at least bottom 3/4 I could rearrange/or change,.. in heartbeat,..
For me: 1: Zelda: OoT 2: MGS 3 3: Starcraft 2 4: GTA 3 5: SOCOM II 6: PSO ep 1&2 (Phantasy Star Online ep 1 and 2) 7: Halo 1 (offline only) / Halo 2 (online only) 8: Elder Scrolls IV 9: JSRF (Jet Set Radio Future) 10: Splinter Cell (the first 3 only) Most of that stuff is accurate, but at the same time, probably would look different if I spent more time on it...
Of all time???? WOW. Almost impossible to figure this out. I been gaming since the Genesis days. Revenge of Shinobi, Splatterhouse, Double Dragon 2, Flashback, Streets of Rage 2, Street Fighter 2 Championship Edition, Quake 2004 PC, Doom 3, Mass Effect series, Halo series, Forza series, Starcraft, Dead Rising, Knights of the Old Republic, etc.... Way to hard to get a top 10.
Atari days here. :) I'd have a much easier time with a top 100 or 1000...... -CadDad
...I don't know where to begin. Anyways, it's all opinions, I guess. To be honest, the best games I've played have been Planescape: Torment, Deus Ex, the first Starcraft, Lunar, Armored Core: Last Raven, FF:CC, and I could keep going but whatever.
No.1 Super Smash Bros. Brawl No.2 Ogre Battle 64: Person of Lordly Caliber No.3 Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World No.4 Starcraft No.5 Tactics Ogre: The Knight of Lodis No.6 Tactics Ogre: Let us Cling Together No.7 Yoshi's Island No.8 The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess No.9 Super Mario Galaxy 2 No.10 Dokapon Kingdom
...Melee was better than Brawl and ToS:DotNW was horrible in comparison to the original ToS.
Melee was great but Brawl is better. Also Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World is my better then the original.
o0o0o Ogre Battle 64, didn't expect to see that, I thought I was the only one who played it.
"Half-Life 2 is only the sequel to one of the most acclaimed and widely recognized PC action games of all time, the episodes are good, but not as good as Half-Life 2 itself." Woah, I beg to differ. Episode 2 was the best single player segment of a FPS I've ever played. I loved that game, and it's such a powerful part of the HL story.
1.GoW3/2/1 equally 2.FF12 3.DMC3 4.MGS4(best as story) 5.GTA San andreas 6.Red dead 7.ff13 8.Need for speed most wanted 9.LBP/Naruto UNS(just versus mode lol) 10.tekken 5
I think MGS4 is my #1.
OK, so they list GTA: Vice City and GTA IV but not the best GTA: San Andreas? Fail list. That's my favorite game.
Agree. For me is San Andreas > Vice City > 3 > 4.
This has to be one of the shittiest lists ever written. Six goddamn pages? Completely terrible writing? Wow. You should be ashamed that you even uploaded this.
agree, terrible writing. however I (mostly) can't fault the lists themselves - those are some of the best experiences gaming has to offer IMO. ex. of bad writing from this article: "A game where a main character can die because of your actions is a commendable game." lolwut?! the main character can 'die' in the VAST majority of videogames! another ex.: "Pokemon is anything but complex." lolwut?! apparently you've never encountered any of the thousands of online guides detailing the incredibly complex hexidecimal math system responsible for the randomly generated individual pokemon stats. ...and of course there are plenty of grammatical errors as well. those are forgivable only to a very limited extent, however.
Dear Gaming Journalists, You are considered by so many of your fans to be incredibly fortunate to have broken into the gaming industry. I imagine most n4g members would like nothing more than to actually get paid to play videogames! Please at least have the common courtesy to present your ideas in a clear, intelligent manner to those who are not as fortunate as yourself. Love, n to the b
Some of my truly all-time favourites were on that list. *cough* KOTOR *cough*
I don't know my top 10 games, but I have 2 that stand out which I have had the most fun with. 1- Deus Ex, what an amazing experience it was playing this game. 2- GTA San Andreas, loved the story and gameplay, had loads of fun with this. Been playing games since the old Sinclair ZX80/ZX81 days. So many to chose from but those 2 I picked really stay with me.

This list doesn't take timeframe enough into account. You have to consider the games by when they were released and judge them accordingly. These dudes are too young I think. My top 10+1 (not in order): -Demon's Souls (Sorry, had to. A BIG reason I love it is that it brings back the feelings of wonder that older adventure games offered, that most modern games just can't seem to...that, and the challenge, and the genius and original way that they incorporated online play) -Zelda: A Link to the Past -Super Mario Bros. -Pac Man -The Secret of Monkey Island -Falcon 3.0 (Was the biggest advancement ever in combat flight sims) -World of Warcraft (this one pains me, but must give it props) -Starcraft -X-Com -Uncharted 2 -Doom
