Experts help sort through the gaming industry's greatest hits. From way back to the Atari 2600 days these are some of the games that have helped shape the video games industry into what it is today.
obviously its ignoring millions of japanese games....
and btw don't try to come up with 10 so-called best games
it is not even possible, if you want to come up with Best games up to date
at least make it a hundred and 10 in each genre....how can u make a decision about top game in one genre better than the other?
Made by a lamorz. Might as well make a blog I can make it better
yeah that top 10 makes me wanna poop bricks
I do see how Halo changed the industry, it showed how one game if marketed correctly aswell as it being extremily fun can rival any form of entertainment, including movies and music.
Sadly this list is way to short for it to completely accurate.
is a very very bad list it's like that person relived the 80's
The original Legend of Zelda was the first of it's kind and in my eyes is still awesome.
And there is no doubt that Super Mario Bros has influenced most platformers there are today. GTA3 is what popularized the the sandbox style gameplay. FF3 is one of the best in the series. Same goes for RE4. Halo 2 also brought online "console" gaming to life. It is still being played by hundreds of thousands of people online today. Same goes for WOW. First of its kind to become massively popular.
Overall a good list in my opinion. These games have influenced countless other titles that have been released years later.
thats the crappiest top 10 in history
QUAKE AND DOOM
DK64 (kinda tough though)
GOD OF WAR (ONE OF THE BIGGEST)
and some more i cant think of
NEITHER Halo nor WoW deserve to be on this list over Metal Gear Solid, Gran Turismo(greatest racing game of all time and in the top 5 selling franchises of all time)It should be Ocarine of time... it is the Zelda that really made the series stand out as zelda games... castlevania series? Halo is too new and so is WOW they don't deserve it over ALOT of games... way to noob it up. Bloodmask your such a tool. I bet you have a Master Cheif poster you wack you little meat off to every night. Seriously the worst top 10 list of all time.
Shadow of the Colossus owns any of these games!
''Halo 2 introduced online multiplayer to consoles''
THIS IS REVOLTING! In two years they'll say Halo 3 introduced map makers to gamers! Seriously, WHAT THE F***!!!!!!
the dreamcast had online multiplayer for a slew of different games. I even played a dreamcast game online against people how the h3ll did Halo get credited, not to mention the shortchanging of every online multiplayer before it.
L0L....ok seriously HALO 2...should never be in any top 10 list EVER...
WOW shouldn't be in ne top list either ...if so then I guess Everquest should be in top 5 then...
NE WAYS THIS LIST IS A WASTE OF TIME...i'll wait for IGN to update there's ..!!
Team fortress Classic (online maddness)
Street Fighter (the original)
Halo (You can't deny it)
GTA 3 (set the bar for last generation)
Pac-Man (probably the first spark)
FF7 (the most epic)
Super Mario (the famous one)
Gran Turismo 1 or 2 (first appearance of simulation)
Gears of War (The bar for Next-Gen)
Zelda Ocarina (Just the Best)
I wanted to add Lair... but.....
Edit: Afford a PS3? I could have.. but then I got the 360 and played Gears of War. the game that set the bar for next-gen... a game the PS3 has yet to beat. Gears of War... Awards and Scores. Your Sony Bias brain can't understand reality of what Gears has done.
so you like Lair?? you just pwned yourself... clown
but you couldn't afford a PS3...too bad..GeOW..LOL...ok now ur getting desperate...umm BTW Street Fighter 2 is still the best
so what did GeOW really do good other than have great graphics at the time..cuz alot of PS3 games has already surpassed it in that department..so Award and Scores make a game great..?? I thought actually playing the game an enjoying it for what it is makes a game great hmm....
so what had Gears done ?? im really curious to know....lemme guess it became the 360's first AAA title..??
actually I did enjoy Lair for what it is the controls isn't as bad as some reviewers would have you believe..I don't buy games based on other people opinions srry..and it's graphically way better than Gears BTW....have you played Lair to know it's not a good game..??
No one is trying to beat GoW, it didn't set the bar for anything except graphics when it was released.
Gameplay wise it wasn't next-gen.
Assassins Creed will probably be the one setting the bar in this generation.
yes, I can deny Halo. And GeoW? No. Not in the top 10 best games ever.
damn mgs nowere to be seen
yeah, its a shame without mgs the stealth genre probably wouldnt have been created
Halo set the bar for marketing in game industry! The most overrated game of all time.
NO game will ever exceed what Halo did.
metal gear needs to be on every list like this. obviously.
i agree with u 256,675,334,445,342,453,% of the way
no Sony IPs?
Well it's this person's list
makes me want to throw up after looking at that list
But lacking. Namely:
Age of Empires
And quite a few more, though top ten lists are quite hard to put together.
Also, why are Mario and Zelda always one or two? Of course they're great, but maybe the lists could be a little more... recent?
They are ALL horrible. This one is no exception. Goldeneye should DEFINATELY be on there as it revolutionized the FPS. FFVII should be on there because overall it was a fantastic game, and if you look at the numbers... well, it should be on there based on every factor. Also where is Chrono Trigger, Mario 64, Everquest (Though I never played it, i'm not ignorant to the fact it was one of the most popular and revolutionary MMO's to date)!?
This list is absolute garbage, I really can't see how GTA3 and FFIII are on there.
I've always prefered Wolfenstein. Plus, Realms of The Haunting is a million times better
MGS is the gratest game EVER...
The funny thing is, who made this list just want to Add xbox in the list by bringing popular game but not what we can say "LEGEND".
Many games on PS1,PS2 were legend games. How Many origin games we saw on SONY???!
