100 Games You Have to Play

Just over 2000 South African Gamers broadcasted their opinion on which 100 games are worth playing!

The feedback was phenominal during a month long nomination process, members of various groups and pages on Facebook shared their opinion and nominated their favourite 100 games. (3DS, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Culture, Diablo 2, Gears of War 3, Mass Effect 2, PC, Pokemon, Portal 2, PS2, PS3, Starcraft II, Wii, Xbox 360)

and the call of duty series at #3? i should have stopped reading right there.

If it would have been the CoD Series I would have agreed 100%, the first CoD games were f*in BLAST.
But still, even the MW1+2 campaigns are still worth playing. Leave multiplayer aside, and you have 2 really fun, thrilling campaigns.

All in all I would say a nice list, some games that I really should try are mentioned.
The main problem is - of course - the platforms.. some games I will simply NEVER play because I don't, for instance, have a 360 to play Gears of War on.

Portal 2 as No. 1. Interesting choice though.

The PC copy is currently on sale on Steam for $10.19 USD ($11.89 for both Portal 1 & 2). Although I'm pretty sure you could get a new PS3 copy for slightly more as that would be a better valued deal.

Dangerous times for my wallet began today! (Steam holiday sales & deals). I've already purchased 8 games. I couldn't resist..lol...and it's only the first day! Damn you Steam!!! XD

EDIT: Wow nvm listing all of it was a massive wall of text.

Anyway. I have to disagree with some of those games.

Horrible list. No Zelda o Mario games on it and they have CoD on the top 10.
Focus  +   1319d ago
Its people's opinions, not everybody likes what you like. I was suprised to not see any current gen Halo on the list or GT whatsoever but I'm not going to say its a horrible list because of it.
Intentions  +   1319d ago
It isn't even a top 100 list. It is just a list of 100 games that they recommend to play.
Pikajew  +   1318d ago
And they are games every gamer should play

COD4 is the only cod worth playing this gen.

It might get a little heated. Many people will have their own opinions to who should be number 1 or 25 or 8 etc etc.
acemonkey  +   1318d ago
i dont think they put this list as in order lol but great games up there
Hicken  +   1318d ago
The only problem I have with the list is when they separate some series by individual games, but then others are all lumped together.

And yes, leaving certain series out- like Mario, for example- is something people SHOULD be upset with.

I'm pretty sure its not in order

and reading some in random order I found some pretty bad games in the list, not a very good list imho

i was surprised LA noire was there.

i wouldnt really say both mass effects,to me the 1st is the most memorable. I feel that team fortress 2 and counter strike should be on there. Portal is my most favorite game this generation because it was just different. why mw2? it should be BF2

100 Games You Have to Play, not Top 100 games of all time. The list is not ranked.
Hicken  +   1318d ago
And a game in the Mario franchise isn't a must-play? Honestly, the two lists go hand in hand. If they're the Top 100 games and/or franchises, then these are games people SHOULD play.
ITFGaming  +   1318d ago
We didn't choose the games the SA Gaming community did. I will agree, Mario should be there and even the Tomb Raider titles.
ITFGaming  +   1318d ago
Anyway, enjoy the list. Hope it helps in choosing the right games for everyone.

Apparently Nintendo doesn't release consoles in South Africa.
Lord_Sloth  +   1317d ago
List sucks. Dragon Age 2 is a must avoid title if anything and I can live without Call of Duty, thanks.
ITFGaming  +   1317d ago
Is Pokemon not Nintendo? Unless you didnt see it, Nintendo has place on the list.
