In a recent article in the Independent, a UK daily newspaper, they listed their top 50 video games of all time. Surprisingly, they said Wii sports was the greatest game of all time...
Wii sports the best game of all time? LOL MGS1 takes that title
Metroid Prime and Ocarina of Time would like to have a word with you.
No. It's Haze Seriously though it's all based on your opinion and since I'm an RPG fan I'ld say my favorite games of all time are Fable and FFVII (so these are the best games in the planet imho). But again, that's just my opinion
You guys need help.Soul Calibur 1 on the Dreamcast is teh bestest
@Fox01 No, it's Too Human.
No Solid, it's lair
I've never written an article about nuclear physics, and that because i know nothing about it, this is the same reason that person should not really be writing about video games.
So true! Though, but since you've invented the Delorean Time Machine, you should still be able to write a decent article : ) 1 Wii sports: Likely deserve to be in the top 10 though. It's the game that sold the Wii and it still one of the best Wii game. 2 Braid: A small literally unknown puzzle game being second??? Let me guess, we are lucky this journalist was tired of playing Solitaire on his PC, because this could have been second, but I guess now we know what he is doing with his tremendous spare time. 3 Halo 3: Think the first Halo should be in the top 10. The third one? Probably close be no cigar. 4 Fallout 3: Wow, the game is now even out yet. Best of all time should not include future!!! Dang, Pacman deserve a top spot more than a game that has not been release yet! 5 Rockband: Top 5 material? Not even truly innovative. Yes I would say in fact that this journalist know so little about gaming that quite likely, an article on nuclear physic would likely have been better : )
No....just ..no the Wii is killing video games but they are doing it with a smile and millions are following Its a sad day for people with souls
That's what we call BS. Over the years I think I've probably read at least 1000 comments which claimed that the Wii "will kill," "is killing," or "has killed" video games. Funny thing is that in all that time the video game industry has shown NO SIGNS of just going belly up. I can understand complaints that the Wii's line-up is mostly shovelware; because it is. But looking at games coming out for the PS3 or 360 or PC (ex. Crysis, Bioshock, LittleBigPlanet, Metal Gear Solid 4, Gears of War) it seems to me that in this generation the video game industry, as a whole, is in a time of innovation and prosperity. Now - is the Wii killing Nintendo's credibility? That's a debate for another day.
Wii sports is bs, Chrono Cross is the best IMO but Super Mario Bros 3 is extremely good too. These people are the new generation gamers and I dont like them!
its totally yaris
Wii sports must be the only game he ever played..
wii sports is the best game for people that dont like games but the worst I played ever
On the Wii itself.
Uno? I think it would struggle getting into the top 300 Bomberman Live? Saturn Bomberman had 10 players on multiplayer. Fallout3? Unless the 'Independant' has played through the game already (its not released yet) then they are guessing....... I must have missed the following ; Streetfighter2 Sega Rally Doom Pacman Im sure in actual fact when they do these lists that some random guy in the street is asked to pull 10/20/50/100 bits of paper from a hat and whatever he draws out makes it on the list........
The articles a joke but? right? Must be.
Its real. And from the list I'm guessing the author has a Wii and bought a 360 cause of all the cool Halo 3 music they were playing at Best Buy.
Wii sports is a game that has got countless people into playing games. Personally i wouldnt agree with his OPINION...but its just that, his opinion
Not OPINIONS 4 GAMERS. This is sad when articles like that are being posted here isn't it? Everybody can make their own opinions, but every now and then, the most stupids ones have to be posted here. Sad.
This list is full of fail. Did they only start gaming this gen??
I'm pretty sure that was Halo 1 but since everyone is more familiar with 3 why not list that instead!
NEVER WAS NEVER WILL
COD4 at #18 loses to Braid at #2? I've heard its a good game but I KNOW it cant beat COD4. And how the heck does Super Mario Bros not end up on the list? I think the author just wrote random games down that they hear about and slapped numbers on them.
They obviously are not Sony fans
For this current time frame - Wii Sportst is the "in" thing. 5 Years down the line... ask the question again.
The guardian like all newspapers has no idea when it comes to games. Most of there reviews are done by cookery or news reporters reading the blub off the box.
Pathetic, just pathetic.
Even the SOCOM Beta is better than Wii sports. IMO the best game ever was SOCOM 2 online. My very first console was a very old NES, then I got the SNES, then the N64, then the PS1, then the PS2, then the GC, now the PS3 and I've played every good game on all those consoles, SOCOM 2 beats all of them in fun to me. It's probably because I suck ass at Super Mario Bros. 3...
I can't understand.... Gears of war, MGS, first Sonic, Mario... ma Wii sports?? O_o really, it's a joke ;P
They have Rockband at like #5. I think that we have all just entered gamer hell where everything is upside down. Thank god these people do not dev. Now excuse me I need to go puke.
like when captain price says BUGGERRRRR...
Man if we we saying Wii sports is the greatest of all time we might as well throw PONG as one of the greats! Wow....
It's one of the most innovative games ever. And it appealed to a lot of non-gamers. Probably more so than any other game. Wii Sports will probably be in more homes than any other game in history.
it appeals to woman and closet cases. it appeals to gamers for about 5 minutes when you're drunk at a party.
or Wand of Gamelon should BOTH take that top honor of greatest in the history and future of video gaming
Then I guess by that logic Wii Resort (Wii Sports III) should do at least EQUAL sales when its released. It is a "FREE" tech demo, is all it is. Nothing more. In fact, they will have to bundle Wii Resort with a (free?) controller, just like they did with Wii Play in order to sell.
im sorry but im about to rant, no offense to fallout 3.. at all cuz it looks like a fantatic game it really does and i might buy it but fallout 3 on the list of top games of all time?... WTF, the reason i have a problem with this is IT DID NOT EVEN F*KING COME OUT YET ... seriously I HATE WHEN PPL SAY GAMES ARE "THE BEST OF ALL TIME" OR "AMAZING" when they did not even come out yet, it just pisses me off, i really have a problem with it... and they obviously HAVE NO EVIDENCE TO BACK IT UP .. cuz THEY HAVNT PLAYED IT so if fallout 3 didnt come out yet ... that means .. resistance 2....littlebigplanet, gears of war 2 fable 2.... animal crossing.. the new Wario game etc on the systems should also be on the list of "best games of all time" according to ur stupid damn logic right? UK daily newspaper = FAIL (sorry for ranting people i really am)
Wii sports is a really great game. It made what Wii is today and is still the nintendo wii game that I play the most.
Here is fact for you guys, Everyone has his own "best" game. So why get so upset over this?
Shadow of the Colossus then and only then Turtles in Time on the SNES.
