The Independent: "How much fun can you have on your sofa? Toby Green slays dragons, braves Liberty City, and develops Wii elbow to find out."
Many games do not deserve to be on this list. Twilight Princess, Halo 3, Wii Sports and especially Fallout 3. How can a game that hasn't yet been released be on a top 50 list? Great games like Morrowind, and Super Mario Galaxy (a game I don't particularly like, but can admit that it's good), in addition to Ocarina of Time and the original Half-Life... wow, this list truly blows.
Wow, why do the most stupid news have to be posted so many times. http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-...
To quote the question from the article, ""How much fun can you have on your sofa?" Now I can not speak for all the games, but you can not deny the stats with regards to Halo 3 and Wii sports. Halo 3 continues to eat up and dominate live along with COD4, and Wii sport has become a party game that continues to push Wii consoles. Those games must have done something right.....therefore, I do not see why you would think that they would not be on the list. But I guess that all gets into what defines "best" for the writers. Anyhoo.........I refuse to click through all the pages for hits, when all the games could have been listed on a single page.
for Call of Duty 4 Modern warfare... so I don't know if I even trust this list... a mistake like that, tells me the person writing this is not a true gamer..
Agreed. I just knew right away they used a image from Call of Duty 5, I just knew also that he wasnt a proper game too if he used a pic of COD5 for COD4.
Worst list ever.
laughable at best...
The list sucks arse
how many of these lists come out a year?top 50,20,10 etc etc...... shouldnt they all be the same games?
Ever heard of an opinion?
There are games in there that are not even out.
I loved your reactions everybody. Greatest game of all time Soul Calibur 1-Dreamcast Come on people state your favorite games
Dumbest List Ever Wii Sports Number 1? Lego Indiana Jones? Singstar II? Halo 3 but not Halo 1? No KOTOR? EPIC fail
LMFAO. TY for saving me from clicking that link.
I didn't get through them all, but i certainly agree that Half life2 and MGS4 deserve to be on there, along with all the other metal gear solid games. Like i said though, i didnt get far into it - but they were all current gen games, right?
Both those games are in the list.
Every opinion is different. But it's good to see that most of these best of lists usually have Halo 3, Mass Effect, and Forza 2. 3 fantastic games! I would of liked to see Dead Rising in that list since that was one of my favorites.
Actually I think Halo 1 is a better choice.When it first came out,its like FPS games were meant to be on consoles as well.Mass Effect is simply a masterpiece so there is no doubt about it
Well Halo 3 does everything that the first Halo does but a lot more. The graphics are superb and definitely a step up from its predecessors. The addition of equipment adds a new dimension in gameplay. Should I go for the power weapons? Or should I go for the equipment? Forge has created tons of new game types like the insanely fun Rocket Race. And my favorite feature, the ability to go back and view film of all my killing sprees in any angle I wish. And yes Mass Effect is truly a masterpiece. I recommend reading the prequel to the video game: Mass Effect - Revelation. It's by the same guy that made the story for the video game. And newly released Mass Effect - Ascension which starts 2 months after the video game and leads to Mass Effect 2. 2 great reads that continue in my opinion the greatest sci fi story ever.
I agree witheverything siad
There should be a new rule four these lists, you can't choose games that are elss than 5 years old. Why isn't even Goldeneye or Perfect Dark in this list?
That list has many great games, but there are hundreds if not thousands of games better than 75% of those titles. GTA Vice City and San Andreas should be on that list before GTA IV. Halo 1 & 2 should be on the list before Halo 3. Command & Conquer 3, but no starcraft? Are they out of their mind? Brain Training? There is no game on any handheld that should be on the best 50 games list.(there are plenty of good games on PSP/NDS but this is retarded) I could go on all day but I dont think I need to convince anybody that this is probably one of the worst list ever compiled.
THAT was supposed to be a list of the 50 best games ever made??? Who are they kidding? Lol, Wii sports... Halo 3...and a ton of other garbage from the xbox360 and the Wii before a masterpiece like Metal gear Solid 4 .. And games like Shadow of the Colossus, Ico, God of War II, Final Fantasy VI, VII, Secret of Mana, or even Super Mario Bros. 3 aren't even mentioned! HAHAHAHA HA HA HA hahahahahahahaha ha ha ha! ... Try harder. ( -_- ) Seriously though, this is exactly why the mainstream media should stay out of topics they don't know sh!t about. You need to have a videogaming culture to be able to come up with lists like that, which the man who wrote that obviously lacks.
I thought it was going to be an all time list, but I think they were trying to go with more current games. Either way, the list is trash. Putting games on it that aren't even out yet is just stupid. Not to mention Persona 3 was much better than several of the games on that list...I guess games on last gen systems don't count.
There are about 30 titles on there, maybe more that suck so much balls, they would never make a top 200 never mind a top 50. Secret Of Mana anyone? FFVII? Super Mario Bros/World? Link To The Past? Quake III Arena? Doom? Anyone? Anyone? FAIL
Project Gotham Racing 4? Soul Calibur IV??? WHAT?
