They're all wrong.

Good thing "Greatest" is just an opinion.

Tempist3550d ago

Albet a shared opinion.

Note: Only about 3-4 games on the Nintendo platforms are NOT made by Nintendo.

ZX Spectrum - Chaos

Oh and the original Dizzy was the best of the series. Tough and not very forgiving though. Manic Miner was overrated.

Obama3549d ago

Steven I gotta give u bubbles for putting Valkyria chronicles on the list. I agree with you that it is the best game on the ps3 yet.

pippoppow3549d ago

NES-Legend of Zelda, Close 2nd: ultima Exodus
SNES-Out of this World, Close 2nd:Shadowrun
N64-Super Mario 64
Master System-Phantasy Star
Genesis-Phantasy Star 2, Close 2nd: flashback
PS1-FF7, Close 2nd: Resident Evil
PS2-FF10, Close 2nd: ICO
PS3-MGS4, Close 2nd: Valkyria Chronicles & Uncharted
PC-Myth the Fallen Lords Close 2nd: Alone in the Dark

- This list bought back some memories. Just have to state that the 90's, to me was the best decade of gaming, especially for the PC. With the advent of 3D gaming being spearheaded by 3DFX there really were alot of new ideas and a smorgasbord of genres during that time which made it amazing. So many other great PC games like X-Wing, Wing Commander 3, Ultima 7, Full throttle, Mechwarrior 3, X-com etc. Overall, what a decade. Wish they would revive and/or create new genres which is the main thing I find this gen lacks currently and needs.

INehalemEXI3549d ago

Bubbles to callahan09 because hes right Dreamcasts greatest was Shenmue.

callahan093549d ago

I find that somehow I've forgotten about portables & the TG16, so:

TG16: Devil's Crush
TG-CD (TurboDuo): Dracula X: Rondo of Blood
GameBoy: Tetris
GameBoy Color: Metal Gear Solid: Ghost Babel
GameBoy Advance: Metroid Fusion
DS: Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin
GameGear: Sonic the Hedgehog 2
PSP: Jeanne D'arc

rockleex3549d ago

One of the best games ever made. ^_^

I had never played it until it was released on the PSN Store. Its better than 95% of games out right now. >:D

The only bad thing about it was that it ended. :(

I just wish they could remake Symphony like SSF2THDR. Or make a new Castlvania that could stand up to Symphony... next gen style! >:D

callahan093549d ago

If you liked Symphony of the Night and never played the GBA and DS Castlevania games, I would HIGHLY recommend them. They're all great. My favorite one, though, is the second-to-newest one on DS, PORTRAIT OF RUIN. It's awesome in every way.

NathanGra3550d ago

You can disagree with them (and me for that matter) all you want, but this list was very refreshing and very well thought out. The writer(s) did a great job in analyzing their picks. I love that Mario 64 and Goldeneye took the 64, but don't think that San Andreas should have for PS2. FFVII would have my pick for ps hands down. Very fun read.

MassErect23550d ago

That list was great. Super Mario Galaxy is the best game of all those "best games".

Jubo13550d ago

i thought super mario galaxy was a amzing just not the best of the best games. i thing mgs4 wasm just my opinion though. and wth with gta being ps2's top game and okami second? what about mgs3 shadow of the colossus and there are tons more

Marceles3550d ago

Mario Galaxy was good but overrated to me. Mario 64 was a more incredible game when it first came out than Mario Galaxy, even though the level design in Galaxy is epic. I also like the fact that you can't really shortcut your way through a level in Galaxy. I definitely wouldn't put Mario Galaxy over Link to the Past or FF7...there's absolutely no way.
