GamesRadar crowns the kings of 40 consoles, from Atari, NES and Genesis all the way through to 360, PS3 and Wii.
They're all wrong. Good thing "Greatest" is just an opinion.
Albet a shared opinion. Note: Only about 3-4 games on the Nintendo platforms are NOT made by Nintendo.
Whats with you and Nintendo? lol I think this list was an actual good list.yea i wouldnt have had this exact list but it doesnt take away from this list practically being a list of the number 1-2 most popular games on each console.
c64 - Jumpman Atari - kung fu master Nes - Mario 3 Snes - Super Mario World, (2nd was F zero) Master system - Alex kid (2nd was wonderboy in monsterland) Megadrive - Shinobi 3 Ps1 - Abes odyssey: abes exodus (exploding fart bombs!) N64 - mario 64 ps2 - Budokai 3 (dbz) Gamecube - Resident evil 4 (2nd was metroid prime) DS - phantom hourglass xbox - halo 2 ps3 - TBA 360 - TBA wii - TBA
ZX Spectrum - Chaos Oh and the original Dizzy was the best of the series. Tough and not very forgiving though. Manic Miner was overrated.
for me it's valkyria chronicles so far.
Experiment - everyone post their favourite/greatest game on each platform they've owned.
These are my faves: Sega Megadrive - Dynamite Headdy PS1 - MGS PS2 - MGS3 PS3 - MGS4 PC - HL2
PS3 - Uncharted/R&C: Future/Little Big Planet/Warhawk 360 - Crackdown/EDF2017/Dead Rising/Geometry Wars 2/The Maw PSP - Daxter/R&C: Size Matters/GTA: Vice City Stories/Metal Slug Collection/Powerstone Collection/Sega MegaDrive collection DC - Crazy Taxi/MDK2/Powerstone 2 XBOX - Crimson Skies/Halo1/Serious Sam/Armed and Dangerous PS2 - Jak 2/GoW series/Ratchet 2/GTA: San Andreas PC - Serious Sam First Encounter/Doom3/Halflife 1 PS1 - Crash Bandicoot 2/Crash Bandicoot 3/Metal Gear Solid/Medievil MegaDrive - Sonic 2 N64 - Starfox 64/Super Mario 64 SNES - Super Mario Allstars plus World Amiga - Cannon Fodder 1&2/Bubba and Stix/PP Hammer
NES: Super Mario Bros 3 Gameboy Color: Pokemon Gold SNES: Super Mario RPG Genesis: Ristar N64: Ocarina of Time Playstation: Hercules or Mega Man X4 (only had the PS for a short, short time, and I played Hercules when I was young and liked it, but I'd probably think it was a terrible game if I played it today). Xbox: (none) Gamecube: Metroid Prime Wii: Okami or Brawl DS: Pokemon Diamond PC: Morrowind or Half-Life 1
My list: NES - DuckTales SNES - Super Mario World N64 - Goldeneye GameCube - Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes Wii - Super Mario Galaxy GameBoy - Super Mario Land GBA - Pokemon Saphire DS - New Super Mario Bros.

But I'll do it for the major ones: Master System: Phantasy Star Genesis: Gunstar Heroes Sega CD: Sonic CD Saturn: Radiant Silvergun Dreamcast: ShenMue NES: Super Mario Bros.

PS2: final fantasy(X=good, X-2 was MEH, XII i hate with a passion) GOD OF WAR PS3: uncharted, R&C, POP, burnout, HS xbox: DOA, colin mcrae, mortal kombat(not sure which game it was terrible game but the bonus puzzle game was so addicive with my brother AH the good old days!!! damn what was i thinking??) xbox 360: some good games but MASS EFFECT really surprised me really good game and also LOST PLANET also good edit: ahh forgot other great PS1 games (there is way to many) DRIVER the original is still the best one awesome game just got worse as it went on, also soul reaver, cool boarders, speed freaks, parapa the rapper(come u know u like it :) and on XBOX360 also PC JUST CAUSE 2nd game hopefully this year
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.
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.
Bubbles to callahan09 because hes right Dreamcasts greatest was Shenmue.
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
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
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.
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.
That list was great. Super Mario Galaxy is the best game of all those "best games".
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
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.
God of War 1+2, Shadow of the Colossus, and Metal Gear Solid 3, were better games than GTA.
This wasn't that bad of a list, I would definitely put the games swiftshot said in the top 2 for PS2. GamesRadar actually won some points with me for putting Link to the Past as the best SNES game. That's not only my favorite SNES game, but to me it's the best Zelda and definitely one of my favorite games of all time. They could've picked a better game than Wii Sports. Not sure about Rock Band being a top 2 360 game...if that was the case they should've put it on the Wii list, not sure if I agree with Madden 93 but it was a good pick nonetheless, I wouldn't have picked Phantasy Star Online for Dreamcast, I wouldn't pick Locoroco...they must hate God of War because that's a better game on PSP than Locoroco and they didn't put it on the PS2 list either. I would put either Lumines, God of War, or Killzone Liberation as a top PSP game. For Game Gear I would pick Sonic 2 or Streets of Rage 2...anyways, not a bad list at all.
I can only do the consoles I own(ed) or have a good knowledge of. Super Nintendo - Fatal Instinct Playstation - Metal Gear Solid Playstation 2 - 1. SSX Tricky - 2. Star Wars Battlefront II - 3. Killzone Playstation 3 - 1. Uncharted: Drakes Fortune - 2. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots - 3. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Xbox 360 - Gears of war (1 & 2) Wii - Super Smash Brothers Brawl
at such a diverse and impossible list to compile. for some systems they were obviously trying to go outside the 'norm' but whatever, everyone wants a Standout list, but, as stated before, their attempt was noteworthy
now i wouldn't say Greatest games... but my personal favorite would be more like it... apple II : Lode Runner / Karateka (can't decide) Famicom: Contra / Punch Out (again... can't decide) Gameboy: Tetris Genesis: Streets of Rage 2 SNES: Mario Kart / Street Fighter 2 / NBA Jam (i like to see you decide which one was most addicting) *at this point, i told my pops that once he got me a SNES w/ Street Fighter 2, it would be the LAST console i would EVER need.... we all know how that went... Playstation: (early years) Tekken / (middle years) Final Fantasy 7, Metal Gear Solid, & Tenchu/ (later years) Gran Turismo 2....there were way too many classics...how we gonna choose just 1...lets be real.. N64: Goldeneye 007 Gameboy Advanced: i jus played a bunch of remakes soooo... River City Ransome Dreamcast: Virtua Tennis / Skies of Arcadia / Jet Grind Radio PS2: (early years) ICO & MGS2/ (middle years) Socom 2, Zone of Enders 2, Final Fantasy X / (later years) Shadow of Colossus... and the list continues... DS: Professor Layton and the Curious Village PSP: Patapon Xbox 360: Bought it for Gears of War, and then i sold it for PS3... Wii: None.... hahah jk... but if the new Punch Out disappoints i'm givin my wii to my nieces.... PS3: Uncharted, MGS4, LBP, PJ Monters, Socom: Controntation... *and at this point, I'm telling myself that the PS3 is the last console i'll ever need when Killzone 2 comes out... but seriously... who am i kiddin...
Nes:Megaman 2 Snes:Street fighter 2 N64:Goldeneye Gamecube:Metal Gear Solid:TS Wii:Metroid Prime 3 Genesis:Mortal Kombat 1 Saturn:Xmen-Children of the Atom Dreamcast:Virtua Tennis Gamegear:Sonic 2 Ps1:Metal Gear Solid Ps2:Gran Turismo 4 Ps3:Gonna be Gran Turismo 5 Psp:Never played 3DO:Road Rash,Rise of the Robots(only games i owned when i traded it in) Gameboy:Super Mario Land Gameboy advanced:MarioKart Ds:Metroid Prime Hunters(online fps Metroid that needs to be redone on wii) Xbox:Forza Xbox 360:Only game i have played is Halo 3(i played alot of mulitplat on pc sorry xbox) Pc:Half Life 2(although i notice i always played Unreal 99 more)
