here we go again. let the flaming begin. let me start. Ocarina of Time at #92? Riiiiiiight.

destructomaximo3025d ago

And no Majora's Mask either. And Zelda 2 is ahead of Ocarina of Time.

Legosz3025d ago

Majora's mask was def the darkest out of the Zelda's and deserves to be on the list. The top 10 was made up of super nintendo games, which are all really good, FF6 and Chrono Trigger def are awesome, but the list was missing games of today that are really good like Super Mario Galaxy, or Mass effect 2, or God of War...

Danteh3025d ago

I always wonder if this guys got stuck in the 90's.

I must tell them that Michael Jackson is dead and that nowadays even grandmas play games

UltraNova3024d ago

Common guys Burger Time was by far a better game it deserved a spot above Ocarina of Time!

Wait what???

hatchimatchi3024d ago


there's nothing wrong with being stuck in the 90's.

Music was good, cartoons were awesome, Arcades were relevent. The only rivalry was sega & nintendo and it was more of a playful rivalry if anything. It was pure gaming bliss back then.

Right now, if something were to happen and I had the option of only owning one console and one game for the rest of my life, i'd pick the snes and super mario world without any hesitation.

TheDeadMetalhead3024d ago (Edited 3024d ago )

These lists are always horrible, but here we go...

"Batman on NES, Streets of Rage 2 and Strider, ridiculously overrated game only at 92"

Okay, I like where this is going...

"Dig-Dug, Burger Time, Ice Climber"


"Metal Gear's Trainwreck NES port, Tiger Woods 2004"

What is this I don't even

Kleptic3024d ago

yeah there are a ton of old legacy titles that most people have never even heard of...edging out pretty much any modern game...

but the top 10 on this list are all up there for me I guess...can't argue with a link to the past being number 1...its not my number 1, but it was awesome...and i'm glad to see super metroid that high that was pretty much the first game that played like a movie imo...and is one i'll never forget the first time playing...

It's really a stupid list. Ocarina at #92 ftw! Zelda 2 ahead of Ocarina ftw! Ice Climber ahead of Ocarina ftw! StarCraft ahead of Ocarina ftw! WonderBoy in Monster Land ahead of Ocarina ftw! Little Nemo The Dream Master ahead of Ocarina ftw! WWF Raw ahead of Ocarina ftw! Battletoads ahead of Ocarina ftw! Metroid Prime ahead of Ocarina... okayy maybe.. Xenogears ahead of Ocarina ftw! Toe Jam and Earl ahead of Ocarina ftw! Super Mario RPG ahead of Ocarina ftw! GoldenEye 007 ahead of Ocarina... okayy maybe.. but no!

No Uncharted 2 ftw! no God of War ftw! no Halo ftw! no Super Mario 64 ftw! no Super Mario Galaxy 1&2 ftw! no Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess ftw! no Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2&3 ftw! no Bioshock ftw! no Call of Duty 4 ftw! no GTA 3 ftw! no SoulCalibur ftw! no Tekken 3 ftw! no Super Mario Bros 3 ftw! no Resident Evil 4 ftw! no Super Smash Bros. Brawl ftw! no Pokemon Red/Blue/Green/Gold/Silver/Cry stal/Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald ftw! no Gears of War ftw! no Batman: Arkham Asylum ftw!

ftw!.. ftw!

The top 4 are respectable choices though.

But the list as a whole.. ftw!

PrimordialSoupBase3025d ago

I saw Twilight Princess. But no Majora's Mask is unacceptable. Also, where's Smash Brothers?

Axecution3025d ago

ftw = for the win.

xD i think you're using it wrong there man.

Mike Jones ST3025d ago

Yeah I think the term you're looking for is "WTF".

Apolloeye3024d ago

Unless he means f**k the world...?

hombrehambre3024d ago

What a dumb comment. Although you can't expect much from someone named after a Pokemon.

hatchimatchi3024d ago

yea, any list that doesn't have OOT at least in the top 10 is pretty much a failure. Granted, it's all opinion but to not recognize the significance of the game is pretty ignorant. You don't even have to enjoy the game to understand what it did for gaming in general.

I think gamers who weren't around or are too young to remember when OOT was first released will never understand the impact that it had on gaming. The transition that Zelda made from 2d to 3d was beyond anyones imagination, not to mention it introduced the gaming world to "Z targeting." It really was a total mindf**k and one of the few times in gaming (i started gaming on an intellivision) that I was in shock at what I was playing. Definitely one of the best games of all time and it's a testament to Nintendo's quality standards and foresight by how well it still holds up.

Joule3025d ago

Yup this list is bullshit.

Bobbykotickrulesz3025d ago

You know what, sir?

That kind of language is unacceptable.

Kriller3025d ago

Funny coming from someone with the name "Major Jack Off"

Bobbykotickrulesz3025d ago

Hey, go get sniped in the face

Palodios3025d ago

I don't get why they make these lists, and forget that we're not still in the 1990s. Are there are any games on there from the last 10 years besides Super Mario Wii?

HolyOrangeCows3025d ago

8. Super Mario Kart (SNES)

....really? They think the 8th best videogame ever created was, not only Mario Kart, but the SNES version of Mario Kart?

Swedenborg3025d ago

The Gamecube mario kart was the best but the SNES version set the precedent

Mini Mario3024d ago (Edited 3024d ago )

"but the SNES version of Mario Kart? "

Many people believe that game to be the best mario kart game. And i kinda agree.

But everybody's opinion certainly is valid. (OOT at #92 i personally would NEVER agree to LOL but it's their opinion)

However i also believe someone has to also of been around that era to truly understand why these older games are so good. Even today many hold their worth just as much now as they did then.

Can GTA 4 say the same?

Theonik3024d ago (Edited 3024d ago )

Some of the pics on the list i agree with and others i disagree. My list would probably be different, bu then again it isn't me list. If anyone disagrees with someone's list why don't they make a top 100 list of their own?

What really pissed me off though were some errors in the Platforms. FFVI was on the SNES!!!! not NES!!!! Get it right FFS... /rage mode off.

Kappa Mikey3024d ago

everyone knows old-wizard are nintendo fanboys >.>

Blacktric3024d ago (Edited 3024d ago )

Ocarina Of Time at the near end instead of number 1? Oh thank you Lord. Praise Jesus! Joking aside Ocarina Of Time is not a bad game but it shouldn't be at number 1 either. Well... At least not in every "Top X Video Games Of All Time" lists.

Edit: Really? No Metal Gear Solid but instead the crappy port of Metal Gear for NES? Hahaha one of the worst lists ever. At least put Metal Gear for MSX instead of the NES version.

khellendros13024d ago

I actually like this list. For once someone took the time and looked at games throughout history and not just the last 15 years. While I agree that OoT may be a little low it certainly doesn't deserve to be in the top ten. I still think that Link to the Past is the best Zelda and I have no problem with it being No 1. There are some classic games there that I'm sure most of you spent waaaay more time playing than OoT so don't dismiss this list because your favorite game isn't on in the top spot. Everyone one of the games in the top 10 I've spent countless hours playing and when I think back on gaming these are the games I think of.

NeutralGamer3024d ago

No Metal Gear Solid?
Wait again... No Metal Gear Solid?!

kesvalk3023d ago

no suikoden, no dragon quest, no breath of fire....
no final fight, no mass effect...

this list is not very good...

Optimus Prime13025d ago

I only counted a handful of Sega games, and the highest one looked like Sonic 2 at #75. And ahead of Sonic 2 was Zelda 2 on the NES. WHAT?!

BaronBullion3025d ago

Yeah this list should be top 100 NINTENDO games.

TheThrills4Life3025d ago

Some of these games have no business on the top 100 video games of all time. How is Oregon Trail on the list, when there isn't a single Halo game, no Grand Theft Autos, no God of War, and worst of all, no Shadow of Colossus!!!! I give up on lists.

waltyftm3025d ago

cos its b o l l o c k s

jakethesnake3025d ago

"How is Oregon Trail on the list"

You just got Typhoid!

Theonik3024d ago

Or who can forget "You have died of Dysentery"

pipster173024d ago

I agree that this list sucks monkey balls, but Oregon Trail was pretty damn awesome. Not #85 awesome, but maybe like #100 or honorable mention. I remember being in eighth grade history class saying, I can't believe I just got dysentery for the 50th time. But, hey, we got to play a video game in class, bonus.

Big City3025d ago

This list is full of fail. next.

Rhythmattic3025d ago (Edited 3025d ago )

I agree with some of the list, However, The ones I'm not sure about i never played....

Just go to sleep knowing, no one can make you like a game you hate....

A bit like leading a horse to water.......

MountainMaverick3025d ago

There's some Sega games at the back end.
