Let me preface my opinions by saying that I'm only 19 and have only been playing video games for 9-10 years, so I don't have as much of a perspective on the history of video games as some others do. However, I feel that *for their time* FF7 and Goldeneye could be considered the best in their genres when they were released. Obviously Halo series, as well as many others have passsed Goldeneye, but that doesn't change how great it was when it was first released.

Day of the Tentacle is a very fun game, but I didn't know it was actually considered good. Anyone else ever play it?

I don't think I could put FF7 much higher because FF3 is much better. Should probably get around to beating chrono trigger one of these days, I keep hearing good things.

Exactly, in 1997 EGM released it's top 100 games of all time. Goldeneye was 25 while FFVII was 21. It is very easy to look back at certain games and see what has been improved on them over the years, but for the time these were two games that really impacted future games. I will probably never play a game as much as I played Goldeneye for as long as I live.

Happy to see Secret of Mana on the list

Surprised to see Link's Awakening. Good game though.

Star Fox is a great game, but SF64 better be on the list then.

FF7 makes the list at 76, although it would hit #1 in most overrated RPGs. Take out the FMVs and it's average. The game pales to FF6,C Trigger, Secret of Mana,FFT, and Suikoden 2

Goldeneye, the game I played to death 7th-8th grade. Classic

RE1 makes the list, it was a good game for it's time and did start the RE franchise, and inspired Silent Hill and Fatal Frame (among others)

Tecmo Bowl? No TSB? Outrageous.

MGS2 is kind of high on the list. The plot was awful.

Mega Man 2! W00T

Wolfenstein, great game but liked Doom more.

Doom should be top 10, maybe top 20.

Prince of Persia is a good pick, that game was awesome. The plot was really engaging too, by the end of the game it was like a book I couldn't put down.

For the FF games I have played I would go 6>>>7>9>10>>>>>8. I always felt 9 was very underrated.

9 was terrible, if we're just going from 6 on it's (imo, which is weird) 6 >> 10 >>>> 8 > 7 >>>>>>>>>>> 9

I ranked the ones I've played. I've also played some gameboy ones I think but I dunno how those relate. 8 is awful and 10 is meh. I mean, I don't want to spend all [censored] game tediously upgrading. Not sure who thought up that idea. Plus the story was very meh and I don't think it even really made sense. I basically beat the game by skipping fights and then charging up whatever the limit break things are and killing bosses with them. Plus you couldn't fly around the world map. I change my mind and rank 10 the worst and easily most overrated.

Out of the FF that i remember well i would go

Jap 6/US 3>>>10>>>7>4>5>>>>8>9

Of course it is quite subjective and a lot of my friends really like 9 for some reason (personally i dont). I also havent rated any games post 10.

umm I guess you mean actually flying right? B/c you could unlock the airship and go to places by selecting them or picking the right coordinates (for the secret places).

Story made a lot of sense not sure what your problem is with it.
