the more i read all these posts, the more i think how ridiculous these kinds of best-game-ever lists are. it's so insanely difficult to include every gem of the gaming industry ever made in a compact list of 100 titles. there are just too many omissions.

though it is fun to hypothesize about it. i guess.

Definitely civ2, definitely tetris (maybe number one even).

I would expect a console in there, like donkey kong if it isn't already (though tetris may fit this bill). Probably an early computer game like wizardry or ultima 3. Oh, or Zork, that one is kind of huge.


Diablo 2 is pretty definite too.

The making of the lists isn't ridiculous - but any argument over them is definitely pointless... No one's ever going to be satisfied - I'm amazed that Speedball isn't on the list yet for instance - but they do offer a nice trip down memory lane for those who've spent far too much time playing video games.

Ugh, I really hoped that Pokemon Blue/Red would place better than 37, might be the greatest Gameboy game ever.

Pokemon RBY is OK, but that statement is lol-worthy.

30-21 is a bit odd, by their criteria SFII should be nowhere near that low, and they're using up too many of their "cult PC games that were great but nobody bought" selections here. Also nobody's going to remember KotoR in three years' time...

Please explain how Pokemon is not one of the top 3 Game Boy games of all time...

KOTOR is a bit high on the list but you're exaggeration is so much more lol-worthy.

you have basically every other lucasarts adventure title in there yet no monkey island so i'm hoping it's in the top 10. same for quake. hl2 is a lock, i imagine.

Is RE4 really #10 material? I just played it on Wii and it was fun and engaging but by no means the greatest console experience I've had in awhile.

HL2: obviously overrated at #6.

No Elder Scrolls: diagf IGN plz.

Quake II was early in the list, right? And Quake didn't show up at all? Hrm, if they're only gonna use one game from the series then QII could have been higher considering it took the Halo of multiplayer games in the 90's and made it even more addicting.

Quake's multiplayer was fun but running through different flavors of slimy brown castles got old in the single player. I think QII's improvements to the single player game made it a lot better.

I can't believe no Mortal Kombat made the list.

eh so I was 9/10 on my guesses. I didnt think they would put FF3 top 10, though I am extremely glad they did since it is probably my favorite game of all time.

Obvious top ten but every game works. Sad Ocarina doesn't get number one because its my favorite game but its tough to make arguments with any of the top 5.
