Default IGN Top 100

I look forward to IGN's Top 100 lists every couple of years, and to my pleasant surprise the new one just started:

Nothing earth-shattering yet.

Pilotwings is the only one of 100-91 that I've played more than a lit bit. Glad to see it. Underrated game, especially considering the time it came out.

Archon's a decent game-not a top 100 game though

Silent Hill 2 was excellent, one of the best stories I've ever seen

Bionic Commando's a good game, never bought into the hype though

I wish I played Advance Wars more. I don't know where it is though.

Perfect Dark is probably too low.

Space Invaders feels like a token game on the list. "You're an old game that was okay? SUPER!"

Every 2 years. The lists change a decent amount. They explain in the intro that it's 2 more years of new games, plus more perspective on older games, plus some different people ranking them, plus tastes just change.

Past lists are here:

http://top100.ign.com/2003/
http://top100.ign.com/2005/

The 2004 and 2006 URLs have Readers' Choice lists, which are horrendous.

The comments at the bottom of the current list put me on serious tilt. One guy said the top 5 games "in history" are Goldeneye, the Hitman "saga", the Splinter Cell "saga", the Super Mario "saga", and the Tekken "saga".

I still see Ocarina and the original Mario Bros getting 1 and 2.

Quake II is #98?? THIS IS A TRAVISHAMOCKERY!!

I suppose it wouldn't be as high as Quake simply given that it wasn't the first Quake, even though its engine, single-player campaign, and multiplayer were all vastly better than Quake I and vastly better than any other game at the time. Half-Life (built on the Q2 engine) didn't come around for another year.

Plus, Quake II was probably the last disc you could put into a CD player and [censored] rock out to. Awesome soundtrack.

Mafia is a pretty solid choice at #85, forgot how much fun that game was.

These lists suck, IGN needs to remove their collective lips from Nintendo's ballsack.
