I remember that thread, and your argument was fundamentally flawed. By your logic, Hour of Victory would be a far better game than Super Mario World. I seriously hope you don't believe that.
I guess the easiest factor to measure games in the greatest of all time charts would be fun factor. SMW is still incredibly fun, was Hour of victory anywhere near as fun as that? If they are tied on fun factor then I guess it goes down to the others like graphics, lasting appeal, etc.
Baked to perfection.
