not bad. good to see stuff like Silent Hill, Baldur's Gate, SOTC, etc making the list

Only one Nintendo game in the top 10? Super Metroid in 94? The Last of Us in the top spot? This list sucks!

"I've Underestimated the Horse Power from Mario Kart 8, I'll Never Doubt the WiiU's Engine Again"

BTW it seems the list was made by someone who has started gaming after 2000.

Daredevil, I'm on my phone! Your spoiler font has foiled me again!

Where is God of War...?

A lot of great games in that list. And #1? Well fucking deserved.

So it is happening...PS4 preorder.

Greatness Awaits!

Or maybe someone who isn't stuck in the past..

Horrible list. I mean, it does have most of the best games of all time, but they're all thrown down on the bottom half in spite of worse, though "more important" games. They've even ranked games in each franchise wrong. I mean, Twilight Princess above The Wind Waker, A Link to the Past, Majora's Mask and Skyward Sword... seriously? This applies to several franchises as well.

There's too many "classics" that have since been far surpassed, for example: Super Mario Kart and Mario Kart 64 are the only MK games on the list despite being nowhere near the best in their franchise. Ocarina of Time obviously makes it higher than any other Zelda game despite being worse than several of its successors. The only Crash Bandicoot game on the list is the worst out of the original trilogy, and so on.

To round it off, #1 is an absolute joke.
