BTW it seems the list was made by someone who has started gaming after 2000.
With Elite in there? :p
Actually seems more like a list from people who have been gaming for the long haul but aren't clouded by nostalgia. Noting that it was a vote by the magazine's readers, not just a few journalists opinions.
Pretty well rounded list, though it's clearly swayed by popularity of systems/titles. Elite's presence is due to it being one of the best games of the 80s. Nintendo's presence not quite as heavy as some on here will expect, because it's a UK magazine and Nintendo have never been as big in Europe as the US and Japan.
Impressive that Chrono Trigger made it, it wasn't released here until the late 2000s as a handheld title and later on iOS/Android.
