recency bias is strong in this one. Watch it'll probably win the whole thing lol

It probably will, and it probably will deserve it lol.  Such a good game.

more recency bias

I am Iron Man

I'm sorry...but Last of Us above Halo 3? Damn, that game can barely get more overblown. I wouldn't even say it's that overrated but god, it has to have the most praise for any game ever to have a story that is pretty standard. The execution of the Last of Us is what sold it, it's story is still pretty standard though. It's not bad like Bioshock Infinite, it's a very good game, but i don't think it's close to the best ever. 

Breath of the Wild and The Last of Us should not be taking a majority of this poll

Regarding "recent game" bias, that is a valid concern, but many of these games haven't even been played by recent gamers. Some of it might be because BOTW or TLOU are new, but a lot of it is probably that many newer gamers like myself haven't played Chrono Trigger, Castlevania, Final Fantasy X, or the old classic Goat Simulator. 

Now that's a poll plenty of amazing games, but I have to go with BoTW, simply majestic.

I feel like sharing my top 10 again, hoping others will do the same:

I'll admit, I haven't really "finished" enough games to have a top 10, but what the hell I'll do it anyways! 

1. Metroid Prime

2. Dark Souls 

3. Banjo Kazooie

4. Doom(original)

5. Halo 3 

6. Counter-Strike : Global Offensive

7. Gears of War 3 

8. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

9. Bayonetta 2 

Some of this is jumbled because I haven't played Halo 3 and GOW 3 in sooooooo long that I don't really know where they stack up.

Xenoblade Chronicles should be in a poll. It's much better than any in the polls so far.

Picked Goat Simulator since no Skyward Sword I haven't played any of those games (Well, I did play BotW, but... yeah).

these polls are so terrible. though i guess it is hard to have a poll with only a few games on it. I put Chrono Trigger because that is the only game that even remotely is close to the top for me. Final Fantasy VI is my actual number 1 with Chrono Trigger number 2.
Though I'm only like 5 hours into Zelda so who knows maybe that game will turn out to be as good as everyone says. But obviously people's votes are skewed to what they have been recently playing considering how dominant zelda is in the poll.


...to avoid getting banned for inactivity, I may have to resort to comments that are of a lower overall quality and or beneath my moral standards.
