I haven't even played Witcher 3 and I agree. Skyrim is a highly overrated mess (okay maybe "mess" is a bit harsh, but still).

Voted Super Metroid just to give it more representation, because I already knew my favorite game on the poll would win anyways.

FF7 > OoT > Super Metroid = TLoU > ALttP >>> Skyrim.

Anyway, it amazes me to see such old games make this list. That's like saying a Ford Model A is a better car than a Bugatti Veyron. Sure, they might have more retro appeal, be a lot of fun and bring back good memories, but technically speaking newer games are better games.

Not really. Cars aren't a form of art, as such they're not judged by those standards. A work of art isn't necessarily made better just because it uses more modern technology - all the technology does is bring in new possibilities that couldn't be explored before. Personally, I'd say Super Metroid is better than just about any other game ever, for several reasons I don't feel like I need to get into, but it was definitely not held back by 1994 technology - if anything, it's impressive that with such outdated technology it still feels like a modern and refined game. That said, it's not my favorite game.

Hey, that's what the community picked. I was surprised that A Link to the Past won the last one.

Surprised??? It's the best game ever made!!!

You are entitled to your opinion.

True. I was only going to include 2, but I have a secret reason for including the 3rd. I will reveal that soon. I'm curious, what would your top 5 favorite games be? Calling the lineup in the poll mediocre is strange, as all of these games were highly rated.

I meant it's mediocre cause it lacks diversity. 

Anyways it'd be 1. Metroid Prime 2. Dark Souls 3. Banjo Kazooie 4. DOOM 5. Halo 3 

lots of options idk, only the first 2 are set, I couldn't say the rest for sure

Hey, I was pretty diverse. I had Xbox, PlayStation, Sega, and even a PC and Atari game. The Vgchartz community chose these. Halo 3 and the original Dark Souls were in there.

Seriously? 3 Zelda games?

Ugh, these are all mediocre choices.

 

 

I'll just guess Super Metroid cause Prime is cool.

That's what you get from this Nintendo-heavy community. I haven't seen this much Nintendo fans on any other website...

I believe you.

The Witcher 3 was in the polls. But it lost. 



This group is sad lol. Not GTA V and 5 Nintendo games. So shocking here lmao

I know it was I just thought VGchartz would have a more diverse gaming taste. But ut seems to me that this list is actually as fanboyish as it can be. On the other hand if anyone ever complaints about a lack of new IP's I can conviently refer to this page and tell them that the majority of VG chartZ only wants Zelda. Purely out of curiosity what was stopping you from including more Zelda's in the first four polls :p.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

Don't forget though that site is very Nintendo/Zelda fan heavy. Not sure why that is.

Yeah, it's vlike every Nintendo fan on earth gravitates here, lol!

I don't even think that's bad necessarily, but 3 fucking Zelda games! And the mediocrity known as Super Mario Galaxy, blegh.

The lack of Dark Souls, Halo, Banjo Kazooie, Doom, and Dorito's Crash Course practically disqualifies this list 

Dude, I think you need to realise that your list is totally niche, not many people regard Doom or banjo or DS as the best games ever I mean c'mon what are you smoking? Just go to Metacritic top rated games to get an idea, you will find alot of Zelda, FF, and GTA I would imagine.

I pretty much agree. His list is pretty niche. I'm not even a Nintendo fan, but him saying blegh to Super Mario Galaxy, which is very liked and highly rated, nearly disqualifies his opinions.

But we polled 40 games which is pretty diverse

Right, which is why I said he shouldn't have included 3 Zelda games ... I mean at least try to add some more 3rd parties, most of thes are Nintendo. 

I added plenty of 3rd parties. I had 2 Call of Duty games, The Witcher, Steet Fighter, Assassin's Creed, Sonic the Hedgehog, Grand Theft Auto, Streets of Rage, Dark Souls, and The Elder Scrolls. Remember, Sega is 3rd party now. 



Non-Nintendo games that could have made the list:

Chrono Trigger
Soul Caliber
Half-Life 1+2
Mass Effect 2
Baldurs Gate 2
Portal 2
StarCraft
Warcraft 3
World of WarCraft
Witcher 3
Bioshock
Resident Evil 4
Metal Gear Solid 3
Final Fantasy 6



lol this thread. that's all i got to say, but hey finally a thread that repects skyrim. all my friends love the bash the hell out of it....which to be fair in some ways they are right...but will compare to morrowind which is my favorite too, but honestly i'm an fps fanboy so the modern animations mean a lot more to me than them.but it's still one of my favorite games of the last ?seven? years...  Hopefully we get more voice actors and less bugs for TESVI. 

Despite being mostly a console player I am still a graphics/art style whore so for that reason I could never put BoTW in this conversation. I find the color pallet too boring.



Considering there's only one game on the list I've invested a significant amount of time in, the choice is easy. I'd rather not have voted, but there was no 'See results' option, so...

In other news, I need to play more games. I need more time.
