Forums - Gaming Discussion - gamrConnect Presents: Their 1130 Greatest Games, as of 2019

Nice list. Thanks mZuzek for the hard work. Disheartening that so many of my games have only one vote: mine. At least my #1 isn't dying alone with only one vote.

But there are funny coincidences: I have Monkey Island on #19, that put it at #621 in the result. But at the same place also turns up Monkey Island 2, a similarly great game. Also onnly one vote, so someone else had it in the same place as I, #19. I don't know who, it doesn't show in the official thread, so it must be in a list sent directly to mZuzek.

Rol is the only one beside me having Pandora's Tower on the list, so treat yourself y'all, it is a great game.

Brave Dungeon got robbed.

Also disappointing to see only 13 Nintendo games in the top 20, because games from Squaresoft/Square-Enix are being given way too much credit. People should really check out other JRPGs, that will make them reconsider how good Square games really are.

Note to myself: Make next year's list have at least 5 Atelier games in the top 10.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Thanks for your work!



Great work as always. It's more or less given that the closer to the top we get the less it matches my personal opinion, but I think there were more games from my top 50 near the top of this list than any other year before as far as I can remember. There were actually 5 games from my list in the top 20, which I don't think has happened before, though only one was in the top 10, but still.

Thanks for all your time and effort!!


Just a shame that there are so few Nintendo games in the top 20 this year.



An embarrasing list to be honest, to many gamers stuck inside the Nintendo bubble. Respect all peoples opinions, but VGChartz in a nutshell.

Nice rant, but you are wrong with your assumption that players are stuck in a Nintendo bubble. The reason Nintendo games end up on top is that they are fewer, but of constant quality. What I mean with fewer: many people here had Final Fantasies on their lists. But there are 15 or so Final Fantasies, which is splitting the votes. Yet there are few Nintendo games all are agreeing are great.

I mean look at the separate lists from the people: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=241290

Can you see so much Nintendo dominance in the single lists? I guess not. Sure, there are a few that have lists consisting mostly of Nintendo games, but at the same time you have others that have only or mostly PS in their platform column. That the end result is different is because everyone mostly agrees on the Nintendo games while from other devs and on other platforms very different games are picked.

Reality has a Nintendo bias and VGC's list reflects that.

Another point of view is the simple question which game publishers could carry a console on their own. With the only reasonable answer being Nintendo - as they are the only company that a large enough number of people would buy a console for - it makes sense that Nintendo occupies so many of the top spots while other game makers are more scattered across the list.

Reality is more people probably have a bias for games like League of Legends, but VGC users only gives it 2 votes. I am quite surprised someone else voted for it.
