Aww. My vote for my favourite game of all time gets completely washed away, with (by the looks of it) no-one else even considering it. Le sigh.

Oh well! :P

Enjoyable to read list, nonetheless.

Yeah... you were the one and only vote for Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon. Sorry.

Wtf! I would've voted for it, Kresnik

and people say this site is only playstation fans xD

good job smeags

It's been established last year that a lot of Playstation fans are too lazy to compile a list.

Indeed. I didn't bother because it would be too much work. Imagine the work Smeags had to do though!

Top 5 consoles locked by Nintendo.



Very good games on the list, but also some serious games that are missing and some are criminally too low. PC is especially under-represented, not that it's surprising given that this website is pretty damn console focused and has always been that way.

Is Ocarina really that good or is it one of those snowball phenomenons where it gets mentioned a lot as the best game of all time and then everyone lets that influence their own decision, which leads to more people mentioning it and after a few years it's just set in stone? Sort of like Shawshank Redemption on IMDB I guess.

It seems like that. But a ton of people really, truthfully seem to like OoT.

Yea i'll try to play some Zelda games this year. OoT being one of them since it is being recommend by so many. I am sure nostalgia factors into lot of older games being higher up. Why did you not make a list Mr. NinPie?

I'm pretty sure Smeagsy was making this whole thread when I was still not very active. If I was active then I might've been able to scrape a list of 50 games together, *laughs.*

Gotcha



Thanks for the work, though this is a bloody awful list with some inarguable crap listed.

PC was the big winner compared to last year, so you guys are getting there.
