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.
PC was the big winner compared to last year, so you guys are getting there.
It's very true. Belive it or not, western games gained a lot more ground this year. It seems to me that JRPG and PlayStation fan participation stayed stagnant from last year, while every other fanbase increased. To see Halo 3 in the top 50 (on a site [in]famous for it's lack of Xbox fans), along with more Western games such as Assassin's Creed II (This one came out of nowhere) and Bioshock (really improved from last year) is proof that the larger voting population helped out (we had 46 participants last year, 71 this year). I hope this trend continues. As much as I love Japanese-developed games, there's some amazing Western-developed games that deserve our love.
