Great thread! Thoughts: (IMHO)

Kid Icarus Uprising should be top 100
THANK YOU for Age of Empires 2 being top 100, but It should be top 30.
Super Mario Galaxy > Mario 64 by far
SMG 2 > Uncharted 2
Dragon Quest 9 below 7? I don't agree....
Age of Mythology should be a bit higher on the list.
Battle for Middle Earth in top 200.
Include Hyrule Warriors. (or I missed that.)
All Halo's should be about 5 higher than they are.
Both Bayonetta's in top 25. Hands down.

But this is a great list anyway. :)

Around the Network

Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time jumps from 123 to 85
Ratchet and Clank: Tools of Destruction debuts at no less than 161 (EDIT: I missed it on last years list, it was 290.)
Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal jumps from 172 all the way up to96.

And three Sly Cooper games appear on the list (although still outside last years threshold)!

This makes me a happy Teeqoz

Great job, Smeags!

I'm not sure if it was mentioned somewhere, but how does the counting system work?
1 point for every game mentioned or 1 point for #50 and 50 points for #1?

How Pokemon Snap got 257th is beyond me.

Great job on the list can't imagine how much work this took.

Both the positioning of a game in a top 50, as well as how many times a game appears across multiple lists is important to how the game is ranked overall.

1. gets you 1 point. 50. gets you 50 points. If a game doesn't appear in a list it gets 75 points. The less points the better. Tiebreakers go to the game who has more votes.

Seeing your thread brings a tear to my eye. So much effort! Congratulations Smeags.

"I've Underestimated the Horse Power from Mario Kart 8, I'll Never Doubt the WiiU's Engine Again"

Damn I've only played 49 of those...


Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

Nice list. All three Mass Effect games in the Top 100. :)

Sonic CD being below Sonic Heroes though is a bit saddening. Sonic Heroes on the list in general is interesting in itself.

Current gaming platforms - Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Wii U, New 3DS, PC

How original.

Good enough list I guess, though I really have to question how Other M made it in.

SM64 is so average. Played it first in 2010. Nostalgia I guess?

Nostalgia, brand-recognition and the fact that it was one of the first 3D platformers ever, I imagine. Some people are quick to forgive flaws in a game if it was revolutionary, especially so if they played and liked it back then. Same with Goldeneye and FFVII making it into the top 50, I suppose.

I played it when the N64 was still current-gen and I never liked it much. The Banjo games did the 3D platformer genre so much better.

Anyways, it looks like played about 85 of these games and I have a few in my backlog right now that I'll get to later this year. Glad to see that Super Meat Boy and Half-Life are fairly low on the list (so overrated).

Great work Smeags. A very impressive job you've done!

Absolutely delighted about Romance of the Three Kingdoms VIII getting #471, didn't expect it to make the list at all
Halo CE being above Halo 3 looks a little odd.
And I'm glad FF 7,8,9 & 10 were above 12
