This website's bias towards Nintendo shows up very well here.

They are simply the vast majority here, Nintendo fans, as we all know, so it's bound to be dominated by Nintendo games

Yet people categorically deny it. It really makes me laugh.





Let's keep up with the analysis: (c'mon guys, let's spark some discussion here!)

 

· It's interesting to see the original Metal Gear Solid on the spot 22, whereas Metal Gear Solid 3 is at 33. Now, I know everyone already knows I value MGS2 over all Metal Gear games, but I really can't understand why people would rate MGS3 less than MGS1, except for nostalgia. I am NOT implying MGS1 isn't anything short of a masterpiece, but it really is a game that has aged terribly. Long, unnecesary codec sequences, shorter than every other entry (which is not a bad thing in itself, just a FYI), and featuring the biggest amount of backtracking in the whole series (Sniper Wolf 1st -> going back for Sniper Rifle -> Sniper Wolf 2nd -> Going back to torture chamber which is the SAME PLACE AS THE SNIPER RIFLE -> Climbing tower -> Going down the tower -> Climbing tower again -> Going down the tower AGAIN -> Sniper Wolf 3rd, and let's just not talk about the PAL Key). You get my point. The game would be even shorter if we cut this unnecesary artificial lenght extention. Metal Gear Solid 3 on the other hand is superior to MGS1 in every single sense minus story (which I honestly prefer MGS1's) and some other minor aspects.

 

· Fire Emblem Awakening is a great game, but Blazing Sword (fanmade name for the first localized Fire Emblem for the GBA) is still the best Fire Emblem to date. Three campaigns, entertaning difficulty spikes and tons of secrets to discover, not to mention the best cast in the whole series (which unfortunately has never been represented in Smash except for some sidekicks and trophies).

 

· Bioshock and Shadow of the Colossus doesn't deserve to  be in the Top 50, in my honest opinion. There are other games which should take their spot, like ICO or even Bioshock: Infinite.

 

· Chrono Trigger above all Final Fantasies is an interesting thing to see...and something I find hard time disagreeing with. Chrono Trigger is a timeless masterpiece and deserves all recognition it can get.

 

· Super Mario Galaxy at the fourth spot? EWWWWWWWWWWWWWW.

 

· No Resident Evil 5 in the whole list? For real, VGChartz? The best Resident Evil doesn't make the cut this year? Yet there's Resident Evil 4 in the sixth spot?

 

· Uncharted 1 > Uncharted 3. Their places should be switched.

 

· Dark Souls being in a better place than Demon's Souls is acceptable, though both games deserve better spots than the ones they're in. On a side note, damn, I thought Bloodborne would fare better.

 

· No Dragon's Dogma in the list pains me. That game could very well enter my Top Ten even considering all its flaws. Still, not being in the list is saddening.

 

· Seriously, that Top One game...argh. Will it never be kicked out of its throne?



Nice to see #1 remains true.

Twin Snakes has aged better than vanilla MGS2 and 3. If you take Substance and Subsistance into consideration then i guess they are about equal. This is based on my memory of them as i have not played them recently and don't intend to.

Dunno much about FE series. Awakening was my first. So can't comment. Smash ahh yea that game worse than Mario Kart.

Both were pretty revolutionary. It terms of how they make you feel as a player. Struggled to finish Ico. Terrible puzzles and bad pacing. Game had a lot of heart though. 

· Chrono Trigger above all Final Fantasies is an interesting thing to see...and something I find hard time disagreeing with. Chrono Trigger is a timeless masterpiece and deserves all recognition it can get. 

Never played these Chrono Fantasies. 

 

· Super Mario Galaxy at the fourth spot? EWWWWWWWWWWWWWW.

Game is so revered on the interwebs that people find faulty logic reasons to play down its Wii U sequel. Saying that 3D world is not 3D, despite it saying right in the title. 

· No Resident Evil 5 in the whole list? For real, VGChartz? The best Resident Evil doesn't make the cut this year? Yet there's Resident Evil 4 in the sixth spot?

Maybe. Game's quality varies if you are playing with AI. 

· Uncharted 1 > Uncharted 3. Their places should be switched.

No way. The first game hasn't aged well despite the improvements made in Drake Collection. Other than it having the freshness of new IP. Not sure it excels in anything compared to Uncharted 3. 

· Dark Souls being in a better place than Demon's Souls is acceptable, though both games deserve better spots than the ones they're in. On a side note, damn, I thought Bloodborne would fare better.

Pass

· No Dragon's Dogma in the list pains me. That game could very well enter my Top Ten even considering all its flaws. Still, not being in the list is saddening.

Did they patch in fast travel in that expansion update thing?

· Seriously, that Top One game...argh. Will it never be kicked out of its throne?

Next year, Fluster Cluck 2 with dethrone it. 

Cheers.

Love the lists and am happy that the last of us is not the winner



REQUIESCAT IN PACE

I Hate REMASTERS

I Hate PLAYSTATION PLUS

You know I just looked at the top 50 and I actually like it. Not a bad list at all.



Great list! Thank you for all the hard work Smeags.
As as aside, I'm glad you didn't use pictures for every game this time. Loading up last years results thread (I believe) took an astronomical amount of time for my poor PC lol



#1 Amb-ass-ador

Half-Life 2... Only at 48... So underrated on this list.



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

I'm always amazed by the staggering amount of work you put into this thread every year! Great work Smeags!



Signature goes here!
