Forums - Gaming Discussion - Game Informer 300: Readers' Poll 300 Games of All Time

It's ok, would mind knowing the demographics. I know I'm almost 35, but BG 2 at 126? Mass effect 2 at number 4

There's a lot of weird things with this list, but I think one of the weirdest is that Red Dead Redemption is as high as #8 but Red Dead Redemption 2 isn't in the top 300 at all.

The list was published in March 2018.

Ohh, I see. I just assumed it was recent since the thread was. Well, makes sense then I guess, though I think the RDR2 hype might have played heavily in to RDR placing that high...



I am currently sigless.

Ocarina of Time and Final Fantasy VII have once again stood the test of time I see. I doubt those other games at the top would still be in the top 5 of such a list after 21 years, regardless of how good or not they may be.

This list doesnt take into account how good they where when they launched.
By todays standards, Ocarina of Time, isnt that amasing tbh. I think its too high on that list.
I think RDR2 is too high as well, same with skyrim.

How things look 21years from now doesnt matter at all to this placements, on this list.


Top10 is kinda meh.
But they have alot of rpgs in the top100, so Im not mad at this list.

If they're not amazing by today's standard, don't they actually do take into account how good they were on release?

This list isn't any better or worse than what most vgchartz users put as their top 50. It's a respectable list that comes down to personal taste. I mean they could have had some serious bullshit in their top 50 like...

Fortnite
Destiny
Star Wars Battlefront II
League of Legends
Poke'mon Go

Or any other GaaS style, 70's review score nonsense that happens to be popular with kids.

I mean, have you guys seen some of the shitty lists that are made by editorial staff these days? Didn't we just have a thread on TrustedReviews top 25 games of all time, where they put friggin Destiny in the list? Or anytime IGN or PC Gamer put out lists of "The best X games"?

Well atleast this isn't provided with the trusted bias

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Top 10 (50 even), is very subjective and personal tastes so can't really be too harsh on some of the placements. Overall good games in the list.

Even for me my top 10 fav games it be hard for me to rank them anyway. They all had their moments which made it enjoyable for me.



 

 

It would sure be nice if the first post mentioned this list is almost two years old... When I see a thread about content elsewhere, I usually expect it to be very recent, and I don't consider two years old quite recent enough.



Super Mario 64 not # 1? Feh!
