Great work as always, mZuzek. I will need to spend some time digesting all this great data.

LoD not being #1 really make me lose faith more and more on all of you every year.

It got really close to the top 100 this year, maybe if you start aiming for that you will find happiness one day. It made it higher than any game with 5 votes on the list, despite it only having 4. That's pretty good if you ask me.

Very solid list overall, though there are a few games hear that I would personally rank a lot higher. If it were up to me Xenoblade Chronicles, Last of Us 2, and Smash Ultimate would all be in the Top 10 and Persona 5 would be my #1. But that's just me.

Well, that's what your list is for I tried using a median-based ranking at one point and Persona 5 was in the top 10 of that one, but ultimately that system had some other flaws I couldn't fix, which is why I went back to the old scoring system.

But about The Last of Us Part 2, I think it did remarkably well given how 2020 games underperformed in general. I suppose many of our users just haven't gotten around to the newer releases yet, definitely get the feeling that it's gonna move higher on the list in later years. And for those who don't like the game, well, it just got another GOTY, sorta.

On a personal level, I was really disappointed with all the people listing Ori and the Blind Forest but not Will of the Wisps. But when I compiled the results and saw that Blind Forest made it into the top 100 (and well into it, too), that just made me really happy. Hopefully we'll get both of them in next year.

I was hoping Ori 2 would rank higher as well. I expect it will do better next year, as more people get around to playing it.

No platform entry for Stadia. It's a bit strange, as you included PCEngine and similar platforms, with only one game. But yeah, not too surprising. In the future maybe it will become interesting to see a streaming section.

I'm glad I could contribute to the inclusion of some more obscure franchises such as Zelda or Mario.

Oh, by the way, I want to appreciate the people who brought some more obscure games to the list, which didn't make my list because 50 is quite limiting. Thank you for listing:

  • One Must Fall: 2097 (made my list 2017)
  • Starlink: Battle for Atlas (although missing my list, it was an enjoyable game)
  • Worms Armageddon (Worms are always fun)
  • Wii Play (I love laser hockey)
  • Darksiders
  • Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker
  • World of Goo
  • ChuChu Rocket! (such an adorable puzzle game)
  • Last Window: The Secret of Cape West
  • Quake
  • Beyond Good & Evil

And some games I haven't played yet, but definitely need to. Thanks for the reminder.

  • Bug Fables: The Everlasting Sapling
  • Turok 2: Seeds of Evil
  • Monster Hunter Stories
  • Hyper Light Drifter
  • Heretic II (I like the first one)
  • Frostpunk
  • Viva Piñata
  • Neverwinter Nights
  • Papers, Please
  • VA-11 HALL-A
  • Return of the Obra Dinn

Once again great work mZuzek!

Signature goes here!

Nice job.

FFVII #1 on PSone with that amazing library, yuck.

Amazing list.

Shoutout to the other guy who loves Paradox games

If only I would have actually played Hades last year, it could have made it a bit higher on the list. Oh well, there's always next year. It makes me sad that Infamous is down to just getting 1 vote now. Actually, reading through this, a lot of my old favorites have started to fall from grace but at least R&C:ACIT made the top 100.

Great job as usual mZuZek!

Too much Zelda in that top 100

Interesting list!
