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.

Oof, sorry, I totally missed it. Just give me a sec here... (Edit: fixed!)

And um, if you guys find more mistakes, please point them out!

The decade breakdowns were the most interesting part imo. I think recency bias is usually strong during the first few years following a title release.

Now, does that mean I will not vote for Breath of the Wild has my #1 next year ? Huh .... that might depend on if the sequel releases this year or another one of my anticipated games take the spot.

Btb, Xenoblade 2/Torna in the Top 50 is more than I expected from it :D

One thing is sure however ... you did an AMAZING job compilling all of this and share these results with us ! Thank you for organizing such a cool yearly event ! Something tells me next year might have some major shake up in the ranks ;)

Maybe if I do manage to come up with a new ranking system, don't feel a major shake-up would happen otherwise. If you mean because of BotW 2, well... one, I don't think it's gonna have that big of an impact personally, hopefully I'm wrong in this. Two, I still kinda doubt it'll release this year, again, hopefully I'm wrong. Three, even if it does release this year, it's very likely going to be in November or December, which makes it ineligible for the event. So, there goes.

And there goes my dream ... in the trash ... by a raccoon. 

How ironic.

Joking aside, the deadline for eligieable games didn't come into mind so indeed I'm a bit sad there.

I mean, we've got the whole year ahead of us anywoo, I'm sure Bravely Default II and Monster Hunter Rise will have an impact on my list (or propably) for titles we're aware of yet.

Happy to see Celeste in the Top 100, and Terranigma did good enough I think. I obviously approve of Breath of the Wild at #1 and Ocarina of Time at #2.

Anyway, great job @mZuzek!

Very happy Celeste is staying strong. It's such an amazing game with tons of content.



Signature goes here!

Not many people played dragon quest in the usa, which is a shame. That game should be ahead of botw.



Heh, I looked at the top 30 last year and it's actually pretty similar to the top 30 this year.  Not only are there a lot of Marios and Zeldas in there, but you can really sum up the top 30 of both years with the following description:

Nintendo first party games
Square-Enix games
Sony first party games
Resident Evil 4
Skyrim

It may simply be that our community as a whole prefers first party games.  I mean, the top 3 games on the Genesis are all Sonic games.  Halo 1&2 top the XBox list.  First party games in general tend to get a good budget and don't ship with a bunch of bugs.  On top of that Nintendo has made the most first party games over the years and they tend to put extra attention on the Mario and Zelda games.  Perhaps the rankings are fine how they are?

Having said that, a rule like only 1 game per franchise or 2 games per franchise, or whatever, when making people's lists out could add more variety.  Of course that might make the event a lot less fun for people too.  It might just be better to keep things the way they are, let people have their fun, and just accept that the top of the list is going to have lots of Mario and Zelda games.  (I am just thinking out loud.  I don't really know the answer.)

Anyway, I just want to say I appreciate all of the effort you put into all of this mZuzek.  I personally had a lot of fun this year as I do every year.  Thank you for all of your hard work.



Your hard work on this is always highly appreciated @mZuzek

Very well deserved #1, BotW is such an incredible game, really can't wait for the sequel.
#2 is amazing too, hoping that the 3DS version someday gets ported to the Switch.
Great position for Xenoblade though for me it'a top 5 game.
Love to see Chrono Trigger in the top 10 and NieR Automata in the top 50.
Also, really great to see two Dragon Quest games in the top 100.



Hey, Halo: CE jumped 23 spots! That's really cool.

But Deus Ex fell almost 150...that's humbling. I worry that next year I might be the only person to rank it.
