    Don't know if this has been posted, but I though it was pretty cool. I definitely like alot of the choices esp since they don't limit themselves to past ten years.

    No Samba completely invalidates the list.

    I saw Virtua Fighter 4 and Madden 2004 on there...WTF?

    Super Mario Bros. is number 1? Ugh. I hated that game. At least I didn't see the original Legend of Zelda up there. Now, that game truly sucked.

    I never much like these lists. Usually full of overrated trash I can't stand such as Ocarina of Time, Halo, Final Fantasy and Half Life.

    Glad Super Mario Bros got number 1. May not be my most favorite but it still plays extremely well for it's age and I'd take it over any modern PC game and most console titles.

    FFVII only made 88?! And was beat out by X?!

    Well, I only had to look through 12 games to know I can stop reading! :D 

    Maybe you should actually PLAY all of those games, then you can have an opinion.

    That list is all over the place. I have my favorites that I know not everyone agrees with, but I can also be pretty reasonable, and this list just has little cohesion to it. At some points they seem to put a game high on the list for how groundbreaking it was, yet on the other hand they have Madded 04 as previously stated, which, after 15 or so iterations, is really not so groundbreaking. Oh well, these lists are fun to read but this one kinda just had me shaking my head too much.

    I've owned all those games. In fact I've owned Half Life and OoT TWICE! Bought both seperately when they first came out. Another Half Life came in package with a graphics card, while a second OoT cart came in a bulk lot of 2nd hand N64 carts.

    Only Final Fantasy I enjoyed was VI on the SNES. Had bought a bulk set of 2nd hand VII, VIII and IX from a shop ages ago and thought they were terrible. Especially VII. Got right to near the end where you descend down some mountain or volcano or crater or something (been many years since I played it) and realised I'd wasted my whole weekend on a really really bad game. Only remotely fun bit was the motorcycle chase but that just had me wishing someone would make a good Road Rash update.

    And I was one of those idiots who bought into the hype of the Xbox and purchased one to play the 'best game ever made' Halo. Sold the Xbox a month or so later after finding the game really dull and little else on the machine to interest me.

    So next time don't go assuming I can't back up my opinion.

    Probably because Ms. Pac-Man is infinitely better than Pac-Man.

    Anyways, Fallout's there, Star Control 2 is there (best game ever), Castlevania SOTN is there. Good list to me. Shit, Wing Commander 2 and Tie Fighter made it too. It's a pretty decent list.

    Until they add Voodoo Vince and Ace Combat, I refuse to listen to anything these people say. Harumph! *sticks nose in the air*

    In all seriousness, the list is decent, but some of their choices, and their places on the list simply have me baffled.

    No. I wasn't expecting an ounce of care from you.

    But why did you hate those games?

    TIE Fighter came in at no. 8, thats well deserved imo. Pity neither of the Half life games made the top ten
