    What a joke list.

    me3 wow solitaire pacman pong etc etc.

    But where the fuck is civilization. Yeah I get strategy games might not appeal to everyone but that series is easily without a doubt the greatest of the genre. Im pretty sure civ IV was the game of the year when it released too.

    Also the original zelda and metroid both sucked. They the sequels that came later in the series were infinitely better. I spent entirely too many hours playing metroid prime and metroid prime 2.

    Two different game styles.
    Also pointless to add any sort of game vs game post.

    Mass Effect 3 being in the list is just ridiculous in my opinion, I wouldn't put any Mass Effect on there personally but #1 would be above #3 in every way (I dont hate ME3 and I enjoy the series but in the grand scheme of gaming it's nowhere near the top 100 let alone top 10).

    her dish is Hunger,
    her knife is Famine,
    her slave is Lazy,
    and Slothful is her woman servant.

    As usual Golden Eye gets mentioned even though Perfect Dark was superior in every single way, a straight upgrade that made Golden Eye look like junk.

    I was never a fan of GoldenEye myself but wasn't there about 4 years between its release and Perfect Dark? Deus Ex was better than them both and is listed far below GoldenEye as well.

    This kind of ranking makes me question their ideals. What constitutes being one of the greatest games of all time? Nostalgia? Impact on gaming as a whole? The list has an abysmal introduction and goes on to list games that haven't been relevant in the past decade or longer. Furthermore, the biggest problem is that there's no relation between the choices. I love top 10's and I am all for going through a list of a top 100, but there is no logical way that Pong and Mass Effect 3 end up on the same list.

    Have fun with that knowledge, Internet and MMO-Champion denizens.

    (Personally love the game, but I know there's still a lot of haters of the game out there)
    Well I love the game too, but the fact that ME3 is alone for the top 20, for games under 12 years old, shows that they're seriously missing some amazing games. Half Life, Deus Ex HR, Dragon Age, the other two Mass Effects, come to mind.

    I don't even like Pokemon and I think it should have been on the list.

    There are soooo many truly great games missing from that list. Why Pong? Why not Computer Space or Tennis for Two from the late 1950's?!?!?


    Their article should have been "Top 100 games that most people will have heard of"

    seems based more on popularity and nostalgia than game quality,
    so naturally the games everyone's heard of are at the top, while the more niche titles linger in obscurity

    Mass Effect is far superior to 2 and 3.
    Angry Birds shouldn't even be on there.
    Everything else seems ok though, I couldnt see myself making a list like that though, too many decisions.

    You'd have to have been born before ~ 1990 to have heard of Orgeon Trail. I'd assume that most of us who grew up playing it though are comfortable with it's place on that list. I spent countless hours playing it.
    Just becuase it was one of the only games around at that time does not make it one of the greatest games of all time.

    Considering my game always ended with snake bites, no, it certainly was not great.

    There are a lot of places where the list from the OP does not match with the list on the site :O or i am missing something.
    Besides that point i really feel some spots are filled in poorly and some games are missing from the list. I guess the list never will be perfect especially with a list as large as 100.
    If it was a top 10/5 list this would be so much easier to do.

    Maybe they should just put ET game in that list. It was soooooooo bad that i quit it in first 3 min of playing. (yes it made a impact as the greatest worst video game ever and also promote a bad quality games in future)

    it seems like they think nostalgia is what makes games great. pac-man is the greatest game of all time? seriously? come on.
