    Not sure about about why Portal is number 1. Good game, innovative, but Half Life 2 is far superior in every way. Also, Wind Waker above Link to the Past and Ocarina of Time? Honestly Bioshock and Mass Effect 2 should probably be higher, as well as something like Doom or Goldeneye 007, since FPS games are the biggest genre and they made it what it is. But, I'm not sure if innovation and legacy are put as high in their minds as in mine.

    However, I agree World of Warcraft should be up there as it is an incredible feat of technology, innovation, and video gaming. When it came out it was absolutely mystifying and it is the only game I have ever played year-round for coming up on a Decade. It is easily deserving to be in the top 10 with some of the greats.

    I wouldn't call WoW one of the best games in terms of sheer gameplay of all time, very influential, yeah, hugely brought MMOs to the forefront, definitely. Not the greatest game ever.

    Though eh, subjective, most of the games on that list I've played and liked, but really, it isn't my list.

    That list was invalid as soon as it said Burnout Paradise instead of Burnout Revenge

    So the makers of Portal made a list, they put WoW on there to have some credibility. I wonder what their criteria was? WoW I can see being in the top 10, but the rest of the do not belong there IMO. Civilization, Sim City, Duke Nukem, Doom, any GTA, these would be much more believable. Everquest I & II Diablo I & II, Morrowind, Neverwinter Nights? Baldor's Gate, Krondor? Any of these beats Prtal hands down.

    OK.
    Portal, Bioshock, WoW. But what are all the others?

    Secret of mana @ 83? Never expected that. What about Lufia 2: Rise of the Sinistrals or Seiken Densetsu 3. These deserve a spot in the top 100 at least.

    WoW in #10? Why not Counter Strike? It had millions of players with not even a 1/1000th of the content WoW has overall. WoW simply expanded on Warcraft 1, 2 and 3, there's was nothing original about it. Aspects of Warcraft such as aerial, mounted, large scale and naval combat are still not even present in WoW.
    In fact, the list is irrelevant as it states "best all-time games"..

    In fact, everything we play nowadays was mostly done back in the 80s with the 8-bit machines (ie. spectrum/c64) and the 16-bit machines (ie Amiga/Atari) plus any consoles around at the time, and also the arcade machines. Tbh, Space Invaders, Pacman, Defender and even Pong would make an "all time top10 best game" list.

    I really do call in account the credibility of some game reviewers when they make these lists. It can't be a top anything if it doesn't include "Another World" (or "Out of This World" if you are from the US), fully expected this to be in the top 10. That game basically gave us the RPG genre as it stands. Truly spectacular in every way.

    (oh right i forgot my disclaimer...*ahem* IMO)

    I don't follow lists of a bunch of people who I never met. I have my own opinions of what I think are great games and play what I enjoy.

    It's supposed to be interesting for discussion. Remember those? Discussions?

    I have an opinion and I'm a popular person, please discuss that I think the My Little Pony app game is the best game ever.

    There's much better things to have a discussion about. I believe we got a thread with top games ever somewhere, personal opinion.
    Belief can become reality!

    Um.. you're definitely in a discussion thread about the article posted in the original post. Just to clarify a little more; it's a thread in a discussion forum about a particular topic that was made abundantly clear. With these factors in mind, one may think there's a particular topic to be discussed, here. Just a hunch.

    I have no idea what you're going on about.

    The only games I played on the top 10 is super metroid and WoW. Why would two dorky shooter games make it on the top 10? Super Mario bros 3 instead of the original? There wouldn't be a 3 if the original wasn't so good.

    Portal is a great game I really did enjoy it but it is no near the greatest game of all time.

    There wouldn't be a lot of games if not for other games >_>

    Also, you can't even remotely deny the impact wow has had on the gaming industry. From pop culture, to engaging dozens of millions of players at one point or another, to running 8 years plus. You could try to put EQ up there, but to most people, EQ means nothing. It was just an unfortunate victim of doing something earlier than a competitor, but being out marketed/outplayed. I would put UO higher on my list than WoW, but that's because I'm a biased fanboy :P
