Starcraft should be top 10, it revolutionized the RTS genre. Doom/Goldeneye should be top 10, because they both revolutionized the FPS genre. I'm fine with WoW being in top 10, because it revolutionized MMO's. I'm fine with any and all Zelda games in the top 10, because all the Zelda games from the 90s are great. Also fine with Mario being in the top 10 because it's one of the reasons gaming blew up. Bioshock and Portal should not be in the top 10, they're both good games, but not the best games ever.
I'd probably argue that Ocarina of Time is probably the best game of all time, for a multitude of reasons, but it just did so much for gaming and it did a lot of things for the first time (assigning items to buttons, etc.)

Article lost all credibility when it didn't include at least either Half Life, Battlefield 2, Final Fantasy VIII, Worms Armageddon, Mass Effect, Tiberian Sun, Rainbow Six, Civilization, Starcraft 1, Metal Gear: Solid, Tribes or Warcraft 3 in the top 10.
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.
Articles like these are all about subjectivity, but in case of big name websites, they're about who pays the most $$$ for publicity for their games, see presidential elections and lobying for the skeptics around here.

Proof that Addictive does not equal fun.
Those who still have not caught, logging onto a game to grind reputation for a .01% chance to gain a 1% increase in your dps only to get yelled at by fourth grader over vent is not everyone's cup of tea even IF you are addicted to it.
If it wasn't for the players, Wow might have reached 9.
I'm offended that Final Fantasy 7 or Dragonball Budokai 3 wasn't on the list. Who doesn't love blowing up the world with a single attack.
I just read through the list in its entirety. There are a lot of good choices there, but they're in the wrong order. There are also a lot of games missing; games that have changed the way we play and the things we demand from developers. The list is pretty heavy when it comes to modern gimmicky titles with no real substance aside from beautiful graphics.

its daaaamn hard to compare soo many games, that go in so many different directions... you cant compare shooter and RPG, both deliver a whole different experience...
thats why such a list isnt really saying anything...
+ its just personal opinion, not global survey...
Great to see two Zelda games in top 10 but Counter-Strike: Source at rank 30 whilst the original Counter-Strike game is not even on the list. Pssh such a shitty list.
1. Half Life
2. Half Life 2
3. Half Life 2 Ep 1
4. Half Life 2 Ep 2
6. Battlefield 3
7. Warcraft 3
8. Zelda: A Link to the Past
9. Battlefield 2
10. World of Warcraft

Retarded list... Rogue Squadron 2 is in, but X-Wing is out? TIE Fighter is out? No mention of Elite (or for that matter any pre-90s games). No Doom either. Throw it in the bin.
It's opinion based, calm down. You might think differently but so does the author, everyone is entitled to an opinion.
My list would be:
1. Counter Strike
Nothing else comes close for me, and WoW would take over CS if it was constantly good. Pre orange engine CSS vs Pre Cata WoW, now that's a contest. Nothing will ever beat the top 2 for me, not even close.

no SC, no HoMM III, no Diablo 2? At least one of them should have made it to the list
