    Fuck these lists. The only point is to get their ad revenue up.

    Maybe so. They are still fun to read and argue amongst yourself or others. :)

    • Super Metroid and Chrono Trigger near the bottom of the list, behind Oblivion, Halo 3, Bioshock.
    • Halo beating HL1 and 2.
    • 5 soccer games on the list.
    • Left 4 Dead but no Team Fortress 2.
    • Twilight Princess at 63 but no Windwaker.
    'nuff said.

    I hate people who claim Halo 3 was such a great game. None of the Halos were all that great. If you ask me, it was brilliant marketing by Microsoft to make people think it was. I think the fanboys are just too embarrassed to admit they sucked.

    Well, I wouldn't go that far. Halo is fun, but not better than Half-life fun.

    Yeah, I'm not saying Halo wasn't fun...They just weren't "the best games ever" or anything like that. The whole "Combat Evolved" seems to have given people the idea these games revolutionized the industry. XBL did that for multiplayer...not Halo.

    Ocarina Should be #1, and WoW shouldn't even be top 20 same with cod4.

    Often times with these lists I feel like they have games that very much deserve to be on them, but the position makes no sense.

    Take #1 Super Mario World.
    I won't argue that it deserves to be on a top 100 list. I would argue that it needs to be at least in the top 20. But #1?

    In the end it is all subjective.

    Not even any Super Mario Bros 3. I think the author of the list was born after 1990.

    Yeah, see that's pretty fucked. Based on the author's reason for #1, Super Mario Bros. 3 should have been in the top 3. If not #1.

    Also, I would have put RE2 in the top 10....I only skimmed this but, based on innovation, which seems to be a recurring theme with the author, Seaman for Dreamcast would have been in the top 20.
