Times will be a-changing when they bump Mario, or Zelda, from the #1 spot, yessir smile

Still...overall a nice list to look at. Even if you disagree with many titles (or with the ranking) you still get a lot of names to check out (in case you haven't), so, yarrrr smile

Not a single Wing Commander title on the list? Likewise Sierra adventure games? No Star Trek: 25th Anniversary or Star Trek: Judgement Rites? One rhythm game?

I do believe this list is flawed.

Not that it's grossly flawed, just that it's flawed.

Lordy, Star Trek 25th Anniversary. I first saw this on a demo PC in a Software Etc store about 1992. Back then Software Etc and EB were truly great PC stores. Anyways I sat and watched the demo loop over and over...until the wife got done shopping and dragged me away. It showed a little of the planet stuff and then a space battle with a Klingon Katinga class ship. I was in awe of how great and amazing the graphics were. I thought "Now THAT is Star Trek" I bought it a few months later when it was on sale ..a good year and a half before I even HAD a PC. I would just open it and smell and read the manual and stuff. I was aweful smile I actually still have it with the shrink wrap on it..just cut at one end to get the stuff out. God I loved those two old Star Trek games. Even got the cinematic speech and graphics pack smile

Oh man, what memories. And IMHO, the 25th Anniversary game was the last true good Star Trek game to come out. Sad, no?

Yep... Half of the top 10 are Nintendo properties, and all but two debuted on Nintendo consoles.  Not that they're not great games, but there are certainly more deserving titles that were pushed way down or not on the list at all.

I think that WoW at 83 is a travesty.  How many hours have been sunk into this game?

I don't recall seeing any of the Diablo games either.  What gives?

Madden also deserves at least an honorable mention.

Because it's not that good? All it is is a VERY easy loot grind (until you hit 70) that's duplicated in any of the Korean MMOs. It just happens to have some nice graphics wrapped around it, a world that everybody knows, and its system requirements scale from just about any PC with a 3D graphics card on up.

A Final Unity came out after 25th Anniversary, didn't it? Also a fine game, IMO.

But, yeah, the list is very PC-phobic. No Master of Magic or MOO, either.  icon_confused

And no MoM or MoO on that list? BOO.

They were both awesome-all those old Trek games were. I would love to have them again.

Agreed totally. They felt like the perfect 'extension' of the old TV shows. Unfortunately the genre as a whole is gone pretty much for good. I blame the ADHD society of today - if you can't kill three things every minute, it's crap.

Is MOO3 on the list?  They gave that game a 9.2, so it must have been pretty good.

Not a bad list, but very much a gamer reviewer's top 100 IMO; the inlcusion of too many RTS's makes it apparent. There's also a few games I really don't think belong there. I.e. no way I'd have Silent Hill 2 but no Resident Evil 2 and Burnout 3 while no Forza or Crazy taxi. KoTOR and Metroid Prime (GC) alsol need to be closer to the top.
And other than Grim Fandango, there's hardly an adventure game in the list. I mean where's The Beast Within: Gabriel Knights, The Curse of Monkey Island or The Longest Journey?

And more importantly, everyone got to keep their job that way!
