Game Informer just released their 200th issue, and with it put together their list of top 200 games. Its an interesting list with some really good stuff in there, though the most intriguing part is when some of these games were released (damn I feel old). According to the magazine they took into account "quality, cultural relevance, and industry impact" with votes tallied "by a clever computer application and a series of heated meetings to parse the results". I'm sure not everyone will agree, but I think they did a pretty good job.

No complaints besides Sonic 2 being lower than Sonic 1 despite their mini review saying it's better than Sonic 1 and the best Sonic game ever.

Glancing over, seeing Final Fantasy III ahead of VII and Street Fighter II all the way down at 25 and I'm done.

Call me a whiny geek, but Street Fighter II is in the top five or your list is invalid, whether you personally liked the game or not, going by what they took into account.

I'll call you correct and would buy you a drink on the SF II portion, but then take it away for saying FF III is worse than VII. Of course, IV is the best FF IMHO, So Yeah.

Other quick hits;

- Super Mario 64 only revelutionized 3d platforming. 13 is inexcusable.

- A Link to the Past took what was great about Zelda and amped it to 11. Should be higher.

- Chrono Trigger NOT being near the Top 5 is appalling, and IMHO is #1 with a BULLET.


Lists are subjective, but I disagree with several of these.

Wow - pretty much impossible to come up with a list like this that would resonate with all, but they've done a pretty darn good job for mine. So Kudos.

I notice everything is 'home platform' rather than arcade, which if that's how they've defined 'games' is fine. I always found the experience of games like Gauntlet never translated as well in the home, as you couldn't beat you and three of your mates crowded around a machine in a dingy arcade. We could never really recreate that atmosphere. Same for some of the multiplayer horizontal fighters.

Good to see some older games getting some love, proving that good gameplay != killer graphics only.

Worryingly, there aren't too many games on that list that I haven't played

Random comments
Unless I missed it, no love for Dune 2? In terms of it's importance to the industry, I would think it would rate pretty high. I remember a time when everyione I knew was playing it until Warcraft 2 and C&C came out.

Good to see Peggle getting some love.

I still have a working NES and cartridges for items 2, 7 & 9. SM3 was so much deeper than anything else on the NES, but came at the end of the platform. I poured so much time into this, leaving the console powered up for days at a time trying to finish the game.

Of all the Sid Meier games, no Civ 2 (unless I missed it again) I thought that one was his peak and what took his name to bigger than the game.

Hey SM2 at #81. I wonder which one they mean? The weirdo re-badged one with the onion tossing? I seem to remember that some parts of the world got differing games?

To answer some questions:
-Yes it was the SMB2 game with the throwing of the onions
-There are quite a few arcade games on the list (including gauntlet)
-no Dune 2
-no Civ 2 (but there was Civ 1 and Civ 4)


My thoughts
-While SM64 was a little high at 13, and Link to the Past could be higher than 11, I can't think of a game in the top 10 to remove (I really think the two most likely candidates (HLF2 and Metroid) deserve to be in the top 10 as well)
-Punch Out was great, but it was rated a little high
-whoever said it was right, Street Fighter 2 should at least be in the top 20
-Halo basically ensured the X-box would survive until more games came out therefore it should be a little higher than 39

Pong is too low. Including NBA Jam but not Cyberball seems weird to me. Overlooking Tempest and Defender seems weird to me. However, I am also "old."

Dunno about Ms. Pac-Man in relation to Pac-Man. I understand WHY, but I still have to go with the "can't have (x) without having (y) first" argument...

Seems unlikely so many games in the Super Mario franchise would qualify. In my (old) mind, they blur.

Wasn't Intellivision the first console to have game vocals with the Intellivoice hardware add-on? That seems like a significant bump in the evolution of games. I recall that system's B-17 Bomber had a variety of voices within one game, including one with a thick Southern accent. That level of atmosphere and technology should earn a ranking.

Who released TETRIS in 1984? Lord knows, there have been some incredible renditions and version that have come out. I'd probably give my vote to the pirate Tengen version that came out for the NES, or the original for the Game Boy over a PC version I can't remember. Lord knows, in the day of Shareware and BBSes, I was able to get over fifteen versions of the game from developers that I can't even remember.

Tetris Attack: wasn't that a Mario-esque game with Yoshi? I remember it being a very fun game.

I'm gonna guess I'm in the minority, but I hated Super Mario 64.

I'm not happy that Final Fantasy VIII isn't on that list. FFVII's ending really irked me. For a game with the word FINAL in it, it seemed to need a few other parts to finish the story, such as an additional game and a movie or something. I dunno. Anyhow, FFVIII had a set ending, with great characters and a great storyline with Squall and Rinoa. It's easily my favorite out of the series.

And yes, I know that Aeris's death is a brilliant turning point in video games, so I'm not denouncing the game's greatness. I just thought that 8 was better than 7.

The fact that Dance Dance Revolution isn't on this list is a crying shame.

Vice City was A LOT better than San Andreas. Sorry.

I agree with Oliver on GTA: Vice City. It might be okay to put GTA III ahead of it (I wouldn't myself as VC was the game that got me into GTA), but to put VC below SA is silly.

Ocarina of Time is way too low on this list. As is Metroid Prime.

The biggest omission is any of the Paper Mario games, especially Paper Mario 2: The Thousand Year Door. That's the game that showed me that I could actually like an RPG game.

A couple years ago, Sven (formerly of the DVDVR board) did a massive "best games ever" thread that's worth tracking down, even if it's a bit dated now.

Urgh. How the hell did I miss all that? Sorry all. Scary bit is it wasn't as if I did a 3 second scan and then posted either. Mental Note - need to check everything I did at work today when I get in tomorrow.

CivII and Dune2 points still stand though. Thanks for the corrrections.

Agreed. TSB for the NES is still the best football video game I've ever played, and I've been playing Madden games since Madden '93. As soon as Nintendo decides to release TSB for the Virtual Console I'm buying another Wii (I sold all the Wiis I owned before).

Also, the list has it right re: the order of Grand Theft Auto games. GTA III revolutionized free-form gaming. GTA IV took it to a whole 'nother level of graphics and depth. Vice City was a SWEET game and remains one of my all time favorites, but San Andreas was much, much deeper, more difficult, and more rewarding to make progress in. Take everything that was great about Vice City and make the game like five times larger and give it a little presentational upgrade to boot. It was like the intermediate step between GTA III and GTA IV in terms of bringing something new to the table.

Quick thoughts:

-Did anyone find ANY wrestling game on there? If we have boxing games, you think we would have wrestling games.

-COD4's is an amazing game, but 17 seems to be amazingly high. Especially when you compare it with any of the Halo games, the first at 39. Halo 3's multiplayer alone should warrant at least SOME inclusion on this list for the Forge feature that is pretty much going to keep that game alive forever. Love or hate the series, Halo outside of the top 25 makes little sense.

-While I love me some zelda, I don't know how ANY of the games in that series would beat out Mario in terms of cultural relevancy, and the quality of the games would be a push at the NES level. I'd switch Mario 1 with Zelda 1, and then swap a Link to the Past with the Original Zelda. In terms of quality, you can't beat A Link to the Past.

-Mario 64 is top-ten worthy.

-No Donkey Kong Country? That was a pretty important platformer series for the SNES.

As a PC only gamer, the list is kind of meh for me.

- It's good to see X-Com getting some love, but it's about 150 spots too low on the list.

- It's also good to see Roberta Williams getting some love, even if I do think they picked the wrong King's Quest game.

- Putting Oblivion above games like Baldur's Gate II and Planescape: Torment is just wrong. I really enjoyed Oblivion, but it wasn't as good as either of the aforementioned games. For that matter, I'm not sure Oblivion was better than Morrowwind.

- As others have noted, Civ II was much better and much more addictive than Civ IV.

- I'd probably argue that Max Payne is too low on the list as well.

- Echoing CRZ, where's Defender? For that matter, where's the arcade version of Smash TV? The quarters spent on those games probably would have financed one of my years of graduate school.

- Finally, where's M.U.L.E. and either Master of Orion or MOO II? The amount of time I spent on those games is just ludicrous and they were undeniably influential and lots of fun.

      Call me a whiny geek, but Street Fighter II is in the top five or your list is invalid, whether you personally liked the game or not, going by what they took into account.


    I'll call you correct and would buy you a drink on the SF II portion, but then take it away for saying FF III is worse than VII. Of course, IV is the best FF IMHO, So Yeah.

I'm not saying FF III wasn't awesome, but in terms of "quality, cultural relevance, and industry impact" I think VII wins at least the last two on that list, pretty easily.

That's why SF II should be higher, the whole fighting game explosion was started by that game.

Clearly, there is altogether not enough Manic Miner on this list.

I still maintain that Super Mario Bros was one of the most hideously overrated games in the history of man, but nearly a quarter of a century on I'm just about ready to accept that the rest of the world will never come round to my way of thinking.

Wasn't it Madden that first introduced the 'vertical POV' type camera angle that most football games since went on to adopt? If so, I would've thought Madden should get some more love just for that. And the player-crushing ambulance from '92 remains one of the finest things in sports games' history. ;)

I had this game on Gamecube, then played it on PS2, and now have the ported Wii version. Still love this game.

Xenosaga makes the list at #152, but Xenogears is nowhere to be found. Huh!?
