Bioshock should have been in the top 10 for sure. 

 

And not even a mention of orc slayer or little adventure on the prairie!? 

 

Quite frankly I'm APPALLED!

Jedi Outcast, Fallout 2, Witcher 3, KOTOR, Persona 5, and Metal Gear Solid. I mean, I don't fully agree with the list but at least there's some form of taste.

Since their definition of “Best” was: How much did this game impact us personally, as well as the industry as a whole, when it came out? I suppose that makes it partially difficult to argue with some of the placement.

 

This list doesn’t even have Disgaea on it. It’s toilet paper to me.

I knew this list was going to be a train wreck as soon as I saw Pokemon Go on there. It barely even qualifies for a game, let alone one of the best ever made... :facepalm: I get that these kinds of lists get them a lot of clicks, but all they're really doing is embarrassing themselves.

It's not the worst list in the world but Pokemon Go shouldn't be on there.

Ranking games is pretty pointless, literally everyone's gonna have a different opinion. Aside from maybe 10 or so absolute favourites there'd be no ranking in my Top 100 at all, but a lot of these games would make mine (except Pokemon Go- miss me with that bullshit)

I can respect anyone’s opinion with regard to making these kinds of lists, especially knowing how absurd it is to try ranking 100 games by any metric, but not including a single Dragon Quest is a bit silly. Personally would have chosen at least VIII, though my favorite is III.

 

As ever, the stories about how these kinds of collaborative lists are made are far more interesting than the actual list, but being IGN I’m sure the impassioned takes left on the cutting room floor are buried in a video or podcast thing somewhere instead of in a nice article.

Not the worst, but not particularly great either. FFVI's really low, no TWEWY, Chrono Trigger's top 10 material, has MGS 1-3, but no 4,  no Fire Emblem Awakening, no DMC (the good one), and I can go on and on about games that are at least better than Pokemon Go.

 

At least they put two Persona games on there, even if they put the wrong one over the other :P 

Plus SOTN and SOTC were high up there.

The Witness!? Surely you jest. Out of all the great puzzle games that could've made the list (and apparently didn't), they picked that one? Then again, these are the same people who brought you 7.8 and too much water.

 

Hey, at least Castlevania made it. Whoop whoop.

This list seems to heavily weigh the nostalgia and influential factor (poorly) far heavier than it weighs the objective quality in some of these games. I refuse to believe that anyone in their right mind would only barely put Metal Gear Solid 3 over Minecraft in a list of the best video games ever made. Even excluding a game like Nier Automata, which is deserving of a spot in my opinion, in place for a game like Pokemon GO or even League of Legends is absolutely ridiculous and things like that practically makes the entire point of the list completely redundant.

 

While arguing with the list is fairly pointless since, ultimately, taste in video games is completely subjective, people should be rightfully pointing out the flaws in the selections and blatant lack of thought that went into them. I'd say that only roughly 10% of this list has games in their rightfully deserved places, and that's just a bit embarrassing, really. However, I am glad that a lot of the recent titles secured their spot in the list such as Persona 4/5, Witcher 3, The Last of Us, Portal 2, etc. I just wish that someone actually put time and effort into placing them properly after they had actually made top 100.

No Gran Turismo??? No Ridge Racer??? No Crash Bandicoot??? No Spyro???  No Pac-Man, but you include Ms. Pac-Man??? No Twisted Metal? No Leisure Suit Larry? No Space Invaders or Defender??? No GTA III???

 

It might be helpful to get people over the age of 14 to get together to make up a list of the greatest EVER games...ya know...people who actually played the games on their original systems and experienced the games as they were released, along with the hype and change they created, firsthand...

 

Image result for just saying meme

No Mirror's Edge? Blasphemy!

 

Eh the list doesn't bother me. It's purely opinion-based. There are things that I agree and disagree with.

I'm going to disagree with the people saying Pokemon Go shouldn't be on the list. It has probably the best AR intergration of any game and, with how much risk the developers took, it was a huge success. It also got alot of people to rethink gaming and tons of developers interested in AR and VR. A good game is something you can learn from and Pokemon Go is definitely worth studying.

100% agree with Fire Emblem Awakening. It's my second favorite game of all time. MGS4 is the best game in the series IMO. Not sure how it wasn't on there AT ALL. It's probably a top 15 or top 20 for me.

 

Though, it's all just subjective. I wonder if they get a council to figure it out, if one person does it, if IGN staff had a vote, or what.

How is Cod 4 worse than Arkham City when it propelled MP to a new level, also where is MW2? The Last of Us and Red Dead should've switched places both great games but if I am making a top 10 TLOU is in it. Uncharted 2 is way too low, and Uncharted 4 should've been in this list as well. BioShock which in my opinion is the worse one should've been replaced with 2 or Infinite and even if it was the one that made it spot 30 was way too generous. Goldeneye got absolutely disrespected. Also far too many GTA's when they are pretty much the same basic formula each iteration. Rant over. Lol

I can’t even understand how anyone takes IGN seriously with the level of shilling they do.  If I remember correctly they put Assassin’s Creed Origins on the nomination list for game of the year at least two weeks before the release date.  I know there is probably a perfectly reasonable not “rig the game of the year to force game sales” reason that happened.  I fully expect the list to be populated by hype games and/or paid entries.

I remember a podcast Beyond episode on IGN(many years ago) where they replied to a question and said something to the degree

 

"Listen we just do what you want, if you guys stop reading these top 10s/100s games, movies, etc, then we'll stop making them.

We make them because they get a lot of views, because you click on it. And it's just our opinions. It's the same for anything" 

 

And ya know it's true. Though I've personally seen enough "tops" that I just don't even care. I don't even have a list for myself.

Instead of just linking this clickbait crap, why not list the top 10 and save us all the hassle?
