Rise of the Tomb Raider knocked out Half Life 2.

Batman: Arkham City (not even the best Arkham game) knocked out Dark Souls.

I've seen enough...

God of War is rated 10/10 on IGN . Is this warranted ?

Its so hard to define what "best" even means for an interactive form of entertainment. League is 12 years and still ubiquitous, surely its a form of "best" as well?

It’s IGN. The awards are really based on how quickly the cheques cleared, same as the reviews.

If it's a public vote, then surly there needs to be a cut off...like the past decade or something. The fact that two games that were seeded 1 (Super Metroid and Super Mario Bros) easily got knocked out shows how shite the list is. And zero #1 seeds made past the Round of 32!

Fall Out beats League (probably the most successful online multiplayer game of all time) in first round :lol: :lol:

no-one in particular
Such a limited sense of history, too. I mean, lots of old games are absolutely awful to play nowadays, but so will many of the recent games in the list 20 years from now. But those old games were absolutely amazing and groundbreaking when they appeared. If that's not a criterion, then I'm not interested.

I don't see Final Fantasy Tactics so the entire initial list is just bunk.

Also, you can't really compare single-player games to multiplayer online games.

Worthless.

  • GTA V being a contender for greatest game ever sums up IGN and presumably its audience
  • No Deus Ex ?! But stuff like Apex Legends makes it :lol: Come on now

Most of my gripes mentioned already (No Deus Ex, RoTTR knocking out HL2 worthy of mentioning again)

COD knocking out Goldeneye is ridiculous as is Star Wars KOTOR knocking out THPS2.

In terms of history and their impact on wider gaming culture 'd go

SM64
Half-Life
Half-Life 2
Doom
GTA 3/VC/SA

As a top 5. Possibly Halo should be there

Deus Ex & Witcher 3 are my top 2 probably in that order
Witcher 3 is my number one. KOTOR is up there as is Mass Effect. Any game I’ve managed to play through numerous times makes my list.

There is a degree of realism to V 's world that is just above any other ow game before or after.
But is realism what someone is looking for in GTA V or any other open world game? I don't really think so. GTA V did nothing to me, I didn't like the atmosphere and don't think that it's a particularly good game.

OK how does Goldeneye get beaten by Call of Duty 4 :lol: And I love Apex Legends but Super Metroid is the greatest SNES game of all time.

Mental inclusions. Terrible seeding. Laughable results.

They've not got anything right, at all.

God of War will win but GTA San Andreas is without doubt the best game ever along with maybe RDR2…
