23Assassin's Creed II

I don't like it when people say something is the best ever, you have to have done everything to say that. However,I think AC2 is one of the best games ever, the beautiful cities and the sad yet amazing stoyline produce a truly brilliant game. The story of Ezio Auditore the Firenze is a great work of fiction and should be remembered as one of the best game characters ever made. Also, this game made me want to learn Italian, which I absolutely love. And anyone who says GTA5 is better than this is very very wrong.

Why the hell is Assassins Creed I here Assassins Creed II improved on next to everything that was bad about the orignal. Great Story, Great Protagonist, Great Gameplay.

24God of War

God of war should be number 1 its bo$$

25Super Smash Bros. Brawl

My personal favorite game. Stop hating on Nintendo, people.

Best game in the 21st century!

26Mass Effect 2

One of the most breathtaking stories I've ever had the pleasure of undergoing in a game.

27Super Mario Galaxy 2
28Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

I really love this game it's like my 2 favorite game ever. It has a great storyline and has so many cool places to explore. It has great graphics and so many levels to keep the fun going. I personally think it's the best AC game!

It's a tossup between AC Black Flag and AC2 on which is the best in the series for me. And I think black flag might have the edge... with beautiful worlds, interesting characters and an ending that will melt your heart. If you haven't played this game, then you really need to.

29Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic

Kotor was one of the first RPG games to give you the ability to make choices which affect the main character, other characters, and the overall storyline. This game tells the story of the ancient Jedi, and their struggle against the ancient Sith in a time of war and conquest. As a Star Wars fan, this game kept me up for many many nights. It is a true GOAT, a timeless RPG that everyone should play.

Not only the best Star Wars game to come out to date, but it was also the first game that your descions and the dialogue you select affect the eventual outcome of the game.

This is the second best game of all time (star wars battlefront 2 is not on the list) but I love this game so much I've had it since I was 5 and I've spent weeks playing it and I've beat it 5 times it's so fun to replay over and over because there is so many sidequests and possibilitys in the game. this game is truly the second best game ever.

30Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker

Phenomenal game and has aged extremely well. Easily my favorite Zelda and a pinnacle of gaming. - evoxpisces

31Borderlands 2

Totally Underrated...Should Be higher...Unique visuals,good story and badass gameplay

32The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

All these puny games topping the chart are just lucky that Witcher 3 came out late.

33Team Fortress 2

Very fun PC game which is free now. 9 different player types.

How is it number 33. It should be at least in the top 10 or even 5

34Animal Crossing

Very fun game to chill out.

35Star Wars: Empire at War

A Great Strategy Game That Changed How Quite A Few Companies Did Battles

36The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

No other game is so full of things to do and paths to choose. The countless hours that can and will be sunk into this game is unparalleled. The elder scrolls in general redefine gaming with each installment but oblivion has the perfect balance of variety and story. By the time you run out of things to do you feel like a citizen of tamriel. No matter who you are or what type of games you like, oblivion will never cease to amaze and enthrall you.

I've tried playing Oblivion many times and I can never get into it. I played Skyrim first. Perhaps this is my mistake.
