41Pokemon Emerald


Emerald is one of the best of the Pokemon games (this is my favorite Pokemon generation) and it should be at least number 10. One of the best stories, unique that it charms both adults and children. I played my first Pokemon game, Pokemon Sapphire, at age six with my friend; we sat their for hours with our game boy advances just leveling up Pokemon. Pokemon Emerald existed back when the Pokemon games were hard; like, actually hard. I find Pokemon Emerald harder than games like Skyrim or Tomb Raider.

The gameplay is challenging but not infuriating at all; the game flows smoothly and there are no major issues (other than walking indoors, something incorporated in later games) Pokemon Emerald doesn't have all of the extra things like Mega Evolution, 3d lands and 600+ Pokemon. Although I like how diverse and open to everyone Pokemon now is, its nice to remember when Pokemon was simple but amazing, as shown with ...more

Best Pokemon game ever! 10/10 in my opinion. Zelda and Pokemon are my 2 favorite series of all time, so I'm not sure which is better, this or OoT, but this needs to be WAY higher. It is the highest Pokemon game on the list yet only at 38?

Should be in the top 10. Is an absolutely amazing game. - 1234567890qwerty

This deserves more than mario galaxy for sure

42Fallout: New Vegas

My personal favorite in the series simply because it has most of the lore I liked from fallout 1 and 2 while being far superior gameplay wise to fallout 3. I get pissed off at how much people overate fallout 3 to New Vegas because New Vegas in my opinion is the best fallout game ever released besides fallout 2 and fallout 1 (I think New Vegas is even better than fallout 4 because of the wide variety of choices). Fallout 3 is not better than fallout New Vegas so (pleased don't get pissed this is my opinion)!

In my opinion the best game of all TIME! The amount of story and the overall impact that you have on the world blew my mind away. I've completely dissected this game and done all the side quests. your actions have meaning in the fallout series and this is a prime example of either treating it like real life or deciding to not care. If you haven't played it your missing out

Providing hours of fun, and having a significant replay value, it is well worth the money for any gamer.

My favorite game of all time

43The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

While there are many detractors regarding Oblivion, in my opinion, no other action RPG offers as much replay value. The sheer variety of character builds and styles is the trump card for Oblivion. Skyrim has the graphics but very few styles that you can play. Morrowind also has a great variety of character styles, but there's just something about Oblivion that keeps drawing you back. While I prefer the ambiance of Morrowind and the graphics of Skyrim, Oblivion is the best overall.

The freedom to be who you want to be in a fantasy world - will you save people or slay people? Go treasure hunting in a dungeon or steal from the closest house? In the Elder Scrolls, it's up to you.

A pretty good game. Might have some creepy and scary stuff so if your afraid of everything don't play this game. But actually you can play it if you like. You can find monsters and destroy them. It's KIND of like Minecraft except it's not made out of blocks and doesn't have the creeper.

Best elder scrolls game! - Raxez

44Super Mario Galaxy 2

This is the most imaginative, polished, and fun 3D platformer I have ever played, and I can happily say it is my favorite game of all time. - montreal45

Mario's best moment yet! Several galaxies, 240 stars to get, AMAZING graphics and soundtrack, the spin attack is really useful, and so much more! There is yet to be a better Mario game. No, I have not gotten a 3ds yet. - Thepenguinking2

This IS awesomely awesome, with a blend of awesomeness and awesome friends of awesomely extreme awesomeness

This is my second favorite game. Basically awesome and hard levels of all sorts, and amazing music. If you haven't played, I highly recommend that you do. - M4j0r45

This game is the best adventure game with a lot of personality and humor. You just can't top that.

HOW IS THIS NOT IN THE TOP 15! AND Call of Duty 6 IS!? Call of Duty 4 was good but come on guys s=most of these games are quality, is this better than mario 64 and you know it! - Dr_Sandvichius

Different and amazing worlds, transforming into cool things, amazing music, super fun gameplay... So much nostalgia. - ShuhBanggg

It rivals Mario 64. That's how talented Rare were.

46Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood

This is best game as I know I have played it more than 3 times completely and still I want to play it. I think this should be the number 1 at least top5.

BEST story and Jesper Kyd music awesome. Just play once you'll love it more than me.

47Left 4 Dead 2

This game was the best muti-player game on 360 hard to beat when your partner croaks all of the bad guys come for you at the end of the level and the swarms that you have to stave off - mountainhawk

L4D2 is a action packed game with gargantuan amount of bloodshed, insanity and huge number blood loving zombies which keep coming at you just to get their body parts chopped off with chainsaws, katanas and even frying pans. The extreme and insane amount of madness is perfect for trigger happy people and it also has molotovs :D.

I really scary, this is my best zombie games all times, I want to download this but my internet connectivity is low to download this games (Go Indonesian)

I have so many memories with this game. I feel that this game is VERY underrated. Campaign is awesome. Versus is fun. Amazing Game - VenomxShocker

48Call of Duty: Black Ops II

I don't care about Call of Duty so I didn't even bother with Ghosts, my left finger cramped after clicking 18 hours straight,

Call of Duty has fell some times, but BO2 is a real rise, not only in Call of Duty series, but also in the gaming history.(You know, I don't blame anyone for not liking it, but it's a cool game.)

No way is it one of the best games ever. All you do is shoot, run, kill, shoot, run, and kill over and over again

Best game ever made in history

49BioShock Infinite

This game was incredible!
The combat was fun, it was fast paced and action packed, the graphics were phenomenal, but most importantly... The story was unbelievable! Best ending ever

I don't think people understand how good this game is, it has an amazing storyline, the best and most com twist ever, It also has great action and possibly is the best all round game ever?

My new favorite game of all time. Epic Story, especially the end is something, you wont find that often.

Awesome and amazing looking game! A great trilogy for BioShock. Amazing game - Saurabh508

50Metal Gear Solid

Oh come on, how is this not in the top 10? Metal Gear Solid revolutionised the video game industry and quality of gaming in general. I consider it one of the best games on the PS1 and in the history of video gaming. It's quite insulting to find this under many overhyped games (I'm looking at you Call of Duty).

This is one of the best video game everywhere but here. GOSH! Come on, guys.

Snake Is A BadAss And So Is This Game

Great story, best stealth game made. - htoutlaws2012

Portal is an amazing game that doesn't get nearly enough credit. It may be short, but it's funny, creepy, and has the best villain ever: GLaDOS. - Fwingsnitch

A new and original idea that had fans lusting over it the minute it was released.

This game has great puzzles, but the true bueaty in Portal is the story. The song at the end of the game states that Aperture Science does what it must, because it can. This relates to real life in many ways, and the end is sad and great. In my opinion this game is perfect and nothing will ever beat it. - Volvogia

Most original game on the planet! Why so low? Too many idiots on this planet

Please! This game is great! Pokemon is a fun and adventurous game people could like if they just play it. Great music, great characters, and great stories (sometimes). It will always be great to play and everyone should just open up! When I was younger I hated Pokemon (But guess what! I have not played an actual game! ). Conclusion: If you do not like it, it maybe because you have not played it.

Pokemon is the best selling RPG that totally deserves to be higher on this list. With MILLIONS of team combinations you can play the game over and over with different combos. Pokemon can let you play the game and have complete control over yourself is something that is very rare in games that kids can play. It's also awesome for all ages. Althouh I agree that some of the games in the top ten (Super smash bros, Legend of Zelda) deserve to be in the top ten, Pokemon will always be my Number One.

Come on! This game is underrated. It's the bestselling Rpg franchise in the whole world (yeah Shocker! Its not final fantasy). This game is great in every way from gameplay to characters, its honestly my favorite game franchise ever but it would never be able to beat Super Mario. By the way, Pokemon is the 2nd bestselling videogame franchise in the world

Pokemon is a franchise, not a single game you idiots. - LightBreaker08

53The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D

It's a portable Ocarina of Time but with better graphics, 3D, and better controls. Whats not to love?

But it's a 2D game using 3D polygons to give the impression of 3D depth of field in the first place, and then utilises the now defunct Virtua Boy to really make it a 3Dx2 experience?

I know right! you can't even beat the damn classics unless you actually know how to beat the game and you have the game!

54Halo 2

Halo 2 and I have a deep history, I mean I've played the game for years and years now and I just had to give it a vote. Overall it's my favorite game; great story, great gameplay, great characters and most of all; great game. - CoyRex1

Best halo game in my opinion. Best levels, best story fun multiplayer. It did everything good about combat evolved, but this one had dual wield weapons, energy swords and the arbiter. While halo 3 and reach are still great, halo 2 is where its at!

Should be in the top ten! Definitely had the best multiplayer of all the Halo games. This should at least be higher than Reach.

The GOAT. Better than Halo 3 hands down.

So many games in one! You have the power to build simple levels, but also to script very intricate ones! I'm actually one of the most famous users (I've had 4 first pagers) but still! And it's free! PLAY IT!

Before The Days of Minecraft, There Was A Game That Actually Had Endings.

ROBLOX IS AMAZING! IT SHOULD BE definitely IN THE TOP 10! I am a noob there but its amazing. You could play hunger games, catching fire, soccer, survivor, war games, gun games, etc. it is AMAZING! VOTE IT UP!

I love this game so much

57Gears of War

Wow. Just wow. What puts this game aside from other scary shooters, like Dead Space for example, is you can seen what you're killing. It's never too dark. This game blew me away.

The game that introduced us to the chainsaw fatality. - htoutlaws2012

Cliff Blezinski (Sir Lsnceralot himself) disowned the Lancer? I'd be proud of it.

58Golden Eye 007

THE game that started it all. The most popular shooter of the 90's. I'm not taking away from the others with the unfair advantage of better graphics but this game takes the cake.

This game established the birth of great multiplayer gaming. It is the best bond movie of all time and the game is even better.

The legend the is Golden Eye. The game that paved the way for all other first person shooters. Humanity has evolved around this game...

The best game ever

59Ratchet & Clank Up Your Arsenal

Back before R&C was ruined by all 4 one the franchise was at it's best. On the PS2 everyone had at least one R&C game and this one was surely the best of them all. Taking everything that made Going commando great and extending it with more upgradable weapons (each one unique and innovative on it's own) awesome side missions and of course, a creative and entertaining storyline with one of my all time favorite villians: Dr Nefarious. Top things off with a multiplayer competable with HALO and you have yourself a lasting yet epic game sure to put a smile on your face. - Drbazinga

VERY good platform game, with lots to do and awesome characters, insomniac before they where known for there creative weapon design with fallout were known for there creative weapon design with ratchet and clank...

The first Ratchet and Clank game I played was "Size Matters". It was very fun, and I ended up getting the first 3 games. This game is simply amazing-story, weapons, and just fun. - Garythesnail

Quite possessively one of the most humorous games ever. - htoutlaws2012

60Mortal Kombat

The most famous and entertaining fighting game ever. MK ruled in the 90's and still looked great in the 2000s. Mortal Kombat (2011) is another achievement for this franchise - Magnolia

My vote has to go to MK. Definitely my favorite game of all time. It's just fun to play, and that's what counts. - wyattoelkers

Mortal Kombat is the most violent and exciting game you'll ever play with a great story and interesting characters mortal kombat is the best fighting game period. - ScorpDevil4

How it is possible that mortal kombat is not in top 10
