41 Metal Gear

I cant believe it wasn't even on the list" I cant think of many other games that could tell a story better than metal gear can. On top of that it completely established the genre of Stealth gameplay single handedly.
The game was also very ahead of its time as far as creativity I cant a think of another game that had as many genuine ideas from button tapping, switching control ports, to how creative they used the rumble feature. when at the time the playstation didn't even come standard with rumble. the graphics were also very advanced for its time compared.
i think the only reason its not as nearly appreciated is because its very slow paced and is exclusive to the playstation.
the game was very unique in that it was not repetitive from basic gameplay to the boss battles, you were given the choice of how you would engage the opponent whether it be sneaking up on them and snapping there neck or just choking them till the pass out. what made the game great was the advanced AI ...more - Shimmy

METAL GEAR SOLID is the best video game series of all time. It is recommended to be played by all. Everyone who plays it will be in awe of its cinematic greatness, outstanding gameplay, and its numerous gameplay options and special features. The game is so popular and well respected that the creator, Hideo Kojima, is the most well known and respected video game directors of today. he should win an Oscar for his achievements in the Medal Gear franchise. Since it is a Playstation exclusive it is known mostly by PS fans, but now that he is taking it to XBOX 360, it will become a World-Wide video game console phenomenon. metal gear Solid 3 was my favorite because of the storyline, but MGS4 wins hands down with gameplay and OUTSTANDING Cinematic graphics with well known voice actors and models. Metal Gear series... 10 out of 10

Best Game Series Ever. I Mean The Story Is Better Than Most Hollywood Movies Just The Best, I Hope Metal Gear Will Never end. - copkiller

Storytelling my Hideo Kojima second to none, mix that in with stealth action = gaming masterpiece

42 Portal Portal

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.

Short but sweet. Honestly, I can't think of anything wrong with this game. Yes, it can be beaten in 3-4 hours, but that's fine. It's better to a have a short game, where every moment is a blast, than a long, padded slog.

Amazing graphics

43 Metal Gear Solid Metal 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

44 Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

59 games in and this one is yet to be added. You can thank me later. While Ocarina is a masterpiece in it's own right, A Link to the Past laid the ground work for everything brilliant in a Zelda game, or any action/adventure game for that matter. Never before has a game brought me more joy than this title. Best game ever by a mile. -

Greatest game ever! A lot of weapons, moves, a gigantic world, great puzzles, awesome storyline, awesome 2d graphics and awesome music! Why is Tomb Raider #1? This game is a true masterpiece and it should be experienced by everyone! - loganruckmanman

I don't think it's quite good enough for No. 1, but it deserves far better than this low place. I mean, Nintendo power rated it the second best Video Game on a Nintendo Console! Come on, guys! - LittleZbot

While I do applaud this game for saving the Zelda series from the horror that was Zelda II. Ocarina of Time was much better and made the series famous. I do think this deserves a higher spot than 71 though this should at least be in the top 20.

45 Super Mario Galaxy 2 Super 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

Got This Game Yesterday And I loved It - VideoGamefan5

46 Call of Duty: Black Ops II Call 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

47 Banjo-Kazooie Banjo-Kazooie

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

This is my most favourite game of all time and tops all of these games!

48 Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Assassin'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.

Best game ever... Should at least be on the top 10

49 Left 4 Dead 2 Left 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

50 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion The 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

51 Fallout: New Vegas Fallout: 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

52 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D The 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!

53 Pokemon

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

54 BioShock Infinite BioShock 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.

" great game, it's different yet breath-taking. It's one of those games your not sure about but you love a lot sooner than you think"

55 Starcraft Starcraft

first game I ever played only game till I explode or something

Best Strategy game of all time the game of my childhood played it more then 10 years

Used to play with my mates, and missions on my own. Very good game and way too low!

How is Starcraft not in the Top Tens? It revolutinized Strategy Genre AND The gaming industry. - Aguythatpeopleignores

56 Gears of War Gears 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.

57 Terraria Terraria

This game is way better then Minecraft, it may be 2-D but this game has everything Minecraft has and more! There is more armor, bosses, swords, mobs, events, and etc. It also has more stuff than Minecraft, It has wings, guns, etc. Overall this game has a lot in common with Minecraft, but is better in almost every way.

Minecraft's Better cousin, packed with adventure and fun that any sensible person would love.

Looks very cool and fun. Like Minecraft, is a sandbox, and blocky, so I like it. I want to get it. - floridiancat

I hate how everyone compares Terraria to Minecraft. Two totally different games. The only similarities are you mine and craft. - hype

58 Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

This is my favorite game of all time. Just wow. I knew not that many people love it this much (although the majority of people who have ACTUALLY PLAYED IT love it) so I wasn't as upset as I could've been as I scrolled down past many other great games (and maybe not-so-great games) looking for it. Anyway, I found it, and here I am! I don't know where to start with this game. It combines the amazing aspects of Mario with the complexity, atmosphere, intensity, and immersiveness (is that a word? ) of an RPG. Frankly, the main RPG games I play are the Mario ones, since they really are that fantastic and Mario is my favorite franchise. This game is as close to perfect as you can get. The gameplay is amazing, improving on the great battle system of the original Paper Mario. The characters are original and great, the dialogue is funny and can also be serious, the story is so deep and thought out (especially when compared to most Mario games), the bosses are fun, the levels are unique, and the ...more

The first Paper Mario warmed up our gamer hearts, opened our mind and prepared us to one of the greatest Mario adventures of all-time. When the second installment was announced, people expected VERY much of this game. We weren't disappointed. Nintendo and Intelligent Systems threw us this game that marked a "before" and an "after". One of the best installment of the series.

Wait Call of Duty is over this master piece...THIS IS WHY WE can't HAVE NICE THINGS!

One of the best games ever

59 Halo 2 Halo 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.

60 Ratchet & Clank Up Your Arsenal Ratchet & 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
