61Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater

This game is absolutelly perfect. Everything about it just gives me shivers down my spine. If you where to play this game now. I mean right now. You definitely wouldn't regret it. In other words why the hell haven't you played this? Best game in the best franchise ever created. The famous hideo kojima really outdid himself with this MASTERPIECE so stop reading and start playing. For me... a person you have never met. Who has scoured through the list to find this gem so I could write a comment. Please play it

Everything, the good, the bad, make the whole game click perfectly.

My favorite game of all time next to EarthBound

Best in the series

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.

I get that A LOT of you will disagree, but it is awesome anyway. The music is nice, the mob and item variety is, HUGE! 99 mobs? HOLY COW! The gameplayu is awesome, and it's like an upgraded minecraft. - Thepenguinking2

This is one of my favorite games ever. Played it ever single day in existence since I bought it. - Extractinator04

63Jak II

The, without a doubt, best video game of all time. The story is INCREDIBLE, the enemies are well thought out, the script is actually funny, the free roam to do your own thing is just so fun(crimson guards, hijacking vehicles, randomly assaulting people in the street- assassin's creed style, but better, and more stuff to do. Eat THAT, Ubisoft! )and overall just an epic experience. The way Jak suddenly turns into an angry menace from a silent hero is a little strange, but that's the only, MINUSCULE blip. The ideas, such as dark Jak, the weapons(peacemaker for the win, baby! ) and daxter missions are unique. COMPLETELY outshines R&C, the levels are epic (if you've played this, you'll remember the tank level. GOD, that was fun! Hard, but the greatest level on a game ever made. ) and overall, no other game can touch Jak and Daxter for story, action, free roam and excitement.

By the way all of them are good, Jak 3 and the precursor legacy are still 10/10 games, but Jak and Daxter is ...more

Incredible! Extremely fun and challenging! There's too much to say about this game. This is one of the best games I've ever played before. If you like a challenge, this game is good for you! If only I still had my ps2 so I could play this game all over again!

So fun I played it 2 days straight and beat it!

Amazing but SO hard

64Kingdom Hearts

Best Game I have ever played. You build a relationship with the characters and you are on the journey with them. I cried after finally beating it :'(

AMAZING! There's no other way to describe this game. It combines Final Fantasy and Disney to form the greatest video game ever.

Best story and soundtrack from any video game I've ever played in my life. Great gameplay. You truly care for the characters. A true masterpiece.

Kingdom Hearts is the best game of all time.

65Halo Reach

Halo reach has the best multiplayer ever. And if you don't like the multiplayer then check out the campaign. The forge is the best place to play privately with your friends, and just let out all of the randomness inside of you. Go ahead, hate it, but it is way better than the first and the last game on this list.

It has so much action. Everybody who played this should vote for it. Everyone should get it. It is number one

This may seem crazy, but I think this is the best halo. I love the online gameplay and it has the best halo map ever, sword base

Bungie saved their best till last.

Responsible for a great amount of innovations within the industry all while offering the first instance of actual virtual tourism within a video game (and in this case even to a different generation) shenmue is a must play for anyone who loves video games. Even with it's outdated graphics Shenmue still offers more attention to detail than 99% of other video games and though it is slower paced than it's sequel (that is just as good or better depending on who you ask) the patient will be rewarded with an amazing experience that will take them across Yokosuka and all the way to China.

What can I say that hasn't already been said. This game feels more like a spiritual journey. The music, the characters, the innovative gameplay that inspired games like Grand Theft Auto and Yakuza, the combat system, and the overall subtle spiritual and philosophical messages. When you put Shenmue in your Dreamcast/Xbox you aren't playing a game, you're living an unforgettable experience.

This game was astounding and groundbreaking at the time and so many games like Heavy Rain and Uncharted have borrowed elements from this original masterpiece! The story was moving, compelling and gameplay super fun, I can never remember feeling so immersed in a game that I knew the streets as if they were a place I grew up! Stunning to look at still to this day! Sega have been a disappointing brand since Dreamcast, where is Shenmue 3? They need to finish the story!

One of the best games on the Dreamcast. - htoutlaws2012

This is awesome you should get this

Best assassins creed game ever

Terrible game how is it this high!

68Luigi's Mansion

It was a launch title for the gamecube and sported some of the best graphics and gameplay that the console has ever seen. It's not much for length, and the story is kind of weak, but the charm and the secrets will keep you coming back for more after the credits roll. At least that is what it did to me. - kingofgames321

Luigi's Mansion was my second video game and I still play and replay it to this day. It does not get the love it deserves, and though it has an okay sequel, nothing beats the original.

Fun! But it can startle me some times.

Luigi's Mansion is bad.

69Sonic Generations

I remember when I was a Sonic fanboy and instantly liked everything that was it. Now most of them I have lost all connections too. But this, along with the original in 1991 and Sonic Adventure, has stayed with me, and I personally think that this is the greatest Sonic game ever. Also, the past few Sonic games have been a steaming pile of! $? &. - UltraGamer

YAY! Papa Sonic and Baby Sonic! (Sorry if it's lame. I couldn't think of anything else. )

This game was a throwback to the other sonic games and I think it was a great idea.

Gotta go fast. *Ominous music plays*

70Shadow of the Colossus

Absolutely gorgeous, well executed, and a game that needs no words. It is timeless, and it touches you, seeing these massive beasts die by your hand. Seeing Aggro fall was an Old Yeller moment, a gaming moment that will live with me.

In my opinion, this is the best game ever made (with all due respect to The Legend of Zelda).

As you dig further into the game, your actions aren't met with an emotional feel of triumph. When you finally drive your sword in for the killing blow, there's a sense of sadness. You've ended something beautiful, something without Malice or rage.

Shadow of the Colossus is definitely one of the best games ever. I can't think of any game that has this epic and involving story without a single spoken word from the hero. Shadow of the Colossus deserves to be called video game art.

Why isn't this game higher? Great game!

So few people played, which is a shame, because it barley beats out Metal Gear Solid as the all time greatest game.

71Halo: Combat Evolved

This was literally the best game of all time, and still is. The Graphics, sound, plot, action and gameplay are all things which are completely outstanding both for its time period and for all time. This was my favorite game I ever played, and most people didn't even play it in this generation, which is sad. When there was no online multiplayer, no one knew how to do that except to link up an Xbox through some online bs... This game is by far the best of all time, the best there ever will be, far superior than even its sequels.

Best game because it started the best franchise ever known to man. It doesn't get any better than halo

The Original. wont say this is the best game ever, but it was the first of its kind, and it knocked it outta the park. member playing online, with my Xbox hooked up to my computer, and playing lan games against other people online. Multiplayer before it even came out. thast what made the game great for me, the multiplayer.. as a single player, it's a mediocre, multiplayer, best in class for even 5 years to come, with is impressive in ANY area involving tech.

When Bungie were great.

72Call of Duty

This game sucks! It's also overrated.

The first shooting game I ever played was Call of Duty the big red one

73Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

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!

Once you play this game, you'll be thanking me for adding it. It is my favorite game. Yes, beating Ocarina, it's just that good.

One of the best games ever

This should take Minecrafts place, but NO this list has to be made by how popular it is! if doom isn't popular how come doom's fanbase has survived and is still healthy after 20 YEARS!

It's better than that game Minecraft

Honestly this is one of the best of all time how fitting it comes at 69 but in all top 5 game for sure. - htoutlaws2012

Another bad ass multi player game the kills were subpar - mountainhawk

75Super Metroid

This is the greatest game I've ever played, I can't come up with a single problem with it. It's a massive non-linear world that's you're totally free to explore, with amazing level and map design so that way you never feel lost and a great sense of directon, but it never holds your hand and lets you do what you wish as you explore the massive world.

Amazing animation and graphics that still hold up great today. It comes complete with a great soundtrack, epic and memorible bosses, tons of collectables, awesome powerups that change how you play, the greatest intro to a video game ever, an extremely unique and memorable story which was extremely rare for the time, delivered in a way that never breaks, but helps, immersion.

I wish that it was higher on the list but it's not as popular as the other games, even if it's so much better.

How is this game at 65? It's one of the most innovative and near-flawless in terms of game design. Its graphics haven't aged at all. The game is huge for its time and also atmospheric, which was rare with the technical limitations games had back then.

Keep note to self, that Super Metroid is currently IGN's top 2 favorite video game.

Story: 8/10.
Graphics: 10/10.
Music: 8/10.
Sound: 10/10.
Voice acting: 10/10.
Gameplay: 5/10.
Difficulty: 10/10.
Creativity: 9/10.
Nostalgia level: 9/10.
Humor level: 5/10 (this game is not a comedy game, but it does crack me up for strange reasons)
Controls: 9/10.
Animation: 10/10.

Overall, this game gets a 9/10 rating.

The top 1 greatest game in the world is Super Mario 64 (minus its DS remake).

75? I don't think this is the best, but I'm just gonna up vote this

76The Walking Dead

This game was amazing. It had likable characters, a good story line, and the ending was extremely emotional. I will not spoil it but if you played the game and got through the ending without shedding at least a tear well congratulations you psychopath. It also shows how jut a point and click game can be very enjoyable to play. Over all, just an amazing game. Two thumbs up over here.

The walking dead was, at its worst, amazing. It showed how simple gameplay can be fun with a great and emotional story, and you actually felt for the characters. It deserves higher on this list and deserved game of the year

100! Really? This game deserves to be #1. The story is hands down the best of all video games ever made. I understand some people want repetitive shooting games but not even in top 10?

Forever and always, The Walking Dead holds a special place in my heart

77Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped

This, Ratchet & Clank 3, Battlefront 2, WWE Here Comes the Pain and Spyro The Dragon deserve to be way higher in my opinion

Epic game, Crash died out due to Activision. It deserves to come back, it is just as amazing as games like Grand Theft Auto V or The Last of Us.

This game is awesome! Level variety, power ups, high replayability, and great music.

78Mass Effect 3

There's a lot of problems with the endings, such as 'since when could a cain kill a reaper', 'why don't we use the conduit to get on the citadel', why does the red ending kill the Geth (that's making a gray decision black and white) and why does the green and of corse the ghost by one even exist but since the extended cut 'lack of choice' isn't one of them. I don't understand why people complain about that.

Great game! Horrible ending, worst ending ever in gaming history! Amazing til the last 10 min though!

Choose your colour lights for ending.

Shouldn't even be in the top 100.

I refused to play it till I received the patched ending.

79The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

It's a beautiful, sprawling, and open-ended game that lets you play pretty much however you like as long as you're willing to fill in a few blanks using your imagination. One of the best RPG games ever.

As the years passed, the importance of these kind games are getting forgotten. I always get upset about this fact. - xanjr

What the hell is this game doing at #90?!? The best experience I, and countless others, have ever had was with this game. It's unique and engaging world, with amazing dungeons and characters to meet with plenty of enemies, quest, and place to find and explore, and its amazing storyline.

I wearno nostalgia glasses, and I am talking Morrowind Vanilla. This game is beat, even today. Kids of this generation might never understand...

It's sad see that a masterpiece like this is so low in this list. I don't even born in the time of the old school games.

Don't worry, they may well remake it in time.

80Fable II

Fable 2 is the best game of all time. This game is what sparked my love for gaming. This should at least be in the top 5

Fable 1&2 are definitely part of a legendary game list for me.
