Best Video Games of All Time

81Shadow 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!

Probably the most unique game of all time.

82The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

It is sad how low this game is. Deserves to be within the top 5 at the very least. This game really hit the nail on the head. The story was captivating with interesting characters. The world was unique and detailed. Gameplay was fun and challenging (in the beginning). While I do realize that games like Ocarina of Time were instrumental in the development of the gaming industry, it would be disingenuous to say that those games are better than the Witcher 3 based off of pure gameplay, story, and atmosphere.

Oh my lord the stupidity of people who voted for other games hurts me. This is by far the greatest game ever made. Best world ever, best characters ever. Top 3 all time visuals, top 3 all-time story and top 3 all-time gameplay. Ocarina of time? This has better gameplay better world and better story. Mario? Same thing.

WHY IS THIS SO LOW?! The best graphics in any game in the world hands down, such a rich and thriving open world, the best RPG ever made, cool variations of combat, strong characters (especially Geralt) and an awesome story! One of the best games ever made and it deserves to be on the top ten at least!

How can this game be longer down than Minecraft, I mean, Minecraft!?

83Far Cry 3

This is an amazing game single payer makes it my top 3 game but with coop and multiplayer makes it just under fallout 3 witch is the game with the most meaning and best story but I only have played like 10% of far cry 3 so I don't know if it is even better than I thought

Holy crap 100 place this is surprising! I expected to see this at a reasonable 20th place, for a video games of ALL TIME list, but 100th? That's kind of crazy, and now I feel like I didn't accomplish much... But, hey! I beat #13 and #14!

Yep. The best Far Cry - which is saying something considering how good the whole series is. Roll on Primal (which looks like Ark).

Amazing game, should really be higher

84Dark Souls

150? This is my #1 game of all time it should be at least top 100 if not top 50. Just because it is not popular does not mean it's not good. Many people are turned off by it because they think it is too hard, but once you get into it and immerse yourself you will realize it is one of the best games of all time. I was like you once. My cousin was telling me this is the best game of all time so I bought it for $20 and I couldn't beat the first boss so I put the game down and didn't touch it for months. Then I finally decided to try to play it for real and now I have probably played it for more than 1000 hours and beat it with many different characters and gotten to new game +5 with one character.

An RPG with a fresh design and decayed world. I envy people who get to play this game for the first time.

While dark souls is at 124, minecraft is number 3...

Amazing game. Sad its not rated higher.

85Pac-Man

This game is (in my own perspective and hands down) one of the best arcade game to hit the 80's gaming industry. You play as Pac Man while eating the dots, and avoiding ghosts. If you eat all of the dots, you'll advance to the next stage for the next stages after the first increasing in difficulty. However, only the most insane people can get up to level 256 (the split screen glitch level), so this game is considered one of the most influential video games to have an impact on the gaming industry in the 80's and the game is still playable and a masterpiece to this day - Bunearylove75

I wasn't born when this game was made in fact quite a while later but this is by far the best game ever. Just look at the simplicity of this game its almost as if its the chess of the video game generation. I could see myself playing this game for years to come.

When I can still play a game at an arcade or at home or on my phone several decades after it was first released, that equals best game ever. Most of the games ranked above this one will come and go, but 30 years from now kids will still be playing Pac-Man.

I love this game and great in the arcade

86Roblox

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!

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!

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

I love this game so much

87Deus Ex

Deus Ex is a hard game to get into in the Modern Age, no doubt. But if you push past the Older aspects, you'll be absorbed into a world where your decisions really matter and not from some button prompt, from actual gameplay. If you do play it though, don't play it as an FPS. It is more of an RPG and if you run in shooting, you'll end up dying straight away.

One of only a handful of games that I've truly felt immersed within it's digital world; the others being Metroid Prime, Shadow Of The Colossus, Ocarina Of Time and (oddly) Donkey Kong Country (it was the music! ). It doesn't take fancy graphics or even an open world for a game to feel immersive; it takes a perceived notion of freedom and a whole lot of atmosphere. This game's artistic and technical achievements were stunning for it's day.

a fine classic, but very underrated.

the last grand work of ion storm.

really addictive and active gameplay.

what should a geek wants more?

Despite being 16 year old this is one of the best game ever made among my top 5 at least. A fantastic written game, with good choices, a brilliant story, great atmosphere, great characters, good setting and fantastic hybrid between stealth, fps, and rpg. Must play

88Half-Life

This is, in short, my favorite video game of all time. I know the phrase gets thrown around a lot, but Half-Life was one of the first computer games I played and it's still my favorite. It's not perfect by any means, but it put Valve on the map and was a milestone for first person shooters. This game was way ahead of its time, and spawned many mods that became full-fledged franchises, such as Day of Defeat and Counter-Strike.

I simply don't understand why Half-Life 2 is so much higher on the list than the original game. They're both incredible, and deserve the same amount of respect. Valve knew what they were doing when they entered the video game industry, and their Half-Life series remains one of the most well-crafted franchises on the market.

The mods ALONE for this game make it #1 for me. Counter Strike? Team Fortress Classic? Day of Defeat? Natural Selection? Firearms? Digital Paintball? Just some of the awesome mods made possibly BY THIS GAME.

I remember playing it when it had just came out, the interactive cut scenes were so novel and creative for the time - the train ride in the beginning and the AI behavior of the human enemies and everything else. It was immersive and the headcrabs were actually a bit scary

I would rate Half-Life as the Best Video Game Ever.

Compared to our time, terrible graphics; but in my eyes graphics don't complete the game, I feel that this gave valve a head start into a company that produces many games to come.

Easily best game, look at any professional game rater and it will be top 5.It is so stupid its at 91.

89Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

As a major fan-boy of the Metal Gear Series, I was disappointed to see this title so low on the list. I understand why people put Metal Gear higher up, but starting an amazing series doesn't make it the best in the series. As an American, I got shafted on the Metal Gear game, so I can't honestly vote for that with a clear conscious.. But this game is a masterpiece. The visuals are amazing, the game play mechanics are smooth, and the story wraps everything so nicely. It's always going to be one of me favorite games of all time. - Strokavich

Please you can't trust the internet all the time. I stuck with thinking if this is better than halo 3 or not just say what you think, I'll count the votes and whoever has more will win. yell out your own opinion

This game is AWESOME, but my CD is broken and when the 2nd ending starts, there is like a CD icon on the top left of the T.V. , if anyone knows how to fix this, please reply to this comment

Hands down the best story telling and visuals of the last 20 years. How is Halo anything above this. Halo is so shallow and single minded

90God of War

The Gods of Olymus may have abandones Kratos, but not this game! - moonflash

38?! Is it possible that the game with the best graphics of all time is top 38? Impossible! Kratos, your revenge ends! Kill all the people who didn't voted for you!

The most baddas game ever very good plot awesome combat and great character make this game and franchise best ever

I think it should be God of War, not God of War, though it's a good game

93Undertale

This game doesn't deserve to be top 5, but definitely top 10. It isn't one of those nostalgia-preying indie piles of crap, but it's a simple-looking game with a deeper meaning.

Personally, I feel as if it's a game with something for everybody. The characters are deep, and killing them is unthinkable to most. Instead, it encourages you to find other ways to defeat them through pacifism, pleasing the story fans. It's got horror, and quite a bit of it in the form of the Amalgamates and Omega Flowey, making it very interesting and appealing to fans of horror. It even has comedy and a bright atmosphere that most children would love, and they wouldn't even think about the other parts of the story. It's a true kids-to-adults game, having none of the gore and innapropriate stuff, being bright and bubbly, but still sad and deep enough that older crowds are drawn in.

One of the things I can't get over with this game is the fact that it was hand-designed by one guy- the musical ...more

Come on guys! This game deserves better than 93! I've only played like 20 minutes of ocorina of time but I'm willing to take people's word that it deserves the number 1 spot. THIS GAME DESERVES NUMBER 2! It is my all time favorite video game that I've ever played! (except mabye it's tied with minecraft, I'm not sure) The characters and characters development is so well done, the story is really really good, the gameplay always feels fresh and is really fun, the choice weather to attack or spare your enemies is not only genius, but it changes the way you think about the characters and your actions in the game, and the soundtrack, MY GOD THE SOUNDTRACK IS AMAZING! This is a perfect game if I've ever seen one! The only bad thing I can say about this game is the fan base, but as long as you ignore that, you'll have an amazing experience. Now let's work to get this game higher on the list because it deserves it.

You know why I hate other gamers? They don't know what's good. This game has the most amazing thing you could want. You well be working on the character voices for a month, humming the songs in the middle of work, thinking about actually giving to bake sales because of spiders, and we'll get thinking about things. This game is not a game for internet trolls, this game is for people who are smart, compassionate, abservent, and funny. Is that not enough? But if I say one thing about the story, it well ruin it! I'll tell you two words: Goat Mom

Great game. Very iconic and the boss fights are just amazing. This is probably the best indie game out there. - ShadowKnight

94Mass 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.

96The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

THIS IS THE BEST ZELDA EVER! I LOVE THIS GAME I GOT IT A FEW MONTHS AGO IT IS AWESOME SO AMAZING ONE OF THE COOLEST GAMES I. EVER!
PLAYYED!

This is my 4th favorite game of ALL TIME! That is saying a lot if it makes my list. I love Legend of Zelda so much, and this is my favorite game for the series! I only finished it 6 weeks ago, and I miss it so much! And at the end of this masterpiece knew I would miss it, so just before beating Demise to the pulp, ran round Skyloft one more time, revisited the three dragons (What happened to Din? ) while of course prancing through the 3 worlds, as well as flying through the Thunder Head once more (Never has riding Levias been so enchanting and awesome) and never has stabbing a Final Boss been so satisfying. This beautiful game deserves to be in the Top 15 - 30! I LOVE IT!

Skyward Sword is right up there with Ocarina of Time as my favorite game of all time. Vote for it. It is a fabulous game.

Are you kidding me 97th place come on

97Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

This is the best game in the whole entire WORLD! No doubt about it!

*Goes Back to playing Grand theft auto and running away from polices. *

It is the best game I have ever played.It deserves a place in the top 10

Beat Grand Theft Auto game love it

98Need for Speed Most Wanted

BEST racing game, career mode is awesome if you play it once you will force to play it again, I have played it many times and always enjoyed

NO WAY by far Need For Speed Hot Pursuit 2 is best in the series but still being second isn't all that bad

Best racing game I've played. Not only is it extremely fun to play, but it has some of the best graphics!

I played it 4 times

99Mario Kart Wii

This is my best game ever. I don't know why this game got (worst Mario kart) on some websites well, I think this is the best. Every thing is great about this game is great.

Super Mario 64 is the best video game ever besides all other N64 Mario games.

Well, it was obvious this game had no chance at first place if it was competing against ocarina of time. But, this game is so awesome, easily my favorite Mario kart game. I remember when it first came out and it was all people would talk about in school. We came up with the conlusion that the off roader is the best vehicle and of course yoshi is the best character. This game will always be one of my favorites.

This game is way off the charts above the roof - Kingjon15

It's a shame that Nintendo stopped Wifi services. That's the main reason why I loved this game in the first place.

100Pokemon Gold

Pokemon Gold Version is on of the best Pokemon and one of the best video games ever it was even so good that Nintendo remade for the Nintendo DS, and they somehow made it even better! So I honestly don't know why more people haven't voted for it, it is amazing!
