Best Video Games of All Time

81Legend 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

This is amazing! My favorite SNES game and almost favorite game.

82Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Definitely without a doubt the best assassin's creed game but not the best game on this list

83The 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!?

84Super Smash Brothers - Nintendo 3DS

Sincerely one of the best, if not, the best 3DS game(s) out there! Some games shouldn't be higher than this game.
Ex: FNAF, flappy bird, etc.

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

86Pokemon Black

I think the only Pokemon game above it is Emerald at 38. Other than Emerald, why is there no Pokemon game in a high ranking?!

I loved this took about a week to beat though (not all at once)

It is the latest and is really fun there are lods of pokemon in it and its a massive game.

It should be #2. It is also so low! - Absol

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

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.

89Sonic The Hedgehog 2

Lets face it, Sega's awesome and this game actually became the BESTSELLING SEGA game of all time, since then, Sonic games have gone downhill with all these new characters - TammieRD

A first video game for many gamers, myself included.

This Is A Good Game Besisdes Whats With All The Freakin Tomb Raider - doughnut

Should be number 4.

90Metal 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

91Mario 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.

92Super Mario Sunshine

One of the best Mario games. Great mechanics beautiful landscapes and an amazing sound track. So many levels...but today Call of Duty and grand theft auto are over this. Those games have about as much creativity as a bag of hammers. This game is a master piece

Why didn't Princess Daisy replace Princess Peach's role?! WHY?! Is this most likely because of no Luigi in it?

Very fun and entertaining to play when bored.

This should be in the top 10 one of the best games I have ever played

One of my favorite games of all-time. This game terrific. I recommend it to anyone. Go BATMAN! - FootballDog61

My favorite story out of any game.

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

96The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword


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

97God 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

98Grand 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. *

How in the world can you people vote for San Andreas and not even have Vice City on the list?

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

Beat Grand Theft Auto game love it

99Need 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

100Infamous 2

I think this and it's first edition could be in the top fifty, a good premise and story, plus the graphics make it worthy of this, if you don't have it yet, you should definitely try it out

This game rocks it deserves to be in top ten
