The Top Ten

1 Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
2 Super Mario Sunshine
3 Metroid Prime

Boss game. Loved every minute of it

I can't believe super Mario sunshine is number 15 and this game is number 8,. sunshien should be 2 and this should be 1. This game had the best graphics of the year and it had the ebsst gameplay (Super Mario Sunshine is a close second fro both though. ) This gam ehad the most b@d@$$ boss battles in the series and is the series overall best game get this higher people PLEASE! - HeavyDonkeyKong

7 Battlefield 1942
8 Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance
9 Pokemon Ruby
10 Time Splitters 2

A game you can never get rid of

The Contenders

11 Ratchet & Clank

Great game. Weakest of the series, but still enjoyable and left the area for later games to improve upon. - Garythesnail

12 WWE Smackdown: Shut Your Mouth
13 Rollercoaster Tycoon 2
14 Age of Mythology
15 Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven
16 Medal of Honor: Frontline
17 Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World
18 Mario Party 4
19 Warcraft III

Another top notch real-time-strategy game from Blizzard. Sad to see the franchise 10 years later become an average MMORPG, and using RPG is shaky.

Warcraft 3 is one of the best RTS. Great story, fine gameplay and great with infinite maps/mods from players. DotA, Footman Frenzy, tower defences of all kind and even more! This game deserves much more attention. Revolutionary. Thanks Blizzard for this masterpiece!

22 The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
23 Spider-Man: The Movie
24 Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island
