1 Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
2 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.

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 The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
13 WWE Smackdown: Shut Your Mouth
14 Rollercoaster Tycoon 2
15 Age of Mythology
16 Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven
17 Medal of Honor: Frontline
18 Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World
19 Mario Party 4
20 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 Pokemon Sapphire
23 Spider-Man: The Movie
24 Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island
25 Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem
