Top 10 Best Video Game Series of All Time

The Top Ten
1 The Legend of Zelda

Zelda is the best game that I have ever played my favorites are botw and Majorias mask. The whole story timeline game play and music are all just what makes the best video game franchise in the world!

This was the best video game series 25 years ago and will still stay the best video game series 100 years from now. It has made records and has changed the video game industry for good. I love the gameplay, the depth of the story, the characters, Hyrule, I mean what's not to love? It's that good that even Robin Williams named his daughter after it. I don't see any one calling their child Call of Duty. The best thing about Zelda games is that there's a Zelda game for every person of every age. From catching fairies before you battle bosses to getting the Master Sword every thing you do in the land of Hyrule seems to be satisfying. If you haven't played this game I definitely recommend it.

Well, I posted a few weeks ago, but today I decided that I should continue with my ranting. Last time, I elaborated on the graphics of this extraordinary series, but that was just the tip of the iceberg. This time I will dig in deeper, and look at the items, that set Zelda apart from other series.

If you look at other games of any genre, items are a huge part of the game. However, these crucial parts of the experience are not utilized to their fullest. In many major RPGs, for example, items and spells are used in exactly the same way, but with different stats the only thing separating them. In shooters, items are all a bit different, but all that they do is kill people in different ways.

In The Legend of Zelda, all of the items you find are unique. With a hookshot, you can swing to far away cliffs, and obtain far away items. With a bow, you can hit far-off targets, burn things, freeze things, and much more. Look up "Zelda Items" in a search engine, and you will find that ...more

I think the other comments say it all. Everyone that complains about Zelda and Mario not being in our generation, well it says top ten video game series not of this generation. AC is the only series to start/get big after '04/05 maybe that could potentially continue for 25 years.

Zelda and Pokemon will forever stay in my heart, as they gave me my first introduction to video games, and I have not tired of them since. The only reason I vote for Zelda over Pokemon is because I don't think anything in gaming compares to finally defeating a boss you had been trying to defeat for hours.

Legend of Zelda has it's own special place in my heart.

2 Super Mario Bros.

Mario is my favourite video game franchise of all time. It's childhood the game. The games are AMAZING times well spent unlike a certain blue hedgehog *cough* *cough*
Make this number 1. Super Mario number 1!

Why isn't this no. 1? Mario is the series that defines Nintendo. It brought a revolution to platformers, and to 3D adventures. Who wouldn't like going into pipes that warp you to places? Who wouldn't like defeating an army of dinosaur-like tortoises and potato-heads to save their "special one"? And who wouldn't like exploring the galaxies to collect power stars to travel to the centre of the universe? Super Mario Bros., Bros. 3, World, Land, 64, Kart, Sunshine, Galaxy, Mario Party and New Super Mario Bros. Wii are some of the greatest games of all time. What's left? It's better than Zelda!

Super mario bros. Started video games this should be number 1! Super mario bros have good graphics, best games in the world, adorable characters and is 94% of people's childhoods. Every year they get better and better games. This is my favorite game franchise. I will not stand this crazy stuff 2nd place. Disappointed and sad. PEOPLE WE NEED TO MAKE THIS NUMBER ONE!

As much as I love Zelda, Pokemon, Smash Bros, Kirby, etc.. Mario will always be the best. Without Mario, 99% of the series in this list would not exist. Mario got me into video games in the first games in the first place and continues to keep me playing. He wears many hats, from plumber to doctor to olympian to referee to teacher. Although Zelda will have the top spot for some time, Mario, I think, will always be the more fun and diverse of the two.

3 Pokemon

Pokemon has been my favorite game other than Call of Duty for Years. The first game I played was Pokemon Black 1 and it set me off on the whole Pokemon franchise. My second pokemon game was Pokemon Platinum which could have been better but it was still great. Not to mention, my first shiny was on it which was a shiny Ponyta. Then I played Pokemon White 2 which was amazing how it went along with the storyline of Black 1 and I was so surprised and happy it turned out that well. Then I got Pokemon X and it is so far my favorite because it is so good and I love xerneas and Mega Evolution boosted the games coolness way higher. Then Omega Ruby came out and I didn't know what to think about it but it was good but the beginning of the game didn't have much storyline and soon I will be getting Pokemon Sun and Moon.

Although it is the same format for every game across the series, (get your starter, balance gyms, rivals, a big bad team you have to take down, catching legendaires, becoming champion etc) Something about the games are just so good that fans keep coming back. Between the story, battling format, among other things just makes this series so good.

There's a reason that Pokemon games have been made so many of and still sell so very well. Despite the fact that most of the Pokemon series is repeats of previous games, and no unique ideas really pass through other than the creation of new Pokemon, the feelings that can come from playing one of these games are like no other. By the way, my Magikarp will wreck your Persian. 6v6 me bruh. Magikarp Flail sweep for the win.

It has the most interactive and loveable world, it's like being in this world as I play. It's also one of the most interesting concepts I've ever seen. Sure there are more monster training games, but Pokemon makes it feel more alive.

4 Super Smash Bros.

All the games in this series are just so entertaining to watch and play, 64 really set a good standard and good a lot of potential, Melee was just a competitive masterpiece, but not as perfect casually, Brawl's Subspace Emissary is a masterpiece, with good gameplay but struggles competitively, but has really good casual gameplay. Smash 4 continued with engaging gameplay with good extra modes, and Ultimate is in my opinion, the best overall with extremely good casual gameplay, and extremely good competitive gameplay, along with super good side modes, overall a great series that almost anyone can enjoy.

If you combine the Kirby, Mario, Zelda, and many other video game series, you get Super Smash Bros. Fun fighter game for the whole family and they can choose their favorite Nintendo characters! How fun can it even get? If a Smash game came out for the Nintendo SWITCH, that would actually be amazing! They would add new characters and maps or bring back old characters and maps! They haven't announced it yet, but if they DID say it's going to be released, there's going to be more fans of this popular fighting game.

This is one of the most entertaining games ever, it is the perfect game for you and your friends to play, there are is a good variety of characters to choose from, and really cool maps with their own setup. It really is an amazing franchise.

Great game, you have so many possibilities to play this game. So many different game modes and the way each and every character has their own fighting style is super cool.

5 Grand Theft Auto

It is Inappropriate for Children to play, it is 13+ not under 10, who even wanted to play that game while too young will get parental controls.

The ability to travel ANYWHERE you want, carry a buttload of weapons, take any vehicle from a Bike, exotic sportscar to a Military Jet... and graphics only Rockstar can excel at its time... and the Latest Grand Theft Auto V making sales of over $1 Billion dollars in its first week... apart with San Andreas, Vice City, etc. making the Top 5 on many Greatest Game of all time lists (ex. IGN)... Best Series in Video Game History

Probably one of the best series there Grand Theft Auto is one of realistic

But in the end Grand Theft Auto>sonic come at me.

I have no idea how this is 3rd last this game has revolutionized the world of gaming with its "open world" concept and it should be much closer to 1st.

6 Assassin's Creed

Where to begin? Some people complain that the gameplay has gotten boring but the again that is always only on side of this gaming series and the true gem of Assassin's Creed is the story and what it allows us to do. Running around in history killing of actual historical figures, while performing parkour on buildings and stealthy or brutally taking down your foes. This is something amazing that sets this gaming series apart from most others out there and makes it unique, I will always treasure this series.

By far one of the most unique big franchises out there. I can think of no one else who does what AC does; immerse you in a historical open world with the core gameplay consisting of sword fighting, stealth and parkour. And its surprising how well all of these elements work together.

Video games for me are about experiencing things that would be otherwise impossible in the real world. AC nails that for me. It allows me to explore cultures, cities and experience unique atmospheres that once did, but no longer exist. I can feel the great sense of freedom that I love as I fly across rooftops, admiring the beautiful city below and beyond. And I can solve problems and feel achievement through stealth, and find satisfaction and awesomeness through sword fighting, which I find to be far less monotonous than shooting.

I'm not interested in repetitive and aimless gunfights (granted, tactical shooters unlike Call of Duty can be very exciting), or doing nothing but watching ...more

The Assassin's Creed series is simply amazing! The story in these games is cool and interesting unlike most other games, the gameplay is fun and satisfying and the open worlds look gorgeous and there is always so much to explore and do. It is one of the most unique and immersive franchises out there without a doubt and it will always have a special place in my heart.

The story, setting and characters are so great that I can't even explain it. This series has the greatest story of all the video games there is, except Halo. I have the games in this series and I love every one of them. All of them have great endings. The multiplayer is not as good as the story but still its good.

7 Final Fantasy

Not only are the stories great, but the heroes, villains, and gameplay are too. Each game is different from the last in terms of environment and plot line, with the exception of X and XI, so everyone can find something they love about this amazing series.

The amazing stories and characters that have appeared in this series over the years need to be remembered. They are all part of the greatest video game series ever to appear in this world and Midgar.

The Final Fantasy series have the best storylines in all of gaming history. It just unbelivable how well written it is. This deserves to be number 1!

For the love of God do you even know about games? This game must be in top 3. Nothing less.

8 Metal Gear Solid

The only reason why this isn't top 1 is because most voters here only played the newer game series. Call of duty, for example. They don't what the Metal Gear Series is capable of. Friends dying in front of you, crushed by a gigantic robot t-rex, an old friend battling cancer, a sister who died because of a vampire psychopath, a mentor got killed by her own student, a man-made spy that is near death because of rapid aging but still able to save the world and finally killed his own brother. Sometimes, it's not about the gameplay that makes a game better, but the drama and the storyline that can be talked about for almost forever.

Just the storyline alone should put this game in the top 3 or 4. It's my all-time personal favorite, so it would be my #1 choice. Hideo Kojima is an absolute genius and I salute him not only for making great games, but storylines and characters you can easily get emotionally attached to. His games are like movies. They keep me at the edge of my seat and keep me PRAYING that he'll make just one more. The replay value of these games is TREMENDOUS. They are always chalk full of easter eggs and side stories. MGS revolutionized stealth gameplay and is in a league of its own. I believe that if anyone plays a game from this series, it will be in their top 5 favorites easily.

Never played anything quite like it. The stories are incredibly deep and touch upon a lot of issues that concern people all around the world and probably for all time, such as war, family, friendship, loyalty, grief, love, hate, courage, leaders and their symbols and what to pass on to future generations and which forces shape them. On top of that all games come with amazing gameplay that for the most part has aged well and gives you a lot of options and freedom (increasingly with each new game). Plus the games burst with life and character and have so many creative ideas that challange you even outside the confides of the video game world and there is such a huge attention to detail... I could go on forever. Hideo Kojima's Metal Gear Solid is an almost flawless masterpiece and even the sometimes excessive cutscenes cannot temper with an experience, that overall has touched me more than any other video game.

Winding and astounding story that covers so much ground and is so brilliant in its design that it takes literally years to even come close to understanding it, incredible characters with amazing abilities, weapons and backgrounds, fantastic and inspirational stealth, but also action gameplay. Music and graphics of the gods, and an atmosphere that makes you genuinely care so much about the characters that you can't possibly stop after one. This series is definitely the ultimate.

9 Uncharted

This game is much better than most games in the top ten Call of Duty deserves to be in the bottom 50. Yeah I know allot of people are going to say look at the sales and pre-order numbers. There only really high because allot of gamer's are really stupid in the games they buy they love nothing more than a non-original story, gameplay that isn't evolving, multiplayer that's the same every year and developers and publishers that only give a crap about the money. These facts are undeniably true and some gamers can't take the the time to appreciate the love and care put into games like the story in mass effect, the adventure in skyrim, the combat depth in god of war and the explosive action in uncharted. Basiclly what I'm saying is that gamers these days are becoming so 1 dimensional and that they need to expand there horizon of games they play.

This deserves to be number one, hands down. Nathan Drake gives us a swaggering, laid back protagonist that can crack small jokes to lighten the mood in any setting. This is a new perspective into the action-adventure genre that has the perfect balance between action sequences and heart wrenching parkour/survival parts that will leave you on the edge of your seat. Added on to this masterpiece are the puzzles left for you the gamer to solve. Choosing wrong will lead in failure, but when you figure it out, there is always more action to make up for all the time spent on figuring out the puzzle. Uncharted 3 gives us another point of view as the young Nathan Drake, starting his life of thievery. Seeing Nathan growing up gives us another reason to cheer him on. Uncharted 2 is incredible, with intense sequences of everything a gamer wants. They all come together in the Nathan Drake Collection, a jaw-dropping remastered edition of all the games in the series. Nathan Drake will most likely ...more

Again, I am not a PlayStation fanboy. But this series is just plain awesome. Nathan Drake is one of the best protagonists to exist and the story in every single game of the franchise is likable. This series is a masterpiece as said by someone in the comments and stands out. Likable and great, it is the one of the best franchises. Also, Nintendo and Xbox players, I recommend you to play one of the games, if anyone whom you know owns it, and then you'll get to know what we call a Video Game.

Anyone who loves slaying a huge numbers of bad guys, hanging over ledges and some parkour, going on an adventure to find an ancient relic or a lost city and doesn't like dialogues with M rated words, then this is the game series for you! Filled with cinematic cutscenes, long story line, decent AI and interesting characters, this PlayStation exclusive has never failed to disappoint and I personally think every gamer, casual or hardcore, should try one of this. But this game isn't really much in the multiplayer category.

10 The Elder Scrolls

Put it this way: When you've got a game series that gets things so right the first time that all you have to do to make a sequel is improve the graphics and update the game mechanics a little, you've got something special. Every Elder Scrolls game in the series has consistently trounced its competition to the point that the Elder Scrolls series has become the definitive RPG series of late. I'm surprised this isn't higher on the list!

My favorite game Morrowind is in this series and I didn't vote for it why'S that because I can't vote for it just because of Skyrim's graphics. Well I'm here to spill the truth every Elder Scrolls main game is awesome so play every damn game and vote once you have played one that isn't Skyrim.

This brilliant piece of perfection offers Very rich lore, great character creation and customization, freedom to do whatever you want, hours of adventure and exploration, always sth new waiting in the corner to be discovered and pretty much every thing one could possibly expect from an RPG. Should be higher on this list.

This is such a clear choice to me. Excluding the early titles (daggerfall/arena) there has not been a poor title. Every single one of TES games has pushed the envelope of what we expect from an RPG. I only ever liked one Zelda game, the first one, Mario has forever been a 2D platformer (even when he went 3D he still felt like yesteryear's platformer), and I don't think I've ever spent more than 30hrs on any AC game. Every AC/Zelda/Mario game is cookie cutter, they all feel the same. Play Morrowind and then play Skyrim and tell me how similar they are to you. My point is that Bethesda is a company who's body of work screams quality over quantity, while this list appears to (inaccurately) be ranking the other way.

The Contenders
11 Halo

Zelda above this I get it. Zelda is just the wet dream of any gamer. But Mario, Grand Theft Auto, Pokemon? I mean yeah they are GREAT games but Halo is fantastic, majestic, perfect, and every word that has a good connotation that exists. There was a time where I just wanted to go to my friends' house when I was in high school to play Halo. I no longer cared of my friends, don't misunderstand me it's not that I didn't care about them, but the game got me subconsciously in a way that I was totally hypnotized by it. I'm sure many can relate to what I'm saying. When Halo 2 and 3 came, those were some really crazy ass times. There will never be days as good as those and you know it. I think I even had dreams about Halo back then, in some way, I still do.

Girls Locker Room: Words.
Boys Locker Room: Halo Theme Song.
In all seriousness though, Halo is one of the few First Person Shooter franchises that stands out from the rest. The only other game franchise I would consider as being more influential would be Doom. Every single Halo game is in the same, connected universe and events in one affect another. The difficulty is on point (except Halo 2's) and the game play has inspired nearly every single FPS that came after it. The days of 3 and Reach were the golden days of online play, custom games and forge helped Halo stand out, and every single Halo gun is unique and iconic to the Halo franchise. It has been going through a bit of falteration, but every game franchise hits it at one point. With Reach on PC being a huge hit and Halo: Infinite being on the way (albeit with no gameplay whatsoever), here's hoping Halo can take the top spot once again.

Simply one of the greatest series released. Halo revolutionised the FPS genre, being the front-runner in things such as vehicle usage, abilities and, perhaps most importantly, *interesting AI*! The cowardly Grunts, the upright Elites and the spunky Marines, along with other things, all come together to make a truly unforgettable experience. A sort of dry humour runs through the series, playing off military stereotypes, never failing to make me grin. The multiplayer is phenomenal, with a brilliant community. Halo alone is worth picking up an Xbox console for. The replay value is amazing: after all these years, I can still pick up and play Halo: Combat Evolved and genuinely enjoy it, something very few FPS games can boast: why do most series (like Call of Duty, which is also great) have to dish out games year after year to keep fans interested. While you can not compare FPS with, say, RPG or RTS, in my mind, Halo will always be one of the best series among all games.

Halo is by far the greatest. It has great graphics, a great story line, and it is pure fun. Sure it hasn't been around forever, but that is why it should be number one. It is the number one game series of THIS generation. Zelda and Mario shouldn't count. Sure they are still making games, but they aren't new. Both have been around for years. Halo should be number one.

12 Sonic

I have only played a few sonic games but loved them! I have been a Sonic fan for 2 years ever since the first movie came out. I haven't played other series, but I don't care. Sonic has my favorite gameplay. Sonic's the best!

Sonic is a series sold for its protagonist and world. I can honestly say that Sonic has no games that feel perfect- there are those that come close, sure; SA2 and Generations are both fantastic games but what really makes those two great?

Three things. The characters (which are perfectly voice acted in both games and have their characters perfectly designed), the music (which is some of the best in the series) and the content (both games have a large amount of post game content in the form of level missions).

If you are reading this Sega, work on THESE. The Sonic fanbase is extremely forgiving of poorer graphics, dodgy stories and terrible cutscenes, but these will make or break a game for most Sonic fans.

Sonic should be in 2nd or 3rd because mario 1st and idc whos second ( not Zelda tho. I hate zelda and I know a lot agree zeldas the worst) and sonics not good enough to be 2nd so 3rd. Sonic was everyone's favorite game in the old days right beside mario and helped gaming become what it is now just like mario so vote for mario and Sonic! Sonic can't be 12th it's just not right.

Sonic is actually one of the best video game series of all time. Sonic try's something new each game while Mario usually uses the same old tactics while trying something new not to often. In fact, at one point Sonic was better then Mario. Sonic started the 16 bit era and has held gaming up along with other series. Sonic is very special to many people including me and should be higher on this list.

13 Mass Effect

Truly the best game series I have ever played (with maybe the elder scrolls in contention). The story is fantastic, throwing you into the mix of aliens, planets, new governments, and a whole universe. With all this you still feel like you belong and you knowing exactly what is happening without any seamless effort is a great achievement in gaming.

Also the choice that is on offer was tremendous and thought provoking and really made the game you were playing was unique to you. And the true brilliance is that every decision was carried on through the series.

The tactics and gameplay of the game were excellent and really refreshing from the bog standard of Call of Duty.

I for one did not mind the ending after they changed it, and found that it was a good way to end the game and my commander Shepard story.

All in all I think that this game serious should really be at the top or close to it, and far higher then just number 10.

Forget what people say about the conclusion of the series. Even that ending cannot diminish the epic and brilliant journey that was Mass Effect 1-3. From the humble beginnings as a rogue spectre to the final defense against the greatest threat to the galaxy; this game series is a masterpiece. So much detail was put into this series. Exceptionally well written characters, exciting combat, irresistible dialogue, and of course, decisions that matter. No game series has been ever been this personal to the player. It is a choose your own adventure that carries over throughout 3 phenomenal games each lasting over 25 hours.

From the moment I stepped into the world of Mass Effect, I realized I had happened upon video gaming nirvana in December of 2013.

Mass Effect Re-Defined, and revolutionized video gaming by putting the power into the players hands, thrusting players - new and old to the series - into stunning space battles, dramatic and lively plot lines, and facing enemies as ferocious as they are creative and brilliant.

Mass Effect Boasts the most amazing story line I've played to date. Which is a well deserved title considering I own (and have played) over 75+ titles on Xbox360 and PS3.

As a trilogy, there is no better than this series. The gameplay is exceptionally good, the characters feel real, the side quests are great and most importantly the story is near perfect. Except the ending of 3. I really don't get how people can look at Zelda or Mario and say they have "great story" and "amazing gameplay." When you really get down to it, Zelda is not a difficult series and almost always results in mashing the b button to kill something. Not to mention it's extremely linear and predictable. Mario is even more so. Mass effect forces you to make tactical decisions on the battlefield to progress. You can choose any method you want, whether it includes biotic powers, explosions, aoe, sniping at range or getting on the thick of it. Every strategy has its pros and cons that you need to be aware of when you execute them. The out of combat choices you make are also amazing and can carry dire consequences and rewards. The series even carries your choices through each game! No ...more

14 Metroid

Metroid is one of the greatest game franchises EVER. Why isn't it among the top ten? It's a mystery. Who wouldn't like traveling the cosmos in great adventures, exterminating dangerous species, fighting evil and putting end to wars in a way few have rivaled. All the games are thrilling from the start as soon as you land on the surface of a planet/station. "Good luck with the adventures! Explore the way yourself!

This game series defined my childhood. Super Metroid, Metroid Fusion, Other M, and Metroid Prime were complete masterpieces. The only game that wasn't truly captivating and incredible was Metroid Prime Pinball, but come on. It's a pinball game. I easily rank this as my personal number 1.

Yes! Samus was an outstanding hero, even though Zero Suit Samus herself was much more badass, and Ridley is my favorite nintendo villain, along with King dedede.

Metroid is the most overrated The fans think Metroid can match up to the likes of good games. Play some actual games like Call of Duty, Halo, Mario, or Zelda.

15 Kingdom Hearts

Ah it's all been said already... This series started out as what some would call a fluke. It was a combination that most people would never had guessed could work. On one hand, Final Fantasy, a game that focuses on telling intricate and (sometimes) messed up stories (FFVII). On the other hand, the Disney series, a happy go lucky series of feel-good movies that are aimed at kids. It should have been a boring game... But it wasn't.

With each game polishing the fighting style more and more, one of the game's strongest point, the gameplay appeals to button mashers as well as tacticians. The game features an intricate story that spans over many games, each game giving away only a piece of the puzzle, making for one of the longest and most immersive stories ever told in a game.

And not to forget all the Disney worlds that the game offers, each reliving the old movies in a nostalgic way, coupling it with a more mature story. And while the game does not have very realistic ...more

This series is magical, beautiful, and creative. It combines newer and earlier stuff to create something more powerful. I enjoy them so much, I feel like I'm on an a timeless adventure. Everything about it is great and it has been my favorite video game series since the beginning. Good music, cool animation, nice gameplay, and really interesting story. I don't find it underrated because it's so popular. Can't wait for the last one, KH3!

My favorite video games ever! I loved them growing up since number one came out. Everything about them is incredibly interesting. With the cutscenes and characters, they make you feel like you're part of the adventure. They share a great story, gameplay, music, and graphics all at once. Just a beautiful, timeless, creative series. I like it and look forward to the last one, Kingdom Hearts 3.

My favorite video games. I loved them growing up since number one came out. They're so fun and everything about them is always incredibly interesting. Creative and beautiful. With the cutscenes and characters, it feels like you're part of the adventure. They have a great story, graphics, gameplay, and music. Great series and I look forward to the last one, Kingdom Hearts 3.

16 Kirby

Honestly, it's insane how consistent in quality this franchise has been over its THIRTY YEAR history. Even some of the games that are the weakest of the bunch really aren't that bad. You have to admit that's very impressive for a game series, especially if it's been going on for 30 years at this point. The games are very fun and are definitely replayable due to the many copy abilities and they always try to change it up and most of the time they can make things interesting. Also Kirby is cute so bonus points.

Kirby is cute. All the Kirby games are awesome except for Kirby epic yarn on the Wii. I wasted 50 dollars on that Kirby epic yarn. The bosses were not challenging enough and they made king dedede annoying and it caused my Wii to broke. I decided not to play Kirby till triple deluxe for 3ds came out. I realized my friends loved it, and it had Kirby fighters too so I got it and it was so good and when Star allies came out it was so cool. And clash royale is fun too, it's like Kirby fighters but graphics have good quality and you could play with people online. Anyways, Kirby should be top 10.

I cannot believe this is at 79. In my opinion, Call of Duty is not very fun. It's repetitive and boring. The point of a video game is to make the player feel like they are in a non-reality world and Kirby does a fine job of that. No offense, but I am simply disgusted. I know that this website is opinion based, but at least try to be non-bias. Just saying'.

Kirby. Kirby. Kirby was my favorite video game in the whole entire universe of gaming. No matter what, nothing will stop me from loving Kirby. Even a giant meteor/asteroid coming to destroy Earth won't stop me from ever loving Kirby.

17 Bioshock

The Bioshock series of games is absolutely amazing, the stories are fantastic and the graphics make it worthwhile. Bioshock Infinite definitely could make this top my list.

Bioshock is constant in how well they make their story lines. Every game is a master piece.

One of my favorite games of all time and yes even infinite...such an underrated game!

Deserves A higher spot, Great gameplay and story; what more can you ask for?

18 Mortal Kombat

The Mortal Kombat games are EXCELLENT! I can't believe it's not in the top 10, twenty at least! It has a complex story line for each individual character. Amazing graphics (once you get to the newer releases) and an all time classic.

Way too bloody and kids are playing it. Also, I have nightmares after watching the trailer of Mortal Kombat 11.

What?! The Assassin's Creed series on the 5th spot and Arkham series on the 20th spot? It's so wrong!

Love this, got 3 of them already! Can't wait for Mortal Kombat 11!

19 Fire Emblem

When I first played Fire Emblem, I was expecting a boring, unoriginal fantasy RPG that doesn't try anything new. Instead, I got an incredibly heartbreaking story with fun characters each with their own personalities and aspirations. Nothing hurts more when a trusted fighter falls on the battlefield. If you're looking to get into JRPGs, I highly suggest Fire Emblem.

It's absolutely awesome to play and just keeps getting better and better. Tone of replay value in the newer games with difficulty settings and multiple story lines and hilarious support conversations. Not to mention fun story lines and a diverse cast! Definitely one of the best!

Yes, for those who enjoy the tactical side of gaming, it's perfect. And if characters are your best pick, it covers that too. If you are just merely interested in the series, none of the stories disappoint, I say it covers lots of different preferences.

The characters, story, gameplay, music and everything else is great. Fatal flaw is that their expensive. Play these legally if at all possible.

20 Crash Bandicoot

Currently a official Nintendo character. Mr. Bandicoot and his sister move from PlayStation to Nintendo GameCube.

I have almost every game in the series these games are awesome And number 1 in my opinion.

First video game series I ever played, and still one of the best.

21 Mega Man

How are Kirby, Call of Duty and Pokemon above this? Mega Man 2 and 3 are better than every Kirby and Call of Duty game ever.

Mega Man is a total classic! This game is so nostalgic!
This game has revolutionized over the planet including the hero Mega Man!

These are the best games and should stay even in thousands of years from now.

Mega man 9 is the best

22 Silent Hill

I have only ever seen the Playable Teaser for Silent Hill, simply called PT, which got deleted and removed by Kojima. And even just that told me how good the series was.

I've never played a Silent Hill game in my life and even I know this should be in the top 20 at least.

This is clearly the best.

23 Resident Evil

Resident Evil keeps getting better and better. Each game is unforgettable and RE 4 is a perfect game. The creatures, boss battles, and overall awesomeness of this franchise is unsurpassed by any other in the game industry.

Resident Evil! Just saying the name makes your ears ring in fear. The series is what set off the survival horror genre and has been trying to adapt since its debut in 1996. Great characters, enjoyable stories and frightful action.

I have only played four and six, but I grew up watching my siblings playing these, so... yeah, this should be in the top ten, if not the top five. Just saying.

I think RE is the best game series in the series because of the unpredictability and because of the boss variety. I hope the series never dies.

24 Portal

I like how a game that was released to be a spinoff of Half-Life would go on to create one of the most memorable video game franchises of all time. The first game had only two characters, yet it became a phenomenon with its straightforward story, witty dialogue, and unique puzzle-solving mechanics, and the second game only improved on all these aspects. It's a shame Valve can't count to 3 because I want a third game so bad.

Amazing humor, amazing graphics (in 2, 1 had interesting graphics near the end, though), amazing story (although I wish it used its full potential), and amazing horror. Definitely the best series ever. Not to mention it has the only bearable fanbase.

Portal is one of the most innovative games of the past ten years, and, unlike Call of Duty, requires you to think. Not to mention the amazing humor.

This series is simply amazing. The perfect combination between humor, story and gameplay. I hope Valve releases Portal 3 at some point.

25 God of War

It's got a story, bloody combat, awesome designed levels, characters, bosses, deaths, and environment, epic music, good motive, incredible mythology, killer weapons, and has the most powerful character in gaming, the one, the only, the son of Zeus, the king of the gods... KRATOS!

My childhood and brings many vibes whenever I come back to play it even if its been years. The story is great following the story of Kratos who seeks to destroy all of his enemy's that cross him. I'm super hyped about the new god of war and what it brings to the table.

Why is God of War at the bottom? It's got way better story than Call of Duty, gameplay is awesome, and in my personal opinion it is the best game that I had ever played. I think it should be at least at the top 5.

This series is so good. The story-telling and the characters are well done and the gameplay is incredibly satisfying.
