Best Video Game Levels of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Spirit Temple - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

In my opinion this is the best and hardest level in any game.

2 Chapter 7: A Star Spirit on Ice - Paper Mario
3 Witchyworld - Banjo-Tooie
4 Phendrana Drifts - Metroid Prime
5 Good Egg Galaxy - Super Mario Galaxy
6 Snowpeak Ruins - The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
7 The Village - Resident Evil 4
8 Moon Cave - Okami

Best part of the Level is providesthat imps are stupid

9 Green Hill Zone - Sonic the Hedgehog

It's a clever name for a level like this.

10 Eye of the Storm - Medal of Honor: Frontline

This is the level where you infiltrate a heavily fortified shipyard to sabotage many trucks and u-boats. - jezza0

The Contenders

11 The Milkman Conspiracy - Psychonauts

Since Black Velvetopia or Waterloo World isn't on the list, this has to be it. It is a very good level, one of the greatest. Psychonauts is one of my top 3 games of all time, the other two being Nier:Automata and Dark Souls, and part of that reason are the levels Black Velvetopia, Waterloo World and The Milkman Conspiracy.

12 Stone Tower Temple - The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's Mask


Why don't you just FILP THE WHOLE TEMPLE UPSIDE DOWN! - Lord28

13 The Big Score (Obvious Approach) - GTA V

You get more money this way than the subtle approach since you don't need to bribe off the guards. The Best crew to have is Karim Denz driving the train, Taliana Martinez flying the helicopter, Norm Richards with Michael De Santa and Daryl Johns (if you used him during The Beureu Raid) with Franklin Clinton.

14 The Golden Lion - Medal of Honor: Frontline

Such a jolly level. This is where you had to sabotage German cars and trucks to help you infiltrate a pub crawling with rowdy German soldiers. You had to use a disguise and persuade the piano player to start up a lively drinking song to distract security. It was like the Oom Pah Pah number from Oliver!

15 Suicide Mission - Mass Effect 2
16 The Studio Secretary Murder - LA Noire
17 A Walk in Elysian Fields - L.A. Noire
18 Buttville - Earthworm Jim

The world-famous "Use Your Head" meme AND the Queen's lair itself, both rolled into one level. Simply epic (and exceedingly tough to get through on Difficult without dying).

19 True Laboratory - Undertale
20 We don't go to Ravenholm - Half Life 2

Scary as hell, but rewarding. Such a smart level! - yoshaholic

21 It's War! - Conker's Bad Fur Day
22 Ribbon Road - Mario Kart 8
23 Cosmic Cove Galaxy - Super Mario Galaxy 2
24 Magicant - Radiation's Halloween Hack
25 Hell (Blood Stained Sanctuary) - Cave Story
26 City 17 - Half-Life 2
27 Port Town Aero Dive - Super Smash Bros. Brawl

It is one of the worst stages

28 Forest Temple - The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time
29 Tealand - Henry Hatsworth in the Puzzling Adventure
30 Level 5 - Earthworm Jim
31 Mount Wario - Mario Kart 8
32 Welcome to Rapture - BioShock

Sets the creepy tone for the rest of the game well,This is where you get the Electro Bolt Plasmid.Just remember:No gods or kings.Only man. - Lord28

33 Mechonis Field - Xenoblade Chronicles
34 Big Blue - Mario Kart 8
35 Wario Colosseum - Mario Kart: Double Dash!!
36 Rainbow Road - Mario Kart 8
37 Rainbow Road - Mario Kart Wii
38 DK Island - Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
39 World 1-1 - Super Mario Bros.

This is the most popular and influential level ever, I like so much this level.

40 Brinstar - Super Metroid

Honestly has even better music than most Donkey Kong Country levels - xandermartin98

41 Sunset Snake Eyes - Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus
42 Murphy's Law - Mafia II
43 Gloomy Manor - Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
44 Political Realities in Armadillo - Red Dead Redemption
45 Operation Rapunzel - Medal of Honor: Frontline
46 Shadow Moses - Metal Gear Solid 4

Finding the ghost, flashbacks, its just amazing

47 The Gas Man - L.A. Noire
48 Anybody Can Buy Me a Drink - Max Payne 3
49 Civilization at Any Price - Red Dead Redemption
50 What The Heck? - Earthworm Jim
