21 Fallout 3

This is the best game I have ever played. You can easily spend 200 hours in this game and still not. Done everything there is to do. I love the VATS gameplay, the story is very good. The graphics almost look real! I know this game came out like I don't know like five years ago I think? But it's still very good. In fact, at the time that It came out, it was the biggest video game world ever. I also love the amount of outcomes and paths you can go with in this game, there are so many possible endings, and also, if you have the broken steel add on, then the game never ends. It's like usually you die but if you have the broken steel add on then it's like the explosion made you go into a coma and you wake up 2 weeks later. I mean there are so many different paths, you can choose to go with the enclave, the brotherhood of steel, Reilly's rangers, the outcasts, and so many over groups you can choose to work with, or you can play the game solo. It is also free roam, so aside from the main ...more

Put more than 500 hours at least on this game. It's my favorite video game no doubt. I also like Oblivion and Morrowind and New Vegas and Skyrim... Man Bethesda wins! - TheCamoGhost

Placement does not matter, this game is my favorite of all time. Let's hope that Fallout 4 will be just as good, I would say better, but I don't know how it could be.

I have SO MANY HOURS in this game and I still play it today and constantly find more to do and new things evertime I play. This will always be my favorite game of all time. - Cosmic558

22 Chrono Trigger

Widely regarded as (and in my open is without a doubt) the best RPG of all time. It came out in 1995 with unprecedentedly good graphics, which even today are nothing to laugh at. The story is... Well, AWESOME. Though, typically, it is slightly cheesy, it is obviously well thought out. It has many different time periods that you can go into and countless side-stories.
Another interesting feature is that the main character, Chrono (or whatever you choose to name him) never speaks without your prompting and decision on what he DOES say. He is, in effect, YOU. You choose how the adventure progresses across time; your actions determine what outcome will occur. There are THIRTEEN possible endings; that is not only unprecedented, but has not been rivaled to this day.
The action is great; it was one of the first RPGs to have battle on the main map; also, battle is not random, an annoying feature of most RPGs. Through a variety of special attacks, even combinations combining Chrono and ...more - Malorian

Chrono Trigger is the greatest JRPG ever. Pretty much every aspect of this game was way ahead of it's time. The graphics hold up very well nowadays, and the art style is spot on. The character designs were made by the illustrator of Dragon Ball. The music is... just the best. It's the best video game soundtrack. It really makes you feel what the story is trying to tell you. One track is just a high pitched note on a violin. It is used for most of the sad and when the characters are scared, and it is awesome. The characters are perfect. They aren't exactly that deep, but the more complex of them (Robo, Magus) are almost real. The story is amazing. It really makes you feel the emotions that the characters are. It is never too complicated, but never really predictable. And there's 13 endings. Just saying.
And finally, the gameplay is phenomenal. There are no random encounters (thank god) and the battles are really easy to understand. Early on on the game you get the chance to fight ...more

An RPG set aside from older RPG titles. Created by the hands responsible for Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy franchises, along with artwork done by Akira Toriyama (Dragon Ball/Dr. Slump), and music by Yasunori Mitsuda and Nobuo Uematsu, you get one of the most beautiful, story woven RPGs on any platform since it's release on the SNES.

My SNES broke.. now I can't play this anymore. I literally hated my life. - DogmeatAndRex

23 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

Call of Duty is one of the most overrated game franchises out there. I've seen a ton of them. There are half a million of them and most of them are just about killing communists and terrorists and most recently Latin Americans (? ). The plots are recycled. The gameplay is mediocre. It seems all the game designers need to do to make another Call of Duty game is to improve the graphics, occasionally get a new engine, add more gory and violent special effects and more interesting ways to kill people and re create the old plot accept by adding a new one dimensional villein to fight and maybe some more sexy chicks. Some redeeming qualities include the graphics and the combat, but this game defiantly shouldn't be on here.

The last great Call of Duty before the utter storm that created the franchise we all know and hate! This game is, in my opinion, the best Call of Duty for many reasons! Action packed story with a great plot twist, a satisfying ending, great characters, good level design, fun fast-paced multiplayer, and great graphics for its time!

Along with Uncharted 2, this game features the most cinematic action sequences in video games today, along with some killer competitive and cooperative multiplayer. - montreal45

Greatest multiplayer shooting game ever created.

24 Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic

Too awesome,
Good and evil, star wars, dialogue options, great story.
You feel like you're really playing an important role in the star wars universe.

Brilliant game finished both the original and sequel multiple times, we need another one!

I wish Lord Sabertooth would have been a more crucial part of there story. I wish he would have forced grabbed Ron from out of town when he crashed the death star into the millennium falcon.

This game should be higher up than mid 20s. Easily takes #1 or 2 for RPG's and should be in the top 15.

25 Super Mario Galaxy

Super Mario Galaxy may well be the most, or one of the most memorable games in the whole of the Mario series. Arguably Super Mario Galaxy 2 may have been a major improvement, but without Super Mario Galaxy, there isn't a Super Mario Galaxy 2.

The game consists of eight terraces, scattered across the observatory and each can be unlocked throughout the game. In comparison to past Super Mario games, the world map is unique. Instead of accessing levels via a simple map, you must access the terraces to fly to galaxies.

The graphics are good, much better than most other Mario games released beforehand although not perfect.

Nintendo really upped their game with Super Mario Galaxy, but with their new console released (Wii U) there will be a lot of talk about Super Mario Galaxy 3.

This is one of the most incredible breakthroughs in gaming. It had insanely good graphics for the period it was introduced. Second, the game is exhilarating, and the emotions brought on range from anger to excitement to extreme sadness. It also had a story unmatchable by any other Mario game, with the tearjerker of the storybook to the ending, arguably one of the best endings in video game history. This game came out when I was four and watching my brother play it is one of my cherished memories.

It is just addicting. I spend 30 minutes trying to find a power star in one galaxy until I get lucky and move on to the next one. If you have a wii, you gotta get this game. - RHCPfan

26 Super Mario World

I'm sorry, but WHAT! 237? Why is this. This should be #2 or something. Super Mario World is my favorite game of all time and there's good reason to. This is the best selling game on the SNES at over 20 million units. That's more than Grand Theft Auto: SA, the pest selling game on the PS2. Mario World is long, fun, and filled to the brim with secrets, and is one of the most notable games of all time.

Not only is this a classic, it's a classic that has better quality than every modern video game out there. Platforming greatness with fun level design and secrets ahoy, I've played this one at least 20 times. - TheStupidHobo

When I was a kid Me and My Dad Spent HOURS on this game finding every secret entrance and completing star world.

I love this game, better than 3D WORLD, NEW MARIO BROS U, MARIO BROS, AND YOSHI

27 Metroid Prime

Metroid Prime is a great game by many means. Its story is concise while still being a good motivation to keep playing, and the world you traverse has good variety and ambiance. Its controls tight and responsive, despite the Gamecube controller being unsuited for an first-person perspective. The graphics were great, compared to other Gamecube games, adding to the atmosphere (like looking up for the first time on the Overworld, and seeing rain droplets trickle down your visor). On top of all of this, it stayed true to the Metroid franchise.

Still the most highly detailed and high-tech game today, even though it was made back in 2003 (very impressive). While the game itself drives many players insane, the huge detail, design, and unbelievable gameplay make it worthy of the Top Ten.

Absolutely incredible game on so many levels. Amazing visuals, music, atmosphere, storytelling, game play, and so much more. Metroid Prime broke a lot of ground and hasn't lost a bit of its fun despite being almost a decade old.

For me this tops all the new 'cool' games on PC, Xbox One, PS4, and...oh...the Wii U doesn't have any 'cool' games. It's the Wii U. Prime falls somewhere in between an FPS, adventure, and exploration. It has a perfect harmony of gameplay, music, and absolute emersion. This was when games really meant something. Now we have Totally Accurate Battle Simulator. That's gotta say something.

28 Resident Evil 4

I could give a Million reasons why this should be #1/#2 behind ocarina of time. This game is absolutely immersive. The level design is brilliant, the controls are very fluid. The story and characters are awesome. The diversity of bosses is crazy. Each level, chapter and stage in the game is different. You never really feel like you're doing the same thing again. I could go on and on, and in much greater detail but I don't fell like typing that much as the game speaks for it's self. - Azian

um this needs to be WAAAAAAAY higher on this list... just sayin - Miepo123

Just got this game today and it rocks! Go Leon go! Buy this game. It's excellent.

Best horror-survival game ever!

29 Bioshock

Something as diverse as Gaming is bound to forever divide, more so then perhaps Film, Television, and MAYBE even Music! But to see a Game as Beautifully Written as this one, not necessarily LOW, but without doubt LOWER then it should... Just hurts.

There are some Great Games above me here, some of the Greatest I've ever played! Fallout 3, Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 1 & 2, Resident Evil 4, Half Life 2, Grand Theft Auto IV AND San Andreas AND MANY MORE... But these are more or less the ones I have more experience playing, and I'm not saying that anything above, mentioned or not, is crap or anything pertaining to such thoughts, but once you've played Bioshock, YOU KNOW Gaming doesn't get any better. And this goes beyond 'Controls' and menial stuff like that! As far as I'M concerned, so long as I can control my Character WELL, then I'm sweet. I don't care much for Graphics and all that either, just so long as I can discern my Character and he flows smoothly, everything is ...more

Once you've played games like bioshock and fallout nv you know gaming. They are extremely fun, innovative, and practically limitless and challenge you like never before. The best games are not the easiest but the ones that leave you with the best satisfaction at the end of the day while leaving you hungry for more. I though call of duty was the greatest thing ever but now I see it as a joke. These games are for intense gamers and it will pull you in, putting you at the edge of your seat and questioning if this game could be actuality or if it's all just in your head.

But I'll let you decide that for yourself...

I don't understand why this game is not in the top 5, I do not understand why this game is not in the top 10 I do not understand why this game is in number 28... This is by far the greatest game I have ever played. It has a great story, it's immersive and you never get bored of listening to audio-tape after audiotape, reading messages from the walls and listening to phsycotic people dialog, the gameplay is fun and sometimes very challenging... The game is creative in so many ways, when you first get to Rapture you're mind is just blown away, I had goosebumps for the first 30 minutes of the game because I was so amazed. This is a game I can play over and over again and not get bored. That I can't say about most of the games above Bioshock on this list, please just please vote this up.

Love the game interesting characters interesting, level design, and that goes for the whole series.

30 The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

The best video game ever, that I have played. It has a beautiful layout, cool-looking characters, and a great story behind it. I believe it is the first Zelda game I ever played, and I am feeling slightly depressed that it's broken, and no longer works. Also, quoting Chuggaaconroy, cuteness never looked so badass. Too bad it's sequels weren't on the Wii, rather than the DS. Also, I can draw the style of the game!

The Wind Waker is a masterful game. An epic and enthralling adventure that never ceases to amaze. The world of Wind Waker is absolutely beautiful, exploring it and discovering the secrets is really intriguing. The story is told wonderfully and the journey is captivating. The gameplay and combat mechanics are so good! The music is simply amazing. The characters are great and Link is so expressive and badass here. The climax of the final battle is one of the greatest moments in gaming. An all round fantastic game. - DamnFineCupOfCoffee

To me, it's the best game of all time. The gameplay was similar to Ocarina of Time, but better. The story was amazing, the graphics were charming and fitting to the emotions displayed in the game, and the soundtrack was the definition of masterpiece. The world is huge, and it gives you a lot to explore and discover. I play the game and I still discover new things with every gameplay. This deserves to be higher. I think the only reason it isn't is because there are still a few people disappointed with the graphics.

BEST VIDEO GAME EVER

31 Star Wars Battlefront II

AWESOME GAME! The campaign is extremely good and instant action has many new places such as Utapu. Also, many modes like hunt mode where you hunt the planet's natives or XL where it is a who can kill 350 men first battle. I can't ask for anything better!

Why is this so low on the list this was one of the best games ever made

My favorite star wars game and third person shooter... Play this play this now!

One of the best games ever for the PSP.
Really awesome!

32 Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

While some would say it is overrated, I firmly believe that this is the closest gaming has ever come to emulating a cinematic, summer, action flick. The audiovisual presentation is mindblowing. - montreal45

This game should crack the top 10, it's just mind blowing, and so much better than all this Call of Duty crap! Mechanics, story, multiplayer, co op, it just has it all! - RandomDrummer

The uncharted series has the second best games after Minecraft. It's a perfect blend of awesome graphics, characters that you actually care about, a story line that you want to follow, treasures to find, enemies to shoot, jungles to explore, and cliffs to climb. Amazing game, should be higher.

Couldn't be better

33 Super Mario Bros. 3

Super Mario Bros. 3 is one of the greatest NES games created. It build on everything that made Super Mario Bros. 1 great and multiplied it by a whole lot. The feather, hammer head suit, frog suit, etc. Are some new editions to the game that make the replay value high. It also has all the power-ups from the first Super Mario Bros. You can also skip levels you don't want to play in Mario 3 and you can equip yourself with a power-up before entering a level. Super Mario Bros. 3 is a masterpiece and it should respectfully be higher on this list.

When I saw this list, I was simply ashamed to see this game wasn't on it. It's the greatest NES game of all time. It's the greatest Mario game of all time. Practically every retro gamer who ever lived know and worship this game! It combines all the aspects of 2D Mario platformers and multiplies them by ten! This game is perfect!

One of the greatest nes games ever made but the only thing that sucks is you can't save

Such a classic. Needs to be in the top ten or fifteen. - Longesthorn

34 Team Fortress 2

I still hate how Call of Duty is above tf2, people who play tf2 has SKILL, people who play Call of Duty has NO SKILL, they think its fun because killing is so easy. Welcome to the world of team fortress 2, where only the skilled can kill and the non skilled gets killed

With the exception of half-life 2 this is the best fps I've ever played. Not to mention crazy fun multilayer, hilarious characters and dialogue and even a collecting element. The innovative class features and game play make this a awesome game.

This is the best game ever! I can't believe it is #54! YOU HAVE TO VOTE FOR THIS! If you've never played it, PLAY IT! You will love it!

Oh boy, it's my favorite. Trying not to be biased writing this. I love this game and I've played it for years, despite some rather questionable updates and Overwatch. You don't need to be p2p to have a lot of fun with this game, despite the limits. The popularity of this game has diminished over the years, and the community is more or less dying from my point of view, but what makes me keep on going back to play this game is the memories and the crazy fun I've had with this. This defined fps and was extremely creative upon release. I'm not going to call this the best game ever made, but rather the most fun game ever made. While I also like Overwatch for being the perfect replacement and taking it to the next level, I still go with TF2. I'm not asking for you to vote for this, I'm telling you to. - UltraGamer

35 Super Smash Brothers - Nintendo Wii U

After almost 30 years, this game lets us do what we have always wanted to do: Give the Duck Hunt Dog a long deserved falcon punch.

This game is a masterpiece. Super Smash Bros. is a masterpiece of a franchise from beginning to end (not the end. Maybe one on Nintendo Switch). This is by far my favorite video game of anything (right along with Sailor Moon Drops on Mobile.) Outstanding roster of characters (My main is Mario! ), amazing graphics, great combat system which improved over Brawl, and even Amiibo! My best friend and I have sucked the life out of this game, playing for hundreds of hours. This game is way too fun and too good. It needs a spot in the top 20, or even better, top 10. Amazing game, and definitely one you would trade your money for.

I'm actually not surprised this is the third smash bros on the list. This game is amazing! It enjoys great graphics, imaginative stages, and most importantly, a host of over 50 unique characters to play as! This is my favorite game and everyone should get to enjoy it.

I am young but I can truley say this came is my childhood and the best game I ever played. It has an amazing array of characters and moves, and in my opinion is one of the best fighting franchises if not the best.

36 Call of Duty: Black Ops II

I don't care about Call of Duty so I didn't even bother with Ghosts, my left finger cramped after clicking 18 hours straight,

WHAT! WHY IS BLACK OP 2 NUMBER 35 - keam

Call of Duty has fell some times, but BO2 is a real rise, not only in Call of Duty series, but also in the gaming history.(You know, I don't blame anyone for not liking it, but it's a cool game.)

No way is it one of the best games ever. All you do is shoot, run, kill, shoot, run, and kill over and over again

37 Metal Gear Solid

Oh come on, how is this not in the top 10? Metal Gear Solid revolutionised the video game industry and quality of gaming in general. I consider it one of the best games on the PS1 and in the history of video gaming. It's quite insulting to find this under many overhyped games (I'm looking at you Call of Duty).

I don't think it's the best game ever, but I'm voting for it because it deserves to be higher. I mean, come on. It's Metal Gear Solid.

This is one of the best video game everywhere but here. GOSH! Come on, guys.

This was the most technically superior game of all games during and after its release.Most people didn't play it because it needs your attention and it had a lot of dialog.A true marvel ignored by kids.

38 Assassin's Creed II

UBISOFT IS THE BEST GAMING COMPANY EVER!
And assassin's creed II is the best ubisoft game. Hence, Assassin's Creed II is the best game ever. The game takes you across Italy and lets you experience the sadness and betrayal that ezio, the protagonist, feels. The game gives the the absolute feeling of freedom when your playing the game. This is definitely one of the best games in the history of gaming!

Assassin's creed is one of the best games ever. Beautiful graphics, awesome storyline and sick gameplay. AC II is by far the best of the series. Love the open world concept and the freedom you have in pursuing your agenda, even within the constraints of missions.

This game has the best graphics and story ever! I love how you can buy new weapons and I also love the new ways to kill people like jumping off buildings.

EZIO IS THE BEST ASSASSIN IN THE FRANCHISE OF "ASSASSIN¬'S CREED"!
But, talking professionaly, the story is intense...
A big betrayal for the Auditore family... Ezio will get his revenge!
The gameplay its AWESOME! The parkour, the missions... Every thing we can do in the game its awesome.
I LOVE WALKING BY HORSE!

39 The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Incredibly creative, highly innovative, and greatly passionate game. From the storyline to the gameplay, it is almost flawless.

One of the most beautiful games of all time. From the story to the gameplay.

The only (or at least main) reason why so many people don't like this game nearly as much as they should is because the VERY VAST majority of people who played Twilight Princess made the mistake of playing the Wii version when the GameCube version is vastly superior to it (mainly because it was originally meant for the GameCube). And even if a person were to play the GameCube version after playing the Wii version it would already be too late, because they played the Wii one first their experience from the game would be forever stained. Which is a real shame because to this day Twilight Princess is 1 of my very favorite games I've ever played and I hope people enjoy TP HD when it comes out it in 2016.

I love This Game From Beginning To start - VideoGamefan5

40 Portal

Portal is an amazing game that doesn't get nearly enough credit. It may be short, but it's funny, creepy, and has the best villain ever: GLaDOS. - Fwingsnitch

A new and original idea that had fans lusting over it the minute it was released.

Short but sweet. Honestly, I can't think of anything wrong with this game. Yes, it can be beaten in 3-4 hours, but that's fine. It's better to a have a short game, where every moment is a blast, than a long, padded slog.

Please people get this higher than number 41. This game has it all. Puzzles, a villan, a boss battle, and who can forget the three best parts: GLaDOS, the companion cube and of course, the cake. - GrapeJuiceK
