21 Kingdom Hearts II

One of the greatest and most complicated story lines ever made. A story of a boy who undergoes many hardships just to keep his world and his friends safe. Sora has a big heart and will do anything just for his friends even if it means giving up his own life. He confuses friendship and love with Kairi and is very dedicated to find his friend Riku. When he eventually does, he breaks down into tears. Truly and heart touching story. The perfect crossover video game one could play. A great role playing game suitable for all ages. This game should be ranked much higher.

Definitely one of the games ever it has one of the best storylines I've ever seen it combines the Disney and final fantasy characters so well and they also blend their own characters to.

Highly underrated video game with a highly underrated plot, I love the way the Square Enix melded Final Fantasy, Disney and original characters effortlessly, what I like about this one more than the original, is the fact the first was mostly Sora's quest to find Kairi, but the second shows both sides of that continued saga, and it's a truly beautiful story, with beautiful animation, the game I have enjoyed most ever.

Yes. The story is absolutely brilliant once you come to understand it, I do not care if I am only 12, this game is my childhood.

22 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.

This game has hold up in every factor exept its controls they won't seem familiar to most people now with dual stick controls being easier to learn than ever but metroid prime sticks out in this way and creates a differeint experience almost exclusively by the controls

23 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

Probably the best Mario game out there, I was going to vote for super Smash Bros Wii U because that needs to be in at least top 20, but Super Mario Galaxy gets my vote because it easily deserves top 5, at the most top 10 but that a giant stretch. It is one of the few games I actually have and it is easily in my top. It has the intense hardness but not much and it introduces many Mario fans their favourite character(s). It is just great and please do vote for Super Mario Galaxy (or if you do not I recommend Super Smash Bros Wii U:).

24 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.

The soundtrack is perfect and the the level design is flawless. Plus 10 points for being a Mario game, plus another 10 because it's a SNES game, plus 10 because it's got Yoshi, plus ten for Koji Kondo and plus ten for being from the 90s.

25 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.

Star Wars:Battlefront is better - wriddhak

26 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.

Best game of all time, a amazing gaming experience and I highly recommend it

27 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!

I played this before, it's pretty good. - PeeledBanana

28 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

29 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.

Perfect.

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.

The HD version added a ton of cool things though.

31 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

In my opinion it should be higher because this game is a great experience.

32 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.

They seriously need to make a remastered version of this game! I would love it if they would make this game backward compatible on the Xbox One, but if not, I would gladly buy the game again for the remastered version. This is the only one in the entire Call of Duty franchise that I actually loved playing. This game has a fantastic story mode and the multiplayer part of this game is phenomenal. Anyone can play for hundreds of hours just on the multiplayer mode. Hopefully Call of Duty: WWII will be more like this one. The other games kind of suck.

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!

Greatest multiplayer shooting game ever created.

33 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!

34 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.

Better than Melee, better than Brawl. So underrated.

35 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.

Seriously, it would be the bomb if Midna got into Super Smash Bros. 5!

36 Luigi's Mansion

It was a launch title for the gamecube and sported some of the best graphics and gameplay that the console has ever seen. It's not much for length, and the story is kind of weak, but the charm and the secrets will keep you coming back for more after the credits roll. At least that is what it did to me. - kingofgames321

Pretty much the only Nintendo game I play anymore. It's funny and deviates from the never-ending loop of copy-and-pasted-plot Mario games with something that's truly special. Luigi's Mansion doesn't get anywhere near enough love that it should have and was probably the best launch title in the history of video games.

Luigi's Mansion was my second video game and I still play and replay it to this day. It does not get the love it deserves, and though it has an okay sequel, nothing beats the original.

I love Luigi's Mansion. Being a Mario game, it's quirky and it's funny, but at the same time, it's really dark, and unlike anything else in the franchise. - Ant-Fan

37 Left 4 Dead 2

This game was the best muti-player game on 360 hard to beat when your partner croaks all of the bad guys come for you at the end of the level and the swarms that you have to stave off - mountainhawk

L4D2 is a action packed game with gargantuan amount of bloodshed, insanity and huge number blood loving zombies which keep coming at you just to get their body parts chopped off with chainsaws, katanas and even frying pans. The extreme and insane amount of madness is perfect for trigger happy people and it also has molotovs :D.

I really scary, this is my best zombie games all times, I want to download this but my internet connectivity is low to download this games (Go Indonesian)

I have so many memories with this game. I feel that this game is VERY underrated. Campaign is awesome. Versus is fun. Amazing Game - VenomxShocker

38 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

39 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.

Why is this so low on the list? It's probably one of the best games out there.

40 Pokemon Emerald

WHY IS THIS THE FIRST Pokemon GAME ON THE LIST AT SPOT 41?

Emerald is one of the best of the Pokemon games (this is my favorite Pokemon generation) and it should be at least number 10. One of the best stories, unique that it charms both adults and children. I played my first Pokemon game, Pokemon Sapphire, at age six with my friend; we sat their for hours with our game boy advances just leveling up Pokemon. Pokemon Emerald existed back when the Pokemon games were hard; like, actually hard. I find Pokemon Emerald harder than games like Skyrim or Tomb Raider.

The gameplay is challenging but not infuriating at all; the game flows smoothly and there are no major issues (other than walking indoors, something incorporated in later games) Pokemon Emerald doesn't have all of the extra things like Mega Evolution, 3d lands and 600+ Pokemon. Although I like how diverse and open to everyone Pokemon now is, its nice to remember when Pokemon was simple but amazing, as shown with ...more

Best Pokemon game ever! 10/10 in my opinion. Zelda and Pokemon are my 2 favorite series of all time, so I'm not sure which is better, this or OoT, but this needs to be WAY higher. It is the highest Pokemon game on the list yet only at 38?

Should be in the top 10. Is an absolutely amazing game. - 1234567890qwerty

The best game to everyone isn't in another franchise from pokemon.
