41 Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

Awesome story.real cool gameplay.this is the best Call of Duty game ever.Ask any gamer any real gamer like me who has played every single game and he will tell you what a game means.

Deserves a spot in the top ten for sure. CoD4 was a revolution in gaming. Nothing will ever do what it did.

how is this not in the top ten? It is the highest selling game of all time, plus a very great shooter, and back in its prime would destroy any game, except maybe San Andreas, plus the graphics of this game were so realistic it wasn't funny!

Best Game, Hands down.

42 Banjo-Kazooie

This game is the best adventure game with a lot of personality and humor. You just can't top that.

HOW IS THIS NOT IN THE TOP 15! AND Call of Duty 6 IS!? Call of Duty 4 was good but come on guys s=most of these games are quality, is this better than mario 64 and you know it! - Dr_Sandvichius

Different and amazing worlds, transforming into cool things, amazing music, super fun gameplay... So much nostalgia. - ShuhBanggg

The only game I've given a perfect 10

43 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

44 Pokemon

Please! This game is great! Pokemon is a fun and adventurous game people could like if they just play it. Great music, great characters, and great stories (sometimes). It will always be great to play and everyone should just open up! When I was younger I hated Pokemon (But guess what! I have not played an actual game! ). Conclusion: If you do not like it, it maybe because you have not played it.

Pokemon is the best selling RPG that totally deserves to be higher on this list. With MILLIONS of team combinations you can play the game over and over with different combos. Pokemon can let you play the game and have complete control over yourself is something that is very rare in games that kids can play. It's also awesome for all ages. Althouh I agree that some of the games in the top ten (Super smash bros, Legend of Zelda) deserve to be in the top ten, Pokemon will always be my Number One.

Come on! This game is underrated. It's the bestselling Rpg franchise in the whole world (yeah Shocker! Its not final fantasy). This game is great in every way from gameplay to characters, its honestly my favorite game franchise ever but it would never be able to beat Super Mario. By the way, Pokemon is the 2nd bestselling videogame franchise in the world

It's really awesome

45 Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

59 games in and this one is yet to be added. You can thank me later. While Ocarina is a masterpiece in it's own right, A Link to the Past laid the ground work for everything brilliant in a Zelda game, or any action/adventure game for that matter. Never before has a game brought me more joy than this title. Best game ever by a mile. -

Greatest game ever! A lot of weapons, moves, a gigantic world, great puzzles, awesome storyline, awesome 2d graphics and awesome music! Why is Tomb Raider #1? This game is a true masterpiece and it should be experienced by everyone! - loganruckmanman

I don't think it's quite good enough for No. 1, but it deserves far better than this low place. I mean, Nintendo power rated it the second best Video Game on a Nintendo Console! Come on, guys! - LittleZbot

While I do applaud this game for saving the Zelda series from the horror that was Zelda II. Ocarina of Time was much better and made the series famous. I do think this deserves a higher spot than 71 though this should at least be in the top 20.

46 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

SoulSilver and emerald are the best Pokemon games

47 Fallout: New Vegas

My personal favorite in the series simply because it has most of the lore I liked from fallout 1 and 2 while being far superior gameplay wise to fallout 3. I get pissed off at how much people overate fallout 3 to New Vegas because New Vegas in my opinion is the best fallout game ever released besides fallout 2 and fallout 1 (I think New Vegas is even better than fallout 4 because of the wide variety of choices). Fallout 3 is not better than fallout New Vegas so (pleased don't get pissed this is my opinion)!

In my opinion the best game of all TIME! The amount of story and the overall impact that you have on the world blew my mind away. I've completely dissected this game and done all the side quests. your actions have meaning in the fallout series and this is a prime example of either treating it like real life or deciding to not care. If you haven't played it your missing out

Providing hours of fun, and having a significant replay value, it is well worth the money for any gamer.

The best game I've played in my whole life.

48 Tomb Raider

Great to see that tomb raider is back in business worldwide. I thought it would take a while... But I'm sure it will once again reach the top as is did the very first time it came out. TRU will definitely rock, more than any other PS game have done or will do... She will become for sure, the PS3 face just like she was the ps1s. - krycekuva

Tomb Raider is awesome because it was one of the first games (other then Metroid) to have a female protagonist instead of a male protagonist. And if she was real I would be at her bedroom window. EVERY SINGLE DAY.

At one point this series was godlike. It was entertaining, challenging, and sexy. At some point towards the end of its rain it lost a lot of its thunder. Please tell me someone caught the pun... Anyway, this game, regardless of its later faults, remains a formula that many companies would do well to follow.

Should be much higher. It revolutionized 3D gaming by having Lara interact with the environment around her to a great extent. And the fact that this game was made by 6 people really shows the talent of the group behind this game. And, by the way, for anyone comparing this game to OoT, just know that this game came out 2 years before OoT was released so... yeah. I'm not saying it's better than OoT but stop camparing the two. They're totally different

49 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.

50 Metal Gear

I cant believe it wasn't even on the list" I cant think of many other games that could tell a story better than metal gear can. On top of that it completely established the genre of Stealth gameplay single handedly.
The game was also very ahead of its time as far as creativity I cant a think of another game that had as many genuine ideas from button tapping, switching control ports, to how creative they used the rumble feature. when at the time the playstation didn't even come standard with rumble. the graphics were also very advanced for its time compared.
i think the only reason its not as nearly appreciated is because its very slow paced and is exclusive to the playstation.
the game was very unique in that it was not repetitive from basic gameplay to the boss battles, you were given the choice of how you would engage the opponent whether it be sneaking up on them and snapping there neck or just choking them till the pass out. what made the game great was the advanced AI ...more - Shimmy

METAL GEAR SOLID is the best video game series of all time. It is recommended to be played by all. Everyone who plays it will be in awe of its cinematic greatness, outstanding gameplay, and its numerous gameplay options and special features. The game is so popular and well respected that the creator, Hideo Kojima, is the most well known and respected video game directors of today. he should win an Oscar for his achievements in the Medal Gear franchise. Since it is a Playstation exclusive it is known mostly by PS fans, but now that he is taking it to XBOX 360, it will become a World-Wide video game console phenomenon. metal gear Solid 3 was my favorite because of the storyline, but MGS4 wins hands down with gameplay and OUTSTANDING Cinematic graphics with well known voice actors and models. Metal Gear series... 10 out of 10

Best Game Series Ever. I Mean The Story Is Better Than Most Hollywood Movies Just The Best, I Hope Metal Gear Will Never end. - copkiller

Storytelling my Hideo Kojima second to none, mix that in with stealth action = gaming masterpiece

51 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.)

How can this be so low!?! This is the first Call of Duty game I EVER played, and it will always be my favorite.
Plus, it is STILL BEING PLAYED IN 2017!
If a game has this much hype this long after release, you know you have done something right!

52 Gears of War

Wow. Just wow. What puts this game aside from other scary shooters, like Dead Space for example, is you can seen what you're killing. It's never too dark. This game blew me away.

The game that introduced us to the chainsaw fatality. - htoutlaws2012

BEST GAME EVER MADE AND IF YOU HAVEN'T PLAY IT SHAME ON YOU!

Simply put, this game is a classic. If you are a gamer and you haven't played this game yet, well you are missing a HUGE bit of life dude. No matter how many years do you have, or what you do for a living. If you are a gamer that loves guns, action and explotions, this game will blow your little newbie head out of the park...
No questions.

53 Half-Life

This is, in short, my favorite video game of all time. I know the phrase gets thrown around a lot, but Half-Life was one of the first computer games I played and it's still my favorite. It's not perfect by any means, but it put Valve on the map and was a milestone for first person shooters. This game was way ahead of its time, and spawned many mods that became full-fledged franchises, such as Day of Defeat and Counter-Strike.

I simply don't understand why Half-Life 2 is so much higher on the list than the original game. They're both incredible, and deserve the same amount of respect. Valve knew what they were doing when they entered the video game industry, and their Half-Life series remains one of the most well-crafted franchises on the market.

The mods ALONE for this game make it #1 for me. Counter Strike? Team Fortress Classic? Day of Defeat? Natural Selection? Firearms? Digital Paintball? Just some of the awesome mods made possibly BY THIS GAME.

I remember playing it when it had just came out, the interactive cut scenes were so novel and creative for the time - the train ride in the beginning and the AI behavior of the human enemies and everything else. It was immersive and the headcrabs were actually a bit scary

I would rate Half-Life as the Best Video Game Ever.

Compared to our time, terrible graphics; but in my eyes graphics don't complete the game, I feel that this gave valve a head start into a company that produces many games to come.

Easily best game, look at any professional game rater and it will be top 5.It is so stupid its at 91.

54 The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

While there are many detractors regarding Oblivion, in my opinion, no other action RPG offers as much replay value. The sheer variety of character builds and styles is the trump card for Oblivion. Skyrim has the graphics but very few styles that you can play. Morrowind also has a great variety of character styles, but there's just something about Oblivion that keeps drawing you back. While I prefer the ambiance of Morrowind and the graphics of Skyrim, Oblivion is the best overall.

The freedom to be who you want to be in a fantasy world - will you save people or slay people? Go treasure hunting in a dungeon or steal from the closest house? In the Elder Scrolls, it's up to you.

A pretty good game. Might have some creepy and scary stuff so if your afraid of everything don't play this game. But actually you can play it if you like. You can find monsters and destroy them. It's KIND of like Minecraft except it's not made out of blocks and doesn't have the creeper.

Even better than Skyrim. - Ketrikal

55 Doom

If it wasn't for this, most of the other games wouldn't be what they are. It revolutionized the industry with its "3D" graphics, its online multiplayer, its controls, its speed, its weapons, the modding community, its level design, and simplistic but fun gameplay. All first person games (Not just shooters) or even all multiplayer games can trace their roots to this.

This should take Minecrafts place, but NO this list has to be made by how popular it is! if doom isn't popular how come doom's fanbase has survived and is still healthy after 20 YEARS!

It's better than that game Minecraft

Just plain fun!

56 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D

It's a portable Ocarina of Time but with better graphics, 3D, and better controls. Whats not to love?

Remake of best game ever

But it's a 2D game using 3D polygons to give the impression of 3D depth of field in the first place, and then utilises the now defunct Virtua Boy to really make it a 3Dx2 experience?

I know right! you can't even beat the damn classics unless you actually know how to beat the game and you have the game!

59 Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

This is my favorite game of all time. Just wow. I knew not that many people love it this much (although the majority of people who have ACTUALLY PLAYED IT love it) so I wasn't as upset as I could've been as I scrolled down past many other great games (and maybe not-so-great games) looking for it. Anyway, I found it, and here I am! I don't know where to start with this game. It combines the amazing aspects of Mario with the complexity, atmosphere, intensity, and immersiveness (is that a word? ) of an RPG. Frankly, the main RPG games I play are the Mario ones, since they really are that fantastic and Mario is my favorite franchise. This game is as close to perfect as you can get. The gameplay is amazing, improving on the great battle system of the original Paper Mario. The characters are original and great, the dialogue is funny and can also be serious, the story is so deep and thought out (especially when compared to most Mario games), the bosses are fun, the levels are unique, and the ...more

The first Paper Mario warmed up our gamer hearts, opened our mind and prepared us to one of the greatest Mario adventures of all-time. When the second installment was announced, people expected VERY much of this game. We weren't disappointed. Nintendo and Intelligent Systems threw us this game that marked a "before" and an "after". One of the best installment of the series.

This game is better then any other game in the known universe and you know what anybody who is not to like this game can go not live on this planet

60 Terraria

This game is way better then Minecraft, it may be 2-D but this game has everything Minecraft has and more! There is more armor, bosses, swords, mobs, events, and etc. It also has more stuff than Minecraft, It has wings, guns, etc. Overall this game has a lot in common with Minecraft, but is better in almost every way.

Me and my dad love playing this game together. We always see who can find stronger weapons. Right now he has a weapon that can do something like 264 damage. I think he used hacks, though. - Catlover2004

Minecraft's Better cousin, packed with adventure and fun that any sensible person would love.

Minecraft is great in building, but lacks in everything else such as adventure and mobs, something I like.

Terraria has so much to do, and you can do anything you want! Do a melee, magic, summoner play through, no armor playthrough. How is not even entering the top 60?
