Regardless of genre, platform, and age; these are the greatest video games ever created.

41 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

42 The 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

Why is this wayy down here?

43 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

Searched for my favorite game ever, saw it's only on #43. How...?!

44 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.

This game is amazing

45 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).

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

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.

GOD HOW IS THIS NOT HIGHER HAVE NONE OF YOU PLAYED THIS?

46 Super Mario Galaxy 2

This is the most imaginative, polished, and fun 3D platformer I have ever played, and I can happily say it is my favorite game of all time. - montreal45

Mario's best moment yet! Several galaxies, 240 stars to get, AMAZING graphics and soundtrack, the spin attack is really useful, and so much more! There is yet to be a better Mario game. No, I have not gotten a 3ds yet. - Thepenguinking2

This IS awesomely awesome, with a blend of awesomeness and awesome friends of awesomely extreme awesomeness

This game is a masterpiece. There is so much to do, so many cool items and mechanics and the graphics are beautiful. A 10/10 game for me.

47 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.)

Best Call of Duty by far

48 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

I can only say one thing. 55?! Are you kidding me? I accept it in the 3rd place.

49 BioShock Infinite

This game was incredible!
The combat was fun, it was fast paced and action packed, the graphics were phenomenal, but most importantly... The story was unbelievable! Best ending ever

I don't think people understand how good this game is, it has an amazing storyline, the best and most com twist ever, It also has great action and possibly is the best all round game ever?

My new favorite game of all time. Epic Story, especially the end is something, you wont find that often.

The breathtaking visual spectacle that is Columbia is enough to make this game a keeper. Then you throw in one of the most engrossing plot lines ever and you have an instant classic. No other game took me in and gave me the experience this one did. Awesome. Simply awesome.

50 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.

51 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.

52 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

Easily the best Paper Mario game. - Gamefreak23788

53 Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater

This game is absolutelly perfect. Everything about it just gives me shivers down my spine. If you where to play this game now. I mean right now. You definitely wouldn't regret it. In other words why the hell haven't you played this? Best game in the best franchise ever created. The famous hideo kojima really outdid himself with this MASTERPIECE so stop reading and start playing. For me... a person you have never met. Who has scoured through the list to find this gem so I could write a comment. Please play it

So this game gets beaten by two call of duty games. Shows you how ridiculous this website is because this game was truly a master piece and should definitely be higher on the list. Ocarina of Time is overrated by the way, just to state that.

Everything, the good, the bad, make the whole game click perfectly.

How tf this is not in the top 10 is something I'll never understand.

54 Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood

55 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!

56 The Walking Dead

This game was amazing. It had likable characters, a good story line, and the ending was extremely emotional. I will not spoil it but if you played the game and got through the ending without shedding at least a tear well congratulations you psychopath. It also shows how jut a point and click game can be very enjoyable to play. Over all, just an amazing game. Two thumbs up over here.

The walking dead was, at its worst, amazing. It showed how simple gameplay can be fun with a great and emotional story, and you actually felt for the characters. It deserves higher on this list and deserved game of the year

Honestly deserves to be #1 or at least top 10. The fact that I got so attached to Lee, and was so broken after he died, shows that telltale made a perfect game. Yes, I would go so far to say this is a perfect game. While games like ocarina of time and super mario bros and such do deserve all the credit, this game deserves a higher spot than any stupid FPS game. Please, just exterminate games like call of duty black ops 11 we need more games just like this.

Best game ever too amaziingg

57 Halo Reach

Halo reach has the best multiplayer ever. And if you don't like the multiplayer then check out the campaign. The forge is the best place to play privately with your friends, and just let out all of the randomness inside of you. Go ahead, hate it, but it is way better than the first and the last game on this list.

It has so much action. Everybody who played this should vote for it. Everyone should get it. It is number one

This may seem crazy, but I think this is the best halo. I love the online gameplay and it has the best halo map ever, sword base

58 Dark Souls

150? This is my #1 game of all time it should be at least top 100 if not top 50. Just because it is not popular does not mean it's not good. Many people are turned off by it because they think it is too hard, but once you get into it and immerse yourself you will realize it is one of the best games of all time. I was like you once. My cousin was telling me this is the best game of all time so I bought it for $20 and I couldn't beat the first boss so I put the game down and didn't touch it for months. Then I finally decided to try to play it for real and now I have probably played it for more than 1000 hours and beat it with many different characters and gotten to new game +5 with one character.

Dark Souls is truly a masterpiece, from its innovative storytelling, its intense combat, and beautiful environment design. I have never been so immersed in a game. It is such a horrible thing that people overlook these things and instead look at its difficulty. Many people compare games like The Last of Us to Citizen Kane and other movies, but Dark souls can't be compared to a movie, because it's a video game that only works as a video game, it shows that video games can be a unique art form, and that difficulty can sometimes make achieving a goal all the more sweeter, and that is why Dark Souls is my all time favorite video game.

Honestly, this game should be in the top twenty at least, if not top 10. In my opinion, I would say this is better than skyrim, and I played skyrim first. Dark souls has the best combat, of any RPG I have played, the unique story which you must uncover yourself, and amazing level design. I find it sad many people do not pick up this game or rage quit on a boss they cannot defeat, for the difficulty, when the game is very rewarding.

The mechanics of this game are amazing. There is very little that I can say is wrong with the game. It is hard, but it is always fair. This game easily deserves top 25... Honestly, I would even go so far as to say top 10.

59 Terraria

Extremely underrated. Much better than Minecraft or any other game. It is not a ripoff of Minecraft, it has so much stuff. It has heaps of boss fights and weapons and enemies and events. Just a bit complicated, but still the best game I know. - rbits

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.

Heavily disagree. At least Minecraft multiplayer is actually fun. - PeeledBanana

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

Better than Minecraft and has a way better fan base.

60 Ratchet & Clank Up Your Arsenal

Back before R&C was ruined by all 4 one the franchise was at it's best. On the PS2 everyone had at least one R&C game and this one was surely the best of them all. Taking everything that made Going commando great and extending it with more upgradable weapons (each one unique and innovative on it's own) awesome side missions and of course, a creative and entertaining storyline with one of my all time favorite villians: Dr Nefarious. Top things off with a multiplayer competable with HALO and you have yourself a lasting yet epic game sure to put a smile on your face. - Drbazinga

VERY good platform game, with lots to do and awesome characters, insomniac before they where known for there creative weapon design with fallout were known for there creative weapon design with ratchet and clank...

The first Ratchet and Clank game I played was "Size Matters". It was very fun, and I ended up getting the first 3 games. This game is simply amazing-story, weapons, and just fun. - Garythesnail

My favourite childhood videogame, this game holds a special place in my heart.
