81 Halo: Combat Evolved

This was literally the best game of all time, and still is. The Graphics, sound, plot, action and gameplay are all things which are completely outstanding both for its time period and for all time. This was my favorite game I ever played, and most people didn't even play it in this generation, which is sad. When there was no online multiplayer, no one knew how to do that except to link up an Xbox through some online bs... This game is by far the best of all time, the best there ever will be, far superior than even its sequels.

Best game because it started the best franchise ever known to man. It doesn't get any better than halo

The Original. wont say this is the best game ever, but it was the first of its kind, and it knocked it outta the park. member playing online, with my Xbox hooked up to my computer, and playing lan games against other people online. Multiplayer before it even came out. thast what made the game great for me, the multiplayer.. as a single player, it's a mediocre, multiplayer, best in class for even 5 years to come, with is impressive in ANY area involving tech.

Why the first game of the franchise is here?

82 Far Cry 3

This is an amazing game single payer makes it my top 3 game but with coop and multiplayer makes it just under fallout 3 witch is the game with the most meaning and best story but I only have played like 10% of far cry 3 so I don't know if it is even better than I thought

Holy crap 100 place this is surprising! I expected to see this at a reasonable 20th place, for a video games of ALL TIME list, but 100th? That's kind of crazy, and now I feel like I didn't accomplish much... But, hey! I beat #13 and #14!

Yep. The best Far Cry - which is saying something considering how good the whole series is. Roll on Primal (which looks like Ark).

What...this game is insanely good and way better than assassins creed games...i just love the moment when jason and vaas share the screen together...this list is wrong

83 Earthbound

In this game, I laugh almost at everything that NPCs said.
In addition to this, the EarthBound universe draws heavily from pop culture. Some references/hat-tips you might pick up if you're paying attention:

The Beatles
Chuck Berry
Monty Python
Blues Brothers
Little Rascals
The Loch Ness Monster
Stonehenge
More Sci-fi-Horror B-Movies from the 1950's than you can count.
Its not the top thing but...
It has interesting story and this game take you to finish about 8-12 hours.
The main heroes are NEss from onnet, Paula polestar from the twoson, jeff from the winters school and Poo from dalaam.

Most were still set in medieval times, with knights and mages battling mythical monsters with swords and magic. Few games dared to defy this mold until EarthBound (MOTHER 2 as it is known in Japan). No other game was like it, except maybe its prequel, MOTHER, which had not been released outside of Japan. EarthBound introduced, and even today continues to ...more

Seriously. VOTE FOR THIS GAME. It's one of the only games that has truly made me cry tears of joy and sadness. For one, the soundtrack is AMAZING. The characters are reasonably developed and interesting, and there's a story that doesn't take away from game play but still keeps you interested and explains everything well. Its prequel and sequel were both amazing as well. It has a fantastic theme of love, friendship, and growing up, and it's (in my opinion) one of the best video games of all time. Fuzzy Pickles!

so incredibly under rated and FUN most people don't even now about thanks the president of Nintendo of America though (Dear reggie we all hate Sincerly all earthbound fans everywhere)

This is a very fun game, I do get stuck at times but that makes it more fun.

84 Sonic The Hedgehog 2

Lets face it, Sega's awesome and this game actually became the BESTSELLING SEGA game of all time, since then, Sonic games have gone downhill with all these new characters - TammieRD

A first video game for many gamers, myself included.

This Is A Good Game Besisdes Whats With All The Freakin Tomb Raider - doughnut

Just the thrill of going through loops at the speed of sound in chemical plant zone is JUST SO AWESOME.

My favorite story out of any game.

86 Mass Effect 3

There's a lot of problems with the endings, such as 'since when could a cain kill a reaper', 'why don't we use the conduit to get on the citadel', why does the red ending kill the Geth (that's making a gray decision black and white) and why does the green and of corse the ghost by one even exist but since the extended cut 'lack of choice' isn't one of them. I don't understand why people complain about that.

Great game! Horrible ending, worst ending ever in gaming history! Amazing til the last 10 min though!

Choose your colour lights for ending.

Shouldn't even be in the top 100.

I refused to play it till I received the patched ending.

87 Super Mario Sunshine

One of the best Mario games. Great mechanics beautiful landscapes and an amazing sound track. So many levels...but today Call of Duty and grand theft auto are over this. Those games have about as much creativity as a bag of hammers. This game is a master piece

Why didn't Princess Daisy replace Princess Peach's role?! WHY?! Is this most likely because of no Luigi in it?

Very fun and entertaining to play when bored.

The only bad thing is the plot but besides that this game is my 3rd favorite gamecube game aka 3rd favorite video games cause the other 2 are gamecube games. - spodermanfan1000

88 Super Smash Brothers - Nintendo 3DS

Sincerely one of the best, if not, the best 3DS game(s) out there! Some games shouldn't be higher than this game.
Ex: FNAF, flappy bird, etc.

89 The Legend Of Zelda

This list is a joke and you should all be ashamed of yourselves.

Why the hell is this game so low? It started the zelda series! Ocarina of Tim's is number 1!

How is this possibly so low?

What has happened to video game lists?

90 Mario Kart Wii

This is my best game ever. I don't know why this game got (worst Mario kart) on some websites well, I think this is the best. Every thing is great about this game is great.

Well, it was obvious this game had no chance at first place if it was competing against ocarina of time. But, this game is so awesome, easily my favorite Mario kart game. I remember when it first came out and it was all people would talk about in school. We came up with the conlusion that the off roader is the best vehicle and of course yoshi is the best character. This game will always be one of my favorites.

This game is way off the charts above the roof - Kingjon15

It's a shame that Nintendo stopped Wifi services. That's the main reason why I loved this game in the first place.

91 Pokemon Black

I think the only Pokemon game above it is Emerald at 38. Other than Emerald, why is there no Pokemon game in a high ranking?!

I loved this took about a week to beat though (not all at once)

It is the latest and is really fun there are lods of pokemon in it and its a massive game.

I think some people who hate pokemon are a big dingus. POKEON the BEST

92 Civilization V

My family and I enjoy this game a lot, having currently invested over 350 hours into it. I know that civ 6 is out, but still, this is still a really good game. At least 30 different civilizations and leaders, each with unique units and troops, natural wonders, and in depth gameplay, it serves as a game I really enjoy.

My favorite part of this game are the city states, which I think, pardon me if I'm wrong, are new to civilization iin this game. You have to gain influence in the city states by assisting them with tasks they give you, such as clearing a barbarian encampment or donating gold. In return, depending on what kind of city state they are such as militaristic or religious, they will give you gifts or support. At 30 influence, they will become friends and give you half of their potential help. At 60 influence, they will become your ally, unless someone else is already, then you'll have to beat them in terms of influence, but, as allies you will get the full potential of ...more

Pretty good if you want to learn about history - RandomGuy456

A fun game to play by yourself or with friends.

93 Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

This is the best game in the whole entire WORLD! No doubt about it!

*Goes Back to playing Grand theft auto and running away from polices. *

How in the world can you people vote for San Andreas and not even have Vice City on the list?

It is the best game I have ever played.It deserves a place in the top 10

Grand Theft Auto 3 is better.

94 Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

As a major fan-boy of the Metal Gear Series, I was disappointed to see this title so low on the list. I understand why people put Metal Gear higher up, but starting an amazing series doesn't make it the best in the series. As an American, I got shafted on the Metal Gear game, so I can't honestly vote for that with a clear conscious.. But this game is a masterpiece. The visuals are amazing, the game play mechanics are smooth, and the story wraps everything so nicely. It's always going to be one of me favorite games of all time. - Strokavich

Please you can't trust the internet all the time. I stuck with thinking if this is better than halo 3 or not just say what you think, I'll count the votes and whoever has more will win. yell out your own opinion

This game is AWESOME, but my CD is broken and when the 2nd ending starts, there is like a CD icon on the top left of the T.V. , if anyone knows how to fix this, please reply to this comment

Hands down the best story telling and visuals of the last 20 years. How is Halo anything above this. Halo is so shallow and single minded

95 Overwatch

Amazing

96 Fable II

Fable 2 is the best game of all time. This game is what sparked my love for gaming. This should at least be in the top 5

Fable 1&2 are definitely part of a legendary game list for me.

97 Dragon Age: Origins

Dragon Age Origins will probably never top a best games list since it has such a limited appeal, however; DAO is still an incredible game with smart combat, an epic story, and a completely fleshed out fantasy world. DAO has some of the best companions I've ever seen in any game. The companions all have fleshed out backstories and personalities and really help you get immersed in the game. The combat is probably what puts a lot of faint-of-heart out of the game (since it requires constant attention and careful planning in dangerous situations. ) The combat is actually very well balanced and if you play on higher difficulties can certainly challenge the genre's veterans. Finally the game has a very well thought out and written story which helps tie the whole game together to be my favorite. Just don't mention Dragon Age 2 which sucks in comparison.

98 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.

It's not my favourite game ever, but this NEEDS TO BE HIGHER!

99 Paper Mario

This is the greatest video game ever created... no questions asked. It completely transformed the stereotypical role playing game - babbott15

Super Paper Mario ties with Super Smash Bros. Brawl & the original Paper Mario as the best Paper Mario game ever.

Love the music and characters so much.

Ah, the nostalgia... - EspioTheChameleon

100 Undertale

This game doesn't deserve to be top 5, but definitely top 10. It isn't one of those nostalgia-preying indie piles of crap, but it's a simple-looking game with a deeper meaning.

Personally, I feel as if it's a game with something for everybody. The characters are deep, and killing them is unthinkable to most. Instead, it encourages you to find other ways to defeat them through pacifism, pleasing the story fans. It's got horror, and quite a bit of it in the form of the Amalgamates and Omega Flowey, making it very interesting and appealing to fans of horror. It even has comedy and a bright atmosphere that most children would love, and they wouldn't even think about the other parts of the story. It's a true kids-to-adults game, having none of the gore and innapropriate stuff, being bright and bubbly, but still sad and deep enough that older crowds are drawn in.

One of the things I can't get over with this game is the fact that it was hand-designed by one guy- the musical ...more

Undertale is a truly beautiful game that I would consider a masterpiece and it definitely deserves a higher place place on this list.

Undertale may not have incredible graphics like some other games on this list, but it definitely makes up for it with an incredible, original, beautiful and deep plot. One of my favourite things about Undertale (Papyrus has the top spot) is the morality. Fight or Mercy? This is the big question that will decide everything within the game, from the music to the characters, and OH BOY DO I LOVE IT! Undertale's morality system is amazing! And there's no way I can explain why I love it so you'll just have to play the game to understand ;)

You may be a bit cynical of its soundtrack due to the intense positive raving that surrounds it but consider that almost every song in the soundtrack has its own unique style and that these songs are capable of conveying very complex and beautiful emotions, not even mentioning the fact that every song is ...more

Come on guys! This game deserves better than 93! I've only played like 20 minutes of ocorina of time but I'm willing to take people's word that it deserves the number 1 spot. THIS GAME DESERVES NUMBER 2! It is my all time favorite video game that I've ever played! (except mabye it's tied with minecraft, I'm not sure) The characters and characters development is so well done, the story is really really good, the gameplay always feels fresh and is really fun, the choice weather to attack or spare your enemies is not only genius, but it changes the way you think about the characters and your actions in the game, and the soundtrack, MY GOD THE SOUNDTRACK IS AMAZING! This is a perfect game if I've ever seen one! The only bad thing I can say about this game is the fan base, but as long as you ignore that, you'll have an amazing experience. Now let's work to get this game higher on the list because it deserves it.

This game is just the best game ever
