81 The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

It's a beautiful, sprawling, and open-ended game that lets you play pretty much however you like as long as you're willing to fill in a few blanks using your imagination. One of the best RPG games ever.

As the years passed, the importance of these kind games are getting forgotten. I always get upset about this fact. - xanjr

What the hell is this game doing at #90?!? The best experience I, and countless others, have ever had was with this game. It's unique and engaging world, with amazing dungeons and characters to meet with plenty of enemies, quest, and place to find and explore, and its amazing storyline.

I wearno nostalgia glasses, and I am talking Morrowind Vanilla. This game is beat, even today. Kids of this generation might never understand...

It's sad see that a masterpiece like this is so low in this list. I don't even born in the time of the old school games.

Don't worry, they may well remake it in time.

82 Deus Ex Deus Ex

Deus Ex is a hard game to get into in the Modern Age, no doubt. But if you push past the Older aspects, you'll be absorbed into a world where your decisions really matter and not from some button prompt, from actual gameplay. If you do play it though, don't play it as an FPS. It is more of an RPG and if you run in shooting, you'll end up dying straight away.

One of only a handful of games that I've truly felt immersed within it's digital world; the others being Metroid Prime, Shadow Of The Colossus, Ocarina Of Time and (oddly) Donkey Kong Country (it was the music! ). It doesn't take fancy graphics or even an open world for a game to feel immersive; it takes a perceived notion of freedom and a whole lot of atmosphere. This game's artistic and technical achievements were stunning for it's day.

a fine classic, but very underrated.

the last grand work of ion storm.

really addictive and active gameplay.

what should a geek wants more?

Despite being 16 year old this is one of the best game ever made among my top 5 at least. A fantastic written game, with good choices, a brilliant story, great atmosphere, great characters, good setting and fantastic hybrid between stealth, fps, and rpg. Must play

83 Shadow of the Colossus Shadow of the Colossus

Absolutely gorgeous, well executed, and a game that needs no words. It is timeless, and it touches you, seeing these massive beasts die by your hand. Seeing Aggro fall was an Old Yeller moment, a gaming moment that will live with me.

In my opinion, this is the best game ever made (with all due respect to The Legend of Zelda).

As you dig further into the game, your actions aren't met with an emotional feel of triumph. When you finally drive your sword in for the killing blow, there's a sense of sadness. You've ended something beautiful, something without Malice or rage.

Shadow of the Colossus is definitely one of the best games ever. I can't think of any game that has this epic and involving story without a single spoken word from the hero. Shadow of the Colossus deserves to be called video game art.

Why isn't this game higher? Great game!

Probably the most unique game of all time.

84 Far Cry 3 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).

Amazing game, should really be higher

85 The Walking Dead 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

100! Really? This game deserves to be #1. The story is hands down the best of all video games ever made. I understand some people want repetitive shooting games but not even in top 10?

Legendary Game, great story! I'm giving it a vote just for Lee two. R.i.p

86 Civilization V 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.

87 Pokemon Black 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

88 Super Mario Sunshine 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.

This should be in the top 10 one of the best games I have ever played

89 Half-Life 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.

90 Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots 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

91 Dragon Age: Origins 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.

92 Pac-Man

This game is (in my own perspective and hands down) one of the best arcade game to hit the 80's gaming industry. You play as Pac Man while eating the dots, and avoiding ghosts. If you eat all of the dots, you'll advance to the next stage for the next stages after the first increasing in difficulty. However, only the most insane people can get up to level 256 (the split screen glitch level), so this game is considered one of the most influential video games to have an impact on the gaming industry in the 80's and the game is still playable and a masterpiece to this day - Bunearylove75

I wasn't born when this game was made in fact quite a while later but this is by far the best game ever. Just look at the simplicity of this game its almost as if its the chess of the video game generation. I could see myself playing this game for years to come.

When I can still play a game at an arcade or at home or on my phone several decades after it was first released, that equals best game ever. Most of the games ranked above this one will come and go, but 30 years from now kids will still be playing Pac-Man.

I love this game and great in the arcade

93 Mass Effect 3 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.

94 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

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.

You know why I hate other gamers? They don't know what's good. This game has the most amazing thing you could want. You well be working on the character voices for a month, humming the songs in the middle of work, thinking about actually giving to bake sales because of spiders, and we'll get thinking about things. This game is not a game for internet trolls, this game is for people who are smart, compassionate, abservent, and funny. Is that not enough? But if I say one thing about the story, it well ruin it! I'll tell you two words: Goat Mom

Definitely should be in the Top 10. Amazing story and characters and super fun gameplay (especially bossfights).

99 The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

THIS IS THE BEST ZELDA EVER! I LOVE THIS GAME I GOT IT A FEW MONTHS AGO IT IS AWESOME SO AMAZING ONE OF THE COOLEST GAMES I. EVER!
PLAYYED!

This is my 4th favorite game of ALL TIME! That is saying a lot if it makes my list. I love Legend of Zelda so much, and this is my favorite game for the series! I only finished it 6 weeks ago, and I miss it so much! And at the end of this masterpiece knew I would miss it, so just before beating Demise to the pulp, ran round Skyloft one more time, revisited the three dragons (What happened to Din? ) while of course prancing through the 3 worlds, as well as flying through the Thunder Head once more (Never has riding Levias been so enchanting and awesome) and never has stabbing a Final Boss been so satisfying. This beautiful game deserves to be in the Top 15 - 30! I LOVE IT!

Skyward Sword is right up there with Ocarina of Time as my favorite game of all time. Vote for it. It is a fabulous game.

One of the first video games I have completely finished, and one of my personal favorites. The world is beautiful, colorful, and lively. The characters are fun, Ghirahim being my personal favorite, and the story and cinematics are just beautiful. Nintendo, keep up the good work

100 Paper Mario 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.
