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 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)

Earthbound is easily one of the if not the best game ever. It has its own style that I doubt no other game will ever have again.

My favorite story out of any game.

84 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.

85 God of War

The Gods of Olymus may have abandones Kratos, but not this game! - moonflash

38?! Is it possible that the game with the best graphics of all time is top 38? Impossible! Kratos, your revenge ends! Kill all the people who didn't voted for you!

The most baddas game ever very good plot awesome combat and great character make this game and franchise best ever

I really loved this game as a kid, it should be high up but I mean its voters, haters gunna hate right?

86 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 is this game on here but not on the worst games of all time list? This is easily the worst Mario platformer game. It had boring levels, bad gameplay mechanics, terrible unresponsive controls, and for some reason Mario slips off every platform that you land on unlike the other games. Nothing about this game was good. This game is actually the worst game I have ever played. - YakkoWakkoDot

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

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

87 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 Call of Duty

This game sucks! It's also overrated.

The first shooting game I ever played was Call of Duty the big red one

It's waaay overrated dudes

That isn't even a GAME! it's a franchise - Gamefreak23788

89 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

90 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.

91 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 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

93 Mass Effect

It is immensely difficult to find a flaw in this game.

This one and 2 were really great. - htoutlaws2012

This list is great.

This list is awful mass effect number 1!

94 Super Smash Bros

I can't believe this game is in top 100. This game deserves the top 1 spot and gets 100+/100 stars.

I remember the Ad when Mario started the whole thing

I love stuff and feel so sorry for the dog hunt duo

Love it til this day or even the future - spodermanfan1000

95 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.

96 Rome: Total War

The best strategic game

97 Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest

How come this isn't even on the list? It should be in first place! In fact only the soundtrack would make it be in the top 10.

Best Donkey Kong game EVER! The music of this game is great, especially the Brambles area and the Ghostly Grove stage. This game is way better than Tropical Freeze! Diddy and Dixie Kong make a great tandem! :D

Yea this game is so amazing I loved the bramble levels

Why is this under Roblox?! - Himalayansalt

98 Battlefield 4

My graphics card blows up whenever I insert the disc but the 10 seconds of gameplay I enjoyed.

Freezes/crashes every ten secs

I love this game. It is so fun.

99 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

I'm in love with this game! MKWii is very different game from the rest of the series. it brought new mechanics like Tricks, Bikes/Wheelies, and many more. The community is great. the game is so loved that when Nintendo shut down online servers a group of cool people made custom servers just to bring games like MKWii and Brawl back. Granted only professionals play now.

100 The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

This is a very underrated game, not gonna lie. But for me, this definitely isn't the best Zelda game of all time, let alone the best game of all time. I have mentioned on other sites that gameplay isn't the only thing that matters in a video game. Skyward Sword is an example of why story isn't the only thing that matters in a video game. Because its story is amazing and it has a great environment (albeit not perfect). But the gameplay is...not very inspiring. - tonyb500

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!

Underrated Zelda game, because of motion controls. But, if you don't care about those, this is a very solid and clean game. 9/10
