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

81 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

82 Mortal Kombat

The most famous and entertaining fighting game ever. MK ruled in the 90's and still looked great in the 2000s. Mortal Kombat (2011) is another achievement for this franchise - Magnolia

My vote has to go to MK. Definitely my favorite game of all time. It's just fun to play, and that's what counts. - wyattoelkers

Mortal Kombat is the most violent and exciting game you'll ever play with a great story and interesting characters mortal kombat is the best fighting game period. - ScorpDevil4

Best fighting game ever! It's better than SSB, Marvel vs. Capcom, and Street Fighter!

83 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.

84 Golden Eye 007

THE game that started it all. The most popular shooter of the 90's. I'm not taking away from the others with the unfair advantage of better graphics but this game takes the cake.

This game established the birth of great multiplayer gaming. It is the best bond movie of all time and the game is even better.

The legend the is Golden Eye. The game that paved the way for all other first person shooters. Humanity has evolved around this game...

It's the best and always will be.

85 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)

An underrated game. VERY underrated. - mangamango

86 The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

One of the most exhilarating breaths of fresh air I've seen in a long time. Definitely deserves to be higher, and glad it made this list. Definitely the best Zelda title since Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. After Skyward Sword and a Link Between Worlds I didn't think I'd get to play another amazing Zelda title that made me feel the way Ocarina of Time did growing up, but oh I was so wrong. Nintendo you outdid yourselves this time, looking forward to what the future holds for Zelda, but as far as Breath of the Wild goes, it is a must play.

Even though I don't think it's the greatest game of all time, I do hope that this game eventually reaches a rank somewhere around the top ten. Because this is the best Zelda game since Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. It has a perfect harmony between gameplay, environment, and story, and it's a really fun and challenging game to play. As someone who grew up playing Legend of Zelda games all the time, in my opinion, this game is near-perfect. - tonyb500

Best game ever you can explore and hunt and it has dlc and more awesome stuff like the fact that you can cook nearly any 2 things together 1,000/10 best game ever no denying it

This, Ocarina and Majora should be the top 3 on this list

87 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.

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 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 Batman Arkham Asylum

One of my favorite games of all-time. This game terrific. I recommend it to anyone. Go BATMAN! - FootballDog61

This my favorite of the arkham games

My favorite story out of any game.

91 Animal Crossing: New Leaf

Needs to be higher. This game is without a doubt, the best Animal Crossing game of all time!

This is a game where you are the mayor of a town and you have some animal villagers.

I'm Callie from Inkville; I'm improving my town

Best 3ds game ever - ShaunFan04

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

Its an amazing game, too bad that Metal Gear Solid V drags everything Metal Gear down the drain.

This series has an amazing legacy and this game shows the peak of its series and should be a much more recognized piece of video gaming history.

93 The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

It is sad how low this game is. Deserves to be within the top 5 at the very least. This game really hit the nail on the head. The story was captivating with interesting characters. The world was unique and detailed. Gameplay was fun and challenging (in the beginning). While I do realize that games like Ocarina of Time were instrumental in the development of the gaming industry, it would be disingenuous to say that those games are better than the Witcher 3 based off of pure gameplay, story, and atmosphere.

Oh my lord the stupidity of people who voted for other games hurts me. This is by far the greatest game ever made. Best world ever, best characters ever. Top 3 all time visuals, top 3 all-time story and top 3 all-time gameplay. Ocarina of time? This has better gameplay better world and better story. Mario? Same thing.

WHY IS THIS SO LOW?! The best graphics in any game in the world hands down, such a rich and thriving open world, the best RPG ever made, cool variations of combat, strong characters (especially Geralt) and an awesome story! One of the best games ever made and it deserves to be on the top ten at least!

Far better than Assassin's Creed: Origins in every way!

94 Age of Empires 2

Why so low? This game helped me pass history back in school times.

Way better than half the games up there

Simply the greatest game of all time. - RingoStar

This game is BS

95 Battlefield 4

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

I love this game. It is so fun.

Freezes/crashes every ten secs

WHY THE HELL IS THIS SO DOWN HERE! It's THE BEST GAME OF 2013! EVEN BETTER THAN Grand Theft Auto 5 TO SOME EXTENT IN MY OP! VOTE BF4 GUYS

96 Rome: Total War

The best strategic game

97 Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag

Definitely without a doubt the best assassin's creed game but not the best game on this list

Massive open world and great story, along with fun gameplay makes this game the best of 2013

I like this game a lot

The best assassin. at least top 25 - frikian

98 Mega Man X

This is one of my favorite sues games, and undoubtedly the greatest Mega Man game. It was such an upgrade over the original series, in graphics and gameplay. It's os different from the original games, but still has the classic Mega Man feel. This needs to be in the top ten.

Mega Man X: Bull after Mega Man X3.

Anyways, imagine a Mario X, a Mario X2 & beyond.

Also, Sonic & Mega Man crossovers should've never happened unless there are Sonic & Pac-Man crossovers.

99 Grim Fandango

This game should not be forgotten. Best adventure game and one of the best games ever by Lucas Arts, made in 1998. The script is perfect, graphics are really good for its time, controls are easy. This game is a total classic.

But Lucas Arts couldn't do the advertisement right. So it's underrated. - xanjr

This game started the golden age of adventure games. The very game that grim reaper forged with his own scythe. Oh the quality, there are no such a gameplay in any adventure game. The best game ever made by mortals.

Best RPG premise ever: no other Tolkien derivative or shooter comes close. Anyone that doesn't agree can be written off your friends lists as a dolt.

Thank goodness for Telltale Games for the Point n Click resurgence.

100 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

99? Why? Did people forget of the best snes games over the horribly aged n64 games? - DensestPotato
