    I have only played 42 of them...

    As usual, some of these are questionable to say the least.

    This list is awful. So many games here don't belong, and so many are missing. No Smash Bros, Sonic or Pokemon? FF12 is their "best" FF game?

    7/10 too much water.

    Also--all games from 2017 should be barred from lists like these. The Last Guardian and Horizon are sitting pretty high, when it's likely just because the writers for the magazine recently enjoyed them. Games need more than a few months to see if they stand the test of time.

    EDIT: there's a clear FromSoft/Souls bias, BOTW is too high, no Sonic games. I usually let lists like this slide, but this one just seems to be even more glaringly wrong than others that I've seen.

    Edit x2: Her Story is on there. Literally invalidated the whole list with that pick.

    Super edit: I've played 40 of those games. And I just noticed--no Final Fantasy VI. Wowza.

    No Megaman and Sonic? And how can Fez be "better" than The Witcher 3 for example? How the fuck...

    How old were the people that made this list by the way? Most of these look to be releases from the last 15 years, with outliers such as Ocarina of Time. I'm probably younger than them and I've played games older than they are.

    This hurt my feelings a lot.
    Also, no Chrono Trigger.

    They chose to include Final Fantasy 12 and not any of the other FF games?
    Already at 97 this list lost all credibility.
    And while I do love BotW, I don't think it's the best game of all time. Maybe the best Zelda game. Maybe.

    Zelda BOTW should not be number 1 in my opinion. And there is NO other FF aside from 12 on that list which is just dumb. At least there is persona tho (but again no P3 or P5). No SMT games. Alot of the games on that list were mainline series entries, so i am not surprised by the rankings.:mellow:

    Any list of best games is subjective. This could never be my list.

    Woo I've played 80/100 of these! I need to get out more...
    Lists are lists, only your own list would ever make sense. Couple of eye-openers on here for sure but mostly a good set of games!
