    It hurts me seeing a game like Vanquish behind games like The Witness and Kerbal Space Program.

    It's really easy to see this list as a total bullshit when you can't see something like Chrono Trigger on it. But of course, it has Her Story. And Fez. And Nidhogg. And Towerfall Ascension...

    The more I read it, the more I'm getting annoyed. So Sonic 2, Super Mario World, Street Fighter 2 Turbo, Mortal Kombat 1-3 or Trilogy, Mario Kart 64, Super Smash Bros. Melee, those games don't stand up today? Again to the age of these listmakers, these relatively young games stand up because most are in an era where graphics are pretty well off, and story is probably given more investment, but the basic foundation of gameplay stretches far beyond, I don't know, 1997? And 8-bit/16-bit graphics, a lot of them hold up today, getting lost in the level designs of classic Sonic games and the scope of Super Mario World.

    And I didn't even bring up Pokemon, my bread and butter, but I don't want to type a rant for something like this.

    In a wastebasket reading my neighbor's mail
    I'm not seeing Mario Galaxy 1 on here... it was better than the second one.
    (Also, how is Minecraft better than friggin MARIO 64) This list ain't reliable. As said before, NO SONIC. And BOTW isn't the best game ever.
    EDIT: I'm also noticing a real lack of N64... So many great games, but there's only like one on there

    They took a bunch of games and pulled their name out of a hat. This list is trash with no thought involved at all, but we are talking about it so they are making money. I guess that's what really counts.

    Many of those games shouldn't had to be on the list, and many, many others are missing...

    Don't know about the facts considered to put a game on the list, but they really need to play some games and stop playing junk ones.

    please don't read...

    please...

    noooo



    hexagon first? it's not even a game to me. how can it compare or even be an entry in the list compared to great game with actual things to do ?
    I didn't even read the rest of the list, seeing that this game is considered the best one of all time ..... it means all others are trash and you shouldn't even know/play them. good to know.

    oops, let me hide in a hole....
    (I'm used to "first at the top" lol)


    I played 39/100 (not completed all of them, just already played once).
    No final fantasy 6 or Xenogears or secret of mana? :sad:

    I detailed it in a blog post, but I've played 35/100, owning a few more of them but haven't tried them out yet.
    I don't agree with much of this list. I really enjoyed Her Story, but it would never go near a top 100 list for me. No Chrono, No FF except FF12...

    Whilst there are a few games that genuinely belong, the vast majority simply have no place. Whilst a lot may have been good games at the time, I wouldn't even place them amongst best games of their era.

    Probably the worst and least accurate best games list ever.

    Whilst this is my opinion (and the list was likely made based on the opinion of one individual at Edge, with a limited games list no less ) my opinion is much closer to the majority, which a best games of all time would / should represent.

    Not really the best games of all time if 5 billion people aren't fussed on them, but one guys loves them.

    E.T. in top 5?

    Eh, lists like these seem pointless to me. Totally subjective.

    That, and 'best 100 games of all time' is just way too ambitious of a list...

    also how did Super Hexagon even make it on to the list
