    I'm offended because they put Persona 4 Golden instead of Persona 5

    Did a ctrl+F and was disappointed that only @Tom Bombadildo made a 7/10 joke.

    This is such a cheesy generic list though. BotW best game of all time? Alright Edge, pat yourself on the back.

    I mean honestly though, what about BotW puts it 23 places higher than Horizon?

    Oh - my - God ...

    Who even gives a shit anymore? This biased, semi-recent crowd pleasing turd of a list should destroy any and all credibility Edge has left. Not that they are credible, or an authority on anything else than the sales of their useless magazine, but apparently there are still people out there who believe Edge is a thing to care about. Close this thread, please.

    BOTW first? Seriously? It is not even the best Zelda game. Oh well, the hype train is still going on. In a few years time, it will get its rightful place between the other masterpieces, just like all the previous ones too. On another note, Limbo, Doom (2016), Rock Band 3, Hearthstone, Dota and Splatoon? GTFO!!

    VVVVVV should have been on that list instead of super hexagon.

    I was expecting to have played less of those games. I've played 90 on that list.

    Did you read EDGE's review? They had serious hard ons that could not be quelled for BOTW.

    The Witcher III is placed at number 56? The Witcher III is beautifully crafted, the most impressive, and most "soul-grabbing" game I have ever played. It does not belong at 56. I personally believe it was better than Breath of the Wild. I would give the game the number one spot. It certainly did not deserve 56.

    Yes, that is exactly what my comment was. Thank you for clarifying that.

    I don't care about the subjective aspect to this list so I won't complain about X game not making the cut.

    However, this list has problems on a fundamental basis, as others have commented. It's simply because it goes against its own guidelines, several times (!). It clearly states that historical impact and nostalgia counts for nothing, which woulda been fine if they'd manage to stick to that. I'll give my examples of confusing and contradictory choices:

    1. Any of the games that has a clearly better remake - RE4, SotC, ICO, TLoZ OoT/MM/WW, FFXII, Skyrim, TLoU, CoD4, Okami and there are probably some I missed... You might ask why they should bother writing Resident Evil 4 HD Remake. Here are my reasons: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Ultra Street Fighter IV. These are simply upgraded versions of already great games. MK8D isn't even an HD remake. It re-adds the feature of 2 items.... Basically, this list is inconsistent.

    2. Tetris - They said historical impact doesn't count so... find a more polished version then. Don't you dare telling me this is the definitive version to play..

    3,4,5. Puzzle Bobble, Bomberman, Puyo Puyo - Same reason as Tetris

    63. Sleeping Dogs: Cop and Friends - This is not a very prestigious list..

    And there are games I'm not familiar with, though I do question some of the other choices like:

    Dota 2 AND LoL - Are they THAT different??... Then again there's 3x Souls games and 3x 3D Mario games. I guess Dota 2 and LoL are at least as different from each other as those are.

    Splatoon vs Splatoon 2 - Do any fans complain about the first being better? Maybe the sequel is too recent?

    Anyway, making a list without accounting for historical impact is nice because it gives unexperienced gamers a quick idea about older games they might be able to enjoy instead of having themselves play games that simply haven't aged well.

    However, this also means this list requires more frequent updates as better iterations/sequels of games come out, like what they've done with Doom, and, what (I imagine) they'll have to do with Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate when World releases.

    LOL it is definitely is hard to quell hard ons:evil:, so now it makes sense then as to why BOTW was #1. Dont get me wrong it is a great game but definitely not worth the number 1 spot.
