Top 200 Video Games

Top 200 Video Games

Tuesday, Dec 1, 2009

So I just got my new issue of Game Informer and in celebration of their 200th issue they have named the top 200 games of all time!  They took into account quality, cultural relevance and industry impact and here are just some of the surprising things I have noticed from their list.

  1. 5 of the top 10 games were made before 1990
  2. 5 of the top 10 are for Nintendo systems (not surprising as they were the  most popular game system in the 1980s)
  3. 4 PC games in the top 11 with WoW bringing up the rear.
  4. I apparently like really bad games!  My two personal favorite games (possibly more for nostalgia's sake than anything else weren't even in the top 100).
  5. Pong was number 158!  The classic, the first!  How could it rank so low!?
  6. Guitar Hero barley made it into the top 50 at number 49.

What would your list of the top 10 games ever look like?
