  • Let's laugh at this loserish top 100 games of all time list!

    http://top100.ign.com/91-100.html


    Civ got a respectable number in the teens, but this is simply the worst concieved list I have ever seen. Some highlights include Wolfenstein 3D and Simcity both being beaten by Virtua Tennis, a Sega Dreamcast game. Yes, I kid you not, a Dreamcast game.

      Half-Life and Doom made 32 and 44, respectively. This puts them far behind Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, which made #20, or the even higher ranked NHL '96.

        ...and just to show that not all these lists suck, here is a pretty good one:

        Doom, Half-Life, Warcraft II, and Civilization take top honors. Seems pretty fair to me.

          Sorry, but a list with doom at the top isn't a very good list.

            Sorry for posting a third time in a row, but I must continue my rant. 5 of their top 6 are Nintendo games. The last one is Tetris. Is that a sign of clear bias or what?

              Nintendo used to be a nice company.

                Actually I don't care that much about Doom. As long as it's in the top 10 or so the list is OK by me. For some reason, Doom gets most of the credit for being a "historical" game and games like Wolfenstein 3D, Dune 2, Simcity, and others which created genres are ignored. It's not as if Doom was the only game that was around in the early 1990s.

                  hmmm

                  including old atari games and current PC games is no easy challenge.

                  I loved pitfall. But #1? I think not.

                  I never played master of orioin. Very high rating. Was this game that good?

                  haven't played ultima underworld either.

                      Wolf3D created the genre, but Doom made it huge.
                      I'm building a wagon! On some other part of the internets, obviously (but not that other site).

                        whoops. pitfall is #100, not #1 .

                        I figured #1 would be at the top. okay let me scroll down to find out what #1 is.

                        edit: well I can't find a link that shows the top 10. oh well.

                            Of course. But I'd argue that Doom has become a sort of token classic game for people who don't know much about early PC gaming to put high on their top __ games of all time list.
