    I think that in all the Edge polls since Zelda was released, it's come top.

    I don't know why, it's an awful game, yeah, good in it's time, I really enjoyed playing it, but I played it again recently, it hasn't aged well. There are plenty of games better than OOT.

    I wouldn't rate any of those games as the best.

    I voted for Tetris nonchalantly. I agree about Halo--it isn't better than the classics. There is a remarkable lacking of PC titles on the list as well. Quite skewed as well when older games such as Goldeneye 64 and Baldur's Gate is missing. But the publishers at EDGE are evidently too young to recognize a good, fun game even if it hit them in the face.

    Zelda, OOT is obviously the best. What puzzles me is how HL2 managed to make it into the top 5 but HL1 was a no show.

    i honestly dont understand how any game other than doom could be number 1 considering the technology limitations at the time

    FFXII i do have it but havnt played it yet maybe i should!
    but ocarina of time give me a break

    Not that I'm a fan, never played WoW. But does the millions of people who play WoW not matter? or does that exactly mean that it should not be on a list here?

    Anyway everyone knows that the best game ever was/is Digger

    Halo? HALO!?! What is that bullcrap? Even rabid fans of that piece of junk shooter should be prepared to admit that it's at best a decent shooter, and certainly nowhere near the best game of all time. Sticking HL2 in there is a pisstake too, HL1 was far far better if you compare them relative to what else was out at the time. Voted Card Joe was right simply because for me it has to be either Morrowind or Deus Ex.

    Agree with specofdust to an extent. Morrowind was an inventive masterpiece, but had too many flaws to a "best 100 games ever". It's successor, Oblivion, is damned close to what I would call gaming perfection. So for me, Oblivion or HL1.

    It'll be interesting to see the entire list. Can someone buy Edge and type it all up? I have no money.:naughty:

    Personally, I would have put Metal Gear Solid, Goldeneye, Final Fantasy VII, and Streets of Rage up in the top ten.











    Yes, Streets of Rage pwns you all.

    Super mario world. The main reason been the memory of playing it, when we used to run home from school, put our homework to one side and sit and play it for the rest of the day :D

    Its sad not to see goldeneye or FFVII in the top 10.

    Megaman III should be on that list, if only for its music :)

    Best single player: Metal Gear Solid
    Best Multiplayer: Diablo 2
    Best FPS: Quake 3

    Really not a zelda fan in any way, but I can understand it being in the top 10. Halo and Resident Evil however shouldnt even make top 50 imo

    No Order:
    Final Fantasy 7, Half Life 1, GoldenEye, Mario 3, Metal Gear Solid, Doom (people still play the original!), Sonic, Street Fighting II, Resident Evil 2

    (That's 9. The tenth slot I'll give to Zelda. I've never played it, but some Zelda game always makes it on the "greatest games ever" list.)

    (Also, shouldn't EverQuest or WoW be on there? I'm not a fan of WoW, I find the graphics childish and boring, but there are a few MILLION people that would argue that with me. (However, I'll still be playing GuildWars and Lineage II.))

    (I think it should be based on originality and genre defining. To that extent, maybe GTA: III should be on there?)


    PS - Mega Man should be in there some where... I never said a Top10 was easy to make accurately. XD

    Sorry, HL1 should be higher than HL2, and I think Final Fantasy XII should be higher up there, as it is bl00ming brilliant.
