    My thoughts?

    You people are ridiculous. Have any of you PLAYED Ocarina? BAH! And so many current gen games up top? I know we're in a golden age of gaming, but seriously. COD4? MGS1? Uncharted 2? How many of you people are actually still playing this shit and still love it? BAH! I'm old and angry!

    Discuss.
  • Hooray! We are really mainstream!
  • Some questionable things on there, but everyone's got their opinions. KOTOR should be #1, but I'll take it.. At least there's 40+ other sane people in the community.
  • Well since I voted MGS1 as my #3 game, I have to take exception to your calling it out. First off, it's twice removed from being "current gen", and second to answer your question, yes I am playing it right now. I just downloaded it over Christmas for my psp go. :D

    I do agree there are some undeserving current gen games on the list, but did you SEE what Locke put as his #1? Sacrilege I say.
  • I thought Ocarina of Time was SHIT! The controls for the N64 were shitty to begin with, so that didn't help much stacked on all that boring and frustrating gameplay. How can you vote for a game with the Water Temple, really!?

    My top 10 was hardly close to the top 10 of NT, as a matter of fact, the first game on my list was #20 on this one. My #1 game was Sonic 2 for the Genesis, which was probably the oldest game on my list. I guess nowadays, NT users are looking for graphics, features, and game-developed story. Fallout 3, Bioshock, Uncharted 2 have lots of action, good graphics, and considerably interesting storylines. You can't really say that there was a developed plot in Sonic 2 or Donkey Kong Country 3, but that's where my own personal opinion takes place; I would rather have a quality platforming experience over some drama-hyped and mediocrely-written storyline. But then again, it's personal opinion.

    Sunflower, thanks for putting this list together. I remember your discussions in the IRC that it wasn't all that easy. This was a fun way to get lots of us involved and to see what sort of gaming community we are. Very neat event.

    You didn't even vote! Shame on you!
  • Rock Band makes it into the top twenty, that's more than I could have asked for :D
  • I never even played Ocarina of Time, probably because I never owned an N64. This list is a bit disappointing for me since it is quite mainstream, but a Zelda game did come in as number one so I cannot complain. It isn't like Halo was NoobToob's favorite game. Of course Little League Championship Series would've won out if more people have played it, that game rocks.

    Thanks for all the work you put into this Sunny, it seems like the community really liked this event and lots of people put a lot of effort into it. My hat goes off to you.
  • It will be interesting to compare this list to the the Noob's Choice awards. I have a feeling, based on what people posted, that some games ranked above others on those awards while they ranked below them on this event.

    I was just sayin' - the current gen stuff was mainly for Fallout 3 (which DID make my list) and Uncharted 2 (I'm a hater) so it raised my ire.

    I am glad both of those trumped FF7, which is an outdated, archaic, poorly-written and bad, mechanically, game. UGH.

    Still! I rage! Still I rage!

    Not a single Dynasty Warriors game on there. :(
  • A few of these are surprises to me. TWO MSG games? Ocarina of Time? Everything else on that list I can understand, though I may not agree with. Those three however are a surprise to me. Ah well. I'm still gonna go enjoy my Halo and Dragon Age...and when I visit my parents I'm STILL gonna go play Adventure!! :D

    Well, MGS3 certainly deserves to be on there, as it was the best of the entire series. :D
  • I'm the only one that voted for some of my choices. I lol and my own game tastes!

    To that point. I'm not completely sure as I never went through everyones posts on the voting thread. But Final Fantasy 10 was either left out or put down as Final Fantasy 1 (simple typo). It's at 6 points if you want to have a look.


    Thanks for this sunflower. It was really fun making my list (and hard!) and it's great to see how they all fell into place. Even if I was the only one to vote some of them hehe. Expeshally pac-man! Damn it! Why am I the only one that likes pac-man? My #1 game ever too, play it every week or something.
  • Well my 1 and 2 made it onto the list, so Im happy about that, but everything else...blah.

    Also, imo, if any Zelda deserves number 1, it's Link to the Past on the SNES.
  • I agree with Fuzzy: If nothing else, this seems to have been an interesting way to get to know the community better!

    As for the rest of the survey results... you asked for our opinions and got them. Sorry dude. That's the thing when everyone votes for obscure titles.... they only get one vote each, no matter how good they are to you. Therefore, it doesn't seem strange to me that mainstream titles get the votes...more people own these titles and play them. For the record, the only game of mine that's in the top ten is Mass Effect. Not that I'm surprised or disappointed. I know my taste in games is not what everyone else shares.

    As for the #1: I just wanted to say I voted for the original Legend of Zelda. Not to be confused with Ocarina of Time, 4 games in the series later. Imagine a seven year old girl in pigtails, playing a NES with thumbs going like little maniacs on the controller for hours in a basement on even sunny days. That's what the original game did to me, OK? That's what spawned the legacy, right? Just so we got that straight. I think some of our younger padawans on the site might have missed out on the real deal, and therefore simply don't know why Zelda's so bloody popular, so they vote for what they know. And respectfully, what THEY like. The young'uns do outnumber us, don't forget.

    Cheers; thanks again Sunny.
  • so, hm, not to call anybody out (sunny, hah!) but who exactly totaled these spreadsheets? cause i'm calling shenanigans! fable 2 is listed with 1 point. 1 point. i had it on my #5 which gives it 6 points right there. i know i know, doesn't make much of a difference and i'm really just busting your balls right now, maybe i'm just so incredibly awesome that i caught the one and only error? lets hope so :)
  • How did Bioshock get so high! =0

    Actually you did catch my error - Fable 2 should be listed twice on there, I'll fix it and combine the two once I return from lunch. FUCK!

    EDIT: Fixed, they were in the wrong roles I believe. Now I'm worried. :(
  • I feel bad for not voting. I started to work on a list and then lost it in my finals rush. >.<<br />
    I'm really shocked at the top ten though. None of the games in the top ten would have made it into my personal top ten. It makes me feel...really old. None of them are bad games by any means, though.

    I'm really disappointed in the lack of love for Earthbound, Super Mario World, and Secret of Mana. I still play these games all the way through at least once or twice a year. I think my SNES is going to go weep.

    It's a shame where SMW ended up. Earthbound deserves to be in the gutter though, in my opinion. What horrible shit!
  • Ocarina truly crushed everything, that raw data is intimidating. UC2, Fallout3 and Bioshock all made the top five, so I am happy. The nature of any emerging tech is that the last two years are going to overshadow the rest of it. Space War would always win the historical importance argument and The Sugar Hill Gang is forever.
  • May I request that the the word 'greatest' in this thread's title be changed to 'favorite' so it matches with the topic we're getting all the data from. It may not sound like a big deal but there really is a big difference between what a person considers to be the greatest and what is their favorite, for instance even though I didn't make a list if I did I would have put Kingdom Hearts 2 at the top as my favorite game where on the other hand I'm not even sure it would show up at all on a list of what I think are the greatest games of all time.

    FF10 is on there, it came in 11th place with 55 points.

    Oh, no you di-n't!

    Actually. Yeah. I can see why people wouldn't like Earthbound as much as I did. Especially nowadays with more variety of non-medieval fantasy RPGs. Back then, though. That was a pretty big deal to me personally.

    It was still a pretty decent game. I had a lot of appreciation for the quirk factor.

    But no Super Mario World? That's blasphemy. Are we seriously getting to the point where we have people who haven't played the SNES?
  • Half of the top 10 are current-gen, and they all have come out in the span of 3 years. I think that says a whole lot on how this cycle of console it truly something to behold.

    And WTF Mass Effect beat out Metal Gear Solid 3. I mean come on.

    I think his list proves that we have a young community.

    If we ever do this again, it would be interesting to get voters to put down whether they are under 20 years old, 20 - 29 or 30 +, and then we could see how the top tens change with the age difference.

    I'm guessing that we'd see three very different top tens if that was the case with only 2 - 3 games on multiple lists.

    CRC

    P.S. Good work Sunny - noobie for you!

    I don't think age had that much of an impact on the results, I mean Sunnys choices had five next-gen games in them.

Howdy, Stranger!
