Your Top 50 Games of All Time Lists

Post by Ghost World » March 31st, 2013, 10:23 pm

A few of us have been messing around on twitter making are top 50 games of all time lists and I thought it was about time we put them up on the forum for all to see!

This is just for a bit of fun so why don't you make your own and share your choices!

I would stress that these are our/your favourites, not what you consider to objectively be THE best 50 videogames ever made (as if any one person could make that call anyway).

This is a work in progress as there is one to many new games in there but it's as good as any place to start.

Go easy on me as it's hard to whittle down so many games from my 25 year relationship with the hobby, also there is a number of games in there which I have strong connection with due to playing hours of the MP with my brothers back in the day or friends over the internet.

I loved doing this list of my personal Top 50. Compiling an actual list of the best games would've been tedious to create and also to watch!

Enjoy peering into our souls!

I imagine the moment I finish Bioshock Infinite, I'll hate my list.

There's no way I could put together a top 50 any time soon. May well post a top 10 though.

An incredible list! Nice to see a healthy stock of SNES games on there.

I'd find a top 10 as hard as a top 50 - not that either is easy, mind you. There are always too many to cut.

Great idea. Listed the top 10 without too much thought needed, and the rest didn't take too much more, though I'm sure I then missed a load, and in retrospect will want to re-order. Anyway, I think this turned into my fondest gaming memories top 50, and confirms I'm an old saddo with sometimes dubious gaming credentials...

Like it, probably the first time I've heard the mention of some of those games in decades. Might have to rethink mine now the memories have started to flood back in.

Certainly the most surprising list I've seen. No BioShock titles, no Fallout 3, no Mass Effect, no Half-Life titles. Think it's the first top 50 I've seen that doesn't have at least one of those in.
