The Lazygamer Top 100 games of this generation – 1-10

Top 1001

The time has finally come – the top ten games of this generation. We are expecting your bile and vitriol; not everyone will agree with us, but it’s important to remember that this list was based on what made us all happy to be gamers this generation. Not based on sales, scores, fancy metrics or algorithms, we fought it out to make this list, and we hope it just goes to show how many fantastic games we had in this generation.

10 – XCOM: Enemy Unknown (PC, Mac, Xbox 360, PS3)

Xcom eu

Taking an old, but very loved classic franchise and trying to give it a modern overhaul is not an easy task. And yet, Firaxis managed to do just that, and do it with aplomb. Last year’s XCOM: Enemy Unknown reboot managed to capture the very essence of what made the original games so great. 

The war between humans and Sectoids has never looked, or played so well, and Firaxis even managed to make a predominantly “PC” game  feel at home on a console. It reignited gamers’ passion for “smart” games, where every single turn brings with it heightened tension, and the threat of permanently losing soldiers you’ve built up over hours of stressful gameplay. 

You want to keep everyone one of your soliders alive, which means carefully – so very, very carefully – planning every single move, like a very shooty game of chess. And yet, in spite of its difficulty, learning curve and heart-wrenching frustration, it’s immediately accessible. That in itself is incredible. 

9 – Pokemon X and Y (Nintendo 3DS)

Pokemon

As much fun as Pokemon games are, they were beginning to stagnate. Pokemon Diamond and Pearl is a fine example of this, followed by Black and White which succeeded in halting that rot, before an unnecessary sequel infected the franchise all over again.

The various lands of the Pokemon world needed a fresh start. Something more colourful and more befitting the underrated Nintendo 3DS. And by concentrating on the visual and social side of the franchise, developer Game Freak breathed new life into the series.

Graphics don’t make a game, but they certainly helped augment a new era for Pokemon.

8 – Rayman Origins (PC, Mac, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, PS Vita, Nintendo 3DS)

RaymanOrigins 1

Rayman himself, as a character, had been relegated to the background in recent years as his Rabbid spin-off characters hogged the limelight. That all changed this generation when he went back to his roots, in a 2D platformer in one of the most beautiful fluid, and fun games made this generation; Rayman Origins. 

Though it maintains an external aesthetic that paints it as game for kids, Rayman Origins is soul-crushingly difficult platformer, wrapped up in a package of irresistible goofy charm. Throw in four player co-op and this old-school, retro platformer shines. 

Few games have elicited such a feeling of intense player reward, especially factored against its impeccable level design – which makes it feel like everything is just out of reach. And yet, you’ll still try and go for it; every lum, every teensie and every electoon. 

7 – Portal (PC, Mac, Xbox 360, PS3)

Portal

A game with such an immortal reputation like Portal almost needs no introduction. Who would’ve thought that a game that started out as a Digipen school project and thrown into the Orange Box as a last minute extra would be the crowd favourite of the whole collection? Portal is just that good.

Portal is a first person platformer. You play as silent protagonist Chell, a test subject in the Aperture Laboratories headed by the very likable robotic villan GLaDOS. You use a device called the handheld portal device to make a linked tunnel on any white surface in order to traverse rooms filled with obstacles and adorable automated turrets. During testing the story unravels slowly as you find out what you’re doing and GLaDOS’s true intentions.

The game is short, about 3 to 4 hours, but it’s a great time. The gameplay mechanics don’t overstay their welcome and the story and black humour is beautifully paced. It gave weight to the premise that a simple mechanic could be the core of your game, and that simplicity in design doesn’t mean simplicity in depth and storytelling. It truly is one of those ‘must play’ games that everyone talks about. The hype is real, Portal is one of the best games ever made.

6 – Braid (PC, Mac, Xbox 360, PS3)

Braid game screenshot title xbox 360 big

Jonathan Blow became an instant celebrity with the release of his arcade puzzle, time control, emotionally engrossing title Braid. At first glance the game appears to be a blatant copy of the Mario bros platforming experience with an entirely new, and disturbing graphical style.

However the more you play the more you realise the genius behind the time control abilities in the game making it one of the most entertaining and frustratingly difficult games of the generation. But it is still just a decent platformer and nothing else.

Those who haven’t finished Braid are probably wondering how we could rate this the 6th most important game of this generation, but those of you who have realise that this game’s story and plot twists are truly inspirational and something that all games should try and aspire to.

5 – Borderlands 2 (PC, Mac, Xbox 360, PS3, PS Vita)

Bl2shootyface

When you look at game sequels, the formula is pretty simple. More of the same, but with fewer bugs and more improvements. Borderlands 2 took this idea to heart, creating a world that was still filled with more guns than common sense, but by adding so much more to Pandora and ending up with a game that was better in multiple ways.

Guns felt better, had character and were unique extensions of the fictional brands found in the Borderlands universe. New character classes were introduced with branching skill tress that catered to any gameplay taste. The game got a proper story and a villain who was far better than the space-vagina from the end of the first game.

Borderlands 2 is what a sequel should be. Bigger, better and bolder.

4 – The Last of Us (PS3)

TheLastOfUs JoelAndEllie

In a generation dominated by zombie games, most were jaded on the genre by the time The Last of Us was released. However, The Last of Us is so much more than a mere zombie survival game, stretching the PS3 to its full potential for graphics, while pushing players to their emotional potential through magnificent story-telling and character development.

At its core, The Last of Us is a story about Joel and Ellie’s journey across America, years after the “infected” outbreak has destroyed what we knew as civilization. Along the way, they must fight infected/zombies as well as healthy humans who have simply lost their humanity. The Last of Us looks at what would happen to us in the event of an apocalypse, and how our sense of right and wrong might shift accordingly.

Allowing players to choose their gameplay style, The Last of Us sets itself apart from the usual violence in games, showing Ellie’s revulsion towards killing and fear in the moments of stealth. These small details lend the game a heightened degree of realism and immersion. The Last of Us is a fantastic experience in gaming as a whole, let alone on the PS3.

3 – Red Dead Redemption (Xbox 360, PS3)

Reddeadredemption marston3 1920x1080

The Wild West has fascinated people for generations – just look at the masses of spaghetti Westerns. Red Dead Redemption takes players back to those bad old days, when bandits waiting around every corner, horses needed to be caught and tamed and the law didn’t have quite the long arms it’s known for.

As expected from Rockstar, Red Dead Redemption was a revelation in gaming when they released it. The open-world sandbox genre is their forte, and this time they unleashed their attention to detail on an exquisite environment, complete with wild life, herbs and deranged old men with shotguns. Red Dead Redemption gave players the opportunity to take the law into their own hands, or become an outlaw themselves, or just spend hours hunting various birds and animals.

Red Dead Redemption offered players a rich storyline and gritty characters against a realistic and living environment. With plenty of options for all different types of game play activities, Red Dead Redemption took sandbox gameplay to a whole new level. Really, it just let us feel like we were walking around in cowboy boots with spurs on, and that made us all far too happy.

2 – GTA V (Xbox 360, PS3)

GTA V review 13

GTA IV was a well received game that ticked many boxes but that also seemed to lose some of the enjoyment out of gaming and being the good bad guy in the story.

GTA V however recouped that in spades and broke the sandbox mold by not only making an incredibly huge open world game that allowed you to play multiple different games within a game with interweaving story lines and immersive gameplay. But it also brought in the ability to play as 3 different characters in one story. We were worried about whether or not Rockstar could pull this off and make it enjoyable and somehow they managed.

Not only was the story incredible but the characters were insanely entertaining and then you tack on a huge, if slightly flawed, multiplayer portion and you start to understand the scope of this game and what Rockstar were able to accomplish bringing such a polished and massive game to the market.

It’s still but a puppy of this generation but it has already become the sandbox title that all future titles will be measured against.

1 – Super Mario Galaxy (Wii)

Super Mario Galaxy 2

And finally, we’re at our top game of the generation. This choice may prove controversial to many – but only those who haven’t actually played Super Mario Galaxy and its equally gravity-defying sequel. Taking the beloved plumber out in to space may seem like a strange design choice, but it’s one that’s been perfectly executed. 

Pulling of the sort of visuals you’d never imagine the Wii would be capable of, it still stands as one of the most aesthetically beautiful games of the generation, even if it is in SD.  Even if it looked awful (which, to re-iterate, it doesn’t) it would be a masterpiece.. For starters, it’s insanely, wildly creative. Yes, it features a character who’s been in more games than any reasonable person could count, but with each new area the game brings with it a handful of incredible, inventive ideas, keeping it fresh and exciting through the entire game. 

Very few games can even aspire to perfection, and fewer still come close to that impossible ideal. If there’s one game that’s very nearly done that this generation though, it’s Super Mario Galaxy.

Don't stop now.... you're having a good time


  • Lego Witcher of the Squirrels

    Who was it that called Super Mario Galaxy at number 1? Good call lol!

    Nice list LG Staff, I really enjoyed it… and the community arguments it caused.

    • Unavengedavo(aka. MadeYouLook)

      I mostly liked the arguments :P

      • Lego Witcher of the Squirrels

        lol yep… was the highlight of the lists for me

    • http://www.lazygamer.net Gavin Mannion

      Geoff and I pushed for SMG over everyone… that game was an incredible experience and something that everyone needs to play

      • Lego Witcher of the Squirrels

        I totally agree with you and Geoff on that, I enjoyed every minute of SMG when I still had my Wii.

    • Matthew Holliday

      I called it that theyd still find a way to get Mario etc into the top 10

      but im not even going to pretend i know enough mario titles to have called the exact game.

  • Hammersteyn

    Well done Lagz. Very,very nice top 100. Only a few blemishes but if I can take this list of games to heaven I would be very happy.

  • Umar of The Rebellion

    I LOVE LAZYGAMER lol the fact that Braid is 6th….YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME

    That moment at the end when you actually play it backwards and you realize oh sh*t……..This is actually the truth…..GooseBumps AAAAAALLLL OVVVER MY BODAY!!!

    Sweet, I can get behind this list 100 percent

    • Sageville

      Never actually heard of braid

      • Rags

        You can pick it up for $2 on steam flash sale if you move quickly.

  • Lego Witcher of the Squirrels

    I really enjoyed this generation, and the top 7 speaks to me greatly because I’ve played 5 of them and thoroughly enjoyed them all.

  • Lego Witcher of the Squirrels

    I wonder what else Gavin has for us today and tomorrow… seeing as he killed off the top100 lists.

    • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

      Gavin’s ION is going to be a picture of Gavin posting an ION.. that would be freaking awesome!

      • Lego Witcher of the Squirrels

        Lol! And he’s only posting stuff every 2 hours or so… so he’s probably sitting there playing Candy Crush while waiting to post ION-ception.

        • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

          That Candy Crush… Game of the YEAR! :P

        • http://www.lazygamer.net Gavin Mannion

          Nah doing my day job :(… so unfair

          • Lego Witcher of the Squirrels

            Don’t worry, I’m still doing my day job too.

            I’d prefer yours to mine though lol

      • http://www.lazygamer.net Gavin Mannion

        not likely to have any ION’s… sorry about that

        • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

          Noooooooo!!! :(

  • Unavengedavo(aka. MadeYouLook)

    And as a summary, to all those who disagree with the list of games that the lazy gamer staff love… GO MAKE YOUR OWN DAMN LIST IF YOU DIDN’T LIKE THIS ONE :P

    • Lego Witcher of the Squirrels

      Bravo! Bravo! Well Said!

    • Hammersteyn

      Agreed! Except for DA2 and DMC. I really feel strongly about those two. I’d rather replace it with Simcity and Ride to Hell.

    • Rags

      What the fun in that? :D

  • Gustav Minnie

    Called it!

    • Hammersteyn

      Nice One!

  • CaptainNemo42

    Wait, no Call of Duty anywhere? The game series that defined online multiplayer shooters? Or did I miss something?

    • Lego Witcher of the Squirrels

      Obviously no one at LG thought they were good…. lmao

    • http://www.lazygamer.net Gavin Mannion

      CoD came in at 70.. http://www.lazygamer.net/xbox-360/the-lazygamer-top-100-games-of-this-generation-61-70/

      We argued about whether it should have been higher but the annualisation of it pushed it down

      • CaptainNemo42

        Then I apologise. I clearly missed it. My bad.

        • Falcon D. Stormvoice

          I certainly wish it wasn’t on there. DA2 is a much better pick than the game that ushered in the era of brodude gaming.

    • oVg

      7 years :P

  • Corporal Stick

    Nice list! All my favorites are in the Top 20. X-com, Skyrim, ME, Borderlands and GTA V.

  • Corporal Stick

    Can’t wait for top 100 most worthless games list!

    • http://www.lazygamer.net Gavin Mannion

      This list took us weeks… how about a top 10 crap games instead?

      • JJ’s horrible secret (John)

        I will vote for that. Yes please!

      • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

        Go for broke, Top 1000 games of the last 40 years of gaming! :D I can already see Geoff popping a vein hahahaha!

  • JJ’s horrible secret (John)

    Didn’t enjoy RDR THAT much. GTA V, I can’t personally say (haven’t played it yet) but Borderlands and Portal. Yes. Now, if Xcom can just get a good special on Steam this sale.
    Too many great games were omitted though because some franchises were split while others were bundled.

    • Gareth L (That Guy)

      XCOM is at a really decent price at the moment on Steam. Considering that it usually goes for around R400, anything around the R100 mark is a steal. :)

      I bought it on the July sale for about R100, and it’s worth every cent.

      • JJ’s horrible secret (John)

        Thanks man. Will probably get it when I get home (sitting at work where Steam is blocked).

        • Gareth L (That Guy)

          Doh, just checked and it’s R200 at the moment. It could drop down again, but not likely during this sale. There’s a very good chance that it’ll drop down to R100 during the next sale though.

        • Gareth L (That Guy)

          Ha! Just got an email of GOG’s daily sales. It’s R105 from them, redeemable on Steam: http://www.gamersgate.com/DD-XCOMEU/xcom-enemy-unknown?aff=ggnews

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      I want the Enemy Within expansion myself.

      • Gareth L (That Guy)

        Same here, but I’m waiting for the price to drop further. :P

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          Me too heh.

      • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

        Same

    • Falcon D. Stormvoice

      I thought RDR was just alright when I was playing it. Enjoyed it near the beginning, but then the superficial depth of the open world started to grate on me. I guess I thought the ending was more interesting than most, but on retrospect, that was some good storytelling and an innovative way to end a video game.

      • JJ’s horrible secret (John)

        I just found THAT open world to be a bit boring. In RDR’s defense, I played it on my PS3 and not really being a console gamer I felt too detached from it, so it probably deserves more respect than I’ve given it.

  • Gareth L (That Guy)

    Red Dead Redemption at 3. I can live with that. :)

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    I can live with the top 10.

    Overall, I give the top 100 list a 6/10. It was a decent summary of an exciting generation of gaming. There were a number of glaring misses here. DA2 scored way too high. Forza 4 as well. Gears of War didn’t get the love it deserved, nor did Infamous, Resistance or Far Cry, and Skyrim… fuck Skyrim.

    At least, the list sparked a hearty discussion on how shit DA 2 was and that always brings a smile to my face. However, the lack of Dragon’s Dogma is a damn shame… A DAMN SHAME!

    And on that note, I’m off. Have a happy holiday lads, and may 2014 bring you even more gaming pleasure.

    • Lego Witcher of the Squirrels

      Have a good one Banana… check you in the new year!

    • Brian Murphy

      And no Arma or Stalker….big oversights.

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        You’re right, Stalker is a fantastic series.

      • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

        Arma! Now there’s a game that deserves some love.

        • Brian Murphy

          Yeah, both series really flew under the radar for console owners. Which is very unfortunate, they were both extreme breaths of fresh air in an entirely stagnant and decrepit FPS genre this gen. Honestly, I compare all FPS’ I contemplate purchasing to these two IP’s. If they aren’t even close to Arma/Stalker levels, it’s a pass…..unless it’s not pretending to be an industry leader (Like Payday 2, for example).

    • Falcon D. Stormvoice

      Skyrim, best roleplaying experience since Morrowind.

      Dragon’s Dogma definitely needs a place on the list. I understand the flaws that turn some people off, but gaming needs more stuff like Dragon’s Dogma.

      • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

        I prefer Morrowind, but I think it’s because back then it was such a breath of fresh air, (apart from Daggerfall and Arena of course…) but Morrowind (and the Gothic games) is where I cut my teeth. I love that game. I didn’t care too much for Oblivion though, and Skyrim lost what made the Elder Scrolls games brilliant… the role playing!

        It was essentially a pretty snowy sandbox toy with RPG elements. I still hope that they’ll create an Elder Scroll game where your actions actually matter, where you’re acknowledged for being (say) the Arch mage, or where once you reach the top tier (a member of the aristocracy) that the game adds a little more political intrigue. It’s cool to have 1000 quests but if those quests doesn’t change the world, then what’s the point. Sure, Skyrim had the civil war, but that was so shitly handed, that in the end they shouldn’t even have bothered.

        • Falcon D. Stormvoice

          Yeah, that would be a nice touch in the future.

          It sounds like you would really like the Dragonborn add-on.

  • Aussious

    Its ‘Top 100′ list so alot of ppl will have opinions and disagreements, personally I feel rather indifferent it especially the top 10 as I have only played xcom, RDR and Portal on that list. IGN’s list is more aligned with my preference they did rate the ME trilogy #1 on their list and I am unashamedly biased.

    • http://www.lazygamer.net Gavin Mannion

      Everyone should play every single game in our top 20

      • Sageville

        Pffft, #NeverEverWii!

    • Umar of The Rebellion

      Braid is in Top Ten, there is justice in the world

    • Rags

      Do you have a link to their list?

    • JJ’s horrible secret (John)

      I really have to give ME a shot again. Found it boring the first time I played it tbh, but I really can’t help but feel like it deserves another shot.

      • http://www.lazygamer.net Gavin Mannion

        I’m exactly the same.. I couldn’t even finish the first one but I feel like I have to try again

  • oVg

    yes
    yes
    yes

    yes
    AND
    YES!!!!!

    Great list LG. Not a single AI COD fish in sight :)

    • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

      A lack of Cod Fisheads make us happy!

  • oVg

    100 of the best games. 100 x R600 = R60 000.
    Who needs next gen when I bet half of you have not even played half of those?

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      or R50-R200 for most of the PC titles about now ;)

    • Gareth L (That Guy)

      Steam sales, dude. ;)

    • Sageville

      My limit is 1 x console and 1 x PC.

      While Nintendo may appeal to others, it’s just too…. too… kiddy orientated for my liking.

      Still on the anti-next-gen bandwagon I see…. you know it’s really awesome… I know you secretly want one, but pride is getting in the way…. come bru… the dark side of more pixels is calling… One of us! One of Us!

  • fred

    0 – Dark Souls

    • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

      I don’t remember either Dark Souls or Demon Souls being in the Top 100… What the duce!!!

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Dark Souls was on the list, don’t remember where though.

        • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

          And Demon Souls?

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            No that wasn’t on.

        • JJ’s horrible secret (John)

          I can’t help but notice how console-biased this list is. Then again, we had LG’s Steam level 1 people voting, so that probably tells us enough. ;)

          • http://www.lazygamer.net Gavin Mannion

            To be fair we started as a console site so we are still console skewed

          • Falcon D. Stormvoice

            And to be fair, not everyone believes in the superiority of the PC master race. Because some people know that Yahtzee was making fun of PC gamers when he said that.

          • JJ’s horrible secret (John)

            I didn’t say anything about the PC superiority. But now you did. :)

          • JJ’s horrible secret (John)

            Ah. I actually didn’t know that. Fair enough then.

          • Her Highness the Hipster

            who is still steam level 1? i’m already back up to level 10 :P also, i was using this console generation as guideline for start/finish when brainstorming games

          • Brian Murphy

            I’m only level 7, but my friend Nate is level 37, that guy has more steam games (721) than I have all games across all platforms (excluding Roms). lol.

            We play Payday 2 with a guy who’s level 80….dear lord.

          • JJ’s horrible secret (John)

            Lies!

          • Her Highness the Hipster

            are you my steam friend? if not, you should be! (so i can trade with you :) )

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I don’t really mind. Plus consoles have been the dominant platform this generation, despite being inferior ;)

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            There’s two things that show that – no Dawn of War or Stalker.

          • JJ’s horrible secret (John)

            Haha. The Dawn of War was the first one I noted not to be there.

      • Gareth L (That Guy)
        • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

          Damnit XCheese, you saucy wench, how’d I miss that?

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Borderland 2! That game is so fun.
    Portal 1 & 2 were great.
    Xcom & Braid are on the backlog.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    I don’t remember Trine being on the list. RAAAAAAAAAAAAGE!

  • Brenz

    Can you make an article listing 100 – 1 on one page for ease of browsing through them and then raging after.

    • http://www.lazygamer.net Gavin Mannion

      Problem is that Google frowns on that… but I’ve linked them all together with buttons to help

  • hairyknees

    SMG = WINNING!

  • Rags

    Pokemon?
    Do erm people age 5+ play it?

    • Gareth L (That Guy)

      Darryn does, which I suppose supports your case. :P

    • http://www.lazygamer.net Gavin Mannion

      Mass Effect was ranked as a trilogy as it had one long story arc…

    • Richard Gill

      I would also have had Mass Effect 2 as my favourite game this generation

  • andrew

    I’m honestly surprised that the uncharteds didn’t make it in anywhere

    • http://www.lazygamer.net Gavin Mannion

      For me personalyl I just found the uncharted series a bit bland.. but I think you have found a very important piece missing…. it probably should have been in the top 100

      • Stephen Snook

        Totally forgot about Drake

        • Lego Witcher of the Squirrels

          Downvote :P

          • Stephen Snook

            How rude xD

          • Lego Witcher of the Squirrels

            Hahahahaha! I’m sorry, I couldn’t help it ok.

      • Brian Murphy

        Uh, yeah, it probably should have. If any iteration of CoD is on this list, you can’t complain about bland.

  • Admiral Chief in Vegas

    MARIO????

    Dammit Geoff stop hacking the list!

    Also VERY glad XCOM made the top 10, was thinking about that earlier today

    • JJ’s horrible secret (John)

      I’m still shocked that Colonial Marines isn’t anywhere.

  • Hybrid

    Nice list just a little pissed Uncharted 2 is not on the list except if I missed it somehow. Number 2 – 4 was probably my best for this generation. Can’t wait for Jan to download Borderlands 2 on PS+

  • Brian Murphy

    So…not a single mention of Arma 2 or 3, or Stalker? That’s…a pretty big oversight imo. No top 100 list of this gen can be valid w/o them. No major issues otherwise.

  • bowlingotter

    OMG red dead red dead red dead red dead

    Great list of great games. Love it

  • HighlanderZA

    Thanks for a great list. Steam is already taking my money because of the list

    • JJ’s horrible secret (John)

      I know that feel

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Yes, I’m looking at you Skyrim Legendary Edition.

        • JJ’s horrible secret (John)

          I sadly already had the base one, so just bought all the DLC’s on special now. Still completely worth it though as I’m already 20hours into another re-play.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Me to, but it was cheaper buying that than the DLCs separately.

            Ah, I see. I think I’m still short a DLC though, will have a look. I’m still way under my Steam sale budget :) Not sure what I’m going to get. Wishlist still has a few on, but I have a knack for buying games just before they go on flash sales, so now I’m just living from flash sale to flash sale.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Hehe, I just got Skyrim on a flash sale. I’ve really been good, it’s all I’ve bought other than the last Dishono(u)red DLC. There hasn’t really been much that’s tempted me other than Bioshock Infinite, might get that at the end of the sale if it comes up again.

            I bought braid because of this list.

            only five dollah

  • CodeName Tailgunner

    My one and two are Skyrim and X-Com

    But I play pretty much only PC although I own a PS3 and I don’t like shooters very much so my opinion pretty much doesn’t count for shit.

    But hay its the day before Christmas and I’m at work so whatever

    Dafuq Bro!? No Dragons Dogma? This list is irrelevant – Trolololol

  • DrKiller

    I can’t believe Tekken is no where in this list :( Its so much of a better game than Dead or Alive 4

  • Nicholas Forsyth

    OK Im just going to ask quick… Where is Uncharted 2 or 3?

  • A 2 Brute?

    But but, why no Uncharted Trilogy?

    I couldn’t disagree more with this list, but we can chalk it up to cultural differences. :)

  • evilahole2

    this list is spot on. bioshock infinite was horrible. trololololo

  • Itumeleng Manyike

    Great compilation, but the exclusion of God of War is a crime.

    • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

      Absolutely!

  • Vendeth

    Nice to see Rayman Origins take the 8th spot. I thought Legends was better though. I saw a friend play Castle Rock and from that moment on, I knew I HAD to have that game. The only game that really deserved it to be platinum’d
