    3. Bioshock
    2. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
    1. Super Mario Bros.
    So, I'm sure we will all disagree with at least 70 of the games listed (specially with the order of the first 10, or with some of those being there alone).

    Regarding the top 20, I for one can't understand how come Bioshock is there while System Shock 2 isn't, how the original Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Bros, Asteoirds, Goldeneye, WoW and Ms. Pac-man ranked so high while there's no Half-Life 2 and Quake there, not to mention there's only one Final Fantasy, and it's VII, meaning there's no I, IV, VI, X or XII (although I'm sure some of you will disagree with one of those I mentioned and think there should be another one, as always ).

    Other thigns I disagree with are that there's only one Metal Gear title (Solid), that Wii Sports is there, that ME2 isn't high enough, that Angry Birds is there, and many other things.

    I think Bioshock is in the right spot. I'm also surprised Grand Theft Auto III, Quake II and Civilization II weren't up near the top too.

    Im not going to disagree with the list seeing it is their opinion on the matter. Its about the games that matter most to them, so Im not going to be in an uproar of "OMG why is this game ranked higher then this game" rant. My list would be entirely different and people would rant the same way about it as well. But the most important aspect in my opinion is how well a game is developed and what it means to you, what was the first game you plyed, what game do remember the most, what game got you started on a certain genre, etc. Thats what I base my list of games on, the list G4 provided has no bearing on me as it is thier opinion.

    When this came out right after G4 - I pretty much gave up on it after 100 was announced, that's how bad of a list this is. There have been a lot of these lists recently, but if you're going to allow people like Soulja Boy (who if you watched the show this was announced on, declared every third game "HIS FAVORITE!!!" and "BEST GAME EVER!" with equal input as industry inside people, you're going to end up with one gigantically shitty list).

    Pong is arguably, as equal in importance as Super Mario Brothers is to the landscape of video games and all of the reasons why they put SMB on a pedestal, should have been equally applied to Pong, which was video games' first breakout hit. If it wasn't for a game like Pong, there would never be the rest of the list, and to put it at a bookend is just idiotic.

    It's a modernist take on "The Top 100 Games" and done with not enough input by people who know gaming, and a bit too many casual inputs. There is never going to be a list that gets made that is ever going to make people happy, or even a majority happy, but I remember as this one was coming out and it's aftermath that there were a great deal of people (intelligent people, who can substantiate an argument with a foundation of decent reasons, data, and analogy) that were just livid than individuals who thought the take was alright.

    I normally don't get worked up at all at these lists myself - but as I stated earlier, by the first entry alone and once 100-96 were stated, I was done with watching the show and read up on it later, because I knew this list was going to be ridiculous (and I really don't like hearing casual fans [I.E. celebrities without jobs] trying to quantify what is supposed to be a greatest of all time list). I came off early on feeling like the way this list was handled was with about as much care as "I Love The 80s".

    I don't agree with some of the games chosen (and their rank), and I also can't believe they didn't choose some (God of War 1/2, GTA: Vice City/San Andreas, and many more).

    But oh well...

    No one is going to agree 100% with the list (or any other list for that matter), but that doesn't mean we can't argue or point out things we disagree on. If everyone simply thought "That's his/her opinion, so I will shut up and let him say what he wants", we would live in a rather boring world, wouldn't you agree? So you might as well add some opinions of your own, regardless of them being different to those of the list or whoever is posting here.

    Yeap, I was amazed the only GTA they listed was 3, but then again you can't have every "important" name up there, since it's only 100 games.

    Oh yes, it's like one of those music-related lists VH1 comes up with in which they interview people completely unrelated to the music industry to name which song is the best of the 80's or of a specific genre, giving the list even less credibility than a "Best Game Ever" poll on Gamefaqs.

    Oh lists, lists, lists. I had to check G4 to see the 'criteria' for it and they failed so hopelessly. They say it's supposed to be a countdown of greatest defining moments but wait, no it's the greatest 100 of all time. Make up your mind G4 whoever you are. Truthfully I think I saw 5 minutes of that station at a friends cause they had satellite. No clue why they get all the hype they get. I don't even know what they are about. What the fuck does G4 even stand for? Are they suddenly going to feel fly like a G6?

    These lists are all null and void and pointless because, extending off of what Rubi was saying, there are truly 3 defining games that changed the industry. Pong, SMB1, and Tetris. How you rank them is up to you, but those are the top 3. Every list I've seen has SMB1 as the #1 so its pointless wishful thinking reading a list like this. "Oh, is SMB not going to be #1 anymore? Come on, countdown go faster...#5 nope, #4, nope, #3 nope, #2...awww shit, SMB1 is #1 again. Maybe next year."

    The only thing that is in this list I would agree with is maybe Goldeneye and the Original Mario being in the top ten every thing else is out of order or doesn't belong. But that's just my opinion which no doubt someone else would disagree with.

    I love lists like this as they serve as trip down memory lane and made me want to bust out the NES, SNES, Genesis and all of my other systems that are sitting on the shelf. I don't really have a problem with the list for the following reasons.

    I'm glad they went with the classic definative representations of several series like Final Fantasy VII (although I like the English FF III the best) and the first Portal game when Portal 2 is actually in my top 10 of all time simply for how awesome the writing is.

    The top 10 seems fairly right on as Shadow of the Colossus was the best game on ps2 in my opinion and Bioshock is my favorite of this generation.

    I think pong bei ng number 100 was there way of saying that it easily could have been number 2 to SMB1 if the list was "most influential."

    When I heard about the list I wrote down my top 10 gaming favorites/memories off the top of my head just to see how many made the list at all: Portal 2, Shadow of the Colossus, Mike Tyson's Punchout, Mario Kart, Bioshock, GTA III, Blades of Steel, Hitman, Psychonauts. I was shocked Blades of Steel made the list and I figured Hitman wouldn't.

    Realize that Super Mario Bros is always going to be number 1, just like Thriller is always going to be number one on the best music video list. It's just the way it is.

    Lists like these are horrible most of the time and there's no point in arguing over the games there. Needless to say, I do not agree with the list at all.
