I don't normally go for these kind of lists, but this one looks pretty decent:

http://gamewise.co/games/top-rated

Loads of old classics in there such as Earthbound, Metal Gear Solid and Goldeneye. Personally I'd like to see Final Fantasy 7 a little higher.

What would your top 10 be?

In before the flurry of complaints about mgs4 and gow3 featuring so high up the list.

Baldur's Gate isn't on it anywhere? Something definitely wrong there.

One of the better lists I've seen imo but it's still missing some gems

MGS4 above Half Life and Deus Ex? Seriously?

Must go through and see how many I've played/own.

On a side note, seeing gow3 mentioned here reminds me to ask, what do people think is meant when they see gow? God of War or Gears of War? Or does it depend on what system you play. I always read it as God of War.

It's user voted so is more a measure of how popular a game is than if it's any good at all. FFVII for example is a good game but there's so many better games in it's genre. However it's a fan favourite so is well up that list. Goldeneye as well, everyone loved it but time has not been kind at all to that one. You can tell it's american centric as well since it's so Nintendo focused.

In other words it's terrible and not really worth discussing at all.

A best games list sans Street Fighter 2 or Doom 2 is a strange one to say the least.
Ive never played Smackdown vs Raw but allegedly its its better than Street Fighter 2. Who Knew?

I'm pretty much a defender of MGS4, but so high on the list, and ABOVE MGS3? Nonsense.

Only GTA game in their top 100 of all time is GTAIV: The Ballad of Gay Tony? Over Vice City and San Andreas? Nonsense.

No Assassin's Creed 2? Nonsense.

I know these things are subjective, but man that's a shockingly poor list.

Yeah man, the list is made by bunching together the games with the highest voter's score average. Some of the games that got in there have as low as 35-40 votes. What happened is that young kids went on and gave top marks to their favourite games, hence, the bias towards newer games and the shockingly disturbing amount of Pokemon games in it. The list is as worth as an empty 7UP can is to an elephant.

Obviously made by a nintendo fanboy, no dungeon keeper on the list means the entire thing is garbage imo
