Not because the game itself is that bad, but it managed to ruin the entire MMO genre . Can't tell you how many good games were turned into "WoW clones", it's like the entire MMO market is some WoW knock off now.

You're always going to have that "follow the leader" mentality when something becomes wildly successful.

And frankly, given what came before WoW, I'll take the current state of MMOs over the tedious grinds and non-instanced content of the past.

Psychonauts is the best game ever. By a very large margin.

It's been scientifically proven that Tetris is the best game ever.

There's too many genre's out there and best is always relative. But I'll say it is hard to argue that it isn't one of the most successful games ever created. Few other MMOs I think are able to say they had/have the subscription count or lifespan of World of Warcraft.

These are all opinions of yours truly, BUT! There is a common theme to all the games and series i have mentioned. At one point or another they were the most played game of their time, their genre, their gaming system and revolutionalized the way we play those games since. They each brought with them unique gaming aspects and elevated the way games were made and how they were played.

There is no ONE single greatest game.
There is no Spoon. The cake is a lie. The Marmot is Puntable. The Ook is in the Dooker. The Niners are going to win the SuperBowl. I am not a robot. Gir is god. Dailies will be the end of us all.... and absolutely, positively no barking like a seal! It upsets me ^_^

Considering the Jaws theme is best known for building suspense and indicating an imminent situation is about to arise.... and this is a "best ever" topic on the internet?

Did anyone honestly not see where this isheading?

zelda? like just all the games? or you just being a tool?

I'd say the best games ever made were:

Link to the Past
ChronoTrigger
Megaman X
Mass Effect
Skyrim


BOOM roasted


There is only one zelda game that nintendo remake with a different coat of paint every few years.

yes i do, but i really really wanted to add BoF and DQ so i threw that J in there. Cause i love em <3 See even I'm flawed on deciding which games are the best. its all subjective... perhaps we should just concede to the Tetris guy...
