New Vegas is so much better than Fallout 3, just saying.

List is both super s*** in general (lol fallout 3) with brief hope spots (shenmue 1/2, planescape, bloodlines) to me, but terminal failure at number 1; not that I'm saying it should have been Deus Ex or that I don't like TLoU, but clearly fanboyism and hype put it there. Actually entire top five is stupid in general, sorry oot, but you aren't top five goat either

I'm guessing they put games based on how they influenced the medium considering they have Doom and the first Halo on there.

If it's top games of all time, it should solely consider fun factor.

Meh PC exclusive vs. non-exclusive is a minor detail as far as I'm concerned.

I think there are so many great games there is no correct list like this.

6. GoldenEye: 007

To each their own, but those are some seriously thick nostalgia glasses there. I adore the game, I really do, but it has not aged nearly as well as some of the others on the list. It's a classic to be sure, but number six??

Again to each their own as well, as I found Hexen to be my favorite (modified) Doom engine game. The thing is though, all of those spawned from Doom and so encompass Doom, so I wouldn't complain about that. For that matter I think Doom 2 is better than Doom... but again that's almost a standalone expansion pack. The level file format is even exactly the same. That reminds me of the random Rice Chex Doom engine game (yes I'm serious that exists).

Is it my turn to wear the nostalgia glasses, or are the Jedi Knight games underrepresented in things like this? Some of my absolute favorite FPS games of all time are Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight, and Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. I never played Jedi Academy yet. Dark Forces was a competent Doom clone but the series really shined with the last few games. Bonus points for Jedi Outcast being made by the developers of Hexen, which makes me think my love of both those games is not a simple coincidence. The title of those games is hilarious on a Wii U level though. Who other than fans would know Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast is actually Dark Forces III?
