What are some of the most commonly referenced "Greatest Game of all Time?"

I feel like every week a new post comes up asking what "The Greatest Game of all Time" is, and people post their opinions, but I wanted to make a thread to compile what appears to be the most commonly accepted Greatest Games are.

I'll start:

1. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
2. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
3. Chrono Trigger
4. Final Fantasy VII
5. Doom

I only wanted to list 5 to see what other people bring to the table. Feel free to add and challenge!

I'd add Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction and Warcraft 3, and second the World of Warcraft nomination.

UFO: enemy unknown (known as Xcom - UFO defence in the NA)
Baldurs gate 2.
Final Fantasy VII
Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Super Mario Bros 3.

There's more that could compete for the "Greatest game ever" spot, but those are the top 5 that I though up.
Not my personal top5, I wouldn't pick any of those in it.
