10 years. GameFAQs has been around for 10 years. The mind boggles.

As part of our 10th Anniversary celebration, we're asking you, the users of GameFAQs, to select the 10 Best Games Ever. Not necessarily your favorite games or the most important games, but simply the best games ever created. And then, just to make it interesting, we're challenging you to guess what everybody else will choose as the best 10 games.

In order to determine the overall score, each vote for a game in first place will receive 10 points, second place 9, and so on. The 10 highest scored games from all valid entries will be our Best 10 Games.

The contest winners, from first to tenth, were:

  1. LinktheAdept (Score 11, Tiebreaker 25)
  2. ImpactPlayer (Score 11, Tiebreaker 16)
  3. Procyon_A (Score 12, Tiebreaker 25)
