  1. According to their logic,they have listed multiple pioneering games to their genres.Fine by me,but Half Life 2 and Super Mario 64 should be in there.

  2. Well this is sure to settle everyone down, and put an end to all future disputes.

    For what it’s worth, I think what’s in the top 10 is a lot better than most people’s top 10 all time lists.

  3. I love retro games, I generally prefer them to modern games, but honestly, the number of retro games in the top makes me want to automatically discredit this list since it’s mostly just another “most influential” list.

    Zelda 1 is my favorite Zelda, but there’s no way it’s better than every other entry in the series.

    1. “Zelda 1 is my favorite Zelda, but there’s no way it’s better than every other entry in the series.”

      Strongly disagree, and happy to argue the point. Zelda 1 is the best Zelda. Number of features do not denote quality in a game. Settlers of Catan is not superior to Chess.
