Japan: TV Asahi names Zelda Breath of the Wild the best video game of all-time

Japanese flagship station of the All-Nippon News Network, TV Asahi, has produced a viewer-based feature on the best video games of all-time. The list, which was comprised of over 50,000 votes, is certainly interesting and unexpected as there is a number of fairly recent video games in the top ten. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Nintendo Switch system was voted as the best video game of all-time . Here’s the top ten games voted by viewers of TV Asahi:

  1. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  2. Dragon Quest V
  3. Final Fantasy VII
  4. Animal Crossing: New Horizons
  5. Splatoon 2
  6. Dragon Quest III
  7. Super Smash Bros Ultimate
  8. Chrono Trigger
  9. Final Fantasy X
  10. Super Mario Bros. 3



    1. What’s even more of a stretch is that New Horizons is up there, as it’s not even the best game in the series.

      1. New Horizons is the best when it comes to customizing the landscape but falls short in practically everything else. The first game remains the most comfy to me.
