It must be that time of year again when Edge magazine announces its Top 100 Videogames ever and expects everybody to care and act surprised.
The line-up for the top ten hasn't changed much recently, with only one recent addition and Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
retaining the top-slot. Still, it, if nothing else it is interesting as a talking point - so gather around the watercooler with fellow geeks and discuss the top ten line-up below.
- The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time (N64)
- Resident Evil 4 (Multi)
- Super Mario 64 (N64)
- Half-Life 2 (PC, Xbox)
- Super Mario World (SNES)
- The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (SNES)
- Halo: Combat Evolved (Xbox, PC)
- Final Fantasy XII (PS2)
- Tetris (Multi)
- Super Metroid (SNES)
According to Edge (via Kotaku
), the list was based on readers votes and feedback from developers, as well as personal opinions.
The full list of the top hundred games will be released in a 260-page magazine which will hit the shelves tomorrow.
Personally, we'd have to disagree with some of those titles in the list. Halo
in particular may have a lot of fanboys, but just doesn't rise above Deus Ex
, System Shock 2
or Planescape: Torment
/ Baldurs Gate II: Shadows of Amn
in our books - but then maybe we need to play something which isn't an RPG every once in a while.
