Of course it did, it was like the first RPG! Can't beat the originals, man. Well you can, but they deserve to be up top because they came first. Without them nothing would be like we know it today. (You'll notice the top ones are primarily oldies :P)
Yeah, you guys should pick of the magazine or something if you get the chance. I finally got the time to sit down and read it today. Good stuff.
only 86 games of the list were made after 2000 that's 43%, 78 in the '90s (39%), 35 in the '80s (17,5%) and one in the '70s (pong, 0.5%)
but in the top 20 the 45% belong to the '90s and the 30% to the '80s... great decade for playing the '90s
While it seems pretty asinine anyway to rank games, I still think this list is rather bullshit. And Fallout is ranked 117??
But like I said, it's asinine anyway. On what criteria are they ranking these games? And how come not one Wing Commander game is on there? And do you have the link to the original article of this? I wanna see if they say anything else about it.
I hate predictably games like Zelda, Mario, Madden, and ugh...Final Fantasy.
And why the fuck do people pick Pac Man except for purely nostalgic reasons? Pac Man even for an old game, is incredibly boring and stupid. And Diablo II better than Diablo I? I think the writers at Game Informer are eating too many SlimJims.
Yeah they went off a lot of dif things to rank these games. One important thing was the impact it had on today's games and society. Like Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto III... huge impact on society. I still dont think there is a more controversial game out today.
GTA III is controversial though for the stupidest of reasons. Mainly because you can beat up people in the street, including old ladies and hookers. I'm surprised more people didn't recognize what they were doing as merely trying to add shock value to their game.
Really. It makes little sense to rank games that are across multiple generations and platforms.
Great Zelda got number one, too bad I've already played it, even if i wanted to play it again where the hell am I going to get a NES, not to mention going back THAT far on games, just doesn't feel right.
It's like going from riding in a car all your life to a horse drawn buggy. Or turning off your lights and having to carry a lantern around.
