I think ill change it to greatest, I think that would justify Super Mario Bros. as the best Mario game better for example

Brilliant idea for a list, Dunbrow! :biggrin:

Just a few early thoughts:

Maybe an unpopular opinion but I'm starting to think Vice City and San Andreas should be > IV nowadays though. IV's massive acclaim on release doesn't seem to have lasted as long and Vice City and San Andreas always seem to be the 2 most popular GTA games whenever the discussion of best GTA game comes up.

I definitely think MGS3 should be ahead of MGS4 too and I reckon Peace Walker should probably be the #5 entry over the original Metal Gear.

I'd probably switch the original Final Fantasy with Final Fantasy IV.

Definite debate about the ordering of Twilight Princess, Wind Waker and Majora's Mask for the 4th and 5th spots on the Zelda list, but I'm fine with it any way really.

Not sure about Mario Galaxy over Yoshi's Island. Could go either way that one.

Tbf, you may as well expand the bigger franchises like Mario, Zelda and Final Fantasy to a top 10. Would be awesome.

Other than that looks brilliant! Great stuff. :biggrin:

Here's a Silent Hill one as well.

Silent Hill
1. Silent Hill 2
2. Silent Hill
3. Silent Hlll 3
4. Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
5. Silent Hill 4: The Room

Snake Eater > Guns of the Patriots

Total War

1. Rome
2. Medieval II
3. Shogun II
4.
5.

I haven't played any of the Empire or Napoleon games, so feel free to correct/add to this list.

When I was planning to put on Silent Hill, I think thats exactly the order I would have put them in (but i hate the idea of Silent Hill 4 being on a "best" list)

I liked The Room personally. It was flawed, sure, but the concept was brilliant and although it dragged a little I generally found it quite absorbing. Obviously isn't as good as the original trilogy though and I still really need to play Shattered Memories.

My inclination is to put SMB3 above SM64, but it's a tough call. Both were absolutely amazing and completely groundbreaking games. I was under the impression, though, that 3 is a bit more acclaimed.

Halo 2, I believe, should be above Halo 3. 3 didn't really innovate anything. Halo 2 really set the standard for how console games, especially console FPS's, were to be played online. Because of this, it had an enormous impact on the success of Xbox Live while it still had yet to make a name for itself.

I actually think 6 is underrated, but top 5? Nah


1. Mega Man X (SNES)
2. Mega Man 3 (NES)
3. Mega Man 2 (NES)
4. Mega Man V (GB)
5. Mega Man 4 (NES)



and +1 for putting SMB3 over 64.

1. Rome
2. Shogun
3. Medieval II
4. Medieval
5. Empire

It's a tricky one. Rome I think is indisputably the greatest, making the jump from 2D to 3D amongst a whole host of additional features. Shogun gets major points for kickstarting the franchise. There's not much between Medieval and Medieval II: both developed on their predecessor and increased the popularity of the Total War Games generally. I chose Empire over Shogun II to round out the list because A) It's a period that hadn't been done before 2) the increased scope of the map, which I think will be important in future titles and C) the long overdue addition of naval battles; problematic as they can sometimes be, they make the game that much more immersive than the auto-resolved sea battles of previous games. Napoleon also missed out because, although I have a huge soft spot for the period, it's a step back compared to Empire, feeling more like an expansion pack than the stand alone title it purports to be.

That's a flawless analysis.

I put Medieval II higher because it's my favorite of the series and I'm biased.
