    The 100 best games to play today (acording to Edge magazine)

    Note these arnt what they are saying are the best games of all time
    Link to the thing
    It means that you’ll find many games that did so much to inspire and direct videogame culture and design missing.* ‬Our selection process quickly made clear the effect of the insatiable march of progress,* ‬new titles building upon the successes of older ones to better effect.* ‬That’s why you’ll find few* ‬8bit games in the list.* ‬Elite,* ‬which this year celebrates its* ‬25th birthday,* ‬isn’t present,* ‬for example,* ‬but Eve Online is.* ‬Which is not to say that all old games are out of the picture.* ‬Certain games are remarkably resilient to time,* ‬with the Zelda series in particular proving its exceptionally consistent quality.

    Where's Kingdom Hearts and Dragon Quest 8. Those games are much better than Grand Theft Auto and The Sims 2?

    Not in the list as its not your personal opinion of what games are good

    The lack of Mega drive games is a worry

    What's with all the games that are less than a year old?

    I can't believe I used to think Edge was cool.



    I never add friend codes.

    Only 1 sport game in there, which doesn't even deserve to be there!

    I got nothing...

    I seriously think some games deserve to be there: Okami, World of Goo, Kingdom Hearts, etc. I know it's an opinion, but you can't say that these games haven't left their mark on the industry, and compared to some of those games they are much more enjoyable.

    I am also disappointed that of all the pokemon games they chose yellow. Arguably, I'd say the most complete and enjoyable was silver/gold.
    Also disappointed at the placement of some games. Brawl jumps to mind.

    On the other hand, I'm glad to see some deserving titles on the list. I was glad to see WarioWare Inc. and Geometry Wars, both being very addictive games.

    OOT being placed top in a games countdown? That's a first.

    Simon Cowell, what a dick.

    That being said, ISS (the original, of course) should be in there.
