Well, not bad considering they picked Deus Ex, or Football Manager (as flawed as it is).

Lol, to me it was expected, so just seeing Deus Ex in such list is a big feat in itself :lol:

Lol, you never played it? It was an arcade soccer game from early-to-mid 90s, one of the best of its times, if not the best. It was flagship game on AMIGA systems which were huge in Europe.

Far to many modern games to be the "best of all time"

Call of Duty 4? HA! :roll:

:lol: Oh dear.

i dont see the problem, FIFA 09 is the best football game whilst FM 2009 is the best FM game. And sensible soccer, hopefully they are talking about the Amiga version which was outstanding.

I mean i would not even think of having a football game in my top 20 but they are casual and british so i can understand.

#18 Posted by Cherokee_Jack (32198 posts) -

I just noticed there's no Mario platformers on the list. I first thought they would put the original SMB at #1, like most lists written by idiots. CoD 4 is even worse.

You my friend are missing out, the AMIGA had one of the best games ever Alien Breed! and lets not forget Lemmings, made by DMA, who are now Rockstar North, yes thats right the people who made lemmings made GTA, oh what a wonderful world we live in! :D

#27 Posted by Scoob64 (2633 posts) -

Thats the most disgraceful top games of all time list I have ever seen...


Fifa 09, Football Manager, Sensible World of Soccer, Call of Duty, and Worms made the list...

yet- no StarCraft, WarCraft 2, Street Fighter, Mario (not even 64 or Galaxy...), Soul Calibur, Tetris, Biohazard, Dragon Quest, Phantasy Star, Sonic, anything SNK, Virtua anything, etc...

simply amazing...

#28 Posted by ___gamemaster__ (2415 posts) -

COD4?? yeah its great but all time?? big NO. that title belongs to either ocarina of time or FF7.

#29 Posted by thegoldenpoo (5136 posts) -
Mario Kart Wii ahead od Deus Ex :| that game was a slightly simplified Re-Hash. Yeah THIS is why the casualisation of the console world concerns me.

no halo 3 isn't a fail, and only the ps3 version of fallout 3 is a fail, the 360 versions fine,lol at cows calling halo 3 a failure, let me know when KZ2 actually starts outselling it.

The PS3 version of F3 was patched and practically the same as the 360 version. It is also getting the DLCs, so there's almost nothing that differences both versions.

Scoob64

this is a popular radio station, playing pop music, do you really expect it's listeners to have played starcraft and warcraft 2?

there are some strange choices on the list, but it's audience is young to mid teenagers, so while tetris and mario would win on other list, on a list made by 13 year olds they wouldn't have really played them. Considering the audience it's not too bad of a list.

yes but halo 3 is quality, maybe not to you but officially an excellent game if we go by gamespot scores,even if you don't like it, it's a critically acclaimed title with more than 8 million sales, to say this game is a failure even if you don't like it is just blatant fanboy nonsense, then again you are entitled to your opinion, cos thats all it is really.
#42 Posted by skrat_01 (33767 posts) -

There are some great games.

But the sorting is rather HORRIBLE.

But its BBC I suppose, blegh.

Seriously Deus Ex and Half Life 2 lower than Halo 3 and Goldeneye AND Call of Duty 4 - as far as shooters are concerned?

What?

Ugh.

Dumb, dumb, dumb.

Sales are not an indication of its quality, and no one is *calling* it a "failure". Quite frankly as a piece of design, its singleplayer alone is horrid compared to the likes of Deus Ex and Half Life 2. The multiplayer however is the most redeeming aspect - its great, but not great enough to push it beyong two such defining titles. Hell Deus Ex and Half Life 2 are on a whole different level of quality in terms of design in many respects.

No, I don't think "MK Wii > Deus Ex" (I don't recall having said anything that could possibly indicate I do). I'm just not "concerned" if some people think otherwise.

Same story with Halo: CE, Halo 3 has nothing on the original for how good it was at the time, hell even today i would rather play CE's singleplayer than Halo 3, the game feels so spongey and limp, like everything is made out of soft plastic.

firstly, read the whole forum, he put in red all the titles he thought was a fail and halo 3 was one of them so, yes some one was calling halo 3 a failure, secondly i can agree with you that deus ex and half life 2 should have come above halo 3 without question, half life 2 being one of the defining moments in FPS history with a single player campaign that is unmatched by any other FPS on the market.

No, I don't think "MK Wii > Deus Ex" (I don't recall having said anything that could possibly indicate I do). I'm just not "concerned" if some people think otherwise.

Maybe i should exapnd on my point, compaines like MS or Sony tend to take these type of more mainstream polls deadly seriously, im not saying people can't like them more (im sure it's just down to the ammount of new Wii gamers it's there, that's not waht concerns me) I'm saying when compaines try to casualise (ie why i said casualisation) they tend just to think in these terms.

MS, Nintendo and Sony have been thinking "in these terms" for quite a long time by now. And I still fail to see what's so concerning about it.
