Super Mario Galaxy

#2 Edited by B4X (5660 posts) -

Good choice.

I enjoyed dark demon souls series more though.

#3 Posted by uninspiredcup (12929 posts) -

IGN is the best.

#4 Posted by lostrib (42996 posts) -

Wow, TLOU was 3rd

#5 Posted by LadyBlue (3985 posts) -

How ignorant. SMG2 is the better choice.

#6 Edited by freedomfreak (43727 posts) -

I really thought TLOU would be it.

Is there a proper list? Don't feel like clicking through a 100 pages, as much as IGN would love that.

The top comment has the list, IGN hid it for some reason though.

#8 Edited by Blabadon (28556 posts) -

Easily a great choice, but Super Mario Galaxy 2 outclasses the first one in every single way possible.

I can live with that. I loved both SMG and SMG2. They both have the highest scores on metacritic.com with 97 each. Even The Last of Us can't beat that.

LOL of the top 20, 3 exclusives are for wii including #1 and 3 for ps3, 0 for x360, quality game library lems.

On a side note, dark souls #23 wut, it should be top 10

Mass Effect & ME2 were both exclusive for the 360 when they launched.

GTA IV has a 98,good thing metascore isn´t the criteria to define this.

Just checked the full list, can't believe Fallout3 and Skyrim are in the Top 5

#15 Edited by iambatman7986 (838 posts) -

I can agree that between Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 they were the best games of the generation. After that I would go with the souls series.

Each page probably gives them like $1000000 in advertisement.

@lostrib: As a list on a whole, it's alright, as an ordered list, it's dog shit.

#20 Edited by PhazonBlazer (11994 posts) -

The fact that Dark Souls is only #23 is kinda stupid though.

Winner: Skyrim

their rankings don't even match up with their own ratings. TLOU is a 10 ("Masterpiece" according to IGN) but is 3rd. While 1st and 2nd are 9.7 and 9.5 respectively. And then SMG2 which also got a 10 from IGN, in which they basically state it exceeded SMG, and sits at 20th.

#25 Posted by freedomfreak (43727 posts) -

@Krelian-co: Thanks much, man.

List is filled with great games. Yeah, I could go on about the order of them, but bleh. Nice to see them acknowledging some games like Spec Ops and State of Decay. Did not expect them to be on this list.

reviews are the opinion of 1 person, i think this list was made by several people.

Yeah, since no one thinks it deserved a 98 score, which is why it's not #1. It's also not exclusive.

#30 Posted by Blabadon (28556 posts) -

@lostrib: The ratings are individual though. Like, who didn't know Colin the Sony nutrider was going to give The Last of Us a 10?

The list is probably a group collection, so I'd imagine the group discussions probably included the vocal minority that says SMG2 isn't as good because it didn't as much of an impact.

Fuck impact.

yeah, but it's still the official stance of IGN. They should at least try to be somewhat in line, especially when their number 1 game was out done by its sequel (according to their site) and they ranked it 19 places below

Well if they were going off of impact, then fucking COD4 should be 1st or 2nd

NOPE,

TLoU should have been #1.

#34 Edited by sibu_xgamer (340 posts) -

Yep the 360 was severely lacking in quality exclusives. I really pitty those who were suck with that machine alone, they missed the best of the last generation.

#36 Edited by silversix_ (16264 posts) -

More like the game of three hours... after that it gets old jumping on mushrooms and collecting mushrooms. Game of 7th gen is Demon's Souls and if you disagree you're a soccer mom!

LOL Halo 3 at 82

I guess this just confirms all those raving 10/10 reviews it received when it came out where just hype and paid reviews paid by MS to sell X360 consoles

When it comes to SMG, of the little I played, I found it severely overrated. Portal 2 is very high aswell. Overrated trash imo. My GOTG is definitely Dark Souls followed closely by RDR, GTA V and Journey. I still have yet to play TLOU. The game is taking forever to come down in price in my country

So UC3 is 60th, does that mean all of its 10/10 reviews where just hype and paid reviews by MS?

Metal Gear Solid 4 was at 59, that was my overall vote but nice to see Mario Galaxy at number 1

the opinion of 1 person can be vastly different than that of a group, i don't see the problem with their list being different than the scores.

lol and where did I mentioned U3? Oh you thought because I was trashing Halo that I would give a fvck about Uncharted? lol I may be a cow but even I ackowledge Uncharted is just as overrated. I prefered the new TR to Uncharted and I've no prob in admiting it, cause even if I support playstation I still call things as I see them. So yeah, sony probably bought reviews aswell. Not that I give a fvck about it

Only a complete braindead idiot and a philistine doesn't recognize this list contains a smorgasbord of 360 exclusives or its console exclusives.

But then again most people here haven't even played any games that scored less than 9.0 here, even if it would have been. 8.5

I was wondering why you chose to pick on a single game from microsoft.

Still unsure how this list from one website "confirms" that all reviews were paid for

Based on that logic, Demon Souls, MGS4, UC2, heck even TLOU since it lost to SMG and Portal 2 while being the most awarded game ever, are now all confirmed to have been just paid reviews
