I can see Mass Effect series vs Grand Theft Auto series. Whoa that going to be a very close match up. Im rooting for the Mass Effect series.

Huh AC and ME are still in the list? Lol Batman? It's more like a poll for games that are 3-4 years old. Where is the Metroid Prime series? Or Smash Bros franchise? Damn I even think Pokémon should be there since it's so popular.

people stop arguing, we all know it's gonna be elder scrolls and gta.

.yeah i would love to see ac there, and mass effect, but looking at it objectively, gta and elder scrolls truly are the two best series..

Only Mass Effect have best line story, best characters, graphic evolytion, your own ship, romance and much more. This GAME deserve to WIN...............Because SHEPARD sarifice himself to save the galaxy. Tell me one character who do that. Thats all from me... MAKE YOUR TRUE CHOISE.............

There's actually a a great many people who just cannot get into the MGS series. Like me. No matter how hard I try to get into those games, I just can't. They just don't grab me and suck me in. I'm generally bored within 20 minutes of playing MGS. But they're good games.

Mass effects is the greatest game of all time ! Too bad it's gonna loose because there are too many people out here who vote on stupid nostalgia or how many insanely boring side quests a game has.Because they only have money to buy one game a year and they only play games like fallout where you have 100 hours of gameplay.

If it doesn't come down to Elder Scrolls vs. Mass Effect, I'll be surprised... And at that point? Things are going to be difficult...

GTA series should be in the top 3. It innovated open-world/sandbox gameplay big time.

I said this over and over again, the voting system of gamespot is just broken.

I picked Mass Effect over Zelda.  If we're talking about greatest game series of the DECADE, then Mass Effect easily trounces Zelda.  Zelda hasn't had mass praise and excitement since Ocarina of Time, and that came off of arguably the best game in the series(Link to the Past).  If we're talking about -that- decade, Zelda did phenomenally well.  Here, we're considering Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword and a handful of handheld titles, and personally I don't think that compares to what's become one of my favorite series in such a short amount of time.

Aw dident get to see what they voted for this time. Not only is zelda influenced other games but displays what the system can do in the best most innovated way. Hands down Zelda is the best series of all time.
