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.

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.

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.

this list holds no value for me.

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.

@dr_jashugan MGS and GTA are the two most deserving series left. Fallout isn't bad but ME and AC are complete garbage that should have fell out in the early rounds.

@ArabrockermanX @dr_jashugan ME is the best of all time, and AC is not that bad either :3
