Yes, It's True.
As we proclaimed last fall, we love to listen to people scream at us -- which is why we braved the hostile waters and assembled our list of the Top 100 Games of All Time. It was a huge success for all involved, and IGN readers of every age and opinion made sure that we knew just how right (or wrong) we were with our ranked selections. With that feedback in mind, we decided to give up our voting powers this year and move them over to you, our daily supporters. The result? The IGN Readers' Choice Top 100 Games of All Time!

The Top 100 Games of All Time!
The criteria for creating this list of your picks for the Top 100 Games of All Time are as follows:
  • Eligible games had to have been released no later than September 30, 2008 and must have received at least 1,000 reader ratings.
  • The list is comprised of single, stand-alone titles and doesn't include compilations, expansion packs or add-ons.
  • Titles with multiple editions such as collector's boxes, gold editions or direct re-releases have been consolidated into one single entry, with the edition deemed most deserving taking precedence.
  • Updated versions of original titles were only included on the list if they were significantly different from their predecessors.
  • Games released anywhere in the world are eligible (that means that even Japanese-only titles qualify).
So what made it and what didn't? To find out, keep checking back with us over the next 10 days as we start with games #100-91 and work our way down to the golden ten. After you've had a chance to check out the list, tell us what you think about it on the IGN Boards, and share your own favorite games with everyone. Enjoy!

The list has been bombarded by Zelda fan boys. Every other game is zelda

Totally useless to compare old-school to new-school and fresh games. For instance, how can Portal rank higher than Starcraft, which is a legend in it's own right.

Yeah, the fact that Soul Caliber is #3 pretty much invalidates this list.

Half Life
Warcraft 3
Starcraft
Diablo Franchise
Final Fantasy VII
Double Dragon

And heaps more that should have been in the top ten.

i never really GOT why consoles are the "gamer's machine" instead of the PC, here in Israel, you'd be hard pressed to find anyone with a ps2, let alone a ps3 or a xbox 360 :/
but since this is only Israel, i my self do not know for sure how widespread consoles are in all yours other countries

also, where the HELL IS HALF-LIFE 1?!?!?!?!?
or fallout for that matter? this list is dumb.

Oh stop complaining. People say that they disliked Halo 2 and 3, and preferred Halo 1. Then they say that they like Halo 3, 2, and not the first one.
I don't get how the game can get crappier overtime if the game mechanics are improved in every way, or perhaps just because its the "first one" that people create a bias statement out of that?


Well at least they got #1 correct on the list.
