TIME Makes List of 100 Greatest Videogames

Putting together a "Top 100" list is challenging, if only because of varying tastes and the fact that compiling a list of 100 anythings is already difficult in it of itself.

Still, in the tradition of its "ALL-TIME" lists, TIME has put together the "ALL-TIME 100 Greatest Videogames List." Rather than assigning a numerical ranking to every game, TIME has wisely kept the games unranked and broken them down by epoch.

The list for games from the 2010s is quite sparse, which is excusable since we're only almost three years in. The only two games populating the list thus so far are Batman: Arkham City and Mass Effect 3, no doubt something that's going to cause quite some controversy.

Take a look for yourself here and see if you agree with TIME's choices.

    Total bull$%^&! They didn't even put Ocarina of Time on the list! EASILY one of the best games ever made!

    First thing I noticed was GTA 3, and remembering the pure amazement I had playing that game, and enjoyed it so much I even drove around the city just for the hell of it.

    IMO Ocarina of Time should be in that list as well. But it still seems like a completely well thought out list.
