TIME Makes List of 100 Greatest Videogames

Take a look for yourself and see if you agree...

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.

    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.

    Other then replacing Oblivion with Morrowind, it's a damn good list I have to say.

    I have to agree with most of this list, or at least I understand why they put what they did on (even if I don't agree with it.

    RIP Sir-Tech. I miss the old Wizardry RPGs and fond memories, or should I say mammaries, of the Leisure Suit Larry games.

    My biggest issues ... no Freespace (Two fantastic space combat games) and other than Civ no 4x games (no MoO or MoM)

    Although everyone will have a different list, overall they got a good list there. I won't bore people with why they didn't include Uncharted Waters, oops seems like I just did :) .

    LOL , no C&C , no Warcraft or Warcaft II and like someone pointed out no AOE, also no DUKE, Descent, Half Life, and a score of RPG's that shaped the modern ones now, also for 2000+ add Stronghold and Heroes of Might and Magic. Oh and i forgot none of the M&M made the cut ... worst list ever.... like the fact that Desktop Tower Defense is there and Angry Birds...

    There were some amazing games since 2010 (well.. like 5 or 6 at most that are worthy of the 'classic' title), but they were all sequels to superior games of the past. At least their impact, and advancement of gaming was greater in their own time.

    No Planescape Torment, no Baldur's Gate, no Fallout, Oblivion instead of Morrowind.

    However it's not a totally retarded list as they put in Thief, KOTOR and Prince of Persia
