    Ok, after the IGN an EGM top 100 fiasco, I've decided to take it upon myself to create this thread, and let the Naruto Forums top 50, I would say 100, but that might get out of control.

    So go ahead and list your own top 50, top 25, top 100, or even top 1000 if you want... I don't care! After the results are in.. I'll make someone else tally the votes and we will create a new top 50 games list of all time!!

    I will post mine... later :p

    I find hard to list my favourite ten games in order from the best to the least, I would never be able to rank 50.

    Same here.

    All I can say is that:

    Final Fanasty
    Gran Turismo
    Shin Megami Nocturne

    * Series

    And a lot of other should be in it.

    Perhaps a smaller listing is in order, top 10 or 25 could be easier... it's just that best game has already been done, wanted to get something new going.

    Top 50 is a bit aggressive I suppose. But maybe some people will get real bored and post them. Or perhaps we can compile various top 10s, then go through and agree upon placements, or vote...

    I have an idea, ask everyone 25 games that should be in the pole of 60, than collect 60 different games and have a voting like placing them in order and see what game gets the most votes in there sction like who ever gets the most posts for second gets second, its obvious I suppose.

    Current listing for nominees is as follows, including the 10 I will add for the time being.

    Remember that 10 are nominated per person according to the change in rules mid-way-through? (I just took it upon myself to list them so far)

    We can do this part for the first round until we have 100 +, then narrow it down to 50....... Then to 25..... Then to 10...... Then best game ever created.

    1. Tetris
    2. Mario 64
    3. Doom
    4. Street Fighter II
    5. Chrono Trigger
    6. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
    7. 007: GoldenEye
    8. Pac-Man
    9. Final Fantasy VI
    10. Metal Gear Solid: Tactical Espionage Action
    11. Halo 2
    12. Half-Life 2
    13. World of Warcraft
    14. Final Fanasty XI
    15. Disagea
    16. Gran Turismo 4
    17. Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne
    18. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
    19. The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker
    20. Megaman X 8
    21. Final Fantasy 7
    22. Star Ocean: The Second Story
    23. Arc The Lad Generations
    24. Naruto Gekitou Ninja Taisen 3
    25. Naruto: Narultimatte Hero 2
    26. Final Fantasy Tactics
    27. Ogre Battle 64
    28. Donkey Kong Country
    29. Devil May Cry 3
    30. Time Splitters: Future Perfect

    We really need a good solid set of rules for this. Naming random sets of games (Zelda) is too broad as, IMO, some of them sucked. If we limited things to 10 games per person in nominees, this would flow smoothly.

    I'm gonna try and think up a top 50 for me soon, but I'm gonna take a different approach to it, feel free to use it.

    I'm going to factor in several points and then decide were it will go based on total score, seems like a good way to go, since I can't decide between two games without nostalgia breaking in and clouding my judgement.

    Fun factor (combination of playability, control, and overall enjoyment) - 30 points
    Revolutionary factor - 20 points
    longevity factor - 15 points
    Story factor - 15 points (a game can be awesome with little to no story think tetris)
    Musical factor - 15 points
    Graphical factor (not a deciding factor for me when playing games, but it must count for something, or people will kill themselves in fury) - 5 points

    All for a total of 100 points. If there is a tie, well, Nostalgia Factor will account for 1 point... HAHAHAH!!

    Alright, top 25 five...heeeeere we go (and I'll try not to put a series in more than once...unless the game was just so amazing that it deserves to be in)

    25. Star Wars: Rogue Leader
    24. Ninja Gaiden
    23. Street Fighter II
    22. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4
    21. Sonic The Hedgehog 2
    20. MegaMan

    18. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

    14. Super Smash Bros.
    13. Resident Evil 4
    12. Eternal Darnkess: Sanity's Requiem
    11. EarthBound
    10. Metal Gear Solid
    9. Grand Theft Auto 3
    8. The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time
    7. Super Mario 64
    6. The Legend of Zelda

    and now, my top 5...

    5. Super Metroid. It was a rewarding experience to play this game, worthy of my top 5 at any rate...
    4. Super Mario Bros. Can anybody honestly say they haven't invested any amount of time into the old-school classic? It's a great game, and it's what made Nintendo a household name.
    3. Chrono Trigger. In my opinion, the second greatest RPG of all time. It put a new spin on the battle system, had an awesome story, cool characters, I've always loved playing this game.
    2. Final Fantasy VI. This game was amazing. It had great gameplay, graphics, a gripping story, likeable characters...and chocobos!

    finally...my number one game of all time...
    1. Tetris. I have played this game since it released, and it's still every bit as much fun and addictive as it was back then.

    I'll just list my top ten because it would take me forever to list 50 and if you told me to copy my top 50 list without looking at it immediately after i made the list I probably wouldn't be able to do it...

    8. Mario Kart 64 (N64)
    9. Super Mario 64 (N64)
    10. WWF No Mercy (N64)

    ...if you ask what my top 10 games are next week my answer will probably be different. Here are some games that would definitely make my top 50 if I made a list...

    Yoshi (NES)
    Street Fighter Alpha 3 (DC)
    Donkey Kong Country (SNES)

    Street Fighter III:3rd Strike
    Made back in 1999, and is still the best and well made 2D fighting game ever. Awesome and smooth graphics, balance gameplay, good roster of characters, uniqueness, and has a very deep gameplay where the amount of knowledge is endless. The moves have quick responses, solid gameplay with lots of tricks and mixups to use, and the music is also very nice. It's been 6 years after it's release and it's still adored and played competetively throughout the world.

    Breath of Fire III
    The best of the of series. Best graphics I've ever seen in my life, awesome gameplay, story, gamelength, and sidequests. There could be no other RPG game better than BoF3, in my opinion. The music was good, characters were cool, map freedom, great battle system, dungeon and how the story bends together was great.

    Final Fantasy Tactics
    Great graphics, very deep story, and endless amount of gameplay. It had a bountiful amoutn of jobs that your character can become, and the combo of skills from each class is great. It also used the battlefield like how an SRPG game should. FFT will always be a classic amongst a huge amount of the old school players. Always imitated never duplicated.

    Ok well, I went with my previously posted formula on ranking, let me say it didn't turn out as expected, and since a lot of stuff was coming out even, I upped a hidden factor of Nostalgia to 10 just to keep things relatively seperate.

    Anyway, feel free to question why it came out the way it did... wouldn't really be a personal liking.. maybe the formula is flawed..... suggestions?

    Final Fantasy VI
    Final Fantasy VII
    Chrono Trigger
    Tactics Ogre
    Final Fantasy I
    Super Metroid
    Diablo II
    Final Fantasy Tactics
    Mario 3
    S. Mario Bro.
    Zelda II
    Zelda III
    Street Fighter II
    Mortal Kombat
    Yars Revenge
    Final Fantasy VIII

    This is my top 25 list in order with FFVI being number 1. I think what's throwing it off for me is the revolutionary standards... for instance, Final Fantasy Tactics didn't really revolutionize anything, other games before that already established the genre... but anyway..

    I'll give it a shot...I've played way too many games and agree that nostalgia creeps in...I don't own an X-box...so this may be a little biased, but I owned everything else :D

    1. Super Mario Bros./Super Mario 3
    2. Tetris
    3. Half Life/Half Life 2
    4. Metroid/Super Metroid
    5. Zelda: Ocarina of Time/Link to the Past
    6. Chrono Trigger
    7. Doom
    8. 007 Goldeneye
    9. Sonic the Hedgehog 2
    10. Star Fox 64
    11. Super Mario 64
    12. Megaman/Megaman 2
    13. Super Mario World
    14. Metal Gear Solid
    15. Street Fighter 2/Mortal Kombat
    16. Final Fantasy VII
    17. Resident Evil 1/2/4 - voice acting is bad, but still fun to play
    18. Sam and Max hit the road
    19. Comand and Conquer: Red Alert
    20. Soul calibur
    21. Splinter Cell series
    22. Nights into Dreams
    23. Virtua Fighter series
    24. GTA 3
    25. Metroid Prime

    Even though I numbered them...I have many second thoughts on the list, so you can take these out of order, but Super Mario Bros , Super Mario 3, and Tetris are my top games because Mario Bros introduced the world to real platform video games(or at least to me) without going to the arcade to play Donkey Kong. I have an Atari 2600 and Pong really introduced everyone to console games, but pong didn't have a story, was only entertaining for so long, and nothing was better than kicking King Koopa's butt and saving the princess(except when you found out that the princess was in another castle). Super Mario 3 was the best of teh series and has unlimited replay ability. Tetris...well..it's tetris...who doesn't get addicted to falling blocks and the music. You'll play it until you start seeing falling blocks in your dreams.
