HSH, two golf games, but I had thought that Mario Golf: World Tour (3DS) would make your list. Maybe it was bubbling under?

Shocked no-one has mentioned the NBA/NFL Street games tbh. Great games.

FIFA 13
ISS 98
NBA Street Vol. 3
NFL Street
Mario Power Tennis
Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour
SSX3
Tony Hawk's Underground 2
Skate 2
Fight Night Round 2

Trying to remember the best skating game reminded me of this..... Very basic but I had fun with it.

Mario Golf is good...but Everybody's Golf is essentially similar, but better than any Mario Golf game has ever been.

Tiger Woods is a different kettle of fish entirely.

To be honest I'd consider both PSP Everybody's Golf games before any of the Mario Golf games.

You claim that there's "no particular order" to your list.

But what's this?

There definitely seems to be a very particular order to your list, Miguel!

Now what could it be...

Image

Image


The evidence is irrefutable!

It's an Alphabetical List!

We've seen this play before, boys! Gents, today I'll run for mayor, on a platform of lynching Miguel, as per the alphabetical theory...

...oh wait, that's not what we're doing here, is it?

Any way to make the 'recommendations & stuff' a bit more defined on the logo? Otherwise please can we get it up ASAP, anything but this Queen logo. :dread:

Nice work, 'Celer - I always enjoy seeing these GR vote results :toot: .

Mandatory surprise: Sensible Soccer finishing above Pro Evo. Sure, it was good in its day, but... really? And Wii Sports finishing way ahead of Wii Sports Resort :o . I guess far fewer folk played Resort.

The by series is an interesting list - who'd have thought Nintendo would dominate the top of the table?

It's a good top 10 overall, although I think it's quite obviously a "gamers" top 10 sports games.

Not even close to being a surprise. SWOS is hands down one of the best games ever made. Pro Evo isn't close.

Opinions and all that, I think SWoS is a super pile of gooseberry fool.

Well that's just plain wrong isn't it. You can have an opinion about most things, but if you say something like Super Mario 64 is the worst 3D platformer ever made, your opinion is pretty much gooseberry fool.

Same goes here.
