I am so happy you didn't put any numbers in, that pretty much voids most traditional complaints as now we can pretty much order them however we like in our heads. :mrgreen:

I thought it'd be best. I never intended to have the final list ordered but I considered putting up the Top 10, glad I decided against it!

NOE only allow you to get one card from the site each day, and because I need a specific amount of points I'm forced to slowly gather up multiple cards over a few different days before I can afford to get that from the VC. :cry:

I didn't vote, so I can't really complain. But I don't have cause to anyway - you did the right thing by not putting them in any supposed order of merit, and all the titles that I would have included (pretty much) are in there. Well done.

Of course I did, I'm a gamer.

Indeed. Or VI. Both better than X.

Not that I voted for either, but still...

Dead Rising, Resi 5, Gears 2
And no Gran Turismo/PGR :fp:

And that Paper Mario TTYD pic isn't from Paper Mario TTYD.

Good effort PP (no sarcasm intended)

No Mercy.

I was playing the hell out of that early last week, it's still awesome despite being almost 9 years old now. Yet to be surpassed in my book.

Wii sports is little more than a tech demo, besides, every Wii owner has it anyway.

In 10 years time nobody will remember half the games in that list, for better or for worse Wii Sports started a gaming revolution and that wont be forgotten.

That alone of course may not be enough to make it worthy of a place, but the sheer amount of joy that can be gotten from that 'tech demo' and the fact that at a party Wii Sports is about 10x more fun to play than almost everything else in that 100, probably should be.

How many people actually voted for it?
I know this is a list of peoples favorite games and it was always going to turn out like this, but come on; 3 Halos, 4 Resis, 4 Final Fantasys, 4 Metal Gears, 4 GTAs, 6 Marios, 6 Zeldas (I realize I voted for most of those, but still)

I guess I just don't think the list makes for very exciting reading

Not wishing to sound ungrateful or anything but I was actually looking forward to seeing which games finished in which place. Some of us spent a lot of time deliberating over the order of our games, making sure we were happy with them. Why have you decided to abandon this point of the project?

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.
