When we compare the history of video games to movies, books, and other entertainment mediums, it has been arranged with some releases of incredible quality. As such, it is natural for a gaming fan to wonder what are the best games ever made, or at least what the specialists think are the best. Since it’s subjective, and several people will have different opinions on the matter, but it is fascinating to take a trip down memory lane and see what is out there for the fans.
- Game Rankings: Game Rankings will be one of the first places you will come across while searching information about the best games of all time because it gains its rankings based on total scores from several video game publications. While some lists that are directly based on websites have collective opinions of their own writers, this list casts a much wider net.
- Metacritic: Just like Game Rankings, Metacritic aggregate scores from different outlets to decide the best games. Also, it does not go all the way back to the old stuff, as reviews were harder to find back then, and most of the reviews were contained in print magazines, and many of them are lost to time. But, it’s a fabulous site to come if you want to know about the best games, and if you want to know about the worst games ever, you can use either of the aggregate sites. You know, if you’re a masochist or something!
- GameRadar: It is a fantastic website for more offbeat gaming content. The folks at GamesRadar have recently put out a list of the best 100 games. With that many games, it’s a fairly comprehensive list, and it covers games from all the different time periods and genres. It’s difficult to compare a game released in 1980 with a game released in 2013, but they do quite a good job, and you can fairly choose on. If you want a genuine place to go when your friends try to claim that Y game is better than Z, then GamesRadar’s list is a great resource.
- IGN Top 100 Modern Games: If you are not interested in knowing about the retro games and keen to know about the games played on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, then you are going to love this list because it contains only the modern games and nothing out of it is included. If you are new to gaming, and perhaps have acquired a last-gen console, this list will give you an ideal starting place for great games to play.
- VGChartz: Are you interested in the concrete numbers? Well, there is only one best place to turn that sales numbers. And if you want to know about the numbers, VGCharts has you covered it’s database with the best selling video games. The numbers may not be 100 percent accurate because not all companies release their detailed sales data, but the list will give you a fabulous ballpark of what games were sold the best in the history of gaming, and it’s just interesting to see what games really brought it in terms of making the big bucks.
