Edge names the top ten games of all-time

Edge, the UK’s most famous gaming mag, has named their top ten videogames and the results are proving to be a tad bit controversial. Anyhow, here’s the list:

  1. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
  2. Resident Evil 4
  3. Super Mario 64
  4. Half Life 2
  5. Super Mario World
  6. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
  7. Halo: Combat Evolved
  8. Final Fantasy XII
  9. Tetris
  10. Super Metroid
I definitely agree with the inclusions of the Zeldas, Super Marios, Tetris, and Super Metroid, but I’m iffy on some of the others. Halo might belong for its impact on the industry, but Final Fantasy XII and Resident Evil 4 are a bit sketchy. Were they some of the best on their respective platforms? Sure they were. Were they some of the best games ever? That’s hard to say. I’m pretty surprised that Pong or Pac-Man missed the cut, as both were hugely important titles in their era.
