Edge’s top 100 games of all time…today!

Top 10, 20, 50, 100, or whatever the number might be lists are always sure to be somewhat controversial, but it never keeps anybody from putting them out. Edge has compiled their 100 best games of all time list, and I have to say it’s pretty good (even with the glaring omission of Metroid Prime and the baffling inclusion of FIFA 09). There was a strong slant toward newer games or to those that have aged well. It seems that games that were only great in their time struggled to make the list, which may or may not be fair depending on your personal criteria. So, here’s the list:

100. Ridge Racer Type 4 
99. Far Cry 
98. Star Fox 64

My personal top 100 would look very different, but I feel the vibe Edge was going with here. It’s very kind toward newer games, but that’s ok because they list it in their explanation. I would guess that this list here is probably far more relevant to today’s younger gamer. Also, it’s very clear that the game has a strong Euro slant in some places.

I would rather barf blood than play Space Giraffe, after I read that I stopped reading and wrote off the entire list as irrelevant.

Love SF4 and all but I don’t know that I’d put it that high, if anything SF2 should have it’s place.

While I’m happy that FFVII is no where near the Top 10, it is still way to high up on their list. It probably should be in the 10,000+ or something…wait have there been 10,000 games released?

I really really hate FFVII.
