Im Starting this thread because I continuously read IGN's new Top 100 list, and its pretty much complete shit. So I figured, the Magicbox would be able to compile a much better one.

My current ideas for rules are alittle bit out there, so if you have a better idea for doing this, feel free to let me know.

Anyways:

Rule 1: List 20 games. Their order is important, as higher ranked games receive more points. I'm leaning towards:

10 points for top 5
5 points for 6-10
2 points for 11-20

Rule 2: No game can be listed multiple times (not even re-makes)

Rule 3: Only list games you have seriously played, no speculations please

Rule 4: Games like Legend of Zelda Oragle of Ages/Seasons are not two games, nor are the .Hack series (though I hope .Hack doesn't end up on this list...) Just put .Hack or Zelda:Oracles for this lists purposes.

Rule 5: List which version you like best (eg. Lunar: SSSC - PsX) this is so I can also compile which systems are the best, 2 for 1 deal.

It should be pretty simple, hopefully...
Ill update the list in the post under this with the current list of top games. After 2 weeks, I'll compile the data, and hopefully have a Top-100 on our hands.


Here is my list, which can be used as an example:


1) Master of Orion (PC)
2) Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete (PsX)
3) Diablo 2 (PC)
4) Xenogears (PsX)
5) Valkyrie Profile (PsX)
6) Metal Gear Solid (PsX)
7) Final Fantasy II (SNES)
8) Lunar 2: Eternal Blue (PsX)
9) Castlevania: SOTN (PsX)
10) Suikoden II (PsX)
11) Valkyrie Profile: Silmeria (Ps2)
12) Tie Fighter (PC)
13) Warcraft III (PC)
14) Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (SNES)
15) Final Fantasy III (SNES)
16) Front Mission 3 (PsX)
17) Knights of the Old Republic (XBOX)
18) Panzer Dragoon Saga (Saturn)
19) Suikoden V (Ps2)
20) X-Com (PC)

If you want some Nintendo support in there, then make it happen.
Of course a single list will be biased.

fine, i'll make one. just you wait. it'll be awesome.

and the topic makes it sound like this is about the best games of this year. also, i'd be surprised if 100 games get mentioned on this dead forum.

Probably should alter the list some. It could skew heavily depending on the way people worship certain companies, like loving nintendo or sony or wahtever, never owning a N64, not playing PC games, didnt have a C64 blahblah. Probably rate it in terms of consoles.

I'll do mine sometime this weekend. Can I assume PC games are still included in this count?

No need for me to make a list. Half the games I'd mention I doubt many know of, so they'd get left out of a top 20. And remembering is effort.
