all time 100

Post by redleader28 » Tue Feb 28, 2006 8:00 am

Seeing that most magazines have done it at some point or another how about Retro gamer does an online or public vote on the top 100 greatest retro games. I think it would be good to see what would be the number one game of all time voted by us the readers.

What do you think??

And Games tm is in the process of doing it. And Edge are due to publish a special Top 100 Games Anthology sort of thing. Of course that won't neccessarily be all retro games... :?

We could always do something on the forum, but make it a bit different to the usual "top 100". Everyone gets to choose just one game from one format to include in a "top 100, but not in order, readers!" list, taking care not to duplicate those that have gone before. It could work. No, really, it could. You'd certainly end up with a list of class games, unless someone decided on Bionic Granny as their choice.

Popular doesn't always mean good or high quality though. :wink:
