I'm gonna have to only do one entry per series. Otherwise, it's just gonna be a list of Miyazaki and Kojima games.
  1. Metal Gear Solid 3
  2. Bloodborne
  3. Street Fighter III: Third Strike
  4. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
  5. Ninja Gaiden Black
  6. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
  7. Super Metroid
  8. REmake 2
  9. Dead Rising
  10. Rainbow Six Siege
I just realized that 9 out of my top 10 are Japanese developed and the only one that isn't is in last place.

Why are Japanese games just better? lol

No specific order (because it's fucking hard) except for MGS being Number 1:

MGS
Resident Evil 2
Tekken 3
Tomb Raider 2
Shadow of The Colossus
God Of War
Demon Souls
Final Fantasy 7
Dragon Quest 5
Red dead Redemption

Can add few more, Persona 5 R must be there too for example, as well as Re Rebirth and God Of War 2, plus Dark Souls, Bloodorne and Sekiro too (i just didn't want to spam too much FS but it's there), realistically you can't make a top just 10 tbh

Wow, SOCOM made your list, eh? It's probably the best multiplayer game I can think of. Making a top 10 is too difficult for me.

I'd have Chrono Cross, Chrono Trigger, Xenoblade, OoT, Radiant Historia, TLOU, SOCOM, BotW, Xenogears, Mark of Kri, Eternal Darkness, so many more to mention!

Some of those answers...


I'm seeing some lists containing games from only the last decade. I feel old.

Anyway, my top 10 off the top of my head (I might miss some things but whatever, it will be the games that come to mind). In no particular order:

  • Deus Ex
  • Prey (2017)
  • Half Life 2
  • Elden Ring
  • Gran Turismo 2 (there have been better racing games and sims since but this one cemented my love for racing)
  • Metal Gear Solid
  • Final Fantasy VIII
  • Morrowind (oblivion a close behind for this place)
  • Arcanum (if you don't know what this is, it's time to find out)
  • Divinity Original Sin 2
Bonus spots because I have to mention them:
  • Resident Evil 2 (the original)
  • Silent Hill
  • PGR4 (best arcade racer of all time IMO)
  • Lost Odyssey (narrowly missed out to FF VIII on the main list)
  • Diablo 2/Grim Dawn (best 2 arpgs of their respective eras, can't pick them apart for different reasons).
  • Hitman trilogy (the recent one)
  • Pathologic 2

2. Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest

I'll try to give a diverse list, that doesn't necessarily reflect games that I love/like or even play, so I'll try to be as objective as possible, and cover different genres.

And trying to list just 10 greatest games of all time is incredibly difficult and unfair, as there are many games that arguably deserve such mention. I'll be focusing more on games that truly revolutionized genres and/or were immensely popular and became cultural phenomenons in pop culture, and even then, limiting this to just 10 is still pretty hard/unfair. But, here goes...

Super Mario
Street Fighter 2
Halo
Gears of War
Metal Gear Solid
Outrun
Minecraft
DOOM (the original)
Tetris
Pac-Man

Many Honorable mentions:
Virtua Fighter / Tekken
Mortal Kombat
Need For Speed
Megaman / Contra
Assassin's Creed
Max Payne
Final Fantasy
Pong
Call of Duty
Temple Run
Solar Winds (huge influence on space exploration RPGs, and most of you wouldn't have heard of it)
Gran Turismo
Splinter Cell
Sonic
Grand Theft Auto (specifically 3)
The Elder Scrolls
Half-Life
World of Warcraft
Silent Hill
Mass Effect
Donley Kong
Zelda
Peggle
Bejeweled / Candy Crush
Solitaire
