The Top 50 Video Games Of All Time, Ranked

If you want to provoke an argument, just try to tell someone that their favorite video game didn’t make the top 50. Business Insider took that chance, and presents a ranked list.

We did have some parameters, however, when choosing the games: This list includes console video games, spanning from the 1980s to today, and includes only games from more-modern consoles (sorry, Atari and ColecoVision fans!). In most instances, we chose an entire franchise or series of games, rather than just one, as our favorite.

We also took into consideration Metacritic scores, user reviews, as well as our own personal experience to choose the games on this list.

Not being much of a gamer myself, I don’t have specific quibbles with the list. The games at the top (which are at the bottom of the page) are long-lived franchises that people still play like crazy. The comments at the post, of course, contain angry gamers pointing out the omissions. You might have some opinion on the list yourself.

It amazed me that the Fifa series from EA is not included in the list, but Madden series is. Really? So obvious this is a biased list from Americans to Americans.

I've not really looked at the comments, but there are clearly a lot of omissions to the list. I'd say this list is more biased towards a 20-something gamer, or those with short memories. The list is mostly pointing out the blockbuster titles for consoles, rather than any kind of "of all time" ranking. There is slim mention of anything that predates the 2000's and not a single Atari or Commodore game is mentioned. There were quite a number of immortal games on both of those platforms.
