    Fallout ranks 55th in IGN's top games of all times list:<blockquote>The sequel allowed you to put armor on your party members and order them to stay or follow, but it's the original that's warmest in our gaming hearts. It offered a huge spectrum of actual role playing, problems that had no clear answers, an enormous environment, a dignified and mature grittiness, hilarious dialog, and a fully realized world that managed to breathe life into the otherwise fading post-apocalypse cultural awareness, with a retro 50s twist. You were a true anti-hero who just wanted to do his own thing -- a loner by nature who just wanted security and peace but had to go through hell to get there.</blockquote>Personally, I'd just like to see the big gaming site stop making those lists.

    That list sucks. Fallout should be in top ten at the very least, if not in top five. Simply put, it is the most sophisticated RPG ever created.

    That is a good point. It seems they make a top 100 list every 6 months

    The list does indeed suck some serious ass. Fallout should have been in the Top 10 at the very least. Didn't see Planescape in there at all but there are 30 to go.

    The majority of those games I would never play although I'm keeping my fingers crossed to see Golden Axe in the Top 30. Golden Axe on the Sega Genisis!!! w00t!!! Thing it's time to go peruse some pawn shops.

    Dude, Golden Axe is way too good to be on an IGN list.

    So's Fallout, though, and PS:T

    I bet #1 will be something extremely unworthy, like Morrowind or Halo 2(or anything on the current generation consoles)

    I'm guessing Half-life, either 1 or 2.
    OR they put both in the top 10 :lol:

    EDIT: Seriously, what the fuck.
    037 // Wave Race 64???
    38: Red Alert?

    What The Fuck? :shock:

    I guess that's evidence the list is crap :).

    I don't know, I kind of dislike most of their list. Like God of War was a good game but was it much different than Devil May Cry? So if a game is just a rip off... can it be that best of a game? Ah well, I guess it depends what makes a best game...

    Britney's Naval Piercing

    Britney's Naval Piercing

    'Top of the Pop's' listings are hooks, lures for any eye balls, in any media.

    Easy writing, easy reading, a REAL ""Win - Win"" for editorial, (MARKETING) content.

    So, for example, Britney's naval piercing has dropped to 55.

    If one were to REALLY one on one with Britney, IN THE HEAT OF THE ACTUAL EXPERIENCE, be it a babe, or a game, ...

    we'd be lip locked, and crotch grinding, and if we were at all intellectual, we'd be marvelling on how great her zaftig ass doubles as a love handle.

    OHHH, later we'd ask if the stone in her belly piercing was a birth gem, or some mystic crystal.

    These "Lists" are not the actual experience we have had with the named, or un-named games.

    They reflect the writer's values, and the editor's values more than any REAL concensus.

    So, if they focus on 'tits', you 'ass' men need not feel threatened.

    You know what you like, and that's really an advantage when one is bombarded with marketing bullshit, 24 --- 7.

    God, their veiws sux so much. The lower and lower in numbers I went from Fallout seeing the other games they "deemed" better than Fallout I could literaly feel a sickening growing in my stomache.

    With this kind of scores so far I, sadly, wouldnt be suprised if Fallout BOS (POS) Made #1 or atleast the top 10. I need a 2 ant-acid's after this.

    P.S.-Also I saw DOOM (the origional) on there, but not Wolfenstein (the origional) from wich all FPS's really owe their heritiage to... did someone else see it? If so what number?

    I wish, well, not really.

    They will, however, be filled with FPSs.

    Damn MP, 'twill ruin the industry.

    Wait, I've been saying that since they sarted including such options in all games in the (late)SNES era.

    I'm saddened to see that I was right.

    If I wanted social interaction in my games, I'd go play DnD and the like or something more socially acceptable involving physical exertion. I don't want that, so I play computer games. But they keep trying to force us all to play CS with morons. What's worse is that they bring potentially decent games down to that level by concentrating on the Next Big Thing. Funny, 's been the next big thing for so long now.

    And it gets less enjoyable with each iteration.

    why do people get riled up over these lists? they are all completely subjective to the small list of people who create the lists

    give 5 sets each of 5 diverse gamers to make 5 separate top 100 lists... i bet the lists would be all different with only a few similarities,. and those similarities *could* be just coincidence

    just my .02 - no facts to back any of that crap up (except the first sentence) whatsoever

    Hmm, theyve already listed best games.

    System Shock 2
    Baldur's Gate
    Half-Life 1 & 2
    Deus Ex

    What's left for top 10? The Sims? :shock:

    PS Although we havent seen Fallout 2 yet.

    A Legend of Zelda game above UFO: Enemy Unknown? I need to stop reading lists like this. All they seem to do is raise my blood pressure.
