  • IGN: Top 100 Modern Games

    http://www.ign.com/top/modern-games

    I honestly laughed a few times while looking through it.

    I'll just give my take on the top 5..

    #5--Portal 2. I've never played it, so I can't really argue against it.

    #4--Super Mario Galaxy 2. That means it's better than Uncharted 2, Reach, Crysis 2, GTA IV, Dead Space, Dragon Age, Oblivion, Killzone 3, Fallout, InFAMOUS 2, Demon Souls, Arkham Asylum, Battlefield, Starcraft II, GOW, Tekken 6, MK9, MGS4 (which didn't make the top 100), and Gears.

    Three Mario remakes manage to sneak their way into the top 20, top 10, and top 5. I don't get that at all.

    #3--Red Dead. Pretty fair, I think it's overrated though.

    #2--BioShock. Kinda surprising, actually.

    #1--Mass Effect 2. Honestly not surprised, I'd put it at #15 or so, but you can definitely make the case for it being #1. I think the first game is far better though.

    I haven't finished looking through the entire list, but I've seen some pretty questionable spots, but like I said, it's their opinion. Some games I think are ranked good enough like Oblivion at #18, that's a pretty good spot for it.

    Quick comments (from your post, my browser doesn't seem to like the IGN website so I haven't explored the link)

    Bioshock being that high on the list is excellent. Nintendo's latest regurgitated franchise... not so good. Why Portal's sequel would be 5th, above the original itself, is beyond me. I never actually played Red Dead because the idea of allowing Rockstar to progress from badly programming vehicles to badly programming horses didn't seem like something I wanted to experience, perhaps I should give it a go though. Can't comment on ME2 because I never really got into the franchise, but all my friends love the games so I'm probably the odd one out.

    Obviously there will never be a definitive, unbiased top 100 list so I don't take articles like that too seriously; but it does make for interesting discussion.

      Red Dead was amazing, you should definitely give it a try.

      However, this list was a little overly bloated with arcade games and iPhone games. The idea that Angry Birds is better than Demons Souls, or that freaking Peggle is better than Alan Wake or the newest Zelda is just ridiculous.

        Agreed... they also had games such as Pac Man really high. It's a classic no doubt, but a better game than Reach, Killzone, MGS, etc? No...

            Mario Kart DS over InFAMOUS 2 and Angry Birds over Crysis, are probably the dumbest things on the list, aside from SMG2 being #4.

            To be honest, I don't think any smartphone/arcade game should be on this list, one or two yeah, but they have about 10 on the whole list.

            The only part I felt they put effort into was the top 10. Everything before that seems randomized. No way should Dragon Age: Origins be that low..compared to a Tetris or Mario game.

                Fable II was on the list and honestly I thought it was terrible. I don't think I got halfway into it before I quit. The first was one of my favorite games of all time.

                  Really? I absolutely loved Fable 2 - of course, it wasn't what Peter Molyneux hyped it to be, but they never are.

                    I don't see Uncharted: Drake's Fortune on there, maybe I just keep skipping over it.


                    Also, I don't see Infamous, the first one.

                        Whole list is pretty stupid.

                        Though I'm glad someone else likes Forza 3 more than GT5(isn't even on there, they must not have been good at it.)

                          They only put one game from a series to represent it, it'd be lame if 5 spots were taken up with CoD games.
