Its not even funny. There are so many clear 'errors' in this. I'm not sure even how its supposed to represent popularity?

All that I can think it represents is '30 random games in a sequential order'.

I just don't see where its come from.

If it were a casual/high street type thing I can't see how Elite would be up there with Sonic and Tomb Raider.

As said before, Street Fighter? Does this refer to the franchise? If so why does Vice City warrant its own position? The first Street Fighter is hugely, and with reason, looked over in relation to its sequels.

And I just hate any list that would put Mario World at number 19 with regards anything ;)

MMMWWWAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA!!!

PS.Although....sonic 2 or sonic 3 & k would have been just as worthy. And yes, alot of games are missing from the list. Its a damn sin to forget something like mario64.

Seems reasonable enough to me. Trying to distill years of gaming down into any list is always going to be tough and there are always going to be arguments for and against any games included/not included. However, it you were completely fresh to gaming and sat and played that list of 30 games then you wouldn't be playing any particularly shockingly bad bits of software (possible exception - Manic Miner).

God the people who vote in these things are idiots.

I bet they bought the Shampoo album.

Now now, just because there opinions are different to yours...

People generally agree on things like fine art.

Why not videogames of the past?

There will always be some conjecture, but not so much as to be wholly questionable.

2 things are very, very wrong, objectively.

1. Mario 64 isn't there.

2. 1988 Street Fighter is there. that game was terrible. *proper shit*, that was. SF only became popular with SF2 (1991/2)

and if I may be so bold

1999 Medal Of Honor

NO.

Yep

I was a big MoH fan, but even I can see it doesn't deserve to be in the top 30 of all time?

And I was there when the SNES started coming in on import, all due to SF2.....That was the daddy...unless the true classic was the monochrome shonker on the speccy....christ, from that era, Renegade was a far better game

There is no question that this poll omits a fair few classics, and reflects the opinion of the less hardcore gamer. However, as a Sonic fan, I'm chuffed to fuck B) B)

Though to be honest, the absence of Sonic from Edge's top ten was equally as ridiculous as Mario 64's omission here. So, we can at least agree that most polls of this nature are shit, unless of course you happen to agree with them :lol:
