    after flipping through the pages i agree, how did they come up with the order? Put games into a hat and pull for them?! Project Gothem 2 over Gran Turismo series? Outrun 2 makes the list but Forza 1 or 2 doesn't?! where are all the sega genesis classics?

    Goldeneye 64 not being in the top 10 flagged it as BS to me from the start.

    Never heard about such a game.

    The list was compiled, in part, from to reader submissions. Never underestimate the Nintendo crowd's ability to proclaim their property to be inherently superior to all others.

    That being said, also keep in mind that Edge is a British publication. While our tastes may be fairly similar to those in Europe (save for that soccer obsession), they do differ in many minute ways.

    In my opinion, PC games seem woefully underrepresented on the list though.

    I dont see how tetris, the 2 zeldas, and final fantasy XII can be in the top ten when FF 1 and zelda 1 arent.

    Halo in the top 10? Please! halo doesnt deserve to be on teh list at all.

    Crackdown making the list is a joke as well.

    Doom2, it looks liek a doom 1 screenshot from the N64 lol

    Lots of other crappy games that have no right beign in a top 100 list either.

    Theif is a great series. No Star Ocean? NFS High Stakes? Test Drive 3? NHL 96? Carmageddon? UT?

    I do agree with Super Metroid. Still my fav games for SNES. One of the few I still own for the system. And yes Goldeneye was good for N64. Still own it as well.
