Guinness Names the Top 50 Best Video Games Series

CoD4 So, Guinness thought it would have a crack at listing the Top 50 Video Games series of all time. This time gamers were able to vote for the list, instead of in the gaming edition of Guinness Book of World Records.

I’ve got the list here, and I will make my comments either next to it or somewhere else. Why? Because everyone has their own opinion. And don’t we all like to deride someone else’s work – especially lists? Yes!

  1. Halo [Overrated. Crysis 2’s writer would agree with me here.]
  2. Call of Duty [See above, but still better than the first.]
  3. The Legend of Zelda
  4. Guitar Hero
  5. Metal Gear [Yes.]
  6. Super Mario Bros.
  7. World of Warcraft
  8. Gears of War
  9. Super Smash Bros.
  10. Grand Theft Auto [Definitely.]
  11. Pokémon [I only ever played one Pokémon game in my whole life – so…]
  12. Resident Evil [Yes, I’ve played a few.]
  13. Fallout [Yes.]
  14. Half-Life [Definitely.]
  15. Sonic the Hedgehog [I only ever played one game in my whole life – so…]
  16. Counter-Strike [Probably.]
  17. Runescape
  18. FIFA [I only ever played one game in my whole life – so…]
  19. Kingdom Hearts [Never played it.]
  20. Final Fantasy [Never played it.]
  21. Pac-Man [Yeah!]
  22. Madden NFL [Never played it]
  23. The Sims [Damn right!]
  24. Tomb Raider [Yep.]
  25. WWE Smackdown Vs. RAW [Belongs here somewhere.]
  26. Rock Band
  27. LittleBigPlanet
  28. Saints Row
  29. The Elder Scrolls [Yes.]
  30. God of War
  31. GoldenEye 007 [Everyone likes the game, so won’t argue.]
  32. Bioshock [Yep.]
  33. KillZone [Everyone likes the game, so won’t argue.]
  34. Skate [Probably. Preferred THPS Games.]
  35. Left 4 Dead [Maybe.]
  36. Need for Speed [Yes. Played the first few.]
  37. Chrono Trigger [Never played it.]
  38. Gran Turismo [Played the first couple.]
  39. StarCraft [Yes.]
  40. Ratchet & Clank
  41. Pong
  42. Tom Clancy's [Damn right! The Original Rainbow Six and Ghost Recons, as well as Splinter Cell.]
  43. Star Wars: Battlefront [Never played it]
  44. Battlefield [Yep.]
  45. Diablo [Yes.]
  46. Lego Batman
  47. Mario Kart
  48. Burnout
  49. Crash Bandicoot [Yes.]
  50. Pro Evolution Soccer

Doom? Quake? Duke Nukem? System Shock? Thief? Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater? Mortal Kombat? Mass Effect? Medal of Honor? Command& Conquer?! Red Alert?! Jagged Alliance?! WORMS?! Some horrible omissions here. Practically nothing older than late 90’s. Anyway…

It’s like I always say: it’s down to personal opinion, and your own is the only one that really matters.

What does AAA stand for?

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
