Game Informer’s Top 200 Video Games of All Time

Got my Game Informer mag yesterday. In celebration of their 200th issue, they put together their list of the 200 greatest video games of all time. Here are the top 20 and my commentary. Those in bold are the ones that I have played:

1 The Legend of Zelda Agreed! Sometimes I still think I AM Link!
2 Super Mario Bros. Another great classic! No surprise that Nintendo takes #1 & #2
3 Tetris The first addicting puzzle game; the wife loved this before she got addicted to Zuma
4 GTA III Never played it, not my thing
5 Half-Life 2 This came out before I got into FPS, may have to go back and try it out
6 Doom Probably the game that turned me off of FPS in the beginning
7 Metroid I wish I could curl my body into a little ball
8 Final Fantasy III I was not really a hardcore RPG’er either
9 Super Mario Bros. 3 Endless nights playing this one (love you Mario – like a brother)
Ms. Pac-Man One time Ms. Pac-Man champ at Holiday Lanes on East Main
11 World of Warcraft Not ready to shill out the monthly payments for this, plus not much of a quester
12 The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past One of the greatest sequels of all time!
13 Super Mario 64 A great introduction into 3D gaming
14 COD: Modern Warfare Haven’t had the pleasure, but MW2 will becoming into the household soon
15 Final Fantasy VII Another RPG, not me though
16 Mike Tyson’s Punch Out The only way I’d ever take on Big Mike
17 Chrono Trigger Skipped this one
18 Resident Evil 4 Not really a zombie fan either
19 Metal Gear Solid Bought the PSone just for this game
20 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Link goes 3D
