    Everyone knows about Aeris, k maybe not EVERYONE. But like MattAY said, it's like saying you don't know Luke's father is Darth Vader.

    VIII is better anyways, hee hee! >=)

    I'm surprised no one reviewed OoT. I would have but thought someone else did already.

    Yeah, Aeris dying is pretty well known but I'm sorry that I spoiled that :? Nobody offered to review OoT, but I'm glad I got to do it since I was the only one who 100% knew it would be at #1. And I'm sure you all predicted it, but it only won by 2 points so it was VERY close.

    If a mod wishes to archive this, feel free to do so. I'd say give it awhile though so that everyone can take a look and comment if they haven't yet. I'd say give it a day or two, until the thread dies down maybe?

    FF7 brought tons of new gamers to PSone and RPGs in general though. You are def. allowed your opinions obviously but from what I'm guessing FF7 was ranked higher simply based on the fact like the review for FF8 says.. without FF7 there would be no FF8.

    The thing I find halarious about FF7 is that for me, I have found people complain more about the 'blocky hands' of the characters than the gameplay and story itself.

    FF7 brought me into RPGing and was the reason I begged my mom to get the PSone for Xmas when I was in grade 7. The combat system was amazing for its time, the characters were given to you in depth, the story was just awesome.. not to mention the soundtrack.

    Not tryin' to bash anyone and what not, not my intention.. My nerd starts to come through when I talk about FF7 because it was just so friggin amazing.

    Then again.. FF8 did have the gunblade.

    Not bad, I'm surprised RE4 beat out Silent Hill and SH2 though. Am I disappointed SH and SH2 did so poorly? Yes, but when you think about it, not everybody likes horror games, so I guess they probably didn't even make a lot of peoples lists. I think to make this fair, you need to break it down into categories; top 10 favourite horror games, top 10 favourite FPS games, top 10 puzzle games etc etc. But that wouldn't really work, because I mean look at the total number of games out there that would fit the FPS category, versus the number that would ft the horror category...

    My biggest disappointment is how poorly Tomb Raider did. That's just an insult, plain and simple, for such an awesome, revolutionary game. Oh well.

    Excellent job in all, the contest was very well done. My hats off, although I don't wear hats...

    I'm actually very happy with this list. My personal top two are 1 and 2, and a couple of my reviews got in. I'm quite glad to see that there are so many recent games. OoT, FF7, and SMB3 may be the top 3, but the higher-end of the list is cluttered with games made in the past 10 years. Congrats Ghostrip.

    haha, I love Used's review on Smash Bros Brawl. And BlackStar's ireview on GTA San Andreas is... intresting... :lol:

    Having everyone submit reviews was a great idea, it really makes the list feel like it was by us!

    My only compliant, no Guitar Hero 2.

    Ok so I'm not a Zelda fan, but Ocarina of Time was great. Im still upset FF7 is not number one, but i can live with that game beating it out. Kudos.

    On a side note - I LOOOOVVEEEDDD FFX, but it was my impression that everyone else hated it. Good to see im not alone.

    *tips hit hat to MGS4*
    &
    *and winks at StarCraft* glad to see you up here..

    Impressive job Ghost. I hope you appreciated my attempt at beating off angry fanboys who ragged on your list. And I didn't think you'd post my review, glad to see you had a sense of humor in all this!

    I wanted to, I was surprised Ghost didn't ask me to.....

    As for the list, I approve of it, because it is about where most gamers would rank everything, although MGS 4 is a bit high for my tastes and I personally would put Chrono Trigger or Banjo-Kazooie in there....

    And the fact that FFVII and OOT are always 1 and 2 is no surprise. But I while I feel FFVII is overrated, it is still a deserving game in the minds of many people because of the unconventional way (at the time) to do an RPG.

    So overall, fantastic job, Ghost, and congrats to OOT for winning.

    P.S, Happy Thanksgiving.

    My only real complaint?

    Super Metroid should have been higher on the list. Seriously, barring Metroid Prime and Prime 3 (those being a somewhat different kind of Metroid game, and Hunters isn't even a real Metroid game) are there really any better Metroid games than Super Metroid? The isolation, exploration... Almost total non-linearity, being able to breach the main sequence of the game, provided you have the right amount of skill to do it. First time I played Super Metroid, I wound up getting the Gravity Suit before I even found Kraid guarding the Varia Suit.

    But yeah, other than that, no complaints. Good amount of my favorite games on the list, Ocarina of Time on the top spot, I'm fine.

    Exactly, I would've loved to see SH 1 and 2 in the top 10, but everyone's tastes are different. It's too bad about Tomb Raider but you just gotta remember, it beat out the other countless games that were nominated.

    I do quite enjoy the MGS series so I'm glad 1 and 4 were in the top ten.

    At least I got to write reviews for the games :)

    Great work Ghost.
