This topic was not out there as far as my observations have seen, so I thought to bring it up. As a person who owns WAY to many games, I have had the pleasure of experiencing some truly outstanding titles over the years. Games like Mario 64 or Zelda: OoT are common picks, and although they are both great games, I honestly feel they are far from being the best game ever released. My selection is actually a tie. I decided on Super Metroid for the SNES and Xenogears for the PS1. Super Metroid is hands down the best game in the metroid series and possibly the best 2d side action game ever published. Xenogears is an rpg that really blew my away(and yes it IS better than FF7!). Now before anyone goes to bash my rpg choice, know that I have played all the FF games, chrono trigger, earthbound, secret of mana, and many many many more role playing games. So trust me, Xenogears is one of the elite. What about everyone else out there? What do you call the best game EVER made?

PS- RPG are the best games! PERIOD! ;)

Tetris. I still play it almost daily. In my eyes, the greatest game ever made.

I disagree with S metroid cause Castlevania : SOTN is a better overall game

Allota people own alotta games they are called sellers but then again alot of people own alot of games but yet have played any of them?

[quote]I have had the pleasure of experiencing some truly outstanding titles over the years.[/quote]Wohh woooh wait a second you take pleasure games......taht is a bit too much information for us....between you and me I take pleasure in games also.

[quote]Games like Mario 64 or Zelda: OoT [/quote]Was pretty much the entire N64 collection of Americas and Europe.

[quote]I honestly feel they are far from being the best game ever released.[/quote]Well duh that is only thing people in USA went crazy over along with the rest of the world.

[quote]Super Metroid for the SNES and Xenogears for the PS1.[/quote]There is a topic for this and is below this one

[quote] Super Metroid is hands down the best game in the metroid series and possibly the best 2d side action game ever published. [/quote]Super Metroid is grand but to be honest in Japan it was not well taken thus it was one of two failures that made the creator of Gameboy Gunpei Yoko leave Nintendo. Now I call that pride.

[quote]Xenogears is an rpg that really blew my away(and yes it IS better than
FF7!). [/quote]That is only because FFVII is only FF6 in 3d and the game was sappose to take place in Midgar. Personally I have been playing around with the game for awhile and it seems to be a run of the mill commercial post apocolyptic future perfect RPG. What is so diffrent and great about the game. Far East Of Eden and Grandia is much better games and series from my observation.

[quote]Now before anyone goes to bash my rpg choice[/quote]BASH!!!!!

[quote]PS- RPG are the best games! PERIOD![/quote]The turth is SNES is the RPG king and will allways be. PSX just had high use of
3d in it's RPG games. The Saturn is probably the next best thing along with the original NES and PCE. running in the back. Never the Genesis since it is known for it's action titles.

Really O. M. Gsh!!!!!!111![/quote]

The thing is mini games along with action/adeventure games ( including comic games ) will allways be the best period.

I was going to describe a whole bunch of games but I will just do one per weekly

Bomberman -
Even after the Uni-bomber, the Twin Towers bombing people will still continue to say BLOW ME SILLY, BLOW ME HARD, I BLEWED U T KINGDOM COME. I WILL MAKE U XPLODE and other words. Bomberman reaching it's peak on the N64 was a something to admire and play. The series is perfected beyond it's years. In fact I am listening to the Second Attack right now.

I bet if you searched IGN or Gamespot you could see their top 100 games list and most likely everyone here will name something there whatever rank it is for whatever reasons.

Tetris is a game that makes sense however as its one that can be played everyday and enjoyed easily.

FF III (6) on SNES beats FFVII anyday.

nice post Redie.

Hmm, I would probably agree with Tetris. That makes perfect sense to me. I can't say I met someone who said they specifically hate Tetris. It just seems like the game that can reach the broadest audience.

I hate such subjective questions, but I'll try.

Best Game: Tetris

*really the best game*: Tetris Attack/Panel De Pon/Pokemon Puzzle League/Planet Puzzle League

Best non puzzle game: Startropics

Just my opinion.

If you are in a legitimate quest for the best game, it would have to be a game that would appeal to everyone. I know several people who would never play a Final Fantasy game. So, immediately, it'd be out of the running. I love Final Fantasy VII, don't get me wrong.

There is no universal best game ever. You can't please everyone without compromise. You could pick the game with the most universal appeal, and that would undoubtedly be Tetris, but I wouldn't consider it my favorite game ever. For me it's a fun, though only mildly entertaining, occasional diversion.

I have a hard time picking favorites, but right this moment I'd probably say it was Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, because that was a game that really surprised me with how much I enjoyed playing it. I was expecting it to be a chore (just helping my kids play it), and I ended up really loving it. I think I was the one always pushing them to play it some more. Fantastic game, but not universally appealing.

^agreed about the no universal good game

Tetris has the best lasting appeal, but my favorite game is METAL GEAR SOLID. I just played it for the first time about a month ago. Beat it in record time (in comparison to how long I take for other games) because I loved it so much. Everything about it was so perfect. This isn't nostalgia, I played it for the first time like a month ago. If you haven't played it, give it a shot.

This is like asking what's the greatest movie or album ever. It's completely subjective and different for everyone.

Tetris is a great answer. I think Super Mario Bros is another. SMB sold the NES and brought console gaming back from the great crash of the mid 80's. It ranks right up there with Teris and Pacman/Ms.Pacman as games everyone, even non-gamers know and fondly remember.

Yeah, gotta agree with Tetris. There are games that maybe I liked better personally (like Match Day 2 for the Spectrum - damn I played that game a LOT as a kid) but overall, you can't really beat Tetris.
