    Read this on BBC news earlier.

    Of course were going to have to stump up £10 or €17 to find out the other 90 :rolleyes: :)

    I will be buying Edge tomorrow...as always...

    But! Halo above Halo2?
    And no Mario Kart 64 in the top ten!
    I wonder where Diddy Kong will come in the list...

    I am loving Sixtyforce, and the N64 was my firs console at age 6. I got the PS2 on release day, XBOX around a year after it came out and XBOX 360 on release day. The only portable consoles I have had are the Gameboy Colour and Gameboy Advance.

    This is not in the July issue. I have that. This is going to be a special edition magazine release hence the higher price tag from the usual £4 to £10 ;)

    As they would say in the Catherine Tate Show. "£10 for a load of recycled articles and a readers poll listing.. The dirty robbing ba***rds..."

    Can't fault that list at all. To be honest I thought they would have Prime up there, this only gets me more excited for Super Metroid :D

    7/10 on Nintendo systems.
    5/10 Nintendo exclusives.
    None from this gen, 2/10 from last gen.
    3 RPGs, 2 FPS, 1 puzzle.

    Story was dead in Halo 2.

    I'm just getting into RES 4 on the Wii, but really don't see anything that would make it the number 2 game of all time...especially above others. Am excited to get deeper in and find out if there really is something special to the game...

    I'm at the end of it. Definitely one of the best games ever.

    I'm surprised at not seeing Final Fantasy VII on there. I think it should take XII's spot. :D

    It was probably just a missprint on the BBC page. I think it probably was VII but a typo got in there. We will see when edge special editon gets released.

    Edge recently voted Final Fantasy XII the game of the year so it probably isn't a typo.

    the list is made through reader feedback so of course totally based towards recent games

    half life 2 but no half life 1 ? fail
    halo beating tetris ? fail...
    no civilization 2 ? fail
    Super Mario World instead of Super Mario 3 ? fail
    final fantasy xii instead of 7 or 8 ?
    resident evil 4 ? while fantastic it does by no means deserve the 2. spot... fail

    Resident Evil 4 is not the #2 best game, that is for damn sure.

    Hard to argue with that list, but i would have put GTA high up on the list (probably top ten)

    Wow, that's pretty bad. :rolleyes:
    FFXII was a good game, but nowhere as near as good as VII. It shows when the price of VII hits $100 nowadays.

    He talks about games standing the test of time, and then puts a Final Fantasy that's a year old? You have to give things time to settle before they're eligible for an all time list, whether it games or movies or music, etc.

    That being said, I bought a Wii two weeks ago, and all I've been using this high-tech, motion sensing, next-gen device for is to play Super Mario World, so I have no problem with that being on the list. Now just tell me what Toejam and Earl placed at.

    I hold KOTOR above any finalfantasy bs. FF 6 was vastly superior to 7.

    No Sonic? Low SSBM? Only Metal Gear Solid 2, when 1 and 3 were both far superior. FFXII in the top 10? Awful list (though they did get #1 right, at least).

    Bugger! You're right! Your post was the first to say Sonic. :eek:

    No Doom 1. R-Type Final and no 1-3?!?! Resident Evil 1 so low down? No Dawn of Sorrow?

    The list is pretty bad. :confused:

    I really laughed at Manhunt, #61. Maybe Manhunt 2 will actually get released sometime....:rolleyes:

    The introduction to the magazine

    Maybe, this will help clear up some of the selections? (Or make the decisions more baffling?)

    I am also surprised at the omission of a 2D Sonic game.
