    Now I had intended on naming this thread "The Greatest Game Ever" and holding the poll on 10 different websites. After doing this on every website BUT CVG and Eurogamer, I realised this was a bad idea. I had people moaning about the game choices and on the whole just not understanding what was going on.
    So I've decided to keep this between just CVG and Eurogamer (I might share the other results too...if I get any) and instead of claiming it's the best game ever and upsetting people, I've decided to call it the 'Ultimate Game'.

    So what is this all about? Well as some of you may know, I've been doing a poll for the best game on each console. Well I've done them all (well the ones anyone cares about) and now I'm here to find out which is the best game out of those winners. A winner of winners, an ultimate game you may say ;)

    These mighty winning games are (in chronological order)...

    Super Mario Bros. - Nintendo Entertainment System (NES)
    Alex Kidd in Miracle World - Master System I/II
    The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past - SNES
    Sonic the Hedgehog 2 - SEGA Mega Drive
    Sega Rally Championship - Sega Saturn
    Metal Gear Solid - PlayStation 1
    The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - N64
    Deus Ex - PC
    Shenmue - Dreamcast
    Pokémon Gold and Silver/Crystal - GB/GBC
    Halo: Combat Evolved - XBox
    Advance Wars - Game Boy Advance
    Ico - PlayStation 2
    The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker - GameCube
    Super Mario Galaxy - Nintendo Wii
    The World Ends With You - Nintendo DS
    God of War: Chains of Olympus - PSP
    Fallout 3 - XBox 360
    Uncharted 2: Among Thieves - PlayStation 3

    These winners must do battle one more time...against each other! All I need you to do is name your top 10 from that list in the order in which you liked them the most. Now I for one hasn't even played 10 of those so all I ask when you vote is to at LEAST have a list of 3 games. That's it really!

    So here's my vote for example...

    1. Metal Gear Solid
    2. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
    3. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
    4. God of War: Chains of Olympus
    5. Pokémon Gold and Silver/Crystal
    6. Alex Kidd in Miracle World
    7. Advance Wars
    8. Sonic the Hedgehog 2

    I will add descriptions on why I have picked those games later (wife wants the PC)

    So come on, what's your top 10 games from the winners list?

    Wow, I had you pegged for about 14 years old. Unless you've married young that is.

    I can't name my top 10, I've only played 3

    1. Fallout 3
    2. Pokemon Gold/Silver
    3. Advance Wars

    Every girl I ever kissed I was thinking of a pro footballer.

    1. Metal Gear Solid
    2. Ico
    3. SMG
    4. LoZ: OoT
    5. Super Mario Bros
    6. Sonic 2
    7. Pokemon G/S
    8. LoZ: WW
    9. Deux Ex
    10. Uncharted 2

    For the record, I think this list is a bit naff (It's missing almost all my favourite games). But I did most of your others so it's a bit late to start moaning now. :)

    I would be surprised if most people had played 10 of those.

    Have you polled the same people each time? Have you made sure that there is a sufficient coefficient in your data? Otherwise, random users voting on two different sites means nothing. You need to qualify your research if you want it to actually be representative.

    Where's Half Life or Goldeneye? This is rubbish.
  • Deleted user 29 December 2010 18:56:09
    1. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
    2. The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past

    ..........Actually the the formula is broken Slickloose, i haven't played many of that lot, perhaps you should incorporate the top three from each list?

    Of those listed I care enough (or have played) the following to add a vote.

    1) Ico
    2) Metal Gear Solid
    3) Windwaker
    4) Mario Galaxy
    5) Shenmue
    6) A Link to the Past
    7) Deus Ex
    8) Super Mario Bros.

    Hardly a list of the best games ever. But a decent list nontheless.

    Some of the other games listed are terrific (Uncharted 2 and Fallout 3) but as much as I like them, I couldn't put them in a list of my all time favourites.

    [u]MASS REPLY![/u]

    DDevil - I wish I was 14, that way instead of doing polls out of boredom I could be wanking 6 times a day...good times!
    Kosmoz - My first eurogamer vote, thanks! Don't worry about only voting for 3 games, that's perfectly ok!
    King_Edward- For the record, I think it's a bit naff too but don't forget this isn't a poll to work out the best game of all time, it's to find out which of our winning games is the best. Nice job for being able to play all 10 though...and it's Deus Ex, not that it matters!
    Rage_Quit_Rob - Agreed although we have had a few so far!
    Widge- Cheers and you are a guy with great taste ;)
    Tom_Servo- Well, after this poll I suppose...well at least a break anyway :p
    DaM- What you hired a hitman to kill a guy called "slickloose"!? Good luck with that...Hang who's that outside.....
    Rage_Quit_Rob- Come on, it's my last poll! The reason I voted Alex over Sonic is that when I look back into my blurry memory, Alex stands out more than Sonic 2...but not as much as Sonic the franchise, obviously.
    morriss- I don't want to be representative, it's all unnofficial baby! Yeah I said it :D
    AaronTurner- Half Life was beaten by Deus Ex and Goldeneye was beaten by OoT (and Mario 64 for that matter)
    TearYouAsunder- It's too late now, besides that would be a nightmare for me to poll up...let's just end this as soon as we can! Can you not think of just one more game...out of that list, that is?
    sunjumper- Well technically that is a list of best games ever (for each console anyway), as voted by you guys! But remember we are here to see what is the best game out of all our winners, NOT the best game of all time. Thanks for voting!
    DDevil- Yeah I am only doing polls for decent consoles *FACEPALM*...I can't pull that off can I?
    uglygamer- Yes but if I asked for everyones actual top 10 games of all time I literally would have hundreads of games on my hands, hence why it's not only easier to do this but it also keeps the list just for the big boys instead of random votes for the likes of Left 4 Dead or Destruction Derby...Thanks for voting anyway!
    Lukey__b- Listing my lists...PARADOX!!!
    DaM- I'm glad you like this thread, shame you haven't voted though :p
    meme- That's not a list and nice try to get out of the grammar mistake you plainly made.
    Luckyjim- That's fair enough, it's your choice! :)
    CrispyXUK64- So why not vote? And how come you have played all those other games but not Fallout 3!?
    bladdard- THANKS!
    lavalant- Is it just a coincidence that you have voted for 13 games like bladdard (who voted directly above you) or did you get confused and thought this was a top 13 because bladdard did his top 13? Thanks for voting regardless!
    redcrayon- Thanks! No MGS!? Have you not played it or do you just plain not like it?

    I'm all caught up, so far it's a pretty surprising list!
