Does anyone feel that half (well, more than half) the games on this list shouldn't be here? I mean, I understand it was a poll, but seriously?

There are soooooooooooooo many things wrong with that list, that I can't figure out which ones should be there.


Let's start with the obvious:


Twilight Princess < New Super Mario Bros. Wii < Pokemon Black/White < SUPER MARIO BROS!? ... I think that's a little, err, wrong. Should be... TP > Black/White > NSMBW > SMB. Or have SMB not even on there... I mean, I get it, it's iconic, after 8 difficult worlds, and finally finding the princess... But still. It's not exactly the greatest ending ever, or even better than half those games. I don't disagree with FF7, but that's more because I haven't played it, and I know just how... err... fanatic that fanbase can be. But honestly, there are a lot of games that have better ending than half those games. ... And I notice a distinct lack of newer games... If TP's up there, where's Skyward Sword? 0_o

There are some great ones, like the Mass Effect games, SW KotOR, Portals, Halo games etc. Would've ranked those higher.


But seriously, The Force Unleashed II?



The ending of the first TFU was better.
