This is kind of a broad topic, but since G4 dared to tackle a "Top 5 Video Games of All Time" poll (as if anyone could establish a satisfactory list) we thought we'd make things a little bit simpler. There are plenty of games out there with enough clout to secure an easy spot on the Top 5 -- "Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time," "Final Fantasy VII" -- but we're more interested in the open-ended answers.

We want to know what you think is the best game of all time is, whether it's a well-known entry like "NBA Jam" or "Skyrim," or an obscure title from your childhood, like "Buster Busts Loose" or "Jade Cocoon." From Don Daglow's "Dungeon" to "Diablo III," anything is fair game. We'll kick it off with a few canonical classics, but think hard before you answer. And feel free to post some footage if you'd like!

    This is not an issue of opinion. This is the only non-subjective thing ever. The answer is LoZ OoT. All other answers are wrong.

    These top five games should collab and form one big super mega ultra uber ultimate epic (etc. etc.) game of the century!!!
    I mean, I guess that'd be cool.

    Best? Satisfying even the tastes of a middle-aged farmer's son with the depth and breadth of a video arcade junkie, fed an incessant diet of violence, explosions, poor character development and pixellated titties to the point that Crackdown was the best game ever??? Or best because more people bought it played it and successfully word-of-mouthed it to their friends?

    I'll stick with this list, for simplicity. I'm not much of a gamer anyway. I stopped playing when the N64 came out (3D makes me physically ill).

    I sometimes wonder if those who didn't vote for HL2 simply haven't played it yet.

    Of course they could wonder the same about me and why I didn't vote for the games they picked lol

    there are some amazing games on there, but i'm afraid that portal 2 takes the top spot for me, and if you dissagree, you have to confront Wheatley
