What Is the Best Video Game of All Time?

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!

    COuld not finish it when I was little. (I was stuck at the water temple.) But I bought it again on 3DS and I finally beat it, including Master Quest...

    I have a three way tie ... Doom (any version), Halflife 2 and Portal (any version).



    I know very old school and not on the cutting edge but I have tried many and I keep n going back to the three I mentioned whenever I want to kill time or just immerse myself in pure pleasure of gaming.

    HL2:EP1, 2, and 3 would've been on this list if Valve had actually finished the episodic series with the final episode.

    It's hard to believe it's been five years since HL2:EP2.

    As of right now, I have to say "Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning" is what I'm obsessed with... Then "Tera Online" comes in a close second because it's a new MMORPG and it hasn't worn off yet... All time favorites are The elder Scrolls series and Assassin's Creed series... Yea.. I like MMOs and RPGS...

    I spent untold hours flying and battling enemy aircraft in the skies over the trenches of WWI in a flight simulator game named Red Baron by Dynamix/Sierra. I've been unable to get the game to work on newer PCs as the operating systems have changed so much. Fond memories ... sorta like the girl one dated back in college 50 years ago.

    There is no comparison. With an adventure base, loads of combat, and interesting puzzles along with some cool side quests to do, it's unbeatable. Legend of Zelda for life.
