Top 500 video games of all time identified – most credible ranking

Game News

As expected, Breath of the Wild took the first place, but there are also many classics in the top – from CS 1.6 to the first StarCraft and Fallout.

It seems that the most objective list of the best games in history has appeared on the Internet. A user of the IGN portal has mathematically calculated the 500 best games of all time – for this, he studied dozens of ratings over the past 30 years.

For his calculations, the enthusiast took into account only those titles that fell into several similar ratings, and the final score was calculated by multiplying the average rating by the frequency of its appearance in the lists. For this reason, there are no recent hits in the top, such as Elden Ring and The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

  • So, the best game in history according to mathematical calculations was The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, released in 2017.
  • In second place was Tetris for the Game Boy, and in third was the original The Last of Us.
  • The top ten also includes Ocarina of Time, Half-Life 2, Super Mario 64, A Link to the Past, The Witcher 3, Resident Evil 4 and GTA V.

There are also many classics in the top – from CS 1.6 to the first StarCraft and Fallout. The full list can be found on the IGN website.

By the way, The World Ends With You (TWEWY) is in the 500th place – this is a very unusual role-playing game that was released on the Nintendo DS portable console in 2007. In it, players need to constantly wield the stylus, use both screens of the console, and even blow into the microphone.

Top 20 best games of all time

Previously, gamers have chosen the most anticipated games of autumn 2023 for PC, Xbox and PlayStation. The action game Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 won with half of the votes in the rating. The second most popular was Starfield – this is the first brand new IP from Bethesda, the developer of Skyrim and Fallout 4, in 25 years.

According to experts, the summer of 2023 is the best moment to build a gaming PC. Processors, RAM and SSDs are now record-breaking cheap, and after the “death” of mining, the situation has become noticeably better with the availability and price of new video cards.
