--> Read the article and their comments for each game on their list.

 

I'd say God of War II doesn't belong in the #1 spot and is probably only there because it's a recent game. At the same time, I haven't really played any of these games, so I'd be the wrong person to comment on this one. I'd like to know your thoughts on their list though. :P

GoW2 should get out of #1. Silent Hill 2 should be bumped up, and GTA:VC, FFXII and Black should get off the list altogether.

I've only played maybe 7-8 of these myself, mostly their Xbox counterparts too. I use different consoles for different types of games, so I never play a big range of games/genres on just one platform. PS2/DC I would mostly use for shooters (like R-Type, Raiden not FPS), so most of these I will never play.

 

Why 36 anyway? Is it due to the fact that there are a million 'best of' lists already and this is the only way remaining to differentiate between them :P

 

EDIT :

 

GoW2 should get out of #1. Silent Hill 2 should be bumped up, and GTA:VC, FFXII and Black should get off the list altogether.

 

VC is indisputably deserving of at least a top 36 place. Maybe it's just the 80s theme that gets me but come on!

I agree on some some games but they are at the wrong places. We debated on this similiar issue before ex: best fight game, best rpg, best action, etc...So to put the top 36 games in a list is a joke It's just a way for gamepro to attract buyers.

Okami should take the place of Vice City if you ask me, and other games nee dthier grade bumped too. All in all though, I think it is a good list.

 

I should pick up both Psi-Ops and Freedom Fighters.

That is a decent list for me. But these Lego games are terrible.

Eh, out of all the games that I've played there, I enjoyed GOW2 the most.

Looking at the list makes me wonder if these people even played some of those games.

Black is God Awful

I wouldn't say it's god awful, but it has tons of issues, and some of them make you want to beat the developers with a baseball bat.
