      What a ridiculously long list. Think of a game that came out in 09 and chances are its on there.
      I cant wait for their top 5000 games of all time.

      RE 5 being there is sad.

      then again it’s a top 50, not 10.

      Seriously – how worthless is a top 50 list? Maybe GI needs some more Ads in the Mag an nintendoWhatSoEver clicks on the site?

      In alphabetical order … buahahahaaa!

    8. Gurdil

      I found one that’s not in there! Do I win a prize for this achievement? :p
      Just FYI I found TH: Ride and yes it’s a bloody achievement to find a game that’s not in there, some games I don’t even know are in! WTF is “A boy and his blob”?!?
      Plus they got bad tastes… I was so eager to play Brutal Legend but then I did… And THAT was my mistake! Great universe but bad game :s

      I actually prefer the lists being given out in alphabetical order. You get a list of great games and no ridiculous whining because “Maniacal Warlords 10 was two places higher than Evisceration Bitches 2 which is clearly ridiculous you’re so fucking biased you knob ends I bet you get bungs from the industry blah blah blah”. 50 is a few too many, though.

      No Trials HD. FAIL.

      #10 5 years ago
    11. Psychotext

      Actually… yeah. Trials HD was considerably better than a lot of the games in that list.

      i was absolutely obsessed with that game for the first three days, i haven’t been that addicted to a game for a very long time, and i’m fucking terrible at it :)

      its cool because i’ve got 5 real friends (as in, not just met over xbox friends) and we all compete for the top spot for each course, which really injected alot of replay value

      That’s the beauty of Trials HD. It has a sort of “time-shift” multiplayer feel to it.
