Guinness World Records has announced the all-time Top 50 Videogame Series as voted on by readers, and it looks like Halo, Call of Duty, and Zelda are the series over 13K of you loved the most.

The list is currently featured in the Guinness World Records 2010 Gamer’s Edition, which in turn lists all titles created for each of the series.

“We decided to take a different approach with this list than we did in the previous edition,” said Guinness gaming editor Gaz Deaves.

“Instead of asking developers, industry insiders and journalists to rank their favorite titles, we approached a different kind of expert: the players themselves.

“We are confident that this ‘top 50′ more accurately reflects the tastes of the average gamer and not just the critics.”

Here’s the list in its entirety:

  1. Halo
  2. Call of Duty
