Everyone likes to argue over a list of best games, but it’s especially fun when a mainstream publication joins the fray. TIME’s top 100 list of best video games of all time runs in chronological order, kicking off with educational mainstay The Oregon Trail and ending with Mass Effect 3. Seven 70′s games appear, but only two games make the cut from the last two years, the afore-mentioned Mass Effect 3 and Batman: Arkham City. Otherwise, it’s a fairly even divide between the 80′s, 90′s and 00′s. Take a look, and don’t forget to exercise your frothing fanboy outrage in the comments when you notice Shooty Mc ShootShoot or Whimsical Indie are not included.

Time Magazine has gone “Top 10″ mental and has issed loads of lists on its website – but only one should be near and dear to your heart.
That would be the list of the top 10 videogames of 2009. Whether or not you agree with the list is entirely a matter of opinion, but here it is anyway:
Top 10 Video Games
- Modern Warfare 2
- Batman: Arkham Asylum
- DJ Hero
- New Super Mario Bros. Wii
- Geo-Defense Swarm
- Halo: ODST
- Assassin’s Creed 2
- Uncharted 2
If you thought anything else would be listed as number one, you are in denial and we pity you.
Just kidding. We still love you, just know we’re laughing at you secretly behind your back.

Time has named Xbox as a “top Microsoft moment,” lauding the firm for making the machine desirable for “gamers all over America.”
“Gates built buzz for the Xbox for over a year before unveiling the console at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January 2001,” said Time.
“By the holiday shopping season, gamers all over America wanted them, launching a three-way battle for video-game dominance between the Xbox, Sony’s PlayStation 2 and the Nintendo GameCube.
“More than 1,000 people lined up in Times Square to snag the first Xboxes at midnight on Nov. 15. Microsoft had a $500 million marketing budget for the game platform.”
More through there. Thanks, CVG.
