Best Video Games of All Time, Ranked by Fans  

These are the greatest games of all time, as voted on and reranked by gamers like yourself. Video games are more popular than ever. Since the early ’80 when gaming systems like Atari, Nintendo and Sega first took arcade favorite and made them available to a wider audience, video games have become a part of the pop culture lexicon. Many of the best video games are action and adventure games, usually with an ultimate goal to reach in the end. That could mean rescuing a princess, like in games like the Super Mario franchise and Legend of Zelda, or it could mean battling it out with iconic villains like in Goldeneye. Sometime whooping some butt is fun and if that’s your favorite type of video game, then you would be partial to the Grand Theft Auto franchise, Contra and Mortal Kombat as the best video games.

The 00’s produced some of the best video games of all time. Halo, Assassin’s Creed and The Sims have remained popular ten year after their respective releases. People love playing these games and they’ve taken their place as classics within the gaming community.
