The 62 Best Video Games of All Time

Entertainment Everything Else Uncategorized

If you listened to the “It’s a Bit” podcast episode from May 25th, 2022, you know Wags, Bossman and I ranked our top five favorite video games of all time. But as I have revealed on the podcast, I actually have a list of 50+ video games that I ranked as THE best video games of all time. I am here to reveal said list. And I want you to know this list is the LIST. I decided this list is not a list drenched in opinion, but is set and stone. This is the list everyone should abide by when debating the greatest video games of all time.

DISCLAIMER: For some video games on this list, I may have only listed the franchise name rather than a specific game, meaning all titles in said franchise kick ass. Also, outside of the top 5, the titles are listed in mostly random order so do not criticize me, myself and I if you disagree with a specific game being “ranked” higher than another. The numbers do not matter. If it’s on the list, it simply means the game is a top 62 game, period. End of story. Again, not my list, but a list that comes from the depths of the Atari temple. You shall abide by this list. This is not MY list. This is YOUR list. Now, let’s get into it:

That’s it! That’s the list. No objections! None of these games have explanations as to why they were included in this list because they need no explanation. That’s why they’re on the damn list! They’re that good and it would be a disservice to my journalistic integrity to redundantly explain and defend these choices.

Thank you!
