I'm posting it here because found the top and bottom ten to be rather surprising.

Color a Dinosaur ranks above Tetris and LoZ? Lame.

I think that he posted that list upside-down.

TerraEsperZ, I thought your comment was about Metal Storm (which you're currently mapping) because the first time I saw the list, it was at the top, LOL.

You're right.  And here I thought that the guy just had terrible taste.



I guess I only visited the site once.  I did think that it was a little fishy that the guy claimed to rank 700+ games on his own, but I figured that a guy who would rank Punch Out at 765/777 would probably do just about anything.

The first time I visited that site, Qix was #1. Later, I looked, and Qix was dead last. =P

Someone should try to rank every game for real, though, that'd be neat, though obviously at least a few people are going to disagree in any case.



Though I can't imagine trying to get into the nitty-gritty of the difference of suckiness of the last couple hundred games (or more) not worth playing...I would probably have a bunch of them tied for last or make categories or tiers of games, with all those being in the "Not Worth Playing" section.



A lot of people say Friday The 13th was one of the worst NES games ever.  I'm really surprised at that.  There are surely lots of other games that are worse.

I've been meaning to make a Concordet-ish voting site - similar to http://thefairest.info/ - where you just get asked "which game is better" out of a choice of two. Mine was, of course, going to be for Sega 8-bit games. Feed in a few thousand votes and you can calculate the "consensus" ranking (the one which agrees with the maximum number of individual votes) and presto: a ranking that pleases as many people as possible.



The problem is the need for thousands of votes, and the difficulty to choose between closely-ranked games.
