I swear, if a FPS is number one, I will be pissed off.
Yes, because any FPS at all, regardless of the quality of gameplay or storytelling or any indication of what makes a good game, making the top of the list would cement the fact that FPS is a lost genre.

The game I would like to see on here the most is Cave Story. It at least deserves to be in the top 25.
what would you do if Fire Emblem wasn't in the top 25?

I would be pissed off if pokémon wasn't in the top 25.

The only game that probably has a chance of making it onto the list at this point is Fire Emblem (as much as I think Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance was the perfect Fire Emblem game, even though I prefer Radiant Dawn I will admit it has its flaws, especially the difficulty).

cool to see Guitar Hero II on the list, that's basically what got me into music. disappointing to see Melee so low, but at least it's on the list. same for SF64.

...but what the hell is Words with Friends?

It's a game on the app market that's similiar to scrabble.
My question is what's Double Dribble? It's a stupid title

Wikipedia it. It's a popular basketball game for the NES.

You don't have to be so negative. I mean, each and every top 100 list ever created has its flaws. I always liked G4.

No, you're misunderstanding me, I checked out their videos and I couldn't stand watching them. I don't hate them for the list, I hate them because I hate their work.

I'm being negative because I have negative feeling towards them. I'm allowed to hate and like wha I want right?
 
Nega-Man said:
Sure you are, but I don't see what there is to hate about it.
I just hate how they do it. I watched and I cringed. I think it was a review of something and it felt like they were nitpicking all the smallest and most stupid things. I just rather a review that covers everything I'm looking for. Like reviews by screwattack, they're fair and they cover all the important stuff that a review needs.
