| Top Ten Lists from around the world



List: Top Ten Videogames of all time

Date: July 2007

Source: Edge magazine (Future Publishing, UK)

Base: No data on numbers voting but Edge magazine is a popular and influential publication in the videogames world with a reader base that extends far beyond the shores of Great Britain.

Notes: Here is how Edge promoted the survey: "We received thousands of votes from Edge readers, with nominations for hundreds of games, spanning across the last three decades. Another round of voting involved creatives working in the videogame industry. And then there were the countless rounds of deliberation among the Edge editorial staff." Editor-in-chief, Tony Mott, said: "If you were new to video games and were going to go out and buy 100 games to make an instant collection, then these would be the games to buy. Ocarina of Time is nearly 10 years old, but its position at the top slot in Edge's 100 Best Videogames shows that great game design does not age. In visual terms, it obviously cannot compete with today's Xbox 360 and PS3 productions, but, as with many classics, its appeal is about so much more than its appearance." Ocarina of Time was the reader favourite as well as the overall winner. Only one PC game made the top 10 - the classic FP shooter 'Half Life 2'. Microsoft's Xbox also had only one representative in the list with 'Halo: Combat Evolved' coming in at number seven. Only five games for the next-gen consoles made the top 100 - Pro Evolution Soccer 6, at number 15, Oblivion, at number 19, Virtua Fighter 5, in 38th spot, Virtua Tennis 3 at number 80, and Crackdown at 100. Mr Mott said: "If we did this poll in five year's time, I would hope to see more PS3 and Xbox 360 games in the list. But I don't think anyone would argue we have seen that many classics in this new generation."
