Alone, I wander the Internet, seeking out injustice.....

I don't see a problem. Everyday they have a new set of games up sometimes newer games sometimes older games.

None of those games deserve to be called the best game ever.

Kingdom Hearts 2 was a really lousy game.

Oh so this was a best game ever poll. Provides some much needed clarification.

Of course all I see if people expressing opinion. How dare they!! (I hope my indignation was properly conveyed here).

This isn't the finals though, is it? Isn't it a huge ladder tournament thing?

Posted by DJ_Lae

If the problem is Kingdom Hearts II's mere existence on the poll, then yes, I see the problem.

If it's Shadow of Colossus not winning, that game was too clunky and ambitious for a platform that couldn't handle it to be considered one of the best games of all time. Of course, if Kingdom Hearts II deserves to be on the list, so does Shadow of the Colossus.

Edited by Red

Hah. You are all imbeciles.

Not all of these games came out in 05 (or 06)
They're doing it per year, right?
(also lacks Okami)


(Kingdom Hearts should also not be anywhere near Shadow of the Colossus on that list. Stupid eleven-year-old fanboys.)
Posted by ReyGitano

O_O I see the problem. The only game where you get a chainsaw, and therefore the only game that deserves to win, is gears, yet it's in last while get-your-head-chopped-off-by-a-chainsaw 4 is winning... stupid stupid people.

*insert sarcasm where needed

  1. It doesn't completely add up to 100%, just 99.9%
  2. They took our Game Logo Contest idea?
  3. A few years ago they decided  Final Fantasy VII as the best game of all time?
  4. Shadow of the Colossus needs 80.61% more of the vote?
Man, I really wanna know what's wrong with this poll.

Whats wrong with the poll is that Kingdom Hearts II and RE4 are beating Shadow of Colossus by a wide margin.
Posted by Steven

Give me a break, if you disagree then that's your opinion...but just because someone likes one game over another doesn't mean they're "wrong" and there definitely shouldn't be a cause for disgust.  I am curious about what you thought the results should've been...

Gamesfaqs is a website for game guides. RPGs/hard games tend to attract more people to go to their site looking for answers. They see a pole and vote.

Still not as bad as Deus Ex getting half as many votes as pokemon.

They have a different set of games each day(or is it week?)

Changing the point of discussion entirely, what do you think Team ICO's new project will be like?

Posted by animateria

Eh, who cares its a poll...

When did polls ever mean anything.

Chill out, and ignore silly stuff like that.

Posted by crunchUK

funny, because the latest GIANTBOMB poll disgusts me:

Poll: Fish & Chips vs. A Burger & Fries. The Ultimate Showdown!

Top pick - A Burger & Fries. Definitely! (63.4% of 82 votes cast)

What's wrong with the poll, really, is all of the games on there are bad and shouldn't be the top of anything.

Actually, fanboyism has nothing to do with this. I own Shadow of the Colossus. It's not a good game. The game I'd like to win would be Earthbound, Final Fantasy VI, Link to the Past, or Lost Odyssey. Beyond that, I don't really care.

I only call a game bad if it's bad. I'm not a fanboy against games, only for them.

...yes, because Lost Odyssey is a better game than Shadow of the Colossus. Shadow of the Colossus is a bad game.

Posted by Kraznor

Well, nice to see most of you correctly assumed my issue was with Shadow of the Colossus' poor showing and not something else entirely.

I understand polls are for people to express their opinions, I guess my love of SOTC just caused a momentary flush of internet rage when I saw that there were actually people that preferred Kingdom Hearts II over it. I beat Kingdom Hearts II, its okay but I would classify SOTC as extraordinary so there is no question in my mind which is more worthy of the title of "Best Game Ever". Really though, I just had a pretty bad day so I decided to take out some anger on strangers who never experienced SOTC or at least failed to appreciate it.

Oh, and I prefer Burgers and Fries over Fish n' Chips as well and I don't know what Team ICO's next project is but I hope the curtain is finally lifted on it at E3.

I actually have been following the poll. The favorites are ff7 and Ocarina of Time. Earthbound got knocked out in its first bracket. Lost to Super Mario World 2 and Chrono Trigger. Each round has 4 brackets. Each round goes by a certain time range (for this one its the 4th and last bracket of 2004-2006). The top two votes for each bracket go to the next. I have never played shadow of the colossus and don't fully know what it is. But I am surprised Gears is in last.

Also some of the gamefaqs listed favorites on the site page (not the official one because the official one every single vote if ff7 or ocarina of time with the exception of one for link to the past) which have been knocked out:

God of War
GTA: San Andreas
Tales of Symphonia
TES IV: Oblivion

Tales and Oblivion won

Halo 2
Metal Gear Solid 3
Okami
World of Warcraft

Mgs3 and WoW won. Surprising that Halo 2 got least.

Tomorrows Poll:
Final Fantasy XII
Half-Life 2
Phoenix Wright
Zelda: Twilight Princess

I advise most of you to go check out the poll. It is quite interesting.

Edited by HazBazz

These aren't the finalists for best game ever, if thats what you're whining about.
These are 4 games in the 2004-2006 quarter finals. Theres 16 games in each year group, heading right back to 1972. This page explains it

Oh and RE4 deserves to win that quarterfinal

Edit: Sorry, the next round is the quarterfinal. This is the 'Battlers' round

Posted by RHCPfan24

If you are suggesting that RE4 doesn't deserve those votes than....I disagree!!! Sure, I though SotC was one of the best games I played on the PS2, but RE4 is probably my favorite game ever. Of course, these are all opinions, and, whaddyaknow!, this poll is just an opinion too. No shame in voting for whatever title is there....except Kingdom Hearts II ;)

Kingdom Hearts. XD

Posted by Soap

Who really gives a shit what other people vote to be the best game anyway? Do you really reckon anything less than 90% of the people that voted on that poll are probably under 15 and no nothing about anything anyway?



.... Plus Shadow of the Colossus is awesome btw, to the person early who claimed it wasn't..... so is pokémon lol

Posted by Axersia

Aaaand... that's one more vote for KH2.

Thanks for reminding me.

50 Cent: Blood on the Sand better win!

Posted by Goly

I'm voting SOTC right now.

Posted by Kraznor

Also a fan of Resident Evil 4, that would probably be my second choice. The one I can't fathom is Kingdom Hearts II but apparently it has a strong following.

People will often choose the shiny new games over the older ones....

All these games are about the same age. In fact, Resident Evil 4 is the oldest game in the current round, which means that your theory is completely irrelevant in this case.
