If you feel like putting your 2 cents in, then go here and make your Top 25 favorite game of all time list (1st=25pts, 2nd=24pts, ..., 25th=1pt).

Here are current results involved 700 gamers so far.

Other top-lists are available (by year, decade, genre and systems) if you want to mess around with more of them.

Check out my own list of top games (what a great list, i know):
http://www.unikgamer.com/members/papissama-1.html

Post the link of your Top games and feel free to discuss your choices!
Check it out if you got a few minutes to spare, it's a really fun concept, especially if you're a longtime gamer (and bored )

Crazy list so far. Nice to see Nintendo favourites dominating it. 
 
I'll probably go make my list. Its sure to be fairly similar to what's displayed there.

@zudthespud:  Ha ha, zing! 
 
Only three of my top 22 games made the list since I was never a huge Nintendo fan and preferred Western RPGs to Final Fantasy back in the late 90's early 2000's.  (Fallout 3, Mass Effect 2 & Diablo II
 
EDIT: Make that two since Mass Effect 2 has been pushed from the top 25 as I write this.

In that case, it isn't real time.

Ehh, I really think Ocarina of Time is a little over rated. I can remember all of the wandering back and forth and finding stuff in the dungeons getting a little tedious. 
 And Pokemans? Really? 
 
PS: I'm not interested in a fanboy flame war. If Zelda and Pokemon are the greatest things of all time to you, then good for you. I won't begrudge your wrong-headedness if you won't begrudge mine. ;)

@McGhee_the_Insomniac: 
They only ranking their favorite games. No one chose the order of that greatest list. It's just that a lot of gamers chose Zelda and Pokemon as some of their favorites (not best)

It kind of just looks like a list of all the games people talk about already, and that data being presented in this way is not something uprising nor really interesting at all. 
 
It also seems to be be kind of a misnomer to call it "The Greatest Games of All Time" if it is supposed to people's favorites. 
 
Just, you know, pointing that out.

We made that site to centralize lists like yours. You should try it. I think you'll like it.

@LordXavierBritish: 
These games are the ones people talk about because they're people's favorite games. People only talk about their favorite things. If you see an obscure game that is already been ranked with a few points, at least you know you're not the only one liking this game. If that person left a comment on it, you click on him and see what games he likes. Soon we'll have a list of all the people that ranked a particular game (and the position).
 
I took the liberty of calling it greatest games of all time (within the site) since I believe the combination of every gamers lists can be called so.

@IceP42: Greatest implies some sense of significance. 
 
People vote based on nostalgia, there is never any credibility in it.

@LordXavierBritish: 
You might be right.
Everything coming out of these lists are purely subjective. I guess we're just doing it for the fun of showing which games we like and finding out what the majority of people is into.

 The 700 gamers mark has been reach!!

Ocarina of Time is still owning the competition. 177 people put it in their Top 25. I feel like a sell out since I ranked it 9th in my list.
For my defense OoT is the only game from the general Top 10 that is on my list.

Still I am glad to see Shadow of the Colossus in the Top 15. I'll doubt it'll stay that way when the gamer count reaches 1000 though.

Favoritest Games Evar!

1. Super Smash Bros. Melee

I've probably spent over 200 hours with this one. Suffice it to say, I was addicted. It got so bad that my brother and I brought our GameCube to our grandparents house to try to unlock Roy.

2. The Warriors

The best.

3. Backyard Baseball

Fuck the other ones, the original Backyard Baseball is kick ass.

4. Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

The game that made me sell my Xbox 360 for a PS3.

5. Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4

Even though I saw the whole story unfold on the ER, I was still totally immersed in the world of P4.

6. Fallout 3

Even with its flaws I love Fallout 3. All the little stories that could be found in the Wasteland made it incredible.

7. The Sims

Spent months with this one doing dumb shit with my Sims.

8. EarthBound
9. Psychonauts

Amazing story and style made up for the lackluster gameplay.

10. Rez

I love the style and vibe of Rez. Bonus points for the Trance Vibrator

11. Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo

Fun ass game with great personality.

12. Doom
And the rest: 
13: Pokemon Red/Blue 
14: GTA Vice City 
15: Mass Effect 2 
16: Guitar Hero 2 
17: Super Mario World 
18: God of War 2 
19: Max Payne 2 
20: Guitar Hero 
21: Goldeneye 007 
22: Super Mario Sunshine 
23: Mario Kart: Double Dash 
24: Civ 5 
25: MGS4

800 gamers have contributed so far!!
Out of these 803 gamers, 202 have Ocarina of Time in their list!! That's just crazyy!!

If you've made a list, don't be scared to be picked on and post it.
It's okay if you listed 3 Pokemon in your Top 25. Man up and be proud

PS: I've never played a Pokemon game yet, but I promise to try Black & White when it comes out!
