Diablo II #19 All Time Video Game

G4TV posted a list of the top 100 video games of all time, and Diablo II came in at #19. Their short video about it is singularly useless and uninformative, unless you’d forgotten what a level 2 Barbarian looks like while smashing Fallen, but you can watch it below if you like.

I’d like to comment on some other games on the list and their positions, but if there’s a master list I can’t find it, and I don’t care enough to click through one page at a time.

  1. I guess grtz but SC1 and WOW are ahead of it.

    As for these kinds of useless lists anyway: shrug.

    The only thing that really really matters in this world is HOW successful something is.

    The rest is rather meaningless.

  2. Hmm interesting only one thing that I don’t like is this in that list, they got multiple games there that come from the same series I think I counted 4 Mario games, 2 street fighters etc. Should of thinned these out a bit IMO. Also only RTS in it is SC2 it a good game but it not the best RTS ever (at lest if I go by review scores).
    An other bugbear is a game that got in it only because it was the 1st of it kind (#77 Excitebike, based on the write up) so where the other ground breakers?

    • My list WOW – COD – Pokemon – Pac Man – Donkey Kong.

      Simply by the sheer number of players and money generated.

      You can have # players or # money, but when both are combined there is no discussion in such kinds of lists.

  3. FF6 is the best game ever made. It’s a true work of art. And not even on there. Bleh.

  4. BioShock at #3?! Please share with me what I missed that’s worthy of such praise since I decided to stop playing the game after an hour…

  5. No Heroes of might and Magic 3?
    What a shame! Fallout 3 is here, but nothing for Fallout 1&2..Planescape Torment is again forgotten.
    And who would deny the power of Jagged Alliance 2?
