Here Are The Game Informer Crew’s Personal Top 10 Games Of All Time

Our Top 300 Games Of All Time list is a collective work. We introduce, argue for, and cement games as “The Greatest Of All Time” based on a number of factors like impact, cultural importance, and sheer quality. But sometimes, it’s hard to make conclusive cases for our personal favorites, whether that means placing them higher on the list (where they rightfully belong), or putting them on the list at all. Sometimes we argue they should have made it on the list, while other times, we acknowledge the subtle difference between “best” and “favorite.”

So without further ado, The Game Informer crew have compiled their personal lists of their favorite games of all time. You’ll find a lot of crossover with out 300 list and see where our top picks came from, as well as slivers of disappointment when you see a top pick that didn’t make our list.
