The MyGaming readers have spoken, and Super Mario Bros. is the Greatest Game Ever Made.
1,437 people voted in the MyGaming survey, and the Italian plumber created by a Japanese company took top honours after kicking off with a slow start.
With 58 games nominated for the survey, the 1,437 votes were thinly split and Mario’s winning margin was less than half a percentage point, with Half-Life following close behind.
Here are the top 10 greatest games ever made, as voted by you.
1. Super Mario Bros. – 6.19%
The little plumber and his quest to to save the princess will go down as a game that shaped the industry. Have you finished it, though?
2. Half-Life – 5.85%
Half-Life, like Mario, made a huge impact on the world of gaming when it was released, and Valve can attributed a lot of its original success to the FPS title.
3. Half-Life 2 – 5.43%
Half-Life’s able sequel nearly managed to beat out its predecessor, missing the runner up spot by only a few votes.
4. StarCraft – 5.08%
5. Diablo 2 – 4.87%
Rounding off the top 10 (from 6 -10) were:
- Final Fantasy 7 – 4.45%
- Doom – 3.27%
- The Last of Us – 3.2%
- GTA 5 – 3.13%
- Quake – 3.06%
Games receiving no love whatsoever were: FEZ, Rayman Origins, Trine, and Warhammer 40k Dawn of War, all of which received zero votes.
