    SMB is an incredibly influential game. The greatest game of all time is always going to be an entirely subjective thing though because there's too much variance across genres and technological eras. How do you compare a platformer made in the mid 80s with a turn based strategy game made in 2011? No one will even be able to agree on what measurements should be used to define the greatest game of all time, let alone what game would take the prize if such a thing was possible.

    Anyway, my top 5 would be.

    Warcraft 3
    Civilization 4
    Quake 3
    Heroes of Might and Magic 3
    League of Legends (yeah I went there)

    Honorable mentions
    Diablo 2
    Starcraft
    Doom
    Street Fighter 2

    Probably forgotten a couple.

    and for me, can't go past Crash Bandicoot 2 and 3. So simple, so brainless, so awesome. More recently I'd say Warcraft 3, Civilisation 4, or the Half Life 2 series. Not really a large scale gamer.

    Would it be blasphemy to mention Fallout 3?

    The PES series for sporting games by a decent margin for mine.

    The Godfather, Bully and Batman: Arkham Asylum would make my top five.

    Obviously personal taste etc. but slightly surprised to not see a lot of recent games. Gaming is one of those things which has got better over time, in my opinion.

    halo ce, zelda-oot and cosmo in some order are absolutely miles ahead of the competition for me.

    Of the others, diablo 2, nba hang time, mario kart, best of the rest, then the sims, mortal combat (sega), goldeneye, nba 2k series, minesweeper, hearts, commander keen, duck hunter, metal slug, [will try to think of others]

    Honourable mentions to Ghost Recon Jungle Storm and Brian Lara Cricket 2005.

    Cricket games peaked with Brian Lara Cricket '99. I really wanted to like BLIC 2005 and 2007 but honestly they were terrible.

    I don't remember what BCL game it was but I played one on the PS2 which had challenger made i.e. reliving Sobers' 6 sixes, Sachin's debut, Botham's 149 etc., the game was not great but I really enjoyed playing challenger mode in that, my brother didn't like it half as much so cricket nerdom was probably involved in liking it that much.

    That was 2005. I think that game is overrated because of the classic mode. You take that out and you get a pretty **** game, especially in Test matches.

    I've played every one of them from '99 to '10 (the last edition didn't get much burn from me) and honestly, '99 was probably the most fun to play. 2007 was fun to play online though. I don't think the last two were called BCL though.

    EDIT: Yep. '07 was Ashes Cricket and '10 was International Cricket.

    Yes. It's like saying Mark Waugh's mum is the best Aussie batsman over the past 3 decades.

    Fallout 3 is beaten by Fallout 1, Fallout 2 and Fallout: New Vegas. Maybe even Fallout: Tactics.
