How to Figure Out Your Favorite Video Game of All Time
GameFAQS is one of the best resources for gaming information , and it just celebrated its 20th anniversary in November. To celebrate, they’re holding a Best Game Ever tournament where users vote on two pairs of games each day until one is declared the best game of all time.
You can view the current bracket here, but more interestingly, you can also hold your own tournament. Someone has created a page where you can compare the 128 games from the GameFAQS tournament yourself and figure out what your top games are.
You’ll see two titles at once. Click the one you like more, and it will be replaced with another title. If you like/hate both or don’t have an opinion, you can click I feel the same way about both to get a new pair.

Once you’re done, you’ll get a list of games you like in order, based on the results from your little tournament. This is more fun than the GameFAQS one since it’s your own preferences and you don’t have to wait over a month for the results. I was rushing a bit (and felt like I saw the same comparisons several times), so take my results with a grain of salt, but here are my top picks:
Not feeling it? You can use other websites to find out what the best games of all time are .
