Japanese Pick Top 100 Video Games of All Time
It seems Famitsu (a Japanese video game magazine) ran a poll asking readers to pick the top 100 video games of all time. Next Generation has the results:
- Final Fantasy X (2001)
- Final Fantasy VII (1997)
- Dragon Quest III (1988)
- Dragon Quest VIII (2004)
- Machi (1998)
- Final Fantasy IV (1991)
- Tactics Ogre (1995)
- Final Fantasy III (1990)
- Dragon Quest VII (2000)
- Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (1998)
Apparently, Japanese gamers like their RPGs! The whole list is pretty much dominated by RPGs with a Mario game here and a Sonic game there. Strangely, Super Mario RPG didn’t make the list.
Another thing I noticed was that Final Fantasy X-2 sat pretty high at 32nd place. It beat The Legend of Zelda. Think about that. The. Legend. of. Zelda. I think the Japanese have finally lost it. Seriously.
