Choosing the 100 Greatest Games Ever is no easy task, especially when there are decades upon decades of titles to chose from. This isn’t the best Xbox 360 games, best shooters or best mobile games. Instead, what we have here is a definitive list of the 100 best games ever made. Included are classics that play just as well today as they did when they were first released right alongside newer titles that have amazed us.

In compiling this list we decided on one restriction – only one game per series. This lead to some very tough decisions. For example, that means one game from the Legend of Zelda series was included. More than a few worthy games will get overlooked as a result, but picking the best that each series had to offer brings you a list of greatest games with more variety.

Games from every era, system and genre are covered here. Let us know what you think by leaving your comments below. What games did we leave out? Did we pick the right title from each legendary game series? Even when you don’t agree, we hope you’ll come out of this list of the 100 Greatest Game Ever discovering a few for the first time and wanting to play others all over again.
