IGN’s Top 100 Modern Games: Initial Thoughts

If you have regularly followed my blog, then you will know that I am a sucker for Top Ten Lists; for me they represent an easy and quantifiable way to get an opinion on a matter across, and I’ve covered a few subjects of the gaming world in my lists. IGN on the other hand, always go a few stages better than me. Ten times to be precise, by doing Top 100 lists, and on Monday they will be publishing a new list of what they see to be the Top 100 Modern Games, using the introduction of the Xbox 360 and the seventh generation of consoles as the cut off point for ‘modern gaming’.

Now I find this to be an intriguing concept for a list; the narrower you make the criteria, the more contentious some decisions can be, and given the outstanding quality of the games that we have been given over the past 6 years, I would expect there to be some fierce debate especially over the top positions. It must be said that IGN do have favourites, and there are some games I readily expect to be snaffling up the top ten positions, including the likes of Mass Effect 2, Grand Theft Auto 4, The Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Super Mario Galaxy 2. On Monday I will be posting the results of IGN’s list on my blog and doing a personal analysis of it, and who knows by the end of the day I may have been able to form my own opinions on what I feel to be the best modern games. In the meantime, why not check out my recent analysis of Sonic’s return to form in Sonic Generations and all my other blog posts, and in any case have a great weekend.

EDIT: The list is now up in full, please click here to view it on my blog.
