Earlier today, we were on the topic of video games and we ended up talking about the website Metacritic which recently took the average reviews of all the video games to find the best videos games of all time!


All the games are from across all platforms and they do note that they only considered each game once, so if it's been released on multiple platforms, they just counted the one with the highest score.


Here is the top 20 video games: 


1. "The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time"

2. "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2"

3. "Grand Theft Auto IV"

4. "SoulCalibur"

5. "Super Mario Galaxy"

6. "Super Mario Galaxy 2"

7. "Red Dead Redemption 2"

8. "Grand Theft Auto V"

9. "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild"

10. "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3"

11. "Perfect Dark"

12. "Metroid Prime"

13. "Grand Theft Auto III"

14. "Super Mario Odyssey"

15. "Halo: Combat Evolved" 

16. "NFL 2K1"

17. "Half-Life 2"

18. "BioShock"

19. "GoldenEye 007"
