The 50 greatest Videogames of all time!

At (A swedish game forum for people who write for/read the swedish game magazine LEVEL, or just if you want to discuss video games in general) i have during the last year put together a list of the 50 greatest video games i have played! (This list was made in the beginning of June 2009, so games that i have played after that is not included here. Maybe a new Top 50-list will be created in a few years…)

So, here is the complete list! (The whole list was written in swedish with a wall-of-text for every game, so i have just written down a short note about some games…)

8: Goldeneye 007 (Nintendo 64)

“For me – this is the best game ever made.”
