My reaction is

The World Gaming Executive network has recently surveyed 1000 developers for what they think is the best game of all time, and that is to include the survey in the first issue of its WGE Magazine. You may have not heard of World Gaming Executive, but many studios that you have hear of, including Blizzard, Apple and Ubisoft are part of the network.

The results of the survery are:

  • Baldur’s Gate (series)
  • Diablo (series)
  • Monkey Island (series)
  • Shadow of the Colussus
  • Mass Effect (series)
  • Batman: Arkham Asylum
  • StarCraft
  • The Legend of Zelda
  • Everquest
  • Devil May Cry
  • Tomb Raider  (series)
  • BioShock
  • Metal Gear Solid
  • World of Warcraft
  • Deus Ex
  • Super Mario (series)
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
  • Silent Hill
  • Assassin’s Creed
  • Dead Space
So there you go. Although there some suprises and some disappointments (the biggest one being Half Life series’ omission from the list), it is a generally balanced list (other than Half Life series missing from the list). Mind you, we can nitpick the list until we are blue in face (like talking about how the Half Life series is not included), but it is interesting to see what developers themselves think makes a good game (which apparently does not include the Half Life series).
Baldur’s Gate coming at top spot is a pleasant surprise; it’s nice to see recognition for the game. Baldur’s Gate was a series developed by Bioware, with the first game being released in 1998 and its sequel in 2000, with both recieving immense critical acclaim. It almost single-handedly revived computer RPGs, and is fondly remembered by CRPG gamers everywhere.
