12 Donkey Kong Country 2 : Diddy Kong's Quest
11 The Legend of Zelda : Ocarina of Time
10 Red Dead Redemption
8 Streets Of Rage 2
7 Katamari Damacy
6 Silent Hill -- IMO Silent Hill 2 is better than 1, but ok, that's fine.
5 Super Metroid
4 Megaman 2

3 The Last Of Us
2 Chrono Trigger
1 Ico -- this shouldn't be #1 but it belongs on a list, sure.

And here are the ones I pulled out and taking massive exception to, and why:

Quote
99 Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards -- no. LSL may be creepy and campy and I don't have a problem with people liking the game, but there's nothing memorable or impressive about this.
96 McDonald's Treasure Land Adventure -- obscurity for obscurity's sake. I find it irritating, and I like the retro stuff.
69 Crash Bandicoot -- really? Is there anyone among us who actually like to kick back to some Crash jams? So many other titular character-driven games didn't make it on here. I think they meant to put Banjo Kazooie here and screwed up.
62 Gone Home -- this list was HEAVY on indie, and I can get with that. But Gone Home's sound design has everything to do with the production: we find stuff on random cassette tapes, we get the voice-overs from the sister ... that stuff is all cool. But the music itself? Completely forgettable.
61 Golden Axe -- meh ... it's pretty good. But not good enough.
60 Dune II -- See 96
49 Ridge Racer 4 -- Only because I think they should've picked a different RR from the series than 4.
48 FTL: Faster Than Light -- Another indie that really doesn't belong here, or so high up. I can name 10 indie games with superior soundtracks to FTL. I'll start with DUST: An Elysian Tail, Lone Survivor, Offspring Fling!, Jamestown, To The Moon, and Tower of Heaven. Feel free to add your own.
47 Alien Soldier -- no
46 Quake -- double no
45 Fallout 3 -- the memorable parts of this OST IMO are the licensed tracks, which the list-makers said they were removing. The remainder, by Inon Zur ... I can dig Inon Zur sometimes. But this is FAR from his best work. Very very far.
19 Super Mario Bros. -- Okay, yes, these themes are super-memorable. Here's the problem. The list-makers said they wouldn't double-dip on a franchise unless there was really good reason to do so. Higher up on the list they had Mario 64, which ... yes. Great choice. But then they choice NES Bros over SNES World? Just in terms of quantity, World wins. And every single song in World is as memorable and enjoyable as the 4 songs in Bros.
9 Portal -- No no no no no. This is only here because we all love the campy "Still Alive" Glados vocals. The rest of us couldn't even recall or sing any other melody from this game. Portal 2 made vast improvements. But the first Portal? No. And certainly not this high up. This was a stupid choice.

Personally I think that top 100 is garbage. There  are alot of games that belong on there but the majority make me scratch my head and go eh for A top 100 all time list. The placement of said titles does not help any.
