The Top 100 Video Games that Didn't Make IGN's Top 100 Video Games of All-Time (2018)

March 31, 2018
Back to the pwnBlog
This weekend, IGN released their latest version of the "Top 100 Video Games of All-Time" (check it out here). It's an update on the 2015 version. We are excited to get it added to our scoring system.

The first half of IGN's top 100 was pretty much chalk, compared to the pwnRank Top 100, with only a couple of exceptions. However, the second half was all over the place, and left many people scratching their heads (Final Fantasy VII at #99?). Take a look at the Top 100 Video Games that didn't make IGN's Top 100 Video Games of All-Time, according to pwnRank.com.
