The EZA Top 100 Videogames!



  • I know it essentially makes me a heathen but... I think Chrono Trigger is okay. I recently played through it for the first time at the beginning of this year and I had a decent time. I love the concept to death and I'm surprised very few games have ever really attempted it again, but a lot of the encounters are hit/miss for me. Praise I will give to the game - Frog is a badass and that music is classic.



  • SM64 is a game I'm a bit ambivalent about. Mario's animation is amazing though.

    Chrono Trigger I've never played, but I love the genre. I'm going through Square's RPGs by release order and I'm at FFV, so I'll probably get around to it in a year or two.



  • @SabotageTheTruth same here, I played it this year for the first time, and it was ok, a product of its for sure, but hardly something that I'd consider amongst the greats



  • Chrono Trigger is a treasure, literally. I once found a Snes copy in box, next to the trash pile at the apartment complex I lived at. I sold that boxed copy of Chrono Trigger for 400 bucks on ebay.

    I love you Chrono Trigger!



  • Holy crap, 4 people (including me :D) voted Chrono Trigger number 1 and it STILL couldn't crack the top 10? Damn, guys.
    I'll reserve any complaints I have until I see the rest of the list, but man, I was really expecting it to be higher. The pacing, characters, battle mechanics, art, music... everything about this game is top notch for me. It just makes me feel good.



  • 12. Super Mario 64
    Revolutionary, this game alone sold the N64 to me.

    11. Chrono Trigger
    Another case of no nostalgia thanks to Square's EU ignorance, and even when we got the PS1 ports of FF4-6, we didn't got CT's port for whatever dumb reason (can't be translating costs because the FF ports where all english only), it took till the DS version that I got to play this game and that's why it's only my #18, at that time I had already played many fantastic games, if I had played it on SNES back in the days it would be higher for sure.



  • maybe dark souls wont make it...

    still hanging on for legend of dragoon (theres no chance its was like a 100-80th game)

    10. Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 (incl. P4G) (2008) - 243 Points - 13 Votes - Highest Vote: #1 bard91

    Developer: Atlus
    Publisher: Atlus/Square Enix/ NIS America
    Genre: RPG
    Platform(s): PlayStation 2, PlayStation Vita

    Recently, strange murders began to occur in the quiet Japanese town Inaba. People are found dead under mysterious circumstances, and rumors say that something very wrong is going on with local TV system. A high school student moves into town, living at the house of his uncle, a police detective named Ryotaro Dojima. Shortly after his arrival, a TV announcer is found dead, her body hanging on a TV antenna. A while later, the student who discovered the victim is found dead as well. The new student and his friends accidentally discover that a parallel world exists within the realm of television, populated by supernatural creatures known as Shadows. The young people also find out that their own Shadow Selves are able to grant them unique powers. They must travel into that mysterious world and find out who is responsible for the murders.

    Persona 4 is a Japanese-style role-playing game with light social simulation elements, similar in concept to its predecessor. The player controls a party of characters who must solve the crimes by venturing into the TV world and exploring its dungeons. Each dungeon is associated with a potential victim and carries a unique theme; their layouts, however, are randomly generated. Enemies are visible on screen, and contact with them leads to turn-based battles, which heavily rely on exploiting enemy weaknesses and unleashing powerful attacks after having successfully knocked them down. As opposed to the previous game, the player can issue direct commands to the main character's companions during battles. Similarly to other Persona games, characters' abilities and attributes change by merging them with supernatural beings known as Personae, which can also be fused at special locations to create more powerful ones.

  • well were in the top 10

    i must be in the minority that likes persona 3 more then 4



  • Persona 3 has the better setting and the better overall story arc, but the characters in Persona 4 blow the ones in P3 out of the water imo. They are both close, P4 gets the nod from me!



  • And Persona 4 is in the top 10! @bard91 defending their favorite game when I can't predict a thing. Also, counter to what I thought, a LOT of votes. And votes that are both ends of the spectrum: Either REALLY high, or just making it. It's something that I have no interest in but I'm... affirmed? reassured?... Nah, those don't work. Oh well. At least its a positive feeling Persona is in the top 10 of a EZA community list.



  • my predictions

    1.ocarina of time
    2.Final fantasy 7
    3.Last of Us
    4.Dark souls
    5.Mario 3

    1. mario
    2. San Andreas
    3. Witcher 3
    4. Metal Gear Solid


  • I was really hoping Persona 4 would take number one, even if I didn't pick it as my number one. I know that doesn't make a lot of sense, but I just want Ben to be proud of us.



  • @SabotageTheTruth i think one of ocarina of time,ff7 or last of us will be number 1



  • Persona 4 in the top 10 woot woot!



  • @FF7Cloud I hope for all of our sakes FF7 is the one that takes that honor.



  • @SabotageTheTruth it wasnt my no 1 on my list so hopefully it dosnt lose by like 1 point



  • @SabotageTheTruth @FF7Cloud I'm just happy it'll place high. And it'll place.



  • exhales

    I guess that number ten is ... acceptable...

    In all honesty I never had a doubt that we would see it on the list, it was just a matter of seeing where we would see it, and while I hoped it would be a little higher, just seeing the games that come right before it (and the ones that are probably coming), and considering that Persona really is dwarfed when compared to the other games that are near the top, in terms of brand recognition, I can't really underestimate the fact that this is a great position for it on the list.

    Now I can only hope that what some have said is true, and P5 is a better game, and that come february you heathens and non believers will wake up to the glory that is Persona!!!

    Until then I guess I'll take the highest "small" game on the list.



  • 11. Chrono Trigger

    What a game! Extremely fun combat system, the double and triple techs are spectacular and satisfying, and the fact you can avoid enemies in the world makes it refreshing as opposed to random encounters.

    The story and characters were very involving and delivered some truly emotional moments. The character design... what beautiful sprites (Akira Toriyama FTW)! The soundtrack is up there with the very best Final Fantasy ones.

    I've never had the chance to play Chrono Cross but I heard many good things about it, does anyone here have thoughts to share about that one?
