2 Games can improve through a series while only adding minor tweaks. Do you give the ranking to the first game that added most of the content and concepts or do you give to a later game the improved on the first?
This is in a rough order from 1 to 10
Super Mario Brothers 3
Gran Turismo 2
Age of Empires 2
Metal Gear Solid
GTA: San Andreas
Tony Hawk Pro Skater
Mario Kart 64
I have to admit the list is a little bit last century.
Hon mentions would be Red Dead Redemption, Halo 3, Portal 2
I really like that list actually, though I never did get into Gran Turismo.
