I stole this idea from a PAX East panel. Basically, they had a generic top ten list and a group of developers took turns changing it. It's still going on, but I thought it would be interesting to see what DD does.

The rules:
-You may change one thing per turn. That can be either switching the places of two games already on the list or removing a game and replacing it with a different one.
-Give your rationale for your change.
-Don't make the same change twice in a row. For instance, if someone replaces Mario with Halo you'll have to wait several turns before replacing Halo with Mario. You can, however, replace Halo with something else or replace some other item on the list with Mario.
-Wait a while before taking a second turn. In the original game everyone got one turn and that was it. Because the DD community is slightly more limited, I think people can take more than one turn, but you should wait for at least four other people to take their turns, for the sake of diversity.

And now, the starter list:
1. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
2. Super Mario Galaxy
3. Grand Theft Auto IV
4. Super Mario World
5. Metroid Prime
6. SoulCalibur
7. The Orange Box
8. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
9. Super Metroid
10. Metal Gear Solid (Game Boy Color)

Have at it!

Enjoyed Galaxy, but it doesn't hold a candle to Mario 3. Most of those games really don't. It's the original revolutionize-er! lol

Clearly, MGS GBC was the black sheep on the list. I'm going with Grim Fandango because I would easily consider the best adventure game ever made. The story line was great the puzzles were challenging and overall it was a great way for the genre to end.

Most refined RTS out there, amazing single player, high “replayability” (especially with the custom games), and also because I'm a big fan of Esports.

I read somewhere the ninth was the series creators favorite, so by default I suppose it's the best in the series.
