Fans and critics rarely agree, but when they do, we get these masterpieces
The (Objectively) Best Video Games of All Time!
Video game critics and regular gamers don't always see eye to eye. That was very much evident in our galleries covering the most critically acclaimed video games ever and the most beloved video games by fans. We did not have a single game that appeared on both lists. For this gallery, we picked the middle ground: releases that were rated high by both sides of Metacritic. We usually go for top 5s but we had such a strong four-way tie at the bottom that we decided to expand to a top 7. Here goes: the top 7 video games according to both critics and gamers. You can even say: the best games ever!
