Welcome to our splash page for our Best Games of All Time list series.

On this page, you'll find links to our catalogue of ranked video game series lists — many of them reader-ranked via our site-wide User Ratings system — which showcases the best (and, conversely, the worst) entries in a selection of the biggest video game series in existence.

As you'd expect with this being a Nintendo-focused site, you'll find all the big-name Nintendo series represented below, plus a host of the biggest third-party franchises that have significant history on Nintendo platforms (with love for the likes of Capcom, Konami, Sega, Square Enix, and more) along with some of the biggest licensed game series going (your Spider-Men, your Star Warses, et al).

You can also find the Top 100 Nintendo Games of All Time in our article with that very title. Funny, that.

Ready to dive in? Let's-a-go!
