Skyrim Claims Number 1 Spot In Game Informer’s Chart Of Top 100 RPG Of All Time


When it comes to gaming, IGN and Game Informer are considered two best reporting sources and believe it or not both have issued their latest game ranking chart of Top 100 RPG of all time in space of a few days. You can see IGN’s list here and Game Informer’s latest magazine issue to find all the games that made it into the top RPG chart.

As is the case with any survey, these game charts have an element of subjectivity attached to them. This fact becomes even more apparent after seeing fans of RPG expressing their discontent over the best RPG of all time rankings. You cannot please everyone, there will always be those who disagree with ranking charts.

However, feedback from fans is at odds with the overwhelmingly positive response from critics that the latest Skyrim game managed to receive at the time of its launch late last year. Take Metacritic review scores for instance in which Skyrim managed to achieve 94 average score on PC, 92 on PS3 and a whopping 96 on Xbox 360. Moreover, ever increasing sales numbers are also indicating that the popularity of Skyrim isn’t going to fade anytime soon. The game sold 30 millions copies immediately after its release back in November 2016 and has continued to show upward trend aided by the Special Edition launch in October.

Despite the acclaims and huge sales figures, a large chunk of RPG gaming community has dished out scathing wave of criticism towards the latest entry in the popular game franchise who panned the developers from gravitating away from the core RPG elements that elevated Skyrim to the status of a cult classic.

As for IGN’s ranking list Skyrim made it to the number 25, where Sakaguchi’s Chrono Trigger grabbed the top spot. Developers Bethesda are working on the Nintendo Switch version of Skyrim which should be released sometime later this year. Whether it will be an original or remastered version remains to be seen.
