Over 25 million votes later, the public have named God Of War the best game of all time

Unsurprisingly, there are two Grand Theft Auto games in the top 10.

Gaming bible IGN put it to the public to vote for the greatest video game of all time this week, and after 26,604,825 votes were counted, they confirmed that 2018's epic PS4 title God Of War has been crowned the greatest video game of all time.


While there were some golden oldies in the mix, including Tetris, Rock Band, Mario Kart, Final Fantasy VII, GoldenEye, Resident Evil 4, Halo 2 and Super Mario 64, as well as what many perceive to be "the most popular games in the world", including Fortnite, Apex Legends and Overwatch, in the end the top 10 spelled out very clearly what gamers want the most from the games.

Specifically, well-written and beautifully crafted single-player campaigns came out on top, with eight of the top 10 slots fitting that description.

And in even better news for those who put God Of War at the top of the list, the sequel is inbound, with the first gameplay trailer showing off some impressive action for the 2022 arrival:
