Zelda: Breath Of The Wild is the best video game of the last 30 years says Edge magazine

Edge has got together with a number of esteemed game developers to work out the 100 best video games since the magazine began, and Zelda has come out on top.

Believe it or not, but Edge is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, having outlasted not only the whole video games magazine market but many game developers and publishers. It’s witnessed a lot of change in the games industry, over the last three decades, but has overseen relatively few 10/10 reviews – with the magazine being notoriously harsh with its scores.

It’s attempted to create lists of the best ever games in the past but this latest one involves not just past and current staffers but also prominent game developers including the likes of Sam Barlow, Mike Bithell, Dylan Cuthbert, Lucas Pope, Jade Raymond, Harvey Smith, Erik Wolpaw, and Shuhei Yoshida.

It’s not technically a list of the best games ever, as it only covers titles released from 1993 onwards, but it’s unlikely it would’ve been very different if it was over all-time. Especially as the number one game was Zelda: Breath Of The Wild .

Along with many others, we proclaimed Breath Of The Wild to be possibly the best game ever made when we first reviewed it, and interestingly Edge does include its sequel, Tears Of The Kingdom , but lower down at number 20.

We can understand that and, while you can argue about the order that the games are in, the whole list seems very solid, with a lot of deserving games recognised.

You’ll have to buy the magazine to see the full list but the top 10 is below and it features three Nintendo games in the top four, two of which are Zelda entries.

We’d place Bloodborne , which Edge has at number 12, above Dark Souls but there’s also two FromSoftware games in the top 10, with Elden Ring at number nine.

The entire top five are all Japanese made games, with six in the top 10 overall. The highest rated Western game is the original Halo at number six, which Edge originally gave a 10/10 score to.

The list does include some revisionism from Edge’s original reviews, where it famously gave Doom 7/10 on its initial release.

LittleBigPlanet also received one of the magazine’s coveted 10/10 scores but is nowhere to be found in the list. Grand Theft Auto 3 only got an 8/10 on its original release but is in the top 100, while GTA 4, which Edge gave a 10/10 to, is not.

No review should be considered as set in stone though and Edge has sensibly revised its opinion on several games over the years, as well as retroactively awarded scores to games released before it started.
