Polygon, the well-known American site, has recently accomplished 5 years of activity. Which way to best celebrate the occasion if you do not draw a ranking of the best 500 titles ever? 100 for every year of life. Difficult undertaking that obviously had to have rules to follow. As explained inarticle that introduced the ranking, the decision-making system was clear and concise. The participants (represented by the Polygon team and some specially invited freelancers) had to vote for their favorite 500 games. From the list of eligible titles, however, they had to be kept out of the games released in the 2017 and sequels which, in their opinion, were too similar to previous titles. Before personal taste, moreover, voters had to try to be as objective as possible and follow the two key parameters of the classification: innovation and durability.

Polygon
Will he be the discussed winner?

Usually, while we browse the "standard" classifications, to the pleasure and the curiosity is joined the perceived torment when the title to which we hold infinitely is not mentioned. Now, that in 500 positions our favorite games would have managed to find place was pretty obvious. In this respect, you can all be satisfied (but everyone is: even you who play daily to that tumor called LoL you will not feel excluded) (from joke, worse there is GTA 5 at the 37 ° place or the total lack of RPG worthy of the name ...) (no it's not true, looking back worse than League of Legends only microtransactions... ah, but wait ... League of Legends = microtransactions ... AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH!).
The one on which we are going to recriminate, therefore, will be the numbers of the chosen positions.
Example: it is obvious that Red Dead Redemption should be present in the ranking. But cazz *, not DUECENTOVENTIQUATTRESIMO!

Polygon
Or maybe him?

That said, I leave you to the full ranking Polygon license plate. I was undecided whether to spoil the first place or not, I want you instead to find out and decide what to think ... look good, because the ranking is in alphabetical order! (I'll give you a clue ... start with T).
