Time lists the 100 best video games by decade
Time has put out a list of what it considers to be the 100 greatest video games ever, and some of its entries caught us a bit by surprise. For instance, did you guys know that the 1972 PC game Hunt the Wumpus is one of the best video games ever made? Right up there with Shadow of the Colossus and Chrono Trigger, it turns out.

Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards? Yup, just as important as Metroid and Prince of Persia. We're not saying the list is wrong, per se, we just maybe wouldn't have put Solitaire on the same level as Myst. If anything, check out the full list here as a helpful shopping guide for the retro gamer on your holiday gift-giving list.
