The lba that is loved by so many, read in!

How hard is it for a game to get in the TOP 100 Awards, well think, you either need a great storyline with and adventure/action genre, or something so intelligent for the programming, that no one would believe it could happen, well pick up an issue 116 of pc gamer (i think the december issue), since you get "PC GAMER's TOP 100 Awards", here what it say's on the front cover "Before they escape our doomed planet, our heroes must choose just 100 games! Only these classics will be... PC GAMER Top 100 Awards Photographed in colour SAVED From OBLIVION" Now think 100 games (including the new one's) are going to be selected as the best games, with the thousends of games out, it is very hard to get in the top 100 awards, but without no suprise it has LBA in there, yes LBA! It become before Jedi Knight 2!, before Dungeon Keeper!, before Worms!, before Uplink!, and even before GTA 2 and Duke Nukem 3D!, and you keep on going down untill you get to lba, which is 79 in the charts, now to even get in the top 100 this year, 79 place, and last year 70 place, is very very hard, but for lba pip's easy. I type up what it exactly say's.

{
Electronis Arts, Release 1995, Last year 70
LITTLE BIG ADVENTURE
French developers are a wacky bunch, but ocasionally inspiration strikes and we get Little Big Adventure. One of the first CD games, the epic fantasy quest still warms the hearts of players around the world, and is argubly more charming and intricate tha it's full 3D sequel. We think just three names whenever someone mentions evil overlords: The Guardian. Shodan. Dr.Funfrock. Innocent, childlike thrills for all.
Saveed because: Its offbeat nature hides a deep and immersive journey.
}

One of the finest moments i think for lba, to be in the top 100 twice, maybe even more, since i only have this one, and tell's me also where it came last year.

Yes, fairly current.
hmz...I cant think of 9 better-then-lba games that have come out in the last few years.
The fact that lba is there shows the artical is fairly un-biased in terms of game age.
But still, 9 better then lba games in the last year??
no way!

Yep, LBA's still there, I have the PC Gamer Top 100 awards from last year and LBA is there as well, in fact I posted a thread about it too with a scan in of the artice Unfortunately, they had a totally wrong impression of the game and made it sound totally different :P

I don't think you can compare games like LBA and Duke3D, you can only compare them on success. But even the best games ever made don't have to be a success.
I didn't know Duke3D scored that low, it's a pretty good game, Jedi Knight 2 isn't a very good game

Well this is PC Gamer's point of view Although yeah, most of the games there are generally looked on as 'good games.'
