Game Informer Readers' Favorite Games Of Popular Series

by Brian Shea on Apr 23, 2019 at 01:17 PM

Debating the best game in a series is an age-old pastime for gamers across the world. While there will rarely be definitive answers about the subjective "best" game in a popular series, we can certainly work to figure out which games are our readers' favorites.

Ever since our new website launched in June 2018, we've been running polls on our homepage. While we sometimes ask more topical questions, we often ask about your favorite game in a particular series. We've gathered the results of those polls in one handy article.

Here are the favorite games of our readership as determined by the homepage polls.
