This Tool Will Help You Figure Out Your Favorite Game

Popular walkthrough website GameFAQs.com is holding a best game ever poll, which prompted someone online to create a tool to help video game fans figure out they're personal favorite game of all time.

It's a time-consuming endeavor (I stopped doing it at about 30% in order to write up this story) but it's an interesting, often difficult exercise in selecting your favorite games. You can head here to try it yourself. Basically, it takes all 128 games featured on GameFAQs best game ever poll, and pits each one against one another asking you to select your preference. Sometimes (based on your personal preference) the winner is easy, sometimes it's a much more difficult selection. Obviously, not every game is featured on the list, but I bet many, if not all of your favorites, are.

According to its creator, the sorter can take between 127 and 448 "battles" in order to select one final favorite, which is why it has the potential to take some time. I had done about 200 "battles" and was only at about 30%, but fully plan on completing the survey to see which game comes out on top. I'm curious to see if it will differ from my typical favorite game of all time answer, which has been The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time since the first time I beat Ganon with the Master Sword.

Let us know your personal results below.
