The Top 200 Video Games of All-Time: #131-140

Our list of the top 200 video games of all-time (as voted on by our fans) continues with the #’s 131-140 so let’s get to it…

140) Tiger Heli
Tiger Heli is a vertical scrolling shooter that puts you in the control of a helicopter, while you take on hordes of enemies armed with tanks, battleships, and artillery. With a total of four stages and a goal of getting the highest score. Tiger Heli is a good time with friends but definitely has its frustrations.
139) Super Smash Bros Brawl
Many feel this is the best entry in the Super Smash series as it capitalized on the Wii’s tremendous success and provided not only a great variance of characters and stages (80 combined) but in strategy as well with the different controller options (Wiimote, classic, nunchuck and GameCube options) that were made available. Even as this series continues on with an updated version for the Switch, Super Smash Bros Brawl still stands out as one of the best games for the Nintendo Wii console.
138) Star Wars: The Old Republic
This MMORPG developed by BioWare and is said to be one of the most expensive games ever made. With different classes to choose from, extensive customization options, fully voiced dialogue, and dialogue options, they went all out for this adventure into a galaxy far far away. The plot of Star Wars: The Old Republic takes place 300 years after Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, in the midst of the battle between the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic, more than 3,000 years before the events of the Star Wars films. With six add ons and a few novels to supplement the massive story, you can easily devote several years of your life to this game and everything it offers.
137) Speed Rumbler
Known as Rush & Crash in Japan arcades in the mid-’80s, Speed Rumbler is a top-down car shooter had the player slipping and sliding in all directions while simultaneously trying to avoid and shoot at a variety of enemies and obstacles. Seemingly lost among the past of arcade classics gone by, the game did find a new life for a period of time as part of the Capcom Classics Collection vol. 2 for the Playstation 2 and Xbox consoles.
136) Silent Hill
One of the most beloved survival horror franchises in gaming, the Silent Hill series has seen many highs and lows when it comes to its overall success but it’s 1999 original still stands out as a benchmark for the entire genre. Konami gambled that gamers would be interested in broadening their pallet beyond the Resident Evil series when it comes to horror and jump scares in a video game setting and it first they were correct as this entry introduced a marketed competitor to RE for many years until the series fell on hard times the earlier part of this decade and a failed Kojima revival did not come to fruition. Here’s hoping Silent Hill will someday get the reboot and/or re-imagining the initial outing deserves.
135) Policenauts
One of the hidden gems in the resume of vaunted game designer Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear series), Policenauts stands out for its innovative cutscenes and sci-fi narrative. Although this game never officially released outside of Japan it has still found its way to many Kojima enthusiasts intrigued by this point and click adventure which is part buddy cop/part space adventure as they search for a murderer delves into a deeper look into a proposed future of organized crime. English localization has been made available for both console versions available with bonus points for the Saturn copy if you have a light gun still available.
134) Pokemon Blue
Much like its red counterpart, Pokemon Blue has you scouring the Kanto region for Pokemon, gathering badges, taking on your rival, and conquering the Elite Four. With solid reviews across the board, Pokemon Blue was a game that every kid had in their collection. With Pokemon making the jump on the Nintendo Switch in November, let’s hope that this blue classic gets a remaster for a new generation of pokemon trainers.
133) Paperboy
If you ever wondered why there isn’t a good newspaper delivery boy simulator it’s because nothing will ever live up to this 1985 arcade game. Developed by Atari Games, Paperboy puts you in the shoes of a newspaper delivery boy as you attempt to deliver newspapers, vandalize the houses of non-subscribers, and avoid all of the hazards in the streets. A sequel was developed and released in 1991, but this classic has remained quiet ever since.
132) New Super Mario Bros Wii
Thanks to the Nintendo Wii and after failed attempts to integrate it into the Mario 64, Shigeru Miyamoto was finally able to explore his ideas of cooperative multiplayer in the side-scrolling follow up to New Super Mario Bros on the Nintendo DS. Though some gamers and critics were disappointed by the lack of new content, New Super Mario Bros Wii was released to good reviews and helped revitalized falling Nintendo Wii sales.
131) Mortal Kombat 2
A sequel to the hyper-violent hit in the arcades, Mortal Kombat 2 took the gruesome fatalities and intense fighting action to an even higher level. MK2proved to be an even bigger success both in homes and malls across the world as the home version’s first week of sales even outpaced similar openings from films at the time such as The Lion KingForrest Gump, and True Lies.
