The best games you can try right now!

This is a list of video games that have consistently been ranked among the best by video game journalists, critics and publications. It is largely based on "Top" type lists that list the best games ever in the publication's view, sometimes restricted to a time period or a "generation" of gaming systems. While any single publication's list reflects its own taste, when the lists are taken in aggregate, a handful of notable games have achieved something approaching critical consensus by multiple appearances in such lists, and often ranking highly when they do appear.
