There have been numerous video game systems throughout the years, but which one is the best? Starting in the 70's the daddy of all home video game consoles, the Atari, was released. It introduced the world to games that were able to be played on your home television. With the rise of the arcade, people were jumping at the chance to take the video games home with them, and thus the popularity of the video game home system was born.

There have been many different companies that have tried to release video game systems throughout the years. Companies like Atari, Sega, Nintendo, Coleco, Microsoft, and many more. Each of these companies have released a number of different consoles as the years and technology have progressed. Nintendo has had the NES, Super NES, Nintendo 64, Gamecube and Wii. (This is not even including the portable systems like Gameboy, DS and 3DS.) Sony has their Playstation 1, 2 and PS3, along with their Vita and PSP. Sega had the Mastersystem, Genesis, Saturn and Dreamcast. Microsoft had the Xbox and Xbox 360.

After the mid-90's the playing field drastically changed and most other companies fell away since they couldn't keep up with the advancing technology. The big 3, Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft came out the clear winners. This is a list of the best video game console systems of all time so feel free to vote for your favorite and add any that aren't here.

<![CDATA[The Best Video Games of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-best-games-of-all-time
These are the greatest games of all time, as voted on and reranked by gamers like yourself. Video games are more popular than ever. Since the early '80 when gaming systems like Atari, Nintendo and Sega first took arcade favorite and made them available to a wider audience, video games have become a part of the pop culture lexicon. Many of the best video games are action and adventure games, usually with an ultimate goal to reach in the end. That could mean rescuing a princess, like in games like the Super Mario franchise and Legend of Zelda, or it could mean battling it out with iconic villains like in Goldeneye. Sometime whooping some butt is fun and if that's your favorite type of video game, then you would be partial to the Grand Theft Auto franchise, Contra and Mortal Kombat as the best video games.

The 00's produced some of the best video games of all time. Halo, Assassin's Creed and The Sims have remained popular ten year after their respective releases. People love playing these games and they've taken their place as classics within the gaming community. 

Vote for your favorite games on this Ultimate List of The Best Video Games of All Time. If there are any of your favorite video games that aren't on this list, feel free to add them.

<![CDATA[The Best Board Games of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-best-board-games-of-all-time
The best board games ever made, ranked by aficionados and casual players (For a full list check out Ranker's List of All Board Games). What are the greatest board games ever? The classic games that have entertained families of players for decades? Or innovative new table-top role playing games pushing the boundaries between fiction and reality? This list attempts to determine, once and for all, which are the greatest and most fun board games of all time.

A board game here is defined as any game in which pieces are placed on or moved around a flat surface, such as a board. This would include classic centuries-old board games such as Go, Chess, and Checkers, along with more modern games like Settlers of Catan, or even some role-playing games involving game pieces or miniatures. What are the best board games ever? What's the best board game for two people? What's the best board game for groups?

Some games still utilize game pieces but are built more around live interaction or conversation rather than traditional "turn-based" board games. These games – such as Scattergories or Taboo – may not meet the strict definition of a board game, but nonetheless resemble board game-style play and entertainment enough to warrant inclusion.

This list was determined by allowing users to make lists of suggestions for the greatest board games ever, and then holding an open vote on which games were actually the best of all time. Whether you are a hardcore board game geek or just a casual player, your votes count here. If you don't see your favorite board games on the list, add your own list and suggest them. And don't forget to vote on the best games on the list already to ensure they rise to the top! If your mind needs some board game refreshment check out the complete list of board games.

<![CDATA[The Greatest RPG Video Games Ever Made]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-greatest-rpg-video-games-ever-made
This list shows the ranking of the best pure Role-Playing Games, Action-RPG hybrids and MMORPG's of all time, as voted on by the Ranker Community. The popularity of role-playing games far predates video game technology entirely, and many of the genre's standards, settings and concepts continue to draw strong influence from the pen-and-paper games of the past (particularly the granddaddy of them all, Dungeons & Dragons, or D&D.)

In traditional Role-Playing Games, the player controls a character in a fictional world or setting, and takes a strong hand in determining how that character chooses to progress through the environment. This can involve determining the character's nature and outlook, his or her development through quests and missions and potentially joining up with other characters, either NPC or representing other human players. They tend to be more character and plot-driven games in many ways, as opposed to games that put more emphasis on stealth, puzzle-solving or combat. In some ways, new technology has simply made RPG's easier to organize and faster to play through, removing the need for a "gamemaster" and reliance on dice or other physical means of determining game outcomes.

Many of the most popular RPGs are part of a larger franchise, set in a familiar world that has been established over the course of numerous games (and sometimes tie-in novels, short films or other media.) The "Final Fantasy" RPG franchise is perhaps the most significant and long-standing in video game history, and in fact at this point has branched out beyond traditional role-playing games to include entires focused on tactical role-playing, action role-playing, MMORPG's, racing games, third person shooters and even rhythm and fighting games. It has also inspired numerous animated films, tie in novels and comic books.

(Unlike many other RPG series that are all based in a single setting or universe - such as the "Elder Scrolls" series Tamriel or Azeroth from Blizzard's "Warcraft" games - "Final Fantasy" entries tend to take place in different settings and have sharply distinguished plotlines.)

<![CDATA[Video Games That Should Be Movies]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/video-games-that-should-be-movies
What video games should be movies? Several of the most well known and popular video games of all time could easily be made into potentially excellent feature films. This list includes several of the biggest and best video games ever: Assassin's Creed, BioShock and some of the Zelda and Grand Theft Auto games as well. Vote for the games you think would make the best movies, vote down any that you don't think would work and of course, add any that might be missing. You can also rerank this list in any order you want.

Adapting a great video game into a movie is a risky proposition. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it just doesn't. You can't blame Hollywood for trying though, because the video gaming industry is a billion dollar business. Combine that with a hit feature film, and you've got tens of billions in potential profit. Examples? How about 1995's 'Mortal Kombat' or the 'Lara Croft Tomb Raider' series? And of course, the 'Resident Evil' movies have done quite well at the box office too.

Which current video games should be made, immediately, into a movie? Some of the best include 'Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic' and 'Batman: Arkham Asylum.' Here's a great fancast for 'Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic' as an example. The main requirement to make a successful video game to movie adaptation? You need the most compelling video game storylines. Start with the basics, and go from there - you can't lose!
