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 Movies Based on TV Shows]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-movies-based-on-tv-shows/ranker-film
The best movies based on TV shows are those legendary movies that spawned from our favorite TV shows of all time. It's really easy to make a horrible film adaptation of a favorite book, television show or classic film. These great TV shows turned into movies are the exact opposite. With numerous successful films to its resume, the "Star Trek" franchise perhaps saw the best success on the big screen. Based on the classic television series, the science fiction franchise has prompted so many great movies dating back from the original film in 1979 to modern adaptations released as recently as May 2013. 

That's not to say that other television shows adapted into movies are not awesome too. "The Fugitive," "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," "Traffic" and "The Naked Gun" are all prime examples of filmmakers taking a TV series and turning it into an equally, if not more, successful movie. In some cases, filmmakers did this simply from a character or sketch from a show such as in cases of "Borat," "Wayne's World," "The Blues Brothers" and "Bruno."

But for every great movie based on a TV show, there are also dozens of bad movies adapted from television shows. Thankfully, these are the best of the bunch. Which TV show to movie adaptation is the absolute best? Vote for them below!

<![CDATA[The Best TV Villains of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-tv-villains-of-all-time
The best TV villains of all time rank among some of the greatest TV characters of all time as well as some of the creepiest TV characters ever. While some TV villains exist to make the lead characters appear more heroic, some of them are just plain old, nasty jerks. Regardless of their motivations, the top TV bad guys make us want to bust into the TV and kick some butt, fictional style.

Many of TV's greatest greatest villains didn't start that way; some of these men and women started out as virtuous people who took a skid into the darker ways of the world. Think of Breaking Bad's Gustavo Fring, a legitimate business man turned meth trafficking d-bag. Or Dexter Morgan who started out killing only bad guys and then went and got tangled up with killing people as a CYA offensive action. Of course, there's also people like Game of Throne's Joffrey Baratheon and The Simpsons' C. Montgomery Burns who seem to get off on tormenting people. They are the worst kind of awesome bad guys.

Who is the best bad guy on TV? What television shows have the greatest TV villains?  This best television villains list has all the top TV villains in one place for you to vote on. If your favorite TV villain isn't on the list of the greatest TV villains, make sure to add them so other voters get to hate them as much as you do.

<![CDATA[The Greatest Actors Who Have Never Won an Oscar (for Acting)]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/greatest-actors-who-have-never-won-an-oscar
There are many actors who haven't won an Oscar. For 95 percent of the acting population, there is probably a good reason they haven't taken home one of film's most prestigious honors. Only two actors per year can win either the Best Actor or Best Supporting Actor Oscars, leaving eight other nominees with nothing. And all of the other actors in the biz out in the cold.

But does the Academy always get it right? There are plenty of actors who haven't won an Oscar despite the fact that they’ve turned in amazing performances. Whether it’s due to stellar competition, bad luck, or an out-and-out snub, some artists have never gotten the recognition they deserve.

Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt are all big draws at the box office who haven't received the same respect of the Academy that they have from audiences. While they've all been nominated for Oscars, they've never taken home the big prize.

There are a surprising number of big name actors who haven't won an Oscar. It's up to you to determine which of these men is the greatest.

These talented and beautiful men grace the big and small screen with brilliant performances in our favorite movies and TV shows and do it really, really well. Undoubtably, many of these top current actors, if they aren't already, will long be remembered among the best actors of all time.

For many of these best male actors, being part of Hollywood's elite is nothing new as they've been starring in our favorite titles for many years. The likes of George Clooney, Jack Nicholson, Morgan Freeman, Anthony Hopkins, Al Pacino, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Christopher Walken have been around for decades and lost little of that spark that made them favorites.

Moving into a slightly younger crowd, many of these best current actors are quickly becoming legendary as they continue to see success. Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling, and Johnny Depp are not just all hot, but among the best Hollywood has to offer today. But there's another generation of young actors looking for their turn in the spotlight too with up and comers like Aaron Paul, Michael Fassbender, Chris Hemsworth and Henry Cavill all on track to be the next big thing.

<![CDATA[The All-Time Greatest TV Pilots]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-greatest-pilot-episodes-of-all-time
The greatest TV pilots of all-time are single episodes of television that introduced us to what would soon be iconic characters and casts. A TV pilot is the first episode of a TV sitcom, drama, cartoon, or even reality show that introduces the cast and story to audiences and asks them (in as little as 22 minutes) to stick around and watch the show throughout its run. While many of these shows are now considered to be among the best TV shows of all time, many didn't know they were watching the beginnings of history when they tuned in to these top TV pilot episodes.

Some of the greatest TV pilots featured things you didn't think you'd ever hear on television (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia), the introduction of characters that would drive the top cult TV shows of all-time (Twin Peaks, The X-Files), and even moments in TV history that- even a decade before their release- would have been censored and disallowed from ever airing on television (The Following). These greatest TV pilots became some of the best TV shows currently on the air with some of the greatest TV characters ever.

What was the best TV pilot ever? That's what this list is here to help the TV viewing public decide. This list is a round-up of the best sitcom pilots, best sci-fi pilots, and the best drama pilots ever to make it to air on television. If you don't see your favorite TV pilot on the list, make sure to add it so it can compete for the #1 spot on the list of the all-time greatest TV pilots.

<![CDATA[Actors You Would Watch Read the Phone Book]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/actor-phonebook-list/carlybobarly
List of actors who you would watch do something as mundane as read the phone book. Some of these guys are leading men, considered some of the best actors of all time, and other are great character actors, known for their ability to become completely different people each time they are on camera. A few are just charming, or maybe "interesting," whatever that means. Others on this list are just quirky weirdos known for their off-screen antics as much as their actual acting. Maybe they would liven up the phonebook a bit? It's not always ads for fireworks and prostitutes.

Vote for those actors you think would be fun to watch doing just about anything. If not read the phonebook, maybe they could do the news, or the weather. Be sure to add any who are missing, and click 'rerank' below to make a list of your own.
