There have been so many X-Men video games that figuring out the all-time best X-Men games is no simple task. With this list, however, mutants and Marvel fans alike can finally answer the question of just which games about X-Men are the greatest. There's a plethora of licensed games featuring Professor X's mutants, and with your votes, this list of X-Men games will rank them all from best to worst.

There are so, so many characters in the X-verse, but these games aren't even limited to that crowded field. The crossover Spider-Man and the X-Men in Arcade's Revenge, for example, ties together two popular series in one. Wolverine and company team up with other superheroes in Marvel: Ultimate Alliance and they battle video game brawlers in the Marvel vs. Capcom series. The X-Men are all about tolerance, so of course there are also cooperative games like X-Men: Legends.

Which do you prefer, a side-scroller, a fighting game, or a co-op adventure? Vote up the games that are as strong as adamantium, downvote the games that are slipperier than Senator Kelly, and if you're a gaming mutant, rerank to create your own version of this X-Men games list!
