Can you guess the number one?

Last night on Japanese television there was a three-hour special to rank the 100 most popular video games of all time, voted by over 50,000 people in Japan.

Considering that this poll has such a huge sample size, TV Asahi’s results are probably a pretty accurate barometer of the current tastes of gamers in the country.

A panel of celebrities commented on the games as they were announced one by one. Famous panelists included CX play center‘s Shinya Arino, who said his number one choice was Super mario bros 3, artist Eiji Wentz, who said his favorite was Final fantasy vii, and actor and Famitsu columnist Hikaru Ijuin, who listed his number one choice as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
