Video Game Canon: Version 2.0 (2018)
Based on Warp Zoned’s Scientifically Proven Best Video Games of All Time, the Video Game Canon is a statistical meta-analysis of 48 lists that were published between 1995 and 2017. To qualify for inclusion, each list had to include at least 50 titles, some form of editorial oversight (lists made up solely of reader polls or fan voting were excluded), and no restrictions on release dates or platforms.
Average Ranking + (100 – Appearance Frequency) = Scientifically Proven Score
