Readers of the Official PlayStation Magazine have voted Naughty Dog’s stellar adventure sequel Uncharted 2: Among Thieves as the greatest PlayStation title ever released.
The poll comes in light of the publication's 50th issue and the15th anniversary of the original PlayStation in the UK, with Nathan Drake’s treasure hunting escapades beating out the likes of Metal Gear Solid, Shadow of the Colossus and Final Fantasy VII to the top spot.
Check out the full top ten below.
01. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
02. Metal Gear Solid
03. Final Fantasy VII
04. Grand Theft Auto Vice City
05. Metal Gear Solid 4
06. Metal Gear Solid 3
07. Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
08. Shadow Of The Colossus
09. Red Dead Redemption
10. Resident Evil IV
How do you feel about the results of the poll? We could name a few choice games that we felt deserved a place in the top ten which ultimately failed to make the cut, but that’s not for us to debate – we’ll leave that to you folks in the comments section below.

What a strange list. Final Fantasy? Do many people know about it/play it? Certainly more people play Modern Warfare which is another strange title here since it's a very successful but a multiplatform title.

Is this a poll completed by people that are around ten years old, there are so many other games out there that should be on there from PSone and PS2. This is basically a PS3/PSN list and by someone that has it hard for MGS.

I don't have too much wrong with this list. It does favor some of the more recent titles, which is to be expected. I don't think in 5 years CoD will be on it, but who knows. The most interesting thing to me is that there are 3 MGS titles in the top ten, top six even. Also that Rockstar got two games in the top 10.
I wish GTA: San Andreas coulda been there instead of Vice City, it's just a richer more varied game in my opinion. Also you get to hear CJ say: Them duckets is mine now!

COD4 should not be in the top ten!
It has good online, but not "best game ever" good. Neither should Red dead.
And I personally think MGS3 is better than MGS4.
both fantastic games though.

while i crown it most overrated game of all time!

COD 4 and RDR shouldn't be up there. I would rather see a Crash Bandicoot or Spyro game or even Twisted Metal up there instead.
- 5:59pm EDT - October 1st, 2010
COD4? Are you serious? Wow I feel like punching my screen now.
- 5:59pm EDT - October 1st, 2010
wow, crappy list.
Seems like it was put together by kids who are to young to remember/know some of the more revolutionary games of the psx/ps2 era.

Triple Metal Gear in a top ten list that makes me happy. Tho things like CoD4,RDR,RE IV should not be on this list. They are not playstation titles they are multiplatform. And RE 4 was by far the worst resident evil game of the series. Id rather play Resident Evil Gaiden than 4(And for the most of you who wont know Gaiden was the GBC Resident Evil game)

What total nonsense. U2 is a good game but its no where near being as good as half the games on that list. Vice City should win hands down. It pushed gaming way further forward than any PS3 game.
Uncharted 2 has utterly claimed the title of the most over rated game in history in my opinion.
- 7:40pm EDT - October 1st, 2010
obviously this is mostly influenced by this generation to have modern warfare and red dead on the list.
- 7:56pm EDT - October 1st, 2010
Lul, I hated Uncharted, hated MGS(every single one of its iterations). FFVII would be number 1 for me, GTA: Vice City is the best of the franchise. COD:4, are you F'ing kidding me? This list is worthless.

no cod game deserves to be in a top 10 imo, but id add tomb raider 1, spyro 1, and a few other gems. uncharted 2 doesnt deserve number 1, even though its best game this gen, the no1 spot should be for a game that really revoultionised gaming like tr and mario 64 did.

WTF has everyone been smoking your forgetting the main game that made ps2 as successful as it was and one the the best games ever to grace a console GOD OF WAR 1,2 and 3 but 3 had the OMG factor it will always be one of the greatest sony exclusives of all time ill give it a back sit to ubcharted 2 only beacause it has multiplayer
- 9:40pm EDT - October 1st, 2010
what kind of lie is this uncharted 2 doesn't even make my top 20 list so saying its the best ps game ever is a uber epic fail

I have to agree with most of the comments. This list is just terrible for two reasons, MW and RDR. I won't deny that MW revolutionized FPS and was a great game, but not a top 10 PlayStation game. RDR used outdated graphics, minimal story imagination, and shoddy gameplay featuring the same boring toilet humor as GTA IV.Uncharted 2, everyone must admit, is the pinnacle of gaming for this generation, whether you enjoyed the title or not. I personally didn't like the game, its not my style. But the amount of work put into that game to make it perfection for what it was, it deserves every award it gets. Its not overrated by any means. If developers really commit to their project like Naughty Dog did, the overall quality of games will jump.To be honest, R* hasn't been passionate about its games since SA and Bully(don't hate). They have adopted Activision's antics of sell, sell, sell, even if its garbage. GTA III, VC, and SA were all games of perfection for their time, my personal favorite being SA. I just hope consumers wise up and stop throwing money at their trash cans.My list, in no particular order:Uncharted 2San Andreas - Best SandboxMetal Gear SolidMetal Gear Solid 4God of War - Best Action-AdventureFinal Fantasy VII - Best RPGKillzone 2 - Best FPSGran Turismo 3: A-Spec - Best RacerMadden 2003 - Best Madden, Best Sports Game PeriodTwisted Metal: Black - Best WTF
