Earlier this month, the team behind EDGE magazine announced that they would be releasing a special edition of their usual monthly publication; The EDGE Special Edition: The 100 Greatest Videogames. EDGE is one of those magazines that we’re incredibly fond of here at Sumo, with some of our team following it from the very beginning all those years ago.
So, now imagine how we felt when we learnt that not one, but TWO Sumo developed titles made it onto their list! That’s right; we were a tad excited!
Coming in at #71, OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast is the first of our titles to make it on the list. Released in Europe on March 31st, 2006, Coast 2 Coast holds a special place in the hearts of many here at Sumo HQ. Whenever we meet with fans, this is a title that they bring up again and again, evidently with good reason!
Next, we head into Top 50 territory;
At #47, is none other than our very own LittleBigPlanet 3! A title that we’re incredibly proud of. The fact LittleBigPlanet 3 challenged numerous AAA titles for a top 50 position, including games that we ourselves deeply respect, truly shows how remarkable this is for us. Needless to say, we’re all feeling incredibly humbled and proud right now.
Of course, if you want to check out EDGE’s top 100 list yourself, EDGE Special Edition: The 100 Greatest Videogames is available right now at all good news outlets. Alternatively you can order your copy from MyFavouriteMagazines.co.uk
Following four sessions’ worth of debate that got dangerously out of hand, the consumption of way too much coffee, and with many thousands of words committed to print, our rundown of the world’s finest games is now available.
Consisting of 212 pages and wrapped with a foil-embossed cover, The 100 Greatest Videogames counts down the titles that deserve to be in your collection, from old favourites such as Tetris to modern-day masterpieces such as Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.
