Breaking down the 100 best games: What do our choices say about us?

Fascinating facts and surprising statistics from last week's controversial countdown

100 games. 12 pages. 16,465 words. 375 comments (and counting). 30 years of history. 4 weeks of nominating, voting, arguing, ranking, then arguing some more. GamesRadar editors poured so much time, effort and tears into the making of last week’s100 Best Games of All-Timecountdown that we sort of assumed we’d be sick of the thing and never want to talk or think about it again.

Curiosity proved us wrong. Once we’d picked and posted our 100, we began to wonder... what did those choices reveal about us? What are GamesRadar’s favorite genres and platforms? Our favorite publishers and developers? Our favorite year and country, even? And what about the readers... what did your reactions and comments to the 100 say about you?

Here are some of the surprising answers we discovered.
