Radio 1 goes Big on Gaming Weekend

What's the greatest game of all time? Does Half-Life outgun Halo to the accolade? Is Metal Gear better than Mario 64? Would Fallout 3 finish above Final Fantasy VII? Well now, thanks to Radio 1 and 1Extra's 'Big Gaming Weekend', you'll get a chance to settle this argument, as listeners can vote for the best title of all time.

The list of 100 games, chosen by a group of industry experts - including our sister site CVG - has been given to Radio 1, and you'll be able to vote for your 3 favourite games from that list by visiting 1Xtra's homepage on May 22nd.

One of the station's DJs, Scott Mills, will launch the poll on May 22nd during his breakfast show between 6:30am and 10am, with the results being aired on MistaJam's Bank Holiday Monday Show, which you can tune into either on Radio 1 or 1Xtra between 7pm and 10pm.

And they'll even be airing a host of video game soundtracks between 4pm and 7pm on the Bank Holiday Show. So you can have a party in your ears, as you hum along to classics like Sonic's Green Hill Zone or Portal's ace ending tune 'Still Alive'.
