    Hey, I don't have an IGN Insider subscription, so I was wondering if someone who does would be kind enough to tell me what game won their overall best of 2001 award. Thanks.

    Super Smash Brothers #1 vs GTA3!?!??!?!?!

    Yeeeah, ok. And the age of their readers? I thought Gamespot's list was much better.

    I wasn't disagreeing with GTA3 being a good game... he is atesting the game to an 'all-10-year-old' audience... and I was just pointing out that even us older folks can enjoy a little Melee.

    To answer your question Ike, I have played GTA3 at my friends house and it is awesome... but I just think Melee beats it

    I own all three consoles and own (almost) every game in that list including Super Smash Brothers, Halo, and GTA3.

    To me, it is GTA3 then everything else, then Halo, then everything else.

    These two games are simply on another level.

    I enjoy SSMelee but barley touch it since GTA3. This is one game that goes into the pathenon along with Mario 64 and Super Metroid.

    If I had my list it would go...

    1. GTA3 (by a long shot)

    2. Halo

    3. Gran Turismo 3

    4. MGS2

    5. Super Smash Brothers

    6. Return to Castle Wolf

    7. SSX Tricky

    8. Max Payne

    9. Madden 2002

    10. Tony Hawk 3

    Don't have an X-Box, and haven't played Max Payne, so my top games would be Final Fantasy X followed by Metal Gear Solid 2. After that, it would be a bunch of ties.
