100.Burnout (Gamecube) (down 16 places)
One of the few racers on the list is in danger of dropping out next year as I play more games of genres that I generally prefer. Still great fun to play.
99.Doom (PC) (down 24)
The Xbox 360 is riddled with FPS' and perhaps that's why I didn't engage particularly well when I tried out Doom again the other day. A big dropper of 24 places as...
98.F.E.A.R. (Xbox 360) (New Entry)
...another FPS joins the list! FEAR had previous gen-standard graphics when it appeared on the Xbox 360, but I found the game to be a masterclass in manipulating some genuinely creepy moments. Nevertheless, I suspect it will be a fleeting stay for FEAR in my top 100 list.
97.Universal Soldier (Megadrive) (up 1)
Ballistic's cheeky Turrican re-write is great fun even if a bit of a con.
96.Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance (Gamecube) (New Entry)
Somehow omitted last year (although its sequel featured in 2011), this action RPG was hailed a Future Classic in Retro Gamer a few months back and this persuaded me to give it another go. Still hugely enjoyable.
95.Paperboy (Arcade) (down 28)
Another big dropper, mainly because I get too frustrated playing it these days!
94.Renegade (Spectrum) (down 21)
Perhaps surprising, as Renegade is still a playable and fine beat 'em up on the Speccy.
93.Goldeneye (N64) (down 14)
The one N64 game from last year dips a few places. It's starting to look its age.
92.Fallout 2 (PC) (down 21)
I have the mammoth Fallout 3 to play on the Xbox 360, and despite this version's sharp graphics and intriguing storyline, I expect it to drop out in favour of its sequel in a year's time.
Slightly disappointing for many thanks to its long genesis, yet I found Alan Wake to be an excellent 3rd person action game with a plot to match.
