Undertale is about to win best game ever on gamefaqs, its causing quite a stir.

What are your thoughts?

I personally think that Icewind Dale is the "best" game ever, but I can see based on the brackets how this came ahead.

I wouldn't say that Undertale is the best game ever. I think it beats out Melee (the other contender) and is an overall amazing game, but I wouldn't call it the best.

It's winning because of how recently it came out. If this poll happened a few months later, once the Undertale craze died down a little, it wouldn't get nearly as many votes as it has now and the title would probably go to melee or ocarina of time because everyone's blinded by nostalgia and thinks that they're the best games ever made.

This poll ultimately doesn't matter at all because it's not going to change anyone's mind.

Nope, Undertale is not the best game of all time. In fact, I don't even think it should be in the running because I feel that a Best Game of All Time debate has two components, "Best Game" and "All Time." This means that not only is it the "Best Game" but that it maintains that level of prestige throughout a non insignificant amount of time. Being that Undertale just came out not that long ago, there is no telling how it will still hold up 1 year, 4 years, etc. from now. Time gives perspective that is crucial in this debate.

That said, this is not a debate. This is an internet poll open to pretty much anyone who wants to take the 30 seconds needed to cast a vote. It's open to not only any influence, good or bad, but it comes on a site where this sort of poll has had odd non-sensical results in the past such as when the L Block from Tetris or characters with no actual character like Link and Gordon Freeman have won "Best Character Ever" polls.

Put simply, I do think that GameFAQs is blatantly misusing the header "Best" in a poll that's nothing more than an open online popularity contest but if you're actually getting butthurt about the results you should really get outside once in a while.

(Yes, I am a regular at Game FAQs, and have been since '02. ... I feel as though I should apologize for that, haha. The place is a hole, most of the time, though I do have friends there.)

It was established, early in the poll, that Undertale was winning because people from Reddit were essentially vote-bombing it every time it came up. This has happened before in similar polls, but it was pretty flagrant this time.

Agree. I don't think you can call something that has been out for barely 3 months a 'best thing ever.' Now those other titles that were up against it are games that have actually been around forever, and are still talked about today. So even if technically they are not the best games ever, they are more fitting of the title. I think the poll just showed who's fandom has more time to spend voting online to be honest.
