Halo is Guinness World Records’ best videogame series, Call of Duty is second

Written by: / / No Comments

According to a reader-voted list appearing in the latest iteration of Guinness World Records’ Gamer’s Edition book, Bungie’s Halo franchise is the best videogame series of all time.

Guinness World Records gaming editor Gaz Deaves said that instead of asking “developers, industry insiders and journalists to rank their favorite titles,” the team at Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition took a different approach and decided to approach “a different kind of expert: the players themselves!”

“We are confident that this ‘top 50’ more accurately reflects the tastes of the average gamer and not just the critics,” said Deaves.

There’s no doubt of that, as the 13 000 online voters pushed not only one fan favourite online shooter straight to the top of the list, but another, the Call of Duty franchise, found its way into second place on the list.
