I had to check what they judged the games by. It explains a few choices, but still doesn't excuse a bad list.

Some of them represent a wider shifts in gaming culture in the last decade, including esports, living games, representation, streaming, and the rise of indies. We wanted to present a list that represents how games have forged an ever more intimate relationship between the player and the experience. Here we go!
I get Pokemon Go! being on the list, but that high isn't justifiable. IGN also had P.T. on their list and I think Polygon just followed. Metal Gear Solid 5, but none others.

86. Kim Kardashian: Hollywood

I would understand someone making a bad list to stick out, a controversial list, a list of only popular games, a list of all artsy games, all best selling, all best reviewed.......but what is this list? At least half the games shouldn't even be on the list, let alone so high. Even if they were picking a game that "advanced the genre or series" they still picked the wrong one.

I hope the 8 year old who put this list together got paid well.

Here is my review;

If you've so far neglected to enter Kim Kardashian's stunning modern metropolis of Hollywood, by all means, get this game. The overall formula has been refined and retooled in this version to be more convenient, more realistic, and ultimately more mature, though it still gets stuck on brambles held over from games past. As far as living a virtual life goes, managing the social network, night life, travel habits and explosive forays of virtual dynamo Kim Kardashian is one that'll stick in your thoughts for years to come. The PC version comes with a few added features, such as online filters for finding matches, the ability to save clips and edit them together, added graphics and control options, as well as a larger player capacity in some of the multiplayer modes. Though you'll need a high-powered system to truly experience the PC version's enhanced visuals, Hollywood is still a wonder to behold.

Right from the article:

This was a decade of mobile games unapologetically tailored towards young women. Before Choices: Stories You Play, before The Arcana, before Mystic Messenger, before all these other successful mobile games for girls, there was Kim Kardashian: Hollywood.

While not a visual novel like the other specified titles, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood was perhaps the biggest indication that a mobile game for girls could be successful. Naysayers scoffed at the idea of a Kim Kardashian game. But within five days of its 2014 launch, it had already made $1.6 million.

It’s delicious, campy fun — the player moves to Los Angeles and is greeted by Kim K., who takes them under her wing as they rise in fame. It’s the drama of celebrities, the allure of playing dress-up, the glamour of Hollywood. More importantly, it paved the way for a whole genre of games that didn’t exist for easy consumption 10 years prior.
Quality is not being considered in this list. I'm surprised TLOU made the list at all.

God, this list was made by some non-binary clown who thinks they are 8 wasn't it?

WCW fans who can't let go of the past are killing pro-wrestling today. There I said it.

I can’t knock Minecraft being so high... but fuck that list. Who the fuck wrote it? He’s a brainless embarrassment .

Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace
