150 classic reviews

In this survey of the first 15 years of Edge reviews, from 1993's issue E1 right up to 2008's E195, you'll find some legendary 10s and the launch games from several new generations of hardware

As you look through the many highlights among the games we've chosen, you'll notice that not all are perhaps the best games we've ever covered. Indeed, look out for some missteps we've made along our 18 year journey, though, of course, everybody's opinion is different.

But whatever you feel about this list, it tells a story about how videogames – and Edge – have developed since we put our first issue out on September 2, 1993. One about creativity and inspiration, of conservatism and incremental development, of passion and nostalgia.
