G4 REVEALS TOP 100 VIDEO GAMES OF ALL TIME
Week-Long Special Celebrated Video Games That Broke the Mold and Crowned Super Mario Bros. as the Greatest Game of All Time
Last week G4 and their panel of experts revealed the list of the Top 100 video games of all time with the help of the world's biggest stars, hottest athletes, gifted musicians and the most influential names in video games. There were some surprises, some fan favorites and some highly debated rankings, but through it all, the Italian plumber came out on top with the original Super Mario Bros. taking the number one slot.
The special, which aired Monday (June 11) through Friday (June 15), reached more than 3 million unique viewers that week. It more than doubled G4's time period average for all viewers and was up 110% and 146% among adults 18-49 and men 18-49, respectively. The premiere run ranked #9 in that time period amongst all ad-supported cable nets with Men 18-34.
The Top 100 Video Games of All Time section on G4tv.com (http://www.g4tv.com/top100) drove historic traffic for the website, over 5.5MM impressions during the countdown show's premiere week making it the most well trafficked non-E3 web event ever for G4.
