I am not gonna tell people how to live their lives but a) there’s too many and b) rankings are for sports and the military and not a fuckin’ incredibly broad range of cultural outputs with different objectives like games or movies or albums. Can you have a favourite? Sure. Can you have a second favourite? I guess? Can you numerically order 10 games like this meaningfully? I mean maybe but also I don’t believe you, and I certainly don’t believe that it’s a format that should be as prevalent and standard as it is.
I will fight anyone who disagrees, shortly after I post this thread and never check it again because I am very scared of defending any opinion I air publicly.
edit: to clarify i got no problem with like. yearly roundups and discussion and such. i just hate putting in numbers and qualifying things as “the best” when it feels at best useless and at worst like introducing an uncomfortable and unnecessary competitive aspect to things which are already heavily designed to increase their metacritic score or whatever
