    Hello, everyone. Thanks for reading the final Top 100 NES Games of All Time topic. I've decided to close voting after about 8 years of open voting through five topics. The original topic began in August 2001 and the fifth and final one hit 500 posts in September 2009.

    I'll list here the final top 100, all other games that were voted for, and some other interesting points as well. The purpose here is reference and discussion - by all means begin any back-and-forth here, and reference this topic to others who might be asking about good NES games to try.
