It’s a great time to be a fan of that galaxy far, far away. From Star Wars Celebration to Disney+’s Obi-Wan Kenobi series there’s a lot going on, plus there’s the promise of a whole suite of new games that developers are busy working on behind the scenes.
As we impatiently wait for that bright future to arrive, we thought it would be a great time to sort through the games that have blazed the trail for the next generation. We need you to help us decide what the best Star Wars video game of all time is.
Do you think Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic deserves the top spot? Or does relative newcomer Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order take number one? Maybe even LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga? We’ve selected 64 of the best Star Wars games to “Face-Off” against each other two at a time. Will you choose Star Wars: Rogue Squadron over Star Wars: Republic Commando? Masters of Teras Kasi (we know there are some of you out there!) over Jedi Power Battles? The choice is yours…
(And don’t forget, you can pass on a Face-Off round if you don’t know a character by just hitting “skip” at the bottom of the page.)
What Is a Face-Off?
Like the name suggests, a Face-Off pits two things against one another and you decide which one is the superior of the two. In this case, you are voting to determine what the best Star Wars video game is. It’s possible to see certain games multiple times, so you can keep voting for your favorites to ensure they get ranked higher than the rest. IGN’s resident team of Star Wars experts pre-selected 64 games for you to choose from. These get randomly paired up and each time you pick a winner, it’s tracked.
How Is the Winner Determined?
When voting ends on June 2, we tally up the total number of “wins” and “losses” each Star Wars video game has and create a ranked list based on your choices that will go live on June 3. The game that won the most matchups will be crowned the “winner,” and in the event of a tied number of “wins,” the game with the least “losses” will take the top spot. If you continue to keep voting for your favorite game, they’ll have a better chance of ranking high on the list. You can vote as many times as you want until the Face-Off closes.
How Do I Know When I’ve Clicked Through Everything?
It’s difficult to know when you’ve seen every Star Wars video game included because they are matched randomly, and there are many possible match-ups. Playing until you vote for all your favorites or ensuring that certain games don’t get in the winner’s circle are different options you can take with a Face-Off. By deciding the winner throughout all these match-ups, you’re ensuring that your picks for the best Star Wars video game will have a fighting chance to reach the top of the list.
Which Star Wars Video Games Have You Included?
The list of Star Wars video games has been decided by IGN staff, and we’ve tried to include the most recognizable games from the storied history of the franchise. There have been a lot of games, and some have been more forgettable than others. To keep the list manageable, we’ve tried to keep it to the most popular choices and those that could be considered cult classics or subpar but beloved entries, and that left us with 64 games. These video games range from arcades to consoles to PC to mobile, so hopefully, your favorite is included! If not, be sure to let us know below!
