*Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Gameboy Color)
*Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy
*Magic School Bus Explores The Ocean
*Chrono Trigger DS
*Pokemon Emerald

The GBC Harry Potters were AMAZING games. It was a JRPG - set in England! A non-steampunk England! With Harry Potter! And you could add Lockhart to your party, and while he knew every spell, none of them worked, except for his "Sign Autograph" attack!

Not necessarily in order-

Shining Force- Great strategy game that I grew up playing this game, had to of beaten it at least 8 times

Megaman X- Same reason but with platforming and secret Hadouken

Halo: Combat Evolved- Favorite single player in an FPS. Also, only console game I ever went out of my way to LAN.

Team Fortress 2: I play console so I got kinda boned here but ah well, still rocks without party hats and sammiches.

Resident Evil 1&4: 1 for being the best survival horror game I've ever played, despite giving me nightmares when I was a little kid, and 4 for being an awesome action game.


Felt like I should of included a bunch of other like FF Tactics and HL2 but ah well.



EDIT: Somehow forgot about my favorite game of all time: Castlevania SoTN

Left 4 Dead (I have a thing for co-op)
Diablo 2
Team Fortress 2 (preferably before the unlockable weapons, but whatever)
Sonic 2 (the classic on Genesis, of course)
Starcraft

Top 5 Games

Postby RobertMc123 » 07 Apr 2009, 12:23

I find it really hard to create a Top 5 Games of all time list, recently in my blog I talked about my top 5 Gaming Moments of all time, so here is the short version of this:

5) Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (So Long Baby Moment- self referrential and explained in the blog post)
4) Metal Gear Solid - Brother Vs Brother (The bare knuckle fight atop the burning wreck of Metal Gear Rex.)
3) Sid Meier's Pirates! - Open World Gaming (And I mean Pirates! on the Commodore 64, this was the first game to really show me open world gaming)
2) The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past - Finishing The Game (Zelda on the Snes was the most memorable experience I have of completing a game besides MGS.)
1) Kingdom Hearts - A perfect Blend of Disney and Final Fantasy (I am a huge Disney nut, my honeymoon was Disneyworld in Florida and Kindom Hearts will always be memorable to me and maybe one day I will complete it.....)

Its hard to choose. There's always a bunch that get chosen just because they are classics or just through nostalgia. My 5 are based on my personal play time with them and how much I loved playing them. Honestly, my list would be to 10 but my 5 are:

In no particular order-

>Super Mario World
>Jagged Alliance 2
>Freelancer
>Fallout 3 - Pretty much the entire series apart from POS, but 3 was just superb.
>Pirates!(2004)

But there are a bunch more deserving honorable mentions - Diablo 2+LOD, Mercenaries(both), Hitman(2-4), Age of Empires(All), Saint's Row(both), The Neverhood, Commandos 2... the list could go on for a while.

Super Metroid is ok but I just had more fun with Fusion because of the variety of different bosses. Over all though I prefer Prime over any other.

I had it on my list, please give others here the chance to see the light!!! Please people see the LIGHT!!!

Super Metroid. If women ever complain there are no real female game heroes, and if there are they only wear tiny cloth outfits. Make them play a Metroid game, and then have them apologise for the slander they have been spreading.

This is pretty difficult (I had to divide into categories), off the top of my head:

PC (single-player):
Outcast
Deus Ex
Wing Commander 3
Mechwarrior 3
Mafia

PC (multi-player):
Team Fortress 2
System Shock 2 (co-op)
Falcon 4.0: Allied Force
Rainbow Six series (Raven Shield if I had to pick one)
Quake 2 (co-op/DM)

Console (current/last generation):
LittleBigPlanet
Fallout 3
Beyond Good & Evil (Own the PC version too, looks better on PC :P)
Conker's Bad Fur Day (Live & Reloaded version)
Halo series

Console (older):
Super Mario Bros 3
Metal Slug series
Final Fantasy VII (played it on PC too :))
Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Excitebike 64 (A weird pick, but "Ricky Stern gets a soil sample!" never seems to get old. It can be pretty hilarious multi-player.)

I refuse to number these because I would find it VERY difficult to choose. Thus, I go in alphabetical order.

Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura
Dawn of War II
Fallout 3
The Orange Box. (FINE Half-life two. Shut up.)
Painkiller

Note that none of these are console games.
