|15 Favourite Games|
I know there has been a lot of game lists lately and they're probably starting rto get annoying, but as a hardcore multi-platform, old and new school gamer I just had to have my say.
This Is How The Wind Shifts
This list isn't in a particular order, really, but one of my all time favourite games is
Kingdom Hearts II. The emotion, graphics, story and characters were among some of
the best of the time and I spent so many hours playing it as a kid and still do
|2||Senses Fail |
Binary Domain: Heavily underrated by most critics and barely even noticed by
consumers, Binary Domain is basically a Japanese version of Gears Of War, but
amazing story, multiple endings, crazy bosses and great characters made it play and
feel better then the game it practically rips off in terms of gameplay, a minor
masterpiece and the only game I have passed more then 3 times (I've passed it 6
and finished it on all difficultly levels)
The Human Connection
Final Fantasy IX: So many people say that 10 or 7 are the greatest in this
legendary series, I disagree IX has the most accessible gameplay, simple, yet
engaging story, stunning graphics for the time and genuine humor, Final Fantasy IX
was the definitive swan song of the PS1 and a game that striked me since the day
I first played it.
Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory
Black: A game that is either loved or considered average, undoubtedly, Black didn't
do nothing new for the time, but the large amount of destruction, Distinctive sound
effects, decent plot and occasionally open level design makes it one of the
greatest shooters to have ever been graced on the PS2.
What It Is To Burn
Deus Ex Series: A series that decided not to die, with the first 2 installments being
pretty revolutionary at the time with RPG influenced gameplay upon regular First
person shooter elements, the games plot and cyberpunk themes blew me away
then the prequel- Deus Ex: Human Revolution which was released in 2011,
continued to blow me away with multiple dialog choices, emphasis on stealth and
well written dialog, I'm really excited for the apparent movie tie in and really hope it
doesn't end up crap like most other video game movies.
Dementium II- Originally released for the DS with surprisingly complex graphics and
gameplay Dementium II was a horror game in every sense of the word and scared
me as much as it mystified me, a horror focused shooter game done on dated
hardware that worked.
|7||Jimmy Eat World |
Quake III- While it may not be the most innovative shooter, Quake III was easily
the most balanced and polished shooter at the time besides Unreal Tournament.
The major and most surprising thing about the game, however is it's engine, which
was used for many other great critically acclaimed shooters, such as the first COD,
Soldier Of Fortune II, Star Wars Jedi Knight II and Return To Castle Wolfenstein.
One Day Son This Will All Be Yours
Battlezone II: A very old game that combined elements of FPS with RTS and
succeded, many believe the original Battlezone was better, however a consistent
fan base, patches that are still being released despite the game being over ten
years old now (The game was released in 1998) and amazing multiplayer, the game
can simple not be beaten in terms of originality.
|9||The Wonder Years |
The Greatest Generation
Just Cause II: While it may be stupid fun and the plot is ridiculous, there is no
doubt that this is open world gaming at it's most crazy and unrealistic, which makes
it for a fun play.
Keep Me On Your Side
Condemned II: A game that unleashed players in a unrestricted violent horror
universe and kept the scares coming from the very beginning, it's often an
immature and silly game with it's mechanics, but the brutal violence, intense hand
to hand combat and quite unexpected scares upon a great plot makes it one of the
greater combat focused horror games.
|11||Funeral For A Friend|
Half Life (PS2 Version) Or Black Mesa (Remake of the original Half Life) The PS2
version of Half-Life improved upon the graphics and areas of an already amazing
game, as well as giving us a 2 player co-op expansion and 2 player versus battles
making it easily the best version of the game besides Black Mesa, which is the
original game completely redone in the source engine with stunning results.
|12||Haste The Day|
Attack Of The Wolf King
Duke Nukem 3D: Yeah it's immature, it's dated, it's got a stupid premise and it didn't
do much new, but the original Duke was still a stellar game and had some quite
surprising innovations at the time of release, playing it now really depends on how
much you're just willing to hold the mouse button down and run, but it's a hell of a
lot of fun regardless.
Ratchet and Clank Series (From 1 to 3) Just simply an amazing game series, that
mixed 3rd person shooter and platforming together with each complimenting the
other, there has been no game prior that has the originally or flare of the original 3
Ratchet and Clank games and for that they have to be on this list.
Rayman 2: An amazing game regardless of platform, this game is a legendary
example of the platform genre and has amazing level design and colourful worlds, as
a kid it was easily one of my most played game and it still manages to be fun and
funny now despite the age.
|15||Alter Bridge |
There are a few that need to be honorably mentioned, such as Abes Oddysee, Area
51, Uncharted 3, Grim Fandango, Xcom: Enemy Unknown and the original Resistance, the last one I'm
mentioning is Max Payne 3, despite not being a sandbox title like most of
Rockstar's work, Max Payne 3 blew me away, with consistently engaging set
pieces, believable voice acting and a story that tied in with the previous games
complimentary, it became a game that I insisted I would pass as quickly as possible and did.
|Took me ages to compile |
|Sweet list, Black ruled and was pretty difficult at times. I'd add Silent Hill 2 - a lot of depth to that game in terms of emotions and character as well as it being creepy as hell. |
Also, Bioshock 1 (3 possibly aswell) deserves a spot I think
|I liked Bioshock 1 and Silent Hill 2 a lot and was actually thinking of mentioning it, it's actually hard to write a games list and get everything right, I actually didn't like Infinite too much however. I just found it to be overrated in terms of story, mainly because your actions don't affect much, making most of the choices seem a little pointless.|
|Though I don't hate infinite, I have to agree with you about it being overrated. It was definitely not the game changer that bioshock 1 was. |
|Far Cry 3, GTA: SA, Smackdown: Here Comes The Pain, Jak 2, Fusion Frenzy, Mortal Kombat. You didnt like Ratchet: Deadlocked? I thought that game was a perfect continuation after Up Your Arsenal.|
|Deadlocked was pretty good but it was more of a shooter then a platformer, otherwise Far Cry 3 was good, but I prefer Spec Ops in terms of making the player feel guilty for the killings you enact.|
|always wanted to play Black but never got to. it was developed by the same people who did the Burnout games which are some of my favorite games.|
the first couple ratchet and clank games that came out for ps3 were pretty good too. the new one that's coming out looks very promising.
|XCOM and Kingdom Hearts|
|I really loved Black, I just wish there'd be some form of HD remake rather then the crappy 'spiritual successor' that was the terrible Bodycount |
|A list with Rayman, finally. |
final fantasy vi
super mario world
legend of zelda: a link to the past
tales of symphonia
|Rayman 2 is one of the most amazing games ever, even if the rest of the ones in the series are dull as hell|
|3 is amazing as well. And Origins + Legends take the cake imo|
|" Grim Fandango,"|
|I liked 3, just wasn't as good as the 2nd that's for damn sure, also haven't gotten around to playing the 2d ones yet :/ |
|It seems like no one here even knows about Binary Domain|
|I know about it, a friend likes it|
never played it tho i didn't care for how it looked
|Forgot to add the Tekken series to this... Strange considering I have every Tekken game besides the first 2|
|Jet set radio mayne|
|binary domain was mediocre dude if you thought that was good you need to play vanquish (the greatest third person shooter ever made)|
|I haven't played a single game on this list. |
|few good ones, few dull ones. props for deus ex|
|Kingdom Hearts I and II|
Metal Gear Solid I, II, III, IV
The Last of Us
Uncharted I and II
Jak II and III
Dino Crisis I
|I didn't like Vanquish much.. Kinda short and not very interesting in it's story|
