The best games I can remember playing. Albums vaguely related.

Donkey Kong 64. I'm sad that I can't remember much about this game,
other than bits and pieces. What do I remember? An expansive story mode,
Diddy Kong with a guitar, a multiplayer third person shooter that my friends
and I loved, and going apeshit (get it?) over golden bananas.

Facts and Fictions
Dragon Ball Z: Budokai/Budokai Tenkaichi series. Dragon Ball Z is the greatest anime series of
all time. I might get flack from the anime elitists who've seen tons of
obscure and underground anime, but was DBZ obscure and underground?
No. Why? Because it kicked too much ass. The Budokai games are my
favorite fighting games, because it's DBZ. They allow you to play through
the awesome story lines of DBZ, or simply let you use your favorite
character to kick the shit out of anyone from Krillin to Kid Buu.
X-Men Legends series. Two games isn't really a series, but both X-Men
Legends games were so awesome it doesn't matter. Playing as four of your
favorite X-Men against the forces of the Shadow King (first game) or
Apocalypse (second game), you can choose stat boosts and new gear. How
good are these games? Think of it like Mass Effect, with X-Men. That good.
With Oden On Our Side
Age of Mythology and Rise of Nations. I really need to get more RTS games. Age of Mythology was
incredibly well done, and had an encyclopedia of mythological figures packed into one
game. Fighting against Zeus and Isis as Loki? Sign me up. Rise of Nations is
a real-world RTS, and I still play it, because it's that damn fun. Sort of an
RTS Civilization 4, you lead a nation from the Ancient Age to the Information
Age and fight other nations along the way. The history buff's version of
AoM. Well, America building the Eiffel Tower and the Pyramids isn't exactly
history, but damn is it awesome.
Star Wars: Battlefront II. So much of this was played with friends, which is
why I loved it. I'm a massive fan of Star Wars, see username, and this
game was awesome on so many levels...but especially because it wasn't
the story of the good guys, it was the story of the Empire. So awesome.
Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. The follow up to the classic Paper
Mario, I've had so much fun playing this game its hard to write about it. The
plot was the best I've ever seen in a video game. The visuals were
outstanding. The battle style was fun and inventive. I can't say a bad thing
about this game...why, why did Super Paper Mario have to suck so
The Guitar Hero series. I started with 3, and had an unhealthy obsession
with it. I've conquered Through the Fire and Flames and The Devil Went
Down to Georgia on expert. I got 2 later, and it was a lot harder because
the accuracy required for each note was much greater. But Jordan was
eventually beaten. After 3, rhythm games sucked. There's a reason they
got discontinued entirely.
Art of Life
Super Mario Bros Deluxe. The Gameboy port of the classic NES game, I
never had a NES or SNES so this was my first exposure to Mario. Mario is
probably the most influential game series ever, IIRC it's sold the most units
as a whole. There's been very few bad Mario games, because Mario games
are so lovable and well made. Paper Mario was more enjoyable, but SMBD
was...too important to my young life. I had over 120 lives at one point.
Master of Puppets
The Call of Duty series. The best FPS games ever, Call of Duty Modern
Warfare was beyond revolutionary. There's a reason the newest CoD
installation is always the most talked about shooter other than Halo, and
CoD is actually good.

The Pokemon series. Even taking into account that gens 4 & 5 heralded the
death of Pokemon, I can say that if you didn't play these games growing up
you had a deprived childhood. Red, Blue, and Yellow are the first games I
remember playing, and even the show was good back in the day. The most
engrossing video game series of all time, Silver is still my favorite game
ever. Pokemon is the essence of childhood.
|Battlefield>Call of Duty|
|No Zelda, no mariokart, no super smash bros? GTFO|
|"Even taking into account that gens 4 & 5 heralded the death of Pokemon"|
Wait...what? All the talk of Pokemon Black and White on this site alone = the death of Pokemon?
|I hate you, you associated 1 with Pokémon....|
|"but was DBZ obscure and underground? No. Why? Because it kicked too much ass."|
i lol'd. also i totally forgot about age of mythology. i used to love that game
|no zelda or mass effect = fail|
|I guess I'm in those tiny minorities that didn't like the Zelda games or the Halo games...and I think Pokemon just stopped being fun with DPP.|
|1, 3, 5, and 8 rule hard.
I really started to hate Pokemon with RSE, but I am really loving White right now, so as far as I'm concerned, it's made a full recovery.|
|Fallout 3 >>>> All else.|
|LOL...yeah, 'Colors', and lots of 'em: Red, Blue, Green, Yellow, Gold, Silver, Emerald, Ruby, Sapphire, Black, White|
|Banjo Kazooie is way better than DK64|
|Great list but no Ocarina of Time or Super Mario 64?|
|dk 64 was a super clunkly/clumsy game, really. it had its moments, but the snes dk games were infinitely better.|
|" but was DBZ obscure and underground? No. Why? Because it kicked too much ass."|
This, plus pokemon and Colors being number 1 make me love you in the gayest way possible.
Geck's the Gecko
|are you talking about Budokai? or Budokai + Tenkaichi? personnaly, I think that Tenkaichi 3 is the best DBZ game ever made|
|"are you talking about Budokai? or Budokai + Tenkaichi?"
Good point. I've only played the first Tenkaichi and I loved it.
|Missing Street Fighter EX + α. |
|"Dragon Ball Z is the greatest anime series of all time. "|
Have you never seen Cowboy Bebop? I mean it ran on Adult Swim forever.
|Kingdom Hearts II|
Mario Kart Double Dash (followed closely by Wii)
and much more...
|2 is the worst series ever, period.|
|"but the snes dk games were infinitely better." you fucking got that right|
|Timesplitters 2 was the shit before 360 and all that stuff came out. |
|Timesplitters was indeed the shit|
|your lack of zelda frightens me|
|also, needs moar original paper mario. in my top 5 games ever|
|Both like and hate this list.|
"I'm actually a big fan of RTS games, but these two are the only two I've played."
|SNES is best system ever man, even now it's fun. now stop playing fucking cod, and go get a real game!|
|N64 is the best|
|Glad to see that somebody agrees|
|'"I'm actually a big fan of RTS games, but these two are the only two I've played."|
|Favorite game right now is the Dead Space series.|
|Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time|
Mass Effect Series
|DK64 sucked. Was like the worst of the franchise.|
Scoot's picks are pretty nice. FF7's always my fave.
|oh come on man gens 4 and 5 are great. |
listening to eminem reminds me so heavily of Ratchet and Clank. I used to bump that shit in fourth grade WHILE GAMIN
|I'm a story-whore. I couldn't care less about graphics.|
|I third the FF7 notion.|
|never really dug the Budokai games. lol all i remember from DK 64 is a whole lot of collecting.|
|Timesplitters was definitely the shit back in the day, still is actually. It's all about that NBA 2K11 though.|
|agree with 1 except the new gen rules. |
needs mass effect, fallout, zelda etc
