  • "What games are you playing" is a fun topic (), but I wanted to share games that I appreciate. Maybe other people feel the same way (about either sharing, or about my favorite games).

    If you had to make a list of 5 or so favorite games, what would it be?

    (Gabe Newell's fav games: Super Mario 64, Doom and a punch card game called Trek)

    Mine are:

    • Mirror's Edge
    • Killzone 2(+3)
    • GTA IV
    • Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days

    (i'm sticking to the current generation of console games)

  • 5. Resident Evil

    The first game to ever scare me. (Yes, I know it's cheesy as hell but back in the day this game was groundbreaking.)

    4. Super Mario Bros.

    I played the hell out of this back in the day, and hell I still pull it out and play it every once in a while. And it's success pretty much launched the platform game genre, which overall is my favorite genre.

    3. Metroid

    So awesome.

    2. The Legend of Zelda

    It was a tossup between this, A Link to the Past, or Ocarina of Time. Finally decided on this because without it there wouldn't be any others.

    And my number one favorite game:

    1. GTA San Andreas

    This is the game that I keep going back to more than any other. I've beaten it several times, and I almost never get tired of playing it. And it has THE BEST soundtrack of any game, ever (well, non-game music soundtrack anyway).

    And yes I realize that there are three NES titles on that list. So what, I'm a nostalgic fanboy

  • Ahm, 5 wouldn't do a justice to thise games. they all number one

    Zelda/Metroid/Megaman/Another World/Ico/Shadow of the colossuss/Doom/Quake/Final Fantasy IV-IX/Starcraft/Diablo/Fallout 1-2/Seiken Dentetsu 3/and i like mario

  • Off the top of my head some of my favorites are:

    Duke Nukem 64

    God I played this game to death. I remember spending countless hours with my friends just playing in the death match. Had some awesome cheat codes aswell to keep things entertaining. Was close between this and Goldeneye 007 for N64.

    Legend of Zelda : OOT

    What can I say about this game that hasn't already been said. Started when I was just a little kid watching my mom and dad play zelda on nes. Didn't really get into it until OOT was released on N64.

    Day of the Tentacle

    Awesome game with a great story and cast of characters that really got me hooked on point and click games. (Could be said about any of the Lucas Arts point and click games really)

    Super Mario 64

    Just another amazing Mario game.

    Im leaving out tons but you get the idea.

  • 1.Dune 2 - I've spent countless hours playing it, also this game made me to like red color, Harkonnens were my favourites.

    2.Operation Flashpoint - haven't tried the sequel yet, still waiting for better comp.

    3.Dungeon Master 2 - can't forget killing monsters and changing their meat for money.

    4.GTA - all - classic, from 1 till last part, constant superb quality.

    5.Cool Boarders - Tony Hawk on snow, pity there is no similar game to this one nowdays.

    Not sure about their placing, but all five would be near the top everytime. Dune2 probably always first.

  • Wait, how the hell can people like Kane and Lynch 2???

    My five favorite:

    Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening / Majora's Mask / Wind Waker (can't really pick between the three a definite favorite; they're all so perfect)

    These for me are pretty much the definitively fun Zelda adventures. LA has the best classic Zelda experience, Majora's Mask has the best implementation of story, dungeons, and sidequests, and WW has the purest and most-fun sense of exploration and high-adventure in the series.

    Super Metroid / Metroid Prime

    The one game I think is essentially, and aesthetically perfect in every way. Prime is close, and pretty much essentially perfect as well, but both games are timeless and never get old.

    Chrono Trigger

    Another game that does not stop being fun, ever. Squaresoft perfected the turn-based RPG with Chrono Trigger, and made a fun, unique, and engaging world to play around in. Mitsuda's score also borders on perfection.

    Yoshi's Island

    This is probably Miyamoto's best game and masterpiece; everything about it is tight, fun, inventive, colorful, and bursting with charm. The game hardly ever goes below "incredibly fun", and everything from the bosses, the levels, and psychedelic Get Fuzzies are a treat.

    Super Mario World

    The other great in the list of greats. There is, as well, nothing wrong with this game, and is so chock-full of secrets and fun that it has kept me coming back to it time and time again.

    Honorable mentions:

    Advanced Wars 2

    Mega Man 2

    Mega Man X

    Metroid Prime 2 Echoes

    Final Fantasy V Advanced

    Super Smash Bros. Melee

    Kirby SuperStar

    Street Fighter Alpha 2

    Darius Gaiden

    Super Mario All-Stars

    Secret of Mana

    Surprisingly, the majority of games i've listed come from the 16-bit era.

    Final Fantasy 7 (PSX)

    <img src="http://img130.imageshack.us/img130/4816/85136483.jpg">

    Maybe a bit too much of text but what a stunning game

    Some others great titles :

    Broken Sword : Shadow of the templars

    Zak Mc Kraken & the aliens mindbinders

    Double Dragon 2

    Freelancer

    The House of the dead 2

    Suikoden

    Tenchu

  • Wait, how the hell can people like Kane and Lynch 2???

    Sorry.

    But the feel of atmosphere (I like north east asia) is so real. Feels almost like I'm walking in Shanghai.

    I also enjoy the interaction/chemistry between Kane & Lynch.

  • There are so many good games, but if I have to limit myself to only 5, I certainly will name those who really touched me like no other game. That makes it easier to name 5, but I won't set them in any order.

    GTA San Andreas

    This masterpiece got me as soon as I had to jump on a bicycle to escape while under horrible fire. But the tears of joy came when I entered a car, turned on the radio, and listened to Axel's rock show while driving all the way around the map. Twenty minutes at highest car speed (yeah, 20 minutes realtime), that's when I realized not only how huge this game is, but also with how much love to detail it was developed.

    Final Fantasy VII

    I never had much interest in asia rpg, until this one entered the european market. Wow, what a game, even touching emotions!

    TES IV: Oblivion

    The total freedom of what you do and how is unbeaten.

    The secret of Monkey Island

    Ron Gilbert <3 Need I say more? Ok then, I started the game and began to laugh - and didn't stop laughing until the end. This game teaches you what fun is ... even the copy protection was part of the whole concept!

    A nameless game on the good old C64

    I really don't know anymore what game it was, but it made me think about what brought this to life, how math can make something like that fun gaming experience work. And so I started to teach myself BASIC (yeah, no school courses these days) by typing some english words and evaluating the reactions of the C64-BASIC-Interpreter. Without that game I wouldn't sit here now, 25 years later, still enthusiastic and interested not only in games, but also in the creation of them.

    Shadow Of The Colossus

    Second Sight (under-rated and underplayed)

    Maximo

    Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty

    There's probably loads more I've forgot about over the years.

  • It's good to see folks with good taste here . I'm tempted to change my list...

    But instead I'll just say that Flashback, Symphony of the Night, and Fallout 1 & 2, Shadow of the Colossus, and ICO were also quite close to the top five.

    Second Sight (under-rated and underplayed)

    That was the one with the guy with telekinesis in the mental hospital, yes? That game kicked ass . I got it in the bargain bin at Game Crazy for like six bucks. That one and ObsCure (a co-op survival horror game) were probably the best budget titles I've ever played.

  • Skool Daze -

    omg!!! school daze!!!!!

    I used to play that on c64!!!

    so awesome

    you're the memory master

    There is a PC remake called Klass Of 99 IRC. I think every kid didn't like going to school but loved Skool Daze .

  • I distinctly remember not knowing what the hell I was supposed to do
