Your all-time favourite video games

Post by DroothR on Sat Oct 25, 2008 4:37 am

Inspired by Shocka's post in the Last Movie You Watched thread, I've created this thread for us all to share our favourite video games.

Key word favourite (as opposed to "best").

Not video games that you think are great objectively, but the ones that you personally get the most enjoyment from, and keep going back to (even if they're widely regarded as not so great by the general public).

Idea So, what are my top ten (in alphabetical order)?

  • Donkey Kong Country series (fav. #2: Diddy's Kong Quest)
  • The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction
  • Jet Force Gemini
  • The Legend of Zelda series (fav. The Wind Waker)
  • Resident Evil 4 (Wii Edition)
  • StarCraft (+ Brood War)
  • Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
  • Super Smash Bros. Brawl
  • Total Annihilation
  • WWF No Mercy

Question What are yours?

In no particular order:

Ratchet and Clank series (though it may be a bit played out now)
Dungeon Keeper 2 (one of my all time faves, such a great game)
Monkey Island (especially the first 2)
Unreal Tournament (I think 2k4 was the pinnacle, lack of people to play with has made the latest one a bit dull)
Shadow of the Colossus (one of the best games ever!)

I've been trying to avoid newer games in my list. There's some awesome games that have come out recently. COD4, GTA4, Gears of War... and whilst they were all awesome i'm not sure I'll put them in that "best of all time" list yet...

In no real order...

1. Fury of the Furries - Really loved the music, and the damn hard puzzleplatforming.
2. Super Castlevania IV - Music, damn hard puzzleplatforming.
3. Shadow of the Beast - Damn... see above. Bit of a theme going on here. Smile
4. Alien vs Predator - The first game was awesome... loved running around popping lights and tracking people down in lans by their motion sensors going off. Smile
5. Halo (I'll go with 3 for the sake of the argument) - Really loved the music, kinda got into the story... and multiplayer was tasty.
6. Golden Axe - Who doesn't like going nuts with a little green dwarf?
7. Super smash brothers - I just loved the idea.
8. Pokemon... uhm, any of the gameboy ones - Just awesome gameplay... hard to convince other people though. Smile
9. Marvel vs. Capcom - I just loved busting out megaman and alternate coloured War Machine, going for a blue team theme.
10. Worms - The first worms game was awesome... used to love shooting that last damned pixel from under someone.

I've probably got lots more I really love, but remembering them all now is a bit tricky. And I know I like this lot at least. Smile

<edit> Oh, and at least an honourable mention to Populous and Syndicate! If someone could stop Peter Molneux from breaking my fond childhood memories, that'd be great. Smile </edit>

ik+ was international karate plus, it brought a third player into the game.
Great fun and still holds up well today.
