Top 10 favourite games of all time

Postby JMan » Wed Feb 04, 2015 3:16 am

I've searched all through the forum and haven't found this topic yet, which is surprising because its pretty popular among You Tube and other forums to do.

So if you could choose 10 of your all time favourite games, what would they be?

You can bend the rules a little if you like (e.g. Shenmue 1 AND 2) as this isn't that serious and just a fun way to get to know more about everyone here.

For moi...

1) Shenmue 1 & 2 - Dreamcast, 1999 & 2001
2) Panzer Dragoon Saga - Saturn, 1998
3) Panzer Dragoon Orta - Xbox, 2002
4) The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - N64, 1998
5) Deus Ex - PC, 2000
6) Thief: The Dark Project - PC, 1998
7) Silent Hill 1-4 - PS1-PS2, 2001-2004
8 ) Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition - PS4, 2014
9) Mass Effect Trilogy - Xbox 360, 2012
10) The Legend of Dragoon - PS1, 1999

There have been lots of these over the years, but the last one was a year ago: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=46815

I'll consider changing my list

My list from last year was just ridiculous. I think I can narrow it down to top 20 pretty easily now. I'll only put in the games I've finished and left the most impression on me (in no order):

1. Snatcher (If there was ever a game that speaks to me on an aesthetic level, this is it. Cyberpunk adventure - Heaven.)
2. Metal Gear Solid
3. Ocarina of Time
4. Final Fantasy XII
5. Shin Megami Tensei 3 - Nocturne/Lucifer's Call
6. Digital Devil Saga 1&2
7. Dark Souls
8. Flower, Sun & Rain
9. killer7
10. Vagrant Story
11. Final Fantasy Tactics
12. Resident Evil 2
13. Fatal Frame 3
14. Nier
15. Parasite Eve
16. God Hand
17. Growlanser IV (most underrated game on this list! Best SRPG next to Matsuno's works)
18. Deus Ex: Human Revolution
19. Gravity Rush

And finally...
20. Shenmue I & II (which incorporates Space Harrier and Afterburner II too, of course!)

Honourable mentions:

Star Fox 64
Front Mission DS
MGS2 & MGS3
Resident Evil 5
REmake
Silent Hill 2
Siren: Blood Curse
Fatal Frame
Galerians
Soul Hackers
Drakengard
Deception 2
Persona series (2 and 4 especially)
Mega Drive games like Rocket Knight Adventures, Ristar, Sonic 2, Shinobi 3 - won't rank them since it's been so long since I last played them now, so...
Walking Dead Season 1
The Darkness
Soul Reaver
Metal Gear AC!D 2
Ghost Trick

Games that have "favourite games ever" potential that I haven't beaten yet but really liked what I played of them:

Breath of Fire V - Dragon Quarter
Chrono Trigger
Torico/Lunacy
Ogre Battle 64
Otogi
Raidou 2

I think it was the favourite vs favorite that didn't bring it up in the search.

I love making lists, but as soon as I do I realize games I forgot lol 10 is just such a low number. Its always easier for me to pick favorite games on a certain system than it is of all time, there's just soooo many. Chrono Trigger is my favorite though, that never changes.

It's alright, it's been long enough that we can have another.

My list from before was nuts too, but I guess maybe I can skim through it and pick out a few "if I were stuck on a desert island" ones:

Gravity Rush
Shinobi III
Wonder Boy in Monster World
Sonic 2
Ranger X
Bushido Blade
Parasite Eve
FFVII
Chrono Cross
Vagrant Story
Mega Man Legends 1&2 + Misadventures of Tron Bonne (MML was to me what Ocarina of Time seems to be to most others)
Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams
Jet Set Radio Future
Ridge Racer Type 4
Tenchu: Stealth Assassins
Fallout 2
Haunting Ground
Shenmue (Shenmue II is the better game, but as far as just making me feel good... I guess the original wins)

I'll stop there. Or else... y'know, I won't be able to.
More than ten, but it's better than I did last time.

2.) Shenmue
3.) Soul Blazer
4.) Earthbound
5.) Majora's Mask
6.) Mystical Ninja
7.) Super Metroid
8.) Metal Gear Solid
9.) Mega Man Legends
10.) Riven: Sequel to Myst

Made this is less than a minute to try to see what first came to mind. May not be completely accurate but it is what it is.

1 Shenmue & Shenmue II
2 Yakuza 1-4
3 Virtua Tennis 2
4 Shadow of the Colossus
5 The Neverhood
6 Raw Danger!
7 The Path
8 Tetris
9 Red Seeds Profile
10 WarioWare Inc.

So Yakuza jumps to number 2, Red Seeds Profile drops 7 places, and Tetris and WarioWare come in for Far Cry 2 and Age of Empires II.

Yeah. I loved Rush 1, 2 and 2049. I bought the newer LA Rush game but it was stupid. It tried to be like GTA. I just loved the ability to take shortcuts in the originals. My friend and I played the heck out of Rush 2. We turned off the HUD and played hide and seek.

Kudos to Gradius III, too. Games like that don't get nearly enough love nowadays.
