Top 10 favourite video games of all-time

Recommended Posts

Never got into Zelda to be honest. Reviews are all over the place for that game. A 7 on one site, and a 10 on another. Who to trust?

Listen to the bajillion sites that say it's 10 stars. It's an amazing game. Brawl is good too though.

To me the series stopped being good after Wind Waker, so I guess it's only a question of perspective...

 

Also, I should add Grand Theft Auto: Vice City to my special mentions, I had so much fun with that game :P

This. Almost every poor review I've seen of Skyward Sword has boiled down to the reviewer being anal about the game using cell-shaded graphics.

I have read the reviews and they seem to be knocking it down because it is similar to other Zelda games. Like they say, if it ain't broke, don't fix it! (Y)

I just finished playing through the original Knights of the Old Republic (2003). Definitely one of my favorite games, and one of the best game stories I've seen along with Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney.

I must argue that the best video game story I have seen is probably the Portal series, followed by the Myst series. Games such as Driver: San Francisco are also pretty great in the storyline department; what I wish more games had.

You want more storyline?

 

Phoenix Wright Series

Miles Edgeworth Investigations

Ghost Trick

Professor Layton Series

 

BAM.

This.

 

Skyrim has an acceptably delicious storyline if you're willing to put up with the huge deus ex machina in the beginning.

I haven't played any console games made after like 2003, except for playing other people's games. Choosing games for this list would be tough. My era was Super Nintendo and Playstation, and between those, very much Squaresoft and Nintendo. I'll just name some of the games that impressed me most, and that I still like and possibly play in emulation, since my playstation died and my super nintendo is just annoying to set up.

 

1. Super Metroid

2. Chrono Trigger

4. Xenogears

5. Final Fantasy IX

5. Metal Gear Solid

6. Kirby Super Star

7. Earthbound

8. Yoshi's Island

9. Super Mario RPG

10. Final Fantasy VII

I don't think it's that odd, exactly. VI has good characters, but the plot was less interesting, by a lot. VII had good characters too, but weird mechanics and the ugliest, nastiest aesthetics. It's subjective, but I just prefer IX in those respects. Its gameplay was interesting too, and of course it had better graphics.

Oh, it's fine, I respect every opinion on the matter, I was just asking because I personally largely prefer FF VI and VII to IX, possibly even IV comes before IX. Personal tastes ;)

About a month ago I beat Bioshock 1 and 2, and even though I never really like first person shooters, I ought to add them to my top 20 list.

My accounting would be different if it factored in the various computer games I play. I don't really know how to compare a FF game to something like Dungeon Crawl or Chip's Challenge. Games that are different every time, or involve abstract problem solving to such a degree, are hard to compare with an engrossing story.

 

Then again, I maybe ought to have included Cave Story on that list, since it's the same kind of game.

I found Yoshi's Island totally annoying, and a big letdown from SMW. The concept was decent, but the controls were difficult and I didn't care for the cartoony backgrounds.

Yoshi's Island had a much better soundtrack, story, and level design. I gotta admit that it's not "your standard platformer", with Mr. Baby Mario who you gotta carry all around the place. Irritating stuff, but if you can get over it, I believe it's better than SMW.

I really like most everything about its aesthetics and level design. It's a little too easy though, maybe, except for those darned bonus levels. And the screeching wail of Baby Mario is truly wretched, but it's supposed to be.

 

I like the controls better, although the egg-throwing mechanic was still tricky and made the final boss battle unnecessarily difficult.

I'm bumping this thread for one reason.

 

Mario and Luigi: Dream Team has gotta be the best of the whole Mario and Luigi series of all time. I've been playing the game for at least 5 days straight and I'm not even halfway through it!
