In no specific order...

Super Mario Bros...

Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2.

DEVIL MAY CRY 1, 2 and 3. Not 4 because Nero is in it.

Twisted Metal series, except 3 and 4, which were disowned by the developers for being so bad. Twisted Metal Black is most likely the best of the bunch.

FFX and X-2... For those who know me well enough, my reasons are obvious.

The Max Payne games... Max Payne is just amazing. Simply amazing. Wondrous narrative, brilliant gameplay, fantastic storyline. I love it.

Portal, for sheer innovation.

Super Mario Bros. 3 is one of my favourites. It has a good number of levels and the variety of power-ups are great. ^^

How is "Real" a good game? We don't play games for reality.

Have you played Paper Mario and the Thousand-Year Door?

It's such an amazing sequel.

yeh Ocarina is the best game ever for me. There is just sort of something about that game, hard to explain but it just has that magic so to speak


Indeed. Partial nostalgia, but also it was the first game where you could just sort of..roam wherever you wanted to. It had so much to do.

But yes, it is very hard to put your finger on it...


After reading this list...I really want to get Elder Scrolls. X-box 360 or what?

This is why I play games like Final Fantasy and Zelda, because they are a wonderful, and quite often BEAUTIFUL escape from reality. Also, the plot lines in said games above are quite brilliant, of course, as I've said before, if the games are in a series, there will always be a weak one. (Though I loved playing FFIII, the plot line wasn't a patch compared to other ones I've played)

Games overall need be judged by gameplay. Graphics can come into play after that.

Though in games like World of Warcraft I do enjoy some amazing landscapes from on tops of mountains.

Exactly. That's what I've found wrong with this generation of consoles. The emphasis on graphics makes the gameplay suffer. Sadly, very few devs have the resources to make both gameplay and graphics up to par; half the 360 games I own feel like Tech Demos.

I 100 percent agree with The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time to be the best video game ever! The reason it is still the best to me, is because it takes me back to that special time when i first saw it. I was maybe 6-7 years old and N64 was the BEST! Being 6-7, i never saw a game like it. It was so magical to play and the story still stands today. I feel warm and fuzzy when i re play from the start. I get excited and it brings back memories of a simpler time. The dramatic cut-scenes, great bosses and music...WOW! I absolutley love this game.


Other favs are:
Star Wars Jedi Outcast
Star Wars KOTOR
Prince of Persia: Sands of Time
Super Smash Bros(64 and GameCube versions are great)



Current LD goal(s): To get back on a consistent routine!

That's why Wii is the best system. Nintendo is without a doubt the best video game company of all time.

Ps3 and X-box 360 will battle each other to death over graphics, while Wii flies by with extraordinary gameplay and innovation.

I smell flamewar. There is no best system, it all depends on what you want. XBOX360 is really lucky in terms of game line-up, PS3 has quite a few games with a unique experience only for the system, and Wii is innovative, and has demostrated the capacity to make money from non-gamers as well. Graphics don't come into it that much.
