So yeah this is a hackneyed premise of a thread, but I'm just interested enough in my own list of my 10 favorite games that I thought I'd share it with you guys and get feedback on yours. So here goes:
1. Super Mario Bros. 3 - Well, duh.
2. Knights Of The Old Republic - I didn't play Baldur's Gate so this pretty much introduced me to BioWare. And uh, Star Wars for that matter. So, yeah.
3. Mass Effect - More sci-fi RPG stuff, and this was all new and reading the codex makes me giddy.
4. Final Fight - yes I am a neanderthal I like walking down streets and punching punks and eating hamburgers out of trash cans
5. Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal - still the best pokemon games
6. Final Fantasy 9 - still the best FF game
7. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - still the best GTA game. Grove Street! And that soundtrack.
8. Def Jam: Fight For NY - This is really the culmination of every one of those AKI N64 wrestling games. So much fun. And Henry Rollins runs the gym!
9. Portal - The only first person anything that doesn't give me a headache. Plus it is hells of clever and funny.
10. Spider-Man 2 - This one's not fair, because I don't really like the game so much as swinging around the city. Still, it's Spider-Man, and it's awesome.
so yeah those are mine what are yours
