Sam & Max is just nuts! The characters are insane, the settings are insane, the stories are insane… but there's still logic to it, there's still method in all that madness. :) Sam and Max, a tall dog and a short white rabbit respectively, are "freelance police" on a different case in each of these six episodes. It's an early adventure game offering from Telltale Games, and its appeal comes mainly from its inspired creativity and uproarious humour. There are three packaged seasons of Sam & Max, but I'll always hold the first one closest to my heart for introducing me to this delightfully outrageous series.

Dino Crisis - PlayStation
When I was a teenager, this was probably the game you'd find me playing most often. I've always loved dinosaurs, but this is one of very few times when they've actually been scary! :) The great thing about Dino Crisis is that the dinosaurs rarely appear, which really keeps you on edge, because you know there could be another one around any corner. That's what makes good horror. The story does get increasingly preposterous, but I'm willing to let it pass; I still get swept up in it. Plus, I dare you to ignore that cold shiver when the screen shakes as the T-rex gets closer!

Super Mario Bros. - Famicom and NES
I'm actually encompassing the entire Mario franchise here. Yeah, I couldn't pick just one game! :) Every Nintendo console has its definitive Mario title: Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World, Super Mario 64, Super Mario Galaxy – I love them all. In any generation, the Mario franchise defines the word "fun". But then, the same can be said of Sonic the Hedgehog and Donkey Kong Country and many other old-school console games, which makes it hard not to fill the whole list with titles like that. But Mario still continues to reign supreme, so I'd say he's most deserving of a spot on the list.

Psychonauts - PlayStation 2
This is another one that's positively overflowing with creativity. The eponymous Psychonauts are basically elite soldiers with enhanced mind powers, and you play a boy in a psychic summer camp. You occasionally go inside people's minds, and the visual representative worlds are pure genius – and sometimes even lead to laugh-out-loud humour. True, the jumping controls can get really frustrating, and the game does drag on a bit, with more false endings than Return of the King (yeah, no joke!), but it's still a ton of fun to play, and it's bursting with so many clever ideas that it never ceases to amaze.

Batman: Arkham Asylum - PlayStation 3
This game is a Batman fan's dream come true! :) Simply setting it in Arkham Asylum is the perfect excuse to throw in as many Batman villains as you want – but never to the point of insanity; they're all well integrated into the story. I definitely don't consider combat my strong suit, so I'm glad the combat here is simplified to a few basic commands: you just tell Batman basically what to do and watch him do his thing. :) Plus you have Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill – for my money, still the best versions of their respective characters. …What else can I say? It's fucking Batman! :)

Far Cry 3 - PlayStation 3
This is the most recent addition to the list; this game completely blew me away. The story is just fantastic: a psychological journey of a man finding his identity as a warrior. But the gameplay experience itself is so amazing that I just can't do it justice. The missions can be tailored to your preferred gaming style – which, for me, is stealth. I have fun just exploring the island; the tropical scenery is pure bliss to take in while searching for radio towers or enemy outposts. :) Combined with the absolutely gorgeous graphics, it makes me feel like I really am walking among wild animals.

Sims 2, The - PC Games
Since The Sims is a concept without an ending, it's more of a constant activity than a game. The countless ways in which The Sims 2 improved on the original Sims just blew my mind. You have access to just about everything you could ask for to make your Sims' home life complete. Since I don't tune into much TV, I'm currently using The Sims 2 as my alternative, a TV soap that I have complete control over! :) I am interested in playing The Sims 3, so maybe that'll take two's place on this list at some point in the future.

Indigo Prophecy - PlayStation 2
Fahrenheit is more like an interactive story than a game – and a really damn good one. It's a murder story in which you play both the murderer and the police on the case, both equally determined to find the truth. It starts out relatively slow and gradually pulls you in, so that before long you're seized inescapably in the heart-stopping excitement of it all. The quick time events (moments where you simply have to press the right button at the right time), which dictate the action scenes, being so user-friendly certainly helps. Plus the characters are all memorable and the music is just fantastic.

Beyond Good & Evil - PlayStation 2
Oh my God, I love this game! :D I can't possibly praise it enough! The world of Hillys, combining humans and anthropomorphic animals, is probably my favourite fictional world ever. It has a brilliant storyline involving a rebel organisation exposing a deadly conspiracy. It's another one packed with stealth sections, which truly get your heart pounding. But it also has intense combat scenes, flying scenes and even racing scenes – it has everything you could ask for. :) And the music… the whole soundtrack is outstanding! Any way you look at it, Beyond Good & Evil is a masterpiece. I adore it to death.

Portal - PC Games
Once again, this actually refers to the whole series – both games. Yeah, I just couldn't choose between the two! :) They're basically puzzle games involving portals, but with a storyline that catapults them straight to elite status. Portal 1 stood solo at the top of my list for a long time, because it's the most perfect piece of entertainment I've ever seen in terms of atmosphere and story progression. I used to think Portal 2, though superior to the first one in many ways, spoiled the original somewhat by elaborating on a bit too much back-story. But it's grown on me, and now I just can't get enough of it. :) Both have their own strengths: Portal 1 is much darker and grittier, providing a pitch-perfect sense of complete isolation, while Portal 2 offers a wider array of puzzle elements, and is a lot funnier than the original to boot – which is not to say for a second that the original was slouching in the joke department, but the sequel has bigger and usually better gags. In any event, either one on its own is easily the most fun I've ever had playing a game. Both of them are staggeringly creative, hilarious, gripping, and like I said before, just all-around perfect.

While I did grow up playing games, and still maintain an interest in it today, I'm not what you'd call a gamer. Actually, my best friend John's a far more avid gamer than I am, and it's thanks to him that I came across most of the games on this list in the first place.
Now, obviously, these games may not be exclusive to the platforms I specify. Most modern-generation games are released for every console, as well as the PC. I've played several of these games on multiple platforms; I'm just including the versions I happen to own, the platform that I think suits that particular game best.
With that said, these are my own ten personal favourites, the ones that appeal to me the most.

Runners-up: Back to the Future: The Game (PC), Batman: Arkham City (PS3), Batman: Arkham Knight (PS4), Grim Fandango (PC), Half-Life 2 (PS3), Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis (PC), Mass Effect 2 (PS3), Tales from the Borderlands (PC), The Walking Dead (PC) and The Wolf Among Us (PC)

You can tell I like Telltale a lot! :D
