Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles In Time... - Super famicom and SNES
Aracde style turtles! I used to have this game and played it with all of my friends anytime I had one of them over. The good thing about this game is it didn't require a ton of skill and you could get through it relatively quickly. I loved the turtles when I was younger and this was my favorite beat'em up because of it.
Madden NFL 06 - Xbox
I could of put alot of Madden games on here but I just decided I would pick one that stood out. Newer ones of course have better graphics and more depth but I used to play this one religously and was as good at this one as I have been at all the others. I haved owned every madden since 01 and 12 is really good but 06 stands out to me. It had its new things like the passing cone I believe came from this one which stopped the 80yd bombs off the back foot across the field which was nice.
Donkey Kong Country Returns - Nintendo Wii
Further up the list is a couple of the other Donkey Kongs that I have beaten repeatedly so to say I was anticipating this is definitely an understatement. Luckily it didn't dissapoint! Both playing at the same time was so much fun instead of tagging in. The graphics stayed true to Donkey Kong as well as some rememerable music. I really liked the 2-D again with a little bit of 3-d mixed. It was right there with the New Mario as being addictive, challenging, and a blast.
Dragon Warrior - Famicom and NES
The first turn based RPG I played. One of the first ones on console to begin with. It was key in setting the stage for what came later. Going back and playing it takes me way back and I still enjoy it because of the memories but for someone new to go try it I wouldn't suggest it.
New Super Mario Bros. Wii - Nintendo Wii
Back comes Mario with another remarkable game! This game had everything I wanted growing up from the original Mario's (mainly 3 and SNES Mario World). You could play 4 players, you had new but awesome suits, and even a little extra conquest with the Gold Coins in each level. Loved every minute of this game.
Virtua Tennis - Sega Dreamcast
I bought my Dreamcast right around launch and this was the first game I had. I ended up playing and beating it 100% a few different times, even recently. My favorite Tennis game for sure. We used to go 2vs2 in jr.high and it never seamed to get old playing each other. Arcade style for sure as it isn't as in depth as say Top Spin but I enjoyed the simplistic aspect of it.
Super Mario Kart - Super famicom and SNES
The only Mario Kart where I mostly played it by myself. I got this game for my birthday when I was like 8 years old and it never got old. Going back its much harder to me than the ones that followed it. That is probably what made it fun for me because winning the 150cc Special Cup really felt like an accomplishment then. Plus the Battle Mode is still the one I enjoy more than the others and still have long drunken nights getting down on this game.
Call of Duty: Black Ops - Xbox 360
Sad to say this was actually the first COD I have played. I have a couple of the older ones I got with a bundle when I bought my 360 but played them sparingly to say the least and never online. I finally joined the craze and got this game and I put in a LOT of hours into this game. I wasn't special but I was pretty good and always enjoyed getting on with my buddies to kill some fools. The graphics and levels were great to start with, the dl maps sucked. Their were a lot of good guns and it seemed fairly balanced. Only knock on this game was the lack of snipeability.
James Bond 007: Agent Under Fire - GameCube
The only other worthy bond game in my opinion after Goldeneye. I don't have Goldeneye on the list as I have Perfect Dark which is just, to me, a better Goldeneye. But this Bond is the only other one I have really enjoyed the Single Player and the Multi both. I have had all the ones after this one (Nightfire, Quantum Solice, etc) and they had high points but this one I loved all of it. Using the q-claws and spidermanning around to no-scope bots/friends was SO addicting. We used to record ourselves 4p splitscreening because we had so much fun flying around and shooting each other.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Famicom and NES
Maybe its a sense of accomplishment, I can't explain it, but I still go through this game regularly and always have fun doing it. I know when I was younger I could not even get by the dam, like most people. So kind of like a bully when you are younger you can't beat up but when you get older and smarter you hold your own and it feels awesome. But as I got older and went back and made it a point to get through the game I really got into to it to the point where I want to do a speed run for it. It's not traditional turtles to say the least as they have all become more beat'em up than single player story mode but it's always been close to me.
Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! - Famicom and NES
Mike Tyson seemed unbeatable in real life and this game! This game did a great job of starting you off with a schlub and building you up to some real challenges. Passwords to skip some easy fighters and you got a highly addictive boxing game! It's not real strategical or in depth but that is almost the appeal to it because their was no way around it you had to out quick the punches and then punch back. They tried to re-create it but never quite could. Great game and still never gets old.
After playing the other Timesplitters games I was really hoping they did a 3rd one and brought it all together and to me they did. This game was awesome to play through 2p campaign. It was challenging and in-depth which made it fun as well as a funny story line. It is cheesy sometimes but I liked the dialogue and thought it was funny. Then the multip and everything that goes with it. All the bots/characters you can unlock and choose, a ton of maps, scenarios, challenges and the customization was unmatched then and even now for offline multi.
Syndicate Wars - PlayStation
This game to most people probly has no business being on this list. When I bought this game I had no idea what it was. I was young and was just looking around Electronics Boutique back in the day and read the back of it and it looked fun, it was co-op, and I went with it. Me and numerous friends of mine have beaten both the eurocorp and church sides MANY times and it was so much fun. It's got GTA 1 type graphics but not quite as zoomed in. It's a dark game in which it almost all happens at night which I liked. You could do ALOT in this game that I had never done. You could take any cars sitting around for a spin, shoot-up buildings, cops, civilians. You could even rob banks! Flying cars, crime syndicates fighting each other plus you could play 4p! Great fun.
Poy Poy - PlayStation
This game is responsible for a lot of blood, sweat, and tears to the people in my life. Not a lot of depth to it. The single player is supposed to be like a game show in which you are competing against 3 other players and the winner gets money. You unlock harder difficulties as you go and spend the money on "Gloves" which are like specials you can choose from. The gameplay of single player is IDENTICAL to the multiplayer. The reason it is on here is the amount of 4p action we had as a family/friends on this and the amount of turmoil it caused! Arguments and throwing real objects at each other was a common thing. The game itself you just chuck rocks, logs, missles or anything else around you to knock the other 3p out of the game. Pretty basic game but we got SO much out of it that it had to be on here.
Greatest Heavyweights - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
This game is what got me into boxing! I loved building up my guy to fight all of the greatest boxers of all time. Joe Louis, Muhammad Ali, and many others are just part of what made this game so fun. Pitting them all against each other for a quick tournament also added to it. This was a very challenging game as well, especially if you were a shorter guy vs a big guy. But the challenge was just frustrating enough to make you want to beat it. Which I did, numerous times.
Mega Man 8: Anniversary Edition - PlayStation
I had the first Megaman for gameboy but was too young to attempt to beat it. As I got older I bought this game and loved it! It's not the highest rated Mega Man but I loved the weapons and bosses (as corney as they may be) and the voice overs, even tough they were terrible. A little more added onto the traditional Mega man experience in which you collect secret screws and buy upgrades to make your gun super bad-ass in which ever way you choose. I eventually got the anniversary editions and have beaten most of them but this one is one of the few that always stuck with me.
Mario Party - Nintendo 64
My brother and I along with some friends used to play the crap out of this game. Even still, going strong, we still play ALL of the Mario Party's but this one stuck with me because we played it so much. Bumper Balls, Key-Pa-Way, Mushroom Mix-up, and of course Mario Bandstand. Loved mostly all the games but we always liked playing Bandstand even though nobody would mess up but the instructor would still lose! Just one of those memories that have made this game stick.
Marble Madness - Famicom and NES
Another weird one to most i'm sure but I had this on the NES and used to try and beat my record and not die on a daily basis. I believe this is a ported game from the arcade as it is a very basic game. Only a few levels and you literally just control this marble to the end of a race/obstacle course. The music in this game, especially, is what I LOVED. I never really played this with anyone else because nobody really liked it but to me it's one of my classics.
Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers - Super famicom and SNES
This game, Killer Instinct, Mortal Kombat 3, were all close to the same time but for some reason I always played this game. I liked being able to do a little bit of combos while just using some spam (haudoken) to go with it. KI was all combos while MK was uppercutting and single moves, to me. This was the perfect in between for me so I played it ALOT.
R.B.I. Baseball - Famicom and NES
I love baseball games. From RBI to World Series, Griffey, MVP, Triple Play, Slugfest and now the 2K games I like em all. But this one I still play regularly on my computer and against others. I like getting new ones and doing a franchise with my Royals but for just playing a baseball game randomly I still enjoy/prefer RBI baseball.
Final Fantasy VII - PlayStation
For what this game meant and how epic it was when it came out in so many ways it could easily be higher. But I have actually only played through this game once, MABYE twice but I can't remember for sure. It's actually one of the games that I enjoy reading about and watching people (my brother, friends) play just as much because I can't make Cloud fight better or anything because it's not that type of game. The story, graphics (for its time) and characters are what make this game great for me. Plus all of the freedom and extra stuff there is to do, loved chocobo racing.
ToeJam & Earl - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
I have a long history with this game. I played this when I was younger and loved it but we didn't own it. One of my older brother's friends had it over and I only got to play it a little bit so it drove me crazy trying to find it. As I got older I still couldn't find it as I wasn't involved with amazon or ebay yet and the game stores NEVER had this game. Finally within the last 6-7 years I have gotten ahold of this game again and play through it all the time. It's funny with the dialogue and addicitng with new levels every time you play it. Walking around finding presents and money doesn't sound like much but there is alot to this game and it's a challenge whether you play it alone or with a friend.
Mega Man 2 - Famicom and NES
My favorite Mega Man game of all time! That is actually saying something because I think their are 20+ Mega Man games out there (just estimating). I have played 1-10(last two on WiiWare) and x-x7. I have both collections and I still enjoy going through the 2nd one more than any others. I like my megaman basic for the most part with some good music playing. That sums this game up to a T, basic controls, AWESOME music, and the bosses were very fun/creative.
Super Mario Bros. 3 - Famicom and NES
Such a big upgrade to one of the most popular/sold games of all time it's unreal. They took Mario 1 and just RAN with it. It is better in all ways with new suits, worlds, and challenges. You could go all the way through it or use whistles (if you could find them) to zip right through it and show off your skills. Still fun to this day and really captured me in the Mario craze to which I never left.
Donkey Kong Country - Super famicom and SNES
Who knew? I didn't play any Donkey Kong games really before this one. I used mario to jump over some of his barrels in the real early game and even punched him in the mouth with Godzilla a bunch in Rampage but I didn't see this coming at all. I remember seeing the previews for this and not thinking much of it because I didn't know who the hell Donkey Kong was but I got the 2nd one when it came out and HAD to go back and get this one. I have the 2nd one higher up but that takes NOTHING away from this wonderful game. Music, graphics, co-op, challege,fun...this game had it all.

These are MY top 50 video games of all time. I don't think they are the greatest among the public but it's what I have played and enjoy the most. Their is going to be missing titles completely among the greatest games (i.e. pokemon, warcraft games) that I have not played.
