Final Fantasy VII - PlayStation
My all time favorite game. Enough said.
Metal Gear Solid - PlayStation
Classic. Although I consider myself a big fan of the Metal Gear franchise, none of the games have even come close to the original "solid".
Ultima Online: Age of Shadows - PC Games
Ultima Online at it's best, the Age of Shadows expansion. If only modern MMOs would learn from their roots...
Diablo II - PC Games
You know it's a great game when, so many years after release, other games are still referred to as being "Diablo-style RPGs".
Fallout 2 - PC Games
My all-time-favorite Fallout game. While the new Fallout games did a great job in recreating the fallout experience in First-Person, they really didn't capture the atmosphere that was present in the original games.
Half-Life - PC Games
My all-time favorite shooter. Very fond memories of playing this through over and over and over. I can't wait for a worthy remake (www.blackmesasource.com)
Portal - PC Games
A first-person platformer that works. Very clever story teamed up with brilliant portal based puzzles. I've been meaning to try out the game that lead to portal, the team's original game/project Narbacular Drop
FEZ - PC Games
A great game, highly influenced by many classics that I loved. The unique gameplay was a blast and the game had me hooked until the end.
Perfect Dark - Nintendo 64
Awesome multiplayer. Perfect Dark added a lot of good ideas to the already great Goldeneye multiplayer formula. With cool weapons, game modes, bots, awards and stat tracking, this game had a ton of replay value for me. Single player was not the game's strong point, though entertaining, it was still my favorite N64 game.
Half-Life 2 - PC Games
Valve did a great job turning Half-Life into something more. With a great backstory, revolutionary source engine and episodic content, this is easy favorite for any shooter fan.
Borderlands 2 - PlayStation 3
Borderlands was a great game and the sequel was an improvement in every way. I have put many hours into Borderlands 2 and plan on spending many many more.
Minecraft - PC Games
Just one more block...
Final Fantasy Anthology - PlayStation
Two final fantasy games in one package. FFV and FFVI, both great games. FFV is more of the traditional Final Fantasy game only with a deep job system and FFVI trying something different with the steam punk setting and enthralling story - paving the way for Final Fantasy VII.
GoldenEye 007 - Nintendo 64
The console shooter that changed it all.
Dead Space - PlayStation 3
Survival Horror set in Space, it works too well. Space is probably my favorite place to be scared in.
Shadow of the Colossus - PlayStation 2
My favorite PS2 game. I think it is especially cool how the game shifts between the quiet rides between colossi and epic battles and music.
RollerCoaster Tycoon - PC Games
The only thing bad about this game was that it lead to an over-population of knockoffs.
Primordia - PC Games
A awesome post-apocalyptic title in a really cool world that I hope I have not seen that last of.
Deus Ex - PC Games
Part FPS; part RPG. Thank you Deus Ex!
Sid Meier's Civilization: Revolution - PlayStation 3
A great variant to the original series. Revolution allows you to get the Civ experience in 30-60 minute game sessions. Too bad the console version didn't include local multiplayer/hotseat mode. Shame on you Sid Meier.
The Binding of Isaac - PC Games
The best rogue-like experience I have found so far, teamed with a very disturbing and sometimes distasteful theme. I feel guilty liking this game so much.
Team Fortress 2 - PC Games
I've always liked Team Fortress but it wasn't until recently I really gave the sequal a real chance. With the addition of random loot the game brought itself on par with modern multiplayer shooters.
GunBound - PC Games
Worms only with tanks and rpg elements. A great F2P game.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - PlayStation 3
I don't think that Bethesda got it right until now. Skyrim addresses a ton of issues that I had with past titles. The combat (especially magic) is fun, the animations are less painful and the game is feels balanced.
Sanctum 2 - PC Games
Scifi FPS tower defense. The atmosphere reminds me of playing Phantasy Star Online. Great game!
The Sims - PC Games
The ability to simulate everyday life. I don't think I'll ever know why it's so fun.
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - Nintendo 64
The greatest Zelda game, in my eyes. It was exciting, looked great and had a fresh feel to it. I haven't been able to have as much fun in the newer titles.
Harvest Moon: Back To Nature - PlayStation
Harvest Moon at it's best. Other titles seem to struggle, and I await the day for a new one to dethrone "Back to Nature".
F.E.A.R.: First Encounter Assault Recon - PC Games
Didn't scare or freak me out really, but defiantly has a creepy atmosphere, bullet time and coolish story that had me coming back for a [fourth] playthrough.
Almost didn't want to put WOW on this list, but I did have a lot of fun playing it [through BC]. I think that it overstayed it's welcome.
Fallout: New Vegas - PlayStation 3
This struck me as a really great addition to the fallout universe. The hardcore mode really stuck out as a great feature that really made me feel like I was stuck in post apocalyptic America. Where I thought that Fallout 3 failed, this totally succeeded in enhancing the franchise.
Borderlands - PlayStation 3
I'm a sucker for random loot and post apocalyptic adventures, so this caught my eye right away. Clap Traps and easter eggs made it great.
Anarchy Online - PC Games
I miss the days of playing Anarchy Online. Maybe one day we will see a sequel...
Red Dead Redemption - PlayStation 3
I HATE westerns. If Rockstar can make a "Western" game that I like, they must be doing something right...
Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel - PC Games
I actually welcome this into the fallout universe. I thought it was a Very fun [tactical] game and didn't disapoint.
StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty - PC Games
While the original StarCraft had a really cool story, StarCraft II got me actually apply myself to improving my strategy game skills, as well as broaden my scope of strategy games that I played.
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare - Xbox 360
The original Modern Warfare had a great story and awesome multiplayer. The newer games have a lacking story and serve as more of a multiplayer update, in my opinion. Why create a game with such high replay ability and then release a new game each year with the same formula?
Heavenly Sword - PlayStation 3
A great action RPG with a cool story. It looked great and was fun to play. Quicktime events were frustrating and minigames were lame.
Grand Theft Auto IV - PlayStation 3
GTA with a darker feel to it. Visuals were great and moving around the city had a more real feel to it. I'm glad that Rockstar is moving in this direction with the GTA franchise as I was never really a fan of the (almost) cartoony feel the previous games had.
Super Mario 64 - Nintendo 64
Mario in 3D with addictive star-collecting in an open world. Genius.
StarCraft: Brood War (Expansion) - PC Games
Great ending to the original Starcraft. Pretty crazy campaign levels and story plus the addition of a few new expansion units.
Fallout 3 - PlayStation 3
Bethesda did a great job bringing Fallout to 3D. It was a very touchy project having fans of the series being extra critical, but I was not let down.
Pokémon: Red Version - Game Boy
I've always liked collectibles, so basing an rpg around collectible animals to do battle with was a winning combination and the primary use of my gameboy.
Need for Speed: Underground - PC Games
Fast, fun racing with highly customizable cars. NOS boosts and blurring effects were really intense.
Super Mario World - Super famicom and SNES
A big game with a ton of areas to explore and unlock. Riding around on the multiple types of Yoshi was a highlight of my gaming youth.
Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords - PlayStation Portable
Bejeweled RPG. A fun spin on classic gem matching.
Fallout - PC Games
Hard to return to the original Fallout after all of the improvements in Fallout 2 but I still have fond memories of playing it.
Team Fortress Classic - PC Games
My favorite (original) Half-Life mod. 2fort 24/7
Final Fantasy VIII - PlayStation
Originally I viewed this as a letdown after FFVII but the series took a turn in the wrong direction after this game. FFVIII was a good game in own rights and I hope we see more games like VI VII & VIII.
Realm of the Mad God - PC Games
Part rogue-like, part MMO, part bullet hell. Crazy combo, but it works!
