A Link to the Past is totally my favorite game of all time, too. Nice list.
now I want to do this
@Super__Sam: Yeah, I could've picked any of them. It's splitting hairs, but I went with the last one since it was the pinnacle (in terms of mechanics and features) of what Aki was doing. I probably had more hours logged in Revenge, especially in multiplayer, than I did in No Mercy.
@Marino I totally back you on choosing WWF No Mercy! My personal favorite is WCW/nWo Revenge, but I'm a WCW fan heh heh. Those games are definitely the best games on the N64.
"5. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
SNES --- Favorite game of all time, so of course it's the best SNES game. I will argue to the grave that this is better than Ocarina of Time."
Hooray for Super Smash Brothers Melee (by far my favourite of the series) and Mass Effect 2!
Cool list, and I can understand your choices (agree with a lot of them), but WWF no mercy instead of Ocarina of Time made me cry really REALLY hard, in fact I'm still crying :'(
I'm going to grade your picks on a 1-10 scale (only grading the ones I have played), and yes I realize that these are your opinions but I feel like critiquing them anyways to see what you think. The Legend of Zelda - 5 (I personally don't think its even close to being the best NES game but I can see why people like it) The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past - 7 (The SNES is such a great system with so many great games that its hard to pick just one, link to the past was one of the few zelda games I enjoyed but when it comes to a system that has so many classics, its outclassed IMO. Not a bad pick though.) Final Fantasy VIII - 5 (minus one point for calling it PSX [its PS1 damn it!] I really enjoyed the card battle minigame and the story but the gameplay was awkward IMO.) WWF No Mercy - 4 (N64 WWF games were pretty good, but when your looking at a system that has such classics like Super Mario 64, Banjo Kazooie, Perfect Dark, etc. this pick seems really silly) SSX 3 - 6 (SSX Tricky was a much better game IMO, but I will admit because the PS2 has such a massive library its almost impossible to pick one game so I graded this one easier, picking a non-exclusive is strange though especially considering how many great PS2 exclusives there are) Beyond Good & Evil - 7 (again not picking an exclusive is strange, but more excusable due to the Xbox not having as many good exclusives as the PS2, Beyond Good & Evil is a cult classic) Super Smash Bros. Melee - 8 (I like this pick, great addicting game, definitely one of the stand outs of a relatively weak console) Mass Effect 2 - 1 (lets just say I was very disappointed in ME2 ;)) Marble Blast Ultra - 3 (sure its a good game, but come on the best? I don't think so) Overall grade: 5.1/10 Some strange picks in there but hey its your opinion afterall. :) Recommending this list because you put a lot of effort in it with the descriptions and all.
Super Mario Galaxy? Mario & Luigi? Final Fantasy VIII? ...we may be the same person. But wait, Link to the Past is better than Ocarina? And Super Metroid/Chrono Trigger/Mega Man X? Uh...well, that's your call I guess. I want to steal this list idea and make my own! Okay? Okay. Read mine. Thanks!
I couldn't agree more
No Mercy and Paper Toss are the best choices for their respective systems. You have some of the best lists on the site.
I've got to say, for the systems I've owned, I would agree with most of your picks. Spot on with Uncharted 2, Animal Crossing Wild World (I swear that game, if melted, becomes fine crack cocaine), NFL 2K1, and Super Mario Galaxy. The other games are very good as well. Great job on the list.
Playstation 1 has too many amazing games to pick just one!
Nice! Everquest was so great, but what really amazes me is your listing of Car Wars! God damn that game was great, perhaps not my favorite TI994a game, I also loved A Maze ing, TI Toad, TI Invaders, but it's up there. To this day I can enjoy a game of Car Wars. I also had TI994a as my first gaming platform.
Shit yeah, Metal slug, I spent so much money down in the arcades playing that game, wicked.
