1. Metal Gear Solid
My favourite game of all time.
It's pretty much perfect for its time...I think I've finished it about 12 times over the years
That says a lot about a game..or me...
2. Disgaea: Hour of Darkness
I lost a summer to this game.
its got everything
3. Final Fantasy VII
Like many, this was my first introduction to FF.
Only time i ever cried at a videogame.
To be fair i was 14..
I'm not Korean. Lets get that out of the way.
It's starcraft...what more do you want?
Also..as a life long mac user its not like i've had much choice
5. Diablo II
6. Beyond Oasis
I loved this game on my mega drive.
Great Zelda style gameplay with just a pinch more pazazz
7. The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX
My first, and to be honest, only Zelda game Ive ever bothered to play to completion.
I got this when i was 8 and loved it.
I'm not the biggest Zelda fan, but this turned me on to RPGs..so I love it for that in itself
Brilliant and fun, also...available for mac.
9. Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Soulstorm
I'm a life long GW fan..so when this series came along it was like mana from heaven..especially when i got it too..thats right..work on my mac.
10. Sonic the Hedgehog 2
First game i got with my megadrive (bundled as they were back then)
Perfect in every way..god that casino stage music was awesome.
11. Streets of Rage 2
Its that good.
My best friend growing up and I spent forever playing this game...over and over again.
Never got old
12. Street Fighter Alpha 3
My personal favourite of the SF series, followed by Third Strike.
I just love the systems in the game, and the flow.
13. Dead Rising
Before my 360 committed suicide, twice, this way the game that I enjoyed most on the platform. Time limits? Yep..made life more interesting. Zombie wasps? Errr..yes.
14. Elite Beat Agents
Greatest Idea for a game..possibly ever.
We need a sequel.
This game accounts for 2 of my friends buying DSs.
Well this and Castlevania
15. Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 FES
I'm putting this in rather than 4 because it was a totally new experience for me.
Awesome in every respect...well apart from Marin Karin every fucking turn.
16. Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor
Great little SMT game.
I much prefered this to strange journey..probably because it's based in a simulacrum of reality.
I'm more of a grounded Sci-Fi kinda guy
17. The World Ends With You
Rewrote the rule book for DS rpgs and games on that platform.
Zetta Slow bitches.
18. Ninja Gaiden Black
Play this on hard, then you've got bragging rights.
19. Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
I'm kinda sticking Restless Dreams in here with it.
Brilliant psychological games that really make you think about what you've been doing and why.
20. Halo: Combat Evolved
THE perfect FPS in every respect.
I loved this game soo much, I played it till I could complete the majority of legendary with only grenades and a pistol....god I love that pistol.
Shame about the rest of the series.
21. God Hand
Best game ever?
22. Tales of Symphonia
I actually prefer the 'Tales of..' games to..well pretty much every other RPG.
Great storyline, great characters, and the skit option is great fun as well.
23. Blood Will Tell: Tezuka Osamu's Dororo
Bits of you body have been cut off and replaced by weapons...you must go get them back.
Samurai killing ninja magic craziness? Right here bub.
They say its a hard game....perhaps it is, but I loved every minute of it.
Setting up and performing 10-20 tates in a row...that's a pay off right there.
One hit killing a boss after tateing everyone else?
25. Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening
Still the best of the series.
The intro alone is worth buying the game.
26. Final Fantasy X
At the time, i loved this game. Auron was a great character, i loved whiling away my days playing blitzball, and the story wasn't that bad. I don't know if it would stand up today, but I have fond memories of it
27. Mobile Suit Gundam: Gundam vs. Gundam Next Plus
Its got Gundam Spiegel in it.
GUNDAM FUCKING SPIEGEL.
That aside, its the best fighter on the psp that will never get a western release.
28. Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes
I loved this game. Mix Dynasty Warriors with the strategic planning of the total war series and set it in a dark fantasy world and this is what you get.
Where's the KUF2?
29. BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger
I have lost more than my soul to this game now.
I liked guilty gear, i adore Blazblue.
