1. Super Mario Bros.
Probably my first video game, My Sister and I would sit in our parents' bedroom and play Super Mario Bros for hours. We never got very far but I know the first 4 levels like the back of my hand. Also, I always preferred Luigi.
2. Mad Dog McCree
Used to play this on the Family Computer in the Late 90's. We never got very far in the story but I could almost play the first 10 minutes blind folded. Still some of the most memorable sound effects I've ever heard in a video game.
3. Halo: Combat Evolved
Loved this game when it first came out in 2001. My Sister and I loved to make mini games out of the levels like warthog chicken. I still remember sitting at the lunch table in school and exchanging funny Halo stories with my gamer friends. All you fair-weather Halo fans can hate all you want, Halo: Combat Evolved is one of my favorite games of all time.
We got this game for my grandparents to play but my sister and I ended up playing it more than they did so we had to get a copy for ourselves. I loved the gritty characters,stylish music and various game play modes.
5. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
My First RPG and currently my favorite video game. This 2003 Star Wars game comes the closest I've ever seen to actually putting you in the movies. The Heart pounding combat, the deep and interesting characters and the mind boggling plot turns kept me dripping with anticipation whenever I had to stop playing.
