BabyChooChoo Presents BabyChooChoo's Top 10 Games of the Past 10 Years

Self-explanatory title. Won't include games from 2017 just because they're all so fresh in my mind and it's hard say how much of an impression they will have on me in the long run.

List items

  • I don't even know where to begin with this one. I love this game.

    I love this game.

    I love this game.

    There are some weird spikes in difficulty, but I love this game.

  • To properly cnovey my love of Final Fantasy XIV requires you to know one thing: I have a hard time sticking with MMOs. I've played almost any you could name, but never for more than a few months. At best, I would often come back to one or another later, but I don't think I would have ever called myself a regular player of any of them.

    Then I played this. I've been a regular player for almost three years now.

    Despite the freedom and depth of some of it's competition, XIV manages to deliver a truly wonderful experience thanks to...well...everything else.

  • Another arguably very straightforward JRPG, but this one contains one of my favorite stories and some of my favorite characters to ever grace a video game.

  • Without a doubt one of the most charming games ever for me. Between one of the most likable video game protagonists and being full of fun, unique mechanics, I feel like they made this game for me.

  • I gave this game my #3 spot last year, but I might just bump it up. Vanilliaware took one of the my favorite games and said, "we're going to make everything about it better."

    And they did.

  • This was my first Etrian Odyssey game and I hate myself for not getting into this franchise sooner. Between the music, characters, art, and story, it's just such a magical experience.

  • One of the most criminally forgotten JRPGs of our generation.

  • Blue Dragon is a pretty straightforward rpg all things considered, but it's one I just can't forget.

  • Yet another game I just can't explain my love for. I won't sit here and claim it doesn't have it's fair share of faults, but they didn't bother me.

  • I don't know what it is about this game, but I couldn't get enough of it. Maybe it's the fps aspect? Either way, I think back on this game and all I have are great memories.
