My Favorite Games
I've probably gone through five or six iterations of the list, only to have me feel like the format in which I'm doing so is restrictive. So I've decided to put my favorite games together here and not cap the list. This list isn't intended to be a list of the best games, as that's too subjective, rather is just a list of my favorite.
This is the mental checklist I went through whenever I'd consider adding a game to the list.
- Would you recommend it?
- Would you play it again?
- Could you "geek out" about it if someone started talking about it?
- Would you feel compelled to argue with someone if they called it a bad game?
- If you take nostalgic fondness out, would it still be fun today?
I feel pretty strongly about the top 12 being my favorite in that order. The rest I still really think are amazing games and are certainly favorites, they just don't resonate with me the way the games in my top 12.
