Great Games You've Never Played Before

I'm sure many of you have seen or heard many games that received numerous game of the year awards, included in several nominations and voted by fans to be the best of the best, but for some reason, you've never played them before so what are they? Here are some games that I've never ever played before in my life:  
 
(P/S: Please ignore some of the underlines below. They're glitches and I'm not sure how to get rid of them.)
  
1. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

I grew up with Nintendo but for whatever reason, out of all the games Nintendo has provided us over the years, I never touched a Legend of Zelda game before and this is one of them. It still puzzles me as to why I missed such a great big series when growing up. I guess it's because Mario, Donkey Kong and Metroid looked a lot more fun than Zelda. Can't really say why. Just in recent years did I get to play the Legend of Zelda: A Link to The Past on the Game Boy Advance and began to take interest from then on. The other reason was probably because after the Super Nintendo era, I sort of stopped playing games for a few years and by the time I started playing them, I went to the Gamecube era and missed the Nintendo 64 and Dreamcast era entirely so that was why I missed playing Ocarina of Time.  

It's been called the best Zelda game ever made, which makes me pissed. I can't believe I missed such a great game when it was first released. I could play it right now but the impact wouldn't be the same, so for now I'll just read the infamous Legend of Zelda timeline theory, which I heard it's very VERY confusing. 
 

2. Castlevania

Like I mentioned earlier in my previous post at the forums, I've never touched a Castlevania game before so if I would to dive into the series right now, I'd be totally lost in terms of learning its storyline and characters. Poor me.  
 
 
 
 
 

3. Goldeneye 007

Like I said before, I missed the Nintendo 64 era and instead skipped to the other consoles like the PlayStation and Gamecube, so to hear people talking about it and you can't relate to their praises, that's just not cool. There's a new Goldeneye coming out for the Wii but I doubt it'll be the same experience. 
 
 
 
 
 
4. Sonic The Hedgehog

Never own a Sega console and never played a Sonic game before. I've no regrets. 
 
 
 
 
 
 

5. Mega Man

It's embarrassing to miss such a great franchise from Capcom but what can you do? 
 
 
 
 
 
 

6. Lara Croft: Tomb Raider

I admit: I love video game chicks and games that have chicks in them but as to why Lara Croft: Tomb Raider is never in my list, I have no idea. Maybe it's because the concept of seeing a tom boy with guns shooting wild animals and going to countless tombs endlessly searching for some old treasures is not my idea of fun. 
 
 
 
 

7. Grand Theft Auto

This is perhaps the only series in this list that I have a choice to play but I choose not to. I'm not a big fan of sandbox games. I don't like games that gives you too much freedom and a choice to explore areas and the people around you. Sure, it's fun blasting pedestrians with big guns, ramming them with a car and scare them with your big money but they never appealed to me. I like my games to be straightforward: just kill the bad guys, complete a level and move on.

 
 
 
 

8. Battlefield

Not much to say except that when this game came out, so was Counter-Strike (roughly) and when it did, I just sticked with Counter-Strike and didn't bother with Battlefield at all. 
 
 
 
 
 

9. Ultima

I'm not a big fan of RPG so is there anything for me to say about Ultima? No. However, I've heard that some of them are pretty good like Ultima V so maybe I'll pick that one up some day. 
 
 
 
 
 

10. EverQuest

Don't know and don't care :P 
  
 
 
 
 
 
 

I have a whole lot more but let's just keep it at minimum.  So there you have it. A big list that I'm not quite proud of. What big titles haven't you played before?
