That's a bit rude actually. We're all entitled to play what we want to. Maybe he has played older games, maybe he hasn't, but thats up to him really. If he likes those games then can't we just respect his taste?

Also me and Bahamut are not relatives, we're soulmates ;)

Not meant to be rude and he is completely entitled to his opinion of course and I know he's played older games, it just seems strange to see a Top 10 list of pretty much all new games.

Also me and Bahamut are not relatives, we're soulmates ;)

This explains so much... the door has been opened.

Shame, really. I liked that thread of yours and my top 10 still remains. Well, apart from TF2 which now sucks. Still, it can be seen here.

lol at Command & Civilization typo.

I suppose FFVI will replace TF2 in the top 10. I need to replay FFVI very soon.

Only two of her games match my top 10. And yes, we are soulmates as she stated.

I think I'll narrow this list down to my 10 favorite PS3 game. And all these games are 10/10 in my eyes so these games does alle share the 1st place in some kind of way. Anyways here is the list:

1: Red Dead Redemption
2: Assassin's Creed Bortherhood
3: Batman Arkham Asylum
4: Uncharted: Drakes Fortune
5: InFamous
6: Bioshock
7: Borderlands
8: Brutal Legend
9: Heavy Rain
10: Mirror's Edge

It's a shame to not see Metal Gear Solid 4 on this list...

Sorry for the doublepost, but I figured I had to write a second list where I list my top 10 game-series! It's a little easier to name favorite series then just individual games.

1: The Legend of Zelda
2: Metal Gear Solid
3: Kindom Hearts
4: Assassin's Creed
5: Ratchet & Clank
6: Jak & Daxter
7: Sly Raccoon
8: Uncharted
9: God of War
10: Guitar Hero / Rock Band

This thread would be a lot more interesting if there were more users sharing real inputs for their top 10 like Dean and idiot-monarch rather than dropping a list of ten games that they like the most. At least TGO's thread from last year enforced that.

Aight. Wrote my first one; others will follow when I've got a chance.

1) Cave Story

The perfect platformer/side-scroller. That comes from its simplicity: it doesn't try to be [too] "innovative" like other games nor is it too simple mirroring games like Pong and the like. And it's also light-years ahead of all the other artsy freeware garbage that's been released. It has weapon variety and most of them can level up; my most used ones were the knife/sword, and rifle that let you rocket jump (can't remember the specific name). The story is just fun with sad moments throughout (CURLY ;____;). There's also its nostalgic value, but it's such a unique and new experience that all of my love isn't just because of nostalgia; it can get difficult later on but nothing ball-crushing.

9) Max Payne

Replaced F/SN with this, by the way.

Easy 'nuff

#1 Fallout New Vegas - hours upon hours of awesome fun. Can't wait for the next fallout installment after Skyrim
#2 Garry's Mod - thousands upon thousands of hours. So much awesome in one mod? nuts.
#3 Call of Duty Modern Warfare/Mw2/Mw3 - Sure it may be the same thing every other year, but so what? New shit to level up and play. It's the same godamn awesome formula and I love it.
#4 Mass Effect 1/2 - like it says on the box; "genuine epic gaming"
#5 Metal Gear Solid 3 - my favourite in the series, great story and gameplay, an all around winner (oh and the theme song is the win)
#6 Crash Team Racing - like Mario Kart but like a bajillion times better, and crash bandicoot!
#7 Breath of Fire IV - legendary PS1 RPG from my childhood, always been a goodun'
#8 Far Cry 2 - too much awesome for an FPS, srsly. Free roaman, gun collectan, pmc killan...
#9 DJ Hero 1/2 - best soundtrack. Yknow, ever.
#10 Crash Twinsanity - classic Crash in new form, with a kickass soundtrack. Yknow, great.

Well, after I post this I bet one comes straight to me and I'm like "SHIT! forgot that game!"


Come on in, be a guy, pull up a chair!

As Bahamut suggested, I'll just explain my list.

At 11/14/11 08:16 PM, FlaminSquirrel wrote: 1. Banjo-Kazooie
2. Banjo-Tooie

IMO the best that 3D platformers have to offer. Colorful characters, wacky stages and bosses, and hilarious all the way through. To be quite honest the two can be interchanged on my list; I like the first two games so much.

3. Team Fortress 2

I never spent so much time on an online shooter before. TF2's very fun on the normal levels, but the custom modded levels/modes always puts a smile on my face. There was one server where I played a Pac-Man stage, and I've never had so much fun on multiplayer in my life.

4. Halo: Combat Evolved

Another fun title, I picked this one because of its multiplayer. I played the PC version's online mode a lot and I've always had a blast. It reminds me of the Quake games in which you start out with two weapons and had to know where the other weapons are on the map. The campaign is interesting as well, but the multiplayer always interested me. Also the mods are pretty cool. Ocarina of Time in my Halo? YES PLEASE.

5. Doom

Simple, fast, and full of replay value with user-made levels. Need I say more?

6. Metroid Prime

I'll tell you, there's only a few games in which I actually felt immersed. Metroid Prime's one of them. The entire atmosphere of the game is amazing and you get that feeling of loneliness and haunting between the baron lands, old corridors, and the music. Oh God that music. In short, it blends together an experience that actually does suck me in.

7. Super Mario Galaxy

I'm a fan of platformers, as you can tell. Mario platformers are always a treat for me, but Super Mario Galaxy takes the cake for my favorite Mario game. The level designs and concepts in the game are very well-done, and the graphics put any other Wii game to shame. Plus the orchestrated music in the game adds to the overall experience. An orchestra in a Mario game, now that's a treat in its own right IMO.

8. Dragon Ball Z Budokai

I will keep whoring out this game until the end of time. Call me a weeaboo if you want, I still say that DBZ: Budokai has the best storytelling of any of the other DBZ games. Plus the fighting mechanics were awesome and fast-paced and definitely improved with the other Budokai games. But the first one always gets my attention due to the fun story mode, mainly because no other DBZ game has YET to come close to the experience.

9. Batman: Arkham Asylum

I like DC. I like Batman. Naturally a Batman game would interest me. And I loved this game ever since I played the demo. Arkham Asylum really gives you the feeling that you're Batman, beating up foes in the same way the Dark Knight would in the shows and movies with slick combat and stealth. As a kid who used to watch Batman: The Animated Series religiously, a game like this is an absolute godsend.

10. Sonic Heroes

I've seen a lot of love/hate for Sonic Heroes, and in this case it's one of my favorite Sonic games. I dunno if it's just me being a dumb kid and nostalgia just hitting me in the face or what, but I enjoyed Sonic Heroes. The atmosphere really reminds me of the older Sonic games, what with the checkered-patterns on the rocks in Seaside Hill or the round, bright-colored enemies. It's a fun game, IMO, and it's one of my favorite Sonic games.

Ok, well there is no way I could say "this is my all-time fav#1eva" because that changes all the time for me. But I really like cars and racing games in general, so here is my list of that genre:

10) P.O.D. because it was the first video game I ever played besides Pokemon at the time. A demo disc came with my family's first computer in 1997.
9) Midnight Club 2
8) Need for Speed Underground
7) NFSU2
6) NFS: Most Wanted
5) NFS: Carbon
4) Burnout: Paradise
3) Downhill Domination
2) Gran Turismo 4
1) Burnout 3. Over 100 hours logged in SP and still fun. The most fun Burnout ever.

Out of all the racing games I have ever played, I will always remember #'s 1, 2, 3, and 10 the most. The NFS's are mostly filler.

YES. Hitman probably won't be in my Top 10, but I definitely think it's one of the more underrated major studio games of this generation. The other two will definitely be on my list.

I don't know, man, I feel like Blood On the Sand is a more typical modern shooter whereas Bulletproof really captures the essence of Fiddy in a unique way. Both games are absolute essentials, though. You have excellent taste.

This was pretty hard to order actually.

10.Battlefront 2 - Used to play this all the time, might have been higher on the list if it worked on my new computer so I could remember what I loved about it.

9. Stronghold Crusader - I'm pretty sure this is the first RTS I ever played. I had a ton of fun with it years ago but can't seem to enjoy it nearly as much today. Still gets a place on the list because it opened my eyes to a different genre.

8.Pokemon Sapphire - The first portable Pokemon game I ever got. (Played Pokemon Stadium before). This is probably one of my most played games of all time. As much as I like the newer and earlier versions something about the Generation of Pokemon and the secret bases and other cool stuff makes this my favorite. It's probably just the nostalgia though.

7. Banjo-Kazooie - A real solid game, my favorite parts were the boss battles and I still enjoy them to this day. Apparently this game was also my main motivation to learn to read.

6. Skyrim - I liked Morrowind and Oblivion too but Skyrim is my favorite for reasons I can't clearly explain. Maybe it's that the combat is better, maybe it's the dragons, maybe it's the improved dungeons. Although I did like the land of Cyrodiil better than Skyrim.

5. Mario Party 4 - I feel kind of bad putting this higher than Banjo-Kazooie but I usually have much more fun playing multiplayer games than singleplayer (yes I know Banjo-Kazooie has a multiplayer I just didn't really enjoy it). I have had so much fun playing Mario Party with friends and family. The reason I didn't choose a different Mario Party is because I like the boards and minigames best for Mario Party 4.

4. Super Mario World - My favorite Mario game, haven't played it in a while though since my SNES doesn't work anymore.

3. Halo 2 - I've played through the campaign several times and had a lot of fun. I didn't get Xbox Live until recently so I never got to play online but I did play local multiplayer a few times with some friends. In my opinion it was the best Halo with CE being a close second.

2. World of Warcraft - If Pokemon Sapphire was one of my most played games than World of Warcraft is defiantly my most played. I've been playing on and off for years now and love the game. I love the world, the combat and the lore. I have the most fun playing with friends which makes it suck that some of them quit.

1. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic - I love everything about this game, the combat the characters the choices. I also helps that it's Star Wars and Star Wars is my second favorite series losing only to Lord of the Rings. Although I've only played through the game twice I have had so much fun that just typing this makes me want to start all over again. I was considering putting this lower on the list just because I hate the direction that TOR is going but I thought about what I would have made this list before I played TOR and decided to go with that.

10. Mario Kart 64
In my opinion, this game does deserve the spot in my top ten. It really revolutionized the game industry's run-off of wacky races. Before it, the other Mario Kart game(s) didn't really even compare; just flat sheets, to put things in perspective, compared to the not sleek, but still great 3D type of racing that the Mario Kart 64 game put together so well.

9. Final Fantasy 8
Other than Mario Kart, it's one of the very first games I played until my mom yelled at me for playing a rated "T" for teen game when I was only a four-year-old that could easily be influenced by the violence in the game (I'm not really sure if she was expecting me to become a psychopath if I started playing it over and over again). I kind of miss the game to be honest. I never really had got the chance to ever finish it in the first place. I put it at nine on my list because it gave me hope that games could be revolutionary in many ways.

8. Yu-gi-oh: Falsebound Kingdom
I know what some of you may be thinking: "Oh, what the fuck? Are you serious? That game kind of sucked! It barely got good at all with the critics!" Oh yes, God forbid that I pick a game that wasn't reviewed well at all. Most of the critics will say that the graphics aren't good, or that the story is dry and kind of expecting in the very end. Although the story may be expecting and the time it does take is kind of tedious, to say the least about it, it still had that perfectionist side of me glinting on the inside all the time. I always want to go back, play through each of the character's story modes to get the monsters that I didn't manage to get along the way. To top it all off, I was kind of glad that the Yu-gi-oh franchise left its comfort zone of being printed monster cards to being a natural 3D environment. I find myself zooming in a lot, tryiing to admire the detail put into the game's monsters and various eco-wonderlands.

7. The Sims 3
Some people may find it odd that a full-life simulation game is only rated seven on my list, but I find that to be a fair spot for me. My only problem, and probably only my problem, is 1) I always want to use the cheats. Every game I start, I find my entering cheats codes to make my family rich and to make all their needs static, etc. I find it kind of ridiculous of myself, to be honest. 2) Family recreation. Yep. I always tend to go back to my little man-cave inside my head, put in the same muscular guy, same sexy girl with huge breasts, same house---same EVERYTHING. I suppose I'm at fault for this one, but nonetheless, I will still only put it at number seven.

6. Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves
Usually the ending to a great series (although now I'm told that another Sly Cooper game is in the works) is very depressing. It always leaves you just craving for more. For some reason, that's just not the case here. I feel satisfied in full with how it ended. To be honest...I can't really say much more after that. It's just a great game.

5. InFamous
I got this game some Christmas when it had already turned into a red box with the words "Playstations Greatest Hits" printed on the side. At first, I really had no interest in it. I didn't actually pick the game up until February of that next year (I was too busy playing Madden NFL 11 at the time). So here I am, lad-dee-da-dee-dah, running around Empire City, just thinking that it's another damn superhero game. I played along, and boy was I in for a surprise. The game kind of, well, to be honest....it fucked my mind out.

4. Jak 3
Most would argue that the entire Jak and Daxter series was ruined once they tried to make it into a teen, action, kill things with guns and curse words type of game. In my opinion, that just made things so much better. Deep down, it was going through my body of what Jak would sound like since he was introduced as a mute in the first game. Now, it was a hard thing to decide on whether Sly 3 should go here or whether Jak 3 should stay. In the end, I decided this one was best for the spot. Unlike the Sly 3 game, it actually left me wanting more. Where's the rest of the story? It's leaving the glass half-empty for me.

3. Uncharted 2
Ok, so this one, you could kind of see coming. So, past of it's great programming, great artwork, and great storyline, I don't think I really need to explain anything.

2. Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc
It really changed since it's first release back in 199-whatever it was. The good thing about this game series in general is that it's always been 3D as far as I'm concerned. To boot, the new powers that you pick up along the way are also awesome. The simplicity of it is that those powers come in cans that you can find any normal fruit in. The game is simple, but actually very fun.

1. InFamous 2
Not as dark as it's predecessor, it seemed to be even better than the original. New crazy freaks to fight, new powers to go along with your karmic choices, even better than the last game's powers. There's also the whole thing that whenever you start a new game, whether is be good karma, evil karma, or no karmic choices made at all so far, you can import all the awards that you have earned to somehow improve your game experience while playing the game itself. A couple of leviathans here and there, ranging from 8ft to 100ft tall. Of course, the 100ft tall one you'll only get to fight twice throughout the entire game. There's also other conduits that you get to fight along the way. The environment revolving around the new city of New Marais is just spectacular also. The art direction is as smooth as it could possibly be. To top it all off, there's the fact that...well, nah. I'll leave that part for other's who haven't gotten a chance to play the game yet to find out.

Hope you enjoyed reading this.
