Top 10 Video Games of All Time

Recommended Posts

It's pretty much what the topic says, what're your 10 favorite video games you've ever played. In order, if possible.


I can't think of a real order, it's just so hard!


Donkey Kong 64 for the N64

Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken (released in the US as just "Fire Emblem") for the GBA

Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance for the GCN

Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker for the GCN

Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for the N64

Super Smash Bros. Melee for the GCN

Kirby: The Crystal Shards for the N64

Super Mario World for the GB (it gets on the list for being my first video game)

Pokemon Red & Blue (they're pretty much the same game)

Pokemon Silver and Gold (read above)

But, for the sake that it is a little different, I'll post mine... in no particular order.


1. Golden Eye (N64)

2. Ken Griffey Jr. Baseball (SNES)

3. Cart Racing (PC)

4. Monster Truck Madness (PC)

My few favorite games in no order whatsoever.


Sonic The Hedgehog 2- A classic platform game for the Genesis (and on its zillion ports on those plug-n-play games to Sonic Collections). The game set the standard for a classic Sonic game, fast paced and challenging. Not only that, I liked the Emerald Hill Zone song...


Super Mario Bros. 3- On a par with Super Mario World as the best Mario game. What game would have Mario sporting garb a guy at a Furry convention would wear as a power up. Featured some great level design and a variety of power-ups, SMB3 is a game every Nintendo freak should pick up and play.


Super Smash Bros. Melee- Probably the best cartoony fighting game ever made. This game is addicting like crack and had some great graphics showing off the Gamecube's power. This game added a LOT more features, modes, and other Nintendo nicknacks, easily blowing the original N64 version out of the water. Thank god for the Revolution sequel with Online play . But it still remains in my top 10.


Rush 2: Extreme Racing USA- If you wanted a serious street racing game for the N64... this was the Burnout of the N64. This was way back when the Rush racing series was realistic and not licensed with a "Pimp My Ride/West Coast Customs" endorsement or sent 50 years into the future. No, instead, this game was all street racing across various tracks in the US. It also had a great multiplayer mode with a stunt course that was always fun. Regardless, I wish more people picked up this game for the N64.


Pokemon Gold and Silver- Alright, I admit, I was one of those brainwashed 10 year olds 6 years ago that picked up this game. I remembered that moment where I went to Wal-Mart on the morning of October 15th, 2000. Ended up getting the first copy of the game sold and became a pocket favorite of mine. Although I have no interest in this stupid thing anymore, I had to admit, I liked those games.


Super Mario World- Tied with SMB3 for best Mario title in my opinion. This was an epic Mario game that had quite a few hard spots such as the Bowser boss battle, Extra levels, and finding out how to get the hell out of Forest of Illusion. A great Mario game and marks the first appearance of everybody's favorite dinosaur, Yoshi.

No specific order:


1. Super Monkey Ball (1 + 2): Both games are great. You've got Monkeys, you've got balls, you can't go wrong!


2. WarioWare. I love all variations (GBA, GC, Twisted, Touched), but my vote goes to the GC version for its great party games.


3. Super Mario Bros. 3: When I first saw "The Wizard" I knew that this was THE game. When I finally played it, I wasn't disappointed. You gotta love the Frog Suit and the Hammer Bros. Suit.


4- Final Fantasy 2 (US): Great story, great characters, and I was a happy boy when Tellah died.


5- Super Smash Brothers Melee: Great battles, great variety of characters.


6- Tetris: Best puzzle game ever!


7- Meteos: Best puzzle game since Tetris!


8. The Legend of Zelda: First game I played that went beyond your normal structure of playing straight through levels. Opened up my eyes to what games could do.


9. Mario Kart 64: I love all Mario Karts, but 64 is my favorite. DS is great also, and I am also a big fan of Double dash.




(List of current games I'm playing all of which are fantastic, and all of which are for the Nintendo DS: Animal Crossing: Wild World, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, and Trauma Center: Under the Knife.)


Obviously I'm a big fan of Nintendo and retro games, but there is my list.

You mean the ones you had to look down upon?


Yeah, those. We in fact, have of them actually downstairs in our basement!


It's one of the old Tempest game-tables. Yowsa!


I can't name 10 cause I just don't know, no more. But my fave and extra special one used to be Q-Bert. And I could run into any one of those machines across the US and usually make myself the new 'top scorer' on those things, lol. Did it in Chicago, New Orleans, New York, LA... ah memories.
