View Full Version : Top 10 Games of All Time

Earlier I was looking through various top 10 lists, and I found I came to a similar conclusion for each one of them: I hated it. Some of these lists featured ridiculous games, for example one list in particular had Modern Warfare 2 in slot number 6... as in the sixth best game of all time.

Ridiculous, I say.

Anyway, this got me thinking, and fortunately enough I needed some information for one of my thesis papers in Psychology. What I would like from you, if you choose to participate, is your top 10 list of games of all time, over all consoles including PC/Mac. Now, don't choose a game because everyone else thinks it was good, I'm looking for which games had affected you alone.

A good strategy I have found is to think about all of the platforms you have owned, and all of the games on each of those platforms that you liked the most. Then write down or take a mental note of that you thought of.

My favorite FPS game ever is Perfect Dark. It's such a great game; I go back and play it every now and then.

Asking for a top 10 (as interesting as the question is).. well, it really boggles the mind. Imagining all of the games I have ever played, alone, remains a reminder that I will never be able to nail down such a demanding list. But I will try to post some after I've thought it over a bit.

I was really looking at older games that really made a major impact on the industry. I was going to put HL2 but there was already a HL game there and HL2 just feels to new. Most of the games I listed are from the 90s and 80s that really made a difference and still continue to have something to lend after all these years.

I know what you mean. I excluded HL2 from my list for the same reasons.

At my age there is a lot more than 10. For example 2 that were not mentioned, Pitfall on the 2600 and Lode Runner on both Apple II and C64.

For the record, Valve has 4 titles on my Best of All Time List.

To include some AOE game or not to include it is a tough one imo. I always tend to say aoe sucks, because balance wise its just not great, and the gameplay is always a bit buggy and questionable. BUT, when I count how many hours I've spent on the series, there obviously is something very enjoyable in it. So I don't know, I wish it was just a bit better made, but then again, maybe the crappyness of it actually made it fun...

Just my personal list in no particular order. There are some games I didn't include for certain reasons, even though they are great games or even classics.

Quake: I didn't have internet until year 2000 and I wasn't into online gaming then anyway. For me Quake was all about singleplayer, which imo was inferior to Doom.

Stalker series: Great games, but they have huuuuge amount of bugs even with community fixes.

Halo CE: The first Halo on PC was actually fun game to play. Granted it got quite repetitive after a while (cop&paste), but it certainly wasn't that bad as some people let you know.

L4D series: Ok, these are well polished and well balanced games imo. However, my interest quickly faded away few months after release of L4D and I only got L4D2 because it was on sale. I blame mainly the people who played it; if they werent grieffers, idiots, serious gamers, ragequitters or annoying kids they were mostly just selfish ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s. Nowdays I only ever play it with friends occasionally and even then it's mostly just the same old damn chapter.

Alien Swarm: Great concept and it was free. I probably shouldn't complain, but I think main reason this game has small playerbase like current is because developers counted too much on custom mappers to create the content. There simply wasn't enough content to beging with to keep the interest up until release of the first quality maps.

Fallout 3: This game could been great, but instead it focuses way too much on leveling and perks. Once I hit the level cap, I felt there was no reason to keep exploring the world anymore; I could pretty much buy everything I wanted and my weapons were powerful enough to kill almost everything without any problems.

What do you mean? There are plenty of things to study when it comes to gaming. The sort of game you choose could be representative of the kind of person you are.

Im so tired of seeing Dues Ex and Stalker: SOC on these lists.

Why? They are amazing. I haven't played Deus Ex, but it's safe to say it probably is worthy of the praise. SoC certainly is.

Anyway, my attempt at top 10 (in no particular order):

*Half-Life
*Civilization 2
*F.E.A.R.
*Mass Effect
*Counter-Strike
*Caesar 3
*Half-Life 2
*Call of Duty 1 & UO
*Need for Speed: High Stakes
*GTA: Vice City (PS2 version - only one I played)

I hate how people say CoD is realistic, the ♥♥♥♥ it is, ya falling from 10 stories and not getting hurt is realistic, ya, getting shot in the foot and DIEING from it is totally realistic, 1 guy taking out 30 others without them noticing is totally possible, all im saying is that theres so many flaws with the games realism, yet people still continue to say its realistic.

And though many will argue, it it might be a little to optimistic, its probably possible for humans to get shielded suits and all the crap they have in halo, in the amount of time we have till then, who knows, we may even go farther then that.

A good source of material is the Guinness Book of Video Game Records. I've used stats and figures from it a fair amount in articles I've written. Think you'll find it useful, if not now, then in the future.

I know off-hand that they have a list of the most successful arcade games, but I guess that's not much help here.

In addition to this, I only judge lists and such from reputable magazines that offer good review standards. In your case, I'd suggest Edge magazine (well written and totally unbiased towards platform) and PC Gamer.

But as regards my list... well, it's difficult as I doubt I could put them in any order to a degree. There's gems, great, OK, and bad as far as I'm concerned. My problem is also compounded by having 34 years worth of games in my possession which total several thousands. Kind of spoiled for choice... But nonetheless (in no particular order):

Shadowman (N64, Dreamcast)
Final Fantasy X (PS2)
Final Fantasy VII (PS2)
Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64)
Resident Evil 2 (PS1)
Tomb Raider (Sega Saturn) original
Elite (BBC Micro)
Jet Set Willy (ZX Spectrum)
Half Life 2 + Episodes (PC)
ADVENT [Adventure] (NCR mainframe)

That's nowhere near exhaustive, just off the top of my head, my favourites.

Yes, amen to that. I'm as un-fanboi like as you could reasonably get, with tons of consoles and computers from various years, each with tons of games upon.

But, I've come to realise that the PS2 was incredibly well-represented when it comes to really good games.

Indeed. I find it amazing how many fantastic games were (often exclusively) developed for the PS2.

I thought ps3 would be maybe close to ps2 but what i've seen there seems to be too many games which only looks good but as a games they are mediocre. I'm shocked that psp2 for now won't run ps2 games. If it would it would stop me from playing pc games (except diablo 3) for 3 years at least.

That's a very good point.

Personally, I generally dislike this use of backwards-compatibility in consoles to a certain degree. It's true this might be because I've been put off by a number of people who had moaned about it as if it's a "right" instead of a nice feature.

In any case, I always keep all consoles, computers and games, so maybe my view's tarnished by my own actions here. What I don't accept is the argument of some that keeping older consoles "takes up too much room" which is utter crap. I live in a tiny house (and I do mean tiny), yet I can manage it easily, even to the extremes of my collection of thousands of games.

But I digress.

As you quite rightly say - for whatever reason - the PS3 has as yet been not so well represented by their games. It'd would make a huge amount of sense to offer PS2 compatibility for the PSP2, instantly tapping into a true gold mine of old content, which they could probably end up making a mint on for digital resales of these titles.

Particularly when you also add the situation of the PSP and it's similarly poor representation of games.
