So I have this idea (stolen from other forums, of course) to make a big list of our favorite games.

Basically: Everyone posts 10 games ITT until the 30th of June 11:59 PM (Pacific Time, so everyone gets a chance) and then I will sum it all up and make a list out of all nominations and rank the games based on the number of mentions.

So I will just start. For the record: the order doesn't matter. I'll just put it in alphabetical order, because... whatever, I'm an autistic Kraut.

I will limit myself by only mentioning one game per franchise/series, so the list will be a little diverse, because diversity is our strength. ;-)

I will not make this a rule, but I think it will be more interesting.

So here are my 10 nominations. It's really hard to break this down to only 10 games, but I'm just naming ten games that left a massive impact on me and that I'm still going back to after years, so sorry if this is some kind of gay nostalgia posting:

Anno 1404 (released as Dawn of Discovery in the US afaik)
Dark Souls
Deus Ex
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
Fallout 2
Gary Grigsby's War In The East
Gothic 2
Half Life 2
Hearts of Iron II
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow Of Chernobyl

I usually don't @ people that much, but I think in this case high participation would be great, so:
@RedPillStormer @MechaPregnantAnneFrank @Andrew Anglin @Pandadude12345 @Pikajew @Spartacus
(feel free to @ more vidja people)

Depending on how well this is going to work, we can maybe do another list in the future when the forum gets bigger to give the ranking more significance and meaning.

When I think of my personal top 10 games, I think of games I can play over and over without getting bored. So in no particular order:

Grand Theft Auto 3
Resident Evil 4
The original Doom games
Minecraft
King’s Quest series
Far Cry 3
Kerbal Space Program
Bioshock
New Super Mario Bros
Dragon Quest Rocket Slimes

Not saying these are the greatest games of all time, just my personal favorites. Probably most of them are on the list because of nostalgia from when I was a kid

Edit: I know this is cheating but I just thought of another, Resistance 2

Thanks for the ping, Staufer!
Here is my list
Hearts of Iron III
Age of Empires II
Final Fantasy VI GBA
Tetris Attack (SNES)
Pokèmon Fire Red/Leaf Green
Rome Total War
Kirby Superstar Ultra
Universe Sandbox
Super Mario RPG
Mario Kart 7
Quite a few of these games came out before I was born, and others still before I was good at games.

I think I'm the oldest person here.

Most of my favorites are from the SNES era.

>Street Fighter 2 ("Super" was the peak, in my opinion)
>Secret of Mana
>Super Metroid
>Ocarina of Time
>Arkham City
>Resident Evil 4

All the tentpole Mario and Zelda games are great, with the exception being 'Skyward Sword' for Wii, which was okay but the only Zelda game with no replay value.

He asked 10 games though

Everyone posts 10 games ITT
So here are my 10 nominations
Anyway, here are 10 from me, no order

Deus Ex 1
Total War Rome 1
Tony Hawk Underground 1
Hitman 1
Gothic 1
GTA Vice City
Need for Speed Most Wanted (2005)
Crash Bandicoot 3
Tekken 3
Ace Combat 3

I had some indie titles in mind, but I decided to stick to more mainstream ones. Also, I picked them from different genres.

showing my age too but I have to add that to mine. I got it when I bought the Wii for my kids
"Showing my age"....with a game from 2005. No, you're showing MY age!

With RE:4, I was traumatized for years: whenever I heard the sound of a chainsaw or similar motor, the hair on the back of my neck stood up and instinctively did a "quick turnaround" looking for a guy with a burlap mask. Hell, I still get chills thinking of it right now!

it was the breathing sound of Re-generator Zombies for me and well shit as long as we are showing age....my first addiction besides Tetris on gameboy was Tomb Raider 1 on PS1 now that I think of it

Yeah, I just want to limit it, because it gets a little bit too confusing otherwise. And I also want to force people to take a decision. I could include half of Anglin's list into my extended list (and also Gothic 1 from your list, it's basically a flip the coin decision for me to put in Gothic 2 instead), but I think 10 is a good number.

And how I said, this is just a project, maybe we can do another one sometime in the future with different rules, etc.

LOZ Ocarina always seems to make it on top ten lists over the years....
Hey @Staufer after we get a lot of feedback of members' favorites maybe you can post a poll with all the Games mentioned in the thread and everybody chooses up to ten on the selection - if it has that functionality?

We can make other type of lists, for example, best indie games or best hidden gems, etc.

But I think we should first try with the best game list.

I would only do this if we have a draw on the deadline day.

Get ready for some pleb shit tastes.

I'm only thinking of PC games, and ones I have an hour count so high in that I'd be embarrassed to disclose it.
  • Team Fortress 2 - I hat this game
  • Don't Starve Series - charming and addictive
  • Factorio - autism incarnate
  • Diablo 2 - I'm getting autism bumps thinking about it.
  • World of Warcraft (up til WOTLK) - it was good
  • Neverwinter Nights - online was groundbreaking at the time
  • Fallout 2 - you can be a female retard who gets tricked into doing porn, after which, you get a debuff from swallowing too much jizz
  • Stardew Valley - comfy the game. Can put swastika shaped torches in front of the coal burner's house.
  • Minecraft - it's genuinely enjoyable.
  • Divinity Original Sin II - best modern RPG hands down. You can sink 80 hours into it before act III

Don't forget about the slave trading, grave digging, child murdering high IQ maniac porn actor who in the end just wanted to save his village. It was all necessary for the cause!

I loved WC3 online. It was really a good challenge, and it was the first good ladder system that would match you with people who matched your skill. I would play 2 or C&C or any of the classics if it had that matching system.
