Okay, if we're going to be serious, I already stated my favorites previously.

On 6/2/2016 at 5:51 PM, Ben said:

Top 5 Favorite Games? Alright, in no particular order:

Age of Empires 2
I'm pretty big on RTS games, and this one is just a classic. In many ways, it (Along with Starcraft) set the gold standard for years. Age of Empires 3 is alright, but nothing beats 2. I'm not holding my breath for a 4th.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II
In addition to its massive replay value, it has one of the best stories of any game I've ever played. It really explores a lot of aspects of the Star Wars universe and The Force that haven't necessarily been addressed before. I could go on about this, but I'll save that for another time.

Ocarina of Time
Do I really need to explain this one? It's one of the best games ever made, both for its story and gameplay. Pretty much every 3D Zelda game since Ocarina of Time has tried to recapture some of its success. Also... (points at avatar).

Rise of Nations
An RTS game that didn't register on most people's radars, from what I can tell. I really don't know what to say about this, other than the fact that I've logged many hours into it over the years, and that it's still fun for me. Its a good RTS to pick up and play if you're not a fan of micromanaging resources.

Goldeneye
I admit that I didn't grow up with this game like most other people, but I still find it really fun. Beating Aztec on 00 Agent remains my greatest gaming achievement, for whatever that's worth.

Honorable mentions include Super Mario 64, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic I, Star Wars Battlefront 2, Call of Duty 4, and Fire Emblem 7, because others reminded me about it.


I guess if I had to pick an absolute favorite, it'd be Knights of the Old Republic 2, with Ocarina of Time being a very close 2nd.

Heck yeah, KOTOR II could've been *by far* my favorite game of all time had it not been rushed with, what, tens of hours of content cut out, err whatever it was? Still an overlooked gem that will always be in my top ten favorite games. Like, I mean, the gameplay's so much more refined, the story's easily just as good despite what people say (sans the ending, man that upset me), and the new features are all fantastic. Because it was so rushed, though, I have to give the crown of favorite game to KOTOR I; other favorites: SM64, DKC 1, Melee, Super Mario World, Star Fox 64, most of the Star Wars: Dark Forces series (which includes the Jedi Knight games), Viewtiful Joe,  and AoE 2 are all close behind. You have good taste in games, Ben.

I came to appreciate Knights of the Old Republic 2 (or at least, what it was supposed to be) a lot more after I read a screenshot Let's Play that showed and referred to a lot of cut content. It really could have been amazing.

Jedi Outcast is also one of my favorite games. Not necessarily Top 10, but I just love the lightsaber combat system in it, even though Academy refined it. I should probably pick the latter up on Steam sometime soon, but I have no idea if a lot of people are still into its multiplayer.

Well, since now everybody is taking the thread seriously, might as well making an actual contribution.

  • Zoo Tycoon: it's an absolute classic in every sense of the word. Easy learning curve, extremely flexible in terms of designing your own zoo, a whole lot of fun throughout the zoo's life cycle, and mods, lots of mods. If there's anything worth complaining is the terrain editor;
  • Streets of Rage 2: unanimously considered the best beat 'em up of all time, no question about it;
  • Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater: being the only Metal Gear I've finished to date, I have no choice but to put it on my favorites because it's simply greatly crafted;
  • Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3: Yes, I know, the GBA version is quite dumbed down, specially when they added Yoshi's sound effects from Yoshi's Story, but that doesn't turn down a fantastic platformer. The Baby Mario gimmick is hated by everyone, but honestly, I think it what makes this game so great, because the sense of urgency is there and it ramps up the difficulty in a mildly easy game;
  • Beyond Good & Evil: Michel Ancel's masterpiece, even moreso than Rayman 2. Great atmosphere, great music, a lot of variety on the gameplay, the only downside being not able to fully control Pey'j and Double H, because that would make some fun co-op, as well the cliffhanger at the end. I will eagerly await for the sequel;
  • World of Goo: great puzzle, fun to make speedruns, very Tim Burton-esque presentation, all in all a great gem. I still need to go back to my mod which I left unfinished some years ago;
  • Rock of Ages: didn't expect to love this game when I got it as a gift. Tough as nails on the later levels, but the great presentation and humor captivates me and helped me with progressing on the game. Plus, Saturn is the greatest final boss period;
  • Space Race: say whatever you will about Space Race. I love this game after all these years and I cannot seem to get tired of it, not one bit;

  • Pokemon Emerald: One of my first video games I've played.
  • SimCity 4: The best (and last good) PC SimCity game.
  • SimCity Creator DS: Great concept, and I like how your city evolves over the age periods. Different age perionds, different playstyles and events.
  • Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate: My first Monster Hunter game, and I enjoyed quite a bit from that. MHGen felt a bit short but I hope MHXX adds more.
  • Super Smash Bros. Brawl: Like the story mode. Also like Snake, one of my favorite Smash characters.

Mega Man X. Easy choice.

Honorable mention goes to Metal Gear Rising. If that still holds up as a favorite several years from now it just might take first place.

Nine months later and my list continues to be the same, though I'd probably add M.D.K. to it because man, the game's 20 years old and for an early 3D game it still holds up greatly.

No fooling myself anymore. Kingdom Hearts is my all-time favorite game. I got it for Christmas back in 2002 along with my Playstation 2. In fact, Kingdom Hearts was the first Playstation 2 game I ever played - so these rose-tinted glasses are stuck on. 

I'm a much bigger fan of the first game than the series as a whole. Chain of Memories and II were enormous disappoints for me, and as for later titles, 368/2 Days is the one I find as compelling as the first Kingdom Hearts.
