What are your 5 favorite video games of all time?

Gonna bend the rules a little and list 6 of both SP and MP. Some may be on the list partly because of nostalgia factor...


The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds / A Link to the Past

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Pokemon Red


Super Mario 64

Half-Life 2


Halo Custom Editon

Quake 3 CPMA


​Battlefield 2

Tony Hawks Skateboarding (Pro Skater)

Counter-Strike: Source

Not in any order:

Legend of Zelda Ocarina of time, Star wars battlefront 2, Halo 3, super smash bros melee, Ninja gaiden. 

honorable mentions: Pokemon Red and Silver, metal slug, star wars republic commando, dungeon defenders, majors mask,  soul caliber 2, day of reckoning. 

1-5: Halo 4

1) Super smash bros melee, seriously i loved this game as a kid and now i'm older i'm still making an effort to get better and hopefully get into the competitive scene a little bit after watching the smash documentary a year or 2 ago (which i would highly reccommend doing). There's an absolutely obscene amount of depth and the skill gap is super high considering how quickly and accurately you need to press buttons.

2)Halo 3 - definitely the single video game i've played most. I have no idea what the stats are but it wouldn't surprise me at all if i've got a couple of months game time for good ol' h3. The multiplayer is something else - i feel like fucking superman when i'm properly zoned in to montage mode and destroying all teh n00bz

3) Pokemon crystal - Best pokemon game ever full stop.The music, the region, the actual pokemon themselves and if all that wasn't enough you can even go back and do kanto aswell! also the fact that the sprites moved when you initially sent them out blew my mind as a young child, that shit didn't make a return until like 5 years later in pokemon emerald and even then it wasn't as good.

4)Pokemon Colosseum - Playing pokemon on console in 3d was sososososo cool back when this came out. Damn i just love the nintendo gamecube way too much.

5) Half life 2 (and all the episodes) - idk i was kinda struggling to pick out a 5th game that stands out as much as the above to me. I've recently replayed half life 2 and it's forsure one of the games that's scared me the most. The headcrabs really genuinely creep me out, they make me jump and shit when they jump for your face and those big zombies with the 3 black headcrabs on them are horrific, they always take me by surprise. Idk half life 2 is just an all round really solid and engrossing singleplayer game.

Honourable mentions go to: Pokemon ruby, metal gear solid 1, Crash 3: Warped, all the spyro games for ps1, dungeon keeper for pc (check it out it's actually fucking sick), Crash team racing, animal crossing wild world and Call of Duty 5 and black ops 1 zombies, oblivion

in no order

others: Tony Hawk's Project 8, Wii Sports, Mario Kart Wii, Simpson's Hit and Run

  1. Halo 3
  2. CS:GO
  3. Halo: Reach (MLG v7 settings)
  4. CoD MW or MW2 (can't pick one and loved them both, campaign in MW was great)
  5. League of Legends

Hard to bring it down to just 5. This list will probably be what had the biggest influence over me, not necessarily my absolute favorite as I don't think I can narrow it down.

  • Halo CE - Perfect Dark and GoldenEye 007 were the set up games for this long road that Halo has brought me down. Probably the biggest influence in why gaming is my biggest hobby.
  •  Hotline Miami 2 - Hard to put into words how this game makes me feel. The music pumps you up and you just go to work. Killing people, dying, restarting and going again. The music is absolutely fantastic and just puts you in this trance while playing the game. Not to mention that if you can stick with the story line it makes for a pretty interesting ride.
  •  Elder Scroll III: Morrowind - Fable probably influenced a lot of why I got into this game. My first initial runs were just fine tuning my custom character and getting the name right. I eventually just put the game down and didn't finish it for years. When I did finish the main story line and mostly everything else I easily put in 120+ hours into the game. I was addicted with the Nerevar and Nerevarine that I had to finish everything I possibly could.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - Its a classic, always will be, even if there are better ones, none compare to me just from the nostalgia and memories.
  • Final Fantasy VII - More of less the same as LoZ: OoT. My first FF. I became one of those VII fanboys and wouldn't let go. I eventually came to my senses and realized that VI is probably better.
