My Favourite Video Games

A list of my favourite games, which I may cover/explain in-depth at some stage.

Interestingly, a game isn't necessarily on my list just because it is 'good' - some of it boils down to nostalgia and me being picky over certain elements. I've sorted this list into categories.

Perhaps we can agree to disagree on some of them??? =D

I've highlighted what I think are some of the outstanding ones in each category.


Outright Favourite Games

Advance Wars (Series as a whole)

Bugs Bunny: Lost in Time****


Dragon Age: Inquisition^

Civilization IV

Diablo II

Dragon Age

Sly Cooper 4: Thieves in Time

Street Fighter (Series as a whole)

Tales of Xillia

Terraria 

Tomb Raider (Series as a whole)


Argh, games agonizingly close to Commendable but I couldn't in good conscience put them there (even though I'd like to)

Final Fantasy X

Final Fantasy XII

Ni No Kuni

Tales of Symphonia

(The Tales Series)

Valkyria Chronicles


Highly Influential Games - Games that were not necessarily fantastic but still (often, positively) influenced the way I thought about games

Ape Escape

Arc the Lad^^ 

Beneath a Steel Sky

Bugs Bunny and Taz: Time Busters

Doom

Duke Nukem 

Final Fantasy VIII

Final Fantasy IX

(The Final Fantasy Series)

Hocus Pocus

Kingdom Hearts Series

Kingsley's Adventure

Megaman X4

Pokemon (Series as a whole)

Super Punch-Out!!

The Simpsons Game

The Spirit Engine

Wolfenstein

+ certain games from the DOS CDs titled '101 Only the Best Games' or '101 Best Games' which I can't remember the names of


Games that I admire from a gameplay point of view and enjoyed playing, but they aren't really my genre and I don't classify them as 'favourites' as such

Bioshock

FIFA series

Halo

Ico

Shadow of the Colossus

Starcraft



*(Although there is an argument to be had that, because Rayman Legends essentially includes Rayman Origins' levels, Rayman Legends is just as good as Rayman Origins -- but I think of the two as separate games)

** Fond childhood memories of playing this on the DOS disc '101 Games'.

*** The second game I thought was rather poor, although some of it was quite good.

**** I feel strange about this one. Though objectively not everyone's favourite, for some reason I really loved this game.

^ Still playing these.

^^ I want to revisit this, as I can't quite recall the details - I was very young when I played this.
