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^

Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy***

Rayman Origins*

The Last of Us 


The Talos Principle

Highly Commendable (~9 - 9.5 out of 10)

Batman: Arkham Asylum

Batman: Arkham City

Crash Bandicoot (Series as whole)

Crash Team Racing

Donkey Kong 2

Rayman Legends*

Sid & Al's Incredible Toons**

The Elder Scrolls (Series as a whole)

Tomba!

Uncharted (Series as a whole)


Commendable (~8.5 - 9 out of 10)

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.

  5. As an enthusiastic retro-gamer, for a significant long time I've been especially intrigued by the historical backdrop of video games. https://twitchviral.com/

  6. So games can help you develop muscle memory and psyche memory. In the event that you can store things in game you need to recall where you put it, or then again in the event that you need a formula to make something you may recollect the formula, or perhaps you recollect an insight regarding something significant, or possibly you recall the way through a labyrinth or the way home.
