Since I don't have the large, or varied, a collection of video games, I have a limited ability to put together the kind of lists commonly found on Gamespot. But since the system has berated me for years for not blogging enough, I thought Id give it a shot.
1. The 11th Hour: Its old, its DOS, and its a bit overwrought, but its still the most fun I ever had playing a video game.
2. SimCity3000: I cant even count how many hundreds of hours Ive spent building cities, laying roads and power lines, and downloading replacement buildings for my skyscrapers.
3. Sid Meier's Pirates!: despite all its its flaws, especially those of repetition, this game made an entire baseball off-season pass almost overnight.
4. The Bards Tale: snarky, humorous, and basic dungeon crawling entertainment. Great voice work.
5. Silent Hill 2: my first experience with the Silent Hill franchise was an eye opener. Never before had I found the immersive, frightening experience found in this game.
6. MediEvil: my first non Crash Bandicoot type video game for PlayStation, and the beginning of an era. Fun, challenging, and with just enough edge to make it cool.
7. The Godfather: they took one of the greatest movies and turned out a great game. Its been years, but Im pretty sure I could still navigate my way from Little Italy to the Little Italy Industrial Park with only a few backtracks to find my way.
8. Pitfall-The Lost Expedition: I barely remember it, but I do remember the quick moving story, the complex but rewarding searches, and the complex but ultimately learnable techniques it took to solve this one.
9. Baldur's Gate-Dark Alliance 2: building custom weapons. The possibilities actually make it pleasant to slog through the four millionth mile of cave crawl.
10. Test Drive 5: muscle cars. Im sure it wasn't the best driving game out there at the time, but racing muscle cars that sound like they have a nine-inch cam lobe is really satisfying.
