I'll admit to despising the Call of Duty series now, but back in middle school and high school I spent hundreds of hours playing them.

 

My rankings for the games I've played a lot:

1) Modern Warfare

2) Modern Warfare 2

3) Black Ops

4) WaW

 

MW was a perfectly balanced masterpiece.  It's up there with Counter Strike, the fps of my childhood and TF2, the fps of my manhood.

Haven't played it, is that the newest one? I haven't played them since Black Ops 2

 

Really? That game had the best maps IMO. Plus the kill streaks were still the normal 3-5-7 and not the 3-4-5-6-22-85 they have now 

I agree that the maps were fun.  Half the fun came with how broken they were.  I have fond memories of glitching around them in private matches with my friends.  The huge ones were also great for games of hide and seek.  But as far as being good maps for competitive matches? No way.  They were designed to benefit camping and generally drove me mad.

 

WaW was the least balanced of them all.  The guns you unlocked at level 65 were significantly better than the guns you started with.  Bouncing betties were absurdly OP.  The vehicles were a joke.  I remember dudes in tanks regularly getting 20+ kill streaks.  Just hated that game.

I hated the glitches, what I did like was the space. I don't like camping (who does?) but I love how many places there were to slink around in those maps. There was so much cover, different ways around the maps, etc. The maps now are just so small and combine that with COD's tendency to make every map kind of left (cover)-forward (giant open space here)-right (cover), they get boring and predictable. I do remember the WaW gun unlocking being a bitch though, and bouncing betties blew.

 

MW2 was awesome, definitely at the tops of my list.

 

Games I'm playing now; A) Rome Total War II, empire edition.

                                       B) NHL 2015

 

I can't recommend Rome 2 enough. If you've ever played AOE, it's like that but much, much more detailed economically, politically, and the battle sequences are unrivaled in any strategy game.

 

I like NHL15 a lot, mostly because this is the first year I have an EASHL player/team. Definitely the saving grace for that game

Not a big FPS fan.  When I do play them, it's almost never war themed.  Give me Team Fortress 2 or about any arena shooter over CoD.

1. Jak 3 for PS2
2. Zelda: Ocarina of Time for N64

Good man Tank.

 

Never played Skyward Sword, but Twilight Princess was probably my favorite game I've ever played. Hated Wind Waker, couldn't stand the graphics. They have a new one coming out soon that is supposed to be a free world game to rival Skyrim, I kinda wanna get a wii u just to play it.

I was shocked at how great Skyward Sword was. Incredible gaming experience and fun open-world style that Nintendo perfected with Zelda. Excited about the Zelda Netflix series that's in the works.

I might show my age a little.

 

1) Command and Conquer: Red Alert

2) Half Life, including mods Team Fortress Classic and Firearms

3) Battlefield 1942, including mod Desert Combat

4) Goldeneye

5) Grand Theft Auto V

6) Doom II

7) Grand Theft Auto I

8) Papyrus' NASCAR Racing

9 a & b) C&C: Red Alert 2 and C&C: Generals

10) Duke Nukem 3D

11) Ivan "Iron Man" Stewart's Super Off Road (Arcade)

12) NHL '97

13) Terminator 2 (Arcade)

 

To illustrate my top choice, imagine being 12 years old.  Internet was dial up.  DVDs didn't exist.  Concordantly, videos playing a computer monitor were rare.  Even sounds were limited to cheapo sound effects. Soundtracks to games were mostly the quality of an SNES, 8 bit audio (I'm looking at you, Doom II).

 

You install the game in DOS, then the cold open starts.  Video?  The story of eliminating Hitler via time machine unfolds.  Your eyes widen, your breathing quickens, your knuckles whiten, then the award-winning audio and industrial metal soundtrack blows your hair back as ###### blows up on screen.  I'm surprised I didn't fall out of my chair and piss myself.

 

 

Then you spend years playing the greatest real time strategy game of the era.

Command and Conquer was awesome! We had that and AOE on our first computer, and as kids they were the greatest games ever. You're probably 3-4 years older than me IKP, which is my brother's age (26?) so I grew up watching/learning all of those games with him. I loved the tesla coils in that game, coolest part.

 

Guess I should make a list too

 

1) Super Smash Bros (N64)

2) Pokemon: Red/Blue

3) Zelda: Twilight Princess

4) Zelda Ocarina of Time

5) Age of Empires (rate them all the same, AOE 3 was my favorite though, had the best online)

6) Goldeneye

7) COD 4

8) NHL 14

9) Rome Total war: 2

10) COD MWF 2

 

Special mention to Mario Kart for a great party game (if you've never played Beerio Kart/ Drink-and-Drive, it's a great party game)


I'll throw Soul Calibur II in that list too. I spent 4 months mowing lawns to buy that game; it was the first game I ever bought with money I earned, and it was worth every penny. Bought it originally because Link was in the game, such a cool character to play with too

I've never fully understood the craze over the newer Zelda games. Give me the original any day. The snes one was good too, but I never actually played that until it was at least ten years old.

Skyward Sword is the only modern one I cared for at all, and I LOVED it.

 

 

I still haven't gotten around to The Last of Us. Maybe because I'm still mad that it was a ripoff of their original ideas on Jak 4.

Have been playing rpg's since the original NES. Don't have a reason why, but I've never played FFVI. Heard it's incredible. Maybe I'll pick it up for the Wii. In my opinion, the best rpg is Chrono Trigger. Honestly cannot tell you how many times I've gone through it. A true must play for rpg fans.

You gotta play The Last of Us. Do you have a PS4? If so, pick up the remastered version. The gameplay/story is addicting. One of those games you pick up and lose track of time when playing. And when you finally finish the game you just don't want it to be over.

I do have a PS4. I am torn on buying too many games that end once you finish the story. Is it open world at all? That's why I love Jak 3 so much. If there was a remastered Jak 3 for PS4 I would still be playing it.

Half Life, Half Life 2, episodes, yadda yadda

Portal and Portal 2

Team Fortress 2

Minecraft

CoD 4

GTA: Vice City and GTA: 3 (Vice is best)

Deus Ex, and Deus Ex Human Revolution

Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 3 (NV is so much better)

SSX Tricky

Mass Effect (just the first one)

EV Nova

Diablo II

The Sims (just the first one)

 

 

Childhood inclusions:

Ocarina, Wind Waker, and Majorah's Mask.  I love them all equally.  I've had a lot of fun with TP and Skyward Sword, but I still haven't played through either of them all the way through.

Goldeneye

Counter Strike

Mario 64 (galaxy 1 and 2 are both awesome as well), Mario 2, Mario 3, Mario World, Super Mario Bros Wii (particularly awesome for my family because we are four siblings)

Super Smash Bros.  I like the N64 version most, then GC, then Wii.

Mario Kart.  The N64 was the version of my childhood.  The GC was the version of my physics class in high school (8 way races!).  The Wii version is awesome and the most readily available these days.

Adventure Island

1080 Snowboarding

 

Games in bold have stolen a part of my soul.

 

Right now I'm mostly playing Hearthstone and New Vegas.  Just recently freshly modded New Vegas, and am excited to start some new characters.  I'm contemplating a no kill run.


And props to sizzle for Wii bowling.  Good call.

There's a whole bunch of other games, I go back to the Atari 800xl days, but felt compelled to stay somewhat recent.

These days it takes me a while to get through a game. I'm still playing Skyrim and Far Cry 3. It didn't take long to go through Dishonored, though, and I'm an every-nook-and-cranny guy.

At least this way the games I want to play next are always cheap on Steam, unlike the games my kids like to play.

Dishonored was so good.  And so disappointing.  It's just like Bethesda to make a beautiful game that's fun to play with terrible voice acting and little to no soul.  Really liked the Daud character. though.  The DLC where you played as him was awesome.  

 

I tried to get into Skyrim three seperate times now.  The role playing aspect of the game is pretty shallow, and all the quests basically revolve around going to a dungeon and killing mooks.  The dialogue is mind-numbingly bad and rarely offers you anything clever to say.  The game plays well, though.  Slinking through a dungeon with a bow, or dashing around smashing things with a hammer are equally rewarding.  I'm not crazy about the magic system.  And it's beautiful, of course.  Oh, Bethesda.

Agreed.  Chrono Trigger is my all time favorite RPG.  The SNES was amazing for RPGs.  Chrono Trigger, FF 4-6, Illusion of Gaia, Secret of Mana, Earthbound, Super Mario RPG, Lufia 1 and 2, Terranigma.... So many good ones.

I do have a PS4. I am torn on buying too many games that end once you finish the story. Is it open world at all? That's why I love Jak 3 so much. If there was a remastered Jak 3 for PS4 I would still be playing it.

Unfortunately Remastered isn't open world. But the game play is great, and the story is fantastic. The way the relationship between the two main character evolves is gripping....rather emotional. Also does an incredible job of showing what would life may be like if mankind were to forced into anarchy. Picture The Walking Dead. 

 

If you loved Chrono Trigger, when you play FFVI, you will cry for not playing it sooner. It is 16-bit perfection.

 

Ok, I'm sold. Thanks changing my weekend plans! ha ha

 How did I forget to mention Secret of Mana?! One of my all time favs. It's unfortunate Squaresoft is well....no longer Squaresoft. Yes, they did merge w/ Enix to form SquareEnix, but they haven't delivered a game that is on par w/ ones made in the SNES era. As a side note, a PS3 rpg I really enjoyed was Ni No Kuni. Sadly, turn based games have lost popularity. Games like Ni No Kuni are now few are far between. It's a must play if you're in to turn based rpgs.

1: Goldeneye 64


I can't count the number of nights that were wasted during college on this game. I don't think anything was funnier than doing a 4 person match with one hit kills and nothing but slappers. We always called that moment when you're circling each other trying to land the kill shot the "circle of death". That with slappers was pure comedy gold. Ok, it was actually funnier when you did have guns but one person was out of bullets.
 

6: Ken Griffey Jr. Slugfest



Was this also a N64 game? I remember a couple different Griffey games over the years, but my friend and I had a ton of fun with the N64 one. We'd have a fantasy draft and play out a 4 team tournament.

I can't count the number of nights that were wasted during college on this game. I don't think anything was funnier than doing a 4 person match with one hit kills and nothing but slappers. We always called that moment when you're circling each other trying to land the kill shot the "circle of death". That with slappers was pure comedy gold. Ok, it was actually funnier when you did have guns but one person was out of bullets.



Was this also a N64 game? I remember a couple different Griffey games over the years, but my friend and I had a ton of fun with the N64 one. We'd have a fantasy draft and play out a 4 team tournament.


Goldeneye has held up action-wise as well. It's sitting in my N64 at my apartment ready to go.

I miss that game so much. I may have to steal that from you.

Definitely in my top ten, but that development team (It was mostly the same guys) achieved perfection in VI. CT was merely All-Time Great.


As a side note, I think IV was my favorite, not nearly as complete as VI gameplay-wise, but the story was so strong.
