Official Video Game thread.
Ya, discuss XBOX 360, PS3, Wii, Handhelds, old systems and whatever you want in here...
I figured since we have threads dedicated to just one system, why not do one for video games in general?
I'll start it off by giving my top 10 favorite games of all time.
1. Final Fantasy 7 - Best story of any game I've played, great villain and extremely fun, I've replayed it a few times.
2. Ultima Online - Yes I know this may make some of you go what the hell? I grew up playing this game with my cousins and had some of the funnest times playing this game. The game used to be amazing, but they completely wrecked it. If I were to say this game would even be top 100 all time I would be crazy, but when it comes to the amount of fun I had playing this, it could have easily been #1 on my list.
3. Zelda OOT - N64 classic, the best game for the N64 in my opinion and easily the best Zelda game ever. I remember how much hype this game had, and it came out 2 day before my birthday and thats what I got... I was young when this came out so things like the water temple confused the hell out of me, but it was still extremely fun.
4. Socom 2 - This game was the most fun I have had on the playstation 2 and playing a first/third person shooter. The game was fun and in its own way frustrating as hell. It was the first time I played a game that had a headset to communicate with (I played counter-strike but never used it.) It was different and brought a whole new aspect to playing shooters online for me. Not to mention, it was the first time I really used the PS2 online.
5. Counter-Strike - This game set the standards for PC FPS. Another one of those games I grew up playing with my cousins, easily one of the funnest times I've had playing a game.
6. Starcraft - Everyone has played this and knows why its on this list... If you haven't played this then what the hell.
7. Super Mario RPG - Yeah yeah, not the mario game most would expect to see up here on this list, but it is my favorite game from the Super Nintendo.
8. Halo Series - I can't pinpoint which one I should put here, but I feel like that the amount of fun I have had playing this game with friends earns its spot here... It's a great series and the best console FPS ever.
9. Final Fantasy 10 - Great game, plenty of fun. The story was great and the sphere grid system was awesome, I really enjoyed this game and its my favorite PS2 RPG.
10. Warcraft 3 - Another RTS game that was amazing. This game hasn't really aged at all, its the last RTS that Blizzard has released and it has a large community. Not to mention that they have done a good job with an expansion and releasing new content such as tavern heroes online.
Obviously there are many game I could have put in here, and there are many games that I enjoyed, just none as good as these 10 to me.
