X. YOU GET ONE POST IN THIS THREAD, MAKE IT COUNT.
0. Post your top 20 list below.
1. They do not have to be in order.
2. You can, if you REALLY FEEL THE NEED TO VALIDATE YOUR OWN OPINION (psychos), post a brief paragraph.
3. All non top-twenty posts will be deleted.
4. All double posts will be deleted.
5. You can edit your list as the week goes on, but don't make little quips about shit and edit other stuff.
6. I'm going to cross-reference each list and come up with some sort of ultimate list.
7. This is all personal opinion. Fuck the industry, fuck the developers, your opinion. Top 20. If you love Madden 96, post Madden 96.
8. A followup thread will be made saturday (12/01/07) to talk about the lists.

- RULES OF THE LIST -
1. One entry from each series. (Example: Mega Man 2 OR 3. Not both)
2. Try to post the Developer.
3. If you can find it (mobygames.com, gamefaqs.com, ign.com), post the release year (that being the release year for America, sorry everyone else, these numbers are easier to find)
4. Post the system (abbreviations: NES, SNES, GEN, SMS, PS, PS2, PS3, N64, etc.)
5. Arcade systems are fair game (abbreviations: NG, NAOMI, STV, etc.)

-FORMAT OF THE LIST - (Important since Order does not matter)

GAME NAME - DEVELOPER - SYSTEM - YEAR

Example:
Super Mario World - Nintendo Co., Ltd. - SNES - 1990

Have fun. Will post mine after much thought.

EDIT: CHANGED DATE. LONGER = BETTER. YEAR END THING, OK.
EDIT2: USE SYSTEM16.COM TO DO ARCADE SEARCHES.
EDIT3: If you put more than 1 game in a series on the list, I will delete one arbitrarily. Pick ONE from each series.

EDIT 4: ORANGE BOX IS A NOT A FUCKING GAME. PORTAL IS A GAME, TEAM FORTRESS 2 IS A GAME, AND EPISODE 2 IS A GAME. ORANGE BOX IS NOT A GAME.

This was fun to think over. Here's my initial list. I haven't played nearly as many games as some of you and only play other peoples' consoles, so my list is skewed a bit in the PC direction.  smiley
In no particular order.

1.  Descent 2 - Interplay Productions - PC - 1996 (6DoF and true 3D!)
2.  Homeworld - Relic Entertainment - PC - 1999 (First truly 3D RTS as far as I know)
3.  Ground Control - Massive Entertainment - PC - 2000 (Broke from the resource-based system common to RTS)
4.  Half-Life 2 - Valve Corporation - PC - 2004 (Great storytelling.)
5.  Civilization 4 - Firaxis Games - PC - 2005 (2 was awesome but 4 is awesomer)
6.  Katamari Damacy - Namco - PS2 - 2004 (Innovative and fun as hell)
7.  Metal Gear Solid - Konami Computer Entertainment - PS - 1998 (Good storytelling and unique gameplay)
8.  Vagrant Story - Square - PS - 2000 (Pretty revolutionary RPG for the Playstation era)
9.  Final Fantasy Tactics - Square - PS - 1997 (Probably not the first but definitely one of the best tile-based strategy RPGs)
10. Ultima Online - Origin Systems - PC - 1997
11. Super Mario RPG - Square - SNES - 1996 (Great mix of action and turn-based battle mechanisms, as well as story)
12. Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - Nintendo - N64 - 1998
13. Mechwarrior 2 - Activision - PC - 1995
14. Super Smash Bros. Melee - HAL Laboratory - GC - 2001
15. Guitar Hero 2 - Harmonix Music Systems - PS2 - 2006
16. Age of Empires 2 - Ensemble Studios - PC - 1999 (The RTS that got me hooked on RTS)
17. Portal - Valve Corporation - PC - 2007
18. Gears of War - Epic Games - 360 - 2006 (Great gameplay, polish, good storytelling, oh and very shiny)
19. Dawn of War - Relic Entertainment - PC - 2004 (Another break from traditional resources, with a lot of thought thrown into gameplay details and graphics)
20. Shadow of the Colossus - Team Ico - PS2 - 2005

Wikipedia is a good place to look for developer and date published as well as the ones schild listed.
[edit] Lots of sequels. D:
[edit2] Portal > PoP. D'oh.

The only one per series is kind of a silly rule. Maybe my two favorite games are from the same series? What is the logic behind that rule? But whatever, here we go:

1. Super Mario Brothers 3 - Nintendo - NES
2. Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past - Nintendo - SNES
3. Street Fighter 2: Hyper Fighting - Capcom - CPS1
4. Baseball Stars - SNK (?) - NES
5. Super 2020 Baseball - SNK(?) - NG
6. 'Nam 75 - SNK - NG
7. Ninja Gaiden - Tecmo - NES
8. Final Fantasy IV - Square - SNES
9. X-Men: Children of the Atom - Capcom - CPS2
10. Ogre Battle - Quest - SNES
11. Tactics Ogre - Quest - SNES
12. Earthlight - Hudson - SFC (Super Famicom)
13. Super Metroid - Nintendo - SNES
14. Resident Evil 4-  Capcom - Wii
15. Civilization - ?? - PC
16. Master of Orion 2 - ?? - PC
17. Star Control 2 - ?? - PC
18. Contra 3; The Alien Wars - Konami - SNES
19. (Super) Castlevania 4 - Konami - SNES
20. F-Zero X - Nintendo - N64

Some random notes: My list is heavily skewed in favor of old titles, some of that is nostalgia, some of it is that I played more games back then, but I also still enjoy these games! For example Super Baseball 2020 is like my ultimate comfort food game, I can play that any time and have fun. Also I consider the Ogre Battle games not part of the same series because the gameplay is totally different, to me the Ogre Battle and Tactics Ogre games are two separate lines. I don't have any Genesis or PS2 games on my list, which is kind of surprising to me. Earthlight is a Super Famicom game, never came out in the US. A top 50 might be more interesting because about half my list is staple games that I'm sure will be repeated. A top 50 would certainly include some Genesis and PS2 games.

Further proof that Italians have suspect taste in games.

Brief disclaimer: The first ten positions are accurately in order of preference. From 10 to 20 it pretty much blends, to me.

I included Ultima Online because it belongs to a pretty much unique genre compared to the traditional single-player experience, so I thought it wouldn't be counted alongside Underworld II.
----------------

1. Ultima Underworld II: Labyrinth of Worlds - Looking Glass Technologies - PC - 1993
2. Planescape: Torment - Black Isle Studios - PC - 1999
3. Deus Ex - Ion Storm Inc. - PC - 2000

7. Dungeon Master - FTL Games - Atari ST - 1987
8. Gabriel Knight 3: Blood of the Sacred, Blood of the Damned - Sierra On-Line - PC - 2000
9. Pools of Darkness - SSI - PC - 1991
10. Kick Off 2 - Dino Dini and ANCO - Atari ST - 1990

11. Championship Manager '01-'02 - Sports Interactive - PC - 2001
12. Wonderboy - Escape/Sega - Arcade - 1986
13. Virtua Tennis 2 - Hitmaker -  Dreamcast - 2001
14. Punch-Out !! - Nintendo - Arcade - 1984

17. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: The Graphic Adventure - Lucasfilm Games - Atari ST - 1989
18. Seven Gates of Jambala - The Care Bears - Atari ST - 1990
19. Doom - Id Software - PC - 1993
20. The Longest Journey - Funcom - PC - 2000

EDIT: now in a more corporate, soul-less style ! ;)
EDIT 2: Included Wing Commander III at n.4. Last time list get edited, I promise :P
EDIT 3: Only changed the platform where I played the game on, as opposed to listing all the platform on which the game was released. Abbreviations for Origin Systems Inc. and Strategic Simulations Inc.

I doubt I can really recall my top 20 accurately in one go and I'm sure I'll come to rue my lack of an edit button mere moments after posting this.  Even my attempts to bubble-sort them in the top 20 failed when I realized I couldn't truly quantify in which way they were the best.

Edit Only one per series? I read that as we couldn't list "1. All Bard's Tales" but we could go "1. Bard's Tale I" and "2. Bard's Tale III" for example. Changed to reflect that. Odd rule, but interesting.

No date.  Im lazy.  Some of the systems listed were but one of many platforms the game was on.  Doesn't always matter, but might as well list it on the system I played it on.
I'm not thinking hard, I am thinking with my soul here.  Quick, no debating.  20 slots of love. Only listing 1 of a series.  (PSO and original Phantasy Star games are effectively different series.  Id say other series like Metroid and the Prime series would have the same distinction.) After the top 15 it gets a little hard though!  Lots of games I really like, but many aren't all time favorites.  So some games I love get legt out.  Heartbreak

In no particular order:

1: Wing Commander - Origin - PC
2: Warlords 2 - Strategic Studies Group - PC
3: Master of Orion 2 - Microprose - PC
4: Phantasy Star 2 - Sega - Genesis
5: Advance Wars 2 - Nintendo - GBA
6: Defender of the Crown - Cinemaware - Commodore 64
7: Ultima 5 - Origin - Commodore 64
8: Splatterhouse - Namco - Turbografx 16
9: Contra - Konami - NES
10: Castlevania - Konami - NES
11: Mechwarrior 4 Mercenaries - Microsoft - PC
12: Card Fighter's Clash - SNK - Neo Geo Pocket Color
13: Pathway to Glory Ikusa Islands - Red Lynx - N Gage
14: Phantasy Star Online - Sega - Gamecube
15: Dragon Force - Sega - Saturn
16: Star Wars - Atari - Arcade
17: Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic - Bioware - X Box
18: Fallout 2 - Interplay - PC
19: Dragon Warrior 4 - Enix - NES
20: Wizardry Tale of the Forsaken Land - Atlus - PS2

Very little nostalgia here.  A lot of stuff didn't make it because I don't feel a certain game holds up very well over time.  No token genre representations, just my favorite stuff I've played.  Some omissions are lamentable, and I'm sure someone will remind me in their list of something excellent I've missed. Certain games I feel pretty bad about leaving off actually.  Heh.  I'm sure I'll edit this further and perhaps provide additional commentary.

A nation consists of its laws. A nation does not consist of its situation at a given time. If an individual's morals are situational, then that individual is without morals. If a nation's laws are situational, that nation has no laws, and soon isn't a nation.

Not in order. Some I wouldn't go back and play again now.


X-Com - Mythos/Microprose - PlayStation - 1995                     (I didn't have a PC back then. I had an Amiga and a PlayStation)
Far Cry - Crytek/Ubi - PC - 2004                                           (does Crysis count as a sequel? Once I play it it may or may not supercede Far Cry. Still gorgeous, play is fun, and non-linear)
Everquest 1 - Verant/SoE - PC - 1999                                   (It changed a lot over the years, mostly for the better. The game that made me buy my first PC)
World of Warcraft - Blizzard - PC - 2005                                 (Everquest, done better)
Diablo 2 - Blizzard - PC - 2000                                               (click-click-click-click-loot!)

Max Payne - Remedy - PC - 2001                                          (both MP1 and it's sequel were great, and still the first games I play through whenever I build a new PC)
Soul Calibur II - Namco - XBox - 2002                                     (Aside from having bought every iteraton of the series to that point, I bought this one on all 3 platforms and spent far more quality time with this than with III.)
Super Mario Kart - Nintendo - SNES - 1992                             (needs no explanation)
Super Bomberman 2 - Hudsonsoft - SNES - 1995                     (nor does this. Added enough extras from the first one without getting silly)
Return to Castle Wolfenstein - ID/Activision - PC - 2001            (the game that gotme into PC FPS games.)

Twisted Metal 2 - Singletrac/Sony - PlayStation - 1996             (the first one was great, this one was a co-op lifestyle for me and my friends.)
Battlefield 1942 - DICE/EA - PC - 2002                                   (along with the Desert Combat mod, this was my most-played game along with EQ1 for a period spanning several years.)
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - Rockstar Games - PC - 2005   (Updated from GTAIII, simply because this is bigger, deeper and more of the experience.)
Kick Off Soccer - Dino Dini/Anco - Amiga - 1989                       (without Kick Off, there'd be no Sensi. Played this one the most, and probably still the best..)
Half-Life 2 - Valve - PC - 2004                                                (Do the expensions of Ep1 and Ep2 count as part of this? Either way, it's win in a FPS shell. Bumping Speedball 2 which holds great memories, but got kicked since I resampled it on XBLA)

Cannon Fodder - Sensible Software - Amiga - 1993                  (War had never been so much mouse-controlled fun!)
Syndicate - Bullfrog - Amiga - 1993                                        (Burn, motherfucker, burn!)
Sid Meier's Pirates! - Atari - Amiga - 2004                                (Updated choice from the Amiga version. The Amiga classic holds great memories, but I'd rather play the modern version over it.)
Super Street Fighter II - SNES - 1993                                    (The penultimate of the SF series that I put any significant time into)
Tekken Tag - Namco - PlayStation2 - 1999                             (I put more time into Tekken 2, but this one is my top one of the series)

7.  Full Throttle - LucasArts - PC - 1995
8.  Grim Fandango - LucasArts - PC - 1998
9.  Planescape: Torment - Black Isle Studios - PC - 1999
10. Indigo Prophecy/Fahrenheit - Quantic Dream - X-Box - 2005
11. The Witcher - CD Projekt RED STUDIO - PC - 2007
12. Alpha Centauri - Firaxis - PC - 1999
13. Gears of War - Epic Games - X-Box - 2006
14. Final Fantasy VI - Squaresoft - SNES - 1994
15. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune - Naughty Dog - 2007
16. Shadow Hearts 2 - Nautilus - PS2 - 2004
17. Castlevania:  Symphony of the Night - Konami - Playstation - 1997
18. VtM:  Bloodlines - Troika - PC - 2004
19. Civilization IV - Firaxis - PC - 2005
20. Gabriel Knight:  Sins of the Father - Sierra - PC - 1993

I'd go back and play any of these, but most of the older PC titles I've either lost the discs to, or don't run so well on a modern machine. 

Edit:  Realized I hadn't had Symphony of the Night on there.  Was tough to pick a game to cut to have it on there, but it really deserves to be on the list.  Also, sorry Blade Runner, Uncharted had to be on there.

"Young people who pretend to be wise to the ways of the world are mostly just cynics. Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the farthest thing from it. Because cynics don't learn anything. Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us." -SC
