Default Re: Top 10 Favorite Video Games

Reviving this was a good idea. I think I have a few new favorites that are worth adding.

10. The Simpsons: Hit & Run (2003) - Ah yes, the nostalgia. This game was basically Grand Theft Auto, but with Simpsons characters. And if you were a fan of The Simpsons, this game was the greatest thing ever conceived. Truly, this was the most played game on my PS2, and one of the first games I ever played to 100% completion.

9. Mother 3 (2006) - This game was never released outside of Japan, but fans translated it, and now it's one of the most emulated games ever. This series has an absurd sense of humor that makes it such a fun experience. And yet, Mother 3 is also a very sad game. This game will flip-flop between lighthearted and depressing just to toy with your emotions. But all in all, it's a fantastic RPG with a great cast of characters, one of my favorite soundtracks ever (be warned, I'm going to say this a lot on this list), and a great sense of humor. I think Mother 3 is to Earthbound/Mother 2 as Majora's Mask is to Ocarina of Time. While Earthbound is an epic adventure, Mother 3 is an emotional journey. They're both great games, but I like Mother 3 a bit more. If you enjoyed Undertale, I heavily recommend you play this series, as it's where Undertale drew most of its inspiration.

8. Xenoblade Chronicles (2010) - This game was an instant favorite when I first played it. The world is MASSIVE and absolutely gorgeous. The soundtrack is phenomenal. The story is one of my all-time favorites. Xenoblade Chronicles really is one of the best RPGs ever made.

7. Super Mario Galaxy (2007) - Every now and then I get the hub world music from this game stuck in my head, and I think "wow, is this game really nine years old?" I feel like this game hasn't aged one bit. It's just so... massive and wonderfully designed. If you ask me, this game is the peak of Nintendo's most iconic franchise.

6. Ōkami (2006) - If you combine Japanese folklore with Zelda mechanics and a gorgeous art style, you get Ōkami. It's a fantastic game with a fantastic soundtrack, unique controls, and one of my favorite final bosses ever. I really should replay this some time.

5. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (2000) - As I said before, this is my favorite Zelda game because of the mood. The music gets progressively more eerie as the moon gets closer to Termina, and the people of Clock Town become increasingly more dejected. I don't think any other Zelda game makes you feel for the NPCs as much as this one. It's so different from other Zelda games, but in a way that I love. The number of dungeons is pretty short, but they're all wonderfully designed. And the music, oh my. Even if it's mostly the same soundtrack as Ocarina of Time, the way the music creates a feeling of impending doom in this game is just fantastic.

4. Portal 2 (2011) - This game is just the perfect combination of excellent level design and great comedic storytelling. It took everything that made Portal 1 great and expanded upon it. If you haven't played it, I heavily recommend it.

3. Metal Gear Solid (1998) - MGS is such a great franchise. And yet it's totally bizarre - the games have such attention to detail and a focus on realism, and yet you still have a levitating psychic, a crazy Russian colonel who can shoot lightning from his hands, snipers who can photosynthesize, and of course, giant mechs. To put it briefly... it's like one of my Japanese animes...

2. Sonic Adventure 2 Battle (2001) - Yep, still love this game. If anything, I love it even more now. The soundtrack is iconic. The voice acting is cheesy but memorable. The chao garden is still the cutest thing ever. This game has its flaws, but honestly I love it even more for them. For me, Sonic Adventure 2 is just the perfect game for inducing that warm, fuzzy feeling of nostalgia.

1. Pokémon Yellow (1999) - And of course this is staying at number one. This game means more to me than any other, and although it's not objectively the best Pokémon game, it's still the game most responsible for shaping me as an individual, and that's why I have it ranked as number one.

noah fence but smg has better level design, better music, better controls, actual bosses, a hubworld that isn't depressingly empty, and it's also not full of glitches. the only thing sm64 has going for it over smg is the fact that it's been so thoroughly dissected by fans Ż\_(ツ)_/Ż sm64 is great and i have a lot of love for it but galaxy is better

Default Re: Top 10 Favorite Video Games

an updated list (in no particular order)


10. SMITE (Hi-Rez did a good job with this mythical MOBA)

9. Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Hacker's Memory (while the plot was not as solid at its predecessor, I prefer this one due to the return of some old favorites)


8. Sonic Adventure 2 Battle (I still love the Chao Garden, although this game hasn' aged too well)


7. Super Mario 64 DS (although the controls sucked this was a decent port)

6. Zoo Tycoon 2 Ultimate Collection (amplified with mods)

5. Pokémon Ultra Sun / Ultra Moo (probably my favorite core Pokémon games so far)

4. Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep (This is how you do a good prequel)

3. Spore (needs a sequel pronto)


2. ARK: Survival evolved (like Minecraft, but SOOOO Much better, and with DINOSAURS)

1. Donkey Kong 64 (my child hood right here, bruh, too bad I could never beat it)
