    Currently:

    1. Ocarina of Time/Majora's Mask
    2. Metroid Prime Trilogy
    3. Undertale
    4. Amnesia: The Dark Descent/SOMA
    5. Persona 3 FES
    6. Psychonauts
    7. Banjo-Kazooie
    8. Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
    9. Silent Hill 2
    10. Star Wars Battlefront II (Not EA)
     
  2. I'm assuming this is all time. This is very hard, but I'll try. I'll separate singleplayer and multiplayer.

    Singleplayer:

    1. MGS4 (2008) or MGS3 (2004) - close call, leaning towards MGS4
    2. Witcher 1 (2007) or Witcher 3 (2015) - close call, leaning towards Witcher 1
    3. Dead Space (2008) - Holy shit this game was amazing
    4. Skyrim (2011) - I know, sorry
    5. Metroid Prime 3: Corruption (2007) - only Metroid game I've ever played, but so breathtaking
    6. LoZ - Twilight Princess (2006) or Ocarina of Time (1998) - close call, leaning towards Twilight Princess
    7. Amnesia: the Dark Descent (2010)
    8. The Forest (2018 official RD) - I only played singleplayer mode
    9. Metro 2033/Metro Last Light (2010/2013) - haven't played exodus yet
    10. Outlast (2013) - first one only

    Multiplayer:
    1. World of Warcraft (2004 - present) (fuck Blizzard tho) - so many hours, my whole childhood/adolescence. Favorite exp is probably Wrath.
    2. ARK: Survival Evolved (2017) - the most addicted I've ever been to a game, 1k hours over a single summer
    3. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege (2015) - most hours of any game on my Steam, 2200+. I hate this game now but I have to give it some credit.
    4. World of Tanks (2010 - present) - holy shit this game is such bullcrap. If I were to guess, I'd say I have maybe 3k-5k hours on it.
    5. Star Wars Battlefront I and II (Classic) - memories
    6. Planetside 2
    7. Payday 2 (1k hours)
    8. TF2 (meh)

    Conclusion, 2007 and 2008 were the best years for games in my opinion. 2015 saw some fantastic releases as well, including MGSV which is not on this list. Basically, anything Kojima-related or Zelda-related or Witcher-related would dominate the whole singleplayer list.

    Any year that doesn't have stupid loot boxes or games that are utterly broken at launch, I think should be considered the best years for games.


    I see you played a lot older games, have you ever played EarthBound?

    Yes it did, but from what I understand trying to get the original SNES EarthBound game is rather expensive to get. I seen the cheapest for it so far is about $240.

    You have to forgive my ignorance with certain games, but what is Counter Strike 1.6? Is that the original Counter Strike? Also what is Geometry Wars?
     
  9. It's always a tough one, I wouldn't be able to choose ten games but I'd have to say my favourites are:
    1. Shenmue
    2. Pokemon Silver
    3. Zelda Breath of the Wild
    4. Hollow Knight
    5. Fable 2

    Wow that is a lot of games, sadly the only two games that I have played are Lego LOTR and Half-Life.


    Have you ever played Ori and the Blind Forest?
     
  12. While I’m a console gamer and didn’t have access to a good PC before, my childhood consisted of a lot of PS2 games and Half-life 1 on my dad's computer. I played that for years with mods and expansions until HL2 came out, it was one of the best times I’ve ever had in gaming. :)

    I like snooker because it is more chess-like than pool. It adds an extra layer to the skill required beyond potting balls. ;)

    My favourite active game is badminton: doubles. Again, I find the added strategies of doubles play makes it more fun. :)

    I'm going to give some explanations too.

    I guess my absolute favourites are:

    Dark souls (Haven't finished any other soulbornes yet, but at least ds2 and ds3 don't feel quite as great. I look forward to getting to play Bloodborne.)
    Amnesia The Dark Descent (Although the main game alone isn't quite that special, the custom stories add in so much content that Amnesia is sure to remain as my favourite horror game propably forever. Shoutout to The Great Work.)

    Honorable mentions:

    Dark souls 2 (The only other soulsborne I have played enough to give an opinion.)
    The Legend of Zelda Wind Waker (My first tloz. Absolutely beautiful and perfect with all its flaws.)
    The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess (One of my childhood favourites. I don't get why it is so hated.)
    World of Warcraft (I don't even know why, but I keep coming back.)
    Call of Cthulhu Dark Corners of the Earth (Had they had time to polish this masterpiece, it could have challenged Amnesia. I love it and I hate it.)

    Okay, I can't give explanations to every masterpiece I've played. Some random shoutouts:
    Luigi's mansion, Super Mario Sunshine, Super Mario Galaxy, Super Mario Bros Wii, Super Paper Mario, Metroid Prime Trilogy, Metal Gear Solid 1 and 2 (haven't played others yet), The Darkest Dungeon

    My three fav games of all time are Zelda Wind Waker, Skyrim, and The Witcher 3, and that's a definite list.

    After this I must admit I've played insane amounts of OoT, Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword, Fallout 4 and Stardew Valley :) Oh and I have 700h in BoTW so I guess it counts haha. I just really damn love Zelda

  19. I'm a retired player so these are mostly pretty old. First some well known ones:
    • GTA San Andreas (2005) - Hey man, it's OG Loc homie OG Loc!
    • Starcraft (1998) - Raynor here. Sounds fun. This should be good.
    • Skyrim (2011) - I used to be an adventurer like you. Then I took an arrow to the knee...
    • L.A. Noire (2011) - press X to doubt
    • Age of Empires (1997) - you know you fucked up when you see their Centurion while you're still in the Stone Age.
    • Heroes of Might and Magic II (1996) - I remember spending several whole summer days with two other friends playing on the same computer.
    • Amnesia (2010) - played it around 2013 and it was the last game I really enjoyed
    Now some less well-known:
    • Gothic (2001) - the first RPG and the most immersive game I've ever played
    • Syberia (2002), Braid (2008), Machinarium (2009) - super lovely adventures
    • Black Mirror (2003) - a not so lovely adventure
    • Mafia (2002) - great story and atmosphere
    • Max Payne II (2003) - cool dark narrative and cartoons
    • Antichamber (2013) - will leave you very confused but in a good way
    • Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy (2003) - lightsabers!
