The Greatest Games Of All Time

Post by Darran@Retro Gamer » Wed Jan 14, 2015 4:04 pm

That's right, we're going to do an absolutely massive article to mark the greatest games of all time. It's been ten years since the last reader's poll, so it will be interesting to see how people's tastes have changed (if at all) over the last 10 years.
There's no limit on system (I'm pretty sure the original had Metal Gear Solid 2 which would have been new back then) so simply tell us the ten best games you've ever played in order of preference.

Mine are
Strider
Robotron: 2084
The Last Of Us
Radiant Silvergun
Outrun 2006: Coast 2 Coast
Street Fighter III: Third Strike
Half-Life 2
Super Mario 64
Devil Crash
Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night

Some serious soul searching to get to that list, and it you asked me another 10 times over the next few weeks it would probably change every time.

Final Fantasy VIII (PS1)
Grand Theft Auto San Andreas (PS2)
Spyro the Dragon (PS1)
Pokemon Gold/Silver (GB)
Darkstalkers Chronicle: The Chaos Tower (PSP)
Tekken 2 (PS1)
Medievil (PS1)
Soul Calibur III (PS2)
Streets of Rage II (Mega Drive)
Yakuza 2 (PS2)

Honestly, this is far too hard! I don't even know if that above list is correct or if I'll suddenly remember something other games but those are the ones I've either spent the most ridiculous amount of hours on or replayed the most times...
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.
