If you are going to put Monty on the Run in there - the C64 version is the same game but with amazing music! :wink:

Command & Conquer: Red Alert (PC)
Half Life 2 (Ep 2 if you are being picky) (PC/XB)
Streets of Rage (MD)
Super Mario Galaxy (Wii)
Mass Effect 2 (PC/XB)
Goldeneye (N64)
Sonic The Hedgehog 2 (MD)
Tetris (GB)
Sonic All Stars Racing Tranformed (All)
Castle of Illusion: Starring Mickey Mouse (Master System, not your censored ass Mega Drive version!)

Blimey is it 10 years! I have mixed feelings about list features... I never seem to read the blurb for 90% of the games and just look at the numbers. What is there to say that is worth saying in a small space (compared to longer article)... Uncharted 'It's a fantastic story driven adventure when you shoot hundreds of people'; Tetris... 'it was sold as the pack in for the GB and mum's loved it'.... snore! Think I'd rather see just pictures, names and numbers! Just my thoughts anyway.

It's painful to have to leave out so many games that I love to play!

Here's my 10

Tetris - Particularly the Gameboy version
Way of the Exploding Fist
Impossible Mission
Flashback
Doom
Resident Evil 4
Goldeneye
LoZ Ocarina of Time
Minecraft
Wolfenstein: The New Order - Probably a fad, and because it's the first game I've played on Xbox One that really grabbed me, but I'm having as my tenth choice.

Isn't it annoying when reading other peoples top 10 when you realise they listed a game that should be in your own! How could I miss Half Life 2 and Minecraft :roll: BUT what do I remove from my 10...

THIS!

I thought I had a top 10 list...then I read the thread and realised how many awesome games I left out. I need to think about this a bit longer, I nearly left out Tetris for crying out loud! :shock:
