Your Top 10 Favorite Games

Games & Technology
This thread is exactly what the topic suggests.

List your top 10 games of any genre, console, or generation.

If you find it too hard to list them in order of your favorite to least favorite then just list 10 of your favorites with no particular order; Multiple games in a series can be listed as 1 entry

My ten in order are

1 Master Of Orion II
2 Final fantasy V, VII, and IX
3 Skyrim/Oblivion
4 Super Metroid
5 Castlevania: Lament of Innocence
6 Unreal Tournament
7 Half - Life
8 MGS 1 & 2
9 Deus Ex
10 Icewind Dale I & II
Hrm, spanning any system is a tough list to make. Especially without sitting down, listing and really thinking about it. So, with that in mind, here is my list:

#1 is Chrono Trigger (SNES)
#2 is Metroid and Metroidvania games (Super Metroid, Castlevania Symphony of the Nights, etc)

The rest are in no particular order

Resident Evil Remake, 2 and 4
Final Fantasy IV and VI
Metal Gear Solid
Legend of Zelda series
Half-Life 1, 2 and episodes (wtb Ep 3...)

2D Metroid style games are my favorite kind of games to play even though I list Chrono Trigger as my #1 game.

By the by, Steam Autumn sale began today. Woot woot!
yeah i love the 2d metroid games but idk for some reason i really enjoyed the metroid prime series..

It was nice to see everything in 3d and from samus' perspective
The Prime trilogy were great games but it's hurt by one big factor; it uses a controller. I really hate using a controller for FPS. I'm a long time player of FPS with keyboard and mouse and I have a ridiculously hard time using a controller for FPS games. Prime did a great job with the controls and the fact that it was a Metroid game made me look past my issue but I still hated using a controller.

Such a hard task. I feel differently about different games on different days. Still, let's try . . .

10. Everquest
The first game I ever played that literally took me into another world WITH OTHER PEOPLE there. I'll never forget that experience.
9. Bioshock/Mass Effect/Assassin's Creed
OK OK I cheated. But my 3 favorite console games of this decade, and I had to cram them in somewhere.
8. Ogre Battle
Really an amazing game. The random plot developments and changes to the overall game story line were 15+ years ahead of their time.
7. Baldur's Gate II.
I was also great, but II was terrific. And Go for the eyes, Boo!
6. Final Fantasy III
Best music in a game. Best toons. Best game play in its day. And Mog.
5. Zork
What can I say? The game that started everything.
4. Final Fantasy Tactics (PS2)
Still the most replayable game ever made, infinitely challenging.
3. Disgea
Levelling items by going INSIDE them and fighting item bosses? YES PLEASE!!
2. Skyrim
Such a beautiful game, and the best dungeon-crawler ever made.
1. Still waiting for the PERFECT game :-)
