Default Personal Video Game Top Lists

You can go as high or as low as you want

I think this would be a fun little thread that like 4 people might respond to.

It's also a fun excuse to take a deep dive down memory lane for all of us, moreso than Ki's project will. No offense to his project, but this is a better opportunity for people with more niche taste to get their favorite games out there on the chance that others have played them.

I'll try and list my top 50 games, but obviously under the disclaimer that this is really difficult and could change all the time. I will also use multiple games in the same series. Changing that rule would change a lot. Also these will all generally be single player games, otherwise stuff like League of Legends or Hearthstone would probably make the list somewhere.

One will likely notice that my two favorite genres tend to be RPGs and Platformers. Also I have several #basicbitch selections and you're just gonna have to deal with it.

1. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
2. Donkey Kong Country 2
3. Banjo Kazooie
4. Batman: Arkham City
5. Kingdom Hearts 2
6. Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
7. The Last of Us
8. Nier: Automata
9. Persona 5
10. Tales of Symphonia
11. Portal 2
12. Paper Mario
13. Donkey Kong Country
14. Chrono Trigger
15. Xenoblade Chronicles 2
16. Mass Effect 2
17. God of War (2018)
18. Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch
19. Baldur's Gate 2: Shadow of Amn
20. Resident Evil 4
21. Tales of Berseria
22. Batman: Arkham Asylum
23. Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door
24. Final Fantasy XII
25. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze
26. Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon
27. Banjo Tooie
28. Donkey Kong Country 3
29. Super Metroid
30. Dragon Quest VIII
31. Super Castlevania IV
32. Radiata Stories
33. Tales of Xillia
34. Fallout: New Vegas
35. Hollow Knight
36. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Trials and Tribulations
37. Donkey Kong 64
38. Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies
39. Guitar Hero 3
40. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
41. The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker
42. Ace Attorney Investigations 2
43. Final Fantasy VII
44. Super Mario Odyssey
45. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
46. Rayman Legends
47. Inside
48. Crackdown
49. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Justice for All
50. Xenoblade Chronicles X

Damn that was really hard

liking the new Zelda more than old is still heretic talk to me

Rayman Legends was fun but also sucked compared to old Rayman

I really don't like the emphasis on speed through the entire thing like I'm playing half Mario half Sonic

This is gonna be based around what I'm more interested in these days. I don't play games much anymore, so I think some of the old favorites would go off the list if I played them again. Trying to keep this more to my current preferences, this is my attempt at a list:

1. Azure Dreams
2. Armored Core V
3. Makai Kingdom
4. Shinobido: Way of the Ninja

(the four top games are all tied, to be honest)
5. King of Fighters Neowave
6. Cleopatra Fortune
7. Virtua Fighter 4 Evolution
8. G-Darius
9. Strikey Sisters
10. Samurai Warriors 2
11. King's Bounty: The Legend
12. Tenchu: Fatal Shadows
13. Samurai Aces
14. Final Doom
15. Dungeon Master II
16. Disgaea 2
17. Soul Calibur II
18. Raiden III
19. Bishi Bashi Special (best party game ever. this is a fact.)
20. Deathsmiles
21. Realms of Arkania III: Shadows Over Riva (super nerdy PC RPG, but it's great if you have the patience for it. Making your 6 character team alone takes a couple hours.)
22. Pirates: The Legend of Black Kat
23. Dynasty Warriors 4 and Samurai Warriors 1 tied.
24. another Tenchu game or some more shoot 'em ups or fighting games. I could make a top 30 of just fighters...
25. ...and some more Armored Core games, because why the hell not.

A big nostalgia pick would be System Shock for DOS, but I don't care to really play it anymore.

I’m sorry that you don’t see the light regarding new Zelda

Rayman in general has always been that series for me that’s undeniably good but I’d rather be playing Donkey Kong or Mario pretty much every time

It was my favorite Zelda for a long time. Until...well, a quick gander at my #1 says a lot

Anyone that’s into graphic novel-type games should certainly try the Ace Attorney franchise, which packs 3 in my top 50 and could have maybe even had a few more. Very easy to check out the entire first trilogy with a DS emulator. They are truly wonderful, lots of twists and turns and fun deduction gameplay

Rayman 1 is way better than Donkey Kong and Mario
