My favorite video games of all time

  • Aug 19, 2009

These games will forever be a part of my life, for good or bad.  Most of these sucked up so many hours of my life that I think my lifetime hours of sleep may not equal to all my gaming hours combined.... well thats a bit exaggerated.
Starcraft Boxart
My favorite game of all time.  Building armies and destroying your friends in a 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, or even 4v4 game were classics.  There was a year in college where I was playing nonstop at the internet cafes which eventually lead to me failing a bunch of classes and ended up taking 6 years to get a 4 year degree... But it was all worth it BABY!!!

See the full review, "Best RTS game of all time if not best game of all time!".

This is the greatest RPG of all time.  Story was awesome and gameplay was god damn crazy at the time when it first came out.  I can still play this game from beginning to end today even though its like 15 years old now.

Most say this is the greatest FF of all time.  I can totally see that, but this is a close 2nd to #6 for me.  Although the story and characters of this one is much more memorable than 6, It wasn't as great in terms of gameplay compared to it.

Much like starcraft, this game "postponed" my graduation in college.  But then again, I did sell a bunch of items on ebay to pay for my lunches back then.

Controlling a bunch of blocks with a number around a grid doesn't sound fun to most of you but we're talking about taking over china here!!!
This damn game pissed me off big time cause I never beat it.  So I had to cheat the hell out of it and give myself unlimited money and make my agents have the highest stats possible... but somehow I still couldn't beat it!!!  I guess I just suck at it but god damn it was fun playing this game at night trying to hunt down those scary ass aliens.

Box Art
This was the game that made RTS popular.  Although it didn't have multiplayer options, it was still fun for being the first RTS.

The first and best mario kart of all time.  I don't know why but those tracks like rainbow road gives me flashback of the gold ol days.
mario kart 64 box cover
The racing part of this game wasn't as great as the first one but the battle mode is by far the best of all the mario karts. I remember my first year in college battling my 3 other roommates all night and even gambled on it too.
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
I think this was the first and only Zelda that I really liked.  The only down side to this game was there wasn't much gear/loot you can obtain to make Link stronger.
World of Warcraft Logo
Well I had to put this game on here just cause I spent so much money and time on my character.  It actually keeps count of the time you've spent on a character and lets just say I've literally lost 100 days of my life on this game.  Sad......

Uncharted water cover
Probably the most unknown on this list but I just love the concept of this game.  A captain of a crew sailing around the world taking on pirates and searching for buried treasure.

I failed 5 classes in one semester during jr high school because of this game.  I just kept ditching class and went to the arcades and played this game til 3pm and went home.  With that said, it deserves to be on this list.

What did you think of this list?

Fun to Read
