    1. Super Mario Bros. 3 (Nintendo NES)
    2. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (Sega SMD)
    3. Crash Bandicoot (PlayStation)
    4. Conker Live & Reloaded (Original Xbox)
    5. Super Mario 3D World (Nintendo Wii U)
    6. Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom (Nintendo Wii)
    7. Dragon Ball Z: The Legend (Sega Saturn)
    8. Red Dead Redemption (Xbox 360)


    9. Uncharted (PlayStation 3)
    10. Ridge Racer (PlayStation PSP)

    I grew up with platforming and fighting games, but a shooter (I know it's a sandbox game) implemented so well as RDR is worth playing to its full.

    I forgot
    1. Entire Souls series, Demon's Souls/Dark Souls (and probably Dark Souls 2) (PS3/PC)
    2. Sonic & Knuckles (Genesis)
    3. Crazy Taxi (Dreamcast)
    4. Call of Duty 2 (PC)
    5. Soul Calibur 2 (PS2/GC/Xbox)
    6. Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal (GBC)
    7. LoZ: Minish Cap (GBA)
    8. LoZ: LTTP (SNES)
    9. Spyro Trilogy (PS1)

    EDIT: 10. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed (Vita). Despite being a multiplat, there's something about the Vita version that I just love more than PC/PS3/360

    EDIT2: Dragon Warrior 1&2 on the GBC, those games were the tits.

    EDIT3: Foxi reminded me of the Worms games, though just Worms 2/Armageddon/Worms World Party/Worms 3D (I beg you don't cry ;O; )

    Suppose that's all I can think of ATM

    These are somewhat newer games that havent yet been put to the test with a second or completion playthrough, or are just too new to be best of all time game for me yet.
    Burnout Revenge (PS2/X360)
    Super Mario Galaxy Series (Wii)
    Final Fantasy 9 (PS1) i know i know its old enough, but ive only played through it once a few years ago on my PSP... in fact its due for another play...

    Home consoles:
    1. The Legend of Zelda (NES)
    2. Sonic 3&Knuckles (Mega Drive) - it was supposed to be 1 game, so I'm counting it as one
    3. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (N64)
    4. Jet Set Radio (Dreamcast)
    5. Super Mario Sunshine (Gamecube)
    6. Bioshock Infinite (PC/360/PS3)

    7. Need for Speed Carbon (PSP) - the best racer on the console...
    8. The World Ends with You (NDS) - one of the only things Square Enix have doneright in the past couple of years
    9. Fire Emblem: Awakening (3DS)

    Stalker - Shadow of Chernobyl
    Stalker - Call of Pripyat
    Dark Souls
    The Stanley Parable (the original mod; haven't tried the commercial version, and its demo frankly turned me off)
    Fallout 3

    Roughly in order of importance to me--I've been playing videogames for about two decades, and this list only really reflects the past five years. But they are the games I've had the most fun with, which have felt pretty well made, whose mods are amazing where available, and which I can go back and play again and still appreciate it as much as I had the very first time I played.

    Bioshock Infinite would be in the gutter with Mission Impossible on the N64

    It's the control aspect. I don't know why, but when I play it on the PS3, I can never nail the pre-race boost wheras on the PSVita, I'm perfectly able to do so. I have no idea if it has something to do with input lag or the shape of the triggers but anything involving triggers simply works better on the PSVita for me.

    As for my "Gaemz of All Time" list...
    1. [PC] Fallout 2 (series, although 2 is probably the best game of all time)
    2. [PS1] Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver (series, multiplatform, but primarily PlayStation)
    3. [GB/GBC] Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow (series, but Yellow is where I started and I still have a strong sentiment for it)
    4. [GBA] Mario Kart: Super Circuit (series, and this one is easily one of the best Mario Karts in existence)
    5. [DC] Sonic Adventure 2 (series, I like 2 better, and although I originally played the game on the Gamecube, it originates from the Dreamcast so that system gets credit)
    6. [GC] Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes (series, but this one I especially like)
    7. [PSP] Monster Hunter Portable (series, and yeah, yeah, I know it was originally a PS2 game, but there's something about hunting with friends on the go that makes it "better" than the home console variety)
    8. [PS2] Tekken Tag (series, but I'll credit the PS2 one. The sheer amount of hours I sank into playing multiplayer with friends on Tekken 3 and Tekken Tag must be ridiculous, I dread to think about it)
    9. [Sega Saturn] Sonic R (I don't care what anybody else says, I loved this game to bits as a child and it was one of the two discs most desired by all my friends who wanted to borrow games from me, the other being Worms: Armageddon. I had the PC version back then, but it originates from the Saturn and that version is arguably better, so it gets credit. Feel the Sunshine, bi*ches, Sonic is my Diamond in the Sky - no homo ;O; )
    10. [PC] Unreal Tournament (series, and this was a tough one. Between this, Quake 2 and Counter Strike, I choose Unreal Tournament as the one that had the most entertainment value - I played it on Multi to no end and loved every bit of it)
    I tried to encompass as many systems as I possibly could on the list and avoid contemporary systems, but "10" is really not an amount I can narrow down to with a clean conscience - I'm missing vital titles like Worms Armageddon, Ace Attorney, MDK, Quake II, Half-Life or Metroid Prime, there are so many games that I hold dear that making a "Top 10" is a nigh impossible task for me. I think that picking a "Top 100" would be an equally difficult task.

    The demo is linear but the commercial version is just like the mod, just with a LOT more content and endings and it looks a million times better. AFAIK all content of the mod is in the commercial version as well.

    Mine... Other than a few I really don't know.
    1. Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective - game of the year every year.
    2. quite possible Osu!
    3. Super Mario Galaxy. Anything below that, I really don't know.

    Damn, I forgot to make room for Spider-Man 2/Ultimate Spider-Man and Batman: Arkham City. I'd say they're the definitive superhero games, and capture the essence of the characters pretty well.

    So I guess my list of 7-8 is now at 9 because fuck your rules, you don't own me, man.
