PermalinkFavourite 50 games of all time
The list is mainly a placeholder while i'm brainstorming, but i'd also love to discuss any of the games or hear from you all about similar games or your favourites toast

In the process of trying to decide what my Top 10 games ever are. I managed to get a clear top 50 candidates, so I decided to put 'em in a blog while I think about how to get it down to a top 10 smile

Kornfan2007 Favourite game of last gen is Batman Arkham Asylum.

2 stand outs this gen when thinking about it: Rayman Legends and Yakuza 0. I know Rayman was last gen, but I only played it on PS4.

I don't have big list for my favourites. Just those few come to mind :-)

Slayer1189 I haven't played any of those games.

I have played Batman: Arkham City, but wasn't too fond of it.

The only Yakuza I have played is 4. I like it well enough and will definitely play other entries in the series. I have Yakuza 5 sitting as it was on the instant game collection smile

AtsumaKarin Damn! Some nice games in that list, mate! smile Hey...wait a minute...where's Robotron?!?!?!?!?! laugh

Nice surprise to see Bubbles on that list, though, definitely my favourite game on the Midway compilation that I hadn't played on XBLA previously!

Ah, so you're one of those: "Jak II is (at least one of) the GOAT!" people, then. I feel like I'm putting my foot in my mouth a lot lately. :P

I guess it didn't help that one of the orbs glitched out on me in my playthrough, thankfully, it didn't take *too* long using the glitch to put it right.

Mercury Hg!!! I REALLY wanna play that soon but quelle surprise, not available here. I think it was pulled for some reason, though, as opposed to not being given to us in the first place like so many other games lol.

You deserve a cookie, heck no, a jar of cookies for featuring MSR! Now...when will you be a Black Belt Grandmaster? wink

Root Beer Tapper! Awesome game! Timesplitters 2 as well, though I think I preferred Future Perfect, the characterisation of Cortez in that one was hilarious imo! laugh

Will definitely play Ys soon...once I finish Legend of Heroes...if I finish Legend of Heroes. Sigh, I knew I'd regret starting that this year. I WILL finish it, though!!! In my JRPG year (2018), I'll go back to it!

So many other great games I didn't mention from your list there as well, a few I haven't played and indeed some I want to as well!

As for my list...well, I'll leave that until a future blog. smile

Slayer1189 laugh Sorry to say but not a huge fan of Robotron! I like it but definitely not a fave of mine.

Bubbles is an underrated gem (It probably doesn't help that a description of the game doesn't do it justice). I remember Bubbles being one of the very first Arcade games I competed for ad the fond memories have always stayed with me. This game is pretty much the reason Midway Arcade Origins gets 5 stars.

Indeed I am one of those Jak II lovers. I really the love the series as a whole, but the 2nd game just takes the top spot for me. I loved the variety and the challenge of getting all of the precursor orbs. The game has so much content that is very varied and to me it seems to work well together. Obviously many of the trophy goers glitch the precursor orbs in the game which cuts a lot of the content out.

I am aware you love the original Jak best, which I ca certainly see where you are coming from in terms of a pure collect-em up it does that very well.

I really hope to be a Black Belt Grandmaster one day! I should have just got it way back when I started the game as I got so close when I first tried it then left it for years. Had I known then (Way before TA was even a thing) how notoriously difficult that would be I would have persevered as I got so close a few times facepalm

Loved both Timesplitters 2 and 3, though I wasn't too fond of the original. I would agree there are some really funny moments in Future Perfect story and would say Future Perfect is the best story in the series, but in terms of overall content I really love 2.

Ys is definitely worth a play. It is actually a series I missed most of my time growing up and only started it with the chronicles re releases on Steam. Strange as most games here I played growing up. But Ys I only recently discovered and now I intend to play catch up on the series smile

OOOO, a hint of a potential similar Atsuma blog. If that is on the cards I look forward to that. I love seeing how people value games and what gets included or left out in a favourites list. In fact, I think I have a bit of an extreme guilty pleasure for lists and stats redface

Tiawyn I see a Star Ocean game on your list. the Star Ocean games are one of my favorite. Star Ocean: Till the End of Time was re released on ps4 recently Star Ocean: Till the End of Time I bought it the day it was released.
I also like the Tales of games. some of the final fantasy games were good too. I also like the Digimon Cyber Sleuth game and there is another Cyber Sleuth game coming.

Slayer1189 Yeah I love the Star Ocean series. Till the End of Time is my favourite. I saw it came out on PS4 but I haven't got it yet. Whilst I love it, it is a huge undertaking so I'll hold off until I know I have the time laugh. I am also unsure whether I'd rather replay Till the End of Time or play Integrity and Faithlessness.

I haven't been able to get into the Tales games but I intend to give the series another try. I remember back on the Gamecube I got Tales of Symphonia and Skies of Arcadia Legends at a very similar time. I ended up clicking with Skies of Arcadia so Symphonia got abandoned, never to be finished.

I have heard quite good things about the Digimon games. I'll need to give them a try at some point smile
