PermalinkTop 10 games of all time
So after much deliberation I managed to whittle down the top 50 to a top 10. I even managed to put them in order! (kinda) toast

I had to cheat a bit in the end with 1 & 2 as I simply couldn't pick one game from the series to be in the top 10. Obviously for others that are part of series I tend to really like most of the series, but managed to pick my favourite and put that one in the list smile

I think I want to do 10 small blog to flesh out my reasons for each game, but for now I just wish to put the list (It was super hard enough just trying to get it down to 10 and in an order)

1) Castlevania Series
2) Yoko Taro Series
3) Suikoden II
4) To The Moon
5) The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth
6) 3D Dot game Heroes
7) Double Dragon Neon
8) Bioshock
9) Unreal Tournament
10) Onimusha 2: Samurai’s Destiny

AtsumaKarin Not a legit list due to the series!!! laugh

J/K, definitely a few good games there, even though I haven't played some of them. To The Moon is probably the one that sticks out for me as the one I most want to play of the ones I haven't.

Literally never heard of 2) and 10) so will have to look into those. toast

biff_beefcake A 10 blog series would be interesting, I think! Of your list I've only played #6... redface but I did play the first Onimusha back in the day! I remember running out of saves lol I think that was the first time I'd run into a game that limited the number of saves you could do (I'm a chronic saver). My husband keeps trying to get me to play the Suikoden games laugh

Slayer1189 laugh I tried so hard to just pick one Castlevania or Yoko Taro game but it was driving me crazy lol. Managed to pick just one Bioshock, Unreal, Suikoden and Onimusha even though I love those series smile

2) Yoko Taro is a director who oozes his character into the games he directs. He directed Drakengard, Drakengard 3, Nier, Nier: Automata, Demon's Score and SINoALICE.

Drakengard and Nier are actually the same series but becuase they don't have the same name I clal them "The Yoko Taro Series"

10) This is the second entry in the Onimusha series. I love every entry. There was 4 main series entries and 2 spin-offs then the series died. I always wish Capcom would give more love to this series by bringing it back or remastering the main series for PS4. instead it seemed to die many years ago at the end of the PS2 era.

Slayer1189 @Biff - a top 10 blog fleshing them out will definitely be coming, though when i'm not sure toast.

3D dot game Heroes encapsulated everything I want from a 2D Zelda. Had my PS3 not yellow lighted I would have the platinum as I only had to grind a few small blocks to buy the last two swords.

Yeah Onimusha was limited saves given the original Resident Evil influence to the series. Although the first game was really good, the series went its own direction after that and IMO got better for it.

Your husband is a wise-man indeed smile laugh. Suikoden is well worth playing, especially given the series can now be gotten cheaply on PS3 as the actual discs are quite expensive. I would love a remaster of the series but that would mean relying on Konami which I wouldn't count on laugh

Badger2385 I always like looking at other people's top 10 lists. I'd probably have a lot of AAA titles on mine, but then I'd probably have different lists for each gen or...system brand (I can't think of the word I need here).

I'm shocked (bioshocked perhaps) that Bioshock is further down on the list considering some of the PS2 Castlevania iterations. But this is why I like other people's lists! Your experiences with games are so different from mine. And top 10s are difficult for an ass like me to do when, for quite a long time, I told people my favorite game was Hatoful Boyfriend because I finally lived my dream of dating a pigeon dude.

And with series, I'd do an order of favorite to least favorite in the series and have lists within lists. We can go deeper...

Harris59 So glad Isaac made your top 10, oh man I can't wait to dig into Afterbirth+ and buy the gorgeous physical copy just for the sake of it.

Slayer1189 @Badger - Yeah choosing a top 10 from over 3000 games was really tough. That's why I had to start at 50 and whittle it down. it would be far easier to do top 10 of a genre or top 10 for a system smile

I like a lot of obscure games but I am actually surprised to see how 'standard' my top 10 are. They may not be the biggest budget titles ever but they are all pretty well known smile. My top 50 hadless well known titles but they fall to the wayside when you really get to the cream of the crop laugh

I love basically everything Castlevania, though the 3 titles that I couldn't choose a favourite between were Castlevania, Aria of Sorrow and Harmony of Despair.

Your series comment... my list sense is tingling! I love doing lists and lists within lists. I like to order just about everything in life. I even have a list of favourite restaurants, then I have it broken down by food type laugh

@Harris - Yeah I was super addicted Isaac and loved exploring everything. Beating the game with The Lost) (pre easy mode patch) is also one of my proudest gaming accomplishments. A few times on that run I thought my seat was going to break under me from the clench laugh

I went off the expansions though as I really didn't like Greed mode. Felt like it ruined the entire point of Isaac to me. I intend to play a lot more Enter the Gungeon at some point for my next isaac-like experience toast
