    1. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (1) It's still at the top of the pile. The addition of parallel worlds added depth to the Zelda universe's gameplay.  This game wrote the formula for those later to come with all of its additions.  Spin attacks, heart containers, many items, and multiple floor dungeons with more than just staircases to travel between floors all were...

    2. Super Smash Bros. Melee (4) No other multiplayer game has consumed as much of my time as Melee has.  This game seems to somehow get better with time.  While it lacks some of the features of its sequel, it simply has a better feel to the gameplay that made it far more addictive.  The characters were unbalanced at times but never so much that it really mattered except at the...

    3. Final Fantasy IX (3) This is hands down my favorite Final Fantasy game, largely because it goes back flawlessly to the roots of the series.  Indeed, part of the allure of this game was the story (my favorite), set not in a futuristic setting but instead the standard fantasy medieval setting.  There is plenty of lore, backstory, and allusions to previous games that will make you...

    4. Radiant Historia (2) This is one of the most pleasant surprises I've had in years.  The time travel concept in this game is wonderful and uses your decisions as the method of crafting where in the timeline may be accessed.  In order to reach a new area you will often need to get a new skill which can only be obtained in a different part of the timeline.  Some of the decisions...

    5. Puzzle Pirates (8) The time I spent playing this game vastly outclocked every other other entry on this list, combined. The premise for this game is great, an MMO based on puzzles.  Not all of the puzzles are original (bejeweled clones included) but throwing a persistant rating system on top of them really adds to the experience and makes it less of a one game takes all deal....

    6. Shadow of the Colossus (9) If I had to pick the most prominent reason I liked this game, it would be because it took everything except the boss fights out of the equation and got straight to the reason you were playing the game in the first place.  The sixteen bosses display a surprising amount of variety and each requires some exploration to discover how to approach finding its weak...

    7. Final Fantasy VI (6) The end of the two dimensional numeric entries in the Final Fantasy series went out with a bang.  Ultimately the transition to the third dimension meant a short lived setback, both graphically and otherwise.  The game breaks itself up into two sections, at the start trying to prevent the world from being destroyed and later dealing with the results of your...

    8. Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 (14) This was a surprising and wonderful title for a series I had never heard of considering how late in the console's life cycle it was released, this RPG mixed with a visual novel provided plenty of different gameplay.  The addition of RPG elements such as leveling, magic, and dungeon crawling turn the choose your own adventure characteristics of visual...

    9. Valkyria Chronicles (12) There is so much to love about this game.  The hand drawn art style that is present not only in cutscenes but in gameplay is spectacular and gives it a unique visual style.  What originally drew me to the game were the concepts of the battle system. Using the SRPG concept of having multiple characters move across the battle field but then stripping away...

    10. Golden Sun (5) This classic RPG with plenty of twists leaves a more memorable experience than most games in its genre. The story of the elemental stars perched atop the lighthouses gives you a general next destination throughout the game without telling you how you'll get there, and leaving you waiting for the next climatic battle with Saturos and Mendard's group. The battles would be...

    11. Okami (11) The concept of running around as a wolf with a magic paintbrush and using it to change the environment around you seems almost katamari-crazy at first, but after a while just feels normal.  The game at first feels a bit short before achieving its RPG length with a zelda-like midgame boss.  The normal battles have a little bit of variety thrown into the techniques used...

    12, Mirror's Edge (NR) Never has platforming felt more satisfying to me than while running through the game's colorful environments.  The platforming is so good that it is easy to feel disappointed when you resort to a gun or get into a fist fight.  Visually the game is a spectacle and there is plenty of creativity in the level design.  Having the opportunity to do more free...

    13. Portal 2 (10) Not much regressed in this addition, as I only had a slight preference for the predecessor's story.  The game is much longer and does so without wearing out its welcome.  They managed to keep GLaDOS' murderous personality and add the Wheatley and Cave Johnson characters.  The addition of all the different goo's provides a plethora of puzzle solving options,...

    14. ICO (22) This is a truly unique and beautiful game and I was so happy to see it get a high definition 3D remake.  Perhaps one of the best things about ICO is how much story it can tell with so little.  The team for this game did an excellent job of telling story without resorting to a mess of dialogue.  The solitary flaw for this game is the fact that the combat seems...

    15. Pokemon SoulSilver (13) This is what I think is the most complete game in the series.  The definitive pokemon for me it improved ever so slightly on the original Silver version with the addition of new pokemon and extra events.  The critical feature of the two games that extends them beyond any of the others is the size of the world.  You feel like you're done at the elite...

    16. Fire Emblem (15) This probably qualifies as my favorite tactical RPG. Winning an individual battle was one thing but keeping the characters you want alive and leveling properly forced you to adjust your strategies when an important ally is in trouble.  In aaddition the range of main characters, weapons, and classes adds excellent depth to the experience.  The game wouldn't let...

    17. Advance Wars (20) This is the game that actually prompted me to get a GBA. This was pretty much the classic war-type board game brought into the video game world.  In other ways it was so much better.  The results of individual fights were usually pretty predictable so you could strategically plan multiple moves ahead without needing to have too many contingency plans....

    18. The Legend of Dragoon (18) This masterful PS1 game has stood up really well over time. I'm normally not a fan of games that require fast thinking or reactions but the timing mechanic for additions in this game really kept you engaged in the battle.  I could have done without button mashing to make item attacks more powerful but the idea made up for it.  Dragoons were wonderful as...
