Nintendo Network: xavi707
Pure (X360): SSX on wheels. Love that.
Half-Life 2 (X360): Two words : Gravity Gun. I would have put this game higher, but when a robot dog is a much more interesting character that the hero, there is a problem.
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (X360): Maybe the most important FPS of this generation of console.
FIFA 10 (X360): I have played soccer games since Kick Off, and no one had given me so much pleasure that this game.
Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne (PC): Great action, great atmosphere, and Mona Sax.
F-Zero (SNin): At this time, Mode 7 was the most amazing thing ever, and F-Zero a mind-blowing racer.
Splinter Cell (Xbox): Hiding in the shadows for the first time as Sam Fisher was a blast.
Virtua Tennis 2 (Dreamcast): The only drawback of this awesome sports game ? No Sampras and no Agassi.
Super Street Fighter 2 (SNin): The definitive version of the godfather of the fighting games.
Psychonauts (Xbox): Crazy, smart, original and fun game.
Alan Wake (X360): Good action, incredible atmosphere, but no Mona Sax.
Batman: Arkham Asylum (X360): Hahahahahahahahahahaha.
Ninja Gaiden 2 (X360): There Will Be (a lot of) Blood. Fantastic gameplay, but the level design was poor, and the graphics not very impressive.
Top Spin (Xbox): AKA The real Virtua Tennis 3 game.
Quake 3 Arena (PC): A FPS on steroids, incredible fast and very skillful. And there is a little mod called Rocket Arena.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (X360): Bigger, louder and better.
Gears of War 2 (X360): Bigger, louder and better. And with a giant worm.
SoulCalibur IV (X360): Prettier, better and bouncier.
Grand Theft Auto IV (X360): greats characters in an incredible open world.
BioShock (X360): Incredible atmosphere, and smart.
Splinter Cell: Double Agent (X360): What's more fun than hiding in the shadows? Hiding in the shadows as a double agent.
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (PS3): Smart-ass Nathan Drake in a gorgeous adventure.
Red Dead Redemption (X360): John Marston is one of the greatest character in video game history.
Rallisport Challenge (Xbox): The spiritual son of Sega Rally, with F-Zero dna.
God of War 3 (PS3): I am not a big fan of the God of War's gameplay, but in this threequel, incredible moments succeed incredible moments.
SSX 3 (Xbox): Huge mountain, incredible fun.
Street Fighter IV (X360): Return of the king, in a blistering way.
Super Mario 64 (N64): Well, is there a Mario game so groundbreaking ?
Marvel vs Capcom 2 (Dreamcast): An incredible 3-on-3 fighting extravaganza game.
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 (Xbox): The best of the serie, with the best gameplay, and with my favorite music intro in a video game : TNT from AC/DC.
Super Mario Galaxy (Wii): I was thinking after the very disappointing Mario Sunshine that Nintendo had lost their magic with Mario games. Oh boy, i was wrong.
Bayonetta (X360): Excellent gameplay, with an incredible sexy, sassy and funny character.
Dead Or Alive 3 (Xbox): I love the DOA gameplay, and this one was absolutely visually breathtaking.
Dead Rising (X360): Braaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiinnnnnnns.
SoulCalibur (Dreamcast): Incredible gameplay, and at the time, an incredibly gorgeous game. At last, an old gamer dream was fulfilled: arcade at home (without paying 200$ Neo Geo game).
Super Mario World (Snin): Mario with a yellow cape, riding a green dinosaur?!!! No really, what can be cooler?
Ninja Gaiden (Xbox): A dream comes true: an action adventure game with a fight gameplay as good as SoulCalibur's.
Super Mario Kart (Snin): For me, there is only one Mario Kart game on home console, and it is the first one.
Mirror's Edge (X360): I love Faith.
Super Mario Bros 3 (Nes): Mario flying in a tanooki suit?!!! That's the definition of awesomeness.
Halo (Xbox): The first and the best.
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (Snin): A game in which we can throw chicken can only be a great game.
Jet Set Radioooooooo (Dreamcast): "Yeah, we're riding high on a smooth stream of supersonic sounds, and I'm your captain and DJ, Professor K. Jet Set Radio!!!"
Shenmue (Dreamcast): An incredible quest for revenge.
Mass Effect (X360): You have to save the galaxy. A pretty easy job for Shepard.
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64): When others save the galaxy, other only save the same girl over and over again.
Star Wars : Knights of the Old Republic (PC): Greatest plot twist ever.
Dead Space (X360): "Houston, we have a problem."
Mass Effect 2 (X360): If you have a problem (and i mean big problem, not problems like saving the same girl for the gazillion times), if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire... The Shepard's Crew.
Shenmue 2 (Dreamcast): The game starts slowly, to reach then incredible height. This game is also related to my biggest disappointment in gaming: no Shenmue 3. :(

#29. New Super Mario Bros. Wii (Wii)
The purpose of this list is to express my very own experience. There is no tacit will of making this empiric list into a universal one. I haven't played tons of games out there. Even worse: I haven't play a single game of many sistems out there. Therefore, there's no way I could make a top 50 representative enough to express: (1) quality from an objective perspective (2) quality from a universal intersubjective pespective.
As a comsequence, I will just make a huge effort to express which is the top 50 gaming experiences I had, taking in consideration the fun I had while playing them and the love and cherish with which I still embrace them in my gamer loving heart.
50# Wii Sports
Who could ever say that behind such a simple concept could we find so much fun! It is one of the little games I could share with lots of relatives and friends who are not fond of vg and helped me explain why I love them so much.
49# The Secret of Monkey Island (1990)
This game proved to me that gaming could be all about laughing as Resident Evil proved to me that you could get legit scared out of a game. Hooray for the great times, Monkey Island!
#48 Sonic & Knuckles
My favourite Sonic platformer ever. It was an outstanding and frenetic game that forced me, a radical Nintendo fanboy at the time, to recognize that Sonic could be damn sexy. Sorry Mario.
#47 Dig Dug
The game that got me into gaming. Wow, it was so addictive. I am not a retro gamer of sorts, I couldn't quite enjoy it today, but at that time it blew my mind away. Thanks Dig Dug!!
#46 Super Street Fighter
The first fighting game I relatively dominated. I was never really good at the genre but that didn't stop me at all from enjoying it. Super Street Fighter for the SNES kept me trying to improve so I could kick my friends asses!!
#45 Blast Corps
Out of the box thinking is something that you don't see every day. Non in games nor in any other form of entertainment. When it happens, I just value it because of the effort involved, because of the courage it takes, regardless if the product was good or not. But when it also delivers huge tons of fun, you can hardly ask for more. Blast Corps was a game that intriguided me before its release and that surprised me when I couldn't put it down. Awesome game!
The first game I ever beated. Or at least that I was concious about it. I may have finished Super Mario Bros first.. Oh yeah, when you ended up that one you had to start all over again, which I never did. Any way, Contra... Multiplayer mayhem. Macho alien killing. Me and my brother. Good times.
Tah-tah-tah-tah! Die you bastard!
#43 Final Fantasy XIII
March 2010 - I hadn't played a regular Final Fantasy since IX. I had missed the whole PS2 generation and I didn't really regret eventhough Final Fantasy VII and VIII were two of my stronger gaming experiences. I read all the critics, the many harsh ones, the few enthusiastic ones. I knew about the missing towns, how repetitive and linear it was... "I better stick waiting for Tales of Graces and Xenoblade" I thought and bought GoW III. Well, I don't intend to say I should have done the other way around, cause I eventually bought XIII and learnt that, regardless the reviews, regardless the polemic inclusions and exclusions, regardless of if it was too linear or not, regardless of it all, I had one of the best gaming experiences of the year with it. My expectations were low, really low. I didn't expect anything out of it. And that might have been what allowed me to be awed and entertained, what allowed me to have fun and to love those characters too: enjoying what you are being offered instead of spoiling it because you were too busy bitching for not being given what you wanted to.
#42 Prince of Persia
It became an obsession just as soon as I first played it till long before I finished it. Its animations were top notch at the time and it looked as a very mature game. I have the fondest memories of it. Platforming and puzzle at its best.
#41 No More Heroes
This game is so flawed!! Its sandbox elements suck. It is short and if you get the good ending in your first playthrough, as I did, there's no real need to replay it. In my first 15 minutes, I didn't like its graphics, the retro atmosphere took me by surprise and I just didn't like it neither, its combat system seemed way oversimplistic. And there you go. It made it to my top 50. Why is that? Because, after those initial bitterweet 15 minutes and only for a few but very rewarding hours, it took me on a time travel to my childhood, it made me laugh my ass out and I never quitted to feel excited to find out what crazy bastard was next in line. Hilarious crazy fun!
#40 Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock
This was my first Guitar Hero experience. And you could argue that others have got better line ups or the download capability. Rock Band is also out there with all those other instruments, even though later Guitar Hero iterations copycat them. The thing was the magic lamp that GHIII allowed me to accomplish a lifetime dream: play guitar and rock! With the other games I just felt I was playing a game, good but nevertheless, there was no new experience, just new songs to memorize. And none other kept me for more than 100 hours playing alone to improve my skill or partying with friends and brothers.
Utopian books as Brave New World and 1984, so political in their contents, always capture my heart, mind and soul. Bioethic topics and genetic manipulation both amaze and frighten me, just as the nuclear bombs did decades ago to generations of peope. So its no wonder that Bioshock makes it to my list considering that takes many of this elements and masterfuly relates a story and manages to provide a different and joyful FPS experience at the same time. Little games out there are so immersive, make you think about ethics and politics and let you enjoy through the ruins of a utopian experiment gone wrong.
#38 Mortal Kombat 2
#37 International SuperStar Soccer Deluxe
#36 Acme All Stars
#35 Valkyria Chronicles
DAMMIT MAN! I WAS JUST ABOUT TO START THIS THREAD UNDER THE TITLE *The Greatest Of All Time-Conegamer's VideoGames awards* (If you see this thread then please ignore it or delete it :( )
So...I have my list, so I'm in! When do you want me to post it?
Once again, DAMN YOU!
