#24) Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando (PS2)

I don't always like 3D platformers, but when I do, chances are they have a huge-ass arsenal of delectably destructive weaponry.

#23) The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (SNES/GBA/Wii)

A Link to the Past is great. The grass is also green and homosexuals are gay. I should be sorting out my fucked up sleep pattern right now, not doing this.

#22 Wipeout HD played on PS3, released 2008

A great game to get in a trance like state and rely purely on muscle memory to do perfect lap after perfect lap. I have to admit I never liked the weapon aspect of wipeout and as in all wipeout games I completed the wipeout HD campaign without firing a single weapon. Time trial, speed lap and the hypnotic zone mode is where it's at for me.

The best way to play this game is in first person with the view tilting sideways in the corners.  The crisp 1080p60 visuals look amazing while playing it on a 92" screen. Most games can't hide all the shortcuts they make blown up to that size, yet wipeout HD looks solid all the way through with great lighting as well.

It's not the perfect wipeout yet though. The tracks, although beautiful to behold, can't hide that they were originally conceived on the psp. And unfortunately the expansion focussed too much on combat for me. Also although the music is good, I still prefer the soundtrack of 2097.

Not that all that matters much. The game is comfortably sitting on the hhd to be booted up now and then for a few speed laps or some zone mode goodness. With almost instant race restarts it is the most enjoyable game for a few quick plays now and then.

Hopefully we'll see a wipeout game purely designed for console again featuring tracks with crazy jumps and incredible view distance. Or port 2097's tracks over to HD for an expansion.


23. Diablo II - Lord of Destruction (PC)

Probably the best PC game ever made.

22. Kingdom Hearts (PS2)

I loved it, although I hated some of the disney characters.

#22 - Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition (PS3/360/PC)

I half love, half hate this game. It's easily the most flawed game in my top 50. I think it's ugly, it's buggy, the third person camera is laughable, it's poorly balanced, the FPS gameplay is fundamentally broken and it's most definitely overrated... but I still think it's a really great game, and I've appreciated it more since its release. I love the way you can so easily get side-tracked, even if you've set your mind to a specific task. It's fun to explore (and, honestly, I usually kinda hate 'exploring') because every location offers something new and interesting, and unexplored nooks and crannies in the wilderness reveal little gems (metaphorically speaking).

I specifically chose Game of the Year Edition because the DLC packs are pretty great (though mostly not worth the asking price if bought separately). I particularly loved Mothership Zeta.

22. Beyond Good & Evil HD (PS3)

I've played a fair few Ubisoft games, some have been horrible wastes of potential, and some have just been plain horrible. But here we have what may well be the only example of them getting it right, and even then they almost messed it up with the final boss and the randomly reversed controls. I can forgive that though, because the game up to that point was brilliant. I'd initially been looking forward to playing it on the Gamecube, but I didn't buy it for some reason which I can't remember, and then a little while later I stopped gaming for a couple of years until the Wii launched. So it was that I didn't finally play it until it was released on PSN earlier this year, and I'm glad I finally got to play it.

Would I just ruin the balance if I came in now (starting at #50)?

If you feel up to it... why not!

Signature goes here!


Of all the outstanding Tales game this was easily the best of them even though main character was unlikable.

Super Mario World is my 22, though i initially played this game only on Game Boy Advance, it really made an impression on me

Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

I actually waited a full year for this edition, if I bought the DLC at full price it costs more then the game, one of the DLC is actually the ending to the main game. I loved Broken Steel and the one where you have to get Steel Ingots.

Waiting for the Fallout: New Vegas Ultimate Edition this february.
