Thanks Outlaw. ^_^

Also, I'm done with accepting lists starting tonight. It's time to move on and get this party started!

I appreciate you holding up for me. I wanted to do something special for my list and ended up just spitting out that.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Wii / Nintendo / 2011
A special congratulations to AshKetchum1992 for the amazing guess.

I can't possibly think of a videogame that has ever come even close to making me feel like this one did. A lot of people hate this game for certain reasons, and sometimes I can even understand that - unlike a few others below on my list, this is a flawed game and it does fail to deliver some things people expect from titles in this franchise. But they never really stood out as problems for me. Instead, I accepted and understood the game for what it was, and what came out of it was easily the most memorable experience I've had in gaming.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword made me feel immersed and engaged with a videogame world and story unlike anything else I've ever played. The gameplay with the motion controls was extremely fun, creative and precise while also allowing for a lot of immersion and it truly made me feel inside the game; the story was extremely well written and from start to finish it was absolutely perfect and made me feel extremely passionate about every character on the cast; and the level design, particularly the dungeons, was absolutely amazing and easily the best I've seen in Zelda yet. Most bosses in the game are also very good (with Koloktos standing out as the best boss battle in the franchise), the soundtrack is incredible, the graphics are very pretty especially considering it's a Wii game, and the amount of content is huge.

There's really nothing I can complain about with this game. Through it's extremely fun gameplay, very engaging story and great characters, immersive motion controls, fantastic music, great looking visuals, a ridiculous amount of stuff to do that never gets boring or old... it has it all. Skyward Sword is absolute perfection in my eyes, and I am very skeptical about it ever leaving this spot as my favorite game ever. I can't praise it high enough.

Whew, I'm finally done. Sorry for the little flood here, but I had to do it (and I barely had enough time too).

Also, thanks for all the hard work, Smeags!



Welp, I'm doing a top 500. @_@

And here are your bottom 3 (tied in last place):

498 Actraiser
498 Dragon Age II
498 Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

Probably should be have tiebreakers...

Good luck with tallying it all up anyways.

401-498 is a bit crowded with ties, but for the most part the next 400 are tie free. It just gets messy around the 500 mark, which is why I stopped there.

And yeah, this'll take some time. @_@

Ah, another person with Zelda: OoT as number... wait a minute, is that a typo? That's not OoT!

*pleasant shock*

Ocarina of Time only barely makes it in my top 5 Zeldas

And even if it stays there, it won't be for too long considering there's a better one coming out this year.
