Yay!

It starts again! I hope there’s going to be lots of stories of their favorite games from everyone for me to read, because I like to read. Here’s to another great Greatest Games Edition.

#50: Maybe I shouldn’t bother with this one, because Veknoid knows, but here goes; In this obscure granddaddy of shooter games, what’s just a tree in Europe is a futuristic steel pyramid in the US. If the boxarts are to be believed anyway because who knows.

I try to write up something for my games, so you have to read something.

And the first hint is so hard, I have no idea.

Thank you.

As this is already the first day, we have to gain some ground here, so I drop hints for the first three games at once:

#50: Turn-based or real-time? I can't decide in this newest entry in the series.
#49: Six degrees of freedom!
#48: Build towers out of people.

Why you will not convince me I have chosen bad consoles. / awesome Miiverse art / my greatest games list

Bet with platformmaster918 and ethomaz about PS3 overtaking Wii in total sales.

Predictions: Switch / Switch / Switch / MHWorld / GOW > BOTW / Switch vs. XB1 in the US

I've ranked every game I've ever played, at over 350 at the moment. I feel like I've got a problem haha

The order of my top 50 troubled me a bit, but I'm happy with how I've got it.

My #50 is BOTW. It's the only Zelda game in my top 150. Further, it's the only one I've ever really enjoyed. A grand adventure, by no means perfect, but definitely great.

I don't know if I can hint at my next few without giving them away, but I'll give it a give it a go
46th Catch monsters, with a side trip to the shadow realm
47th The best selling PC game of all-time goes portable for the first time
48th The child of XCOM and chess
49th Fictional Europe military Strategy RPG

Correct on #46, but not the other two.

I guess I'll do the hints this year as well. I already posted my #50 (The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II), so i'll give the hints for the next three games.

49: After Drakengard but before Automata.

48: Fulfilling a dying man's dream.

47: Link and a time thing, something about a dark world and sages too.

I guess I should also write a little about my #50 and why it's on the list.

#50
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II

The Legend of Heroes-series kinda took me by surprise a few years back when I bought the first Trails in the Sky game on Steam. I didn't really think much of it at the time, other than it looked like it might be a fun little game to play. Since then I've played four different games in the franchise, and all of them are in my top 50 games of all time. It's quite safe to say that I never expected these games to have such a huge impact on me. Trails of Cold Steel II is the lowest game of the four, but it's still a wonderful title with great characters and story, good soundtrack, and an excellent battle system. I really hope the next two games in the series are going to come to the west soon as well. Since finishing this game they've been at the top of my most wanted games list and are going to remain there until they do make their way here.

I’m playing a game now that might break the top 50 so I may be late in my participation. Love the hints so far!
