Last chance for game #31:

#31

a) The king becomes consumed by the rot.

b) The tribes try to take control from the king and compete with each other.

c) This indie game is basically a tabletop game with cards and dice realized as a computer-game.

d) Play a character from the Wolf-clan, Rat-clan, Rabbit-clan or Bear-clan fighting for the throne.

31 is Armello?

And Final Fantasy X had with Blitzball the probably best minigame ever in a RPG. I had a lot of fun just playing Blitzball. Once I learned how to be good at it.

It's funny you mention Blitzball, because a lot of how I rank Final Fantasy games has to do with their option content like Mini-games and post game content.  I know at one point I went through FFX and played as much Blitzball as I possibly could.  I do remember that being one of the best parts of the game.

Also, I really love this game because of Auron.  He's one of my favorite FF characters.  

#31 is indeed Armello. Good, it was guessed before I post it.

And yes, Blitzball was great. I wouldn't mind too much this being a game itself. But embedded into the story and gameplay of FFX it obviously is even better. And yeah, Auron is cool.

The answers were Rollercoaster Tycoon and Double Dragon (you were right on that one).  Both were guessed very quickly by S.Peelman.

Positions #50 - #46: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=9080521

Now, the next 5 games

#45 Tales of Graces f

This game has one of the best action combat systems in any J-RPG I've ever played, everything about it is very tightly designed and it just feels amazing to battle in this  game. The character growth system based on leveling up "titles" is also super satisfying and the weapon synthetizing system, named "dualizing", is incredibly deep. Another aspect where this game shines are the character interactions, mainly thanks to the "skits", which are little conversations between the characters that you can trigger as you advance  through the story; these "skits" are a staple of the Tales series and they are particularly good in this game.

#44 Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

This collaboration between Square and Nintendo was an amazing gift for both Mario and RPG lovers: the fun battle system, the characters, the humor, the OST, the visuals, everything comes together to make this game a fantastic experience. Regarding the characters, they're very charming and I love that you can play as Peach and Bowser. The battle system requires some timing to deal extra damage to enemies and, even if its a little bit simple, ít's still really fun and more dynamic than many other turn-based battle systems of that time.

#43 Tales of Symphonia

While this game has been surpassed by its successors in many aspects, it's still a very good overall package (sometimes better as an overall package than some of the other Tales games that surpassed it only in specific aspects). The characters are likeable and have really nice interactions that flesh them out, and the plot is engaging even if a little bit basic. An aspect that is particularly good in this game are the dungeons, which actually have puzzles in them (unlike most JRPGs) and are (mostly) well designed.

#42 The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

This game has a very tightly designed overworld, with a great amount of content and secrets to discover, which help to give it a great sense of discovery, even if the game isn't necessarily full open world like the first Zelda. The idea of having two "worlds", the Light World and the Dark World, helps to give more complexity to the overworld. The dungeons are very well designed and the boss battles are fun. The soundtrack is memorable and the visuals have aged very very well.

#41 Devil May Cry 3

DMC3 got one of the most exhilarating battle systems in any game I've ever played, it's super fast paced and overall it's just a pleasure to control Dante. However, the main reason this game's combat system shines is because of how technical it is, mainly thanks to the "Styles" system. Each "Style" determines which movements outside of normal short/long-ranged attacks you can perform in battle, and they allow you to defeat enemies in different ways. Mindless button-mashing is not an option here, as the bosses and even the regular enemies pose a significant threat, so you have to be careful with what you do in battle. The boss battle design is top notch and the level design is overall good. Also, Dante is the hottest male protagonist ever :P

P.S. I forgot to give some honorable mentions in my previous post:

#51 World of Final Fantasy

#52 Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

#53 Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance

#54 Ratchet & Clank (2016)

#55 Sonic Generations

#56 God of War III

#57 Pokémon Emerald

#58 God of War II

#59 Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction

#60 Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

#31 Armello
guessed by The_Liquid_Laser
platform Linux/Switch
release year 2015
developer/publisher League of Geeks
genre turn-based board game
links Wikipedia
past years 2018: #37

Armello is a nice little indie surprise. In it's core it is a board game which look like it could work without a computer at all. But with a computer it is all a lot nicer. You move your figure over the hex-tiled randomly generated map of the kingdom and try to solve quests, defeat banes and your competitors, find gold and useful items and ultimately challenge the king.

The plot is simple: the king is corrupted by the rot and four clans compete to take over the crown. There are four ways to win: cleanse the rot with spirit stones, become corrupted by rot yourself but stronger than the king and defeat him in a rot duel (this is actually quite challenging because of the rules for rot), defeat the king in a normal fight or if none of the players manages one of the above conditions until the king dies, the player with the highest prestige wins.

The game is quite challenging, you often have to think about the best course of action. Also everything is pretty well tuned, every card, every quest, everything matters, it is not that you can concentrate on one thing as it outshines everything else.

Last year I had some issues with the Switch version, which is why I listed only the PC-version. But these issues were gone for me, so it seems they are fixed and I now can wholeheartedly also recommend the Switch version. The game is out on pretty much every platform. It also has gotten some DLC extensions, which expand the fun. Give it a try.

One of the first computer games I ever played, was also one of the best ones I ever played. 'SimTower' was one of the couple of games my stepfather brought home along with our first computer; an Apple Performa Macintosh. This game was pretty popular around the house because of it's accessible nature. The objective is to build a tower floor by floor while it's operational and stay financially healthy, until you reach the 100th floor. Easier said than done, because for one 'hundred' is a lot and managing your economy can become a mild challenge. You get money every morning, when people pay their taxes and rent. Most of the time, we'd leave the computer on, with the sound turned up, when we'd go downstairs for our evening meal, and hear the money roll in.
