"I could make Halo. It's not that I couldn't design that game. It's just that I choose not to. One thing about my game design is that I never try to look for what people want and then try to make that game design." - Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto

I have a hard time narrowing my all-time greatest games down to under 30 titles, much less 5. I don't have the slightest idea where to start.

that will never, ever happen.  If you want chrono trigger get it on the SNES prefferably, but it is also on PS1 bundled with FF4. 

currently playing: Skyward Sword, Mario Sunshine, Xenoblade Chronicles X

top 5 thats real hard but i'm gonna go with...

final fantasy 3
chrono trigger
zelda ocarina of time
super mario 64

give a few honorable mentions that are very close to top 5: final fantasy 2, tetris, secret of mana, super mario bros 3 and for good measure a pc game: command & conquer red alert

end of '08 predictions: wii - 43 million,  360 - 25 million, ps3 - 20 million
