50: Gotcha Force- GC

Ah such sweet memories with this game being my first gamecube game doesn't hurt either to. Simple beat-um up gameplay mixed with a great varity of borgs to choose from with diffrent styles to fight with from close-up to gunners to gaint robots to tanks to aircrafts to superheros to support to dragons to airships to suicide bombers and so on.

49: Vectorman- GEN

Ah what a great game with sonic and echo make up my childhood gaming. What to say about this game other then it was extremly fun to play and kept me coming back for more. I wished it's sequal could of made me say the same about it, but sadly it was a dissapointment.


48: Muscle March- WiiWare

A game about jacked men, a jacked women and a jacked polar bear all chasing around random things that stole their muscle powder. The gameplay was simple with four diffrent style motions but gets crazy hard towards the end of each. The music is great to say the least with it being all in Japanese with a  few exceptions of words in each. And Jacked Polar Bear > All

47: Deathspank- XBL

Deathspank has been a Dispenser of Justice, a Vanquisher of Evil, and a Hero to the Downtrodden. This game you play as Deathspank on his search for the artifact which he doesn't know what it is, what it does, where it is or even what it looks like. Throughout this game you experience extreme laughter from the well written dialog.  Some missions include finding kidnapped orphans and stuffing them into a bag, becoming a dad for a day, solve marriage problems, beat poop out of demons, massacre a leprechaun village  and killing a monks and their town cause their bell is annoying and many more! Only ending on a hanger maybe we will see him again on this list....

46: Monster Rancher Advance 2- GBA

Ahh who doesn't love a game where you push animals to their limits with harsh training each day? Well this game did that after getting your monster by putting random words into a tablet to summon them you get to train them. Over time I really felt attached to my monsters but sadly this game also taught me a life lesson with age you weaken. It hurt that I couldn't train with my monsters anymore the only postive thing was being able to make them coachs for my new ones. Really fun gameplay with intresting styles of fighting for each opponent depending on their speed attack and so on. I still miss you UltraDragon you were a great friend. T_T

45: Sonic the Hedgehog- GEN

The first of four sonics on this list has appeared! Of course I can't start off this list with out where it all began 2 years before my birth with the orignal! Before all those friends showed up there was only one talking animal who knew two things who to run fast and who to kick some tail. Really not much to say about this game except it is amazing and never say other or else!

Former something....

50. Need for Speed: Most Wanted (PC)

A fun arcade racer that feels like an action packed Hollywood movie, with cool cinematic sequences, fast cars and hot chicks. I enjoyed it even though I'm not into all that (the fast cars that is, not the hot chicks which I always enjoy ).


49. Portal (PC)

"The cake is a lie! The cake is a lie!" Portal's  fun first-person puzzle satire of video games that has witty dialogue (more like monologue), cool innovative gameplay, and a creepy/funny/awsome villain.


48. Mass Effect (PC)

The team over at BioWare are true masters of RPGs, and Mass Effect continues their streak of high quality games. Granted, it may not be their best effort (though even "all right" BioWare games are still better than most of the other games out there), but this epic (albeit cliche) space opera is probably one of the best written Action RPGs out there.


47. Mario Kart DS (DS)

"Itsa me, mario!" ... And this time he's kart racing with his friends. Mario Kart DS is a nifty little game on a nifty little handheld. Fun gameplay, cool tracks, and very good multiplayer (if only any of my friends owned a DS ).


46. Ico (PS2)

Ico is a weird little game. Probably the first "artsy" game I ever played. However it manages not to seem over pretentious as one such game might end up being. It's simple, unique, charming, and has an amazing box art.


45. Nintendogs (DS)

Puppies!!! What's not to love???!!! Nintendogs was the first DS game I ever played (it came bundled with my DS), but I became interested in it ever sincer I first heard of it's existence. The game makes perfect use of the DS's capabilities, offering a truly unique experience. It gets boring after a while but the puppies are always cute to look at when I'm bored.


44. Professor Layton and the Lost Future (DS)

Third time's the charm . I love the Professor Layton series, and the third game is probably the best in the series so far, with great puzzles, an unusual mystery, an amazing story (which is touching and sentimental at times) and of course time traveling!!!


43. Age of Empires (PC)

The very first strategy game I ever played, and one with which I instantly fell in love. The game was meant to be a mix between Civilization and Warcraft, and while it didn't do this as good as it's predecessor, it still ended up being a pretty awsome game (which really brings back fun memories).


42. Super Mario Bros. (NES)

The very first game I ever playes (and one of the few NES games I ever owned), Super Mario Bros. was not a game I instantly fell in love with. I pretty much sucked at it. I really got into Mario games much later, however having given this game another go not too long ago I found it charming and fun to play more than 2 decade after it's release.


41. The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (DS)

I was excited to play this game ever since it was announced, and it sure didn't disappoint. Using The Wind Waker's art style and the DS's technology (touch screen, mic), Phantom Hourglass offers a fresh and exciting handheld Zelda experience.

40. Gears of War (PC)

While I'm not a huge fan of extremely violent gory games, Gears of War caught my attention imediately after viewing some gameplay videos of it. The game may be somewhat monochromatic, but it's appropriate considering the atmosphere the developer's were aiming at. It looks gorgeous (from both a atechincal and artistic point of view), and the gameplay's awsome.


39. StarCraft (PC)

Probably the most popular strategy game of all time, StarCraft surprisingly holds up well even today (well over a decade after it's release). Great universe, cool diverse factions, solid gameplay and awsome online multiplayer make StarCraft a timeless classic.


38. Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga (GBA)

One of the first GBA games I ever played, and my very first Mario RPG, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga impressed me right from the start. Overall a fun experience, with all the charm you'd expect from a Mario adventure.


37. Ratchet & Clank 3 (PS2)

This was the first PS2 game I ever played, and the first (and so far only) Ratchet & Clank game I've played. The writing is sharp and funny, and the mix between platforming and shooting (from a third-person perspective) makes for a fun and unique game to play. You'll feel just like you're playing a Pixar animation.


36. Final Fantasy XII (PS2)

Despite being hated by a lot of fans of the series, I found Final Fantasy XII to be a quite an amazing game. The art style is probably the very best of the series, the graphics is amazing (for PS2 game) and the gameplay is interesting and innovative. I liked the fact that there was no melodramatic love story, and I only wish Vaan and Penelo had been omitted from the game. And I also love the box art (especially the US one ).


35. Psychonauts (PC)

Tim Schafer is a funny man, well known for funny games. Psychonauts is no different. It's a hilarious game with funny and charming characters. The whole concept of going into people's minds kinds seems similar to Inception (though in Nolan's movie you go into people's dreams, while in Psychonauts you go into people's minds). The platofrming is nice (though not the best out there), and the atmosphere is simply amazing.


34. The Sims (PC)

I have very fond gaming memories of The Sims. Creating my character, creatin equivalents for all my friends and family, coming up with funny scenarios for them, making my cousin eat food 'till she became obese... Ah, I loved that game and probably spent hundreds of hours playing it. The franchsie may have lost most of it's magic, but this game will always hold a special place in my heart.


33. Castlevania (GBA)

Also known as Castlevania: Circle of the Moon outside of Europe, this was the very first GBA game I ever played. I loved the atmosphere, the whole vampire hunter theme, the gameplay (platforming, magic powers etc.), and the sweet boss fights. The title sequence was also impressive. Overall a great game.


32. New Super Mario Bros. (DS)

This game is almost my favorite DS game, and by far my favorite handheld Mario. The gameplay is 2D platfroming awsomeness, the art style's great, and the level design and the world's are overall amazing.


31. Heroes of Might and Magic III: The Restoration of Erathia (PC)

I loved this game. I loved it a whole lot, and I still love it. By far my favorite turn-based strategy game ever. The factions where awsome, the story was good, and the whole game had a boardgame feel to it. I spent dozens of hours playing this on multiplayer with my friends, and we still play it on hoteseat sometimes.


30. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (PC)

Now I'm not too big on violence and I hate criminals, but that didn't stop me from loving Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The gameplays' awsome, and has elements from severl types of genres (third person shooter, racing game, rhythm game, dating sim etc.). The game's huge with loads of things to do, making it very hard to get bored. And to top it all off the story's simply hirarious.


29. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (N64)

This game had very big shoes to fill, and it did so admirably. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask had a lot of cool gameplay elements and design decision, the most interesting of which being the fact that you had only a 3 day cycle to finish the game (you could rewind time of course). This added challenge to the game. The story was also very interesting, and though it lacked the feelng of the epic quest to save the world that other Zelda games have, Majora's Mask is probably the most original anddark game in the series.


28. Half-Life 2 (PC)

When I saw the amazing critical reception Half-Life 2 was getting, I just had to buy it. While I only played a little bit of the first Half-Life, and did not enoy it that much, the second one was leaps and bounds better. While I;m not a huge FPS fan, I really enjoyed this game. The story was surprisingly good for a FPS, the art direction was amazing, really making you feel like you're in a dystopian world. The gameplay is awsome, mainly due to the gravity gun, and the ending s really cool when you be come way overpowered. A great game overall.


27. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (PC)

I do not like military shooters. I do not like war, and military shooters often seem like they're glorifying war and are military propaganda. Not to mention that it's overall a pretty generic subgenre of shooters. However, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was special. Maybe it was the fact that it's setting was fresh at the time (most such games had a WWII setting). Maybe it was the over the top gameplay. Maybe it was the James Bond atmosphere. Anyways, whatever it was, I really really liked this game. I even gave the online multiplayer a shot (though I don't usually do that), and although I sucked at it, I still had fun.


26. Metroid Fusion (GBA)

Metorid Fusion is most definaely my favorite GBA game ever! It was also the very first Metorid game I ever played. All I can't say is that I imediately realised why this series is so popular. The gameplay is simply amazing, and very very fun. From what I've noticed this game is more liniar than the other entries in the series, but I didn't find that to be an impediment at all.


25. Diablo II (PC)

My very first RPG, Diablo II was just awsome. 4 different and unique classes, great music and cutscenes, and all the  hacking and slashing one could want from a game. 10 years after it's release it's still a jouy to play.


24. Tomb Raider (PC)

Originally meant to star a guy and be an Indiana Jones type game, the developers decided to be more original (and pervy), and made the main character a smart big boobed heroin, who can kick bad guy's asses. None of the other entries in the series managed to reach the wow factor of the original.


23. Fallout 3 (PC)

Fallout 3 was a game I was highly anticipating before it's release, and I sure wasn't disappointed with it.  I could never get into the previous Fallout games (they haven't aged well), but focus on action gameplay really suited the game well (the V.A.T.S. system was probably the main gameplay attraction). I (of course) just loved the post apolayptic setting, and the story overall.


22. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (PC)

Despite not liking games/movies/books who focus on criminals, there was something about GTA: Vice City which drew me in. Maybe it was the funny story. Maybe it was the fabulous city. Maybe it was the 80s music. Or, maybe it was that unique feeling when you bang a hooker for the first time, run her over with your car and then get your money back. Ah, good times!


21. Okami (PS2)

It may look like a mere Zelda clone, but Okami manages to rise up to the quality that you'd expect from the best of Zeldas. The art style is unique and wonderful, the music is amazing, the story brings some insight into Japanese mythology and the gameplay (celestial brush technique mainly) is very innovative (did something you'd expect from a Wii game). One of the most charming games ever! Such a shame it sold so poorly.


20. Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos (PC)

When I first saw this game I was simply amazed. With such amazing 3D graphics (which I never thought at the time that a strategy game could have), the ability to zoom in, and those movie-like cutscenes, it's not hard to see why I was blown away by the game's presentation. I just loved the different factions, the story was surprizingly good, and the multiplayer was sweet (though I didn't spend too much time with it). It was probably the last startegy game that managed to truly get me hooked.


19. Shadow of the Colossus (PS2)

The prequel to Ico, Shadow of the Colossus was just as unique, and overall a much much better experience. The game is esentially one boss battle after the other, but that actually makes the game awsome. The art style is amazing, the music is lovely, and despite no dialogue you really do get attatched to your character and his horse. You gotta love those hairy beasts too!


18. Final Fantasy X (PS2)

Final Fantasy X was the first game in the series to have full 3D graphics and voice acting. On the graphics front the game was amazing for it's time. It was simply drop dead gorgeous. The gameplay is some of the best in the series, the music is amazing, and the story is very intersting, with lots of cool twists and a bold and moving ending. The one negative aspect of this game is probably the terrible terrible voice acting and the bad character animations during dialogue. An amazing game regardless though.


17. Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings (PC)

My favorite strategy game ever! An amazing historical setting, a great story (especially for a strategy game), 13 playable civilizations, cool multiplayer and a good map creator had me playing this baby for hundreds of hours. Ah, if only a modern strategy game could captivate me as much as this one...


16. Pokemon Gold and Silver (GBC)

Probably the best sequel in the franchise, Pokemon Gold and Silver (I had Silver) added improved (and colored) graphics, cool gameplay features and improvements (no more overpoered psychic type), plus a whopping 16 (!) badges, making this probably the longest game in the series.


15. God of War II (PS2)

The second God of War game was also probably the last PS2 game to really wow me. The graphics were amazing (considering the hardware, and despite the tricks used), the story was epic and the gameplay was just simply awsome with brutally over the top combat and lots of gore (I don't care that much for gore, but I didn't mind it, being overwhelemd by this game's awsomeness). The sex minigame was also cool.


14. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (PC)

Oblivion was the very first current gen game I played and also my first Elder Scrolls game. I was blown away by the amazing graphics and the sheer size of the game. The score is epic, the story wasn't perfect, but the sidequests were some of the best I've ever seen in a RPG. The scene when you first exit the sewers is simply epic, and probably the most impressive scene I've seen in a video game this gen. The almost 200 hours I spent played this game were well worh it.


13. GoldenEye 007 (N64)

One of the best licensed games ever, and the first awsome FPS for consoles, GoldenEye 007 was simply a blast. Amazing grahics (for it's time), revolutionary gameplay (especially loved the objective based gameplay, and how the difficulty settings worked) and addictive 4 player split screen multiplayer. The only thing that was missing was the theme song by Tine Turner.


12. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (PC)

This is one game who simply blew me away the moment I set my eyes on. The graphipcs was simply mind-blowing and the art style was simply beautful. The writing was good and the characters were simply charming (the Prnce and Farah are one of the best video game couples). The gameplay was amazing, and I found the whole rewinding time mechanism interesting considering the game's story dominated by the theme of redemption. The only complaint I have about this game is that it was very short, but this is clearly a case where quality >quantity.


11. Final Fantasy IX (PS)

This was not the first Final Fantasy I played, but it was the first I managed to complete. While it's not the most popular game in the series amongst gamers, I personally found Final Fantasy IX to be simply amazing. I loved had an old school feel to it, bringing the series back to a medieval fantasy-like setting, and characters who actually have classes. The cartoony characters were charming, and the art style was actually good this time round, unlike the other PS1 Final Fantasy games. The whole game felt like a Disney animation.


10. Halo: Combat Evolved (PC)

Halo was is essentially like playing a very good action game. The gameplay is awsome and the music is epic and really gets your adrenaline pumping. The multiplayer is fun and addictive, and the singleplayer campaign is one of the best out there. Amazing game overall.


9. Pokemon Red and Blue (GB)

My first interaction with the Pokemon universe was with the anime, which was massively popular over here when it first came out. When I found out that there was also a Pokemon video game I immediately did everything in my power to get my hands on it. It was magical, simply magical.


8. God Of War (PS2)

All my life I wanted to play a good action/adventrue game set in a mythical Greek setting, so when I saw God of War I just had to play it. Amazing gameplay? Check! Amazing audio (sound, music, voice acting)? Check! Amazing graphics and art stule? Check! Great story? Check! Cinematic feeling? Check! Sex minigame? Check!!!


7. BioShock (PC)

My favorite FPS ever! BioShock is definately not your conventional Shooter. The story is surprisingly ambitious, trying to explore political and ethical issues. The art style is amazing and the setting is unique. The audio is amazing from any POV possible. To top all that off the game has a polt twist which is both an ode to System Shock 2 (a game to which BioShock is considered a spiritual successor), but also wittingly makes fun of video games. A very classy game indeed.


6. Chrono Trigger (DS)

My personal favorite DS game ever, and also my personal favorite JRPG. A simply charming game that I played for the very first time last year and was simply amazed at how well it holds up, despite being almost a decade and a half old. The characters are charming and lovable, the story is good, the music is awsome, and so is the art style. The gameplay was very revolutionary, with fast paced batlles, allowing you to avoid random encounters, and giving you the opportunity to use stealth sometimes and make decisions that influence the game's ending. Way ahead of it's time, and blows any Final Fantasy out of the water.


5. Super Mario 64 (N64)

Mario's first 3D outing was a sweet one. Fun gameplay, charming graphics and art style, and memorable music. The first really great 2D to 3D transition,and definately one of the best. All that was missing was Luigi.


4. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (PC)

For some strange reason I wasn't very interested in this game when I first heard of it's existence. I was certainly a fool, as once I played finally got around to playing it, KotOR instantly became my favorite RPG ever! This game perfectly captures the whole Star Wars charm, sending you on an epic quest to save the galaxy from the dark side, not without twists and turns on your way to victory. The story is simply amazing, and IMHO superior to even the original Star Wars trilogy. Definately a Star Wars fan's dream come true, and definately how you should make a good licensed game.


3. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 (PC)

I'm not a big fan of sports games, so it's actually quite funny that the only such game on my list lands in such a high spot. There was a time when Tony Hawk games used to be good, and Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 was most definately the best game in the series. The amazing and fun gameplay set this skating game appart from more traditional sports games, offering a truly thrilling experience.


2. Resident Evil 4 (PS2)

Resident Evil 4 is a very polarising game. When it initially came out it was met with wide critical acclaim, but soon after annoying Resident Evil purists started hating on the game, there were no zombies in it and the game actually had ggod gameplay and was (gasp) fun!!! Disregarding them, I was blown away when I first layed eyes on a gameplay video of this game. The graphics were amazing (even though the version I played wasn't as visually impressive as the original GameCube one), and the camera angle truly revolutionised the TPS genre. While I did love Gears of War, this game was much cooler. As I said the gameplay is actually fun (considering this is a survival horror), and the boss fights are epic). The game may not be very scary, but I don't mind that as I don't like being scared. Oh, and surprisingly the voice acting is not that bad.


1. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64)

When a game recieves the type of acclaim this game has, you have certain expectations from it. It seldom happens that you finally play and say "it is that good", but in the case of Zelda Ocarina of Time it really is that good!

A guy who lived in my building had a N64 and got this game a couple of months after it came out. I heard him say how awsome it was, so I went to see what all the fuss was about. The game looked amazing, but he wouldn't let me play.

Fastforward a couple of years later when I buy his old N64 and a couple of the games he had left, including this one. I rush home happy that I could finally get to play this game (in the meantime I keep hearing about all the praise this game was recieving), while also being nervous that I'd fin the game outdated and that I missed my chance to really enjoy it fully. Luckily my fears turned out to be unfounded.

Other than the graphics, this game hardly seemed outdated when I played it then, and even today if I pop it in my ancient N64 I can still have a blast with it. Never have I seen a game that  feel like everything regarding it is just right. The art style, the musci, the story, the amazing revolutionary gameplay, there's simply nothing that's wrong with this game.

There's no feeling comparable to riding horseback on Hyrule field, exploring the game's world, fighting monsters in the dungeons, or defeating the game's epic bosses.

If there's one video game that deserves to be called a "timeless classic", making you feel nostalgia while you play it, while also seeming like it was released just yesterday, then this game is the one.

This gem never gets old, so bring on the 3DS remake Nintendo!

I'll join this sound like fun

EDIT: you guys never reminded me of the start date

Anyways, 50 games is impossible to choose as I easily listed over 70 games then had to cut it down and then arrange them in some "meaningful order". Anything in my top 50 is pretty much a great game, so here goes to listing 50 without wishing I reordered them all again

50) Vectorman (GEN) - Who didn't want to play to win $25k. Not that I ever had a shot, but this game was so much fun anways.

49) Super Mario Bros. 2 (NES) - The game that let you play as toad will always be one of my favorite games. The cast of badguys also needs to be revived just like the Koopa Kids were in NSMBWii.

48) The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (DS) - While the latest set of Zelda games haven't been the strongest this gets a special mention due to the awesome controls. The touch controls are just so easy to use and feel great. It was also a great continuation of Wind Waker which was a great game itself.

47) Mega Man 9 (WW) - Never owned any of the NES Mega Man games so this one gets the mention. I played 1-4 over at my friends, but never enough to get a great feel for them. This game was just brutal but awesome at the same time.

46) The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (GC) - While some hated this game because of the cell shading, I thought the graphics were great. This was the start of Zelda having too large an overworld. The only downside of this game was the long voyages across the sea really killing the gameplay.

45) Banjo-Kazooie (N64) - Easily one of the best 3D platformers out there. If it hadn't been for Mario 64 being the father of 3D platformers this game probably would take the top spot on the N64.

44) Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (GC) - While not a huge RPG fan this game was just great. It is easily accessible to anyone and has fun interactive enemy encounters. The story doesn't take itself too seriously and the game remains entertaining from beginning to end.

If you drop a PS3 right on top of a Wii, it would definitely defeat it. Not so sure about the Xbox360. - mancandy

wait- what?

PS One/2/p/3slim/Vita owner. I survived the Apocalyps3/Collaps3 and all I got was this lousy signature.

Xbox One: What are you doing Dave?

50. Super Smash Bros. Melee (GC) - Played this round a friends when it came out, and it blew me away. At the time, it was the best party game I had ever played. We played winner stays on since there were six of us and only four players each time, but every time we were knocked out, we couldn't wait for our turn to come along again!  8.4/10

49. ModNation Racers (PS3) - I remember watching the presentation at E3 2009 and thinking 'That's Genius!'. It was everything I wanted in a game for the PS3 and then some - a kart racing game with customisable everything! The actual racing, despite what some might say, is pretty damn good too. 8.4/10

48. Crash Twinsanity (PS2) - I know what you're thinking and I wouldn't blame you now if you thought I knew nothing about games. But this non-Naughty Dog Crash Bandicoot effort actually surprised me. The gameplay was as sharp as the first three Crash games, the graphics were good and the story was half decent for a Crash game - it was kind of epic in a weird sort of way. The fact that Cortex and Crash had to work along side eachother gave the game charm and the result was hilarious. It put them both in exciting situation that you would have never expected Crash to be in from the series' first three games, and this created exciting (although sometimes frustrating) gameplay. Damn whatever the cristics said about this, if you don't believe me that this is a very good platformer then try it out for yourself, you may just be surprised that it's not just an average cash-in of the good Crash name.   8.4/10

47. Burnout Legends (PSP) - The first Burnout game I ever played and, so far, the best. The driving is so smooth, the takedowns are so satisfying and the game as a whole is so rewarding. Definitely the most fun I've had on a PSP. 8.5/10

46. Toy Story 2 (PS1) - When I think of a video game, I think of this. Playing as the coolest character from a great, well known movie series in fun environments and responsive gameplay. Completing challenges was really fulfilling, collecting coins was very rewarding and you get to use Buzz's laser to defeat enemies! All of this combined made it one of the best games to spawn from a movie. 8.5/10

45. Soul Calibur IV (PS3) - I was disappointed at first. The character roster didn't add anyone interesting (especially Algol, the main boss - probably the worst and most generic boss character I've seen in any game, plus the Star Wars characters did nothing for me), the ending movies and dialogue were sooo cheesy and the gameplay hadn't really changed since the last Soul Calibur. However, the online play was awesome and there's no better feeling than beating the crap out of some punk-ass stranger on the other side of the world with a custom-made character for amusement (fighting as the Pope with Zasalamel's weapon and moves is hilarious, I highly recommend it!). The online play alone was a reason to get this game - I managed over 1,000 by the time I was done. 8.5/10

44. Everybody's Golf 2 (PSP) - I never thought I'd enjoy a golf games so much. I don't know what made me buy it at such a high price from PSN, but I'm glad I did in the end. Playing the game is simple, addictive and rewarding. Winning tournaments to receive new costumes, characters and courses quickly became an obsessession of mine that has lasted to this day. 8.6/10

43. Bust-A-Groove (PS1) - I was young when I got this game. I didn't have a clue how to play the game at first, but when I realised some months later I was amazed at how fun a rhythm game could be! The character design was fantastic (hence my user name and avatar) and each of them had their own dance moves, level and song - all with a lot of humour. Had some great memories with this game. 8.6/10

42. Final Fantasy XIII (PS3) - Okay, get this: XIII was the first Final Fantasy game I have ever played. I found it to be an enjoyable RPG, very clever gameplay mechanics. I didn't really understand the story and can't comment on the linearity since I have nothing to compare it with, but I found it to be a great experience overall. 8.6/10

41. Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle Cars (PSN) - Whaaat? How could I place this above FFXIII? It's actually quite hard trying to measure intense fun against the feeling of completing an epic story-driven game, but on those grounds I'd say SARPBC is a better game. Don't listen to what the critics say about this game, Cars Football = FUN! I've spent hours on split-screen on this game and whether I was playing my brother or one of my friends, the matches were always competitive awesomeness, whilst in the background some of my favourite tunes would be belted out at full volume on a custom playlist. A game that combines three of my loves: cars, football and music - how could it not be in my top 50? 8.6/10

40. inFamous (PS3) - I had to buy this game as soon as I knew the main character was a superhero who had power over electricity and could climb buildings at will. However, the game is nowhere near perfect: the missions were usually dull and repetetive, the graphics were usually well below par for a big PS3 exclusive and the main characters (including Cole) I found to be weak and forgettable at best. Having said that, once I finished the game I felt this strange sense of... something (there's no word for it, I swear!) that I've never felt with a game before and I couldn't wait for inFamous 2. The ending to the story completely blew my mind leading me to believe that this is the perfect example of a game that is better than the sum of its parts. 8.7/10

39. Need For Speed II: Special Edition (PC) - One of the first video games I ever remember playing and it blew me away. I had so much fun using a Mad Catz steering wheel to play this game on the only PC in the house and I used to hog it for hours. I loved cars - I enjoyed all the information and showcase videos included on the disc so much so that I probably spent more time looking at them than actually playing. This game is basically the reason I love racing games and continue to give the modern NFS series another chance flop after flop. 8.7/10

38. Twisted Metal 4 (PS1) - I don't care how many people say TM1, 2 and Black are the best in the series, I say this is (just to add to the shocking controversy, I would put 3 after it in the series). I love this game mostly due to the fact that it is one of the most fun multi-player games I have ever played - forget the story and sticking to the series' roots, who needs that? All I want to do is blow my friends to pieces, and blow AI to pieces with friends! Each map was imaginative with secret sections that you could barely remember how to get into, playing as the boss characters made the game so unfairly balanced it was ridiculous and the unlockable maps where you could actually destroy parts of the map were unbelievably fun - I actually feel 989 studios breathed some life into the series. 8.7/10

37. Grid (PS3) - Took me by surprise as I never really appreciated the Toca games on PS1/2. The best things about the game were the mashup gameplay which was a cross between simulator and arcade racers, the rewind feature where you could retake corners a limited number of times and how the career mode actually made you feel like a pro racer. A bit annoyed that I got the YLOD once I had reached the final race thus never fully completing the game. 8.8/10

36. Super Mario Strikers (GC) - Played this for the first time in an HMV store where it was playable. I was there for about two hours, playing back to back hilariously and brutally adorable football (soccer) matches and I'd never spent that long in any store before. Nuff said. 8.8/10

35. Uncharted: Drakes Fortune (PS3) - The game that made me open my eyes to what a good game actually is. It had everything: Gorgeous graphics of tropical environments, a decent story, likeable characters with funny dialogue, intense gunfights and the list goes on... Nathan Drake was a brilliant invention - a witty toughguy who everyone would want to have as their best mate. Naughty Dog started off their new IP perfectly and, although the game had a lot that they could build on (highlighted by its sequel), it was the first game I truly loved on the PS3. 8.9/10

34. FIFA 11 (PS3) - I knew I was going to pick a FIFA game for my list, and the latest entry happens to be the strongest. More features than ever before and the best gameplay and graphics the series has ever seen makes this unavoidably addictive game number 34 on my list. 9.0/10

33. The Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess (Wii) - I'd never played a Zelda game before this so I didn't know what to expect, but what I experienced in the end was a game that had an atmosphere that is undescribably and incomparable to any other game I had played before it. The boss fights were the highlight for me - very inventive -  and although I got stuck many times and was on the verge of giving up, there was just something inside of me that willed me on to complete the game. 9.0/10

32. The Simpsons Hit And Run (PS2) - Probably the funniest game I have ever played. I love the animated series therefore I had to get the game. I enjoyed The Simpsons Road Rage before it, and was hoping this would be similar. It was in the way that you drive around Springfield, but there was much more to this game. Every mission was hilarious without fail, characters recited new and old hilarious catchphrases and stealing random cars was the cherry on top of a huge Simpsons dessert. The one disappointment was that there was no (proper) multiplayer mode, like the one I had so much fun on in The Simpsons Road Rage. But, although that limited how much in total I ended up playing the game, I will never forget the hilarious and whacky adventure that was The Simpsons Hit And Run. 9.0/10

31. Gran Turismo 4 (PS2) - The fourth full Gran Turismo lived up to most things a Gran Turismo game should be. Graphics, most would agree, that back in the day were second to none, gameplay similar to GT3, a few more cars and tracks and a hell of a lot to do. I vowed to finally complete a Gran Turimo game fully, but I only managed 75% completion after years of play. 9.1/10

30. Pokemon Emerald (GBA) - My second ever Pokemon game - and it fared pretty well. Exactly what you'd want from a Pokemon game - loads of new Pokemon although probably the design and names of some of them showed signs of how bad future Pokemon were going to get. The town and city designs were as good as ever, and the music stuck to the series' roots. The gym/boss battles were on par, although I was a bit disappointed of how little their was to do once you had finished the games apart from visit the 'base' of a player you had connected with so that you could battle that player whenever you wanted - this I feel was amongst the best of the new features. Still as addictive as ever, I probably completed this game 3 times over and invested over 300 hours as a result. 9.1/10

29. Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii) - The game that justified me getting a Wii. I barely touch it any more but it was worth getting it for this games amazing campaign mode and addictive multi-player mode. Tons more characters and levels than Melee and the addition of the story means it is considerably higher on my list than its predecessor. 9.1/10

28. Digimon World 2 (PS1) - Got completely torn apart by critics, but I didn't know that at the time. The dialogue was awful and the whole game took so long I've probably spent half my life on it without noticing, but it was my first addictive gaming experience. Completing missions and collecting Digimon became an obsession of mine so much so that every spare moment of leisure time I got was dedicated to this game. I felt the digital world was a second home to me - I loved the layout, the design, the music and the characters. Joining a certain team with specific specialities towards Digimon types gave me a sense of belonging and having enemies made me want to complete the multi-100 hour game just so I could kick their ass at the end of it. Crawling around dungeons was strategic and exciting, sometimes suspenseful (whatever the critics say). By the end, the whole thing built up to something so ridiculously big that the final boss was the most insane boss I have ever seen in any game (well, almost). For me, this game was better than most Pokemon games and I urge anyone who bothered to read it to try and get their hands on a copy and play through this astonishing game that I will always remember. 9.2/10

27. Pro Evolution Soccer 4 (PS2) - Just my favourite sports game of all time. It just had everything a football (soccer) game needed at the time. It had better graphics than its competition (FIFA 05), it was extremely playable - less realistic than FIFA but more fun, especially dribbling and passing with someone like Pablo Aimar - and the presentation was perfection within the menus and whilst playing a game. The Master League was addictive - making your favourite team everything you've ever wanted them to be, playing whole seasons to win unlicensed and made-up trophies, and watching players you bought from the bargain bucket grow into world class stars. This game was everything I ever wanted from a football game and, although some have come close, none have matched it since. 9.2/10

26. Poy Poy 2 (PS1) - Pure, simple fun! Throwing rocks and rockets at other players and using special moves (psyches) specific to each character was basically the whole game. Multi-player with up to 4 players was a blast, as you'd expect, and earning money in single player modes to upgrade psyches kept me coming back also. For me, this was more fun and more addictive than Super Smash Bros. 9.2/10

25. Spyro: Year Of The Dragon (PS1) - Not many games live up to their predecessor when their predecessor was as good as Spyro 2: Rypto's Rage... And this one was no exception, but it was still a great game. The whole thing was very similar to Spyro 2 with some welcome additions such as new playable characters. The story, the missions and the level design was as good if not better than the game it succeeded, but as a whole it felt like it was missing something Spyro 2 had. Nevertheless, one of my favourite platformers of all time! 9.2/10

24. Need For Speed 3: Hot Pursuit (PC) - Had to get this game after NFS2 made me realise my love for racing games. It was actually better - Intense police chases, beautiful exotic cars (including a Jaguar XJR-15 to my surprise and delight) and -best of all - the imaginative track design. God I miss Need For Speed with closed original tracks. 9.2/10

23. Tekken 5 (PS2) - At the time of purchase, I regarded Tekken as my favourite series as all time and, after the disappointment that was Tekken 4, a lot was riding on this new Tekken. Thankfully, it was a return to form. Tekken was faster-paced than ever, had a massive character roster and a new 'Devil Within' mode that was fresh and exciting. A minus was that the main arcade boss was extremely cheap and unplayable. But beating the crap out of him countless times made it acceptable. 9.2/10

22. Pokemon Leaf Green (GBA) - Where do I start? My first Pokemon game is my favourite - everything was so right. The classic Pokemon with small amounts of new ones once you had completed the game, specific music with each memorable town, epic gym boss and elite four battles (back when all your Pokemon had to be lvl. 70 to complete the game), loads of mind-blowing secrets (especially once you complete the game) - it was just the most addictive game ever created. There were a lot of memorable moments, some of my highlights were: searching for and finally catching a Pikachu in Veridian Forest, beating trainer after trainer on a ship earning loads of EXP and realising when you're actually in the presence of the awesome MewTwo. I didn't mind levelling up several of my favourite Pokemon to lvl. 100 - it was all so satisfying. 9.3/10

21. WipEout HD Fury (PSN) - I had briefly played Wip3out a long time before purchasing it and I remember not enjoying it. However, WipEout HD blew me away - it was completely gorgeous, everything about it. The graphics are still some of the smoothest and best on the PS3 and the handling of the 'ships' is so suited to me that I have to say this is the best I have ever been at any game (probably a lot to do with why I love it so much!). The fury expansion pack basically gives you double the game and therefore no reason not to purchase it as well. I actually think it should be made mandatory to purchase WipEout HD Fury when you sign up to the PlayStation Network. Actually. 9.3/10

20. Tekken Tag Tournament (PS2) - It's Tekken. It had all the characters. All the characters could go bowling. I couldn't really have hoped for much more from the first game after Tekken 3. 9.4/10

19. Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 (PS2) - I did wonder if EA would ever consider making a sequel to the excellent Need For Speed 3: Hot Pursuit... and they did. And I'm glad they did 'cos this one was even better! All it needed was the Lamborghini Murcielago being chased by cops on the front cover and I was sold. But the game was somehow better than the artwork: tropical tracks with shortcuts and jumps galore, almost every car you've ever wanted to drive and the cop chases. The cop chases that involved avoiding roadblock after roadblock, the deadly spikestrip and helicopters! Helicopters that dropped bombs and were some use to the cops and ridiculous fun in multi-player races *cough new Hot Pursuit cough*. Plus the soundtrack with Hot Action Cop on it. 9.4/10

18. Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (PS3) - I always pretended I didn't rate this game among my favourites, until I had to make this list. Just thinking about how much time I could bare to spend online each day since its release proves how much I was addicted to this game. It is like a drug - you definitely feel a high from picking out a headshot with the Barrett .50cal sniper rifle or knifing that camping b******* in the corner of a room you ran miles to get to for revenge. Everything just feels so right - the levelling up, the callsigns, the challenges and prestiging - everything is designed to get you hooked and that's just what happened to me. The fact that I spend 15 days in total online is why this is one of my favourite games of all time (I can no longer deny it). Just for the record, my favourite gun was the FAMAS, my best title was the gold 1000 headshots FAMAS title and my Kill/Death Ratio in the end was 1.45.  9.4/10

17. Super Mario Kart (SNES) - One of my first ever gaming experiences, so I guess that's why it's so high. I'm not sure how much I would enjoy it on this present day, but boy did I love this game as a child. I remember Koopa Troopa being my favourite character and being unable to beat the 150cc cup without help from my cousin. 9.4/10

16. Gran Turismo 2 (PS1) - This changed everything. This was the first Gran Turismo I owned and it changed the way I thought about racing games. They didn't have to be about crazy feelings of speed, cop radios you could hear for some reason in the background and hindering your opponents with banana skins - no, this wonderful games taught me about real driving: taking corners in the fastest possible times with cars that handled like cars and overtaking opponents with the swiftest possible motions. Collecting cars for your own garage was extremely fulfilling as there were loads to choose from and the collection of tracks was a nice variety (the original GT tracks were the best IMO). I remember the game being so ahead of its time that they needed to spread the content across two discs with arcade mode and split-screen on a separate disc. I am so glad they bothered to include split-screen as it was, in fact, more satisfying beating a friend at Gran Turismo than on you're average arcade racer as both of you knew that when you won, it was down to pure skill. Yeeeees. 9.5/10

15. Super Mario Bros. 3 (SNES) - All that's ever needed to be said about this game has been said. As a kid, I particularly enjoyed to different themed worlds and new costumes such as that raccoon one that could fly and the frog one that could turn on the invincibility for a few seconds. When I played it though, I didn't realise how genius, fresh and innovative this game was but I do appreciate all those things and then some now. 9.5/10

14. Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack In Time (PS3) - I didn't purchase a single PS2 Ratchet & Clank until after I had played this game it's predecessor. I was just hungry for more after witnessing how amazing these games are. This game in particular felt like I was playing through a brilliant Pixar film because of the strong story that ran whenever you completed a level. I thoroughly enjoyed following the story - it was everything, I felt, a good adventure-game accompanying story should be: exciting, emotional-rollercoaster and memorable. If there was any game with more heart than this in this generation, I've yet to play it. 9.6/10

13. Need For Speed: Most Wanted (PS2) - Mine and many other people's favourite ever Need For Speed and that's saying something because there are loads and I've played 90% of them. Why is it the best? Well, because it includes everything you expect from an NFS game then more surprisingly good additions. The cops are still the best thing about the game - racing away from them, wrecking them, using diversions to avoid (or wreck a whole lot of) them and earning ridiculous amounts of sweet, sweet bounty. But there's more good other than the cops. The open world is IMO the best and most interesting Need For Speed world to date for racing and cop chases and world design is definitely something NFS games have struggled with since Most Wanted. The handling of the cars was supreme compared to the Underground games before it where it was over-responsive in all cars. The customisation tools were stripped down a bit from Underground and this is a good thing - some of the things you could customise for you're car were just plain stupid (neon underglow - WTF kind of person would consider that in real life?). A bonus was the surprisingly enjoyable story of the black list that was pieced together as you worked you're way up the black list the more races you won and the more bounty you earned. This worked its way up until an exciting climax involving an epic jump and a BMW, which I'll never forger (although it was pretty easy for the final level). 9.6/10

12. Spyro 2: Rypto's Rage (PS1) - Apart from another PS1 game coming up on my list, this was platforming perfection for me. Another very special game from Insomniac, I think they had a real gem in their hands with the Spyro series and should never had let it go to money-grabbing investors. There was an atmosphere I find hard to explain in Spyro 2, it gave off a kind of calmness and serenity without ever feeling lonely (if that makes sense). My favourite part of the game was usually exploring the secrets of the level-select levels, which were based on the four seasons, and finding the orbs within. Collecting gems and orbs was always rewarding and never felt like a chore. The missions you had to complete were varied and fun, as were each and every level you have to visit. I didn't think I would enjoy Spyro as much as I did when I first started it all those years ago, but it turns out I was giving it too little credit and obviously didn't have a clue about the developers. 9.6/10

11. Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools Of Destruction (PS3) - I only got this game because it was in the bundle that came with my first PS3. I only played it because I was already bored with the other game that came with my first PS3. I had no idea it would be one of my favourite games of all time. My first Ratchet & Clank game was an outstanding experience, I was actually surprised at how solid and fun a game could be from start to finish. Why is it 3 places above A Crack In Time? Well, although the story is slightly lacking in comparison, everything else isn't, despite it coming two years before. I'd say this game had better weapons, better levels and better graphics. And that's worth 0.1 points more than A Crack In Time. I was so upset once I finished it, I had to play it all over again immediately. 9.7/10

10. Crash Team Racing (PS1) - It's coming to the OMGOMGOMG section of my list. Do I really have to explain how awesome this game is? Okay, it's easily the best kart game I have ever played. The key is the control. Handling just seems so right, and when you combine that with skid turning whilst hitting an opponent with a rolling bomb at an angle, there seems to be no better feeling. Everything about the game is madness, including the tracks, which are insanely fun (apart from Coco's park - an oval track on a kart racing game, who's idea was that?). The split screen made the game last for me - playing with a friend or three triples the amount of fun you can have with this game. 9.7/10

9. LittleBigPlanet (PS3) - I'm not a massive fan of this generation of gaming - too many shooters, not enough interesting JRPG's and a general lack of imagination. However, this definitely cannot be said about LittleBigPlanet - the whole game's about people's imagination. Although the game's mostly about giving you the tools to create almost anything within the 2.5D platformer, the pre-created story levels weren't half bad and had nice, friendly, carefree atmosphere about them. Choosing you're own costume and customising your pod was fun, but if you're a creative person the most satisfying thing you could do was create your own level(s). I actually set myself a homework to make my own sperm-themed level. It got taken down so I had to change their name to tadpoles FYI. It was a decent level if I do say so myself but it didn't get a good amount of plays, so what I would like to see in LittleBigPlanet 2 is a decent way for everyone to advertise their levels so everyone gets what they deserve for working hard to give their public a level that's worth playing. 9.7/10

8. Tekken 3 (PS1) - What a game. Just what a game. A massive leap from Tekken 2, this game proved to me how good a game could be. Fast, exciting gameplay, smooth graphics, balanced characters with different styles (one bound to be your favourite) and ultimately the skilled win. You got back what you put into the game, which can't always be said about Tekkens of late. I was so serious about this game and beating my peers, I learnt what I could and memorised the best moves for eight fighters, and that was serious work for an eight year old. I became so obsessed with this game having played it for the first time, I didn't think of anything else for a few weeks. Playing Tekken 3 was not only a great gaming experience, it was a highlight of my childhood. 9.8/10

7. Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec (PS2) - A new generation of games and a new quality to live up to. I couldn't believe I was playing Gran Turismo THREE on the PlayStation TWO. It was beautiful. The graphics were beautiful, the handling was beautiful, the whole career was beautiful, everything was beautiful. I just enjoyed doing anything on the game, even navigating through the menus. You know what, I might actually go back and play this game now that I think about it. 9.8/10

6. Crash Bandicoot 3 (PS1) - The big daddy of all platformers, I honestly believe there could be nothing added or taken away from this game to make it any better. Everything in this game, to me, is now iconic. That level select place with those squidgy buttons. That first level with the chickens and it's music. Earning a new ability after defeating each boss. Everything was just such a pleasure to do. Jumping, spinning, double jumping - the responsiveness of the whole game in a 3D world echoes how revolutionary Mario first was when it came out. The level design was great too, never too long or too short. I cannot praise this game enough and just wish we were in a time where this sort of platforming greatness could be achieved again. 9.8/10

5. Kingdom Hearts II (PS2) - I got this game for Christmas two years before I actually played it. I'm glad I decided to pick it up, it was amazing. This is the first time I have played a game where the adventure was so heart-warming that it blew away the fact that the actual gameplay was repetitive. Playing through each themed world was just so enjoyable, I kind of which the game just went on forever and the final boss battle never came. It's sad I know, but I think a lot of people would agree with me when I say it would be nice to give up my life in this world in a trade to live in the simpler world of Kingdom Hearts. 9.9/10

4. Soul Calibur III (PS2) - A lot of people may disagree, but I say this is the best fighting game ever made. Play it again, you may have been brainwashed by the lacklustre reviews (too many comparing this to its predecessor, to which it is superior in every way IMO), but this game was dynamite. I loved the way it played - fast-paced and flowing so much that it was almost artistic watching some fighters. The presentation was top class and there were a few modes that could keep you going for a long, long time. In the fields of dialogue and how awesome the final boss character is, Soul Calibur IV paled in comparison. As well as with pretty much everything else. 9.9/10

3. Uncharted 2 (PS3) - Finally, a game on my list that is as good as people say it is, that was worth the hype. I said Ratchet & Clank was like playing through a Pixar film, Uncharted 2 is like playing through a cutting-edge action film. Everything improved from Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, I didn't know it was possible to improve and already great game so much. Every second, you wonder what's going to happen next, and 'what' usually involves things collapsing. The gunplay was always exciting, but what I enjoy mostly with Uncharted games is climbing and figuring out what's going on in the beautiful levels. One great example of this is a chapter called 'Heart Of Ice', which perfectly illustrates why I love this part of the game. I believe this to be the best experience this generation of home consoles has to offer - if you want the best in entertainment today, seriously look no further than Uncharted 2, it doesn't get much better than this and I am totally out of my mind just thinking about how Uncharted 3 could top this. 9.9/10

2. The World Ends With You (DS) - I was not expecting that. I had no idea a handheld game could achieve such greatness. I actually got this game by accident, and it taught me the definition of a 'happy accident'. The music is the first thing that springs to mind - it perfectly sets the contemporary atmosphere (with dashes of anger, paranoia and anxiousness) they were trying to put across for Underground Shibuya. The anime style was very cool, again they got that spot on. The gameplay is innovative, difficult to get used to, but very rewarding. What I really love about this game is that it spoke to me. There is a message or two in this game, and, as one of the reviewers said, everyone should listen. I pray, pray, pray that Square allow a sequel to this game. 10.0/10

1. Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 (PS2) - Yet another game in my long list of 'I'm not sure why I bought this game but I did' games. I played this game throughout one beautiful summer and it was the best summer ever (this game just enhanced it). Why do I love it? I felt like I was part of the team who unravelled the mystery, JRPG style. I just adore everything about the game: How everything looks, the gameplay mechanics, how deep the characters are, I even adore the parts that bored me nearly to death. The story was the best I have ever witnessed in a game, and it was such a shame when it came to an end that for the first time in my life, if I want to take it that far, I literally felt suicidal. I have yet to play through the game again, but I know the time is near providing Persona 5 is not just around the corner. A perfect experience. 10.0/10
