50 - This game's theme song was so popular and well-liked they released it on the video game Rock Band
- The campaign is only about 4-5 hours long on a first playthrough but as little as 1-2 for experienced players.

49 - The PS2 and Xbox 360 versions of the game were mostly identical but the Xbox 360 version had a bit more unique content.
- This game is what really propelled a genre into he mainstream, only to have it fizzle out a few years later.

48 - This beloved classic leaned into the genre's more campy elements and is widely considered a masterpiece for it.
- It might be one of the most remastered and rereleased games of all time, and the company recently redid its prequels to great success.

47 - This game left people wondering if the protagonist was human or not, given his relations to other humans within the game world.
- It is also one of the highest rated games of all time and the best-selling in its franchise.

46 - Your ally is a vegetable and your enemy is an idiot.
- This game is a sequel to another game already on the list.

45 - What's gravity? Infinity, that's what.
- This game got a remake that sold better than the original.

44 - Axiom Verge

43 - The Messenger

42 - For the first time ever in this sequel, you can play as the main hero's best friend in their own unique campaign.
- It is the fourth entry in the series, which is in its own is a side-series to a game that has been around since the NES

41 - Red Dead Redemption

42: Yoshi's story?

50: The only videogame song I see worth to play in Rock band would be the Hell March, so my (probably wrong) guess is Command and Conquer: Red Alert

Tekken 5 (PS2)

Change YOY: -10

Tekken has been my favourite fighting game series ever since I played the arcade version of Tekken 1 almost 25 years ago, and the overall best game in the series in my opinion is Tekken 5. The roster is the best it has ever been in the series, the gameplay the most satisfying and fun, and visually it is one of the best looking PS2 games ever.

Outside of maybe Super Smash Bros, Tekken is by far the fighting game series that I've spent the most time with, both playing with friends and by myself through the story.

Guessed by @Runa216

As far as listing games that've become memories go, this is the one that goes farthest back. I was playing Sonic 1 and 2 on the Mega Drive since before I can remember, meaning they were probably the first games I really got into, if not the very first I've played at all. The sequel is by far the better game out of the two, hence why it still makes the list, but I never actually managed to finish it as a kid, it was just too hard. I eventually got back into it back during the Xbox 360 days, since there was a version released for it, and then I did play through the whole thing lots of times. Umm, maybe that means I should list Xbox 360 on the platforms up there? I don't because it's still the Mega Drive version being emulated (I think?), but it's a grey area. Anyways, that's all I have for this one. Great game, great music, great memories.

I wouldn't say it's a "theme" song. Nice hint though. Again, I can't go around guessing, so I'll leave it up there. A bit late for this today, so I'm gonna make my next hint pretty obvious.

#40 - A fan remake of a game that got an official remake just over a year later.

I don't remember what it's called off the top of my head, but is it the Metroid 2 fan remake?

No to both! 

The game is/was a free song in Rock Band

Yeah, it's called AM2R.

Ah yea that's it. I really liked Samus Returns, so maybe I should give it a try at some point for comparison.

Compared to Samus Returns, it's a lot more faithful to the original Metroid 2, and gameplay-wise it's very reminiscent of Zero Mission. It's really good.
