Forums - Gaming Discussion - If you could only recommend 3 games which would they be?

Hi all! Megadude here.

Ok so let's say you had the power to force somone to play any 3 games of your choosing to show them how wonderfully fun videogames can be. Which would you choose? It's a super tough decision.

After much thought I have chosen:

1. Final Fantasy 3/(6) (SNES) Because it has the best story and music still to this day.

2. Little Big Planet (PS3) Because the fun never ends.

3. The legend of Zelda: A link to the past (SNES) Because it is just soo friggan epic.

About my choices: Final Fantasy 6 was a no brainer. I was torn between Little Big planet and Super Mario Galaxy. I chose LBP in the end because of the multiplayer and user generated content. I was also considering The Ocarina of time, but chose A Link to the past for having better music and story.

So if you had to choose only 3 games to represent the very best in gaming which would you choose? There is no need to consider ease of use, as the hypothetical user would be forced to play each game in its entirety. After I will tally the votes to decide the top 3 recommended games by VG Chartz users!

Please note: It will be a challenge to only include 3 games. I could easily make a list of 100+ games I would highly recommend. If you feel you must make a bigger list feel free and I will add the first 3 games you mention to the vote count.
