Number 7: Gears of War

Without Resident Evil 4, there would be no Gears of War. Hell, Cliffy B said it himself. However, with that being said, Gears of War stands on its own merits. Gears of War could be described as a tactical shooting game, but it would be best described simply, as badass. No game ever made you feel like such an overpowered S.O.B. until Gears of War. You were a giant warrior, in giant armor, with a giant gun, killing giant aliens. What more could you want? Perhaps some of the funnest multiplayer known to man? You've got it. Gears of War was a great singleplayer experience, especially with a friend, but online is where the game found its meat and potatoes. With its "elimination" style gameplay, few games can match the visceral, fast-paced, blood-pumping action of Gears of War. While subsequent entries in the series were good, specifically Gears of War 2, they never felt as tight, arcade-like, or simply fun, as the original. Gears of War will always stand at the top of the stack for me, in terms of competitive games. It was simply one of the best.

Number 4: Halo 3

Halo 3 is one of those rare games that just seems to get it all right. While there will always be criticisms you can make, such as certain guns or vehicles being unbalanced, or even the lack of offline multiplayer bots (which isn't even common, anyway), you cannot deny the sheer excellence of the game. Halo 3 offers a well-thought campaign, a brilliant, classic multiplayer mode with a plethora of different options, and the excellent forge mode where you can create your own content. Few games are as feature-rich and well constructed as Halo 3. Halo's gameplay is in fine form here, and the amount of wasted nights spent playing Halo 3 with drunk buddies are too many to count. Hell, even the graphics are pretty good.

Number 3: Demon's Souls

If you consider yourself a serious gamer, you should know about Demon's Souls, but if you don't, let me tell you, it is badass. Demon's Souls is sort of like what would happen if you combined Diablo 2 with one of the 3D Zelda titles. It's so much better than that, however. The game is dark, gothic, and at times, even disturbing and scary. However, what makes it so brilliant is the atmosphere. The atmosphere of demon souls protrudes through every aspect of the gameplay, and makes the entire experience one you won't forget. From the small ambient sounds, to the well-voiced character, and even the strange, wondrous environments and creepy lighting effects, Demon's Souls leaves you with an aural feeling completely its own. Not to mention, the controls and combat are as tight as can be, the levels are incredibly well designed and each present unique obstacles and enemies, and the progression of your character is unique and fun.

Number 1: The Legend of Zelda: the Wind Waker

I'll never understand the hate for Wind Waker. It seems to be one of those "love it or hate it" things, but I've always been in the former group. Wind Waker, to me, is the first Zelda game that really seemed like an adventure. In prior installments, all areas seemed very connected and reminiscent of one another, I always felt like I was playing an action/platformer game and I was never taken out of that mindset, but with the Wind Waker, the game was epic, grand, and truly enthralling. Finding some small, almost invisible island and finding a hole on it that leads to an ancient battleground filled with giant demon warriors is about one of the coolest experiences I've found in gaming. The wind waker draws you in and doesn't let go. The art style, the combat, the exploration, the wonder and curiosity- it is just so grand. Wind Waker will always be my favorite Zelda game, and one of the best games I've ever played in general.

These four games... AWESOME!

I love what you said about Halo 3, it's nice to see someone who doesn't bash a true classic, when so many people are constantly running Halo down.

I also love what you said about "The Wind Waker", sad, here it's one of Zelda's very best and so many people seem to have hate for it, but at least you, and I'm sure others, appreciate it.

Not to go on here, but I'll just say that I liked pretty much everything you said about these games in particular, as for the others I haven't played them so I cant say what my opinions of them are.

To name some of my favorite games of all time would be revealing something personal about myself, that probably sounds kinda funny but to me the games that I truly love are sacred and I like to keep them to myself... hopefully you can understand that.

By the way, happy Easter.

I think the best way to summarise your favorite games is by how many hours you have over the years put into those games/series.

10. Monkey Island 1 & 2
9. Football Manager/Championship Manager
8. Diablo II
7. COD4 & MW2
6. Gears of War 1 & 3
5. Civ 1 & 3
4. Pro Evolution Soccer
3. Borderlands 1 & 2
2. Civ 4
1. Dark Souls 1 & 2 (Best games by a very long margin. The games I listed from 2 - 10 don't even come close to how good the Dark Souls series is. Single player and multiplayer are melded so intrinsically well with each other that one would be worse without the other. I never had a PS3 so unfortunately I missed our on Demon's Soul's)
