    The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

    A true classic loaded with nostalgia and revolutionary quality.

    Ocarina of Time was revolutionary, without a doubt. It showed people what games can do and provided an enjoyable experience for those who played it back in the day. I have never appreciated OoT as much as most people do,... Read Full Review

    Crystal Defenders

  • Review Score:8.5
    Crystal Defenders may be short, but it packs so much replay value in the 8 levels that it's totally worth a mere $5.

    Super Mario Land 3: Wario Land

    Not exactly challenging, but very enjoyable and memorable.

    Wario Land is the best GameBoy/Color game I've ever played. It's an excellent platformer, and it's all the more impressive because it's... well... on the GameBoy. I don't know of a whole lot of good games on the first ... Read Full Review

    Portal 2

    No hard feelings

    Portal was a truly groundbreaking puzzle game. Innovation abounded throughout every test chamber in that short but quirky and memorable game, though its rather short length made it feel more like an extensive demo than a... Read Full Review

    Ratchet & Clank 2: Locked and Loaded

    The sequel done right.

    Back in 2003, Insomniac didn't seem to be capable of making bad games, or even so-so games. All three games in their Spyro the Dragon trilogy on the PlayStation were great, and their PS2 debut title Ratchet & Clank was p... Read Full Review

    An even grander Galaxy.

    Super Mario Galaxy was an astounding achievement in video game design back in 2007, and to this day it remains an excellent and thoroughly enjoyable 3-D platformer. In fact, Galaxy was so good that when I heard that a di... Read Full Review

    Pokemon Silver Version

    Silver and Gold remain the best Pokemon games yet.

    Pokemon Red and Blue made a huge splash in the video game industry back in the late 1990's, and to this day it's still a massively popular franchise with a strong universal appeal. For kids, perhaps it's the idea of coll... Read Full Review

    Portal

    Portal's brilliance and wit make it an excellent game that's innovative, challenging, and entertaining in many ways.

    A few years ago, if I had heard of a game that would somehow combine a puzzle and a shooter, I would have had plenty of doubts as to how that would work. The two just don't seem like they would get along together very we... Read Full Review

    With MotionPlus at the head, Resort is an entertaining and remarkably precise collection of sports games.

    The Wii is the object of insult more often than it ought to be in this generation, because people see the console's games that sell well and simply laugh. Mediocre minigame collections and unpolished 'family-friendly gam... Read Full Review

    The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks

    Despite its slow start, Spirit Tracks ends up being a great Zelda game when it's all said and done.

    The quality of The Legend of Zelda series as a whole is practically unquestionable. Almost everything Nintendo sets out to do with the series is a success and comes out with flying colors. Phantom Hourglass successfully ... Read Full Review
