This has been long overdue I think and I think you the fans deserve to know what my top 10 favorite games of all time are. Now a word of warning expect more than one entry per franchise for some. At the end I shall also list some that didn't quiet make the cut. So ready or not lets begin.
10. Mass Effect 2: Kicking off the countdown is my favorite franchise second game and my favorite game of 2010. Mass Effect 2 featured alot of new characters,possilbities and new foes. You gathered up the finest squad in the Galaxy to take down the Collectors and pass through the Omega 4 Relay. In terms of pacing and ironing out the problems from the firstt game this ened up being a masterpiece.
9.Sonic the Hedgehog 2: In terms of sequels this is like the perfect sequel Sonic 2 holds many memories for some and some consider it the best because it was the first one they played but for me it was stuff introduced. The Spin Dash,2 Player Split Screen Vs Mode,Tails and of course the moment you collect 50 Rings with 7 Chaos Emeralds and become Super Sonic. While Sonic 3 and Knuckles is probably more ironed out this introduced so much to the franchise that live with the fans through the years.
8.Uncharted 2 Among Thieves: Continuing the sequel trend Uncharted 2 improved in every way over the original. Six Axis controls well dropped for moving across certain ledges. Grenades were easier to use and a solid multiplayer component to boot as well.The game by many is considered one of the best of this gen and it surely makes it worth it to own a PS3.
7.Super Mario Bros 3: Ages ago this was top but other games have come into my life and dethroned it. Super Mario Bros 3 returned to the proper platforming with an arsenal of power ups like the Hammer Bros Suit,Super Leaf and even for one level Kuribo Shoe. Secrets a plenty and mini games too a perfect return and this propelled the plumber to stardom.
6.Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater: In my opinion the series was awesome overall but number 3 just has the best bosses,best characters,soundtrack and best moments. If it's the shootout against The End or the Shagohod fight. The game oozes with quality and the intro is just legendary.
5.Resident Evil 4:Forget what old school fans say RE4 is god in my eyes no game in the series touches it. It reinvented itself with more dangerous foes and a better focus on action. Whilst there were scares they were few and far between. THe game had a great pacing and overall even when finished it had extras to play that were fun. Trust me I'd rather have a Chainsaw wielder over a slow zombie any day of the week in RE.
4.The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time: Manys favorite game ever but my number 4. It introduced fans to Hyrule in 3D with a great overworld full of activity and bosses bigger than anything you'd seen before. Plus the soundtrack and puzzles make it a legend in it's own right but for me it just quiet do enough to be number 1 and number 4 is a great position so hopefully fans won't rage.
3.Super Mario Galaxy: If you think the Wii sucked and refused to buy one well shame on you this Mario game rewrote the platforming genre and gave it a good kick up the backside. With power ups like Bee,Ice and Boo Suits being very clever for certain levels old returner like Fireflower and Invinciblilty Star or Rainbow Star whatever you want to call them returning making it fun to use. An excellent soundtrack and plenty of varreity Mario Galaxy sits as one of the all time great games. Your nuts if you have missed this. Oh and the soundtrack rocks as well.
2.The Legend of Zelda The Wind Waker:Criticised for it's look many forgot about that when they realised it was still a Zelda game in fact the graphics were colorful and didn't seem to be outdated as many followed like Okami and Viewtiful Joe. With a massive overworld and plenty of sidequests the Wind Waker is amazing and if you think it's a kiddy game have you seen what happens at the end. A kickass intro and flawless soundtrack really help too.
MY FAVORITE GAME OF ALL TIME IS
1.Super Mario World: This is when the console wars started 1991. Sonic the Hedgehog had burst onto the scene with the original Sonic the Hedgehog what did Nintendo have in reply Super Mario World. A game that many consider to be the perfect platformer. The game feels to have a great sense of speed with Mario running to show of the SNES power and one of most popular power ups in the world of gaming the Cape Feather which if you possess the skill can go for an entire level in the air but what really clinched it was Yoshi. The little Green guy became an instant hit because he could eat anything and with different colored Yoshis or Koopa Shells could Spit Fire,Smash the Ground,Fly and the secrets and Special Road. Also being told your A SUPER PLAYER must make you feel like a platforming god. The game has aged so well it's still fun to play even now. THE PERFECT PLATFORMER and possibly THE PERFECT GAME.
Metroid Prime: The best Metroid and a very immersive game.
The Last of Us: Naughty Dog delivering another masterpiece with such strong characters and gameplay mechanics.
Sonic 3 and Knuckles: Perhaps the Ultimate Sonic Experience
The Legend of Zelda A Link to the Past: Return to form after Zelda 2 introducing the Spin Attack and Master Sword.
So those are my top 10 games of all time whats yours and apologises for Mario and Zelda dominating the top 4 they just are the best franchsies in the world.
