Every now and then one must ask, what are your favorite games of all time? Has it changed? Or have your top 5 stayed the same? Here are mine:
5. Resident Evil Remake
There are a lot of games I could probably put as Number 5. But Resident Evil Remake came to mind because it really made an impression on me at the time. It was scary as hell, but also just very intriguing and once I got through it all, I ended up beating it numerous times. One of the best horror games!
4. Starcraft / Broodwar
RTS seems dead these days. But man, growing up, Starcraft was awesome. I was never good at it, but this game made me want to get good. It was fun and challenging and truly unique. It was one of the best PC games ever, and reminded me of a time when PC was cool. I hope some day we see a Starcraft 3.
3. Final Fantasy 7 (original)
This game moved up in my list because of the Remake lol. It reminded me how much I loved the characters and the lore from this game. And being one of the first major 3D RPGs, it totally blew my mind at the time. Gameplay was fun, and most importantly, the story and the characters were great.
2. Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
My favorite Zelda, with BoTW coming in second. Just the sense of awe I got from playing this game the first time was truly special. And even to this day, I don't see many games that come close to being as inspired as Ocarina of Time was. Loved the gameplay, the story, the mechanics. Time travel. Dungeons. It was awesome!
1. Metal Gear Solid
MGS is the opposite of formulaic. Every moment in this game is special and has a purpose. From the boss fights, to the gameplay sequences, to the story which is still incredible to this day. The writing among the best. This is Kojima's finest and unfortunately I don't think we'll ever see better from him lol.
