    This is the antidote to the negative depressing lists that are knocking around.

    I don't think I'll ever understand this urge to categorise everything, but whatever. Fill yer boots if that's what gets you off.

    Lists need explanation, otherwise it's just a faceless name of a game you know nothing more about now than you did before you read that person's list. Ok, you think game X is worth playing, but that doesn't tell me why I should feel that way!

    I've filed your comments under fair and balanced criticism.

    True, that thread about the top five rapists and the other one about favourite natural disasters was a bit of a downer.

    Good point. Here goes.

    Ever
    Fallout 2 - PC - because it was so friggin big, bleak (killing children and working as a fluffer FTW), funny and violent. And because the Speech and Science skills actually mattered.
    Flashback - Amiga - because it was so gorgeous to look at, and the world felt *real*
    K240 - Amiga - because it was Colonization in space, with aliens, big fleets and virus missiles.

    This gen
    Bad Company 2 - because the MP is second to none, and it looks and sounds fan-tastic.
    Arkham Asylum - because it is so very, very well-crafted and manages to make the Batman universe interesting to someone who couldn't give a shit about the comics. Oh, and the combat is awesome.
    Mass Effect 2 - because I haven't felt that my actions *mattered* like that in any other game.

    Ever:

    MGS
    MGS3
    MGS4

    This Gen:

    MGS4
    Oblivion
    Halo 3

    This should be mandatory for any list thread.
  • Deleted user 12 July 2011 23:19:47
    Top 10 genocides have got to be in contention surely?

    Red has inspired me to create a thread for top 10 stabbing implements.

    Plus I'm honoured matey, we'll get back to the Halols soon.

    Top 10 worst list threads time.

    Followed by a teabag or no deal.

    Anyway, I shall not derail this further. I'm going to go and watch LA Noire play itself.

    Ok, I'll play along. Bear in mind I havent played *lots* of stuff, incl any nintendo stuff, or ps3 exclusives.

    Ever:
    Half Life 2 (probably the 'best' game of the decade, and still holds up, imo)
    Doom (defining game of FPS genre)
    Sims (best selling pc game in history…)
    Honourable mentions : GTA3, Burnout 3?

    This gen:
    Borderlands (my fave game this gen. for the style, gunplay, humour, loot).
    Portal (just a special story/feeling to it. Unique experience).
    RDR? (compelling open world, but will be surpassed I expect).

    Agreed, if a jobs worth doing.

    Ever
    Syndicate - Amiga - first game I ever became properly addicted to, it populated my dreams and gave me many a sleepless night. Most of all because setting fire to people with the flame-thrower has never been such fun.
    Flashback - Amiga - The first game to make me wet my little girly knickers, just look at the animation FFS.
    Duke Nukem 3d - PC - The first game with real personality, some genuinely funny moments and a good FPS to boot.

    This gen
    Portal 2 - I couldn't love this game more. Fantastic level design, brilliantly funny and a great story.
    Fallout NV - One of the deepest games I've played, not as bleak as the other fallouts and the world feels more alive than ever.
    Uncharted 2 - Yes it's flawed but it's indiana jones, you get to play lead and get the girls. The set pieces are excellent and it's visually sumptuous.

    3 is such an arbitrary number and what if there's overlap?

    3 is the official size that constitutes a list and isn't ball achingly laborious to compile.
