Default Top 5 Games

1 - Metal Gear Solid (PS1)
1 - Final Fantasy VIII (PS1)
3 - Journey (PS3)
4 - Devil May Cry 3 (PS2)
5 - GTA: Vice City (PC)

Not a typo with MGS1, FFVIII being both one; I can't decide which is my favourite ever. I'm a big fan of strong story, characters, and MGS1 had those (to me). FFVIII was my first Final Fantasy game I played, and I really thought it was beautiful pre-rendered backgrounds, music. If I'd played it for the first time these days, I'm sure I'd dismiss it as pompous and cheesy.

I'm definitely a fan of the old school, PlayStation 1 era, Resident Evil games (and REMAKE, 4). Silent Hill 2 etc, too.

Now, I don't have the concentration to play big long games. I like shorter games like Journey and Monument Valley.

What are yours? I should've entitled it 'Your Top 5 Games', as its current title just seems it's me rambling and creating a selfish topic for myself.

This is hard for me, I don't play too many games any more, and I wouldn't really say any of my favourites from the past are still my top 5. But lets assume. Not really in any particular order.

Fallout 3 is still top.
Counter Strike: Global Offensive
Soldat (weird F2P PC game, played it for a good 6-7 years)
Driven to Destruction (PS2)
Timesplitters 2 and 3 (PS2)

It is very difficult, to name just 5, and the best ones at that.

In no order and accompanied with the format I played them on.

Little Big Adventure 2 (PC) - Played this the same time some of my other mates were playing it when we were in high school, we would call each other in conference chat and see where we all got to, and how we did certain parts, fond memories.

LOK: Soul Reaver (PS1) - A freakin soul eating demonized vampire on an epic time traveling dimension jumping quest for revenge.

Final Fantasy VIII (PS1) - Just everything clicked with me on this, music, moods, lots of "..........." moments.

Witcher III (and I and II, cheating here) (PC) - CD Project Red are the best in the world at what they do right now, W3 is the game of the century, and probably is actually the number 1 in this list.

Shenmue 1+2 (Dreamcast) - It was like playing real life, but in Japan, without being there
and then some dude came and killed my dad and nicked his weird mirror, so I went and beat up lots of people, played some arcade, collected some SEGA capsule toys, beat up some people, got Nozomi's phone number, beat up more people, went to work and raced the forklifts, beat up some more people and then went back to the arcade. Went to China, met this chick with a nice rack, and these people in a gang, beat up more guys there and played in their arcade and collect their toys, and went for a walk in the forest
. Great games

Now apart from Witcher 3, here are the other games that could be on that list on any given day.

Baldur's Gate (PC)
Lost Odyssey (X360)
God of War 1,2,3 (PS2/3/4)
Final Fantasy XI (PC)
Dragon Age: Origins (X360)
Resident Evil 2 (PS1)
Marvel Ultimate Alliance (X360)
Resident Evil 4 (Wii)

There's more, I just can't think of them.
Disintegration is the best album ever!

Mine are all older, and I'm sure I've missed many, but they would include

Historyline 1914-18 (PC version)
Dungeon Keeper 2 (PC version)
Civ 2 (rather than the original Civ) (PC)
Age of Empires (PC)
Age of Empires 2 (PC)

But I also remember just how different and better than all else at the time were
Elite (BBC model B at school)
Wing Commander (and WC 2) (PC)
Populous (PC)

1) Civilization (4 and 5 mostly)
2) DJ Max Series
3) Simcity Series (4 being best)
4) Sins of a Solar Empire
5) Audiosurf

NekoPara, as much as I love it, isn't on here due to not being a "game". Its high literature

2. Love Letter
3. For Sale
4. 7 Wonders
5. Dixit
