Not trying to be cliché here or turn into another Watch Mojo, I simply wish to share my favorite games. Games that I felt good about playing. Games that had a powerful message to share. Games that left a big impact on my childhood. Games that I will still play even to this day. Games I feel you should one day give a try. Here’s my top 10 games of all time. Enjoy!
#10 – Call of Duty 2 : Big Red One
This had to have been one of my favorite Call of Duty games of all time. Not only did it have great gameplay, but it had a brilliant story with excellent voice acting. The feeling of bonding with all of these soldiers, getting to know their stories, and seeing them fall before you is very impactful. Really shows you what kind of hell these men had gone through. A definite recommendation to any gamer or Call of Duty fan.
#9 – System Shock 2
I remember viewing this game back in 2012 when I was watching one of my favorite YouTubers, Mutahar, playing it. It really caught my eye and I thought I’d give it a go one day. Not only is it cheap, but it’s a blast to play. One of the best survival horror games I’ve ever played. The graphic aren’t anything to brag about, but that doesn’t ruin the game for me. A must have for all PC gamers, and a classic to hang on to.
#8 – Myst
This is how the game starts, you know absolutely nothing. You have no knowledge of who you are, where you are, why you’re here, and what your objective is. All of that you need to figure out by exploring the island, reading books, taking notes, solving puzzles, and reading maps. I love it! It does something not many games do anymore. Which makes it very unique. If you’re a fan of puzzles and exploration, you have to check this out.
#7 – Half-Life 2
Another PC classic that left an impact on the entire gaming industry. It popularized the concept of physics in gaming, and was the best first-person-shooter of its time. Great gameplay and an excellent story. Always felt awesome smacking stuff with your crowbar. If you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t heard of this game, definitely give it a try.
#6 – Medal of Honor Allied Assault
Before the rise of Call of Duty began, EA’s Medal of Honor dominated the PC gaming industry, and it was a big part of my childhood. It put you through missions based on actual events that took place during WW2. You even played undercover for the OSS trying to sabotage German U-Boats and other devices. You even got to fight alongside the French Resistance with the leader to destroy a powerful German Tiger Tank. An awesome classic to give a try.
#5 – Borderlands 2
So many guns!! I have honestly never heard of any game that out gun Borderlands 2. Aside from the game’s mass abundance of guns, this game also has some awesome gameplay along with a very well made story. If you ever get this game, be sure to play it with friends. It is essential, or you’ll get bored pretty quick. If you’re a fan of killing psychos, monsters, badass enemies, and collecting guns, then this is the game for you!
#4 – Far Cry 3
“Did I ever tell you the definition of insanity?” That’s exactly what this game is to play. It really does show the break down of the human through the game’s insane narrative. The basic concept is this, you’re stuck on a group of small islands in the pacific ocean and you’re being hunted by two insane drug lords and slave traders. You’re only goal is to survive by any means. It is an exhilarating rollercoaster ride that’ll keep you on the edge of your seat. Also, Vass Montenegro is amazing in this game.
#3 – Halo 3
Many of you probably expected this game to show up on this list eventually, and why wouldn’t it? This is probably the greatest Halo game in the entire series. No game ever came close to this popularity. It was the most anticipated title and the most successful. From the gameplay, to the visuals, and even to the story, this game scored on all fronts. The best Halo game in the entire series, in my opinion. Check this one out!
#2 – Left 4 Dead 2
There is no other zombie game out there that can top the style and gameplay of Left 4 Dead 2. Nor is there any other zombie would play. This game is one of the best co-op games I’ve ever played, and I still to this day continue to play. Whether it would be for PC, PlayStation, or Xbox, this game is a spectacular blood-fest to behold. If you love killing zombies in the best and most intense way possible, then I recommend you pick up this masterpiece.
#1 – The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
This was bound to be my top choice. Skyrim does the one thing not many RPG games do anymore. Give you full and total freedom to do whatever you absolutely want. You could go evil, or be the hero. You can be a vigilante, or be a law abiding citizen. You can live in a home, or live a life of adventure. You can be a vampire, or a werewolf. You can be a mage, or a knight. There a no limits (aside from the boundaries of the world) to what you can do. It’s your game, so why not go truly make it yours!
Well, that’s my list! What are your favorite video games?
