The following are my current top 10 favorite games, with an example video and a short reason why.
10 – Star Wars: Battlefront II [Original; PC]
This isn’t the crappy EA one. I mean the original. Beautiful ‘Star Wars’ battles, no crap, and fantastic gameplay.
9 – Destroy All Humans! 2 [PS4 Remaster]
My favorite purely satirical game. Insanely funny with great game mechanics.
8 – Fallout: New Vegas [Ultimate Edition, PC]
A game with fantastic choice, an engaging world and intriguing quests.
7 – The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim [Special Edition, PC]
A clunky masterpiece. Sprawling, epic and also a bit wonky. I have a post that explains more.
6 – Resident Evil 4: Ultimate HD Edition [PC]
My favorite ‘Resident Evil’ game. Disturbing yet fun, well-executed and infinitely replayable.
5 – Mass Effect 2 [With Story DLC; PC]
My favorite, and the best, Bioware game. Amazing story, fantastic combat and a great ending. The DLC – mostly – is actually worth the price too. I have a post that goes into a lot more detail that you can read if you want.
4 – Fallout 3 [GOG’s Version; GOTY Edition, PC]
Crazily atmospheric and really feels like a post apocalypse. Great gameplay too. This video explains more of how I feel about it. Beware, as it does spoil most of the game. Recommended if you’ve played it or don’t care about spoilers.
3 – The Last of Us: Remastered [PS4]
My favorite story-focused linear game. Fantastic plot, characters and combat.
2 – The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess [Wii]
My current favorite ‘Zelda’ game. I still have several to play though. I simply just love it in a way that’s hard to explain.
1 – The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt [GOTY Edition, PC]
This is my favorite game so far. It allows immense choice without skimping on mass amounts of quality content. It’s only major flaw is its – occasionally – wonky combat. I have a post on it that goes into massive detail
