Top 10 games

It is difficult to come up with a top 10 list of anything.

For a start no two people will agree on these things. With video games there are so many it is impossible that everyone will have played all the best games.

I also find that my list changes over time, a lot of the time depending on mood.

Then, what does it mean to say best – how are you judging? With games, best gameplay, best graphics or most ground breaking. Most lists are a combination of these.

So instead of going for best – I’ll go for my favourite right now at this moment in time. The list is pretty nostalgic and I guess is in order of my attachment to them. It might be different this time next year.

Here is 20 while I’m at it. I did not give great thought to the order, particularly as I went further down.

The only series to appear twice are Zelda and Halo. In general I just went for my favourite in a series.

  1. Zelda Ocarina of time
  2. Goldeneye
  3. Halo 2
  4. Metal Gear Solid
  5. Half Life
  6. Resident Evil 2
  7. Tekken 3
  8. Mario 64
  9. Metroid Prime
  10. Banjo Kazooie
  11. Mario Kart 8
  12. Street Fighter 4
  13. Devil May Cry
  14. Gears of War
  15. Wind Waker
  16. Halo
  17. Monkey Island
  18. Lylat wars
  19. Crazy taxi
  20. Fifa 11
  21. Shenmue

Updated – forgot metroid prime

My best of XBox 360

So here is my review of Xbox 360 so far.

Gears of War(1 & 2) and Batman Arkam Asylum(did I spell that right?)  were so good.

Also loved Fifa 10 and 11. Halo 3, ODST and Reach were a bit disappointing but still good.

Never got into GTA, enjoyed the Co-op in Resident Evil with my brother but didnt think it really brought the series along from Resident Evil 4.

Mass Effect 2 was really good aswell even if I only got half way, my Xbox broke and never got back into after that. Orange Box was fun aswell and probably the best value at time of release.

Really liked art style in Street fighter four and is as playable as eva.

So my favorite? Assassins Creed II or  Bioshock 1/2. The control system in Assassins Creed, a bit like Batman was perfect and the story telling and atmosphere in Bioshock was definitely UNREAL.

Overall I think XBox is great except for the issue with overheating. Dont thank MS for being on my third Xbox. (Should be called ‘Xbox about 290’ because your Xbox is probably gonna break at least once a year.)
