Game List - Updated!

New content!? No wai!

Actually, yes. New stuff on the ol' Blog. Well, kinda new. I've been hip deep in a Fellowship application. It's due at the end of the month and I've still got lots of work to do. But, I can still take breaks, every now-and-then, until then.

My thoughts have been playing around a list of video games I posted some time ago. I couldn't think of a complete list of my greatest, most-favoritest games ever (found here). I think I've got a good list now. I'll give short comments on each. They aren't in any real order, as my feeling towards favorites changes as I play different games.

Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
My favorite Zelda game, probably my favorite game of all time. I got it the weekend it came out, with my own money! Well, Birthday money, but it was mine. I think it's the first thing I've ever bought that wasn't candy or pop.

Super Metroid
Awesome platformer. Probably my most-rented game. I must've rented a dozen times. Games were pretty expensive back then, and rented was actually practical. I've got it on the Wii's Virtual Console now.

Super Mario Bros. 3
Another awesome platformer. Great content, lots to explore, lots to find.

Final Fantasy Tactics
My most played game, definitely. I've probably put 500 hours into this game. Not-even-kidding. Now that there's a new version, there's even more for me to play. I studied and explored every aspect of this game, even going into frame rates and CT mathematics.

Diablo 2 and Diablo 2: The Lord of Destruction (most likely, soon to be, Diablo 3)
The only PC game on my list. Awesome on so many levels. Great party game, great internet game, great solo game. Necromancers are my favorite class. I've built every kind imaginable across all patches. Currently, I only have two, as I've lowered my playing of this game lately (addictions are rough). They are a Skeleimancer, a summoner focusing on raising skeletons, and a Boner, a spellcaster focusing on the Bone Spells.

Super Smash Bros. Series, currently Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Me and my brother have been playing this game for almost its entire history. We played Melee while we were both in High School and College, and we've taken up Brawl to a degree. Not as much, as we've both grown up, but still a fairly heavy degree. We both pay some attention to the official character rankings. In Melee, I played Link, who's alright (mid-tier), and my brother played Fox, who's the best in the game (god-tier). We've since moved on a bit. He picked up Ike and King Dedede, while I went to Toon Link and Wolf O'Donnell.

Well, there they are (again, kinda). My favorite games.

Well, they're my favorite games. The cream of the crop. Not just games I like because they're good.

Great list! I think half of those would make appearances on my list as well. :D

It's funny how some critics say video games are so detrimental, yet we can associate them with so many good memories.
