My Favorite Games

I've had a few people ask me what I thought was a good game since I tend to rag on quite a few, so I will list below some of my Favorite Video Games.

Yakuza Franchise
Heavy Rain (Top 3 All-Time Favorite)
Alan Wake (Top 3 All-Time Favorite)
Demon's Souls & Dark Souls
Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy
Dead Island (Top 3 All-Time Favorite)
Silent Hill 2 & Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
Metal Gear Solid 2, 3 & 4 - 4 is my favorite of the entire series
Lost Odyssey
Mercenaries 1 & 2
Forza Motorsports Franchise
Max Payne Franchise (#4 All-Time Favorite)
Fallout Franchise
Elder Scrolls Franchise (Though Bethesda does a horrible job of creating a world, reusing textures like crazy)
Call of Duty 2 *ONLY*
Grand Theft Auto Franchise
Just Cause 2
Magicka
Mass Effect Franchise
Dragon Age: Origins (Not #2)
Company of Heroes Franchise
Half Life 2 & Extras
Resident Evil Franchise
inFAMOUS
Killzone 1 & 2


And more, though these are my fav-favorites.



As you can tell I really enjoy games with either Amazing Stories or Great Gameplay. My Top-Favorites are story games though, but games that let the player carve out a piece of the world for themselves like Mercenaries and Fallout/Elder Scrolls really appeal to me as well.

Big-Time Franchises like Gears of War I don't particularly care for, as GoW got real boring for me and I've never finished the entire campaign for any of the franchise. I don't think Epic Games does a good job at making a story, as all of the elements of the game that are supposed to be emotional are horribly executed.

    1. Oh I do love the Zelda games, but this post was mostly about the Current-Gen-type games, though I will update this list as time goes on to show people all of the games I love and hopefully somebody finds a game they never knew about and start playing it and love them.

    1. Oh yeah the Legacy of Kain games were great for sure. Red Faction was amazing and playing Multiplayer with friends was incredible; getting to blow up entire levels and having so much freedom, just awesome.

      Of course the Starcraft's and Warcraft's were amazing as well, can't go wrong with those.

      You got some good games in your list, I love many of them.
