Hello Escapists

I have always struggled to make up a list of my own top ten games as it changes daily if not hourly with me, depending on my mood I guess. Any way I set my stop watch to 60 seconds and made a list of they games that I have fond memories of.

Here is what I came up with.

#1 Another World/ Out of this World

#2 MYTH (search MYTH Amiga on youtube if you haven't heard of it)

#3 FTL

#4 Vagrant story

#5 Dark souls

#6 Wipeout 2097

#7 Batman Arkham City

#8 Company of Heroes

#9 Homeworld 2

#10 Zelda Links Awakening

My rules are this

You have 60 seconds (duh), list the games in the order you thought of them, every type of platform counts be it console, arcade machine, mobile phone, PC or Mac, just as long as you enjoyed it.

I was surprised by what I came up with especially MYTH I haven't played in 20 years but it must have left an impression.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

1. Xenoblade Chronicles
2. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
3. Mass Effect 3
4. The Witcher
5. Braid
6. Fallout 3
7. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
8. Mass Effect
9. Tales of Vesperia
10. Final Fantasy III (Final Fantasy VI)

Given my past lists, this one isn't too surprising. Xenoblade Chronicles, The Sands of Time, Fallout 3, and Oblivion are all common games on my favorite games lists. ME3, The Witcher, and Tales of Vesperia are normally on or nearly on the list. Final Fantasy VI isn't that common, but I do have very fond memories of the game.

The only ones I really can say are odd are Braid and Mass Effect. Braid was a fun game, but left a lot to be desired in its effort to tell a meaningful story, which is what it was designed to do. Mass Effect is probably the oddest one, as I almost gave up on the franchise from how bad that game was to actually play, and I still have no shortage of bad things to say about it. But, it was also one of the best written games I've ever played, and every time I feel like quitting it and never returning, I'm always drawn back so I can experience the story, world, and characters again.

Nope, I can't do this!!!!
My brain is so chaotic inside, I really question how it didn't yet become a happy little monster yelling with a sweet,sad voice "I want to think!!!! I want to think!!! Why I can't think dad? WHY???"

60 second isn't enough for me. I need more time........I NEED TIME! TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Btw, the ONLY game I think in 60 second is "Planescape: Torment". All the time.
And of course it is a good thing.

1. Skyrim
2. Mass Effect 2
3. Mount and Blade: Warband
4. Borderlands 2
5. Bastion
6. Legend of Zelda The Windwaker
7. Assassin's Creed 2
8. Shining Force
9. Dishonored
10. Farcy 3

The order and content of this list does tend to fluctuate but this is what I came up with in the time constraint.

Edit: After glancing at the other posts, it appears that the time constraint caused me to make the critical error of excluding Fallout 3. Not 100% sure where it would end up in the top ten, but it's definitely in there. Sorry Farcry 3.

Edited again because Borderlands 3 does not exist.

Ok, here we go.

1) Beneath A Steel Sky

2) Dune 2

3) Morrowind

4) Total Annihilation

5) TIE Fighter

6) Transport Tycoon Deluxe

7) Syndicate

8) Doom 2

9) Master of Orion 2

10) Blade of Destiny

Wow. Looking back at that list I'm surprised - not at the games that jumped to my mind straight away, but at the list of games now clamoring in my head screaming "Why didn't you think of me first?!". Good trick, OP. If you'd asked me to just make a list of the ten games that have left the biggest impression on me I'd have been here all day and still not have been able to decide.

Dark Souls
Armored Core for Answer
Resistance 2
Metal Gear Peace Walker
Monster Hunter Freedom Unite
FTL
Risk of Rain
XCOM Enemy Unknown
The Last of Us
Hotline Miami

I'd say that's pretty much right, although I've never thought about XCOM as a favourite game and it's a little odd that I chose Resistance 2 over Resistance, but I do take every opportunity to praise that game's class-based co-op.

FF10
FF9
Kingdom Hearts 2
Half-Life 2
Portal 2
Bioshock Infinite
The Last of Us
Mass Effect 2
Fallout 3
Super Smash Bros Brawl
Shinobido

I think highly of each of these games, but I'm a bit surprised at myself that I didn't think to include a Zelda title. I only had like 3 seconds left before putting in Shinobido; interesting that it's what I thought of :) I haven't played it in years.

EDIT: Haha! I just realised that I have 11 :p Woops!

Towards the end of the list it admittedly became more about frantically recalling any game that I enjoyed, 60 seconds was a pretty hard limit!

I came up with the order in 60 seconds easily, I just don't type quick enough to jot it down quick enough. It also helps most of the games have a similar title. :p

1. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
2. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
3. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
4. The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker
5. Pokemon Black Version
6. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
7. Super Mario Galaxy
8. Pokemon X Version
9. Halo 3
10. The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

Yes I am willing to admit my list is boring considering it is mostly made up of one franchise.
