View Full Version : Off topic post, What is your top 5?
03-01-2001, 06:48 PM
What is your top ten games of all time? I am a true hardcore gamer, being fascinated by the earliest systems. However, I will limit my top 10 to the most recent systems. This top 5 is in reference to the following criteria, overall gameplay (control), graphics, fun, Aura--this one has to do with the way you feel when you play, beat and replay the game. Does the game hold your interest, intellectually speaking? After these five, it gets really difficult to list them, there some really fun and good games, especially for the DC, although I still think everygame out right now, is missing something, something so big that I don't understand why the company could miss it. It is different for all games, but the majority lack heart.
2. Metal Gear Solid
3. Xenogears (Best story)
4. Final Fantasy VII (very influential)
5. Phantasy Star Online (probably the most fun overall of the games)
03-01-2001, 07:04 PM
Here's my top 10:
1. Chrono Trigger (SNES) (I still play this game on emulators.)
2. Final Fantasy VII (PC)
3. DaggerFall: The Elder Scrolls (PC)
4. Phantasy Star Online (DC)
5. Diablo/Diablo2 (PC)
6. Half-Life: Counter-Strike (PC)
7. Icewind Dale (PC)
8. Baldurs Gate 1/2 (PC)
9. Shenmue (DC)
10. Heroes of Might and Magic III (PC)

Hey Rei, sorry.
I'm not from IGN, in fact I can't stand their forums, but I was just wondering. The post started from my thinking about Shenmue. I just loved Shenmue and I was also thinking about Metal Gear Solid 2 coming out later this year. As long as there aren't alot of off topic posts, I think it would hurt too much.
03-01-2001, 11:35 PM
Hmm I guess the games that inspire me to be a game programmer are the only that can go on this list.
If its not here, its just another game. Keep in mind I haven't played every game known to man after the SNES was about 1 year old, so I may have missed out on a great game here and there.
Phantasy Star I, II and IV (Sega)
Phantasy Star Online (Sega)
Gran Turismo I & II (Sony)
Metal Gear Solid (Konami)
R-Type & R-Type Delta (Irem)
Shadow of the Beast (Reflections, Psygnosis)
Lemmings (DMA Design, Psygnosis)
Battle Squadron (???)
Herzog Zwei (Technosoft)
Quake World (id software)
Street Fighter II (Capcom)
Streets of Rage 2 (Sega)

Yeah IGN Sucks...
Check out an awesome gaming site that I work for:
I would have a PSO review up there but I haven't been able to stop playing long enough to write it.... http://www.pso-world.com/images/phpbb/icons/icon_smile.gif
We are in the middle of a site redesign so if things look silly it is only temporary.

Noooooo! Someone actually listed Final Fantasy 8 and Final Fantasy Mystic Quest. Nooooo!
Skies of Arcadia, best ever?? Hardly, it is a good game, and one of the best RPG's on the DC.
Ok. This is the first PS Game I have played, and while I have heard that they just threw on the title to attract PS fans, I am very interested in playing them.

03-02-2001, 04:25 AM

1) Final FAntasy VII (most influential RPG ever)
2) Final Fantasy XI (just to easy but very good
3) Metroid (Orginal NES version)CLASSIC!
4) PSO (of course)
5) Unreal tournament (best FPS ever)
6) Mega Man (orginal NES version) CLASSIC!
7) Cool Boarders 2 (the other ones suck)
8) Tekken Tag Tournament (best fighter)
9) Marvel Vs Capcom 2 (great fighter)
10) ToeJam & Earl (Don't ask i just like it)
and thats my list
03-02-2001, 04:54 AM
Okay, I think this is the second time I'll be posting, so bear with the newbie crap. Anyway, on to the fun games I play -
1) Crono Trigger.
2) Diablo, just the first one.
3) Final Fantasy 3 (Amazing soundtrack - has Dave Brubeck's Blue shadows in the Street, woo for SNES synth jazz tunes).
4) Subspace (Online pc game, needs directx, fun replay value - huge, too. Seen upwards of 150 users online at once in one arena, all shooting each other. Also a 2d, with a 3dish feel, space shooter). Warning - I found it addictive, and before PSO, this was how I spent my free time. See it at http://www.subspacehq.com.
7) Zelda: A Link to the Past
http://www.pso-world.com/images/phpbb/icons/icon_cool.gif Civilization (I loved Simant, too).
9) Seiken Densetsu 3
10) World Heroes II
Here we go:
1. Chrono Cross (I still think it beats out the original. I've beaten it twelve times now)
2. Metal Gear Solid (Can't waitn for the second one)
3. Phantasy Star 2 (A true classic)
4. Sonic 3/Sonic and Knuckles (Kinda overlooked, the pinnacle of 2D platformers)
5. Chrono Trigger (had to put that in)
Chu Chu Rocket and Typing of the Dead, two of the craziest games to ever hit US shores. Yay Sega!
03-03-2001, 06:52 PM
Goin with RPGs this time, because RPGs are the games I usually play, and excluding PSO, cause that's an online RPG:
FFVII (Yeah, baby)
Skies of Arcadia (Yeah, baby)
