I was quite surprised not to find a previous thread about this, or mabye i'm just an incompetent searcher... Anyway, I'd like to hear which games you think are the best ones ever made. Release date is irrelevant, so don't give me shit like "Pong is the ultimate shit cause there were no better games at the time". The gaming industry has become really huge, so naturally none of us played all the games out there, but out of your experience, tell us what you think!

Here's my list, I divided it to Multiplayer and Single Player:

Single Player:

1. Super Mario Galaxy (Wii)
2. Mario 64 (N64)
3. Zelda 3 - A Link To The Past (SNES) - Still haven't played Twilight Princess for the Wii but this one will be tough to overcome.
4. Wave Race 64 (N64)
5. Blast Corps (N64) - This one is not well known, it is very original and the most challenging game i've ever played. As Quakers and serious gamers I strongly recommend picking this one up, great challenge.
6. Pilot Wings 64 (N64)
7. Super Mario Kart (SNES) - Need to check Wii's version as it's probably better.
8. Street Fighter 2 (All Platforms)
9. StarCraft (PC)
10. Punch-Out!! (Wii) - SNES version is great too.
11. Arkanoid 2: Revenge of Doh (Apple IIGS/Arcade) - Without doubt the best berakout game ever made. It has beautiful graphics, crazy powerups, awesome level designs and is insanely difficult. Maybe i should've given it a higher spot. Arkanoid 1 is almost as good. Get either IIGS version or Arcade (Mame), the rest are bad.


MultiPlayer:

1. Quakeworld (PC)
2. Starcraft (PC)
3. Super Mario Kart (SNES)- Again, need to check Wii's Version.
4. Street Fighter 2 (All Platforms)
5. Saturn Bomberman (Saturn)- This is insanely fun with 8 people.
6. NBA Hang Time (Arcade, N64, PlayStation, Mega Drive, SNES, Windows) - Basically an improved NBA Jam, which you all know.
7. Super Smash Brothers (N64) - Need to check Wii's version as it might be better.
8. Pro Evolution Soccer (All Platforms) - The new Wii version brings complete new controls and radically changes the gameplay of this game, giving you an amazing control of passing, shooting, and handling your teammates. This was always the best soccer game on any platform though, so I won't even pick a version.
9. Super Soccer (SNES) - not really known, this is actually more fun than PES/FIFA IMO.
10. Tecmo Bowl (NES)
11. Chess - Couldn't find a 10th game at first so I added this one. Then I noticed I only placed Street Fighter 2 in the Single Player list, it should definitely be here as well. Chess is a brilliant timeless game, a bit nerdy though :/



I tried not including games from the same series twice (or even the same type) and just pick the best one, the only exceptions here are Mario 64 and Mario Galaxy which are both just light years ahead and so much better than any other games I've played, so i had to.
I have not played any Playstation3 or Xbox 360 games so these lists might've been a bit different, a game like Gears Of War would probably fit in, although most of my favourite games are from the 90s anyway. Also, as you probably noticed, I am a nintendo fan and tend to like their games a lot more, I'll explain why:


Nintendo:
* Precise/Intuitive gameplay,
* Tight Controls,
* Lots of creativity and imagination in design, the games are funny and never appear too serious, although they are.
* Innovative gameplay ideas. I hate doing things i've done before, they always manage to surprise me and come up with new challenges.
* Beautiful, simple, sharp, and very colorful graphics. Never showing you more than you need to see on screen, only what matters. Admittedly, this generation, their system (Wii) is much weaker than the competition, the graphics are hardly any better than the last gen.
* Beautiful melodic music even if sometimes it's just in midi.
* The games are stragiht forward without annoying story lines (cut scenes + lots of text to read and all that shit).

In other words, Coolness


Sony, Microsoft and their 3rd parties:
* Incredibly detailed graphics with HD and all that fancy stuff in this gen (which I don't care that much for and many games are actually over detailed IMO, I like simplicity just like in QW). I can't deny though, that some games nowdays are visually mind blowing. Check out these video previews of Uncharted 2 from E3: #1 #2
* Epic story lines, cut scenes, texts, speeches. I find these extremely boring and nerdy.
* The games usually just mimic reality and lack any kind of creativity or "fun factor" in them *cough* Counter Strike. Seriously, Who wants to die after getting hit by 1 bullet or when falling from a high place? Who wants to move as slow as a human and always be bound to physics as we know them? Time to open your minds!
* Music is more about sounding good and being well produced rather than just being beautiful.
* The general feel of games (physics, character movement + controls) tends to be "floaty". you don't always feel in complete control and that everything's up to you. Many games also have scripted movements/animations, you just need to press a botton and your character will pull off crazy jumps or attacks which you have no control of, not much challenge or fun when that happens.

In other words, Ultra Nerdishness
(Yes, there are exceptions here and there...)

Direct copypaste from my homepage:

TOP-10 PC-games of all time (updated 27.10.2008)

1. System Shock 2 (Looking Glass)
2. Deus Ex (Ion Storm)
3. GTA-series (gta3, vice city, san andreas) (Rockstar North)
4. Final Fantasy VII (SquareSoft)
5. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl (THQ)
6. Giants: Citizen Kabuto (Planet Moon Studios)
7. Star Control II (Accolade)
8. Far Cry 2 (Ubisoft)
9. Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines (White Wolf)
10. No One Lives Forever (Monolith)

Limited to pc-only titles. I could mention 8bit NES games since those are the games I've played the most but it's been 15 years since I last time touched NES, so I think it's best to leave them out of here. FC2 on that list is questionable, but I'll let it pass too, this time.

i can agree to Vloody's list including the general views and the stuff on nintendo. the only thing that i feel is missing is the mention of colonization/civilization series. or even strategy games in general (black&white, populous, c&c, warcraft). hmm you mentioned starcraft:/
also mario64 as one of the best is taking it a bit to far.

i'll get me an emulator and try blast corps

A draft list :p These are at least the games i've had the most fun with. I can't regard any singleplayer list that includes PSX/PS2/PS3 games but not the Metal Gear series as serious btw.

Singleplayer
- Metal Gear Solid 4
- Metal Gear Solid 3
- Metal Gear Solid 2
- Metal Gear Solid
- Contra 3: Alien Wars
- Diablo 2
- Command & Conquer Red Alert
- Resident Evil 1
- Resident Evil 2
- Deus Ex


Multiplayer
- Quakeworld (duh!)
- Total Annihilation (Too bad Starcraft received all the attention at the time. The revolutionary resource system was awesome along with some additional tools, like the demo recorder with all its features, that made the experience even better)
- Supreme Commander (The spiritual successor of Total Annihilation which kept the resource model and scaled things up even further.)
- Quake 3
- Starcraft BW (Although i can't play this shit myself, it has my respect :p)
- Rainbox Six: Vegas (Play this in coop and you'll know why )

I enjoy quite many games so I'll post some and most likely forget more than I remember

-Fallout 1 & 2 are perhaps the most enjoyable games I've played
-Many LucasArts adventure games, like Monkey Islands, Sam&Max, DOTT etc
-ES: Morrowind I enjoyed quite much because I enjoy the fantasy-medieval stuff and it had huge amount of exploring and quests. Oblivion was nice too but I lost my save and didn't play it for too long
-KOTOR 1&2 are exceptionally good while I don't usually really care about the Star Wars mythology or the stuff around it
-Final Fantasy 7 & 9 are both very good, and they are actually the only ones I've played
-Football Managers are a great way of passing time, while not as action-packed as most games, it keeps you entertained to the point you get furious with AI breaking tactics or getting an inhuman injury list consisting of first-team players
-Heros of Might and Magic 2, 4 and 5 suit my casual sense of playing
-PES 5 and 6 are nice fast-paced not-too-realistic soccer games I've played, while PES 2009 isn't that good at all
