I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my favorite games of all time. Because it’s something everyone gets asked at one point or another right? “What are your top five games of all time? Top ten?” It’s a pretty common question.
This has made me realize how hard it is to pick. Favorite game of all time is usually pretty easy but once you start adding more it just becomes harder and harder to pick. There are so many good games out there we’ve played that it becomes a real challenge to weed out which ones belong forever etched in our minds and hearts.
One common thing I’ve noticed is that most people tend to keep one game per series on their list. It’s almost like some unspoken rule. But i think it’s a good one. If this silent rule didn’t exist, many people would have their lists flooded with Zelda, Halo, etc. That doesn’t give other great games or series the love and attention they deserve. That’s not to say those games don’t belong on the list, this just gives more flexibility in terms of what to choose from.
Sure it might make it harder to pick, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. I think it’s great that it’s so hard to decide. It means we’ve had many great experiences with games.
Maybe I’ll share my top 10 sometime. Yknow, once I figure it out…
