My most favorite game is definitely Zelda! From A Link to the past till The Wind Waker, I love them all.
Also Gothic 1 and 2 (3 was bad and arcane was just shit)
Also Diablo 2 has a place for top 10.
Of course minecraft, didn't played it for years but I was one of the first alpha players, was really awesome (before it became Microsoft and mainstream)
And of course abe's odyssey and soul reaver.
Also the curse of monkey Island (1&2) and Jazz Jackrabbit
Ps: and of course exiled kingdoms
I dismissed at first... just from naivety, but when I was late teens my friend got me playing Ocarina of Time
on Emulator and of course it turned out to be a masterpiece, and a lovable story... I really could say a lot about it. The way the world was designed to have late game secrets in full view, like that guy on the roof in that villiage (If you remember) I think Nintendo are quite good for that. On that note it was quite a challenging game to be fair, In an acceptable, engaging way, of course masterfully crafted to be so.Windwaker,
the same thing but I didn't complete it, that first village was beautiful (Not being too sentimental here) with its music and setting by the sea, and that kid running round with dribble on his face (If you remember?) and of course the whole pirate thing was pretty cool.Majoras Mask?
have you played that one? Wow what a game! What type of mind would come up with something like that!
Ok, so Minecraft
I had a brief phase of it, but on PS3 late after its release. I don't know anything about it's alpha phase but I totally understand what you mean. Usually good things get exploited and watered down by big companies.The Curse of Monkey Island
I had it on freeware, of course only a small portion of the game was available, yes it was a masterpiece of story telling, with it's snide humor and the whole Pirate thing, but I didn't get to play it much.Diablo
I'm gonna shock you but I've never played it, In fact I've barely even seen any footage of it. I know of it's reputation though, I should give it a try one day.
