Default What Are Your Five Favorite Games of All Time?

We do top whatever lists all the time, but this time we're not talking about legacies or quality or timelessness. We're talking about what are your absolute favorites, the games you love more than all others, all other qualifiers be damned?

For me, in order of release:

Final Fantasy IV
Super Metroid
Chrono Trigger
Okami
Undertale

What are your fab five?

Metal Black
Super Metroid
Bangaioh
X-Multiply
Darius Gaiden

In no order except perhaps for the first one. SM has been the most enduring love, but the romance with all of these is undying. I kind of want to include Silvergun but there's already one super-predictable game here. Batrider should be included too, come to think of it. Goddamned indecision!

My standard answer for this is:

Portal
Pikmin
Journey
Depression Quest
Super Smash Bros Melee

Although I'm replaying Mass Effect 2 right now and it's climbing up the list fast.

You quoted the BAD LIST. Had you looked a mere two posts up you would have seen the GOOD LIST.

No matter, I shall quote it here for you, so that you might drink deep of it's vast knowledge.

Chrono Trigger

Depending the day I MAY switch out any one of these with Persona 3 and 4 (as in both games. Never one or the other)

Easier picks:
1. FF6
2. Perfect Dark
3. Resident Evil 4

Tougher:
4. Soul Blazer
5. Imperishable Night

Although I don't actually meditate very much about if there is a real difference in favoritism between most of my, say, top 20.

Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword
Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Kirby Super Star
Persona 4

The first four are pretty firm and have been for quite some time. The lower spots change based on my mood.

Probably the only two games from this decade (2010 onward) that have a chance of slipping onto the list are The Wonderful 101 and Hearthstone.

This is hard. I feel pretty committed to the following five, but the latter two could drop out for something else depending on my whimsy:
Beyond Good & Evil
Super Metroid
Chrono Trigger
Hotel Dusk: Room 215
XCOM: Enemy Within

Persona 4, Skies of Arcadia, Mega Man 3, Splatoon and Bionic Commando are just lurking below.

- Dark Souls
- Ico
- Super Metroid
- Resident Evil 4
- Link's Awakening

Each of these is basically perfect in their own way. Not that they're without flaws, but that they get to the core of something inherently gamey. Just super good.

Definitely the best fighter ever when it was released. I don't keep up with the state of the art enough to comment beyond that.

I'm a giant fuckin dork of a certain age. If it's a problem we can go outside and handle it.

the greatest arcade gaming thing I ever saw was three dudes at California Extreme seated around a cocktail Warlords cab, with the fourth seat occupied by the pot, where they each ante'd a dollar a game.
