Topic: What are Your Top 5 Favorite Games?

Posts 21 to 34 of 34


It's very hard to narrow it down, but it could be these five:

Fire Emblem: Three Houses
I Was a Teenage Exocolonist
Jade Empire
Mass Effect 2
Psychonauts/Psychonauts 2 (it's impossible for me to choose one of these over the other, so I'll put them as one entry)

As you can probably tell from the above, my favourite games tend to be RPGs with strong, memorable characters. On that regard, Baldur's Gate 3 should probably be there too, but it still feels a bit too recent to be on an "all-time favourite" list. Let's see how I feel once I'm finished with my second playthrough that I'm doing with my girlfriend ATM.

Oh boy, I feel like I need to revisit the old thread and see if I posted there, and if so, what I said. My mind has gone all foggy on this topic.

My number 1 and 2 are never in doubt... Mario Kart 8 (/Deluxe) and Breath of the Wild. But what else makes my top 5 nowadays?

Feel like I could easily just say Super Mario 3D World, Wind Waker HD and Ocarina of Time, but there's bound to be some that are slipping my mind...

The Championship/Football Manager series and FIFA series certainly would deserve a place if I could consolidate them into one game. Tears of the Kingdom would be a contender were it not for Breath of the Wild. Fortnite has provided many great sessions with my kids. Halo CE was a memorable launch game experience when my bro got an Xbox.

You guys had me at blood and semen.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.

-Metroid Prime
-Paper Mario
-Super Smash Bros. Melee
-Mother 3
-The Orange Box

I've had this top 5 for more than a decade now and see no reason to change it. (though if I had gone all in on Smash Ultimate and/or if it had good online, maybe things would be different) Metroid Prime is first, the other games can be in whatever order, probably. Yes, I will count a collection of Valve games as one game, you can't stop me.

Honourable Mentions:

Paper Mario 64.
Toejam and Earl Back In The Groove.
Conker's Bad Fur Day.

These are based on how many hours I have spent (pretty much all +100), impact on my life to this day (be it themes, storys, music) and just plain having fun.



This list could change an hour from now because there are so many great games, I'm bound to be forgetting something.

TOTK/BOTW - tied for number one. BOTW was the best game, hands down, I've ever played. TOTK was better in every regard. It's too difficult to choose one, as one laid the groundwork and the other refined it.

Mario World - best Mario platformer which equals best platformer ever made. This game is still incredibly fun to play today.

Chrono Trigger - I played this for the first time maybe 10 years ago. Then I played it again. This has been my favorite RPG that I've ever played. The story, level of difficulty, charm, graphics...all top notch and tuned to perfection. Another one of my favorite RPGs, but not in my top 5, is Xenoblade Chronicles. It's close to making it, but the difficulty spike at the end really made it a slog (I put in maybe 70 hours, and just couldn't bring myself to grind/pursue sidequests after a point).

Metroid Prime (Remastered) - The best version of the best Metroid game. Played it when it launched, then again when it relaunched. The game is perfection.

The Witcher 3 - This game surprised me - I had heard great things, read amazing reviews, but that was not enough to prepare me for the incredible experience that I had throughout my playthrough. To me, this game is like Skyrim, but better resonates with me. A game that can be enjoyed, replayed, and most importantly, it's a blast to play.



This is going to be a mix of recency bias and nostalgia, so I'm sure this will change a lot.

  • Zelda: Wind Waker HD
  • Chibi Robo
  • Zero Escape Virtues Last Reward
  • Pikmin 4
  • 13 Sentinels Aegis Rim

I'll give honorable mentions to Nier Automata, Mario Sunshine, Baten Kaitos Origins (gamecube version), The World Ends With You (DS version), and Radiant Historia Perfect Chronology.

The only one I think that will always be in my top 5 are Wind Waker. I posted my top 15 a while ago and Chibi Robo wasn't even on there, but I've always loved it and just recently played through again which ended up growing my appreciation for the game even more. It has so much charm to it.
