Keeping it to one game per franchise:

10) Metroid: Fusion
9) Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
Cool Halo: Combat Evolved
7) Warcraft III
6) StarCraft II
5) Resident Evil 4
4) Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword
3) Golden Sun: The Broken Seal
2) Mass Effect
1) The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

View user profile
1. Final Fantasy VI
2. Chrono Trigger
3. Undertale
4. Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
5. Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords
6. Mass Effect 2
7. Assassin's Creed 2
8. Batman: Arkham City
9. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
10. Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Wow. Did not think Ocarina would end up as #10. That said, with hindsight it's not all that surprising. In many instances my favourite franchises don't have a very strong representation when it comes to my favourite individual games. Kingdom Hearts, for instance, is one of my favourite franchises, yet not a single game from that franchise is on my list. I also found it amusing how many games on my list are the second game in their given series. I did not do that on purpose, I promise. There are so many games I wish I could give representation here, but, in the end, there can only be 10, so here they are.

Alright, we've got 20 participants now, awesome! A couple more would be be nice though. Maybe we can make it to 25? Hopefully some other people of the community will look into the forums and decide to partake in this thread.

I'll see if I can get some friends in on this so we can get more input. Don't worry, they're viewers of Arch, but they just don't post in the forums at all.

I have thought about the placement of these games for quite awhile and, as of now, here are my top 10.

1.) Super Mario Galaxy
2.) The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
3.) Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
4.) Banjo-Tooie
5.) The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker
6.) Super Mario 64
7.) Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4
8.) Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door
9.) Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2
10.) Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped

Ok...in terms of pure fanboyish favoritism, not actual merit...

10) Dungeon Master 2: The Legend of Skullkeep
9) Sonic 3 & Knuckles
8) The Dig(DOS)
7) Mario 64
6) Myst 2: Riven
5) Link's Awakening DX
4) Ultima 4
3) Zelda OoT
2) Sonic Adventure(DC)
1) Mario 3

This list is pretty surprising. I'm a story buff, but half of these are action/adventure games with little narrative. I guess I rarely replay story games or form strong bonds with them. For many of these 10 titles it's the immersion of the environment, visual and audio, that brings me back so often. It may also be evident that I don't play many games these days as the newest one on here is a Dreamcast launch title.

Honorable and obscure mention: Willow, Faxanadu, Little Nemo the Dream Master(NES), StarTropics, Strider(NES), Contra Hard Corps, Revolution X(Arcade), Dare to Dream: A Study in the Imagination of a Ten-Year-Old Boy, Castle of the Winds, Sonic Spinball(GEN), URU: Ages Beyond Myst, The Incredible Toon Machine, Mission Critical(DOS). The likes of Chrono Trigger, Banjo Kazooie, and Metroid Prime are above some of these, but they're not obscure.

Ok... Here goes.

#10: Baldour's Gate
#9: Super Mario Bros.
#8: Fallout 3
#7: Bravely Default
#6: Neverwinter Nights 2
#5: Neverwinter Nights
#4: World of Warcraft
#3: Mass Effect 2
#2: Mass Effect
#1: Warcraft 3

I tend to choose games that have had not just an emotional impact but that came into my life at the perfect time. When each of these games came out, my life was in a wreck of one type or another. The thing that really saved my life, was Mass Effect. I was at the end of my rope, emotionally, and got Mass Effect just before Mass Effect 2 came out. That was the first game in this list that actually made me want to press on. And I am grateful that I did.

Warcraft 3 holds a special place in my heart... but I won't go over the reasons here. Wink

Ok here is my list.   I haven't owned a console since the PS2 (not true, i actually own a Wii, but no game from there made this list) so most of the games will be from the 2000's or earlier.

Rankings were based on how much joy the game brought me. Thats it. It would be nice if I could do an in-depth rumination like Arch and come up with my top 10 based off that, but no, just based off simple joy.

#10) Curse of Monkey Island (PC)
#09) Crazy Taxi (Dreamcast)
#08) Dragon Age: Origins (PC)
#07) GTA: Vice City (PS2)
#06) Morrowind (Xbox)
#05) Sonic 3 with the Sonic & Knuckles Expansion cartridge (SEGA)
#04) Fallout: New Vegas (PC)
#03) Final Fantasy X (PS2)
#02) Knights of the Old Republic (Xbox)
#01) Metal Gear Solid 2 (PS2)
