The Twenty Best... Of All Time...
« on: June 01, 2019, 02:41:12 AM »
So recently, for no particular reason, I made my favorite videogames list. The ones I consider the best of the best. It was originally supposed to be a "ten best" but there's just way too much fun stuff out there... so I made it twenty, and here's mine:

01) Arcanum: Of Steamworks & Magick Obscura
02) Mass Effect 3
03) Vampire, The Masquerade: Bloodlines
04) The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
05) The Walking Dead
06) Oxenfree
07) Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne
08) Dragon Age: Origins
09) Half-Life 2
10) Bioshock
11) Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut
12) Grand Theft Auto V
13) Jade Empire
14) Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
15) The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim
16) Resident Evil 2
17) The Pillars of Eternity
18) Darkest Dungeon
19) Fallout 2: A Post Nuclear Role-Playing Game
20) Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2

I could deffinitely change it as time goes along, I have my eye on both the Thief and Fallout series for examples, so those might actually get in as well.

If you had to make a list of your own, which games would be on it ?

Lot's of great games in the world for sure I could put to this list but here are few that comes to my mind at first:

- Deus Ex (1)
- System Shock 2
- Thief 2 (and 1)
- Mafia (1)
- VTM:BL
- Carmageddon (1)
- Blood

Those have probably influenced me the most.

I put the limit at 20... but who gives a fuck ?

Great choices as well, tons of games that have dissapeared from recent memory like Grim Fandango, The Punisher from 2005 and Earthworm Jim. I really have to deal with the Gothic series at some point as well.

Another one I forgot was Safecracker. A millionaire obsessed with safecracking put his testament inside a safe, the keys in turn hidden in others, every room and floor in his mansion is locked with their own riddles.... You got the idea. Sadly some puzzles are unsolvable unless you look for a walkthrought (o you are Stephen Hawking), but overall is a nice game.

I played Thief today for a solid three hours. If it keeps being good then it might just get a spot on my list.

Hardly twenty, but:

Fallout
Fallout 2 (Restoration project)
Fallout New Vegas (modded to hell to make it as close as possible to Fallout 2)
Wasteland 2 (Directors cut)
Bloodlines
Arcanum
Pillars of Eternity
and... ENDERAL!

Anticipating:

The Outer Worlds
Bloodlines 2

I own a copy on GOG that I have never played!  Does that count?  LOL 

Tell me a bit about it, what do you love about it?  What is the basic story outline, w/out too many spoilers?

In a couple of  words: steam punk + fantasy, a hell of a storylines, countless side quests, making choices and suffering the consequences.
