Well just to show you how old I am, the last video game I ever played was DOOM and before that as a teen, it was all Atari games like PacMan, Ms. PacMan, Donkey Kong, Centipede, you get the picture.

A few of you actually know how YOUNG I am (by comparison) so it may surprise you to learn that my favorite game ever is Mario Cart 64, on the Nintendo 64, not a port. I could play that game forever and it would still be fun.

I do like the Portal games, and Assassin's Creed II and IV, and Fallout New Vegas, and Call of Duty 3 and World at War and MW2, and maaaaaaaaaaaaaybe GTAV...

Ah like blowin' things up!

Top ten favorite games? Alright, you're on. Mine are probably very different from most other people though.
1: Dishonored
2: S.T.A.L.K.E.R. (The entire franchise, because getting lost in Chernobyl is fun. The book it is based on is pretty good if you are into post-apocalyptic stuff as well.)
3: Battlefield 4
4: *EDIT* Unravel (A very, very good game. I highly recommend it so I won't spoil anything unless asked to)
5: Insurgency (The modding community for this game is great thanks mostly to Mr. Brightside, who is actually working for the company that made Insurgency. It works well on most PCs because it runs on the Source engine, but they plan to release a version on the Unreal 4 engine soon.)
6. Metro 2033 (The second in this list based in Russia, this one takes place in 2033/2034 and is very different.)
7: Rainbow Six Siege (A very different type of First Person Shooter, it isn't very fast paced but has a lot of tension.)
8: Bioshock: Infinite
9: Team Fortress 2 and Overwatch (I wasn't sure which I liked better, they're both pretty good.)
10: The Long Dark (A singleplayer survival game set in Canada, with support for literally every language on earth)

Another thing I would like to add down here, I found a game named Overgrowth by a company called Wolfire Games, it's in development but it is also based on rabbits and has its own webcomic to help convey the story.

I do enjoy a video game every now and then. I wouldn't really call my self an avid gamer, I don't keep track of new releases, I don't really actively search for new games to play but once in a while something will come along that perks my interest, then I get hooked until I finish it. Some of my favourites are: Monster Hunter Freedom Unite (most favourite, and the hardest game I've ever played. What I love the most is the rating of your armor and weapons take a backseat to your ability to observe and learn from your mistakes. So you could have the best armor and weapons in the game and still get your butt kicked if you make one wrong move), Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, Baldurs Gate, Icewind Dale, Skyrim, Red Dead Redemption.

10: Ty the Tasmanian Tiger (It's doesn't have the best platforming, nor the best collecting, nor the best story, but I still love my Ty)

9: Nancy Drew: Ghost of Thornton Hall (This game is brutal. For a Nancy Drew game. Scared me more than once. Not to mention that the story is really interesting and depressing, the music is excellent, and the puzzles, per usual, are suitably challenging and fun.)

8: Dragon Age: Origins (I don't typically like high fantasy type games, but Origins is an exception. I like how many different kinds of characters you can play, I like the companions, I like the environments they build. Origins is the only Dragon Age in my book)

7: Sonic Adventure 2: Battle (This game gets a lot of flak, but I don't care, I love it. I like the treasure hunting, I like the mech shooting, I like the speed sections. It's just a romp the whole way through. Nothing too complicated about the gameplay, fun, if flawed level design, tight control, it's really very enjoyable for me.)

6: Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky (No joke, this Nintendo Pokemon  game for little kids made me tear up. They went all out with the story and it's so sad. And the dungeon crawler gameplay translates perfectly from the main series games on top of that.)

5: Batman: Arkham Asylum (The game that got me into Batman proper. I wouldn't love characters like Scarecrow or Zsasz like I do now if not for this game. The atmosphere is thick and brooding, the environments are interesting, the combat is simple, but fun, and the sound effects. I love it when the bones crunch.)

4: The Witcher 1 (It's the most awkward, weird, funnily designed game I have ever encountered, but I love the low fantasy elements, I love Geralt as a protagonist, I love the story, and I love the detail put into the world and characters.)

3: Far Cry 3 (The source of my icon and an incredibly fun game with a great villain. You have no idea how much time I've spent replaying the game, over-analyzing it, and writing fanfics about it.  Far Cry 3 is the only Far Cry to me.)

2: Fallout: New Vegas (I have played this game so much that I know every corner like the back of my hand, I love it. I like how much choice you're given in who you want to be, I like the characters that make up the wasteland, unlike with Fallout 3, I genuinely want to protect the Mojave and its inhabitants. It's a game that really invested me. It's a hard thing to describe, really.)

1: Team Fortress 2 (This game. I love this game. I love the stylistic choices, I love the expanded world, I love the characters, I, well, I sometimes love the players. It has such character to it, nothing is ever boring. It's all so janky and weird and 60s and oh God, I love it)

This list is subject to constant, unending change. Consider this my favorite video games this week.

1. Okami - Hoo, boy. This game means the world to me. Besides being able to play as a wolf Goddess, the art style, story and characters are amazing. I've re-played it so many times, and cried each time. The soundtrack is beautiful, too.

2. Harvest Moon series (Particularly A Wonderful Life and Friends of Mineral Town) - Anyone who knows me knows I'm a sucker for farming games and Harvest Moon has been my favourite series forever. I love all of them. (Well now the series is known as Story of Seasons.) Harvest Moon is pretty much tied with Okami.

3. Pokémon Emerald/Red - Gosh, I love these games.

4. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City - The glitz, the glam, the gangs. Vice City will forever by my favourite GTA game (and with its killer 80s music, it's hard not to love it :D )

5. Fable series; mostly Fable 1 & 2 - The Fable series is altogether amazing and I could ramble about it all day. They're just so fun.

6. Shenmue - For a Dreamcast game, it's amazing. The amount of detail, the compelling story, the action. I highly recommend it if you haven't played it!

7. Alice: Madness Returns - I'm not one for spooky games but the haunting story of this game is beautiful. I love the creativity and it's incredibly fun. Not TOO scary either, so that's good for a scaredy cat like me :lol

8. Sonic The Hedgehog 2 & Sonic Adventure - Also many hours spent on StH2. Such a classic. And I adore Sonic Adventure despite the stick it gets. I loved it when I was I was young and I guess the sometimes ridiculous nature of it is just endearing to me now.

9. Skyrim - I can't believe I forgot Skyrim when I wrote this post. I adore this game, and have played it many times, because of the different routes to take. It's fantastic.

10. Red Dead Redemption - What a masterpiece Rockstar created with this one. Another RDR please. I was so emotionally attached to the game that it really broke me, without me expecting it. Incredible.

I could keep going on. Ahaha. So, honorable mentions: Spyro 2, Gex, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Saints Row 2, The Warriors, The Sims, Batman: Arkham City and Far Cry 3.

Right, it seems we have a bit of a gaming community. I seem to have a taste for obscure games, but I assure y'all I'm not a hipster. So, here's my poison:

1. BeamNG.drive - I absolutely love this game, more than any others. I bought it day one in early alpha, and I'm a senior member on their forum and I've made mods for it in the past. It's basically the best vehicle simulator the mind can fathom. Main reason I play video games and the driving force for my GTX 970. Honourable mention to Rigs of Rods, its predecessor which I also played before BNG.

2. Crimson Skies - From 1999, it's an amazing flying game with interesting dieselpunk planes and a great plot. Set in the late 30s in a alternate history America, it chronicles the tall tales and many lives of Nathan Zachery and his band of pirates, the Fortune Hunters. Loved this one back on my Pentium III rig, and I've got it to work on newer versions of Windows now.

3. Half Life series - THE quintessential person computer first person shooter. I played (and still own on disk) the first Half Life, plus Blue Shift, Decay, and Opposing Force. HL2 was the coolest thing of the mid 2000s, and the release of FakeFactory's remastering of HL2 made me love it again. I've sadly beat the game now, but I still love it.

4. Portal series - Brought "combustible lemon grenade" into my lexicon. Amazing first person science puzzle game with the most intriguing characters considering most of them are deranged artificial intelligences

5. FlatOut 2/Ultimate Carnage - Not an exceptional or memorable game, but I really enjoyed it. It's just brutal car racing and crashing, nothing more nothing less.

6. Grand Theft Auto IV - I liked V, but it's too two-dimensional and the multiplayer is a carcinogen. GTA4 was and is a masterpiece of technological and artistic aspects. Gritty, realistic, deep and serious, it's a brilliant game. Revived more so with the ENB mods. Nico Bellic is just a total boss, and his struggle with other characters makes this game GENETICALLY DIFFERENT, BABY

7. Legend of Zelda - Can't forget this one. I played OoT and M's M on N64, and I've played TP through dolphin on PC. I think I've also played Phantom Hourglass too. All great games, great soundtrack and amazing setting. Gerudo Valley is still stuck in my head

8. Minecraft - I've totally lost interest after it became the #1 baby sitter of twelve year olds, plus I don't care for what Microsoft has done to it. Either way, I got a kick out of this one when it was in Alpha/Beta.

9. FullAuto 2 Battlelines - Obscure Sega game for PS3, though it has genuinely great gameplay, graphics and story for such a mediocre release according to critics.

10. Super Smash Bros 64 - I haven't touched this game in a decade, but was mighty fun as I recall. Though I distinctly remember my game cartridge being corrupted and I had to play with all sorts of graphical artifacts and corrupted saves. Oh well.

Other mentions include TF2, Rainbox Six Vegas 2, Motorstorm Pacific Rift, NFS MW 2005, Cities-Skylines, Skyrim, Fallout 4, DiRT 3, and some others.
