@jipostus Nostalgia is a hell of drug.

@SabotageTheTruth Yeah... But again, Ocarina of Time is not a bad game by any means, If anyone says that, that's just a troll comment. But it's far from that perfection as so many fanboys says it has achieved.

Wind Waker is a "My First Zelda". Very easy. All of the regular enemies and most of the bosses are pushovers, and most of the dungeons are linear with too obvious puzzles. The gameplay matches the (admittedly well executed, at least in the HD port) art style. The only part that gave me any trouble was the Savage Labyrinth, which was done better in Twilight Princess as the Cave of Ordeals.
Pretty good soundtrack, at least. Not nearly as catchy or timeless as the OOT, MM, or even LTTP soundtracks, but there are some charmers:

I'm surprised by both of these. That Arkham City made it at all, and that Majora's Mask wasn't higher.
Surprised that Arkham city made it all? Out of curiousity, why?
It always seems to be pretty well regarded, and quite a few of us put it on the list.

No other Zelda has anywhere near the level of storytelling as Majora. It's heavy.
Lol, Twilight Princess has a scene very similar to Majora's dead-guy-gives-you-his-mask/soul set ups with Ralis's dead mom (among others).
"Anywhere near," ha! Zelda fans are silly.
Anyway, glad Skyrim got on here. Not stoked for the Souls games to ride their wave of popularity into the top 10 or so.

I voted for Ocarina of Time pretty high. Come at me bros. Last Zelda game I even finished.

Kingdom Hearts being 53 makes me sad.
Honestly surprised the Halos aren't higher, I'm one of the most anti-xbox people you'll ever meet and I'd still put Halo 3 deep in my top 15 games of all time.
Not gonna be happy when Ocarina of Time scums its way into a super high spot purely because it's on everyone's list somewhere around the top 20, but will be happy when the same thing happens to Dark Souls because it's infinitely better than the stuff it's beaten so far.

My surprise isn't based on anything concrete, now that I think of it.
I don't like the game, so I suppose that has some effect, but excusing that, it just never comes up when I talk to people about games. It just seems like the sort of game most people accept as good and kind of move on from if that makes any sense? I find it's more regularly talked about as a piece of Batman mythos (among many) than it does a superlative game in its genre.

I just went through and looked at my list of game to see what platform I first experienced them on, this is my result from most to least:
PS3, PC, Dreamcast, PS1, PS2, and then a tie between NES, SNES, N64, Arcade, Android, PSVita, and Ps4
So Apparently PS3 is my favorite console.

bioshock-was a game i wanted to like, everyone praised it. i got it on ps3 for cheap one time and tried it while i liked the setting first person games just arent my thing. and while its one of the better fps's i played it just wasnt my thing.
Final fantasy 6- a game i just didnt enjoy that much, while i liked it more then 8(i hate that game ) it felt clunky and slow but that may have been the platform i played it on's fault ill try to get a snes copy or a gba copy and see if it fares any better
uncharted 2- a great game just the second worst in the series they games each got better as they went.
31. Dragon Age: Origins
This is a game I really TRIED to get through, multiple times! It got everything I should love. Heavy story, cool characters and swords and magic. Im not sure what really put me off, I think that everytime I started the game, it was always at a really bad point when things all of a sudden got noisy around me and I had problems catching up to the story. Another problem I had were that I started too many sidequests and only played half way through on them. Then I never liked the graphics - even though I know what they say "playing a game for its graphics are like watching porn for its story".
29. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
I am not sure how many hundreds of hours I have spent in this game... I remember that a friend actually bought this to me as a gift on release day. I played as a Nord (kinda had to play something already representing me so well in a game) and I thought I had played like 4 hours when I looked at the clock and it was way past midnight. This world are so well built. It is as vast and open as many huge games, yet it never feels empty! I rather run to next place just to be able to suck in and explore a bit more of the world rather than fast traveling. I still haven't finished the main story haha. I always said "if there were a remaster I would buy this day 1", but now I dont think that I have the money for it - But perhaps after christmas I can dive in and fall in love with this again.
28. Final Fantasy Tactics
I tried to like this... I really did! I tried this and war of the lions on the PSP. I just couldnt... Maybe I wasnt cleaver enough at the times I played it, but the tactic battles just drove me crazy. I love the "main" series of FF, but tactics never appealed to me - Im sorry.
The only other Bioshock game, apart from Infinite that I have played. I remember that I thought this game had a really creepy yet cool atmosphere around it and the gameplay were really cool of its time. However, as I stick to 1 game per franschise and I got more blown away by Infinite I had to cut this from my list.
26. Final Fantasy VI
This intro still gives me goosebumps when I watch it. I remember seeing this and be like "huh.. I wonder how the older FF games are..." Then being blown away by it. It is in my top 3 FF games. It has music, characters, story and a world that is fun to run through. Despite its age I think its worth for ANYONE that havent played a FF game to give this a try.
25. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
I recently played through this for the first time in my life as I got the nathan drake collection. I know that a lot of people praise it (just look at the votes, durr). I couldnt really pull myself to like the combat in this game, which is a big part of it. This would of made my list if the combat would of been better. It has everything else for it. Characters that are some of the best written and acted I have seen, Nolan North are my hero! The story are awesome and it got a nice indiana jones vibe to it with cool action and fun platforming. I also got amazed over how good the animations are in this game. Its a really good game and I can see how Drake became a symbol for the Playstation brand - But yeah just fell short for me due to the combat (please dont hate me).

Good game, yeah that's all I have to say really, lol.
26. Final Fantasy VI
Great JRPG, I only recently replayed it on GBA and it still holds up pretty well, if Square wouldn't have been so anti europe back in the days and this might have been my 1st FF I might would rank it higher thanks to nostalgia.
25. Uncharted 2
Ugh, just glad it's not in the top 10 as I would have expected, but 4 probably is.
24. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
Besides the tedious wind changing another great Zelda game, and since the Wii U version eventually gives you the option to dismiss the wind changing, it's the superior version.

@Lotias Uncharted's combats is probably its biggest flaw, but for me it's not that bad. And your not hated, as that is a legitimate critique of the games. I don't play Uncharted for the combat, but for the story. Each game has a self-contained tale that is enjoyable enough for me to overlook said combat.
@Brannox Yeah Once I have finished part 3 and 4, I might actually replay them just to catch the story a bit more! I mean I LOVED the story and it really engaged me, but the combat were a bit messy for me which brought down the experience

23. Final Fantasy VIII (1999) - 151 Points - 6 Votes - Highest Vote: #1 Sheria
Platform(s): PlayStation, Microsoft Windows
Squall Leonhart is a young man in training to become of member of SeeD - a mercenary organization and the goal of all young students in Balamb Garden. Squall is not a particularly friendly guy and has troubles with his fellow students and teachers. On the eve of his graduation hostilities break out between the city-states of Galbadia and Dollet. As their final test, Squall and three other students are sent on a mission to assist in the fight against Galbadia. In the process they discover that there are other characters pulling strings from behind the stage, and eventually uncover a mystery that involves two decades of secrets hidden both from the world and from themselves.
Final Fantasy VIII is set in a "retro" environment reminiscent in some ways of the 1960's, with a few sci-fi and plenty of supernatural elements mixed in. The basic system resembles those of its predecessors: the player navigates a party of characters over a world map, accessing various locations and fighting randomly appearing enemies in turn-based combat of the series' trademark ATB (active time battle) variety. However, character development system has been re-designed.
Other Votes: BlazingBahamut (3.), Tearju Engi (11.), Exist 2 Inspire (9.), Divinity (5.), MCRMJ (6.)
22. Half-Life 2 (2004) - 159 Points - 8 Votes - Highest Vote: #4 Tokyo Slim, Exist 2 Inspire
Genre: First Person Shooter
Platform(s): Microsoft Windows, Xbox, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, OS X, Linux, Android
Following the period of instability caused by the events described in Half-Life, an interdimensional organization known as the Combine invades the Earth, defeating the human forces in the Seven Hour War. A Combine Citadel is erected in City 17, a town in Eastern Europe reminiscent of World War II ghettos. Dr. Wallace Breen, a human scientist, rules the city on behalf of his new masters. An energy field prevents humans from procreating, and no new children are born. Earth is turning into a grim, oppressive police state. Meanwhile, Gordon Freeman, the man who was at the center of the events that took place shortly before the rise of the Combine, awakens from his stasis and is inserted into a train to City 17 by the mysterious G-man. Gordon is soon brought into a resistance group, and makes a seemingly futile attempt to bring down the Combine and liberate the Earth.
Half-Life 2 is a linear first-person shooter with light puzzle-solving elements and many setpieces, similar to its predecessor in concept. The player guides Gordon Freeman through the City 17 and the wilderness that surrounds it. On his way, he'll encounter a few friendly characters, but also fight dangerous foes. The game features a realistic physics system: Gordon can pick up objects and toss them freely, and many of the puzzles are physics-based - for example, at one point the player has to weigh down a seesaw with bricks at one end to turn it into a ramp.
Other Votes: Dogtype (5.), TechnoRage1127 (15.), Browarr (8.), jipostus (17.), Faaip (12.), Brandon_Reister (24.)

VIII placed higher than Tactics? WOW. IT PLACED HIGHER THAN VI?!?! WHAT?!? This list is something else. I just said yesterday I did not like VIII because its story wasn't well executed (again, for me) and the junction system was a pain in the ass. Also, I failed to touch on the leveling mechanic made it to where it became incredibly imbalanced. I can't process this. I thought VI placing 26th was the biggest shock. Nope. This is INCREDIBLE. But it's clear: While there may not be as much love (quantity of votes) for VIII, those that do place it incredibly high.
As for Half-Life 2, it seems appropriate that it show up. In relation to the rest of the list, 22 seems about right ;-)
Good grief this list.........

FF VIII is unbalanced as fuck, true, but i love Story, Characters, Triple Triad and the Setting soo much that i don't really care. Still play it from time to time.
Half-Life 2 at 22. is just obscene, it should be in the Top 10 really :P
