Nothing will ever beat the sense of awe i felt when i played this for the first time. Objectively it's not the best game of course but there is just so much nostalgia and great memories that i can't chose any other game.
When i made lists and something like that happend i usually just blanked the position and kept the rest without bumping up. That way only the points for the ineligible game are lost and the rest stays the same.
How in the world did Mafia II and Bioshock 2 not make the Top 25, that's shocking!?
My Top 8:
Mass Effect 2
Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
Red Dead Redemption
