Generic Top 20 Games?

Post by 3DOKid » Tue Jun 14, 2011 6:10 pm

Obviously, since you are all here, your favourite games will all be 3DO [/cough] but aside from 3DO what's you top 20 all time favourite games? Games you played and after about an hour you realised it was awesome.

In no particular order, just as I remember them:

1. Ridge Racer Arcade.
2. Sega Rally 2 Arcade
3. Jackal Arcade. (I could beat this on one credit :) )
4. Hard Drivin' arcade
5. Starwars Wireframe Game. (Use the force Luke -- which button is that?)
6. Dodge 'em Atari 2600
7. Dragon Ninja Arcade
8. Killing Cloud (Atari ST)
9. Dizzy. (Spectrum)
10. Robocop (Spectrum)
11. Missile Command (2600)
12. Space Shuttle Simulator (2600)
13. Uncharted 2.
14. Resident Evil (PS1)
15. Ace Combat 4 (PS2)
16. Walker (Amiga)
17. Raiden DX (PS1)
18. Paper Mario 2 (GC)
19. Tekken 3 (PS1)
20. Virtua Fighter (arcade)


(Honourable mentions too: Crazy Taxi, GTA3, Elite, Silent Hill, Uncharted, Enduro Racer, Pac Man, Command and Conquer 3...)

Tough not to have any 3DO games in the list. But I'll try ...

(in alphabetical order)

-Beneath a Steel Sky (needs a sequel so bad!)

-Broken Sword The Shadow of the Templars (but the whole series is great)

-Mario Series (most of them, but mainly 3, 64, & Sunshine)

-Mario Kart series (most of them, but mainly Double Dash & 64)

-Metal Gear Solid The Twin Snakes (but the whole series is great)

-Resident Evil series (most of them, but mainly the 1st game, the GC remake, and 4)

-Splinter Cell 1 & 2

-Zelda series (most of them, but mainly the original & Wind Waker)


That probably 20 when you factor in sequels.
Most wanted - Eye of Typhoon, 3DO Magazines issues #14 & #15, Pro Stadium, Defcon 5

It's OK. It can't possibly be worse than the absence of any 3DO games... ;)

Ok, here we go. This was quite difficult I have to say, but here's my list and just like everyone else, not in order of preference:

1 ) Creatures 2: Torture Trouble (C64)
2 ) Mayhem In Monsterland (C64)
3 ) Fantasy World Dizzy (C64)
4 ) Bubble Bobble (C64)
5 ) Paradroid (C64)
6 ) Scramble (Vectrex)
7 ) Solstice (NES)
8 ) Jurassic Park (Game Boy)
9 ) Metroid Fusion (GBA)
10 ) Eternal Darkness (Gamecube)
11 ) Mario Sunshine (Gamecube)
12 ) Mario Kart Double Dash (Gamecube)
13 ) Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door (Gamecube)
14 ) The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker (Gamecube)
15 ) Mario & Luigi: Partners In Time (DS)
16 ) Super Mario 64 DS (DS, obviously)
17 ) Pinball Fantasies (Amiga)
18 ) Resident Evil 4 (Wii version)
19 ) Donkey Kong Country Returns (Wii)
20 ) Metroid Prime (LOVED this on Gamecube, even better on Wii)

If I had to choose just ONE game from all of those non-3DO games, it'd be Metroid Prime either on GC or Wii, easily.

Honourable mentions go to:
Sonic 2 (Mega Drive), WarioWare (GBA), Worms (Amiga), Aliens (Amstrad CPC)

Getting all nostalgic again now....

Vance must have done some kind of Jedi mind trick on me, because I forgot to add the Shenmue games. 8)

You gotta delete atleast 5 from your list. :wink:

Btw, props for putting Mega Man 3! People always say thats when the series started to dip, and how its not as good as 2, etc... but its probably my favorite also. I mean, it introduced Rush!

The early games were classics for their time ... but the series has been milked something fierce w/little innovation. The first three are certainly worth checking out. I suggest the Anniversary collection which has 8 games from the Nes/Snes/Psx. Very old school.

Neo Geo version yes? Because the PS1 version is just a bit too hard to be fun. I love this game too.

Did you ever play Megaman 9? I think it was on Wii and may have been download only (not sure, it may have been a boxed game), but it's the official 9th game in the series and they went back and made it look just like the first one :lol:

Haven't played 9 or 10, yet ...

I may download them on VC eventually, but there are a couple other Wiiware games I'd want first.

I never liked the regular Mega Man games, to unforgiving and brutal. I only really ever liked X and that was about it for me. I do get the following the little dude has I used to play all the games as they came out and enjoyed the cartoons a lot even, but being honest I really never did care for the games that much even though I do like the character and the setting.

Had a check there and I was right, it's a download on WiiWare (not VC though, as it was a brand new game so you'll need to go to WiiWare instead):

Bad habit of mine ... I always speak of VC & Wiiware meaning one in the same, even though I know they are different.

I guess the Mega Mans would be 3rd on my wiiware most wanted list after Alien Crush returns & Blaster master something or other.

Lol, I know, I do that too. I don't think I ever downloaded any WiiWare. I downloaded quite a lot of VC games though, became very addicted to Pac Man, the old Marios and Sonic, but was left disappointed with the C64 downloads as they didn't allow stick control (which would be more like the old days) and instead you have to use the d-pads. As much as Nintendo's build quality is very good, it's extremely hard to pull off diagonals on their d-pads, making C64 games which require you to move in diagonals and/or jump and move (by pushing up and left/right) at the same time almost impossible to play.

Yeah oops! That's what I get for fast reading in the morning. And Mega Man 3 was the best of the series IMHO. all of the ones after that started to go downhill a little. 9 was just for the Wii but it's really good, and hard!

Yes Kid, Viewpoint on the NEO-GEO.
