One of the best things about the world of gaming is the sheer number of games and gaming genres.
After PHC dropped his list of top 100 games I knew what had to be done. This is simple. What are your top 5 games of all time? You can put them in order, you can tell us why you love them, you can simply explain why you can't possibly choose - It's up to you!
Here are mine:
5. Super Mario 64 (Nintendo 64)
The 3D platformer that changed the way I view games. I've replayed it a dozen times and nabbing stars never gets old.
4. Super Smash Bros Brawl (Wii)
Brawl may be slower than Melee, but it has more characters, more stages and a much better single player adventure. It's the only game I've ever played competitively.
3. Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker (GameCube/Wii U)
My favorite Zelda title of all time. It's cartoony emotions and fantastic music never cease to amuse me.
2. Pokemon Red (Game Boy)
It's definitely the nostalgia talking, because just about every game since has improved the Pokemon formula, but Red was my first and still is my favorite Pokemon adventure.
1. Banjo-Kazooie (Nintendo 64)
Mario 64 may have started the 3D platformer craze, but darn if Banjo-Kazooie didn't perfect it in my eyes. With just the right amount of collectables and a cast of unforgettable characters (both good and bad) Banjo-Kazooie can't be beat. I play through it almost every year.
