    10) Super Mario III (NES)
    [​IMG]
    Best selling NES game, and for a reason. Without a shadow of a doubt, it is/was the best Mario game to date. So huge, and with so much depth.


    9) Pacman (Arcade Coin-Op)
    [​IMG]
    Legendary, old, yet a classic and still ultra additive. My personal favorite from the 80's. I would live for the quarter (25 cent piece), just to play this game.


    8) Tetris (Multi-platform)
    [​IMG]
    Simple game, yet addictive and challenging. The only puzzle game that attracted a huge diverse audience.


    7) Final Fantasy III (SNES)
    [​IMG]
    Arguably the best Final Fantasy game from the series. At the time - break through sound, graphics, and game play.


    6) Mario Kart (SNES)
    [​IMG]
    Racing around with go carts? Cartoon graphics? Well, this is quite possibly the best racing game ever made. You can just pick up this game and start playing.


    5) Dragon Warrior IV (NES)
    [​IMG]
    This does everything a RPG should do.


    4) Mortal Kombat II (Arcade Coin-Op)
    [​IMG]
    The best fighting game ever. The graphics, sound, and deep character depth makes this one a classic. Not to be confused with MK I, MKIII, and MKIV, which were all pieces of shit.


    3) Dragon Warrior I (NES)
    [​IMG]
    Pure RPG. No fat.


    2) Doom (PC)
    [​IMG]
    Although Wolfenstien was the originator, Doom and Doom II took FPS to a whole new level. This game changed the way we played PC games.
















    and.... Number 1 is....




































    1) Legend of Zelda (NES)
    [​IMG]
    This is what a video game is all about. You get lost, find a map, find your way, and have fun.

    Great games that are worth mentioning (It pains me that there isn't enough room in the top 10)
    Resident Evil
    Quake III
    Chrono Trigger
    Street Fighter II
    Starfox
    Final Fantasy IV
    Castlevania
    Tekken II
    Pong
    Double Dragon
    Strider
    Wonderboy in Monsterland
    Bionic Commano
    Megaman (take your pick - they're all the same)
    Mario 64
    Kid Icarus
    Super Mario World
    Lemmings
    Secret of Mana
    Mario Bros.
    Super Metroid
    Space Invaders
    Final Fantasy VII
    Myst
    Halo
    Daytona
    SimCity
    Donkey Kong
    Counter-Strike
    Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
    Blah, and 1,000 more..

    Definately add Castlevania Symphony of the Night... that game is just... incredible. :bowdown:

    Good list though! :bigthumb:

    I could never make a list like this though, there are just TOO MANY good games. A good 80% of them being older games.

    all of you are too fucking young to appreciate good video games, especially coin ops.

    Defender.
    Joust.
    Missle Command.
    Galaga


    For PC:

    Zork
    Doom
    Ultima (without this, there is NO zelda)

    Consoles:

    Contra (also a bitchin coin op)
    GT
    Zelda
    Mario Brothers

    many others... but seeing shit like "half life" on this page is fucking stupid. What did half life bring to the video game? Very little. It took an already in place video engine and put another story on top of it. Thats not a game of all time :nono:

    Ending is the downfall of this game, it simply says The End....
    SO ANTICLIMACTIC! a simple text outro would be all i need to feel a bit more resolution on the game.:wiggle:

    now you're making me want a nes emulator :o

    any suggestions?

    Only thing you need is a PC and controller, every game you can think of is out there on ROM, go get you some emulators.

    Unless you mean you actually want to own the original hardware, in that case, start hitting yard sales.

    I was looking for SNES and NES emulators and ROMS today, and had no luck. :( All I got were tons of pop-up ads and redirections.

    half-life revolutionized FPS as much as Doom did.

    it created "smart" enemies, enemies that fought back as smart as you fought them.

    it created a new breed of puzzles that were more realistic than getting keys.

    it redid story telling without tons of naration

    half-life isn't known as best game of the year by tons of publications, and best game for the PC by some publications for nothing.
