The only videogames I could ever give a rating of 10

Despite thinking that films and games have the same entertainment value in general, I found games to have a lot harder work to find perfection, which might be the result of them being so much longer and more detailed. For example, I have like 300 movies that I rated 10 here (not necessarily rightful, but that's how I felt about them when I gave the rating), but there's such a small amount games to name among them. Here are the games that I could play over and over 'till the end of time, and never get bored of them. I'll also list 2 titles that doesn't have their own entries on this site (will probably update to more in the future), being not that known and/or independent free titles.

S.O.S. - a survival adventure on the Super Nintendo. This unheard gem is amazing in basically creating "Poseidon - The Game". You play as several characters on a ship that's about to capsize and keeps turning over. Each character has about 7 endings depending on how you escape.

World of Goo - a nice puzzle game with creative and addictive gameplay.

Yume Nikki - Either an intentional masterpiece that makes its gameworld feel empty and disturbing, or just and unfinished game that works the same way, I love this one and it meant a lot to me. After playing it to the end, it kept me thinking about it for weeks. It's freeware, so give it a look, though be warned, it's a love or hate type of game.

Every Day The Same Dream - a minimalistic existential flash game which can be finished in 10 minutes, but the visuals and music makes it a lasting experience. It's a bit sad though, which helps it being easy to remember.

Don't Look Back - a free game by Terry Cavanagh, it's simple and adorable, but not in the "usual" sense. Also, I like the overly nostalgic feeling.

The Binding of Isaac - Christ, this is weird, but an awesomely weird one. It's pretty much Zelda's dungeon system repeated in a randomized fashion, but you'll come back to play it more and more just because of the sheer amount of useful items you can unlock. Definitely worth its money, and as a plus, I recommend listening to some creepy music (like something by Nurse With Wound or Current 93 among others) while playing. Gives the whole atmosphere a new flavor.

Cave Story - something of a legend in indie gaming circles, one of the least repetitive games with great writing in my opinion.

To The Moon - I was really pissed off by the ending which I'm not spoiling here, but maybe it was the point. I don't know, I wasn't happy with it, that's for sure. Either way, it's very well written, and the gameplay while it's criticised, I think it's "enough" to be qualified as a game. It has one of the most memorable plot, characters, and basically it's very immersive. I found myself finishing it in one big run which is hard for me, seeing how I can't play more than 3 hours straight these days (this one took 6 hours, yeah I suck). Highly recommend it for anyone, though more sensitive people should bring some tissues.

1.
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (2003 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.6/10 X  
A republic soldier, training to become a Jedi Knight, is given the task of halting the conquest of Darth Malak by discovering the location of a weapon known as the Star Forge.
Director: Casey Hudson
“ While the rest of the list is loosely put in order, this one is my absolute favourite of all. It creates its own mythos and wonderful world the same way the original Star Wars trilogy did: using the best cliches of the best sci-fi movies, and modifying them to make them fit in its own world. It's not original to say the least, but it proved to be effective in the movies, and does so in this game. Replay value is really high, and it's a very lengthy game, which makes it worth its price even more than The Orange Box. Also, has one of the most intriguing plots I've ever seen in a game. ” - johnnydillinger
 
2.
Silent Hill (1999 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.2/10 X  
Writer Harry Mason finds that the sleepy seaside resort town he is trapped in is literally hell on Earth.
“ Definitely the scariest game I ever played, and despite having dated graphics and messed up controls, it remains my almost-favourite with the scare effects not being able to be reduced by the age factor. It also has the best Dark World in the series, I just feel uneasy looking into the infinite dark pits. ” - johnnydillinger
 
3.
Half-Life (1998 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.3/10 X  
You play a scientist who must make his way through a ruined underground scientific complex infested with danger.
Director: Randy Pitchford
“ Still think it's the best shooter out there. It's colourful and has a big variety in both weapons and environments. It kept me playing to the end, and I kept replaying it like every year once. The main selling point was the world Xen, which you enter at the end of the game. It was so sudden and such a radical change in environment, but it was just as amazing. The multiplayer is something that I love to remember; I loved it better than Counter Strike, despite being more primitive and just plain worse. ” - johnnydillinger
 
4.
Star Wars: Jedi Knight II - Jedi Outcast (2002 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.6/10 X  
You guide mercenary Kyle Katarn, who must stop the evil plot of a renegade Jedi by relearning his skills as a Jedi Knight.
“ Has a very good Star Wars feel to it. You'll meet familiar people in familiar environments, which almost makes it feel like a direct sequel to the original trilogy. It also has the best saber combat to date, only succeeded by a slightly updated combat system in its sequel. This is probably the best Star Wars game that has a close relationship with any of the movies. ” - johnnydillinger
 
5.
System Shock 2 (1999 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.2/10 X  
An agent is deployed on a mission to explore a distant planet, but instead wakes up from his cryosleep five months later only to discover that the ship's artificial intelligence has been corrupted and the humans infected by an alien race.
“ Probably the definitive sci-fi game to me. The plot is awesome, the narrative is amazing and the sound design alone makes it worth playing through. The gameplay is revolutionary (see Doom 3 and Bioshock using the same formula), and it just feels like the best hybrid of first person shooters and roleplaying games. Also, it can give me the creeps by its randomly placed enemies, and SHODANs voice is just plain unsettling. I wish I could love the first game as much as I love this. ” - johnnydillinger
 
6.
Silent Hill 2 (2001 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.4/10 X  
After receiving a letter from his late wife, from Silent Hill, James Sunderland makes his way to the town in an attempt to find her. Getting there, he will have to deal with his dark past, in a personification of true horror.
“ Don't think this one needs an introduction. It's scary (quite so), and features one of the most well-crafted plots in the industry. The gameplay is also polished compared to the first, and over the span of 2 years the visuals changed a lot, all for the better. ” - johnnydillinger
 
7.
Hitman: Contracts (2004 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.2/10 X  
In Paris, the wounded Hitman 47 remembers his missions he best remembers.
“ My favourite of the series, a little bit short but entertaining as hell. It has the best atmosphere and music of the Hitman games in my opinion, and that alone makes me want to play it over the other ones in the series. Other than that, it's the casual Hitman game, and that means an addictive and very much fun gameplay with lots of replay value. ” - johnnydillinger
 
8.
Hitman: Blood Money (2006 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.9/10 X  
A larger more powerful agency are systematically eliminating assassins in a series of hits, who are all from Agent 47's contract killing firm...
“ This one improves the already awesome gameplay presented with some previous titles, and still has the fun that is some of the biggest replay value, which became a trademark of the series. There are a lot of ways to finish a level, and that's why you'll never play the same game again replaying this. The music is even better than in Contracts, and though I like it better, Jesper Kyd wrote a more fitting soundtrack for Contracts. This one also has a riveting plot. ” - johnnydillinger
 
9.
Indigo Prophecy (2005 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.8/10 X  
A man is forced to go on the run after he unwillingly becomes involved in a series of supernatural crimes that have haunted New York City.
Director: David Cage
“ A cinematic adventure that is half written by the creator, and half written by how you play the game. Lots of people are arguing over how it gets off track by introducing those extraordinary sci-fi and fantasy elements towards the end of the game. To those people: did you really expect a game which begins with your main character being possessed by something to be a realistic one? ” - johnnydillinger
 
10.
Anachronox (2001 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.9/10 X  
In a cyberpunk future, humanity has several space colonies, and Anachronox is one of the worst. A down-on-his-luck P.I. lives in its slums. A strange and possibly senile little old man hires him to save the world, or that's what he thinks.
“ It pushed the boundaries of the Quake II engine in such a way that never ceases to amaze me. Was in production for a REALLY long time and still they couldn't finish it properly, which means the story is unfinished in the same manner as KOTOR 2's. It also means that the game is buggy, this time so much, that you can't even finish the game until you apply a patch for it. This is probably the worst game on this list considering its technical weaknesses, but it's such a blast to play through. It's a roleplaying game, which is heavily story-driven, and filled with jokes that actually work. If you want a taste of the game's humor, go watch the movie (which is basically an edited machinima consisting mostly of the game's cutscenes), but keep in mind that the game is 10 times the more fun. It's a must play. ” - johnnydillinger
 
11.
Monster in My Pocket (1992 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X  
Warlock sends out his henchman while the benevolent Vampire and Monster (of Frankenstein), shrunken by an evil spell...
Director: Shirô Murata
“ One of the best NES titles. Pick-up-and-play, and can be finished in an hour after you first beat it, but you'll replay it a lot regardless. Perfect fun game for Halloween, even if not remotely scary or serious for that matter. ” - johnnydillinger
 
12.
Heretic II (1998 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X  
A medieval action game that follows the story of Heretic.
“ A great action adventure game that offers you an amazing fantasy world. Love to play it every now and then. ” - johnnydillinger
 
13.
Command & Conquer: Yuri's Revenge (2001 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.3/10 X  
You play either the Soviet or Allied sides as you do battle against the mad scientist, Yuri.
Director: Joseph D. Kucan
“ I'm listing this one because you'll get the original Red Alert 2 to play this anyways, and this is just an upgraded expansion of the former. I like to think of it as the perfect strategy game, which does not require more than an hour to complete a single level (and that's a really hard level if you need one hour for it). It is also not insanely hard yet challenging. Pretty addictive. ” - johnnydillinger
 
14.
Hitman 2: Silent Assassin (2002 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.5/10 X  
Agent 47, a former high-target hitman for an international contractor, has spent his life hunting world-wide criminals...
“ This one simply perfected an "almost awesome" prequel, in a way of giving us the same unique gameplay's extremely polished version. If I have anything against it, it's the Silent Assassin ratings. They are almost impossible to get, and the way to get them is just ridicoulous and unrealistic. Still, so much fun. ” - johnnydillinger
 
15.
Super Meat Boy (2010 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.6/10 X  
Meat Boy goes to rescue his girlfriend Bandage Girl, who's been kidnapped by the evil Dr. Fetus.
“ An insanely tough platformer which never made me angry. Not even when it took 3 hours to complete a single set of 3 levels, each consisting of one screen. It pays the ultimate homage to all the old tough classics, while becoming a classic game itself. For 15 dollars, you'll get a game that's going to last 5 times longer than the singleplayer campaign of Modern Warfare 2 on the highest difficulty. Actually, make it 10. Completely worth your money. ” - johnnydillinger
 
16.
Bastion (2011 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.3/10 X  
After a cataclysmic event known as 'The Calamity', a boy wakes up and discovers the Bastion, a floating haven called home by a strange man named Rucks...
Director: Amir Rao
“ Well, I didn't like it at first look, but when that narrator started speaking I had that weird "Stranger Than Fiction" feel, and started laughing like crazy. Despite all that, the plot evolved into one of the most moving ones that I've seen in games, and let's just say that I didn't hesitate to start a new game plus after I finished it. ” - johnnydillinger
 
17.
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords (2004 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.9/10 X  
You play an exiled and depowered Jedi Knight who has returned to the Republic and must restore both your powers and the devastated Jedi Order to challenge the Sith.
“ This sequel disappointed so many fans of the original; it's unfinished and buggy as hell. It's like they always force Obsidian to release their games before they can properly finish them (just take a look at Alpha Protocol). I still love this one because it's not doing the same thing as its prequel, despite having almost the same gameplay. The plot has a completely different feel and the gameplay introduced minor things that set a huge background to the game's cast, which is the influence system. Might be a flawed gem, but I still call it a favourite. ” - johnnydillinger
 
18.
Silent Hill 4: The Room (2004 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X  
A man wakes up and sees himself trapped inside his apartment, which is completely locked and without a way out. Without clues of how that happened, he finds an mysterious hole in his bathroom that could be the exit.
“ Yeah, it has some of the worst gameplay in the series and it recycles all of the levels to extend the playtime, but it also features the best mystery in the series, and it's just as effective and scary. Another flawed gem that I'll like to the end of time. ” - johnnydillinger
 
19.
Super Mario Bros. (1985 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.1/10 X  
A plumber named Mario and his brother Luigi travel through the Mushroom Kingdom to save the princess from evil Bowser.
“ No matter how awesome all the sequels were, they never even came close to this one. ” - johnnydillinger
 
20.
Out of This World (1991 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.4/10 X  
A freak laboratory accident transports scientist Lester Knight Chaykin to a brutal alien world, where he must work together with a strange ally to survive.
Director: Eric Chahi
“ It's far from being my favourite, but I always felt like this was the absolute best videogame ever made. Go check it yourself. ” - johnnydillinger
 
21.
Carmageddon (1997 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.3/10 X  
Carmageddon is a vehicular combat game developed by Stainless Games and released June 13, 1997 for MS-DOS...
Director: Ilyas Kaduji
“ Mindless fun, it is. This controversial destruction racing game is just funny as hell (even if inappropriate), and the gameplay is addictive. The Splat Pack expansion is almost the same, but I found that the levels of the original makes it better. I'd also include the second game here, but for some mysterious reason I can't find a page for it. So IMDB has a page for the mediocre third game, but not the awesome second one. Huh. Also, stick with the PC versions of these games because all the console and other ports are just trash. ” - johnnydillinger
 
22.
Prince of Persia: Warrior Within (2004 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.8/10 X  
You are marked for death, yet you are unshaken. The impossible challenge you face has ignited a fire within your soul...
“ Fantastic sequel to Sands of Time, with the combat system being upgraded to an extent of becoming probably the best hack-and-slash game with the same amazing platforming elements as its predecessor. ” - johnnydillinger
 
23.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (2002 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.3/10 X  
After being released from jail, Tommy Vercetti left Liberty City for Vice City, a city overrun by the mob. Now, Tommy is out to make Vice City his home.
“ The series has its ups and downs, and for me this is the definitive GTA game. It features a wonderful sandbox city that looks awesome, and it doesn't feature stupid girlfriend sidequests and whiny cousins. Too much fun. ” - johnnydillinger
 
24.
Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones (2005 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.7/10 X  
The Prince of Persia makes his way home to Babylon, bearing with him Kaileena, the enigmatic Empress of Time, and unspeakable scars from the Island of Time.
Director: Kun Chang
“ The trilogy ends with this one, and it doesn't have too much more to offer as its predecessors. Fortunately, it doesn't need to do so, because the first two were fantastic to begin with. The trilogy's plot also gets a fairly good ending. ” - johnnydillinger
 
25.
Silent Hill 3 (2003 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.8/10 X  
The third game in the Silent Hill Trilogy. The heroine of this game is teenaged Heather who is suddenly...
“ Same as the other Silent Hill games, this one has a well deserved place among my favourites. ” - johnnydillinger
 
26.
Sanitarium (1998 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.2/10 X  
After a horrific car crash your character ends up in an asylum. You must find out how you came to be there and recover your identity.
Director: Martin Stoltz
“ A very unique point-and-click character study, even if a more primitive one. It always managed to surprise me and I kept playing just to see what it would do next. ” - johnnydillinger
 
27.
Batman (1989 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X  
Loosely based on the 1989 film of the same name, you play as Batman and fight through multiple levels of enemies and bosses, culminating in a showdown with the Joker in the bell tower of Gotham Cathedral.
Director: Keiichi Suzuki
“ Forget Arkham Asylum, this is the best game based on the Caped Cusader (not implying Arkham Asylum sucks, i loved that one too). ” - johnnydillinger
 
28.
Star Wars: Battlefront II (2005 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.8/10 X  
Play as the foot soldier of the galaxy's greatest factions and wage war across countless planets.
“ Has a total Star Wars feel to it too, and it has good battles on foot and in space alike. An awesome mixture of old-era and new-era Star Wars. ” - johnnydillinger
 
29.
Chrono Trigger (1995 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.5/10 X  
Crono, a young boy, is thrust to adventure by destiny to destroy an oncoming threat that will destroy the world in 1999.
“ This title got me into roleplaying games. Nuff said. ” - johnnydillinger
 
30.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.2/10 X  
Desmond Miles is trained to become a modern-day Assassin through the resurrected memories of ancestor Ezio Auditore da Firenze, who uncovers a massive Templar conspiracy in Renaissance Italy leading to the new Pope.
“ Surpasses a mediocre sequel in every way possible, and creates a Da Vinci Code-like mysterious background story. It's hard to decide wether the gameplay or the plot drove me to play it more. ” - johnnydillinger
 
31.
Limbo (2010 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.5/10 X  
A boy wakes up in a forest and sets off to find his sister.
Director: Arnt Jensen
“ Both the style and gameplay are satisfying enough for this to become a personal favourite. The narrative is unique and it's a bit hard to figure out, and then you'll probably not be able to figure it out completely. There's one bad thing about it, it's just too short. ” - johnnydillinger
 
32.
Tomb Raider (1996 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.1/10 X  
Lara Croft is the daughter to a rich aristocratic English family. She is also nothing like her family...
“ The first one in the series is also the best. That T-rex made me jump quite a bit when it appeared out of nowhere. ” - johnnydillinger
 
33.
Max Payne (2001 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.4/10 X  
A troubled NYPD cop is framed for murder and finds himself being hunted by the police, the mob, and a ruthless corporation.
“ Good narrative, inventive gameplay, and amazing style. The sequel is almost as good. Almost. ” - johnnydillinger
 
34.
Street Fighter EX (1996 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.4/10 X  
Director: Junichi Ono
“ Well, it's Street Fighter on a 3D plane and I love it. I killed so much money into the arcade, if only i knew back then that it had a Playstation port... ” - johnnydillinger
 
35.
Adventure Island II (1991 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.8/10 X  
“ "ADVENTURE ISLAND 2" - just to make sure you know which game this is. It has all the ingredients for a perfect NES game: enjoyable gameplay, great variety of environments, 4 types of dinosaurs to ride (seriously, every NES game should have this), and a great variety of enemies within a really long game. It always felt like a real adventure to finish it (did it only twice 'cause it's really hard). ” - johnnydillinger
 
36.
Alice (2000 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.0/10 X  
A game with an all new story that takes place after Lewis Carroll's stories. Alice must return to Wonderland and defeat the Queen of Hearts once and for all.
“ Quite a twist to the original tale, this features a style over gameplay, and it succeeds to amaze me with it. That doesn't mean the gamplay sucks though, it's just "alright". ” - johnnydillinger
 
37.
Half-Life 2 (2004 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.5/10 X  
Dr. Freeman is taken out of stasis by his "employer" to help rid the planet of invading aliens forces known as the Combine that entered through the portals he helped create.
Director: David Speyrer
“ While it's not as good as the first one (to me at least), it always felt like the "right" sequel to it. It still has a good variety of environments (minus Xen, which disappointed me) and weapons (plus a gravity gun, yay). This time the plot felt more important, and the characters were more detailed, which is great. Awesome game. ” - johnnydillinger
 
38.
Braid (2008 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.4/10 X  
A man, Tim, goes on a quest to save a princess from an evil monster.
Director: Jonathan Blow
“ While I was impressed by the ending scene, the big highlight for me was the fact that it used game mechanics as metaphors and didn't use any cutscenes. ” - johnnydillinger
 
39.
Jade Empire (2005 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.8/10 X  
As an orphan you grew up in the Jade Empire under the care of a strict yet loving master,who runs a...
“ Way not as good as KOTOR, but it's still a fun roleplaying game in the same style. After the perfection of Knights of the Old Republic, and before the overrated action-oriented Mass Effect - this might give you a picture of what it is like. ” - johnnydillinger
 
40.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2003 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.6/10 X  
A young prince with expert fighting skills acquires the Dagger of Time, and unknowingly releases the powerful Sands of Time with it. Now he is trapped in a palace with sand creatures and most undo the unfortunate deed he has done.
“ Great 3D sequel to the old classics, this game managed to fix what Prince of Persia 3D messed up pretty badly. It features one of the best gameplay sensations too, the time rewind ability. ” - johnnydillinger
 
41.
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (1998 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.7/10 X  
A young Kokiri boy discovers that his destiny is to free the Seven Sages and save the land of Hyrule from the treacherous sorcerer Ganondorf.
“ "THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: OCARINA OF TIME" - english title.
It's a very well known game and I'm not wasting your time explaining why it's awesome. Also known as possibly the best videogame of all time - though I'd object against that. ” - johnnydillinger
 
42.
Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2005 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.7/10 X  
A lone street racer must use his talents to rise to the top of the Blacklist, comprised of the 15 most elite drivers in the city of Rockport.
“ I found this to be the best NFS game. Cop chases, gentle amount of car costumization (probably the only time they didn't get carried away by this), and a nifty open world makes it a lasting experience. ” - johnnydillinger
 
43.
Return to Castle Wolfenstein (2001 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.4/10 X  
1945, The Nazis are planning to resurrect Heinrich I, after being imprisoned. It is up to B.J Blazkowicz, an O.S.A soldier, to foil the operation.
Director: Drew Markham
“ I like this over wolfenstein 3D, and not because of the updated graphics. It's for the awesome gameplay. An amazing fact is, while this game is a decade old now, it still has some working servers for multiplayer. ” - johnnydillinger
 
44.
Donkey Kong Country (1994 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.8/10 X

Director: C Stamper, T Stamper
“ With such a variety of environments and amazing graphics for its time, I always considered this to be a blast to play each time I played it. Was god hard though... ” - johnnydillinger
 
45.
Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest (1995 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.8/10 X

Director: Tim Stamper
“ Same as Donkey Kong Country, though at first I was skeptic about the pirate theme being able to give the player the same variety of levels as the first game. I'm glad I was proved wrong. ” - johnnydillinger

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.2/10 X  
Third time's a charm? Not for Donkey and Diddy Kong who have been captured by a huge robot named Kaos...
“ The last Donkey Kong Country game on the Super Nintendo, this is as much fun as its predecessors. ” - johnnydillinger

System Shock (1994 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.5/10 X  
Aroused by rumours of questionable experiments being conducted by the Troptimum corporation aboard their "Citadel" space station...
“ Not as good as its sequel, but it's still awesome and has the first step to the mentioned sequel's revolutionary gameplay. It has an intense gameplay with RPG elements, and the awesome cyberspace that was not included in the sequel for whatever reason (okay it was, but that was just an excuse of a cyberspace level really). If there's one problem with it, it's the controls, as they are really uncomfortable. Still, introduced the absolute best villain in a game, SHODAN. ” - johnnydillinger

Aliens vs. Predator (1999 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.1/10 X  
A first-person shooter (FPS) featuring three separate story lines for each of the factions; Aliens, Colonial Marines, and Predators. Unlike later titles the three campaigns are unrelated and independent of each other.
Director: Chris Miller
“ It's always fun to play, as it emulates the atmosphere of the movies effectively (mainly that of Aliens). It's a perfection of the Atari Jaguar game with the same name, and has a legacy which spawned a sequel just as good, and a remake(?) that sucks. ” - johnnydillinger
 
50.
Aliens vs. Predator 2 (2001 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.4/10 X  
A team of scientists have tampered in a realm of space that was to remain untouched. Guarded by a squadron...
“ Same as the previous one. This direct sequel creates a tense atmosphere, that's not as good as the first game's, but improves the gameplay, so it sort of compensates. I still can't tell which one I like better. Primal Hunt (the expansion) is fun, but it's definitely not as good as these 2 games. ” - johnnydillinger

Enter the mind of The Punisher, a vigilante driven by more than just revenge. Terrorize criminals using their own ruthless methods...
“ Gives the Punisher a totally fitting look, and the gameplay reflects the original character from the comics. This anti-hero game features the right amount of violence; not over the top, and not absent. ” - johnnydillinger

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.4/10 X  
You play a Republic clone commando who leads an elite strike team in the Clone Wars.
Director: Tim Longo
“ Well, this is another kinda different Star Wars, where you play as a leader of a clone squad. It's not very original, as in too similar to Halo in gameplay, but overall it's just a must play for the dialogues and the squad system. ” - johnnydillinger
 
53.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.7/10 X  
...On the small island civilization of Hillys, the DomZ creatures are a ruthless alien race which have invaded the Hillyan people...
Director: Michel Ancel
“ Not an overly original game, and it's aimed at a younger audience. Still, the atmosphere is lovely and the gameworld is a nice place to visit each time playing it. ” - johnnydillinger

“ Not a huge step forward from the original, but still a blast to play. So many different environments and enemies will make it really feel like an adventure. It is also kind of stupid, but the cheese factor just helps this title. ” - johnnydillinger

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.3/10 X  
Leon S. Kennedy, now a federal agent, is hired to rescue the president's daughter from a sinister cult.
“ "RESIDENT EVIL 4" - in case the title was not obvious. It introduced a great inventory system, and turned the series into a more action-oriented horror game, rather than survival horror. And you know what? I ain't complaining. ” - johnnydillinger
 
56.
“ A simple game that's not standing out from the crowd of action adventure platformers. Only give it a 10 because it was fun to play as a kid, and it was also fun to replay as an adult. Nothing original and extraordinary, but an example of something done just right. ” - johnnydillinger
 
57.
Worms 2 (1997 Video Game)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X  
“ Some radical changes since the first generation of Worms meant radical changes in the quality of games. After this one though, none of the titles came close to be as enjoyable. ” - johnnydillinger

You play a young Jedi Academy student who must help stop an evil plot by Dark Jedi to collect and use Dark Side energy for their own ends.
“ Only include this for its multiplayer, this is basically the only multiplayer game I play on a regular basis, and I did it for a long time now. I even joined a clan called Jedi Phoenix (look for us if you want a fun match), partially because the gameplay always brings me back to it, so it's better to hang with people I know. Anyways, the singleplayer campaign is mediocre, but the saber and force system is extended, which means a lot regarding multiplayer. If you want the singleplayer experience, go play Jedi Outcast instead. ” - johnnydillinger
