A list of my 100 favourite video games of all time! (Work in progress)

A list filled with console games and PC games that both have been my favourites since my childhood and some that i've recently finished and found enjoyable.

These games can range from average to masterpieces (IMO of course), but something in all of them did make me enjoy playing them despite some flaws here and there.
A lot of these games are simply based on nostalgia so it is a very personal list. I just love video games! :)
Btw I'm 18 years old!

This list will take some time to get done because I will think about every entry and write my opinion and history about some of them, but I promise I will finish it sometime in the future.......and then maybe put together a top 10 ;)
I list the entries in year of release :)

P.S. I haven't played as many modern games as retro-and semi-old games just because as a young child I liked to stick to few games instead of many.
I own a N64, PS2, PS3 & GBA :)

Back during the end of the 1990s I did not know much about console-gaming but my grand parents had saved a used NES ,together with SMB, SMB2 and SMB3 that earlier belonged to my aunt.
From that time onwards, I had become a fan of video games. SMB was the very first game I ever played.

about a month later I tried it one more time to see if I could endure the fear.......I guess I succeded and I beat the game after been scared s**t-less several times.
