My Favorite Video Games

This list is not really in any order. Remember this is just my opinion. I do not claim these are the best. As you can probably tell I am not much of a competitive gamer. I find it to be repetitive killing people on the same maps over and over. Plus I really like having a story to follow. It gives purpose to my playing. I would appreciate any recommendations especially for PS3 or PC.
