28/100 best games

Randomly came across one of those ubiquitous ‘Top 100 Best Games‘ lists earlier and ended up surprised at the number of games I’ve actually played. Having primarily owned the Xbox and the 360 and not played too many classics I always find I’m lacking a lot of essential games.

Played games: 28
Completed games: 10
Only played the demo: 2

  • 1 – Portal – Never completed it, didn’t like the gameplay.
  • 2 – Tetris – Probably the first game I ever played on my best friend’s Gameboy when I was still in primary school.
  • 6 – Grand Theft Auto IV – Completed it, loved it.
  • 8 – BioShock – Completed it, loved it until the assembly of the Big Daddy suit.
  • 10 – Mass Effect 2 – Completed it, loved it.
  • 15 – Red Dead Redemption – Still playing, it’s good, but not great.
  • 20 – Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare – Never completed it, because of that annoying ferris wheel section.
  • 27 – Deus Ex – Never completed it nor played more than maybe ten hours each time. Have completed the two sequels though.
  • 30 – The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Still playing though I’ve not been to Skyrim since January. Not sure what’s keeping me away either.
  • 32 – Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas – Completed it, loved it.
  • 34 – Ms Pac-Man – Part of my misguided ‘I really should play these classics everyone keeps banging on about’ phase.
  • 35 – Left 4 Dead 2 – Played the demo – meh.
  • 40 – The Sims 3 – Occasionally I get the urge and then a weekend’s gone.
  • 42 – Halo 3 – Completed it, loved the multiplayer though thankfully never put in anywhere as much time as Halo 2.
  • 44 – Gears of War 2 – Played about five minutes of it, liked it even less than its predecessor which I didn’t think possible.
  • 49 – Assassin’s Creed II – Completed it, loved it. Didn’t like the first one though.
  • 53 – Tony Hawk 3 – Played it, it’s ok.
  • 58 – Counter-Strike – Played the Xbox version which I believe is much dumbed down. It was ok.
  • 59 – Burnout Paradise – Played it, but my favourite still is Burnout 3: Takedown.
  • 60 – Fallout 2 – Played it, couldn’t get into it. Ditto with its sequel.
  • 62 – Prince of Persia: the Sands of Time – Completed it, loved it.
  • 63 – Soul Calibur II – Played it, loved it which surprised me.
  • 69 – Psychonauts – Played it, never completed it, despite enjoying it. Just seemed a bit too weird.
  • 71 – Beyond Good & Evil – Completed it, loved it.
  • 77 – Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic – Completed it, one of my all time favourite games.
  • 83 – Tomb Raider Anniversary – Completed it. I’m a sucker for all things Lara Croft.
  • 94 – Castle Crashers – Played it, not really my thing.
  • 100 – Minecraft – Played the Xbox demo, not really my thing.
