I’ve loved playing games since I was a kid. My world basically revolves around games since I can sort of relate every year of my life with one game that totally defined it. Over the years I have played many many games and have had really special memories attached with some of them. I would like to talk about my top 10 favourite pc games of all time. Let’s begin! This is going to be exciting. I will tell you about the game as well as what made it so special. Alright, also I will be doing another list of Top 25 of my most favourite games on my birthday coming next year on 31st March, 2019 so be sure to stay updated with my posts and subscribe to me everywhere so you don’t miss out. So without further ado, let’s begin!
10. Mass Effect 2
This game by Bioware is an absolute masterpiece. I played this game in around 2012 and was absolutely flabbergasted by it’s sheer brilliance. What is more interesting is that every action you take in this game shapes your storyline differently. Every decision you take matters and the game offers you with an extremely flexible way of being either morally right or wrong. You have to face consequences for all your actions. I found that extremely interesting about this game.
9. Road Rash
Of course, this game stays a classic in every 90s kids memories. I basically grew up with this game. I remember this game was so popular back in my childhood days that almost wherever I could find I computer this was the game that was always on it. It was an absolute joy ride to play this game and unlock different bikes and using cheat codes. Remember XYZZY SPOON Shift+1?
8. Midtown Madness
This was another classic in every 90s kids memory. This game had a lot of game modes but perhaps my favourite mode was it’s Cruise mode. To just pick up a car and drive through Chicago city while listening to my favourite songs was an absolutely amazing experience.
7. Roller Coaster Tycoon 2
This game will be etched in my memories as one of the most social experiences for myself primarily because I used to play this game with a bunch of my school friends. We used to gather together at one of our friend’s place and start building the park of our dreams. Even when I wasn’t playing with friends I remember spending countless number of hours perfecting the economy of my park and registering profits! It was the first game that gave me a taste of entrepreneurship in a way.
6. God Of War 3
I had not played the earlier God Of War games however I had heard a great deal of good things about the franchise. I was a bit skeptical about playing a linear narrative though and so wasn’t sure if I’d actually enjoy this button mashing experience. But when I started the game I simply couldn’t put the controller down. I still have to play God Of War 4. I’ll find time for that soon. I’ve seen a few trailers of the game and it looks drop dead gorgeous!
You can find an in-depth review of mine for this game here.
5. Uncharted 2
Uncharted 2 was a great experience for me because of it’s rich environments. The game is so good looking that it felt almost as if I was journeying with Nathan Drake, the protagonist of the game. Solving puzzles, collecting artefacts and exploring about history made this game extremely interesting. The rich graphics of this game kept me hooked on to it but unfortunately all good things come to an end. This game is a linear experience and so after the game was over I felt very empty.
4. Far Cry 3
I played Far Cry 3 very late. I think around 2014. Before this I didn’t have a PC that could support this game so as soon as I bought a new laptop with my first earnings this was the game I knew I had to play. And so began my quest as Jason Brody in the dense forests of Rakyat to liberate the island. The villain of this game is truly a masterpiece. Vaas was a highly philosophical maniac and his quote on insanity still sends chills down my spine in the way he said it. Scary guy!
3. The Last Of Us
The Last Of Us was an emotional journey. I cried right in the first 15 minutes of the game. I have also dedicated an entire post for this game. Check that out to understand my fascination for this game and what I learned from it.
2. Red Dead Redemption
This was a game that I was waiting to play since 2008 and was the primary reason why I remember I convinced my Dad to get me a PS3. It took me around 4 years to convince him to get me the console but I was successful and this was the first game I played on the console. Ever since Rockstar Games announced Red Dead Redemption I was totally in love with the game. I wanted to be able to play as a cowboy in the Wild West Era.
Before I reveal my number one game here are a few honourable mentions: L. A. Noire, Need For Speed Most Wanted 2005 edition, GTA San Andreas, Batman Arkham Asylum and Batman Arkham City. There are many more but I will cover them in my Top 25 list so don’t miss out to find out! Anyway, so here’s my number one pick of my favourite game of all time.
