Behold! I have been tasked with creating a list of my 50 favorite games of all time.

Now, you should know that these are not the highest rated games. Instead, I have chosen the 50 games that have meant a lot to me for various reasons. You will probably have some issues with my choices (I will admit I chose some weird games), but that’s why they are mine. Trust me, I have my reasons for choosing these games.

With that in mind, let’s get this show on the road!

 

50) Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds

Someone combined Age of Empires with Star Wars. What isn’t fantastic about that?

 

49) Zombies Ate My Neighbors

It was pure joy destroying zombies with squirt guns as a child.

 

48) Contra 3: The Alien Wars

ContraIII

My brothers and I played Contra 3 for hours on end. The bosses seemed gigantic at that age.

 

47) No One Lives Forever 2: A Spy in H.A.R.M.S. Way

NOLF2

A humorous take on psychedelic spy movies with an added cooperative campaign.

 

46) Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater

Tearing up a mall while collecting VHS tapes and listening to the Suicide Machines was endlessly entertaining.

 

 45) Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons

BrothersBrothers

The only video game to ever make me cry. It was simple, yet beautiful.

 

44) Serious Sam: The Second Encounter

The Second Encounter made the weapons better, the battlefields bigger, and added a chainsaw.

 

43) Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy

Star Wars - Jedi Knight - Jedi Academy

Jedi Academy wasn’t the best Star Wars game ever, but it gave you the ability to be an evil Rodian with a double-sided lightsaber.

 

42) Worms World Party

Worms-World-Party-3

User-created maps, flying super sheep, and ninja ropes made this one of my most-played LAN party games.

 

41) Driver: San Francisco

DriverSanFrancisco

The story may have been slightly dumb, but I could drift a Dodge Neon while running from the police. Who cares about a story at that point?
