John’s 50 Favorite Games of All Time (50-41)

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


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


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


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


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


41) Driver: San Francisco


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?
