Peter Molyneux's top five games of all time

Peter Molyneux is such an icon when it comes to making games that it's easy to forget he really likes to play them too.

So with that in mind we wanted to know: if he was stranded on an island with just five games, which five would they be? (Clash of Clans, GameCube, Half-Life 2, ICO, iPad, iPhone, PC, Peter Molyneux, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Wii, World of Warcraft)

No surprises there with ICO, everyone should experience that at least once. Good to see him give The Last of Us an honorable mention and he couldn't be more right, if half-life 2 didn't push the envelope in character driven stories then there may never have been a Last of Us, at least not as early as we got it anyway.

I played Half Life 2 years after its release and its still one of my favourite games ever, that proves how good it is.

I played it on my dreamcast just the other day. So sad it didnt get an 'official' release but it is still a great game to this day.

Blue shift is such a nice spin off as well.

A Much better list than I thought he would make.

Credibility point +1 moly

My top 5 would be completely different though, WoW would be in my top 10 probably. It just offered that much more than every game ever made.

Certainly there's factors other than the game itself that can make a game your favorite. Grim Fandango is one of my favorite games of all time not only because it was a great game, but it just conjures up the memory of my old apartment and my wife and I enjoying gaming together when she really wasn't a gamer at the time. There are terrible games that bring a smile to my face just because of good memories I associate with them.

yes that game is phenomenal the rest i could've lived without playing like seriously...world of warcraft...clash of clans....half-life(it was good but not one of the greatest).

While not my favorite entry in the series (Majora's Mask) TP was a very solid and dramatic experience. It has some pretty fun bosses, sweet dungeons, great artistic designs, and all the fun gameplay we've come to know and love from Zelda. Let's not forget the horse combat.

The only real downsides IMO are not getting Epona's whistle until it's so late she's no longer relevant and the forced Wolf sections.

Interesting. Not many list TP as their favorite. It's great but usaully its between OOT WW MM and LTTP

KH, FF and MGS are easily in my top 10 franchises and I think FFXV, KH3 and MGS5 will be the best games yet in there series.

I loved Twilight Princess.
Williamson  +   768d ago
Twilight princess is on my all time favorite list as well. It was my first Zelda game at the time and I was hooked from the start and couldn't put my controller down(or wiimote in this case), the ending scene always gets to me as well.

Funny, i stopped playing the game on the Wii because of the controls. Hell, i stopped playing my Wii because of the controls.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   768d ago
Twilight Princess hellz yea that is by far my favorite Zelda game.
TheFamous1  +   768d ago
Ahh World of Warcraft nostalgia.

Well, maybe the guy is not a total tool. He doesn't have horrible taste.
azshorty2003  +   768d ago
Ah, it's his top 5 favorite games. I was going to say, did he even make 5 games that didn't suffer from severe over promises and disappointment?
DialgaMarine  +   768d ago
I actually have to give him some credit for this list. He demonstrated a huge amount of humilty and honesty, and didn't list a single project that he made or was associated with. I like it when developers do that. Shows they have an open mind.
