If I could only have 10 video games

GotGame: Steam sales, Humble Bundles, GoG, Amazon, and even traditional retailers have made it easier than ever for the common man or woman to build a gaming empire in his or her own basement. The digital age has made our culture one of excess, long distanced from a past when a single dresser drawer could contain the average collection. What would happen if this now familiar excess ceased to be an option? (Donkey Kong Country, Elite Beat Agents, Mario Kart 8, NFL Blitz, PC, PS2, PS3, Retro, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Wii U, World of Warcraft, WWF No Mercy)

What a torturest question to ask? I have to pick 10 from this?
WeAreLegion  +   358d ago
Minecraft would definitely be in there, for obvious reasons.
Shadow of the Colossus
Fallen Earth

That's a difficult question... :/

I respect your opinion, even though it resulted in the worst list ever.
AndrewLB  +   358d ago
Agreed. I guarantee he's one of those kids on Xbox Live with the high pitched voice who never shuts his mouth for hours on end. You know... the ones that give you that burning desire to jump off the nearest bridge? lol.

I sense sarcasm in Paddy95's list

Too much awesome?

too much troll
GeofferyPeterson  +   358d ago
Too little open-minded, game-loving, mind-expanding titles. Too much single minded, animal killing, brain washed, FPS exclusive loving numbness. Maybe you should see someone?
AndrewLB  +   358d ago
Yeah. A shrink. lol. Or a rubber room.
Metallox  +   358d ago
I agree but come on, Modern Warfare 1 is AWESOME!!! I'm a fanboy of that game, seriously.

I thought it was funny! Gave me a nice chuckle, thanks!

Lol, pretty sure this is a joke post, if not it should be.

I don't need 10, Dota 2 is all I need
theDivision  +   358d ago
The Division
Dark Souls
Falout NV (If Fallout 3 would be bumped up graphic wise would pick that too)
TLOU Remastered
One of the CODs I think Black Ops is the one I'm thinking of
Deep Down
Assassins Creed Unity

A lot or titles not out yet but they all have aspects of what I am looking for in a game. The Division is my number one but the rest are not really in order.
MelvinTheGreat  +   358d ago
Can i borrow your time machine?
theDivision  +   358d ago
Hahaha, I was referring to if I could only have 10 games those are the games I would want choose to own when they come out. The ones not out yet have piqued my interest enough for me to commit to them.
AndrewLB  +   358d ago
Oh man... here comes a rabid fanboy who is clearly beyond the point of no return. Not only is his SN a game that's not out yet, but half of the games he lists aren't even out yet. I'd hate to be stuck with that list after a few of those titles end up being complete failures.
theDivision  +   358d ago
I'd love to be able to see the future like you can. It would have made making that list a lot easier. How can you make any assumptions about something that hasn't come out yet? I am a rabid fanboy beyond the point of no return because I know what genres I like and those games fall into that genre? I'd rather be hopeful to the future than have a negative attitude towards progress and possibility.

I'm not making a list of the best games ever, I'm going for games which I (or you?) could theoretically play over and over again forever.
By the way do we have an internet connection in the scenario?

1. Demon's Souls
2. Minecraft
3. Nethack or Angband?
4. Tetris
5. Street Fighter II Turbo
6. Mario Kart Double Dash
7. Gran Turismo 4
8. Star Control II
9. Chrono Trigger DS
10. Deep Down

I might be going out on a limb with Deep Down, but if it is indeed going to be like a Souls-esque combat system mixed with random dungeon and enemy layouts with RPG elements like rogue then what will there be not to like?

And I'm from the days where buying a new game was usually always a gamble. So, here I am taking my last theoretical chance at the satisfaction of discovering a great game from a gut instinct and some screenshots.

Luckily for me though this scenario isn't happening.
Unluckily for my wallet and girlfriend however...

DougLord  +   358d ago

Didn't like the authors list very much.. while there's some good games up there. the replay value is bunk on some of those.
