20 Games Every Gamer Should Play

This was a really difficult list to make, to limit it to 20 games everyone should play. I know there's going to be a lot of upset people because certain games weren't included, but obviously I can't have them all in a list of 20 games. I tried to limit it to games that have aged well, thus excluding titles like Goldeneye 007 or Doom. I was tempted to put Tetris on the list, but I decided to leave it off. I also tried to keep a balance of modern and classic games. Anyways, here's my list of 20 games every gamer should play.

How about FFVII? Ico? Shodow of the Colossus? Silent Hill?

christian hour3189d ago

because those titles go without saying :P Everyone knows you HAVE to play those. But I was actually surprised at how decent this list was, it was nice and varied and had a bit of everything although maybe a bit too much RTS's :P I've played and enjoyed all these games. WOO!

AnttiApina3189d ago

Heck yes! I thought that the list wouldn't even remember THE game, but it is there! Deus Ex is a masterpiece and a classic! Everyone should play this game. The decisions and the atmosphere in this game are totally awesome. Good to see some games that I haven't played.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is really tempting. I shall get it soon.

If you don't have a PS3, you're gonna miss out on most of the best and highest rated games this gen.

Perjoss3189d ago (Edited 3189d ago )

i cant argue with that list, its perfect.
But there is a strange thing about these lists that include a lot of old games (nothing wrong with that but...) if you sat down to play metal gear solid now would you really enjoy it as much as MGS4:GotP?

edit: I also think many people will prefer the original half life over the 2nd one (but only if they played them both in thier prime, not years later).

Perjoss3189d ago

@ Saaking

there is only 1 ps3 game on there so I dont understand your comment.

justpassinggas3189d ago

Age of Empires II FTW! Every best game of forever list fails if it doesn't mention AoE2 so this list = win.

Sitdown3189d ago

I can see what Saaking was trying to say...but at the same, I feel they went overboard..........cause you don't have to own a ps3 to enjoy its games...there are plenty of dorm rooms across the world where there is only one ps3 present, and a non owner is still enjoying the titles.

Eamon3189d ago (Edited 3189d ago )

"If you don't have a PS3, you're gonna miss out on most of the best and highest rated games this gen."

But the only ps3 game there is Uncharted 2.

Either you didn't read the list properly or you're being a retard?

Back to topic: They should have added Final Fantasy VII or X. And probably Sonic the hedgehog.

AnttiApina3189d ago

I found Metal Gear Solid on the PS1 much more thrilling and more enjoyable than MGS 4.

ape0073189d ago

you must play this game before you die

best ps3 game ever

Madusha3189d ago

Great list, very well done. Gotta agree with all most all of them, especially Uncharted 2 :D

-GametimeUK-3189d ago

No final fantasy at all... I must say I am shocked at that

inSaneELF3189d ago

Yeah I wish I could have squeezed Final Fantasy VII on there.

SupaPlaya3189d ago

FFVI or Chrono Trigger to be on there.

The Emperor3189d ago

Number 7 was for sure the best. 12 disappointed me kinda. It made me second guess Jrpg's since then, I have bought Fallout 3 and Mass Effect and enjoyed them both, so idk if the Jrpg are getting better.

I'm really hoping FF13 will deliver, because if it will. . . well damn that would be sweet

MajesticBeast3189d ago

Replace splintercell with a better title like Chrono trigger or atleast a jrpg and replace metroid prime with super metroid cause it is just 10 times better rest i agree with allthough i would replace tf2 with counter strike.
