Ever since I can remember, I've been holding a controller. I've had many consoles, and memories with them too, which made me wonder, What are the top 5 games I've ever played? So, I decided to compile a list. This list is my opinion.
#1. Sonic The Hedgehog 2.
Yep. Sonic 2. Not 1. Why? I hear you screaming at your dogs...
Well it's quite simple. Sonic 2 took what had been a revolutionary platformer, added prettier graphics, faster gameplay, more complex levels, Tails and of course, the ability to spin, WHICH, to date is something I still wish I could do... Don't judge me. One of my fondest memories is easily, Escaping the Rising waters on Chemical Plant. Good god, the first time I played it, I almost had a heart attack.
#2. God Of War 2.
Ah. Now this, my friends, is something that will always stay with me. I'll never forget the first time I ripped a cyclops eye straight out of his head, with Kratos's cement like hands. Graphically, this game was stunning, the gameplay ran smooth as a peach, and the violence was on a monumental scale, which even made me cringe at some points. A lot of people say "It's easy to play God Of War, Just press Square." Them people are living on a chair of lies and hate. If it's that easy, just change the difficulty to "TITAN" and see if you can "Just mash square" then. The characters are memorable, the story builds from the first one, unveiling one of my favorite rivalries of gaming history (Kratos V Zues)and the bosses overall, are amazing. If you own a Playstation but have yet to play GoW, shame on you.
Visually, stunning, the gameplay was something so unique, it's unreal. Never in my life did I dream of being a wolf god, with the ability to summon a paint brush at will, so I could slash my enemies with a quite swipe. One of the best things about this game was the story. The fact, that even though the character you control doesn't speak, doesn't stop the ability for the character itself to grow on the gamer. I found myself actually caring about this wolf, who I'd just spent 3 hours painting with... If you haven't played it, I suggest you pick it up.
So, this short little list is just a trip down memory lane for me. This is my opinion, I'm sure you will have different ones, so please, no hate if you disagree. So guys, what's your top 3?
