Having recently finished 'Mass Effect' for the Xbox 360, I began thinking that that very game might have found a way into my personal 'Top 10' best games. That in and of itself got me to thinking: what are my 'Top 10' favorite games? How has that list changed in the last few years? Here's a quick rundown.
1- The 'Thief' Series
2- Ultima VII: The Black Gate
3- System Shock 2
4- Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem
5- Mass Effect
6- The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
7 - CastleVania: Symphony of the Night
8- Super Mario Galaxy
9- The 'Half-Life' Series
10- Super Metroid
And, if I'd go just a bit further to 15, you'd find these games... A sort of 'honourable mention', if you will.
12- The 'Ratchet and Clank' series, in particular 'Up Your Arsenal' and 'Tools of Destruction'
13- Any Harmonix game (Amplitude, Guitar Hero 1 & 2, Rock Band)
15- Diablo 2
