All Time Top 25 Games

  • Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal#150 in All Time Favorite Games#1Ratchet & Clank: Up Your ArsenalVGHunter's opinion: Takes everything that was good about the first two and PERFECTS it. Fantastic gunplay, diverse and interesting weapon selection, fun platforming, hilarious dialogue, top-notch voice acting, great graphics, exciting multiplayer, this one has it all. If I HAD to have a complaint, the music can get a bit repetitive, and is pretty forgettable. And it's really quite easy, even on Challenge Mode. These are both hardly worth mentioning though, considering how plain FUN it is. I'll leave it at that, since I appear to be running out of synonyms for compliments. XD

Gameplay that's intuitive, stylish, and most importantly, fun. The time mechanics are handled fantastically, allowing players to actually learn from their mistakes while avoiding the frustration of having to restart entire levels (unless you run out of sand!). The evolution of the relationship between The Prince and Farah turns out well too, accompanied by a nice storybook-like atmosphere. The combat...well, the combat's pretty simple and straightforward, but it hardly takes away from the strength of the rest of the content.

  • inFAMOUS 2#218 in All Time Favorite Games#7inFAMOUS 2VGHunter's opinion: I'll admit, I wasn't a huge fan of the first one. But in inFAMOUS 2, Sucker Punch seems to fix almost EVERY SINGLE FLAW I could find with the first. New Marais, the New Orleans to Empire City's NYC, has a ton more personality than the first game's dull gray urban landscape, throwing in a ton more color and variety to the landscape. Of course, being a sandbox game at heart, this is a HUGE deal. inFamous 2 plays very similarly too its predecessor in terms of general control, but Cole's powers this time around are much more impressive, and make the whole experience SO much more fun to play.

  • The Longest Journey#362 in All Time Favorite Games#11The Longest JourneyVGHunter's opinion: Without a doubt the best "realistic" adventure game ever. Lots of believable, interesting characters, supported by some fantastic voice acting (especially surprising, considering the recording sessions were apparently rushed). Excellent story, great writing, and an absolutely amazing atmosphere in both dimensions. I love how it manages to be both sci-fi and fantasy without going over the top, but instead manages a perfect balance between the two.

  • Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria#807 in All Time Favorite Games#20Valkyrie Profile 2: SilmeriaVGHunter's opinion: As would seem to be the case with many Tri-Ace games, VP2 takes a while to get used to, but once you do, it never lets up. Nice artstyle, great music, interesting story, lots of variation through skills and stuff, etc. The battle system itself is not particularly intuitive, but once you get the hang of it, even random battles can be engaging. Voice acting is decent, if uninspiring, with the notable exception of Liam O'Brien, who KILLS IT as Lezard. I would have liked to see more depth brought to the backstories of the Einherjar, since they end up acting as little more than mooks, especially bland in comparison to VP1's companions. Though to be fair, the storyline in VP2 is a lot more focused than its predecessor, making this difficult.

  • Nier#517 in All Time Favorite Games#24NierVGHunter's opinion: Purely judging Nier from a technical standpoint, it's pretty darn average. Battle system gets the job done, sidequests are ridiculously repetitive, and the graphics are unimpressive (though not outright BAD). What sets Nier apart is the incredible atmosphere that very few titles have been able to pull off since the PS2-era. Intriguing story and characters, amazing soundtrack, great voice acting, and lots of variation. And of course, it goes without saying that if you haven't played through at least Ending B, you haven't truly seen just how good Nier can be.

7.0Good

The only other Prince of Persia game (post-SoT) that even comes close to reaching the heights of The Sands of Time. Controls pretty well, and the new powers allow for some neat platforming. I honestly don't remember the combat at all, though I don't remember having any particular difficulty with it. The charm of SoT is definitely present in some capacity again, though for the most part, there's no companion ala Farah to banter with. Still, if Ubisoft continues the series any further, at least they're on the right track.

Fun little indie platformer/puzzler. Not particularly hard, not particularly long, but it's at least entertaining the whole way through. Not a whole lot to say... >_>

8.0Great

As a big fan of Atlus, I had to play this one just for the story. I'm not usually one for block puzzle games, so I thought I'd just trudge through to get to the story. Ironically, my enjoyment turned out to be exactly the opposite of what I was expecting. The puzzles are actually really fun and challenging. Not a ton of games this gen have required actually thinking and planning strategies to move forward, so it's good to see at least someone doing it. Voice acting and music are fantastic, as expected from the Atlus sound team at this point. Wasn't really impressed with the story actually, so I guess it's good that the game itself turned out to be as much fun as it did!

10Classic!

Takes everything that was good about the first two and PERFECTS it. Fantastic gunplay, diverse and interesting weapon selection, fun platforming, hilarious dialogue, top-notch voice acting, great graphics, exciting multiplayer, this one has it all. If I HAD to have a complaint, the music can get a bit repetitive, and is pretty forgettable. And it's really quite easy, even on Challenge Mode.

8.0Great

Seems like it's always the ones you don't expect that turn out the best. Great puzzles that ACTUALLY MAKE SENSE, likable characters, some fantastic voice acting, with a couple exceptions, and a clever interface that helps lead you in the right direction, without being obvious. Still, it can be annoying to walk around examining EVERYTHING (maybe a complaint against adventures in general, though), and the story, while well presented, ends a bit rushed (though still quite chillingly). Definitely a recommendation overall though.
