Seven Favorite Games

August 26, 2016

It's become a thing on the internet to put out a list of your favorite seven games. As I was listening to this particular episode, I decided it was time to put up my list.

Yes, the original Mass Effect is my number one pick at the moment, but what's on the list besides Mass Effect?

As a rule, I've decided that I cannot list series, which means each franchise gets a favorite pick.

The core list

  1. Mass Effect
  2. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
  3. StarCraft II
  4. Fire Emblem: Awakening
  5. Assassin's Creed II
  6. Deus Ex: Human Revolution
  7. Dragon Age: Origins

Obviously, other games by the same publisher are also solid picks. Skyrim is a great pick, Fire Emblem Fates is a great pick, the Assassin's Creed games are great, the Dragon Age games are fun, and so on. Among some of the other more memorable games, I'd list the following:

Honorable mentions

  1. Civilization V
  2. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
  3. Red Dead Redemption
  4. The Talos Principle
  5. Shogun 2: Total War
  6. The Witness
  7. Minecraft
  8. Fallout New Vegas
  9. Age of Mythology
  10. Sleeping Dogs
  11. Burnout Paradise

A special honorable mention goes to Urban Assault, one of the games I enjoyed so much during my childhood. I think it is likely that The Witcher 3 enters the list once I play it.
