10 Great Video Games

Published: November 11, 2013

Great video games with lots of replayability.

  1. Super Mario 64 (Nintendo 64)

    The first 3-dimensional Mario game ever! This was the first game I owned for the Nintendo 64. I was 3 years old, and this was the best thing I could have ever asked for. I would say it was the best day of my life when I received it.

    A great adventure awaits you! 

  2. Starcraft: Brood War (PC)

    This game is the birth of e-sports. If you are up to date with competitive gaming this should come to mind. Koreans are notoriously known for being the best of the best at Starcraft. If you're not familiar with RTS (Real-Time Strategy) games you should give it a try. It's difficult at first, but can be very fun.

    Starcraft 2 is available to play to play now as well. I would recommend Starcraft 2 over Starcraft: BW because its easier.

  3. Sunset Riders (SNES)

    Sunset Riders is a side-scrolling shooter on the SNES. Very good level design and enemies to fight. Its easy to play and can be played with a friend. Each level has a challenging boss, too.

  4. Metal Gear Solid 1,2,3 (Playstation)

    This defined my childhood. You must sneak around safely and get to the objective. The story is completely immersive. I found myself at the edge of my seat waiting for the next boss battle. I can say that Metal Gear Solid 1,2, and 3 are some of the best in the series.

  5. Super Smash Bros (Nintendo 64)

    I had 2 days to finish a large book report. Coincidentally that was the day Super Smash Bros. was released and available to rent. Needless to say I failed the book report. 

    It's a fighting game based off Nintendo characters. There's Mario, StarFox, Ness, Pikachu. It's absolute madness and loads of fun. (Bring a friend!!) 

    It's success has led to multiple sequels on Nintendo's consoles.

  6. World of Warcraft (PC)

    World of Warcraft is the modern day RPG. There are millions of active players. And it's been parodied numerous times because of how addictive it is. Many multiplayer instances (PvE or Player versus Environment) and a very active PvP (Player vs Player) scene. 

  7. Defense of The Ancients (Warcraft III mod)

    You might have heard of a game called League of Legends. Dota is how that genre came to be. 

    The game is like so: 3 lanes with towers in each. 2 teams of 5 work to defeat the enemies nexus, which sits at the heart of the enemy base. Minions, which are AI-controlled monsters spawn in each of the lanes. Players level up by killing minions and their opponents. And the gold which is rewarded is used to by more powerful items.

  8. Minecraft (PC)

    Minecraft was orginally a project on KickStarter. Now it's a giant operation.

    Its a simple game. Mine for blocks and use blocks to build things. Lots of other elements are thrown in to make it more of a Role-playing game. An outlet for creativity.

  9. Tony Hawk's Underground (PS2)

    THUG was the first game I've ever played online with a console. A memorable moment in my gaming career. A large feature of this game was the option to get off of your skateboard and walk around. This added a deeper level of immersion to the game. Of course you can't forget all the silly tricks and combos.

  10. Left 4 Dead series (Multi-system)

     

    Left 4 Dead is loved because co-op zombie killing with friends! Levels typically last about 5 or 6 minutes( less or more depending on the skill of the players). There are special zombies which can incapacitate you or attract the zombie horde. 

These are games I would recommend to anyone who is interested in gaming.
