Re: Best Video Games of all time Draft

Banjo-Kazooie was certainly on our radar, that game just bleeds charm and the level design is indeed fantastic.

Some things I was hoping to take in the next couple of rounds:

There's another pick we would've definitely made that Binkles and I are super passionate about, but I'd like to give him a chance to talk about it if he wants first, since he's the one that introduced it to me initially. I know he has a few others he felt pretty strongly about as well, so hopefully he can pop in with a few more.

Re: Best Video Games of all time Draft

If I had any more picks, I was going to go with:

Mega Man 2 - I'm honestly shocked this wasn't picked.

After that, in some order:

Team Fortress 2
Overwatch (not sure because it's so young)
Roblox
Wolfenstein 3D
King's Quest series
World of Goo
Left 4 Dead 2
Sim City
The Sims


And while I don't know if it would be in a top-100 of all time list, my favorite game ever is:

Baseball Stars (NES)

It was the first sports game on the NES with a battery backup so you could save seasons, statistics, etc., and I believe it was the first baseball game with that feature on any console. It was also the first - and this was my favorite part - that allowed you to create and develop the abilities of players throughout their careers.

Spoiler:



And obviously there are a bunch of arcade games, but I already picked Pac-Man, so really the list can end there.

Re: Best Video Games of all time Draft

Hmm that write up of Hollow Knight makes me want to get it, though I have yet to finish Salt and Sanctuary which it sounds similar to.

Baseball Stars is amazing and one of my most played games as a kid, but I have to say the last time I played it as an adult, it was kind of lame. A lot of the fun came from being the OP team with all the “real” legendary players i think.

Meh witness had some awesome moments - one puzzle in the last world might be my favorite puzzle ever - but I found the overworld not intuitive whatsoever. That being said I'd buy witness 2 immediately

I was just telling my wife about the game and saying how I probably wouldn't go back and play it much now (I do have it). And while there are other games in history that I think are better or singularly more fun (Overwatch or TF2, for example), Baseball Stars gave me the most fun for the longest period of time.


What I did was start with all rookies, name them after myself and my friends, then build them up into world dominators with gajillion dollar salaries.

Re: Best Video Games of all time Draft

If we're talking old school sports games, Tecmo Super Bowl def deserves at least a mention if not the crown.

Can't believe it took so long for Legend of Zelda, Shadow of the Colossus and Mario World to be mentioned.

All 4 of those are prob in my top 10 favorites of all time, so maybe I just have crappy taste in video games

Re: Best Video Games of all time Draft

Mega Man as a franchise
Blades of Steel
Tiger Woods Golf ad a franchise
Prince of Persia

Don’t know if any of those should make it but I think they’re all great

Re: Best Video Games of all time Draft

Earthbound and Shadow of the Colossus were also games I valued very highly. SotC is a complete work of art, brilliant game. Earthbound is responsible for some of my favorite gaming memories as a kid, and it still holds up today super well. It's incredibly quirky in a way that really works for me and has so much heart that I'll always love it.

DKC2 vs Tropical Freeze is a really tough call for me. I think both are near-perfect 2D platformers with amazing soundtracks. I probably give the slight edge to TF because I think it's a bit more challenging, but it's really close.

I’ve owned Hollow Knight forever and his post inspired me to download it last night. Played for about an hour and went through the first area and beat the boss. Much more similiar to Ori and the Blind Forest than Salt and Sanctuary. There is estus flask mechanic and having to defeat an enemy to regain currency after you die like salt and sanc. My only complaint so far would be combat vs regular enemies is kind of simple and you’re mostly just spamming attack. Hopefully as you gain more abilities and encounter new enemy types there’s some added depth. Some steam reviews people claim to have gotten hundreds of hours out of this game.

Pretty cool thing in first area:

KOTOR 2 reached an even higher level for like the first 3 hours, then it faceplants pretty bad.
You can get it as an app for your phone and it actually plays pretty well because of the turn based combat. Great for plane rides. I've been playing through it for like 3 years lol.
