What are your top 10 most beloved video games?

Recommended Posts

I'm curious what the tastes are among the users of Doomworld. I actually only recently realized Doom 2 would currently be in my top 10. I've been playing Doom levels at random and everything that comes up is just golden.

Top of all time: Doom 2


#2: Super Mario World

#3: Street Fighter II

#4: GTA IV

#5: Ultimate Doom

#6: Super Mario Bros.

#7: Tetris

#8: Rush 2 USA

#9: Wolfenstein 3D

#10: There's honestly so much stuff I want to name here that I can't pick just one...


Even this list feels wanky because it changes depending on the day. As a rule of thumb, my favorite series are Doom, Mario, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Rush, GTA, even stuff that I used to love but don't play at all these days like Super Smash Bros, Oblivion, old NES stuff like Marble Madness, Castlevania, etc deserves a mention. Anyway I'll cut it off here, it's a decent representation of my tastes either way.

Wow, picking 10 beloved video games can be difficult, but here we go....


First of all, my most beloved game of ALL TIME goes to... *drumroll*.... Unreal [Gold Edition]! Seriously, if I could only choose 1 video game to play for the rest of my life, it would be this one. I love it to be pieces! The music, atmosphere, graphics, monster A.I, weapons.... it's just.... it still awes me to this day. A favorite since childhood to now!


As for the other 9, in no particular order....


Star Wars - Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II + Mysteries of the Sith

Tekken 5

Rollercoaster Tycoon

DOOM 1&2 + Final Doom

Doppelganger: Dawn of the Inverted Soul

Streets of Rage


LEGO Star Wars

Diablo + Hellfire


Honestly I could probably list even more wahahaha, but those are the ones that come to mind when I think of most beloved game. But honorable mentions; Golden Axe 1&2, Re:Alistair++, Coffee Rush, Battlefield 1942, Lunar Legend, FATE series, Icewind Dale, Bejeweled 3. 


Wow, I have a very eclectic taste lol.

These games will most likely not be in any specific order compared to their immediate neighbours, but the overall gradient should be indicative of my preference.


1. Deus Ex

2. Baldur's Gate

3. Planescape: Torment

4. The Talos Principle

5. Metroid Prime

6. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

7. Donkey Kong Country

8. Resident Evil 4

9. Hitman: Blood Money

10. Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes


I had to cut down from a list of 20+ games to fit it into a Top 10, so I had to make some tough calls.


I'm not sure how I should feel about Planescape: Torment considering all the stuff that we learned about Chris Avellone. The game is amazing, but the guy in many ways isn't. I still included it because of the utterly entrancing atmosphere and the most unique and interesting characters in any video game.


It might be odd that I've omitted all the Doom games from this list, but ultimately my enjoyment of Doom and Doom 2 comes from the moddability and creative output of the community. The game itself does not have the same emotional impact as the rest of the set, and while I could probably safely place it in my Top 20, I can't with good conscience put it in my Top 10.

Well, that's a thinker. And I'm sure I'm going to miss something, or put something on here that should have a lower place. But top of my head:


1: Doom/Doom 2 (I really think of them as the same game, and I'm not using up two places for them)

2: Quake

3: Postal 2

4: Super Mario Bros 2

5: Soldier of Fortune 2

6: Starcraft

7: Final Fantasy 6

8: Saints Row 2

9: Blood

10: Dusk


Yeah, I'm a 90's kid.

#4: GTA IV

I'm actually surprised to see GTA IV. You've always seemed like such a family friendly guy to me Doomkid... oh, how far have the mighty fallen. jk


As for me, I wouldnt be sure about ranking them, but here it is. I would do it on the saga side tho, I cant choose a particular one from any saga that I dearly love, feels like betrayal.


1. Doom, of course.

2. WoW

3. Diablo

4. Dead Space

5. Unreal

6. Starcraft

7. Silent Hill

8. The Elder Scrolls

9. Command & Conquer

10. Metro


There's actually many more that I dearly love, but those are the ones that truly changed me for good.

Down to 10? Horrible task! In an indicative, but not absolutely specific order:


Planescape Torment

Thief - The Dark Project

Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines

Doom 2

Deus Ex

Dishonored 2 - tough one as inferior story and characters to the first + xpacks, but better game overall

Stalker Shadow of Chernobyl

Silent Hill 2

Monument Valley - slightly dubious as not even slightly replayable, but such a great experience the first time round

Quake 3 Arena


Looking at that list, what I get is PLEASE BRING TTLG BACK FROM THE DEAD.

And I completely forgot the old Fallout games (1 and 2). Those are some serious gold, I might have to amend my list at some point.

ok, no order but the order I remember them..

- classic Doom (Imma do like Bio over there and include doom 1,doom 2, community levels, ets)

- Quake 3 Arena

- Tekken 3 (I played so many hours of it!)

- Torchlight 2 (or Diablo 2, but I think I played more TL than Diablo and the small QOL improvements make it a better favorite)

- Arcade Volleyball (what? I really like it! not many 2 player games I like as much as it)

- Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2 (the only real contender to AV in the "games I play with people" category)

- Nethack (and derivatives, although I haven't played much of it in ages I used to and can still waste a few hours on it when ever I start a game)


And I can't remember many more... There's also the Zeldas (LTTP, and Ocarina mostly) which I really like but they are games you play once a couple of years and not something I can play whenever, Hearthstone that I play on the cellphone but mostly because there isn't a good classic Magic TG game for it (that I know of),  Flashback that suffers from the same problem as the Zeldas (and Blackthrone and the original Prince of Persia, the three side-scrolling platformers I like).. 


Mostly when people ask me what games I like to play I reply that I only play classic doom and quake 3 and it's not much of a lie :D

Top 10 is a short list, but at the same time, big task, as i have to quietly think of them:


1. Contra: The Hard Corps

2.  Good old Doom

3. Streets of Rage Remake

4. Guacameele! Super Turbo Championship Edition / Tomba!

5. Demon King Chrinocles / The Way / LISA serie (RPG Maker Games)

6. Steel Empire / M.U.S.H.A Aleste / Thunder Force IV

7. Amnesia: The Dark Descent (mods) / Silent Hill serie

8. Chrono Cross / Final Fantasy VI / Suikoden II

9. Harvester

10. Prince of Persia serie / Sonic serie (genesis mostly)


But this could change at any moment as i just named the ones y played the most.

An absolute gem, dark humour doesn't get better than this. I've finished this twice and will certainly have a third run if I live to it.  


I didn't expect you guys would actually reply in this topic, thanks. So I guess I'll put my current ranking here too. I may have new, greater favourites later, which is normal. Maybe Prodeus turns out superior. I'll find out quite soon.

  1. Life Is Strange (2015)
  2. Doom 2: Hell On Earth (1994)
  3. Mortal Kombat 11 (2019)
  4. Into The Breach (2018)
  5. Life Is Strange: Before The Storm (2017)
  6. Dropsy (2015)    
  7. Oxenfree (2016)
  8. Doom Eternal (2020)
  9. The Sims 4 (2014)
  10. The Black Watchmen (2015)

By the way it reminded me to keep filling my page for appreciated games https://rateyourmusic.com/list/rewindr/_treasures-video-games/

I'm going to cheat and go by series. 


In no order:

Elder scrolls (Morrowind is my favourite) 

Resident Evil (REmake & 4 stand out to me) 

Baldurs Gate (not sure about 3 at the moment) 

Legend of Zelda (although I need to play BotW) 

Two Worlds (so much jank, but I love it) 

Doom (it's all good) 

Dark Souls

Castlevania (I have a ritual of playing SotN at least once a year) 

Silent Hill (1-3 more than the later titles) 

Street fighter (Again I prefer the older titles, I guess I'm more used to the older fighting system) 


**bonus pick: would of been Simcity but I prefer Cities Skylines.

4) Ion Fury

5) Mass Effect Trilogy (particularly ME3)

6) Command & Conquer Tiberian Sun

7) Unreal Tournament (UT99)

"Beloved" is an interesting classifier.

  1. Final Fantasy IV (discovered it as II, of course)
  2. Final Fantasy VII
  3. Doom (let's just include Ultimate, 2, and Final)
  4. Super Metroid
  5. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
  6. Mega Man X2
  7. Civilization II
  8. Super Smash Bros. Melee
  9. Final Fantasy Tactics
  10. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project


Top 6 are pretty much no brainers. The rest could probably alternate in and out with another 5-10 games. I basically quit gaming cold turkey in about 2005 and have since only come back to oldies in various levels of obsession.
