JohnTheDrummer's Top 30 (In No Order) Vidja Gamez!
 
Figured I'd hop on the bandwagon :)

Up until a few years ago I ALWAYS played video games. They were my life, besides music. Growing up, though, my family never had much money (compared to my friends) so I never got to play too many of the big hot titles, and mainly played the $10 Bargain Bin games, the Greatest Hits titles, and hand me downs.

That being said, some of these titles may not be what many would consider a classic or memorable game, but these are the ones I grew up playing a lot and enjoying!

This was originally just going to be a top 15, but the list kept growing and growing to 30... and I had to cut it off :lol:

1. Rock N' Roll Racing

Before Twisted Metal, before Grand Theft Auto, before Burnout, there was Rock N Roll Racing on the SNES. This game was THEE racing game of my childhood, and it was full of destruction and carnage. Awesome levels, awesome characters, addicting gameplay, fun upgrade system, AMAZING SOUDTRACK! In what other game can you blow up an alien driving a tank while listening to "Paranoid" or "Highway Star"? This game is soooo underrated when it comes to discussions about racing games, and I would recommend anyone who still owns an SNES to pick this up and rock it (pun intended).

2. Theme Park Roller Coaster

Probably one of the more obscure games on this list, Theme Park Roller Coaster for the PS2. This game was basically a watered down console version of Roller Coaster Tycoon, but still addicting as hell. You move from Theme Park to Theme Park trying to earn money and make the best park that you can. Its quite simple, but so fun and addicting at the same time, and still has a little bit of a challenge to it when trying to nail some of the goals.

Two awesome choices so far! Rock n Roll racing is making it's way around on PC these days I think!

I'd be hard-pressed to keep Rock n' Roll Racing off my own list. I spent a lot of time with my buddies smoking weed and playing that game back in the 90's... the awesome soundtrack certainly helped, but it was also a really solid, extremely fun racing game.

3. Frequency

[IMG]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/8/80/Frequency_Coverart.png[/IMG]

Before Harmonix took over the world with their Rock Band franchise, they had a little game out on the PS2 known as Frequency. This was, and still is, one of my most favorite music games out there. It was so open with customization (being able to remix all of the songs and make them your own), the difficulty was perfect (until the final stages, ugh, so hard!), and the song list was so amazing. This game had everything from Metal by Fear Factory to Powerman 5000 to more electronic music like The Crystal Method and Orbital, even No Doubt made an appearance, along with many other DJ's, artists, and bands! I believe this was the game that got Freezepop out into the world :rocker:.

I know many people think Amplitude (the sequel) was better, but the hours and late nights I spent on this game were so fun! Really wish there was a way to share your remixes!

Ah, it was Brainpower and it was in the first Rockband. Regardless that song was so cool.
