XII is my favorite Final Fantasy, followed by IV and VI.

Word.

IV and VI are definitely more fans of the series games, but they rule. Such solid mechanics and expert story-telling.

I'm on my fourth playthrough of XII right now, and this time I'm beating Yizmat and Zodiac. Fuck those guys, I'll leave my PS2 on for a month and grind for a week.

And here we arrive at the end of the list.There's a lot of great games out there, many of them unfortunately not on this list, but I have to give the top spot to Skyrim.I have it on PS3 and the Legendary edition on PC, and I love playing both.Just the shear size and detail of the world and the things you can do in it are so amazing that words can't really describe it.I played this game for three months straight non-stop when I first got it, and I'm still able to find stuff to do in it.The graphics are some of the best in any game out there IMO, and the combat is very well done.The reason why I probably like this so much is because of it's heavy Middle-Earth like feel to it (look at pictures of Whiterun and Edoras, and Riften and Lake-Town right next to each other and tell me different).On PC there's a massive list of mods to add to the game, which can give you something to do if you honestly have done everything there is to do in the core game (which I don't know anyone who has).I like this game so much that now I can hardly play an RPG without comparing it to this, and most of the time they don't live up to expectations (kinda a blessing and a curse).Well, that's it for video games, I'm thinking of doing a Top 25 movies and maybe towards the end of the year redo my Top 100 albums.Please feel free to leave some opinions on this list, but please refrain from just posting insults if that's all you got (if you truly hate this list and think it's a piece of junk, it would be better not to post).
This may surprise you but I actually have really mixed feelings about Skyrim, but almost all the problems I have with it can be fixed with mods (to bad my pc is shit so that doesnt help me). But overall it was a great game, they improved in a lot of aspects, but it could have and should have been a lot better.

And they shouldnt have made Speechcraft/ barter fuckin useless, I loved messing with the disposition bar trying to get the best percentage price on my loot in Morrowind and Oblivion

As a PS3 owner Skyrim really broke my heart.

I don't need to explain what Minecraft is, because over the past year and a half the game has exploded to an all-time high in the gaming world and practically everyone knows this game now (if you don't, go back to the rock you've been living under).The reason why I (and most likely everyone else) love this game so much is because of the pure freedom it gives you.They are no rules, no objectives, it's just you in this huge world, and you create your own adventure (what other game out there allows you to take part in the Hunger Games, visit Middle-Earth, and travel to the Moon?).Survival offers a lot for the adventurer types out there, and if you're really creative minded, go to Creative mode and build away.This game has one of the biggest fan bases in not just the gaming world, but in the whole world in general.Never has there been a game that has over dozens of YouTube channels dedicated to it and everyone one of those having over a 100,000 subscribers (correct me if I'm wrong).The number of mods, texture packs, and maps is beyond counting at this point, pretty much guaranteeing that you will never NOT have something to do.Mojang (the games developers) keep this game constantly updated, always adding new things to be excited about (and unlike most games expansions and/or add-ons don't cost money).If you've played Minecraft, your more than likely already addicted to it, if you haven't played, you need to at least give it a shot.
I just got this for my boy. He's been wanting it for months. I can see this being one he'll get tired of very quickly because he can't read and we haven't done much aside from build dirt houses with no doors and scale a snowman. And fall to our death. But it's one that I think I may play long after he's done with it. And I love the music.

Minecraft for PC is awesome.
Minecraft for 360 is okay but kids will eat it up.
Minecraft for phones/tablets sucks.
