My Top 25 Favorite Video Games Of All-Time

I thought to do this a couple of days ago, and why not? I mean my list of course is going to be ever changing (especially with all the great video games coming out this year), butI haven't seen anybody else do something like this (at least not recently).So here we go, my top 25 video games of all-time (just to let everyone know there will be no Mario or Sonic games in this list).

25.Burnout: Paradise


Genre(s): Racing

I not the biggest fan of racing games, but I sure do love the Burnout series (and Need For Speed of course).The reason why this whole series appealed to me was that it focused on crashing, not just winning a race.While Burnout games for the most part have a like a mission select, closed world gameplay (if there's a proper word for this please let me know), Burnout: Paradise goes with an open-world setting, which is what makes it the best Burnout game.My favorite racing games are those that are open world, and I got to say this takes the cake for best racing game.The racing is great, the crashes are greater, and comes with the perfect theme song (Paradise City).Only bad thing I have to say about is that you don't see people in the cars, which is very irritating, but other than that this game is excellent.

You named half of the racing genre, the only two other big series are Forza, and Mario Kart (I'll even throw the DIRT series in there)

I was actually going to do this thread myself a few months ago. You beat me to it.

I look forward to it! I would imagine yours would be interesting to look at.

It's not as big as it use to be, but I wasn't referring to only the popular game series, but all racing games.

Unreal Tournament 2004 better be in here. It's probably one of the most underrated FPS's i've played.

I was having a hard time deciding structure and separating individual games and series'. You take Mass Effect, I'd rank the whole series as one, because I loved them all equally. But you take Final Fantasy and I'd have some on the list that I love, and some that I hate. Plus, between Final Fantasy and Mass Effect (if I did the games separately) there would be ten of my twenty five right there.

I may do it later but I'll let you roll with yours for a few months.
