Fantastic games and where to find them…

The other day our tutor had us guess up the list of the thirty top selling video games of all times. Note: the list was calculated by the amount of units sold, not economic profits made. The list included all platforms of video games, from PC to console to apps. Games published under the same brand/title were listed as a united title, not as individual games.

Now, the idea of this exercise was not to show us what kind of games we should be trying to make, but rather to give an idea of which games have been incredibly successful throughout the short history of video games. The games that has caught an individual interest the most amount of times, in a sense. Because of this, I thought I’d show off a few of my favourites from the list. I wasn’t able to track down the list my teacher used, but you can read a similar one here.

My absolute favourite game series of all time makes me quite a mainstream 90’s kid. Pok√©mon. Yes yes. The Emerald Version for Gameboy Advance still stands as my pick from the pile, just because I felt it had a different plot and more interesting story moments.

If you’ve got time to spare, why not watch this nearly nine hour gameplay video? I won’t judge.

 

There are no words to describe the excitement from the day me and my cousins saw the first trailer for The Sims 2. It came on a separate disc with one of the expansion packs for The Sims. We were simply amazed by the graphics, and the character custimization features, and just the choices in general. Amazed, I tell you!

 

Here’s to you, dearest Bejeweled, for keeping my company during the occasional sleep-conjuring High School class.

 

In the days of the first Playstation, I had to go to my cousins’ house to play. Crash Bandicoot was our favourite. Probably still is.
