The Top 100

I've decided to go ahead and list my top 100 favorite games. So without a lot of useless blather, here we go...

Special Top 100 subsections:

  • Top 25 Favorite Atari 2600 Games

  • My Ten Least Favorite Games

  • Top 20 Favorite Arcade Games

  • Top 20 Favorite Licensed Games

  • My Ten Favorite Arcade Compilations

  • Top Ten Overrated Games

  • 100. Tenchu: Stealth Assassins - Activision/Acquire - PSX - 1998

    That's how I like seeing my enemies - lying dead in a pool of their own blood.

    One of the few "next generation" games that I really like... there's just something about lurking unseen in the darkness, then jumping out and slicing some unsuspecting guard's throat wide open that appeals to me. ^_~

    99. The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past - Nintendo - SNES - 1992

    Now Link, fill up your hearts, so you can shoot your sword with power!

    The first and only Zelda for the SNES turned out to be one of the best. I can't tell you how many hours I spent trying to get to the end of this one.

    98. Kaze Kiri - Naxat Soft - PC Engine - 1994

    Yes! Ninja action!

    Naxat Soft's masterpiece Kaze Kiri has been called the best game on the PC Engine, and that claim is very nearly justified. It's one of the best PC Engine games ever, and one of the best "ninja action" games I've ever had the pleasure of playing.

    97. R-Type II - Irem - Arcade - 1989

    Blast the head of that thing repeatedly to see an old familiar face...

    This is one fantastic shmup. It's not quite as good as it's big brother, but it's definitely up there.

    96. The Legend Of Zelda - Nintendo - NES - 1986

    Octoroks! Peahats! Leevers! Moblins! AAAHHHHH!

    The original Zelda is still my favorite after all these years. It just has a charm and simplicity that can't be matched by anything else.

    95. ThunderForce V Perfect System - Working Designs/Technosoft - PSX - 1998

    I don't know what that thing is, but it sure is ugly.

    One of the best shooters released for the PSX, and a great follow-up to ThunderForce IV, ThunderForce V Perfect System is a game worth tracking down if you have a PSX or a PS2 and you're itching for a great shooter.

    94. Ninja Gaiden II: The Dark Sword of Chaos - Tecmo - NES - 1990

    Enter... the shadow ninjas!

    Definitely one of the best action games on the NES, even if it's not quite up to par with the first Ninja Gaiden, imo. It's a must-own.

    93. Gaiares - Renovation/Telenet - Sega Genesis - 1990

    I love that TOZ unit - steal the enemies' weapons! Whoo-hooooo!

    There seems to be a love/hate relationship with Gaiares among most gamers - they either love it or they hate it. Personally, I love it. The TOZ unit gives the game an interesting element of strategy - steal the right weapons and you'll get through the game okay - steal the wrong ones and you'll have a rough flight.

    92. Alex Kidd In Miracle World - Sega - SMS - 1986

    Sega's big eared boy in his first game ever!

    This was one of the first SMS games I ever played, and it remains one of my favorites to this day. Dammit, why won't Sega revive the Kidd? That's a question I've been asking for years.

    91. Shadowgate - Kemco/Seika/ICOM Simulations - NES - 1989


    Shadowgate is one of the only text adventures that I really like. I have the game completely memorized, but I still love going back and playing it.
