edit: And I'm sorry but I disagree with your viewpoint WRT new games vrs old. I'd much rather have 500+ hours of gameplay in 8 colours than 20 hours will all the eyecandy that today's hardware will allow.... ;)
I agree sswilson.
I still play the old games that I love and the lack of new graphics just means I get to play at 10,000 FPS.

5: Oblivion = I liked that game... but the gathering... My OCD with doing everything in games will ruin some great games for me (Skyrim is the same) if they go overboard with the crafting.

Heh... see that's exactly why I gravitate towards that style of open ended game... some days you want to focus on storyline specific quests, other days you just feel like picking a few mats for crafting unique potions and bashing in the heads of anybody (or thing) that decides to get in the way of that.... ;)

There's also nothing like climbing (or crawling depending on how steep it is) to the absolute very tip of a non-descript mountain just to see the view. :)

This is the most evilest topic I've ever heard. Do you have any idea how hard it is to pick just 5 games!?
  1. Final Fantasy 7
  2. Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne
  3. Battlefield 2142
  4. Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask
  5. Skies of Arcadia: Legends

Honestly I don't even think they're my top 5 but if they were the only 5 games I would play for the rest of my life then it's good :P
