You've never played fallout........?

Dear god man. What have you been doing for the last 5 years?
Well atleast now you have a kickass series to play thru. The originals are good too if you don't mind going a little retro.

If I were to list my console favourites they would all be N64 titles.

Jet Force Gemini
Donkey Kong 64
Perfect Dark
Banjo Tooie and Banjo Kazooie
Star Fox 64
Super Mario 64
Golden Eye 007
Conquer's Bad Fur Day
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Ah those were the golden console days. Super Nintendo also had some really good titles like Donkey Kong Country.

Picking just 5 from over the last almost 30 years I have been gaming is pretty damn hard.

King's Quest IV - First one with new Tandy system, always a special place in my heart for it
Leisure Suit Larry 3 - I still think this is the best out of the bunch (get all 5 questions right at beginning, then use binoculars)
Mass Effect - If picking just one then it has to be the first one
Civilization - I spent an insane amount of time on the first one and the second, third, fourth, and now fifth one.
Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Father - Really one of the best games ever made. Played it through countless times.


Now to be a little more general, I would have to just name series like:

King's Quest
Police Quest
Quest for Glory
Leisure Suit Larry
Conquests of Camelot and Longbow
Mass Effect trilogy
Half-Life
Civilizations 1-5
Witcher series

I'm sure there are many more but those are the stand outs for me. Of course as you may be able to tell from my list I was a huge fan of Sierra back in its hay day.
