My Top 100: #1 – Super Mario Bros.

  Could it be anything else? My previous experiences with games were fleeting, whether they were in the cart corral at Co-Op (with Centipede and Millipede) or in Baie-Sainte-Anne with our friends’ Vectrex.  These were one-screen affairs that… Read More

My Top 100: #2 – The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

  Whenever Nintendo Power compiled “best of” lists in its last few years of existence, Ocarina of Time always seemed to end up somewhere at the top of the heap.  Nintendo had a lot to be proud of, and… Read More

My Top 100: #3 – Super Mario Bros. 3

  After compiling a list of a hundred games I thought deserved to be on my countdown, I determined the order from #100 to #10 rather easily.  “I like Title A more than Title B, but less than Title C.”  That’s… Read More

My Top 100: #4 – Mega Man 3

  I’m not sure whose idea it was for to get me a subscription to Nintendo Power, but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t mine. Sure, I liked buying issues of this and that from time to time, but I… Read More

My Top 100: #5 – Half-Life

  In Grades 10 and 11, I was so obsessed with all things Star Wars that everthing else that happened in those years seems like a blur.  I don’t remember the NASCAR races all that well, which, if… Read More

My Top 100: #6 – Grand Theft Auto III

  Here’s another series that really made the transition into 3D nicely. I remember playing the first Grand Theft Auto game on a PC in Technology class.  Not only did you learn a bit about computers, but it also had various modules that explored… Read More

My Top 100: #7 – Super Mario 64

  Imagine looking at a rubix cube head-on. You know there’s a possibility of there being more sides to it.  You’re pretty satisfied with looking at the green square, but the green one is nevertheless the only one you’ve ever seen.  You have an… Read More

My Top 100: #8 – The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

  I believe that Zelda games were meant to be played from a top-down perspective. Sure, the age of 3D gaming has been pretty kind to the series, and all of them have been incredible in one way or another. … Read More

My Top 100: #9 – Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

  What’s this?  An RPG in the top ten??  I know it’s not turn-based, but it’s pretty darn close.  It definitely isn’t the sort of game I would have checked out, had the Star Wars name not been at the front of… Read More

My Top 100: #10 – Metal Gear Solid

  Wow, 90 posts already?  Where did the time go? I was somewhat split on which game to actually feature on the countdown.  The original version of Metal Gear Solid blew my mind in so many ways, and it became one… Read More
