10 thoughts on “Top 10 Games Every Gamer Needs to Try At Least Once

  1. What a real douche baggy concept for a list! So I’m suppose to play a game simply because others have played it? Go fuck yourselves! I play games I want to play not because others say I should play them.

  2. #10: I don’t know about Inside. It looks great, but I had a BAD experience with Limbo.
    #9: Never heard of Half-Life much.
    #8: I don’t know about Elder Scrolls either. Never really heard of Skyrim much and if I have, haven’t been interested.
    #7: Have played Last of Us and I liked it. My sister hated the ending. If it ever comes to Xbox, I will definitely buy it and replay it all over again.
    #6: Doom was okay, but not really interesting as I never played the old games. The multiplayer was ok.
    #5: The only Zelda I will ever try out and only try out is Hyrule Warriors.
    #4: Minecraft is just not for me. I don’t like to create stuff. I like to organize.
    #3: I have tried out Super Mario Bros series when I was young on my uncle’s Super NES (Born in 1999), but the only one I remember playing is Super Mario Bros 3 and World.
    #2: Never heard of Shadow of the Colossus nor Ico.
    #1: I hate puzzle games.

  3. Dishonored, metal gear solid, cod, fallout, battlefield, garrys mod??? You can’t make this list out of 10 games maybe like top 20 games. There are just too many remarkable games out there.

  4. Ocarina of Time is by far the best Zelda ever next to ALTTP. Shadow of the Colossus is amazing! My nephew beat the game at age 6, holy shit was I surprised he had very, I mean very little help from me.
