Let us know which games we got right and wrong in the usual place! Check out the list by clicking on or check out the video below for the full list!



 

Nintendo

Game: Super Mario Bros 3



You could easily put any of the first three mario games in this spot, but Super Mario Bros takes the cake. Mario has been Nintendo's golden plumber for more that 30 years. The Mario franchise has over 250 games stretching across various platforms. Mario will forever be apart of the gaming world and it goes all the way back to the first three games on the Nintendo. Of the three Super Mario Bros. 3 has to be the best of all time. 

Super Mario Bros. 3 built on the success that the first two had and turned the franchise into some specatular for gamers to play. The game introduced the overworld maps for players to explore and conquer. The game also introduced new power ups and items that players can hold onto and use at their leasure. The Tanooki suit was first introduced in this game. It allowed players to fly and explore hidden areas withing the game. 

It is safe to say that the Super Mario Bros franchise on Nintendo solidified the company and made them the gaming powerhouse they are today.  

 

Sega Genesis

Game: Sonic The Hedgehog (Series)



There was one reason and one reason only behind getting a Sega Genesis. It was so you could get your hands on Sonic The Hedgehog. Like the mario games, it is hard to not put all of them on this section. Sonic introduced a new level of gaming that Nintendo's Mario franchise couldn't deliver. In th Sonic franchise, speed is the name of the game. You would see how fast you could blow through a level without stopping. 

The way the games were set up it seemed so revoluntionary. The way the game flowed as you speedily blasted through levels was aw inspiring. . . until you lost all your rings when you screwed up, which happened often. However, when that rare moment you'd get through the level without failing was magical all on its own.  The Sonic the Hedgehog series is so great, that they've been reintroduced on mobile devices for new generations to experience. 

 

Super Nintendo

Game: Chrono Trigger



There are so many games deserving of this spot. Most of them came from Squaresoft, who reigned supream on the Super Nintendo. That being said, Chrono Trigger was their pride and joy. The game had it all, a great plot, amazing music and balanced gameplay. There aren't many gamers now days that remember the days where the game would come out balanced and wouldn't requir updates or DLC. 

When the game was released it was praised by pretty much everyone, including critics. Even with all the technological advancements that gaming systems have made, Chrono Trigger is still really fun to play. To think that the game was released over 20 years ago!

Squaresoft would later merge with Enix in 2003. Square Enix is still knocking JRPG games out of the park. 

 

Playstation

Game: Metal Gear Solid



When it comes down to it, there are two games vying for this spot. Metal Gear Solid holds the edge over Final Fantasy VII, but only by a little. Metal Gear Solid once again changed the pace that games took. It demanded a lot of patience and a LOT less button smashing. Metal Gear Solid demanded that players be stealthy when killing their foes. If you went in bullets flying you'd almost always lose. The game also had any amazing story line. 

The interaction between game and player was a magical experience that always left the player wanting more. The cutscenes played like a movie and each level was otherworldly. Konami and Kojima pushed the boundries of video games and crushed it out of the park!

 

Nintendo 64

Game: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time



The Nintendo 64 had a lot of amazing games, but one stands above them all. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was a downright brillant game. There was a lot you could accomplish in the game. Even after you were finished with it. Golden Skulltulas anyone? Yes, there were some great Zelda games that came before it and after Ocarina of Time. The best Zelda game ever is still hotly debated, but the Ocarina of Time is one of the best ones out there. 

Once you reached the forest temple, the game only got better and better. I can still hear classmates boasting that they'd finally beat the water temple. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time revitalized the franchise, which led to many more Zelda games. 
 

Playstation 2

Game: Shadow of Colossus



Shadow of Colossus is different game than what most gamers are used to, but that doesn't mean it isn't a fantastic game. In Shadow of Colossus you are in charge of taking down hulking beasts called Colossi. There are 16 different beings that you need to destroy in total.  Why would you want to do that? Because you want to bring a girl back from the dead.

The whole story is basically that. The farther you go in the story, however, the more you begin to think about what you are doing. Once you get to the end, you are rewarded with something that you woudn't expect.  The game is so good it got an HD remastered version that is now available. 

 

Xbox

Game: Halo: Combat Evolved



This was the best game hands down when it comes the best of the best on Xbox. If you are a gamer, then most likely you played this game and had a few lan parties along the way. Bungie did a marvelous job at bringing life to the Master Chief. As Master Chief, you go on epic an space adventure filled with a ring space station and covenant who want to kill every last human left in the universe. The humans are losing the big war, but Master Chief has something to say about it.

The Halo games were pretty awesome until 343 Industries took over the franchise and ran it into the ground. Bungie has since went on to create Destiny, another smash hit. Bungie now screws over its Xbox following by giving Destiny exclusives to Playstation gamers. 

 

Nintendo Gamecube

Game: Metroid Prime



There was a lot of hesitation when Metroid Prime was announced, but the Samus's first 3D adventure went above and beyond what any gamer would have hoped for. Retro Studios created a masterpiece puzzler for gamers to explore. Not to mention that the graphics were pretty stellar for its time with rain splatters, steam effects and much much more left gamers with a sense of reality. The over all feeling of claustrophobia and a grisly planet left gamers wanting more. 

It is a big part of why there is a new Metroid game on its way for the Nintendo Switch. A game that could possibly dethrone the current reigning best Nintendo Switch game. 

 

Xbox 360


Game: Gears of War



Whoever thought chainsaws on the end of a gun would be a nice touch is a genius! That is exactly what happened in Gear of War.  While there was a total of four games on the Xbox 360, the first Gears of War is still the best and continues to be one of the best exclusives on Xbox; something that Xbox really needs. While the sequels brought on Horde Mode and four-player-co-op, there is something about the original that was so refreshing. 

In both the multiplayer and single player campaign there are a lot of tense fighting situations in close quarters and if you can use the shotgun at the right times. . . you will be standing on a heaping body count as the victor. A lot of people still don't know that the multiplayer was a last second addition and boy are we glad it happened!

 

Playstation 3

Game: The Last of US



Yes, there is a lot of tense action withing The Last of Us, but that isn't what sets the game above the rest. Its the story line that makes the game better than the rest. The game is centered around a man traveling with a gril across the countryin a post apocalyptic world. Yes, the story sounds simple, but it is was more than that. The way the characters interact, grow and change (or no change) is what makes for an intriguing storyline. 

There are other elements to the game too. There is a zombie element that throws an extra wrench into the works of the game. Coming face to face with a clicker is something that all gamers feared when they played. The game dives deep into moral and ethical decisions before nailing  you with one hell of a gut wrenching ending. It since has been released on PS4, but it is still the best that the Playstation 3 has to offer. 
 

Nintendo Wii

Game: Super Smash Bros: Brawl



There have been a few instalments of the game, but Super Smash Bros: Brawl is the cream of the crop. The first Super Smash Game on the Nintendo 64 had a lot of people scratching their heads, but that was remedied once they got their hands on the game. A lot of people questioned why Nintendo would throw its lovable cast of characters in the ring, but it worked. The game boasts some amazing fighting mechanics that get even better with each instalment. 

The cast in Super Smash Bros: Brawl has expanded tremendously, with notable characters such as Sonic the Hedgehog and even the Wii Fit Trainer. Mario and Sonic battled for a long time for sales, but now they go head to head in Super Smash Bros. 

 

Xbox One

Game: Titanfall



There really haven't been a lot of Xbox One exclusives to oogle at, but Respawn Entertainment's first instalment of Titanfall is far ahead of any other game. Sure we could reached and said Halo 5 or Gears of War 4, but those games just didn't hit their intended mark. Respawn was responsible for making Call of Duty a yearly commitment. Respawn knew exactly what they were doing when it came to making Titanfall. They realized that Call of Duty's single player sucked. . . so they tossed it into the wind and went full boar on a multiplayer aspect. Other games have tried to emulate the Titanfall model, but have received a lot of fan lashback. Titanfall has the "It" factor. 

They compeletly crushed the game. It was the first, first person shooter game to introduce wall-running, some crazy awesome exoskeletons and mechs. Titanfall 2 is equally as amazing, but we believe that it fell victim to poor marketing. If you haven't picked them up, do so immediatly. 
 

Playstation 4

Game: Horizon: Zero Dawn



Zero Dawn is an absolute delight. Playing as huntress Aloy, you’re tasked with uncovering the secrets of a post-apocalyptic world with robotic animals. How you approach these hulking mechanical beasts is up to you. 

Guerrilla Games recovered well from the relative disappointment of Shadow Fall to deliver an enthralling experience that must go down as one of the PS4’s best. The graphics are stunning and sometimes you catch yourself just looking at the scenery.
 

PC

Game: Counter Strike 



While the graphics may not be the best, Counter Strike is still the king when it comes to PC games. The game has been around a long long time, but that hasn't stopped the Counter Strike community. The eSport is one of the biggest and it comes with some pretty amazing prize pools for those who are skilled enough to come out on top. 

The game itself is very simple, there are two teams of 5 consisting of terrorists and counter-terrorists. One team tries to set of a bomb while the other tries to difuse the bomb. First to accomplish their goal wins. Even though its simple there is plenty of action to oogle at if you are a bistander or jump in and taste blood for yourself! 

 

Nintendo Switch

Game: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild



While the console is still in its infancy, its hard not to mention The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild. The open air adventure has plenty for fans of the franchise to do in the boundary breaking game. 

Forget everything you know about The Legend of Zelda games. You can travel across bountiful fields, through thick forests and climb to the top of mountain peaks as you discover what has become of the ruined kingdom of Hyrule in this open-air adventure
