So, I've played some pretty good games in my lifetime. But honestly, I haven't played nearly enough. There are so many great games that I've never experienced.

So, in this topic, name some games that you think are really good, or games that should be necessary to play.

I'll start with a few basic ones:

  • Braid. The catalyst for the indie industry. But beyond that, it's a really good, fun game, and also serves as an example of Jonathan Blow's game development philosophy. Tutorials = bad. Teach and tell stories through gameplay.
  • Star Fox 64. If you haven't played this game, I highly recommend it. It's a quick action game that shouldn't take more than a couple hours to beat, no matter which path you take. The characters... probably haven't aged super well, but at the time they were great. Voice acting in a Nintendo game! It's just really really fun (except the vehicle levels, which seem to be hit-or-miss).
  • Tony Hawk series. Probably play one from Project 8 or before. The gameplay is really fun, some games have cool story modes, and the soundtracks are all extremely memorable.
  • Hitman series. You play as a world-class assassin. Each level is a small, living, breathing world. It's your job to change that. You can either silently eliminate your targets without anyone noticing, or you can go through the whole game guns blazing and kill everyone in sight. Many times have I put on the level Tradicions of the Trade from Hitman: Contracts and killed the entire population of the level just for fun. The new Hitman game is a great game and will probably be the most accessible since it's brand new, though Hitman 2, Contracts, and Blood Money are also great. The original, Codename: 47, has aged really poorly, and Absolution is alright but it tries too hard to be a linear action game hybrid.

What are some games you guys think everyone should check out?

I brought it up so many times already and I will keep bringing it up. Such a great game.
I honestly had more fun with it than with Super Mario 64.

Little king's story is a realtime strategy/RGP game where you conquer the WORLD!!! Mind you, it does have some weird stuff in it.

Metal Arms: A Glitch in the System

It was a great, underappreciated gem from the Gamecube era. It was released on all 3 major consoles but I had it for Gamecube. It was an action platformer similar to games like Ratchet and Clank or Jak, but had a lot of unique mechanics and ideas that separated it from those games. You play as an unearthed Robot with no memory in the middle of a rebellion and have to run, gun and jump your way through some fun times. The main hook was the fact that you could "tether" enemies and take them over. It also had some really fun vehicle segments, awesome music and funny dialogue.

Plus it had a really fun multiplayer that took full advantage of the tethering mechanic, especially one level that you could unlock that let one player tether the final boss of the game and just obliterate the other players. Had some good fun playing this game at LAN parties. A sequel was planned but cancelled and the company, Swingin' Ape Entertainment, was bought out.

It's a monstrously well-known game nowadays, but it still feels necessary to recommend Dark Souls, particularly the first of the main trilogy. One of the rare games to blend immersive world design with very competent level design. The difficulty of the game is greatly over-exaggerated (particularly by game journalists, which tend to be awful at video games) and captures the style of challenge in NES/SNES titles very well.

Phantom 2040. A SNES game that acts as a combination of Super Metroid and Mega Man X. You play as the titular Phantom in the year 2040, and from the very first level you're given a choice - go left and rescue people caught in a fire to make the next level a bit easier, or go right and take down the attackers to get a new weapon.

From there, the game's ending, where you go, and what you get depends on your choices. Add in a grappling hook that can attach to any surface, great visuals, and a kickass soundtrack, and you've got a fantastic game with plenty of room for exploration.

I never thought that someone would ever mention that! I played that game fairly quite often on my OG Xbox. It was pretty fun game to play, kinda better than the Robots movie game on OG Xbox.

Team Buddies was a sleeper-hit and is pretty good if you're looking for PS1 gems. I'd describe it as a top-down shooter with real-time strategy elements and dark humor. The basis of the game is players build units from blocks collected from around the map and placing in their base's 2x2 building pad. Combinations of blocks you place on the building pad are different (for example 2 blocks high for a generic grunt, up to 2x2x2 for a tank vehicle, or some other combinations for a weapon, etc) with the combinations being different based on the map setting. From memory, you could make things like machine guns, super heroes (they have laser vision and flying, no less!), UFOs... pretty interesting stuff.
If you happen to find it, I'd recommend getting it.

Games for the Record: FFIII/FF6 is great. The GBA version has an extra dungeon and more content in general, but it fixes exploitable things like Gau's Black Cat rage/Merit Reward/Tempest setup...
We Love Katamari (sequel to Katamari Damacy) is definitely one of my top favorites. Lots of mischievous fun rolling up frightened people and planets and stuff.

I definitely have others, but I'll have to dig them up again. (Tetris Attack is also up there as one of my top go-to games, but it's not for everyone)

I had Team Buddies as a child. What a bizarre game that was.

...I wonder if the 'bricks' method of spawning in Magikoopa Security Force was subconsciously inspired by that.

nah, the legend of zelda ocarina of time. the ultimate combination of open world and zedla on the market, making it the best n64 game in my opinion. even sm64 couldn't match it.

We have Ocarina of Time HD already.

SMRPG maybe? I'm no fanboy of that game but it would be nice to see a remade version. A SMG HD would be awesome too.

All of the Bomberman games for the N64 I was obsessed with them. They had this strange, charming, trippy vibe to them. My #indiegame is taking cues from those games.
Another Metroid 2 Remake, God was this amazing. It captured a Metroid Prime and Zero Mission style, it also felt fresh and new even if you werent considering it was a remake.
Super Mario Land 2 is the pinnacle of imaginative worlds in a Mario game. Play it. I loved the uniqueness the trippy overworked and all the cute new creatures.
