My Top 100 Favorite Video Games

So at the beginning of this year, I started an ambitious project to list my top 100 video games of all-time. I intended to write a blurb about every game on the list and count down from 100 to 1, but unfortunately I fizzled out and only got through 100-61. You can find links to all those posts below in the list.

I didn’t want to have the year end without posting the whole list though, so under the cut is going to be a simple list of all 100 games. These are my favorites, not necessarily the “best” games I’ve ever played but the ones that have a special place in my heart or are just too fun not to share.

I may eventually get to writing up the rest, and if so I’ll update this post with links to each write-up. Unfortunately with November coming up and me probably attempting NaNoWriMo again, it’s unlikely I’ll have the time for the in-depth write-ups I’d like to do for these games, especially once we get into the top 20 or so. Anyway, without further ado, here are my 100 favorite games of all-time, starting with #100:

For anybody that knows me and my taste/history with games, the top 5 shouldn’t be any surprise and the top 10 is slightly less obvious but still pretty easy to guess. Hopefully I will get to write-ups of everything eventually, but for now that’s my comprehensive list of best games ever.

This list was created at the beginning of 2018, using only games I had played through the end of 2017. Games from this year were not included in this, although there are a few I’ve played so far that could theoretically have earned a spot (God of War, Spider-Man, Octopath Traveler, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Hollow Knight, and Dead Cells all stand out as possible.) We’ll see if I update the list in the future.
