50 Games you must play before you die ..
We’re at the final stretch, counting down to number one. It’s been an eventful couple of weeks, but we’re finally revealing the toppest dogs at the top of our list of top dogs. These are the games you simply have to play, no matter who you are or what genres you prefer. These ten games won’t disappoint…
„The Grand Theft Auto franchise has moved into a much more cinematic direction in the past couple of iterations, and whilst these have been exceptional examples of open-world gaming, Vice City is still the true measure of the franchise at heart; fun. It is the most fulfilling GTA game to date, with unforgettable characters, a fantastic soundtrack (still the best to date in my book) and set in the best era and city to date. GTA IV and GTA V were excellent games, but to make this GTA fan truly, truly happy, please take him back to Vice City (but with a new-generation lick of paint).“ -Mike
„This is one of the very finest games ever created. The setting, the graphics, the story, the sound design; it’s all expertly executed. Even with the few niggles I had towards the end (and I won’t vocalise these as it could be considered spoilerific) this is very, very near to perfection. My love of the BioShock franchise extends across all the games, numerous figures, extremely rare pieces of developer artwork, artbooks, and I even the BioShock themed Xbox 360 faceplate I rocked at the time. This level of fandom stems from the original, and still the very best, entry in this franchise. Bioshock, you have my heart, always.“
„WHY IS HALF LIFE 2 NOT NUMBER ONE, ZOMG WTF! Oh wait it is?! Well dayum and well deserved! Half-Life 2 is in my mind the high point of gaming excellence, a beautiful world going hand-in-hand with an immensely immersive story, all of which is home to gamings greatest protagonist, Gordon Freeman. Some say Gordon Freeman is the love Child of Gabe Newell and Morgan Freeman, I can’t confirm this but I believe this to be true. Timeless and Truly glorious, if you haven’t played it yet, take yourself out back and whip yourself with a garden hose or play the game.“
