New Super Mario Bros. Wii

New Super Mario Bros. Wii The same-time cooperative play is great fun, and it keeps a lot of the game dynamic of the original (S)NES versions. Totally worth it.

Torchlight I'm really enjoying this at the moment, and I'm not an RPG guy really. The clicking can get a bit annoying, but it reminds me a lot of Diablo, which is a good thing :P

Half-Life 2: Episode Two
Half-Life 2: Episode One

Discworld Oh it's just so good! Eric Idle's wit and character was larger than life even in the game's 8 bit glory. Go find it. Now!

Batman: Arkham Asylum Loving the different modes of play — Very immersive despite my crummy graphics card!

Cannon Fodder
Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3

Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 My cousin had this one and I was *soooo* jealous. Definitely need to dust of my gameboy and make that purchase…

Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins

Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins A huge leap forwards from the 1st in the series, and thoroughly enjoyable too! (I want bunny ears!)

Rock Band
Viva Piñata
Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2
The Orange Box
Grand Theft Auto IV
Plants vs. Zombies

Myst Very compelling, but frustrating sometimes because of its click-navigation.

Guitar Hero III

Guitar Hero III I wish there was more diversity in the genres of music, but I'm not complaining - I do love the entire series

Halo 3

Halo 3 Don't usually do shoot-em-ups, this one kicks ass!

Yes Thu 28 Jan 2010 1:46pm reply


Osmos A beautiful, casual game, what it lacks by its repetitiveness it makes up in style twofold!

Day of the Tentacle

Day of the Tentacle I've played this from start to finish at practically every stage of my human existence. And intend to continue doing so.

Left 4 Dead
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening
Half-Life 2

Half-Life 2 I'm shit at FPSs, but I played this all the way through in a single weekend. Plot driven and powerfully captivating - they don't make them like this anymore. Oh. Wait.

One Must Fall: 2097

One Must Fall: 2097 I.freakin.loved this. Only had the demo, but I must have played it a hundred times, 'twas my first encounter with the 'level up' style games.

Super Mario Bros.
Super Mario Bros. 2

Super Mario Bros. 2 Unlike any others in the series, the music alone makes me happy

Yes Sun 24 Jan 2010 11:58pm reply

Super Mario Bros. 3
Super Mario World

Super Mario World My most replayed game - Mario defines the 8-bit genre for me, and probably for many my age. The (kinda) non-linear aspect of it keeps it as a favourite - plus you could wear a cape. A cape! Still got the cartridge…

Braid A story worth seeing through to the end; ingenious puzzles.

Zen Bound

Zen Bound Doesn't seem like there's much to it, but its oddly moreish, esp if you're a bit OCD-esque…

Maybe Wed 20 Jan 2010 7:59pm reply

Left 4 Dead 2

Left 4 Dead 2 Great gameplay and attention to detail; fun for hours with mates but gets a bit repetitive.

World of Goo

World of Goo Cute animation, interesting puzzles and original, quirky storyline - insanely addictive
