Top Five Best Video Games of all Time

Updated on June 12, 2011

Best Games of all time

Even though there are many games on the market today, it can be difficult to find a fun game that is worth spending your time playing. I have put together a list of my top five games that I think are worth the time and money. It can be very annoying to go to the store and spend 50 bucks on a game that you decide you do not like and play for an hour and then are sick of it. So make sure you do your research. Watch the game trailers or reviews and make an informed decision so that your time and money are not wasted.

# 1 The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

This is my # 1 choice for Nintendo Wii Games. It is fun, has an awesome plot, and every one in the family can enjoy this classic video game. I am waiting patiently for the next game of Zelda to come out on the Wii.

Description: Link, a young man raised as a wrangler in a small, rural village, is ordered by the mayor to attend the Hyrule Summit. He sets off, oblivious to the dark fate that has descended upon the kingdom. When he enters the Twilight Realm that has covered Hyrule, he transforms into a wolf and is captured. Link must explore the vast land of Hyrule and uncover the mystery behind its plunge into darkness.

# 2 Dragon age: Origins Playstation 3

I just bought this game a few weeks ago and it has quickly jumped to my second spot. This game is really fun but a little violent for my usual taste. I was able to create a character who looked a lot like me which was pretty cool. The game changes with the choices you make. If you have not tried this game, I would definately recommend this game to anyone over the age of 17.

Description: In Dragon Age, your choices change the world and affect the people around you. Certain situations, story lines, and conversation options will change drastically depending on your origin and your motivations. You play through your character's early days, defining his or her background and motivation and begin to learn more about the world of Ferelden from your own distinct perspective. Your choice of origin defines how you will view the world and how it views you. Choose a sneaky, disrespected commoner and you will play a story that focuses around subtle skills and careful wordplay. Choose a noble origin and the world will be much more positive and helpful, but those jealous of your status will not be afraid to take what you have, violently if necessary.

# 3 The Legend of Zelda Wind Waker (Game Cube)

I really enjoyed my time while playing this game. There was lots of game play time and it never seemed to get boring.You are able to travel around the world on a boat from island to island. I would have to say this is one of the best games I have ever played and it is a great game for all ages.

Description: Zelda Wind Waker looks completely different from any previous title in the franchise. Nintendo has opted to use cel-shading technology on Wind Waker; the result is that the game looks like a cartoon. Die-hard Zelda purists initially howled at this change, arguing that the game skews too young. I think it's fantastic. The cartoon animation style allows for better expression of the characters, and several of the animations--like Link trying to pick up an object that's too heavy--are so cute that you can't help but laugh a little.

# 4 Dragon Quest 8 (Playstation 2)

This game was given to me as a gift a few years ago. I found it to be very enjoyable with an open world and many things to do. This has captured a spot as my fourth favorite game of all time. One of the things that I thought was cool about this game was you could find monsters along your travels that you could catch and find battle arenas to battle your captured monsters with other peoples to gain prizes. I think this would be a great game for anyones game collection.

Description: You're the last survivor of King Torode's army, and the king and his daughter have both been transformed. As his final warrior, you must track down the evil jester who stole his powerful scepter and caused this tragedy. The full-orchestral soundtrack, completely renovated GUI menu system, new battle abilities, and improved animations will take your breath away, while the living, breathing anime world offers a wealth of new places to explore. An epic tale of friendship, bravery, and adventure awaits you on the grassy fields, snow-capped mountains, and restless seas of Dragon Quest VIII.

# 5 Dark Cloud (Playstation 2)

This game was my all time favorite game, when the Playstation 2 was newly released. Do not be fooled by the name it is not bloody or gory by any means. Many people I have recommended this game to have passed on it by the name alone thinking it was a Dark game. I have beat this game many times, every couple of years I get into a Dark Cloud mood and play it all over again. I think that this game would be an enjoyable experience for anyone.

Description: Dark Cloud is a title that challenges players to not only strategise, battle and solve puzzles, but also to create geographical landscapes using the new Georama system. Gamers assume the role of a young boy named Toran on an unforgettable journey of rebirth, revival and hope. Unfortunately an evil demon spirit has been released and has left destruction in its wake and Toran must harness the spirit of those destroyed to rebuild the lands in time for an epic confrontation. True to life graphics should mesmerize gamers as they create villages complete with houses, hills, churches, volcanoes, and streams.

      Dark Cloud is pretty bomb. I've conquered it many a time, but never did finish that extra world at the very end after defeating the last guy. Always wanted to do that but people kept saving over my game. You know how it is.
