Mik’s Top 25 All Time Favorite Video Games #15-11

A nice mix between Final Fantasy and Zelda for Super Nintendo. Cozy colors, nice environments and some really odd features here and there. I like that you can switch freely between the cute little characters and there’s real time combat, which provides variation and freedom of choice. It’s not a hugely original game, or not the most difficult one, but it has this special charm and atmosphere that makes me go back to it over and over again.
It’s almost absurd how many times you can go through the same story, in so many different medias (video games, books, movies, board games, music) and still enjoy it just as much every time. I can’t get tired of The Lord of the Rings, in any form. So I was really excited when a Lego version was going to be released. It’s the same concept as all the other Lego games, but with music, dialogues and camera angles directly from the movies. Combined with lots of humor and silly moments; it’s extremely charming and fun to play!
One of the best strategy games ever, it beats all the newer games released in the series. I like how you can choose between so many different “races” (forest creatures, hell creatures, necromancers, elementalists and more) and how you get to build armies of dragons, skeletons, wizards, hell hounds, devils, unicorns… You have access to every fantasy creature imaginable and they all have different abilities and spells; it’s like entering a fairytale. Add to that the entertaining treasure hunt your hero will embark on and you have the perfect adventure.
This game was a real challenge. I’m surprised I didn’t give up and throw it away, because when it comes to games, I usually don’t have a lot of patience. I give up way too easily, but Ninja Gaiden was so rewarding and so much fun. I love sneakiness, I love playing with bow and arrows, samurai swords and all the other cool ninja attributes. The atmosphere in this game is fantastic and feels very natural.
A beautiful game in every way, with a fantastic story and characters. I like the turn based battle system, the ability to summon creatures, the hidden areas and mini games. I easily got obsessed with developing my characters to the max, finding all the treasures, getting all the items you can possibly get… Or the game experience doesn’t feel complete. The soundtrack is awesome too!
