Video GamES!

Twit This! | |

Video games can be the bane of people's existence. They can take over your lives and make you a brainless fool who can merely chuckle and talk to your other friends about the same games you are playing. OR they can be a creative and most of the time amazing distraction from the real world (as long as you practice sensibility and restraint this can be a very good thing). Gamepro has compiled a list of 35 of the best video games (so says Gamepro) and is definitely worth having a look at. The link can be found here.

One of the best things about the list is how anyone over the age of 20 has probably played every one of them. Some highlights from the list; for the folks to lazy to read themselves.

#28 Grim Fandango: One of the greatest adventure games of all time. Still lots of stuff to haul around but manageable and old Lucas Arts hilarity.

#20 Fallout 2: Possibly one of the best turn based post apocalyptic RPG. No doubt anyone who is a fan of games is a fan of the Fallout series and is wetting themselves for the upcoming third game.

#13 Half Life 2: Nuff said

#12 Sins of a Solar Empire: Amazing strategy game on a truly solar system stage. Fun and some very well thought out multyplayer.

#10: Company of Heroes: First World War 2 strategy game to really capture my imagination.

#7: Starcraft: Nothing needs to be said about the brilliance of this game. Another one of those "I can't wait for the sequel to arrive titles."
