The Ultimate List Of Doom!!! 2008

Ultros "Don't tease the octopus, kids!"
 
Final Fantasy.VII (PC)
Final Fantasy.VII (PC)
"Cliché I know but in my opinion this is still the best game I’ve ever played. I go through it every couple of years and still find it just as good."
Final Fantasy VI Advance (GBA)
Final Fantasy VI Advance (GBA)
"This really pushed the SNES to its limit back in the day. The GBA version is a really good port as well, runs flawlessly and extra dungeons included. Absolute gem."
Shining Force II: Koe no Fuuin [Japan Import]
Shining Force II: Koe no Fuuin [Japan Import]
"The Shining series helped invent the “tactics RPG” genre. An original cast with an excellent script. European copy is getting quite rare now."
Tales of Phantasia (GBA)
Tales of Phantasia (GBA)
"This game was the first of the “Tales of” series (released in 1995!) and my personal favourite. The GBA isn’t the best port but does include some nice extra features."
Chrono Trigger (Nintendo DS)
Chrono Trigger (Nintendo DS)
"Never saw a European release until the DS. This version has some much appreciated options for the original fans of the series. Epic story telling with an all star development team."
Panzer Dragoon zwei (2) Sega Saturn
Panzer Dragoon zwei (2) Sega Saturn
"Panzer Dragoon Saga (unfortunately the picture is unavailable). The game I'm referring to is insanely rare, well worth looking up if you’ve never heard of it. I found it similar to “Skies of Arcadia”."
Zelda : The Ocarina Of Time (N64)
Zelda : The Ocarina Of Time (N64)
"I've always been very fond of the Zelda series but this one blew me away seeing it transform from 2D to 3D that Christmas morning will stay with me for life."
Skies of Arcadia (Dreamcast)
Skies of Arcadia (Dreamcast)
"The Dreamcast was the best thing Sega ever created with some of the most innovative games the industry has ever seen. This is one of the many reasons why."
Dragon Quest: The Journey of the Cursed King (PS2)
Dragon Quest: The Journey of the Cursed King (PS2)
"The first Dragonquest release in Europe and what a game! Simple game mechanics but so addictive published by Square created by Yuji Horii. Can’t give enough credit to the developers in this tiny space"
Lost Odyssey
Lost Odyssey
"This got a lot of negative press from people complaining about the random battles and older style of gameplay but for me this was one of the best features! Very different from Mistwalker’s other games"
Phantasy Star Collection
Phantasy Star Collection
"The Phantasy Star Series is a classic! The music is the deal breaker for me, would love to see them have a rest from the online versions and make another game like these."
Shenmue (Dreamcast)
Shenmue (Dreamcast)
"I’ve been waiting nearly 9 years and counting for Shenmue III, if you’re new to the series don’t torment yourself playing this. The game is brilliant, leaving fans on a 9 year cliff-hanger isn’t : ("
Fire Emblem (GameCube)
Fire Emblem (GameCube)
"I imagine many people after buying Smash Bros Brawl are curious to see where Ike came from; Fire Emblem is another Tactics style series which can be very difficult but equally very rewarding."
Grandia
Grandia
"Love the characters and art style in this, the Grandia series is fairly overlooked and hasn’t ages too well in the graphics department. If you can look past this then you’ll find a real bobby dazzler!"
Star Ocean: Till The End of Time (PS2)
Star Ocean: Till The End of Time (PS2)
"This was the first Star Ocean game I played and found it a slow burner at first, give it a long enough try and you’ll get twice as much back from these games, “Second Evolution” is particularly good."
Seiken Densetsu 2 - Super Famicom - JAP
Seiken Densetsu 2 - Super Famicom - JAP
"Seiken Densetsu 3 (Not pictured due to being unavailable) was the third of the “Mana” games; it improved on its predecessor “Secret of Mana” considerably offering an array of characters and choices."
Illusion Of Time (SNES)
Illusion Of Time (SNES)
"Terranigma had an interesting concept, instead of saving the world you had to rebuild it; this was a breath of fresh air at the time."
The Story of Thor: A Successor of The Light (Mega Drive)
The Story of Thor: A Successor of The Light (Mega Drive)
"This game is like Zelda but with more platform elements to it and stats like HP, weapon damage ect. Never seen anything like it since, front cover does it no justice."
Metal Gear Solid (PS1)
Metal Gear Solid (PS1)
"Yet to play Metal Gear Solid 4 but pretty certain it can't touch this. Notice how there's no Mario or Football games in this list? It's because their over-rated : p"
SoulCalibur (Dreamcast)
SoulCalibur (Dreamcast)
"Lot’s of amazing beat em ups about like Super Street Fighter II, Blazblue and Marvel Vs Capcom but I felt Soul Calibur was the most balanced. Easy to play, a lifetime to master."
Atari Anthology (PS2)
Atari Anthology (PS2)
"Not this game but the console, I first started gaming on a ZX Spectrum followed by an Atari ST, can't believe how much things have changed!"
Sierra Best Sellers: Half-Life (DVD Packaging)
Sierra Best Sellers: Half-Life (DVD Packaging)
"Half Life completely reinvented the FPS genre; we were all content with doom and quake before this. Without this game online wouldn’t be the same."
BioShock - Collector's Edition (PC DVD)
BioShock - Collector's Edition (PC DVD)
"Bioshock is a first person shooter with light RPG elements which takes the player on a roller coaster of a story. It’s excellent to see a game like this which thinks outside the box."
Banjo Kazooie / Game
Banjo Kazooie / Game
"Back in the days of the N64 Rare was my favourite developer, Banjo Kazooie is a brilliant platform game it’s just a shame this kind of quality isn’t present in their later work."
F-Zero X
F-Zero X
"Fastest racing series ever made with a brilliant soundtrack, this is the standard other arcade racers should measure themselves against."
