My Top X Videogames as of Now.
On a retrochat IRC channel (#retrochat on synirc.net) I just listed my top 10 games of all time, then top 3 per platform. Here they are straight from my brain as I came up with them. Maybe I will come back and update the entries with pictures and thoughts later on. Or not. But what the hey? I wrote em down might as well cut and past and repost here!
Thinking of what I own, what still holds up for me NOW, and in no real order: Mechwarrior 4 Mercenaries. Ultima 1. Super Street Fighter 2. Master of Orion 2. Fallout 2. Phantasy Star 2. Atari Arcade Star Wars. Warlords 2. Ultima 5. Doom 2.
