All time favorites video games



I'm writing this on my Christmas gift to myself, a Surface 3. I am captivated by this device. Throughout the years I have owned tablets (android and iOS), and never regarded them as much more than pretty toys. Especially the iPad. While a decent tool for web browsing and some semblance of creative work (certain amp sims, drawing tools, etc), the crippled mobile os's never made them usable like a real computer (don't get me started on trying to transfer files or play random non-Apple sanctioned video file types on them). In terms of real music recording production, video editing, programming/development, they are pretty much worthless. Anywhoo, this Surface is everything I dreamed a tablet could be, and more. It runs the actual Windows 10 OS, so all manner of real programs are usable. And, as an added bonus, it is surprisingly capable at gaming. I run emulators, app store casual games and real, honest to goodness Steam offered triple A titles from a few years ago. Mass Effect 2, Crysis, Far Cry 2, Oblivion, etc all run perfectly on this little wonder device. So in lieu of my re-kindled interest in gaming, I got to thinking about finishing my long in the works favorite games of all time list. This isn't necessarily a list of what I think are the best games ever made. It's an amalgam of the best, the most nostalgic, and my most beloved.
