Playing a lot of games since I can't remember when. I love side-scrolling platform games from 8-bit era and onwards. I enjoy playing horror-themed games, the preference is to psychological horror stuff. Also I enjoy racing games (rally racing deserves a special place here). I used to be a huge fan of first-person shooters, but lately I mostly prefer third-person action-adventure games. I also like to play a good RPG now and then - Japanese or Western style. But, having said all that, I can play games of any genre once in a while.
Oh, and here I list all games, not only those I actually own now.
My top 17 all-time most favorite games (in no particular order):
1. Silent Hill 2 (PC)
2. Condemned: Criminal Origins (PC)
3. Clive Barker's Undying (PC)
4. Puggsy (Genesis)
5. DOOM II (PC)
6. American McGee's Alice (PC)
7. Pathologic (PC)
8. Enclave (PC)
9. Tomb Raider (1996, PC)
10. Blaster Master (NES)
11. Duke Nukem 3D (PC)
12. SOMA (PC)
13. Bucky O'Hare (NES)
14. Road Rash 3 (Genesis)
15. Kid Niki (Arcade)
16. Ninja-Kid II (Arcade)
17. Rolling Thunder (series)
Update March 2018
So after watching some streams of a guy who plays classic games over and over and actually beats them I had this uneasy feeling that I cheat when I use many credits playing emulated Arcade games, or savestates between missions in old console games, if the game is hard, there are no passwords and continues are limited. So, it is cheating, no other word for it. Did I have savestates back in 1990-s? Hell no. Yet I managed to beat Battletoads, NInja Gaiden, and Snake Rattle'n'Roll...
So I'm now on a quest to right the wrongs as much as I can and replay fairly those games where I cheated. Maybe not all of them, but we'll see.
For Arcade games, Drumble's rules apply:
-Difficulty is set to normal
-Starting lives set to a minimum of 3 (if possible)
-Extra life score threshold set to lowest
-Initially only 1 credit is allowed
-Additional credits are cumulative and earned by making at least as much progress as my best run so far.
-Infinite credits are allowed if the home version would be expected to have them (i.e. every fighting game)
This applies generally to games where you respawn at the same place, for others, I'll see how it goes.
And remember -- winners don't use drugs!
