My Top 50 Video Games: #20 – #11
20. Micro Machines
Sorry Mario Kart fans, this is the best racing game. It was based off of some of the best toys of the 90s, the micro machines. This was so cooL! There were races on the kitchen table, in the garage, boat races in the bathtub! Oh and don’t forget racecars around a pool table.
19. Bubble Bobble
Trap your enemies in a bubble, then pop ’em! So many levels… This is a great game for two.
18. Donkey Kong Jr.
This is actually my favourite DK game. I love the rope climbing exercise and figuring out the best way to get to the cage. Addictive, colourful fun.
17. Metal Gear Solid 2
The Metal Gear Solid series is one based on stealth and espionage. What a great idea. It is also heavy on story, and this particular story is quite cool. I love the labyrinthine levels on the ship and oil tanker. Lots of fun.
16. Dr. Mario
It may seem like a Tetris rip-off, and I suppose it is. But its got a cool catch to i of killing the 4 kinds of bugs. Greta stuff, again highly addictive.
15. Ghosts ‘N Goblins
What a great game.. I’ve said before that great games create a unique tone and atmosphere, and G ‘n G certain falls into that camp. This is also a very difficult game which will enrage you whenever a flying bat or swooping devil knocks all your armour off.
This WWII plane game is fantastic. Lets face it, its fun to just shoot lots of stuff down in video games, and thats what you get to do here. Unlimited firepower, just get behind the enemy planes and shoot. And then.. wait a minute, whats that? That plane is huge! uh oh…
13. Blades of Steel
The greatest of all sports games. Period.
The loser of a fight is the one that gets a penalty. Nuff said.
12. Mega Man 2
The Mega Man games were such a brilliant concept. He fights villains with different traits/powers (like woodman, flame man, airman) and gets their powers when he defeats them. The gameplay of jumping and hooting, also lots of fun. The power bars for his health and power, also lots of fun. The second is probably the best, since they figured out how you can save your previous game, and the villains and levels were the best in this one.
11. Star Tropics
RPGs are pretty cool. I love maps, so I love wandering around maps trying to find my way through the levels. Star Tropics has an interesting story in an interesting location. Its cooool.
