Top 10 Games: A list of my top 10 games of all time

Confession.  I am a lister.  I love making lists.  Recently I have been re-reading Replay by Tristan Donovan which is a history of video games and for those of you born pre 80’s, it is a wonderful trip down memory lane.  It’s nearly Friday, so I figured why not do something really quite indulgent and compile a list of my top 10 games of all time.

So here they are:

Oh no … what have I done?  This is way way too hard.  Memories of all the other games I have lost days and days too are coming flooding back: Championship Manager (Eidos), Sim City on the PC, Gran Turismo …. OMG … Gran Turismo on PS3 … how did that not make my list?  Doom, Call of Duty, Donkey Kong, Pac Man …


I give up.  The list is what it is.

What’s yours?

    Serious Games, and applications of pop culture in teaching,
    disseminating the cutting edge trends. cat mario online
