Here are my Favorite Games

My favorite games of all-time and my favorite games listed by year. I have played a lot of different games in many different genres, settings and by many different developers on many different platforms.

I know my Favorite Games of All-Time list is very Nintendo dominated, but trust me, it's not because of nostalgia or a lack of experience, these games are just the kind of games I like.

 Parameters for these lists:

  • Games are listed by release year and not the year I played them. However, there is one exception.*

  • No remakes, remasters or re-releases are allowed outside of the All-Time list.

*Hollow Knight came out in 2017 but I played it on Switch in 2018. I'm only making this exception because of how much I love it and how I will always think of Hollow Knight when I think of 2018. It's also just one year anyway. I wouldn't move Metroid: Zero Mission from 2004 for example because I played it in 2016.
