What’s the Word on My Favorite Video Games List?

You may recall that I recently brought up my forthcoming list of my favorite video games of all time. It’s certainly not the first time I’ve done it, but hopefully it will be one of the last times. Because I do have something of a window of time that I’d like to make such a list.

As of now, I’m gunning to make my list of favorite video games of all time some time in mid-January, 2018. Yes, that’s a long ways off from now, but that gives me some good time to play through the big games coming out this year, catch up on some great games I may have missed out on through the years, and replay some old favorites to see if they still hold up.

Another reason for this wait is that I’m aiming to hit the 250 video game reviews milestone by the end of this year (I’m currently at 213), and I think having 250+ video game reviews would be a good time to finally make my list.

Of course, I feel like I’ve already set myself up to disappoint anyone who’s at all interested in this. I fear my constant delays in making an “official” list of favorite games might be misconstrued as trying to build hype, at which case anyone would end up disappointed. After all, at the end of the day, this list of my favorite video games will be just that, a list of my favorite video games. Obviously I’m not trying to get people’s’ hopes up that this will be something special. I’m just an opinionated, scatterbrained individual who loves video games.

I must repeat that the reason I’ve continued to procrastinate this list is because I want to make a good, solid list that can be somewhat definitive of my opinions for a good few years, so that I wouldn’t have to revise said list for, well, a good few years. After all, if you make a list of favorite anythings, and then revise that list just a year later, it kind of takes away the whole reason for the list in the first place. Or maybe I’m just way overthinking things…

Once again, the following bloggers are invited to join in on this, and make their own lists of favorite games.

Mike and Jack of Miketendo64.

Matt from NintendoBound.

Alex from After Story Gaming.

Alex from Mr. Panda’s Video Game Reviews.

Red Metal (who is this masked man?) from Extra Life Reviews.

Of course, no one has to join (I do not possess the ability of mind control…yet), but if you choose to do so, I would like it if we can all do our lists around the same time, and link to everyone else’s lists within our own. And you can list however many games you want, with a minimum of 10 (because no one wants to see a top 9 list).

Okay, now I seriously am repeating myself. Point is, I think I’m finally going to make my first-ever edition of my favorite video games of all time list around mid-January 2018. Hopefully, I won’t write any more of these repetitious filler posts between now and then…

    For me, a top 20 list would be a matter of deciding which 9/10 games get to make the cut, as I roughly know how I would order the 10/10 games. One thing I plan to do in the future is reveal how I would rank the games I’ve reviewed from best to worst.

      I did the same thing (only it was worst to best) back when I hit 150 video game reviews. But I think you knew that already. I’d definitely be interested in seeing your list, but I remember you said you didn’t want to give away all of your 10s before reviewing them. So don’t feel like you have to take part.

    Doing lists like this is difficult so I don’t blame you for delaying it. Top games of all time lists are ever changing so delaying, remaking and adjusting based on your current likes and new releases makes sense.

      Thanks! Hopefully I can finally follow through this time. Oh, and if you want to take part and make your own list, feel free to. Anyone is invited to do it, really. I just continuously name those few because I’m most familiar with their blogs.
