#7FaveGames: We pick our favourite games – what are yours?
Whose list is best and what would you choose?
Everyone loves a Twitter hashtag, right? No, us neither, but we’re suckers for arguing about our favourite games so we couldn’t help ourselves this time.
Here are our picks – do you agree with them and what do they say about us? Let’s take a look. (Note: Tweets may be slow to load)
Evan Kypreos is the boss, so I’m duty bound to say his is an excellent list and… well, actually, I can’t really argue with this one. Age of Empires 2 is a great left field choice.
This is my list and it’s objectively the best list here, obviously. Choosing which Champ Man / Football Manager was a toughie, but 97/98 was my first so it won. Honourable mention to Portal, which was edged out by Life is Strange. I should have chosen Shenmue II, but too late now.
Next is Games Editor Brett Phipps. He likes Mario so much he chose two games, which shows unacceptable indecision. You bottled it Brett, come on man!
Max Parker, Mobiles Editor, really likes football. He was clearly a PlayStation fanboy as a child – how else can you explain choosing James Bond: Everything or Nothing over Goldeneye 64?
Next is Sean Keach, Deputy News & Features Editor. His real list is every WoW expansion pack ever made, so he’s just a liar.
James is Sean’s boss and he clearly stopped playing games a long time ago. He also cheated by mentioning Crash Bandicoot and Mega Man – no adding extras James!
Alastair is Reviews Editor and… I don’t know what A Boy and his Blob is and I don’t want to know. Wins gamer hipster points for choosing Ico.
Michael Passingham, our Computing Editor, should clearly apply to run the Southern Rail franchise. They need a man with his experience.
Ced Yuen, Home Technology Editor, has a strong Nintendo thread through his list. Everyone agreed Star Wars: Rogue Leader was an outstanding addtion, so well done Ced.
Tom, one of our video producers and lead presenter, has a list of true variety. But of all the great Star Wars games he could have chosen, he went with Galaxies? I mean, you can’t be wrong about your personal favourite games, but you also can and he’s totally wrong. KOTOR all the way.
Richard, Wearables & Fitness Editor, wins the obscurity prize for Ouendan, which is the original Japanese version of what we know as Elite Beat Agents on the Nintendo DS. Awesome game.
So those are our picks, but what are yours?
