Top 51*

I have been drafting my top 50 list for a very long time. It has changed a lot over the years as my feelings on games have changed, and it will change again in the future. This is a snapshot of an ever changing list. It's a list that I would scratch down while sitting on the path or waiting for class. The idea of making all-time lists for any topic, from sports stars to horror novels, is always appealing to me as it forces you to critically think and reflect on the entire topic.

This particular top 50 list is the result of 4 drafts that I went through. I think its a good reference if you are looking for something fun to play. For older games I did factor in my experience with them at the time of playing them, while trying not to let nostalgia overload my perception. I tried to avoid multiple sequels from one franchise if the core of the experience didn't drastically change from one title to another. These are my personal favorites I did not take into account any outside consensus of the best games of all time. Without further ado here it is:
Updated 7/6/2018- I gave some more thought into games that meant a lot to me when I was younger and added them to the list, I also realized I forgot to include Arkham City on the list. Also I didn't have the heart to take Dark Cloud off the list so now there's 51
