Everybody has different opinions about video games.  Mine are probably fairly different from yours. Whether you're trying to get a sense of what I like or you're looking for recommendations, this is probably not the best way to go about it. That said, here are some of the games which I consider to be the best of all time.


Meditative. Relaxing .

Chrono Trigger

Classic. Not too much grinding.


Donut County

Just plain silly.


Some of the best humor and great mechanics.

Hollow Knight

Takes Metroidvania games to the next level.

Hyper Light Drifter

Jet Set Radio

"That escalated quickly" the video game.

Mark of the Ninja

Exceptionally solid 2D platformer.

My Friend Pedro

Absolutely wonderful lunacy.


Physics-based innovations in game mechanics.


Raises the bar for story-driven gaming.

Rain on Your Parade

Positively delightful.

Slay the Spire


Sleeping Dogs

Almost perfectly balanced and calibrated.

Sniper Elite III

The rarely-addressed African theater of WWII.

Superhot VR

Best VR tech demo.
