My top ten favourite console games
See Getting personal: A few top ten lists for the background on this series of top ten posts (this is the fifth and final post in the series).
As you can tell from My top ten favourite computer games I do plenty of gaming on my Mac. But I don’t only play games on my computer – I also have a PlayStation 2 and an Xbox 360 (I want to upgrade my PS2 to a PlayStation 3, but I’m waiting for the price to become a bit more in touch with reality).
There are several reasons. One is that some games I really want to play aren’t available for the Mac (most notably the Gran Turismo, Final Fantasy, and Grand Theft Auto series), another is that I find it more relaxing to play games sitting on my couch in front of the TV instead of on a chair in front of the computer.
Several of the games on this list are available for multiple platforms, so I’ve made a note of which platform I have played each game on (PS2 or Xbox 360).
The list is ordered alphabetically, which means I have not ranked these games. Picking ten is hard enough as it is.
- Black (PS2)
- F.E.A.R. (Xbox 360)
- Final Fantasy X (PS2)
- Final Fantasy XII (PS2)
- Forza Motorsport 2 (Xbox 360)
- Gears of War (Xbox 360)
- Gran Turismo 4 (PS2)
- Grand Theft Auto San Andreas (PS2)
- Resident Evil 4 (PS2)
- Silent Hill 2 (PS2)
As you might guess from this list, I play nowhere near as many different console games as computer games. That’s why most of these games are quite recent and there are no oldies like on my list of computer games, though I should mention that I did a lot of gaming on a Philips G7000 in the early eighties.
Now it’s your turn – which are your ten favourite console games? If you want to share, do so either by posting a comment with your list or by posting a link to your own blog.
And that brings me to the end of my series of top ten posts. I hope you had a bit of fun reading them – I sure had fun creating these lists :-).
