I know you said no sports games... but I couldn't resist.

I have Grand Theft Auto 5 listed... But I actually haven't played it yet. I'm waiting on my new 60GB drive to come in because I only had the 4GB system and obviously you need 8gigs to play GTA 5... But I'm assuming the game is as good as people say. We will see...

1. Baldur's Gate 1 and 2 - perfect in so many ways
2. Planescape: Torment - a storytelling tour de force
3. Grim Fandango - every filmlover has to play this, it's an audio-visual wonder

There are numerous other great games of course, but these three are proof that videogames are more than just idle entertainment.

Super Mario 64
- Even if it wasn't the first console video game we had in our home, wrapped together with our new Nintendo 64 Christmas night, my cousin's asking me who I wanted to play it first it'd still be my favorite video game because it's such a damn perfect move into 3D.

Arkanoid- hit the colorful block with your ball, and that's all I sometimes want, more so these days with new consoles that can't even withstand being picked up and placed back down gently. Quickly I'm back at my NES, always faithful.

LittleBigPlanet- Creating your own incredible levels aside Sackboy is the face of PS, taking the throne, Master Chief was Xbox, Mario is to Nintendo, Sackboy to Play Station.

Pixeljunk Monsters-

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City- Triple A soundtrack, faster cars, 4x more weapons, helicopters, greater characters, more choices, more everything in a game sequel where just driving down the beach alongside the city buildings and sunset listening to A Flock of Seaguls was awesome. I still play it.

Tony Hawk's Underground- for the first time your skater could do what you've always wanted him to do from the very beginning of the series and that is to actually get off your board... and walk, like the first human to discover fire THIS was a moment for the history books.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time- the rumors and mysteries within were actually the best thing here, not just the incredible story and monsters, controls, etc. The world was so vast I always and still to this day think there were secrets I hadn't uncovered.

Halo 3- this was the first time since Perfect Dark that me and my cousins got together to either shoot each other or others and online play was a new venue for us, the H3 servers are still running by the way, some proof of Halo's staying power.

Age of Empires III- nothing like building your own town and army, feeling proud, being a leader to then have it be challenged by some mongolian douches.

Sim Tower- building cities in Simcity is engrossing but focusing on just one part of a city, one building, a hotel somehow made me feel closer to my people. I'd even make small ones.
