Super Smash Bros. Melee- Best fighter game ever. Also, best multiplayer game ever.
Soul Caliber II- Third best fighter game ever (First Smash Bros in #2). Awesome fighting, but the multiplayer lacked the fun of Smash Bros. Still
good stuff though.
Timesplitters 2- One of my favorite shooters ever. Also has the best FPS multiplayer ever. IMO it has the second best multiplayer of all time. This
game also has a great multiplayer. That and this game is full of laughs, especially with friends. And like a good few games on this list, it's one
of the few sequels to beat the predecesor.
Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory- Best stealth action game ever. Also has one of the best single player modes. Co-op is full of fun too.
Spider-Man 2- This I think is the best comic/movie made into a game ever. It also gets props for pulling off a good free roam mode, which few games
do right. One of the few sequels better than the original.
Unreal Tournament 2004- One of the best FPS's, has a great multiplayer too. It's absolutely frantic and fun at the same time. In it's genre it's
probably second only to Timesplitters 2.
The Sims 2- This one is huge on originality. This is one of the few sequels that has as much originality as it's predecesor. And it's another one
of the few sequels better than the original.
Starfox 64- This game was just fun. I can't explain why talking animals in space ships is so much fun, but it is. It was full of action, and had an
entertaining multiplayer. But it was just one of those games thats pure fun. This is a true classic in a world that doesn't have too many.
Simcity 4- Like the Sims 2, it has a ton of originality and content. Like the Sims 2, this is one that you can play forever and never see it all.
It's also a good improvement on it's predecesors which were classics in their own right.
Animal Crossing- I know, I'm getting a lot of raised eyebrows on this one. But it's such an inovative game. It may seem similar to the Sims, but
it differs so much, and adds so much that it's not really comperable. I think that Animal Crossing is one of the most innovative games of it's
Starcraft- I don't think I need to say much else. It is the best RTS ever made. It's got everything an RTS needs, that and it set the bar for all
RTS's. That and it had awesome style and probably the best storyline I've ever seen. Too be honest, despite being all the way from 1998, it's
capable of enveloping me into it as much as Halo, or even the whole Star Wars series. This one has a special place in my heart.
And finally Command and Conquer: Generals- This one gets special mention for letting me conduct NAPALM strikes on terrorists as the Chinese. That and
letting me feel like a James Bond villian with the US's particle cannon.
