Best Video Games of 2005


The Top Ten

1 Resident Evil 4

The best video game of all time!

This is a perfect action-adventure game for so many reasons. It modernizes and revolutionizes a classic horror franchise while making the atmosphere every bit as creepy and terrifying. It has some of the classic outlandishness and humor of a RE game. It's a game with so much nuance and detail. Every level feels handcrafted to perfection. It's linear enough for smooth pacing and progression but it's much more open than the later RE games. - marmalade_skies

Many resident evil fans find this game the best in the series. I love it too. Leon rocks here - Magnolia

Today. Still a great game. So classic that you can find this game in mine around the world!

3 Star Wars: Battlefront II

Love this game - iliekpiez

At least you don't have to pay to unlock stuff

4 Shadow of the Colossus

This is supposedly one of the greatest games of all time. I played it for an hour and was off put by the controls. Maybe I should give it a second chance. - marmalade_skies

Just superb game. And scary as well - Magnolia

27 Kingdom Hearts II
28 NHL 06
29 Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi

32 Mario & Luigi: Partners In Time
