2 Metal Gear Solid

Not gay


3 The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

I am the Dragonborn!

No! I am the DragonBorn! No seriously this game is awesome. I have no idea how many hours/weeks/months I’ve played this and on a variety of platforms. One of the best games ever made.

4 Pokemon Gold & Silver/Crystal

Best pokemon games ever

5 The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask


Yes. tatl is so quiet compared to navi. such an understatement

6 Grand Theft Auto San Andreas

This list is terrible - venomouskillingmachine

7 The Last of Us
8 Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
9 Half-Life 2

Best Game Ever in my opinion.

10 The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Why is this even on here? This game is trash compared to all of the others and super overrated. It doesn't even have a real story! The hype train needs to STOP.

The Newcomers

? Injustice 2
? Overwatch

I wanted to get this game but I have Battlefield 1 and Destiny 2 which are awesome so I won't be caring about this game soon.-Coolguy1,formerly Trollishman1
