Greatest Games

There’s a lot that goes into making a great videogame. I wouldn’t know from experience, but when compared to writing songs, which can be done in a matter of minutes, or writing books, which really only takes determination, imagination (or experience) and time, creating a video game from nothing is a process that I can scarcely imagine. Over the course of the nearly 40-year history of videogaming, the industry has come a long way, from bouncing square balls to shooting down gunships in hyper-realistic HD, no entertainment industry has changed as drastically in such a short span of time. Listed below are the ones that have changed my life and that I would give a rating of at least 9.5.
