Desert Island.... Video Game Edition

Ok it works like any other Desert Island question. You can have 10 video games to play for the rest of your life, however there’s a catch. The 10 games must all have been made before 2006. Why 2006, you may ask? The last PS1 game was released in 2005 and I thought that would be a good cut off point(So no PS2 games). There are games like RPG maker on PS2 which sort of changes the rules so I was trying to avoid that and some other games that cause issue with the whole 10 game limit. Remember this isn’t your 10 favorite games(I guess it could be). These are the games you will be playing for the rest of your life. So variety might be important.

  1. Final Fantasy 7 (PS1)
  2. NFL Blitz (PS1)
  3. NFL Hangtime (PS1)
  4. 2 on 2 Open Ice Challenge(NBA Jam but for hockey) (PS1)
  5. Tony Hawk 2 (PS1)
  6. Final Doom (PS1)
  7. Diablo 2 (PC)
  8. WWF No Way Out (N64)
  9. Golden Eye (N64)
  10. GTA San Andres (PC)

Damn… didn’t think about GB tetris. It’s one of the games I play the most too. You used to play UT2003? Did you play UT99 as well?

Is Tempest 2000 really that good? I’ve never played it but I heard the soundtrack is fucking awesome on the Jaguar

Without online game play I think I’d get bored of any game pretty quick
I would rather have call of duty and just be limited to hardcore team death match vs any 10 games. That is at least different every time.

Mat Mania!!!

That was the very first arcade game I ever played. I wasn’t even big enough to reach the controls, my dad picked me up to play it. The announcers count when there are pins is engrained in my head. That robotic sort of voice that gives the word “one” like 12 syllables. “Two” was very short and then “THREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE”

I just played a bit of it the other day.

10 games?

I dont think Ive played ten different games in the last 15 years.


end of list.

FF10 is PS2. you can’t have it. FF7/8 and the other games you can.

Few Call of Duty games with the zombie mode and bot mode

Ghost Recon Wildlands

Thats about all I can think of. I tried to list games with some unlimited gameplay modes.
