    What Games Should I be Playing?!?

    At the moment I have an Xbox360, PS3, Gamecube and PS1 at home. I'm looking to buy some of the old consoles that I've owned and (foolishly) sold over the years... SNES, Megadrive, N64, Dreamcast, etc.. I've started putting together a list of games that I want to play for either the first time or to go through again, and was hoping you guys could help me add to the list with your gaming expertise...

    The list is currently as follows;

    Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (Gamecube)
    Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Master Quest (Gamecube)
    Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes (Gamecube)
    Metroid Prime (Gamecube)
    Pikmin (Gamecube)
    Resident Evil 1,2 & 4 (Gamecube)
    SSX Tricky (Gamecube)
    Super Mario Sunshine (Gamecube)


    Metal Gear Solid (PS1)
    Dead Ball Zone (PS1)
    Dino Crisis (PS1)
    Final Fantasy VII & VIII (PS1)
    Oddworld: Abes Oddysee (PS1)
    Oddworld: Abes Exoddus (PS1)
    Persona (PS1)
    Persona 2: Eternal Punishment (PS1)
    Spyro The Dragon (PS1)
    Street fighter II collection (PS1)
    Tekken I & II (PS1)
    Tenchu: Stealth Assassins (PS1)
    Time Crisis (PS1) - WITH LIGHT GUN
    Tony Hawks Pro Skater I & II (PS1)


    Alien Hominid (PS2)
    Final Fantasy XII (PS2)
    Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (PS2)
    Metal Gear Solid II & III (PS2)
    Second Sight (PS2)
    Silent Hill II (PS2)
    Star Wars Battlefront I & II (PS2)




    Metal Gear Solid 4 (PS3)
    FEAR II & III (PS3)
    Heavy Rain (PS3)
    Killzone 3 (PS3)
    Little Big Planet I & II (PS3)
    The Orange Box (PS3)

    I'll be adding more titles as I think of them....

    Chrono Cross (PS1)
    Persona 3 FES/Persona 4 (PS2)
    Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean/Baten Kaitos Origins (GCN)


    As a note, you should play Metal Gear Solid 2/3 on the HD collection available for 360. They really are the best versions of those games.

    Also, as for Shin Megami Tensei, I would mostly recommend Nocturne (PS2) and Strange Journey (DS) for the main series, 3&4 for the Persona spinoffs (as listed above), and the Devil Summoner spinoffs (PS2). The Digital Devil Saga games (PS2) and Devil Survivor (DS/3DS) games are worth checking out as well.

    MGS HD collection is very worthwhile, and as a Brit you'll get Peacewalker with it too.

    I think only Japan didn't get Peace Walker, since we got it in the US too. Except for the Vita version, of course, which only contains 2 and 3 no matter the region.

    There was a Goonies game?!?! You potentially just completed my life...

    I will be buying the Metal Gear Solid HD collection when I get paid & Have just picked up Mario Sunshine & Resi 4 for next to nothing...

    Every time I buy something on the list I think of something else to add, this is getting more expensive by the day..

    Thanks for all the replies so far, keep your suggestions coming!

    There were two! They were made by Konami, the first was an arcade game and the second was on the NES. In that one you had to rescue a mermaid from the Fratellis. lol Japan.

    >Tenchu: Stealth Assassins (PS1)

    This is awesome but the first sequel is even better. You play as either of two heroes, each with their own perspective on events. After completing their playthroughs you go through the story as the villain. He winds up being the most sympathetic character in the game, once you find out why he did what he did.

    Used to love that series but it really went downhill when they introduced multiplayer in Tenchu X. That one just plain sucked. What little narrative the game had was incomprehensible crap. The missions were boring and the implementation of co-op was silly. You'd go online with three other guys, at which point the whole thing would inevitably turn into a race to see who could run to the end of the level and kill the target first. It was a far cry from the methodical hunter gameplay of the originals.

    The "villain" Tatsumaru was genius though. Absolute genius.

    Oh lol. Yeah, I misread your first post and thought you were asking us what we thought of the games you already had listed. Most of what I said there is about the sequel(s) anyway. Its full title is Tenchu 2: Birth of the Stealth Assassins.

    The third one is really good too. It was released on Xbox as Tenchu: Return From Darkness.

    The fourth is Tenchu X and I'm not even going to bother googling that because it was just plain bad. :P

    Oh yeah also Xenogears (PS1). It and Tenchu 2 are probably like, my favorite games of all time.

    Xenogears follows protagonist Fei Fong Wong and several others as they journey to uncover the truth behind mysterious cabalistic entities operating in their world.

    The principles and philosophies of Friedrich Nietzsche, Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung influence the plot, character design, and world of Xenogears. Additionally, the symbols, theological concepts, and devotional practices of several world religions are represented in fictionalized form. Major psychological themes are the nature of identity and human memory, particularly as these relate to the phenomenon of dissociative identity disorder.
    It also has transforming robots.
