I love RPGs, Adventure games, Platformers, RTS- ah screw it, I enjoy pretty much most genres out there, so long as the games themselves are good.

Besides games, I love Tarentino movies, and I try to keep up with the fantasy genre when I read books (Though lately A song of Ice and Fire has pretty much taken over my life).

I play games on every major platform , except the 360 since mine died a couple years back.

Today is the launch of the PS4. The Xbox one follows suit in a week. The WiiU is also getting its groove on and showing us some sweet games. Hard to believe we're entereing a new console cycle. Crazier still, this last one has been going on for 8 years, and isn't quite done yet. Handhelds are also getting in on the fun, with this year being the best yet for the 3DS and some much neede new life being breathed into the Vita.

So as we get ready to move on to bigger and hopefully better, I thought I'd take a look back at the very best of what we got during these last 8 years. Over the next 2 or so weeks, I will count down the 8 best games we got (YMMV, obviously. This is strictly an opinion piece.).
Here are the rules:

-Must have released between November 1st 2005 and October 31st 2013
-Any platform is eligible (including mobile and older systems, as long as the game itself follows the other rules)
-Cannot be a re-release or a simple port. Remakes are OK as long as they bring major changes to the Game.

I'll reveal #8 on Sunday, along with an honorable mention (One of those will come with every  part of the countdown)

And here is the First Honorable mention. A great game that did not quite make the top 8.





The Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Released: Nov 19th 2006(Wii)/Dec 6th 2006(GCN)

I love this game to bits. I really do. It has some of the best dungeons and boss fights in the series, and I love this version of Hyrule. Anyone with a Wii or Gamecube owes it to themselves to track this down and play it.
Sadly, the visuals have aged quite a bit since launch, and this may be one of the games that suffered the most in the long term from the Wii's lack of HD support. Playing this on a modern TV will make your eyes bleed.

To anyone that can get past that particular flaw, though (Or do like me and hook the Wii up to an old TV), this is one Adventure for the history books.



Curious to see what makes it into the top 8? Check back every couple of days, and see if your favourites get included!
