Convince future generations how dig it up about how amazing gaming was. You can pick 5 games.
I'd go for the Team ICO Collection, Katamari Forever, The Orange Box, Spore and CoD 4. IMO, this represents a good selection of diversity, from gritty realism, to cartoon realism, to isolation and bleak loneliness, to world creation and absolutely insanity.
1. Mirrors Edge
3. The Witcher
4. Red Alert 3
5. Pokemon Blue
1.SummonKnight Swordcraft story 2 (Pretty old GBA game)
3.Mass effect 2 (muahaha drop em right in the middle of the trilogy >:D)
Rise of Nations
Mass Effect 2
Dragon Age: Origins
Guess who likes RPGs...
Baldur's Gate series (You can play them as one game after all!)
Bit RPG heavy there, huh.
Super Mairo Bros 2
The Orange Box
Legend of Zelda: Link to the past
I'm mostly picking for the value since they would be worth alot of money in the future (well for three of them).
- The Orange Box
- Morrowind: Game of the Year
- Starwars: Knights of the Old Republic
- Shadow of the Colossus
- Silent Hill
The warning from history.
And for the good games,
Team Fortress 2,
Fallout: New Vegas
Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny
Assassin's Creed 2
I will then proceed to stand around awkwardly as they exchange nervous glances and give false praise to these games I adore, fearing that they may offend my feelings, leaving me a tearful wreck.
I would put in:
X-Com, because it is such an enduring classic
Zelda OoT, because it was the only game in the franchise that truly revolutionised it
CoD 4, because it kicked off generation kill streak (for better or for worse)
Morrowind, because everyone forgets about that, and i still find its world more full of wonder than its successors
and finally, Civ 5, because hexes are cool. (seriously though, this was a toss up between 4 and 5 and i gave it to 5 because i hated the "stack 'o' doom")
I wouldn't put minecraft in because people will still be playing it.
