Summarizing twenty plus years of one's gaming experience into a single piece with just five top titles is quite an intellectual challenge. You have to go through your memory banks and normalize the sensations and thrills you had back then, and never forget the circumstances you played these games. Your first 256-color game, must be something, eh?
Well, I will try to do that. Of course, since I cannot contain myself, I will mention a few runner up titles, which would enter the list if it had more slots. But we will mostly focus on the five best, the games that changed my character and the way of thinking, affected my anatomy, and made me spend years playing them. We will check the top five games that made the revolution, that changed the industry, and the world as we see it.
