Must-Play Games For Any Platform

A Listmania! list by Shannon R. Marcello
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "You do two things in college - write term papers and play loads of video games to blow off the steam during breaks. These are just a few that I'd recommend to anyone and it's probably gonna change as I do."
Silent Hill 3
1.  Silent Hill 3 by Konami
The list author says:
  "Everyone always goes directly to Silent Hill 2 when recommending a Team Silent project, but I actually thought this one was scarier. You might want a little background information from the first game, but otherwise, just play this one in the dark when you're alone."

Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon
2.  Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon by Konami
The list author says:
  "This is one of those largely forgotten platformers for the N64, but it still remains one of my favorite games just because of how fun it is. If you can ignore really bad translations, this game has giant robots with their own epic theme music. Surely you can relate."

Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition - Playstation 3
3.  Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition - Playstation 3 by Capcom
The list author says:
  "You'll either love it or hate it. It's not a survival horror game like the Resident Evil's of yore - in fact, very little has changed from RE 4's system, but it's got a few omg moments and a few of the chapters are honestly fun to play through. The story's kind of stupid, but you weren't really expecting Charles Dickens, were you? It's worth getting for the Mercenaries mini game alone."

Batman: Arkham Asylum [Game of the Year Edition]
4.  Batman: Arkham Asylum [Game of the Year Edition] by Warner Bros.
The list author says:
  "The best thing about this game is the fact that it's multi-plat, because even if you aren't that into Batman, you will enjoy playing as him. The enemies can get a little repetitive, but the story's good and it's the only time a Batman game has ever been mildly creepy. For reference, please see Scarecrow boss fights."
$16.59   Used & New from: $5.25
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (382 customer reviews) | 7 customer discussions

PsychoNauts
5.  PsychoNauts by Majesco Sales Inc.
The list author says:
  "It's a platformer in which you're a kid at summer camp, learning to hone your psychic powers and you do this mostly by traveling through other people's minds. The Xbox version has an annoying glitch where your clothes will turn blue, but it's the only game I know of where you call another character with a piece of bacon."
Used & New from: $13.97

Dissidia Final Fantasy - Sony PSP
6.  Dissidia Final Fantasy - Sony PSP by Square Enix
The list author says:
  "It's not that I don't like RPGs, but I find them pretty boring these days. This game is both a decent fighter and an awesome nostalgia generator. For when Square was actually good. For all of you people who ever wanted to play as Sephiroth, your prayers have been answered. Or if you just wanna be cheap, go with Terra every single time."
$12.99   Used & New from: $4.88
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (113 customer reviews)

Dead Space (PlayStation 3)
7.  Dead Space (PlayStation 3) by Electronic Arts
The list author says:
  "Anyone who was wanting a combination between the movie Alien and Silent Hill, this is your game. Everything in every environment is there to creep you out and that's before they start dropping enemies on your head. And by the way, trying to beat the game for the One Gun Challenge, best of luck. That's a special little nugget of hell. PS3 and 360 followers rejoice."
$19.33   Used & New from: $8.73
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (362 customer reviews) | 18 customer discussions

Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil
8.  Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil by Capcom
The list author says:
  "It's an update from the pixelated original with (slightly) improved voice acting and downright beautiful graphics. Not much has changed in terms of story and a lot of the tasks you have to undergo are the same (love that itchy, tasty), but it's still a solid remake. My only complaint is this: deliver us from 3-D controls and the up-is-always-forward-cult."
$16.84   Used & New from: $10.94
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (93 customer reviews) | 7 customer discussions

Soul Calibur II - Xbox (Platinum)
9.  Soul Calibur II - Xbox (Platinum) by Namco
The list author says:
  "Truth be told, if you've played one SC game, you've pretty much played them all. Aside from a few new characters here and there, not much changes. This one is just the best one in terms of controls (for me at least), and you get either Heihachi from Tekken, Spawn, or Link from the Zelda series depending on which system you're playing on. My advice? Go with Spawn or Link. Seriously."
$19.99   Used & New from: $0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (108 customer reviews)
