Snake’s Top Tens

Top Ten Games
Games I’ve played more than once because they were so kickass. If you consider yourself a serious PC Gamer, you should definitely play these. Here they are in no particular order:

  • Max Payne (first game was better than second; I must have played it like 2-3 times; bullet-time still kicks ass)
  • No One Lives Forever 2 (both games are really good, but I like the second one cause it adds skills like Deus Ex; i need to play this again)
  • Deus Ex (oh fuck, I love this game; I’ve played it 9 times!)
  • Half-Life (it’s a fucking classic; I’ve played it like 4 times; way better than HL2; has some awesome mods, like TFC)
  • Rise of Nations (logged the most time playing this than any other game; perfect execution of RTS micro-management)
  • Unreal Tournament (all iterations; my favorite platform for free-for-all killing action; great mods)
  • Dungeon Siege (nice implementation of RPG gaming for non-hardcore types; I know Marcus played this several times, I played it twice)
  • Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (I really dig the layout and retro feel of this GTA iteration compared to the others; played it three times)
  • Doom (classic killing; shareware is addictive stress reliever)
  • Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast (a close call, but I played it so many times, I had to add it; this is the way all the Jedi Knight games should have played)

Other close calls: Quake 2, Call of Duty, and Far Cry

Top Ten Album
Albums that I keep coming back to and everyone should give a listen if they like the genre. In no particular order:

  • Cake – Fashion Nugget (nice mix of big band and alt. rock; addictive lyrics)
  • Nine Inch Nails – The Downward Spiral (you haven’t lived until you’re heard this; industrial)
  • Prodigy – Fat of the Land (more electronica-based alt. rock and some ambient)
  • Rob D – Furious Angels (instrumental rock; strings and beats)
  • Ulrich Schnauss – A Strangely Isolated Place (straight electronica)
  • Way Out West – Intensify (very techno)
  • BT – Movement in Still Life (trance/techno, with some harder and more rock-like stuff)
  • Blue States – Man Mountain (I call it chill music, but it’s probably like lounge jazz/easy listening)
  • Space – Spiders (rare eurorock/electronica; addictive lyrics)
  • Delerium – Poem (new age; lovely vocals and beats)

Feel free to disagree with me on these, but keep it to yourself.
