1. Battlefield 1942- including mods, especially desert combat
2. Counter-Strike: Source
As you can tell I really like shooters and combat games. This has to be the pen ultimate competitive fps for me. I loved the competitiveness and how even if you were pretty good at source there was always somebody who was better. Striving to win made the game fun and it felt great when your cal team did well. Also a big part of why source was so much fun had to be the mods, especially surf maps (which fucking rule) and gun game (there went my accuracy).
3. Mario Kart Double Dash.
I know I know, most people prefer the original Mario Kart to this sequel, but I AM NOT one of those people. I am definitely better at Double Dash than I am at Spanish and I took three years of that. Double Dash really shone with its multiplayer. It was so much fun going in and out of the lead and the levels were very interesting and had enough shortcuts to help you improve your technique. Although this game was best when played with other people the single player was also pretty fun and 150cc is pretty difficult at times. Although I love this game I will say I have lost a lot of controllers to frustration haha.
4.Pro Evo Winning Eleven 9
How about that for a long title name eh? I got this on my 17th birthday and played it pretty thoroughly, but it really became one of my favorite games when I moved into the dorms freshman year of college. I somewhat hesitantly brought my video games including this. It instantly became one of my roomates favorite games, I literally think we spent more time playing and arguing over this game then we did studying. As far as the game mechanics go they were pretty standard for pro evo with a lot of characters OP if they were fast, but hey that made it fun and at least it isnt fifa.
Yep, yeah I know I said 5 video games but I'm changing the last one into more of a MMO category and since I stopped playing SWG to play WoW I think they both deserve a spot. Ill start with SWG, this game fucking RULED. Oh what I can be a jedi? Or I can be a Bounty hunter or a doctor.......? Ok so maybe SWG wasn't the perfect game and maybe my love for Star Wars helped me overlook some flaws, such as making a bunch of classes that were overly reliant on macros and were not at all fun to play but hey we all have our flaws. Seriously though I had so much fun playing this game that I wish Sony would remake it. Does stomping around Tatooine in your speeder and hunting Jedi for in game money ( I was a Bounty Hunter obviously) not sound like fun? Oh I forgot to mention you could also have your own houses and set up communities what a novel game, ahead of its time? Surely.
Ok time for WoW. Well lets just say I was addicted and thats really the best way to describe it. As far as PvP goes WoW for me was the most fun. I played pre BC so yeah... doesn't that really explain everything? Pre BC WoW was awesome and I liked it hahahha.
