Some fun facts. 2000 was my favorite year for games, with a total of 7 favorite games being released in that calendar year. 2016, 2010, 2008, and 2002 were all strong years, with 1998 and 1994 receiving honorable mentions. I didn't start playing games until 1986-ish, so it's fun to look back at this. Video. Games. ROCK.

I don't think i could even name 100 games. Let alone favourites. So for now I'll just mention games like Hitman: Blood Money, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, Resident Evil 4 and Rocket League. I have a hard time remembering others.

I'll also add Assassin's Creed II to the list. I passed that game 100% in only 3 days but i loved it.
