The history of video games is about 30 years old and during this period thousands of good games have been developed, but what are actually the best games in history? What game could you pick up right now and, regardless of your preferences, be sure that you will enjoy it?
Well, to tell you the truth, each one of us has different tastes, and as sure as I am about a couple of games that everyone likes, I bet that you will certainly enjoy some games that I would not play even if you paid me . For me, the couple of games that anyone should try Starcraft, Mafia and Freelancer. That's it, no other gamer I can imagine that get even close to the level of quality you find in the ones I just mentioned above. Everything is perfect, from the story line, to the graphics and game play. The funny thing is that these games are 7 to 10 years old, and I still consider them to be the best ever made. I think it is a general thing, most older games are better and more fun to play than today's games, simply because today all you get the graphics and sound, nothing else, no innovation, no imagination in game play, average story lines and so on.
If you are just starting to see what gaming is all about, I recommend starting with games made prior to 2002. I am sure you will be able to find a couple of top tens that list the best games of all times, and you will see that most, if not all of them, were developed before 2002.
In the end, the best games in history are the ones that you enjoyed the most and that made you feel the entire experience, not just see some images moving around the screen.
Not to mention, games are quite expensive, unless you went to a free game downloads website.
