    What is the best video game of all time? Pong? Gears of War? Mike Tyson's Punch-Out?

    I'm not a huge "gamer," but there are a few games that have sparked my interest:

    - Contra
    - Super Mario Brothers trilogy
    - original Tony Hawk (the one that had a demo that came with a Pizza Hut pizza)
    - Baldur's Gate
    - Mass Effect series

    Final Fantasy VII is the game to end all games. It was amazing when it first came out. It holds up well even today.

  20. I am going to go with one nobody will probably say, but Crash Bandicoot Racing. It was one of the first PS1 games I ever got and my dad used to play it with me. Always weird seeing him play video games.

    Other than that I would say Mario Cart 64, we would play the **** outta that in college.
