I know it is hard to believe that Kim Possible made my list. It has nothing to do with the fact that the heroine has the same first name as me but the fact that the gameplay for Kim Possible is super adorable and witty. Its a little silly but at the same time, very imaginative. Who doesn’t want to use gum as a weapon and if I remember correctly, there’s even a good bit of teamwork involved also. This is possibly the least likely to ever be made into a PS4 version since Kim Possible is so out now but it doesn’t detract that it is a great game.
It’s the game that started all those reaction based mechanics. The player had to know the controller and be able to react just as well as it was methodically figuring out where to go, how to get out and numerous fight scenes. Prince of Persia is thrilling to play and equally engaging to watch as the story unfolds.
Dance Dance Revolution is one that I will never get rid of. It’s the one that started up all these dancing games you have now. Something simple that started in the arcade has a ton of different versions released already. While I haven’t played the earlier versions thoroughly, I do own quite a few on Playstation 2 but nothing quite beats the fun I get when I put in Supernova 2. It has great song selections and still keeps the heart of the Eurobeat music that started all this up.

A wolf and his magical paintbrush that revives a fallen city infected by darkness. There are goddesses and spirits along with silly characters and a bossy sidekick. The game mechanics are fantastic as you get to use the joystick part of the controller to maneuver the brush strokes in various ways to execute attacks and revive the different areas. The art is classic and beautiful all at the same time. It’s an artistically unique gaming experience that everyone needs to try.
The cream of the crop of my selection has to go to Radiata Stories. This game is what defines a great game. Its like an RPG but with button-mashing attack sequences. It keeps the non-tactical part of life but still giving the thrills of levelling up the character and building your crew as you recruit more available people to join your cause. You play as Jack who travels to become a knight and realizes that he ends up in a battle between humans and non-humans. Halfway through the game, you get to choose who you side with. Along the way, there are side quests to accomplish and favors to do in order to get those characters. The dialogue is hilarious and Jack is one of the most clueless but dynamic characters out there and its not just him, the people he encounters and the magical creatures are a lot of fun. Plus, it has the perfect incentive to make you want to go back and play it all over again to see the second ending.
