The High Horse Audit: My 50 Favourite Games

Following in the footsteps of Kotaku Australia editor, Mark Serrels, I've decided to share my slant on what are the top 50 games of all time. There was a great disclaimer to his list that I think I'll apply to my own:

– I know [insert game here] isn’t on the list. I know that’s outrageous. Make your own list and post it in the comments!
– [Edited] There's a few Star Wars/Mario/fighting games in his list and it reflects the games I like and the games I’ve fallen in love with.
– People like different things for different reasons!
– Please do not use this list to justify any future comments I make in the future, or even things I might have said in the past. This is simply a list that represents how I feel right now. It would be different if I were to make it in the next 30 minutes, let alone in a year or two!
– I’ve written down the platform I played the game on — I realise it might have been on other platforms!
– Yes, they are ranked!
