So I'm working on applying at Digipen institute of technology and amongst the list of things to do for the application (SAT/ACT Scores, fees etc.) are essays to write with one of them being a list of every game you've ever played. I spent about three or four hours digging through my memory, which I was and still am slowly killing with gin so I'm really sure this isn't yet complete but even still it's an impressive list. Check it out, I had fun with this actually.




Mass Effect (Played it multiple times across all consoles and PC. Love it.)


Mass Effect 2 (Played the game multiple times, PS3 only. Love it more.)


Mass Effect 3 (Played multiple times and dozens of hours in multiplayer. Love it most.)


Dragon Age: Origins (Played multiple times. Like it for the story and dialogue but find the combat boring and cumbersome)


Dragon Age 2 (Played 2-3 times. Like it for the combat but it doesn't have the role playing elements from the first game I liked.)


BioShock (Played multiple times. Love it)


BioShock 2 (Played once. Liked it, though not as much as the original.)


BioShock Infinite (Played multiple times. Love it.)


Saints Row: The Third (Played through the story twice and played around in the world for several. Love the sense of humor and the customization options presented.)


Saints Row 2 (Never finished the campaign. Underwhelmed.)


Demon's Souls (Played through several times with various characters, died a lot. Love it for its difficulty and deliberate lack of hand-holding)


Dark Souls (Played through several times, died more. Love it for the same reasons as its predecessor with the addition of the open world.)


Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion (Played for dozens, if not hundreds, of hours. Love the world and the expansion (Shivering Isles) and the progression.)


Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim (Hundreds of hours put in. Like the world, though not as much as Oblivion, but the combat and perks systems made up for that in style)


Fallout 3 (Played through the campaign and some of the expansion DLC but not all yet. Like the game a lot, it's a world I keep going back to consistently though I find the V.A.T.S. system annoying.)


Fallout: New Vegas (Played for 2 hours and game froze. Tried again with the same results and never went back. Hard to recommend.)


Castle Crashers (Played a lot with friends. Love the art style, quirky animation and addicting RPG elements.)


Journey (Played through about a dozen times. Love the bright art and the soundtrack even more. Still get emotional at the end.)


Flower (Played through once and occasionally played a level or two for fun. Liked the game a lot once through but its not all that interesting to go back to.)


Flow (Played through once. Fun to watch but not as much to play.)


Darksiders (Played through once. Enjoyed for the most part but certain elements could have been improved.)


Darksiders 2 (Played through once. Much like the first game I enjoyed it but wished for more or better things from it but the RPG elements were a great addition. Really like the art style of both games.)


Dishonored (Playing through currently. Like it a lot for its refreshing take on stealth without holding the player's hand. Not a fan of the morality system or the nonsensical and needless addition of zombies.)


Metal Gear Solid 4 (Played through multiple times and a few hours of multiplayer. Love the game for its elaborate cutscenes and the polished stealth gameplay.)


Metal Gear Solid 3 HD (Played through once. Liked the makeover the game got while retaining everything that made the original version so memorable.)


Far Cry 3 (Played for dozens of hours but have yet to complete. Love the gorgeous open world and the options in which the player can explore it but the story and main characters offer only frustration.)


Far Cry 2 (Played dozens of hours and did complete. Enjoyed the savannah world to explore but the enemy AI and the malaria were awful.)


NHL 11 (Played hundreds of games. Like it a lot but being a sports game it's nothing special.)


Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit (Played a few hours and have yet to complete. Love the art, humor and gameplay with some minor plat-forming annoyance.)


Wipeout HD (Played dozens of hours. Love the future art theme and fast paced racing.)


SSX (Played only a few hours since it was just recently purchased. Enjoying it a lot so far. Much more addicting than anticipated.)


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (Played campaign once and several hours of multiplayer. Love the action but hate grenades in multiplayer.)


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (Feel the same about this game as the previous. Essentially they're the same.)


Call of Duty: Black Ops (I feel indifferent on this one. It's basically more of the same but the same part of it happens to be fun.)


Call of Duty: World at War (Same as my Black Ops opinion.)


Resistance: Fall of Man (Enjoyed at the time but not as fun to go back to.)


Resistance 2 (Played through once. Enjoyed but hoped for more.)


Overlord: Raising Hell (Played a bit, never finished. Enjoyed for its unique ideas but was held back by lack of polish and wavering difficulty.)


Overlord 2 (Played through once. Enjoyed for the same reasons as the first game and some interesting additions but still lacked polish.)


The Walking Dead (Played through once. Enjoyed the tense, emotional story and meaningful decisions a lot but was disappointed with the final chapter.)


Resident Evil 4 HD (Played through once. Controls are rough and can't be customized but still liked playing through it again.)


Resident Evil 5 (Played through once. Tried to enjoy, no success.)


Resident Evil 6 (Played several times. Love it.)


Red Dead Redemption (Played through twice and spent several hours in the open world. Also played the Undead Nightmare DLC once. Enjoyed both a lot.)


Grand Theft Auto 4 (Played through once and spent dozens of hours messing around the city. Love it.)


L.A. Noire (Played through once. Love the time period and dialogue systems but the "detective" aspects were a little easy.)


God of War 1 HD (Loved the original back when it first came out and the HD makeover looks nice but some gameplay aspects didn't age so well.)


God of War 2 HD (Played through once. The sequel holds up better then the first game while still looking great.)


God of War 3 (Played through a few times. Love the combat, art and overall scale.)


Castlevania: Lords of Shadow (Played through once. The art, story and characters are incredible but the combat is lacking in areas.)


The Orange Box (Played through the Half Life games twice each and Portal a few times. No Team Fortress.)


Portal 2 (Played through twice. Love the humor and most of the puzzles are great with a few exceptions.)


Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe (Played a bit. Mediocre.)


Mortal Kombat 9 (Played for dozens of hours. Loved it.)


Watchmen: The End is Nigh (Played once with a friend. It was fun with a friend but I can't see myself enjoying it on my own.)


Batman: Arkham Asylum (Played 2-3 times. Loved the level design and characters and the combat is near perfect.)


Batman: Arkham City (Played probably about 8 times. Love everything about this game. It's as close to perfection as I've seen this generation.)


LittleBigPlanet (Played for several hours. The creativity and support of the community is amazing.)


Final Fantasy XIII (Played for about 6 hours and got uninterested in the story, characters and combat systems.)


Burnout Paradise (Played for several hours. I like the open world but prefer the older style systems that previous iterations had and was disappointed by the lack of crash mode. Still enjoy playing it from time to time.)


Unreal Tournament 3 (Dozens of hours online. Have loved this series for a long time and this one kept with expectations.)


Star Wars: Force Unleashed (Played through twice. Like the powers and messing around with the Euphoria engine but the lacks creativity in design and combat situations leading to a lot of repetition.)


Star Wars: Force Unleashed 2 (Played through once. The game made better on some its boring combat but ultimately fell short with a severely short campaign.)


X-COM: Enemy Unknown (Played twice. Love having a solid strategy game on console and the game keeps a tense and rewarding feeling throughout.)


MAG (Played a few hours. I enjoyed the technical aspects of the game and what was accomplished but was uninterested in an online only shooter.)


Borderlands (Played through all characters. Love the game for it's MMO concepts while still sticking to shooter mechanics but the story was fairly boring.)


Borderlands 2 (Played through twice so far. Everything that made the first game so great plus a fantastic story, amazing humor and engaging DLC. Totally love it.)


Shadows of the Damned (Played through it once. The humor is top-notch with Johnson being one of my favorite characters ever but the final chapter gets annoying.)


El Shaddei: Ascension of the Metatron (Played through once. The art style is fascinating, I wish we could have more games like this.)


Dante's Inferno (Played through twice. Enjoyed the artistic take on the epic poem by Alighieri, even when it did get a little sensational at times, and fluid combat.) 


Dead Space (Played through several times. One of my favorite horror experiences.)


Dead Space 2 (Played several times. On par with the original.)


Infamous (Played once. Enjoyed the powers and story but thought the world was boring and the animations left a lot to be desired.)


Infamous 2 (Played once. Same opinion as the first game.)


Prototype (Played once. Loved the insane powers but the combat got annoying at times with so many things hitting the character.)


Devil May Cry 4 (Played once. Liked the art and stylish combat but the story was just silly.)


Bayonetta (Played once. Liked the stylish combat much like DMC4 with an interesting, sometimes almost off-putting, focus on sexuality.)


Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning (Played for a few hours. Got bored with repetition.)


Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 (Played a couple of hours. Didn't care for it.)


Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction (Played twice. Loved the story, humor and Pixar-esque art style.)


Ratchet and Clank HD (Played once. The HD makeover looks great and the controls hold up through time.)


Ratchet and Clank: Going Commando HD (Played once. Same as above with better shooting mechanics.)


Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal HD (Played once. My favorite of the series. Holds up the best of the PS2 remakes.)

Move Sports Champions (Played several hours. Fun to play with friends and the controls work well.)


Dead Space Extraction (Played once. Great with a friend.)


Assassin's Creed (Played once. Enjoyed the world and combat but not the story.)


Assassin's Creed 2 (Played once. Same opinion as the first game.)


Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood (Played once. Enjoyed this one more then previous games but still found the story uninteresting.)


Assassin's Creed: Revelations (Played once. Same opinion as Brotherhood.)


Assassin's Creed 3 (Played once. By now I've given up on the story but the naval missions are awesome.) 


Shadow of the Colossus HD (Played once. Love the HD makeover and the game looks incredible in 3D. Still as memorable as the original release, made better by the lack of frame-rate issues.)


ICO (Played a few hours. Enjoy the world and art on display but I'm finding no motivation to finish this one.)


Vanquish (Played once. Liked it.)


Dark Sector (Played once. Thought it was average.)


Alien Vs. Predator (Played once. Enjoyed the unique ideas but the game lacked polish in other areas.)


Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (Played twice. Loved the setting and technology the game brought but grew tired of the gameplay towards the end.)


Uncharted 2: Amongst Thieves (Played 2-3 times. The game improved everything the first originally had and added exciting new features. Love it.)


Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception (Played 2-3 times. Like this game for all the same reasons as the previous two.)


Heavy Rain (Played once. Enjoyed the engaging story, characters and tense choices the game offered.)


Heavenly Sword (Played once. Really good looking game but not the best playing.)


DJ Hero (Played several hours. Loved the original track for the game and the peripheral was surprisingly fun.)


Fat Princess (Played a few hours. Enjoyed it with friends.)


Linger In Shadows (Played once. Not sure if I'd call it a game but it was interesting nonetheless.)
