We can finally say that Next Generation in gaming is in full swing with the release of the final 2 entries in console war in just about a months time. To commemorate this event we’ve decided to take a look back at all of our favorite games, in alphabetical order, across every generation. We’re calling this the Games You (Probably) Should Have Played.

Some of our choices will be mainstream titles, some will be indie games that you’ve probably never heard of. A handful of these selections will be older then you, while others are younger than your car. All that matters is that in some way we feel that these games are worth playing. So come along for the ride, as we move into game that start with “C”. Don’t forget to tell us what your favorites are in the comments below!

Conker’s Bad Fur Day (N64 – 2001)
This game was terrible, but in the best kind of way. Back when this came out on the N64 I had no idea just how much fun I would eventually have with it. From the beginning I thought it looked interesting, but it wasn’t until a year or two after it came out that a friend got it and did the fun really start. The story isn’t anything amazing, your usual 3D platformer where you fight poop and pee on things. The real fun here is in the multiplier. Where else can you fight squirrels against teddy bears in all kinds of bloody violence. A couple years ago I got my hands on a new N64 cheap, and the first thing I did was jump on eBay and find a copy of this game. And while the graphics don’t live up, grabbing a samurai sword and flipping around as a teddy bear killing the hell out of squirrels certainly did.

Honorable Mention has to go to Chef Boyardee’s Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden, Chapter 1 of the Hoopz Barkley SaGa(PC) it’s a free download and absolutely ridiculous is a really awesome way. If you’re into RPG’s and craziness give it a shot.

Command and Conquer: Tiberian Sun (PC – 1999)
I’ve played a ton of RTS games in my day, but none of them were as memorable as my time with C&C: Tiberian Sun. The warring factions were both incredibly unique, and powerful. The story was told in awesome FMVs. And by awesome, I mean super campy. And the game just played superbly. It’s a shame the series took a steep decline in quality after Westwood was purchased by EA.

Castlevania (NES – 1987)
This game took timing and patience to a whole new level. Especially when those Medusa heads start flying. Side scrolling adventure had never been this dark. Suddenly you were thrust into the persona of Simon Belmont fighting monsters of lore and skeletons culminating in a battle with Death and Dracula! Nothing could prepare the player for the huge screen presence of THE Dracula.

Counter-Strike (PC – 1999)
This is arguably the most famous Mod of all time and one of my personal favorite FPS games of all time. The game started as a mod to the original Half-Life and later became a full-fledged game. The game is best known for its realistic damage and no respawns. There were originally 3 game modes: hostage rescue (counter-terrorist must rescue the hostages), demolition (terrorists must destroy a target site), and assassinaton (CTs must escort the VIP who is armed only with a pistol to the extraction point) with the first 2 being the most popular. All rounds would also end if all the players on either side are killed. This is a fun, highly skilled game that I’ve been playing for years, if you like multiplayer FPS games and have a even half-decent PC you must play this game.
