15 Games in 15 Minutes meme

So, there’s this 15 games in 15 minutes meme going around the Interwebz, and it’s been many moons since I participated in one of these things. The rules are simple and as follows: List 15 videogames you’ve played that will always stick with you. List the first 15 you can recall in no more than 15 minutes. Don’t take ages pondering this one over that one over that one. Just react.

And here’s my 15 in no special order:

  1. Suikoden II
  2. Super Metroid
  3. Shadow of the Colossus
  4. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
  5. Super Mario Bros. 3
  6. Fallout 3
  7. Chrono Cross
  8. Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy
  9. Dark Cloud 2
  10. Command & Conquer: Red Alert
  11. Twisted Metal
  12. Super Mario World
  13. Animal Crossing: Wild World
  14. Metal Gear Solid
  15. Final Fantasy IX

Some of these might surprise y’all. Why Chrono Cross and not Chrono Trigger? Why Final Fantasy IX and not Final Fantasy VII? What the bleepy-bleep is Dark Cloud 2 doing here? Naturally, I have my reasons, and I think it’d be good to explore this more, but for now, let’s just leave it all as a meme.

What are your quick, unforgettable 15? Feel free to post ’em in the comments below.
