15 games, 15 minutes

Following along with the gaming blog meme "15 Games in 15 Minutes", which I first spotted at Age of Ravens and later at Grognardia.

The rules: Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen games you've played that will always stick with you. List the first 15 you can recall in no more than 15 minutes.

My list:

  1. Dungeons & Dragons (1e, Mentzer Basic/Expert)
  2. Call of Cthulhu (particularly 4th and 5th ed.)
  3. Star Frontiers
  4. Warhammer 40,000
  5. GURPS (3rd ed.)
  6. The Bard's Tale II (for the Amiga!)
  7. TIE Fighter (PC)
  8. Pitfall (Atari 2600)
  9. Villains and Vigilantes
  10. James Bond 007
  11. Starcraft (PC)
  12. Marvel Super Heroes (TSR, FASERIP)
  13. Rolemaster
  14. Tekken 2/3, Soul Caliber (PS2)
  15. Tomb Raider (PS2)
Mostly tabletop gaming, but with a mix of console and computer games. The games in this list have meaning for me because they each could represent a particular stage in my (gaming) life. Also, these might represent different styles of play or design philosophy.
