    The only COD games which I feel multiplayer was fun were COD 5, MW2, BO1, BO2.
    The majority of them have really bad campaign's... the only campaign's I enjoyed are BO1 & 2, just completed BO2 around 30 minutes ago on veteran, amazing storyline.

    I guess I haven't played a lot of standalone games. Lots of series in my list. It's numbered, but I'm not 100% set on the order.

    1) Final Fantasy - this series has been such a big part of my life, if I were to rank them by individual titles they'd take up a good chunk of my list, so I'll just put the whole series at the top.
    2) Pokemon - for this series, I can pick a favorite, and it would be SS/HG.
    3) Siren: Blood Curse
    4) Ace Attorney series
    5) The World Ends With You
    6) Mass Effect series
    7) Legend of Zelda - I actually haven't played that much of LoZ, I'd only played them on GBA and I loved Link to the Past and Minish Cap. I just got Ocarina of Time on 3DS, jury's still out on that one since I'm not done but I'm loving it so far.
    8) Skyrim
    9) LA Noire
    10) Left 4 Dead

    Honorable Mentions:

    Bully: Scholarship Edition - so many lolz were had in this game.

    Fable series - this was kind of my pre-Skyrim series. It had a lot of good stuff and I had imagined it would one day be what Skyrim is, but it never really got there and once Skyrim came out it kind of rendered this series obsolete for me.

    Heavy Rain and Walking Dead: The Game - both great games with wonderful stories, and I really enjoyed them the first time around, but they're not really games I would replay a lot. Despite the multiple choices and possibilities, they're more like interactive movies, and I wouldn't play 'em over and over just for different outcomes, I'd rather watch them on Youtube.

    Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy - Similar reason as above, but the story got weird at the end - it was a great mystery/adventure game until all the voodoo crap came out swinging, imo.

    In no particular order...

    1: Skyrim (PS3): This game needs no introduction!

    2: Suikoden 2 (PS1): Beautiful JRPG with a vast range of characters, and a deep story exploring themes of love, trust and betrayal. It's an RPG that focuses on war and politics rather than dark magic taking over the world and stuff. I love all of the games in this series, but this one is extra special because a lot of the dialogue often changed, depending on which characters you took along on certain missions. This really adds to the game's replay value, it's a really engaging RPG that keeps you hooked from start to finish.

    3: Age of Mythology (PC): The only PC game I've ever really got into. I just don't use my PC for gaming. It's also the only RTS game I've ever played, as I've been a lover of Mythology for years, and this game really brings the myths to life. Build towns and temples and fortresses. Raise an army of soldiers and mythical monsters and heroes to fight alongside them. Invoke god powers. Tend farmlands and set up markets to build an economy. Play the story mode or set up your own custom game. Loads of fun!

    4: Adventures of Alundra (PS1): This was an adventure game that was intentionally a rip-off of Zelda to appeal to fans of Zelda 3 on the Super NES. And to be honest, it's better than any Zelda game I've ever played. It's got a similar premise - you're this elf hero who has to seek out the help of 7 guardians and find magical weapons and items to overcome a lot of the puzzles, but this game really put the focus on the villagers who you are helping. you really get to know each of the villagers personally - kind of like a soap opera! And you explore loads of challenging dungeons in the waking world and dream world. It's not a very happy story either - lots of your friends get killed off in horrible ways!

    5: Resident Evil Outbreak (PS2): A RE game that shows us the Raccoon City incident from the perspective of the civilians. It starts off like a normal evening - a group of strangers are enjoying a beer after work, then suddenly the pub is attacked by zombies, and you're thrown straight into this nightmare where you have to use your character's skilled to survive. Fight your way through the streets of Raccoon City, Explore the underground facility, escape from the hospital and the burning hotel and finally try to find a cure for the T-Virus in the Raccoon University. Lots of different endings to discover depending on how you play, and beautiful cut scenes.

    6: Resident Evil Outbreak File #2 (PS2): Outbreak's sister game which gives extra scenarios, including a zoo full of infected animals, a subway crawling with zombies and monsters, an abandoned creepy hospital in Raccoon forest, the RPD police station (which gives us a prequel to events in RE2!) and an alternative ending scenario where you help Umbrella's employees try to escape and hopefully cure the virus. Gaming mechanics have been beefed up, with the ability to move while aiming and shooting. Plus elimination sub-games!

    7: Vandal Hearts (PS1): Turn based RPG with battles set up on maps like a board game. As your characters become stronger through combat, you can upgrade their skills and abilities by giving them a new class. The story is just as engaging as the gameplay - you're fighting to avert a catastrophy from taring the world apart, and along the way, new characters join you and you learn a bit more about their past and how they fit into the story. The battle maps are a lot of fun - with villages beseiged by monsters, haunted ruins, heavily guarded strongholds and even skirmishes in other worlds.

    8: Breath of Fire III (PS1): another beautiful JRPG from the PS1 era, this one features a small cast of characters who come together and want to learn the truth about why the dragons were driven to extinction. We're not saving the world or trying to liberate the land from tyranny, we're really just going on a long voyage of self-discovery. Along the way, we get to discover lots of different spells and skills, and use the master/pupil system to shape each character's attributes in combat. Very cute anime graphics and an adventure that manages to grab you and pull you in.

    9: Suikoden Tactics (PS2): A spin-off game from the Suikoden series, this one admittedly has a crap story, but it's just so much fun! Instead of random encounters, you have maps where you set up your characters and have to use tactics to overcome your enemies. Suikoden's rune magic system works very well for this game, as some spells and weapon techniques let you damage different line ups of enemies. the interaction is very cool, as characters can actually chat with each other during combat, and doing this enables them to work better alongside each other - they can use combination attacks or defend their buddies when they are in trouble.

    10: Suikoden IV (PS2): Yet another game from the Suikoden series, this was actually the least popular in the series, and quite rightly so, because the story wasn't developed as richly as the other games. But it does have it's good points. This game takes place on the high seas, and we gather heroes from all around the islands to help drive back an enemy invasion. The main character is afflicted with a cursed rune that drains his life force a bit at a time, and as the story progresses, we learn more about the rune's tragic history and how it affects the islands. There are some nice mechanics, including customizable sets of armour and sub games to earn prizes and strengthen your characters. Cutscenes have great voice acting and the beautiful seafaring soundtrack really gets me in the mood for a pleasant and unique adventure!

    (After #1, the rest are in no particular order)

    2. Final Fantasy Tactics (the original, I haven't experienced the War of the Lions remake)
    3. Red Dead Redemption (If you haven't played this game, you're seriously missing out)
    4. Final Fantasy IX
    5. Final Fantasy VII
    6. Final Fantasy X (voice over/lip-syncing travesties and some fairly concerning plot holes aside, the commentary on religion is brilliant)
    7. Final Fantasy XII

    9. Resident Evil 4
    10. StarFox 64 (An oldie but STILL a goodie!)

    Absolutely the best title in the series. I have the release pack with the tee shirt and all from 1998.

    God, the hours we all killed in the dorms in college playing StarFox and Goldeneye.

    I almost wrote a paper on that last term! Couldn't find enough sources to cite though, so I went with orientalism/occidentalism in Skyrim instead.

    That is fantastically epic to hear! :D I have long wanted to write such a paper on FFX myself. I still might one day, for my own purposes. Just to do so, to explore it all intellectually. Because the material is so ready, so accessible and prominent. So much symbolism packed into it - it's too bad so many people get overly hung up on the flaws and miss the gold.
