All Time Favorite Games

Creating a top list of all games made me think of what really matters when creating a game as you compare all the games. Why did this game make such impression compared to that other game? Where is the line between intensive fun and long lasting fun? What makes a game last while others become dull really fast. How do I compare the quality of different genres? What genres or game elements would be able to combine?

This ranked list is based on the value of the experience I have had at the time of it's release. This encompasses the amount of pleasure, frustration and the intensity of it.
