Tonich's Top Ten Games List

So, there's a new trend going on with top ten games list, and while I was initially reluctant (rather: lazy) to write one and thought of just leaving a comment in the corresponding blog, I finally decided that I wanted my write-up to stay in my blog for me to reread it on long winter nights and feel like I'm worth something. :) I'll make it brief though. Because I'm lazy.
It's so hard to rank my favourite games this way. They are so different, and I love them all so much... but I'll try to do it. And hope that they won't sulk and disappear from my game library forever. :)

10.  The Void. As opposed to games I replay constantly, there are some that I never go back to after completing, and yet I just can't get them out of my head. I contemplate on the game's story (for it's cryptic like hell), I tell my friends about it (and fail miserably because it's not a game you can describe in a couple of sentences), I regularly find images and music that remind me of its art and soundtrack. I've even written a fucking song inspired by one of the game's locations! And yet, I can't force myself to replay it, or recommend it to most players, because as a game it is really unfriendly... Yes, I am talking about The Void. Try it sometime. No, better don't. Or maybe... hell, I can't decide.

And there are also honorary mentions for Dark Souls, Final Fantasy VII, Dune II, Gothic II and Deadly Premonition and a number of other games that I'm sure have slipped my mind. They are all amazing, they just didn't make it on my list.

About Tonichone of us since 12:03 AM on 05.06.2013

Hi everyone!

Please, call me Tonich. That's what everyone calls me. I live in Nizhniy Novgorod - a pretty large and picturesque city in Central Russia (yep, that's it on the header image).

Currently at the age 30, I am a taught historian, reluctant archivist, occasional tour guide and aspiring composer/musician. I write songs, play guitar and sing (badly) for the art rock act The Heckfish. Oh, and I also play videogames. :)

My gaming habits started with the NES era, and my favourite consoles are Sega Mega Drive/Genesis and PlayStation 2. I'm more of a PC player currently, so why don't you check out my Steam Page?

You can also listen to my music here.

I have been blogging here on Destructoid since spring 2014. Here's a selection of my blogs you can read if you'd like to know me better:
