5. Bubble Bobble
This was a game I never actually owned, but was in my household for a short amount of time. I don't really remember the point of it, other than there being a substantial amount of bubbles involved. I do, however, remember playing this game with my buddy Claire and thinking it was one of the best things I had even seen.
4. Tomb Raider 3
Before the game pretended to come to an end and moved to a more sophisticated platform, I reckon this was probably the best game in terms of graphics and story. However, I have never actually owned it myself and have only really experienced the game by watching others play on it (by others, I mean Laura), and making token contributions which are most likely ignored by the those with the controllers in their hand.
3. Croc: Legend of the Gobbos
This is one of those games that I am only really familiar with the first few levels. As mentioned a fair few times by now, I am not very gifted in activities that involve the use of a controller. This game is no exception to that rule. As a result, so that I am able to pretend to be a small, but perfectly formed crocodile and make awesome sound effects (ka-pow! ka-splat!), I have to keep playing the same levels repeatedly. I am awesome at the first island. Do not doubt it.
2. Spyro The Dragon
My Wikipedia research has just informed me that there are 13 games in this series. Who knew? Although I am not really that surprised. Who would not want to be a cute, little purple dragon with attitude? Just me? Okay then. I pretty much spend most of my time playing this game charging round and round in circles looking for sheep. I would like to to think, that if I had more patience, I would be able to complete this game. I suspect I am in denial.
1. Tomb Raider
Hey, guess what? I am pants at this game too! I put this game above all others though for several reasons. For example, although she isn't actually a real person, Lara Croft is a bit of a heroine. It is also pretty cool to roam around raiding tombs in a highly athletic manner. Of course, I also do this for real in my down time, but when my shorts are in the laundry and my satchel is at the repairers, I still need the practice.
