Definitely a case of your list, your rules I think.
Although one might be cheating oneself by including 50+ game compilations like Megea Drive/Genesis Classics...

Excellent list, Sinclair Gregstrum! A couple on there that sparked some pangs of regret as they only very narrowly missed my list. Speaking of which, I had another crack at my own list tonight and I have it down to 50.

Some heartbreaking decisions, and a lot of changes since my last list in 2016. As mentioned previously, I've tried to avoid choosing games from the same series in order to help with variety. Only The Legend Of Zelda and Hitman made it onto the list twice, both due to recent releases that I've absolutely adored.

Oh, I've put the games in order of release year. Though not necessarily the order I played them in, I felt this provided a sense of chronology.

Enjoying reading through all of the lists in here (Shout out Dynasty Warriors 3) I might have to give it a go but I always end up with too many choices and find it really difficult to narrow down; it's always a bit painful putting these lists together and having to exclude things you love.

I'm surprised to see Silent Assassin in there over Blood Money but that's partly my own nostalgia talking.

Fear not, I like Blood Money pretty-much exactly as much as Silent Assassin. I know for many fans, Blood Money was where IO fulfilled the promise that the Hitman series had held up to that point. For me, almost everything the series would go on to do in Blood Money, and (arguably) the 2016/2018 reboots, was there in Silent Assassin. I know it's a rough experience now, but it's a game that truly blew me away at the time.

Totally get that and I guess that's what makes these lists fun. I know my own list would include some choices that'll seem crazy to everybody else.
