The Legend of Zelda series, hands down. Other than that, I don't play video games that much.

Playing video games is one of my favorite hobbies. I'm glad you made this topic TRJ! :mrpurple:

Here are my favorite series:
-The Legend Of Zelda (only played four, but it's good enough to put on the list)
-Mario games in general (includes sports)
-Sonic the Hedgehog (before he went downhill)
-Spyro the Dragon (for PS1)
-Crash Bandicoot (same as Spyro, but the racing games were fun)
-Jak
-Hot Shots Golf
-Tony Hawk's Pro Skater
-Driver
-Megaman (not all of them)

If I were to make a top 5 list of my all time favorite video games, I think this is what it would look like:

5. Hot Shots Golf Fore                  -A really underrated and unknown game. One of my personal favorites. It blows Tiger Woods games out of the water!
4. Mario Kart Wii                          -Just an all-around great game to play. So much replay value, especially with online play. So much fun!
3. Sonic Adventure 2 (Battle)         -To me, the best Sonic game. Almost endless replay value and a thrill to play. It never gets old!
2. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past       -A virtually perfect game. One I'll always want to come back and play. Outstanding game!
1. Megaman Legends                    -Now THIS is a perfect game to me. So many awesome childhood memories and I always love coming back to play it. I love it!

Zelda will always be an awesome series in my mind. I don't play much video games now either, but I always find time to go back and play OoT and MM again.  :mrred:

And PP319, I have played almost all the same games as you did. I have played Sonic on the Genesis and I loved those 2D games. I hate the 3D games though.

And I love the Crash series too for the PS1 for the most part. The ones on the PS2 weren't that great though. I swear Crash Bandicoot 1 is one of the hardest games ever to get to 100% completion!  :o

About Crash 1, I'm in the same boat as you. That game is hard! :o

I just got it for the first time near the beginning of this year and I haven't completed it yet. I really don't care either because I feel it is inferior to CB2 and 3. The difficulty is just a little too much, even at the beginning of the game. Just my two cents.

I haven't played Crash 1 in a long long long time. It must have been 10 years since I have played it. But I still remember how hard some of those freaking levels were. Toxic Waste, Slippery Climb, Sunset Vista, and those damn bridge levels were so hard. And the worst part was that you couldn't die in the level in order to get the gems.

I agree, I liked Crash 2 and Crash 3 better. Crash 3 was the best though and I loved the different time period places (China, Medieval, Egypt, etc.) and all of the abilities they gave Crash are fun. I have to play to go back and play 3 again.  :mrred:

I never really play games with anyone, but CB2 was so much fun to play with my step-sisters. I hated dying and passing my turn to the next player. :roll:

Good times, good times. Great game too, as is CB3. I loved the idea of playing as a new character as well (Coco). That was a neat feature.

The Legend of Zelda. Other than that, if you've seen the Pokemon topic......
Favourite Team: Red Jaguars
Favourite Episode: The Jewel-Encrusted Egg of Catherine the Great, tied with the Mussel Shell Armor of Apanuugpak and the Lost Hornpipe of the Pirate Captain
Favourite Season: Season 3

When artists like LMFAO, Ke$ha, Taylor Swift, Carly Rae Jespen and Justin Bieber and songs like "Party Rock Anthem", "Call Me Maybe", "Thrift Shop" and others are succeeding in today's music industry and about 99% of the world is buying their shit and any argument you make is followed by nonsense from these people, you would wish the world had ended on 21st December 2012.

The Legend of Zelda is probably the best choice for favorite Video Game Series, but only by a hair.
