MMGaming Top 50 Games – 40 to 31

Inspired by the PC Gamer Top 100 games list here is the continuation of own list of the Best Video Games Ever. MMGaming’s official Top 50 Games.

Just a quick reminder of the rules and requirements for a game to make it into the MMG Top 50: first of all, the games in our Top 50 will naturally only include those games which one of us (me or Tim) have played. They will also include games from literally any platform we’ve had access to across the ages.

In order to belong on the list the game had to more-or-less fit two separate criteria: the games would have to be something which blew us away at the time of playing it, such that it still provokes an emotional response now, but also a game which we think is still very worth playing today. As such, some games which we are trying to provide a list of games which were both brilliant at the time but also have not aged like hot garbage and so their excellence can only be explained through the lens of nostalgia.

Video Mondaily – Tim and Seb Play Rome 2

MMGaming Streams Rome II

Video Mondaily

As will hopefully become more and more clear over the coming year, I have a new computer, and this has sort of breathed a new lease of life into MMGaming. We are making plans, making videos, starting to stream with increasing regularity (both on Twitch and on Youtube) and, most importantly we are playing more games.

Well, that latter may not be true for Tim, but it is certainly true for me! As I now have a computer which can actually run games properly I am determined to make the most of it and one of the things which I was quick to jump into was Rome 2, a game I was gifted on release but which could not run on my old laptop. Well, fear not folks, because after a long wait I have finally started my campaign, and have also started a multiplayer one with Tim as well! Check after the jump!

King Arthur 2: Reviewed!

King Arthur 2 is Neocore’s latest Arthurian-flavored wargame, a sort of Total War meets Lord of the Rings.  It has everything one would expect from the franchise.  There are pitched battles where you command, potentially, thousands of troops.  There is magic, monstrous creatures to defeat or command, and role-playing bits that effect your alliances and the kinds of troops you’ll be able to command.  There are some new mechanics to explore, including a more in-depth diplomacy system, new abilities, and a technological research tree.  There are even a few slight differences, including scads of Romans and the fact that your adventures don’t seem to have much to do with King Arthur at all.  How does it all work out, then?  Check in after the bump and see for yourself!

Medieval 2: Knights of the Old World

The man is a Captain of the Geonese army and the year is 1242AD. He recently received orders to assemble a large host of men and march on the English held city of Angers. The man’s king recently allied himself with what remained of the French resistance. Together they believe they can hold back the armies of England which have taken so many of the French cities that France really doesn’t exist any more, especially as the English have recently been putting most of the money it owns into expensive Crusades to the Holy Land.
