Gears of War 3 (XBOX 360)
Mario Kart 64 (N64)
Golden Eye (N64)
PES (Pro Evo Soccer) 5 (PS2)
Toejam & Earl (Megadrive)
Mega Bomberman (Megadrive)
WCW vs NWO Revenge (N64)
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (Megadrive)
Sega Rally (Saturn)
Medal of Honor Frontline (Gamecube)
Call of Duty 3 (XBOX360)
Advance Wars (GBA)
Mario 64 (N64)
Mario Bros 3 (NES)
Mario Odyssey (Switch)
Soldier of Fortune (PC)
TMNT Hyperstone Heist (Megadrive)
X-Men: COTA (Saturn)
Zelda: OOT (N64)

There are games above where I also love other games in the series (i.e. other Gears of War, or other PES games) but just kept it to my favourite of the series to make it more interesting. Although there are some different Mario performers in there, but I like to think they're different enough to each put in on their own merits.

Will have a further think about it tonight and probably edit this post tomorrow to add others I've remembered.
You got some good games there. Also PES 5 was awesome back in the day, man! As was PES 6. I played some PES 5 and PES 6 a bit last year and I noticed both aged rather well.

PES 5 to me was Arsenal. In PES 6, my team(Benfica) was a bit too well rated, but ofc I didn't mind it. Plus once I bought Eusébio(named Elcherino in the game) it'd get even stronger. Good times tearing **** up in the Master League with him and Nuno Gomes as my striker duo

Yeah I wasn't sure whether to put PES 4 or 5 on the list. I Google imaged the covers and went with 5 from memory, but they were both amazing. I have bad memories of PES6 as I got it on the XBOX360 and it was really clunky and not at all fluid.

I never really played the master league, I had a friend who lived about 5 doors down who would come round to my house about 4-5 times a week and we would just play PES matches for hours. Those were the good days!

Since PES6 they went downhill and I haven't played one for years. And couldn't bring myself to switch to FIFA after the perfection of PES4 and 5. As you said they have aged well I might have to crack the PS2 open again and give them a whirl!

The Master league was a pretty great mode back then. FIFA at the time offered nothing like it. Not even FIFA 2004's and FIFA 2005's career modes felt as immersive. Ofc ML was a bit less realistic as far as league organisation went due to the limited amount of teams in PES game.s back then, the amount of teams and licenses were pretty much the only advantages FIFA had over PES. In FIFA 2004 and 2005 it felt like player stats didn't matter much and that you could easily score from the midfield. Good luck ding that in OES back then.

I've been told the Master League in PES nowadays hasn't changed at all. Also, apparently EA was able to hire some of the developers who used to work on PES. I guess that explains why people suddenly were rating FIFA above PES from about 2007 on.

It's funny how Konami, a Japanese Konami, has made some pretty good football games. Japan isn't particularly known for being great at football.

Daytona USA and Sega Rally were both fun in the 90s. I've played them a few times on Arcades.

I own the Daytona USA Championship Circuit Edition for the Saturn. Looking back, I can't believe I played that game a ton when I was a kid.
