Diablo 3 launcher stuck on updating setup files

I’ve played 40-minute games that felt like they lasted five, and once came very near to missing a redeye flight because I didn’t want to walk away from a hot Galaga streak in an airport arcade.You really do have to play Galaga on arcade hardware to get the full experience.

Sure, in retrospect, better RPGs came before it (Chrono Trigger), and better RPGs have come after it (Persona 5), but the depth in which FFVII resonated with me at the time was unparalleled.

Growing up primarily on consoles, Final Fantasy VII showed me just how vast, sprawling, and emotional video game adventures could be.

Which made putting together this list of the Top 100 Video Games of All Time such a daunting, but ultimately rewarding experience.

There’s no limit to the amount of games that we’ve loved booting up and getting completely immersed in, but that doesn’t quite cut it for this list.

There are few games I remember playing for the first time as vividly as Final Fantasy VII.

After an opening cinematic that absolutely melted my brain, I watched slack-jawed as a soldier named Cloud and his Avalanche buddies leapt off a train and embarked on their grand adventure through Midgar and beyond.

As you can imagine, those discussions were a lot of fun.

Games, like all art, are a product of the era in which they were created.

Regardless of which side you rooted for, Warcraft II’s campaign fell into a perfect groove of pacing that built you up from a know-nothing strategist, and by the end of the campaign I felt like a supreme commander that was able to match wits with the AI.
