My overall favorites would have to be..
1: Metal Gear Solid, unbelievable series. I in all honesty care more about certain characters in this series than people I know in real life. Mesmirizing from start to finish.

2: Mass effect, I had ignored the series until roughly 8 months ago. I had a copy of Mass effect 1 on xbox from a friend, and never played it. My bestfriend convinced me to and WOW! Fell in love with the series and the characters. The ending to 3 in all honesty made me cry my eyes out. I was literally depressed for a few days. It was like losing a bestfriend. All in all, a unforgettable series.

3: Sly cooper: Got the first when I was younger. Thought the gameplay was pretty fun, soon followed with Band of Thieves and Honor among Thieves. Was chomping at the bit when I heard of Thieves in time. Was a bit worried about a new company handling it, but all my worries were blown away when I played it. My only complaint? Still getting used to the difference in detail on the character models. Last time we saw them was on a ps2 with alright graphics at the time. This series will always hold a special place in my heart.

4: Resident evil. I'll admit, 6 wasn't amazing. But it was good. 5 was probably the most fun co-op experience, and actually introduced me to a friend over xbox, who's now my closest friend, who'm I now consider family. The series has brought me unprecedented happiness and fun over the years. I may not entirely like the new direction of the series, but that doesn't change the amount of fun I had with it, specifically 2 and 4, which are two of my favorite games of all time.

Last, but not least.
5: Oddworld. I absolutely love the series. Despite all the numerous "WHAT THE ***********************" Bombs dropped over my maaany deaths in the "Abe" games, it's crazy fun. I hope and pray JustAddWater will make another Abe game. The mudokons, other than maybe the krogan, are my favorite in-game species. They may look unbelievably ugly, but are just adorable and hilarious. First time playing exoddus, i accidently smacked one of the depressed workers, as he hit himself in the head with a rock and killed himself while making a "eh eh eh eh" sound, I couldn't stop laughing. The way they sound and how unexpected it was, was probably the funniest moment in gaming for me.

Anyway, ending my wall of text. What's your top 5 favorite game series and why?

5 - Silent Hill series

Silent Hill 1 and 2 were both amazing games but I found the series went downhill sharply after 3.

4 - Metal Gear Solid series

I enjoyed the series in general although I'm not that good at stealth games. Many great moments throughout the series.

3 - Gran Turismo series

Great games. I think GT5 is the best racing game I have ever played.

2 - Uncharted series

Some of the best games I have ever played. The first game is my favourite in the series.

1 - Elder Scrolls series

Oblivion and Skyrim are simply stunning. I have spent months on these games.
