One Life Left

Definitely the UK's favourite radio show (sort of) about videogames.


Commissioned by London’s award-winning Resonance 104.4 FM in early 2006, One Life Left was only meant to run for six episodes.

Take that, The Man because now, somewhere around one hundred and fifty episodes later, it’s in its seventh season and grown from humbling, terrified, fumbling beginnings into one of the station’s most valued shows.

Take THAT, The Man. Also take that, British radio standards.

OLL top 100 games of all time final few..

The tension mounts as we near the no.1 spot! (Are you sure about that? – Everyone)

10 Half-Life 2
9 Metroid Prime
8 Super Mario Galaxy
7 Final FantasyVII
6 Monkey Island games

The final 5 will soon be revealed! What will they be?

Well No. 5 is Sensible Soccer!

Which is several Sensies mixed together of course but it all counts. Naturally the single button Amiga version was best. Definitely the best football game of all time ever!

No.4 is Katamari Damacy

Which had the honor of featuring in my very first Free Market Economy. I just went for the first one to cover them all as they are all pretty much exactly the same. Minor tweaks between them don’t make it worth biasing the vote one way or the other. Lovely to look at, awesome soundtrack, great fun to play, fully deserving of this high position.

No.3 is The Legend of Zelda :Ocarina of Time

There were lots of Zeldas voted for. Very few of you agreed on the title of this one though. There were just so many variations. Zelda: Occarina, TLOZ:OOT, The Legend of Zelda: Occarina etc.. It’s totally boring it being here of course. So terribly predictable. I kind of liked it at the time but somehow in time the memory of it has been tarnished by the likes of Dynasty Warriors being completely brilliant. Still I suppose it was a pretty impressive adventure. If you like that sort of thing. Probably worth 7/10.

No. 2 is Goldeneye

The best FPS ever and about the only one I’ve ever been able to play. The bunker level with pistols and one shot kills, no auto aim is the only honourable way to play the game. If only there weren’t complicated legal issues stopping it being remade. But then maybe something this wonderful deserves to be just preserved as it is.

And finally the best game of all time ever is….

SUPER MARIO 64!

Boooring.
