About Us


Hello there! I’m Wally and I loved games since I was a wee little lad, watching my mom play Tetris on the NES so many moons ago.

That one moment helped define a live long love of video games, which inspired me to create this website to celebrate the awesomeness of games.


Bucket List Games is where I share my love of games in an easy-to understand manner.

My goal is to show you the very best games you should be playing that you might have passed on or might have missed.

I love all kinds of games

I play games on Nintendo consoles, Steam PC, and through the Xbox Game Pass PC service.

This is why Bucket List Games will primarily focus on Nintendo and Nintendo Switch, Steam computer, Xbox Game Pass PC, Windows 10, and mobile games and related content.

Of course, games from other platforms such as PlayStation consoles will definitely make it on Top Games Lists along with the Bucket List itself.

If you don’t know what the Bucket List is, it is the go-to list of every game you must play in your life.
