I usually spend a lot of time defending this answer, and therefore don't always participate in these discussions, but Final Fantasy VIII. I know it doesn't have the best mechanics or narrative of the Final Fantasy series, but it just hit me at a place and time in my life where it was exactly what I needed to experience right then. And every time I go back to it, I don't see the flaws that everyone is so quick to point out - I just see everything I love about it.
I've been gaming ever sinceI was 4, and my older brother needed somebody to play Combat with on his Atari, so that'll be 24 years now. My gaming habit is old almost enough to save money on car insurance.
Also, it was a bitter fight between FF8, Beyond Good & Evil, and Solar Jetman. I probably don't need to tell you why Beyond Good & Evil is in my top three, and Solar Jetman on the NES is basically why I still play video games.
Yep, Super Mario World. Nostalgia, of course, plays into this fairly heavily. 23 years give or take.
Same, but I don't think nostalgia is as much of a factor for me. The controls are so tight and it's a game I can come back to again and again. I've been gaming for ~20 years.
Yeah. It's just something you feel as you're playing a game. I played Persona 4 Golden last year (never having played a game in the series) and it was just an experience unlike any other. If I hadn't played that, The Last of Us would have been my favorite of all time.
I've been playing for about 20 years.
Jak 2. I mean i'd definitely argue plenty of games being far BETTER, but that game just has such a special place in my heart. There's something about the combination of the tight controls, the compelling world, the fluidity of the gameplay and just a heaping helping of nostalgia that makes that game a damn stew of love for me.
Been gaming since I was fairly young, so around 15 years seems about right for how long exactly.
Once I decide on a favorite game "of all time", I'm not leaving myself open for any game that might come after it and surpass it.
And that's all I want, really. I want games to keep raising the bar and impressing me, improving on themselves until I either die or at least become too hard of sight/hearing/my hands become too shaky to keep playing.
I'm between a few right now. Depending on my mood, I would consider any one of these as "my favorite game of all time"
- Super Mario All-Stars (SNES pack in version with Super Mario World)
- Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 (SNES version)
- Resident Evil 4 (Gamecube version)
- Resident Evil Remake (Gamecube)
- Delta Force: Black Hawk Down (PC)
- Fallout 2
- Uncharted 2
- Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (PS2 version)
- Deus Ex (PC version)
I've been gaming since I was 3, so about 20 years now give or take.
Edit: For some reason I'm posting double messages on the the site today. Sorry if it gets posted twice.
30, been playing games for probably 26-27 of those.
Favorite game of all time, if I had to answer, is Super Mario Bros. 2. It's really hard though. Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening almost usurps the spot, but I can always go back to SMB2 and have just as much fun with it as I did when I was younger.
Also, Peach FTW.
Halo 2. A lot of great memories with that game and it will undoubtedly hold up well in the times ahead due to it popularizing many shooter conventions we are used to these days.
I don't know how long I've been playing games. I'll just say ten years because I seriously got into them with the original Xbox.
Have many favs so no ... and I´ve probably been playing for around 26-27 years ... Im 31 so Im sure I didnt play for my first 3 years but in my house there was an intellevision before I was born.
But the one game I keep playing every year and multiple times is Half Life 2 ... so maybe Half Life 2
