I'm not asking what game is the best. I'm asking what game would you play first, be it for the first time, or just to revisit some old(better?) times?Games linked below with awesome words.
- Pinnacle of old tyme RTS
- Crazy futuristic Japanese story-telling
- Chemistry in vidya games
- Tank Controls ftw!!
- Epic orgins
- Forgotten Realms
- A 2nd Fallout?!
- The last of the adventure games?
I wasn't as informed on video games then as I am today so I played different stuff and I have different memories than most gamers. Here are the top games I'd honestly like to go back and play or would have been playing back in 1998... all N64 games.
4. Mario Party
2. Vigilante 8
1. Star Wars Rogue Squadron
I was a total fucking Star Wars nut back then and I played the shit out of Rogue Squadron. I know that game only had like 12 missions, but to this day I remember playing them over and over. Seriously I probably put as much time into this game as I did Oblivion or Fallout 3.
" @CoolDrMoney said:Ahh, that's much better, you unfuckI should've made that last option - other. specify how I fucked up in comment.
" Banjo Kazooie you fuck "
I knew I forgot a couple:
Which would I choose to play today? Grim Fandango. It's probably the only one on that list that hasn't been improved upon in its genre.
Rainbow Six came out in '98 and that was incredible. Somebody should bring back that Kit-Out / Plan / Execute structure - I loved that. The end of ME2 kinda reminded me of that a little bit.
" I'm gonna go for a game I loved as a 10 year old - Theif. Even though I loved OoT very much too. "Man, I felt like a smarty-pants when I played Thief in college. You must have been one patient 10 year old.
Thief is pretty much my favorite game of all time. I've never felt as immersed and like I was truly in another place than this game. It also spoiled me on stealth - pretty much any game that has a radar or is in 3rd person is cheating compared to Thief. The way you tell if someone (or something... ) is coming is that you sit and listen, or peek quickly around a corner. And the atmosphere is amazing.
I can't believe you missed out both Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped AND Pokemon Red/Blue. Although I'm actually kinda glad you missed them out - now I can just click "Other" and be happy with my decision. Those are two of my favourite games of all time and I'd never be able to choose between the two.
Only one of these games was dynamic enough to accomodate me as my gaming tastes matured and evolved.. Starcraft! From playing it as a 12 year old enjoying cheating against coms with nukes, to being a 20 year old freshman competing against Koreans on WGT (and failing for the most part), we've seen some great times together.
Wow, I forgot how many excellent games came out in 1998.
Tough choice - also compared to what I played then and what I would choose now in 2011.
Radiant Silvergun also came out! (Now I haven't played it myself yet, but I hear people like it. Waiting patiently for the XBLA release! :)
Here's a somewhat full list from Wikipedia:
