1. Shadow of the Colossus - Like playing a painting simply. I wish I could wipe my memory clean of this and play afresh

2. Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn - Responsible for helping me to construct the greatest character to roleplay I have ever had in gaming

3. Metal Gear Solid - As a child helped introduce several extrastential concepts to me in admittedly its own crazy nonsensical way which honestly I can say is one of the things responsible for me diving into learning philosophy and more importantly discussing it.

1. Elder Scrolls Morrowind-my first TES game and first open world rpg so it has a special place in my memory.Out of all the recent three TES games id say this one was the best for its complexity (a plus in my book) and its true open ended-ness (the game gave you very little explicit direction).

2. World of Warcraft- I only had this game for two months....but that was only because i realized that WoW had a very unhealthy effect on me. I would wake up at 10am, play until 4pm, write a few lines for my paper until a pathetic 430pm, then play from 5 until about 4am....I was hooked to say the least.

3. Sacred 2 Fallen Angel- The B-movie of online RPGs, i found this game to be very addictive since alot of my friends on Live played it all day and night,and i wanted to compete with them. I actually have two characters on the leaderboards for xbox (one at around 88-a tank Shadow Warrior and one at the 33rd spot-a DPS Shadow Warrior) though ive switched out my xbox and rebought the game so those old characters probably went down in rank. This is the only game out of the three that i still play to death (even played all night last night lol)

In no particular order.

Battlefield 3 - The best multi player shooter I have ever played succeeding Battlefield 2 for me, the combination of excellent Infantry and Vehichle combat held together with squad play, giant maps and an intense war feel.

Half Life 2 - I was completely taken in by this cold, unique world and fell in love with the impactful combat, characters and sense of mystery.

KOTOR - I spent 7 hours on the first world alone, I went in thinking this would be an action game (I had only played 2 RPG's before this) but my initial dissapointment in discovering it's combat mechanics turned to joy as I delved into this new style of thoughtful play, character stories and the grandiose scope of the galaxy and story.

I was just thinking about this! For me currently it would be:

3. Tetris DS

Planescape, Baldur's Gate II, and The Longest Journey.

I feel the third is subject to change at any point where I remember other things I really, really like but those first two are locked in.

It was incredibly difficult limiting this list to just three. There's quite a few older games that I hold in high regard and even some modern ones, but overall I'm pretty pleased with the ones I chose.

Alright, updated my list on the first page.

Basically, I have substituted System Shock 2 for Binding of Isaac.

1. Persona 4 - This one is hands down my favorite game. I love it from the beginning to the end, and it made good some faults of Persona 3, which was already a great game.

2. Shadow of the Colossus - Great, great game. It's atmospheric and a different adventure from all of the others. Bringing down a giant, after minutes trying to discover how to get on them may be one of the best senses of accomplishment that I've felt playing videogames.

3. Bully/Canis Canem Edit - In my opinion, the best Rockstar game. It is GTA, but in school. What more to say?

Sooo, yeah! All PS2 games. It was the system that I mostly grew up with, and still my favorite one.

1. Tomb Raider (2013)

2. Half-Life 1 (including Team Fortress Classic, Science and Industry, CS betas)

3. Fallout 2

I should replay some of those older ones. Loved a lot of the recent bioware, bethesda, square enix, and a few acti-bliz releases, but the above is a pretty good gauge for how into each release I was.

Picking just three is impossible for me. I have a group of games I love, but cannot truly rank them. Great question for the community though.

#1138 Posted by white_sox (229 posts) -

1. Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty - Fun, intense, crazy, and simply fantastic. MGS2 encompasses everything I love about video games.

2. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - I have a lot of emotional attachment to this game. It was the first game that I ever personally bought upon release, and it's one hell of an adventure. Everything about the game is so memorable, it's an experience I'll never forget.

3. Resident Evil 4 - Best action game I've ever played. It nailed both pacing and gameplay.
