I played this game since it was in beta. I've spent more hours of my life in Paragon City than I've probably spent in every other video game, combined. It was ton of fun, the most player-friendly MMO I've ever seen, with no emphasis on loot, raids, or grinding. Just flying around and kicking ass with superpowers.
It's gone now, and there's nothing else like it to fill it's place. I hope some day either it returns, or someone makes a spiritual sequel. But I'm afraid it's probably just lost forever.
The first game I owned, the first game I beat, and the game I always come back to. Some people may say it's inferior to Super Mario World, as far as the 2D Marios go, but I can never get enough of this game.
I've probably bought it every time it's been rereleased on any platform. I might have a problem.
I tried to pick just one version of The Sims to pin down as my favorite, but really, it's just the franchise as a whole. I never stick with The Sims for long, but it's something familiar and calming that I can always return to every few years. Sims 2 got the most play out of me, but I enjoyed 1 and 3 a ton too. All three games have had their own share of problems(especially 3), and the sheer volume of expansions is kind of overwhelming, but there's no denying that The Sims is a series I hold dear to my heart, and likely always will.
Team Fortress 2 has something no other shooter these days cares about: personality. Not just in it's characters(who are great), but in it's weapons, it's visual style, it's map design. Even the game's official blog oozes humor and flavor. It's no surprise that this game is still going strong after so many years, and though it's certainly starting to show it's age, I hope Valve continues to support it until it's just no longer viable to do so.
