I thought about this a lot when I got the HD collection, because the way the games appear on the first disc seemed to be chronological, but was advised by a friend more familiar with the series to stick to the way they were released. I would absolutely agree with this sentiment as the series has a tendency to reboot, or at lest reinterpret, the events of previous games with each new addition.

For example; even though Peace Walker is set many decades prior to MGS4, there are things brought to light in 4 that Peace Walker takes as assumed knowledge.

Fire Emblem: Awakening.

I restarted that game on three separate occasions to try and get my children right. By that third playthrough my kids were so insanely overpowered that the last few missions were a cakewalk, which worked out well because I was pretty damn sick of Fire Emblem.

@frostyryan: Damn, I really wish this thread was a poll so I could see the pooling results. Great concept!

I see a lot of people going after free to play, mobas, and sports games so I'm gonna go with Rail Shooters! Was there ever a really good one? I mean, time crisis was ok (in arcades) but mostly for the novelty of holding a plastic gun.

Thank You, Patrick. Thank you for all you have brought to the site and to this community. It is sad to see you go, but I hope you are excited for the next phase. Your presence will be missed.

Thank You, Scoops!

Probably Predator, though I will gladly listen to arguments for Die Hard or Aliens.

I have fond childhood memories of Sonic 1, 2, and Sonic Chaos but after that things get shaky. In recent years I have revisited those early Master System Sonic games and Jeff is 100% correct, they don't play. Those games are way too thin to really be enjoyable anymore.

I barely have time to finish the games I love, so if I'm not feeling a game then I won't bang my head against it.

I was all ready to watch this trailer stoic and reserved and fully embodying a mentality of "Don't get swept up in the hype".

But then a I saw Oscar Isaac sitting in a fucking X-Wing, wearing the uniform, with that familiar sound of engines whirring and I LOST MY SHIT!

Also, I need to watch Attack the Block one of these days...

Attack the Block is so good.

So good!

John Boyega out-acted the entire prequel trilogy cast without saying a word.

Word!

@stealthmaster86: Agreed! It was really annoying to watch each season up to the movie and then have to go to some means to track the movie down. Still worth it though.
