Games That Have Defined My Life

Maybe not the best, maybe not the best known, but the games that made me the gamer that I am today.

Great list. I think I'll have to steal this idea for my next list.

Yeah, I remember MK 2 blowing me away.  I really loved the backgrounds for that one, and the fighting felt raw AND hilarious.  BG actually got BETTER with age for me, when I started to appreciate just how many alternate paths they assumed the player would make.  Lost of dialogue and encounters only get discovered through multiple playthroughs.

Awesome list! Really interesting... I feel exactly the the way you describe about SSX, FFX and Morrowind. You've inspired me to dig up my old copy of Baldur's Gate and install it again. I never really got into it but I agree with all your other choices so I hope I'll get as hooked as you did... Great list mate!

Nice list... Did you ever complete the Bards Tale 1? I always ended up giving up when I got lost in Kylearans Tower - after defeating Mangar, and the Castle...
I would still piss myself laughing today, if I played this again and took my Uber high level, Dragon Slaying, Catacombs defeating, battle hardened warriors into a house... Only to be presented with the message, ' You face death itself in the form of... 1 Kobold."   >_<

@smokemare:   Yes, I did complete it, probably about half-a-dozen times.  We didn't have a ton of games for the Apple, so I wound up playing it a few times.  I don't know that I ever finished BT2, though.

Save a few titles, this list would be mine as well!

I am quite prone to SF4 nerd rage as well :p
