Changed gaming for good in 1998. I knew I was getting it for Christmas, but rented it anyway. Had to force myself to stop playing before the 2nd disc so I wouldn't ruin Christmas.
The very first video game I ever played.
One of the all-time great games. This is the game that introduced me to the 16-Bit Era.
I got this game for free from Sega of America. When my parents got me a Sega Genesis in 1992, Sega had a deal going where if you bought the Genesis (which was already coming with Sonic 1 as a pack-in) you could get Sonic 2 for free in the mail. One of the best deals ever. My grandma was watching me n' my brother at the time and I remember trying to sneak upstairs to try and test out the game.
For one reason or another, I didn't pay attention to this when it came out. After I played and beat Duke Nukem Forever, I looked more into Gearbox. I also remember seeing a Borderlands mask hidden in DNF. I finally tried the game and all I can wonder is why in the hell I didn't play it sooner.
My very first PlayStation 2 game. Pretty memorable and fun take on what I saw as an extension of Resident Evil gameplay. I enjoyed the next two sequels a lot.
More great Onimusha action. I liked the first game's hero a lot more for some reason.
Great game. I love the gameplay and setting of the Onimusha games. This series needs to come back in a big way.
The most unique beat 'em up ever. Really creative idea and setting. An HD re-make would be phenomenal.
Off-beat, unique and one of the best Sega Genesis games ever.
Love this game. Great music, controls and fast-paced, arcade action. One of the best sports games for the SNES.
A classic. I drew Bo Jackson on the back of a test once in first grade and got in trouble for it. My Dad beat this game with his favorite team, the NY Giants. Lawrence Taylor was a beast.
My very first PlayStation 1 game. Never was any good at it, but I loved the graphics and music. I would put the game CD in a stereo to listen to once in a while. The intro movie was mesmerizing at the time. Namco was very good at those.
The Tanker section is one of the best parts of any game ever made. Somehow, I feel this game has gotten even better over the years.
Bought from FuncoLand around the time MGS came out for the PS1. Bought another copy for some reason at the same store and years later would give one to a friend, so he had something for Kojima to sign when we met him at a NYC signing.
Huge disappointment considering how well-made the MGS HD collection was and also the fact that I love the Silent Hill games, mainly 1 - 4.
Went to the Toys 'R' Us on Rt. 440 in Jersey City, NJ to get this in preparation for Resident Evil 2. My Mom took my brother and I and the guy who brought you the game (after paying for it at the register, you would bring your ticket to a booth that had tons of games) warned my Mom that there was blood in the game.
She said she didn't care.
Such an important game not just for the series but for the medium as well.
