Games certain people always want me to play.

I don't get a lot of recommendations for games to do, but when I do, it seems that people REALLY want me to play this game. These are the games people won't shut up about. Hell, I'll even list the people who keep pushing the games on me :P. I'll add more as people keep pestering me.

For some reason, I'm noticing that a lot of them are either PC games or games that might as well be on the PC. A sign that I should get into PC gaming, perhaps?

Wow, I've played none of these.
 
Although I think Policenauts featured some music I heard once on YT.

Same here, which is why this list exists in the first place.

And it will be a long time until you get that blog.

I'm trying to think of games that could get me on this list, but I'm pretty sure you don't want to play C64 games and your console repertoire is unmatched.

Plus 0% of your comments are "you should do a blog on Garou: Mark of the Wolves." (Oh, and before you think about pestering me about that, keep in mind that I plan on playing that game soon.)

You should play Mark of the Wolves. As far as 2D fighters go, it's pretty rad, basically SNK's answer to Street Fighter III. Not very good at it though.
 
But yes, you should play X-COM and Heroes III. And I will never stop recommending either.

I'd do it right now, but I discovered Hexic on my Xbox 360. I beat it rather quickly.

Deja Vu sucks and is incredibly hard. took me awhile to beat it. Shadowgate is a lot better

I'm still going to play it, just so I can clear out this list, one day.

@Video_Game_King: easiest way to complete it is to shoot yourself in the face....use gun on self.

Actually, that looks pretty cool. I'm going to play this game soon. Not now, since I have to deal with other games.

@Video_Game_King: Its not that good....play Shadowgate instead, better game....or Uninvited....all of them have the same basic layout.

Given that they're part of a trilogy, I'd have to play it, eventually, unless it's at the end of the saga.

@Video_Game_King: They have the same gameplay but their stories and scenery are completely different.

Play Chrono Cross.

You really want to regain that real estate, don't you? You'll have to do a lot more than tell me once, along with informing me on your progress.

You should definitely play Chrono Cross. It's fantastic, assuming it being nothing at all like Chrono Trigger doesn't bother you.

I'll add it once you and StarFoxA double team me.
Posted by StarFoxA

@Video_Game_King: You should play Chrono Cross. The gameplay doesn't quite hold up to Chrono Trigger, but it's a beautiful game both aesthetically and musically. Yasunori Mitsuda is a friggin' genius with that soundtrack. So good.

Well, fuck. Guess I have to keep my word. It's gonna be a long time, though, because I still have to beat Tear Ring Saga. I haven't played that in a while, and that's mostly because Steam has a ton of games for me to beat.
Posted by StarFoxA

Speaking of Steam, you should check out Puzzle Agent!

Kind of an odd thing to say, given the context and everything. I'd add it to the list, but I'm just gonna wait for somebody to gift it to me :P.
Posted by StarFoxA

Pffft... gifting. Just pick it up during a Steam sale. There'll probably be a big one during Thanksgiving/Black Friday and another one this winter.
