Halo 3 - Multiplayer... good times.
Runescape - I met so many people and spent over 150 hours on multiple accounts.
Pokemon Yellow - My first ever game.
GTA: San Andreas - This was the first game I bought of this type and I loved it.
RE4 - It was my first rated M game and I was kind of shaky playing it through the first time but I quickly fell in love.
"expletive said:yeah i was trying to think of some other older ones( because there are a lot of older games that i love) , but i guess these were the ones that were on my brain at the time"heres mine:Wow, mostly modern games?Halo 3MGS4Sonic AdventureGTA IVAssassins Creed"
Anyway its hard to say just five but here goes:
- Donkey Kong 64
- Shadows of the Empire
- Heroes of Might and Magic 3
- No One Lives Forever
It's amazing how many people are listing almost entirely Nintendo titles. I guess most of us spent our formative days playing Nintendo.
DDR Extreme - First rhythm game I really got into. Looking back it sucked but it's the game that got me into that genre, which I adore. It also got me good at DDR which got me laid on less than one occasion
Super Mario 64 - My brother, dad, and I spent so much time playing this. We spent three months getting the 70 stars to save Peach. It was that perfect difficulty level for someone six years old and his two cohorts who were all video game virgins.
Super Smash Brothers Melee - Wow. Most amazing fighting game ever, I'll tell you what. It combined the simplicity of the original with a cast that more than doubled in size (sure, it was
just one over twice as much, but come on). I remember working on a paper about Cyrano de Bergerac in the seventh grade with this game playing in the background. I think someone was Mewtwo on the Fourside stage. Whatever.
Pokemon Blue - Sure, I'm not much of a fan anymore, but this game consumed my youth. I remember seeing that it cost $50 at Toys 'r' Us. Something about it just made me happy. I couldn't figure out what it is, but this game had a way about it that just put me at ease. I never really got into link battling, even though I remember being annoyed by people calling the Link Cable a "cable cord." Now that I know a bit more about video games, I recognize how amazing the use of cartridge space is in this game. Each of the 151 monsters has a front-facing and back-facing sprite, a list of attacks, and a list of stats, not to mention the relatively huge game world and all the music, text, and art that had to go into this game. If I had to program this, I don't know if I'd be able to fit it all in half a meg.
Sonic Adventure 2 Battle - Say what you will, my brother and I loved the crap out of this game. We knew how horrible the voice acting, script, story, and lyrics were, but that only gave the game its charm. "TERIAAAH" is still an in-joke between us, and we haven't played this game since half our lives ago.
Honorable mention: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3, if only for leaving the game world and putting on the infinite grind cheat and leaving the game on overnight with Kelly Slater going in circles. If it had to kick one game out, I'd probably pick Pokemon, but I won't <3
Grand Theft Auto III - I know Liberty City better than I know my hometown.
"Grand Theft Auto III - I know Liberty City better than I know my hometown."wut
Secret of Mana
Final Fantasy VI
Street Fighter Alpha 2
Ace Combat 4 : Shattered Skies
Ace Combat 4 was one of the first games in which I completed absolutely everything; All S rank's in all difficulties, all aircraft/weapons purchased etc.
It was also one of the last games that I completed everything in...
must be getting old or something
"It's amazing how many people are listing almost entirely Nintendo titles. I guess most of us spent our formative days playing Nintendo."That's an interesting observation. Even though I only chose 2 from Nintendo, I guess it would be because if we started in the early ninetys that's where you went for the most part. To Nintendo. Sure there was a Genesis, but I know from personal experience, I think only one of my friends at the time had one. Rest of us had Nintendo SNES and then N64's.
GoldenEye 007 - My brother got it for his birthday and I almost gave up on the first level, but I eventually figured out the controls and loved it.
Zelda: A Link to the Past - My first Zelda game. Came bundled with the SNES I got for Christmas when I was 5.
Zelda: Ocarina of Time - Didn't even know it existed until I saw it at a movie rental store. I just thought that I loved ALTTP, so I should check it out. You can guess how I felt after I started playing it :p
Pokemon Gold and Silver - Like every kid who played Red and Blue, I couldn't wait for this game to come out and I thought my head was going to pop when I came home and saw Silver on the table. I think every spare moment of my time went into that game or talking about it for months afterward. Good memories with those games.
Resident Evil 4 - Played the demo and one Saturday a couple weeks later, I woke up and went straight to GameStop and bought it. I remember that day like it was yesterday.
There are many others, but these are ones that give me some really good memories.
Pokemon Fire Red: I played this game with my siblings and friends all the time. It was that rivalry and competitiveness that will make me remember this game forever.
Metal Gear Solid - The atmosphere, the cinematic nature, the fact that I kept on dying because I wasn't aware of the concept of 'Stealth'...
Halo - Again, It was like being in some awesome epic Sci-Fi film. Kicked ass.
Frogger - I had a mini-cabinet of this game that I played over and over and over. My high scores were insane.
Pokemon - In the late 90s, which kid didn't have either a red or blue cart as their summer love?
Yoshi's Island - The first time I played this game, the visual style instantly struck me. I still remember the feeling I got playing that game, and that was 15 years ago.
