Witcher 3

Great combat, deep systems, various ways to play, a TON of content that’s all good to great, and a great story. On top of that, the 4k/HDR/performance updates make landscape in that game look like works of art. Plus, the two DLC quests they released are outstanding, to boot. Also, Gwent is some shit!

I think it’s the biggest game I’ve played that’s consistently good and pretty much filler-free.

EDIT: And the enemies/missions don’t scale. Screw scaling...

Metal Gear Solid 3. It was the first game to captivate me with story and provide me with emergent gameplay where if I wanted to do something, i generally could. I played that game over at least 10 times back to back, and still play through the whole series (minus v) once a year. I think RDR2 might be there now, need time to digest it though.

It's a really tough question because this is a really in the moment feeling and retrospection always serves to make you think "Well but was it really".

Planescape: Torment. Probably.

My best game of all time may shift depending on my mood but I'll have to say Ocarina of Time. Granted I played it as a kid but nothing transfixed me so much as this odd "open world" game with so many dungeons to explore and secrets to find. It felt like there was always something beyond the boundaries of the explorable space.

3 way split between Fallout 2, Resident Evil 4, and Metal Gear Solid.

Depending on my mood, I could put CoD4 multiplayer, RE Reamke, or GTA Vice City.

Super Mario Galaxy. A game so joyous, fantastic to play and just pure fun incarnate that it reignited my love of gaming in a time when I mainly played out of obligation because I had games lying around. Still hasn't been topped by anything and I can still recite a good chunk of its soundtrack from memory.

Steambot Chronicles on the PS2.

A game that would find a huge audience in the internet culture of 2018 in the way Yakuza and Persona did, but never got a chance.

I love the fuck out of the world, gameplay, characters, and general comfy feel-good vibes of this hybrid mech-action RPG/rhythm game. It also is fully English voice acting extending to the plentiful sung music tracks, some which remain in my head to this day. It's a fantastic translation by Atlus as well, and I will always champion in as a exceptional game that never got to its audience,

Kerbal Space Program. This game sucked me in a way that no other game has. Once I landed on the Mun for the first time I was hooked. It was such a struggle and took a ton of trial and error. Once I had one of my Kerbals on the Mun I realized he was stranded there! Then the process of a rescue mission begun. It's a game that I had to force myself to stop playing because I was spending 6-8 hours a day playing it. I haven't gone back yet but I often think of my Kerbals stuck orbiting Duna!

Symphony of the Night is the one I always think of when I think of my favorite games, but Breath of the Wild is really close.
