Adam, from eGamer, writes: "The greatest thing about games for me is not merely the notion of escapism. Yet more specifically, I love the life changing and emotional cathartic quality of games. You know, that feeling you get when a game has left an impression upon you, or your outlook on life in some way. In other words, games as mechanisms that can influence your perception in many ways. Of course, this doesn’t mean a life altering event that changed you entirely as a person. However, I’m more interested in how a game affected you and how it affected your perception of the world around you in any number of ways. I’m talking about games that essentially cause the smallest of emotional responses and made you think about things more intensely than any other game. So here it goes, in no particular order, a list of games that have left a great impression on me as a gamer".
