Everyone has a game or series of games that they love above all others. A while back, a few of my fellow editors wrote articles proclaiming their favorites. I love talking about the games I love, so this was an idea I wanted to jump in on. But I couldn't decide what my absolute favorite game was.
It took almost a year, but now I've finally figured it out.
A little game called Cave Story was released for WiiWare this week. I first played the PC version years and years ago, but ever since this new version was announced, I haven't touched it because I wanted the experience to feel brand new all over again.
While I've always talked very highly of it (my first avatar as an editor was an image of the character Momorin), it wasn't until I sat down with it this week that I realized... this is it. My favorite game is Cave Story.
So: Jim. Chad. I'm sorry, but you're wrong. Cave Story is the greatest videogame ever*.
