Author "If we could ever wipe our memory of playing through video games, we would totally replay these 10 video games before anything else."
Mass Effect is a great choice - if I could remove the marketing for ME2 from my memory I'd play that one, without knowing that Shephard dies in the first few minutes. OH SHOOT SPOILERS SORRY
The thing is, if you wipe your memories, would you remember that you want to play those games?
No, but if you're a gamer, you'd likely run into them again. At least current/last gen titles.
Before you wipe your memory you write yourself a letter to play your list of games . If not you may be screwed
Metal Gear Solid Metal Gear Solid 2 Metal Gear Solid 3 Metal Gear Solid 4 Mass Effect Mass Effect 2
Bioshock sprang to mind immediately, probably the most interesting game world I've ever been in and I'd love to experience it again for the first time. Plus the twist knocked me for six.
yes the plot twist was a shocker, Bioshock one is a classic
Yeah. I had goosebumps. Not just because of the twist itself, but because how effing brilliant it’s implementation was.
That entire list is great. I agree with all of it, except I've never played The Walking Dead. I'd replace that with Star Wars KOTOR.
One of the best twists of you played a certain way!
Story driven Tlou Half life Uncharted 2 FarCry Heavy rain Metro 2033 The walking dead season 1 The last guardian Deadspace GoW 3 Notable mentions; story driven GoW Killzone 2 Journey Bioshock 1 Diablo 3 Spec ops: the line Valiants heart Resistance FOM Silent Hill F. E. A. R
Solid list. I've never played any Metroid games, but I wholeheartedly agree with many of the choices, especially TLoU, Uncharted, Mass Effect, and Bioshock. Those would all be on my list along with P4G.
Maybe Life is Strange, Until Dawn, or anything by the old Telltale developer.
FF6-10, U1-4, MGS1-4, RE1-5
Life is Strange, The Last of Us, BioShock, Silent Hill 2, Mass Effect and Portal 2 for me
1. TLOU 2. Inside New God of War Zillion Moon Patrol (arcade) Virtual On The Last Guardian Shadow of the Colossus (org) Tomb Raider (Atari 5200) Mario Bros Notable mentions (Arcade) Street Fighter (Arcade) Virtua Fighter (Arcade) Mortal Kombat (Arcade) Sega GT (Arcade) Disks of Tron Joust Dig Dug COD MW2 MP & SP Uncharted 3 SP Uncharted 4 MP Herzog Zwei
For me its Kingdom Hearts, The last of Us, Zelda (A link to the past, WInd Waker, Ocarina of time, Majora's mask) Sonic 2, Bloodborne Demon Souls Dark Souls (1 & 3) 2 was deplorable and too easy. Dragon Age 2 Metal Gear series Final Fantasy X Ni No Kuni Radiata Stories Hack. Infection Tomb Raider (1 & 2) Maaaaan I was not prepared for this question lol. That barely scratches the surface for me.
Conkers bad fur day The last of us Silent Hill 2 Ocarina of time Shadow of the colossus Doom 3 Left 4 dead Bio shock Demon Souls Half life 2 complete
Too many games too list . I would start with NES and a few Master System and Gameboy games and all the way up from there.
My ten would be in no particular order Ocarina of Time Knights of the Old Republic Mass Effect Bioshock God of War(2018) Resident Evil Shadow of the Colossus TLOU Among Theives Metal Gear Solid
great list, although I would probably swap sotc for dead space
if Bloodborne isn't on this list...
On that list only Mass Effect trilogy and Bioshock.
None, because when you played those games, it was the right time for you to play them. If you had a chance to wipe away the memories and play them again today, they very likely wouldn't have the same impact on you. Like if I was to play Shenmue for the first time ever today, I'm sure I would like it, but would it be as memorable as playing the game back in the early 2000's? Probably not.
SotC and OoT are good ones. I’d add: Halo Alan Wake MGS2 RE4
RE4 and MGS3 are good picks for me
man I would love to wipe everything halo from my mind and play the original trilogy and reach again. I remember getting halo 3, starting the game and didn't stop until I finished the game. pretty sure it's the only time I've ever completed a game in one sitting.
PSOne and 90s PC games for me.
Morrowind. While my memory was wiped, I would watch Band of Brothers.
The Witcher 3, that is it.
Dead Space Series
Why is the Uncharted series so overrated? I've played and beat all of them except Lost Legacy and I still don't get why people like them so much.
I know this might be unpopular but lost legacy is actually my favourite. I didn't play the original trilogy until last year though so although I thought 2 and 3 were amazing they didn't have the impact they would have 10 years ago.
