You can erase your memory of a single game to experience it again for the first time. Which game would you choose?
MGS2, turned my young mind into stew and cooked it into a wholesome family meal.
MGS2 is my favorite MGS game and i finished it so many times as a kid, truly one of a kind. but the game that changed me forever is bloodborne. i hated every dark souls-type game, even demons souls when it was super underrated on ps3 felt clunky in my opinion. but after bloodborne, I went and played every souls game from fromsoft ware, got them to 100% platinum (except dark souls 2 which I only need 6 trophies but meh) and i have never been able to enjoy another gaming experience like the one bloodborne provided the first time i finished it. it's my favorite game of all time, not even games like God of War or the last of us 2 can move bloodborne out of that special place in my heart.
Good pick. I'll stay this gen and choose the greatest roguelike/bullet hell game ever made....Enter the Gungeon. I enjoyed Isaac and loved Rogue Legacy and Nuclear Throne, but for my money Enter the Gungeon annihilates them. The pop culture references and literally the greatest assortment of guns ever in a videogame. The style, the immense difficulty (pre Switch edition), the pure bullet hell gameplay, the synergies, the secrets. I could write a book on why Gungeon is pure, unadulterated, bliss. Unfortunately when Gungeon hit Switch the difficulty was nerfed, but the feeling the first time u take down Dragun, get to the gun to kill the past, and clear a character's arc is incredible. Then, when u realize there is a whole other level above what u thought would be the end, and u take down the Lich. It's truly awesome. It's a game that is unimaginably hard at first. Just collecting the bullet parts and getting one step closer to unlocking a secret character felt like a victory. Pre Switch the platinum percentage was dramatically lower, the game isn't as difficult now, but it's still a great time and it's my most cherished platinum. I'm also proud to have mastered the game when it was still ridiculously difficult, and i'm proud to have been on this game day 1.
GOW 2018 MGS 3 Super Mario 64 TLOU RE4
Easy answer.... BIOSHOCK
Maaaate I replayed that for the first time in years recently, stellar game, totally still stands on it's own, haven't played anything quite like it since.
I am going to say Mass Effect, though if I looked over my list of games I'm sure there would be something else. But Mass Effect 1,2,3 would be fun to be able to play in a row blind again.
Now you're taking.
The Last of Us
Witcher 3, Deus Ex (The OG one), Nier: Automata, Dark Souls/Bloodborne, Hyper Light Drifter, Hollow Knight, Devil May Cry 3, Ori & The Blind Forest, Persona 4/5, System Shock 1/2 etc.... Not able to remember everything
Hyper Light Drifter was my disappointment of the year the year it released. That map, that framerate, that dash plus framerate, and the......story? I wanted to like it, gorgeous art, but no.
I'd love to play final fantasy 10 again Or pikmin
Too many to choose from. With 40 years of gaming, I could say Metroid, Ninja Gaiden, Phantasy Star, Bionic Commando, Castlevania 4, SoR, Gunstar Heroes, Devil May Cry, Contra, Mega Man, Shenmue, Tekken 3, Super Hot VR, Blood and Truth, etc. I don't know. Maybe Skies of Arcadia. But there were so many games that were equally as fun. One is not enough.
Mass Effect 2. It's one of my favorite games of all time.
Both ME and ME2 were brilliant imo. Two of my favorite games of all-time. That intro for ME2, The Illusive Man, Mordin Solus, Club Afterlife, the fish in your room, The Collectors. That was good Bioware. The "suicide mission" was a bit anticlimactic, but the journey was incredible. The characters were great. Mordin, Garrus, Miranda, Thane, Tali, and even the dlc character Zaeed was awesome. Legion was pretty cool as well.
Elder Scrolls 3 Morrowind.
Morrowind is definitely the first game I can think of. But I’m sure there are a lot more
Kotor and Uncharted 2. Of course, I would want to play them for the first time within the context that I experienced them in back then. Uncharted 4 may be a better game than 2 but when I played 4 I was sort of worn out on the series while 2 was still fresh and surprising for me. And Kotor... I still get a special feeling when I hear the sound track for that game.
Bloodborne, World of Warcraft, Diablo 2, FF Tactics, Blood and Wine, Divinity: Original Sin 2, Metal Gear Solid, Devil May Cry, Code Veronica, Phantasy Star Online, Fallout NV, Silent Hill 2, Majora's Mask, Mario 64, SotN, Tekken Tag, The Last of Us, KOTOR, Orange Box, Halo, and Final Fantasy VII.
Mass Effect series
NFS Most Wanted 2005, Silent Hill 2, Half-Life, Ocarina of Time, Conkers Bad Fur Day or Demon Souls. Any one of those would be great 😁
Half-Life, Halo, Journey
Dragon age origins
Oddworld Abe's Exoddus or Crash Team Racing. Glorious PS1 childhood memories.
Love Oddworld. I can't for the life of me understand why they had the voice over guy change how he spoke for the HD remake. It's weird. It was so much better before.
All of the Zeldas I've played.
Really hard not to pick something like Outer Wilds, or Shadow of the Colossus.
The last of us! This story made me actually feel things I didn't think I would do from games! The connection I felt to ellie, the sorrow Joel carried and the dark egotistical side of humans, that I care more about me than others/the world. A great cinematic story with depth. Wish I could play it all over again for the first time!
Zelda Breath of the Wild
Shadow of the Colossus.
A lot of them, MGS3, MGS4, God of War, World of Warcraft, Persona 4 and stuff...
Ninja Gaiden (2004)
Mass Effect 2 - almost perfect.
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Or Super Mario World. Both were like my favorite games when I was a wee boy.
Silent Hill 2
All of Persona
FINAL FANTASY VII my favorite of all times
too many to count - some that come to mind: god of war4 MGS3 and 4 last of us RDR1 GTA: vice city zombies ate my neighbors demon souls syphon filter jak and daxter ratchet and clank uncharted killzone 2 zombie mode from black ops
Hard to decide between FF7, Bioshock or Dark Souls. I'll go with FF7 because I was young and it affected me the most. I'd love to be that age again discovering not just FF7 but RPGs as a genre and the beautiful potential of video games.
The Last of Us, Witcher 3, Fallout 3 to name a few.
MGS 3: Snake eater, Mass Effect trilogy and Supreme Commander (Loved the unit size and scale)
Tough one. Probably Halo CE.
All of Quantic Dream's games. Especially Heavy Rain.
Devil May Cry 1 Metal Gear Solid 1 Resident Evil 1 Resident Evil 4 God of War 1 (2005) Uncharted 2 Tekken 3 DOOM (2016) Dragons Dogma Vanilla (miss that menu song) BloodBorne Demon Souls Nier
Easy. Gta3, goldeneye, socom2
Too many to name. Just one
Too many to name just one no particular order. Legend of Dragoon Skies of Arcadia Shenmue Metal Gear Solid Star Ocean 2-3 Final Fantasy 7,8,9 Halo Jet Set Radio Future Fable Zelda Majoras Mask - Ocarina of time Star Fox 64 Banjo Kazooie Super Mario world Shadow of the Colossus Sonic 1,2,3,Adventure Super Mertroid Tenchu Pokemon Silver-Gold Power Stone GTA 3,vice city san Andreas Witcher 1,2,3 Smash bros 64,Melee Streets of rage Tetris Pong E.T the extra terrestrial.... yeah just kidding on the last 3. :p
Final Fantasy VII
Shenmue. Changed me as a gamer 20 years ago.
Last of Us, RDR 2 and BoTW
No question about it for me, Shadow of the Colossus
FFX, FFVII, and Kingdom Hearts
Ocarina of Time.
New Vegas, baby.
Playing WoW back in the day changed everything for me. I started playing right as Burning Crusade released but I was already in my mid 20s. I had played Everquest till my eyes bled as well as Ultima Online, but WoW was something special back then. Also Diablo 2 was a big game changer for me. Either of those would be fantastic.
Shenmue for me. My fave game ever . So happy only a few months until 3
I have to say COD 4. For all the single player goodness that was on PS2 (my fav console), COD4 was the most fun I had playing games.
Final fantasy 7 and I am somewhat getting my wish. But besides that, Xenogears.
Ico, Shadow of the Colossus, Inside, The Last of Us, Until Dawn, The Order, and many more.
Assassin's Creed 1, not because it was the greatest game ever but because all the trailers made it look so amazing and I bought into the hype like no other game before or since. For months I was marking days off the calendar until that game was released. I made a dvd full of trailers just so I could sit an watch them all easily. Then when I finally played it I was almost nervous, as I saw the city of Jerusalem for the first time.
