Breath of the Wild for me, but I also think that Super Mario World, Super Mario 64, and Halo 1 were pretty significant. Resistance 1 for the PS3 is overlooked I feel as well.

You’ll laugh but I think Mario 64 left the biggest impression on me and it was the first console I got at launch. I remember a few of my friends in the neighborhood coming over after I got back home and we just played it for the whole day passing off the controller.

It might be part nostalgia but I just remember us all being “wowed” by the game unlike how we were with SNES games when we were all playing it.


Going to have to be Soul Caliber for me. Its really the first were the arcade game paled in comparison to the home version.

I love this game. Got the SNES bundle of Christmas of 1992 I think. I wanted the Genesis with Sonic 2 but this was just as good at the time. This was a huge jump from the nes Mario's and I didn't think it could get batter than Mario 3. The addition to Different Yoshi's added amazing gameplay.

It was magical. Coming from Super Mario 3, this game felt glorious with its graphics, colors and music. A masterpiece.
