If You Could Only Play One Game For the Rest of Your Life, What Would it Be?

From "Imagine this: you're stranded on a desert island, having survived a shipwreck with one console and a sole game, and you've somehow found a source of electricity. Or perhaps you're living in a dystopian future where video games have been largely outlawed, though each civilian is allowed to keep a single artifact from the video game era. Pretend that you could only play one game for the rest of your life. There's no multiplayer, but it can be on any system, be it console, handheld, or a computer. What would you pick? What is the game that, above all others, you simply could not live without?"

I'm going to have to say Halo 3. The multiplayer could keep me busy forever.

Nice job, bub.

young juice3599d ago (Edited 3599d ago )

"there's no multiplayer" no halo 3 fo you

Edit: @Alcon Caper
damn you beat me to it

joydestroy3599d ago (Edited 3599d ago )

i don't think i could pick just one. it would either be Mass Effect 2 or God of War III

edit: if there were a gun to my head, i'd pick Mass Effect 2. i'm sure it's gonna be longer than GoW3

ico923599d ago

mine would be LittleBigPlanet the game is limited to your imagination the game allows you to make your own little game within the game.

Genesis53599d ago

The game of the year deluxe version of Oblivion. It might just take me the rest of my life to complete every single quest.

Blaze9293599d ago

Would definitely go with San Andreas probably...or some RPG. Maybe Mass Effect.

young juice3599d ago

it would have to b between me2 or lbp. maybe mgs4 no rpgfps's. aarrgh dont make me choose.... ok ummm i got it syphon filter 2...definatly

bnaked3599d ago (Edited 3599d ago )

Little Big Planet.

you can play and create together with your psn friends forever.. It's endless fun.. And it's also like a community platform where you can meet your friends and can write or talk about sh!t..

edit: oh i've read the article and they mean without multiplayer.. Don't know err GTA4 or Secret of Mana or world series of Poker lol

Megaton3599d ago

Super Mario World, GTA: Vice City, or Fallout 3.

UnwanteDreamz3599d ago

DEMON SOULS because I never have enough time to play it.

stb3599d ago

A racing game+little big planet horizon!!!=modnation racer or gran turismo 5.

Eamon3599d ago

LMAO, I will have to agree with UnwanteDreamz.

Demon's Souls takes too much time in one's life. So that would be my pick.

But the multiplayer game I'd pick to play forever is a close tie between Modern Warfare 2 and Halo 3.

bartkuz3599d ago

For me it would be GTA:SA or any FF. Just can't make a decision

LionheartAce3599d ago

Chrono Trigger. I can play it forever as I often do and still love it.

presto7173599d ago

that sh1t never gets old

Greywulf3599d ago

I'd take Gran Turismo 5. Or Little Big planet, could at least keep making stuff.

JsonHenry3599d ago

Baldurs Gate II; Shadow of Amn

wokhedinn3599d ago

"I'm going to have to say Halo 3. The multiplayer could keep me busy forever."

"i don't think i could pick just one. it would either be Mass Effect 2 or God of War III "

I think I'd have to choose between APB and The Old Republic.

johnnywit3599d ago (Edited 3599d ago )

@ lionheart
I totally agree. I just beat chrono trigger again and I have been playing it since 95. I love that game. The story, characters, art,music,and the new game plus never gets old.

ChrisW3599d ago

The one game I'd play for the rest of my life? --> Pong.

Why? Because I occasionally play it to this date.

InfectedDK3599d ago (Edited 3599d ago )

I think that is really a cool thing to think about for a sec..
I think I might choose Fifa 2010 because it never gets old, it's fun, it's serious and you can play tournaments alone or with others offline..
Although I would miss a lot of other games very fast..

mal_tez923599d ago

Played almost daily for 2 years without getting bored of it. I can probably play it for a lot longer.

Elvfam5113599d ago

MGS or MGS2 Sons of Liberty

Darkstorn3599d ago

One of the Metal Gear Solid games. So many secrets...

Hanif-8763599d ago (Edited 3599d ago )

I'd take Gran Turismo 5 because its gonna take 100+ hours to complete. It also features 2 player split screen and the rumored track editor and over a 1000 cars to choose from, what more could i ask for!

jwatt3599d ago

Twisted metal black, or GTA vice city. I would have to say though that LBP would make the best choice because with all that extra time you would end up creating some creative levels.

Tachyon_Nova3599d ago

After reading the articles title I thought, would have to be something with a good MP, but apparently it can't be. Assassin's Creed 2 was aswesome but I don't think I could play it for much longer, the new Ratchet is still keeping me interested after 3 playthroughs. But I'll go with GT5 because that game will have a play time upwards of several hundred hours, even without the MP.

PLAYSTATIONGENRATION3599d ago (Edited 3599d ago )

Would be it for me....sorry guys....or fallout 3

thegood333599d ago

Dragon Age. Greatest RPG ever.

snipermk03599d ago

You guys are all losers. I'd prolly pick a sex sim since you know you're prolly gonna ALWAYS need it. :D

aaron58293598d ago

Provided i can have my wheel... i'll say GT5.

Man, i played GT4 non stop until the day i bought my ps3... so yea... GT5 was an easy choice for me.

badz1493598d ago

my most played games since I don't even remember when

ia_studio3598d ago

demons souls or Little Big planet either one is just fine I can't have enough of either.
the only problem is that I don't think there's thech support in the desserted island or electricity so WTF.

Microsoft Xbox 3603598d ago (Edited 3598d ago )

I'm gonna have to say LBP. That game has enormous replay value with or without online gameplay. The create mode with a little imagination does wonders.

Fishy Fingers3599d ago

Counter Strike Source for me. Never get's old. Plus being a PC title, the MODs would keep you busy for ever.

Luckily, we don't have to pick one though.

theEnemy3598d ago

you're going to play with stupid bots for the rest of your life ?

manwich253599d ago

Borderlands or Forza Motorsport 3

cpuchess3599d ago

Absolutely...Any of the good large open world games for me.

Alcon Caper3599d ago

Pretty much any Blizzard Game, really.
