fave game used to be COD: Zombies but now I have difficulties in finding DLC map players online.
so my next fave game is : MWH: Base game. Excellent game for a 30 mins hunts and quick flare help online. Now i see why are fans raving about it. It is really a game a class of its own even though it it just repetitive game.
Grand Theft Auto IV. I know most would say San Andreas or maybe even GTA V; but the gritty 90's New York atmosphere, fleshed out characters and story of GTA IV raised the bar for me, and was probably the most memorable gaming experience I've ever had.
Most enjoyable? Probably Mount and Blade: Warband, the skill ceiling is high and the satisfaction that you get from i.e. chucking a javelin into some horseriders face heading straight for you or beating a better player in a fair duel never failed to amaze me. I spend a good couple hundred hours doing just that, for some reason it just scratched that particular itch. Never bothered much with the singleplayer cRPG, but there is incredible value there as well.
Close second would be Red Orchestra 2/Rising Storm. 32 people coordinating and yelling like madmen before banzai charging into machine gun fire and flamethrowers is simply one of those things you have to experience in gaming.
Most meaningful?Final Fantasy XIV, for all the great people it introduced into my life and the profound effect they had on it. I would not be where I am today had I not decided to pick it up on a whim and give it a chance. Sadly, life changes and these days I don't have the time to sink dozens of hours into an MMO anymore, but I still keep in touch with the people I met there. Here's hoping I get around to playing Shadowbringers sometime later this year, I hear its fantastic!
Shadow of the collosus: "Questioning whether games are art isn’t an issue of whether the visuals are pretty or not, but whether the game is able to inspire an emotional response from you – and ideally something other than just anger, which this game manages with such effortless sleight of hand it seems almost literally magical."
Planescape: Torment. The story, the characters, the environments and the soundtrack all melt together into one cohesive brilliance that is both incredibly tragic and incredibly appealing to my individuality.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl. I absolutely love the remarkably unique premise of an alternative reality in which Chernobyl caused the emergence of a supernatural 'pocket' containing a world designed to be your enemy.
Heroes of Might & Magic III: Complete Edition. The game is very easy to get into and once you do get into it, you will notice the seemingly endless amount of layers of depth that you organically peel off one at a time.
La-Mulana 1 & 2
In these action-adventure-platformers you will get the ultimate archaeological experience where you have to carefully examine and understand everything in the environments and in the texts you will encounter to stay alive and to understand the deep lore and solve the ultimate mystery of life, with close to zero handholding.
It's pretty much impossible to name just one game, and it's even harder considering how many genre there are in this amazing media, but if i have to pick just one game, it would be without the doubt MGS1:
- Revolutionary AF on its time, with incredible atmosphere
- Best Bosses on any video game ever
- One of the best story on any game, and my personal favorite of all.
- Easily one of the best, if not best, main character of any game, Aka the one of only legendary Solid Snake.
And i can keep going like this all day, but gotta stop at some point, right.
It was the first real RPG I ever played and I don't think I've ever completely lost myself in another RPG since it released, the limitations of the systems at the time and the absence of voice acting meant I really had to fill in a lot with my imagination.
