What games basically stuck with you?

What are some video games that have (among a number of things) left really deep lasting marks, impressions, and even impacts on you as well as deeply stuck with you and etched into your whole being (including your mind/psyche)?

There are several games that have done ALL OF THE ABOVE to me and they include:
Dead Space
Killer Instinct
Mega Man X
Heavenly Sword
Mortal Kombat
House of the Dead
Soul Calibur
Time Crisis
Little Nightmares

Now out of all of these games I just listed/mentioned, the one game that currently left the BIGGEST mark, impression, and impact on as well as WHOLEHEARTEDLY stuck with me and etched into my ENTIRE being (including my mind/psyche) personally is Ori and the Blind Forest. Here are my own personal reasons on why that became the case for me now:

:grin: :grinning: :smile: :smiley: :blush: :heart_eyes: :sunglasses: :thumbsup:

-Mario Bros. 3
-Naruto Clash of Ninja Revolution 2
-Naruto Shippuden Clash of Ninja Revolution 3
-Super Street Fighter IV:3D Edition
-Super Street Fighter IV:Arcade Edition(Free with Gold and I eventually updated to Ultra)
-Killer Instinct
These 5 games basically brought me into fighting games. The Naruto games brought me into the genre. They felt like fast-paced Tekken games in a way. The Street Fighter 4 games brought me to the competitive side of fighting games. Killer Instinct was the first fighter I actually took seriously though. Mario Bros 3 on the Gameboy Advance was my first video game though

Honestly…pretty much everything I’ve ever played.

Seriously, the other day out of the blue I got a song from Legend of Legaia stuck in my head, and I haven’t even played it since it was first released on PlayStation around 2000-ish. And that game wouldn’t even go on a list of top games I would make.

Mario Kart (SNES)
StarFox (N64)
Killer Instinct (SNES)
F-Zero (SNES)
Super Sprint (NES)
Xcite Bike (NES)
Donkey Kong Kountry (SNES)
