What games basically stuck with you?

Oh wow…Oddworld totally slipped my mind…fantastic game

Shenmue, Super Metroid, Mario Kart, KI Mario & Zelda on 64.
KoF 94-98 & Street fighter Alpha series.

I need to make some time & play Ori. That game looks legit! …oh & Castlevaina LoS was a great game. I haven’t played anything past the 1st one, but that’s only cause I enjoyed the 1st one so much I’d rather not ruin the experience & great memories I have.

Tales of Symphonia
Tales of Vesperia

Legend of Zelda: OoT
Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

Duck Tales


Castlevania: SotN

Killer Instinct (2013 on)


Mass Effect 1,2,3

Just about all the old nes, snes and N64 games, which is why Nintendo should hurry the F up and release a virtual console on Switch. (Special place for the Zelda and Mario games and Secret of Mana and Chrono Trigger)

After that though, Halo, Gears, Final fantasy VII and even more so Skyrim, Witchers games and Mass Effect series

@TheNinjaOstrich have you played Mass Effect Andromeda yet? Would love your opinion on the game

Edit: Almost forgot the other Bioware games, kotor 1 and 2 and Jade Empire

Special mention for Braid and Shadow Complex for making me aware of great arcade/indie games

Edit 2: Also huge fan of Metroidvania games because of SotN and Super Metroid, Ori is a modern classic

I own it! I love it a lot. It’s similar in feel to ME1, where it was more exploration based, than liner like the others going forward. It’s Combat is probably the best in the series. Very fluid and solid. I’m sure if you get it, you’ll like it. :slight_smile:

Silent Hill
Dead Space
Killer Instinct
Gears of War
Final Fight

I have it, only a few hours (probably about 10) in. Dont have a lot of time bacause of a baby at the moment. And while I missed getting back in to it with Sheppard and my favorite crew, I am really enjoying the game nontheless, which is why the bad reviews puzzle me. Will admit it falls short of Mass Effect 2, which is a solid contender of best game ever for me. But still a solid 8,5 / 9 to me.

The world building, and story/character development in this game is still so far ahead of most other games…that it surprises me there havent been more Kotor/jade empire/dragon age clones on the market. Mass effect 1 taught my best friend to appreciate story elements in a game, before that he always skipped cutscenes.

Thats why I worry that eventhough Anthem looked great, it will lose that typical kotor/Mass Effect charm, since there are no comparable games.

Maybe that cyberpunk from cd project (from the witcher series) will scratch that itch.

I can easily list off more than 100 titles of games I loved and grew up with, I actually made a list of all the games I’ve ever played minus the gems I may have forgotten, lol.

Anyways, only one game (trilogy) I remember spending the most hours, exploring each end and having the absolute most fun I could ever imagine.

Legacy of Goku Trilogy

Dead or Alive 3(The first and only time a games story brought me to tears)
Guilty Gear X2

Have you perhaps played dragonbal xenoverse 2? I am considering getting it for switch when it releases next month, bitI never played dragonball titles and the whole mmo/online bit is confusing, in that I dont really understand what I can exect from the game in singleplayer/vs content.

Played the first and I was turned down by the lackluster mmo options and clunky combat mechanics. I got so spoiled by Budokai’s mechanics that jumping into this one was a bit jarring. Though, I’ve heard the second one fixes what the first did wrong but not so much as to feel like a proper sequel. So if you played the first than Xenoverse 2 won’t be all that much newer, if you haven’t than you might have a good time with it.

With any MMO, if you stay in your own hub it may feel a bit lonely, but there are some NPCs around that you can interact with a bit. I heard VS was awful because it’s terribly unbalanced. If you have a friend to play with, I think you’ll enjoy it. Alone can be hit or miss honestly.
