Not an exhaustive list, but these are the ones that REALLY got their hooks in me.

DOOM, StarCraft, and Street Fighter Alpha 3. I still play all 3 religiously (and SFA3 is online with fightcade!!!)

Killer Instinct (All of them), Mortal Kombat X, Super Mario Strikers, MGSV: The Phantom Pain, Minecraft, Street Fighter Alpha & SFA 3, and Oddworld: New N’ Tasty (MY CHILDHOOD GAME REBORN). So yeah.

Well Resident Evil drew me in long before i even saw it being played. Even longer before I played it myself.

Back in the magazine reading 90’s =P

Killer instinct 2013. Watched hours of youtube videos because I didn’t own an xb1. But I knew that as soon as I had money that I was going to buy KI.

Mass effect 2. This time I had no xb360 and didn’t know what Mass effect was. Then finally ME2 came out for ps3 and I hated myself for not paying attention to this game sooner. Shows how bad console exclusives are, lol. One of my favorites on previous gen consoles.

killer instinct, kingdom hearts, uncharted, legend of dragoon, devil may cry 3, tony hawk pro skater 5 ( game of the year :joy: ), gears of war ultimate ( my first gears game was the best experience ever!!!), street fighter 5, monster hunter.
