Favorite games?

Postby MajorMajorMajorMajor » Wed Aug 07, 2019 5:10 pm

What are everyone's favorite games?

Here are mine that I think are worth sharing.
You might tell that I like halo from my profile picture, and because everyone probably knows halo, I'm going to spend time on other things.

Half Life 2
I once heard that during Halo's glory days people argued whether half life 2 or halo 2 was better. Considering that Half life 2 only has campaign, that's impressive. Seriously, the game takes you through multiple dimensions in an incredibly varied solo experience. I mean to emphasize how 'solo' the experience is. It's just you and your gun. You go through combine armies, you pass through ravenholm- half-life 2's frightening version of the zombie experience, and through dimensions. This game reminds you why silent protagonists are in gaming- I remember little about me except for the gun I'm holding and the incredible storywriting valve does.

Battlefield 3
-BF3 deserves praise from me for having the best multiplayer combat that I've ever experienced. It's not something you can try out ever again, but I'd like to comment on one interesting feature in the game. Coming to BF3 with no previous experience, the gameplay is tough. For me, a halo player, the 1-3 second kill times are something hard to get used to. How do you ever decide that in the open, which corridors are safe to cross and which ones aren't? The safe and dangerous spots might look the same.

If you've ever seen some satire video called FBI agent training, something like that, the video shows a picture of some snowy retreat and then asks you to find the sniper in the picture, you then realize there's no sniper in the picture. That's basically finding snipers in battlefield for me when I had to learn the game- but soon anyone half decent at the game knows where to show up and where to not show up.

But mastering jet flying and helicopter flying was incredibly difficult but incredibly rewarding. Flying the jet made you untouchable to everything else other than enemy jets, and being the top gun on the map basically made you feel like a god. But it's really the diverse and well-tuned gunplay that made the game so good.


Skyrim
-Mods. Lots of mods.

Flash games
These things are really the backbone of the fun internet for me.
I recommend these games beyond all others I've ever played to you- and I've been playing flash games for a looong time.

Phoenotopia
-This game is too good for me to even pretend I should describe it. The author is in the process of making phoenotopia 2!

Ge.ne.sis
-It's a laggy as hell (I guess pushing limits of flash) but one of the most conceptually provocative, beautiful (art-wise) games I've played, and it has absurdly fun characters.

Skyrim, I suppose, always a good one for me.

I'm a big Pokémon fan, although I've missed out on a couple of the latest generations.

Dragon Age, always been fond of Origins. Didn't mind the next two as much as most people.

Mass Effects 1-3 (even with 3's underwhelming ending). Never actually picked up Andromeda. Guess I just didn't feel the need to.

Those are probably the big ones for me.

I've sunk a ridiculous amount of hours in skyrim and the witcher series as a whole. Mass effect as well. Something about a strong story driven game has me entranced.

Right now I'm playing fire emblem 3 houses and that's been a great experience.

I enjoyed the Pokemon series but haven't gotten up to date with the newer generations because I was unable to afford the console. I liked Skyrim and Fallout 4.

I played lots of a really shitty European RPG called Two Worlds. Part 1 and 2.

It's really bad and no should play it, but for some reason it hooked me for a while.

I love to play douchebag workout which is a workout game where I can make body and do a couple of exercises and be popular. I came to know this game from famous app called blackmart.

I like games. What games? Depends on my mood so the list is never big enough.

Half Life 2
Battlefield 3
Skyrim


You really like First Person Shooters huh? Half Life 2 (Episode 2) ended with a cliffhanger though. :(
Any Half Life, Elder Scrolls (Skyrim), System Shock, Halo or Fallout 3/4 has a focus on FPS+story in the past/future so they're nice. Never played Battlefield.

I think you could say Indie games here. But while I do love vector art (used in most flash games) it is slow as the device has to draw everything from schematics instead of copying a bunch of pixels, that's why it's unusual to see non-flash games using it.

PS:
Thanks for reminding me of Phoenotopia, I remember playing it but never bothered to finish it. Was probably around the time I found Cave Story.

I think my favorite game over the last few years would be Elite:Dangerous.

I don't play as much as I used to for reasons, but there's still a lot I like so until a better space game comes along that's where I'll be more often than not.

Also borderlands. All of them. Best game series ever.

If story games are your thing, try out "What remains of Edith Finch" It's also a very great game.

As a child I loved one called Lost Vikings .... ufff! beautiful game
Ah! also all of Worms.
I currently play LoL, but I can't say it's the game that represents me

Geez I've been playing games since the Atari 2600 was a big thing, you want me to pick a favorite? Hmmmm....I don't know if it's all time favorite but I really love Final Fantasy 6. Deep story, lots of action, a few VERY heart-rending scenes if certain things happen (Celes tries to kill herself out of despair), fun stuff. More recent would be Stardew Valley, and Recettear an Item Shop's Tale (farm sim and a cute store sim)

I also like FF6. I've heard that your favorite FF is your first (and mine was 6 or 3 if you're going with the Super Nintendo American version) but it's still the best, and last, 2D FF. Not only does it have a great story, you can also save some characters from near-certain death, meaning that your actions matter! (unlike other FF games)

I just finished the Witcher season 1, and it made me start playing the Witcher 3 again. That's one the best games ever made IMHO. TV series was surprisingly good too.
