What are some of your favorite games?Posts in thread: 8
List some of your favorite games, and explain what aspects that makes you like them. The storyline? Gameplay? Or maybe the visuals or sound?
I'm a narrative junky. If the story doesn't hook me I quickly lose interest.
Some of my favourites:
Phantasy Star 4
Orcarina of Time
Silent Hill 2
Star Wars: KOTOR
Elder Scrolls Oblivion / Skyrim
Mass Effect (all great but 2 is simply amazing)
TellTale's Walking Dead
The narrative is really important for me as well. I like good stories that really pulls you into the game. Also really like games that are original in how they convey the story, like Journey.
Here are some of my faves:
Assassin's Creed 3
Final Fantasy 10
Diablo I & II
"Diablo I & II"
But not Diablo III?
I should probably add Football Manager to my list. No game has eaten more hours of my life than that one.
All of the Total War Series, Stronghold Crusader, and Gothic 3. Each of these games has entertained me for hundreds upon hundreds of hours.

Final Fantasy VII (obviously!)
World of Warcraft (even though I wouldn't come anywhere near it nowadays)
Quote Mike Holmes:
"Diablo I & II"I enjoyed the first two playthroughs of Diablo 3, but I think the auction houses ruined it. They simply reduced the loot drops too much, and forced us to buy stuff instead. But where's the fun in buying stuff? The fun part isn't having stuff, but finding it. That's why I still have hopes for Diablo 3 on my beloved PS4. If they don't include the auction houses there, the loot drops should increase as a result, adn the game would be a lot more fun.
Anyway, my favorite games, as of right now:
Carmageddon (iPad)I loved this back in the old days, and now it's back on iPad. It's cheap, but the graphics are heavily improved, and the controls pretty good. Not flawless, but pretty good. I love it because it's so insanely violent. And yes, I know that makes me sound weird, hehe. But c'mon, it's a game built entirely around causing as much carnage as possible. How can that be bad? And how many times haven't you played a racing game and wished you could smash your opponents to tiny bits? Well, now you can.
Star Wars: The Old Republic Yes, it was disappointing at first, and I quit after a month or so. But they have worked hard on it since then, and it shows. There's a lot better "MMO" feeling, there's a group-finder to help you find groups, and much less bugs and so on. Oh, and Cathar as a playable race. Awesome. On top of that, it really feels like a Star Wars game, too. In fact, I think it's a much better prequel than the prequel movies, despite being set a few thousand years in the past.
Skylanders: Giants Dspite being 30+ and male, I love this game. It's a solid platformer, with tons of secrets, awesome characters, a fun arena-mode where you fight waves of enemies in various conditions (arena covered in smoke, arena falling apart etc) and so on. True, you do have to buy some characters to play it, and yes, it does get expensive if you want to collect all. But if you only stick to the eight you need (one for each element), it's not all that expensive, and all characters can be used in all games - even in the iPad games like Battlegrounds and Cloud Patrol. And yes, even in Skylanders 3.
