Which game (or games) do you have the fondest memories with?


Recommended Posts

Most serendipitous event this morning with a lot of nostalgia attached.


My neighbour bought a clothes dryer at a garage sale and I went to help load it and there on a table was a box with an external 3.5" drive, some 3.5 inch floppies and some games manuals. Bought it for $1.00. My reward? F117A Nighthawk, Faery Tale Adventure II - Hall of the Dead, 688 Attack Sub, Hard Nova and Mech Warriors, plus the original game manuals. Games I played years ago and had completely forgotten about. Been playing on DosBox all day and the games work just fine. Sadly, I can't access 2 of the floppy disks and according to the labels on the disks they are Commander Keen and Rescue Rangers.

Ar Tonelico - Simple narrative, interesting cast and setting, strong focus on understanding your companions... can be a little date sim like (and if so, why no Harem!!)


Breath of Fire Series - I'm a dragon, biatch! Simple narrative, interesting cast, base building... can be a little cliché; plus it has the burden of Dragon Quarter to live down.


Final Fantasy Series - Simple narrative, interesting cast, willing to experiment with mechanics... can be a bit hit and miss, I have not enjoyed any of the recent additions.


Megami Tensei Series (and spin-offs) - Challenging narrative elements, interesting cast, strong focus on interpersonal 'links'... the differences between the different series/spin-offs is remarkable, so it is important to know which suits your play style) Personally I like both the Persona spin-off (again, why no harem?!) and the darker series.


Planescape Torment - Subtle narrative, interesting cast, strong focus on self definition and varied gameplay styles... dated.


Suikoden Series - Challenging narrative elements, huge cast, base building... it does unfortunately feel a little like pokemon with people at times; I would prefer a little more in the way of trade-offs in terms of who I can recruit at any one time. Also, it has the burden of IV to live down (actually a good game, but the plot was perhaps a little too simple?) If there is ONE game where harem is the default route, this should be it - but romance is basically a non factor. Perhaps because the cast is so large, development is modest and even then, only for a selection of the 108+ characters.


Tales of Series - Simple narrative, interesting cast and settings... can be a bit cliché but a solid experience. It seems that they seldom experiment, so you are unlikely to see anything novel, but rather an attempt to use established mechanics effectively.

Pirates and Monkey Island (on C64)


Ultima 7 (on PC) best RPG ever


Showing your age. Ultima 7 was the first game I worked on, after moving over from video graphics, in '91. Ouch, that was a long time ago.

Metal Gear Solid (1,2, and 3) and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas are games that I have very fond memories of. I played them a lot when I was younger, so I have massive nostalgia pangs for those games.

Not my favorite game but definitely attached to my fondest memories while gaming - Tomb Raider. I spent hundreds of hours sat next to my best friend cursing and passing the PS controller back and forth after each one of us died, lol. Good times.
