ITT: God Tier Video Games
What is the single game that gave you the most fun for your time?
>Console, pc, phone, doesn't matter...
>Old, new, any game
>Complicated or extremely simple, doesn't matter
Imagine that you had to recommend one (and ONLY one) video game to someone who has never played anything ever, what would it be?
>do not post games that have already been mentioned in the thread, just acknowledge that post (CTRL+F is your friend)
>if your #1 game is already named, what's your #2?
>It was the first complex RPG game I played by myself from start to finish
>I enjoyed it so much and it was so rewarding
>I still get chills listening to the music
Gotta go with FF7. My first real video game after years of playing snes shit like mario, donkey kong, ecco and such. I remember the very first time I saw a cut scene I damn near wigged out. I've since played it at least 2 dozen times and always notice something new I didn't see the time before.
Might not be the most popular choice. But I'd honestly go with Super Mario Galaxy. I've had hours of fun with it, trying to 100% it and such.
Same goes for its sequel. Super Mario Galaxy 2 is just as good as the original.
My fucking nigga, sick game.
This game is so fucking god tier. The music is sick, characters are lovable and rememberable. Not too difficult to get a handle on the game, but you can always try to get amazing at super-guards and stylish timings, as well as trying to 100% the game. Some of the puzzles are pretty clever, but mostly easy.
I don't think this game was groundbreaking. It took original Paper Mario and polished it. I just have really good feels towards it. Currently in a run I just started, feelsgoodman.
my nigga. it really is a near-perfect game.
Ark survival evolved is my favorite game of all time.
As far as minute to minute excitement and joy it would be New Adventure Island for the TurboGrafx-16. I love it's fast pace, it's cute animu character designs, and I'm a big platformer fan.
It's probably the only older game I feel ok paying retail price for.
I could play SMRPG over and over and over again. The battle system was extremely entertaining and the sidequests were unique and perfectly balanced in terms of difficulty to find and complete
i used to play super smash bros with my buddies every time my parents had a party or get together... all the kids would go hang out in a room, we brought our favorite n64 controllers, and we would beat the living shit out each other in this game all night...
such good memories... kirby ftw
Castlevania Symphony of the Night is the best single player console game.
Game has just all the little touches...On top of being excellent in all regards to gameplay, music, graphics, etc.
The director of the game left video games shortly afterwards, saying that personal creativity was being stifled by monetary interests.
Besiege, a great game. Not an oldie but its unique style and sandbox elements make it one of my favorites
I apologize if someone has mentioned this one in the event I did not see it, though the game has a small fanbase. Summon Night: Swordcraft Story, on the GBA. It is an rpg or sorts where you craft.your own weaponry from differing materials. I highly suggest it.
I downloaded VI recently because it's regarded as one of the all time best/most important games that I've never played
really hard to get started without a pile of weed though to be honest. You know what's hilarious, it'd actually be awesome to play games like that in VR...
I've played all of them, but all the followups are kind of reduced versions of SOTN. Lower resolution etc hurts a lot. All of them are missing the little touches that made SOTN so great though
>Find "Secret boots"
>"Discretely increases height."
>If you equip them alucard is literally 1 pixel taller
fucking this! i must have spent at least 1000 hours playing aoe2 in middle school... people still play this competitively btw.... there are some amazing multiplayer matches on youtube... look up a channel called "zeroempires" or something like that
Well, there are a few games that I really enjoy
Mass Effect Trilogy(just bought it a wrek ago and I can finally understand why it's so praised)
Hitman(I know it recieves a lot of hate, but gameplaywise it's juat as good as blood money, maybe even better, but storywise it lacks, a lot)
Psychonauts(played it like 40/45 times since I was 14)
Republic Commando(nuff said)
I know you said game, but I honestly still have fun playing videogames. These are just my favorite
god I used to whoop niggas in the arcade on this exact fucking coin op in 1992 or whatever. the one with all the square portraits around the screen.
thanks for the nostalgia bomb.
>be 8 years old
>figure out how to do shoryukens and shit just by trying a million different things
>nobody else can do them, kids twice my age and adults constantly asking me how
what a different time
Best battle system
Intricate and badass story
Zodiac stone monsters were the shit
Depends on preference, but I would say personally :
> Kerbal Space Program
It is a game that has a really nice open world, great physics engine, huge amount of creative freedom through craft editor, mods (such as kOS which allows programmable probes) and overall and great sense of wonder, achievement and danger in the bowels of space.
Quite a lot of them. Bloodborne as of recently.
But, a general list:
>Mario Kart 8
MK8 is comfy as fuck. Nothing like racing online, tucked in bed at 3 AM.
This 10. Last suggestion
You guys already know this is going to be 10/10, greats game of the century
I know it's stupid but it was the most enjoyable game I ever played:
Sam and Max: Hit the Road
Fuckit im throwing all the games that consumed me for a good period of time. Old fag here. Sim city 2k. Secret of mana. Ff 3. ff 7. Super mario 1 to smb 64. Legend of zelda link to the past. WOW.warcraft 2 and 3. (Soooo much level editing) Star craft. Minecraft. Turok dino hunter. Goldeneye 007. Tonyhawk pro skater 2. HOTS.
Everything about the classic was improved upon with this game.
Original Paper Mario was amazing. I played through a decent amount of TTYD but never beat it. I need to get another copy of it and play it again.
Little Fighter 2 is pretty friggin awesome too.
Countless hours back when I had no internet, I remember playing the trial version over and over again, then when I managed to get a full version I was in Nirvana for sure. Good times, wish I could turn back to them.
underrated post and I raise with Faxanadu, pic related
Jingle Jangle motherfuckers
Play the guitar, play it again, my Johnny
Maybe you're cold but you're so warm inside
I was always a fool for my Johnny
For the one they call Johnny Guitar
Play it again, Johnny Guitar
Holy cow i cant wait for this game to come out i have all of their posters,underware, controllers, controller thumb covers i mean fuck dude this is going to be better than any other gane that has come out OR will come out
Timesplitters 2. Specifically the mulitiplayer. Have never come across something so straight forward yet fast paced again. Recently discovered good PS2 emulator and got playing again. Amazing how good it still is.
Shit dude how has this not already hit the stores i mean me my broes even my fucking dad are going ape shit iver this game, i already have my ass planted in my seat ready for this bitch to be downloaded
>spend hours and hours on a server
>build awesome fort
>Level up dinos
>Get fuck ton of guns
>log off for the day
>come back to see your shit is all gone and base is destroyed
>Doedicurus is only thing left
while i wouldn't call it one of my favorites based on actual criteria, it's just so much fucking fun and such a time-waster that i enjoy it to death
Phantasy Star Online episodes 1+2
>Got it with my gamecube for christmas when I was 10 or 11 along with melee
>Played it with friends co-op all the time till 13-14, would stay up nights with them feeding mags and grinding for red boxes.
>Most memorable boss fights and music of just about any game to this day.
>Then a friend got action replay and we ruined the fun for ourselves. >Never did actually play online since you had to pay for it.
SORRY I DONT KNOW HOW TO TURN CAPS OFF THIS IS MY FIRST TIME ON THIS WEBSITE, BUT I DEFINITELY AGREE WITH ALL OF YOU BEST GAME TO BE 11/10 WOULD JIZZ IN BOTTLE TO REMEMBER THE MOMENT IT COMES OUT
i probably months as a kid leveling chrono trigger chars up to **. That game changed my life.
it changed me into a complete pussy only interested in imagination and masturbation.
but at least the game was good.
I kind of want to get Gen but I got bored of 4U kinda quick and no one I know plays anyway, probably gonna wait for a 5th gen game.
Finally got the set I wanted in MHFU, silver rath g rank with the gunlance, just after all my friends quit way back when. never got to use it...
This shit has killed so many hours of my life.
old gold. loved this fucking game. so many different weapons and smooth gameplay.
Ultima Online, played since release and still playing to this day.
. I would die trying to suck my dick in the middle of times square on top of the eifel tower next to the moon while dad's hung dong breaks my anus for the chance to triple prestige before you you scrub
do you remember the Dutch PK squad on Cats in like 1997
those guys were hilarious.
UO was the most fun and best game of all time, for about 18 months until they introduced carebear mode.
Nothing in video games has ever been as intense as waiting for a tower or castle to pop. The fucking wars over the loot holy shit.
I remember playing this as a kid, one of the best games ever made in my opinion.
DII.. still great to this day. fuck battlenet, single player that shyt!
Put a shitton of time into this game as a kid. Now I play the fuck out of it over on Project 1999.
Wow that's weird, was thinking the exact same thing earlier today. I dunno if it's the changing of the seasons or what but I had a nostalgic thought about CT and how everything was so much more simple and pure back then.
It was also my first RPG...got it for my birthday. My parents couldn't find a copy anywhere so they bought me an overpriced used copy from a video rental store. Really can't think of many happier times.
Really loved FF7 too, but that became a bit of an unhealthy obsession. I think the relative brevity of CT is crucial to it's pureness.
I've probably sunken hundreds of hours into this and the vanilla game
it'll feel like I played for an hour or so and next thing I know it had been an entire night
>Crusader Kings 2
>Characters have such depth and real personalities despite being randomly generated
>Actual "procedural" (I hate this word, mind) development story-wise
It's hard to explain to someone that hasn't seen it so I usually just tell stories.
I was a count in Rus attempting to unite the tribes and become high chief. After a few years of conquest and raids I managed to assert myself as the most dominant. Now it was time to rest. I fielded a couple of children and decided to be a good dad and insure they were raised well to handle the rough world. My eldest son had this best friend via event. The two were inseparable and eventually I came to view him with favor as well better than some of my bastard sons. When they came of age I even distributed a couple excess titles to him because I valued him as a vassal. Eventually the old man passed on and I had to play as my older son. Imagine the horror when I discovered that the friend was not only jealous of my inheritance, but plotting to kill me? With a heavy heart I had him arrested and saw him executed. It hardened him so that whilst he never had another true friend he was prepared for the rigors of nobility in the medieval era.
At any rate the game has a fuckton of mods that complete change the setting, add new traits, new events, and vary up the way things go without sullying the core. Elder Kings (TES mod), After The End (Inspired by Canticle for Leibowitz), Weeb mod I forget the name of that turns it into Japan, Game of Thrones mod (Extremely well done. Adds dragons, notable figures throughout hundreds of years of history, valyrian steel blades, and other unique features that are central to the GoT world.) and that's just to name a few.
I've got nearly 700+ hours into this game and I'm about to play some more.
Nethack niggas, finest gaming experience ever created. Not for pussies though.
Look at all you newfags.
You are not an OG gamer unless you played this.
Well, if it were still like it used to be when I remember it, Halo 3. The game itself is good (not the best in the series, but one of the better ones). But the online multi-player was my childhood.
I didn't actually own an Xbox 360, but my friend did and he had live, so we could do local co-op in an online match which was a great because it didn't always put you and your friend on the same team either.
But one thing that was really neat were the other multi-player maps that people would make in forge. Griffball was always fun, but people would make some crazy things in that game. We played it any time I went to his house for years
this shit keep destroying slowly my lifetime
So is this some kind of meme or are these replies some shillfags?
I do a megaman x speedrun every single day
But phantasy star I and IV are my favorite games.
I'm pissed that I missed it on steam when it was on sale, only got the shitty ps3 versions
and I heard about the mmo but it doesn't seem like it's getting localized any time soon
>best game in the genre
>Genuinely strange horror
>Engaging murder mystery
>Memorable townsfolk that feel alive, going about their day to day schedules
>Comfy town to explore, with a diner serving cherry pie and coffee, bar, market, gas station, hotel, police station, hospital, and a lake for fishing
>Hunger, sleep, car, clothing, beard, and time management that doesn't get annoying, but instead enhances immersion
The stiff controls really made RE and the psx-era survival horrors the classics they are.
Not being able to see your surroundings due to matte backgrounds is a big deal too, and prebaked backgrounds are a whole other lost art unto themselves which only sees resurgence in point-and-click games in this day and age, but only being able to awkwardly paddle around a tiny area with a much more nimble monster after you really gave those games a feeling of panic.
RE 4 is a great game too, and while it's atmospheric it's not really scary in part because it handles so well.
I'm not proud of this in the least, but I've played this garbage since 2008 till this day. No regrets.
You live in a world made by older people. Fuck you asshole. You have everything because we made it. Literally designed it and manufactured it. You have done nothing but get welfare. You are 50% of what we were in our youths. You are fucking transgender fat idiots who are rebels without a sane cause.
Your granddad who fought in wars and built up this country. Both USA and fucking whole Europe.
Played it since I was in high school +10 years ago
For the latter part of the question, let him play UO online on Dog Green or just let him play the stalingrad mission in regular CoD.
This was the game that got me into PC gaming and competitive gaming for a time
I actually just finished a playthrough of this with friends i love this series, kinda went off the rails in the third one with the whole Jean Reno and time travel thing but i love the whole series all the same
Everyone has their classic childhood game, but as someone who has only gotten into the series in the last few months, I have to recommend mgs 1 (I dunno if it's my favourite, bit definitely started the whole thing) I've played through all of them lately and fell in love.
Gothic II: Night of the Raven
>enable marvin mode
>find black troll or a dragon
December 2018 I'll have been playing CS in its various forms for 20 years.
If I had to recommend a game to a non gamer... Rocket League.
Best Castlevania, Best game. that feeling when Konami will never release a good castlevania again
The nostalgia hits me in the dick hole.
Au Contraire, everyone on my block was playing it. The gamestop guy wouldn't even let me sell my copy until I explained why I didn't want to keep it.
But personally I've never understood the appeal of this game. I love a good classic fantasy story that plays close to the chest, but LoD takes so few creative risks that it just felt flat to me.
>Imagine that you had to recommend one (and ONLY one) video game to someone who has never played anything ever, what would it be?
Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
Its simple and fun, challenging; but not so hard that it would dissuade a newbie and the music is great.
One of my favorite games from my childhood.
Could never get enough of it
Also Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines
