    RE: games that leave a lasting impression on you

    For me it would be The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time.

    Even after 13 years I still don't hesitate to play it. I remember absolutely everything about the game and have already beaten it several times before and even so, it still has plenty of replay value for me and has most certainly left a lasting impression as well. I remember the first time ever playing it which was about when I was 6 years old. Me and my brother would fight over who played when and for quite a while we never even got that far. The puzzles were too much for our little minds haha XD

    RE: games that leave a lasting impression on you

    There are games that have left a lasting impression on me, but for all the wrong reasons. But since this is about the right reasons, I'll stay clear of that. A series I first started playing in 2006, that got me greatly interested in the adventure/mystery genre:

    Due to the linearity of adventure games in general, the series doesn't have a lot of replay value. But the narrative is so good, it's been great fun to play them all again now, years later. And I still haven't got through the most recent game. Even watching that trailer of the first game gives me a few of those good shivers. The characters are so interesting, it definitely left a lasting impression on me since I hope to become a game designer, and it's an original concept.
    Gene: "Have faith in me guys, enjoy the ride—you're in good hands. I can handle this. I can do it!"
    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    RE: games that leave a lasting impression on you

    DOOM
    Do I really need to explain this one? To put it as simply as possible, Doom is nearly 20 years old and I'm still utterly addicted to it. The fact that there are thousands of user-made maps/mods available -- and some decent random map generators too -- gives the game an indefinite lifespan.

    Fast, tough, and undeniably fun, with no pace-breaking cutscenes or context-sensitive bullshit getting in the way and suddenly making everything feel like a semi-interactive series of pre-defined events.

    And of course, the map design in itself speaks volumes:

    Run & Gun gameplay at its finest.
    "It turned out that the ghost was just Mr. Finley, who ran the amusement park. The spooky part is that, as soon as the ghost appeared, the teenagers' dog began to speak! And it spoke in a tortured parody of human speech: 'relp me, Raggy,' it would say. 'I am an abomination and rould re rilled. Rill re, Raggy.'"

    RE: games that leave a lasting impression on you

    MadWorld due to it being the first really violent motion-based game that I played and well, it sure crushed the kiddy aspect of the Wii for me:

    RE: games that leave a lasting impression on you

    There are a lot to choose from. I tried to limit it to 6, to make it look presentable on the forum. I also chose each game on different platforms. You guys already know I love the shit out of Tekken & Oblivion, so I didn't bother to bring them up here, since I've talked about them in previous threads. Anyway, here they are.

    [img=290x290]http://www.culturamix.com/wp-content/gallery/pokemon-zetta/pokemon-zetta4.jpg[/img] [img=290x290]http://www.romstation.fr/games/psx/cover/680.jpg[/img] [img=290x290]http://www.brashgames.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/JR-2.jpg[/img]

    Pokemon Gold
    If someone were to ask me what the best generation of Pokemon games was, I would have to go with Gen 2, which is Gold, Silver, and Crystal. The reason this had such an impact on me, is because I already loved Red & Blue and this brought back everything that was great about the first games, but it also gave you much more. Whole bunch of new pokemon, whole bunch of new things to do. The game map was larger, and it also allowed you to go back to Kanto, which was incredible to me. It was in full colour, too. I could just sit there for hours on end playing this, and I've been meaning to give it a run through, recently. I'm not sure why, but later Pokemon games never really left an impression on me, they just seem to lack the "magic". In fact, I'm just going to put that down to my age.

    Spyro 2
    Although the general consensus is that Spyro 3 is the superior game, and probably the best platformer on the PS1, I still prefer Spyro 2. Beating that game meant the world to me. It left me frustrated a lot of the time, as a kid, but a couple of years ago, I played through the game on an emulator, and managed to beat it 100%. That gave me a warm feeling inside. Right when I entered the first home-world, Summer Forest. I fell in love instantly with the games design. It's just something I can't put into words.

    Yes, I did just open the game to take screenshots of it.
    Gorgeous to say the least. It wasn't all just pretty visuals, either. The game was pretty much perfect to me. collecting gems, to buy new abilities, collecting orbs to unlock new worlds, and levels. Each world was based off a season, each level had a different theme, pertaining to that season. It was ridiculously fun to play, and it's the pinnacle of 3D platforming in my opinion.

    Jet Set Radio
    Speaking of stunning visuals. It really doesn't get any better than JSR, with it's beautiful cel-shaded graphics. So colourful, and vibrant. It makes the game feel alive, especially when you play it using a Dreamcast VGA cable, on a big flatscreen. It's alsmost as good as modern games, with their fancy HD. Although the gameplay, and story are both brilliant, it's the style that really makes this game what it is, in my opinion. Very urban, very hip-hop. From the graffiti down to the music, which features a lot of funk and soul samples, with drum breaks and turntablism. It's very lively stuff, which goes hand in hand with the visuals. Brings about nothing but good vibes and I don't think I've ever heard a more perfect soundtrack, to be honest.

    Stonking Bassline
    Speaking of HD. We getting a re-release later this year, on PSN, XBLA, and Steam, which is a nice idea, but to me, it's pretty unnecessary. I'd prefer a straight up sequel. I wish I had more to say about this game. There's not really a lot to say, it's just a really good, really stylish game.

    Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
    Oh boy, where do I start? Well let's start with the fact I had already played GTA III, and Vice City. Both are games where you could not swim, could not control a gang, and could not eat until you were physically sick. Then along came SA, the best game in the entire series, in my opinion. The sheer scope of the game was enough to put butterflies in my stomach. Of course, I spent a lot of my time just pissing around, running people over, and doing jumps on the BMX. But that was the best thing about it. You could do anything you wanted. Nothing beat hijacking a plane, and crossing the borders when you weren't supposed to. It gave you an automatic 4-Star wanted level, which made for some of the most exciting survival gameplay ever experienced. The story was also fantastic, when you actually got round to doing the missions, and the characters were brilliant. The top-notch voice acting gave the cutscenes a very cinematic feel. Years later, I still play it on PC from time to time, and ithas been given a whole new life, thanks to mods, and San Andreas Multiplayer.

    Tony Hawk's Underground
    Yet another game from a series I was completely loyal to up until it's release. I was undecided on whether this, or THPS2 was my favourite game in the whole series. I decided to go with underground, because once again, It brought so much new stuff to table. The ability to get off your board alone was a selling point. You could invent your own tricks, and everything. It was also the first game in the series to have an actual storyline, and it was pretty damn engaging, if I say so, myself. It gave us Eric Sparrow, the biggest b*****d in the world of skateboarding;
    [img=800x600]http://www.mobygames.com/images/shots/l/491038-tony-hawk-s-underground-windows-screenshot-eric-sparrow-makes.jpg[/img]
    Did you help ME out, Eric!? DID YOU!?
    For those of you who don't know, he basically betrays you, for a lot of money. The final skate-off with him is easily the most difficult and most tense moment in the game. I was a massive fan of professional skateboarding, so having real world skaters appearing in the game, voice acting, and being a part of the story was something special to me. Not only did THUG revolutionize the extreme sports genre, it also retained a lot of what made the first games good. Great level design, simple, yet challenging goals, and most importantly, it was about skateboarding. THUG2 spoiled everything in my opinion. it took all seriousness out of the franchise, and replaced it with a whole lot of silly shit. Jumping over the helicopter in THUG was the most incredibly bad ass thing you could do in the game. in THUG2, that kind of thing just becomes common. The Tony Hawk's series was never particularly realistic, but THUG2 is just ridiculous, in my opinion.

    Age of Empires
    It wasn't the first RTS game I ever played, that honour goes to C&C: Red Alert, but this is one the first proper games I really got stuck into, on PC. I prefer the classical time period of AoE, over the modern guns n' bombs setting of C&C. That's just personal preference. That, and I had only played C&C on PS1 beforehand. When you experience a type of gameplay on the format it was intended for, you suddenly start to appreciate, and enjoy it a whole lot more. Commanding an army at the click of a mouse was incredible to me. I prefer it even over modern RTS games, because of it's simplicity. A lot of new games have too many things to keep track of. too many unnecessary gameplay mechanics, which make the sytems seem needlessly complex and convoluted.

    Can't love this game Is not about the graphic which in this day just the graphic count is about the story you have and the way you play is like living in the game, you can't access next level because is just a big big level or a big map were you play the action. If you don't play Half Life 1 you can't understand Half Life Opposing Force and Half Life Blue Shift.This game leave a lasting impression to me .
