What's Your Favorite Game? (it can be anygame)

42 posts in this topic

Now that I think about Resident Evil 4 and how many people love it I am glad Capcom doesn't make another serious-style Resident Evil game with the decaying zombies, and not the RE4 brainwashed mongering zombies... Hah; beyond psychosis. Now that I think of it, the next best RE game I want to see is something really deep that actually can replicate the first horror at seeing zombies in the 1st two Resident Evil games ever created. It won't have that maggot-spam feeling you get in FPS/3rd person, like something fucking deeper than anything else. For some reason, the 1st Resident Evils literally was in touch with reality. If I was holding a real gun, I don't think I would UNLOAD like most people on the planet did in video games. Plus, the zombies walking so slow being able to take so many hits was just haunting. Life ran so slow, showing what limitations human beings always look to no matter how far our imaginations may make us believe we will survive... until we end up becoming one of them! The old camera views from the old Resident Evil games nearly approach something still yet to be seen, because it's difficult to grasp Resident Evil 4 was that great. Everyone who loved it must've been my age when I loved Perfect Dark and Starcraft.

Maybe my favorite game now is Starcraft II. It's difficult to elaborate, bearing that Zombie Panic: Source still holds beautiful days if I am good enough. It almost seems true that if you're good enough, greater times are ahead, where blue becomes experience instead of sadness. No wonder I love sadness and I am full of vengeance, because no one sees how deep blue can go...

Starcraft II may feel like a short game, but it's as fun as you can make it fun, just like how Willy Wonka sings about your world of imagination. When I first got to play it, I wanted to make sure all of my men lived. I now realize that would take a LOT MORE happiness and excitement, because I would have to play with a world of patience. Even without it, I feel like a different human being. With my typing skills, I can talk to people, even though I wish I had a good computer and microphone to exercise my leadership abilities using my mouth. It's all about the imagination and it gives me strength and tactics. Every time I discover a new tactic, it feels like a secret land across a long-feared area nobody crosses. Maybe some people get real about it's productivity and think it could have been better. They are always right, but what part of Stacraft II would have been much better? Would it be like Chess; how would the gameplay play if it were like Chess? Sure, it would be much slower. For what a game it is, it might as well just be a choice of style to play, along the regular mining and developing a base. Therefore and technically, it is possible Starcraft II could be twice the game it is, if not just a third, but nothing is stopping Blizzard from their own choices on what games to create.

For now, it doesn't seem like enough gamers get to know of it, just like not enough know about No More Room in Hell. There must be thousands and thousands of players who STILL don't know what mods are for Steam/Half Life games! I remember the first discover of mods for the 1st Half Life. I grew interested by playing the mods that came with Half Life/ Opposing Force, and Counter Strike. There came a day of associating with reading on the internet that I discovered mods... and there were so many mods to play. I haven't looked into Half Life 2's mods, but I am pretty sure there aren't as many created, since a lot of old developers may have moved onto to different things in life. I could be a developer, and a fast one, too, but as I don't see it, I am now 24... I also enjoy activities other than video games, YET I slowly realize life is purposely harsh so that you choose few things to do, or people believe it's supposed to be that way.

So for now and while I don't have good money, I am void of supporting life, but I will, as always, take care of myself and be vigilante for danger. Video games are great, but I guess I never really earned a really good computer. That's what makes me different from people who have a REALLY GREAT gaming computer, but don't appreciate what it is to die in a video game, yet still be alive in real life. I breed like Gremlins in water if I get a good computer.

Gran Theft Auto seems like it still has a very big future, as they could also create a system for server hosts paying a nice fee for being able to create his/her own city. All cities have to be permitted just like a company is hiring a mapper. The greatest gift to a winner of GTA is to create his/her own city and destroy it in however way he desires, just like Sim City. So if the server is popular, he can always infest it with zombies, or may even be aliens. By then, crime has to be controlled or else it may or will create one hell of a criminal. Usually it's one person who does obscene shit, or will change the population, depending on how popular it gets.

As for Resident Evil 1, I never really got into it either. It just remember viewing videos from Gamespot in anticipation of its release for Gamecube. It was because of playing the Resident Evil 2 on Nintendo 64 with my childhood friend Marcus at Eldin's house, who lived right in between us two. That would have been a perfect reason to fuck like a sandwich, as they both seemed to be willing to. Anyhow, I laughed really hard while we watched Marcus play RE2. So thanks to the thrilling moments of that game, I laughed at something so funny, yet too stupid and embarrassing to laugh at that I tried lying to them on what it was, and now I forgot why I laughed. So here I pledge to you that we have many opportunities to change using our memories of the past they, as in people, wish to forget. I had already played Resident Evil 2 around that time, but it was a really cool idea to play it with those two friends, rather than just my brother(s),

Resident Evil 1 or 2 yielded to the realities that fear strikes away our ability to think and it's another reality to unload a semi-automatic pistol quickly in front of a once-human flesh-eating zombie, on the contrary to target practice. The only things unrealistic is how the virus spread city wide, turning almost anyone into zombies. The only ways that could happen is if the virus made people infect each other before actually changing into a mobile rotting corpse, such as having a involuntary desire to "accidentally" scratch someone, leave saliva in highly germinated areas like a kitchen, and all other ways possible. If the virus was that contagious, real-life people would have way more to worry about rather than just killing/running away from zombies.

The only things that brought Resident Evil to life were the puzzles to be solved, as if you were a nearly psychic detective who can tell when secret passages are abroad, not taking the image of a happy, divine society, brought by some od of riches crumbling into a darker reality that rested deep within ourselves: the need to feed. That is where the sewers of the human mind reaches the top floor and into the attic of humanity. That's what Resident Evil is missing: Something kind of religious, as how an intelligent preacher/pastor would describe zombies, but with little religious pun as possible. It would nearly be as classy as Catholicism, but it's still problem solving, decision making, and fates to wage among a still-social environment. Then, comes the zombies to shoot or bludgeon. They shuffled slowly, but surely towards you beyond your flesh and bone, as you tried to keep them away. The only thing that gives me faith for realism of zombies is that they first are like rapid chimpanzees, since they are closer to the human genome, but then slow to a near invincible walking corpse. All those diverse zombies and their moans remind myself as the vampire in Conker's Bad Fur Day, tantalizing at the sound of wolves howling: "The sweet music that they make." What was once a horror, became an adventurous reality to face. The twitching corpses full of bullets; will they grab at my feet? All the little things Resident Evil 2 had to offer made it come to life!

i'd say i am with some games but it's not really graphics blindness...stylized games just hold up longer and those that try to look realistic can look a lil silly as time goes on. super mario world still looks delightful, silent hill however....

i just can't get immersed properly is all.

Well you can nab it at Gamefly for like £2.99, if you're interested

Hmmm, in that case, I'll be a more thoughtful about this one...

No More Room in Hell

Perfect Dark 64

Goldene Eye 64

Starcraft: Brood War

Empire Earth

Need for Speed: Underground 2

Lego Island 4 Real

Tribes

Tribes 2

Starcraft II (for mainly a map or two, the campaigns, and the fucking reapers with bombs like Indians and torches.)

Counter Strike, dawgs, for real! Without all the clutter and shmaltz, it's pretty legit for thinkers.

Gran-Theft Auto for the utter 2 free 2 play without wreckless driving gameplay.

They Hunger

Resident Evil Gamecube remake (for the intense graphics). They should go back to that, but triple the graphical effort, and an involuntary rotator/zoom. Let the game fill you with horror like that! A god damn evil of the residence! Helpless individuals made equal on an all new level!

So much for only naming one favorite game of all time, time to post my list too!

  • Rise of Nations: It's Civilization but in RTS form.
  • Freelancer: This would be my favorite game of all time, if Microsoft didn't downsize its scale. It was a really fun space free roaming game.
  • Ghost Recon: I know the first one was "Rainbow Six in a Forest" but that's all I needed. It was simple and intense. The later games got a bit too much for me with the gadgets and stuff
  • Metal Gear Solid: The first one was a nice simple Stealth-Action game that made you feel like an awesome 90s action hero. I like the other ones but this takes the prize since it was straightforward and not that insane (aieee MGS2)
  • Ace Combat 04: I grew up around airplanes, and I loved this one because of its atmosphere, the gameplay, and the fact that it wasn't too overly dramatic
  • Mass Effect Trilogy: I love sci-fi games and RPGs, and although it ended on a weird note, it ranks high in my personal list
  • Resident Evil 2: I actually played this in '09 on the PSP, but it was still terrifying and intense on the small screen w/ earbuds
  • Fallout 3 or New Vegas: It's hard to choose between the two. NV had better gameplay and writing, but FO3 had 'better' environments. I had a lot of fun as the Courier but I had a better RPing experience as the Lone Wanderer
  • Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic: This game made up for the SW Prequel movies.
  • Halo Combat Evolved: This was THE killer app for Xbox, and I had quite a bit of fun in it. Loved the co-op and split screen multiplayer.
