Wow, forgot about that one... man do I miss it.

Did you ever find the glitch for the pirate's cave? If you smashed yourself into the wall repeatedly, you could sometimes glitch partially through for a milisecond to see the unfinished room at the other side.

Play Spec Ops: The Line. No, seriously, play it. NOW! It's probably still on sale on Amazon for crying out loud! I wish more games had balls like this game does, paired with some of the best writing, mechanics, and level design that's been seen this side of linear shooters.

Sadly, I never got to play that one - Played the sequel multiple times though. And played a little bit of that Island Stunt spinoff game...But only a little bit. Favorite of the old Lego games were Lego Racers 2 and Rock Raiders.

Speaking of which, there's another to add to the list: Lego Racers 1 & 2! Got them together at amazon a few years ago. Played it MP with my younger brother quite a lot for a while.

Not quite video games, but ever since someone posted that the Rock Raiders game was one of their favorites... It got me reminiscing about all of the RR legos I have in my room... Sadly I never managed to buy all of them (I had the big base, the smaller scooper and a small flying transport). Definitely one of my favorite series from Lego.

Advance wars 2
Sonic adventure battle 2
Mount and blade
Awesomenauts
Mass effect (only the first 1 the others were let downs)
Paper mario (first 2)
Terraria

Entire Zelda series
Armada (dreamcast)

There's too many XD

forgot to add borderlands and smash bros and castle crashers to the list :p

Yeah, the sets were just as good. The color scheme and style for building them just felt so well done. Prices dropped back when the series was ending production,  so my parents were was able to get most of them. The base is still one of my favorites though, and I love how it includes two of the buildings from the game.

Never thought of running into the wall repeatedly, I was too young.

On a similar note...Back when I played Lego Island 2 for the first time, I thought that games were like animated movies, only a different movie was made for every single possibility. So at one point I was stuck in a glitch, unable to get out from between a wall and a palm tree, and I was thinking "Why would they even make this possible?! It seems like a lot of work for something so stupid!" (Since I thought they actually animated that glitch by hand...)

Yah...I really had no idea how games worked back then xP

Huh, weird. It was my first instinct as a kid. Granted, that's still my first instinct when finding glitches. I'm good at finding them... or maybe they're just good at finding me...

I have never run into anyone else who has played this game! Mad props! It was one of my favorite games on the PS2! So delightfully quirky...

Anyway, I don't regret buying many games, but I'll keep the list short:
Kingdom Hearts (the original, just to be extra clear)
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Mass Effect 3 (don't be a hater about a twenty minute ending. It was such a good game)
Heavy Rain
Fruit Ninja (I. Love. Fruit. Ninja.)

I never understood HR in this lists. The basic idea might be good and the overall story sounds like it could be something but the fucking QTEs just destroyed everything before it took off anywhere.

....I never had a problem with the QTEs. They actually handled rather well, imo. The story starts out promising but sexist female character archetypes, stereotyping, and a horrible out of nowhere plot twist towards the end ruined a potentially great game. Not to mention a plot arc that just ends without ever being resolved.

Similarly I had no problem with the central mechanic of the game. >_>

I'm not sure how the female was all that stereotypical, well, much further than any other game with women in it, and I actually really liked the plot twist. I'm not saying I would give the story a 10/10, but it definitely held my interest and made me want to keep playing.

I also had a very very large problem with the way they handled the boss fights in Human Revolution. I built a character orientated in stealth and the first boss was just... utterly unfair to say the least.
If you take it as part of the Deus Ex continuity, Jensen is very sleek and inconspicuous. Makes you wonder why Gunter existed.

It's not about being too difficult or not it's about blatantly breaking the game-flow every couple of seconds slamming illogical button combos at you pulled out of thin air that make no sense whatsoever. QTEs are a poor excuse for lacking the skills to code a decent interaction system. Instead the focus is drawn from story and character onto a small screen trying to hunt down a stupid combo sequence. You can't perceive nor immerge one single bit into a game slapping you button combos around the eyes every couple of second.

I also played a stealth-based Jensen, and while the boss fights were very difficult, I didn't think they were unfair or impossible. As a stealth player (and especially if you play passively when "killing" enemies) you actually get about twice as much experience than a combat-oriented Jensen, which means leveling up awesome perks. In the final boss fight, I was literally immune to about three major attacks, such as the lightning shock for instance. As long as I was smart enough to bring a combat rifle with me at all times, I had no trouble beating bosses.

S.P.A.Z.
Addictive as hell and that's from someone who doesn't dive into space Sims or like the space genre very much however this game has made me change my mind and only for 3$, Gotta love steam sales.

I'm planning on getting that one. I've only once seen a copy of it at Gamestop, though.

Hhmm..

Seeing the lists of games here is starting to make me feel old....

Since my old time favorites tend to go back a way. Granted, the new games are visually a LOT better. But I spent the most hours on the oldies. The Elder Scrolls 1 has to be my all time favorite. I like the entire series, but that is the only one I actually took the time to finish. And with respect to multiplayer games, either Sword of Orion 1 for hotseat play, or microsofts Ascendency for online.

No idea if any of you even remember / know these though.....

Man, I feel OLD now....
