    This, but for Persona 3. I loved both titles to death - I'm a HUGE Atlus fan - to an obsessive point almost - and the SMT series (specifically Persona 3 and 4) is what got me on to them. Persona 3 just resonated with me - the music, the characters, the atmosphere - everything. I love Dig Dug, I love Age of Mythology, and I love Wolf of the Battlefield, but Persona 3 is just....I can't get enough. I think I put about....350+ hours into the Persona series alone, and I loved every second of it.

    Not saying I don't love P4 - both Persona 3 and 4 are on my top ten list, but P3, for me personally, is just insurmountable.

    Hm... Impossible for me to actually choose one game, so, I'll list the ones I treasure the most, and that will always have a special place in my heart.

    - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of time (Fine, kill me, cause it was obvious)
    - Transport Tycoon Deluxe (My first ever strategy game)
    - Freelancer (Oh, my crush, the space. Such a giant universe in such a small game. And so much freedom. And such deep story. Beautiful game)
    - Grand Prix 4 (Right... probably the only racing game that keeps on being on my hard disk no matter how many times I format it. Not a big fan of racing games, but I'm a F1 fan, so, I always mod this one with the latest cars and drivers and have fun for at least a year)
    - Super Mario Bros. (Man, I still remember that birthday when I got a NES as a gift. Although SMB was my first meeting with the video games world, I was still good enough to beat my father round after round... you know, in a race of who advances furthest without losing all their lives)
    - Excitebike (No comment, I was, and still am, addicted to this game)
    - Digimon World 3 (Dunno why, but I still think that this one is far better than any other Digimon or Pokemon made so far)
    - Luigi's Mansion (The one game that made me actually love Luigi)
    - The World Ends With You! (Which was actually the one RPG that made me stop hating RPGs... though I still hate most of the PC RPGs... dunno why)

    That's it, I guess.

    I was just about to respond to this and then I realized that I actually made this thread. Two years ago. Holy shit.

    I'd still say 007 Nightfire although there's a few others that just made my childhood (namely Star Wars: Clone Wars, which has no relation to the cartoon series ironically).

    Now that's easy to answer: Terranigma!
    I have yet to encounter another game, that draws me in as much as Terranigma. I mean, the story, the graphics, the gameplay, the music.... I still play it from time to time (on my SNES of course).
    I loved it already, when I was at a friend who played it while I was just watching. Then, when he let me play it, I fell in love with the game and was really happy when another friend wanted to trade his Terranigma with my Harvest Moon. That was the best trade I ever did. [​IMG]
    The only thing missing tho, is time travel.. But then again, it would probably be too much for me.. [​IMG]

    My favourite would have to be Breath of Fire III. The music is great, the story is perfect and I love dragons! Been playing it since it was released on ps1

    TimeSplitters 2 and Future Perfect; First person shooting at its finest.

    To quote from an article I read a couple of months ago: 'You haven’t played a first person shooter until you’ve stood at the top of Siberia’s Oblask Dam, defending it with a Minigun from a horde of exploding monkeys, deployed by the Russian Mafia who want the Dam destroyed.'

    Timesplitters 2 and Timesplitters Future Perfect. Though I think FP was a better game (One of the best FPS campaigns ever, seriously), I sunk hundreds of hours into both of these games. They are both classics, and it's a crime that more people don't know about them. (Also, I love my 360, but seriously, backwards compatibility doesn't support Future Perfect? Are you kidding me?)

    Besides that, Mass Effect 2, probably. Such a great game, with a (mostly) great cast of characters and an intriguing plot. March will not be here soon enough; I need ME3 now, damn it!

    Holy shit. Nice to see I'm not online on this one.

    I can't choose one so here are my favourite games:

    Super Mario World - One of the best platformers ever and my favourite Mario game.
    Sonic 1+2+3+K - I prefer them over Sonic CD.Sonic 2 introduced me to Sonic and Sega Mega Drive.
    Call Of Duty 2 - Best FPS game i've played.
    Final Fantasy VIII - I liked the junction system and the story.
    Final Fight 1+2+3 - I think the 2nd one is the worst of them,but it's still good.
    No More Heroes 1+2 - The best Wii games i've played so far.
    Pokémon Platinum/FRLG - Platinum introduced me to this franchise,but i can't choose between Ptt and FRLG because the GBA ones make me nostalgic because i watched the cartoon when i was a kindergartner.
    GTA:SA - I had so much fun playing this,and it's much more fun than GTAIV.
    Crash Bandicoot trilogy - Easily the best games on PS1.My brother and me used to rent the 1st one so much till we got the PS1 modchipped.
    Um Jammer Lammy - BEST.RHYTHM.GAME.EVAR

    Might have said this, but The World Ends With You.

    Top 6 (Can't decide the final four, In Order:)

    The World Ends With You - Not everyday a game changes how you look at the "world"...
    The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - The game was epic in ways not imaginable.
    Beyond Good and Evil - Tear Jerker Ending, my firends.
    Pokemon: Diamond Version - Although I prefer Sapphire, I had my best memories with Diamond!
    Advance Wars: Dual Strike - First DS Game, Awesome DS Game.
    GoldenEye 007 - What can I say? That game was kick ass, no matter what YOU think [​IMG]
