During the mission ‘Tunnel of Death’ in GTA 4, I had one of the most perfect moments in video game history. When entering the truck at the start of the mission the song ‘Jailbreak’ by Thin Lizzy literally just started playing on the radio and it could hardly have set a better tone in any game I’ve played before or since then.
I love the Final Fantasy series, but I hate that I feel like I can’t share it with anyone. When I hear people talking about FF I no longer feel like joining in on the conversation. Why? Because the worst gaming fandom I’ve ever experienced is that of Final Fantasy. You just can’t have an opinion about anything, and you’re always hated for your favourite title or character in the franchise.
The combat system and the graphics are pretty darn bad in Summoner, but it’s still one of my most favorite games because the story, characters, and music were just so brilliant to me. Maybe you can consider it a guilty pleasure.
I think my favorite thing about The Legend of Zelda series is how awesome their storylines are. All of my Zelda games have had many replays because I feel like each time I play them I’m re-reading a favorite book or re-watching a favorite movie all over again. The difficulty of the games rarely has impressed me, but the stories and music will never get old and will never cease to bring joy to my soul, and that is why they will always be among my favorite video games.
Sometimes I wish Square Enix would have named every Final Fantasy game different, so the hate fans give between all of them wouldn’t be as huge, like which FF is the best, or people who haven’t played FF wouldn’t have the lame excuse that they haven’t played it because of the fanboys/girls, or that it has too many to start with it now, as if they would be connected with each other.
I just can’t get over how good Oblivion was. Morrowind was great, Skyrim was greater, but they all fall when it comes to Oblivion. I still get a bit sad inside when I hear the music, because I know I can never experience the game like I did on my first playthrough.
The first time I played Ocarina of Time, I was 5 years old. When I got to Hyrule Field, and night fell, the Stalchildren scared me so much that I didn’t play (and finish) my own file until I was 10 years old. I spent those other years wandering my uncle’s 100% save file.
I liked Tales of Symphonia okay, but with Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door and the Skies of Arcadia remake to compete with, I don’t get why people seem to hail it as the second coming of RPG Christ on the Gamecube.
I just remembered this game and wondered who else actually enjoyed it.
I have the biggest crush on Cecil Harvey.
