    I learned English playing this game, checking out forums, reading strategies, watching VODs of the tournaments, etc. I was so into this game , I used to download replays, observe other players, participate in clan tourneys. Eventually I got better at it, I improved my actions per second, learned to micro and macro manage units to the point where I beat my clan leader. I attended a couple LAN parties too. This game is awesome!

    This game has such a great atmosphere and a really weird but jolly cast. Even if you dont like point and click adventures, I highly suggest you to play this one. (But use a guide, some puzzle solutions are random as hell.)

    Spider-Man (PS1; Neversoft)

    My ultimate Spidey game from the year 2000. Oh boy, this was an enjoyable game! I beat it every way you could, got all the costumes etc. The black symbiote suit was the best because it had the infinite web thing. Then there were the collectable comics, which often only appeared if something special happened. I remember that the Scorpion needed to destroy all the furniture in Jameson's place for one comic to appear. Oh man, did I love this game. You could fool around and experiment in so many ways in so many levels. The bank heist in the beginning was really good for that, for instance.

    Continuing on nominating games that will probably never be nominated in any other lists...



  • @TokyoSlim Could you keep the Spidey info there with the title? I know it looks a bit dumb that way, but there could be some confusion later, as the name's only that.

    Best game ever, 10/10, better than ice cream. It introduced me to the SRPG genre while still being one of the best in it. Ramza is an incredible protagonist with different arcs and character growth, while avoiding some of the melodramatic tropes the main series is known for. The fact that I've praised this game several times on this forum and I'm still finding different ways to praise it speaks volumes.



  • I added FFVII a second before your post.



  • @Musou-Tensei Thanks, I hadn't caught that! All good now.

    A lot of games are jack of all trades, master of none. Warrior Within Is masterpiece from every point of view and panders to me in that way.

    Yeah, 3, I said it. It's my favorite game.



  • @Inustar Would you mind editing in Final Fantasy VII? @Musou-Tensei had added it in before my post and I hadn't noticed, guess my edit came in a little late.

    It is the game that changed me in many ways. It was a technical powerhouse at the time and showed me a new level of immersive worlds and storytelling within a game. It's a damn beautiful piece of art!

  • @SabotageTheTruth Instantaneous update :joy:



  • @Brannox Deleted mine to clear up the thread a bit.
