    I'm not going to name a favorite ever. I'm just here to mention that a ton of guys seem to love light gun games. I wonder how many of you guys go shooting for reals? Me, I shoot competitively so a video game based on gunplay sounds like a waste of time.

    Actually, for my favorite game ever it's The Legend of Zelda. My mom and I spent all summer mapping every dungeon and the overworld. Found all items, both quests. Still have the maps, though my mom died in 1999. She never beat this one or Link to the Past because she didn't want to "finish" the games. Would get all the way to Ganon and restart. She also dumped my Nintendo Power strategy guide to Link to the Past in the dishwater while doing the dishes one day. Yeah, Zelda games give me the feels a bit.

    Man, there’s a lot of great games out there but I guess if I have to choose a favorite, for me the only clear choice is...


    Time Crisis

    This gaem? Lemme tell you about this game. This game is the first popamole game where you get to be the popamole. In an uncharacteristic stroke of genius, Namco realized there was no light gun games where the player gets to hide and pop out but that all changed with Time Crisis!

    The home version’s cover system utilized a button on the gun in lieu of the arcade’s foot pedal. It’s probably the greatest light gun game ever made and was a viable alternative to IRL shooting if you didn’t wanna waste hundreds of dollars and annoy yore neighbors like some kinda asshole.

    Elona, it ruined roguelikes for me because there's no reason to play any others while it exists, and the RP potential is boundless. The coziness of my goblin farmer's country estate, whiling away the days fishing and cooking and stealing god tier equipment from visiting adventures, will never be topped.

    Don't know if it's my favourite game of all time, but if I had only one game I could play forevermore; it would be BG1. Other games pull at different levels of interest though.
    Mechwarrior & Commander series: because blokes are interested in things.
    Shogun 1 & 2: because 1 was a great strategy game, and 2 was probably one of the greatest examples of a sequel building on/evolving on the first game I've seen. It also had culture and it was high functioning.
    Syndicate 1 & 2: as above, but with cyborgs. Syndicate Wars also had some top-tier writing regarding corporate espionage, and the science / biology of implants.
    Thief 1 & 2: Nailed atmosphere, playstyle, game got harder, character and story got more interesting.
    Deus Ex: Not as good as Thief, but almost for the same reasons.
    Assassins Creed, Ezio Trilogy: because I'm part Sicilean, the gameplay, culture, and story was fun. And the had some interesting swear words in there that I'm amazed made it in.
    Dawn of War 1 & 2: If you don't enjoy these games you shoudn't be gaming.
    Dawn of War Mark of Chaos & Chaos March: Fukk you, they were good games.

    All the usualy RPGs from Blackisle and Troika for all the known reasons.
