What video game/games that's had a big impact on you?
Mine would be,
The Getaway, old Medal of Honor's, GTA series (San Andreas in particular), Uncharted 2, Assassin's Creed II, old Pokemon games, Super Mario Bros (NES).
Andrew Ryan: I am Andrew Ryan, and I'm here to ask you a question. Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow? 'No!' says the man in Washington, 'It belongs to the poor.' 'No!' says the man in the Vatican, 'It belongs to God.' 'No!' says the man in Moscow, 'It belongs to everyone.' I rejected those answers; instead, I chose something different. I chose the impossible. I chose... Rapture, a city where the artist would not fear the censor, where the scientist would not be bound by petty morality, Where the great would not be constrained by the small! And with the sweat of your brow, Rapture can become your city as well.
I love the setting, gameplay and story. The only problem of the game is that it is too easy even on the hardest difficulty.
When I was younger (elementary, middle school), I was a lot more casual about games. It wasn't until this game that I really got into gaming. The concept of the game was simple, but it was so addicting; it was my crack. If we're being totally honest, this game was my downfall in my freshman and (early) sophmore years of high school. ;D
Pretty much any Super Nintendo game. The SNES was the first video game console I ever played on, but in terms of specific video games, the Donkey Country trilogy and Super Star Wars trilogy. When I was younger, I poured countless hours into those games.
Addicting, fun, and revolutionary to me.
Then with the PS2, Kingdom Hearts came along. That game blew me away. The concept, characters, and story were extravagant.
The games that had the biggest impact on me, though, was the Uncharted franchise. Drake's Fortune was the first PS3 game I ever played, and I was hooked. Everything about it was what I was looking for in a game. Prior to purchasing a PS3, I had taken a hiatus from video games, as PS2 games became sparce in production, and I really had nothing else to satisfy me. Uncharted was, and still is, everything. I'm still in awe by its stellar single players and addictive multiplayers. Just amazing.
The "Sly" series on PS2. IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sly rocks, I can't wait for Sly 4
I'm also really excited for the new Sly game. I remember playing those games when I was younger and thinking how much fun they were. I had no idea they were even making a fourth Sly until I saw your comment!
