It doesn't have to be Pokemon, it can be something like Kingdom Hearts or Skyrim. My favorite is Okami and its sequel, both stories are so deep and touching at times and I got attached to the characters really quickly and I loved the music and boss themes. So what are your favorite games?

Huh, didn't expect anyone to hold Okami as their favorite game considering all its glaring flaws.

Anyway.

I've already explained in detail so many times why but to keep it short:

Amazing gameplay
Fantastic level designs
Well hidden secrets
Perfect controls
Clever puzzles
Great production value
A lot of replayabilty

My favourite video game isssss... Tales of Vesperia:



Well, I actually recommend playing the PS3 version (even though it's Japanese only), since the one for the Xbox is the Beta version. But, even the Beta version is pretty good! It has a nice battle system, memorable characters and great graphics alongside a good story.

Shout outs go to:

Tales of Abyss
Tales of Symphonia
Persona 3/4

All these games I never heard of before.(Other than Tales of Abyss, and Persona.) Yeah, Okami has its flaws here are some memorable ones:

Toby-The last and most annoying blockhead. I missed him already when I killed him.
Ice Ability was useless, luckily Okamiden fixed that by making ice the same as water
The long, annoying, boring, intro. At least the Wii version fixed that by adding a skip button.

Those are small compared to the real flaws. Excuse me for using Legend of Zelda as a comparison here, but the game was inspired by it after all.

The dungeon design is bad. Maybe I'm setting the bar too high because Zelda's dungeons are very very brilliantly design. Okami's dungeons, in comparison, fall flat. The puzzles sucked too.
Bland overworld and boring side quests, somehow even worse than Skyward Sword's. (Which I actually didn't mind much, just because I did play Okami before it so it was acceptable in comparison.)
The game is like 60 hours long. It drags on way too long and overstays its welcome.
PADDING PADDING PADDING
The combat is bad. Maybe it's the Wii version, but it really is terrible. Unbelievable given that this is a Kamiya game, who's a master at combat systems.

It does right with the production value, story, characters, music and art style and as a fan of Japanese mythology that's enough for me. That doesn't mean the gameplay itself isn't filled with so many flaws though, unfortunately. It's a pretty mediocre Zelda game, and this is coming from someone who doesn't even like Zelda much. Oh, though, I gotta give the nod to bosses here, they were pretty good from what I remember.

Oh whoa we already topped Okami here.

But I'd rather not badmouth some people's favorite games here because I'd feel like a jerk, but I am genuinely surprised at the choices. Of course, everyone is entitled to their opinion, so I hope I don't bring down anyone with what I said.

What, that's nothing compared to the youtube trolls on chuggaaconroy's channel. I liked the dungeons because unlike Zelda, you have to use powers you get earlier in the game and in Zelda you use pretty much one weapon or power for one dungeon and you never use it again pretty much. I never found the dungeons to be bland because you're inside the water dragon and is that uncreative? Anyways, if you watch chuggaaconroy, you know the trolls I'm talking about.

So much complaining in such a simple, happy thread. It takes a lot of guts to talk smack about somebody's favorite game.

Favorite game...Star Ocean: TTEOT. I've played through it at least 20 times. When I get bored with video games in general, I delete my Battle Trophy data and play through it 3-4 more times to get it back. I've done every challenge that I can think of from solo runs to level 1 playthroughs to only using Battle Skills. It's definitely got my favorite combat system out of any game I've ever played. The plot's alright. It's a nice chronological end to the series. Also it's got Freya and you don't know Hell until you've tried to fight Freya.

I don't care what anyone says. Fanboys praise this game to high heaven and trolls rip it apart.

I grew up with this game. I was around 8 or 9 when my cousin gave it to me, and I played it with my brother until I reached a certain point where we just couldn't continue. Although I was too young to really grasp the story... I felt a strong connection to it. The graphics, the battle system, the Materia system, the music... oh my god, the music. I remember playing Smash Brothers Melee while listening to the world map music. I would have the sound for my PS2 plugged in, and the Gamecube would have the video plugged in. I would park my party in the world map and listen to it while playing. I would enter a battle and do nothing just to listen to the battle music.

Everything about this game I find perfect. The storyline had the right amount of everything. I connected with every character, and I felt like I was a part of the journey. I remember crying my eyes out in the scene that everyone should know about. I didn't like Aerith any more than Tifa (in fact, I MUCH preferred Tifa; I thought her and Cloud held far stronger chemistry due to their history) but I still liked Aerith. It made me despise Sephiroth.

Every time I play through the game, I notice something I didn't notice in a previous playthrough. Little tidbits about the translation, real world connections, cut data... something always intrigues me about the game, and playing through it every time is still a unique experience.

Sure, it has it's flaws. Every game does. And even if I take off the rose coloured nostalgia goggles... I believe it's perfect in every way shape or form, and I have yet to encounter a game with such emotion and character. This is my favourite game of all time, and it will be forever.

Don't even get me STARTED on this game. I spent WEEKS tracking it down, until it popped up in a local Gamestop.

I love this game... I really need to set some time to play through it. I remember playing through it when I was a lot younger and I loved it almost as much as FFVII, but I think the fact that there were so many endings made it feel like an incomplete experience. But still, amazing!

I will forever love Ratchet and Clank 2. I like the humour in the game (sure it's cheesy, but it works), the gameplay and the story...also it's one of those games I bought numerous copies of.

Same with me too! It's my fave of the Ratchet & Clank games and I found it easier than the other two R&C games I played. I even still sometimes do those challenge mode restarts after finishing the main story and I still manage to breeze through it.

Not including any of the Pokemon games..... the only other game I do play once in a while, more like 3 times a month now is Sim City 4

3 times a month, not that I get bored of it, I just don't play that game too often now, I also play the Pokemon games the most. I remember I would play that game 3 hours every day, letting my imagination and creativity run wild, every new download from Simtropolis or SC4Devotion would make the game play much more fun than before - I don't plan on buying the new Sim City game [from the reviews I have read, and the YouTube vids I seen - the new game looks like its really really bad - all the great stuff is gone - everything that makes Sim City game fun is taken out].

Hello! ^^ I'm here to share the joy and hopefully pique your interests in some of my favourite video
games. ( ´ー`)フ I play all these on the ds because it's the only console I have! ^^

I'll hide the list in a spoiler because I'm afraid it'll be too long heheheh. c: I'm sorry I don't know what
categories they fall under but I think it's something like this.

Spoiler:

RPG
- Digimon World Dawn/Dusk
- Digimon World Championship
- Disgaea
- Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 1/2
- Dragon Quest Sentinals of the Starry Skies
- Kingdom Hearts Re:coded
- Pokemon Series
- Pokemon Conquest
- Shin Megami Tensei Devil Survivor 1/2
- The World Ends With You

Puzzle
- Professor Layton Series
- Touch Detective


I roughly play the same types of games but in my opinion these are extremely good. I'll write a bit
about Devil Survivor and The World Ends With You (TWEWY). Oh and I'm not good at pinpointing the
good points but here are my feelings pertaining to them? I'll try not to spoil them! (/ °∀°)/
(sorry I can't post pictures atm)

Devil Survivor
You play the protagonist and one day something happens, leaving you a demon summoning app in
possession. With this app, you have to face human's trial for survival in seven days, defeating a
septentrione (boss) each day. -sorry for being brief it's to avoid spoilers-

Along with the plot, there are interesting side stories and you have to interact with other characters
to raise their affinity with you, unlocking various abilities. You can also fuse demons to create more
powerful ones and bid for them in auctions. The music is cool and there is an anime based on the
game too! ( ' ∇ ' )ノ

TWEWY
You play a guy called Neku Sakuraba, who doesn't like the world and prefers to keep to himself.
Suddenly you appear at the heart of Shibuya. Everything appears normal except.. nobody can see
or hear you. You later discover that this is some sick game of the reapers where they try to kill you
within seven days and survivors can return to the real world.

The development of the game is superb and the music is addictive too! The game doesn't get boring
because different partners have different styles of fighting! Plus, the plot really gets to you and
will definitely leave you longing for a sequel. I think it touches a bit on self-discovery and is really
quite inspiring if you ask me.

Wow this post turned out really long I'm so sorry! And I also apologise if I don't really show the true
awesomeness of the games because I'm no good at promoting. But yup, I hope someone who passes
by decides to give the games a try and who knows, you'll be playing it non-stop!! (^ー^*)ノ

I can't decide if it's Golden Sun (first two games) or Radiant Historia

Golden Sun:
- my very first RPG (besides Pokemon)
- long and well written story
- good looking graphics (considering the fact that they are GBA games)
- cool characters
- cool soundtrack (Sakuraba did a really great job)
- interesting batlle system (even though it's one of the most controverse parts of the games, besides the walls of text xD)

Radiant Historia:
- beatiful graphics
- really great soundtrack
- a fun battle system
- some really interesting characters
- well done time travel mechanics
- this game made me complete everything it offered

Other games: FF6, Morrowind

For me It´s Kingdom hearts 2 or Skyrim Its hard to decide.

But First here are the things I liked in Kingdom Hearts 2.
- It has a amazing story.
- Even if you didn´t playd the spin-off games (like me) you can just jump right back in the story.
- It has a great battle mechanic that allows planed battles as well as action.
- It Improved itself from the first game and made itself even better.
- you got to visit old worlds and new worlds.
- Also they accomplished to put two completly different universes together and made it work.

The reasons why skyrim is a great game should by now been known.
- Great Story.
- Beautiful environment.
- Lots of side-quests.
- Many places to explore.
- Great DLC-Content.
- And almost endless play-time.

But if I have to choose It will probably be the Kingdom hearts series. These games were my childhood and I was so excited when I saw the trailer for Kingdom Hearts 3 at E3.

Other Favourite Games: Okami, Final Fantasy 4,6 and 12

Yeah I'm not going to argue about games because there's a HUGE storm and it's creeping me out. I normally don't get scared by storms but the thunder sounds earth shattering. Anyways, another game that I took a liking to is Ocarina of Time(Legend of Zelda) The graphics were amazing, and the music sounded so nice and stuff and overall just awesome. Yes, skyrim is known exactly for those reasons which is why I love it. And I like pickpocketing people.

Until something else can completely blow me out of the water, I'll always say that Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is my favorite video game.

It's hard to believe that even though it was released more than 20 years ago now (man, that makes me feel old...), but it's still just as fun for me to pick up and play now than when I first tried it as a kid. It has very simple controls where you really just need one button and the d-pad, which means almost anyone can pick it up and start playing. It also has a very catchy soundtrack that fit well with the levels, and can easily get stuck in your head for days.

Even to this day, I'll still play the game every once and a while- either on my DS or just through an emulator. I don't think there are any games that have come out over the past few years that I can still see myself playing decades down the line like I do with Sonic 2.

I've had to narrow it down a few:

Super Mario Galaxy
Super Mario 64 DS
Professor Layton and the Lost Future
New Super Luigi U
Animal Crossing: New Leaf

There are many, many more, but these are my top favourite games ever.

I'm going to go with Final Fantasy VII. It was my first RPG and it has always held a close personal spot in my heart. I remember watching my older brother for hours and when he let me play it I was always so confused with the game, overwhelmed. But I still enjoyed it greatly.

It was not until my later years would I truly appreciate everything about the game (once I came to understand the games workings).

At 19, I had beat the game, got all the Level 4 Limit breaks for everyone except Aeris, bred a Gold and Black Chocobo and most importantly, got the Knights of the Round Materia.

But, the biggest problem is, when you're done with all the stuff above, there's really no other reason to play.

But anyway, yes, this game is my favorite among every game I've ever played.
