    I remember shitting so hard over this trailer and what I wanted the game to be:



    I remember my first playthrough of Chrono Trigger. I remember how at the end, I freely and openly admit, I had a couple tears. Still the greatest game ever made.

    I remember getting Phantasy Star for my 9th Birthday. Ran my parents $100. That's how much the lil fucker cost at the time. Had to play through it the old school way. No internet. No 'helpful hints' in a magazine, no nothing. Was SO HARD it took me a solid 6 months of daily playing to beat it. The 3d dungeons didn't help. Some were big. Retarded big. I about shit when I finally beat it.

    [​IMG]

    I remember when I finally (and I do mean finally) got my Anathema/Benediction in WoW. My favorite item in an MMO. Still have it on my account. Was so difficult to get. Shame that game never kept it's original degree of difficulty for certain things.

    I remember first exiting the vault in Fallout 3 and just kind of thinking. "....Holy SHIT!" Those epic in scale sandbox games are still a treat.

    This, and I also remember losing over 100 hours of my life to this game. No regrets.


    I remember how epic this was at the time:





    And I remember the first time I saw this fucking thing:

    I've been trying to finish FF9 recently. Just started disc 3 after almost 40 hours.

    I remember playing Silent Hill 1 and being freaked the fuck out. Played it release day, so I was older by then. Still creepy as all fuck.

    Red Dead Redemption. The ending. Didn't see it coming. Was bummed.

    Yeah I don't remember that.

    I remember thinking Actraiser was a blast. Mix of making towns and sidescroller? I'm in. Toejam and Earl also.

    Learned my lesson after the sequel. Never again will I buy a Fable game. Pure tripe.
    Actraiser is still awesome. Sure, its pretty easy these days but back in the early days of the SNES it was pretty groundbreaking.

    I remember when I first heard about GTA1. I was in 5th grade and my friend Tyler was talking about it at recess. I liked what I heard, I rented the game and I have been a fan ever since. I remember when I first beat metal gear with the good ending it was an amazing achievement, I also remember when I first fought Vulcan Raven in the warehouse, I was scared shitless fighting him.

    That is my favorite FF game, I could never get past the final boss. I hope they release an HD version so I could play it on my tv properly. Also I remember getting to the crater in FFVII. quitting. Loading a new save and accidentally saving over the crater save. I never have beaten that game.

    I beat it twice, at least, the first time around. I think more than that but those two times were as close to 100% completion as you can get. All the weapons, maxed out mana, killed all the weapons, found all of the secret backstory.
    DL'ed it on the PS3 and almost completed it again, though not near 100%.

    I remember when jiggaboos were kept in thier place & you could bring your brand new console
    out of the store without being nervous about having your bag-holding hand torn off by one.

    Thanks, LBJ ....

    Remember when you played Morrowind for years and thought the sequel Oblivion was going to be the best game ever made. So you quit WoW and sold your character with hand of ragnaros.

    Then Oblivion comes out and has 3 voice actors for 200 characters, the game world is tiny, the character building/skills are dumbed down, the game ends with an escort mission, and vanilla creatures all lead to the biggest disappointment you ever had in gaming.

    Wow was Oblivion bad. It had promise. But just shit the bed hard.

    Speaking of dumb WoW. May go back to it at xmas when I get my new rig.

    I remember polishing off FF:T. Was such a perfect wrap up to that long ass game. Thank fuck there's been no sequel.

    I had a heavily invested character with a legendary weapon and sold it for a game that stunk. I was a stupid asshole who got tricked into thinking a company will always do the right thing.

    Also, I liked WoW back then, esp since I was king shit on that stupid server at the time.

    At least now I know better then to get my hopes up for any game. I always take the wait and see method, never pre-order anything, wait for a sale if possible.

    Thats what you get for quitting the game you knew and loved for hype over something you have never played before. You could have just deactivated your account and tried ES:IV before burning the house down. Hell, my necro is still waiting for me with his crappy mid 50s gear somewhere near that necro starting zone. I hope he misses me, he sucked.

    While it was a bit disappointing, I played the shit out of Oblivion. Never beat it, though.
    Of course, Skyrim kicks ass.

    Jeez fletch. Beat the shit out of him some more. The poor bastard.

    Only sold one account. Easiest $250.00 I ever made.

    I remember playing Inindo to the point I had every single province around Oda against him, but no one would pull the trigger. Annoying. Another long ass great game.

    Viewtiful Joe! Fuck did that knock me on my ass with how fluid and sound the gameplay was. So good.
