The title is simple enough. What would you say are your favorite video games?

Well, me being of the (apparently small) faction of gamers who would like to see gaming move more toward being interactive stories/experiences and works of art rather than simple products (sorry if that sounded pretentious), I'm a definite fan of studios/publishers like Irrational, Bethesda, Ubisoft, and Rockstar.

Right now, I have to say that probably my FAVORITE game I've played was Telltale's The Walking Dead. It was such an emotionally beautiful experience that I don't think I can bring myself to replay it, because my first-and-only playthrough just feels too much like MY experience.

Intellectually/thematically, another favorite of mine would be Irrational's BioShock: Infinite. If you've played it, you know why.

However, I have so many more that I can't even begin to list them all. But, some others include:

Fallout 3
Fallout: New Vegas
Red Dead Redemption
Grand Theft Auto IV
L.A. Noire
Far Cry 3
Assassin's Creed II
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
Assassin's Creed III
Heavy Rain
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Passage
Portal
Portal 2
Think'st thou heaven is such a glorious thing?
I tell thee, 'tis not half so fair as thou
Or any man that breathes on earth.

Not necessarily.

I mean video games that really just focus on story as more of an end, rather than the means to an end.

Basically, I kind of get slightly irked when people talk about games like a product, rather than an experience. Basically, I'd like to see the story and themes of video games to, ON THE WHOLE, take a spot closer to the forefront of how we evaluate video games, rather than just being one part of a game that comes behind technical specs.

I'm with you on stories. My favorites:

Legend of Dragoon
Final Fantasy VIII (I love them all, but this is my favorite)
Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross
Golden Sun series
Suikoden
Xenogears
Every Fire Emblem game
The Legend of Zelda Series, especially:
- Link to the Past
- Ocarina of Time
- Twilight Princess
Soul Edge, and Soulcalibur II and III
The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion and Skyrim
The Fable series
The Dragon Age series
Jade Empire
The Witcher (I liked II better than I)
Endless Space
Sid Meier's Civilization III through V
Age of Empires II and III
Minecraft

I've probably forgotten some.

Okay that is a good way to put it. I especially agree with the point about developers treating story like an integral part of the experience. Most of my favorite game really focus on story.

Chrono Trigger is probs my all time favorite. It is in my opinion, it shares the title of quintessential JRPG with Final Fantasy 6. At the time, it featured inventive combat with a good, sometimes heartwarming story. And like all games made by Square, the music kicks a$$. Final Fantasy 6 is up there for the same reasons.

Spec Ops: The Line. Fvcking great story. One of the best. My favorite thing about the game is that it is really an indictment of games like mindless military shooters like Call of Duty. Gameplay is meh, but I highly recommend it on the story alone.

BioShock and BioShock: Infinite. Some of the best video game stories ever. Both had great twists, interesting characters and great gameplay.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. The game made Star Wars interesting again. It really opened up the world and unleashed new possibilities. This game is a Bioware game, so it really rides on its story.

Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting. Pure nostalgia. I remember playing this game with my brothers. It was always real competitive and it was a big part of my childhood. My brothers still break out the game every now and then.

The Walking Dead Game. Pretty much what incompetentNinja said.

If I think of more, I'll add more. I can talk about video games all day.

Reciprocated. Chrono Cross had the best video game music of all time, in my opinion. Yasunori Mitsuda is a genius.

Majora's Mask?

Ehhh, I sometimes get semi-lynched for saying so, but it wasn't my favorite in the world. The time limit annoyed me, as it introduced another limit to Zelda game play which I just didn't like. I loved riding around in OoT and TP in a carefree manner, just exploring, solving puzzles, and killing things. It was very immersive, and the sense of urgency introduced in MM robbed me of that to a degree. I especially hated it when doing temples.

Am I gonna get lynched for saying that the Zelda games aren't really my cup of tea?

I mean, hey: the SNES was my first console, and Zelda was one of the games I avidly played, but still.

No we're not going to lynch you for that. We are going to burn you at the stake and spread your ashes so you can never come back.

I play that game multiplayer with my brothers. I love beating them almost every time. It's a strategy game, the whole series of C&C games is. Otherwise though, I don't play video games. At least I haven't in a few years.

I really couldn't say, it's been so long since I've played any Zelda game (I tried Twilight Princess, but it wasn't doing it for me). It's just the overall "feel" of the game. The whole thing--setting, style, etc. is just not my thing, particularly.

Same for Mario, to a lesser extent. I really liked New Super Mario Bros. for Wii, though. And Galaxy.

Civ V is my main form of communication with several college friends. One of my favorite games was when one guy I knew played as Boudicca and founded Judaism. Many Space Balls jokes ensued. 'The Druish Princess is amassing troops at my border!' 'HE SHOT MY HAIR!'

So did I. One of my favorites, in fact, so much that I almost consider it to be distinct from the series. The whole high-seas exploration vibe was excellently captured. I just have very, very fond memories of that game. And Zelda actually does something for once.

The cell-shaded graphics were a big part, I think. It bothered a lot of people for some reason, but I found it very interesting. Plus the fact that it deviated from the Zelda format so sharply probably upset some traditionalist fans.

COD4
Skyrim
GTA IV
The Last of Us
Pokemon Emerald
Pretty much any Pokemon game up to Diamond/Pearl
Super Mario Bros.
Super Mario Sunshine

I'm probably missing out on many titles, but I haven't played video games much in the last year. Many of them came to disappoint me, such as the COD series. The COD4 multiplayer was amazing, simple, and fun. MW2's overpoweredness and nukes were pretty fun too. Anything after that was crap. Same thing for the modern Pokemon games. They absolutely suck and are devoid of any feel. What would you expect, though. The first 150 Pokemon were actually well thought out.

Skyrim still ranks high on my list, but the story of The Last of Us is beautifully dark and emotional. It's up to par with the stories of To Kill a Mockingbird and And Then There Were None in they way they provoke literary discussion.

Well, of the games I've played:

The Walking Dead - It has been a wonderful experience, and if the ending hadn't been spoiled to me, I probably would of cried. Pewdiepie cried at the end, lol...

Skyrim - When I downloaded the game, I was playing it for weeks non-stop. Super immersive, awesome fantasy, expansive world and playing with the console was loads of fun.

And then one I didn't play:

The Last of Us. Sadly, I don't have a PS3 (fried the last one's laser), but if I did, I know I'd be all over this game. Even while watching someone else playing, it is an amazing experience. Gameplay is awesome, Joel is badass and Ellie is badass and hawt. Inspired me to write some zambie fiction in the future.

Other than that, I could mention a bunch of games I've spent a lot of time playing, such as Team Fortress 2 and WOW, but these don't really deserve to be my favs.

Starcraft 2 (Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm

I haven't really played many games so not much to work with
Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.
