Alright I'll jump on the bandwagon and list my favorite video games; but before that I should list the systems I had:

-Original NES
- Super NES
- Playstation
- Xbox
- Xbox 360
- PC

this list is in no order, just games that loved playing and if given the chance I would love to play today....

so #25

This game was awesome and I only came about it via a friends recommendation. I remember this came out around the time Metal Gear Solid was becoming very popular and a lot of people (fairly or unfairly) were comparing the two. I loved the story, the controls for the most part were good and the mix of mission types (shoot them up, stealth) kept me thrilled as a 12-13 year old. My personal achievement was finally beating the level where you could not get caught by the guards so you either had to sneak past everyone or silently kill them. A ton of fun, and if I recall correctly this is/was available as a classic game on the Playstation store

one of my favorite parts was using the taser; you could tase a enemy forever and watch them cook:light:

God what a fun game; I played this to death not only on my playstation but in the arcade as well. It is a shame the NFL has forced the game to be toned down today, but back in the day just having a player torpedo themselves at the ball carrier was just side splitting fun, not to mention being able to body-slam after the play was over. If I ever came across a large amount of money, buying a original playstation and this game would be #1 on my list

EA came out with their version of Blitz a couple years ago, it was ok but really watered down on the hits and tackles since the NFL is so anal about that shit; I wish Midway or someone would come out with a carbon copy of the old Blitz and even if they couldn't use the NFL teams, it would be a smash hit

I know a lot of people love the N64 version and I like that as well but my friends and I had our fun on the SNES version; simple and fun it was a awesome party game; nothing was more thrilling than getting a blue turtle shell and knocking the lead kart on his ass

NFL Blitz would be on my list too... such a fun game. It was good, simple, violent fun -- which is what we all really want anyway, right?

Super Mario Kart is another good choice, but adamclark52 is right -- no blue shells in that version.

I remember the lightning was the "ultimate weapon" in that one. I remember the feather too, which was so useless I don't think it made it into the N64 game.

One thing that always did piss me off about that game was the computer would always warp CPU characters to right behind me. I was so good at that game that I should have been lapping them on 150cc, but they never let me. Fucking cheaters.

So everyone remembers this one right?

:eyes:


no one?....ok

I recall going to the video store to pick out a game for the weekend and all the fun games had been checked out, feeling low I was about leave when I saw this out of the corner of my eye; not wanting to go home empty handed I chanced fate and tried it. Let me tell you it was a fuckload of fun

The best way I can describe B.O.B. is an Earthworm Jim clone; a shooter/platformer you as B.O.B. kicked some alien ass to save his girlfriend if I remember correctly. I only played it a few times but it left an impression on me

While it may not be Blitz, this was a hoot to play with my friends; we wasted many hours on this. There was hard tackling but the fun came in the moves you could make, mostly due to the walls that surrounded the field; tough pass to make? No worries just bounce it off the wall to your receiver. Almost to the endzone but the goal line is packed with defenders? Again just hop off the wall over their heads. Now as I recall Street came out with 3 more but I don't think I really got into them but the first one was a time killing favorite

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/1f/Guitar_Hero_Metallica.jpg


adamclark52's post in his top 25 game thread inspried me to this:

I told AC in his post that I preferred the Rock Band guitar over GH, but I give Guitar Hero II (and III, but not as much) credit for many, many wasted hours in college. Nothing like this had come along save going to an arcade. The pure fun of playing songs with or against a friend was so overwhelming. I felt the choices of songs in GHII kept things interesting and it really felt good to be able to process in levels, not that my fingers liked it;)

I also included GH Metallica on this list as I was thrilled to hear that one of my favorite bands was doing this. I could think of so many other bands that could (or still could) get in on a band specific title: Can you image a Iron Maiden GH or RB coming out? Slayer? Black Sabbbath? I believe a good % of the population would never leave their living rooms

While the GH/RB has really died down, I will forever hold fond memories of many GH battles in my dorm and the house I lived in

You know what's one thing they should have put into all the Guitar Hero and Rockband games? Open notes. A lot of Rock and metal music is based on open note chugging. Working those in would've made the game even better, especially for a person like me who's played guitar for twenty years and found that not having it over complicated some songs.

In the later games, there are open notes while playing bass. But I agree.

agreed; another thing I like about the latter RB titles was the freestyle or solo parts; I wish GH did that or even a separate mode where you could set the tuning and chords

I will preface this by saying stratgey games are my least favorite game type, not that I think they are bad or anything, I just do not own the patience to play them.

However....

Starcraft needs no introduction it is one the forefathers of gaming;just ask Korea. I can't remember why I got this game and was uneasy about playing it but what a fun time it was. The interface was simple, I learned the basics pretty quick. The story was awesome like a great sci-fi novel. I would play the campaigns 10 time over before steeping foot in online mutliplayer. I will say that in the latter levels I got overwhelmed by the resource gathering, making troops and keeping an eye on the enemy that I gave up and used cheat codes:eyes:.....I know

But all in all I really enjoyed the game, long with Brood War the expansion pack. In later years I found out about the countless mods created by fans and I found some of them to be amazing. Then finally after a long time Starcraft II: sons of liberty came out and well it was a great game, I felt like it didn't have the charm of the original. I wish I could play Heart of the Swam and the next one but I only have a laptop that is not built for gaming.

Starcraft was awesome. I remember playing it first year of college...on my laptop.

And don't feel bad, you're not the only person who had to use cheats to get through those last levels.

Well this one needs no introduction...

DN 3D was my first "mature" game in terms of extreme gore, profanity and nudity. My dad and I took turns playing and we both had a lot of fun. A couple years ago I brought this off Xbox live and enjoyed it more on a game pad vs a keyboard. I think my favorite parts included the entire second chapter on the space station and Duke finishing the final boss by taking a shit in it (I think it was the final boss, correct me if I'm wrong)

While there have been some great Star Wars games mentioned in other threads which will be on this list, I wonder if anyone has played this (I'm sure you have Adamclark52)

This game is set right after Episode II and features a special squadron of 4 clone troopers. No jedi in this one, just pure first person shooting goodness. The difficulty level takes a huge spike at the end but all in all a very good shooter. I think my favorite part was exploring the empty Republic star cruiser, they got the creepy atmosphere down well.

Adamclark already covered this in his list so not much to say beyond that I think this has to be my favorite star wars game; the story, the customization, the selection of weapons (Obi-wan would disagree, "So un-civilized"). The multi-player was simple and fun and since I didn't have LAN at the time I played vs. the bots which still a good time. This is what Star Wars games should be and while I have high hopes future games could be like this, I'm not putting a lot of faith in Disney.

I never got into the old school Ninja Gaiden but I discovered this via demo disc from Xbox Magaizine (my friends picked on me because I kept saying Ninja Garden :D )

Tough as nails but a great experience when you overcome the levels; I admit I had more controller throwing moments than any other game I played but because I love misery I kept coming back, 'cause well it is badass being a ninja.

So the unwritten rule of video game licensed for movie suck major ass correct? For the majority, yes....but Lego knows for the most part what they are doing.

The beauty of Lego games in general is they are quite simple to play and appeal to all ages and gamers; maybe because building Lego was part of childhood (not to mention stepping on a piece, a fate worse than death) or the adorableness of seeing your favorite characters as legos.

Anyway, Lego Indian Jones was major fun; the classic trilogy of movies was cinematic classic and the game does a great job of bringing you back in a fun way. Controls were easy, levels were straight forward with a simple puzzle here and there. I loved the fact the cut-scene had no voice overs just expressions. And my favorite part was the re-play ability; finishing levels, collecting coins (or whatever they were called) unlocked characters so you could go back and get the collectibles you weren't able to get the first time, driving that maddning lust to get 100% completion.

If you're an adult whose Lego adventures were long past or have kids who are starting it, Indian Jones Lego and the other titles are a sure thing for many hours of fun

While this entry is on the '07 version I think overall the NCAA franchise has done very well and I have enjoyed most of the titles put out by EA and I think in many ways NCAA Football is much superior to the Madden titles

I remember getting hooked on this version for two reasons: 1) the build your own team mode; while this mode was not new (I believe it was created two titles earlier) it was very much polished; At the time I had just started my undergrad studies at the University of Northern Colorado and the football team was not a Division I school but with create a school, I made my school plus a few others and it was a load of fun; the process was easy there was many options to build your school considering the limitations of the original Xbox compared to today.

2) Campus legend...finish high school, pick a college and make your way up the ladder to become the greatest college football player ever. A majority of NCAA Football titles had this mode, but NCAA 2007 had an interesting feature: when you choose a school, you also choose a course of study; I shit you not you got to choose around 20 real life courses of study, and in order to stay on the team you had to keep your grades up; as I was studying psychology at the time, I had my game character choose psychology...needless to say I barely keep my spot on the team because of average grades. This part of the mode was taken out in future release because I am sure players were upset that it was too real and they had to think. I thought it was a gamble to put it in the first place but I gave EA credit for trying something so outlandish in a sports game

:rocker: I've really been wanting to pick up a football game, and Gamestop has a lot of the older ones for only $0.99.

I don't remember which NCAA title I played, but it was also on Ps2 and I LOVED it. Tried playing the Madden of the same year and just couldn't enjoy it as much. Good to see some love for this series.

My favorite part of the NCAA series was the creation of a team and a player; I thought it was much cooler to join your favorite college team and play from being a freshman to a senior. I loved, loved the create a team, but I recall it went missing for about 3 or 4 games until 2012 when it came back, but it was all done online, which opened up more options on creating your team but I had shitty wireless internet in my apartment so it really was a disadvantage to players who didn't have internet access or slow connections which even today is still a possibility.

The most recent NCAA I played ('13) had the option to change around the conferences which was neat considering the amount of conference chance in the real NCAA and plus I was able to import all my created teams into a conference which was very cool

So once again the unwritten rule of a video game tie-in for a movie sucking major balls, I feel works the majority of the time, but not all the time

Here, the game is vastly superior to the movie (for those who didn't see the movie, you would think a Wolverine movie would be awesome but watered down action, horrid acting and a plot that comic book fans wonder if the writers were reading the wrong comic, but back to the game)

X-Men OW is simply one of the most brutal games I have played, and of course it helps being in control of one of the most violent comic book character with one of the coolest and deadly weapons. Here you have full control over his cawls, his healing ability and badassery and the game does a great job of making you feel like Wolverine and holds nothing back in the absolute slaugther of the enemies in the game: since words fail me to fully detail this, a video can


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OAivhoYuznY

The only downfall of this game is that it has to follow some of the stupid plot from the movie including the ending battle vs "Deadpool" But all in all a really fun, violent game

This is a new one it actually is not out yet but is due to be released on Steam sometime this summer

Bro Force is basically a Contara/metal slug type game, a side scrolling shooter, and the best part is you unlock "bros" cute takes on famous action heroes with their own weapons and power ups. I pre-ordered so I am playing the Alpha version and it is a lot of fun but quite challenging as it is one of those one hit kill type games. I highly recommend you check it out, you can play the online beta for free, once you try it, you will get hooked;there is already a ton of fan created maps and campaigns

Some game play by one of my favorite youtubers

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/6/6d/BioShock_cover.jpg

I have played a ton of 1st person shooters in my lifetime and while there has been a lot of good ones, Bioshock is one of those special games that has left an impression on me; lets count the ways

- The story/setting- I feel like most shooters don't put a lot of time/effort into crafting a story, just your standard "evil is taking over the world, or trying to destroy it go fuck shit up" But Bioshock took it to a whole new level me for me. The atmosphere is just fucking beautiful, a lot of time effort and creativity went into making the underwater world of rapture. It makes you feel like something like it could have existed; it's dark, creepy and all the little details are very pleasing. While I won't say the story is perfect, it is done well enough to keep you interested. I will say the choice mechanic of "good/evil" was a interest piece, I could never kill the little sisters for more Adam because of that ethical piece, I also felt like there was no major effect on the game.

-Plasmids: while not a new thing in shooters, I thought the addition of a plasmid power was a great way to make your way through the game and coming up with new ways to kill people; it was never dull to freeze an enemy and smash him to bits with a melee attack. With the selection of plasmids to choose from it made repeat plays more enjoyable

A quick not on Bioshock 2 and Bioshock infinite

-Bioshock 2 was good but I felt like it was a recycled game, outside of being a big daddy everything else was the same

-Bioshock Infinite was a great game as well, amazing graphics and the setting of up in the sky was cool, but I had trouble getting into the story and I actually never finished the game, due to selling my Xbox360 for much needed cash.

It is too bad the gaming studio that made these games is shutting down; I would have loved to see a game set in space (a rapture on the moon? why not) I think they could have made it great

In the spirit of baseball starting up again, I present the only baseball game I really got into

Ken Griffey Jr. was the shit back in the mid 90's and because of his popularity had a string of baseball games bearing his likeness. I fee like the SNES verison was one of the best sports games I have played, only surpassed by NFL Blitz

I remember a few fond memories playing this: 1) In order to master the game you pretty much had to play as the Seattle Mariners with KGJ since he had the best power, speed, etc. 2) Because this game was not a players assoication game, all the players names outside of Griffery were fictious and the game got creative with those names:

The Atlanta Braves are famous dance DJs, such as Sasha & Digweed whose real life counterparts are (John Smoltz) and closer (Mike Stanton). A pitcher for the team is named G. Park, presumably in reference to Atlanta's famed Grant Park whose real life counterpart is (Steve Avery). In addition, D. Crime and D. Neon likely refer to Fred "the Crime Dog" McGriff and "Neon" Deion Sanders, respectively.
The Baltimore Orioles pay tribute to Baltimore native John Waters with B. Divine whose real life counterpart is (Harold Reynolds), P. Flamingo, (Mike Mussina) M. Trasho whose real life counterpart is (Mike Pagliarulo), and H. Spray whose real life counterpart is pitcher (Jim Poole), as well as Waters himself standing in for Cal Ripken Jr.
The Boston Red Sox contain members from the show Cheers. Cliff Claven who in real life is (Scott Bankhead), Norm Peterson who is in real life is pitcher (Greg Harris), and Sam Malone who represents closer (Jeff Russell) are all present. Also included are Boston landmarks (B. Common who is really infielder (Luis Rivera), M. Harvard) who is really catcher (Tony Pena) and figures from early American history (J. Adams who is in place of (Billy Hatcher), J. Hancock who takes the place of (Rob Deer), A. Hamilton) who is infielder (Scott Fletcher).
The California Angels have famous actors on their team (F. Astaire whose real life counterpart is (Chad Curtis), H. Bogart whose real life counterpart is (Chili Davis), J. Wayne) whose real life counterpart is (J.T. Snow).
The Chicago Cubs has game director Brian Ullrich standing in for Ryne Sandberg. The bullpen has some seemingly generic names, such as P. Drifter, T. Yokel, and R. Steel.
The Chicago White Sox are former basketball players from St. John's University (M. Sealy, C. Mullin, M. Jackson).
The Cincinnati Reds are writers (B. Stoker, P. Dick, E. Queen).
The Cleveland Indians have famous actresses and glamour girls on their team. (A. Margret, A. Hepburn, M. Monroe, G. Garbo).
The Colorado Rockies contain famous names from horror movies (including G. Romero whose real life counterpart is (Kent Bottenfield), B. Lugosi whose real life counterpart is (Alex Cole), and T. Savini) whose real life counterpart is (Bruce Ruffin).
The Detroit Tigers are famous Motown singers, (A. Franklin whose real life counterpart is (John Doherty), G. Knight whose real life counterpart is (Bill Gullickson) and R. Smokey) whose real life counterpart is Gary Thurman).
The Houston Astros are cartoonists (G. Larson, W. Eisner, S. Lee).
The Kansas City Royals are based on U.S. presidents (the third batter is D. Ike, whose real-life counterpart is DH Hall of famer George Brett).
The Los Angeles Dodgers are based on punk rock pioneers from Los Angeles and other areas around California including Exene Cervenka whose real life counterpart is (Jose Offerman), John Doe whose real life counterpart is (Mike Piazza) and DJ Bonebrake of Xwhose real life counterpart is (Brett Butler), Poison Ivywhose real life counterpart is (Mitch Webster) and Lux Interior of The Cramps whose real life counterpart is (Eric Karros), Jello Biafra whose real life counterpart is (Ricky Trlicek), and Klaus Flouride of the Dead Kennedys whose real life counterpart is (Pedro Astacio), and Lee Ving of Fear whose real life counterpart is (Orel Hershiser).
The Milwaukee Brewers have a pitching staff consisting of superhero "secret identities" (P. Parker, C. Kent, B. Wayne), while their position players are fictional secret agents and detectives (J. Rockford, J. Bond, P. Columbo).
The Minnesota Twins are not named for famous sets of twins. The player's names are based on celebrities of various backgrounds, from actor Adam West (Kent Hrbek), guitarist Jimi Hendrix and pitcher W. Herzog.
The Montreal Expos are people from the 1980s music scene in Manchester, England, including members of New Order, The Smiths, and Ian Brown of The Stone Roses.
The New York Mets are based on punk rock pioneers from New York including Johnny Thunders whose real life counterpart is (Eddie Murray), Joey Ramone whose real life counterpart is (Jeff Kent), Tom Verlaine whose real life counterpart is (Bobby Bonilla), and Jerry Nolan whose real life counterpart is (Anthony Young).
The New York Yankees have the nicknames of famous Yankee greats, such as Bambino whose real life counterpart is (Danny Tartabull), and New York boroughs such as S.Island whose real life counterpart is (Spike Owen).
The Oakland Athletics apparently hired more authors with H. Ernest (he replaces Mark McGwire), L. Byronwhose real life counterpart is (Mike Aldrete), M. Twain whose real life counterpart is (Brent Gates), and L. Tolstoy whose real life counterpart is (Dave Henderson).
The Philadelphia Phillies feature a Rocky homage in R. Balboa (Darren Daulton) and A. Creed (Dave Hollins). They also have a Philadelphia landmark (L. Bell) and some of the musicians produced by Phil Spector (D. Love, B. Medley), as well as Spector, himself (John Kruk).
The Pittsburgh Pirates are named after characters from the soap opera Coronation Street.
The San Francisco Giants are members of Software Creations, the team that developed the game.
The San Diego Padres are based on punk rock pioneers from England including (Billy Idol, the members of The Damned, Johnny Rotten, and Sid Vicious).
The Seattle Mariners have Nintendo of America employees on their team, except Ken Griffey, Jr.
The St. Louis Cardinals are comedians (H. Moe is actually Bob Tewksbury, O. Hardy is famous shortstop Ozzie Smith).
The Texas Rangers, appropriately, have a Western theme (their best pitcher, T. Mix, "fills in" for Kevin Brown).
The Toronto Blue Jays are players from the Wigan Warriors Rugby league team (E. Hanley, M. Offiah, D. Betts).

3) I did manage to pitch a perfect game once and was the highlight of the year for me; too bad I was too young to try and record it or something

Like I said a great baseball game and since then I don't know no other baseball game I've seen/played has matched the charm of this

When my dad got this for me as a gift I was a bit skeptical because I saw it as a flight simulator and would be no fun at all. Well I was half right it was sort of a flight simulator but a whole lot of fun

You take control of the F-22, a fighter that was dubbed the future of American air combat but never came to reality http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2012/07/f-22-fighter-loses-79-billion-advantage-in-dogfights-report/

But at the time it was every boys dream to fly this thing and F22 Lightning was the closest thing you could get, and it was easy to learn and control the plane. The missions were pretty standard, go dogfight these guys, bomb this base, escort this thing. I think the best part was getting a hold of an atomic bomb and using it on your own base for the lulz

The Dead Space series is simply fantastic; 3 of 4 are on my list (I did not play the Wii version although watching playthroughs it looked interesting) so let's start with the most recent one

Of the 4 Dead Space Games, 3 was by far had the most complex story, diving into the origins of the nercomorphs and their place in the universe. DS3 to me was not as scary as the first one but the new features more than made up for it. Being able to craft weapons was such a blast to do coming with different combos to deal with your foes. I admit I got a little lost toward the end in terms of story involving the aliens who created the machine to fight the necromorphs and in some ways the story started to drag. However the ending was great and the DLC hopefully opened the door to Dead Space 4;.....unless it was all a dream, Issac Clark (SPOILER) :D

The first Halo game released for the Xbox 360, #3 picked up after the epic cliffhanger of 2. The story was nice, the co-op was fun as always and Halo 3 was one of the only multiple player games I played on Xbox live. But what I remember most about it is the special game fuel flavors put out by mountain dew:D

The first Dead Space was amazing as I will talk about in the next post, and Dead Space 2 did a great job of continuing the story

Set on Titan one of Saturn's moons Issac Clarke wakes up 3 years after the events of the first game with his mind wrapped, alone on a decaying space station with Necromorphs everywhere, and perhaps most important a voice; giving Clarke a voice after being silent on the first game was a huge gamble and it paid off as Clarke managed to become a solid character with his struggles with the marker in his mind his guilt over loosing Nicole and the horror of surviving the alien undead once again. I felt like DS2 was not as scary as the first one but the developers did a great job of not trying to copy the first and let the second become its own.

The only big issue with DS2 I think is that there is a ton of story thrown at you in waves about the Dead Space Universe where you got a small taste of it in the first one, leaving you struggling at times to keep up and toward the end I feel like it took a little bit away from the gameplay but not enough to ruin it

Back in 2008 I had gotten a new job and had some money I wanted to use on some new games for my Xbox360; while I had a few in mind, I saw this trailer on youtube:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RYaJCmJgb9A

I had never heard of Dead Space but this trailer alone hooked me into trying it out and man what a game

I am not generally a big horror game fan, I did play a little here and there (mostly resident evil) but never got into it. Picking up Dead Space and playing it was a fun but very creepy experience. The developers did a great job of producing a scary atmosphere; a voiceless character pretty much by himself fighting off what used to be the crew trying to say alive. While I loved when Issac Clarke got a voice in DS2, I think him being silent was perfect for this game as it adds to the dread of being alone surrounded by monsters. The sound team for this game should get a lot of credit for adding to the already terrifying setting that kept me jumping in my skin.

While the combat was great it wasn't groundbreaking (shot the limbs, ok that's fine) the weapons were fresh and I enjoyed upgrading and playing around with them. The story was strong but you had the feeling (SPOILER ALERT) that Nicole, the sole reason Issac is on the ship is long dead.

Again I do not consider myself a horror game person and I am sure those who are may not agree with me but I believe Dead Space to be one of the scariest games and a ton of fun to play. The success of Dead Space lead to a whole universe being created for it, and to me makes it one of the most important games of 2008

While I liked 3, I can see your point; 3 was not really scary at all, besides the short space levels, and the story did get really wacky at the end; the only saving grace was being able to craft your own weapons, and for me I just ended up using the pre-created weapons anyway

However the DLC which I did not play looks creepy as hell watching a let's play on youtube

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/5/56/Lego_Star_Wars-The_Complete_Saga.jpg

Already mentioned a few times in other user lists, this is imo the best entry in the Lego game collection. First of all it is well worth its price at the time of $40 as the complete saga give you all 6 movies with about 10 levels per movie, not including bonus levels. Second was the simple and fun gameplay young and old could enjoy and made playing through Episodes I-VI a huge pile of fun. Third was the co-op, again more fun with a friend. Finally was the bookmark of the Lego games, the extra stuff and the quest to get 100% on the game; sad to say finally getting to 100% was one of my life's best moments because while it wasn't hard or stressful, going back through the levels with different characters and new abilities was a hell lot of fun and made for awesome re-play values

Lego Star Wars is one of those games that if I have children I would buy a Xbox 360 or PS3 just so I could play it with my son/daughter, that is how great this game is :)

I've bought this game twice for two different systems for that reason. I had it for my PS3 and played it on my own years ago. Then when my oldest son started showing interest in games our Wii was the system we had on the main TV so I bought it for him to play on his Wii.

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/8/80/Halo_-_Combat_Evolved_(XBox_version_-_box_art).jpg

In late 2001 I was told by my dad that if I wanted a PS2 or Xbox for Christmas, pick one and he would get it for me; now at the time I had the Playstation One and logically I should have gone for the PS2, epsically since the Xbox was Microsoft's first real step into the video game system ring, so I'm not sure why I went with the you-could-kill-a-bear-if-you-threw-this-thing-at-it system but I did

Shortly after my dad also ordered some games as surprise gift; one of those games was something called Halo: Combat Evolved. I had never heard of it before and basically though well it's just another shooter I'll get bored of it within a few days

How wrong I was

Halo CE is basically I feel the closest to perfect a first person shooter could be. Everything about this game is awesome: The graphics, the gameplay, the story, the multi player, the music; everything clicked to help laugh the Halo franchise into what it is today.

I loved the story and loved even more going through it with a friend on co-op and the plot kept me interested. As Master Chief you felt powerful but not over powered. My favorite parts were the snow level (the real name escapes me right now) and the creepy as hell meeting the Flood

But perhaps the crown jewel of Halo CE was the multiplayer; before wireless internet and Xbox live, you could only play with people outside your house on LAN, which was a hassle so we just stuck with sharing a tv screen for the 4 of us. This was inn high school so on weekends we would basically play for almost 10 hours on the campaign and the mulitplayer, blowing the shit out of each other and just having a great time

This is a game I would be able to pick up today and still enjoy it as much as I did when it came out.
