Hmmm... let's see.
Gran Turismo 1 & 2 - Gran Turismo was one of the first games I got with my Playstation for Christmas one year when I was 5 or 6. I immediately fell in
love. I actually just finally bought a backwards compatible PS3 and, since all my old games are scratched up and don't really work anymore, I ordered
ALL THE GRAN TURISMOS from 1-6. I'm almost finished with the first 1 now, gonna play the second one for a while. The second one is possibly my
favorite out of the entire series. (that I've played, at least. GT 5 & 6 are sitting here begging me to play them.
) One thing about the first one
I really loved was the Dodge Viper. Keep that thing bone-stock and don't even upgrade tires on it- it wouldn't just drift, but rather float around
corners gracefully. If you so much as added one mod, you ruined it's godlike ability to slide through corners like a boss.
Metal Gear Solid - Never actually owned this game, but I borrowed it and loved it.
Command & Conquer Red Alert Retaliation - This was another game I got with my PS1 and couldn't figure it out at first, but once I found out the the
MCV could deploy into the start of a base, it didn't take me long to get the hang of it.
Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2 - Absolutely loved this game and the soundtrack.
Twisted Metal 3 - Got this game with my PS1 as well, and it was by far my favorite out of the entire Twisted Metal series. My dad loved playing TM 3
and 4 with me. Those are just memories I'll have to hold on to now... I'll never forget one day he came home after work, and he seemed kind of excited
to come to my room and ask if I wanted to play Twisted Metal... I said no (I was watching something on TV at the time) and he looked very disappointed
when he said OK and walked away.
I miss you, dad, and playing Twisted Metal with you.
Gran Turismo 4 - I wasn't entirely impressed with 3. 4 made up for that.
It just doesn't have that nostalgia feel that the first two games give
Metal Gear Solid 2 & 3 - I did like 2, but it gets kinda weird at the end. I'm still confused by that... 3 was amazing though, even the little details
like When you 'fight' "The Sorrow", you must face all the people you have killed during your time playing the game. The first time I played through, I
was seriously stuck in that river for 2 or 3 hours and I'm not even joking. In a second play-through, instead of finding out how I could kill
EVERYBODY, then leaving the area and coming back so I could do it again, I tried to go through it as non-violently as possible, and you don't spend
very long in the river if you do that. Also interesting was the detail that after you lose your eye, when you go into a first person view that side of
your screen is dark, making it harder to see to that side. It really helped achieve that next level of immersion.
Twisted Metal Black - I loved the characters and how it seemed so dark and post-apocalyptic compared to the other games in the series.
Burnout 3 Takedown - It was just a fun fast-paced racing game based on avoiding crashes and trying to destroy your opponents in spectacular crashes.
Decent soundtrack, too.
