What games have been strong enough to make you invest in this expense hobby?

To start off, I remember being super young and watching my friend play Zelda ocarina of time. I had no idea what was going on but I wanted it. That was an incredible game. I remember I got to the water temple and I pushed a block onto this space and I thought I had done a game breaking glitch so I couldn't advance so I started over. I didn't even mind, I would just constantly play this game every few months. Best adventure ever. I hate puzzles. But this was a complete joy

Smash Bros Melee- This game improves on pretty much everything you could want in a fighting game. And there is a stupid amount of bonus things that you can add in. Brawl is just ADD with the shit it has. Best multiplayer game

KOTOR- Wow this game did pretty much everything right. The dialog was awesome. Your party talked to each other. It has a revolutionary PAUSE button. So many strategy games force you to do all this shit in real time. This game you could take things one at a time. I literally gasped when the plot twist revealed itself. You really feel for your party. The things they say are very climatic and downright interesting. The game is much more difficult if you want to be a good guy. So you feel like its the way the world actually works. Masterpiece. Best campaign

Gears of war- There was no other game that I enjoyed playing online to this. I would try to get each achievement that required 100 kills for each weapon. It was a new adventure each time I would try to base my game around one gun. I had a complete blast trying to get 100 chainsaw kills and 100 grenade tags. It was glorious when I would get 3 chainsaws in a row and the otherteam would just scream WOOOOW at the end of a round. Priceless online glory

Dad played Super Mario Bros. 3 like an addict. He fucked up those Koopa Kids so much. Then I started playing.

I found a Pokemon card thing on the ground while waiting for the bus one day. The next week I bought my first Gameboy and Pokemon Blue.

Cousin forced me play Zelda OoT when I was like 5. Gohma (first boss) scared the fuck out of me. I then proceeded to get a copy of Link's Awakening (which is the best in the series IMO).

So many classics.

Super Mario World, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Gran Turismo 2.

All the games back when games had good music. Seriously anything with good music makes it 10x better. That goes for music as well. Music with good music is 10x better.

I remember playing Sonic the Hedgehog on the Sega system. I got to the last stage but never beat it.

Let's not forget Green Dog either. That one I was able to beat.

Pokeman Red
Red Alert 2
Halo 1 + 2
CNC Generals
Call of Duty 2
Halo 3
Starcraft 2

each game kinda represents a different perspective on the subject.
pokemon and red alert were what set me up for later games
Halo and CNC were what really got me into console/pc gaming specifically, played them for years

Call of Duty 2 was the first game i played competitively in and made money off of. good memories from there. I still run a tournament for this game..

Halo 3 I played comptetivly for about a year, but with less success then CoD2. still alot of fun.

after a 6-8 month break of gaming, i picked up starcraft 2 and its great to be competitive about a game again. currently pushing top ranks in 3 different brackets Very Happy

Medal of Honor: Frontline was pretty good. Beat that one several times. Medal of Honor rising Sun was pretty good too. I beat that one co op with my dad.

Goldeneye though, is the main reason for my gaming habits today. Ohhh the memories

I'd prefer to just go and play the originals. I think the only one up till like the third racing one I didn't own was the third one.
