Is there a game you personally thought "so close to my perfect game"?

Dragon's Dogma, Super Mario World, Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, Saints Row 2, The Darkness, Chronicles of Riddick, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and it's looking like Dark Souls.

I like large worlds and the illusion of as much freedom and options as I can get.

KotOR2 for me. Not that the game didn't have its flaws, but that game really drew me in. I could play that game over and over and not get bored of it.

As far as this gen goes, I'd say Fallout: New Vegas. I've poured hundreds of hours into that game over my various playthroughs and I still have a blast.


Flaws?

Dude, it didn't have an ending.

Still a f****** great game.


I know that killed me. It's a real shame Obsidian was rushed to release it and had to cut a bunch of content out. I still haven't got a chance to check out the restoration mod for the pc version.


Neither have I - I do want to play it though!!!

A couple that are damn close, imo:
Red Dead Redemption
Diablo 2: LoD
Starcraft
Warcraft 3: TFT
Pokemon Crystal
Mario Galaxy 2
LoZ: OoT

Bro, when you tack on mass, you sacrifice flexibility. That's just a straight up fact

RDR was pretty epic, but.. Nothing much I'd change on it if I'm honest. I almost don't want a sequel.

Diablo 2 still won't work for me, so looks like I'm missing out on one of the true greats.

Halo CE felt like this to me back in the day. It's still one of my top favorite games of all time. Flawless campaign that just gets better with co-op, ridiculously fun and addicting multiplayer on amazing maps.

I remember Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction being the first game of last gen to give me this feeling. It just embodied everything I consider to be fun and entertainment in a game.

Final Fantasy XI. An everlasting adventure that you could enjoy on your own, play co-op with, go against each other... Massive world, a healthy selection of quests and story lines...

I miss playing it, but I just don't have the time anymore :(

Ninja Gaiden Black. My only complaint about it, is the backtracking you start to do once you get to Tairon.

Halo CE has it's flaws. Like recycled environments and an enemy that looks like pop corn. And don't get me started on how the pistol feels like a rocket launcher and the assault rifle feels like like a squirt gun
