Resident Evil 4 & Shadow of the Colossus & Conker's Bad Fur Day come to mind for me. They're 3 of my favorite games of all time.
The only flaws(to me) were that I wish they never ended lol, it's very rare these days for me to come across a game that I loved so much that I wished it never ended, they really made an impact on me growing up. Well, for SotC in particular I just wish there was more colossi to fight but other than that those games were the perfect length, not TOO long but not too short like most games these days either
Truly immersive and addictive games, those where you stay all night playing nonstop. Good plots, and I love dating sim elements and RPG being combined. I wish that the decisions that were made throughout the game would have had a more profound impact on how the story unfolded.
The Dot Hack videogame series, specially .Hack / / G.U.
Wonderful story and concept. Being able to "leave the game" to the computer desk, receive and respond to messages from your companions and other characters, receive news about the world around the game, and of course the gameplay itself was very good.
first game that comes to my mind Mega Man 2 for the nes (still hooked up and ready to go on my tv) Mega Man Battlenetwork 2 (starting to see a patern) Warcraft 2 Pokemon blue it was awesome while i was a kid
Has anyone mentioned The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings yet?
That game, for me, is as close to perfect as a game can get. Your choices actually matter (even including giving you a completely different 2nd and 3rd chapter based on one of them), the story is the best I've ever seen (probably because it's based on a book), and the play is close to flawless.
The only things I'd change are: -Crafting. It would be cool to craft things myself and not have to find someone to do it. Something like Skyrim's system would be great.
-More of an open-world while still keeping the story.
-The ability to cut Geralt (main character)'s hair. Holy crap does that ponytail get tiresome. (And yes, I know you can "change" his hair, but really it's just the "pick a ponytail" game.)
Hopefully, with The Witcher 3 being announced soon, these will be added in the changed stuff. They've already hinted at it being an open-world, so let's see!
