    I ****ing loved this game on PSX. On TH2 one of the early levels I think was a shopping mall, me and my mates would have races instead of trying to do tricks as the whole level was one long journey to the end. The rage when you let them go ahead only to ride into them so they fall and you win

    Yes you can play OOT on Pc with N64 Emulator. Go to emuparadise and download a N64 emulator and download zelda OOT Rom from there aswell. Then play. you can configure controllers in the emulator.
    I'll gkve it a go, sounds easy. Cheers.

    Danganronpa 2 (Tropical Despair) is my all time favourite. It has wonderful character development, fun logic puzzles, and a gripping mystery story. The sound track and art convey the tone of the game perfectly, truly complimenting the story. Plus there's a good dose of comedy to top it all off.

    For me, nostalgia is usually a huge part of why I find a game so good. Like, I love Wind Waker and it is probably my most favourite game - even though people were very critical of it at the time and arguably there are a few Zelda titles that could easily blow WW out of the water (MM and OoT ofc). I think I enjoy it so much because of the feeling I get when I replay it...how cheesy.
    I played it when I was 6 and it was my first ever game that was solely mine and I was so awful at it that in the end my brother did a majority of the work then I tried it again.

    In terms of actual games I consider good from a critical view they'd all be so stereotypical and acclaimed by most people that I doubt they haven't already been mentioned.

    In terms of best overall, probably the Resident Evil and MGS series. When I was younger, the games I just found plain addictive were Tony Hawk games and WCW and WWF wrestling games (this was on the PSX), the type of game that you'd be playing all day and then your parents would come and and ask you to turn it off and you'd start freaking out :rofl: Since becoming and adult I thought I'd never find a game addicting again, but the Zombies mode in Call of Duty games proved me wrong there - it's certainly not the best game available, but in terms of replay value, for me it was just unbeatable. It's gone down the toilet now but World at War and Black Ops 1 Zombies took up way too much of my time.

    A game that holds a special place in my heart is Jet Set Radio back on the Dreamcast - absolutely fab game with an amazing soundtrack (and that 'cel-shading' tho...) and a game that I have played right through from the start to the present is the Sims 2

    You hit me really hard with the nostalgia here. I remember the good ol' days playing Simpsons Hit and Run. I still play it on my PS2 from time to time.

    Sim City :ahee: Although I feel like Cities: Skylines blows it out of the water a little now! Haven't played it but it looks pretty in-depth

    I recently completed it on the remastered version and the last few chapters were a bit infuriating but great game regardless! Think I prefer it to Uncharted 3 so far

    And of course Star Wars Battlefront II was just the best
