    Just too many to choose from. EVE is just epic, portal was wonderfully written, team fortress is hilarious, battlefield had some brilliant moments, ranked doubles in StarCraft at uni was a good laugh with my flatmates, mortars in tribes could entertain me no end, but then there's the nostalgia of the original pokemon and mario games and stuff like lode runner and doom 95.

    The Last of Us is the best I've ever played, it's a great game in terms of action and gameplay but what makes the game so brilliant is the story, it's really quite emotional and engaging.
    Same here. I agree the gameplay, the sceneries, the story, the various emotions and the engaging nature of the game, has lead not just me and you, but various other gamers/reviewers to declare it being one of the best games they've ever played. It's one of the few games I know that has overwhelmingly positive (5-star) reviews from almost every reviewer. It was thrilling and the ending was very thought provoking.

    I'm curious if they'll produce a film out of 'The last of us' or a sequel - if they do, I'm not sure if it could live up to the inimitable nature of the first game.

    (On another note: Naughty Dog made another hit with 'Uncharted 4')

    This is a bit of a nostalgia thread, but the question is simple. Since you have been gaming what is the best/most memorable game that you have played? If you have more than one then do mention more!
    The best games:
    The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time
    Paper Mario
    Tales of Symphonia
    Metal Gear
    Chrono Trigger

    My favourite developer is Nintendo.

    Trust me, the games I listed are some of the best. They're actually games with meaning - if you told an employer you played these, they would hire you immediately.

    The game I always go back to is Binding of Isaac Rebirth. I used to be awful but after hundreds of hours playing I am decent which I guess gives me a bit of pride

    Why? It's literally a shooter with a few RPG elements thrown in. The characters were just so bland and unmemorable and half the lore just didn't make sense.

    There are literally 2 endings.

    Todd Howard and his lies like 'Fallout 3 will have 200 endings' have been enough for me.

    Honestly, Todd Howard is just such a crappy game director. He made one good game (Morrowind) and then decided to just devolve everything from there.

    Bethesda should just leave Fallout alone, and let a competent group like Obsidian have free reign.
    I was like 11 when I first played it, and it was the first "RPG" I ever played, so I was pretty oblivious to what it really could've been.I just loved the theme and stuff. Then I played New Vegas and literally died from happiness lol

    Skyrim and the Mass Effect series on the previous gen consoles.

    Skyrim because of its atmosphere, lore, graphics (at the time) and how open it is- the attention to detail in the game is amazing and that just makes it memorable and probably the best game I've ever played so far.
    Mass Effect mainly because of its story/lore and how emotionally attached I got to the game and characters. Cried like a baby when I finished it gdi.

    As for current gen consoles I have to go with Bloodborne as while I haven't played any other souls games (yet), it made me seriously want to because of how intricately and cleverly the levels are designed and also the sense of achievement you get when you finally beat that boss that screwed you over like 20 times :hmmmm2:. Not to mention how good (and surprisingly emotional?) the story is once you understand it.
    Also the soundtrack is pretty good.

    Personally, the most memorable game I remember playing is TimeSplitter: Future Perfect. Crazy that it came out in 2005 As for the best developer, it has to be Bethesda. They produce the best open world games in my opinion!

    As for the best game I have played recently, it has to be Witcher 3. The amount of detail in that game is just :adore:
    I have been gaming for a while so here are my faves in non perticuler order (with descriptions):

    Doom
    The orignal doom is one of those games that everyone has to experiance. If you have not played the original doom you can call yourself a gamer.

    Zool
    A little known platform game from the 90's

    IL2 1946
    This combat flight sim is the best combat flight sim I have ever played the feeling of flight as you take off the physics how every aircraft feels diffrent fro. The USSR flying Appel boxes to the German bf109's to the Japaniese zero just perfect.

    Flight simulator X*
    In this you get the whole world yes some of the coloured are off ( I am looking at you UK) but mods can change that both free where and pay where it's perfect.

    Unreal Tournament (franchise)
    Unreal tournament was an Amazing franchise with lodes of game modes and mods and somthing called mutators I still play the original and it still feels as fresh as it did 16 years ago.

    Roller coaster tycoon
    I loved the orignal 3 games of this .

    Planit coaster
    The spiritual successor to Roller coaster tycoon

    Oblivion*
    Huge open world the first time I excited the sewers to be confronted with the lakes and ruins it took my breath away you can buy it on steam and it is the perfect RPG just like Skyrim but a diffrent region and story also no dragons.

    Total war
    Amazing grand strategy all the historical titles are amazing (except Rome 2) and even the new Warhammer iteration is quite goodi learnt how to adapt plans as situations develop from this game.*
