I saw another thread with this question but it was from 2005 and in the wrong forum. Mine are the following: 1) Dark Souls 2 (vanilla) I played this a lot later than Dark Souls 1, Dark Souls 3 and Bloodborne. Big mistake! I really regret overlooking this game. My brain told me it would be too addicting and too hard. Actually on the first playthrough I became frustrated and gave up. Quit for over a year. Turns out I was playing the game all wrong and advancing too quickly. I didn't level my HP or adaptibility much and died to the Ruin Sentinels over and over. They are probably one of the harder bosses in the game. Flew through the game later on and loved every minute of it. It's not too difficult and some areas are actually too easy. Most of the bosses don't take more than a few tries. I found this game to be the most fun title in the series. When I get through it I immediately start up all over again! I must have at least 500 hours in this game without even trying the DLC. I did finish the Scholar of the First Sin version and don't remember it being any harder. I think I finished that one first, but hard to remember! 2) Fallout 3 I must have played through this game and all the DLC dozens of times. Love the story and pretty much everything. The combat these days is now a little outdated, but that's OK. It seems like there is a story behind every single thing in the game. I can't stand how titles later in the series now have randomized loot and weapons. Fallout 4 was good, but it's one game I had no interest in playing through more than once. 3) Uncharted 2 One game I consider to be pretty much perfect. Played through it so many times. It's even better than part 3 and 4. I usually NEVER play games on hard mode, but was eventually good enough to finish this on "Crushing" difficulty. 4) Bioshock 2 Yes, some hate this, but I love it and it's the only title in the series I actually like. Another game that I found extremely difficult at first due to playing it all wrong! Once I switched to using mostly my drill it became a lot easier. Love all the mini-games, hacking, upgrades, turrets and Adam extraction sequences. There's a lot of stuff in here that is gone from the other games. 5) Dishonored I normally dislike stealth games, but love this one. Enough to play through it maybe 6 times now. I haven't played the DLC though. 6) Prey (PS4) What a weird experience this game was at first. Now it's a favorite. I somehow didn't like it much on my first playthrough and possibly it was due to my character build. I also had to start over 10 hours into it because I forgot to get essential weapons and ran out of supplies. You can't just play this like a shooter or you'll probably do terrible. Most tougher early enemies kind of require some sort of strategy. I think it's easy in this game to screw up your character and get stuck somewhere in the game without ammo or supplies. There were times when I was new when I thought this game was extremely difficult (it's really not!). The early game is the hardest IMO because you're weak and without supplies. It seems that for the game to become easier you need to explore everything, collect as much loot as possible and make your own supplies with the recycler. Eventually you become overpowered and nothing is really too hard to take down even with a shotgun. Anyway, after I finished this I ended up playing through it again at least 6 more times! It's a LOT more fun if you don't rush and just take your time. This is one game I hope will get a sequel. It's kind of a weird mix of Bioshock 2 and Dishonored! PS This is more of an action RPG and even more so than Dishonored. 7) Zelda: A Link to the Past This is my #1 game by far. Pretty much perfect. 8) Final Fantasy XI (Online) Have played this since 2004 or when it was on the PS2 with a dialup modem. I really was addicted to this for awhile. At one point I had to force myself to stop playing due to it keeping me from my work at home. This game used to be one of the hardest games there was, but now it's extremely easy. You can get to level 99 in less than a day. Before it took up to a year for some jobs to get to level 75. I still play it, but I feel like it's the same thing over and over now. I capped job points on one job (BST), but doing it again just feels like too much work. The game also isn't anywhere near as fun without a large linkshell group that does daily events. That's what made me love the game. I really regret switching servers. Mine got down to only 250 people online per day. Now i'm in the huge Asura server. 9) Fable 2 Absolutely loved this game. Extremely easy though. Main negative is the controls are not always the best when moving around. In combat they are perfect through! Loved this game so much that I was really disappointed when it ended and I had nothing left to do. I think I eventually owned every building in the game and did everything there was to do. I actually skipped getting an Xbox One because of what Microsoft did to Lionhead Studios! Hopefully we'll still see Fable 4 in the future. Part 3 was terrible!
