You know, that one game you return to time and time again. No matter how dated it is, how outclassed, how old or how flawed it is. You can look past all that and see it for what you did all that time ago. It has that charm that draws you in and captivates you, that wraps around you like a warm, fluffy blanket. But it doesn't have to captivate you, it could just simply bring you a sense of peace, one that makes you travel back in time to when you first got it.

That no matter how much time passes, it'll always have a special place in your heart and memory card or hard drive.

With that said, first up for me is Pitfall: The Lost Expedition, with backstory (No flashbacks). From when I first got it and Wave Race: Blue Storm (Long gone) with my Gamecube, I would play up to the Monkey Temple a few times until I got a memory card and was able to beat it the first time. Time passed and I would replay it once or twice before I traded it in with a few others for a used Nintendo DS. But it's one of those things I regretted parting with some time after. Been years since I was able to see it again, but when I did, I purchased it then and there. I replayed it once or twice in that time since we were reunited, and it always brought a smile to my face.

Despite it showing it's age a bit, I'm still captivated by the charm it holds; the sound of the score as it's playing and how quick it can go.

You're human, so you have one as well. Post them and share the delicacies!

Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure. Getting to the ending and getting awesome ending was hilarious and fucking amazing.

Pokemon, of course. Don't really matter which one, just pokemon.

Mario Party 6. This sounds lame, but it's something where all of my friends and I can be assholes to each other without getting angry at each other.

And Tetris because for some reason playing with blocks and getting TETRIS makes me happy.


That's all I can think of right now.

Half-Life series. Once a year for some reason I get the urge to play through the entire thing.

Sub-space: I haven't actually played it in a while...I wonder if there are any servers still up.

Megaman Legends
Okami
Cave Story
TES: Morrowind
LoZ: Majora's Mask
Silent Hill 2
Shadow of the Colossus
Super Mario Bros.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2

No matter how old the games are, or how long away from them I've been, I always get ridiculously enthralled whenever I come back to them. They might not stand the test of time to others, but they keep going on and on for me. I rub them all over my body.

Metroid Zero Mission, I can play that one over and over again and not get bored of it. Same goes with the Prime Trilogy.

High five for Pitfall Hail! *Aims for high five*
Still wishing for one more game to come out, but the odds are horribly slim. As slim as a sequel to Midtown Madness 3, which reminds me of a rambling, nostalgia old man tale:

Midtown Madness 2, with it's horribly outdated blocky, simple graphics (On traffic, buildings, the grass, people, monuments, the sky etc), arcade style physics (Which is one of it's best aspects), the VO before every race or cruise session and the overall arcadey feel of it all.

Seriously loved to just cruise around in this game. The races were good, some around the city that were only winnable in a Panoz GTR-1, which could be totaled in a crash and the Crash Course was fun but never had the skill to maintain a certain speed while cornering. But cruising around London and San Fran was the best. Driving up a road to launch off that swervy hill to clear it and land on the road, speeding past a cop or turning a bit before the jump to land in a grassy space between buildings. Or going off anything that can get me air, knowing that the cops could get even more air to the point where I couldn't help but laugh.

Or the cops themselves, who were as reckless as you are, if not more so. Plowing through traffic, sending other cars airborne, not giving a damn about anybody that gets in your way... those were real coppers.

Good times... and now I'm getting a daily dose of it, 15-30 minutes per day. Damn Microsoft for not bringing it back.
