    Games that impacted you the most [POSSIBLE SPOILERS]

    I'm pretty sure that we all once played a game in wich a certain moment affected us emotionaly. It either made you cry like a little bitch or simply left you shocked...

    oh and just a little reminder: THE DEATH OF AERIS IN FF7 IS NOT, I REPEAT NOT THAT SHOCKING ANYMORE SEEN AS EVERY-FUCKING-BODY KNOWS SHE WAS STABBED BY A HIGHLY OVERRATED VILLAIN NAMED SEPHIROTH AND WAS LATER UNINTENTIONALLY DROWNED BY CLOUD.

    anyway, my favorite is from the game Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey for DS.
    SPOILER! :
    The basic plot of this is that you're sent along with a team of highly skilled specialists, scientists and militaries into a vortex named "The Zwartzwelt" which is slowly consuming the earth starting with the southpole. naturely shit hits the fan, people die and you're onboard of the only ship that survives.
    however, after a short while, when you start exploring the Zwartzwelt, it's becoming more obvious that you are quitte literally in hell. Now this is where it gets interesting... all of these "sectors" represent the sins of humanity, which in turn strongly resemble The Godly Comedy (A.K.A Dante's Inferno). Now for my favorite part: the game actually fucks you over into the choice of actually killing earth by the way you play. for example if you play a Goody-Two Shoes kind of character you actually get fucked over into enslaving all of humanity to god. like forever. without dying.
    that's where you come to the realisation that doing the right thing isn't that good at all. i was kinda shocked because of this, probably because of being raised on sugarcoated hollywood crap and being raised as a christian when i was younger.
    in fact Satan was actually more reasonable, seen as she (yes, this satan is a she) wanted a world where everyone was free of all stuck-up religious rules and values and people would actually die instead of religious fairytale crap about immortality.

    It was probably the first time a game actually made me think about stuff like this.


    so how about you guys?

    FFVII, EarthBound(Mother2), StarFox SNES. And more recently, Unreal Tournament 2004, why? Because when I got my hands on the demo to that game, it opened my eyes to a whole new world of art and design, therefore effectively pushing me to make my choice in employing m art skills towards concept art. After that more and more Epic games influenced me, mainly Gears of War, and then from there, Bullet Storm and etc.

    Mass Effect cuz I realized RPGs really can be the most badass genre plus MGS3 in a small way because I now am seriously considering wilderness survival as a gameplay option

    Fire Emblem 7 opened my eyes to the world of RPGs. The characters, the gameplay, the anime art style, the cliche yet epic storyline, the host of secret chapters, allies, and items, even the freaking SOUND TEST! The world just came to life in my head.

    Every waking second that I played co-op Earth Defense Force 2017 on its highest difficulty helped me realize that games don't particularly need to be polished or pretty to be the best thing ever. What games need to do is attack you in the glands and get your adrenaline pumping. EDF 2017 is one of the finest examples of "just plain fun" to exist--ever.

    Heavenly sword...mainly cuz its a first game that i played where the protagonist dies in the end AFTER beating the bady and AFTER helping just half of her village survive and Little big planet.......still can't beat the last level......... ._. ..........i should kill myself. I never thought that a game meant purely for creativity would be so hard.............
    Problem?
