Recommended Posts

Pick one game per gaming plaform you have owned. Kind of desert island disks . You can only choose one per system but you can have as many systems as you have owned .

 

Here’s mine

 

spectrum - Elite . So many hours sunk into this. A real case of your brain filling in the gaps

C64- Alternate reality - The city . Best RPG on the platform 

Amiga - really tough but probably Wings 

SNES- Super Mario world . 

PC - Football Manager . Glorified spreadsheet that can go on forever 

PS- FFVII . Just wonderful 

Dreamcast - Powerstone 2 . Nothing like been realeased since 

N64 - Super Mario 64 

PS2 - GTA :VC . Nostalgia overload . 

Xbox - soul calibur 2 . So many couch sessions

XBOX360 - PGR3 as above plus online 

PS3 - The Last of Us -cinematic gaming perfection 

GC - Resi 4 . - never equalled 

Wii- Super mario galaxy - just a stunning achievement 

Wii U - Bayonetta 2 - Pure videogaming

Ps4 - so so difficult . But I’d have to say Destiny  . Genuine friendships formed 

PSVR - Farpoint . Genuinely a wow game . The future is here 

 

Handhelds

 

GB - Tetris - converted the entire office 

GBA - warioware inc . 

PSP - Crisis core . Genuine FFVII prequel 

3DS- Theatrythm Curtain call

@PeteBrant this is a great topic.

At first I just chose my favourite games. Then tried to create a balanced set of games covering genres etc. Then took a look at the list and thought “would I be happy playing this set of games forever” and I reckon I would.

Great topic.

 

Spectrum: Bruce Lee ( probably not regarded as a classic by many, but I loved it as a kid)

Master System: Phantasy Star - difficult choice this, as out of all the games I owned back then, I don't really think highly enough of any of them to bring along to a desert island. Years later I played the GBA port of PS though, which I enjoyed, so that's my choice.

Mega Drive: Shining Force 2

Mega CD: Lunar: Eternal Blue

SNES: Chrono Trigger wait, shit, I never actually owned a SNES. Bollocks.

N64: Ocarina of Time

PS1: Suikoden 2

PS2: Final Fantasy XII

I think that's all of them. How anyone could choose Shining Force over Shining Force 2 will forever be a mystery to me ( @Luseth)

 

Sega Saturn was a very hard choice for me but I eventually went with Guardian Heroes because I spent innumerable hours playing that with my brother. Could have been Athlete Kings, Shining The Holy Ark, Shining Force 3 (I'm still bitter about that never getting an official English release in its entirety) or Dark Savior.

Amstrad CPC464 - Harrier Attack.

The first game I can remember. Sitting on my dad's knee, he did the flying, I hammered shift and space bar to fire missiles and drop bombs. Wonderful days.

 

BBC Micro - Castle Quest.

The toothbrush guards are so weird and intimidating. A condensed masterpiece of adventure, puzzles and dexterity. Never finished it. 

 

Acorn Electron - Repton.

I can still hear the ping of the diamonds and those cracking lizard eggs terrify me even now. 

 

Amstrad CPC6128 - Tubaruba

Perhaps my first psychedelic experience, a multi-screen shmup set in a Jet Set Willy-inspired madhouse. The music is a detuned cyclical nightmare. 

 

Atari 2600 - Star Wars: Death Star Battle

Another formative shmup. This has the greatest sound effects ever created, for anything. It's so fucking futuristic even now, the sound of a universe devoid of humanity. 

 

NES - Super Mario Bros. 3

I'll never forget playing this with my little brothers, noses pressed against the telly, soaking up the colours and sounds, the warmth and imagination of that world, helping each other through it, finding the secrets, laughing with relief at finishing improbable levels, cheering each other on, whiling away our days. We had each other. I've never been happier in my whole life.

 

Atari ST - Sid Meier's Pirates!

The sense of scale, the duels, the trading, the marriages! Few games have ever captured such a spirit of adventure or implied such a richly detailed world through so little.

 

Amiga - Sensible Soccer

I could have picked so many but this still feels better than almost anything I've played. There's a remarkably precise sense of weight and touch to each shot. It's beyond muscle memory, I can feel it in my imagination. I'll never forget my mate Jon taking a bite out of this disk after a particularly narrow defeat. 

 

SNES - Super Mario Kart 

As with Sensi, the tactile subconscious memory of this game is testament to how much joy computer games have brought me both individually and as a social experience. KMKYWAP radio show on the tape deck and Battle Mode for days, laughing and chatting, playing without thinking, a part of us.

 

N64 - Ocarina of Time

Like most of the consoles named in this list, we didn't own an N64. We used to rent it from the video shop and we always used to rent Ocarina of Time. The attract music is so incredibly evocative to me, the sound of Epona's aimless canter over those rolling piano chords. I can't put it into words. Until the 3DS release, I didn't even know about the time travel. I've still never finished it but it's beyond my critical faculties, one of my favourite games ever. 

 

PS1 - Tomb Raider

We never expected a PlayStation. Thanks, mum. I don't know how you did it, but thanks. Even coming after Ocarina this felt remarkable in its scale and sense of mystery, exploration and depth. The solitude, the music, the T-Rex! It seems absurd not to choose FF7 here because of how much it has been a part of mine and my brothers' lives and how much I adore it beyond reason but this is the one which really represented a change in many ways. I'll never ever forget that Christmas morning.

 

And then there was an interlude of Sixth Form, uni, boozing, girls, madness, despair, rejuvenation and living abroad. While I was in China, I started playing games again with a mate and one day we went to Computer City, a black market for tech and I first saw the Wii. I bought it on the spot.

 

Wii - Metroid Prime Corruption

After being blown away by Wii Sports and having found great comfort in the Ocarina retread of Twilight Princess, this was the one which I will never forget. It was the time as much as anything, working with one of my best mates, living with a wonderful girl, out meeting new people every day and night. I had all the time and freedom I wanted, always on the cusp of something new and fresh, arguably a peak time just before the tide turned for Westerners in China and before the reality set in that I couldn't stay forever. I played Metroid Prime Corruption in my pants, sitting on cushions on the floor, over the course of several sweltering summer days. Spicy hot dry noodles for breakfast, chilled iced tea, Metroid, pushing and pulling and twisting switches and valves, pointing and shooting. It seemed like black magic. An unrepeatable time of excitement and this is the one which truly made gaming a part of my life again.

 

I'll draw a line there, I think. Thanks very much for the great thread.
