Games that You play for Years (A Positive Thread)



  • Storman1977Storman1977 Columbus, OHPosts: 207Member

    The games that have kept me coming back for more, or in one's case, never leaving-

    Dungeons & Dragons Online - Been rocking out here for six years and counting.  Will probably be here until they turn out the lights or do something incredibly stupid (the latter being entirely possible with Turbine)

    City of Heroes/Villains - Played for three years straight and still pop in every few months to see whats new

    Counter Strike - Yeah, still jump in for a few rounds of 1.6

    Half-Life 2 - While I'm no longer doing the once a year run through, I'll still fire it up for an hour or two when the urge hits.

    Final Fantasy 7 - With this being on the Playstation Network, I no longer have to fire up the PSOne to give it a spin.

    I'm thinking myself pretty young when it comes down to this industry to be honest, but I still had my favourites.


    Diablo 2:LOD - Loved it. Played through that as every character, several times. Specially worth the money as I got the game and the expansion for only £10!

    Fable:The Lost Chapters - again, another love. Got me all hyped for the second just from having played the first. I was all about shelling out a silly amount of money for all the extras, collectors edition etc... turned out to not be worth it. The first still sticks with me.

    Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos & The Frozen Throne - my first RTS! oh the memories! And that map editor? I've found non that can match it.

    Runescape - I'm not even embaressed to say, I spent so many hours playing this, returning time and time again, it's just silly.

    Can't think of any others off the top of my head... so they must be the ones that made the most impact...

    actually looks like a weird list to me now...

    Put through the personal paces of my crippled fingers.

    Any "Good" Post and Including Street Fighter 2 2D Fighting Game - I'm a pretty avid fighting game play and I tend to play older ones from time to time.  They never get old and most have solid mechanics to this day.

    Good Turn Based Strategy (X-COM, Jagged Alliance, Fire Emblem, Tactics games) - Very fun games to come back to.  Get tons of enjoyment out of them.

    RPGs - There are plenty to come back to from older titles like Bard's Tale and Might and Magic, to SNES JRPGs, to PSX RPGs, to even more modern titles.

    I also still play N64, Gamecube, and Xbox titles from time to time no matter what genre.  Mario 64 is one of the my favorite all time games for instance and I tend to revisit it.  Also a pretty big fan of Goldeneye 64.  Still, the 3 genres above are the ones I find easiest to come back to.

    Asheron's Call 1 - About three years with this, and I'm sorry to say no other MMORPG has been able to grab my attention like that since. Although SWG was a contender until it was WoWified.


    I still play online golf once every two or three weeks with some friends. And have for about 10 years now.

    Poker - The U.S. brick and mortar gambling lobby bribed their way into killing this one off. There are still ways to play, but it's just not the same anymore.

    Falcon 4.0 - count me in this camp as well. Both online and off. And yes, I have that mythical original manual too!

    DAOC - I started playing this game in 2002. I had so much fun playing Halo in Co-Op mode that it made me wonder if there were games that allowed you to play with other people all the time. I went to the store and looked at PC games, because I just got my first PC and seen two games on the shelf. EQ and DAoC. I looked at the box art, read their descriptions, and went with DAoC because it promised the ability to war with other players and conquer castles and capture and hold relics. I didn't even know these games were called MMORPG's and didn't learn they were apart of this genre I never heard of until years after I started playing. Hell, I didn't even know about this website until 2005 and didn't know any other MMORPG's even existed.

    Starting a new character in DAoC was magical. There was this large world that always existed, whether you were online or not, and you could actually play with other people without a split screen!. To top things off, it took a very long time to level up in the game and to experience everything the game had to offer. No more playing RPG's for a month before you beat it and then wasting another $60 on the next game.

    Grouping was the norm, so it was very easy to form groups. Mob grinding and dungeon crawling with your group was a blast and addictive. There was downtime, so group members spoke with each other and actually got to know the community they were a part of. PvP, called RvR, was a blast. Just like with grouping, you brought whoever wanted to join and roamed around killing the enemy and taking their castles. BG's weren't instanced and were persistent. They weren't game matches. Crafted gear was the best you could get and gear worth wearing didn't drop in the world.

    Lastly, players were proud to be a part of their realm. There wasn't any cross realm switching. People created a character and stuck with that realm for years. Realm pride was a big deal. If your relics were being attacked, players would answer the call to arms no matter the level and fight back the enemy for hours. People helped each other out selfessly, not because they shared a common goal, such as getting loot. Running across an asshat was extremely rare in my experience.

    Those were good times.
