if you could erase ONE game from your memory to play it for the first time again...

Sly Cooper: Honor Among Thieves. Best game on the PS2 in my opinion.

Bioshock. I had it spoiled for me because I had to wait a few years to play it.

It's hard to pick just one game! My choices would come down to The Witcher games or Planescape Torment to experience the story, or Heroes of Might and Magic 3 to learn how to play that awesome strategy game again from square 1. Also System Shock 2 because the first playthrough of that game with no spoilers is just... OMG!

Gonna have to go Planescape Torment on this. System Shock 2 is a very close second.

There are 3. Dungeon Keeper, Neverwinter Nights: Hordes of the Underdark, and I kinda agree with the Walking Dead to be fair. Nothing beats playing a game for the first time if it leaves a lasting impression!

Either OoT (obvious, I know, but genuine), OR FFX. Both have a good length, and a great sense of discovery and depth.

Shadow of the colossus

Either Fable: The Lost Chapter, Tales of Vesperia, TES: Morrowind or Persona 4: Golden (assuming I forgot everything about the PS2 version too). It's honestly a really tough decision. I'd probably just end up sticking them all into a randomizer and seeing which one is the lucky one.

Morsomk:

Yay. I wasn't being yelled at(got legitimately scared for a sec).

Btw, been having Persona 4 backlogged on my shelf for freakin' ages now. I can either play a game with amazing character development and fantastic story, or I could keep playing Omerta City of Gangster and possibly get the chance of hearing a 1920-30 gangster say "Myah". What do ya think I should do?

If you have the option, skip the PS2 version entirely and play P4: Golden on the Vita. It's an entirely better game all around with a whole 3 months of in game bonus material plus a new dungeon and several new comms and events littered throughout the game.

Of course, that is if you have the option available. I'm not going to tell you to go buy a Vita just for P4: Golden. Even though that was the reason I bought mine...

Deus Ex.

That WHAM moment when you learn what's in UNATCO Authorized access only area.
Or when you kill Navarre onboard the 747 and it WORKS.

Fallout 3/ New vegas. Because that game was amazing.
And Bioshock because of it's shocking story.

Planescape Torment, would give anything to play that game again spoiler-free and not knowing anything about the plot, characters, or Planescape universe.

Original War.

One of the most unique RTS I have ever played and still is . I remembered when I was younger I got hold of a demo and I fell in love instantly. Since that moment I play through it once every year (thanks GOG.com)

I would have given anything to play that game for the first time again.

Chrono Trigger. Dat main character death.

And if I went back to Bayonetta blind, Chapter 14 would kill me because I'd be in tears from nearly start to finish.

Final fantasy 7. While it wasn't my favorite game (is near the top) It was the best experience. Though to be honest it was more the entire situation in my life.

...unless you can count World of Warcraft. The first 2 years of playing that, the community, everything involved...

I guess really the games are only part of why they have such a great memory...

but I can't think of a better one (other then wow) then opening up my ps1, ff7, on christmas, and spending the next 3 days around family, great food, and playing non stop.

However if we are talking about just the game, none of the multiplayer, community or feelings around the game at the time...just the game its self...

would have to go with...mechwarrior 2 or total annihilation.

Half-Life 2 without a doubt. I would love to be able to play it again for the first time.

definitely ocarina of time. i remember when i first got to that part where you meet saria playing the ocarina and my friend was like "yeah this is where you use the hookshot to get into the forest temple." and i was like "hookshot? forest temple? that sounds like the coolest thing ever!" And it was.

Let's just use the blanket of 'Bioware' almost every time I've started one of their games I've meandered about replaying the first hour for like a month before I actually play the fucking thing. It'd be nice to have another go at that and try not to bollocks it up.

Mass Effect 1,2,3 Just to fuck with the rules.Pretend 2 and 3 didn't exist and the series ended on a cliffhanger.
ME1 just isn't as good when you know the universe well,a big part of ME1 is discovering the universe,hence why I am also adding 2 and 3.

New Vegas. That game is still legit and the only reason I'm not still playing it is I ran out of stuff to do. I completed the main quest 3 times with different characters and different endings, did all the DLC, completed every quest in the game, bankrupted all the casinos WITHOUT abusing quicksave, found all the special weapons, found every wild wasteland thing, killed every legendary creature, bedded the ladies, got fisted by a robot, helped every companion find peace of mind, the whole lot. I loved every second of it too.

Red Dead Redemption.

It's not my favorite game I've played, it's not the best game I've played, but it's the most triumphant and humble experience I've ever had the pleasure of completing.

Gotta be half life 2. That complete sense of contentment when I beat that . . . I would give anything to feel that again.

Witcher 2, I am playing atm currently.

It was my break in to the series, and it is great! That or vampire the Masquerade Bloodlines. Probably just about edges above the witcher 2 for me.

Half Life 2
World In Conflict
Fallout 3
... and Bioshock

I hope Bioshock: Infinite will be just as exciting.

My favorite game of the gen would have to be Dead Rising, so I'd go with that. Though 2013 is a much different time than 2006 was. Back then unique zombie fiction wasn't as easy to come by so it stood out as a really original title. Not sure how it would hold up today, in a world where you can't pitch a stone without hitting 7 zombie games. Still, Frank West covered wars, you know! I'm sure he'd still impress.

I could also take the first Halo and put it on this list. I loved that game so much. Halo 4 was a big fat let down, but my love of the original stands up strong even to this day. To experience it again for the first time would be grand.

Baldurs gate, or Zelda Ocarina of Time, the plot is key for any game you would forget and replay, these two have it in buckets.

Bioshock - knowing that twist makes the game a ot less awesome sadly :/

Final Fantasy X-2, The only good Final Fantasy is one of the best games I have ever played.

Vintage: A Link To The Past, Chrono Trigger, EarthBound, DOOM II

Classic: Ocarina of Time, Legend of Dragoon, Deus Ex, Halo CE

Modern: Half Life 2, Persona 4, Hotline Miami

These were games that I remember having this magical feel about them.
That feeling of waking up on Christmas as a wee lad and having the time of your life.
Only that feeling extended to the entirety of the first playthrough, it wasn't necessarily Christmas and I wasn't necessarily a wee lad while playing a bunch of these games. Especially not the last three.

Suikoden 2, easily; you should've heard my hype when I discovered what transferring Suikoden 1 data gave me. Although, frankly, it's been long enough that there's a lot that I don't recall. Same for other stuff I'd say, like Xenogears, and other stuff, like FF6, I played so much that I've memorized the secret stuff, forgotten they were secrets, and now treat that stuff like it's the main path through the game, so I'm not sure I can even forget Chrono Trigger and FF6/7/8 anymore.

Maybe Final Fantasy: Tactics. I'd love to play through that blind again, especially with the remake on PSP.

Maybe fighting games in general? After playing them long enough, you start to learn habits for finding combos and strategies and stuff. I'd like to rediscover all that.

Breath of Fire 3/4 are good contenders, too. Which reminds me that I should play Dragon Quarter some time.

Persona 4, my first time playing was the most fun I had in a looooooong time, what I would give to cry at the ending all over again.

Dark Souls, after playing Demons Souls I knew what I was getting my self into, that sense of discovering something new (aka new ways to die) made DkS such an experience to remember.

Red Dead Redemption, I literally felt as though the Old West never existed so when I played the game it felt so fresh and new, I want it again damn it!

Devil May Cry 3, I loooooooved hanging out with that white haired, douche bag, stylish ass, demon hunter.

KotOR II, no question. Still my favorite RPG of all time, but my friend (who was playing through it at the same time) spoiled all of the major reveals. As a story, it's still fantastic, though.

Ihateregistering1:
Planescape Torment, would give anything to play that game again spoiler-free and not knowing anything about the plot, characters, or Planescape universe.

I have never played it, but I intend too, so I would like my memory to be spoler free.

Also, Portal and Chrono Trigger.

The Witcher 2 Assassins of Kings is my top choice.
The Second has to be To The Moon, and the Third is Bioshock.

Great Question BTW.
Cheers Oly J

That's a tough one. Probably Deus Ex, but Persona 3: FES and Ultima VII would also be pretty awesome to play again for the first time. I'd play Deus Ex again for gameplay, P3:FES for characterisation of NPCs, and Ultima VII for story (knowing Ultima IV-VI).

Max Payne 3, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Far Cry 3, or The Bioshock games( Bioshock:Infinite anyone?) All of these are great games with a gripping story line. Had me from beginning to end.

Katawa Shoujo hands down. I'll never forget my experience with that story.
