    The very first time I played Tremendous Mario Bros and Duck Hunt.

    I was hooked from then on. I understood this is what i wished to do with my totally free time. And i assume i was 5.

    The first Zelda game, just flat out awesome. The music, the gold cartridge, the gameplay. So much fun.

    I had a Sega and of training course Sonic was basically attractive to play. But the 2 video games that stood out for me ended up Shining Force 2 and Phantasy Star 4. They made me rethink about what video games could do. The initial time i appreciated a recreation for its tale telling, on the identical stage as a film or a book, if something a lot more interactive.

    Never had a tremendous nintendo, but taking part in Tremendous Mario on my friend’s tremendous NES was awesome. i was so jealous. I obtained on not too long ago and i must say, Mario RPG is awesome.

    Also played a great deal of star fox, wwf and wcw games, and golden eye on N64.

    I don’t forget the first time i played the extremely first resident evil, i was house alone, actively playing in the dark, the portion exactly where you hear the zombie crunching but not certain what the sound is, then you see an individual sitting on the ground, he slowly turns, freaked me out!

    Final Fantasy 7, i faked getting ill so i could stay house and complete it. I can nonetheless bear in mind the very last battle against sephiroth, though i might not be ready to clarify the story to you.

    Metal Gear Solid, battle against Psycho Mantis, nuff said!

    Street Fighter 2 in the arcades, and every single simple fighting game that followed. i misplaced out on many, several college lunches so i could perform following school and on weekends at my regional aracade.

    Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 1 &2, Elder Scrolls Oblivion, Fable, Heavenly Sword, Castlevania, Kid Icarus, Altered Beast, Final Fight, Streets of Rage, Skate or Die 1 & 2, Vegas Dreams, Rescue Rangers, virtually each and every tremendous mario game, exact same for zelda, all the pokemon games, kingdom hearts, professor layton, fallout 3, shenmue, capcom vs marvel, batman arkham asylum, contra, nba 2k and nba live, and most of the wwe video games just to title a couple of of my favorites.

    It’s very sad! I’m devastated! I live in Pakistan and a lot of people in this region pirate games but i bought all 3 games full price ! and I payed 5000 rupees for MASS EFFECT 3 and the ending? Fuck bioware !

  • Agent 47

    I want to get Mass Effect 2 for the Xbox360, but holding it cause I don’t know if Bioware will ever release a Game of the Year/Platinum Hits etc edition. I would love to get the important DLC, mainly Lair of the Shadow Broker, Kasumi and Arrival.

    Thanks in advance!

    The new MMORPG will take place 300 years after the events of KOTOR 1 and 2. So I guess no Revan or Exile. Does anyone know if LucasArts is giving up on an RPG for Kotor 3. KOTOR 2 left many unanswered questions.

  • hank baseballs

    Does anyone know if they will be doing this soon, maybe in 1.2? I’m tired of playing my level 50 on a dead republic server.
    It’s impossible to group with anyone for hardmode flashpoints or operations because there are 40 people on republic fleet max at peak times

  • kerrin marz

    Also, what do you think makes it the best. Only discuss Bioware games, thanks!

  • Goe122

    Hiya peoples i really want to join the game testing for Star Wars the old republic testing but it asks for personal info but i was wondering why!?!

    Thanks

    Just personally thought that four different class choices is a little limiting compared to the eight on World of Warcraft. I know that the game has just started out and need time to grow but even still.
