The Most Memorable Games I Have Played

Hello everybody. How are you doing? :)

I've been inactive for a while. I've become a very indefferent person lately, and I don't know why. Anyway, I missed you guys. It's been ages since I last posted a blog, so I thought it would be a good idea to post a new one. I'll get right down to the business. Here are the most memorable games I have played:

10. WWF SmackDown! 2: Know Your Role (2001/PSOne)

I'm not a fan of WWE anymore, but I would still welcome a good WWE game with open arms. I have played several pro wrestling and mixed martial arts video games, but this one was definitly the best and it is one of my most memorable games of all time. It had a quite comprehensive and amusing career mode for a PSOne game at 2001.

9. Deadly Premonition (2010/Xbox 360)

If you have played the first 30 minutes of Deadly Premonition and then threw it in the trash can, you did right! Unfortunately for you though, Deadly Premonition shows its true self right after its first 30 minutes. The true Deadly Premonition is a different and peculiar game. It's not a great game, but it's different (in a positive way). Clumsy shooting mechanics? Outdated graphics? Deadly Premonition has it. But Deadly Premonition tells a great and rich story that has a perfect set of deep and unique characters.

8. Broken Sword: The Shadow of the Templars (1996/PSOne)

I used to be a fan of point-and-click adventure games, but not anymore - not because I've lost interest or something, but because these games practically don't exist now (except for independent projects). I'd be much obliged if you could recommend a couple of good adventure games. Anyway, this game is definitely the best adventure game I have ever played.

7. Metal Gear Solid (1999/PSOne)

If Metal Gear Solid was a movie, it would become my most favorite movie! I used to play Metal Gear Solid eagerly just to get to the next cutscene! A perfect set of peculiar and unique characters, plus a great story full of twists and surprises, plus epic boss battles, plus highly cinematic and dramatic cutscenes, made this game one of the most memorable ones I have ever played.

6. Digimon World 3 (2002/PSOne)

This game has recieved a 4.9 out of 10 from GameSpot, yet it is one of my favorites. I love turn-based roll-playing games, but I haven't played many of them. Whether it was my love for digimons, or the fact that I hadn't played many RPGs, or this game was really a good game after all (despite the 4.9), I'm not sure, but Digimon World 3 is my no. 6 most memorable game.

5. The Walking Dead: The Game (2012/PC)

The Walking Dead was the first game that really made me cry! And it is the most recent entry among the others. Thank God I had the chance to play all the 5 episodes in one go, because I don't think I would be able to wait for the next episode to come out. But now I can't wait for season 2 to come out! Rest in peace, Lee Everett, you are always remembered.

4. Red Dead Redemption (2010/Xbox 360)

Red Dead Redemption was the first game I played on my Xbox 360, and it is one of the best games I have ever played. It is of no use if I tell you for ages how great this game was. You wouldn't realize how great it was unless you have played it yourself, unless you have rode your horse in the wilderness and seen the sun set in the horizon...

3. Batman: Arkham City (2011/Xbox 360)

Arkham City is a perfect game! You couldn't ask for more: great combats, great story, great characters, great voice acting, great graphics, great level design, great puzzles, epic boss battles - everything you could ask from a video game. Arkham City was a combination of all the great things. The only bad thing about it was that it was so short that I had to play through it twice in order to fully enjoy it!

2. The Sims Series!

Seriously, I coudn't single out a specific Sims game. The Sims 2 and all its expansion packs, and The Sims 3, all of them have created some unforgettable memories for me.

1. Harvest Moon: Back To Nature (2001/PSOne)

I had no doubt as to which game would take the no. 1 spot. Harvest Moon is definitely the most memorable game I have ever played. A happy farm full of happy animals in a small town full of ordinary but unique people - the gameplay was perfect enough, but what made Harvest Moon so unique was the town and its people. From the sad lonely woodcutter to the happy lively mayor, to the odd but kind pastor, to the seven little brothers in the wood, they were all full of life and had their own unique and interesting background stories. I really didn't play Harvest Moon, I lived in Harvest Moon, and with its people!

Sorry if it has gotten a bit too long. That is indeed a very strange set of games up there! I would really like to know what you think and what your memorable games are.

Thank you in advance for reading and commenting. ;)

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day... valentines! ;) Get it?! :D No?! :| Ahem... er... alright... um... how you doin'? :D Hope you're having fun! ;)

I've become a level-17er! :D Yeah, I'm now a Minus World! Cool! I like it! :D Um... what exactly is a Minus World?! :|

My XBOX is at my brother's place. I want it back... NOW! :x It got Red Ring of Death'd today! :( I restarted it and, thank God, it worked again. :) Oh, what would I do without you, my dear XBOX?! Please, please don't leave me! :)

Got a pile of unfinished games, but I just can't stop playing FIFA 12! :x

Alright, just wanted to wish you a happy day, not just a Happy Valentine's Day! ;)

Thanks for reading/commenting. ;)

See ya 'round. ;)

Peace. ;)


Hey guys. :)

Um... it's me! :D It's been a while since I haven't blogged. I've been kind of inactive for a while. But I'm back... again! :D So... how have you been? :) I really missed you guys. And I missed GameSpot too. Ah, it's good to be back. :)

I have played and beat a couple of games while I wasn't around. I also got some new games that I have yet to play.

So... here's what went on (gamingly speaking!) since my last blog:

Games I have played or beat:

6 Days a Sacrifice

A point-and-click adventure game made by a development team of one guy. The story's awesome, I didn't get much from it though! :P This game's a freeware, you can download it for free here if you're interested.

Tekken 6

I have to admit I'm not a fan of the genre, but I really enjoyed Tekken 3. And this one's pretty much the same old Tekken 3... with better graphics! I liked the Scenario Mode though. The story was good enough for a fighting game. The character customization looked nice, but except for the items with special attributes you acquire during the Scenario Mode, it was pretty useless. I didn't enjoy it as much as I enjoyed Tekken 3. But all in all, the game was good. I gave it a 7.5.

L.A. Noire

The game starts really good, then it gets awesome in the middle, but it gets terrible towards the end! :| That was what I thought of L.A. Noire.


If you have played Red Dead Redemption... don't even think about this game!

GTA IV: Episodes From Liberty City

I liked the two DLCs much more than the original game.

Gears of War

A friend of mine and I went co-op on this game. It wasn't my type of game, but I enjoyed it altogether.

To the Moon

An independent point-and-click adventure game. Great story. Great music. :)

The Sims 3: Pets

It's a Sims game that has pets in it! What more can I say? :) Something about it really bothered me though. I don't know why on earth EA thought that having total control over the pets, like the sims, would be a good idea! :x

Devil May Cry 4

I'm not a fan of the series, neither am I a fan of the genre, but I really enjoyed this game. :)

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

I liked this game too, really enjoyed it. :)

Dead Space 2

I did a blog on Dead Space 2 in which I said I didn't like this game. But forget about that blog! Dead Space 2 is one of the greatest games I've played recently.

Deadly Premonition

I loved this game, but wait... approach this game (if you ever want to) with caution. You'll either love this game, or you'll hate this game. There's no third way, believe me! :)

Alright, the blog's getting too long. I'll talk about the other games in future blogs.

Alright, see ya! ;)

Thanks for reading/commenting. :)

See ya 'round. ;)

L... A... Noire... 'nough said!!

Hey everyone. :)

Missed me?! Uh... guess you didn't!! :P

But I DID miss you guys!! :)

Ah... it's good to be back! Good ol' GameSpot! Or should I say... good "new" GameSpot!! :|

Things've changed around here since I disappeared! Where was I?! Oh, I got abducted by the aliens!! :lol:

This new look seems... um... nice!! :D

Still glitchy though!! :x

But hey, what's with the "AU" in front of GS's logo?! :?

It has something to do with Australia, I suppose!! :|


I've been playing LA Noire for a couple of days now. It's not the best game I've ever played, though it's a singular one. Never seen a game like this before. It's like... a Detective-Sandbox-Action-Adventure game... or something like that! Hmm... this types of games don't come around all over the year. So... if you're not sure whether to get it or not, I got a little piece of advice for ya: DON'T... miss it!! :P

Guess that's about it... for now! :D

Thanks for reading/commenting! :)

See ya 'round! ;)

Dead Space 2, sir?! Er... No, thank you! What's next?!

Hi. :)

How have you been? :)

I've just played Dead Space 2 for an hour or so. And... Um... Er... I didn't like it! :| It just isn't my type of game! I WILL beat it sometime! But that's not gonna be anytime soon! Guess I'll go for GTA IV next! Think I'll like this one! :D

Alright, I'm gone for now. :)

See ya 'round! ;)

Gaming Status: ... ... Updated!!

Hello there. :)

How you doin? :)

I've just beaten Modern Warfare. I'm not a fan of the genre, but I really enjoyed it. I think I'll give it a 9.0... for now! FOR NOW?! :? Yep. I'll probably change my mind in a month or two! :D I've already changed almost half of my ratings! :lol: But hopefully, I won't change this one. 'Cause I really liked it. I liked the story... and the characters... A LOT!! :) Guess I'm gonna give Dead Space 2 a shot. :| Or not! :P

So... what've you been up to? :)

Alright, guess I'm gone... FOR NOW!! :D

See ya 'round! ;)

Happy New Year!! (Persian Style!!)

Hellooo... :D

How you doin? :)

I'm BACK... in case you noticed I wasn't around!! :P Lately, I've been both busy... and lazy... AT THE SAME TIME!! :| But now that we're on a 2-week vacation, I hope I can log on more frequently! Speaking of vacation... HAPPY NEW YEAR... Persians!! :) Yeah, it's our (Persians') New Year!! (We call it "No Rooz" (meaning "New Day") here in Iran!) 8) And I'm super happy about it!! :D Especially because of the vacation!! :lol:

Looks like every time I come back, I get a level-up!! :lol: Now I'm a Ring King!! :| Hmm... I like this one!! :D It rhymes with King of the Ring!! 8) I wonder if it has anything to do with it!! :?

I finished two games while I wasn't around! I finished Surviving High School 11 on my mobile phone, another great game by Gamelof... :o Oops... I mean EA Mobile!! :P I also finished Alan Wake... A CLASSIC... I gave it a 10 when I played the first few hours of it... and I'm sticking with it!! A 10... for Mr. Wake!! ;) I liked the story... A LOT!! I still don't know what exactly had happened in the ending scene though!! :? Anyway, congratulations Mr. Wake! :D You made your way to my Top 10 Games list, I think! :|

I also got some new games from two of my friends! I got GTA IV, Call of Duty: Black Ops & Modern Warfare, Dead Space 2, Gears of War, Devil May Cry 4 and Army of Two: 40th Day! My friend and I tried Army of Two on co-op mode, but we didn't like it! :| So we quitted, and played NBA 2K11 instead! :P Speaking of NBA... and 2K11... I'm going Association on NBA 2K11 for now, and it's a hell lot of fun!! :D I've just finished my first season! I think I'll go on for another season or two, and then I'm going to try the other games I got!!

Sorry if I haven't commented on your blogs!! :( I'll try my best to catch up!! :)

Alright... I think I'm done here... FOR NOW!! :D

See ya around! ;)

Damn University!!

Hello guys. :)

How you doin'? :D

Sorry if I didn't comment on your blogs. :( It's just that the new semester has just begun, and I'm super busy at the moment. :| Damn University!! :x I don't think I'll be able to log on as often as I used to. :cry: Back To The Reality, I have finished His Last Bow (a Sherlock Holmes book) recently. That'll be the 7th Sherlock Holmes book I've finished so far, and the 2nd book (I think) I've finished this year. There are only two Sherlock Holmes books left: The Valley of Fear and The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes. Then I'll start reading O. Henry's short stories, I guess; or maybe I'll read the Halo novels; or maybe something else! :? Who knows?! :P I decided to put aside FFXIII for the time being, and finish Alan Wake first. So I'm playing Alan Wake for now; if I have the time, that is! :D

So that's it... for now! :)

See ya around! ;)

Die, Die, DIIIIIE Cid Raines!!

Hello everybody. :)

How you guys doin'? :D

I've finished CSI: Miami The Mobile Game 2 on my... mobile phone of course!! :D This game is also... guess what... yeah, a piece of Gameloft's art!! :P You can read the rest, I guess; that it was a great game, I really enjoyed it, and blah blah blah!! :D I've also finished Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper. It was OK, I guess; a 7-out-of-10 would suffice! But I wouldn't recommend it to anybody; there are always better games, I guarantee it! :| I'm playing Final Fantasy XIII for now; and the more I play it, the more I like it! I'm having the time of my life now that I can personalize my party! I've been playing it for about 36 hours... and it's only now that I can take on side missions?!?! What the heck?! :? I mentioned I've been playing it for around 36 hours, didn't I?! Yeah... well, it kinda took me 6 hours to get here, and... let me see... yes, 30 hours to defeat... CID RAAAINES!! :x I was starting to believe this guy was never going to die when I at last defeated him with difficulty! :| Cid Raines... gave me lots of pains!! :lol: I think I can rhyme!! :P Anyway, I was saying... it took me like one hundred thousand game-overs to defeat him!! :? But I felt very triumphant when I finally did defeat him!! 8)

So that's it... for now! :D

Thanks for reading/commenting! :)

See ya around! ;)
