7 Most IMPORTANT VIDEO GAMES in my life!

  • Опубликовано: 4 апр 2017
  • Someone asked me on stream what the most influential games I've ever played were so I thought I'd make this video and take a walk down memory lane with you guys talking about
    super mario brothers, legend of zelda, pacman, everquest, world of warcraft, warcraft 2, final fantasy, and a few more :)
    I talk about why these games meant so much to me and what was going on in my life at the time that made them so influential and important!

    A lot of games have had a huge impact on me. I can not name them all lol. Some of them are games like Super Mario Bros / World, Ninja Turtles for Sega, Sonic 1 and 2, Goldeneye, The World is Not Enough, Duke Nukem, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3, Metal Gear Solid (Pretty much all of them), The GTA trilogy for ps2, The Warriors, and one of my favorite games of all time, if not my favorite is Star Wars Knights of the old Republic....I know that is quite the list, but it is a lot bigger than that trust me lol. So many great games, through out my childhood, and still to this day at the age of 28. I have played games all the way back to the Atari 2600 all the way up to PS4, and tons of PC games. Gaming is my biggest hobby, and I am very passionate about it.

    Games that have changed my life: WoW (of course), Fallout 3/NV/4, KOTOR, SWTOR, The Elder Scrolls series, Super Mario 64, Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Conker's Bad Fur Day (I still taste macaroni and cheese whenever I think of playing that game), actually there's way too many games for me to be able to remember them and list them here.

    Super Mario 64 was the first video game i ever played and what a game to start with! The second I picked up that N64 controller i was hooked and couldn't put the game down and immediately after playing that game i popped in Zelda: Ocarina of Time and I went from someone who was interested in video games to a full blown hardcore gamer.
    The first video game and the ones after it are the games that have the most influence on you and by starting with these two games, i've been a gamer at heart ever since i was 3 years old. No regrets at all.

    My childhood was largely influenced by video games. My earliest memories of my dad are playing together on his Nintendo 64 when my mom went to work. We used to play goldeneye, Mario kart, and many others. I used to get up every Saturday morning and I would setup the Nintendo 64 and play games for hours until someone got up, some of the best memories of my life.
    One Saturday morning, I woke up, as normal, and went downstairs to setup the n64, and it was missing. I immediately called my dad at work, who after questioning me on why I was up at 5:00 am, he told me he didn't know where it was. When he got home, he sat down 6 year old me, and told me that money was tight and he had to sell the n64. I was crushed.
    Here is my list.

    Super Mario land 2
    Donkey long '94
    Mario kart 64
    pac man
    Space invaders
    Ocarina of time

    Honestly grand theft auto III developed me as a gamer when i was little along with some other games
    if i recall corectly my first contact with games was when my family came across some money and my parents were able to afford 2000's laptops. me and my sisters got laptops and the games i used to play were usually those random nifty games you'd find online.there was a madagascar game in wich you had to complete puzzles, a neat board game i used to play online, and then there was world of warcraft, metin 2 , and finally GTA III.
    So , going along on my time periods and age, here's how i became a gamer.
    9 years old - my first ever ps2 i think. the first game i ever played in my life was rayman 3d that made me completely marveled by games and movies.
    10 years old my sister introduced me to different games those being MMO's MMORPG's , puzzle games and so on
    12 years old already had my laptop and PC and i used to play GTA san andreas, GTA IV, the witcher 2, rayman games, CS Source, League of Legends, metro 2033
    14 years old-wich means in the present- i own a ps4 pro , a strong gameing PC and gameing gear, and an xbox one x. i've played great titles, and i can say that i am an open world gamer, my favourite game of all time being The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt by CD Projekt Red.

    Damnit. This video made me go back and restart Final Fantasy VII's Steam version lmao.
    Lunar 2 (The PS1 version) is my most important game. It's what inspired me to become a game designer.
    Also, sidenote: I hate that analogy of characters on an MMORPG not existing. They are, in many cases, characters that people have made entire personalities and backstories for (Especially RPers, such as myself). They're also, even if it's not to that extent, a version of another person. They're the cause of some of the most amazing friendships in the world for people (Myself included. All of the people that I'm the closest to and became such good friends with over the years all originally met over MMORPGs. GW1, GW2, and FF14 specifically, but very much MMORPGs.) They're still in every way another person, and for the time that you spend with them in those games, are very real.

    This is funny. The first and only time I ever shoplifted anything in my life was Zelda. Growing up we had a store called Gameswap about a mile from my house. For the most part my parents bought me any game I wanted. For some reason they would not let me get Zelda. I know now they where having money problems but back then I just thought they where being jerks. So I walked the mile to gameswap down a rode that I have no idea how I did not get hit. It was summer and hot as hell and I had on a very big Cincinnati Bengals jacket because I knew what I was about to do and felt the need for something to hide my ill gotten gains in. I must have lost 10 pounds on that walk.
    When I got to gameswap I was a mess of sweat my jacket was so soaked that it had shrunk. I walked in and headed to the back of the store where they had a large wooden box that they had all the used games in. I found a copy of Zelda and quickly shoved it into my jacket. I then spent an hour walking around the store scared to death to walk out.
    I did make it out of the store and walked the mile back to my house holding my jacket closed as tight as I could thinking that if anyone saw the game I would be busted. When I got home I took my jacked off and hung it on a nail outside by my rooms window with the game in its pocket. I ran inside and to my room locking the door behind me. After getting my jacket and taking the game out of its pocket I felt like the king of the world.
    I still have that game. Everyone now knows how I got it. And I don't really feel bad about it. I guess I should. But every time I look at it I just think of the epic adventure I had not only playing the game but also getting my hands on it.

    Kinda of brings me a little joy to know that Boogie's story is so much like my own, even down to the games. I have a few differences, but they're in my top list because of them being so memorable, or having a special story attached to them. I definitely would put Warcraft and FF7 like Boogie. Super Mario World (SNES), Quake (PC) and Age of Empires (PC) would probably round out my games.
    I think mine are this:
    Super Mario World (SNES) - Lots of personal stuff with this one
    Quake (PC) - My first competitive FPS where I played other people (Gamespy servers!)
    Age of Empires 2 (PC) - Not my first 4X Strategy game but the only I played online forever and met some of my very first online friends (Shout out to IceD if you're out there bud!)
    Xwing vs Tie Fighter (PC) - Another first for me was becoming the commander of a fighter wing for a clan. I helped lead the clan and was the lead pilot in battles.
    Gears of War (Xbox) - My first Xbox game, bought it with the settlment I got for suriving a nasty car wreck. Got to play with Gamespy editors before the site was closed down.
    World of Warcraft (PC) - My umpteenth MMO but one of my favorites, many friends were made, and lost. I'll remember the friends and the late nights on chat more than boss fights.
    Final Fantasy 7 (PS) - This game is the game i think about when people ask me what's my favorite game of all time, what game is special to me, etc.

    Just off the top of my head, mine are as follows:
    Adventure - Seeing it back in the day before computer games were a big thing really stoked my desire to be a programmer.
    Might and Magic 2 - Began a lifelong obsession with RPGs
    Everquest - One of the first times I'd been truly immersed in a computer game's world.
    City of Heroes - The creativity in creating and defining my hero was unparalleled.
    The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind - Unique world combined with deep modding tools made it one of a kind
    Mass Effect - I don't think a videogame has ever told a story as effectively as ME in my opinion.

    I've been adicted to a few MMORPGs during my teens ( Runescape, Silk road, Wow) and since then, tried to stay away from those filthy addicting games. Got hooked again with ESO due to pvp, but now again, trying to stay away. The great side of it is the friendships you build, but there is a vicious part to all MMO that makes you play unhealty amounts.

    Plus, Legend of Zelda was the first game that didn't require you to beat it in one sitting, or copy down a password.

    Spider-man 2 turned me into a hardcore gamer. I must have completed that game at least on two save files.

    Basically my story starts off the same as boogie. I got hooked on video games back in the the early 80s with asteroids, tron, pacman. etc.etc. Also started playing a lot on my Atari 1200xl computer like Star Raiders and centipede,etc.. Although, during and after highschool I stopped with video games , so during the late 80's and 90's no video games until in 1996 or 1997 until I got a PC and hold of a copy of doom(I was late to the game). Wow Doom! Doom was the reason I got back into computers in general, ..but not really back into video games. I really didn't play video games after Doom again until 2004 when I got a PS2 and played a lot of Socom, MGS, GTA Vice City, San Andreas and Conflict Desert Storm on the PS2! I still love those game more than any modern game of today.... for example, GTA 5 was crap, crap music, crap story....but yeah the graphics are great, so what!

    We are very close in age, and I was also very poor growing up. I never saw pac-man except on the 2600 so I thought it was just great. Super Mario was different, I went to a kids birthday party (which I hated to do since we were poor and giving presents to some other kid who was very wealthy compared to me was just humiliating) and his parents had bought him a NES from Japan before the release that christmas in the US. It was amazing like you said, the movement and graphics were soooo amazing compared to the 2600. BTW the NES did not see nation wide release until '86, essentially christmas '86 was the earliest anyone reasonably had one, '87 was really when most everyone got one cause it had the expanded action pack with the gun and duck hunt as well as mario. Same feeling about Zelda as you, got it for my birthday.
    From there our stories diverge, I kept playing supernintendo and genesis. In '94 I went off to college and ruined my GPA while playing the SNES rpgs like subsequent final fantasies and such. THEN I was introduced to MUDDs, started playing a game called Phidar, this was heavily modified diku, and this being the first MMORPG got me hooked, it had all the fun of an RPG plus competitive real time playing. Learned to type really fast. Pretty much didn't play anything else until probably '98 or so when I picked up a cheap playstation and started Final Fantasy VII. I skipped everquest because I could not afford a PC. I played play station not updating to 2 or the xbox for a long time until sometime around 2002 when my roomate got a xbox and Morrowind. OMG that game was such a huge jump in graphics and immersive open world play that I immediately went out and bought the xbox and that game. I spent easily a year playing that. During that time I got a personal computer for school stuff and Final Fantasy XI came out. SO I got back into MMORPG and that game was SO amazing with the difficulty, and the coordination that was required for group combat, I played it for 4 years straight. World of Warcraft came out and I didn't even bother with it, it had nothing on FFXI graphics and challenge. With the heavy Japanese use of FFXI, I never really connected with any people in a real life sense from this game. Around 2008 or so, I did start playing WoW, mostly just for a change of pace, it was fun, and I got into a guild with people who became friends in real life. Played that for a few years, then school and work got in the way and people drifted off.
    So, lots of overlap there. I would say to just give game names, most influential were, Adventure for 2600, Super Mario NES, Phantasy Star II Genesis, Phidar MUDD, Final Fantasy VII PS1, Morrowind XBOX, Final Fantasy XI PC, WoW PC. Haven't bought a new console for myself since the first Xbox.
