My very first game was Super Mario 64.
At some point, I transitioned from owning mainly Nintendo consoles to owning almost all Sony consoles. The Wii U is my first Nintendo console since the N64. What can I say? Sony's console generation mascots appeal to me more sometimes, and I prefer playing multi-plats on Sony consoles as well. Games that tend to pull my nostalgia buttons are: Banjo-Kazooie, Golden Eye 007, Conker, Ratchet and Clank: Going Commando, Jak and Daxter, and Sly Cooper. Special honors to the staff roll of SM64 for still making me tear up.
My favorite games of all time are the same ones that give me those nostalgic feels in addition to:
-Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time: Beautiful game with amazing characters, beautiful graphics, and a good story.
-Bioshock: Infinite: May the Circle Be Unbroken.
-BloodBorne:(it's given me Stockholm Syndrome, tbh)
-Bayonetta 1 and 2: *wolf-whistle* Insane and over the top but never unfair. Action games will never be the same thanks to Platinum Games.
-Sonic 2, 3 & Knuckles: These games blew my mind when I first played them. Good music and gameplay.
-Sparkster: Rocket Knight Adventures: He's a possum with a sword and jet-pack.
-Rayman Legends/Origins: These games ooze with style.
-Donkey Kong Country 2 and Tropical Freeze: Difficult and fun.
-Kingdom Hearts 2: A convoluted story at times, but the game is still solid to this day.
-Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch: This game gave me for sad feels than a game has any right to.
-Mass Effect 2: I wouldn't know where to start.
My taste in games is kind of all over the place.
