Is there a videogame you love more than anyone else?

Is there a videogame you love more than anyone else? photo



[Every so often, you may see some of these mini-features appear on the front page. They are just short editorial thoughts meant to start an interesting conversation in the comments and c-blogs. Enjoy! Now get to discussing!]

In the last few weeks, I played through Super Metroid again for, maybe, the fiftieth time. While saying “OMG I have played that game at least fifty times!” is usually quite the exaggeration, with me and Super Metroid, I think a statement like that may just be true.

I adore the game so much that I truly feel I love Super Metroid more than anyone else.

Someone has to be the game’s #1 fan, right? Why can’t it be me?!

I play the game with such an unabashed respect and passion that it’s hard to even put into words how I feel about it. I fawn over every gorgeous bit of visual storytelling; I proudly pat myself on the back every time I perform one of those little super-fan secrets that a lot of people don’t know about; I even cry over the ending sequence every single time.

If there were a scientific magical scale that could measure everyone’s love of a specific game, I think I could very well be at the top of the Super Metroid one. Heck, I am going to invent this scale just so I can make it official.

So, now that we have established that I love Super Metroid more than anyone else on the planet, it’s time to share. What game (or games) do you truly think you love more than anyone? Do you have a game you could confidently say you adore more than anyone in the world? Defend your pick(s) in the comments!

Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is out today, and it kicks the crap out of All the Bravest

Final Fantasy: All the Bravest was a travesty. It played itself, it was pretty abrasive in its pandering, and the microtransactions were so pushy that it was hard to enjoy it without feeling like you were constantly being sold something. Final Fantasy: Record Keeper is another free-to-play game in the same vein, but it's a much better effort that doesn't feel straight-up insulting to fans.more

Escalator Pitch: Nina Freeman argues for perpetual Sailor Moon cosplay
