Is there a videogame you love more than anyone else?

Jan 25 // Chad Concelmo

[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!
