OP, let me add that heavy Rain made me feel the same way at the time, too.  That part where those guys attacked Maddison in her apt. was so intense and scary, the first time I played through it that I instantly came on this site and posted that it was the most incredible gaming moment, ever.  I can agree with you on the quality of Heavy Rain, buddy.

This gen it's definately Heavy rain. Grim Fandango is still my favourite adventure game of all time, closely followed by Ico.



System Shock 2. Although the game is nearly 12 years old now very few games recently have been as engrossing for me.  Still to this day has been my favourite single player experience.

You know, maybe my playthrough of Heavy Rain go diluted by multiple playthroughs.  Heavy Rain was full of "I can't believe this is in a fucking game!!" moments.  It doesn't hold up to repeated playthroughs (because you already know what's happening) but, as far as this gen is concerned, I'll go ahead and say that the first playthrough of Heavy Rain is the most awesome couple of days of gaming that I've had all generation--as far as drawing me into a gaming world is concerned.

Heroes of Might and Magic 3. I've spent so many hours playing this game again and again. And after so many years the graphics still seem fine to me. Thank you 3DO for this masterpiece!

It would probably be something along the lines of a tie between Age of Mythology, Dragon Warrior (Quest) III remake on GBC and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time. Since I don't really play multiplayer (rarely local and almost never online) too much, that's pretty much straight from my "best video game of all time" list.

I kinda misread the topic, Best single player experience was prob Zelda:OoT partly because I kept bumming around not wanting the game to finish. Mass Effect series did the same thing to me, I wanted to make sure I finished all quests before killing bad boss. FFIX was the only game in my entire experience (bar sonic 1 and altered beast) that makes me want to play it again and again and again and again.

FFIX is significant in that aspect for me because it is a single player game but there is sooo much to do before you can free reign and the fact that I was happy to do this time and time again shows what a great experience I had with it :)

And here I thought I was the only one.  After the end of FFIX, was the only real game in where I was legitimately sad it was ending.  One of the most "Fantasy" driven FF's ever made.

About Heavy Rain, I did find the game quite good in terms of its story and intense moments, which I agree were pretty cinematic and effective.  Although, I spotted the ending too early and was kind of sitting on the idea saying "I'm hoping this isn't how it's going to be," hoping that I was wrong.
