Hints galore!

#7: The cake is very real
#6: It was the start of this developer's obsession with atmospheric phenomenas
#5: It was the start of this developer's obsession with dark worlds (I think it was the first)
#4: The story of this game follows the story of a secondary hero who falls in the hands of the enemy and comes back to become of the greatest vilains of all-time.
#3: The online was good DAMMIT!
#2:
The story of this acclaimed sequel tells us the hero didn't achieve squat in the first game but the game couldn't really keep it name if the title character didn't come back.
#1: Features a RickRolling robot.

#7 - Portal

#4 - Starcraft... 2?  Possibly 1, I'm not that clued up on the SC canon.

#3 - Brawl

Don't know the others, sorry.  Also, must've missed these when you posted them!

#7: You fell into the trap. It's another game with a cake as a reward

#4: StarCraft: Broodwar is the right answer

#3: You got it.

Oh! Then I know it! Or at least, there's only one game I know where you get cake in the end. Super Mario 64!

You got it! So all that's left is:

#2:

I've altered #6 to make it easier.

#6. Final Fantasy VII (Cloud? Although VI had Terra, that's not related to the atmosphere.)
#1 - Borderlands 2?

#6 is right. After Cloud in VII, we got Squall, Lightning and Snow. Also Sora (from Kingdom Hearts) apparently means Sky.

#1: Never played a Borderlands game. My game is much older.

#01

'The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time'

for the Nintendo 64 released in 1998.

 

This unshakable game will forever stand at the top of the growing piles of video-games. Since that first time I popped in that grey cartridge in my Nintendo 64 all those years ago I knew I was in for a truly epic adventure. Perhaps even more than 'Super Mario 64' (#3), 'Ocarina of Time' opened my eyes in ways I didn't think possible. Also, in those days before the internet and at the young age I was, I knew this game was coming. I wanted it, I wanted it bad, the very first game to hype me up. In fact, back then I was drawing pictures of the box-art and showing them to family-members saying "See, this is what I want, this is what it looks like."

I wasn't disappointed. Oh no, I even got more than I could have hoped for. As far as I'm concerned, the game is perfect. Or at least as close to it as a game can possibly be. Every aspect is top notch, and the N64 shone like it never had. To this day, I could play this game again and again and still be amazed. I didn't want it to ever end, and when it did, it resulted in the only instance where I got emotional over a game. Many times, when I play a newer game, I get annoyed because aspects are always less well done than in this game. The game is extremely polished and streamlined. Everything is thought through. No wonder new Zelda games are always compared to 'Ocarina of Time'.

The remake on the 3DS re-captured that feeling perfectly. Yes, the game definitely stands the test of time. The 3DS version streamlines some aspects even further, even though they had never annoyed me. Graphics and sound quality were improved so we finally got to see Nintendo's vision for the game in the nineties. Still, it never captured the magic of the original game. Maybe it's that beautiful, strong golden logo on the deep-black European box. A box that still takes up the most prominent spot on my shelves.

I bow to this game. No, to this legend.

Hints for my top 3. If nobody guess by midnight, I'll just post the names.

#3 An RPG that basically featured medieval power rangers. There was a red ranger, two green rangers, two white rangers, a purple ranger, a blue ranger, a silver ranger, a yellow ranger, and a black ranger.

#2 Bunny races, rotten sashimi, and a Waloon sword.

#1 Greatest RPG in the history of RPGs. Your main character was actually 3 people. Or was he 4?

1. Metroid Prime (same last year)

Perfect Score. I believe i've spoken enough about this kickass game over the years to have explained how cool it is. Happy new year!



Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

@ Mr. Khan: Ditto.

1. Metroid Prime

Yeah, I've already said just about everything I've ever wanted to say about Prime. It's God's gift to speedrunners. It's a console FPS with glorious, complete single-player focus in every aspect (including the somewhat contoversial controls). It's a first-person action/adventure in which navigation itself is a wonderful puzzle. Brilliant level design, brilliant presentation, brilliant score, brilliant enemy and boss design... it's just plain goddamn brilliant.

Can't wait to see if the successor to my #2 can actually top it.
