Persona 5. Like I literally played for 2 hours when I got it and was like, "meh this game is wierd and hard to follow." Now this was at like 3 in the morning and I was already tired and could not focus, so 2 weeks later I tried it again from the beginning...and holy crap...

Needless to say I was hooked and it has easily become one of my top games this gen. If it comes to Switch, I will play it again. If not...I will still play it again! Also I will be getting 3 and 4 eventually because of it, as I am now a true Persona fan.

I didn't even want to play it, actually.

Same here, but it started appearing in PSN sales for 5 bucks, so I picked it up. The entire time I couldn't believe what they managed to squeeze out of the PS3, but later I played some other later year games of the PS3 and TLoU didn't seem so impressive anymore on replay.

Deus Ex (2000) - a game that pushes the boundaries of what the video game medium is capable of to a degree unmatched to this very day.

Red dead redemption
The Witcher
Rocket league
Don't Starve
Killzone 2
Farcry 3



I'm surprised at the mentions of Persona 5 here. I remember there being a lot of hype for that game, and personally, while I haven't played it, I have always wanted to (post-release, that is) and have high expectations of it whenever I do.



I'd say most recently is Titanfall 2, I only got round to playing it last month, and I wasn't expecting TOO much from it, since I went in thinking "Yeah it's just another FPS after finishing Doom, can't see it doing much to impress me", but I wasn't bothered since I only paid a fiver or so for it a while back anyway... turns out I absolutely loved it from start to finish, the gameplay was amazing, controls were tight, everything was flowing smoothly, the graphics were great, the music was epic, and it actually had a really great story despite being on the short end of things. It's very easily one of the best FPS games I've played in the last decade, and I recommend anyone that hasn't played it yet to give it a go!

Probably Phoenix Wright. It's absolutely lovely.

I went back to platinum it after I platined God of War this year, and I still find it very impressive.

Went to beat it again on the hardest level and play the online, but I just couldn't rush it, way too good to skip stuff hahaha.

Such a masterpiece.



Dead Rising on X360.

I didn't have any expectations but ended up enjoying it immensely. Dead Rising 2 as well.

Starlink actually became one of my favourite gaming moments of recent years. I only bought it for the star fox crossover but it does something that even the biggest releases often dont, its actually fun to play.
