It makes sense that you would buy a game if you think it is something you are interested but sometimes it does not work out like that. What are your absolute favorite games that you have never owned personally? Maybe it is a game that you played through a rental service. Maybe it was a game you only played when over at a friends house. Maybe it is an arcade game that you could not justify paying thousands of dollars for your own cabinet at home.

In my case my absolute favorite game that I never owned would have to be Super Mario Galaxy. I'm not sure why I never bought it myself. I was a Wii owner since day 1 and bought lots of games for it. I borrowed it from a friend and completed it all the way through. I had a blast and loved every second of it but of course I gave it back. I was surprised like most people when Super Mario Galaxy 2 was announced. I bought that one the day it released and even wrote a review for it on this site. I loved SMG 2 as well. I think I liked the first one a bit more just because it was original. I still have my SMG 2 copy. Perhaps if they release an HD port on the Switch of the original Galaxy I will buy that.

Close runnerups are Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metal Gear Solid 3. I played them on the VIta and rented them from Gamefly. I'm not even sure why I wanted ot jump in the series in the first place. Both games were awesome, especially Snake Eater. Because of those games I want to play the rest of the series. I bought MGS4 for PS3 for $2 a few months back. I haven't played it yet thought because I wanted to play the original Metal Gear Solid first. I had a hard time, but finally tracked down a used copy of The Twin Snakes for the Gamecube that I will play on the Wii. Maybe I will buy the MGS HD collection on PS3 so I can play Peace Walker as well.

Anyway I went off on a tangent.

Main point is what games do you love but not own?
