Recently?
Tearaway left me just feeling good and happy.
Journey left me in awe
Last of Us left me in silence for a while.

I think those kind of games recently stuck with me.


If we're talking about recent experiences;

Portal 2 left me with a warm feeling inside and a big smile.

Transistor left me very inspired.

Bioshock Infinite left me in silence for a good while.

And Bastion left me with a big smile, too.

All of these games left me with something I'll cherish for a long time, and I played them all in 2014. lol



I'm now filled with determination.

Well, there is actually a lot of games that make me fell this, but for the sake of the thread I'll go just with THE one.

The Legend of Dragoon (oh, what a surprise BraLoD).

It's just that everytime I play it... it's exact this, pure magic, I get into it, immersed, and I get myself actually smiling a lot while playing, and doesn't need to be funny moments, it's a pure expression of joy, passion. I know everything that will happen, actually almost every dialogue line as soon as they start, and even so, it's an absurdly rewarding experience. And I like to do that completely alone by the way, any distraction is unacceptable! XD

That's very cool! I have that kind of sensation playing Dragon's Dogma.



Metroid Prime. Fought the Omega Pirate this morning. Still gives me feels.



A lot of my favorite games do that. However I was really in a slump when I played Ratchet and Clank Going Commando the first time. I was laughing and smiling the whole time like I hadn't in awhile. It was my first Ratchet game and since then Up Your Arsenal, Tools of Destruction, and A Crack in Time all did it for me. There are others but Ratchet and Clank always seem to nail it and make me feel really good when I get to play another one which is why I'm excited for the reboot this year :)

I've always read Dragon's Dogma is a great game, I should try it sometime.
But I should try too many other games as well that's hard to try all of them xD
But it's a nice thing, isn't it? Actually even watching people reactions to it on youtube makes me happy.
I've actually watched several playthroughs of it, and it's a pretty big game XD



Every time a new MGS game comes out.

Same, to be honest, for me to consider a game one of my favorites, it needs to show me "the magic", since that feeling it's basically pure enjoyment, and for a game to give such feeling, it's just something wonderful.

Let's hope that the R&C reboot will be good.

I'm bored, so I decided to ask you guys something that I'd probably never ask someone in real life; which games would you say that they a certain "magic" to them? What I mean by "magic" is the feeling, yeah, THAT feeling, the one that can sometimes unexplicably leave you smiling and just bright up your day by simply, ya know, feelin' it. Do you guys have any particular game that just makes you feel that way, or I'm just a wierdo that likes to have a sentimental connection with videogames? Let me know in the comments below.

Funny you should mention that...

Xenoblade Chronicles baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
