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

I have these exact feeling while playing through Paper Mario, though, I honestly try to forget some of the game, so when I revisit it feels fresh and fun to re-experience. I'm always discovering new details, and stuff I didn't know before, it's just a joyful ride all around. :)

Though, I'm curious, I know next to nothing about the game you mentioned, would you recommend it to me? I like to go into games knowing nothing about them, it's truly the only game way to let the game speak by itself, and if you tell me that the game is good, who knows, I might like it too. So, what system is it for?

It's kibda expensive to get the original, but it's available cheap at PSN, it doesn't seem to look that good there though, as it's a PS1 game.

If you think you can take it, I strongly recommend it. It's a pretty big game, a four disk JRPG, it's linear and not that hard (the US version, the original JP version is). It had a unique battle system, you'll need to actually spend time on battles, it's not pick an attack on a list and use it, it's do it by yourself, you pick one and do it slash by slash, you fail it's your fault, less damage, harder and longer fights.I just love it, some other people don't xD

Try it, you can end up loving it as I do XD

The Super Mario series, and most other Nintendo games in general. Also Halo: CE, especially when playing couch co-op with a friend. Never gets old.

Castlevania symphony of the night, i think i have beaten this game and collected all the items like 20 times on various devices. Maybe i should buy a 360 just to play it again with archievements.

I think all of the Zelda games have that magic in them, you start playing during the day then look outside and it's dark.

The Devil May Cry games had me the same way.

I've lost count of how many times i've hailed Metroid Prime. But yeah... Metroid Prime had that "magic" feeling.

That atmosphere and music never fails to put a smile on my face :)

You are officially the man, Prime was magical.

Grim Fandango. Play the remaster, it's out now!

Final Fantasy IX, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Paper Mario TTYD and Rayman Legends are some of the games that make me smile everytime I play them!
