LittleBigPlanet Ratchet & Clank Crash Bandicoot 
I was just reading something about the Resistance series by Insomniac and a comment mentioned the multiplayer of the first two games and it got me thinking back to how awesome those modes were back in the day. I spent so many hours in those, probably enough to make them get into my top three most played online games for the PS3. Manchester on Resistance 1 was always either trying to keep the other team off the roof of the cathedral or hiding out in one of the houses around the edge of the map. I'd usually hide out in a house by myself and grenade people from the windows as they went by (my building was a poor sniper spot so no one often bothered to go in it) until someone would decide to try and get rid of me by coming inside. ROFL

The game I find myself thinking about the most though and everything that came with it is LittleBigPlanet 2. That game is just so special to me and I wish LBP3 had been able to engage me more than it did. Sad

What about you guys? What memories do you have or what games do you often find yourself thinking back on?

Some of my fondest memories were from FTL: Faster than Light:

  • My first victory. It was in the Stealth A cruiser (not an easy ship to play, which made it all the more impressive), and it came after a string of at least 100 straight losses. That really felt like an achievement Grin !

  • My first time using a Weapon Pre-Igniter (which fully-charges all weapons before the battle). That was great fun Grin .

  • That time when I got this weapons setup. The Burst Laser II is considered a top-tier weapon: it fires three laser shots every 12 seconds (faster with a skilled-up weapons guy), and having one on your ship is always very handy indeed. Only, as you can see from the screenshot, I didn't have *one*. I picked up two from random events; bought a third one at a store; and the fourth came from my ship's starting setup. This meant I was able to fire off a volley of 12 laser shots every 12 seconds. (On top of that, I had a Hacking system - and, if I used it on the enemy's Piloting... then, all 12 of those shots were guaranteed to hit. Yeah, that game went right into Easy Mode LOL !!!

  • This screenshot, of my lowest-ever winning score on Hard difficulty. I got no luck all game: I got very little scrap from enemy ships, and what I did get was mostly spent on repairs and consumables, rather than upgrades. However, I managed to use every ounce of my skill to scrape something together, and eke over the finish line.

I wouldn't even know where to begin with this. Most everyone here knows how much of an obsessive gamer I am, so you can imagine that I have a long list of fond gaming memories. Trying to sit here and pick out the ones I'd consider to be the ones I'm most fond of would be a very difficult task.

I guess I can talk about one instance that, while it may not be my fondest memory, is a memory that really helped me out at a bad time.

The memory in particular comes from Golden Sun. The reason being is that Golden Sun became one of my favorite RPGs ever and I found the game completely by random chance. It was back in July 2002 when I was 12-years old and I had just had my accident that caused me to suffer breaking the Ulna and Radius in both of my arms at the same time. Stuck in full arm casts for my entire summer vacation, I had just gotten the OK from my doctor that I could start playing my GBA for an hour or two a day to help get an early start on restoring motion to my hands/fingers, my parents took me to Best Buy to pick out a couple of games to play. That's when I saw Golden Sun among the games, and without knowing anything about it, I picked it. Turned out to be one of the best gaming picks of my life.

It's a memory that sticks with me because it was a very bright spot in what was a very terrible time in my life. It was the last summer I was going to spend in my hometown, and instead of being able to use the summer to spend time with all of my friends for the last time, I was instead stuck inside the entire summer with two broken arms. That was a pretty huge bummer, so finding Golden Sun out of complete random chance, and having it become one of my favorite games of all-time was a huge boost to my happiness at the time.

This was also the summer I discovered Final Fantasy Tactics, and I absolutely hated it at first. But a few months after playing it for the first time and dropping it right away, something made me go back to it and I'm glad I did, because it also became one of my favorite games.
