Video Games chart final.png

A few observations:
Fav game: All the custom PWADs for this make this the game I've played the most and have enjoyed the most.

Fav series: Litterally the reason I keep buying Playstations. Insomniac is the best.

Best soundtrack: I just love every track on this. They create an atmosphere unlike any other game. Celeste and A Hat In Time are close behind

Protag: First game I ever played was Sonic 2, and I've been a huge fan for life. Watched the TV shows, read the Archie comics series, etc. Could never get into the modern games, but always will love the character

Villain: Memorably funny and frightening

Story: Who but these serious discussions about anxiety and depression in my retro-styled platformer?

Haven't played: I've heard it's very good! Looks super charming.

Love: I think this one gets way too much hate. Much better than the first, and I love the sheer amount of enemies you can defeat.

Hate: I've always hated the controls in this game, even back when it was first released. Made it unplayable to me.

Art: The old-school hand-drawn look is AMAZING

Ending: Probably the only game that I had to spend a half hour after just processing what happened.

Boss: Honestly, I couldn't think of many, but I always liked this boss back in the day, and the music with it was awesome.

Childhood: This game is so addicting. I've got a copy coming from Limited Run.

Relax: Super fun 3D platformer full of charm. It's only not relaxing if you're doing Death Wish

Stress: You want to yell at your friends in a panic?

Come back: This is really the entire first trilogy. Just solid fun.

Guilty: I honestly liked it. I haven't played it since it came out, but I didn't hate it. Only part I didn't like was an underwater part with a ton of Octobrain babies that killed me a ton. Other than that, it was good, but nothing special.

Hours: I'm still very active in RB, with my Rivals crew in the top 10 on Xbox. Drums = fun!

Subject to change. This will do for now

There wasn't a good chance to mention some of the other games I really love. I'd put F.E.A.R. for the best sound design, for example. A slot for "favorite glitches" would be relevant too

The Odyssey 2 was all we had in the house growing up as a kid for years, and still has some of my favorite game box art of all time. Which makes sense because it would have been difficult to sell some of them based on in-game screenshots I imagine, so the artwork had to really sell it.



I'd really like to find out the artist(s)'s name, and see if they've done anything else.

all yall touhou mfs they should rename this place to touhouworld (jk touhou 9.5 and 10 own)

Basically, a forum in Misc being about Touhou wouldn't be a bad idea since there are lots of Touhou fans here

i guess it's cheating to put an un-released game as "want to play". if i had to pick another i'd probably say witcher 3. which i'm reminded of because it's $10 USD on gog.com right now. who knows if i'll ever play it though lol

i know zelda 2 isn't really "hated" anymore, but whatever

This was more difficult than I thought, but I finally put together a fairly satisfying list:




The hardest categories for me were "you love everyone hates" because I wasn't sure what to put there, then I remember fairly liking NAM (I played it a long time ago) and it seems it's not a very well liked game, so I threw that there. The other was "stressful" and "guilty pleasure" I almost posted it swapped, but Coffee Rush is very stressful as fun as it is, and whilst i don't consider B3 to be a "guilty pleasure" match 3 games are often made fun of lol, so I guess it can go there. Childhood Game had so many options, even DOOM and Unreal could both fit there, but I chose Rollercoaster Tycoon 'cause that was a big childhood favorite (I still love it today). Mystery Dungeon has a lot of hours simply because I have restarted that game on several occasions when I was underpowered and got stuck.... so yeah... of course other games on this list have a ton of hours too lol.

Oh my god, yes, Devil Daggers! Holy heck that game is stressful. No other game has made me bob and weave in my chair while playing it quite like Devil Daggers has. Hearing these guys:  



breathe/laugh/sound fucked up down your neck as they're catching up to you is so fucking unnerving.

@sittinkittin Can I watch your top replay at some ID?

You posted a gif of the blind skull, this is the one that breathes behind you:


What's even more stressful is that it's faster than you unless you time the accelerating jump perfectly.

I treat it as an exercise at keeping my heartrate steady. And that doesn't really last long. Hoping to get that elusive scarled dagger one day (at 500 I believe).

Ooohh, it's those skulls that breathe! I'm a Devil Daggers noob, heh. I only played it for 6 hours. Maybe I'll get back into it some day! :3 This is the best I ever did:

Can't be assed doing a graphic. Some tough choices to make but this is a best guess.


All time favourite: Probably Skyrim Special Edition.

Favourite Series: Doom

Soundtrack: Quake II.

Protagonist: Lara Croft as depicted in Legend, Anniversary and Underworld.

Villain: Deathshead in Wolfenstein: The New Order. Hated him violently and offing him felt sweet.

Best Story: Bioshock

Haven't played but want: Nothing.

You love everyone hates: Can't think of one.

You hate everyone loves: Dark Souls

Best Art: Bioshock

Favourite Ending: Bioshock 2: Minerva's Den.

Favourite Boss Fight: Time Crisis. Once completed the game on a single credit and did the entire final boss fight with no hits left. Talk about adrenaline rush.

Childhood Game: Speedball 2

Relaxing Game: Skyrim. Lulls me into a trance almost.

Stressful Game: Doom Eternal. A lot to like but some really, really frustrating moments.

Game You Always Come Back To: Skyrim and Classic Doom.

Guilty Pleasure: None. I hate this term and am not ashamed of the things I like.

Tons of Hours Played: Skyrim, Classic Doom.


Never played Skyrim. I intend to one day. Deathshead was an astonishing bad guy: good call. And Bioshock was brilliant.


Also, I am borrowing your text as a template, hope u don't mind. :)



All time favourite: Doom OG, Doom 2016 or Deus Ex


Favourite Series: Doom


Soundtrack: Deus Ex Human Revolution


Protagonist: Amanda Ripley, Alien Isolation. Or Gordon Freeman. Or Doomguy. Or a bizarre lovechild of all three: Introducing... Amanda Freeguy


Villain: Andrew Ryan from Bioshock, or Deathshead from Wolfenstein TNO


Best Story: Prey 2017


Best Universe: Deus Ex Series, Bioshock Series, Hob, S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Prey 2017


Haven't played but want: Atomic Heart


You love everyone hates: Single Player games with no microtransactions lol


You hate everyone loves: JRPG's (Though I don't really hate them, just never played them.)


Best Art: Hob


Favourite Ending: Beating DoomRL on a shotgun run/Nightmare/80% kill rate, to receive my one and only ever angelic badge.


Favourite Boss Fight: boss fights *shudders


Childhood Game: Wolfenstein. 


Relaxing Game: I don't do relaxing games. I play them for the challenge or at least the mental engagement.


Stressful Game: Alien Isolation. By a long way.


Game You Always Come Back To: Anything that I can play like chess: Know the moves and the rules and just enjoy. Examples are OG Doom and Jupiter Hell, W40K Sanctus Reach, OG Quake, Quake 2, Teleglitch


Guilty Pleasure: Doom mapping. 


Tons of Hours Played: OG Doom, Jupiter Hell, DoomRL, Quake


Honorable Mentions: Any FPS game with a great story set in an interesting and engaging universe. Stalker. Dishonored. Bioshock. Prey. Borderlands. System Shock. Deus Ex
