Games That Left An Impact

What games have you played which left a huge impact on you? It could have made you want to start gaming, or made you more interested in a certain genre, or had an emotional impact on you. Anything like that, and more.

For me TimeSplitters Future Perfect really got me interested in shooters; unfortunately I found out that not many were actually like that.

Double Dash was what got me into Nintendo. Yeah, I was pretty late for my age.

In 2002, I had just been placed in a private school - a very small one at that. I was about to be 13. There were only about 20 students. There was one that sat on my right. He was actually my cousin as it turned out, and lived on my road and yet we had never met. His name was Jeffrey. He didn't talk very much. He mostly just nodded or shrugged, and he seemed to get annoyed if I tried to actually carry on conversation with him. It took a few weeks, but eventually he did speak to me. At first, it was just one to three word phrases, and gradually he warmed up to me. We began to hang out at each others houses after school on a pretty much daily basis. We were both gamers and we were both getting Gamecubes that year for Christmas.

So, that September our school had a float in a local parade. All of the students were riding it except for us. I walked on one side of the float, and Jeffrey walked on the other as we threw out candy to the crowd. Something happened up ahead, and the parade came to a momentary stop. I relaxed, and shifted my weight onto one foot. I wasn't aware that it was directly in front of the float's wheel. When the parade began again - quite suddenly, I might add - my foot was broken under the wheel of the float. Pretty horrible, right? Well, everything happens for a reason and something good often comes out of a bad situation.

In the middle of November, my folks gave me a "sympathy gift" - a Nintendo Gamecube, and Super Smash Bros. Melee! I was ecstatic. I wasn't supposed to have this for another month and a half! Jeffrey and I spent hours a night playing Super Smash Bros., both competitively and co-operating to unlock everything. at this point in our lives, neither of us ever got on the internet to socialize or look up prerelease game information, so we had no clue who or what was in the game. All we knew was that it was amazing.

About a week after this, Jeffrey came over holding a new game - Animal Crossing. "Why did you buy that? You won't have a Gamecube for a month." I asked, with a bit of a chuckle. "It was only $30 and I figured we could just play it on yours. You can play first since it's your system." he said as he tore into the packaging. We quickly swapped Melee's red and black disc for Animal Crossing's lime green one. When I first began playing, we laughed at the simple graphics. We joked that it looked like a Nintendo 64 game. We were completely oblivious to the reality that it was, in fact, a Nintendo 64 game at that time. I named my character "Caleb" after myself. I can't recall what I named my town. I chose a house, and played for about half an hour before saving, and handing the controller to Jeffrey. We talked about how charming the game was, and I mentioned that it seemed addictive (boy was that an understatement).

After he played for about 45 minutes or so, we went back to playing Melee for the night. When he got ready to leave, he left Animal Crossing for me to enjoy. It wasn't like he could play it anyway. I quickly bought my own copy of the game, and returned Jeffrey's. I started a new town on the memory card included, and told Jeffrey about my experiences almost constantly. It probably irked him a bit, because by the time he had a Gamecube, his manual was wrinkled from reading it near constantly.

That day finally did come, though. When it did, the game became an obsession. It was basically all we ever talked about or did. We discovered the code system and started sending each other random items all the time just because we were intrigued by it. You know those pages in the backs of manuals with a notes section that you never use? Well, we used them in our Animal Crossing booklets. Every morning before school, we would swap manuals, and there would be new codes for us to enter when we got home. It didn't stop there, we called each other on the phone with codes all the time too.

This went on for some time. I don't think we even considered putting the game down for about 2 or 3 years. The day finally did come where Jeffrey stopped playing. I didn't quit though. In face, until about a year ago, I still played pretty regularly. About 2 years ago, I was helping Jeffrey move his television. Once we had it moved, and moved the entertainment center, we discovered 2 Gamecube memory cards underneath. One of them was his Animal Crossing card. He asked me if I still played, and I said yes, he gave me the memory card that still had his original town on it. It has a simple, corny name - J Town. I'm sure you get it. I never deleted the data. I still have the card, and occasionally load up his town just because.

So Melee and Animal Crossing are two of the most influential for me. Jeffrey is still like my brother, and I would do anything for him. These two games helped us bond.

Pokemon and Mario pretty much sparked my interest in playing games. And I'd say that playing Ace Attorney helped broaden my horizons a bit when it came to choosing what games to play.

Ace Attorney made me more interested in games like that and 999 too. It also made me look into games with a more anime art style, which is how I found Persona 2, 3 & 4.

Also, Sacrifice on the PC was what got me into RTS. I still haven't found one as good as it, but it's made me love the genre. The next best things I found were Dungeon Keeper & Starcraft.
