K, this thread is for posting other games that you really love aside from Psychonauts. Honestly, I'm using this to my advantage because I haven't played a good game since Psychonauts and am desperate for a decent title.

So here's what I want.
Game title: (Ex) Finaly Fantasy VII
System: What system is it on? (Ex) Ps1
Genre: RPG
Availability: Is it likely that you'll find this game...if so, where is it most likely to be found? (Ex) Probably getting rare, most likely in places where they still sell Playstation games/ Used game stores.
Why do you like it? : (ex) Amazing storyline/ Excellent characters/ TONS of stuff to do.

Game title: Deus Ex: Invisible War
System : Reccomended for the X-box, but on the PC as well.
Genre: RPG/FPS/Physics fun.
Availibility: Getting harder to find, but if found, usually at a discount of $7 or less.
Why do you like it? Multiple endings, factions, ways to play, RAGDOLL PHYSICS FTW.

Game Title: Katamari Damaci/ We <3 Katamari. (It honestly has the heart symobol and not the word love in the title.)
System: PS2
Genre: Misc.
Availibility: Sequels pretty easy to find. A bit harder for the original though.
Why do you like it? Dude. You roll things up. You get an immence feeling of size. In one level, you eventually end up rolling up the ISLAND You start on.

More later me thinks.

Heh, I had a demo of that game, and it was hilarious because we couldn't take pictures for crap, and the ghosts only wanted hugs.

Game title: Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal
System: Ps2
Genre: Action/adventure
Availability: Gamestop and Walmart
Why do you like it? : Sweet blow-em-up action and crazy guns!

Game title: Prince of Persia
System: All current-gen
Genre: Action/Adventure
Availability: Meh, it's kinda old now. Gamestop or Amazon
Why do you like it? : Sweet-@$$ platforming, and a really good (if simple) story, the end actually made me and my sister cry. It's been the only game to ever do that, it was just so ... not sad, but ... bittersweet. If you beat it, you'd know what I meant.

I just want to voice my opinion on this game, and because not everyone always like that. I'll put it in spoiler tags if you don't feel like reading my ramblings.

Well what do you know, a game I've heard alot of good things about! What I learned is that there is a formula to this game that you will find yourself following very quikly.

1. Enter room.

2. Jump around and do all kinds of crazy stuff.

3. Maybe get a new item/heal yourself.

4. Beat the crap out of sand monsters that have no chance of beating you what so ever.

5. Insert plot step here.

6. Leave room to hallway.

7. Go back to step 1.

That was fun.

True, but I still loved it. And really ... have you seen the end?

All Prince of Persia games are pretty good. Well acted, difficult. Excellent title.

Although in the recent Sands of Time, the final boss was way too easy to beat.

Game Title: Castlevania: Lament Of Innocence/Curse of darkness.
System: Ps2
Genre: Action/adventure.
Availability: Probably wherever.
Why do you like it: The acting and story line kind of suck, and the characters aren't all that great. But it is a fun game.

Interactive cutscenes are very intuitive.

Intuitive?

Intuitive!?

You stupid Narutard, I think you mean innovative. If you don't know what the word means, don't use it.
