I've been thinking lately of some of those games that I played years ago and that still stays with me. Shenmue would be on that list obviously. Silent hill too, I keep finding myself returning to the music of Silent hill as it reminds me of the games so much. Silent Hill was really something, so many years ago and still I remember clearly how it made me feel. I found those games to be quite scary back in the day. Still the story and the music and the environments was quite something, no mater how scary you still wanted to find out more.
Shadow of destiny was another one, and Max Payne. Shadow of destiny was so different from most games and had a great story, I miss it. And Max Payne, I love them dearly still. It was just something about those games. Of the most recent games I've played I think Dear Esther and Bioschock Infinite will stay with me for years to come.
What about you? What games are staying with you still?
