I'm a very strong believer of games as art, and my personal definition of art is 'something that changes the way, or makes you think'. I've had a lot of games change my way of thinking, and that have moulded me as a person. This being said I'd really like to hear what games you all hold near and dear to your heart, or games that have made a change in you. As some of you might know I'm working and learning to be a game developer myself, and my passions really lie in games so hearing these things just put a big old spring in my step! They don't have to be technically good games, they can be anything that's put a smile on your face. Granted, it's not very polite of me to ask for your favourites without a breakdown of my own: It's not easy to pick a favorite game when you have so many, but I do know which game has made the biggest impact on me personally. As a lot of people know by far my favourite game series is the Legend of Zelda, and if you ask me which game is my favorite my head will probably explode. However, The a Legend of Zelda - Ocarina of Time had a huge impact on me growing up. It was my obsession, I played it constantly, talked about it all the time and since 1998 I've probably beaten it over 50 times. It opened my eyes to fantasy and adventure, I was a cool (handsome) hero in a fantastic world saving the princess from a big (hot??) evil villain. It just made a little imprint on who I turned out to be, and I've played every Zelda game to date because of it. It's like we've grown up together.
