Video Game Pilgrimages

I’m a little curious, what are the video games you always come back to? Any game you can’t go more than a year without playing through once. For me it’s Ghostbusters the video game and Half Life 2. I’m just about to start working through them again and I wanted to know what games everyone keeps around for extra playthroughs. Any game not on a current gen system should count.June 5, 2015 at 5:18 pm #47580wolfboy1988Participant
I always come back to The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. I try to do a playthrough of both at least once a year.

I can’t stay away from Binding of Isaac in one form or another and I have to play Homeworld every few years just to confirm that it is a good as I remember it.

I’m with you @tehmsu on Ghostbusters The Video Game, it got a lot of criticism but in a lot of ways it was still the Ghostbusters game I’d been wanting since I was old enough to want video games.
As for my games, I seem to play at least partway through Xenogears once a year or so, same for Final Fantasy 3 and 9. Also, sometimes I get an itch that only Sid Meier’s Pirates! can scratch, even now 10 years after it was released.June 12, 2015 at 1:17 am #47705MParticipant
I’d have to say Daggerfall. Being the first Elder Scrolls game I played as well as the first sandbox game, it blew my mind.
I still prefer the randomly generated world twice the size of Great Britain with hand made custom things thrown in at random to the new Elder Scrolls’ meticulously detailed world the size of a medium apartment building. Daggerfall didn’t have “that one guy who lets you advance the questline for the yarnspinners guild”, the fact you could start your career anywhere with guild presence (hundreds of locations that even occasionally looked and felt different) felt more realistic than a guy who halts the world’s story progression if he takes an arrow to the knee too soon.June 25, 2015 at 7:11 am #48074Shaded SpriterParticipant
There is really two series which I have come back to over and over again – Thief and Myst.
With myst I always forget most of the puzzle solutions too so it is good to replay it and figure it out again.
Has anyone actually made a REAL LIFE pilgrimage for a game – I am going to do a one when I can afford it – the mysterium convention

I keep coming back to Civilisation 5 and occasionally The Curse of Monkey Island. I still love the story and cartoon style of that game.

So I’m back, long story short, my account “disappeared”. No worries though, cause the long version explains why it doesn’t affect anyone else. Now to the topic at hand…
N64: super smash brothers
PSX: dragon warrior 7 and FF7 (I wish I still had a copy of ff7 that is)
PC: heroes of might and magic 3, and any blizzard game before WC3
Genesis: vector man, earth worm Jim
There are more games in my childhood I would still play, if we were the family to own more games than we rented.
