What are your favourite video game franchises and why?

ChewyCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 42136698

Pokemon, because it has infinite replay value, especially if you include romhacks that do things like expand the amount of mons you can catch in in one region + the difficulty of NPCs/bosses (because tbf the original games are mostly pretty easy and can be completed with brute force and not much strategy, grinding is usually the worst part but they made grinding easier in later entries).

Halo because of the unique art/designs, the atmospheric kino soundtrack, the fun/satisfying mechanics and level design, the highly customizable multiplayer experience, and the story that has actual depth in how it approaches subjects such as religion, holy wars, the afterlife, genocide/extinction, enemies becoming allies etc.

Gears Of War for similar reasons as Halo--great art style/music/atmosphere, hands-down best third-person cover mechanics ever, and considerably skillful multiplayer that greatly rewards teamwork.

Call Of Duty because it is accessible, addicting and satisfying. Its the kind of game where no matter which one you are playing, you can just hop on, join pretty much whatever gametype you want, use whatever weapons/loadout you want and have fun. You don't have to be good at it to enjoy it, and that's the whole point. The progression and unlock systems are basically the best of any online shooter as well.

Legend of Zelda; it was the first fantasy game I ever played and it's length and sheer size (for back then) captured me. It was so grand compared to the other games that were out around that time and available to me. I was instantly hooked.

Sonic the Hedgehog. Practically grew up with him. While we did not live in poverty we wern't that well off so we couldn't afford fine things so Mum got us a Master System II given it was cheaper. We eventually got a Mega Drive and we've pretty much been a Sega household up until fifth gen when we could afford to have more than one console such as Sega Saturn, N64 and PlayStation.

Given I've always been a Sega boy, Sonic's almost like a brother to me, I mean I know he's fictional but it's because of him I had dreams of wanting to make my own video games someday.

Fallout.

My best friend introduced me to Fallout 2 just after Fallout 3 was announced. I really dug the post-apocalyptic atompunk vibe and all the references to old-timey horror films. My mom loves horror movies and I had had most all of them inflicted upon me from a young age. Also, coming as I do from a military family and being born at the ass-end of the cold war the whole cold war going hot thing also appealed to me.
I enjoy the crap out of many game franchises but none quite so religiously as Fallout. Even FO76 can't fully sour me to it.

Also, Boone is my spirit animal.

Resident Evil.

I have no idea why. I just have a thing where I have to play every RE game that comes out.

Funny thing is that I don't even like horror games, usually, but there's something about RE that has ingrained itself in me. Weirdly, I wouldn't put any RE games as my top 10 but for some reason I just have this instinctive need to play every RE game that comes out and I have no idea why.

On one of my play-throughs I crept up on the end-game legion camp, shot Legate Lanius in the face with an explosive .50 round which dismembered the two legionaries standing next to him, he proceeded to come charging down the hill at me, one-shotted Lily and took 90% of my health off before I put him down with the riot shotgun.

>>42136865

To be fair Lanius is an absoloute chad

Also you are aware you don't have to kill him? You can speak to him and end things peacefully.. Sure it requires 100 speech but it's super satisfying

You ever have this happen?

(Look carefully at the health numbers.)

I'm assuming I survived with like 0.4 HP or something and it rounded down.

Yeah I did that once too. One time I dropped a bunch of Fatmines, shot him with Ratslayer and ROFL'd after he charged right into them and sent pieces of himself raining down into Boomer territory.

>>42136871

Not that I recall specifically but probably.

I was level 6, as the screenshot shows, and fell in a hole with this, with nothing but a regular Sawed Off Shotgun and a few grenades.

Nice, reminds me of the time I tried to sneak past the quarry O' deathclaws. Even though I'd put all my points into sneak and was wearing recon armor one still managed to sniff me out.
Still better than those accursed Cazadors though. Have I mentioned my burning hatred for those recently?

Metal Gear Solid.
Aside from the extreme nostalgia value, I simply love stealth games and Snake is badass.
You can't beat the classic codec calls.

I have a story about that area of New Vegas but it is highly NSFW so I will spare everyone here the details.
