Check out my first published board game: In the Name of Odin!

And it was spurred by this image:



For me, it's any rogue-like I have ever played. The list includes, but is not limited to: Angband, Ancient Domains of Mystery, NetHack, Zangband or any other games of that flavor.

I might as well lump in all the old adventure games I've played, from The Legend of Kyrandia, Book One, to Riven: The Sequel to Myst, to Starship Titanic.

And how could I forget the RPGs? Treasures of the Savage Frontier, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind... So yeah... I replay games as often as I reread books.

So, what games do you get the urge to play as soon as someone mentions them?

Etrian Odyssey. Any of them. Soon as somebody talks about them I get the urge to dig one out and tweak my party or level up some more or just explore. Super Mario 64 and the old Donkey Kong Country games are also on the list.

God bless,
Kezle

Almost any game I own, mostly due to the fact that we hardly ever finish a game so it always reminds me of that fact. We've gotten better in the past few years of only playing one game at a time, but then we're buying a lot fewer games than we used to.

I do always want to replay Lunar: The Silver Star Story Complete, just because I have such fond memories of it.

Ach...Skyrim since it has been mentioned. Although I played a level 100 Jack of All Trades, got up to a level 30 thief, and experimented with a level 40 female mage. Maybe cap out at level 20 Khajit next? Hmmmm....

Me and a friend went to a concert today - video game music arranged for a small orchestral ensemble. They played three tracks from Heroes of Might and Magic III: The Restoration of Erathia... so of course we're playing a short scenario now before going to sleep

I feel a similar urge to replay a game once I talked about it or heard about it with:

Unreal Tournament
Diablo
Planescape: Torment
The Movies

and, yes, Deus Ex

I keep checking this thread to see if some additional game someone else mentions also triggers this response. laugh
