You can erase your memories with one game and experience it all again. What game do you choose?

I plan to check out Subnautica at some point this year. I've heard a few people say they'd also like to experience it for the first time again.

Psychonauts. The process of discovering both amazing level design and humor was a drip-feed of delight, and experiencing it for the first time was wonderful.

Cautiously eager for Psychonauts 2.

Something long, boring and grindy but I nevertheless enjoyed. Final Fantasy X maybe. I enjoyed it a lot but man I don't want to grind through it again. So this.

Most games I love I'd happily play again even knowing what will happen.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic

What a great game this was, and of course... #PlotTwist

Mass Effect (Core Series) - truly a great trilogy.
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion - first delve into the series, and it was brilliant.

I believe this would be my choice as well. However, given that it's unlikely I'd play a 15-year old game right now, if we're talking about just erasing my memory and not actually going back in time to play it then-and-there, my choice would probably be BATTLETECH, to erase my negative first experience with it and play it now that it's patched up a bit and hopefully balanced better.

I'm happy I backed it on FIG several years back. No clue when the sequel is due though, even though I backed it.

We had this once before and my answer is the same: Fallout New Vegas, the original BioShock and Borderlands 2. New Vegas's lived in feel and incredible selection of licensed music on the Pip-Boy radio stations made me lose myself in that world completely with an hour and I didn't surface for air for another 150. BioShock's Rapture also felt lived in, but also felt like its own living, breathing entity and I'll never forget the constant awe I found myself in with every turn of a corner and story discovery. Borderlands 2 will always amaze me because I don't think I've ever seen the sort of vast improvement that occurred between the first and second entries in any other series. I found myself perpetually blown away but just how much they'd improved everything, especially the story, and I don't think I'll have another experience close to getting to know the demented, delusional Handsome Jack, the game's main antagonist.

Seems like a risky proposition. What if the game I replayed didn't give the current me the same experience that it did in the past?

I think if this were some kind of genie wish, that would be the least of the unforeseen consequences of this kind of wish.

Aside from a puzzle game in which I'd want to blank out to be able to redo the puzzles, I can't think of why I'd want to do that. And I can't think of any puzzle games I've played that I'd want to do that with.

You also forget all the conversations you had about that game with your friends, and thereby lose all sense of connection with said friends, slowly becoming more alienated until you retreat into your house full time, only posting on the Internet occasionally to make bad puns or write lengthy diatribes that are half joke and half mad fugue state.

It won't matter, because you won't have any basis of reference to compare it to.

On the one hand, Final Fantasy VI was the first game that made me realize I could love video games, and it spawned a lifelong obsession. Maybe some other game would have done that sooner or later, but it was Final Fantasy VI (III back then) that actually did it and I still love the game.

On the other hand, EarthBound is still the most charming game I've ever played. The amount of surprises in the game and clever dialogue and artistic choices are near constant, but after all these years and replays the sense of discovery is gone.

There's also Panzer Dragoon Saga, which blew me away at a time when my expectations were already sky high. It's maybe the last game to have really done so.

I can't choose.

It's now a rule of mine that I will wait at least a decade or more before replaying a favorite game, to ensure my memory is as faded as possible. Luckily there's plenty of things to play in the mean time (and consequently games to add to the waiting list).
