Quote from Stairc »To put it more simply, it's like saying, "I can prove Jesus is real and loves you. See? Here's my Hispanic friend Jesus. He's had a crush on you for a long time. Tell em' Jesus."
Quote from Feathas »Demon's Souls for me as well. The game is a perfect examplar of how deliberate design may elevate an artwork beyond the level where lack of polish can harm it. Beyond the numerous means to horribly cheese almost every boss, the large number of overtuned weapons/mechanics and similar oversights is a game with unparalleled atmosphere and level design. I love figuring out obscure mechanics, mastering punishing games, ARPGs with iframe mechanics, slow and/or subtle stories, tone-centric art, and innovative mechanics... so it's practically made for me.
Not sure how many hours I've spent on Demon's Souls, but I'm positive it's 4 figures and that it would be much more if the community had not dried up.
I have still yet to play Bloodborne (soon), but Dark Souls' inferior level design and combat mechanics did not quite make up for its increased content and polish in other areas. I think the general distaste towards DaS2 is overblown or sometimes flat out wrong, but did not appreciate it as much either.

Quote from "Mysticake" »(about the English language) It's kinda like a raft that was cobbled together from parts of three different boats and since then has been kept barely afloat with crude repairs every time a leak appeared.
Quote from Poring
...All the better if we can convince Batman to lend us his computer by showing him how ungodly members of the forums think he is.
Batman: "You honestly think I can beat 10 trillion lions?"
MTGS: "Because you're Batman!"

We're showing our age here mondu, but who cares? Civ 2 is definitely on the top of my list!
Also among that list is StarCraft/Broodwar and the Quake series; I have fond memories of playing Quake III with my college roomies whenever we could get a game in.
I wouldn't call it a favorite, but I did lose a lot of hours with Roller Coaster Tycoon (and its ilk).
Oh. I can't forget Tie-Fighter and X-Wing Alliance. Excellent aerial games! But in space! and Star Wars! And you could customize your own battle scenarios (at least, with Alliance)! Friggin' great stuff!
