    List yours. These only include games where there is no option for a second player, one-player only.

    First thing I thought of was Bioshock. Talk about enveloping.

    5. Bioshock
    4. Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door
    3. Final Fantasy VI
    2. Chrono Trigger
    1. Zelda: Ocarina of Time


    Honorable Mentions - Orange Box (sans TF2), Mario 64, Super Metroid, Blast Corps, Zelda: Link's Awakening, Beyond Good and Evil, Eternal Darkness, Castlevania II: Simon's Quest

    I wish I could try the ICO games. My PS3 isn't BC. But I'll get the new one.

    edit: "After hearing about the first two God of War games being ported to the PlayStation 3, Ueda mentioned in a recent interview of an interest to do the same with both Ico and Shadow of the Colossus."

    NICE

    Fallout 3 should be on your list at #2 and bump Paper Mario off

    I don't like Fallout 3. Not a fan of FPSRPG. I loved Paper Mario.

    These are mine just based on my experiences.


    Zelda 1 - Shit blew me away after playing Mario and Baseball and other NES launch games.

    MGS 1 - Psycho Mantis fight. Sniper Wolf post kill cs.

    Shadow of the Colossus - Epic.

    GTA 3 - Other games were better but I had goosebumps the first few times I played that game.

    Bioshock - first fps that really grabbed me.

    The beginning will only take about an hour or so to do your origins story and begin the main story line.
