Checking in on the unique atmosphere of your town never gets old, and always offers something relaxing to stumble into. You can always rearrange furniture, go fishing, or walk around and enjoy the music for a few minutes before bed. If you started the game when it came out over 15 years ago, the happy memories and old friendships will come right back when you read a funny letter or visit a loyal neighbor.

The art and gameplay are in a world of their own. The game aged well because it stood on its own as a unique style- now just as well as when it came out.

most of the infinity engine games, particularly the Baldur's Gate series, are pretty much perfect in what they attempt to be in their original forms. Like, you probably want some basic mods to support higher resolutions, and some of the EE changes are nice, but beyond that, I don't know what would need to be changed about the gameplay and presentation if you were going to do a reboot. Only real issue is some corny writing, though that's kinda par for the course with high fantasy D&D

There is so much wrong with your list I don't even know where to begin.

First off Skyrim isn't even old enough to have "aged," so it doesn't even belong on the list (not even counting the fact that the game is complete garbage unless you heavily mod it, so would it count even if it were old enough?).

Call of duty. Call of duty ruined first person shooters, most specifically beginning with modern warfare 1+2.

Skate 1 is the only game in the series that I played, but it was revolutionary in gameplay. As someone who used to be an avid skateboarder and Tony hawk video game fan, skatee was a welcome relief from the monotony of button-masher extreme sport games. Definitely deserves a spot on the list.

Ocarina of Time is a classic. It was such a well polished game with a decent variety of exploration, puzzle solving, and action. It's even popular for certain new games to be developed with an old school cartoony look, so even the dated graphics are still somewhat relavent.

The other games I never played.

I would throw half life 1 on the list. Well polished, innovative for its time, good music, action. Decent story.

StarCraft 1. This game deserves a spot near the top. It's held up strongly, especially with the competitive and modding world. Vanilla gameplay is solid 9/10 well polished, single player is decently engaging.

Earthworm Jim, classic platformer.

While I'm bringing up platformers, Jazz Jack rabbit 1+2.

There's also a decent amount of early 3d rpgs that I used to play mid-90's.

As far as console specifics go, San Andreas.

Gameplay wise MGS1 is one of the worst in the whole series. Even the MSX games and Metal Gear Solid 4 were better.

Thief: The Dark Project is about as primitive as early 3D can get but god damn does it still play like butter. There simply hasn't been a better stealth game since, not even MGS3, although that shit comes close. The gigantic maps still discombobulate the fuck out of me.

Doom isn't actually 3 dimensional. That's why vertical aiming isn't a thing.

It also came out 10 years after Elite. You can still be an OG and be raised on a 3D game.

Acshually, Doom is 3D. The reason there was no mouse look in the original release is that it was a foreign concept in the early 90s. Later games with the same basic engine limitations had it as an option. It wasn't until the late 90s that you could take it for granted in a PC FPS.

Achsxtually it's not quite 3D. The perspective for the Y axis didn't work. You can something similar to what you would see in Doom when you look up/down in Duke Nukem 3D, all the vertical lines remains at the same angle.

Oh and OG Doom did have mouselook, you just couldn't look up and down with it.
Nobody on a competitive level, even back then, used keyboard only.

That's called 2 point perspective and it isn't relevant. I have a basic definition of what is and is not a 3D game. Do you?

Doom isn't 3D. It's all visual trickery to do with how to draw visual data. If you ever play a hacked Doom clone with free look, you'll notice all kinds of visual disturbances when looking up and down because IT IS NOT 3D!
GLaDOS - Thu, 07 Dec 2017 18:06:31 EST ID:k/McjHt3 No.711445 Ignore Report Quick Reply
It is relevant, because if doom was really 3D you couldn't have represented the world with a 2-point perspective the same way it does.

The maps are pretty much 2D with illusory height differences, which is why you can't have rooms over other rooms and stuff like that. Although it may look 3D the engine doesn't really do any 3D stuff at all apart from the rendering. If the game had rendered items (keycards) on the 2D map screen the game could be played entirely from there.

There is a reason this type of shooters used to be called 2.5D.

I think there was a thing with north america where nothing ported/remade could be released here on psp unless it added significant changes from the original. That's why we never got Devil Summoner 1 or Suikoden 1+2. Having a few extra bosses in SMT-DS and a fuller resolution on Suikoden wasn't enough I suppose.

minus the competitive people the game is still fun as fuck. Though I like smash 1 best, and I really enjoyed it, brawl and smash 4. the 3ds version even had a smash bros equivalent of town mode from kirby air ride which was really surprising, not nearly as good but still interesting.
