Well TV shows aren't the only things that can pleasantly surprise you. WHAT VIDEO GAMES SURPRISED YOU WHEN YOU PLAYED IT?

I was never an RPG player as I couldn't get the systems, and then I played Chrono Cross for the PS1. Now I love RPGs as it worked me in nicely while giving an awesome story.

I didn't know much about strategy RPGs, then a friend at his video game store recommended me Disgaea. I've been thankful ever since and even watched the anime too thanks to playing it.

Other ones that on concept that pleasantly surprised me: Katamari Damacy (a game about rolling a ball, how could that be fun? I was so wrong...), Super Smash Bros. Melee (a non-traditional fighting game that wowed me), and Super Monkey Ball (yes again balls and me, and pleasant surprises again).

To tell the truth Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts 2. I was thinking Disney games... I donno but one day when I went out to purchase some new games I grabbed them both I figured I might as well get 2 if I'm getting 1 and I won't say I loved them but I did enjoy playing them. Altho 2 was way better then 1. Also HARVEST MOON games I don't mean the new ones but the one on playstation. I remember when I bought it I read the back and I was thought to myself farming!?!? Alas it was the best purchase of my life!

I never thought I would play Katamari, but then I ended up living with two housemates who were obsessed with it and played everyday so I gave it and try and ended up kinda liking it.

Some good games to suggest for this and yes like I put in the subtitle for the thread, I give credit for the Anime I thought I'd never watch thread for this thread.

Oh wow how can I forget Harvest Moon?! Yes it was farming but it was fun! Just like long ago when I first played Simcity and the Sims in particular, thinking how can a sim life be any fun and I was so wrong. Other odd/not general genre games I thought I'd not have much fun with until I tried were Jeopardy (N64-even though I did love the show and somehow I ended up playing an all-nighter with my bro!), Simpsons bowling (Arcade), Dr. Mario on my Wario Ware Gameboy cartridge (both pleasant surprises), Sonic Pinball (Genesis) and Crazy Taxi (arcade).
