Simple question, really; what was the last game that truly impressed you?

I remember when I was younger I used to always get excited by games; I spent a couple of months absolutely obsessed with Super Mario Sunshine and playing Super Smash Bros Melee absolutely blew my mind.

Maybe it's just that I'm getting older (or maybe I've just seen it all before a.k.a. wasn't at all hyped about Skyrim), but I'm starting to come across these "wow" games less. Probably the last game that really impressed me was Infamous, mostly because I really hadn't played any game like it before and the game was crafted so well (almost TOO well).

I think it must be South park the stick of truth. Since it looks just like the TV show and is the best game so far this year. I never expected that it was going to be so pretty and awesome

That's the reality we face as older teenagers/20+. We've seen most everything repeated which is pretty sad.
I don't own consoles anymore, but when I did, Kingdom Hearts and the Final Fantasy series are the leaders imo. Now I see tons of online games popping up, especially in the horror genre. To be honest I haven't been wowed by an online game yet, except when WOW came out decades ago XD

For me it was Stacking. It was the first time I ever played a pure puzzle-adventure title that I didn't, at best, tolerate. With Stacking, I loved the story, the humor, the gameplay that came with a hint system that is set up so that I could solve each puzzle with varying degrees of assistance, and, most importantly, the setting. What a magnificent-looking world these Matryoshka dolls live in. I hate dolls. The sight of most of them make me uneasy, and, yet, this whole game revolves around them. Before Stacking, which I first played and finished a few months ago, the last game to amaze me like that was Super Mario Galaxy. Granted, Nintendo always does a wonderful job with the franchise's platformer titles, but that one actually felt like a brand new Mario game.

Lol sometime i feel like i am supposed to be this but i am still wowed by every damn new FF series out there.
Last recent game that wowed me is Freedom Wars, downloaded the chinese ver ( can read chinese ) and played it. Was being wowed for the first few abductors fight even through the game play and other aspect are pretty terrible. Right now i am just waiting for God Eater 2 to be localized ( they probably will only localized burst T_T )

GTA5 was a very impressive game in pretty much every aspect.
Replaying the Metal Gear Solid series made me realize how much I love it.

The most recent game that made me go "wow" was Civilization V which I only recently purchased.
I played it for 10 hours the day I bought it and went on to preorder Civilization Beyond Earth after that.
Truly impressive game.

Kingdoms of Amalur:Reckoning this has to be one of the most underrated RPG games out there. The story was amazing and bountiful you were able to change your character faith constantly. The npc where fun to interact with, graphics were decent. Where the game truly excel was in combat you were given an option of three class. Finest, Sorcery and Might each having their own epic abilities. You could also combine two or all three class if you wanted to. To bad the company that made this game went belly up

Played the game before. Yea it is pretty underrrated but my gripe with this one is that it feel like a solo MMO

Some nice games here, actually. Not sure about GTA V but by the sounds of it, I've gotta play Stacking!

I think I'll get Freedom Wars, since it's pretty much the only game other than Tales of Hearts R coming to the PS Vita, and yeah, it looks incredibly innovative and fresh.

It would have to be Shadow of the Colossus for me. The game was just good all round, the visual side were the best the PS2 could offer as well as well as you defeated bosses Wander's attire would get more torn and dirtier reflecting his journey so far, the music really set the tone for the game in every sequence and the story while my 10 year old mind didn't get it at first but after looking it became a really good yet sad adventure and that plot twist.
