PostEpic Games before MH series in your life

Hello fellow hunters, we know that the marjority here loves the MH series, but before that, what games make you droll and be addicted??

So we can check out those games when not playing MH =P, but plz say just 3 games or series and try to explain why you like it, so we dont get really big and boring lists, and just games that you played before playing MH. Dont come with new ones like Skyrim or Mass Effect since we can see reviews of them everyday lately, so... here I go:

Shadow of the Colossus for PS2: well for me, one of the best games ever, music is fantastic, very good graphics, the gameplay is a little broke sometimes, but the battles... Oh man the battles are EPIC, the game is not that hard to play but the feeling of slaying a gigant colossus for the sake of a loved one, is something unique in this game. And the cherry on the top, is the history, they dont tell us much, but you can make your own conclusions about that... a really cool game and a must play.

Diablo Series for PC: well the very first game I really got addicted and played non stop for a long time, a good and old brainless point and click hack and slash, a good stress reliever set on a dark gothic theme, full of demons and creatures to slay. Nice skill customization (on the diablo 2), packed with a lot of itens, that you need to farm killing bosses, to boost your build make this a very cool game! the downside... it´s really repetitive on high levels.But I'm looking forward to Diablo 3 this year!

Harvest Moon Series for nintendo system and some on PSone: Well I dont know if the ps2 got a harvest moon, but this game is really cool and can make you play it for a very long time. A farm simulator that started on the SNES, where you get a really poor farm and have to work to improve it! Taking care of animals, and farming crops will yeld you money to improve your farm even more. You have to work on your character too, since he lvl up his skills with the tools!! And the game even have some social interation, since you can get married, and some side missions to complete to make the game even more addictive.

.Hack GU.
Was a game on the PS2, and it had one of the best storyline I have ever played at that time if not of all time. It's just... one of my favorite games of all time. Downside though, the whole series is 3 different games, but each was 60 hours worth so, it total it took 180 Hours of awesome story....


Tales of Vesperia
Was one of the recent games I played before MH. It's a Tales game from Namco, and I always love Namco's releases. Has a good storyline and fun gameplay. Humorous too. Not to mention it has one of my top favorite characters in gaming, Yuri Lowell AND Kratos Aurion.

However I recommend playing all "Tales" games if you're into JRPG.

Pokemon

Self Explanatory...


Here's a list of all the games I loved and played during my lifetime..... for kicks

Spoiler:
 

Yea. Okay.

Digimon World 3 for the PS1
Open world RPG with violence...good storyline, decent leveling system

Fable 1 for the Xbox
you kant beat the original...it wuz just too awesome...Fable 2 and 3 kudnt compare XD
Open world RPG with a tad flawed leveling system, decent storyline, and spells were abused above anything else...

Jade Empire for the Xbox
More open world RPG :D great storyline, you had the option to make decisions exactly like mass effect, decent leveling system and multiple ways to finish the game

I was really just into Twilight Princess and Smash Brothers before I got into Monster Hunter. Those 2 games got me interested, and then Monster hunter essentially got me hardcore.

No just very poor growing up. Honestly, I had no clue there were color TV's until I got into high school. My uncle owned old arcade machines and I thought they were new, when my friend showed me his super Nintendo and large color tv my mind was blown!

Nope, just start right into the game. The anime is actually the prequel, but it's better not knowing it until completing the game. You have to mess around and do sidequests to get the real feel of the story. Also you I recommend reading everything, because you can see how well the story was designed. xD

When I was younger I didn't have amply of money soninwould get the bargain games for about 3 dollars a piece. I remember playing The Legend of A'Lon Dar (that game was hard as FUDGE), Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Duel Masters, Yu-Gi-Oh games, I played Pokemon, I also played a lot of DBZ games like Budokai and Budokai Tenkaichi 2, I played some GTA and I absolutely loved Melee (Brawl is little too easy)

Metroid Prime and the sequel. Amazing games, and still some of my favorites.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was the first game I ever won, or seriously played, really.

I had a GameCube. Gamecubes didn't have online. So, I played single player games. I still don't really like multiplayer games, with the exeption of MH.

Finally, Nethack. Found this game shortly before MH, but it is the game that had me hooked until I got Tri. I still haven't won it...

Some Epic games that I loved before MH was: The Animal Crossing Series.
Although the series gave you a dumb task to pay off your debt of your house in your new town (in which the debt takes FOREVER to pay off.) You can still do other stuff in the game like...fishing, catching bugs, connecting to other towns, collecting rare or cool items for your house, and grow friendships with your town villagers. In other words, this game is long and sometimes difficult, but its highly addictive

Harvest Moon.
Its just very fun and the game was pretty much a majority of my lil' kid years.

Minecraft. Just, Minecraft.

Elder Scrolls Oblivion. I don't know how to explain it, but it's just very fun and has many other quests other than the main story one.
Those are all the games I can think of right now, I might add edit in case I remember /yes/
