Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. Big fan of how the story was told through much of the game with the time loop setup. Each interaction with NPCs felt novel and interesting in a way I'd never seen before, particularly as their stories developed. The gameplay was among the best in Zelda in general (until the most recent games) as it utilized a wide assortment of masks that could sometimes make for big differences in playstyle. I also just generally loved the gravity the villain displayed. We've gotten so used to Ganon over these games, but Majora could be legitimately scary at times, almost like a force of nature. And some of the scenes with the Happy Mask Salesman lives rent free in my brain.

It's a tossup between TF2 and minecraft. The reason is that both games are really good to "hang out" in. Your Minecraft world is inherently cool and it's nice to just sit and take in the scenery while the characters in TF2 make it a really fun environment.

I'm surprised by how high-quality Minecraft feels with how simple the mechanics are compared to other games. Half of it was coded by one person and it's still the highest selling game of all time.

I know you asked for one, but I dont have just one.

My favorite offline video games are:

1. Vampire - The Masquerade Bloodlines

I mentioned this one before, but I do hold view that it is one of the most perfect games ever made, as you get many guns to use, many types of weapons, you can even complete the game with fists alone. Then there are vampire powers which are just great to observe, and the game itself has what I consider to be a very interesting story.

2. Fable the lost chapters

Pretty much the best game in Fable series, and almost anyone who plays it thinks its good, despite being an old game.

3. Age of mythology

A strategy game with soldiers, beasts, dragons, creatures, titans.... not many strategy games can beat that.

4. Star Wars Jedi Academy

An old game with beautiful lightsaber combat.

5. Dishonored

I like the combat system in this game, and powers too are somewhat good

6. Star wars battlefront 2

I only played the old battlefront 2, but the new version which came out with improved graphics is probably good too.

7. Classical games such as Spiderman, Batman...

I really liked a lot of these games, even tho I kinda forgot how they are originally called.

As for online games, I would say:

1. Smite

The game which balances out tactics with action combat, plus many characters in the game with different powers. So I have spent 300 hours in this game, according to Steam. Its a free to play game, and you can even unlock any God you want for free, as you obtain favor by playing games and you can either get God by using 5500 favor, which is bad option, as you can instead rent a God for 3 days using 300 favor, which is much better as renting lets you play with any God you want very quickly. Just after you had your fun with one God and earned 300 or more favor, then rent another using 300 favor and play with him until you earn another 300 favor, which is just few games usually. Plus the game itself gives you free favor every day, and you get lots of favor by just leveling up your profile or completing tutorial. Its one of those online games which is truly free to play.

2. League of legends

Somewhat inferior to Smite in graphics, but similar in gameplay and I would say fun to play even tho I am not playing it right now, as I just have Smite installed.

3. Vampire - Bloodhunt

Its one of those battle royale games, but sadly I dont meet minimum requirements to play it on PC, however it seems very good.

4. Yugioh dueling nexus

I like to play yugioh sometimes, and dueling nexus is basically a site for quick online duels.

As for smartphone games,

1. Eternal Senia

A very simple game which is role playing game but also action as you have to react and press buttons quickly.

As for PS1, PS2, PS3...games

I would say games like God of War, Final Fantasy, as they seem great on emulators.

As for nintendo...

Games like Yugioh world championship 2011 are some I played. I never had nintendo, but I did use emulator to play games from nintendo.

When I was a kid I remember Pong, and those old games. Atari, Coleco Vision, then Nintendo. I got into Sega Saturn for a while. Lots of games, you either remember or not. I'm not much of a gamer, though I did become sort of addicted to the PS2. Only God of War and Grand Theft Auto. Vice City and San Andreas were like home away from home for me. I like the artwork and sort of quasi-adventure. I have a PS3 now. And still the same franchises. But they have become so real and complicated I don't play as much as I did with the PS2. So, yeah. I'm old. Not much of a gamer.

Two of my favorites were "Black Site  area 51" and "SSX Tricky"  I have long since quit playing video games.  Got into it hard and left just as quick.

Never been there and never done that.

And I don't suppose that I will ever bother.

I spend enough time at DebateArt.

I have several favorites, even multiple for each platform. I gotta say though, one of my favorite games, and the one I typically say is my favorite although there are several, is Bioshock Infinite.

Bioshock Infinite was written very well and is a great end to the Bioshock series. I loved all the time and universe jumps, and the ending was great, even tying into the first two games in the Burial at Sea DLC.

two of my favorite movies are Everything Everywhere All at Once and Inception, so you can see where my mind likes to go when it comes to storytelling.

Otherwise, I loved Detroit: Become Human, and other similar games. If you have a good story to tell and a beautiful way to let us play it, you got me hooked.

On the other hand, I'm not much of a fan of Bethesda games. The Elder Scrolls and Fallout series are great, especially Fallout. I love that game's universe, I watched the TV show (and loved it) and generally really like Fallout. However, the games seem counterintuitive, can be quite difficult, and takes a hella long time to finish. Maybe I'm just impatient with poor writing though.

It changes over times,
Currently I'm really enjoying Age of Empires 2 (Definitive Edition).
I'm pretty bad at it, but I'm still enjoying it.

I'm just not interested in getting too skilled at it, learning build order and ideal troop type numbers.
Same with Mortal Kombat, I never learned how to juggle.

But again, been fun.
Three games stand out recently,

One, 1 V 1 Arena,
Where I played Teutons and the enemy kept spamming huskarls and pikemen, teutonic knights, monks, and rams made short work of them.
If they'd changed their strategy earlier, I'd not have been surprised by them winning, their score was twice mine.

Two, 4 V 4 Arena,
When an enemy built a castle near my walls, but I managed to muster a number of rams and troops to bring it down,
Then they built a second castle, right next to my walls,
I just deleted 3 of my walls, and using my rams, brought it down quick, rebuilt my walls.

Three, 4 V 4 Black Forest,
I managed to build walls pretty far ahead, and an enemy took umbrage with that, tried to take it down, but I defended and sallied forth twice,
Interrupting their boar hunt, and later stealing a cow.

Ended up winning those three,
But my win ration is actually pretty bad, ah well, still fun.

Multiplayer games with steep level curves. Savage XR, Star Wars and those niche MMORPG gun-blazing 4v4 requiring long duels lasting over hours were all my favorite. I wasn't as good as the regulars, but I was often chosen to guard/delay an enemy objective while the more seasoned veterans devote themselves to winning outright. Nowadays, it's Grand Theft Auto with some mods. I do a little bit of roleplay online, but only with friends i met irl.
