2-System Shock 2

I've played many games over the years, but I think this was the first one I truly loved. I read a small magazine article on it, and that somehow compelled me to pick up the game when it lay before my eyes on a store shelf one day. I never regretted it-the atmosphere was tense and scary, the gameplay fun, and the story good, with a few twists. Of course, I was younger then, and therefore more easily spooked-especially when I turned off the lights. The fact that my gaming skills weren't as good then didn't help things, nor was the lack of ammo laying around or the high prices of ammo from a replicator. Maybe my description isn't doing it enough justice(besides, the best way to experience a game is to play it), and maybe other games like Deus Ex or Fallout should take this spot, but I believe SS2 is the one title that really made me embrace video games.

(P.S.-I hope this topic isn't too old to bump.)

This is such an amazing game. Atmosphere, story, it's all there.  Thank you for reminding me, I shalll dig it out of my cupboard immediately.
You're welcome.

(Now if I could just go back up to Virginia and find out if my SS2 copy, box, manual, disc, and all is still laying around there somewhere...I miss that game badly.)
