Let me give you an example: I can't think of many right now, but earlier this year, Uncharted 4 became probably my favourite linear action adventure (third-person) game ever. It's gorgeous, riveting, jaw-dropping and intense... Better than every Tomb Raider (I've played II and 2013), Gears, Bayonetta (not by a lot)... It joins the likes of Halo 3, BioShock, Half-Life, Skyrim, Burnout 3 (for variety), Crash 3, etc. as one of my favourite games ever. So what's the last game that broke into your favourites ever? Why the hell did this get downvoted? I'm just asking a question.
Donkey Kong Country 2. Just beat it the other day with a friend. We had a ton of hilarious, booze fueled nights with it.
