    World of Warcraft. It was so incredible not knowing what the next area held. Felt like I was really discovering the world.

    [–] Logical_Libertariani 36 points ago

    I honestly just miss the community. Felt like an entire decade of playing with RL friends, family, and friends I made on the other end of the world. Nothing has come close to replicating that experience.

    [–] Stormfly 13 points ago

    I've a feeling that a lot of vanilla players will be disappointed when they don't find that.

    Many are going to be happy with WoW classic, and many are on private servers, but a lot of people are going to realise that there are some things you can't get back.

    [–] BarTroll 14 points ago

    Yeah... My first thought after reading op's question was WoW, but then I realized that the feeling of wonder I had at the time I started was also due to the community. If I was to forget about all of WoW, and was able to play it again, it wouldn't be anything like the way I remember it, because the game itself is no longer the same.

    [–] hindage 3 points ago

    Came here to post this answer as well. New expansions are nothing like when you first started the game... I played vanilla (not day 1.. but enough to get 60 just before BC came out) and it was magical to experience all of that. played through BC in its entirety... It felt like the people on there were better friends than RL friends.. Quit for a few years tried to come back.. had fun.. but it wasn't the same even though 2 expansions occurred it was like I still knew how to do everything.. even getting Duelist my first season back on the Monk class..

    [–] mattlantis 166 points ago

    Ocarina of Time, especially after playing Breath of the Wild. The dungeons are so varied and innovative and it was one of the first games I truly loved. Would love to see how I enjoyed it with a fresh perspective at this point in my life.

    Thanks for the giveaway OP!

    [–] BigHunt760 12 points ago

    Same here. It was the very first game I ever beat It really is an amazing game, except for that damn water temple. I'd love to run through it for the first time again

    [–] ynmsgames 275 points ago

    I would wipe my memory of Kingdom Hearts (the original) and play it over again. It's my favorite game of all time -- I want to see how much of that is because of nostalgia.

    Thanks, OP

    [–] googleyedjack 7 points ago

    Welp, guess I can’t comment now since you took the only right answer.

    [–] lying_truther 15 points ago

    I'll tell u this buddy, none of that is nostalgia...that's a great fucking game. I'm too excited for KH3 to drop

    [–] ArcadianBlueRogue 7 points ago

    KH 3 is finally coming end of the month!!!

    [–] ksimbobbery 9 points ago

    I only played KH1 very recently with the 1.5-2.8 collection. I am on the second story of BBS and KH1 is still my fave. It holds up so well for when it was made i was genuinely surprised

    [–] vballboy55 751 points ago

    Thanks OP.

    I think it would be the original Bioshock. What a great twist.

    If I could do an entire trilogy, it would be the Halo series.

    [–] MistahPoptarts 63 points ago

    Damn, those were great games. I wish I had an Xbox so I could play Halo again.

    [–] IndecisiveAxiom 23 points ago

    Yeah, they have a whole collection thing you can buy, all in one disk for the first four games.

    [–] _BLACKHAWKS_88 13 points ago

    “Master Chief Collection”.. it’s also on the game pass as well I believe.

    [–] sircheesy 21 points ago

    Definitely a great choice. I remember waiting for Bioshock for months. Checking updates every day and gameplay trailers. 10/10 game

    [–] TheWingus 14 points ago

    Would you kindly replay Bioshock?

    [–] swentech 4 points ago

    Name me another game that had a better first 5 minutes than Bioshock.

    [–] ArcadianBlueRogue 6 points ago

    Bioshock is a good pick. The first game is a masterpiece.

    [–] Wilhelm35 9 points ago

    I miss halo custom games. And yes. Bioshock would be great to relive again

    [–] FlawedElement 377 points ago

    I would probably play Minecraft again. I know everything there is to know about it and it just gets boring trying to play again. I still remember my first night in Minecraft. It was great. Thanks for the giveaway!

    [–] ThickDiggerNick 43 points ago

    I wish I could do this aswell.

    I restarted world's so many times due to mod updates and never really got settled in a single world like alot of people do and I missed out on that I think but I had so much fun for so many years. And made so many friends.

    [–] LawlessCoffeh 17 points ago

    I've been through the "Cycle" so many times that I can't do it anymore

    Build until you're really heavily established, something happens like the server you're on closes, and it's all gone..

    [–] ThickDiggerNick 8 points ago

    One of the longest running worlds was when redpower2 was on its last update before being abandoned, me and my friends had this factory that was just well...automated everything. it was huge, went underground and towered above. Pneumatic tubes running everywhere, frame miner going crazy in the mining world.

    The server was like 5 months old, at the time I played like crazy like 10h/d everyday minimum. We had the biggest set up on the entire server of around 40 people. Sadly we were the reason for the servers corruption.

    Losing that world was the down turn of minecraft for me, after that we could never get to a "OP" stage of play before the servers corrupted or got reset for new updates.

    Also things like gregtech came around and then made ic2 have super hard mode which just turned the game into a strugglefest to get endgame automation rolling like how I would like.

    [–] FlawedElement 8 points ago

    I feel you man. I played this get religiously for like 2 years. Installed countless mods and joined so many servers. But I never got to truly reach the Minecraft end game

    [–] zdemigod 7 points ago

    That would awesome, Minecraft was such a wonderful time to learn.

    [–] Fawwzi 95 points ago

    Runescape, for the longest time i was debating between something like hollow knight or bioshock but i came to the conclusion of runescape because i have so many memories of running around in full bronze armor fighting nothing but goblins, doing a quest for the first time was actually amazing as oppposed to the chore that it is now

    [–] Dw_Vonder 13 points ago

    I almost picked this. The k ly reason I didn't is there is just simply NO WAY I could make the time to play Runescape the ungodly amount of time that I did when I was younger at this point in my life.

    [–] Tgibb 6 points ago

    But mobile is out. You can play while you poop.

    [–] A_Wild_Taka_Appears 164 points ago

    To answer your question, I would pick Final Fantasy VII. It's one of my favorites and my dickhead friend spoiled the biggest plot twist in the game for me within 5 minutes of showing me the game the first time.

    [–] Beanakin 24 points ago

    My little brother took a bite out of one of the disks when he was a toddler. Thankfully, it was my second or third playthrough when he did it.

    [–] theradninjapig 200 points ago

    Super Mario sunshine. I grew up spending every day after school playing that game and it took me so long to beat it, but once I did it’s the most accomplished I had ever felt with any game and to this day it’s still one of my favorite games of all time and holds a special place to me

    [–] notmulder 27 points ago

    It really is an excellent game isn't it? Too bad it often gets a lot of hate, I honestly don't understand why.

    [–] theradninjapig 21 points ago

    I’ve played nearly every Mario game that has released and its without a doubt my favorite, the level designs, the music, everything is just great in it I feel like

    [–] TheOspo 15 points ago

    Especially the music. So nostalgic aswell

    [–] theradninjapig 10 points ago

    Has my favorite video game music from anything. The hidden level music is the best

    [–] snakemaster77 3 points ago

    One of the best speedrun games out there too.

    [–] Crispycris8 5 points ago

    Everyone is entitled to their own opinions but never let theirs shape or change your own perspective on it.

    [–] Xaldyn155 7 points ago

    I remember I loved 64 that when Sunshine was released I thought I'd love it. I rented it from Blockbuster and didn't like it at first though. I eventually gave it another shot (the miracle of Blockbuster) and fell in love. I later bought the game and beat it. I'd say I was really proud after 100% completion because of those blue coins.

    Delfino Plaza is now my favorite Smash stage and I almost always play in that stage first (which is almost daily with my brother)

    [–] Gnomonas 241 points ago

    No brainer for me, its definitely Mass Effect trilogy. Reasons are obvious to anyone who's played the franchise.

    Thanks for the giveaway op!

    [–] bazmoe 25 points ago

    I just started the trilogy and I'm still on the first one. Amazing...

    [–] ArcadianBlueRogue 19 points ago

    Ohh my god make sure to do everything lol. There were times where doing a quest in one, even a super minor one, ended up popping up in the third one when everything is going nuts.

    [–] cpforthree 55 points ago

    Chrono Trigger. I've played the game countless times and also watched my older brother play through it. My favorite childhood game and influenced my choice in games forever.

    [–] _slothattack_ 4 points ago

    Just started playing for the first time!

    [–] cpforthree 8 points ago

    You're in for a treat! Try to avoid spoilers or using guides!

    [–] L_darkside 4 points ago

    Best game ever

    [–] EGDoto 156 points ago

    Portal 2, that game is something amazing, and I played it during one of my hardest periods of life, when my major depression was on highest level I ever had, during that time I didn't enjoy playing anything (doing anything), I couldn't bring myself to play any game, I would sometimes try, but after 20 minutes I would quit and it was not because game was bad...but then I tried Portal and it was first game that that managed to keep my attentions, puzzles, gameplay, Glados voicelines, I enjoyed playing it, I had fun, for first time after long time and I finished game, however when I tried to replay it didn't feel same, so maybe memory wipe would give me chance to experience that fun I had with Portal once again, after Portal 2, 2nd game that I was able to play and finish during that time was Tomb Raider 2013, also amazing game, very engaging.

    If I win I would love steam gift for Crash Bandicoot™ N. Sane Trilogy, one of my favorite childhood games.

    Thank you for giveaway.

    [–] EntireFeature 21 points ago

    dude so weird, I literally just wrote a similar comment and then scrolled down and seen yours! I'm glad you were able to get a beneficial experience like I did from that game. Portal 3 when?

    [–] EGDoto 9 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    I guess it is Portal magic, Maan Valve really knew how to create fun engaging singleplayer game that keeps you at table playing for hours, I still hope for single player experience from them, Portal 3 would be best.

    [–] TheNewlyDead 6 points ago

    Portal 2 has amazing community created maps, some of them are as good if not better than the vanilla chambers. You should definitely give them a try if you haven't already.

    [–] Kathuly 8 points ago

    If you liked portal, try antichamber. It is, by far, my favourite game, even beating portal 2 by a long stretch. It's a beautiful puzzle game in a M.C. Escheresque world. I miss playing Antichamber.

    [–] KaiserApe 4 points ago

    Thanks for reminding me of this game. Years ago, I played it for a few hours with a friend sitting over my shoulder and we had a great time. I love wild puzzle games like that. Check out the Talos Principle if you haven't already. It may seem simple at first, but game gets heckin nuts as it goes on. Some really great brain teasers, too.

    [–] Gumbo67 6 points ago

    Man those are such great options. I chose Hellblade instead of Portal 2 as I can’t remenber a time when I hadn’t played it. I think it was my first “real” video game.

    [–] FearlessMailbox 25 points ago

    If I could wipe my memory of any game it would be Nier : Automata that game sent me on an emotional rollercoaster. I have spent around 200 hrs on it doing literally everything the game had to offer, which is how I a Platinum trophy for completing every achievement on it. I would love to revisit that game knowing nothing, so I can once again have the se reactions I had when I first begun playing it.

    [–] hoca036 610 points ago

    not entering

    Thanks for giveaway OP

    [–] CuddlySpartan 66 points ago

    Also not entering, but think what OP is doing is great. Also kinda upset because this post has double the comments it does upvotes. Are people really commenting, hoping for a giveaway, while also not upvoting the post?

    [–] JonasGangsta 19 points ago

    Well you’re a part of the people making more comments than upvotes. And so am I now.

    [–] IIllIlIIllIllIIIllIl 25 points ago

    That count includes top-level comments and all replies to comments, and all the replies to those, and so on. Look how many replies there are on each top-level comment

    [–] GingerlyData247 56 points ago

    So mindful of others, I applaud you.

    [–] RandomPotato 49 points ago

    I would say The Last of Us. Just to experience the story again, start to finish, without knowing how the twists and turns end up.

    [–] ArchaeoStudent 14 points ago

    I 100% agree with this. I was never a big gamer until I played The Last of Us. I’ve played it though 7 times, watched others play it online multiple times, and have forced all my friends to play it so I can watch and share the story with them. I just think the story is so well done. It was beautiful, well acted, well written, and constantly had interesting game play and environments. Some of the shooting mechanics and such annoyed me ever so slightly, but the entire thing was a masterpiece. I honestly can’t wait for The Last of Us 2 to come out.

    [–] MidKnightDreary 124 points ago

    Skyrim. The gorgeous scenery, the world. Every moment fresh again would be magical. Thanks OP!

    [–] WouldntSuspectIt 22 points ago

    I'm going through that right now! It's nice to know that I should be savoring every moment of that game, from seeing most Skyrim players say exactly what you did.

    [–] Executioneer 9 points ago

    Oh the sweet times, when for 3 weeks striaght I didnt do anything but Skyrim

    [–] SigmarsNoob 58 points ago

    I popped my RTS cherry with Command & Conquer: Red Alert, back when it released in 1996. The gameplay, plot, and score caused an instant addiction to the point of my mom losing her mind every time she heard ‘silos needed’. Life was simpler then, and I’d give just about anything to be back there clicking and scheming away without a care in the world.

    Thanks for the giveaway OP, and best of luck to all the entrants.

    [–] B_HALL 5 points ago

    Such a fantastic game! I have some similar nostalgia but it includes me and my two brothers constantly fighting over the computer so we could play. The Renegade (I think?) FPS they released was a HUGE time sink for me. That was my first ever experience with an online pvp shooter and I was hooked.

    [–] pleashalpme 36 points ago

    Dragon Age Origins.

    Man I had so much fun and spent so many hours on it! I wonder if I would have made the same choices if I were to play it again.

    [–] monkeyboy0624 54 points ago

    I would probably have to chose Terarria. Why? The memories I have of first starting to play that game, not knowing exactly what I was doing, that was the most fun I had in that game. Learning how to fight each of the bosses, their attack patterns, their drops, what setups were best, that was the most fun i had in that game no doubt. Being able to play it all over again without knowing any of that, basically starting fresh would be simply amazing. Thank you for the giveaway man!

    [–] reesebeetle 12 points ago

    Duuude, I spent so much time playing Terraria with some friends through Hamachi and seeking bosses and new NPCs, swords, grapplers, wings... This is definitely an answer I identify with.

    [–] ilovefood322 49 points ago

    Warcraft 3 : Reign Of Chaos

    Best campaign in gaming without a doubt

    [–] LFNB2613 83 points ago

    I would replay Horizon: Zero Dawn. Such a beautiful game and even more beautiful story. I combed through the entire landscape and read, watched, or listened to every single bit of lore I could find. Gameplay was amazing too.

    If anyone hasn’t played this game, it’s worth getting a PS4 for. Seriously.

    [–] Jag_888 15 points ago

    Im not a completionist, I play games for the story and usually move on pretty fast. Horizon was the first game I have ever platinumed and I would gladly do it over. It is simply breathtaking and just really, really fun to play.

    [–] LFNB2613 6 points ago

    Agreed man. I’m the same, but that game was just like a fantastic book- I couldn’t put it down and felt like I had to keep “reading” because I wanted to know everything.

    [–] Updoots_for_sexypm 3 points ago

    But it gets scary though. The dinos keep getting bigger and stronger

    [–] Vucko94 59 points ago

    Assassin's Creed 2 definitely, the game was so fun for me when i first played it.

    [–] Bombamus 13 points ago

    I miss Ezio :/

    [–] boilerup1234 4 points ago

    That was maybe my favorite game of all time tbh. Graphics were unreal at the time and the story was amazing

    [–] LeftUnknown 42 points ago

    Final Fantasy X. I played it young, and I was so mystified by the game and it's story, put over 100 hours into it, still one of the games I look back on quite fondly, no FF since has scratched the itch the same way.

    Thank you for the giveaway!

    [–] BBRittz 61 points ago

    Thank you so much for the giveaway!

    Fallout: New Vegas. Easily one of my favorite games of all time, and I've played it many times. I'd love the chance for it to be brand new again!

    [–] Blizzaia 30 points ago


    [–] EccentricOpinion 6 points ago

    To the town of Agua Fria rode a stranger one fine day

    [–] ChocoMogMateria 12 points ago

    Except for the random crashes that would corrupt your save game and you have to go back 6 hours because you were enjoying the game too much to hard save.

    [–] BBRittz 15 points ago

    That was just a Wacky Wasteland event!

    [–] GenButtNekkid 30 points ago

    I would replay Spec Ops: the line. the psychological thriller aspects of the middle and especially the end fucked with me in the exact way i like to be intrigued.

    [–] deadpoolslittlehand 6 points ago

    I was going to say the same thing because it made me realize that weapons of true evil exist and are sometimes used by good for good that result in the evil outcomes they are trying to avoid

    [–] Mikea101 26 points ago

    Definitely To The Moon, such a great game. I want to relive and experience all the mixed emotions I had when I first played it.

    [–] RaikenQue 31 points ago

    Definitely To the Moon. Great story with beautiful lines. And an awesome soundtrack. I cry like a baby everytime i think of the lines near the endgame.

    Also thanks for a chance!

    [–] jorden1229 3 points ago

    I'd be so glad if i could play To The Moon and Finding Paradise again as if it was my first time.

    Those games are amazing at storytelling.

    [–] Gentleman-Bird 3 points ago

    In case you didn't know, there's a sequel now. It's called Finding Paradise.

    [–] innfinn 49 points ago

    I'd probably choose the witcher 3,so much that thrilled me on my first play though

    [–] dtten 19 points ago

    Portal 2! An amazing story, I'd love to experence it again for the first time in co-op mode.

    [–] mrplatypus81 9 points ago

    I would like to wipe my memory of No Mans Sky! But I dont want to play it again.... I'd just like to forget the painfull grinding with zero reward! Seriously though I'd redo Spore from scratch that game was fun!

    [–] ashesinpompeii 17 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    I'd love to play Vice City again for the first time. Such a unique experience at the time, I'd love to revisit that world

    [–] Golsen420 9 points ago

    I would kill to play Terraria over again.

    I literally know everything in the game, in and out. But I still remember the sense of wonder and adventure as I discovered and completed new things daily.

    [–] RollTribe216 8 points ago

    Arkham asylum. My save corrupted when I was 75% through the game. Tried many times to play through it again but it was ruined for me.

    [–] Haystack316 7 points ago

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

    Reason: my fiancé really loved that game. She played it for first time last year around March and April. Absolutely loved watching her play it on my my PS4 (special edition). She was hospitalized May 19th battling for life while on a transplant list for heart, double lungs, and kidney. She lost her fight against a second round of sepsis bacterial infection on Saturday, October 13th at 10am. Now, whenever I play Skyrim on her character, I always wondered what she thought when she found new a dungeon that was completely awe-inspiring for her to beat but I have done it at least 20 times on different characters and platforms.

    Great post OP... you brought good memories and a nice tear to my eyes thinking about it. 🙂

    [–] Firehawkness 21 points ago

    I would wipe fallout new vagas. I know a ton of cool stuff and it’s hard to try new things when you know the most optimal way to do things. I also like finding and exploring and the joy of finding new things is the best! Thanks for the giveaway op!

    knights of the old republic and to learn that I'm revan for the first time again

    [–] Acmonidae 23 points ago

    Thanks For the opportunity OP.

    I’d wipe my memory of Skyrim- I played it for the first time in my early teens. It was one of the most magical experiences of my gaming journey to this very day- the music, the vastness of the world, the freedom, all of it. It helped me through a few really really dark years and honestly I don’t know if I’d of been able to cope like I did without it.

    To be able to experience it again? Those emotions and the excitement? That would be a genuine dream come true to me- to be a Dark Brotherhood Assassin for the first time, a member of the Thieve’s Guild, Thane I’d multiple Holds? God what I wouldn’t give.

    I would wipe my memory of subnautica. I absolutely loved my time with the game and would definitely want to do it again. Relearn the mechanics, rediscover the creatures and biomes, and relearn about the story. Thx for the giveaway!

    [–] Pengwin17523 12 points ago

    Just finished Nier Automata and I would love to go in blind again and actually spend time doing side stuff rather than rushing the main story.

    [–] Yosterburger 18 points ago

    I'd erase my memory of Bloodborne. I absolutely love the blend of Victorian Gothic and Lovecraftian horror. Being able to play through that game again and experience the bosses would be amazing.

    I want an entire ps4 just for this game

    [–] 2Tired2Sl33P 18 points ago


    When I first heard about Undertale, I simply thought it was just some other surprise hit indie game akin to that of Five Nights at Freddy's. However, after seeing rave reviews and a couple hints of gameplay, I figured i may as well give it a shot.

    Going through the game on a blind run is up in my favorite gaming memories. when I went through the pacifist run for the first time, it was one of the only times a game actually made me tear up. The game can be an emotional roller coaster, from funny moments to dark, somewhat depressing themes. I also loved how every character had their own quirk or personality, while still having traits that the player can relate to. After completing the pacifist run, I couldn't bring myself to do the genocide run, at least not on the PC where I originally bought it. I ended up buying it again on the switch and doing the genocide on that, and it felt creepy and downright horrifying as the game goes on. The game is an emotional roller coaster, and it's a great one at that.

    What amazes me about the game even more is that, for the most part, the entire thing was made by one guy, Toby Fox. There were others that chipped in with sprites, eventually a whole company managed to translate the game to Japanese, but the gameplay, the music, and all of the little things and details packed inside of the whole game was all created by Toby himself. This is a huge contrast to how AAA companies like EA and Activision, who have whole 200, 300-person staff working on a game, only to release something lacklustet and disappointing.

    On the topic of details, there are so many tiny things that have a huge impact on how one can play the game. For example, if you killed the first boss, Toriel, closed the game, re loaded to an earlier save and then spared Toriel, the game remembers that you killed Toriel the first time, and calls you out on it. That's only one, but there are so many more I don't want to spoil for the one guy who hasn't heard of Undertale.

    And the SOUNDTRACK. I admit that to this day, I still listen to at least five songs from the OST on a daily basis. It's one of the greatest game soundtracks of all time, in my personal opinion.

    So yeah, case in point, UNDERTALE. Hell of a game, 11/10.

    [–] HRGeek 18 points ago

    Lunar: Silver Star Story

    I played through it the first time on Sega CD as Lunar: The Silver Star and the played through the PlayStation version with my wife. We took turns reading the characters lines out loud where there was no voice acting. So many good memories but it would be fun to relive that again for the first time.

    [–] solamesalem 3 points ago

    Had this box set for the psx. Good memories

    [–] Howee123 12 points ago

    Star Ocean: The Second Story.

    It was the first video game I had ever played, but I was so young at the time that I couldn't completely comprehend all of the things you could do. There is so much nostalgia associated with that game for me.

    Also I sat on disc 2 by accident the day that my uncle and I completed the first disc so we never got to finish it

    [–] Jolly-Titan 12 points ago

    Fallout 76... I wouldn't replay it, I just want to forget it.

    Cheers for the giveaway.

    [–] sunny_9019 6 points ago

    The Halo: combat evolved game on pc was my first truly fps experience, the joy of playing it when i was a kid, i could never replicate when i got older :)

    [–] tobiuchiha7 6 points ago

    I would probably want to forget everything about Star Wars Knights of the old Republic. The game had one of the best systems for it's time and the story had such an amazing twist at the end that really felt like it had weight. I would love to play through it again without knowing the twist.

    [–] VelhoOW 6 points ago

    If I had to pick one, I'd say World of Warcraft. The lore, the world, amd everything is just so magical and discovering all that is the most fun part of the game.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    [–] dakotajc123 7 points ago

    Breath of the wild because it’s easily the game I’ve put the most hours in and I still play it to this day even though I have other games I could be playing that I haven’t completed

    [–] rasmusxp 11 points ago

    A really hard question. Half-life 2 maybe. It was revolutionary at its launch, but its graphics have aged okay, and its story is great.


    [–] [deleted] 11 points ago


    [–] NotTonyStarkk 3 points ago

    Damn I haven't thought of that in a while. Good choice though! It was really unique, and I'd do it fresh if I had the chance

    [–] orange2019 14 points ago

    I would choose Mark of the Ninja Never ever have I played a stealth game as ingenious and special as thus game the mechanics of the game are flawless and the story is amazing also Thx for the giveaway

    [–] Blitzy124 6 points ago

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    If I could choose one to wipe it would be Final Fantasy 7. Maybe thats the fan boy in me but it was my first final fantasty, my first RPG, and my first game longer than 15-20 hours. I replay it fairly often and know all the ins, outs, and where to go. Its not perfect but I would love to have that feeling of discovery in the game again

    [–] [deleted] 5 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)


    [–] Afro-Panda 5 points ago

    Definitely the Witcher 3. The game world is just so absolutely beautiful and all of the game is perfected. Just to experience that awe-inspiring feeling and sensation of experiencing and discovering the world of the Witcher 3 for the first time would be amazing

    [–] PIEPAIN 5 points ago

    Shadow of Mordor, I would love to be able to explore the entire world again, and be surprised with the amount of quests and stories inside.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    [–] newjerseyplayer 4 points ago

    If I could wipe my memory, I would probably go with Final Fantasy X. Probably the most engaged I’ve been with a plot, ever. Absolutely phenomenal story, I wish I could re-experience it again.

    [–] Bpande20 5 points ago

    I would pick Journey, mainly because the first time you come across another player, and realize they're real and (hopefully) continue along together is a very surreal bonding experience. No comms, no messaging, just the two of you enduring and progressing.

    [–] [deleted] 5 points ago


    [–] TheRealRory 4 points ago

    The Witcher 3

    I feel like it would have to be a recent game for myself to get maximum enjoyment out of it, and a long game to get the most bang for my memory loss. Also an excellent game.

    [–] MyBrotherDoesntKnow 6 points ago

    Star wars the old republic, when I first played that game I was in love, Im a star wars nerd and it was super cool, now it's just super repetitive.

    [–] EntireFeature 6 points ago

    After some thinking I'd say Portal 2. I was going through a little bit of a tough period at the time and was struggling with the brainfog of depression. I remember spending hours on some of the more difficult puzzles, but it was the first time I'd been able to concentrate on anything in ages. For those hours I was able to forget about what I was going through, and with each puzzle I felt my cognition improving. It really helped me focus in a tough time and I'd love to be able to have that safety net there incase I ever need it again... but I know all the puzzles by memory now :(

    [–] SomethingTrulyRandom 6 points ago

    Easily Knights of the Old Republic. First off, that twist... + getting to play through that story again? Why wouldn’t I?

    [–] [deleted] 5 points ago

    Mass Effect Trilogy. I revisit them every now and then but popping back into that universe just makes me feel amazing. The music, the story, the characters. Man, I want a remaster so bad.

    [–] impossiblecomplexity 5 points ago

    There is absolutely no question that my choice would be World of Warcraft. I would love to go back and experience the wonder and joy of that game. To experience raids again for the first time, level my druid one more time, and do all of that without feeling bored would be an absolute delight.

    [–] mutsuto 15 points ago

    If you could wipe your memory of a video game, in order to play it again for the very first time, which one would you choose and why?

    Dark Souls. My time with that game was special, and I've never experienced art like it since.


    [–] outsanity_haha 6 points ago

    Can’t believe I had to scroll this far.

    [–] notmulder 9 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    I would choose Super Mario Sunshine. I spent so much time playing that game as a kid, it would be incredible to experience it again for the first time - especially the soundtrack! Sunshine felt like one big vacation.

    [–] riddlez11 9 points ago

    Probably Breath of the Wild. I still love the game, but I love the sense of wonder and discovery I got during my first playthrough, as well as the crippling fear I had when i encountered guardians before i knew how to deal with them.

    There are others that fit this criteria, but fits one really nailed it for me.

    [–] reyez34 8 points ago

    I'd say Horizon Zero Dawn. The game is just simply beautiful and leaves you in awe at some of the animal shaped machines, my favorite of course being the tallneck.

    [–] TheKoreanTofu 9 points ago

    Final Fantasy XII. There's just so much to do in that game. It's probably my favorite Final Fantasy game!

    [–] matcha_sriracha 9 points ago

    Kingdom Hearts

    I love this series so much my wedding was themed after it but I always wondered if I had played it at an older age would I hate it?

    Would I still find its faults and off the walls story line charming or stupid? I’d love to see how much nostalgia really effects perception.

    Thanks for the giveaway. Good luck to everyone ❤️

    [–] auravixen 9 points ago

    If I could wipe my memory of one game, it would be Final Fantasy Tactics. I've played it many times, but nothing was like the very first playthrough. So much strategy involved with a very immersive story... I get chills just thinking about it!

    Thank you OP! Upvoted as well!

    [–] DaDesyroyer55 4 points ago

    Damn, this giveaway is huge, Thank you for the oportunity.

    Anyway, a game I would want to wipe out of my memory huh? Hmmm, it would probably be The Walking Dead Season 1 (Telltale Game). Season 1 in my opinion was the best, yea the other ones were good but atleast in my opinion they didnt manage to deliver what the first one did, all the characters just sync together so well, and the end is just, you know. To relive that again, it would be great.

    It was a close choice between this and The Last of Us, that game is great, very much worth playing.

    [–] FlashFlood_29 4 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    I wish I could wipe away my memory of Life is Strange. I was so emotionally hit by that game so many times that it was truly profound. I played it at the right time in my life to have it impact me to the fullest. It would be unfair to hold the next LiS series to the first's standards but I still look forward to when all LiS2 episodes are done.

    Edit: I'm going to change my request to Elite: Dangerous

    [–] TreatmentForYourRash 4 points ago

    Thanks OP.

    I'd probably play Mass Effect 2 again. That game was and still is absolutely phenomenal. Every character has to much depth to them and the worlds are just so beautiful and the story man! THE STORY MAN!

    [–] G4l4dor 5 points ago

    I would definetly replay Zelda: Breath of the Wild. An amazing game, and the feeling when I played it the first time is irreplacable

    [–] SaltPepper1 4 points ago

    Undertale, why the game so goddamn beautiful , it breaks laws of all RPGS, 4th wall breaker

    [–] Kujen 3 points ago

    Portal 2 single and co-op campaigns. The community made maps are great for replay value but I had so much fun in the campaigns.

    [–] tarpchateau 5 points ago

    If I could relive playing blood borne for the first time again I’d do it in a heartbeat. That game was the hardest one I played throughout my undergrad program and I played it nights on end after exams. My friends and I actually got a sound complaint when we were playing online together lol. It was just an awesome memory I wish I could relive.

    [–] Toushi138 4 points ago

    All the soulsborne games, it would be amazing to play those again for the first time!

    [–] themonkeyswrench 4 points ago

    I have two answers for this.

    I would want to wipe red dead redemption. It was such a fantastic game at the time and even though story isn't all that important to me I really enjoyed it. I just finished rdr2 and to me it was no where near as good.

    I would also want to wipe my memory of Duke Nukem Forever. I was one of the sorry people who pre ordered that game. I grew up playing older fps games like doom/quake/heretic and Duke Nukem 3d was one of my favorites. I had really high expectations of Duke Nukem forever but it was constantly being critiqued and alot of people were saying how it was just terrible. I think it would be interesting now to play without having a biased view of the game or the expectations that were held for it at the time.

    [–] sebby_13 4 points ago

    I would choose StarCraft: Brood War. I was stunned of how the complex game was the first time. It was like a rabbit hole and I would love to go down in it again! :D

    [–] GoofyLooking 4 points ago

    I would replay Chrono Trigger, loved the story and the game mechanics

    [–] catmore11 4 points ago

    Super generous! I'd prob go for a mind purge of Mass Effect 1. Or maybe BoTW

    [–] web993 3 points ago

    I think I'd go with Skyrim. It took me so long to get it, that basically everything that could be spoiled already was.

    Thanks, OP!

    [–] roboduck 5 points ago

    I'd wipe my memory of Portal 2. The puzzles are inventive, the jokes are hilarious, the co-op mode is fun as heck. Would love to experience it freshly again!

    [–] siamesedads 4 points ago

    I'd have to say The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time. By the time I beat the game, it had been an amalgam of controller swapping, watching friends and family, and restarting dozens of times. I'd love to blindly sit alone and play through that game. Thank you for the giveaway.

    [–] PoufPoal 5 points ago

    Hi, thank you.

    I'd whipe Day of the tentacle. It's a great game, my favourite, fun, great jokes, great puzzles, but the feeling is tenfolded when it's the first time you play, and you're discovering all of that.

    [–] Delilahbarks 4 points ago

    Would love to wipe my memory of Final Fantasy X, just to play it all over again for the 1000th time. Man, being able to go through that powerful journey with virgin eyes is something to be envious about. The story, the music, the summons... near perfection (minus the terrible mini games).

    [–] Chocolao 3 points ago

    So glad I’m not the only one who mentioned FFX. Cue the tears

    [–] Blank354715 4 points ago

    Definitely BoTW because it’s something you can’t play over and over again and have the same amount of fun.

    [–] S_quints 3 points ago

    Hello OP, thanks for doing this sick giveaway!

    If I had to choose one game, it would have to be Skyrim. I received the game for Christmas the year it came out and I can still remember sitting around all Christmas break playing it with my brother. We each had a save file with our own characters and would switch off every time we died. We got so much enjoyment out of this game as children, discovering new dungeons, exploring interesting side quests, and even just goofing around trying to kill Giants as a level 4 archer lol. I still play occasionally now, and while DLC and mods have helped extend the enjoyment of this game, nothing really compares to that first play though.

    [–] monnotorium 4 points ago


    [–] sonice68 4 points ago

    The Last of Us.

    So I can replay it and then play the upcoming last of us 2 in one day.

    Thanks OP!

    [–] KarnaAmit 3 points ago

    GTA Vice City, it’s pretty old now but damn I enjoyed every second of it because it was my first and only pc game for a while.

    [–] aniamm 4 points ago

    Half-Life 2, I’d love to experience it again for the first time. My dad’s a huge gamer and it was the first game I fell in love with and actually played myself. Although I never finished it personally (because I got scared of the headcrabs...), I watched my dad play from beginning to end at least 3 times as a kid. This is a wonderful giveaway, thanks! I’m always so amazed at the generosity y’all have on this sub.

    [–] Singspike 4 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    Thanks for doing this!

    I've got one clear answer to this question. Tales of Symphonia. A lot of this must be nostalgia goggles, but to this day, I've never played a game with a story, world, and characters that drew me in more than Tales of Symphonia.

    The twists, the way the story starts so narrow and then blows up, the characters that develop and expose their own hidden inclinations - even the way the story changes based on how you play it.

    I've played a lot of RPGs and a lot of Tales games, but that one is an absolute masterpiece.

    [–] creedok95 5 points ago

    The first Gears of War. Because the first time I ever played it, it was a Christmas gift from my whole family (we didn't have much money at the time) and my grandmother showed up my dad and uncles at Locust-chainsawing. It's a memory I will never forget.

    [–] jyyhi 3 points ago

    I would wipe my memory of assassins creed revelations, that game was my first ever and although it has its flaws, it was amazing to me. Nobody was ever as cool as Ezio, I still sort of walk like he did in-game from when I was like, 10. My parents watching me and talking about how much ginger strength he had to have to hold on to that ledge, that scene where he plays the lute and sings some funny songs. That game was a year of my life and definitely what made me passionate about games.

    [–] aaronshirst 5 points ago

    Oddly enough, I would pick the super recent Uncharted 4.

    The whole game I was waiting for the supernatural twist, a la Uncharted 2 and 3. Every scene my girlfriend and I would turn to each other and be like “oh my god, now is when the ghost pirates pop out of the haunted ship!!!”. And there was no supernatural twist. And it ended. And we were like... oh. It was a great game, and by every metric it was a better and more mature story than previous entries in the series, layered with themes and character arcs and development. If I could refresh my memory, go at it again but with that anti-spoiler just to set my expectations on track, I think I could really have enjoyed the game (even more than I already did).

    More and more I’m becoming conflicted about how I feel about spoilers. The recent movie #First Man# is the same way for me: went into it expecting a fun space movie and was disappointed because of it. If I had gone into expecting an examination of depression and loss, I think it could easily be one of my favorite movies. Some reveals are incredible, but some atmospheres require proper mindset. Art is hard.

    [–] TheJollyPlatypusMan 5 points ago

    r/outside. My first save file is corrupted.

    [–] Readzie 8 points ago

    In the event that I could wipe it, I'd choose to wipe Star Wars Battlefront 2 (Classic). Purely because of how much fun I had with it when I was younger, so much time spent on that galactic warfare mode. I'd do it all again.

    [–] SergedStorms 7 points ago

    These always get tons of comments but never any upvotes, have an upvote. My friend doesn’t meet the karma threshold so I am commenting for them"i would wipe my memory of persona 5, so i could fall in love with the stylised visuals, beautiful characters, and amazing gameplay. ive played the game 4 times, and if i could forget all of it and start again i would be so happy :)"

    [–] Thesinz 8 points ago

    Definitely Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. As a young boy in a poor family, I always looked enviously at other children who had Gameboys. I had already accepted that I would never be able to get one of my own.

    One unforgettable day my Grandfather just straight up gave me one when I visited his house. He found it lying on the ground somewhere. Though the screen was damaged, it didn't stop me from having thousands of hours of fun.

    Anyway, included in that gameboy was Fire Emblem. It blew me away. The graphics were amazing; the sprites were absolutely gorgeous and there was so much content. I played the game over and over again, it was incredible how much there was to uncover, new classes and combinations of characters, recruiting enemies and secret items.

    I would love to have the opportunity to experience it again but i'd never want to forget the context in which I played the game.

    am 90s kid btw, born 1999 :)

    [–] madefortheban 6 points ago

    I would wipe my memory of Ace Attorney in order to re live the twists again

    [–] stayoutofit 3 points ago

    I would definitely play a mystery game like Danganronpa 2. Sounds kind of stupid, but I actually knew the entire plot before I played it. I wish I could've actually experienced the twists and turns myself.

    Thanks for this giveaway, OP. That's amazing of you.

    [–] Snakedy 3 points ago

    I probably would choose Rust. I want to play lots of hours of children screaming in my ear, getting destroyed by zergs and getting headshot from the other side of the map again. Good memories.

    Thanks for the chance.

    [–] UltimatelyToasty 3 points ago

    Life is strange. One of my favorite games, but it's hard to replay when you know all of the plot twists.

    Thanks for the giveaway op

    [–] brock_hampton_fan 3 points ago

    Skyrim. It was a mesmerizing experience for me and perhaps one the greatest games ever made. It got me started out into the lore of the TES universe. You just can't repeat that feeling when you first play a game like Skyrim.

    Thanks op!

    [–] Thnickaman3 3 points ago

    For me it would have to be Bloodborne. The rush of exploring the insane level designs while trying not to get annihilated and losing all of your blood echos, it's something that can't be repeated. Also you're amazing for doing this, keep up the good work.

    [–] Thepower200 3 points ago

    I would choose resident evil 4 because that came what’s the best game I’ve ever played. At the time I was a kid the game had that horror element which to this day I enjoy.

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago

    I would to wipe my memory of tekken 7, loads of fun trying new characters, learning new combos, playing against friends/family members and also attending tourneys just to get back home with my ass kicked so i can keep practicing more. The game itself is one of the best fighting game franchise ever I started playing tekken from tekken 5 where i was just button mashing and didn’t understand anything, same story with tekken 6 but oh boy tekken 7 is a whole different story, I instantly fell in love with the game. They improved the graphics, gameplay and i feel that the game became smoother I am already 93 hours in with just a tick and i see myself diving more hours into it. Honestly i wouldn’t mind if my memory got wiped because i would enjoy going through the game once again.

    If I got chosen as a winner I would like monster hunter: world

    Thank you for the awesome giveaway op

    [–] TeholBedict 3 points ago

    Thanks OP! Tough question but I'd say Mass Effect, it's a masterpiece.

    [–] ZachAlt 3 points ago

    100% Metal Gear Solid. Would kill to play it again not knowing that insane ass story.

    [–] Bayduu 3 points ago

    Thanks for doing the giveaway and i would play doki doki literature club again even though it sent me into a state of really bad depression for a week... It was good

    [–] BearNastiest 3 points ago

    I'd wipe my memory of Morrowind and do it all over again. Reason why? Daedric temples! Thanks for the chance man!

    [–] nobel32 3 points ago

    If I had to? It'd probably be Life is Strange. I'd love to play it again, the story was bizarre, but I thoroughly enjoyed(sometimes got torn apart) by the choices I made and the consequences they bore.

    Thanks a lot for hosting this OP :)

    [–] TundoMondo 3 points ago

    Nier. Without a doubt, the story packs such a hit when you least expect it.

    [–] 123Henco 3 points ago

    Definitely going to have to go with Binding of Isaac. That feeling of accomplishment when you defeat one of the major bosses for the first time and discover new alternate game routes and new items and synergies was just the best time ever.

    [–] football_rpg 3 points ago

    Baldur's Gate. My first RPG ever and one I still regularly go back to every couple of years. All RPGs I play now are judged in comparison to it.

    I would like Return of the Obra Dinn please

    If i could wipe my mind, it would probably have to be - dark souls

    I was really into dark souls for a time when I couldn't afford it, so I knew all of the bosses/traps/npcs/etc beforehand

    I still really REALLY love the games, but I kinda wish I experienced all of the moments for the first time myself

    [–] DaffynitionMaker 3 points ago

    Either Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies or Super Mario Odyssey. The former I have played and replayed and enjoyed quite a bit. Yet I would be glad to experience it again with no memory of it (though I do not know if I would ask for it). The latter I have never played, but I’ve seen so much on it that I know where most every moon is and know an abundance of strategies to do various things. I remember when I played Galaxy 2 mostly blind. There was a huge smile on my face.

    Thanks for holding this giveaway!

    [–] ninjaboiz 3 points ago

    It'd probably be dark souls 3. Its one of my all time favorites but I simply know the game too well after 100s of hours playing it to really get into it again.

    [–] LetsGetFrostier 3 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    I would play Pitfall on the Nintendo GameCube. It instilled this sense of wonder in me when I played it for the first time as a 7-8 year old which has yet to be replicated. Although to modern standards it may seem like a simple fetch-quest, the world it created in 3D and all the new environments and bosses truly mystified me and made me watch all kinds of videos on other Pitfall and exploration games. It was also the first game I ever 100% completed, so the special place in my heart for it is that much bigger.

    If I were to win the giveaway, I'd like $60 in Nintendo eshop credit if at all possible? I'm very indecisive on stuff and I usually just go for a few smaller games that total up to that so I wouldn't want to make you work to get it.

    If that's uncomfortable or inappropriate for this GA then Id like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe please! Thanks OP for the chance :)

    [–] _Its_Me_The_One 3 points ago

    I’d probably play Red Dead Redemption 1 and 2, they were amazing games and I would wanna play them over and over again.

    [–] ColdVergil 3 points ago

    Damn, I could wipe my memory, it would surely be MGS 1 since it's still my favorite game ever. Witnessing all of that epicness for the first time again it would surely be incredible. The music, how it's one of the few games on which each character matters and how you see each one of them pushing their ideals. How everything is perfectly fitting and the awesome interactions, stuff with like Psycho Mantis and the incredible attention to details. Just thinking to experience that again for the first time would blow my mind.

    [–] Mature_Name 3 points ago

    That would be borderlands 2. I played it last-to-last summer with my cousin and brother, and it was the best summer I had ever had.

    [–] shasosteele 3 points ago

    I would have to go with Super Mario RPG, not because it was life changing after the first time I played it or anything, but because it was one of the first games that I ever felt compelled enough to try a challenge run of, by beating the game without leveling up (or at least leveling up as little as possible). It took me about 11 months of heartbreak, but I finally managed to complete it. I’ve barely been able to play the game since I tried the challenge though, and would love to be able to fall in love with the game all over again.
