You know what game I keep thinking about playing again recently? TERA. I cannot tell you why, aside from the fact that it’s stuck in my memory since I mentioned it in a column a few days hence. There are lots of things I didn’t like about the game, but there’s something about the game’s sense of style that stays with me. It sticks in my mind for reasons I can’t adequately explain, despite the things I don’t like about it.
But I’m fairly sure we all have games like that, games that on a whole we don’t care much about that nevertheless stick in our memory. So what about you? What games hang in your memory unexpectedly, even if you don’t think the game as a whole is spectacular? Do you keep going back to them, or do you just sort of move on?
