Raffle 6: Gaming Gold


#1

Raffle Waffle 6 :pancakes:

We can’t help ourselves, we just love some games more than others. We may even acknowledge it’s not the best game for numerous reasons, but there’s still something uniquely special about it.

Some games hold a place in my heart because of a relationship I have with one characters, or a memorable experience I shared with my friends, or an unforgettable soundtrack. To me, these are the “best” games if only because my connection to them is the most meaningful.

I’m interested to hear about your game bonding experiences. Which games have a place in your heart and what does this mean to you? How can we make these kinds of connections with the real world?


Code of honour

Edit/ A game with an emotional connection? The walking dead series, so far first and only game I cried while playing, when Lee died… so sad. Too bad Telltale went belly up.

:sob: :skull:


#11

@rporter711 Have you ever played The Last of Us? I don’t want to spoil it too much, but the prologue that introduces Joel… is heart-breakin’. Definitely a scene on par with the Clementine/Lee situation.

:anguished: :cry: :sob:


#12

I know of the game but never played it, Ill keep it in mind if I ever feel like feeling sad but I dont know, I tend to play games to have fun not to feel sad. But yeah, heard about it and how good it is, also the second one is coming out if im not mistaken.


#13

@ohko

I demand to be disqualified at once!


#14

Who ever said you were qualified? :rofl:

Don’t worry, I recognised the example entry. I still like that you come up with a new way to let me know you’re here each time :blush:


#15

ok, cool, I thought u liking a post still determined whether one was qualified or not, lol


#16

@ohko, thank you again for doing this! Thanks to @RaccoonV, @persistnt, @elrodiel as well for donating games. :smiley:

A game that so strongly influenced my life, and thus my attachment, is Enter the Gungeon. It was what brought me to Chrono.gg and the community here. :smiley: For better or worse, my life has been changed dramatically since then, because of it.

:clap: Good luck everyone!

Actually, any chance you could disclose whether or not the MEGA prize is two keys or just one? I really only want the DLC key. I shouldn’t enter at all into that if it’s just one key. If it’s two keys, I will enter and then the base game I can give to someone else should I win… :clap::beers:


#17

I’ll participate this time.

Thanks for doing the giveaways.
Hmm emotional connection… Does rage with Rocket League when my teammate own goals on me count? Hmmm… I am not sure about a genuine emotional experience I have had with a game, most times I play games to escape and am more about mechanics than story… I guess I really enjoyed the end of Portal 2, I thought “wouldn’t it be funny if I could shoot a portal at…” and did it for fun and was genuinely surprised and happy that that was what you had to do. I think that is why the portal series is one of my favourites, strong mechanically driven games with a decent narrative that is left to be as intrusive as you want it to be, you can go search out lore if you want, but if you just want to play it you can do that too.

J. :tickets::tickets::tickets::tickets::tickets::tickets::tickets:

A game I have a huge emotional connection to, aside from Curse of Monkey Island – which I’ve talked about at enough – is What Remains of Edith Finch.

It’s my most popular review ever, where I intertwine some of the game with my own personal history. Here’s how it starts:

When I was 7, I found out that two brothers killed each other inside my house for the money my father paid for it. It turns out that all those years before my father renovated the house, two families lived crammed in it, in the same space that now snugly holds three people, one dog and one turtle – and an unholy amount of books, but that’s a story for another time.

The feelings it brought up in me were a mix of nostalgia, comfort and a little bit of fear.


Thanks @ohko and all the donors, once again!


#19

Back in the days before Steam, my best friend and I got Nox (a Diablo-style hack and slash). It was a single-player game, so we took turns playing. This be strange now but back then PC multiplayer was rare since we were all on dialup modems. I think multiplayer may have been added in via patch later, but it didn’t matter since we enjoyed sharing the controls. We never minded when we weren’t the one playing, and took on the “advisor” role. So I think of those times with fond recollection whenever I play Nox (which is still a very good game IMHO).

And I guess I’ll be the first to turn it to eleven (/fifteen)

It’s three keys, actually: 1 for the base game, 1 for deluxe upgrade, and 1 for the DLC
