These icons are just a loose guideline, you can always ask me about everything, I promise I won't bite. Please accept though that NO means NO. If I decline I mean it, so please don't keep bothering me with it. A note on trades/collabs: Friends Only means FRIENDS ONLY. No, if you have talked to me once you are NOT my friend and no, having added me to your watch list or given me a llama does NOT make you my friend either.

This morning I started a new save data in Darksiders II on the PC and while playing through the first level one of the many reasons why I love this game so incredibly much seemed particularly obvious. Now I'll get into that right away but since I don't want to just ramble your ears full, I actually want YOU to ramble MINE full this time too. That means I want you to tell me all about YOUR N°1 video game, the one you love above all else. Don't go 'I can't decide between these one-hundred games' but really tell me about the ONE game that has a very special place in your heart. I want to know everything about how you got to know it, why exactly you love it so much, what makes you elevate it to first place, why you would recommend it, what kind of goodies relating to it you own etc etc.
Surprise, surprise, of course it's Darksiders II for me.
I could go on forever about how the music gives me goosebumps every time, how the voice actors (among others big names like Keith Szarabajka, Simon Templeman, James Cosmo, Michael Wincott) create some of the most badass dubbing ever, how I sometimes just stare at the environments in awe for seemingly hours, how I think Death is one of the hottest coolest protagonists ever created, how the story is a very intriguing and original take on an existing myth, how every realm is wonderfully different from the others, how the game was inspired by the Zelda series which I love incredibly much, yet seems to still improve upon it in so many ways and so on and so on.
But what really hit me this morning, what really makes me elevate it above all other games I have played and loved ever since I first picked up a Gameboy at age 4, is the fact that I could play it every single day and never get bored of it. I have known the game for about 1,5 years now, have finished it on the WiiU once on Normal, once on Apocalyptic and have once managed to get as far as the City of the Dead in Nightmare mode. I have restarted said mode instantly afterwards, have started another game on the PC on Normal and this morning on Apocalyptic and I sill don't have enough. You know the feeling when you love a game but there are always some areas that annoy you, that you wish you could skip after having played them so often already? For instance, take the first Darksiders. I love that game so incredibly much too but I frickin' hate the darn Black Throne. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy being there because I get to fight awesome battles and talk to Azrael (hehe) but its length and some of its puzzles are just blargh. Or to name another game, the Snowhead Temple in Majora's Mask. Frickin' annoying. Yet I still love the game as a whole. Now Darksiders II? Not a one passage that creates that feeling. Not a single one. There's only sections I love, and sections I love more. Even if I've completed a specific dungeon the previous day, I would still enjoy playing it again the very next day. For a long time my favourite game used to be Ocarina of Time; eventually it got pushed down by Morrowind. They are still on 4th and 2nd Place respectively, and as much as I love them I wouldn't be able to do the same thing as with Darksiders II.
I'm absolutely crazy about that game, about its characters, its universe, its gameplay, its music,... THQ might have gone bankrupt, leaving me and every other DS fan on the edges of our seats because the story is far from being completed, but I have faith that Nordic Games will eventually continue what Vigil have been forced to abandon.
Now it's your turn! Tell me about your most favourite video game!
