Skool Daze/Back 2 Skool - speccy

Shenmue
Metal Gear 2 - the only one I've played more than once - I wanted every dog tag. Not to mention the cut-scenes. :roll:

Metal Gear Solid for me. Spent many hours on the whole MGS universe. Would recommend MGS 3 subsistence as it has the original 2 Metal Gears on it.

Also Resident Evil, have spent way too much time playing it.
