I struggle with the part of this question that takes for granted that games can ever be as accessible or as straightforwardly meaningful as books or films but my working list is

i think “tell to play” is putting it too strong but if i had to put together like a haunted cd-rom for someone to find
symbol
chop suey
sky kid
ghosts of aliens
super mario land 2

OK I thought about it some more and bennett’s new game is probably one of the most recommendable things that would fit here

Star Fox
The Last of Us
Thief: Deadly Shadows
Persona 3
Super Hexagon

Frankly I don’t even know if this is the right list, any of them could be swapped for something else and the resulting list paints a completely different picture of me. Guess I don’t have an identity

i love Earthbound like a good son but I would’t ever make someone play an aged SNES JRPG for many hours just to get to the most meaningful parts. this has been somewhat true for a lot of games i’d show to someone i really love

so i think i’m gonna make this a “Games-To-Play-On-Dates Mixtape” so i could see who they really are, while showin’ my side too.

I’m gonna completely eschew the “make someone else play this” part and just list some games that made a huge impact on me growing up.

Earthbound
NiGHTS Into Dreams
Bubble Bobble
Sanitarium
Silent Hill 2

NiGHTS is a game that feels like you’re showing off who you are as you play it. I was in Columbus, Ohio for a librarian conference last year and they threw a big gala party thing at a local museum that had a huge videogame exhibit going. As a grad student, I hardly knew anyone at the conference, but I had to be there for work and I had to make an appearance at this event. I didn’t really want to be there and I wasn’t in a huge socializing mood, so I ended up hanging out in this awesome arcade the museum had set up, where you could play classics from every major console. They had a Saturn hooked up with NiGHTS going, and I ended up spending hours playing through it, with librarians occasionally walking by and watching briefly. That game is so gorgeous, and it feels so elegant to play, it’s almost like you’re performing acrobatics.
