For me it's got to be a combination of Life is Strange and Doki Doki Literature Club. They really helped me come to terms with suicide and depression and I was lucky enough to play them before my brother died. Everyone has value and feelings and what you do to people really affects them, even on a site like this. Every character in DDLC is dealing with their own issues whether it's depression, obsession, loneliness or abuse. In Life is Strange, Max Caulfield is exactly the person I would be if I was a girl. A little bit nosy, quiet, love taking pictures and observing what's around me.

Earlier in my life when I was still naive enough to think I could be a hero, it was Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 which got be interested in the military. Which I joined and gave a solid go at. I got injured and ended up coming home but it's whatever I guess. I think Mario taught me to keep trying and it also got me into art because I enjoyed drawing the characters from it.

The one game that has shaped me more than any other has to be Undertale, specifically the Pacifist run. It helped me so much to come to terms with the loss of my dad, which changed my life in more ways than you can imagine.

I recently got that one for Switch although I haven't gotten very far in it yet. Flowey's a sketchbag.

I highly recommend finishing it if you can, it's one hell of a game.

I don't think I could say that any game has shaped me (only because I'm not much of a gamer). But I can definitely say that Pokemon games used to bring me a lot of comfort when I needed it, and the franchise was a huge source of joy in my childhood (and one of the few ways I was able to comfortably relate to my peers).

This is just a cute story, but I work at a school, and last week the kids were practicing reading poems aloud into a microphone (couldn't tell you exactly what for). And this group of three girls had collaborated on a poem that could best be described as "An Ode to Eevee." They listed stuff they liked about Eevee — its fluffy fur, its cute eyes, etc. — and ended by shouting, "I love Pokemon!" in unison. It really made me smile. A lot of the kids enjoy seeing the Pokemon magnets I have on my whiteboard. And I hear them talking about Pokemon in the hallway fairly often. It makes me happy to hear them experiencing the same joys that I did at their age.

Ceta, pokemon definitely still brings me comfort. I play competitive pokes on Pokemon Showdown every day. I play Ubers there if you ever want to whip out Kyogre on me. ^_^ But yeah, Pokemon defined my childhood and mkuch of my adulthood too. I recently got my nephew into it, he's playing pokemon red and he's 7. I'm going to slowly pass him various pokemon games so that he stays interested, just giving him my old games every few months. I have so many, he's gonna have an awesome childhood.

Metal Gear Solid series.

Unironically one of the more intelligent franchises, though it's very poorly communicated at times.

That's the only thing with a traditional story that I would say has changed me. Other games like Unreal Tournament and Counter-Strike have also changed me.

Music has generally been a lot more influential, though.

I look forward to hearing from you in the chillest video game tracks. ^_^

That opening sequence is chilling, and then Ellie alone in the winter section. That was nuts. Some of the best storytelling Naughty Dog has ever come up with and that's saying something. I can't wait for TLOU P2.

Kingdom Hearts I when Sora sacrificed his heart to save Kairi. That taught me to be a better person.

Final Fantasy IX when.....well, pretty much every moment in that game. It taught me that finding where you belong in the world and the purpose you have for living is what you make for yourself.

Persona 3: FES when the protagonists decide to face the end of the world together instead of having their memories erased to forget when the end is coming. That taught me life is too short to be living in fear of death.

Kingdom Hearts and FF9 were two of my brother's all time favorite games. I'm going to be sure to get my nephews into them. Right now I'm playing Persona 3 and loving it. ^_^
