GREAT video, my obssession was STARCRAFT back in 1998 to 2001, i was in middle school, and i even deceive my parents, not going to school to play it, they never notice because i was straight A, i played but studied harder just be able to play longer
I remember a sleepover at a friends house who owned Littlebigplanet 2. We had a great time for the first few hours sure, but then we discovered the ''basketball'' minigame. It's a really basic minigame. All players are thrown into a level the size of the screen, there is one hoop on the right side, and you just have to throw a ball into the hoop to score points. Because this game utilizes the grabinator powerup though, you can also pick up and throw the other players. For some reason, me and my friends got absolutely addicted to this gamemode! We played for hours and hours on end, discovering every single thing there was to discover in this level. The best part about the gamemode was to team up on players who had the most points, by throwing the players with less points into the trajectory of the ball so they could hijack it in mid-air and dunk it. I think we played it till like 4am before we finally went to bed. It certainly was one of the most fun Lbp memories I have!
After enjoying your channel for almost 2 years, especially the Friday feature, I can finally have the pleasure to play PS4 games. My console arrived yesterday and being able to play The Last Of Us is such an amazing experience. What a great feeling to be a console peasant. Anyway, I love this channel, you guys are the best.
Greetings from Bosnia and Herzegovina.
My one was the first I ever had a serious go at. I had dabbled in online with Resistance but didn't like the lack of matchmaking because it meant I'd get killed in seconds. Burnout Paradise, on the other hand, is just co-op challenges and mucking about in the open world. There was one time where me and my online buddy, Neon_Donkey, had planned to get the two-player Challenges out of the way, but instead competed for the best time down one of the mountain roads. And it happened AGAIN with the PS4 Remaster!
I've never really played a multiplayer game (unless you count Lego games with my nephew). But I really was obsessed with finding all the Riddler Trophies in the Arkham games. But the last game I felt obsessed with was probably a Yakuza game.
Killzone 2 Warfare. I loved how at the end of each "mode", it didn't dunno you to a menu to start the next game type. It started IMMEDIATELY. You could be hunkered down with your team having just lost team deathmatch, and all of sudden you're at the capture point of the next mode. Did mean quite a long time to invest in each online game, but it was so worth it.
Mode I was obsessed with? Zombies, from the very same series that caused the creation of this video. I was in this group of 5-6 people who would sign on, every night, as often as possible, and just go round after round until we were either too tired (happened often), or someone got booted (usually). Of course we have less time now - adulting is hard, no- but I remember looking at the total time I'd logged like "yeah, that sounds about right" XD
Mass Effect 3 and Dragon Age: Inquisition multiplayer. Probably put 700-800 hours in between them, unlocked every character and every unique weapon. Much less stress in a co-op mode compared to your typical online experience.
YES ROB! I'm glad you brought up MGO <3. I didn't go online with my PS2, but i played MGO in MGS4 and it dominated years of my teenage life. I have friends to this day who i I've met in real life that i originally met on MGO, great times.
My first multi-player experience was on "serious sam: the first encounter". Me and my brother were playing death match in split screen not realizing we used "network" instead of "split screen" in the menu. All of a sudden someone with the same skin as my brother's started knifing me over and over again, i started questioning what the hell is going on and asked him when did he become so good at knifing. He said he's never even used it so far. I told him what was going on and all of a sudden 3 other players join the game and we start to realize that we somehow ended up in an online gamemode, which we never knew even exists. We went insane and adrenaline started rushing like never before. Definitely the greatest feeling a gamer could experience.
I never got to play online with it, but the Ratchet & Clank 3 multiplayer was my jam. I was so good amongst my friends and I loved playing the mode so much.
Another I was also really good at specifically is Gun Game from the Black Ops games, specifically 1 and 2.
For me it was Team Fortress 2 on the orange box. I know it's only a vanilla version compared to what pc players have now but man was it fun. I even still have a couple people on my friends list from that time I used to play.
It would actually be cool if they did take around 3 weeks until they come back, Meanwhile the only uploads are from Dan “The Patient Gamer” with long streams of his gameplays of different games with commentary every now and then that would be nice.
Mine is *Quick Play* on "Friday the 13th", I just can't get enough of *playing with others* surviving or escaping Jason's murder rampage. And to be fair I am rather good as a counselor, though I can't help Jason is super-powered.
I used to be all over Rock Band 3 online too (years ago), it thrilled me to think I was playing with others like a band!
Gears of War, Horde Mode.
Back in the good old days, when we didnt have responsibilities, all my friends would gather with all of our TVs and Consoles.
System link them all together, order pizzas and just chill for the whole weekends playing Horde Modes.
For some reason, as the weekends went on, we’d get worse and worse. Maybe it was the lack of sleep...or the beers.....? 🤔
Sir Galahad I guess that’s true but that still doesn’t mean that gambit wouldn’t be deserving a spot on the list if it met said requirements. You are completely right but I just have a hell of a time playing it and it’s only my opinion.
*You do know that the title of the video is game modes we were [past tense second-person singular, past tense plural, and past subjunctive of BE] obsessed with a recent title does not really qualify since it is recent compared to their choices*
MLB The Show 18 - Diamond Dynasty mode. More of my life was consumed by this mode this year than I should ever admit. Conquest mode in particular... I burned so many hours trying to finish that... for little to no ultimate reward. My friend and I got so deep into collecting various player cards, tweaking our lineups and pitching rotations. Card values increase or decrease in real time, and these changes can be viewed in a spreadsheet not unlike the stock market. Certain players would get hot in real time so their in-game card values would increase, so you were always waiting to sell that one card for a premium or buy that one highly coveted card on a fire sale. I can't remember the last time I was truly addicted to a game mode like I was with Diamond Dynasty.
Speaking of ghost mode there was a game called Motoracer i think. Me and my cousin competed against each other for suck a long time. We were professionals on just one map we New what times we had to make for each turn and when to boost. Was fun
I have a question, I got rocket league while it was for free, but it wasn’t a PlayStation plus thing. So it was probably after that. So I don’t need ps+ to play it, but for someone who did get it with ps+ before that, do they still need ps+ to play it?
I’ve got two games. I’ll go old-school and obvious with the first one: Goldeneye 64. No surprises there, I’m sure. My second game is Rayman Raving Rabbids, especially the dance mini game. Holy $&*#, did my friends and I spend hours on that game.

The second one balances difficulty and RPG mechanics seamlessly to make the game always rewarding. " Free. Recommended March 6. "Fun and engaging game with a twist that comes out of left field. Not very long, but worth the time, definitely worth a second play through to unlock all its secrets.
