    I'm quite sad and remember the tiniest aspects of games, sound effects, the options available on the menus etc., but there are a few who permeate my brain, mainly because of the music. These are Okami because it's so beautiful, Modern warfare 2 and Uncharted 2 (but only because I spent years trying to beat it on Crushing difficulty, and eventually did). For me, sound is the best way a game is engraved into my psyche, anyone agree??

    Blue Sphere, the bonus level from Sonic and Knuckles when you put another game cartridge on. If you didn't put in a cartridge, you started from level 1. I practiced it so much, I easily passed the first few hundred levels after a while. After beginning to collect codes to see how far I could get, I reached over 2,000 before I gave up and moved onto the next game. If you sat me in front of Blue Sphere now at level 1, I guarantee I'd have it memorized.

    I could run you through Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 100% without looking at the screen and simply using my memory, seruisly i can :)

    Probably Zelda Ocarina of Time. I can even get through the water temple with no too many difficulties :P

    Super Mario World for me. I got it on the virtual console and it all rushed back at me. Every jump, every haunted house door, and hidden p stomper thing. First game on the first console I owned.

    Yeah, I know the exact feeling, when ever I pick up Star Wars Battlefront 2, I instantly remember each level etc, and how to win as each team, even when against extra npcs

    Holy shit this happens to me all the time... The most recent being Aladdin on Genesis. I hadn't played it in over 15 years and when I picked up the sticks I didn't miss a beat. I mean I knew every tiny part of every level. It amazes every time I pick up an old favorite.

    happened to me with Oddworld. I played that game a ton when I was 10 or 12. Just bought it recently and breezed through it. And that game is hard.

    Most recently, Demon's Souls. Everytime I play it I get a feeling that it isn't as hard as people say, and I'm on NG+10, getting 1-shotted by almost every single mob.
  • HeroOfLegend - June 24, 2010 4:54 p.m.

    Metroid Fusion, on the GBA There's no game I know better
  • jpalz - June 24, 2010 4:43 p.m.

    The first level in Tomb Raider 2. I could almost play it blind-folded :P
  • Xcelsior1 - June 24, 2010 4:43 p.m.

    Mega Man 2. Downloaded the App version on my iPod Touch and while the controls threw me at first, I smoked that mofo on two lives. Couldn't believe it.
  • rockstarsean - June 24, 2010 4:42 p.m.

    Every ps2 version of PES, I don't want to know how many hours of my life I've put into those games....
  • GameManiac - June 24, 2010 4:34 p.m.

    The Gran Turismo series for me. I got the games (first to fourth) in order, with gaps of time put between them. When I got a new one, the same driving skills that I remember re-awaken. I can make apex turns without skipping a beat. I break at the right moment and with just enough force to maximize speed. And those skills work wonders for me on any other racing game.
  • krabsich - June 24, 2010 4:29 p.m.

    wow, the 2 games i have hardwired are both already mentioned. the original mariokart i had down to a science when i was little, especially avoiding red shells in battle mode. i would count chrono trigger too, but rpg's take a different skill set.
  • ventanger - June 24, 2010 4:28 p.m.

    Exact same thing happened to me getting Doom on XBLA, I knew where all the power ups were, where all the enemies were, and where all the secret wall-doors were. Hell if it was the PC version I could still use the IDDQD (god mode), IDKFA (all guns/ammo), and IDDSPISPOPD (no clip). That's all from memory...
  • Ozzythecat - June 24, 2010 4:23 p.m.

    The first and second Crash Bandicoot, and .hack IMOQ and the GU series...
  • breener96 - June 24, 2010 4:17 p.m.

    Yeah, something like this happened to me. So I used to play Mario Kart 64 ALOT. And I mean nearly everyday for a few years. So when I got Mario Kart DS and saw Moo Moo Farms in it I was really happy because that's one of my favourite courses! Now, I know it's an easy enough course, but I knew it like the back of my hand though it had been years since I'd played it. I knew where the mole-holes were near the end of the course and I kicked ass on it. I never really thought much of it, though, but it is kind of strange...
