mine is definitely Zelda. my very first tattoo is also going to be a Zelda quote: “Time passes, people move… Like a rivers flow, it never ends…” but pretty sure I’ll get it in Hylian - not sure which version though.
I can’t pick just one favorite game that I played as a child! Argh! x3 I had so many.
The earliest game I ever really played that I remember the most about is Croc, the legend of the Gobos. It’s an early PSX game. It was also on PC which is how I remember it. I played it on Windows 98+, we had gotten the game among tons of other programs from our next door neighbor at the time. It was nice.
Favorite mid-childhood game was Super Smash Bros Melee, and favorite late childhood game was the first Super Mario Galaxy (unpopular opinion but i think Galaxy 2 sucked)
And now currently favorite game is, of course, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
