Cool Favorite ONE Game for life

I know this sounds crazy but do any of you have any favorite game for life? Maybe there's something so special for you about that game. I can say for me it's Test Drive 2 the Duel. Nothing compares to this game in terms of excitement, not even its archaic graphics can lose to modern racing games in terms of fun factor. This very special to me cause back then I was only able to play it in CGA PC (we cannot afford even an EGA back then!) then now to my joy I'm playing the Amiga version with full colours & digitized sounds! Racing games will become more advance I know but this is my all time fav, hence it's also my nickname. What's yours?

So by game for life I presume you mean you can only ever play this game again?

If that's the case then I'd have to say:

Goldeneye

Diggers (CD32) I have completed that game many times!

I don't know what it is, but I just love Diggers, especially with that atmospheric background track.

I also have Diggers for PC, and the original CD version of Extractors. I've yet to actually play Extractors properly though, (due to it running too fast) I haven't used DosBox yet, so I hope to get it working properly with that sometime.

I'm awaiting the remake of Diggers, but you can't beat the original version. That was perfect in every way for me.

I have the original Diggers/Oscar CD32 disc, so when I feel like playing, I fire up WinUAE and play!

@Retr0-Nerd

Yep, it's possible. I took a day-off from school in 1986 to play through this game.
