Deadly Premonition is in my top ten of all time. It's basically an amalgamation of Twin Peaks and Shenmue flipped upside down. I've always looked at it as a fan of both these series attempt at providing closure for both simultaneously, since they both have cliffhangers and it's been years since they ended. When you look at it in this light, it's even more of a great game.

Shadows of Memories/Destiny is a fantastic game. Highly recommended. Charles Martinet plays the antagonist. You might recognize him as the voice of Mario. He's relly great in it, too!

I have too many favorites to list, really. Been gaming for three and a half decades. A couple of games that really affected me that you guys might not be very familiar with include

Nightshade (NES)
Pitfall 2 for the Atari
Shadowrun for the Mega Drive/Genesis
Killer 7
Sword of Vermilion
Goonies 2,
Gitaroo Man
Rygar (NES)
The Immortal
Flashback
Out of This World/Another World
Foxhunt
Star Control 2
Syndicate Wars
Blaster Master
Aerofighters 1-3 / Sonic Wings
Mr. Bones
Dragonforce
Lunar 1 and 2
X-Com 1
Karnov
Grandia
Golgo 13
Karateka
Combat for Atari
Super Dodgeball
E.T
Clock Tower
Crash n the Boys
and Psychic Detective

Big fan of most of the games you guys mention, as well.

I haven't played it, yet, but Proteus seems wonderful. It is an open world game of audio-visual exploration and discovery.

One of my favourites of recent times was Blue Dragon on 360. I really enjoyed it, and so did my wife (who isn't a gamer at all).

If you have any (really) good recommendations for detective-type games (like, investigation gameplay, stories about mysteries to be solved, and the likes), I would be more than happy to hear.

P.S.: But not titles about CSI etc.

I read a review today of a new game that sounds very much in this mould, though I haven't played it myself to pass any personal judgment. It's called The Vanishing Of Ethan Carter, for PC and (eventually) PS4. Look into it perhaps.

Deja Vu and Nightshade for the NES were both great detective styled games. Nightshade even being a hilarious parody. I highly recommend them both. Childhood favorites!

On Steam there are a ton of hidden object games that you might get into, just do a search for the tag. Also Humble Bundle at the moment has the Blackwell Conspiracy games along with a slew of others for about 6 bucks. You'd probably like the Blackwell games, Giorgio.

It's hard for me to pick a favorite game since I've played and completed so many. I need categories. For a long time Ninja Gaiden on the xbox was my favorite game. It was fun to play, the enemies weren't just there for me to kill them...they were there to kill me, wall running was great, the game looked marvelous. It was the first game that felt like a legitimate challenge and it didnt have to resort to cheap tactics the way part did.

It looks very interesting. (I wish the first person camera will not cause me nausea... Really, I've a problem with that type of camera movement.) Thanks for the heads up.

...I will play anything (in a matter of speaking) but not hidden object games... Unless they integrate that gameplay mechanic in a way that is not a mere/mindless challenge of observation on a screen clogged with ...hidden objects.

Haven't played any of the hidden object games, but from the numerous trailers i've seen alot of them have interesting puzzles and seem to require some detective work.

Lumines is another favorite of mine.  I think it's my number 1 puzzle game especially the way the game changes musically based on your movements, combos and stages. So many if those artsy games that are raved about now clearly owes it all to Rez and Lumines and creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi

Tetsuya Mizuguchi is a god walking amongst mortals. Just like Yu Suzuki.
