26. Shenmue (PC) - 17hrs
Do you even forklift, bro? Seriously, that harbor segment went on for a few more hours than I'd like but that was my only real grievance with the game. What a wonderfully simple yet impactful story, fraught with relaxing piano scores and corny (in a good way) memorable characters. It's not hard to see why this game has a cult following. I was pleasantly surprised, and the saga will continue when I start Shenmue 2 very soon.
