    Shamelessly nicked from rllmuk.

    You get a choice of 8 games, one online only. Consoles/PC included with the game.

    One piece of gaming literature.

    One gaming luxury, that isn't 'more games' you clever bastard.

    Obviously wi-fi and electricity is included.

    Offline games:

    Football Manager 2018 (PC) - The game that never ends.

    Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ (PC) - Again, no run is ever the same. Well, they'd end up being the same but it'd take fucking ages.

    Super Metroid (SNES) - A masterpiece. What I will always see as one of the most important games ever.

    Trials Evolution (360) - The absolute best game in a monster of a series

    Borderlands 2 (PC)  - All these years later and I'm still not bored of its gaming hooks.

    Breath of the Wild (Switch) - Similar to above, despite it being a new game. I feel its one I'll revisit constantly.

    Dark Souls Remastered (PC) - Never been into the MP and its fucking amazing.

    Online game:

    The Golf Club 2019 (PC) - I played the beta. Its amazing. All those courses. Incredible game.

    Literature: 

    Breath of the Wild guide, as even with all the free time in the world I'd still never be arsed to find all the korok seeds naturally.

    Luxury:

    XBox Elite Pad - Its so freaking sexy.

    When you say one online only, do you mean that you can only have one game which you are allowed to play online, or do you mean one game which can only be played online?

    Minecraft and Elite pad would do.

  • I'll need a ruling on leaderboards/user generated tracks pls.

    Edit: Ah, Wi-fi - so leaderboards covered.  Can I download tracks?

  • If so I'll just take Evo and become THE BEST.

    Only one game you can play online, aka online is only available for that game.

  • Anyone who says GCN animal crossing gets no more choices.
  • I might take Dark Souls, it's about the only situation I'd want to play it.

    Of course, I could then find out that everyone's talking bullshit about it being amazing, so it's a little risky.
  • Yep. It’s why I’m sticking to games I’ve played that I know I can just keep playing.

    Down with this blatant cheating.
  • Pfft. I’m counting releases as they could be purchased.

  • (Halo 3, Dark Souls 1, and Bayo 2 if I must choose.)

  • Bitch. 

    Done.
    "But enough talk. HAVE AT YOU!"
  • Some Civs, some Marios, 3DS with ACNL. Tetris. No literature thanks.
    Luxury would be a Sega Rally cabinet. Or maybe a pinball table if that's allowed.
  • Went for Halo: CE in end as I think that’s (possibly) the best campaign. Love it.

    Ask me another day and I’d probably go for 3.

  • The latest Edge would do as bog roll I guess.
  • Trials Evo - online
    Super Monkey Ball
    The End is Nigh (could'e picked Meat Boy or Celeste, but TEIS is a smidge tougher imo, I'd presumably be rescued before I 100%'ed it)
    XCOM2
    A golf game, probably Mario golf 3DS but as I've done that to death I dunno.  If The Golf Club had a snap I'd take that, but maybe Everybody's Golf would suit me better, even though I hated the levelling system of the new one.    
    Trackmania Turbo
    The latest Fifa or Pro Evo, toss a coin.

    I don't tend to replay games unless they're GIT GUD things, which means the desert island setting is a bit wasted on me.  So I'll take The Witcher III, Football Manager and Spelunky too.  If I don't like them I'll still have Trials.

    Ah...a list-me-do -

    Online : Mario Kart 

    Offline (score & time attack and a spread of genres) : 

    Tetris Grandmaster 3 - haven't played it but the zenith of hardcore toughness and there's plenty of different modes, 

    Mushihimesama Futari v1.5 - best shooter I've ever played. Plenty of modes.

    F-Zero X - pile of tracks (+ the X cup) and a great TT mode once Master mode is beaten. Plenty of vehicles too. 

    Asteroids Dx - an endless joy for me.  Probably cheating as this needs the cabinet. If I can't have that then i'll take DoDonPachi

    Super Breakout - The paddle control and 4 different modes makes this genre complete. 2600 version.

    Trials HD - beautiful control and TT once all the cups are beaten, 

    Dr. Mario - when I need a break from Tetris

    Gaming Literature : Art of atari   (pictures can be looked at for longer than words)

    Luxury : arcade stick for TGM3 & Futari OR a TATE display.
    .
  • My gaming luxury would be The Addams Family pinball table gaffa taped to The Twilight Zone pinball table.

  • I've changed my mind, I'll swap the pinball tables for a Spotify app.  Or a big MP3 player to plug into the console, assuming you can still do that.
