What games grabbed you right from the start?

In the history of your game playing, there are games that quickly grab you or sometimes it takes a bit to get into. either way you enjoy and continue with enthusiasm.

so what games in all the games you've played have grabbed you right from the start?

For me (as far as I remember):
Deadspace
Metroid Prime
Halo
Prey (2017)
Red Dead Redemption
Eternal Darkness
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (Gamecube)
Resident Evil 4
Borderlands
Bionic Commando (NES)
Wolfenstein: The New Order
