What is the most fun you have had with a specific portion (or an aspect of a game)?

My all time favorite was the Greenmaze screens of Landstalker (Genesis) - it is pretty much like being stuck in the middle of a Escher print.

After that I really enjoyed (once you got it) the block making abilities you eventually get in Vandal Hearts II (PS1) - kinda like playing with simplified legos (that had the decidedly added advantage  of not hurting if you stepped on them in your bare feet). Building walls, stairways, bridges, forts and what-not was pretty amusing. This went a long ways toward making up for  the miserable battle system the game had.

As a kid, my cousin and I would spend a ridiculous amount of time playing Virtual Bart, specifically the tomato throwing level.  We were always there just to look out for the twins. I have no clue why we thought that, specifically, was so hilarious, but once we finished the level, we'd restart the game just to play it again.

Also THPS3 is probably the only game with a level I could play for literally hours and hours, day after day (the Airport).  I probably spent over 40 hours on that one level.  It makes me want to go back to it now.  If only it were on the Switch.

I played numerous seasons of Blitzball the first time I played through Final Fantasy X.  Never realized people didn't like the minigame because I had a blast.  For all I know I might have put in equal time blitzing and working through the story.

All the neat little surprises in Tales of Phantasia...wow the first time I played it, the surprisingly R rated dialog in a game seemingly starting four adorable kid looking characters...and I kid you not my jaw literally dropped when the "f's like a tiger" line came up!  But aside from that, the intro with spoken dialog, a soundtrack with one of those colored meter things you find in stereos, the "not getting my Bud Light guy", the cute way your character leaves footprints in the snow and a few seconds later the snow covers them back up...just all those neat little things in the largest SNES game ever (tied with Star Ocean at six megabytes or 48 "megabits" as the preferred measurement in those days).  That along with finally getting the BS-X feature to (mostly) work right on my SD2SNES, it's like I had no idea just how Super the Super Nintendo really could be!!

I also loved how charming and funny Misadventures of Tron Bonne and to a slightly lesser extent the entire MegaMan Legends trilogy was.  So into those games I was that I did transcripts/guides for all three games waaaaay back in my early 2000s college days.

I really enjoyed Wing Commander: Privateer as an early open-world space sim, and played it to the point where I had exhausted all possible story routes. Against my own expectations I ended up getting into the very rudimentary merchant aspect of the game and spent literally months pointlessly shuttling goods from base to base looking for the best deals. The trade system is comically underdeveloped by modern standards but somehow this has become one of my favorite gaming memories. I was oddly into Steve Miller Band during that time, so to this day whenever I hear "Jet Airliner" it immediately takes me back to flying around Gemini Sector in the ol' space Winnebago, smuggling contraband while avoiding pirates and Confederation authorities. Good stuff.

I'm having a tough time thinking of the single most enjoyable section of a game, but I can tell you that I'm having a blast with the endgame in Ori and the Will of the Wisps right now. Once you have all movement upgrades, fighting enemies and traversing the landscape is like a ballet of speed and destruction. It's really delightful and I wish everyone would play it.

I like farming, grinding, whatever you wanna call it in an rpg when there's good music playing, and that feeling of completely obliterating a moderately difficult enemy you previously lost to when you come back with like 521309121398498 xp is so satisfying. This song and place will always be a favorite...Those poor howlers 😢

 Also liked the casinos in various games

 

Thats the kind of stuff my mind went to. The games you play in link to the past and ocarina of time are big ones for me. Pretty much all the stuff in the light worlds that aren't levels. I could go bomb chu bowling, fishing, and play arrow shooting games endlessly.
