Some of my Favourite Games would have to be:

-Quake 3 (4 is good, but online play isnt as good as q3 thats just what I think)

-Unreal tournament 2004

-Starcraft

-Warcraft II (am I the only person who loved that game? I never got to finish it because my old monitor was to dark so you couldn't see those dam oil patches in the water it all looked the same colour!)

-The Curse of Monkey Island

-Runescape (I know im gonna get a ton of abuse over that, but I just find it a good way to pass the time)

-Hidden & Dangerous II Kicked serious ass! Just remembering it, it was pure class

-Command & Conquer series, it's all good.

-Now Half-Life 2, I installed it recently but whats with the long loading times, and that whole steam thing seems pointless to me.

-Commando's 3. It was a good game I spent many an hour on it.

-Grand Theft Auto (the original all others except 3 I found terrible)

-The Sims not a bad series at all.

-Max Payne, classic game as well.

Sadly enough, I too enjoy Runescape from time to time.

Goldeneye or Ocarina of Time for N64. both. awesome. games.
If anything, they were the only reason to buy an N64 in the first place.

Sadly enough, I too enjoy Runescape from time to time.

I pity you...

pity, nothing.  Don't you notice the amazingly unclear graphics? the crappy point-and-click system?  the option to follow people that users constantly abuse, and annoy the hell out of everyone?



oh, wait.....  :oops:

I have a strange relationship with this game. I've never finished it, not once. But i love it's music. Really, it owns.

The same thing happens with a lot of japanese rpgs. Some i haven't even played. But they would be worth having on soundtracks alone.

Also, Smash Bros for Nintendo 64 is legend. I remember me and my brother used to play against each other and we were both so good it would sometimes take hours for us to kill each other. He was a sore loser, so he would press that annoying botton sequence that quits the match whenever he was about to lose. Once, i felt i had enough of it, so i disconnected his controller before he could do it. Got me a black eye and lot of pride.

Since there's no way I'll ever be able to pick one favoritest-geegolly-I-love-this-game game, I'm just going to list games that have kept my soul firmly in their pocket like so much change and a stick of gum for long periods of time.

It probably all started KOEI's original Romance of the Three Kingdoms title for 8-Bit NES.? Back in 1990, my brother and I used to drive our parents freaking bananas at the dinner table, talking about Cao Cao, Sun Ce, Lu Bu, Xiahou Yuan/Dun, Ma Teng, and all these other two-thousand-years-dead Chinese warlords.? They probably thought their nine-year-old was possessed.

After that, I'd have to say Shining Force and Shining Force 2 for Sega Genesis.? Holy crap.

Dragon Force for the Sega Saturn -- that game will always remind me of Megadeth's "Cryptic Writings" and Bruce Dickinson's "Accident of Birth."? Twisted Metal 2 for PS1 was a *great* party game, as was Virtua Fighter 2 for Saturn.? We used to have tournaments all through the winter of 8th grade, with about 20 people in one basement, every Friday night.

Final Fantasy VII on PC, as meh as it is now in retrospect, made me stay inside a lot during the summer of '98.

Shame on me for saying so, but The Sims would make entire days pass by without me noticing, back in '00.

And the most recent additions would have to be Star Wars -- Knights of the Old Republic on PC.? I played that way too many times.? I'm still feeling the ticks and jitters from just having cancelled my World of Warcraft account last week.? That was two years of my life down the drain, but it also got me a trip to Vegas, which was fun.? Now I find myself happily enjoying Oblivion on the PC, and other games on the PS2 I got last Christmas... God of War, Shadow of the Colossus, Guitar Hero I and II, Star Wars Battlefront, etc.

All in all, much of my life has been wasted on gaming.? Join the club, eh?

Week by week, Final Fantasy XII is edging into this spot. The game is just fantastic ? most FF games devolve at some point into a race to finish off the story line for me, but I keep finding myself wandering off to do side quests and kill hunt marks instead of sticking to the main quest. Not to mention I hardly ever hit the 55-hour mark in a game these days ? and I'd estimate there's at least 10 or 15 hours of game left in the main storyline, and that's without any sidequests or whatever.

Yeah, I should be receiving a package of Christmas presents from Mom and Dad soon, and I'm expecting a wrapped Final Fantasy XII in that box.  This'll be the first Final Fantasy title I've actually owned since VIII, back in '99 on PC.  I'm very excited.

I totally forgot Earthbound in my post. Love me some Earthbound. I had monomania for that game for close to a year...

The original Tetris.  Nothing else I've ever played has come even close to the pure addictiveness of it, and the music is absolutely perfect.  It's a pity that every title released since has been crap- Worlds had a saving grace in that the backgrounds and the announcer's voice alone made the game worth playing, but the music was horrid.

Also, Final Fantasy IX and V.  Two of the greatest RPGs of all time.

in my heyday my favorite game was Legend of Zelda: A link to the past
I had a big 2D fighting game phase. I still love to play them. There's no reason to not know all the street fighter turbo and alpha characters. Also street fighter 3 characters. Dark Stalkers and King of Fighters rock also.

my favorite games today are 2 player arcade style games:
exampe: Buster Brothers Collection (PS1)



I am still looking for an epic game like oblivion but with different dynamics.
Someone mentioned Quest For Glory 4. I like how you can train your chracter to be stronger by killing things, rope climbing at the gym, etc.  Yet it was still an adventure game like the 'amazing gastronomical and cultural phenomenon' that is Sam and Max.
