It's only fair....

A game I haven't been able to put down lately is Tales of Symphonia.  I <3 RPGs, and that you take such a role in battle RT is my fave aspect.  The character designs and unlockables make it a good play... even past the 100 hr. mark.

My favorite game ever played will always be River City Ransom. Nothing beats rolling through a city pounding the snot out of your own age group that inhabit said city. Man... good times, there.

Oh man, I loved River City Ransom. Me and my sister played that game for hours on end. I loved Super dodge Ball too, so much that it makes me wonder why Technos Japan doesn't really make games anymore... but I guess they really must have not sold that well for whatever reason.

Blaster Master was another one I played a lot of. Never beat that game, it got so difficult, and it was one of those older games with a limited number of continues.

Lately I've been playing a lot of Sid Meier's Pirates! It's really good. Also EverQuest II, but the game is so buggy right now I can't fully recommend it. It's way fun though despite it all, if MMORPGs are your thing.

Technos doesn't make games because they no longer exist, dude.  RCR EX was put out by Atlas.

But yeah, RCR is addictive. Even after you're stats are full, you just keep taking kids' money Hehehe

Bubble Bobble was frickin' awesome too. I kept looking for that game on Game Boy when I finally got one, years ago... but could only find wierd offshoot titles that were named the same but were not actually the same type of gameplay. o.O

What was up with Super Dodge Ball in the arcade, btw? Was that also made by Technos Japan? It was so different and... crappy. In the arcade.

Funny if you go through all of Technos Japan's releases on NES... they like recycle the same BGM for like all of their titles lol.

I cant narrow it down to one so I will make a small list:

Baldurs Gate 2 - RPG perfection if you ask me. Played it trough twice so far and enjoy every single minute of it (that adds up to hours and hours).

Diablo 2 - Cant say that this is the best game out there. Its braindead, simple and SO DAMN addictive. Played it on and off since the release and just quit it for the 3rd time (deleting everything I got each time). I blame friends online for making me stay with this game for so long.

Half-Life - Best FPS game ever if you ask me (closly followed by HL2).

GTA:VS - Dont need to say why.

River City Ransom truly was a god among games.  

I was also a fan of Sid Meier's Pirates-- I see there is a new version out, too.  Does anybody know if it is any good?

I liked it when games were nice and uncomplicated.  My brain can't keep up with fifty buttons and such.  RCR was great because it was a classic example of "walk around the streets of slum city and bash people" with the stores added as a little twist.

best oldschool arcade game: bubble bobble, for realz

best arcade game: street fighter 2 (and all the subsequent versions)

best fps: halflife 2.  apart from the ending, this is absolute goddamn gold

best rts: starcraft with the broodwar add-on, hands-down the best-balanced RTS i've played

best scrolling shooter: ikaruga.  simple idea, pulled off absolutely awesomely.

best MMORPG: i'm gonna have to say World of Warcraft.  i mean, i've only played Everquest, Final Fantasy XI online, City Of Heroes, Guild Wars & WoW, but as far as i can see, FFXI was pretty much the best ever, and for me WoW has beaten it.  they haven't done it with flashy graphics, they've done it with cool gameplay.  i'm close to level 20, and for me it still mostly feels like a really good single-player RPG that just so happens to have these other dudes running around in it that you can team up with sometimes.  i mean, ask me again in 30 more levels & i can give you a better comparison to high-end EQ gameplay.  but so far it's got FFXI's 1-20 gameplay beat.

Using My friend's NES, I got into "Bubble Bobble", and "Air Fortress."  
When growing up I played Sid Mier's Civilization (for DOS)

Fast forward one decade, "Final Fantasy XI" kept me busy for nine straight months, longer than any other game (don't play it anymore :().  
I am currently into "Halflife 2" and "Rome: Total War."

I'm a sucker for the GTA series. The original GTA, on pc kicked ass,it was the game that got me into games. It was great to play and easy to mod if you were sad like me. I'd probally still be playing if today the cd hadnt exploded my cdrom :/

GTA VC and SA are both pretty sweet, as was GTAIII, but the PS2 dosent match up to the PC - the graphics arent as good, and i miss aiming with the mouse and being able make the cars stupid fast, IMO the story and charachters in vice city were betterthan san andreas too - i cant wait till SA comes out on the PC, but until then i'd say my favorite all time game is GTA VC.

The only other games that come close for me are the quake series, maybe mario kart double dash(gamecube) or colin mcrae 2(psx) for multiplayerness, but then again i havent played a whole lot of games.

For best game ever I'd have to go with Civilization 2 or X-Com.  Those two are just 90's classics which are still worth playing now and then.

Ico.  The game made me cry.  No other game has ever done that.

Freespace 2, maybe.  I'm playing it again, and it's just so amazingly good.

XCom was pretty much the business too.  Scared the crap out of me.  I made the series extra psychologically damaging by renaming all my troops to names of my good friends.  So I'd have to send my good buddy Simon out into the hall to eat plasma, not just some faceless grunt.

I can't decide.

Argh.  How does it end?  It ends well.  I don't know how much is in the demo, but there's a ton of dark vs.light, life vs. death imagery and associations going on through the game, especially the last parts.  The more I think about it, the more amazing I find the game.  Once again, mostly because of the ending.  I'm really hesitant to give it away for anyone, because I really think it would detract from the experience.  It was one of the most satisfying storytelling experiences ever, for me, and I don't know that I can adequately explain why.  That includes books, movies, plays, opera, etc.

And here's where people respond, "Bah the end sucked nothing that amazing happened." and I become depressed.  The game had me in its grip from the opening cinematic.  The first time Yorda got attacked I jumped up off the couch (still holding the controller and playing) like someone had slapped my sister.  I was absolutely furious with the monster.  Not the game, not the designers, that specific monster.

EDIT: Digs, you are clearly lacking a soul. :(  There were one or two rooms where getting her in the right place was difficult, but that's it.

I grew up with Pirates! since it was my dad's favourite NES game. He actually has the map memorized. It is quite funny. And we have another NES, so he spends marathons on it sometimes. He is very good.

Shadows of Yserbius. Ignored, insulted, imitated. Old game, but I love it. First game I ever played(not including math blaster), and I still love it. Hard to nowadays, being that the underdogs had to take it down, and you can't buy it anywhere, except by contacting the original creator.

then again, i think my life is crap and RPG's are a great escape, ans so are consequently take up most of my small library of games (my friends get mad because i have so few multiplayer titles)

oh man, secret of mana was multiplayer?  i really now feel like i missed out.  is FFCC worth the single player alone or is it a group of friends and ze bucket that make it solid?  rare is the time i can multiplayer it up.  though when i have the friends and i tend to end up playing "Link toss" instead of advancing.

oh and i think was referring to ffIX only.

I wouldn't get Crystal Chronicles for just single player, but if you can find 3 people to join in, it is awesome.  Especially tough boss fights and stuff, where it requires coordinated spell casting (multi-caster combo spells with particular effects), healing, physical attacks and bucket management.  It's glorious.  Everyone's yelling and running around at the same time:

"Who has Life?  We need a Holy on that ghost, I combo with Fire, ON THREE!"
"Bucket is heading toward the cliff, everyone move!"
"Charging Ice on that Orc, everyone with ice combo for blizzaga!"
"That bomb dude went down, everyone get away from it!"

Single player is just you and a moogle, which is cool--but just not cool enough.

A DS version is coming eventually, and thinking about that makes me very happy.

Favorite PC game: Freelancer  (easy-to-mod open ended space games rule)

Favorite console game:  The original Super Smash Bros.  A friend and I rented it right after it came out, and played it for eight straight hours.  No bathroom breaks, no snack breaks, just bashing each others' heads out.  It's a shame that the graphics are sobad I can't stand to look at it anymore.

Favorite handheld game: Super Mario 64 DS.  Awesome remake of the original on the NDS, it kicks butt.

Gotta say, no game has ever immersed me as much as the original KOTOR (haven't beat the second one yet).  Seriously, never saw the twist coming, and what a great one it was after that.  After I found out what was going on, my character suddenly became a baddass!
