Video Games 

Well if we are going to jam on the topic I thought I would start a different thread which is more generalized.

Video games are currently in a Renaissance and have been for some time. So that said, what is/are you favorite video games of all time?

Here are a few of my more obscure favs in no particular order.

Call of Cthulhu
Grim Fandango
Thief
Chrono Trigger
Ultima

RE: Video Games (in reply to akatune

left 4 dead 2 is great together with friends, I played the last assasins creed too, I am a very big fan of the series, because it is an action game that actually has a really deep and complex story, plus they are playing with my favourite subjecy: history

If anyone here is a pc gamer and want to add me on steam my username is milkdream, I will buy the first who adds me a little gift, just because i am a fun person.

Great choices, I've been reliving Chrono Trigger on an emulator (all the games I dreamed of as a child for free!).

Here are some additions -

Commander Keen (pc)
Ducktales (nes)
StarTropics (nes)
Legend of Gaia (snes)
Breath of Fire (snes)
Oddworld franchise (pc / x360)
The Neverhood (pc)

Has anyone here played Skullmonkeys for PSX?

RE: Video Games (in reply to jaggedsphere

IMO, all things considered, my current best-game-of-all-time has to be....

HALF LIFE 2!! (and the subsequent episodes).

The story line, game play, character development, weapons (gravity gun), there's just nothing else in its league.

I'm a 360 gamer myself, and so I'm not really into PC MMO's and such.

Also, the Gears of War trilogy, and L4D series. Pretty much anything by Valve. You can't go wrong with those guys :)

RE: Video Games (in reply to jaggedsphere

not into games since college and right after graduating. My roomates and I had this crazy fun one we could play using one computer keyboard called Star Control....version II was the one we used to melee battle it was crazy fun with space ships and planet gravity swinging...lot of late nights drinking and playing that laughing our asses off and getting mad at the luckier winner.

Then Doom II took over some spare time graduating to Quake and Half Life...but I got into flamenco at that point and no more gaming for me since....oh a brief few days of Mortal combat but it hurt my hand so I stopped.

here is star control:

The original call of duty for pc is on the top ten list for me. Then Crysis, Crysis 2, Battlefield 3. My all time favorite is Space Invaders I have to say. Galaga is also a fun game. Oh, I cannot forget to mention Combat for the Atari 2600. So in this order for me:
1 Space Invaders
2 Galaga
3Combat
4Call of Duty pc
5Crysis
6Crysis 2
7Battlefield 3
8Missile Defense Atari 2600
9Call of Duty 2
10Mafia 1 and 2 for pc

For Xbox 360 you should check out Chronicles of Riddick : Escape from Butcher Bay. It's old -- you can probably get it for cheap (depends on where you live I guess) and probably one of the best FPS ever.

Is this a list of the BEST ten games you've played, or the LAST ten games you've played?

Crysis AND Crysis 2? Chryst.

=P

Gran Turismo on PS1 (yes, the first PS) and
Medal of Honor (MOHAA) on PC were the best games ive ever played. Back then there even wasnt relly an online multiplayer mode, because the connection was bad (at least on my end). Max Payne too

RE: Video Games (in reply to jaggedsphere

I used to really like Subspace. It was one of the first(I think I played around 1996) multiplayer action online games. It was sort of a fancy topdown view Asteroids like game where you go online against other people. There are people with amazing skills. You can come up with some interesting strategies too. I think the fans have kept it around and renamed it continuum. Free I believe.

I also really liked the Baldurs Gate series.

Chester, I'm ok with it, don't worry. I am a very easy going person. I played games more frequently before. I still play them once every now and then but not like I once did.

I've always liked games that take me someplace..
Here are some that come to my mind.

Another world
Ico and Shadow of the Colossus
Monkey Island 1 & 2
Gabriel Knight - Sins of the fathers
Machinarium
Fist II

Haven't played any recent console games except Twilight Princess, which isn't very new :D

Ricardos screen shot makes me think of Master of Orion 2, which is a brilliant old game :-)
