    I forgot to add:

    Simulation: Ultimate 8 Ball (PS)

    It is the most realistic billiards game I have ever played. I think that the Wii's billiard game may be better though.

    Why is System Shock 2 considered a RPG? It plays so much like a FPS to me....

    This is because it incorporates RPG elements into everything, mainly the fact that the accomplishment of whatever interaction occurs with NPCs and the environment depends on the level of a particular skill. For example, how easily you can hack a system depends on how advanced your hack skill is. The same way, how much damage you can do with a specific weapon to an enemy is dictated by your skill level for that particular weapon.
    Oblivion is also exactly the same, only more advanced.

    Aha, I see. I just never really seen it as an RPG. Though is BIoshock not classified as a FPS?

    I would call Bioshock an FPRPS! (First; Person; Role; Playing; Shooter;) :haha:

    I like the Plasmid's and stuff in the game, but I guess it's not too much of an RPG because it doesn't have stats.

    FPS

    Perfect Dark 64, it was simply awesome, it's weapon switching system, it's multiplayer, co-op, etc. Even though the console sucked... Perfect Dark would of been insane on PC. Unlike Perfect Dark Zero which was a total and complete utter failure.

    Fighter

    Super Smash Bros Melee, I have played brawl but I prefer melee because it is faster. Zelda/Shiek > All, both brawl and melee ;p

    Single player RPG

    Legend of Mana, can't really compete with this game, it has so much to offer, it's unique and it had many upon many hours of game play. Not to mention 3 very unique and emotionally stunning stories.

    CORPG

    Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction, although it has a decent single player... The pvp is very active and it is especially challenging... It is not slow paced thats for sure... However the hackers do not need to be stopped...

    MMORPG

    Trickster Online, A wonderful and colorful game, a bit slow but it's beautiful and has many upon many things to do.

    RTS

    StarCraft, I can't really find a game that can compete with this ( yet ) maybe SC2? Warcraft III is to slow paced.. and you can't zoom out far enough.

    Racing

    Hydra Thunder Arcade, Most racing games have failed it for me.. because it felt all the same... just circling around... However, hydra thunder had unique levels and brought unique racing vehicles whilst at the same time having a variety of racing techniques... only problem is the game did not have enough levels or vehicles.

    While I loved Perfect Dark, it did have things I hated, such as the fact that in multiplayer you can throw proxy mines everywhere (no limit, I don't believe) and block yourself in, and your pretty much unbeatable.

    I think proxy mines and remote mines had a limit of 30 and they can be easily defeated by the almighty bullet, also if I remember right there was a default device that allowed you to detect them ;o

    I don't remember any devices... oh well. I tried playing not too long ago but I have gotten so used to newer and PC FPS, I couldn't play it. I can't use the Joystick anymore. :_(
