    It's Battlefield 2 or Elder Scrolls Morrowind. Both were the best of their series. BF2 to this day is an amazing game to play, truly a masterpiece of gaming in my opinion that really makes you feel you are apart a of a real epic large scale battle. Morrowind was so immerse, it's insane. It brings an alien world to life, even to this day I found stuff I never saw before the game was that large.
     
  2. I used to play a lot of memorable games on my older pc/mac.

    Redneck Rampage
    Quarantine
    Duke Nukem 3d
    Doom Series
    Carmageddon
    Destruction Derby
    Jazz Jackrabbit
    Terminal Velocity
    C&C
    Warcraft 1/2
    Big Red Racing
    Raptor
    Commander Keen
    Police Quest Series
    Kings Quest Series
    Castles (1991 edition)
    Crystal Quest (Mac SE II)
    Cycles (Mac SE II)

    But I have also played games for NES/Sega Genesis/32x/Sega CD/SNES/Gameboy/Virtual Boy/Neo Geo Pocket/Game Gear/N64/Sega Saturn/Panasonic 3DO/Psx/Dreamcast/GameCube/Ps2/PSP/Xbox/Xbox360/3Ds/Modern PC games

    And I feel like ive missed a few systems somewhere...

    How can I pick a favorite game from all that?? Cant be done...cant be done.. the list would be wayy too long to pick from.

  4. I'm going to have to go with Chrono Trigger here, I love many, many games...(a lot of them have already been mentioned) but generally when somebody asks for my favorite game I have to go to it.

    :O

    Redneck Rampage and Terminal Velocity! I didn't know anyone actually remembers those games anymore. I dropped months into terminal velocity.. and Redneck Rampage was a great shooter for laughs as well. Good times..
     
  6. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series...
     
  7. Star Control II (Ur-Quan Masters for you noobs...) Forget that it was made before most of you were born. Just play it.

    It's crushingly hard to pick just one. My gaming days are pretty much 1987 to present, but the game that sticks out in my mind like crazy is Shining Force II (Genesis).

    There are so many close 2nds, 3rds, 10ths (I wish the question was "pick one from every platform and OS")..... but that game is a damn masterpiece. It's too bad it fizzled with the Saturn and never made a comeback as a series, but damn it was awesome in its day.

    My favorite single player game is tied between Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

    Favorite multiplayer game would probably have to be Super Smash Bros. on the N64.

    By time invested, Counterstrike 1.6 is probably far and away the most played.

    Wolfenstein Enemy territory...With over 5000 documented (xfire) hours of online playing time by myself since it's release. This has been my most played game ever and despite me having lots and lots of games that I paid for, this free game was the one that I fired up day after day for years on end.
    I still miss it, but there's no good servers left near me.
    Runners up would be xcom enemy unknown and the original 8 bit Elite.
     
  20. I always go back to Zaxxon on the C64

    Doom (the original)
    Wolfenstein 3D
