    I was going to say GTA franchise, but I guess most people already went for it.. So I vote for Half-Life franchise.

    I can't believe a rather short single-player game could make me feel like I'm being brought to the game for an amazing tour. As far as gameplay is concerned, the plot is solid, entertaining and never bores. Take valve's own Portal for an example.. It is fun with the co-op mode, but the "puzzle" theme gets your hands off the console (or PC) before you know it.
  2. I play sc2 everyday but KOTOR II was amazing! Wow what a plot.

    MMO: Ultima Online
    Shooter: Unreal Tournament 2004
    Platformer: Castlevania: SOTN
    SHMUP: Ikaruga
    JRPG: Chrono Cross
    WRPG: Baldur's Gate II: SoA
    Puzzler: WarioWare Series
    Fighting: Marvel vs Capcom 2
    Simulation: FreeSpace 2
    Flight: Crimson Skies
    Racing: Mario Kart 64
    Strategy: Advance Wars GBA
    RTS: Homeworld
    Hack 'n' Slash: Bayonetta

    Too hard to pick one overall, if I had to pick one overall though it likely wouldn't even be on the above list because I'd have to compromise too much.

    I was checking the rest of the comments and I find out you are the only one who complains so its really just you looking for heated conversation what a childish thing to do , get a life , and look at the rest of the comments you will find many other people shared the same opinion as mine

    Hidden and Dangerous. Buggy but brilliant. Why are there no plans for this franchise?

    A bit late:

    Absolute Favorite: Final Fantasy Tactics

    Honorable Mentions: Final Fantasy VI, TESIII: Morrowind.

    Oh god the number of hour's I've poured into FFT and Morrowind, I don't even want to know. I had several unique playthroughs of FFT at the max save timer of 99Hours 59 Mins and 59 seconds. Same with Morrowind.

    It's a tie between Descent 2 and Mass Effect 2. Freespace 2 gets first runner-up.
  10. Been playing games since black and white pong so I have quite a few. I will list the ones that sucked the MOST time out of my life. It would be impossible to choose one:

    NES: Final Fantasy
    SNES: Final Fantasy 2, Super Metroid
    Sega: Shining Force 1
    N64: Goldeneye
    PS1 and 2: nothing really stands out but Vanguards would probably be my most visited. XCOM UFO Defense. Vandal Hearts was good.
    PC: Civilization 1-5 (I have lost GF's because of this series), XCOM UFO Defense, Everquest 1, Jagged Alliance 2, World of Tanks, Age of Conan
    More Recently: ESO, Watchdogs (currently my most played)

    Well than check again. You're calling me childish but you just told me to get a life? Do you see what you've done? You're a gamer with a long list of games and you're telling me to get a life. Seems reasonable.

    Hunt for Zelda's Secret Garden sounds a bit dodgy especially as it is online only :eek:!

    Fallout 3, the first REAL game I'd played for Windows and was instantly hooked. :)
  14. UT2K4 remains the best multi player I've played. Hoping the new UT is as good and massively online. Imagine 1000 vs 1000 all day, would be like a real war. Once you don't have Comcast
