    Check this game out, although it hasnt been properly hyped I think that its revolutionary graphics engine and its unique game play will make this game a multi million dollar seller.

    I must admit, I did not see the point in "Black and White" at all :(

    Worst game I've ever bought was either Phantasmagoria or Black and White. It's a hard decision because both games were just so bad. Although there are a few console games which are just as bad like Sub-Zero(from MK mythologies) for N64

    I don't know if anyone has seen this yet, but they just released a game yesterday that is called Hooters Road Trip. I just checked out game review at some random site, and it looks TERRIBLE. Kinda funny though, it is expected since the game only costs 10 bucks it said.

    Sounds like a campy low budget movie about a stripper

    1) Way too buggy due to it being rushed out the door.
    2) More is not necessarily better (maps were too big most of the time, more players didn't make the game better)
    3) BORING in general...due to number 2

    There's one that I threw out recently, but it was so awful my mind has blanked out the title! It was an Egyptian themed FPS. It was apparently released as 'Powerslave' as a (fake) tie-in with the Iron Maiden album of the same name in some markets. I'm sure someone will be able to recall... It was beyond crap!

    Global Operations and Tactical OPN. One advertises SP but does not have it and the other has SP that sucks! I got 2 unplayed games for sale and they are cheap. You pay shipping.;) :cool:

    Oh well. I still liked it. I still don't know how you guys can consider it the worst game ever however.

    Many contenders. Myst (was that really a game??!!), diablo, die by the sword, 1602 a.d., warcraft....I used to have return to krondor, it was really cool, but the cd's got scratched up :(
    Now I play the Civ games almost exclusively, olthough the original AoE wasn't bad. HOMM3:the shadow of death was ok, too.

    Diablo??? Warcraft??? bad games? Man are you crazy? That is blasphemy.. Those are some of the best games ever.

    I don't personally know anyone who has played Diablo and didn't become an addict.

    The original Diablo?? Gee, click. Click there. click click click. Am I having fun yet? Pong was more exciting, lol. I never played Warcraft for over 5-10 minutes, so maybe I missed something...

    I think you have to be of the "Ooo almost at the next level, what new skills/spells do I get" mind to enjoy Diablo.
    Coming from a MUD playing background this trapped me ;)

    Same here, I love games like that. Another game almost as good as the Diablos is Arcanum "Of Steamworks and Magic Obscura"

    Arcanum is an awesome game. I wouldn't compare it to Diablo though. It was made by the people who made Fallout 1 & 2. It's huge. I'll refrain from talking more about it or else I'll feel the urge to re-install it.:dead:

    I was comparing it to Diablo because the feel and gameplay are similar. Yes Fallout 1 and 2 were also great games. But Arcanum was just spectacular, I especially liked the way that every situation you got into had several possible outcomes according to your responses. The one thing I never could figure out was how to properly get rid of Whisper "the elf who wanted to go to Tarant" If I disbanded her as soon as we got there she got mad, if I did nothing she would just say she has to get going every few minutes but never leaves. I just told here to wait for me and never came back for her. I also never found the Azrams Star(or whatever it was called) the thing that was in like a maze with a bunch of torches you had to shoot out. I finally gave up and went about my other quests. I especially liked the Stillwater Beast, the reference to Monty Python was very amusing.

    I loved civ2 and SMAC, but I was very dissappointed in civ:CTP, and I was a little disappointed with civ3, when I 1st got it, but it's really grown on me. There are mods at Apolyton and Civfanatics that nearly make it into civ4:grinthumb
    As far as the magic type of games go, it's old, and sorta primitive, but "Magician", for the old nintendo was good....a lot of those old original nintendos were good...Silent Service, a submarine game, used every button, on both controllers, at once...I taped'em to a peice of plywood...it was great :cool:

    Yeah, it's the same with me. I absolutely fell in love with Civ 2, it was the only thing I played in my Mac days. SMAC in my book is the best game I've ever played. Ah, the memories. I still play it once in a while, too.

    Aha. I saw I very cheap "Arcanum" just the other day and wondered if I should buy it. Couldn't remember if it got real good or real bad reviews though... Seems like a good choice then.

    UPDATE: Aha 2. Just read Gamespot's review and now I remember this:

    Awful combat AND dated graphics? Doesn't sound very appealing.

    :confused:
