I''d like to know which games do you think are the best games ever made ? The one you''ve played a lot, without finished ''em after 3 days, with the best and more original design, best background and so on. Mine are : PC: - Ultima Underworld (I''ve played and finished it 6 times, it rocks everything) - Arena && Daggerfall (finished it after +- 400 hours hehe) (Don''t know about Morrowind yet, I''ve started it a short time ago). - Ultima 7 part 1 & 2 - Bioforge - Dungeon Keeper AMIGA: - Kult (The temple of flying saucers, Protozorks are cool hehe) - Eye of the Beholder 2 - Ultima 5 - And a lot more I can''t remember right now

pacman, tetris, reversi, chess, roller coaster tycoon, starcraft, finaly fantasy 7 and 8 (8''s iffy. 9 is out of the question), the original sonic, super mario world and super mario 3. for fps games, I think half-life and red faction are the best because they were obviously thought out well when story comes. most other fps games have no story and if they do, it''s pretty lame and non-intriguing. Oh yea, and advance wars. That''s all.

Just to let you know, using the term PSX when reffering to the playstation is in no way correct. "PSX" was simply one of the early codenames for the PS. Yes I know, many retailers still use the term, but it bugs me everytime I see it, so there ya go.

Some favorite games: Quake 3 Arena, FFVII, Tekken 3, MGS, Tetris,

Many more greats but these are the ones that pop into my head first.

SNES:
Secret of Mana (multiplayer action-rpg. This game simply rocked)

Arcade:
Tekken 2 (only - played this one regularly with a now ex-girlfriend for nearly a year)
Soul Edge (same as above)

Dreamcast:
Soul Calibur (Best beat-em-up to date)

Older PC: (Atari ST, Amiga, older commodore, etc)
Shufflepuck Cafe (So simple, yet so addicting)
Arthur (the infocom early graphical hybrid - I pick this up again on occassion, loved the puzzles that required shapechanging)
Pirates! (Not the "Gold" version)
M.U.L.E. (simply a classic)
Ultima IV - The best Ultima in my opinion. The quest for personal/moral perfection was an excellent idea.
Zak Mckraken and Monkey Island
King of Chicago (Dolls, pineapples, and random events. Tons of replayibility)
Road War 2000 (hordes of mutants, street gangs, what more could you want?)
Dungeon Master & Chaos Strikes Back (not DM II - ugh!) The two greatest dungeon crawls ever made.

More Modern PC:
Maelstrom (Ambrosia Software, go get it now. Addicting like Civilization, but doesn''t take a month to play through a single game - Best Asteroids clone ever)
Thief I (Setting, setting, stealth - for some reason II seemed to be missing something)
System Shock I and II (I for the cyberspace interface, II for the more polished gameplay. II with I''s cyberspace would be perfect. Being toyed with by a hostile AI(s) was a great setup)
Civilization (If you''ve played it more than once, you know)
Colonization (ditto)
The Quest for Glory Series (Great adventure, you can play through 3/4 times as different character types end up taking different approaches)

NES:
Penquin Adventure (mastered at the age of 3, I can''t beat it anymore... )
Bubble Bobble (still probably the most fun 2 player game I''ve ever played)
Megaman (the first one, it was just so dang hard, and the music was good too)

SNES:
FF6 (all time favourite, with a name like LockePick, can you tell?)
FF4 (more basic, down to earth FF6)
Secret of Mana 2 (I actually got somewhere on this one)
Chrono Trigger (most flawlessly perfected complex storyline)
(hehe, I realize I loved the SNES just because of Square...)

N64:
Super Mario 64 (totally "rocked my world" when I first played it, I got the 64 because of it. Wonderfully executed)
The Legend Of Zelda: OOT (best control scheme, ever)
StarFox (my entry into 3D space-shooters)
Goldeneye (this game defined and perfected mission based FPS''s, nothing has been the same since)
Banjo-Kazooie (okay, plays like Mario, but with such humour and originality I am still entranced by it)
Smash Bros (I still play it, constantly. How long has it been now, 2-3 years? The only game to beat Diablo 2 in play time)
The Legend Of Zelda: Majora''s Mask (feel sorta cheap mentioning 2 zeldas, but this one deserves as much credit as the first. People didn''t realize the astounding depth that was put into the beginning town alone. I''ve spent days trying to follow every schedule, find every event, and it was always fresh and fun)

PC:
Diablo 2 (multiplayer fanatic ever since)
Ragnarok Online (sure the game is still in beta and has always been hopelessly flawed. Doesn''t change the fact I''ve been a big [and cheap] MMORPG guy ever since trying it)

Long Nintendo history, call me a kiddy fanboy, but I like them...

- I suppose so, said Alice.
- Well, then, - the Cat went on - you see, a dog growls when it''s angry, and wags its tail when it''s pleased. Now I growl when I''m pleased, and wag my tail when I''m angry. Therefore I''m mad."
