I thought we should let the board decide... What''s your favorite game, for any platform, and why? I was just wondering... Sometimes even chickens need to eat... Don't bang your head against a wall just to enjoy the good feeling when you stop.

My favourite games (I can''t just choose one!) are the games which I go back and play more than twice and still have great fun no matter what stage of the game I am at.

They would have to be Xwing Alliance and Star Control 2.

My favourite games of all time would have to be the Monkey Island series and the Space Quest series.

X-COM: UFO Defense. Hands down for me. I think I''ve played it through 3 times, and I''m sure I''ll go back to it again.

I played DOTT, Thr33d. It was pretty good, but one thing that adventure games can''t do (or the ones I''ve played) is give replay value. You play it once, and I can''t imagine playing it again. I think Bernard RULES though. I want to use his image as a logo.

DOTT ruled - there''s nothing controversial about claiming it to be one of the best games of all time!
Although, I''d have to go with System Shock myself, or Grim Fandango...Quake was excellent, people give it too much crap cause they are embarassed that they liked it like everyone else did!

Thief was definitely near the top of my list. It was so original. Another question... What is it about these games that made you like them so much? For thief, it was the originality, and the focus on stealth. On top of that, it was a very pretty game, and it had really good a.i.

Tekken series...best fighter to date...I feel it is the one game series that comes closest to representing martial arts fighting styles, with just the right amount of strategy...Cant wait for the PS2 to hit american shores so I can play Tekken Tag Tournament untill my eyes fall out

--bah! who needs a signature?!

TFC....(well it not really a whole game but anyway)

I like team\class based games. Games where teamwork is essential are heaps of fun.... I once played TFC for 36 hours straight

Apart from that my current fav is AOEII, I find that unlike many other strats AOEII doesn''t have any overt weaknesses (that I have found yet) (Anyone remember working out sandbagging by themselves in C&C)

I liked battlezone II but the AI wasn''t done well enough. The strategy AI must have been bare bones, it''s awareness of your actions and intentions was low. The 3d AI (tanks) were given reflexes that were too good and not natural. Remember ducking and weaving online to throw off the enemies aim, it makes no difference to BZII.

That leads me to think that just about all strategy AI''s and 3d AI''s should be pretty similar. Same there isn''t a STL like AI so companies can start making good AI''s in every game.

It''s funny but the game I''m making is a cross between TFC and BZII... No strategy elements though...

Starcraft

Lots of games are good but after a while you stop playing them. Starcraft is one of those games you just keep going back to. I''ve played hundreds of games and I''ll probably play a hundred more before warcraft III comes along and replaces it. (just don''t play hunters or BGH though)

In single player Zelda for snes is probably the best I''ve ever played.

Baldur''s Gate because I played through it 3 times with 3 seperate characters and still had fun. And because it proved that 2D games could look and play (in my mind) as well, if not better than any 3D game. Alright. Maybe its because I have an old computer (PII 233 with VOODOO and EAX)and can''t play as many 3D games as I''d like...

I don''t think I have ONE favorit game. But I loved:
Day Of The Trentacle(as someone already mentioned),
Sim City 2000, Trasportation Tychoon, Rollercoaster Tychoon,
Half-Life, GTA, Civ 2, C&C(all of them), Total Annihilation.

And the BEST RPG I''ve ever played was: Secret of Mana
Because that ROCKED!

I agree with Mindwipe, Secret of Mana was for sure one of the best RPG''s I''ve ever played. Another one was Soulblazer (both snes), especially liked the music. Some other all-time favorites are (no, I can''t specify only one):
- Civilization I & II (hah! come on, whole world, try to defeat *me*)
- Indy 4 (Dr. Jones, I presume)
- D.o.t.T. (Maniac Mansion 2)
- Half-Life (still love to play it)
- Sam''n''Max (now just splat that rabbit! *g*)
- Tomb Raider II (classic, the others were just crap)
- Jedi Knight (use the force, luke... err... kyle)
- Might''n''Magic series (move, tab, save, win)
- Albion (nuff said)

I miss ye good ol'' adventures''n''RPG''s

hopes best for TRNS <-- http://www.discreetmonsters.com/
