what is the best video game ever

Recommended Posts

There is no "best game" since I like a lot of games equally.
PC = Dungeon Keeper 2 and Half Life 2
Atari = Donkey Kong, Asteroids, and Burger Time
NES = Super Mario 2 ( Doki Doki Panic )
Sega Genesis = Sonic The Hedgehog 2
N64 = Perfect Dark and Diddy Kong Racing
PS2 = GTA San Andreas Edited by Shippou

Impossible to answer... (and Shippou is right, it also depends on the platform), but since you asked...

The game I enjoyed the most (and probably spent [i.e. wasted] the most time with) was Return to Castle Wolfenstein (especially the multi-player part). Second would be the RTCW "sequel" Enemy Territory. Then there is the GTA series... and Doom... and Unreal!... Golden Eye on N64.... and Mario Kart....

There is no best video game ever....

I'd make a list but my top ten would be completely dominated by most of the Zeldas. Basically I think all the Zelda games (except the awful CDi ones) would be my favorites. And then Skyrim comes in under the Zeldas. I've always enjoyed adventure games like that. But I'd put Halo and Mario close behind.

N.B. that was a rhetorical "[i]how many[/i]", which means "[i]not many[/i]"... which logically means "[i]some[/i]"...
Yes I'm aware that other games are present in e-sports; LoL even just had a $1M USD tourny, which is crazy huge!
I love watching e-sports though, so can you recommend any GomTV equivalents ([i]constantly organized/televised pro tournys[/i]) for DotA/LoL?

Perhaps the games I enjoyed the most were Warcraft II Expansion: Beyond the Dark Portal and [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imperium_Galactica"]Imperium Galactica[/url].
I also loved Open Transport Tycoon and Panzer General.

Depends on what day it is, my mood, and what system I am playing on.
I do not have a favorite, just games I like to play a lot.

Nonsense. Duke 3D cannot be defeated. And anyone who was not there to play it on 486 computers will never have the top experience. This implies all platforms not having Duke 3D[size=2](1)[/size] cannot offer the best gaming experience ever.

[size=2](1) Including a time-warp machine back to that day and age, including rollback of your personality with adeguate time-lapse compensation.[/size]

On PC, it's Lords of the Realm 2. There are several major features in the game I never, ever use, and I will sometimes hex edit a savegame so I can have more money, but I still love this game.

On consoles, it's a tie between Megaman 2 and Tetris, but I also really enjoy the simple, stupidish games on Atari 2600.

Starsiege: Tribes
GoldenEye 007
Perfect Dark
Killer Instinct
Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Final Fantasy VII
Chrono Trigger
Super Mario Kart
Super Mario World
Contra III: The Alien Wars
Monday Night Combat
Super Smash Bros. Melee
Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening


One of the best memories of my life was playing through Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past from start to finish in one sitting with no saves with 2 of my friends.
They each had a Super Nintendo Entertainment System and a TV and I had the ROM on my PC (no save states were used).
We all played through together, got all the hearts together, beat all the bosses together, and ate pizza together half-way through.
8 hours later we all beat the game simultaneously with 100% completion, no deaths, and no saves.

They just don’t make memories like that anymore.
