View Full Version : Favorite Game of all Time

06-27-2003, 02:59 PM
I was just curious as to what game has been on your hard drive the longest and why that game is your favorite? Mine would definetly have to be Fallout 2 because of its dark and humourous backround, great characters and the depth of the game.

06-27-2003, 03:05 PM
Probably Tie-Fighter. Excellent game, controls, graphics (for the time), wonderful missions and intriguing plot.

Honourable mentions to Zelda: OOT, Chrono Trigger, Jedi Knight, Doom 2 and Goldeneye though.... :D

06-27-2003, 03:10 PM
Tie-Fighter was definetly an excellent game too:D

Speaking of Honorable Mentions, Max Payne really deserves one for having an excellent story, great graphics, and was a whole lotta fun to play:)

I'd have to say JO, because I have it on VCD, and Splinter Cell is probally my favorite.

Nice, 1800 posts!

06-27-2003, 04:31 PM
i was having alot of fun in Splinter Cell until i had to protect the American and Chinese hostage.....really hard......:mad:

I'm going to say Halo, followed by Age of Kings: The Conquerors.

I choose these games because of the multiplayer fun that i've had with them. I play Halo with at least 8 other guys, (usually more) at LEAST once a week, and The Conquerors I network 4 computers together at my house and we have 4 player Conquerors action.

Age of Empires
for senarios and multi playing
and hillarious cheats,
also for most replay value.

Starcraft for incredible cinematics,
good storyline fun in playing all three races,
great to blow things up real good.
like AGe it has endless replay possibilites
and is best of all real time strategy games.

UT Gold Edition my fav FPS

Grim Fandango my fav Lucasarts game.

Exile Myst3\Riven Myst2\Myst
most beautiful games ever made.

Amercian McGee's Alice
dark and surreal FPS\Linear game
and hotest CGI babe in entire virtual world.
so much hotter than Laura Croft.
Cheshire Cat is hillarious and sardonic.

i remember the good ol' days when me and, like, ten friends went to a local computer store and played Starcraft for 3 or more hours for 2 dollars and hour ( they had a really good internet connection and pretty fast connections) ahhh, the good ol' days....like 5 years ago :p

Hmm, I would have to say all the Zelda games I got.
No matter what ppl say, those games will always 0wn you!


06-27-2003, 04:50 PM
hey, anyone remember the Amazon game? It was a very good adventure game to my knowlage, but i was too young to really understand it before my older brother lost one of the floppies.

06-27-2003, 05:04 PM
My fav game...Jedi Outcast hands down...i also like Q3, BF 1942 and RTCW, HL and MOH:AA

Discworld - Funniest game ever.

E.g. The part when you look into a mirror and the main character says 'What a ludicrous painting' In the amazingly funny voice that is Eric Idle (Monty Python Actor)

Neverplayed Discworld 2 properly due to lack of sound, but still a great game.

The Monkey Island series was good, but now it's lost its charm.

Sam and Max Hit the Road - Very Funny

And finally, although after much critisism, my most played game at the moment is Enter the Matrix. I can't get enough of the Chateau levels, and Agent fighting is the best. I don't find it the least bit annoying. Great game.

06-27-2003, 06:02 PM
man, i need to check the forum some more... dont know barley anyone who posted here... :confused:


JKII: JO (My favorite till JK: JA comes out! :D )
Zelda OoT
Spider-Man (not the movie game. Dont know why, its a short game, but i keep playing it :D )
just about any star wars...

06-27-2003, 07:58 PM
It would be too hard to pick just one game... But if I had to, I guess I would choose TRIBES 2. That games (multiplayer obviously) is just soooo incredibly fun... heck I still play it after so many years! The fast paced action, along with TONS of ways to play the game, the bases, just the whole feel of the game was awesome... It has to be THE best multiplayer game I've ever played... well possibly untill Tribes: Vengeance comes out! :).

But Asheron's Call comes VERY close as the best multiplayer game... So far I have yet to play another MMO where player SKILL had more to do with success than character level... The story line and monthly updates were also really cool... I just loved playing a mage so much back in the day... 3 years ago, but its just not the same as it used to be... The new updates changed alot for the better... but overall AC lost alot of what made it so special, that's one reason I stopped playing a few months ago. Still, those first few months of playing AC can never be replaced... the mysteriousness of playing my first MMO ever, and the fact that I was in a game with thousands of other players was something I had never experianced before in a game... And even after the mysteriousness wore off the game was still awesome for 2 and a half years later...

For single player games Dark Forces takes the prize for sure... It was really the first game I ever actually played through and beat, which leaves alot of fond memories... Also, even though there have been 3 sequals to DFs I still don't think any of them matched the Star Wars atmosphere, amazing level design and dark setting. Some of my best memories of playing a single player game were in Talay Tak base, and Imperial City... Not much more I can say about this game except that I wish Lucas Arts would've kept making the DF games instead of letting Raven develop the new ones... Atleast Jedi Knight was exeptionably good and Mysterious of the Sith was even better even if they didn't QUITE reach the level of DFs in my opinion.

I also loved Super Mario 64. It was a pretty long game with a good level of difficulty (not too hard not too easy... but I was pretty young at the time...) it had some really great levels with really rich atmospheres such as Boos Mansion, and that Underground level with the Lok Ness Monstery like creature :). Come to think of it practically every level was fun to play and varied in setting... I also really like the Bowser levels. I hope Super Mario 128 lives up to Mario 64, since I don't think Mario Sunshine really had was made Mario 64 so great.

Two other superb games were Sonic Adventure 1, and Sonic Adventure 2. I thought SA 1 had a much richer atmosphere, which was only amplified by the great music. Also, SA 1's exploration levels were sorely missed in SA 2. Also the Boss Battles were MUCH more interesting in SA1. Still I thought SA 2 had much more intense and fast levels as Sonic And Shadow... I mean it was just pure joy to race through the jungle, and highway level... Also the final Boss was pretty cool, especially the way you fight in him space, but Chaos Zero was much better :).

That was kind of long... but I had to do each of those games justice :).

06-27-2003, 08:17 PM
My all-time favourite was Zelda: Ocarina of Time... I liked Majora's Mask as well, even though no else seemed to...

Currently I've been playing the crap out of Medal of Honor: Allied Assault with the Spearhead expansion... I've given up though, I can't take playing the game with a constant of 10fps (I honestly don't remember ever getting over 30 fps in that game... I really need a new computer)

MOH:AA had the most brilliant warfare recreation I've ever seen... My only problem is that the multiplayer needs some tweaks.. but over all, is pretty fun...

06-27-2003, 08:20 PM
Silent you did a great job at doing those games justice.

As for my favorite War game, mine would have to be the recently released Blitzkrieg. It has flaws, but is an excellent tacticle game and is really fun.

06-27-2003, 08:23 PM
My god... I like so many lol... I would have to say Zelda:OOC/MQ or most of the Black Isle games... YES FALLOUT OWNS ALL!!! lol

Jedi KnightII still is one of my top multiplayer games...

06-27-2003, 08:26 PM

06-28-2003, 02:31 AM
METAL GEAR SOLID. Still the greatest in my opinion. Second, followed closely behind would have to be JKII. Still a great game.

06-28-2003, 06:57 AM
SinglePlay: Deus Ex!! Splintercell was good, definately in the top 3, Max Payne was also great, Jedi Outcast too and the original Half-Life SP was great too...

Multiplay: Counter-Strike!! No game has ever addicted me so much as CS. It's still the most played game online and it deserves it, the gameplay is just great, if you know the right servers (right, PrimoSidone ;) ??)... Other than CS, I like JO, Day of Defeat and The Specialists (HL MODs), and UT2003.

06-28-2003, 07:35 AM
Damn right :cool:

06-28-2003, 01:48 PM
yeah, i got CS, its a good game, and id play it more, but i cant connect to like half of the servers... :( if i could, id play it more :)

06-28-2003, 02:42 PM
Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight. Best Star Wars game ever...period!

Yea i agree ;)

06-28-2003, 10:17 PM
Deus Ex was a VERY excellent game, although i don't understand why my twin brother hated it so much.....twins are supposed to think alike....right?

Anyway, speaking of Fallout 3 Camus, you should check out the No Mutants Allowed website. It has a ton of info on the Fallout games and contains alot of rumors and some true facts about the development of Fallout 3. It's very interesting......

06-29-2003, 02:05 AM
1. Mafia
2. Splinter Cell
3. Jedi Knight 2
4. Medal of Honor: Allied Assault
5. The Legend of Zelda Games
6. Warcraft 3
7. Starcraft
8. Rise of Nations
9. The Sims
10. Battlefield 1942

06-30-2003, 06:36 AM
1. JKII - JO
2. Age of Empires 2 - the conquerors
3. Age of Mythology

06-30-2003, 08:01 AM
Hands down(Being a skater) it's definatly Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2. I don't know why, but I never get tired of that game. I could free skate at the school 2 level for hours on end, with sim mode on. Of all the thps games, 2 is the most realistic(especially with sim mode on:D) 2nd would go to Perfect Dark. My mom and dad don't let me play it, but I do anyways(They probably know it, but they don't really care). The combat simulater is one of the most fun things I've ever played. And it's one of the few fps games I've played that I don't suck at(besides JKII). I go into temple, as a trenchcoat wearin alien, with a team of trenchcoat alien normal sim pals(at least 3), against A team of Evil trenchcoat wearin Joannas and her clones. Good fun:p Third, JKII. 4th, Enter the Matrix. 5th, zelda. 6th, Shenmue. 7th is mario kart on the SNES!w00t! 8th is Legacy of Goku II for GBA(Working on beating it). 9th, Phantasy Star Online. 10th, Worms II for PC! That game is just plain fun and(if you set it up the right way)insane!

PS-If I had an X-Box, HALO ALL THE WAY! These are just the games that I own. I play HALO every time I go over to a friends house.

06-30-2003, 09:28 AM
Haha worms 2 indeed IS great! It's one of those very few games that let you have a fun game against your friends on the same PC :)

06-30-2003, 09:44 AM
HAVE A FREE HERTOG JAN, HERTOGJAN! Every time my friends come over we play that.:guiness:

06-30-2003, 10:09 AM
Well for single player, Deus Ex is just the best game. Ever. I've played and loved so many games over the few years that I've had a decent PC, but absolutely nothing even comes close to touching Deus Ex. Absolutely brilliant.

As for multi player though, I'd say Battlefield 1942.

06-30-2003, 10:51 AM

Thx m8, appreciate it :) Have a very special "Hertog Jan Hoogstpersoonlijk" beer, it's a very special beer brewed by Hertog Jan, only available this year!!


Oh and 'Hoogstpersoonlijk' means 'very personal', or something alike :) It's like the new Hertog Jan slogan, beer brewed personally or something :)

What was your favorite Worms II weapon? I liked the super banana bomb, but I sucked throwing it to the right spott, allways wounding myself :) So I guess my ultra-tweaked master destructive homing cluster grenade is my favorite :) I prefer Worms II over the other (newer) worms game, since it's easy to configure the weapons and make your own soundpack :)

06-30-2003, 11:00 AM
Splinter Cell and Halo and JO are my favorite.

06-30-2003, 01:28 PM
Top 3:

1. Last Ninja 2 (Atari)
2. Legend of Zelda OoT (N64)
3. Goldeneye 007 (N64)

Now I ask, who in thier right mind does not like Goldeneye?

=(BoD)= M.D.B.
06-30-2003, 01:46 PM
Favourite game is black and white

06-30-2003, 02:00 PM

Too bad Nightfire and Tomorrow Never Dies were absolutly atrocious:rolleyes:

06-30-2003, 11:47 PM
This is a tough question!

I would Have to say.......
Enter the Matrix for GameCube

06-30-2003, 11:59 PM

07-01-2003, 05:22 AM
In no particular order:

Oregon Trail ;)
Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2
NHL 2001
Sim Ant
Aces High

If multiplayer is good (haven't tried it yet), Rise of Nations might end up on that list.

07-01-2003, 05:27 PM
Oregon Trail!!! HA, i remeber me and some friends playing that game in Elementry school on the old Apple computer just to see how long it would take us to kill all the party members !! Ha..... good times.....

Anyway, i really like All Star Baseball 204 for the X-Box, good quality game there:)

07-01-2003, 05:36 PM
I love Goldeneye... :)

07-01-2003, 05:48 PM
Good man Semi.
Yeah Bongo, I would have said Perfect Dark but I only play MP.

07-01-2003, 05:52 PM

07-01-2003, 08:13 PM

07-04-2003, 01:47 PM
FFVII is my favorite game of all time

07-04-2003, 10:24 PM
Gran Turismo 3 A-Spec. That's the only game I still play when i'm bored of all my other games. There's a lot of awesome games but whenever i'm bored of my kick ass games I always goto Gran Turismo 3. I just can't wait for number 4!!

Oh and Final Fantasy X and JK2 and Diablo 2:LOD as well.... as notable honorary's.

07-04-2003, 10:44 PM

Definatly very very good times. I remember 5th grade we had 2 contests with that game.1)Who could win the most times with the fewest members(I won with 5 with none dead), and 2)Who could kill their party the quickest(Iwon also, it was before the first river). Any how,

I now have a new temperary 2nd...THPS3 on PC! That is one of the best pc games ever made, and I can't wait till 4 comes out on pc.

07-04-2003, 10:46 PM
Mike changed his favorite to Perfect Dark...good job man. I think my # 1 is tied now, with PD and THPS2.

07-04-2003, 10:51 PM
Aye I used to own Perfect Dark, but I had a brain fart and sold it :(.

I could've bought it used from EB for 20$$ but I hesitated and the next time I went back to that location, it was still there. Again I was pondering buying it. I really wanted it but something held me back.

I think the fact that FPS is better done on PC and I played the hell outta Perfect dark the 2nd time around I was quite sick of it. Still dual Maulers = coolest weapon duo ever in a FPS. I also like dual dd44 Doestovi's(sp?) from Goldeneye.

One of the reason's I bought a Gamecube was because of Perfect Dark Zero. But castrate that damn Bill Gates and his company Microsoft for buying Rare to make exclusive games for them. Which now means i'm screwed with a good system with crappy games (I own 3, which is pathetic), and no hope in site.

My vote still stands. Gran Turismo 3 A-Spec? No one here is a racer? Man I own to many racing games....

07-04-2003, 11:39 PM
I just saw T3 and, for some reason, i really wanna play Fallout 2 right now....so i will :D

07-04-2003, 11:41 PM
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Its just that good. :D

07-05-2003, 02:28 AM
Wow, I'm surprised so many people like JO so much as to put it on their number 1 spot in their list of the best games ever...

I wonder though, have most of those people played the rest of the series? Because I personally thought JO (while having alot of cool stuff) just couldn't compare to the older games... and just felt out of place in Star Wars (which I contribute to Raven creating the game). Maybe it's just me though...

Also.. Has ANYONE here played Tribes 2 or Asheron's Call? I can except AC to go un-noticed because it's a rather small MMO (even though a surprising number of AC players also played JK, and JO)... But Tribes 2 is just an amazing game and (atleast I thought) quite popular... especially 2 years ago. Just wondering...

By the way... A few other games that I also found to be very fun but forgot to mention were Metroid Prime, Mario Kart, Paper Mario, and Pokemon Red/Blue... Those were all great games in my opinion... MP for the good storyline, cool bosses and fun gameplay... Mario Kart for the amazingly fun multiplayer (especially Battle), Paper Mario for the surprisingly addictive and fun gameplay, with a great combat system, and cool locals, and lastly, Pokemon for the deceptively deep gameplay, interesting story, and the shear fun of collecting the little creatures (and no, I'm not afraid to say that ;)).

07-05-2003, 03:08 AM
these are in no particular order, but i like:

Legend of Zelda:Ocarina of Time (awesome battles!)
Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2 (SPEED!!)
Goldeneye (awesome multiplayer)
Medal of Honor:Allied Assault (one of the best WWII games ever!)
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (kicking a$$ with a sword was never more fun)
Mafia (good story and gameplay)

07-05-2003, 05:02 AM
i would have to say Goldeneye

07-05-2003, 06:39 AM
The first Monkey Island. Ive played that game through so many times its not even funny.

07-05-2003, 06:50 AM
Alot of people have picked JK2 it is a pretty good game! But its a tie from Goldeneye and Perfect Dark.

07-05-2003, 07:38 AM
PD rocks! But i've never played Monkey Island...

07-08-2003, 01:56 AM
another game that i like is... Bid For Power. its a Quake 3 Mod. its DBZ. its sweet too!`

07-08-2003, 03:36 AM
1. Unreal
2. Unreal Tournament
3. Unreal Tournament 2k3

6. any NCAA College Football by EA sports

9. N64 Super MarioKart

07-08-2003, 09:46 AM
My top five games of all time must go in this order -

1: James Bond 007 - NightFire.
2: Hitman 2 - Silent Assassin.
3: Star Wars - Bounty Hunter.
4: James Bond 007 in... Agent Under Fire.
5: Metal Gear Solid 2 - Sons Of Liberty.

These are all the PlayStation2 versions... I won't take no PC rubbish in my house!
This order is set to change by Christmas, pending the release of James Bond 007 - Everything Or Nothing, which promises to be the best Bond game ever, including some class talent from Brosnan, Willem Defoe and Richard Kiel. Third-Person action, flying, driving, skiing and swimming... what more could you want?

Playstation :- Gran Turismo 2 all the way.

So many cars and so many tweaks, the gameplay was superb the tracks were brilliant and above all it had Lancia Delta Integrales. its also the only game that didnt have issues that annoyed me.

PC :- JK2 probably, although the patches only ever opened up more gameplay issues. Closely followed by Soldier of Fortune 2.

07-08-2003, 11:45 AM
i had recently bought the Leisure Suit Larry Series on a 2 disk set, and i can honesly say, Love for Sail and LSL 6 are probly the best of the series :p A great series i might add

07-08-2003, 11:57 AM
Favorite game of all time:

spin the bottle. I had l337 crazy-mad necking skillz back in tha day playa! ;) that's before everybody started cheating! Dang ex-cheating girlfriend! I'll report you! :mad:
