Probably Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy.
I also liked Half-Life² alot, but it just didn't last as long.

Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

and

Goldeney 007.


Close contenders are last Ninja 2 and Midnight Resistance (atari).

Tell me if I'm wrong, but isn't this the best COMPUTER game you've played? Whats up with the console games listed? :confused:

Anyways, Jedi Knight, no doubt bout it. I even made a list of my top 10 games:

Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight and the expansion Mysteries of the Sith.

Many have come close, but none ever equalled the long-term fun I had with that one. It'll always have a special place.. ;)

the Half-Life series, the Kotor series, and the Chronicles of Riddick: EFBB top my list.

James Isaac
03-27-2005, 03:01 AM
Grim Fandango (http://dod.dotagame.com) and Monkey Island, but for games that aren't adventure, I'd say Half-Life 2 :D

Wraith 8
03-29-2005, 07:54 AM
tough one.

Galaxies for me comes close. butthere has been a few i really thought were remarkable.

Command and Conquer. (almost all off em)
Rollercoaster tycoon
Transport tycoon deluxe
Carmageddon + splat pack
the GTA series
the delta force series
a lot of the need for speed games

these games have pllayed a big part of my world :) psst carmageddon is good for getting rid of your anger :p

Wraith 8

kotOR I (1.04) is the best game ever.

runners up include -

Dark Forces 2 - Jedi Knight, Tie Fighter, and possibly kotOR 2 (depending on how good the patch is)

I'm not much of a console gamer, but my all time favourite game is The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

As far a CPU goes....
Kotor 1, Madden NFLXXXX(buy it every year, never disappoints),
Fallout series, Tachyon:The Fringe (Bruce Campbell, What more needs to be said?), and Vampire:Bloodlines....It all depends on my mood, so I can't pick just one!!!
:cool:

The Golden Sun series (GBA)
Call of Duty (PC)
Deus Ex (PC)
Jedi Academy (PC)
Knights of the Old Republic (PC)
Fire Emblem (GBA)
Unreal Tournament Series (PC)

Warcraft III (PC)

...My favourites. In no particular order.

The KOTOR series rocks, as does the Jedi Knight Series (Dark Forces series). I'm also a great fan of the GTA series.

Jedi Knight : Jedi Academy, even though it is aged, stays a true reference for Star Wars games...

shukrallah
08-07-2005, 09:20 PM
Oh yeah, the MGS series, MGS 1 (50 MB DEMO at Download.com) and MGS 2 are both on PC. Ummm, as for consoles:

Zelda, MGS TTS... ummm, the star fox series is good. Soul Calibur II was cool. 007 Everything or Nothing is probably the best 007 game EA has made. The gameplay was actually cool, and it appears that they put a lot of work into (except that last fight... and CG cutscene... so rushed it wasn't cool, actually it was disapointing)

Leviathan
08-08-2005, 10:22 AM
I thought 007 series was made using elements of Half-Life, like AI or models... Right ?

Snafu7
08-11-2005, 01:35 PM
the best PC game I've ever played is either BF2, or half Life 2

I'm kinda biased, but Grim Fandango will always be my favouite game, closley followed by the HL games (inc CS / CS:Source)

Leviathan
08-30-2005, 09:41 AM
HL games ? As the first Half-Life title and its add-ons ?

Kurgan
09-09-2005, 07:42 AM
Consoles are computers, he didn't say PC.

So technically he should have said "video game," since that would cover arcade, console and home pc. ;)


HL games ? As the first Half-Life title and its add-ons ?

He said:

Emphasis mine! I'm assuming he meant the "entire series."

Boy we're nitpicking today eh? Myself included. ;)

I thought 007 series was made using elements of Half-Life, like AI or models... Right ?

Do you mean GoldenEye was based on the Quake 1 & 2 engines? I never heard of any connection, in fact I just sort of assumed that the "007 games" used their own engine(s) but I don't know that for a fact. I would think if they used a popular liscensed engine I'd have heard about it. Not every FPS has to use an id Software based engine though.

I don't remember exactly anymore... I just know some 007 series' games were made around Half-Life's engine and AI... But which ones ? :confused:

shukrallah
09-09-2005, 11:10 PM
I know one 007 game was made using the Q3 engine, so I have heard. It sorta feels "Q3ish"

Modern 007 games couldn't be from HL1... they look too good to be. Maybe an old N64/PS1 title... maybe. Tomorrow Never Dies was a game, wasn't it? I heard it sucked really bad though.

Leviathan
09-10-2005, 09:40 AM
It was a PC game (Amongst other platforms...), if I'm wrong... And you're probably right when you say "Tomorrow Never Dies" was a bad game... (I believe it is the Half-Life's engine-based 007 game...)

The best game I have ever played is Deus Ex. It had a well developed story line, immersable locations, interactive game play, excellent hud system. It combines the best of FPS/RPG games. Runner up would be Jedi Academy, but only because it has an extensive modding community. Now if they could only combine the two, add Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator for air vehicles, Grand Terismo for land vehicles, vehicle damage, npc/item/world interaction like in Morrowind, they would have the best game in the universe.

Lemming Ball Z (http://www.acid-play.com/download/lemming-ball-z/) has moved up on my list considerably.


Seriously though, Commander Keen 6 comes in second. Classic gold.

11-06-2005, 10:28 PM
I got to add Resident Evil 4 (GCN) to my console list... very good. But I think Twin Snakes still tops it.

I would have to say these are the games where I had the best SP experience...

Deus Ex (the original)
No One Lives Forever 1 & 2
Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight
Half-Life 1 & 2
Neverwinter Nights + all expansions
Unreal + Return To Na Pali
Thief 1 & 2
Gothic II

And these are the games I enjoyed most for multiplayer...

Call Of Duty + United Offensive
Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory
Jedi Outcast
Rune
Unreal Tournament (original)

I'm still playing and making levels for Doom / Doom II, easily the best first person shooter ever. It also has a thriving editing community, so there are always plenty of new maps to try.

Runners up: Falcon 4.0, Klingon Academy, Tron 2.0, and KOTOR 1

I haven't really played many computer games. Some of the ones that I have played though include RC, BF1, BF2, Civilization3, RCT2, ZT1/2, and some others that I don't remember right of the top of my head. There are many that I would like to get, but other activities are taking up to much of my time, including this, lol.

I also remember watching my dad play Wing Commander and Steel Panthers when I was little. They looked like good games, but I was too young to understand. I wish that I still had them.

Well, seeing as how Ive never played a game more then it Im gonna have to say Star Wars Galaxies, but only up until the "New Game Experience". I put a little over 2 years into it.

Hard to choose, really. FPS would be a contention between Doom and Chronicles of Riddick. Adventure...holy crap you don't want me to list all the Sierra and Lucasarts titles do you? RPG...basically everything that's uh good, from Deus Ex to System Shock, from Baldur's Gate to Fallout. Strategy Heroes of Might and Magic III, this is a sure winner lol
