Hard to pick and rank since there have been so many great games I've played over the years, but at the moment it would be something like:


Planescape: Torment
Baldur's Gate trilogy
Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines
Deus Ex
Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri (+ Alien Crossfire)
System Shock 2
Neverwinter Nights (1 & 2 + expansions)
Knights of the Old Republic (1 & 2)
Myth:The Fallen Lords
The Elder Scrolls IV:Oblivion (+ expansions)




Having missed Planescape, VtM: Bloodlines, and The Witcher I can't rate those. ;(

Not too late yet, while the first two might be a bit tricky to find they are still available and works to play on today's computers. Well worth the effort in my opinion. :)

Warcraft 3
Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Super Smash Bro.s (N64)
Final Fantasy X

These are in no particular order, 'cuz that would be even harder than this already was - there's lots out there that I like. If I'd played Planescape Torment I'd probably add that. I want to play it sometime, though.

3. Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic I(I)

KotOR/KotOR II are about equal in my books so share number three. In total there are five... I can't think of any beyond those five.

I'm not that bad that you expect me to make a mistake like that, am I? :p

And yes, Final Fantasy VIII and VI is way better than VII! :xp:Funny you should mention that as Final Fantasy VII has to be one of my favourite game of all time! :D

Onto Ze List Then:
10. The Legend Of Zelda - A Link To The Past. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Legend_of_Zelda:_A_Link_to_the_Past)
A Super Famicom classic, this is not only in my list but is also one of my favourite Zelda games of all time.

9. Star Fox. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Fox_%28video_game%29)
'Nuff said really! :D

8. Front Mission. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Front_Mission)
Where to start? i can only explain this game to be a blend of Action, RPG and RTS elements rolled into one. Great gameplay and involving story, by the great minds at Square.

7. Super Mario Kart (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Mario_Kart)
The original Mario Kart was great and still is great. For it's age it still holds up pretty well as a strong racing title and the graphics at the time we're pretty good.

6. Spot Goes To Hollywood (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spot_Goes_To_Hollywood)
Apart from being (IMO) the best platformer game ever devised, fans of the original Cool Spot would love the sequel. The PSX version was updated with a whole load more content and would be the version i would recommend.

5. Darklight Conflict (http://uk.psx.ign.com/objects/002/002041.html)
A hidden little gem. A great Arcade starfighter sim with engaging levels and pretty neat weaponry. Admittedly not as good as Colony Wars but still worth the look.

4. Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ocarina_of_time)
The best Zelda game ever created (i'm sure most people would agree with this). The story, gameplay and world was everything i wanted to play in a Zelda game. This is one game that will never grow old for me.

3. Super Mario 64 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_mario_64)
I'd be surprised if some people haven't heard of this gem. Mario's outing onto the 64 was just unbelievable, and showed that Mario could truly work in a 3D setting rather than the 2D sidescroller that gamers had previously been used to. Perhaps the best game to also grace the N64 aswell.

2. Final Fantasy VII (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Final_fantasy_7)
My personal favourite in the FF series. For one it was the first 3D FF game and had an immersive story, arguebly the coolest baddie ever in a videogame (Sephiroth) aswell as the best sword (the Buster Sword) and had very addicitive systems and minigames such as the Materia system and the Snowboarding minigame. For those who have never played a FF game before then this isn't perhaps the best to begin with but to those FF Veterans whom gave this a miss for whatever reasons wouldn't be dissappointed (well i hope anywayz).

1. Drumrolls please ..................... Chrono Trigger!! (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chrono_trigger)
Any RPG fan or game fan alike shouldn't have gave this one the miss. This is not only my fav game of all time but is also my fav RPG of all time. Square produced a game entirely different game to it's hot Final Fantasy franchise by placing the battles in realtime instead of your characters being whisked off randomly into battles every so often. I also felt that leveling up in Chrono Trigger was more refined and more challenging aswell. The story, at the time, also wasn't so RPG generic and so wasn't itself a cliché of past examples of the genre. Switching back and forth through time also gave the game an unchronological structure and almost gave the game a non-linear feeling; a rarity in games of the era.

All in all im a bit of a Retro Junkie, but there's nothing wrong with that now is there! :D

Funny you should mention that as Final Fantasy VII has to be one of my favourite game of all time! :D

Oh, believe, me I love Final Fantasy VII. Aerith is my favorite character. :) It just...frustrates me somewhat. I love learning all I can from it, and enjoy all of the characters, but when I play it...it jus doesn't connect with me. But VII is a great game for begining players.

VIII was just my favorite for the Junction, Characters, and plot [err...Plot from 1-end of 2 ;)]

VI is wonderful. You have he wide assortment of characters, a fairly nice plot, set in medival times.

VI is wonderful. You have he wide assortment of characters, a fairly nice plot, set in medival times.FFVI is definately the best from the retro era of Final Fantasy games. FFVIII was a beautiful game, and the draw and junction systems are still very fresh and different considering the game's age. I've been playing the FFVII prequel "Crisis Core" a lot recently on the PSP and it's pretty neat for a prequel; guess i'm a bit of a FFVII junkie! :D

I'm still playing FF6 for the first time, but I'm loving it and I can see why some people might put it on their top 10 lists. The characters have more fully-fleshed out backstories than any Final Fantasy before it, and the story flows nicely, pulling you subtly from one scenario to the next. The graphics are also nice; I was surprised they could make such cool effects back then! In my opinion, it's the best of the pre-FFVII Final Fantasies; if you want to see what the series was like before #7, just play this one. 1 through 5 just don't compare.

lets see:

1. KotOR
2. DeusEx
3. GuildWars (<- all of em, since they can be merged)
4. Jade Empire
5. KotOR:TSL
6. Mahjong Titans (<- yes, the game that comes with Windows Vista)
7. there really is no number 7...or 8 to 10 for that matter...

7: Republic Commando
8: The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass

I had to think a bit, I don't play that many games. :) Possibly, Assassin's Creed will get a place in the list when I get it for PC.

I'm an old-school RPGer...so all the games that blitz my mind are RPGs...don't think I can even name off 10, tho...(I have Fable and Oblivion, but they don't make my list...instantly forgetable..)

1. Mass Effect. (Just barely edged out KotOR for number-one, but the 'OMFG!!' element took it over the edge for me...)
2. KotOR II. Yes, I actually like II better, even unfinished it's dark and murky storytelling. I dream of the day Team Gizka is finished...then it might make it back to Number 1 for me)
3. NWN - HotU
4. KotOR - especially with the Carth romance mod installed..hehehehe..
5. Jade Empire. BioWare = sublime storytelling...yet again
6. Stanglehold. Chow Yun-Fat FTW
7. Divine Divinity. A classic top-down RPG with memorable storytelling. I hear tell they're making a sequel...someday...
8. The Witcher
9. NWN2 - and only because of Mask of the Betrayer
10. Reserved for a total list shuffle - because Baldur's Gate and all the expansion packs are currently in the mail and headed my way...and someday, Dragon Age will be reality...

in no particular order

1. Star Wars Galaxies -Best star wars game (in my opinion) as it lets me play as a trandoshan and do just about whatever i want..too bad the computer i played it on died. -_-
2. Ghost Recon Series -Great tactical shooters, very realistic sounds
3. Splinter Cell Double Agent-lots of 'mini-games' and sneaking around, very cool music
4. Mysteries of the Sith (for map making, i feel old when i think of the times when i was making maps for multiplayer with my friends)
5. Morrowind/Oblivion BEST rpgs ever, love doing whatever i want and making my own path
6. Knights of the Old Republic/The Sith Lords funny as hell dark side choices
7. Descent -my first computer game i played that thing ALOT.
8. Turok Series -Gruesomeness and crazy violence. The game to get me into First Person Shooters was Turok 2: Seeds of Evil. I wasn't disappointed much by Turok Evolution
9. Halo 3 -best in the series, cooperative live rocks.
10. Call of Duty 4 -My favorite game of all time...I just started playing it about 2 weeks ago, it's hard to put it down. Action packed and no holding out on the M+ rating. good ****. :)

1. Super Mario Bros : this game made fall into the wonderful world of video games, and I still haven't beaten the "stellar' part :p
2. KOTOR I : Introduced me to HK-47, nuff said
3. Halo:Combat Evolved : the original title was better IMO, the other felt like expansion packs to me (except for the online and co-op experience of Halo 3)
4. JSRF : awesome graffiti and graphics, along with a nice story and cool characters
5. COD 4 : campaing is cool and the story feels real, nice online experience
6. Mass Effect : another good RPG, nice story and original characters, but it could have been more kickass
7. Bioshock : story was awesome (IMO) and the revelation at the end was cool, plasmids are kickass (it could have been more challenging though)
8. Doom : played it when I was 7 years old, scared the crap out of me but it introduced me to shooter games
9. Ninja Gaiden and Ninja Gaiden Black : Decapitation galore! Nice story, revived the ninjas from the shadows, "BLACK" was a nice redo of the game with new monsters and weapons, can't wait for Ninja Gaiden 2
10. Devil May Cry 4 : Dante combo FTW!
