Your Personally All Time Favorite Video Game.

This topic is self explanatory. Name your own personally favorite video game.

As for me, no one can argue with this.

This probably. It kind of ruined Zelda for me since every time I picked up a different Zelda game I compared it to OoT and it didn't measure up :/

It's a hard decision. I love Chrono Trigger passionately, Fallout is amazing, and Baldur's Gate 2 is equally awesome. But I think my bid has to go to a very special lady.

Tie Between Planescape Torment and Bioshock. I like KOTOR and it's sequel(more than the original) But I think the pacing for both is abysmal.

the game i have played mroe than any other game would have to be k1 but its not my faverite, i think my faverite would be a tie between battlefront 2 for replayability since i could play 1000000 times and it would still be just as fun and maybe Fable for the story and choices you can make and how they affect your character and surroundings. The lost chapters btw

Still have yet to find a game I've played as long as, or enjoyed as much as old faithful... Morrowind is a close second.

Win. The best ever, no second thought, the God of all games, and definition of replayability.

You too?! I thought I was the only one.

Planescape: Torment; this thing stands tall as one of the few games to build emotional links between player and party and make them work. Never before and never since has a game dealt with complex themes such as identity, free will, and the inevitability of death so successfully and while Avellone’s writing can be overly wordy in places, this is the king of roleplaying plots. THE KING.

i like too many video games to list....i'll go with GRAW 2 or Oblivion. as far as a star wars video game....all time favorite would have to be KotOR 1 and 2.

for pc...Star Wars Galaxies, as that is my favorite star wars game ever.


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

If I had played more games, I would have probably went with one of the classics you all mentioned. Since I haven't, I'll have to go with KotOR 2. Yeah, you heard me!

I have lots of favorites but I just can't name one favorite. If I had to narrow it down completely, it would probably be between Bioshock and KotOR. I reeeaalllyyy want to say Bioshock though...I feel like I'm doing it a disservice by not. God I love everything about that game. The movie better not suck like Hitman.

I have favorite series..es?:

Half Life
Hitman
FEAR (though the expansions weren't exactly spectacular)
Halo
The Elder Scrolls (Really just Morrowind though)
Mass Effect unless the sequels suck

Only at the beginning. Once you get more plasmids, you'll get better ways to kill those (big) buggers. Get them in water (come on, the setting is underwater!) and use shock. Kill it with fire. Use Armor Peircing Bullets.
God, I think I just made me wanna play Bioshock again >_<

I'm terrible at FF games.

And Mass Effect, is a great, Sci Fi epic RPG. It just needs a bit of modding on the PC version.

Seriously, awesome lists of games guys! I agree with each and everyone of you!

Ohh.

Probably one of the KOTOR games.
Or Fable.
Or maybe that childhood classic Digimon game, which I never completed.
Or pokemon - all of those games were amazing! Never get old.
Or Crash Bandicoot.

I did love golden eye, but the addition eventually faded.

KOTOR moved to the top of my list, but was soon replaced by the sequel. Although the second lacked the quality of the first, the storyline was far greater.

*agrees with thread*

Seriously, there's way too many great games I like to pin it down to one single favorite game of all time! Though the game that has the most longevity and replayability in my opinion is The Sims (the first one), so I guess I'll go with that.

I usually list KotOR as my favorite game of all time, though I have several that are up there with it.

Word! Just too many to list...

One of the longest running games I have had installed, across 5 windows versions (95 to XP), and 4 computers is Total Annihilation (it is quite crash happy under Win XP ) but I still give it a whirl every few days... when I need my artillery fix.

Kotor 1&2 I don't know if it's my "All Time Favorite", but it's the only game that I've released mods for. That has to mean something. Apart from those two games, I also have very pleasant memories of Vampire: Bloodlines, Operation Flashpoint, Half-Life series, Splinter Cell 1&3, Mass Effect... yeah, really hard to name a favorite.
