S.T.A.L.K.E.R.??? This is without any question the WORST game I've ever played...how can opinions vary so much?

Best PC Game: Far Cry...it was so far ahead of it's time...

But the game I have the most time in would be the Gran Turismo series. It's a love hate thing, either you love GT or you hate it and want to play something more "arcadey". Don't get me wrong, I love arcade style racers, but my heart lies with the Gran Turismo series...

I gotta say I fell in love with the Earth 2150, was a great game for lans and had quite the campaign

streets of sim city was an interesting game too and speaking of Maxis games, marble drop was also a good little past time game

I like games for various reasons. These stick out in my mind:

Replay: Chrono Trigger
Soundtrack: Chrono Trigger (followed by Halo 3)
Sports game: Triple Play 2000 (HR derby targets FTW)
Platformer: Super Mario World (I did all 96 exits multiple times)
Silly, mindless thumbstick pushing: Beautiful Katamari (rolling up the solar system was massive fun)
Plot: BioShock (not finished, but gotten through the major plot twist)
Overall mythos: Halo series

Slightly unusual categories, but it's hard to pinpoint favorites based on other criteria, at least for me (e.g., as seen above, I often like FPSes for reasons unrelated to their nature as "shooters")

Metal Gear Solid [series] for sure. I carry such great memories with those games, and the emotion is incredible. Just hearing the orchestrated theme is enough to reduce any man to tears. ;)

Tribes. The pure fun, and intensity I played with over the span of several years, has not been even close to matched by any game. And it is multiplayer only.

Calling Stalker the worst game ever, is pretty silly. Shaq Fu, Superman 64, Trespasser, E.T., etc. are all much, much, much worse than Stalker. Stalker is a very good game, and you're in the vast minority if you think otherwise.

The youngins dont know anyting about the greatness of system shock 2

its amazing when i see DUES EX mentioned when it was a direct rip off of SS2
I just had to respond to this. :rolleyes:

Deus Ex and System Shock 2 had virtually nothing in common aside from the cybernetic upgrades. The storylines couldn't have been more different. SS2 takes place in a single, enclosed environment for 95% of the game. DE spans the globe. The gameplay was vastly different, as was the combat. Interaction with other characters was nonexistent in SS2 except for Shodan whereas JC Denton dealt with allies and adversaries throughout DE. DE had 3 different possible endings...

I could go on, but this thread really isn't the place. I loved both games and consider each a first ballot hall of famer. To claim DE is a direct rip-off of SS2 just doesn't make any sense to me. You want to see a direct rip off of SS2? Look no further than BioShock.

I am going to half to say Half Life without a doubt, it was my first game that really got me heavily into PC gaming and i was addicted to it for about 6-8yrs after its release.

I just finished COD4, and i must say its not as close as HL was on my list but its definitely #2, after that i would say its FF7 then COD4

Not to mention I really didnt even care for deus ex but really liked ss2, that should show how different they are, they just had a simlar (same?) game engine, lots of games do.

Couldn't say, I find questions like this impossible to answer. Played so many games over the years that I've lost track. You could ask me what my favourite game of all time is today and it'll change by tomorrow.

It'll probably be a C64 game or an Amiga game though, back in the days of innovation and creativity.

i'm such an off-and-on gamer that i end up missing a lot of really good games. But the last game i really liked was Max Payne. Before that, i was (and still am!) a big Zelda OOT fan. Super Mario World was probably my favorite game before that.
