My favourite is Source. It has been running on my systems(my first computer was a "buck a day" pc and it played Source). It looks good, but not great. But it has SO MANY mods and different games based on it, you can play it well with onboard graphics..

Unreal engine is probably the best though but I have no experience with it..

I'd say Frostbite, it really seems to take advantage of multicore (read quad) CPUs.

Source engine. Looking at Fakefactory HL2 mod, games in source can look very good while having good performance.
And it has good physics engine.

+ the released mod tools.

2nd best would be Unreal engine and 3rd Frostbite ( destruction thing + I can run the game on my old Pentium E2140 @ 3ghz. on low tho. )

I'd say Source, just because of the quality of games released under it. The gameplay in them far exceeds any downfalls in graphics the engine has nowadays, as it definitely shows its age now. This is more of a case of Valve being incredible, though. Source games are basically > all in terms of overall gameplay, imo.
In progress.

A game engine that is meant to be for simple games would never power a complex game, while an engine designed for a complex game might be a waste of time to use for a simple game.

I really hate it when people say, woot new CryEngine, awesome graphics -BECAUSE OF THE ENGINE- but that is not how it works, it may enable the artists to make a game that looks better, but really the game engine is a very very small percentage of game development.

While learning C++ I learned that the best thing an engine can do is to allow you to customize it to your needs.
you aware someone made a crash bandicoot game in the cryengine ?
While keeping superb graphics


BC2 engine is pretty good, but there are shortcomings. Crysis 2 was a pretty big jump from crysis 1, but not for graphics.

Cryengine gets my vote
lets see the BF3 engine and maybe i'll change my mind

Probably the Unreal Engine. The sheer number of games made for it as well as mods speak for themselves. I'm not a developer, but it really does seem that UE is by far the best engine available. Not that ad populum is a good indicator though...

Source engine sucks.

Unreal Engine 3 pretty much sold the Xbox 360 (and also caused Microsoft to change the amount of RAM the system had).

It's a versatile engine, across numerous platforms (even mobile devices) that has been utilised by countless developers, even DICE (Mirrors Edge) and has become a strong platform of which developers could get a stepping stone into the industry.

Not to mention just how long the Unreal Engine has been going for overall. It's forever evolving, forever getting better.

Definitely gets my vote over any other.

It's one of the best things to have happened to gaming development.
