What do YOU think is the best game of ALL TIME and why? - Page 17

post #161 of 495
Perfect Dark 64 is one of them. The single-player and co-op missions were great, and there were interesting things you could do from exploring the main facility in between missions. The level of customizability in multiplayer was lightyears ahead of its time, and still remains ahead of most games released today. The number and novelty of weapons was also the best I've ever seen (every weapon, including unarmed, had a second "mode").

There were also interesting game modes, such as one where one player is playing the mission as usual, and the other player gets to take control of a nearby enemy soldier. Each time the other player dies, he gains control of another enemy soldier. Very cool.

If not the best game, certainly in the top 3 of under-recognized and under-appreciated.

Bioshock, the atmosphere and story of the game was just perfect.

This game for me really pushed the technical boundaries of my system. I also thought the storyline and music were really complex.

Best game of all time for me was Starcraft with Brood War. The cutscenes were great, music was spectacular, and the gameplay mechanics were just so well thought out.

Shenmue - Sega Dreamcast - Way ahead of it's time. This was out when the PS1 was the dominant force. Blew me away. Art, I would describe it as.
FFVII - Sony Playstation - Story and the materia system. Best Final Fantasy game ever.

Zelda - Ocarina of time - Nintendo 64. Just great gameplay.

That was a great game. I felt that they blew the ending though.

Yeah I get that, the final boss fight was waaaaay to easy.

I should probably try and finish Bioshock 2. tongue.gif

hmmmmm

This is tough

Fighting Games and RPG's dominated my Console life.

Fighting Games,

Marvel Super Heros. The Chaos Gem's Thanos, Phylock was my God Class, Won many tourny's with her and plenty of cash along with those win =) and I was only 12 - My other top class was the obvious Wolverine. My play style with Psylock and Wolvy involved lots of feints dashes forward with quick dashes back to throw people off their own rythm.

The game itself was a Step Up from X-Men Children of the Atom, which in its self was great, but Combo system was less involved and only Cyclops and Wolverine really dominated the game combo wise. I of course am a Huge fan of just about Every Single Vs series that came after them. But I was unformately NOT as successful in the arcades with the newer ones =/

Tekken 1, and Tekken2, Cannot begin to tell you how many hours I spent on this game , Bought it Day one with my PS1 reserved =)
I was first out of my Group of Friends to really own in the game,
best Characters, June, I had an Infinite Combo that annoyed everyone.
Jackie Chan (I cant remember his name!!) I was the only one of my friends that truly understood how to play him, Lots of Feints, lots of tricks and great combos, and I was the only one who could get his Super move timed properly lol
YoshiMitsu, I was deadly with him, often using the suicide move to win.


RPG's.

How can i not start without Chrono Trigger? First RPG I ever played, I was terrible at it firs ttime around. As I played I learned to Love it more and more. What a story, so fun going through time, awesome characters, and the X Slash deal whrere you can do double and tripple moves combined with various team mates, EXCELLENT! And greatest of all? Akira Toriyama had a hand in the characters!

Suikoden 2 , What Can I say, Tons of Tons of characters to unlock for your party, 6 People in party at once tons of Combo Attacks with various groups of Players in yoru party kept things interesting. The Large Scale Battles were cool and I certianly enjoyed the whole Rock paper Scissors 1 on 1's etc. I remember Locking myself in the house for a portion of the summer playing this game like a fiend.


But the Most Enduring game I have ever played, Never got bored of, and Never looked to replace,

Day of Defeat for PC. Started in the Alphas as I did with every single mod made back then for Half Life (Im also a LONG Time Player of Team Fortress, Team Fortress Classic) and played since early 2000 until Source came out and DoD Source was in beta somewhere after 2004 If I recall. Been playing that ever since to this day. It helps that Im with a Guild called [Beer-Count] and our server is designed for Aholes like me to exist where I can say and do pretty much whatever I want, Just Dont Move the Piano in Ava, and dont talk Politics, Speak English and your good.

So my Bets game ever has to be DoD for pure replayability. It just never got old =)
