Panzer General II

Nomination: FLASHBACK, Snes, Megadrive,PC









Because remember it as the toughest game I beat as a kid, I was about 10 so not sure if the game or my age. Point is never got bored of playing it and dying and beat it in the end. Way ahead of it's time in my opinion. thumb.gifthumb.gif

Super Metroid, no contest. The original Metroid was a niche game, to be sure, it was free range, but lacked a map, had tight but uncomfortable controls and non dynamic linear gameply. It was replayable but not enthralling. Super Metroid, on the other hand was a completely different story, tight smooth controls, a functional map system, free roaming non linear gameplay, huge dynamics in the control scheme and the replayability of coccaine. The story line was impressive but unobtrusive and left something for both serious and casual players to enjoy - anybody could pick up this game and play it for hours on end. I still play through it around once every 5 months. Its that good. Really, go play it now.

I was actually pretty torn between Super Metroid and Megaman X4 but Megaman X4 was pretty niche and the storyline was obtrusive, the gameplay was super dynamic but strictly linear.

Also, why is it that all of the choices in the thread seem to be modern shooters? These would be some of the lowest titles on my list of top games, in all honesty, and I play shooters religiously.

Rogue. Then nethack. Endless replayability, complexity, innovation. It spawned a whole genre, and I have seen a couple of games in this thread that fall under it. There is nothing I can actually bash the game for, other than being one of the most frustrating games I have ever played. Dice rolls FTW!

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time biggrin.gif
post #197 of 495
I could never say there was one game that was the best, because there were a select few that i still remember to this day, that none compare to. They not only let me remember the great times i had, but they also set such a high standard that i find it very hard to enjoy the games out nowadays.

The games that i still love to this day would have to be

Console:
Ratchet and clank (Ps1/2), the ps3 versions suck
Ace Combat (Ps1/2), Xbox360/ps3 versions suck

Handheld:
Pokemon (1st Gen was the best, but 2nd and 3rd were pretty good as well)

Pc:
Command n Conquer (red alert and generals)
Call of duty 2
Unreal Tournament 2004
Half-life 2
Mass Effect



There are still a bunch of games that i had a great time playing, but they never really did compare in the long run to these.

I don't really have a favorite game of all time but right off the top of my head I will say Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater is way up there (same with the first).

Starcraft 2, Rome Total War, The Witcher games, SOCOM 1 & 2 ...gosh I at least need to sort it by genre.

I have to say, at the risk of being burned at the stake, my most favorite game is Final Fantasy X.

The reason why is how much I connected with Tidus's opinions on Spira's traditions of defeating Sin. Also those cutscenes are still amazing. biggrin.gif

Super Metroid was awesome, but climbing those GIANT shafts with the tiny platforms got REALLY annoying.
