post #451 of 495
Lol, are you old enough to have played the original Metal Gear?

I still have dreams of that alarm sound and music whenever you were spotted...

Half Life series.

Dat soundtrack, excellent scifi story line, of course some fps action, runs on pretty much any hardware, epic cliffhanger (lol this should be a con), spun off several other popular games.

when i think of more reasons ill update this post.

Also Chrono Trigger

was the first RPG to have multiple endings, epic Scifi action, epic epicness.. just play it if you are an RPG fan.

I'm not very articulate so I will just say Half Life. Why? It made FPS shooters what they are today. Even though we are still waiting for EP3/HL3 it's still one of the most popular games today.
It's modding community is one of, if not the biggest out there. There are so many great mods that have spawned from Half Life. To name a few, Counter Strike & Garrys Mod!

Half Life forever!

You're insulting Half-Life. FPS games today are awful, casual, short, lacking of substance, repetitive, and focused on multiplayer. Half-Life was truly innovative but unfortunately most shooters don't follow the example.

My favorite game of all time is Dark Souls closely followed by Demon Souls. I also love the Crysis series.
Can't wait to go pick up a copy of Crysis 3 biggrin.gif

I'm not sure if anybody has even mentioned it yet, but Metal Gear Solid I would put down as the Game of All Time. Play it, and it will speak for itself. The best graphics bar-none on the Playstation 1. It is still the only game from that era that I play on a regular basis. One of the most engaging stories, with great characters, and absolutely fun game play. To this day, it is still the only game I don't have any complaints about, except maybe Metal Gear Solid 4, which is a perfect ending to the series.

You do have a good point there my friend...

I believe for myself the best game is one that can entertain me years down the road. A game that I may play for a period of time upon first purchase but one that I always come back to periodically. Of course this means what I believe the "best game" is could change.

If I was to give a title though I would say GTA 4 (PS3), as this is a game I regularly come back back to play. Of course this will change when GTA 5 comes out smile.gif
