Thumbs up Coolest Vid Games you have played (game system or PC)

No old school like pacman, etc... we will always have a special place for these in our hearts

1. Tribes (PC) what happened to this game? Anyone else know what I am talking about? PS3/360 this would be a huge hit.
2. Mech Warrior series (PC).. (they need to come out with this for PS3/360!!)
3. Socom Series (PS2) Headset was revolutionary
4. Command and Conquer series (PC) why hasn't this been on a game system?
5. Worms series (PC) how clever! please get this out onto a game system!
6. Gran Turismo series (PS1/PS2)
7. EA Sports NHL or MLB games (PS2) I don't really care for basketball or football
8. Medal of Honor series (PS2) the 360 version is cool as well.
9. Tie Fighter (PC)
I'm sure there is more I just can't think of anything else.

A RPG man I see... personally I think RPG are god-aweful and boring. IMO no insult intended.

They're not RPGs, they're adventure games, mostly. Playing these games is like reading a book to me.

I, OTOH, cannot see the fascination with violence, war and sports so many people seem to have...

I liked the style of Prey a lot... they really did something unique with the Doom 3 engine... only play such stuff in godmode to enjoy the graphics, though.

Gothic 2 is an Austrian game, right?

God mode is always fun, haha...who cares about strategy and "skill" when you can stand there on the hardest difficulty and get pounded by enemies and just laugh in their faces, lol

Yeah, Gothic 2 is austrain, the translations sucked, but its probobly one of the best RPGs ever made. Also, yeah prey rocked, thats up there with doom 3. The doom 3 engine is the best PC engine RELEASED to date by far. Its nothing short of amazing, its almost as great as the newer engines like crysis and U3.

xbox starwars rpg
nintendo mario brothers. Recent ones seem not as good. Must be my bias factoring in
starcraft for pc, though world of warcraft is replacing this since starcraft is over 5 yrs old

Lately haven't been playing video games, though I saw on the news that playing them improves your eyesight and hand-eye coordination.

mostly anything that's fps, but also some racing (need for speed underground). I've devolved lately into just playing killzone over and over - absolutely the worst game I've ever played, but it's all I'm playing now - I don't even play the campaigns, just the battlefields. I guess I like blowing people up and headshots....

I'm exactly the opposite of dfkt, lol.

Well I like the sports games and the racing games of course.

Toca Race Driver series (best Race Sim seen on Planet Earth, IMO)
Need for Speed series (Most Wanted & Underground are very good)
EA SPORTS:
  • FIFA series
  • NBA series
  • NHL series
GTA series (Vice City is very cool, San Andreas less)
Harry Potter series (Prisoner of Azkaban is better than the others)



and many other...can't remember...
