YOUR top games

Im sure you guys all have a favourite game list
Im also sure the letters L B and A will be in the top top 10

This is mine (not ranked, coz that is soooo difficult)
LBA 1/2: do I need further explanation??
X-Com, UFO Enemy Unknown: this Strategy game has held me behind my pc for days, too bad Alliance never came through
Aliens Versus Predator 1/2: as a fan of the movies and as a gamer, I must say this is a damn good FPS
Star Crusader: I never had so many space sims, but this ol game was pretty fantastic -> non-linear storyline (pretty amazing back then), super grafix and a great story
Tiberian Sun: What can i say, Im a strategist
Outcast: I bet you guys know this game, and it's freakin cool
Black n White: thhough it was overhyped, the game still had a cool gameplay (damn pc format deleted my creature, so i dont play it anymore nowadays;()
Zelda: This adventure game really kicks ass, though it was only for a console, it is a adventure gamer must have (just like LBA and Outcast)
Monkey Island: ahh the good ol point and click games, i miss them. SamnMax was cool too ( i heard of a SamnMax2)

These are just a few of my favourite games, do you have more? Post them

Dude, one thing, please if you have something to say, try to say it all in one post. The mods of this board don't seem to look upon double posting well, but quad?? Whoa....

Oh, and my fav games would have to be Mario (NES), Super Smash Bros (N64), Starcraft (PC), and Marvel Vs. Capcom (Arcade).

well sorry, but i haven't been on the board 4 a while.
And those 4 posts are not really related to each other, so stuffing them into 1 post would be rather confusing

Btw, Super Smash Bros is a fantastic game
bet you can't beat me

1. Relentless (unbeatable...in my view, god of all the games)
2. Deus Ex (in my opinion, this game was so impressive it almost beat LBA1 on my list)
3. The Longest Journey (After finishing it, this game kicked all of the Lucas Art adventure games' asses)
4. Skies of Arcadia (probably the only non-real time RPG that amazed me...reminded me a lot of LBA)
5. Torment: Planescape (unbelievable story line)

Before all was lost, a hero with
the Mana Sword smashed the fortress...
Though the civilization had been destroyed
the world was peaceful again.

The Longest Journey is very cool! It's hard though. And flaky. It only works properly with DirectSound on 50% of systems (on mine, it is all choppy ).

Black Spider: UFO and XCOM but not TFTD?

- LBA 1 (I'm still looking for a game who can beat that feeling
- Terranigma (came VERY close)
- Planescape: Torment (brilliant story and better than Baldur's Gate 2)
- Deus Ex (impressive is still to 'weak' to describe this game)

shared positions:
-Unreal (that athmospheer!) and Chrono Trigger (has nearly all elements I like)
-Starcraft (I doubt that needs explaination) but also Red Alert (kept me bussy for ages)

Hmm, a Super Smash Brothers challange? Fine with me, if you have the time to fly to Canada. =) Oh, I forgot to mention before, my two favorite releases of this year (well, 2001, but its only January) are GT3 and GTA3 (PS2). Amazing graphics, playability and just fun.

Not in order:
  • Little Big Adventure 1
  • Little Big Adventure 2
  • Outcast, they really succeeded in having a good story without it being too lineair, with many ways to play it.
  • Final Fantasy VII
  • No One Lives Forever

Damn, you alche, how did you mannish to lay your hands on Chrono Cross (was never reliesed in Europe )

Terranigma is a very good Snes action RPG (simular to Zelda but with more action), I'm sure you'll find the rom very easily
Unfortuantly I can't say to much of it, it would ruin it

Bah, and how could I forget to add Blade Runner to my top games?!

Atre >> I found it on a swedish website for $60.

Bah, Blade Runner. I got it but I don't find any pleasure in playing it. My ending sequnce when I finnished the game was that the hero noticed a paper dog in the gutter and picked it up. I mean, that was like a 5 sec ending. Is that the reward after finnishing that game?

OMG DUDE YOU LIKE THE SAME GAMES AS ME!!!!!!

I was gonna put:
LBA, LBA2, Another World, X-Com: UFO: Enemy Unknown, Fury of the Furries, Zelda, Jet Set Radio, Bust-a-move

it's great to see another X-COM fan here!
i know a guy that worked on it, he gave me free copies of UFO: EU
and TFTD. i now have X-com apocalypse, x-com interceptor and Em@il X-com.

Sam 'n' Max hit the road is great, isn't it?

Outcast: i played the demo, my pc wasn't really good enough to play it but it was an excellent game.

Zelda: Fred's favourite game. need i say more?

EDIT: Kieron, TFTD sucks compared to UFO: EU. i have all the x-com games and the first is still my favourite.
