What's Your Favorite Video Game?

Hey everybody,

I recently caught a few ads on Spike TV for their upcoming Video Game Awards (it airs Dec. 14th but I'm not sure what time, check out their website if you want) and thought to start this thread to see who everyone thinks should win the award for game of the year. Maybe we could tally up the replies here and then compare them to which game actually wins that night? It might be cool too to send these results to Spike TV after we're done, especially if our favorites aren't on their list. So I'm going to dig around and try to find a way to contact them too.

Here's this year's choices from Spike's website (if you don't agree, just put down your favorite):

Burnout 3: Takedown (Electronic Arts)
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (Rockstar Games)
Half-Life 2 (Vivendi Universal Games)
Halo 2 (Microsoft Game Studios)
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater (Konami)

Also, what's your all-time favorite? (I'm predicting Super Mario Brothers and CS will top the list here.)

Thanks everyone and I'll keep you posted on who wins in case you won't catch it.

Jason

Favorite ever would either be Outcast or Little Big Adventure2.

At the moment I'm really enjoying the original Unreal for the millionth time, and of course Half Life2!

Good choices Darek.

Though I would disagree with DMC. It was a bit too short and the puzzles were teH lame. It was still cool though.

Devil May Cry I liked purely for the action. I still play it sometimes. Although, I am stuck on the hardest difficulty mode, Dante Must Die.... fucking impossible, especially since even a basic monster can kill you with like one blow. Crazy...

Oh god. Someone registered just in order to post an off-topic thread. Why don't you close it?

Hmm, I haven't played a lot of new games this year. It seems that for the awards they just chose the big name releases of the past couple months, not very representative. But as for an all time favorite I'd have to say Super Mario World. It was my first game and I still play it from time to time, even though I've long since gotten all the coins and whatnot. I still try to regain the mythical white yoshi that I had so long ago...

Misleading thread title. I think he meant favourite game that has come out this year.

As the most recent game I have is from about 2000, I can't answer.
