After just finishing Thief - Deadly Shadows, I decided to compile my list of favorite ever games. My (ranking) list has 11 games that all offer more than one way of doing things. Not surprising of course that I'm posting it on this forum. So now I'm curious to see which are your favorite games. Please note that you can list 11 games, not the usual 10 (trying to be unique...just like everyone else...)

01. OFP/ArmA (2001/2006)
02. Hitman (series) (2000-2006)
03. Mafia (2003)
04. Deus Ex (2001)
05. Age of Empires/Mythology series (1998-2007)
06. Close Combat series (1997-2007)
07. Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory (2005)
08. Hidden & Dangerous 2 (2004)
09. Rainbow Six: Raven Shield (last good Red Storm game) (2003-2007 (release of planned expansion as "abandonware"))
10. Swat 3 & 4 (2000-2005)
11. Unreal Tournament 99 (with mods) (1999-2006 (Infiltration mod))

Honorary mentions:
Outlaws (western FPS by Lucas Arts), Sim City 2000, MS Flight Simulator 95 & 98 (lost interest after those), Need For Speed 5 (Porsche Unleashed), Blitzkrieg, Vietcong, Sniper Elite, Thief - Deadly Shadows, Dark Forces (Jedi Knight 1 of 1997), Ghost Recon 1, Half Life 2, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Knight Academy & Republican Commando, Commandos: Strike Force, GTA: San Andreas (if only they would remove the excessive (amount of) racing missions), Cossacks (first one mainly) and some more that I can't think of right now.

1 OFP
2 ArmA
3 Splinter Cell Chaos Theory
4 Battlefield 1942
5 Battlefield 2
6 Call of Duty 4
7 Diablo 2
8 Assassins Creed
9 Starcraft
10 Need For Speed 4
11 Swat 3

"Honorary Mentions": Need For Speed 2, 3&5, Vietcong, Mafia, Rainbow Six: Ravenshield

The fact that only two of these 17 games are less than two years old says quite a lot about the current shape of the video game industry in my humble opinion.

Honorary mentions:
Stalker, Age of Empires II&Conquerors, Sim City (Series), Need For Speed (Series), S.W.A.T. 4, Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfigther II, Nascar 98', Call of Duty (PC Series).

My "likeness" for those games are not really in order, it vary acording to my mood. Maybe I want to hop in a plane but I wouldn't play ArmA, I'd choose Il-2. Or may be I want to do something that I can't do in ArmA but can in Vietcong, and viceversa.

1. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernoybl nuke.gif
2. Mercenaries: Playground of Destruction- the single best shooter ever. Shut your mouth OFP people. (OFP had a point)
3. Halo 2
4. Evil Genius wub.gif 5. UFO Aftershock- Tremendously bad, hard and.... holy shiite i loved this game
6. Rainbow Six Vegas
7. Bioshock
8. COD2
9. Act of War- High Treason
10. COD4
11. Half-Life

The worst
1. Mercenaries 2: world in flames. I can't believe i payed it. bad controls, sh*t story, FLASHY, everything the first game wasn't. AND NO RUSSIAN MAFIA!?!?!? I can't describe how bad this game was to people who played the first one. Be smart. Buy Just Cause ( w00t.gif )
2. Halo 3- The wonder-bread. Over-refined, or no fun. LETDOWN!
3. STALKER CLEAR SKY- TERRIBLE Sequel- while not a bad game, huge letdown. blink.gif
4. ArmA (stock with no addons)

Stick to posting your own lists, I can see a bit of flaming cropping up as is the nature of people saying "what am bestest!"

Words were coming out of my fingertips faster than my thoughts could process them in my brains... My plead is for temporary insanity that was caused by permanent insanity of very, very twisted nerve cluster that's called brain matter, that's supposed to be grey but isn't, it's black and has a somewhat sarcastic and dark sense of humor, or lacks it totally.

It is only meant for PC games, I just forgot to mention that. Posting about other people's choices is fine with me, however as Jynx said it may lead to flaming, but so can pretty much everything else that you post on a forum. Also it's the moderator's problems of sorting it out if it goes bad, so I don't care naughty.gif

Yup.

Does anyone remember the first game that they ever played on their own PC? (so not at a friend or family)

I am not 100% sure, but it was either Doom, Wacky Wheels or Raptor: Call of the Shadows.
