Re: What's the best/worst video game of all time?

best games ever?
starcraft
diablo 1 and 2
ultima 7
world of warcraft

worst games ever?
world of warcraft (i'll explain)
D & D temple of whatever the hell it was
ultima 9

wow is both great and horrible.

It's fun up until you hit the "wall" the wall is where you're main character has achieved all you can or want to achieve with him. At that point you have a choice, same repetative grinding, or level an alt. I normally choose to level an alt.

I also like it because it's the first game my daughter really learned how to play. One day she was sitting there jumping my character around then she decided she wanted her own character, so we made her a little gnome rogue, she loved running around the starting area killing stuff.

Now she tends to play my druid, who has a non-combat pet called "The Perky Pug", because it has a puppy.

Re: What's the best/worst video game of all time?

Sim City is one of those games where you have to recognize that it is TOO good a simulation. Stuff happens to make the city incapable of surviving without urban renewal and taxes and stuff. To "win" at Sim City, you have to guide your city through maybe a hundred or even a hundred fifty years before you can say you are a success. It is far too easy to let the city take a nose dive.

The main reason I don't like Sim City is after I played it, I realized that urban planners have a really tough job and it isn't fair to gripe about the sloppy job they do.

Yeah, but that is frustrating because I can't send the real thing to certain politicians in my area who so richly deserve to be swallowed up by earthquakes.

Re: What's the best/worst video game of all time?

Got another one to add to the "worst" category. Something called "Twin Sector" which has some of the craziest physics of any simulated-physics game I've ever played. It has such a good concept but then the implementation of the "telekinetic glove" is SO clunky that you waste hours on impossible ricochets. I bought it cheap and now I know WHY it was so cheap.

Re: What's the best/worst video game of all time?

Im going to back a few year, in fact a way back - Xwing for PC, what an awesome game, I still miss that game.

Best game ever - possibly MW (CoD4), but then again Im a CoD junkie so I may be a little biased
