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

Best of all time, I think I'd have to go with Planescape: Torment. The sheer amount of dialogue and the number of options available are mind-blowing. There are literally only four unavoidable fights in the game, and the final boss is NOT one of them. (There are two options I can think of offhand for defeating him without ever entering combat. Neither is what you'd call easy, however.)

Worst of all time: I am in no way able to answer this. There are some utterly terrible games out there that got published and never played. I think I've seen games get reviews in the 19/100 range on PC Gamer. Worst I ever played, however, may have been ET: The Extra-Terrestrial. Yes, my parents bought that disaster of a game for our Atari. *shudder*

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

I don't know if I would rank it as one of the best I've ever played, but I will admit to enjoying The Witcher. I know... saying it that way is damning it with faint praise.

The interface clunkiness in some of the dialogs makes it less than perfect, but it is intelligently done and not impossible to play if you have a little patience in picking up your skills. Once you accumulate enough cash to start reading books, you can start honing your skill at making potions, oils, and bombs. The game picks up as your alchemy skills pick up. It is open-ended enough that you can pick and choose the order of your quests and explore a lot. Therefore, there is at least SOME illusion of choice in the game even though your choices are a bit limited.

Of course, games of that genre are merely the next generation of adventure books, because in the end, you are just trying to experience the story being told by the authors. It is merely a new medium for experiencing the action, scenery, and intrigue of a well-written story - a medium where you see (and live through) the action rather than read it; where you see the village rather than read its description.

In the end analysis, that is what makes the adventure genre of games fun, and it is the same thing that makes a book fun. If the story is entertaining, then it is going to work its magic on you. If the story is dreck, you'll put the book down and forget about it. Look at the Harry Potter series or the Lord of the Rings - great stories despite their originally being written for a niche audience. Well, if the storyline behind the game is well-written as a piece of fiction first, it has a chance to become a really good game, just as a well-written book has the chance to become a classic. (It's getting late and I'm starting to ramble, so I'll stop here.)

Just a couple of random thoughts from a veteran gamer.

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

If I need to pick one game for PC I would say halflife.
For PS3 my favorite was Uncharted 3
