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

In context, a lot of the ID games were trend-setters when they first came out. Even Wolfenstein was awesome in its day. Doom was great. Quake was good. From other software houses, Unreal and Half-Life were good. I've played some awesome games. Right now I'm working my way through something that is better than any of them, though, and in a different way.

Morrowind: The Elder Scrolls III is an FPS/3PS in style, hack-and-zap (sword and sorcery) in genre, but it actually has a wide-open plot with some serious mysteries and a long, sequential, multi-step quest in a huge world. Better than some of the older D&D computer games in that it is more literate and has greater freedom of movement, freedom of choice, and optional side-quests.

Doom, Unreal, Half-life? Great games but no serious plot. Hunt and shoot. Frag the little critters. With Morrowind, you get to frag rats and some wierd beasties, plus if you get to the northern island, you get wolves and bears. But it makes you think! The fighting challenge is there, but the brain challenge is better.

Worst game? Freedom Force. Gets nowhere fast. Too easy to die, too hard even on EASY settings to just flat out screw up. Past a certain point, it is a matter of "Who cares?" I liked Myst and its follow-ons but the copy-cats weren't good at all. Like Physicus, for example. And Rhem is another that comes to mind.

In that dreaded category of games you love to hate/hate to love? Sim City 2, 3, or 4.

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

I only play online games, so my favorite is definitely

DooM II !

Still being played hardcore by a bunch of people

Quakeworld, Quake3 CPMA, X-Wing vs Tie Fighter, WarCraft 2, all receive honorable mention from me.

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

I have to agree that Red Alert 3 and Left 4 Dead are really cool games. I'm really getting hooked to Left 4 Dead lately.

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

Just got back into gaming after a 2 - 3 year sabbatical, Had my 360 for 6 weeks now & can't get enough!!!!!

I virtually have to be set on fire to relinquish the controller and go to bed!

Old School Best:

Roland on the Ropes - Amstrad CPC 464
Oh Mummy - Amstrad CPC 464

Sonic - Mega Drive
Eswat - Mega Drive
Strider - Mega Drive

Super Mario - SNES
Zelda - SNES
Sreet fighter 2 - SNES

C&C - PC

Old school worst:

Streets of Rage - Mega drive, Only game shipped with my friends new mega drive when first released, we completed it within 3 hours!!!! Gutted


New Best

GTA series - Play the most recent now on 360 - online is addictive, better than Gears 2 which i find a little to serious and up tight. Cant get enough of mowing down opponents with an SMG while driving at them in what ever vehicle ive just jacked

NFS series - Most Wanted being the best by far

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

Just to chime in!

My favs are

Morrowind III: Elderscrolls (I think this is the title) I like the fourth one for the 360 but it doesn't compare to the one before it.

Original 4 mario games for the NES and SNES, also for the NES is a fantastic game called Blastermaster.

ZELDA -Original NES game. AWESOME!!!

I agrre with what some of you said, Diablo, Neverwinter Nights. AND the Mist games are awesome.

Gosh, I could go on and on. Oh, yeah, I do have one online game weakness. Mostly younger kids play it, but for some reason I am totally addicted. RUNESCAPE. It also gives me a way to connect with the teens I work with.

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

Best:
Zelda OOT

Most hours logged:
World of Warcraft

Also spent a lot of time playing Runescape with my son but that was while I was out of town a lot and before we discovered WoW.

I totally enjoyed many of the games on C64 back in the day. Many were simple but very fun. I also have a weakness for the puzzle type games (Tetris, Mine Sweeper, card games, etc.). I've spent a lot of time with the Total War series and enjoyed them quite a bit. Also liked the Banjo Kazooie series.

Worst:
Who cares? I don't play it.

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

If I ever played WoW my real life would end.... So I have never played it. lol. Those puzzle type games are really addicting, plus you feel kinda good because you're working your mind some.

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

Yeah, something like that.

What's really pathetic is that you can now get 3rd party add ons for WoW so you can play puzzle games while you're playing WoW. My son does this ALL the time and his party members have to get on to him for not paying attention to the game ("are you playing Bejewelled again?").

For the record: I was playing WoW until 2 AM this morning (don't tell my wife). It can be a bit addictive.

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

LOL, I have heard of many marriages being strained due to WoW. The trick is to get your spouse addicted to gaming as well, which worked for one of my friends. Then they don't bug you as much.

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

I tried that with her recently. She complained that I never suggested anything we could do together. So I asked her the following week to play WoW with me. It didn't go as well as I had hoped.
