My alltime favorite, @ numbero uno: Yoshi's Island for The Super Nintendo. I can't wait the sequel(?) for the Game Boy Advance! Number two: Damn, I can't choose. OK, Gran Turismo 3 A-spec then for the Playstation 2. I am a car lover and the interaction you get with the game, superb! Last but not least: Zelda, Link's Awakening for the Super Nintendo (yep, I am a SNES owner/lover). Man, I just found the game in a secondhand store and after two weeks, I am still playing it. Amazing what they could put in a 1,1 MB cartridge 10 years ago.
Then the worst game ever (do you here the drums?): Tetris!
When I got my Game Boy, the game was packed in (that was a while ago, 10 years or so) and immediately I was hooked. For months I kept beating my hi-scores, but I wasn't good enough to get the BIG rocket (you get it after getting a score of 100,000 points or higher in A-mode). Then my mother saw me playing and also wanted to 'try'. In just one (1!) day, she managed to get the big one and she said: 'This is fun! Can I play more?'. Sure mom. My reputation of Tetris-master has been blasted away anyway, so, why not? I never played Tetris again. You can say I am a loser, but I now found out I didn't liked Tetris anyway, no give me something to laugh about, with colors and some real music and sounds.
Even now, ten years later, I still hear my mom playing this Hell-grown game (she always keeps the 'music', or beeps if you like, on). Thank God I have a Super Nintendo now (yes, I also have a Playstation 1/2, but for the classics I play the SNES), so I can withdraw if I hear this pathetic beeps coming out of this gray ...thing (please don't fill on the dots, that's not why I placed them, just hold the 't' against your teeth and then pronouce 'thing' and you know what I mean).
I do have a normal life besides gaming, so don't think I am a sorry piece of life.
1: Diablo II and DiabloII Lord of Destruction
2: Return to Casle Wolfenstein
3: Quake 2 and Quake 3 Arena
Honorable Mention: Duke Nuken 3D Atomic Edition (Yeah it's old, but it was fun to play. Especially with the Penthouse patch)
Ultima Online is all i can think of at the moment..that game was so friggen addictive....oh wait and the original zelda...gold version =)..ohhh and command and conquer original dos version...me and my friends played multiplayer over nullmodem for ever!..heh when i was in highschool that is
Quake is for kids, Unreal Tournament is my best, well PC game. Even though I only have an Unreal Tournament Demo, it still kicks Quake 3 Arena's @s$, even though I have the full Quake 3. Still cant wait till Unreal Tournament 2, and 2003, come out, their sure to be a hit.
WWF Smackdown 2, the best game on the PS 1(was one of the top five best selling games on PS 1), while Smackdown 3, the best on PS 2, and WWF RAW, the hottest game on Xbox besides Halo and the best on that console (Can you still call it a console). Can't wait till WWF Wrestlemania X-Eight for the Xbox latter this year, should be the best game ever on Xbox.
When you think about PC games, what about the most popular PC game around, Solitaire, thats damn good, not the best though.
I prefer games that blow you away, and are completely new. Those three are the best examples I can think of. Most other ways to evaluate games are insufficient in comparison (story - there is no such thing as a videogame with a 'good story' if you read novels; control - physics only takes you so far; graphics - well myst was pretty...). Anyway, those are my thoughts.
Worst: there have been far too many of them. Pretty much any single player fps since Half Life (we should all be tired of running around finding switches or jumping on platforms to open a door), maybe R/C Stunt Copter for ps1. I actually love that game, but it is the most incredibly frustrating experience you can have with a controller.
Looking forward to: Not much. I think ICO 2 may be in the works though.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
