Alrighty, I want to know what people think is the best game ever.

Guidelines: created 1995 or later , and is for the PC

Judge based on all aspects of the game, not just graphics or realism or any one thing. Plot, gameplay, music, the whole kit and kaboodle.

Tough to name just 1. Here is a good list of some games though:

Duke Nukem 3d
Half-Life (and it's mods like Counter-Strike)
Command & Conquer Series
Battlefield 1942
Diablo 2


Those are pretty much my favorite PC games since 1995. There are a few others too but I can't think of them right now. Out of that list I'd say my top 3 are Diablo 2, Command & Conquer games, and Counter-Strike.

nb, nb at all (nb=not bad), battlefield 1942 was a good call, I'm going to add my own: Baldur's Gate II Shadows of Amn. Hours and hours of gameplay, and the plot is like reading a book without actually having to spend time reading a book. I give it two thumbs up, but I'll give you the last word, your thoughts please?

Tough choice, but I think that Tony Hawk's Pro Skater/Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2/Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3, Quake/Quake II/Quake III Arena, Half Life/CounterStrike, Sanitarium, & Hitman: Codname 47 are defintely up there, :)

Half Life, IMO original beats all mods and all other games, but then again there are a lot of great RPG I've never played.

Nomad was the greatest game of all time. Could possibly be pre-1995 though.

Found a link: http://old.the-underdogs.org/v2/game.php?id=774

Its pretty impressive that it gets 8.84 out of 10 though. Too bad it was 1993. It was essentially morrowind in space. You could trade, buy things, and travel anywhere. Join alliances, make friends and enemies. Ahh, those were the days. To be 6 years old again.

edit: Screeny. Anyone remember it yet?

edit 2: Its abandonware now. Here's a D/L link. http://www.bhlegend.com/php/download.php3?id=406&mirror=0 If you haven't played it, play it now. You will be hooked. Your votes for the best game will be changed. And you won't use any CPU or graphics power while playing it. :D

Stronghold

Though I liked the sequel Stronghold Crusader Better, it did not have as strong of story line as Stronghold did.

Stronghold has Excellent Graphics, And a Sound Score that can be downloaded as an MP3 since it was requested so much by players.

Gameplay is great, Unit Balance is fantastic. and realism can be found.

This is an RTS/Castle SIM game, And I would defiantly have to put it at the top of the list if One must consider all of the listed Criteria.


If I was to pick My Favorite game, it would be a toss up between Age of Empires 2: Age of Conquerors Expansion and Stronghold Crusader. with Honourable Mention to Half life.

Tribes 2, Tribes 2 had it all, cool story (its not dynamic though, it doesn't change over time through the game), good graphics, incredible gameplay, replayability.

Battlefield 1942 is the only game I've actually continued playing for over a year now - short and simple: it's the ****. Graphics are awesome, online gameplay is perfect. There are so many aspects to the game it's unbelievable. More FPS like BF1942 needa come out.

Its a tough call, but i have to say Half-Life with the speakers turned up and the lights turned down was a heck of a game, it really made me feel like i was there myself.

Fallout, Fallout 2, No One Lives Forever, Interstate '76, or Planescape: Torment. Honorable mention goes to Grand Prix Legends, for being the only game that I have had for 5 years and not gone more than a month without playing.
