    Video Games

    What's everyone's favorite video game? I don't care if it is PC game or console game, or even text-based game.

    My favorite video game is The Sims...It gave me a totally new outlook on life, and it is also very addictive.

    Just the way that the game is played...I have never looked at life that way before.

    I suppose you could play the game long enough that your eyes box. That would result in some change of perspective.

    Everything has the potential to change your perspective; often it is from the most mundane human endeavors that the most important ideas originate.

    My favorite video game is (and will always be because I do not play video games anymore) Privateer. Probably out-dated, it's fun because it isn't complicated, the storyline is decent, and the action is acceptable. Second tier in every way, the combination of its mediocre elements (which are only mediocre now, not at the time of release) makes it easy to play and thereby enjoyable.
    I was born; I shall die. Between those two events there is life. I don't know why, and I don't question it; I merely live.

    I'm a pretty big fan of Age of Empires but I'd have say my favorites are Pong, Arkanoid and Pacman.

    Well I'll tell you what, Metal Gear Solid 1 & 2, has got to be one of the best games so far, at least it is to me.

    My favorite game is probably Elasto Mania, a 2d motorcycle game.

    BomberLAN .

    Honestly, I've been having fun playing street fighter alpha 2 kid from my dorm's PS2, and Return to Castle Wolfenstein on my PC is fun as well.

    All time favourite ? Probably Pirates on my old Atari ST.
    At the moment ? Civilization 3 or Counterstrike.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    I'm looking for good coop LAN games. (no decent internet down here)

    Any ideas? (Don't like deathmatch only styles like RCWolfenstein as not enough of us on the LAN)

    Have played (lately) Operation Flashpoint, Ghost Recon, Empire Earth and Serious Sam.

    Best ever?
