    Civilization 1/2 - both are INCREDIBLY addictive. I have played these for hours on end. I have not played 3...but I must get it very soon...i am yearning for that game. This is a must have for everybody.
    I know that quite a few people who enjoyed the previous Civ games, myself included, don't particularly like Civ3. Then again there are obviously many many others who do like Civ3. Btw, Civ3: Play the Wolrd (the expansion pack for the game) is going to be coming out this fall.

    No prob Kyle maybe it was just being odd that one time...whatever. And I know what you mean about not complaining about free bandwidth . I just hate pop ups but I know that it isn't your fault so it doesn't matter.

    I'm sorry SilentStrike, but Quake 3 should rank
    higher than Unreal Tournament. Common mistake;
    no need to feel ashamed...

    Here are mine:

    PC:
    1.Tribes.
    2.Return to Castle Wolfenstein
    3.Warcraft III

    Console:
    1.Xenogears.
    2.Twisted Metal: Black
    3.Eternal Darkness
    4.Resident Evil: Gamecube.

    -Ancient Dungeons Of Mistery (ADOM)
    -Liero

    SNES
    -Chrono Trigger*
    -Killer Instinct

    ARCADE
    -Xmen Children Of The Atom

    *FOR GOD'S SAKE!! How is it that i'm the first one to mention CHRONO TRIGGER!! That's beyond the slightest shadow of a doubt THE BEST RPG for SNES.

    God damn! I cannot even come close to winning in Civ3, it's on the easiest setting too! I was good at Civ1, but this one I can't frigging grasp. I just finished playing a game... and getting crushed by the COMPUTER over and over again... frustrating.

    D-C, you oughta go back to Civ2. Tonight I just played my first game of it since last summer, and it has been so much more fun than Civ3 ever was for me. Playing the game I realize that there are so many poor game decisions with Civ3. Civ2 is the best game ever, and I dare someone to prove otherwise!

    I played them all.. civ, civ2, ctp, ctp2, civ3. Civ3 is the best. Control zones, influence, good AI, good alliances & politics... not to mention cultural influence. Civ3 rox ! I haven't won a game on the third level yet, but I don't have time for playing really...

    Thing about civ 3 is the worker AI is poor, once you have a reasonably big civilisation and generate polution all 500 of your workers walk towards the same patch of polution and so all them end up continually crossing the screen, grrrr.

    uhm, I beg to differ. The A.I. never sends more than 2 workers to do the same task. This can be annoying, too, but it's not that bad.

    Oh hmmm, maybe my version is bugged, all my workers get sent to the same place.
