    Games: The best and the worst!

    Alright I thought that since there are so many new and great games out I would start this thread and see what people like the most so from best to worst...

    1] Warcraft III
    2]Half-life(The whole series )
    3]DoD Mod for Half-life(Yes it does deserve it's own number)

    Now for the worst ones...

    1]The Sims and all things related to it like the sequals

    WHAT ABOUT COUNTER-STRIKE?? ARE YOU MAD?? Counter-Strike has been the most popular multiplayer game ever, but its nice to have broadband and get good pings on it

    Best

    1] Elite (through rose-tinted specs)
    2] Virtua Fighter 2 (for the amount of time spent playing)
    3] Some online multiplayer (to pass the time)

    Worst

    1] Most games (that I play for about an hour at most and never look at again)

    1] Warcraft 3
    2] Medal Of Honor: Allied Assault
    3] Return to Castle Wolfenstein
    4] Counter-Strike

    Worst? I don't know... I don't really pay attention to them.
    Can't wait for Battlefield 1943... that game is going to own everything.

    oh, this is how its gonna be, eh?

    1] Counter-Strike
    2] Red Alert 2
    3] Starcraft - old, but still good

    Worst -- freedom force. I liked the idea, but they spend too much time on graphics and not enough time on gameplay. I do admit its fun to pick up cars, telephone boxes, poles, etc and whack not only criminals, but by-standers too

    Oh, and that game 'Alice'...*shivers*. The designer of that game must have done a few cones before he did it...

    Spiderman sucked too. I liked the Mega-Drive spider man game better than the new PC one

    I hate online RPGs... and shoot 'em up games too for that matter. Not that I play games much anyway.

    The best in my book are the classics:
    Chuckie Egg(DOS)
    Pacman(DOS)
    Pong(DOS)
    Super Mario Bros. (SNES) *
    Duck Hunt (NES)*
    Sim City(Windows)
    Lemmings (Windows)
    Worms(Windows)

    The worst:
    RPGs/shoot 'em ups. Funny that.

    *Sorry about these two.

    I've never played on anything other than the SNES and the SNES emulator. The 3D version does looks pretty crap though.

    The original Super Mario Kart was good too.. before the N64 released the 3D version.

    Anything Final Fantasy. Final Fantasy 1-7 (after that the series gets not so good). FF6 is the greatest. Diablo 2 is really good as well, if only I had the energy to play my Amazon instead of coding. Baldur's Gate games are pretty good, lame character models though. NWN is incredible, pure and simple genius. And there is always Simcity 2000

    I am sorry I totally forgot Counter Strike(haven't played in awhile ) And Starcraft is another one I haven't done for a bit but it RULES!!

    As for RPG's they rule, I loved Morrowind and I also like shooter games like Halo, that kicked ass.

    playing Civ2 from the time I got home from school until it was time to start getting ready for school again were the days...ahh the great times. i swear i would play civ2 at least for 10 hours a day for the first month i had it. i was OBSESSED

    then again playing extremely competitive Madden games against my brother every year on the whole series were fun as well. madden 2000/2001 were the best two years in terms of the competition. i have no idea how my controlers never broke during those two years.

    the only two games i've really been playin as of late are:

    halo
    world series baseball

    i've been especially playing wsb.

    oh yeah and ken griffery jr. baseball for the 64 was a great game too. same with a whole bunch of other games.

    best racing game ever = tog gear 2 (for the snes)

    and sim city (for the snes) was great too
    and mario bros (for the snes and 64) are awesome
    nba live 95 was the best basketball game ever
    street fighter 1 & 2 (for the snes)

    btw civ3 sucked a@@ compared to civ2 in my opinion. the only better thing about civ3 is the go-to algorithm and that's about it.
