There have been hundreds of games that I have played over the years that I have thoroughly enjoyed, but without a shadow of a doubt my favourite franchise of the lot would most definately be the Metal Solid Games. Absolutely love them, great cinematics, gameplay, bosses, storyline etc. My one thing I would like for the franchise is to have the very first game to be remade for the current gen console as the Metal Gear Solid 4 was absolutely brilliant!! :)

Probably Uncharted 2, but its insanely close between that, Killzone 3 and Marvel Ult. Alliance

Well my favourite game is Final Fantasy VII. Aside from that (and other final fantasy titles I love) It'd have to be KOTOR.

Also, if you're curious: The highest selling game is actually Wii sports (according to wikipedia anyway...)

Worth a look.

Doesn't Wii sports come with the Wii ( mine did ). It's not fair if they count that as the best selling game of all time. Back on topic Doom 3 is my all time favorite game ever.:)

WWE smackdown games but I have a wrestling bias being a WWE fan.

Would depend on the Wii bundle I imagine, but I'm not sure if it counts pre-packed games or just individual sales.

I'd have to say KotOR or Morrowind, I absolutely loved those games.

Favorite game of all time is probably GTA3. That's the game that got me started into more hard-core gaming rather than just casual play.

Honorable mention goes to the original Halo for perking my interest in FPSs and KOTOR for showing me how fun western RPGs are.

On a side note best computer game I've ever played and also the best RTS ever is Starcraft.

I'm tied between the Thief series and Final Fantasy VII.

Dead Space and Bioshock games for me. No other series of games has had me totally immersed in the storylines as well as the gameplay!

Barbie Island Princess Vacation... Hands down...

Wait, it's March 30th :/ Too soon...

Anyways, in my opinion, I really enjoy all Zelda games. It is a competition between A Link to the Past and Ocarina of Time. Additionally, Super Mario 64 was also a very fantastic game.

As for specific genres:

FPS
1. Goldeneye
2. Counterstrike

RPG
1. FFVII
2. KotOR

Simulation
1. Sim City 2000

RTS
1. StarCraft

Current Generation
1. Bioshock
2. Uncharted 2

Ultima Online: Lord Blackthorns Revenge.

I still haven't played another game that gave me as much enjoyment as UO did.

That is pretty tough question I might have to go with Uncharted 2 since I loved that game! Otherwise it would have to be Mass Effect 2!

I have to go with Command & Conquer. I had many hours of fun with that. I love it so much I still have my old DOS copy, Windows 95 Copy and The First Decade versions of it. Man the graphic jump from DOS to 95 was a big one back in the day.

I agree with you, ManU, MGS need a HD remake!

1. Heroes of Might & Magic 4 (even though it still had many flaws)
2. Age of Empires 2
3. Warcraft 3
4. Disciples 2
5. Baldurs Gate 2

Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn, or Knights of the Old Republic. No other game can compete with these two games. They are just too great games.

IMO: Chrono Trigger for the SNES. I don't even know the countless hours I have (and still do) put into that game. Square Enix needs to do an updated version of it.

Some good choices there folks. My personal favourite is Shenmue, I thought it was fantastic. I loved the story, the music, the fact you could go into an arcade and play the games I could list hundreds or reasons.

I think that too. It is regarded as the biggest seller, but if the vast majority didn't specifically buy it I reckon it shouldn't count.


Final Fantasy X is my favourite game ever. It may not have been revolutionary, but it's the most beautiful game I've played with the finest turn based combat system. Got so much love for the characters, story and soundtrack.

For me it would be Monkey Island 2 or Transport Tycoon Deluxe. Love both of them! And Quake if we talk FPS.

They counted Wii sales as Wii sports sales because it came with every Wii. No way would it of sold that much on its own.

Gotta agree with him about Starcraft.

Surprised no one has mentioned the Diablo series (soon to be trilogy!). Out of all the games I own and have played, none match up against Diablo, Diablo 2 and D2: Lord of Destruction for hours invested.

Sid Meier's Civilazation series. Alpha Centauri was really good too.

Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

BioShock, Fallout, and Halo 2 are runners-up.

I'd have to say either of the 2 gow games, God of War or Gears of War. Both immense fun to play, and I got really into both storylines, actually tried to read some of the Gears of War books even though I haven't read an entire book in maybe 6 years.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas! :D

I agree with you on that. My vote also goes towards the Uncharted and Fallout series.

This is going to sound gay but Red Dead Redemption. Amazing story line and semi challenging achievements. And i hate playing the typical rockstar GTA games

I did like sabatour

Final Fantasy 3 for me.

More recently, I don't know what's the best made, but Dead Space is my favorite.
