Another question for y'all - what is your favorite game of all time? It could be because of the story in the game, the game you played with friends, or you're just really good at, anything!
My favorite game of all time would be Diablo 3 - perhaps controversial, but it keeps pulling me back, and I have countless hours playing it. Mostly because it requires a lot of effort to make small gains, but it's fun all the while playing it.
Looking forward to y'alls reply!
I've played many games over the years. So, this is kind of hard
But the game I pick is Half-Life 1
It just felt like such a large jump in how the enemies would react to your character at the time. As well as the many other good things about the game.
Game's are like my taste of music .. depending on the mood .. I like different styles from Classical to 60's rock to rap .. or maybe some Jazz ..
I cut my teeth on the first PC Tomb Raider (triangle boobs) game and have enjoyed the franchise over the years .. PC and Console
Online with dial up years ago .. I had a blast with Monster Truck Madness 2
Playing Half Life when it first came out was a real game changer
I have never been beaten at SNES Super Tennis by anybody else .. some really great matches in my college dorm
N64 Golden Eye still holds up
I've had a blast with all split screen couch coop shooter games on the XBox 360 and XBox One playing with my wife
..and right now .. Hunt:Showdown on PC has me captivated with over 4k hours played
It's hard to have just one favorite ..
"Game's are like my taste of music .. depending on the mood .. I like different styles from Classical to 60's rock to rap .. or maybe some Jazz" This is very true and how I find my self choosing a game to play.
My main 3 ever is what I call the Trinity :
1. Mass Effect 3 (the beliefs, the characters, the SF, the gatherer danger)
2. The Witcher 3 (the profundity, the characters, the world)
3. Warcraft 3 (the legend, the world, the sentimentality, the web-based custom guides)
Then, at that point, Dying Light (best Zombie game ever), Gruntz (sentimentality hits hard), and Borderlands 2. Practically just PC games on the grounds that my main control center was the PS1, the Gamecube, and the N64. For these ones, I'd say Rayman 1, Crash Bandicoot 3, SSBM, Spyro 2, and Mario Kart Double Dash.
Probably these are: Nox (2000 release), Diablo all parts, warcraft 2. Half life all parts and episodes, rising kingdoms, heroes of might and magic 3 and add-ons, starcraft 1-2 and add-ons, Sacred 1-2, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. all parts (thanks to modders so far the game is livelier than all the living)
Such a loaded question lol. 😂 Seeing such good games mentioned. My personal favorite....that's so tough because I've played so many good ones.
I think I'll go with Resident Evil 4. I've just had the most fun playing it over any other game and have completed it so many times. Aside from that, The Sims comes in at a close second because of the endless gameplay.
This is a difficult one for sure!
I don't think I could have an overall favourite game, but I have three games that are of importance to me for varying reasons.
1) Counter-Strike 1.6
- This was the game that really started it all off for me in terms of gaming as a passion and gaming as a social item. I still vividly remember the first time I ever played it. My best friend brought me to a hole-in-the-wall internet cafe and introduced me to CS. From then on, for a few years, we would visit different internet/gaming cafes on the weekends for hours and hours and play CS and eventually other games. Man, I miss the days of internet/gaming cafes.
2) Perfect Dark for the N64
- This was one of the first games I ever played through to completion and repeated. It was a challenging game for me, and one that I got really excited about picking up and playing. When I finally beat it, I can recall the sense of accomplishment that it gave me. The thing is, I don't want to go back and play it again - because I'm afraid of changing the fantastic memories of it.
3) Silkroad Online
- This was the first true MMO that I played, and boy did I play it. I became enthraled in this game for a number of years and would go on to lead guilds and server alliances. I became friends with one of the GMs and worked on PTR testing before PTRs really became a thing. I had so much fun in this game, made so many friends and built a huge community - of which, some people I still keep in contact. The game itself unfortunately has met its ruin (although still active) through rampant botting and lack of response from the Game Devs. However, if you look for private servers, there are many out there with great communities.
All time, probably StarCraft.
But really, there are plenty of games I'd call my favorite at one time or another! Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat series, Marvel Vs Capcom, Thief, Need for Speed, Mario Kart, Contra, Ninja Gaiden
NR2003 racing. The reason I started building serious machines. Microsoft wheel and pedals were gold in those days but I bought them. Enjoyed thousands of hours and several years of competitive racing.
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater would be my all-time favorite.
I tend to like Space Games and played many of them during the 90's, such as Star Wars Tie Fighter and Wing Commander series, but then the genre sort of died out. Until about 10 years ago, when it was resurrected by a couple of game studios.
Today, I must say my favorite game of all times is a current game, not yet released to the public: Star Citizen.
It's a Space Simulator game but spans several other genres, among them Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing (MMORPG), First-Person Shooter (FPS), Racing and others. More genres will be added later, among them Real-Time Strategy (RTS) and Simulation (SIM), where you can run a farm or a factory. Because the game spans many genres and is in many ways not genre-typic either, the creator, Cloud Imperium Games (CIG), call it a First Person Universe game. For instance, skill levels doesn't exist in Star Citizen and you cannot ascend to a higher level in the game artificially. Instead, you learn personal skills through training in your occupation/profession, just as you would in real life. Because of this, an occupation isn't easy to master in a flash. You can start with easy stuff but it takes training to become good at it, whether you're bounty hunting, mining, or other things. There's also no "win" situation. Your character progress through skills and achievements and there's no end goal.
Star Citizen is still in Alpha (v 3.18 currently) but is open for all with a game account -- if you don't mind experiencing some bugs. It contains many things to do, such as shoot-em-up, trading and cargo hauling, bounty hunting, exploring, mining, salvaging, and more. You can also choose to be an outlaw and prey on other players. Star Citizen is known for its massive and beautiful planets, where you can freely fly, park your ship and walk around. There are no skyboxes. When you stand on a planet and look up towards a moon, you see the moon as it is in relation to the planet and you can fly from the planet to the moon without taking your eyes off it and land on the moon. Planets and moons also have day/night cycles. Persistence ensures you can place a crate in the woods for someone else to pick up (or others to accidently find).
The core of the game is a space simulator though and you can fly your own ship with a crew of friends, if you like. While you pilot the ship, your friends can man the turrets or manage shields, for example. In Star Citizen you can fly seamlessly from space down to a planet or moon, walk from the ship and into an area with "enemies" you can FPS with. All is seamless with no scene changes. Or you can do Extra-Vehicular Activity (EVA) from your ship and board other ships through the vacuum of space, then continue FPS inside the other ship and perhaps take it over. Inside your ship you can walk around seamlessly from cockpit to all other parts of the ship. Explorer type ships have a bed you can use to log out, and when you log in again later you wake up in the same bed at the same location where you parked your ship. The game has alien races and alien ships.
CIG is simultaneously developing a single-player version, called Star Citizen Squadron 42. This game will most probably be released first, then the MMO later. There's no release date for either games at this time.
Do ask me if you wonder about something in Star Citizen. 👍
