Chat and discussion not related to either Marathon or Aleph One. Please keep things at least mildly interesting, though.

A series is not a game. Those are good games none the less, but those are your 13 (if I did my math right) favorite games.

Awesome. Too bad about Sev.


EDIT: Oops, sounded a bit mean there I think. Just a bit stessed from wiring a robot the day before it needs to be done.

In no order:

Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind -- for being such a complete world that really encouraged exploration. So many sidequests and subplots. Too bad the combat was so abysmal because the rest of the game was so smartly made that I can still kill over 100 hours on a new character.

Metroid Prime -- my favorite Metroid game for sure. Beautiful environments while excellently encapsulating what made the Metroid games good in the first place. The rest of the Prime series is mediocre at best though.

Marathon 2 -- yep.

Advance Wars: Days of Ruin -- always has been a satisfying strategy game series, even if it is a little broken. Probably the best portable game I've ever seen. I have probably 1000+ hours on this game alone, and another 1000 on its predecessor.

Half-Life 2 -- a really well-rounded single player FPS experience is a rare thing to find, and of them, most of them are good but rarely great. HL2 has remarkable staying power though, with a good blend of modern and classic FPS game conventions. And it still looks surprisingly good today.

Cave Story, Marathon, Starcraft, Geneforge and Candy Crisis are the only games I ever really play. I know I also really liked both Myst 3 and 4, but I haven't played either of them in a long time.

With no particular favoritism:

1. Marathon 2 + Forge & Anvil [Since the Tools cannot be my favorites alone]
2. Star Trek: Elite Force
3. Company of Heroes
4. A-10 Attack
5. Super Mario 64

Honorable mentions: Team Fortress 2, Red Alert 2, Majora's Mask

These were games I got lost in for one particular reason or another. Something about them felt right, and while I may not play them currently, and I may not have spent the most time playing them of all the games in my collection, they hold special places in my heart.

Too bad they dumbed down oblivion. I hope they bring back morrowwinds complexity if they ever make elder scrolls 5.

I'm very surprised that The Lost Vikings isn't in your list.

Judging by how they made Fallout 3, I doubt it. FO3 was a great game but in a lot of ways it was a disappointment from FO2.

My favorite games of all time are:

1. Marathon, because yea, it was like the 3rd game I ever played (Creep Night was the first, Bonkheads the second)
2. Warcraft 3, because I am so incredibly good at making maps for it, and netplay is super fun too.
3. GliderPro, this is one of the greatest Mac Games ever, I have no idea why, its a shame their community has like 3 people in it now though. Don't play the flash version though, they ruined it there.
4. Diablo 2 LoD, even though running around with a Hammerdin or a Skeleton Necromancer got boring after a while.
5. Age of Empires 2, it was 1000x better than AoE 1, and I've never really played AoE 3 but it looks kind of stupid. The campaign was super fun, although playing custom games against Hardest computers takes forever.

I have played more modern games than these, but they never seem to have the same charm.
