What's your favorite game of all time?

Post by Ultimarok »

Mine is EarthBound. Mainly because I love RPGs and because of its quirky humor, gameplay and overall weirdness. In fact, EarthBound started my fascination with weird/trippy/hallucinogenic/surreal/psychedelic games.

How about y'all?

Can't pick just one...

"Empire - Wargame of the Century"
"Ultima VI"
"Robotron: 2084"
"Tempest"
"Baldur's Gate I"

Almost forgot..."Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" - text-based, for the Apple II.

Probably the original Tomb Raider which got me into action adventure games with puzzles involved too. The rest of the series and the recent reboot has wasted many hours of my life :lol:

Alicia Vikander is awesome as Lara too in the newer Tomb Raider film and there's apparently a sequel in the works.

The first two movies with Angelina were pretty poor in comparison but at the time I enjoyed them because Angelina...

Ever since I got it on launch day, my favorite game has been Portal 2. Such fun puzzles, and the story is best in class. Runs great on basically any PC as well! :D


In no particular order, here are some other favorites: Minecraft, Portal 1, Grand Theft Auto V, Life is Strange, and The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.

My favorite quarter-eater was Defender. These days I am happy with Mahjongg and Sudoku.

Another good game. Used to play it when I went to Big Wheel with my parents (or tagged along with anybody else). Way before Defender or Pac-Man, they had an arcade game called Death Race which for the time was pretty good.

The original Need For Speed is still one of my favourites. Jane's USAF was a blast too, landing on an aircraft carrier in the dark during a storm was challenging.
