(stole the title from the movie thread). Same rules
After playing a lot of Tetris this weekend, the new Tetris (Effect) that is … I think that Tetris is my favorite game of all time, starting with the gameboy version so many years ago. It is so ingrained into my DNA, that I have no choice …
( runner up would be Demon’s Souls but that’s a different story)
Star Control 2 is one of the few successful “kitchen sink” game experience. It has action, strategy, exploration, story, humor, and yet it’s still eminently accessible. It’s the best video games has to offer.
(Sid Meier’s Pirates! has all that except the humor and maybe the accessibility.)
Assuming this isn’t the game to take away on desert island and play for the rest of my life (that would be a very different question), mine would be Dark Souls.
The single true computer RPG ever done, to me.
I never played 3 (I jumped from 1 on a friend’s ST, to 4 on a friend’s PC, where I considered I had beaten the game when I eventually managed to achieve a lock by clearing the space invader radar mini-game and launched a missile). What makes it great?
