Best RPG: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Stunning graphics; lots of play time; loooong duration advancement system; LOTs of GREAT/COOL add-ons! Note: Thought I'd hate that it was not MP, but... I don't!]

Finally someone else here has noticed how utterly amazing that game is!  :yesyes:

The first time I remember becoming addicted to a game was after trying out Metal Gear Solid (which was voted best game for PS1) for the first time; Such a great storyline with loads of action. I've been hooked to the MGS games since, and I'm now looking forward to the fourth one coming out on PS3 :winkgrin:

I liked this game a LOT, but unfortunately... I did all the stealth assassin storyline missions first (forget what they were actually called...) They were so fun! But after I finished them... the rest of the game was kind of a let down in comparison...  Just seemed repetitive... gorgeous, but repetitive. :'(

I'd have to say currently my fav is Crysis...unbelievable graphics if you card can handle it, and it is NOT a short game. Call of Duty 4 is a close second only because of the length of the game, however, that series has always gone way above any other on attention to detail. I think for ground breaking it would have to be Doom (the original)...I spent all night downloading the 10mb demo at 1400bps and was blown away at the 1 level demo.

THANKS  SLAYTON  FOR  THE  A W E S O M E  SIG!!!

Starcraft and Warcraft 3 online are fun as well for PC.

WoW is fun

NFS Games are lots of fun too

COD4 Rocked my Socks

Cabelas games where lots of fun too

OK, so this is how I see it:

Most played other than Halo: NFS: Most Wanted.  Why? Where else can you get a Chevy Cobalt SS to hit 300 kph???

Second: Guild Wars, Specifically the Nightfall Expansion.  Why? Unlike WOW its freee and has MUCH better graphics.

After that throw Alpha Prime.  Bought on Direct 2 Drive for $14, thought I would be somewhat amused for a few moments, ended up staying awake a whole weekend to beat the game. Loved it.

Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth.  WHAT A RIDE. Thats all I can say.  And Ive read the CoC books and most of the mythos.

hmm...hard to decide. there's a lot of great games right now, but I'm gonna have to go old school on this one. it's either Galaga, Space Invaders, Tron, or Spy Hunter.

Kinda going off subject but i want this post to hit 50 for some reason (its always fun)

This FIFA game i had for the Sega Mega Drive was so awesome that if u fouled someone, u kept control of the offending player, you could then sprint round the pitch untill the ref caught you (ie forever :P)

anyone else know of any all time great sorta glitches in games?

I remember in 007 Golden Eye for the Game Cube, You could turn on the 1 hit kills cheat on a certain level and kill a woman in an in-game sequence and she would squirm around as if she had no bones and her skin was rubber; and sometimes she would fly across the room! :LOL:

(It was fun to watch her!)

It's a close call for some other games for PC, but I'd have to go with the Diablo Series. I have been playing it for a long time now. Diablo I, was actually was the first game that I ever played on PC. Both of the games are awesome and I'm still hoping for a third.

yes!! im not the only ne hoping for Diablo III
