Got to thinking about this when the Tomb Raider theme came up on my YouTube playlist.

I think that the original Tomb Raider is still possibly my most favourite game of it's time and I still feel like playing it except for trying to recreate something that had it's time and place.

I'm going to pick some others though.

1) Tomb Raider (the original) - originality, playability, puzzles, music, shooting monsters. Also a great game to play with friends. Lara.
2) LOTRO - immersive, nice graphics, exploring, massive worlds, great social gaming.
3) Pro Evolution Soccer (PS2) - needs learning, fun against friends, obviously fun if you like football. I haven't played it for years though.
4) The X-Files Game (1998) - felt like being part of an episode, I am a big fan. Did things not seen before. Took some thought.
5) SimCity/Cities:Skylines - classic builder game and taken into modern times with Skylines. Incredibly addictive.
6) Theme Hospital (PS1) - addictive in a similar way to SimCity, but with injected humour.
7) Lords of Midnight - ZX Spectrum. Still fondly remembered by me. Like chess on a grand scale.
8. Gangsters - Addictive old PC game about running the mob.
9) Vanishing of Ethan Carter - wonderful graphics and a return to more classical adventure games. Still underplayed by me, but one of the newer games to stand out for me.
10) Neverwinter Nights - an RPG game inspired by Dungeons & Dragons. Basic graphics now, but lovely animations and spells. The best interpretation of D&D outside of pencil and paper for me.

Well that's ten, in no particular order, except I think Lara tops it for me, have you got some to share ?  Smiley

A lot of old classics in there Freddy, some nice choices and some I've never heard of.

A top ten games list will take some serious contemplation on my part.

Will have to get back to ya.

But for now I give you Oblivion, I wonder if anyone knows who the voice is Tongue.

It doesn't have to be definitive  Grin

There's plenty of games that might have pipped those ones that came to me off the top of my head mostly. Like Medal of Honour on the PS2, GTA Vice City which would be on my definitive list and Return to Castle Wolfenstein.

Terry Pratchett played and loved Oblivion, I got that from an interview he did on TV one time.

Oh it's Captain Picard - at first I thought it was Gandalf Smiley

Okay be definitive - it's all good Smiley

Pratchett's books would be on my list of favourites.

Comfort the Disturbed! Disturb the Comfortable!

A list of that sort is as fluid as air, really. Currently, I'm enjoying a Windows Store game called Asphalt 8: Airborne. A few months back it was Trove, and before that, who knows? I know that Perfect World was in there, as well as Star Trek Online, and many, many others. My favorite game of all time has got to be Final Fantasy XI, and my earliest memory of a favorite (home computer) video game was Archon, for the Atari computer, which was a sort of "Battle Chess" type of game. As far as actual arcade games go, that's easy: Battlezone - A vector graphics game where you control a powerful battle tank in a huge area filled with obstacles, taking on other tanks, and smart missiles. I think I might want to try to find a modern version of that game, so I can have "Nostalgia Fridays". Smiley

Perfect World was one I had not heard of and I never got around to playing any of the Final Fantasy game, but they looked like good games.

How about World of Tanks Dave ?

The more I'm thinking about this the harder it becomes, I have 38 games on Steam 12 on Upray, 3 on EA games and plenty of old stand alones like Quake 1. Then there was my ZX Spectrum days.

Oblivion (first open world game with level ups that I played, blew me away at the time)

Fallout 3 & 4 (words don't do them justice)

Assassins Creed. loved all of them so far.

F1 Games, All good, F1 2013 possibly my fav.

Quake 1, 3 (you had to be there)

Witcher 1, 2, have 3 also but haven't had time to play it.

Nice selection of games Smiley

Didn't really get into Quake as I was on Unreal I think it was - I was very busy around that time as I was at college and starting or running my landscaping business - so I missed a lot of those early classics that involved a lot of time.

I still have to play the new Assassins Creed game I got.

I've started playing Witcher 3, it's a good game so far but there are people out there that think it is the best game ever.

Better than even Doodle Jump? ? ? Shocked Say it ain't SOOO!!!!

What about Progress quest? It can't POSSIBLY be better than that! Tongue

[side-note] I actually like PQ. It's probably the most useless game ever created, and for that it has a special place in my socok drawer. Cheesy [/side-note]
