Best Game Ever

I was gonna make this the "Top 5 Best Games Ever" thread, but for simplicities sake (and to make people have to do a little thinking about their choices), I'll narrow it down to the #1 game of all time. So what do you think it should be?

This is a hard decision. I've gone through all the usuals, like Star Craft, Diablo 2, Ocarina of Time, etc. but I know there's something better out there.

So, after a good solid 5 minutes of deliberation, I've come up with this:

Metroid Prime
Holy crap this game is incredible. I have yet to find a game that has made a bigger impact on me than this (Windwaker comes close, but not quite). The bosses are gorgeous, especially Flaghraa, the Parasite Queen, and Meta Ridley.
The storyline is perfect, and is delivered in the best way possible (screw the dialogue sequences from Echoes. Downloading files is the way a Metroid story should be told).
The world design of the various areas of Talon IV is nothing short of perfect, and the Space Pirate station at the beginning has to be my favorite level of any video game ever.
The music is effective in bringing back the feel of the old Metroid games, while still updating it to fit in a modern, 3D game.

I could go on and on... but I won't. This game is godly, and if you haven't played it yet, you're seriously missing out. So go buy it, or if you don't have a gamecube, go get one. They're cheep enough, and Metroid Prime is more than worth it.

Re: Best Game Ever

For computer, Total Annihilation or Warcraft III TFT. Total Annihilation was WAY ahead of its time, in game physics/graphics - everything. It has graphics FAR better than Starcraft, and came out around the same time as Warcraft 2.

Warcraft III... is my favourite game ever. I've played it more than all the other games combined.

Game System: Halo

Retro: Smash TV (SNES) - That game fucking rocked.

Re: Best Game Ever

Uggg....WC III tried way too hard. I think their ambition outstripped their technology up at Blizz. The graphics were awful, chunky and partially transparent most of the time. The zoom feature was nice, until you zoomed in and noticed that everything was a flat cardboard polygon. I much prefered the 2D graphics of StarCraft. They were PERFECT. Still -- 3D graphics can be good...just look at the Sims 2. 360 degree roatation, full zoom, and not a graphic related flaw in the whole game.

Re: Best Game Ever

I enjoyed the game play in WC III most, having four totally different races and BNet gaming (4v4, 1v1, etc) is great. The hero's are cool too...

That was a fucking typo!
And besides my thread was better written and more decisive.

Re: Best Game Ever

Sorry. I actually checked to see if there was a forum like this already, and there wasn't one displayed since yours had dropped off the list.

Re: Best Game Ever

It's okay.

Everyone should know that the greatest game of all time is indeed the original Super Mario Bros.

Re: Best Game Ever

For those of us over the age of 25 who remember the tumultuous history of gaming before the word "own" became synonymous with "conquer", and who actually knew how to manually create DOS boot menus for each game's unique memory requirements...

The epic, warmongering, backstabbing, take-no-prisoners rampage known as "Romance of the Three Kingdoms II". Until you've spent literally days at a time with no sleep plotting the downfall of your enemies, trying to outthink both computer and human opponents simultaneously, you haven't known true gaming.

You didn't use twitch reflexes, button-mashing combos, or strategy guides to defeat your enemy, you used the Ultimate Weapon: Your brain.
