Hey guys I thought it would be a good time to vote on everyones opinion of what your favourite game of all time is!

So only one vote and it can be on any platform, PSX, PS2, PS3, PC, XBOX, Xbox 360, SEGA Mastersystem, SEGA Megadrive, N64 or even the old Atari 2600!

Mine would have to be Oddworld: Abe's Exodus on the old PSX back in 1998, this game is crafted to perfection, it takes ages to clock and even longer to try clock at 100%. This would have to be the best platformer I have ever played, and I still play it today :)

Cast your vote!

of all time?

probably would have to be either quake or half life.

they are the only games I have had the interest to play through more than twice.

After them, total annihilation is probably next - although it's hard to compare cross genre.

Portal, followed by Uplink, Xcom series, Civ, then Covert Action and Elite.

Gran Turismo original on PS1 for the Ultimate time wasting ever...200 Lap race remember playing it 13 hours straight just to finish that and then at the end just wondering why I did it. I think I ended up 50 laps in the lead with my souped up 1200hp Escudo or maybe it was an R32 GTR

Skate or Die on C64

Super Mario Bros original on NES




I have moved across the ditch.  Now residing in Melbourne as a VOIP/Video Technical Trainer/Engineer.

For me, the Flight Simulator series, from start to now Flight Simulator X. Wish Microsoft can resume their development on the new Flight Simulator version! It's been far too long since the launch of the X.

Also, I must say this game has cost me a fortune just to run the damn thing:P

I remember on that game you could win one of the endurance races that talkes place on an oval by simply assigning 'push left stick, right' to turn car right,  and 'push right stick left' to accelerate.  then snap an elastic band to both sticks keeping them together and start the race. come back in 3 hours and find you have won 200 million $ or some ludicrous amount of money  The escudo was so powerful that it would sill easily win the race despite constantly crashing into the walls on the straight
