Championship Manager, Wow, CoD 4, GTA, CS, Duke Nukem, Doom, Diablo, Secret of monkey Island, Starcraft have all had a fearsome thrashing.

Too many to list!


The force is strong with this one!

For me its hard to narrow down to one game. I have played most FPS since Duke nukem, Wolfensein, All the Half Life series, and the COD series. I guess Dukenukem was the game that got me started, so will go with that.

Only one game to pick? I have too many favourites to list, but for today I'll pick Battlefield 1942. It was the kind of game I imagined in the 80s. When it was announced it seemed to good to be true. Then when it was released, it was everything and more. I have no idea how much time I spent on that game, or the Desert Combat mod for it. Would be hundreds of hours. For me, it was a game with many classic moments, sometimes just watching how other people played the game was fun. The intro remains one of my all-time favourites.

My vote would have to go to Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, with honourable mentions to Doom (the first game to ever scare me senseless), Summer Games on the C64, and Battlefield Bad Company 2 (for online play)

Tough one, but Borderlands, Timesplitters (the series), dynasty warriors (series), mario kart racing (original), elder scrolls series

Dynasty warriors only there because i played so many of them on the PS2
Timesplitters because they were amazing FPS's, miss them dearly...
Mario Kart because that was my childhood Tongue out
Borderlands because I've never had so much fun playing co-op on a game as I have with this one.
Elder Scrolls series because the games just blow me away each time, many hours on them all.

Civ IV (with Civ V due next month!).

Then Silent Service 3, then GTA 4, then Fallout 3, then ....

Based on $100/game, I reckon I've spent about way over $10k on games over the past 15 years, and I didn't completely finish most of them. Still, better than smoking.

tWIN kINGDOM vALLEY- I think it was on the BBC B, or spectrum 48, or maybe ZX81, but i think the ZX81 only had x`s chasing 0`s. Twin Kingdom was agreat game, very basic adventuring and, collecting gold and killing trollsetc, i was addicted 20 odd years ago.

Mine is definitely Battle for Wesnoth. If you don't know it, it's an open soucre TBS. I found it four years ago or so because my gf at the time had a Mac and there weren't that many games that I could play on it.


and it's AMAZING

I have played through all the custom and user-made scenarios, but there are always more being made (open source) plus am trying to make a few of my own.

AND now I have it for iPad.

If anyone else on geekzone plays Wesnoth, I would love to know about it. PM me and we can have a battle.

Also Ghost and Goblins on C64 never gets old. EVER.
