I played Sim City 4, but I like Sim City 3000 Unlimited much better. I guess I just never got into it, and now that the "cheats" are out, it may be a little more fun. Unfortunately, my three most favorite games of all time are for platform systems. Goldeneye 007 for the N64, Ace Combat 4 and Dynasty Warriors 3 for the PS2. But as far as PC goes, I love Empire Earth the Art of Conquest. Jurassic Park Operation Genesis was fun, but only for the first week. C&C Generals is fun, but there aren't as many options as EEAC, and the damn GLA always kill my infantry with that green ooze!!! Oh, I do like Age of Mythology pretty well. I couldn't play Morrowind for more than the weekend, it just gets boring killing rats and pterodactyls all day to build up my character. I guess I like Empire Earth the best in the end as far as PC games go.

Hard to pick one, but the following have stood the test of time:

1. Half-Life, especially the on-line components (Team Fortress Classic and Natural Selection)

2. Battlefield 1942 (+ Desert Combat mod) - again, it's the on-line part that really makes this game

3. Neverwinter Nights - very good graphics combined with a decent plot makes this very playable.

4. Battlezone 2 - better than the original

I have a strong suspicion than Half-Life 2 is going to be something rather special....

I agree Andy, half life 2 IS going to be really special. Have you seen that Half Life 2 Vid, the 500mb+ E3 one? It is amazing. you can dload it at fileplanet if you have a decent connection-

http://www.fileplanet.com/files/120000/123983.shtml

My fav games of all time are-
Half Life (+Counter Strike)
Unreal Tournament (both games)
Some of the C&C games
And although not generally thought of as a contender for greatest game ever, Mafia. That is a quality game with a damn good storyline, something which many games lack.

1st choice is Medal of Honor Allied Assault - Spearhead
2nd choice is Max Payne
3rd choice is Return to Castle Wolfenstein


Just love all the action.

I can't say any of my choices are the best of all time cause there many games mentioned on this discussion that I haven't played.

Just don't feel good until I've played a few rounds of Spearhead.

What would life be like without my PC? :(

the best game of all time is super smash brothers melee for game cube. that is the most addicting game ever. but just to computer games either renagade (lan game with about 5 other people not the single player) or battle field 1942. i cant get medal of honor to work so i dont know if that is a good game

It's all about making that GTA. Got a Lan party going at work, yes i'm talking about even the first GTA that came out in the 90's. Gta/Gta2 are probably the most violent games and funnest i ever played.

What about Tie Fighter? I play it through at least once a year, and it has so many levels, it's soo fun! Sure, the graphics aren't good at all by today's standards, but I'm personally sick of all these modern games that are coming out. They have GREAT graphics, but you can beat them in a day. Or a week at most. I'd take a long, engaging, game that is FUN over some piece of "eye candy". Doesn't mean I don't like some of these newer games, b/c I love MOHAA, Jedi Outcast, Splinter Cell, and others. It's just they don't make em like they used to.

For the PC, I'd go with these:

Unreal Tournament
Alpha Centauri (with Alien Crossfire expansion pack)
Civilisation II/III
Master of Orion II
Any of the Command & Conquer series (had some good network games with RHort way back when :D ).

I'm also quite fond of RPGs, not only the PC but also on the older 16-bit consoles (i.e Sega Megadrive & SNES) - in fact the Mega Drive (Genesis in the US) was the first gaming console I ever owned, and it had some excellent RPGs, beat-em-ups & sports sims (the Phantasy Star & John Madden series plus NBA Jam, Light Crusader, Streets Of Rage, Street Fighter II etc etc).

Think myself and Chris P a few posts up are sharing the same brain-just add GTA Vice City to the list and we could be twins!
