    for the DotA guys, have you tried League of Legends? DotA/LOL are made by the same creators. it suited me much better than Heroes of Newerth did. Oh, did I mention its entirely free?

    I'm 33 and I still say ff7 was the best game ever made..lol.
    This is preference not age discrimination. I think he had a great list. I didn't want to go as far back as FF2, because most of you likely never even saw it.
    I have a close tie with ff7 and ff2.

    FF3 was better than FF2. But if I remember correctly (I may be wrong) but I think FF3 was FF4 or 5 in Japan. For some reason I remember them skipping a number in the US and renaming it 3 to make up for it.

    strategy : Fallen Haven http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjyVVAJi9PY the corny music, crappy graphics etc, but back then i played this game for MANY hours, must have thrown in hundreds of hours on my old 486 with my voodoo card, thats like 15 years ago, god i feel old

    FPS, HL2, and all COD games, i personally think they have som nice storys, but especially COD4 got me from the start, and i play it almost every single day. and the singleplayer is nice, and the story is just awesome, almost dropped at tear in the end when CPT Price is "dead".

    RPG, Dialbo2 and exp, nothing better than that, no words needed. cant wait to D3 comes

    Racing, NFS Underground 1-2 is prob the racinggames i played most.

    Yea they did that with like all of them..lol.
    Really made it confusing to know what game you were "really" playing.
    I never did play 3 I think. Makes me want to go get 3. I bet it'd just look to bad for me now a days being spoiled as I am. :(

    I kind of lost FF until 7 came out after 2. Then I got everyone after wards. Even played FFonline for years..lol. Totally a God killer character. I still have it actually, just sitting there in Lakshmi, poor fellah. :(

    I know...Oblivion is a terrible bore of a game yet everyone is mad for it. I do wonder sometimes if it is a Euro V US thing. For example, I think the very best RPG's ever are Gothic 1+2, and now Risen is also damn good. (British) Friends that I have who are into playing RPG games have all tended to totally love the Piranha Bytes RPG games, whereas they have all found Oblivion totally shit, without exception.....and rightfully so. Yet the mass consensus seems to be that Oblivion is the best RPG of all time, whilst the Gothic 1+2 and now Risen receives a lukewarm response from gaming community and media alike.

    The same rule applies to Mass Effect....everyone I know who played got bored quick including myself, yet it's a 'classic' apparently.

    It's like a totally upside down world to what it should be.

    On the topic of the thread, BFBC2 ruined BF2 for me. After a few rounds on BFBC2, I was totally aghast at just how 'off' the infantry game in BF2 is and how nerfed the guns all are. This is a great shame as BF2 is still definitely the better game overall.....if only I could get back into it.

    Japan-anywhere else
    FF1-FF1
    FF2-not released
    FF3-not released
    FF4-FF2
    FF5-not released
    FF6-FF3

    Starting with Cloud & Co. the names are the same already. The previously unreleased games were re-released this decade. If you want to play all the main characters (and "main antagonists") play Dissidia. :p

    I'd have to say that my favorite game experience of all time is Final Fantasy 1 on the NES, in my mind no other games can compare to how awesome that game was the first time through. There are still plenty of games out there that I love and enjoy, but I wouldn't put them above FF1.

    I still have my NES and the original cart, all fully functional. I'm going to play through FF1, The Legend of Zelda and Dragon Warrior again sometime soon.

    Shame though that nobody's mentioning Suikoden I & II. Even with the arrival of 3D RPG's in the Playstation the two Konami games more than held their own against what Squaresoft has to offer, even with the latter having a 3D advantage. The great characters, in-depth plot and the fact that there are 108 characters to recruit offset the 2D graphics and effects (although there were 3D rune effects in II).

    Thanks for the reminder! I think one or both of those games are available for download from the PSN. I may have to look into it.

    As a hardcore nerd for Civ series, HL2 really turned me into a FPS style psycho killer, unfortunately the cheating and shit of so many other games has turned me off until something of the GTA, or HL3 class comes along.

    It was epic in every way. Graphics werent top-par even for the time, but with the modding system, you can make morrowind look just as good if not better than stock oblivion, just need texture replacements. NO game even comes close to rivaling the scope that morrowind, even stock with no mods, offered. It was buggy as hell... it looked terrible, and looks even more terrible today (stock)... at times it was even comical how bad the voice overs, text, and animations were... but even with all that, IMO it is still the best game ever made.

    And bethesda games are the only games that I actually buy a new disk when my disks get worn out. Especially morrowind, they are so good that I do not mind buying another disk to support them and thier games. And to reward me, they don't even put DRM on most of thier games (at least they didnt until recently, and even then its not very invasive.) Proof that non-DRM games can be great and make money, if they'd just take the time to make the game worth paying for, which sadly, most game studios do not.
