Zork did make a graphical game...eventually. Travel from game can found in games like Bards Tale 1-2-3 and many of the earely DOS games, the D&D series come to mind

Ok you just won this thread, honestly.

We all know Roberts will iterate until he dies... matter of fact, I think he'll have a couple of alpha builds waiting for us long after he's in the grave. Probably with a permanently rotating ship sale that accounts for inflation.

Farcry 2, just because the continuous resetting of every checkpoint will keep it interesting, there's plenty to see and because via karma I feel like I would deserve to HAVE to play just that.
Make sure you finish the story. Otherwise you have to keep jabbing yourself between checkpoints :D

Nope. That is a collection of 6 games but it's fine by me if you choose it. ;)

btw MCC is on the Steam Summer Sale for $16 if you don't have it but do want it. That's a heck of a lot of gaming for that price.

hmmmmm
honestly it depends on 2 things

2. with friends game

1. tough call, most games are better with friends. (maybe SNES final fantasy/ChronoTrigger)

2. BL GOTY (enhanced) fun times playing crash up derby with the cars and pushing your buddies off the map lol or Terraria, buddies can build while I fish, or I can build while they dig and I accidentally drop bombs down the shaft lol

Benchmark Scores I once clocked a Celeron-300A to 564MHz on an Abit BE6 and it scored over 9000.
I'm glad I quit WoW 11 years ago but if I could only have one game, I'd probably go back to it because it is constantly being expanded and there's so much replayablility.
Does Halo MCC count as one game? That's my pick if so.
I'm still salty that Halo5 isn't on PC. It would be like watching a TV show where you get seasons 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 only.
