    1. I love WWII Games
    2. Best RTS I have ever played
    3. Supports Widescreen by default well
    4. It is a challenge to win online
    5. EA has nothing to do with it.

    I was running it at 1600x1200, but I changed to 1920x1080 to go widescreen.
    It still keeps 30fps avg. on my 8800GTS.

    1600x1200 - Image scalled down to post

    1920x1080 - Image Scalled down to post

    I would have choose BF2, or BF2142 but there where just too many problems and they aren't a challenge.

    Currently UT2004 is my favorite because:

    1. I never got to play online due to 56K
    2. It's free to play online
    3. I love talking to my teammates to win in CTF

    Im mean cmon just the gameplay and graphics alone sold me. Plus Im a HUGE RPG freak and this game fits almost all my expectations. Since Morrowind, which took me about a year to almost fully complete not cheating, have been in love with the Elder Scrolls games.

    it never gets old.
    i love the fast paced action, and i can constantly change the gameply by using/downloading mutators.

    ROME TOTAL WAR
    Best strategy game i ever played
    good gfx
    ea has nothing to do with it

    soon to be: Medieval Total war 2 or company of heroes
    C&C will probabily be a good choice too

    I have a tie for #1

    Gears of War

    -Best (3rd-Person) Shooter for the Xbox 360
    -Best graphics ever, great single-player (even better coop)
    -Awesome (but repetitive) online play over Xbox Live
    -The Chainsaw owns any other weapon out there

    Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas (Xbox 360)

    -Best (1st-Person) Shooter for the Xbox 360
    -The best cover system in any game (better than Gears)
    -Great Single Player, awesome coop
    -Unbeatable multiplayer (surpasses Gears and Call of Duty 3 by a mile!)
    -Tons of Multiplayer Modes to keep you occupied forever
    -Can take a picture of yourself with Xbox 360 Vision Camera

    Both look awesome on my 50" Samsung DLP at 1920x1080! Now only if Microsoft can release an HDMI Cable/Adapter so that I can use 1080p!

    My current fav. game is Dark Messiah. Because it rocks and because ktr said I would not like it. Teenagers think they know EVERYTHING. They don't.
