Doesn't matter what platform or what year they came out - Also don't put them in any real order like best to last etc... - Just the top 5 in random order will do - Now rack those brains & let's see what kept you up late at night when you know you should get some sleep for work/school the next day :blink:

City of Heroes/Villains
Elder Scrolls : Oblivion
Gears of War 2 : Multiplay
Freedom Force vs Third Reich : m25 Watchmode
Fallout 3

Here's mine. You'll notice that some of the titles on the list are ones many of you may have never even heard of, much less played. :P

Final Fantasy VI (Not VII)
Shin Megami Tensei Persona 2
Xenogears
Tales of Legendia
Suikoden II (May change to V once I finish that one.)

let's see...
 
Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

Final Fantasy VI (yes 6 not 7 or 8 or any of the others, except the original version of Tactics)

Baseball Stars (on the old 8 bit Nintendo)

WWE No Mercy (as much as I like the Smackdown vs. Raw series, they have yet to surpass that game.  I have a list of reasons why.)

and .... hmm... don't really have a fifth "favorite" but wanting to add DC Universe Online.

No real order:

Civilization 2 or 4
Baldur's Gate 2
Knights of the Old Republic
Mass Effect
Super Mario RPG

Might be forgetting something. Also Mario Bros. 3 and Mario Cart Double Dash should really be on there.

It's hard to pick an absolute top 5, but here are a few that stand out.

Freedom Force
Civilization IV
Neverwinter Nights (both I and II)
Galactic Civilizations II
The Urquan Masters (AKA Star Control II)

I'd also like to throw Alpha Centari in there, but I've already go Five.  Well six, but I cheated to make it five.

Not counting MMOs or more than one game in a series....

Final Fantasy X
Xenosaga Episode I
Mass Effect
Master of Orion II (note: I never played the last MoO, unfortunately)
Shin Megami Tensei Persona 3 FES

(In case it ain't obvious, I prefer RPGs)

Freedom Force would be my #6, btw.

You mean fortunately.  The game was horrible by all account, fortunately,Gal Civ was made later by a different, more sane company.

Fallout Franchise (2 or 3 depending on the day)
Freedom Force (feels like pandering to the forum but I've spent more hours on that game than any other)
Civilization (In particular 4, my dream would be to help design 5)
Front Mission 2 (super hard rocking mecha rpg)
Silent Hill (classic creeper begging for a remake)


I cant believe that PERSONA 2 is on the list... that is one of my alltime favorite games and barely did not make the list. I always felt like nobody else played it.

Well, now you know you're not the only one. :cool:

(You played both Innocent Sin and Eternal Punishment, or just EP? Perfectly understandable if you only played EP, though the JP only FM2 is on your list, so what do I know?) :P

this is really hard for me to pick just 5, as with each generation I've had different expectations. But overall:

-Legacy of Kain series (Soul Reaver 1 got me into this series which has one of the best stories told in videogames, period.)
-Knights of the Old Republic (with much honorable mention to Mass Effect, and all Bioware games, but KOTOR was my first)
-Curse of Monkey Island (imo, the best point-n-click adventure game of all time)
-Shadow of the Colossus
-Halo

I could probably pick my top 10 games per console, easily. Or at least easier that narrowing it down to top 5 of all time. Some of the older NES and Genesis games would have made my list, but right now I have different criteria.

X-Com: UFO Defense - I could fire this up today and think it's better than most game out there
Fallout 3 - I eat, drink, and breathe this game
Baseball Stars (NES) - glad to see it made Ephemeris and Mr. Hamrick's lists
Civilization 4 -although I probably played more of 2 but sometimes nostalgia isn't everything)
Spiderman 2 - best superhero game I've played but it does get repetitive

That 5th spot could easily have gone to XML, XML2 or MUA (same game to me) Hell, ask me tomorrow and I'll probably say those were the best superhero games ever.

4. Link to the past
5. Road Rash

3. WCW/nWo World Order
4. Final Fantasy 7
5. Bushido Blade

1. Freedom Force/FFVTTR
2. GTA San Andreas
3. Fallout 3
4. Mass Effect

4.  Spider-Man 2
3.  WWF: No Mercy(Thanks Mr. Hamm for the reminder)
2.  Shining Force
1.  Freedom Force/Freedom Force vs The Third Reich

Hum let's see...

City of Heroes/Villains
Half-Life 2 (and episodes)
Mass Effect
No One Lives Forever (one and two, can't decide)
Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2

Sticking with only 5 choices is really hard, I could easily replace one of them (not CoH though hehe) with one of the GTA games or The Longest Journey or even Mass Effect 2 (after I've played it more).

Marmeille is the wisest cat ever, EVER!!!
Cool Cape is sometimes made of oatmeal (freaking unstable molecules).

No One Lives Forever (one and two, can't decide)

Dang, I forgot about NOLF.  That was the first FPS that I really enjoyed and got into enough to venture online...I had tried others, but they weren't as fun as NOLF (plus, I would get that nauseous feeling from FPSs...until NOLF).  Still, I'd always preferred third-person games/shooters like Max Payne or Mafia.  Even on the 360, I played most of Fallout 3 with the third-person view turned on.

Same here. 3rd person whenever I can. I get wierd looks when I tell people I play Fallout 3 in 3rd person. :P

My all-time favs...

1- Uncharted: Drakes Fortune and Among Thieves.
2- Twisted Metal 2
3- Warcraft III and The Frozen Throne expansion
4- Freedom Force
5- Shinobi

Honorable mentions: Mafia, WCW/nWo World Order, Force Unleashed, Tomb Raider 2, Splinter Cell (all of them), and Resident Evil 2.
