    I've heard about that game constantly through the last 25 years and I have never played it, heard a lot of good things about it.

    I think there were 3 of them, but yeah Star Control 2 was my fav and really the only one I remember. I'm thinking you can get this game on the cheap or possibly even free now. Now you got me wanting to go dig up my copy Vilan!

    Here ya go Nymph. 1 and 2 for $6. Totally worth it.

    Star Control 2 is available free at sc2.sourceforge.net for those who want it. They named it "The Ur-Quan Masters" but it's totally legit and supported by the original game creators. Works properly on modern systems and even comes with voices from the 3DO version that weren't available on the original PC version, makes it even better. If you like exploration games at all, you won't regret it!

    1) Lord of the rings online. {Tolkien lore wins hands down}
    2) Call of duty. {The original, united offensive and 2 were the best, WWII. Some of the best times with friends were playing this game. Now, with all this modern day conspiracy #### thanks to our lovely new world order, I don't play this game. But those 3 games, awesome fun with friends.}
    3) World of warcraft. {Open world pvp, end game raiding, flying mounts...etc. Had a blast playing this game, classic and burning crusades that is. Game went bye bye after that for me anyways.}
    4) Metal gear solid 3: snake eater {Ya, for a playstation 2 game, sweet.}
    5) Lord of rings: Battle for middle-earth. {Great game. Lots of fun here as well.}

    I am only able to mention three game (series) that have kept me coming back to them and play them over and over again. These below are the first titles of each series.







    All these games were more or less revolutionary when they appeared on the market, for one reason or the other.

    Dawn of War is still very much relevant with Space Marine launched in 2011 and an MMO being made (according to some), Ground Control is gone and Homeworld is getting a spiritual successor in Homeworld Shipbreakers:



    Lord of The Rings Online have kept me busy the last few months so I am definitely giving it a thumbs up, yet I see disturbing tendencies towards how the game is being developed and the attitude of parts of this community. I am in, I like it and I will keep playing it the way I see fit, but I am also hoping for a mayor overhaul in graphics and gameplay simplicity and consistency.

    Four choices but seven games:


    1. Planescape: Torment

    This had me going for hours and hours, exploring all the avenues provided by the text choices. Only had one original play and about two replays before you'd explored everything possible, but it was the most interesting game I had ever played. Dragged it out of storage and gave it one more shot about 8 years later after I'd forgotten most of it. Almost got the same thrill as first time through.

    2. Baldur's Gate I & II and Icewind Dale I & II

    Dungeons & Dragons on a computer and I did not have to be the DM. Great fun. Damn near wore out the CDs playing these.

    "Go for the eyes, Boo! Go for the eyes!"
    "Squeee-eee! Squee-eee!"

    3. DnD on VAX/VMS

    Ascii text D&D, more or less. Bonus point with your manager at the software company because they saw that you were still "working" when they left at 7PM.


    4. LOTRO

    Because it's fun and it's "Lord of the Rings"

    1. RuneScape - I know, kids game, but hours and hours of my youth went into this. Everything was so immensly simple and still so much fun.
    2. Age of Empires - Legendary
    3. GTA Vice City/San Andreas - Played both top to bottom.
    4. Stronghold Crusader - Loads of fun with friends in a map.
    5. Kings of Chaos - Pure tactics, lot of fun and not needing to spend that much time if not wanting too.

    PC (other than LOTRO):

    - Outcast
    - Ultima 7 (both parts)
    - Ultima Underworld (1 and 2)
    - System Shock (1st)
    - Darklands


    Plenty of others after that (Morrowind and Skyrim almost made the list), but these set the stage for me, so they have nostalgia value.

    [edit] - and you can see why I think GOG.com is the best website ever.

    That just breaks my heart. *cries*

    I play AoE II at least 4 times a week with the new Xpac. I love the Ludicrous size zone!


    Somone above listed Ultima 7 both parts. Totally fantastic game.

    Age of Empires was an awesome series, but I guess one must move on eventually. As of 2014, the top games I play are:

    1. LOTRO
    2. The Sims 3
    3. Orcs Must Die!
    4. Skyrim
    5. TF2

    There is a major gap between LOTRO and Sims 3 cos I play the former a lot more; on Steam I have over 900 hours recorded game time.

    1. LOTRO
    2. The Last of Us
    3. The Uncharted series
    4. The Stronghold series
    5. The Assassin's Creed series

    I could not just list individual games, so I listed their series.
    Riddermark Freeps and Creeps: Morgunith, LM/Hadellost, Burglar/Nukzat, Reaver Rank 6
    Meneldor Freeps and Creeps: Cambanod, Cpt

    5. LoTRo

    4. Balder's Gate (either)

    3. Neverwinter Nights (any)

    2. City of Heroes

    1. Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines (As an experience it was truly unique and a lot of fun!)

    LoTRo might be higher on the list if all my earned TP hadn't vanished after I had to take a break from the game for real life needs.
    I could even be willing to say Wizardry: Proving Grounds of the Mad Overlord is number 5 over it because of that... but also because it was one of the first of such games I have fond memories of.

    My actual list of played games is probably smaller than most anyway.

    In the chronological order:

    1) Zeliard
    2) King's Bounty and as a followup Heroes of Might and Magic 2. (HOMM 3-6 had lesser impact on me as a gamer)
    3) Albion (after this game I fell in love with RPG completely. It is even the only game where I fell in love with a computer character. I got the disc a month after the game's international release and was replaying it dozens of times. Last time 2 years ago, 1995's graphics is good enough for me)
    4) Might and Magic 6 (my favourite of that series)
    5) Lotro (it did take many years of my life)


    I wish there was enough space on the pedestal to mention F-19, Civ 1-5, Elder Scrolls, Fallout 1-2, Diablo 1-2 and many many others... but after looking back at the 25 years of my gaming some games really stand out more, and those I listed.
    Ishtarien - Captain
    Kadarka - MNS 105 / Ishtarel - HNT 105 / Ishtaridas - LRM 105
    Cabernetta - GRD 105 / Ishtari - RNK 105 / Ishti - BRG 105 / Medovinus - BRN 105

    1/ Baldurs Gate (1&2 plus expansions) will always be my first love!

    2/ Sims. All games. Cos i'm a sadist and like to sometimes play a simple time sink where I am god.

    3/ Dragon Age (1&2 - no, I didn't hate the 2nd one lol) Can't wait for the release of Inquisitor.

    4/ Lotro.

    That's it really, don't have a top 5 - I play a game and either love it to death or couldn't care less. I have played many many games, the above are the only ones I would play again and again.

    I cannot believe I missed this part of the post. Ultima 6 rocked. Had a party of 7 people, got to build a hot air balloon and fly over the world, you could jump on a ship and travel the seas, travel over land to get some where, or take one of the underground caverns that sometimes went under the ocean.

    To this day I still have the soundtrack in my head.

    Hi,

    No particular order and lotro not on the list because it's pretty obvious i play it

    Age of Wonders 1. Some of the Maps and campagnes made by players like finger and arctic Wolf are so good ( and hard! ) i still fire it up now and again. TBS at it's best, and the game that got me and my wife playing together. She even learned to make maps on her own so i always had new content. An act of love for sure

    Stalker, all of them really. Heavily modded it's still the fps i enjoy the most.

    Fallout 1,2,3 because War, War never changes...

    Oblivion, OOO-modded. Original leveling-system was just to strange.

    Myst-series. Another 'perfect to solve together'-game

    Hard to pick only 5 really, there are many others, but 5 was the rule, so i won't mention any more...

    Regards
    Gordon Freeman...
