    Sid Meiers' Alpha Centauri
    best 4x ever imo, if you like civ you should really gives this a go, it's eaten about 10 hours of each week of my lfe since it was released
    Planescape Torment
    Characters and writing beyond anything thats been done before or since imo, game be good too
    System Shock 2
    Damn good, scared the hell out of me, and I still rate SHODAN as the best antagonist ever
    Disgaea 2
    Tactical JRPG goodness, mixing hard fights with compulsive pokemon style collecting and levelling to lvl1000 just because you can
    Deus Ex
    Classic case of the whole being greater than it's sum, naff shooting, clunky stealth, ugly graphics (even back then), amazing game with amzing story and characters
    Ultima Online
    Oh there was once a time when MMO worlds were living breathing worlds and not glorfied grind lobbies to get to an instance! Hail to the past!
    Eve Online
    And some MMOs still are the above! Internet spaceships are offcially serious business. The MMO that's kept me enslaved for the longest
    X-com UFO defense
    Unfair, unfeindly, unintuitive, goddamn amazing. Remake is good too.
    Yakuza 2
    JRPG style with viceral bicycle to face brawling action, with really good story and characters. AKA "Blowing all your cash on a handbag for a Hostess: The Game"
    Persona 4
    The plot stinks of "wtf" but really pays off (But I advise maybe checking on gamefaqs to make sure you dont get the early fail ending, otherwise the plot wil go nowhere) . Amzing character developement and imo it's still best classic style JRPG since the snes era.
    Dark Souls
    The long transistion from pain to joy was one of themost rewarding things I have experienced in the current gen
    STALKER Shadow of Chernobyl
    Survival horror ARPG , good times with radiation.

    And maybe FFVII and Little Big Adventure 2 Bbecause my 9yo self would stalk me through time and space if he realised I didn't mention them here.

    Elite (simply the greatest amount of entertainment per kilobyte ever!)
    Doom (for bringing moddable games to the fore)
    Command And Conquer (for making Dune 2 multiplayer!)
    Populous (for just breaking the mould)
    Project X (original version) (for being the rock hard pinnacle for 2d scrolling shooters)
    WoW (for managing to outlive all peers, and many newcomers)
    Honourable mentions for StarCraft 2 (polished to perfection), System Shock (not the first first person rpg, but still excellent) and Magic Carpet (for being 3rd person shooter realtime strategy flight sim (flightsim bit is stretching it I know)!)

    So far we have a list of 318 games and it's been a while since any new ones was added. I'll give it till tomorrow then I'll change it to a vote.

    I'm thinking of keeping it simple and have everyone one vote for the 10 games they think deserve it the most.
    If that don't work out I'll think of somthing new. Unless anyone else have any ideas?

    So many here posting of games within the past decade - there've been plenty of real gems in the 80s and 90s too...!

    Lucas Arts games, like Monkey Island series, Day of the Tentacle, Indiana Jones and the fate of Atlantis,
    Sierra games, like the King's Quest series, Police Quest, etc.

    etc.


    You younger generation have missed out on them!

  13. #93
    Money Island, Day of the Tentacle and King's Quest are all on the list.
    If you think they deserve a vote, go vote for them.

    Really? Nobody nominated Zone of the Enders 1 and/or 2? Damn. That's a bunch of balls.

    While 'Wii Sports' and a sodding Madden game are in there. Wow.

    Well I'll throw my votes in anyway, for what it's worth. But damn. Not really an exhaustive or even accurate list, in all honesty. :P

    EDIT: You don't even have Bayonetta. Lol.

    There are quite a few games on there that have never been released on computers, like Zelda and Shadow of the Colossus. You may want to go through and edit the list if you can.

    Edit: Oh, just noticed you changed the first post to say it included console games. Never mind then.

    I'm going to have to say Resident Evil1, it was a the first game that really got my sucked into a storyline. It had horror, action and zombies!!. What it also did was spawn a generation of survival horror games. Nearly every modern survival horror games has elements of RE, look at Dead Space for example.

    I'm not sure I get it, is the list meant to be the games people vote for in this thread? Because the list and the games people voted for don't really match up, and now the site has a voting system where you can choose the games on the website list, which to be honest is just a random list of games.

    One that gets me is Serious Sam, I played these games at launch and sure they were fun games but they werent particularely spectacular other than being a glorified graphics demo in a dated (but still fun) shooter. They werent the types of game that would be raved about, didnt score greatly in reviews, didn't have a large online playerbase and sold for less than usual price in shops. Good games? sure they were good games for a quick blast of fun but certaintly nowhere close to being a game to make a "Greatest computer games of all time" list. Lastly, nobody in the thread voted for them.

    Meanwhile some of the most Iconic, loved and successful games are not available on your list, 2 that spring to mind would be Gran Turismo - The game that basically changed how racing games worked, raised the standard by a massive margin and as a result reaped the rewards in being the best selling game on the PS1, PS2 and PS3 consoles, aswell as being the best selling racing game on a title to title basis (GT5 on the PS3 sold over 9 million), Xbox players have this game and franchise to thank for the existance of the Forza series and previously Sega GT on the Dreamcast and Xbox.

    Then you have Unreal Tournament, it was one of the games that revolutionised online gameplay, along with Quake 3 and Counterstrike these games were played on massive scale at pro competitions and by people in their homes, they were the games at the birth of online play as we know it today. Unreal Tournament had amazing graphics, awesomely fast paced gameplay and a strong mod community, all of the sequals pale in comparison to the impact and awesomeness of the original at its time.

    Neither of these era defining and revolutionary titles are on your list, and both have been voted for in the thread. And why not a 3rd one.


    Panzer Dragoon Saga - You have ORTA on the list, but not Saga? Panzer Dragoon Saga was one of the last big games released on the Sega Saturn, critically acclaimed with reviews that put it on a level to rival Final Fantasy 7 at the time, many people have considered it one of the greatest RPG games of all time, the best game on the Sega Saturn and some dubbed it the FF7 killer.


    I mean there has to be a reason that a game is considered one of the greatest, and most of those lists usually end up with games that had the most impact, that raised the bar.
