    Me, I would have to say Resident Evil 4...

    ...but these are right up there:

    F.E.A.R.

    Half Life 2

    ...and my favorite for multiplayer online:

    Day of Defeat (WWII)

    Nice thread squid!

    I am a Nintendo fanboy. Mostly because I enjoy playing with my 7 year old son.

    Our favorite games are the Gamecube Metroids, Wii and Gamecube Zeldas and of course Mario.

    We also loved Kingdom Hearts and Katamari Damacy on the PS2.

    The only games my son enjoy playing by himself are car games like burnout and need for speed.

    I have to admit I can't wait for Wii resident evil. The gamecube version is recognized as the best of them all.

    Cheers!

    I'm not (or wasn't before getting my Xbox 360 for X-mas) a big gamer. But I did play the PC version of Half-life 2 and thought it was fantastic.

    Gears of War was really amazing too.

    Currently I'm fascinated with Guitar Hero II....it just is so fun to "rock" with some of my favorite rock, it's challenging but not so tough you can't enjoy it.

    I enjoy a couple on the PS2, the entire SSX series, Tony Hawk Project 8 and Gran Tourismo 4 is a gas, especially driving a Prius on the Nurburgring. On the PC, HALO Combat Evolved keeps the adrenalin up.

    I spend waaay too much time sitting in front of a screen as it is, so I don't want any game addictions. Back when I had time for them, my favourites were Railway Tycoon and SimEarth. My daughter has a GameBoy I sometimes borrow for an hour or so to conquer the world playing RISK. I don't really go for the blood and guts shoot-em up stuff, which makes me a weenie, I know, but hey, I'd rather be outside. Racing games, like Project Gotham Racing on the xbox, definitely hold my interest. Maybe in the fall I'll have time to build my new steering wheels into a couple of decent cockpits. It's apparently not welcome in the living room for some strange reason. :)

    My wife is currently playing Zelda on Wii, which is why I'm spending time on PC. I have to beat her home so I can play Tiger Woods 2007 on the Wii. We really should get another one. :lol:

    The list is GIGANTIC! However, these are my top 5 favorite games:
    1. Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past (SNES)
    2. Super Metroid (SNES)
    3. Gran Turismo series
    4. Metroid Prime
    5. Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (remake for the GameCube - controller is much easier to use!)

    And then the list goes on...and on...and on...

    Currently: The Sam and Max series. The latest one, "Reality 2.0" was surprisingly weak, but the episode before that one, "Abe Lincoln Must Die!", was hilarious.

    I used to seriously ROCK OUT with GHI, turn up the stereo so loud the walls would shake, jump all around the living room, and seriously act out!

    Surely you jest??? REIV for Wii???? THAT might be THE reason I get the Wii (well, Zelda helps too). I had the 'Cube just about specifically for RE4.... Spectacular, truly spectacular!

    BTW, I read on CNN today, the WII is kicking ARSE off the PS3 and X0.... :)

    Well of coarse, it is the Prius' In Dash Video Game. It is such a thrill to play, rather than watching the boaring road around you.

    Haha, I described driving my Prius like playing a video game and trying to beat my high score to a friend of mine a couple of days ago!

    Um... Diablo II, Fable and the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic series all consumed insane amounts of my life.... I can't wait for Fable II and Hellgate: London

    Super Mario Sunshine, Zelda & Mario Kart. My 11 year old boy is saving for a Wii and he waxes me whatever game we play - you wait, Squiddy, getting old is a humbling experience.

    Think I'll go get myself a pop.

    I used to play "Hunt the Wumpus", but now enjoy these newer games such as "Adventure" (AKA "Colossal Cave") and "Zork".
