I think the original Sonic the Hedgehog is the best game, because after all this time I still love sitting down and playing it.

Best game of all time?

As with some of the people here, I'd have to say that depends on what standard you're using to judge by.

Best game in terms of when it originally came out?
Super Mario World
In comparison to games of any time period?
GTA - Vice City
Most gameplay time?
Alpha Centauri
Most original?
Black & White
Most engrossing?
Morrowind III

There are more than a couple of games that were incredibly entertaining at the time I was playing them - Earthsiege & Earthsiege 2 come to mind.

Pak, stfu.
1) Those are only personal faves
2) I you wrote that with your choices and good arguments, I would stfu myself, and maybe argue politely with you after class .


Omega X: This was a PC list, so stfu too, and don't post pagelong quotes. And if you post one again in spite, trust me, you're not being witty.


Some notes:
I didn't add The Longest Journey to the adventure list because I have yet to play it. And it's supposed to say Monkey Island 1-3. Ignition's category should be Racing Game (3d - Arcade).

Statistically, here's how the top selling games of all time have done.

1) Super Mario Bros. (NES) - 40 Million
2) Tetris (Game Boy) - 33 Million
3) Super Mario Bros. 3 (NES) 18 Million
4) Super Mario World (SNES) - 17 Million
5) Super Mario Land (Game Boy) - 14 Million
6) Super Mario 64 (N64) - 11 Million
7) The Sims (PC) - 10 Million
8) Super Mario Bros. 2 (NES) - 10 Million
9) Grand Theft Auto: Vice City (PS2) - 8.5 Million
10) Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (PS1) - 8 Million
11) GoldenEye (N64) - 8 Million
12) Donkey Kong Country (SNES) - 8 Million
13) Super Mario Kart (SNES) - 8 Million
14) Pokemon Red/Blue (Game Boy) - 8 Million
15) Half-Life (PC) - 8 Million
16) Tomb Raider II (PS1) - 8 Million
17) Final Fantasy VII (PS1) - 7.8 Million
18) Myst (PC) - 7 Million
19) Gran Turismo 3 (PS2) - 7 Million
20) Dragon Warrior VII (PS1) - 6 Million

Ultimately, Super Mario Brothers for the Nintendo Entertainment System literally did the best. Mario is one of the most well known characters in the world as well. You could go to the center of the Earth and ask the Vril-Ya who Mario is, and they'd probably know.

I'd have to say Final Fantasy 7, personally.

I just got back from playing Chrono Trigger. It's definitely the best game ever, and I'm glad to know more people agree with me on that one. Definitely a great storyline, good characters, nice graphics, and amazing music. AMAZING music. I have this great mix of orchestrated Chrono Trigger music. The audio just makes the game so much more enjoyable.

And Metal Gear Solid is a definite second for me. I just like it a lot. Sons of Liberty wasn't too bad either, though I didn't own that one (played it at my cousin's house).

Please note that the rules of the game state that you may only post every half hour or after someone else posts. Thank you.
