Dungeon Siege is fun, and I like it more than most people, but I'm surprised you think it's a top-ten game... It's not much more than a sophisticated hack-n-slash...

I thought it was a beautiful game, yes mostly hack n slash but the graphics were absolutly beautiful and it had a pretty good story. Simple character development and just a fun game to play.

Maybe not top 10 exactly but definatly in the top 25 for me anyway. Replayability and depth is what I look for in a game. Like now, FO3 and Dragon Age have taken all my time in the last 10 months. Smile Both of those games have been the most fun I have had in a long time. Most games you play them a few weeks and then shelve them.

Yeah, when I first saw the game I thought it was a Discworld Simulator.

Turns out - no.

LOL Hardwar is a mad game of trading and has a reasonable plot too. Problem was it was way ahead of it's time and needed more graphical prowess detail to really allow it to shine. If it was remade in the CryEngine2 then it would be astounding Wink

Hard to pick 1...

JA2 + Myth 1 and 2 are very good,
Starcraft and Heroes of might and magic 3 are close second.

all late 90s games Very Happy

I have not played a game recently that can come close to them Sad
...Empire total war was addictive and good but not as good.

I don't know how much attention is paid to new posters like me, but my top three:
1. JA2, with any mod you like so long as it's 1.13
2. Jetmen Revival. Honestly, the sheer thrill of a pixel guy on a jetpack being hit in the head with a nuke is just unforgettable.
3. Hard to choose, maybe SimAnt?
All of these are rather elderly games (SimAnt especially) with basic graphics and plenty of humour. It seems the less the graphics resemble the real world, the funnier it is when things explode.

Incubation? You actually enjoyed that?

I spent my quarters on Operation Thunderbolt. Wasted a whole vacation in Club-Med in their arcade machine lobby. Enjoyed every minute of that vacation, too.

Ok, here it comes:

1. Ja2
2. Far Cry 3 (btw, taking bases on an island and replacing pirate patrols with native patrols reminds me a lot of first JA on Metavira island for some reason, even the colors match - red for enemy and ,well, mostly blue for friendlies). One of the rare games I played all the way through recently.
3. Arma 2 with some mods (not DayZ one, tried it and didn't care too much for it mostly because of difficulty to connect and lags on most servers).
