    I love the Close Combat Series, but since going back to uni haven't had time to play any games.

    Wanna do a 1v1? But we'll have to wait until patch 1.5 comes out, cause patch 1.4 will record your wins as a disconnects.

    Since my finances have been limited lately, I haven't been able to buy a newly released game in about a year but my fav on the PC is Shogun:Total War. On the Playstation, it'd have to be the LOK series.
    AWESOME storyline! And the voice-acting? Superb.

    THE most addictive game ever.

    Oh yeah! I think I played the original version of that, but that was eons ago.

    Blizzard Entertainment

    They set the standards of real-time strategy. Every other real-time strategy is the poor imitation of their original action.

    WarCraft II
    WarCraft II: Tides Of Darkness
    WarCraft II: Battle.net Edition
    WarCraft III

    Brilliant storyline, innovative graphics, dynamic gameplay, real-time response, active unit AI ...

    Hail Blizzard!

    Also played ...

    Global Operations
    Fishtank Interactive S.W.I.N.E.
    Hasbro Interactive Roller Coaster Tycoon 1 and 2
    Chris Sawyer's Transport Tycoon (old yet nice)
    Ubisoft Battle Realms (excellent!)
    Project Earth (not famous but very interesting)
    Project Eden (played the Demo version)
    Delta Force Land Warrior and Task Force Dagger (good games but dirty idea, a pack of lies)
    MechWarrior 2 (I always played Invincible ...)
    MechWarrior 3: Pirate's Moon
    Red Faction (the best role-playing action ever made, GeoMod 3D engine)
    Capitalism II (not bad)
    Slipstream 5000 (it is the only 3D spaceship race I've seen, runs on MS-DOS, low graphics but exciting)
    Zeus: Master Of Olympus and Zeus Expansion: Poseidon
    UnReal (not the tournament, the good ol' UnReal)
    Total Annihilation: Kingdoms (nice idea)
    Sherlock Holmes: The Lost Files (runs on MS-DOS, brilliant for its own time)
    Stupid Invaders (hard humor, alas, never got to finish it)
    Radix: Into The Void (old but well-designed)
    Descent 1 and 2 (remember the Descent fever)

    And the best game ever made ...

    The Neverhood Chronicles - Microsoft and DreamWorks Interactive

    And the other best games ever made ...

    Little Big Adventure 2: Twinsen's Odyssey - Electronic Arts
    Day Of The Tentacle - Lucas Arts
