    MOH is awesome. Nobody listed Super Mario Kart? I loved that game! GoldenEye for N64 is great too. MSG1 for the ps, GTA: SA for ps2. I used to play Star Wars Galaxies (mmorpg) and that game was great!

    I love Puzzle type games.
    Tomb Raider was a favorite. Lara kept me company on the several boring nights I spemt in BFE North Carolina.
    There's one for X-Box called Sphinx I think. I had a good time with that one.
    Brothers In Arms was pretty good but I never played it much.
    Halo is fun for mindless multiplayer entertianment with friends.
    One I never thought I would have really enjoyed is Fight Night, the boxing game for X-Box. Some friends and I were going to try to get together a bunch of people to play and make bets on the fights but that never happened.

    The only video games that I liked (and was not too bad at) were Donkey Kong, Robotron, and Frogger. On the computer, I like the solitaire Mah Jongg and Monopoly. I would like Scrabble, but it cheats. Also Roller Coaster Tycoon and The Incredible Machine, but I don't know if those really count as games.

    Well the only 'video game' I play at the moment is Yahoo! Chess :rofl:, however the best game I've ever played probably has to be Final Fantasy VII - I wasted obscene amounts of time on that game and it was the sole reason why I got a playstation.

    Oh, well, of course that is ignoring the games I made a couple of years ago, which are clearly the greatest ever introduced to mankind :tongue: :tongue:
