    Nick, wasn't Grim Fandango a Lucasart game? I don't remember much of that one except it was funny as hell.

    you guys like little kid's games. super mario world? wtf?

    the only ones i've liked are either sports or the occasional battlefield game.
    in no particular order:

    mike tyson's puch out
    fifa soccer
    racket attack (tennis)
    ice hockey (for original nintendo)
    ring king
    medal of honor
    commando
    raiders of the lost ark (for atari 2600, best game ever when it came out, especially if you had the imagination of an 8 year old.)

    Final Fantasy VI - despite my avatar, I didn't particularly like VII

    Tekken series

    Virtua Fighter series

    Streetfighter series

    Castlevania series - especially Symphony of the Night

    Legend of Zelda series - especially the original

    Metroid series

    Yoshi's Island - more fun than Super Mario World in my opinion, and the whole egg-throwing thing is sheer genius

    I'm more than a bit behind the gaming scene these days though, and pretty much the only thing I play regularly is Zangband.

    I'm going to interpret this as a joke; if not, hoo boy.

    But anyway, I can't believe I forgot Monkey Island and all the other LA adventures! They don't make them like that anymore.

    My favorite is still GoldenEye. Endless replay value.

    My favorite of these was Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, if only because somebody finally wised up and brought a gun along.

    Anybody remember Virtual On? Sit-down arcade cabinet, two joysticks, you were a giant robot who liked to blow up other giant robots?

    PC: Deus Ex.

    I love that game. I've done four full playthroughs. It's incredible. Deus Ex is, to me, proof that someday games will transcend entertainment and become a mode of artistic expression, much like film.

    Goddammit I love Deus Ex.

    Yep. Unbelievable game. Shame they ruined the sequel. (Though I admit I played through that twice as well.) I was just listening to an MP3 of the music and I may have to load it back up and play through it again. Amazing.

    I played Virtual On pretty much every day at the Bowling Alley, after school, 7th grade. [​IMG]
