This is going to surpise most of you, but have any of you played Banjo-Kazooi for Nintendo 64? That has to be the best game of all time. Huge levels, cool moves, end on end of power ups... ah... the best. Then some jerks robbed our house... never played it since, but im thinking of buying it on E-bay.


That had to be the best game I have played. IT wasn't the graphics or the memory or online play like other games are bragging about, it head a great story line, great characters, and great gameplay. THATS what a game needs, not fancy graphics or online capabilites.

so... whats YOUR favorite game?

I've pretty much quit playing, but.. Diablo, WarCraft, Civilization, Heroes of Might and Magic, Half-Life.

Favorite of all time is StarCraft. The single player story is awesome and the multiplayer is pure gold.

Wipeout: Fusion, Splinter Cell series, Age of Empires II (got my started with RTS's), Roller Coaster Tycoon, Star Wars Battlefront/ Battlefield Series, and some others.

KOTOR was awesome, and the sequel was a nice extra chance to play with lightsabers. This series is my favorite among single plyaer RPG's.

This contradicts everything RM said, but honestly I think World of WarCraft is the best game i have ever played.

If a game is alot of fun, theres no reason it shouldn't be endowed with wonderful "extra features" like great graphics and online gameplay. But if the game lacks fun or enjoyability to play, then the rest of it means nothing.

Im not saying that Graphics and Online playing are horrible, I'm just saying there extras, if you have a good game, it dosn't NEED Good graphics and online play (though the crittics like that).

What i like about Banjo-Kazooie was that it had great gameplay and there was so much you could do, it was just a great game. There were end upon end of vastly different levels, and there was so many things that Banjo and Kazooie oculd do, egg shooting, boot running, all sorts a things...


Bottom line: It was a great game. And Graphics and mulitplayer online stuff are not what a game should be focused on. (with Halo2... well, meh)

RED ALERT 2!! RED ALERT 2!! RED ALERT 2!! In honor for the nomination for best game ever in the history of the world, please go here and listen to the theme for RA2 (the nominee and winner of course): http://www.cncnz.com/files/redalert/media.shtml#hmmp3 the song is called Hell's March so you know... this song is from the first RA, but it's in RA2 and is considered the theme...

This song was even featured on MTV!! yes... I LOVE THIS SONG!! Lol... in it they are saying: 'We Want War, WAKE UP!' lol... I LOVE THIS GAME TOO!!

P.S. Banjo-Kazooie was fun... i like what you were saying, but it had great graphics!! lol... i was like, 'what's he talking about? BJK had gr8 gfx!!' they are outdated, but at the time they were phenomenal! lol...

my "favorite" game changes from time to time, but right now it would have to be World Of Warcraft. Coming in a close second is Neverwinter Nights, but that's more because it comes with the DEV tools and I like making my own modules and playing them. Now, if we're talking consoles, then nothing beats Contra or Super C on the NES. The other 4 Contra games are ok, and I've owned all of them except for the 1 on the Sega Genesis. But nothing can beat the original gameplay of the first 2.

Harvest moon is fun, Final Fantasy 7 has THE BEST STORYLINE in a game...... of course others would disagree (because they havent played it ) its grafix were outdated at the time... I think... Lots of times youl notice that older games are better, because instead of all the grafix junk they focus on story, gameplay, and.... well, that sort of thing.play harvest moon. The first one was great, but the N64 one wasnt as good... I dont think O.oI couldent save it for some reason so I didnt get far into it though. But yeah, FF7 has got to be the best Ive played. good story AND good graphics. cant get much better than that huh? It does though, cause the music is amazing... not awsome, not realy good, amazing.

PS. My favorite game is probabaly Gran Turismo 4

AOE2 wasn't in 3D. AOE 3 and AOM was.

Exactly. I don't think Age of Empires should be in 3d. Just my opinion.
