Best. Game. Ever.Follow

a recent poll on gamefaqs.com got me thinking. what is the best game ever? im caught between FF6 (3 US) and Silent Hill 2.

edit: I decided to explain my choices. FF6: because it got me started in RPGs period. many a night I used to stay up until 5am trying to get a Paladin shield or get everyone to level 99 with all spells. Silent Hill2: when i first played it i was too scared to finish it. heh. then I beat it and got the suicide ending and i fell in love with the plot. I even wrote a short story based on the game. (Pyramid Head scares the **** out of me.) if you havent played it I recommend it.

Seriously though, it's very close between the original Legend of Zelda and Chrono Trigger.

Edit: In my opinion, anyway.... :-P

Incidentally, isn't there some sort of SquareFanBoi forum around here to post on? If not, there should be.

ACtually

Grand Theft Auto 3 IS THE BEST GAME... or Vice City.. same thing though.... If they made that an Online Game.... i think it may be bye bye FFXI.. for a bit.

Hmm... I think FF7 does need a spot up on in the rankings. But, Snake or Pong, they were just those addicting games...

It's people like you two that have made most games into the pieces of filth that they are today. If you think that this is the best game of all time, you are either 15 years old and don't know any better, or just so ignorant that you refuse to play anything that Squaresoft/Nintendo/Sony doesn't advertise to death.

Ahh Star Fox was genius.

Phantasy Star for Sega was awesome as well. And Decapatate (not sure is spelling is correct) was awesome as well...something about being a mummy and throwing your own head at the enemy...that was funny...

Are you talking about the E.T. game that came out for Atari back in the day? Because I still have it...hehehe...classic

I've got to give props to Zork.

Personally, Zork II was my favorite.

I've GOT to give mention to a fairly recent game, but it's just so wonderful that it just ranks up there. I also think it's very underestimated.

Sacrifice.

AWESOME game. Sort of like a RTS, only not.

The other game that would make up my Top Three is System Shock 1 & 2.

Anyone who thinks that HALF LIFE had a PLOT and was INNOVATIVE never played System Shock 2. System Shock 2 Makes Gordon Freeman look like a little pansy. Yeah, it doesn't have as many great special effects and stuff, but STILL.

Half Life never made me have to STOP playing for a few minutes because I was too creeped out.

I'm saddened that nobody gave props to Planescape: Torment or Fallout. Are there no western RPG fans around here?

I'm glad at least one person enjoyed the original Xcom game.

It's hard to ascertain exactly what "best" is. If by best, you mean the most hours I've played a game, that would have to go to the original Quake and all its mods. That game sucked up almost all my gaming hours between 1995 and 2000, but I credit that to a very active community. That, and I "pwned" in Quake. ;)

As far as the most fun I've had playing a game, that's hard to put a point on. I'm just going to throw out some games that I love to play.

The games mentioned above
Any Squaresoft game pre-FF8, sans Mystic Quest
Pac Man
Any Zelda game besides Majora's Mask
Ico
Super Mario 64
Any of the Mario Karts
Archon
Goldeneye
Rock and Roll Racing
Pilotwings
Gitaroo Man
Grim Fandigo
The Monkey Island series
Zaxxon
Agent USA

In other words, I love games.

Yes I would have to say that the Fallout games where awesome...especially Fallout 2. I also enjoy playing Icewind Dale I and II...

Another classic that just came into mind is Crystalis for NES... oh man I loved that game. I think it was really the first action RPG game that I had ever played...besides Zelda of course...which I love as well!

****...so many games...so little time.......
