And the two greatest games in the world are....
« on: September 07, 2005, 03:14:25 am »

1st place goes to STAR CONTROL 2, and its successor THE UR-QUAN MASTERS!

For being a damn fine game that I love playing over and over and over and over again Cheesy.

2nd place goes to RELENTLESS (or Little Big Adventure)

For being just slightly less damn fine than Star Control 2!

Both fantastic games.  I'm so proud you developers of UQM, I was overjoyed when my brother discovered it back in the days of 0.1.  I didn't really play it then because I was using Win98 and I would regularly boot into DOS to play SC2, but once it hit... 0.2?  The first one when it was finishable but didn't have the intro or ending sequences anyway I got right into it!!

I'm having a lot of fun just sitting here at work wishing I was at home playing it *sigh*.

Best game EVER

Oops, how could I forget Transport Tycoon?  I wasted probably about the same amount of time playing TTDLX as I did playing SC2 and LBA, if not more!!

Hah!  I'd almost completely forgotten about that great old classic, Relentless.

1) SCII (and UQM) is definitely my first place.  Gamespot declared it one of the 10 best games of all time, btw.
2) X-Com: UFO Defense
MOO-2 was fantastic, too.. and Warcraft and Starcraft are still the best multiplayers I've seen (although I've been out of that scene for half a decade..)

1) Starflight
2) Battlezone 2
3) Mechwarrior 2
4) Starcontrol 2 (UQM)
5) Starcraft (plus Broodwar Expansion)

I know that looks bad, but if you look at Starflight and Starcontrol as the same game, it averages out to 2.5th place or something.
